and be neat and pleasing in appearance,-
wherein the golf clubs may be automatically aligned relatively to each other, and the parts locked together againstaccidental displacement by a simple and easily manipulat ed device. p e
To these, and other ends, my invention consists in the display stand, having certain details of construction and combinations of parts, as will be hereinafter described and 2 more particularly set forth'in the claims.
Referring to the drawings, in which like characters of reference indicate like parts in the several figures: I
Figure l is an elevation of my improved display stand; v
Figure 2 is a plan View thereof; Figure 3 is an enlarged fragmentary view of the upper portion thereof; and 7 Figure 1 is an enlarged plan view of the base portion. In the accompanying drawing: 10 is the base member, which may be of any preferred construction, and secured therein is a stand ard 11, preferably made of tubing, having a plug 12 in its upper end with an upwardly projecting center piece 13.
Telescopically fitted over the standard 11 is the shell 14, which is shorter in length than the standard 11 with acollar 16 at its lower end, and provided at its upper end with a disk 15 having a recess therein to receive the center piece 13 whereby the shell may be conveniently supported by the standard 11 and readily rotatable relatively thereto.
. The recess in the disk 15 may be omitted if desired,-in which case the disk will rest upon the center piece 13. V a
The shell is held against. accidental disengagement from the standard 11 by a locking device, which consists of a bolt having a by Letters Patent, is:
1929. Serial No. 357,205;
shank portion 17, a button 18 at one end and an upwardlyand inwardly turned head portion19. r f
This boltis associated with the standard by projecting the shankportion diametrically therethrough with the headportion 19 in such relative position that when in its in po-' sition, as shown in Figure 1,'it projects .over the collar 16 and thus prevents the shell 14 from being lifted therefrom. When moved to its out position, indicated'by broken lines in Figure 1, by pressure upon the button, the head portion 19 is moved outside of the collar 16 and the parts can be readily separated;
Secured to the shell 14- are a'plurality of plates 21, to two of which are secured the disksQO, each of which is provided with a plurality of radial notches 22, the notches in one disk being in the same vertical plane as 7 those of the other disk.
Fixed tothe lowestof the plates 2l is a polygonal table 23, as shown herein having nine sides, the number of the sidescorrespending with the number of notches in the disks 20and the vertices' of the polygon being in the same vertical plane as the notches 22. on the top side of the table 23 and adjacent to the edge thereof, is 'a'rii'n 24." With this type of display stand a golf club is readily supported by projectingthe handle into the notches'of two of the disks, substantially as shown in Figure 1,'and with the head of the club resting on the top of the table 23 and held against lateral movement by the rim 24 at the vertices of the triangle, thus forming a convenient aligning device and prevents relative movement of theclub while in the stands What I claim "as new and desire to secure 1. Ina device of the character described; a stationary member; a movable member ass'ociated therewith; and means for preventing accidental disengagement of the latter from theformer, comprising a sliding bolt in thestationary member,which in one of its'positions is projected into the path of a part connected with the movable member'and thereby prevents relative vertical movement there-' of in either direction. I
2. In a device of the character described; a stationary member; a movable member associated therewith and shorter than the stationary member with a laterally projecting portion at its lower end; means for preventing accidental disengagement of the latter from the former comprising a bolt in the stationary member having an inwardly turned head portion which in one of its positions is projected over said laterally projecting portion and thereby prevents axial movement thereof.
3. In a device of the character described; a stationary member; a movable member associated therewith and shorter than the stationary member and provided with a collar at its lower end; means for preventing accidental disengagement of the latter from the former, comprising a bolt mounted in the stationary'member below the movable member and having an inwardly turned portion that projects over the collar and thereby prevents relative end rise movement of the movable member.
4. A display rack including a plurality of spaced members, a marginal rim having a plurality of vertices carried by one of the members, another of the members having peripheral notches, each of the notches being in the same vertical plane as one of the vertices, whereby the shaft of an article whose head is positioned in a vertex of the rim may be engaged in the re istering notch of the other member.
5. A display rack including a table, a rim of polygonal contour secured thereto, a standard extending vertically upward from the center of the table, and a disk carried by the standard concentrically with the table and having peripheral notches, each notch in the disk being'in the same vertical plane as a vertex of the IlHl, whereby the shaftof an article whose head is positioned in a vertex of the rim may be engaged in the correspond- I mg notch of the dlsk.
6. A display rack including a polygonal table having a plane upper surface and a peripheral rim, a standard extending vertically upward from the center of the table, and a disk carried by the standard concentrically with the table and having-peripheral notches, each notch in the disk being in the same vertical plane as a vertex of the table, whereby the shaft of article whose head is positioned in a vertex of the table may be engaged in thecorresponding notch of the disk.
7 A display rack, including a base member; a vertical standard secured thereto; a shell revolvably mounted on the standard, having an outwardly projecting collar adjacent to the lower end thereof; spaced article carrying members supported by the shoulder; and a locking device for securing the standard and shell against relative axial movement in either direction, comprising a jacent to the lower end thereof; spaced article carrying members supported by the shoulder; and a locking device for securing the standard and shell against relative axial movement in either direction, comprising a bolt having a substantially straight shank portion slidable diametrically through the standard, and an inwardly turned head portion spaced from the shank portion and substantially parallel therewith a distance greater than the width of the collar, the position of thebolt in its locking position'being such that the-shank portion is upon one side of the collar and the head portion upon the opposite side thereof.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto affixed 'my signature.
