' uurr JEROME DONOVAN, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

BAG HOLDER.

Application filed February 13, 1924.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JEROME DONOVAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Bag Holders, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to supports for bags and similar receptacles of the type comprising means adapted to maintain the bag open for the reception of refuse or other matter to be deposited therein.

An object of the invention is to provide a support which may be manufactured at inconsiderable cost, and which is particularly useful for the support of bags intended for the reception of refuse. v

Another object of the invention is to afford a suspension bracket for a bag sup porting loop ordinarily positioned in the mouth of a bag of a character which will permit the loop and bag to be sup orted in a plurality of positions and angularly adjusted in avertical plane.

A further object of the invention is to provide improved means for securing the bag to its supporting loop, the means preferably being of a character which may be readily detached from the loop, and which has means for retaining a bag draw string.

A still further feature of the invention resides in the relative arrangement of the draw string retaining means with respect to the means for engaging the loop whereby,

' upon the tightening of the draw string, the

bag may simultaneously be disengaged from its supporting loop.

Other and more minute features and objects of the invention are more closely related to the specific details of the construction, and will become clear as the description proceeds in connection with the embodimentof the invention illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein- Fig. l is a perspective of one form of a device illustrating the invention,

Fig. 2is a side elevational view with the suspension bracket shown partly in section,-

Fig. 3 is a detail view showing the clips which are secured to the bag, I

Fig. 4 is a fragmentary view of a modified form of the invention, and

Fig. 5 is a fragmentary view of another modification.

Referring to the drawings for a more detailed description, indicates a device Serial no. 692,548.

which, in the present instance, is of annu lar shape adapted to fit into the mouth of a bag in order to maintain the bag open. This device, which, ordinarily, will be a loop, the shape of which may be modified as may be desired, has rigidly secured there to a bail like member 11 having portions 12 of its side or arm sections inwardly turne and adapted to engage slots 13 in outwarcl' extending parallel arms 14 formed upon a suspension bracket 15. Extending between the arms 14: are members, such as vertically spaced bars 16, adaptedto serve as stops to limit the upward movement of the end of the bail 11 when the loop is supported in either of the upper positions shown in 2. hen the loop is supported in the he: zontal position indicated in dotted lines, the bail may be placed beneath the lower bar or rod, or, if desired, the bail may be positioned so as to engagethe under sur" of the upper rod, as indicated in full in When not in use the loop and bail may be suspended in substantially vertical position, as indicated in Fig. 2. The bracket 15 is provided with suitable means, such as ings 17, whereby the same may be so to any suitable rigid member, such as w or movable support, depencing upon the purpose for which the bag support is to be employed.

It should be understood that the cha ac 1 of the bracket and of the means for sec ing the loop to the bracket may be met rially modified without departing from the scope of the invention, since the essence of this feature of the invention resides in the provision of means whereby the loop may beadjusted in a vertical plane to a plurality of positions in accordance with the showing-in Fig. 2, the means, of course, beingof a character which will securely maintain the loop against accidental displacement and will suitably support the weight of the matter deposited in the The bag 18 may be of any suitable mate rial, preferably non-inflammable, and should be detachably secured to the loop 10 so that the bag may be readily removed when full and another bag quickly placed in position. The securing meansshould preferably be of a character which will support a bag draw string so that when the full bag is removed its mouth may be closed. By reference to 2 it will be noted that the loop 18 has overturned flanges 19, 20 which cooperate with clips 21 secured in spaced relation upon the edge of the bag. Each clip is formed from a strip of metal 22 bent upon itself at 23 and extending downwardly to form an eye 24 and having its end 25 extending upwardly to close the eye. The edge of the bag is suitably connected to the clip as by a rivet 26 passing through the clip and bag material, and the clips are adapted to be engaged beneath the flanges 19, 20 in the manner shown in Fig. 2. The eyes 24: serve as means for receiving the bag draw string 18" and for supporting the draw string in such a way that it may be drawn taut to close the bag mouth with a minimum of resistance.

The clip construction disclosed may be readily modified within the scope of the invention; for instance, in Fig. i there is shown one modification of the invention in which the loop 27 has an inwardly rolled up per edge 28 which is provided with a plurality of depressions 29 to form seats for clips 30 secured to the upper edge of a bag 18. The clips are provided with hook portions 31 fitting over the upper edge of the loop in the seats 29 so that the clips are flush with the top surface of the loop. This permits a cover to be applied to the loop and to tightly seal the bag mouth while it is being maintained in position upon the support. The clips 30 have outwardly extending loop portions which form eyes 32 for the retention of the draw string and depending parallel portions 33 between which the bag may be secured, as by means of rivets 34.

The structure shown in Fig. 5 is substantially similar to that shown in Fig. 4 with the exception that the draw string retaining eyes 35 are formed at the lower end of the outer strip 36 of the clip, the clip being pro vided with hook portions 37 fitting over the upper edge of the loop. It will be observed that the eyes 35 upon the clip are positioned below the bottom edge of the loop 10, and when the bag is to be removed it is simply necessary to pull the draw string taut whereupon the hooks 37 will be disengaged from the loop and at the same time the mouth of the bag closed.

It will be understood that the detailed disclosure in the foregoing description and accompanying drawings is given merely for the purpose of clearly setting forth the invention, and is in no sense restrictive of the scope of the invention, the limits of which are to be determined by the prior art and by the following claims, wherein the invention is more definitely defined.
