:BAG HOLDER Application led December 18, w28. Serial No. 326,806.

This invention relates to bag holders such as used for example in laundries to support bags in an open position for filling or empty ing the same.

The general purpose of the invention is to simplify bag holder constructions, and particularly t0 provide bag holder constructions into which bags may be readily mounted or removed at one side of the holder in a simple, effective way. f

A further object is to provide such constructions with bag holding elements so formed that the upper edge of the bag may be easily folded downwardly about the same to suspend the bag thereon and so that the bag is held wide open at the top and cannot slip off.

rlChe foregoing and other objects of the invention are attained in the bag holding devices illustrated in the accompanying' drawings and more fully described below. It is to be understood that the invention is not limited either in construction or application to the specific forms or uses thereof illustrated and described.

Of the accon'ipanying drawings,

Figure 1 is a. side elevation of a bag holder embodying the invention;

Figure 2 is an end elevation thereof;

Figure 3 is a plan thereof;

Figure 4 is an elevation ofv another embodiment of the invention; and

Figure 5 is a plan thereof.

Referring to the drawings, the numeral designates a portable truck or carriage preferably having castor wheels 11, 11 whereby it may be easily moved from place to place. @n three corners of truck 10 there are mounted uprights 12, 12.

Arranged between uprights 12 at one end of the truck is a cross bar 13 supporting one bag holding velement 14. This element is upwardly and outwardly directed as shown at 14a (Figure 1), and is curved downwardly and inwardly at its ends at 14h, 14b so that tension in the cloth of the bag, indicated at B in dotted lines in Figure 1, with the top folded downwardly of the element serves to securely suspend the bag in the holder with its top opened the width of the element. A corresponding element is illustrated at 15 opposite element 14, both said elements preferably being formed of rods bent to the desired shape, the ends thereof being attached to the supports therefor.

Element 15 is mounted on an arm 16 pivotally and slidably mounted at 16a on a longitudinal bar 17 supported between the uprights 12 ion one side of the truck. The element 15 is accordingly adjustable toward and from element 14 whereby the device is adapted to receive bags of different sizes. In order to supportarm 16 horizontally in its adjusted positions, a ratchet bar 18 is supported between uprights 12 paralleling bar 17, and having notches 18a into which arm 16 may' engage whereby adjustment of the arm is ef fected by rst swinging the arm upwardly and sliding it along bar 17, then dropping it into a notch on bar 18.

It will be observed that one side of the bag holder is open, facilitating the handling of the bags which are mounted in or removed from the device at the open -side and lowering or lifting of heavy bags through the topj of the device is avoided.

The invention may be embodied in the form shown in Figures 4 and 5, being applied. to a table or the like 20. In this form a tube 21 is mounted on the table to extend from the front to the back thereof. One element 22 similar to elements 14 and 15 is mounted on the front of the table and the other element 23 is supported on an arm 24 carried by a bar 25 telescoping in tube 21 and being keyed or otherwise arranged therein, as for example, by provision of a key at 26 and lreyway at 27, so as to support arm 24 in adjusted positions." In this form the weight ofthe bar 25, arm 24 and element 23 serves to hold element 23 in its adjusted positions. In this embodiment, the device is also open or unobstructed at one side for insertion and removal of bags at that side.

Obviously the invention is capable of em-v bodiments in many other forms and hence is not limited except by the terms of the appended claims.

What is claimed is 1. A bag h-older comprising a structure including three uprights, a crossbar supported 100 by the uprights, a bag holder element mounted on said cross bar, a longitudinal bar supported by the uprights7 an arm pivotally and slidably mounted on said longitudinal bar, a second bag holder element mounted on said arm for adjustment toward and from said first element, and a ratchet bar paralleling the longitudinal har and having notches in which said arm may engage to support the arm horizontally, said bag holder elements being directed upwardly and outwardly andv curving downwardly and inwardly at their ends.

2. A bag holder comprising a structure including three uprights, a cross bar supported by the uprights, a bag holder element mounted on said cross bar, a longitudinal bar supported by the uprights, an arm pivotally and slidably mounted on said longitudinal bara a ysecond bag holder element mounted on said arm for adjustment toward and 'from said iirst element, and a ratchet bar paralleling the longitudinal bar and having notches in which said arm may engage to support the arm horiv r z-ontally.

3. A bag holder comprising a structure including three uprights, a cross bar supported by the uprights, a bag holder element mounted on said cross bar, a longitudinal bar supported by the uprights, an arm pivotally and slidably mounted on said longitudinal bar, a second bag holder element mounted on said arm for adjustment toward and from said first element, and a supporting bar paralleling the longitudinal bar which said arm may engage to support the arm horizontally7 said bag holder elements being directed upwardly and `outwardly and curving downwardly and inwardly at their ends. .Y

4. A bag holder comprising a structure including three uprights, a cross bar supported by the uprights7 a bag holder element mounted on said cross bar, a longitudinal har supported by the uprights, an arm pivotally and slidably mounted on said .longitudinal bar, a second bag holder element mounted on said arm for adjustment toward and from said first element, and asupporting bar paralleling the longitudinal bar which said arm may engage Yto support the arm horizontally.

5. A bag holder comprising a support, a bag holder element mounted thereon, an arm movably mounted on said support at one side' of said holder element, said arm having second bag holder element thereon extending from one side of the arm vso as to be opposite to the rst holder element, whereby the second holder element is movable toward and from the first holder element and the space between the elements at one side thereof is unobstructed for insertion or removal of a bag therethrough.
