specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Aug. 31, 1920.

Application filed May 3, 1919. Serial No. 29 L362.

1 b all whom it may concern: I

Be it known that l, Aminn'r BUGKEL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Peru, in the county of La Salle and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sack-Holders; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to bag holders and the primary object of the invention is to provide an improved and simple means for holding a. bag or sack in an elevated and opened position, so as to facilitate the filling thereof.

Another object of the invention is to provide an improved sack holder of the above character, which is durable and efficient in use, one that'is simple and easy to manufacture, and one that can be placed upon the market at a reasonable cost.

With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the novel construction, arrangement and formation of parts, as will be hereinafter more specifically described, claimed and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, forming a part thereof, in which:

The figure is a perspective view of the improved bag holder.

Referring to the drawings in detail, the numeral 1 generally indicates the improved bag holder, which includes a bracket 2 formed from a piece of strap iron bent to form a substantially U-shaped member 3 including the upper bight portion 1 and the downwardly extending legs 5. The bight portion is provided with suitable openings 6 for receiving bolts or other suitable fastening elements 7, whereby the legs may be secured to a wall or other support 8. The lower terminals of the legs have secured thereto a transversely extending bar 9, which extends beyond the side edges of the legs and one end of this bar is bent at an angle of substantially forty-five degrees outwardly to form a supporting arm 10, which has the free end thereof curved outwardly as at 11. The opposite terminal of the arm 9 is re duced and bent forwardly as at 12 and is provided with a hooked end 13, for receiving one terminal of a contractile coil spring 141-, which has the opposite end thereof secured to an outwardly extending plate 15 secured to the second supporting arm 16. The inner end of the supporting arm 15 is hingedly secured as at 17 to the member 9 adjacent to the arm 10, and this arm is normally held away from the arm 10 by the contractile coil spring 14. The plate 15 is provided with, a plurality of openings 18 for receiving the inner terminal of the coil spring 14, so as to permit the tension thereof to be readily regulated. The free terminal of the arm 16 is bent inwardly as at 19 and the bent terminals 11 and 19 of the arms 10 and 16 are provided with outwardly extending prongs 20 which are adapted to penetrate a bag or sack 21 to hold the same in open and raised position. The arms 11 and 16 are curved, so as to facilitate the insertion of the same into the bag and to conform to the configuration thereof. The arms are also provided with retaining prongs 22 which are arranged in spaced relation to the prongs 20 and form additional means for engagthe bag so as to hold the same open.

From the foregoing description, it can be seen that an improved bag holder is provided which will eifectively hold the bag in elevated position and hold the same open, so as to facilitate the insertion of articles therein.

In use of the holder the arm 16 is swung on its pivot against the tension of the coil spring 14: to a point relatively near the arm 10 and the curved portion thereof and the arm 10 is inserted into the bag and the prongs 20 and 21 are caught in the neck thereof. The arm 16 is then released, which owing to the tension of the coil spring 14 will open the neck thereof and allow the articles to be readily inserted.

In practice, I have found that the form of my invention illustrated in the accompanying drawings and referred to in the above description, as the preferred embodiment, is the most eliicient and practical; yet realizing the conditions concurrent with the adoption of my device will necessarily vary, I desire to state that various minor change in details of construction, proportion and arrangement of parts may be resorted to, when in accord with the claim without sacrificing any of the advantages of my invention as set forth.

What I claim as new is:

A bag holder comprising a vertical base member arranged to be secured to a support, a bag supporting member secured to the said. base member, and having at one end 10 inwardly and prongs mounted upon the arms some of them at the curved portions of the arms and others at points spaced therefrom.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
