F. T. FRACKER. TOILET BRAKET.

UNITED STATES PATENT OEErofE- FRANCIS T. FRA'CKER, 0F NEW BRITAIN, CONNECTICUT, ASSIGNOR TO P. & F. CORBIN, OF SAME PLACE.

IMPROVEMENT IN TOI LET-BRACKETS.

Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 177,113, dated May 9, 187 6 application filed February 16, 1876.

To al( 'whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, FRANCIS T. FRACKER, of New Britain, in the county of Hartford and State of Connecticut, have invented an Improvement in Toilet-Brackets, of which the following is a specification This bracket is of an ornamental character, and adapted to clothing, brushes, towels, or other-toilet articles that may be hung upon the projecting arms thereof'.

Metal hat-racks and stands have been constructed with both stationaryr and swinging arms, and the stands have been flat and semicircular. l

My invention consists of a plate forming the base of the toilet-bracket, in combination with arms that project therefrom and diverge, the surface of the plate being constructed so that the arms are secured firmly thereto, and the divergence of the arms is obtained by the peculiar character of the plate, without the necessity of arms that are bent or turn to the right and left.

In the drawing, Figure 1 is an elevation of the bracket-plate and divcrging arms, and Fig. 2 is a sectional plan at the line 0c fr.

The plate a is of any desired ornamental The arms b are also of suitable shape, and preferably of varying length, and ornamental.

The surface of the plate a, where the arms are attached, is adapted to receive the diverging hooks-that is to say, the plate at the point of attachment is at right angles'to the plane ofthe diverging arms, so that the arms are not bent or curved, one one way and the other the other, in order that they may diverge; hence the arms are similar at their bases, and assume their divergent Vposition in,

the act of attaching.

The beveled edges c of this plate improve the appearance of said plate, and also provide for the divergence of the arms b, as before mentioned; but thisbeveled edge of the plate may be grooved or concave and accomplish the same object.

The screws i, projecting from the inner ends of the arms, pass through openings in the plate a, and the nuts b secure said arms in place. The cast portion of the arm at the hack is made slightly pyramidal, and the surface of the plate is recessed to correspond, so that the arms cannot turn upon their screws.

It will be apparent that the beveled edges of the bracket are adapted to receiving the arms and causing them to diverge, as shown, regardless of the means employed for securing the arms to the beveled edges of the plate.

I claim as my inventionl. The toilet-bracket made of the plate a, having beveled edges and diverging arms attached upon the beveled portions of said plate, as and for the purposes set forth.

2. Thev toilet-bracket made of diverging arms, having pyramidal surfaces surrounding the attaching-screw and entering corresponding recesses in the surface of the plate, as set forth. A

Signed by me this 24th day of December, A. D. 1875.

FRANCIS T. FRACKER.
