RADIATOR FOOT REST Filed July 19, 1929 Patented Apr 7, 1 931 BLOOMEIELD n.
.T'E'ES RADIATOR ZEOOTBEST Application filed. July 19,
' therefore there will be the least practical amount of heat conducted from the coils to the supporting bar upon which the feet rest.
Another object of my invention is to provide a foot rest of this character in which the single piece of wire or rod bent at its ends to form loops and spaced from the foot supporting bar, said loops being of elongated form so that it can be attached to a raidator of width less than the length of the 2 foot-supporting bar, and to make provision whereby the foot rest can be attached to a radiator in which the coils are of different dimensions.
A. further. object provide a foot rest of is neat in appearance, tion and which can be readily applied to and removed from any radiator and have certain details of structure and combination of parts hereinafter more fully set forth. v
A still further object of my invention is to provide a radiator foot rest that may be applied to radiators of, varying that also may be used as a towel rack.
In the accompanying drawings Figure 1 is a perspective view of my improved foot rest applied to a radiator.
Figure 2 is a top plane view of my inr proved foot rest showing the radiator in dotted lines. I
Figure 3 is a vertical transverse sectional view taken on the line 3-3-of,Figure 2 looking in the direction of the arrow.
Referring now to the drawings, 1 represents the foot supporting bar of my improved foot rest and is made of a heavy steel rod or bar, preferably round, but it'could'be of angular form if desired. The ends of the bar whichare' bent around or looped as in-' dicated at 2 and 3 and extended inwardly of my invention is to this character whlch simple 1n construclengths and 7 1929. Serial No. 379,493.
form the two horizontal uaatss Fries HOWARD, or wnsnmeron, nisrnrcr or COLUMBIA portions 4 and 5 extending parallel with the foot supporting bar 1 and arran ed b v plane as clearly shown 1 downwardly as indicated n Figure 3 at 6 and 7 and extend outwardly as indicated at 8 and 9 parallel with the end dire tions and 5 8 and 9 are turned upw below the por ctly ardly as indicated in the same horizontal of the drawings. The portions 4 and 5 are looped and the ends or the portions at 10and 11 directly below the portions t I and 5.
By the above descripti 1 with a loop at on, it will be seen i that I have formed the foot supporting bar each end forming means whereby the foot rest may be attached to the radiator. The attaching the plates 12 and 13 whichare of means comprising width less than the space 14: between the coils 15 of the radiator, whereby tween the coils and turn position shown in Figur drawings.
These'plates 12 and they may be inserted beed in fillOllZOIltELly es 2 and 3 of. the

The outward ends as indicated at 21 and pas formed in the ends of the foot rest.
20 are the washers 22 ranged en'thebolts which engage the paralle of the loops and by s through the loops 1 portions 4 and 8 23 the foot rest is firmly clamped to the coils of the radiator.
The loops as shown are of an elongated form whereby the same can be attached to radiators of greater or less width and also provide meanswhereby the foot rest 1 can be attached to radiators in which are of varying dimensions.
From the foregoing de seen that I have provided struction in which a foot rest is rod forming foot supconsiderable distance of the radiator.
single piece of wire or porting bar spaces a from the coils provided a small contacti the coils scription it will be a very simple conmade from a I have also ng surface between 13 have their I of the bolts are threaded 3 means of the thumbnut the loops and the coils of the radiator whereby the smallest amount of heat would'be conducted through the looped ends 2 and 3 to the supporting bar.
5 l/Vhile I have shown and described this specific form of loop it will be readily understood that the same can be varied as the broad invention in this application isthe forming of a foot rest from a single bar or rod and.
forming means whereby attaching bolts or clips can cooperate therewith to securely fasten the foot rest to the radiator.
From the foregoingdescription it will be seen that I have described this invention as 1 a foot rest, but it will be understood that the same can be used as a rack forhanging towels or clothing, whereby the same may be dried by the heat from the radiator.
Having thus fully described my invention,
what I claim is 1. A radiator foot rest comprising a body portion composed of a single rod having an elongated foot supporting portion and having two ends bent around and formed into elongated closed loops parallel with the foot sup porting portion and spaced therefrom and through which the attaching bolts are adapted to'pass.
2. A radiator foot rest comprising a body 80 portion composed of single rod having a straight foot supporting portion and having its ends bent around forming two loops spaced from the foot supporting portion, attaching bolts passing between the coils of the radiator, plates removably carried by the inner ends of the bolts and held against rotation thereon, and adapted toengage the inner vertical walls of the coils, said bolts passing through the loops, plates carried by the bolts 4 and engaging the outer faces of the loops and nuts on said bolts for engaging the plates for clamping the loops against the outer vertical walls of the coils.
3. A radiator foot rest comprising a metal rod forming the body portion thereof and having its ends bent around parallel with the body portion and spaced therefrom and formed into vertically disposed loops through which the attaching bolts pass. 1 In testimony whereof, I have signed this specification.
