' 1. 1: f a k m ar/new r" Be it known that 1, JAMES AadDIlN N, a citizen of the Uniteql"tates,f residing at nsu'ain'theca n mt ills e anq fit t of P1 Ma ichuset slave iateata ae sad a ful Improvements in Article Holders, of

which the following is a specification.

This invention "relates to a device for j which is adaptedtobe attachedflt o a ladder and to hold the pail pf. paint .rnan npright position irrespective of the incllned poby the carpenter when shingling a roof. 1 i The invention consists in the combination 5 and arrangementaof' parts set forth in the following: specification and particularly a 2'0 pointed out in the claim thereof. Referring to the drawings:

= l a Figure liis a front elevation of'a portion of a ladder with my improved device for a a. K holdinga pail of paint in operative posij25(tion thereon, the pail of paint being indicated in dotted lines and the ladder being Y broken away. k Fig. 2 is a side elevation taken from the lright of Fig'l with the ladder in an inclin'e'd position. I Fig. 3 is a plan view of the same with the side rail of the ladder shown in section.

1; ladder with my improved artlcle holding 35 device attached thereto and a" holder for holding shingles in position when used on a roof in connection therewith.

.Fig. 5 is a front elevation of the holder a j illustrated in Fi 4;. 9, v Fig. 6 is an erfiarged plan view of a por- 1 tion of the device of my invention. Like numerals refer to like parts throughout the several views of the drawings. In the drawings, referring to Fi s. 1, 2, and 3, 8 isthe side rail and 9 the rungs of a ladder. 10 is a bracket having two side portions 11 and 12 which are connected by a cross portion 13, said side portions having a g i a channel 14 therebetween to receive the side rail 8 of a. ladder. The bracket 10 is clamped to the side rail 8 by clamp-screws :15 which have screw-threaded engagement with the side portion 11 of the bracket 10 a and bear against the side rail 8, forcing it against the side portion 12.

The bracket 10 has a pintle 16 thereon,

i I? holding articles such as pails ofipa intand' like ar sitionloat the ladder. vfllne .clevi e is a so adapted tobe used to hold a quantii yiQi shingles in position to be conveniently used a Fig. 1 is a side elevation of a portion of a the median .axiallinefef. which is su bs tania lv was t the ive- 19 4. n m iary bracket 17 is pivoted on the p ntledti and has a bore 18 which receives. 1 a ournal l aid was havi et h eth et and rmls a ma t es thsreef. an .ax n ar rm W ts hold ,thesa ne in an uprightaposrtion. :The

annula a m wand he ylindrical h 19 f rm 9 consequently of the holder 29, is arranged substantially atright ,ianglesu o; th median .lr i ixilill zhne of the pintle 16.

The auxiliary bracket 17 is split at 22 and is provided with ears 23 and 24, the ear 24 being screw-threaded to receive a ether a'holden 29 for the pail 21.

i ada t d ta re vwna l 2. nd a am aria l n awash and clamp screw 25 which is provided with a handle 26 shouldered at 27 to bear against the ear 23 and thus clamp the cylindrical journal 19 in the bore 18 ofthe auxiliary bracket 17. The auxiliary bracket 17 is fastened to the pintle 16 by a set-screw 28.

The operation of the device illustrated in Figs. 1, 2, 3 and 6 is as follows: The ladder being in an inclined position as illustrated in Fig. 2, the clamp-screw 25 is loosened to allow the holder 29 to be set in a horizontal position and said clamp-screw is then tightened to grip the journal 19 in the bore 18 of the auxiliary bracket 17 If it is desired to swing the pail outwardly or inwardly toward the building against which the ladder rests, the set-screw 28 is loosened and the auxiliary bracket is rotated about the pintle 16 until it assumes the desired position,

whereupon it is again fastened to the pintle I 16 by tightening the clamp-screw 28.

To move the device bodily to different positions on the ladder, the clamp-screws 15 are loosened and when the device has been moved to the desired position on "the side rail Ssaid clamp-screws are again tightened.

In Figs. 4 and 5 a modified form of holder is illustrated, the device being in all other respects like that hereinbefore described and illustrated in Figs. 1, 2, 3 and 6. Referring, now, to the form of holder illustrated in Figs. 4 and 5, the cylindrical journal 30 has an arm 31 thereon which consists of a cylindrical portion 32 with arms 33 thereon to which is fastened a shelf 34. The journal 30 is inserted in the bore 18 of the auxiliary bracket and is clamped to said auxiliary bracket by means of the handle 26 and
