SAGK HOLDER Filed Dec. 15, 1927 I rauen 6024 AW I 5 -9,

Patented Dec. 4, 1928.



Applicatiori filed December 15, 1927. SerialNol 240,137.

The object of this invention is to provide a sin1ple dnrable and inexpensive sackholder '\\'lllCll will have holding attaolnnent to the top of a saok in a 1nanner to support the Sack and hold it in a taut wide-open condition at the 1nouth without the aid of hooks While the sack is being filled to fullest capacity with either light or heavy 1naterial.

A further object is to provide such a saok holder Which may be easily adjusted to hold saclzs of difl'erent dia1neters and lengths with the botto1n of the sack always resting on the floor.

The object also is to provide a holder which which will perxnit a filled saok to be taken 011 tro1n either side of the holder and whioh Will be 011 runners thereby lnaking the sack holder easily portable.

I acco1nplish the above and other objects Which will hereinafter appear, by the 1neans illustrated in the aoco1npanying drawing, in whicln- Fig. 1, is a perspective view of an e1npty holder ready for the placing thereon o1 a Sack to be filled, and Fig. 2, is a view of the holder in side elevation with a sack supported by it in position to be filled.

T he baso of the sack holder comprises two sled-runner-like 1ne1nbers eaoh cornprising a horizontal floor-contacting bar 8, turned up in curves 4 and 5 at its ends and continued in uprights 5 and 6. These base members are lor1ned out of spring metal and they are rigidly conneoted at the npper ends of the uprights 5 and 6 loy respective horizontal bars 7 and 8. The joinedends 1naybe welded together or bolted or riveted as shown.

Bolted or otherwise rigidly secured to the middles of each of the bars 7 and S, are the Standards 9 and 10, t-o eaoh of Which is riveted a pair of spaced apart short olamping bars 11 and 12, Whioh are formed with holt holes in each end. The standards 9 and 10 are bowed outwardly at 18, between bars 11 and 12.

Short bars 14 and 15 are connected by bolts with the bars 11 and 12, at both standards 9 and 10'and co1nplete ola1nps by which the respeotive vertical bars 16 and 17 are adjustably seci1red to the standards 9 and 10. The bows 13 in the standards aid the ola1nps in frictionally holding the bars 16 and 17 at the given vertioal adjustnlent of these bars. Cross bars 18 and 19 are rigidly riveted to the upper ends of the respective bars 16 and 17. They serve to attach the bars 16and 17 to the sack 20 and to hold the n1outh of the ack open. The lower ends of bars 16 and 17 are bent out at 21 to for1n stops Which contact the lower cla1nps and koep the bars fro1n drawing entirely out 01 the device on adjush 1nents. The bars 9, 10, 18and 17 are 1nade of spring metal. l

The operation of my invention is as follows The olalnps are loosened and the vertical bars 16 and 17 are raised or lowered as r-e quired by the length of tl1e sack, so the botton1 of the sack Will rest upon the floor When its top is properly engaged by cross bars 18 and 19. The lengths o1 base 1110111l081'8 3 considerably exceed the 1najor dia1neter 01 the largest sacks likely to be held and lilled so the standards and uplights supporting cross bars 18 and 19 must be sprang inwardly to the sack. In placing a saok in tl1e holder tl1e saoking 1naterial is folded out and down and the bars 18 and 19 are slipped up under the folrh with the result that when the parts are released the resiliency of the uprights draws the 1nouth o1t' the Sack taut around the bars 18 and 19 and the bars hold the mouth of the sack open.

It is apparent that unobstructed access to the sack for filling and for reinoval is allorded by the device and thatthe bends 4- and 5 give sled runner action to the device when 1nove1nent fro1n place to place is required.

Having thus fully desoribed rny invention what I elaim as new and wish to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is-

1. In a sack holder, a pair of upright spaoed apart spring-bars each having top oross bars at their upper ends overwvhich oross-bars the folded top of a saok is seeured, a base comy prising a pair of horizontal spiingbars each having both of their ends extended upwardly, horizontal bars conneoting the ends of the upward extensions, a vertical standard attached to each horizontal end bar and 1neans for acljustably securing a respective upright spring-bar to a vertical standard.

2. In a saok holder, a pair of upright spaced apart spring-bals eaoh hzwing top cross bars at their upper ends over which. oross-bars the folded top of a saok i s seoured, a base comprising a pair of horizontal spring bars eaoh having both of their ends extended upwardly, horizontal bars oonnecting the ends o1 the upward extensions, a veitioal standard attached to each horizontal end bar, a pair oft spaoed apart clarnps for eaoh standard adjustably seouring an u.pright spring bar to a respeo tive one of the vertioal standards said vertical standards having bent portions between its standard attached oo ea ;h horizontal end bar,

a pair of spaced apart elamps for euch standard adjustably securing an upright spring bar 130 a respective one of t-he wrtical standards, said vertical Standards having bent portions between its pair Of clamps frictionally contacting the udjacent upright.

In testimony whereof I aflixmy signature..
