DISPLAY RACK. 2

Appneanon inea Juiy 1o, 1924; v semi Navaseoi.

ThisV invention relates to display racks such as are used upon the counters` of retail stores and is especially adaptedl for holding articles with completely enclosed areassuchl l as pocket books with handles, necklaces and* bracelets. e

A particular object of the present miren- V tion is'to provide a structure Which'will'pr'ei' vent the unauthorized removalof any of Other objects and aims of the invention,

more or less specific than that referred to "i`above,will be in partn obvious and vin part pointed out in the course of the following` description of the elements, combinations,

arrangements of parts and applicationsfo principles, 'constituting thelinvejntion; and

'fthe scope of protection contemplated will be indicated in the appended claims.

In the accompanying drawings whichfare toi be taken asa part of this specification,

Figure 1 is apartial verticalv section and j V:tube 7 'comes opposite .hole 14 in tube 5 elevation of the rack, Figure 2 is a plan view 10` taken alongthe line 2-2 of Figure 1,L but V'only showingthe horizontal portion of the yoke and Figure 3 is a. section as indicated by the line 3 3 of Fig. 1. f

The rack is supportedon a basei4 madel suiciently heavy to counterbalance the weight of its upper members." Aftubey carrying a' threaded plug 6 at its lower? end is `fastened to base 4 by'being screwed into`v the threaded hole at the top'j'orfsaid base. ATubet'- is adapted. to' slideywithin tube 6.

Spider 18 is provided with a sign holding device 25.

By using square tubes 5 and 7 and thereby preventing the rotation of tube 7 hole 15 is always sure to pass opposite hole 14 and ensure the locking action of pin 10. Round tubes could also be used, but in this case they would have to be provided with means, which arewell known to the art,'for preventing relative rotation between tubes 5 and?. v

'1.

for locking said T-shaped member vwith said end pieces in engagement with the cross member, said T-shaped member having its stem adapted to prevent its rotation with re-` spect to said tube, whereby said `cross bar with its legs is maintained in alignment for engagement with said cross member.

2. A displayrack comprising a base, a tube supportedfby said base, across member supported near the upper end of said tube for holdinga plurality of objects for display, a substantially T-shaped member having its stem portion slidably mounted within said tube, pins mounted at the ends of the cross bai' of said T-shaped member subistantially 'at right ang-les to said bar adapted when brought down into engagement with said cross member to complete a closed area between said cross member and said cross bar, and spring actuated locking means supported upon said `tube adapted to pass through same and engage the stem portion of said T-shaped member when downin position to close said area.

3; A display rack comprising a base, a

Y member supported-by and extending vertically above said base, a plurality of radial cross membersiixed to said vertical member near its top for holding objects for display, and a movable member having a stem for engagingvsaid vertical member and vertically movable relatively thereto, said movable` member having a plurality of radial cross adapted to engage with .said cross members for enclosing a closed area between corresponding cross members and cross bars when -said stem is moved down.

4. A display rack comprising a base, a tube supported by and extendingl vertically above said base, a spider fastenednear the top of said tube, a pluralityof cross meming a stem slidable within said tube, said movable member having a plurality of radial cross bars xedto the upper portion ofV vbers supported by said spider for holding Vobjects for display, a movable member havl 1` the .stem7 said 'cross bars'correspondingto said cross members and pieces extending downward from substantially the ends of'.V Vsaidcross bars adapted to engage with said cross members for enclosing a closed area be- .I

tween corresponding cross 'members and crossbars when said stem is moved down. y 5. Adisplay rack comprising a base, ya

tube .supported by and extending verticallyl` above said base, a plurality ofradialcross: members fixed to said tube near its topfor j holding objects for display, a movable mem- 195* ber having a stein yslidable within said tube, a spider fastened near the top of said stem, and a plurality of cross bars supported by said spider, said cross bars corresponding to f said cross members .and pieces extending downward from substantially the ends 'of said cross bars adapted to engagewith said cross members for enclosing a closed area between corresponding cross members and cross bars when said `stem is moved down.l

6. A display rack comprising a base, a

supporting tube mounted uponand extending up from said base, a cross member supported by and near the upper end of said. supporting tube for holding a pluralityof 1 objects 'for display, a substantially T-shaped member having a tubular vstem portion slidably mounted within said tube, pieces extending downward from the ends of the crosspiece Lof said T-shaped member adapted whenbrought into; engagementl withy said cross member to complete a closed area between said cross member and said cross piece, the* lower ends of said supporting tube and tubular stem portion being closed and spring' means reacting against said closed ends lfoi'- norma-lly holding up,said cross piece ywith its downwardly extending end pieces out of contact with said cross member.
