Specification of Letters latent.

Patented Dec. 20, 1921.

Application filed. March 3.4, 1921. Serial 1%. 452,360.

"o (5. /0 axe/tom it may con cern Be it known that l, (ll-Linens EDWARD Harmon, citizen of the United States, residing at Require, in the county of l-laslrell, in the State of @lzlahoma, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Display-Stand, of which the rollowing is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in racks or stands for holding articles in convenient and accessible'position, more par ticularly duplicate articles, such as bolts, screws and the like of varying sizes, and has for one Gills objects to provide a simply on structed device whereby the different at LlClQS may be brought into convenient and aoiessible position without the necessity of the person requiring the article to move from his position. i

Anotlvr object Of this invention 15 to so produce a device oi this character so con structed that a. broken or impaired part may be removed without discarding the remainder of the apparatus.

With these and other objects in view the invention consists of such novel features or construction as hereinafter shown and described and then specifically pointed out in the claim, and in the drawings illustrative of the preferred embodiment of the invention.

Figure 1 is a side elevation of the improved device.

2 is a plan view.

Fig. 3 is an enlarged transverse section on the line 33 of Fig. l of one of the casings.

The improved device includes a central standard, preferably formed of a plurality of rods 10 grouped in parallel relation and united by bolts 11 at suitable intervals. Each rod is bent laterally at the ends to form radiating arms 12, the lower arms forming feet to support the standard and its attachments.

Any required number of the rods may be employed but for the purpose of illustration four are shown.

The arms of each rod are in vertical alinement, and disposed between each alined pair of arms is a casing, each formed with upper horizontal members 13, lower horizontal members 1%, and connecting vertical members 15.

The members 15 are connected at intervals l1} horizontal shelves 16 to form a series of superimposed pockets between the vertical divisions 15 as shown. Extending across each pocket is a ledge or stop 17 to prevent the goods falling out.

The members 15 and 16 are arranged in any desired manner to form pockets of any required size or outline, preferably as in to receive articles of different sizes.

The improved device may be constructed of any required size and to form pockets of any required dimensions or numbers for all the different forms of articles, but the improved device is particularly designed for holding bolts or varying sizes in convenient positions for use or display.

The standard members 1012 will prefrably be of rods of suitable size to withtand the strain to which they will be subccted, or they may be constructed of piping any required dimensions. The recepta- I} oi cles or casings are supported for rotation on the members 12 by suitable pins represented at 18, so that the casing may be rotated to bring any of the pockets in convenient and accessible position.

The preferred embodiment of the invention is disclosed in the drawings and set forth in the specifications, but it will be understood that any mooiiications within the scope of the claim may be made in the construction without departing from the principle of the invention or sacrificing any of its advantages.

Having thus described the invention what is claimed as new is 2-- In a device of the class described, a non rotatable standard formed of a plurality of rods in parallel relation and fastened together and each having lateral extensions at the ends, and goods holding casing-s mounted to rotate respectively between said extensions.

In testimony whereof, I allix my signature hereto.
