ADVERTISING SIGN HANGER.
APPLICATION FILED NOV-1.1917.
ED STATES PATENT RICHARD E. DEVNEY, OF CLEVELAND, OHIO.
- screen-door handles and the like, which means willhold the signs against loss by being easily blown away by a breeze, but will permit ready removal by a person desiring to read the advertisements on the signs.
In order that the invention may be clearly understood, the same will be hereinafter fully described with reference to the accompanying drawings, which simply illustrate the invention, and the novel features thereof will be particularly pointed out in the appended claims.
In the drawings like characters of referonce designate corresponding parts.
Figure 1 is a front view of an advertising sign hanger made in accordance with my invention.
Fig. 2 is a similar view of a modification.
Fig. 3 is a vertical section showing the sign hanger attached to a door-knob,
Fig. 4 is a cross sectional view taken on line 4-4 of Fig. 3 illustrating the action of the wings when the sign hangeris being applied thereto,
Fig. 5 is a vertical section showing the sign hanger attached to a screen-door handle, and 4 Fig. 6 is a cross sectional view taken on line 66 of Fig. 5.
Referring to the drawings, 1 represents a sign of any desired outline and constructed of paper, card-board, celluloid, or other resilient material. The advertising matter is printed on the sign as will be understood. At any desired position, the sign is provided with an opening 2 for passing over or encircling the shank 3 of a door-knob 4. The sign is cut through or slotted on its vertical center above and below the opening 2 and extending from each side thereof as indicated at 5 and 6. At the ends of said slots and at right angles thereto are horizontal in- Speclflcatlon of Letters Patent.

cisions 7 and 8, which extend an equal distance at each side of the vertical slots 5 and 6 Said vertical slots and horizontal in- C-lSlODS form in the sign a pair of wings 9 and 10, which are adapted to bend on the vertical dotted lines indicated by 11, When the sign is being attached to a door-knob as shown in Fig.4. After the wings have opened and passed over the door-knob, they close by returning to their original positions, due to the resiliency of the material of which the sign is made, and'fall behind the door-knob with the opening 2 encircling its shank. The win thus prevent ready detachment of the sign y the wind.
7 The modification shown in Fig. 2 is in all respects similar to that of Fig. 1 except that the wings corresponding to 8 and 9 thereof are divided horizontally at 12, thereby forming each wing into a plurality of parts indicated by 13. This increases the pliability of the wings.
My present design of an advertising sign hanger, is not only adapted for attachment to door-knobs, or any similar projection having a head larger than the part carrying the same, but is equally suitable for attachment to a screen-door handle such as 12.. In this case the wings 9 and 10 fit back of the vertical part 14 of the handle and their lower edges rest upon its bottom flange portion 15. The springiness of the wings serves to hold the sign against the face of the handle.
An advertising sign hanger constructed as disclosed possesses the advantages of being suitable for ready attachment by a distribua sign constructed of resilient material, the
sign being provided with an opening, the sign having slots extending vertically from the opening, and the sign having incisions cutting through the slots above and below said opening for forming wings, substantially as described.
2. An advertising sig'n hanger, comprising a sign constructed of resilient material, the
' Sign being provided Withen-epeiiing; the.
Sign having slats extending from the Opening, the Sign having incisiens' etthe ends of the slots, and the incisions extending at right ,angles to the slots and at each side thereof for forming Wing's, substantially as desci ibed-n 3.1- An advertising Sign hanger, eompiising asign constructed of resilient material, the
10 being provided with an epeni ig, the l Sign 'lia'vinge 'peirof slots extending fEQm opposite Sidesofthe opening, the sign hav- "ingf inei'sibiie at thejends of the siets, the in- "cisions extending-at. right angles tothe slots end; zit-each sidethereof for fanning wings,
amiithe wingsheing divide inin'e plurality of parts by ineisions extending from their ,free' edges, suii'stantieiiy as iesefibed. f In testimony whereof I efix my signature, .v RICHARDE'DEVNEY.
