Specification of Letters Iatent.

Patented Mar. 23, 1920.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, CHRISTIAN A. LoN- DELIUS, Jr., a citizen .of the United States, and a resident of Chicago, Cook county, Ill nois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Pipe-Supports, of which .the following is declared to be a full, clear,

and exact description.

Thisinvention relates to pipe supports, and its principal objects are. to provlde a cheap, simple and eflicient support for steam pipes, hot Water pipes and the l1ke. Another object is to provide a support that may be struck up from a single piece of sheet metal. Other objects and advantages will appear in the course of this specification and with said objects and advantages in view this invention consists in the several novel features hereinafter fully set forth and claimed. i

The invention is clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which: 0

Figure 1 is a front elevatlon of a p1 e support embodying a simple form of t e present invention, showing fragments of a number of pipes supported thereby; Fig. 2 is a side elevation looking in the direction of the arrow 2 in Fig. 1 and showing the pipes in cross section, and Fi 3 is a plan of the device and a fragment 0 a pipe.

Referring to said drawing, the reference character 5, designates the support and 6, designates a number of pipes supported thereby. The device is preferably struck up from a strip of sheet 'metal and comprlses two spaced base portions or wings 7, from which extend to oblique side portions 8, that converge toward each other and are united along the front edge as at 10. The side portions 8, arenotched out to leave tongues or tangs 12, which preferably incline in an upward direction. 'Their upper edges 9, form seats upon which the pipes rest. Holes are punched in the base portions or wings 7 and bolts, screws or nails 11, ma be driven'through-said holes-into the we 1' or other object upon which the support is to be fastened.

The device may be struck up from long or notched, side portions extending from short strips of sheet metal, and they are the middle lineof the strip; the strip is then struck up with suitable dies to assume the shape shown in Fig. 3, and the bolt or nail holes formed in the wings. In the finished product the downwardly sloping holes form the notches seen in Fig. .2, and the metal between them forms the tongues or tangs.

The support is particularly useful in garages, or other large buildings where steam or hot water pipes are used for heating purposes. The supports may be fastened to the walls, posts or other suitable members of the building, and the steam or hot water pipes may be laid on the seats 9. The upward inclination of the tongues 8 insures the retention of thepipes on the seats, without the aid of additional securing means.

More .or less variation .of the exact details of construction is possible without departing from the spirit of this invention;

I desire, therefore, not to limit myself to the exact form of the construction shown and described, but intend, in the following claims, to point out all of the invention disclosed herein.

I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent:

1. A pipe support comprising a strip of struck up sheet metal, having two spaced base portions and two notched side portions extending therefrom and united along the median line of the strip.

2. A pipe support comprising a strip of struck up sheet metal having two spaced base portions and two united side portions extending therefrom, said side portionsbeing notched to leave tongues therebetween. 3. A pipe support comprising a strip of struck up sheet metal oonsistlng of two spaced base portions and two convergingd,

sai base portions and united at the front, the

tongues between said notches inclining up-v wardly and forming seats for the pipes.
