TIONAL LOCK CO., OF ROCKFORD, ILLINOIS,
OF ROCKFOBD, ILLINOIS, ASSIGNOBS TO NA- A CORPORATION OF DELAWARE SHELF PEG '0B BEFRIGERATOR- HOOK application mea January 29,1928. serial No. 248,118.
This invention relates to pe vin general and more particularly to shel pegs of the tye used in refrigerators. v i egs of the type generally v1n use for supporting refrigerator 'shelves have been so constructed that it was necessary to attach them to thev refrigerator lining prior to its assembly in the lrefrigerator cabinet and after such asy d l into threaded engagement with the hole 12 for clamping the head 11 against' the lining Sembly they could not, be tightened if they becameloose. i.
The primaryobjectof thisinvention acordin l toim roveu on e s enera in n d C g y p p P g" g y f Same from working loose and to seal the aperuse andto providefa shelf peg capable Io. being or thelike in which the after assembly of there rigerator.
Another object of this inventignis toprovide a peg of this type which is of considerable strengthfyet issimple of construction and I economical o manufacture and assembly.
Other and further 0b] ects of this invention will be -apparent as vthe same becomes better ication and claims in connection with the accompanying drawings wherein:
Flg". 1 is a fragmentary front elevational view showing `a refrigerator lining having attached thereto a shelf peg embodying this invention, 55'
Fig. 2 is a sectional view taken at the line 2-2 of Fig. 1, 4
Fig. 3 is a perspective peg` with parts omitted, l
ig. 4 1s a fragmentary elevatlonal view taken from the outside of the refrigerator compartment lining, and
Flg. 5 is a fragmentary elevatlonal view taken compartment lining showing a modied form of aperture for the peg provided in the 11nviewv of the shelf teferring to the drawings more particularly, numeral 6 represents the sheet metal lining of the food compartment of a refrigerator.
The lining 6 is provided with a pairfof vertically spaced apertures 7 and 8, respectively, to support va shelf peg 4represented generally byy the number 9.
The peg 9 is preferably made by upsetting used in connection1 with. refrigerators gmaybe tightened from the outside of the refrigeratorone end of a sectionof elongated cylindrical stock to provide a flatflaterally extending integraly head 11. The head 11 is provided with a tapped hole 12 spaced fromthe-shank 13 yof the peg. The inner lend' of the peg is bent to formfth'e hookportion 14.
yThe peg v9 projects through the aperture 7 and a screw 15 extends through the aperture 8 6', a sprngwaSher 16'y preferably being'k used between saidv lining an screw to prevent the .bled in the refrigerator. Should the peg become `.loose the lining. needknot ,-be` disassembled as inthe use vof the ordinary pegs but it may be tightened by merely 'turningthe screw 15 from .inside the refrigerator` comunderstood from an examination o f the specip artment. l w v v 'In Fig. 5 there is shown la modification in which t e lining is provided with a horizontally elongated aperture 17 in lace of the aperture 7 so that the pegs may e renewed entirely after the lining 6 has been assembled, the aperture 17 permitting the passage of the head 11 through the lining from the lnside to the outside thereof. n
We are aware that many details may be varied .throughout a wide ran e without departing from the principles o this invention and we therefore do not wish to be limited the details shown and described. e
1. The combination with a wall of a cabinet, one side of which is normally inaccessible, of a peg adapted to be rigidly secured to and supported by said wall, said wall having a plurality of spaced apertures, said peg adapted to extend through one of said apertures and having a base flange adapted to engage the inaccessible side of said wall to overlie another of said apertures and a securing device iinsertable through said other aperture from the' accessible side of said wall and adapted to engage said base liange for securing the same in place.
2. The combination with a Wall, one side of which is normally inaccessible, of a peg adapted to be rigidly secured to and supported by said wall, said Wall having a plurality of spaced'apertures, said peg adapted to extend through one of said apertures and having a base iange adapted to engage the inaccessible side of said Wall and to overlie another of said apertures, a securing device insertable through said other aperture from the accessible side of said Wall and adapted to engage said base flange for securing the same in place and a sealing plate surrounding said peg and securing device and held in engage-- nient with said Wall by said device.
3. The combination with a Wall having a pair of spaced apertures therein, of a peg comprising a section of elongated stach; having an end thereof upset to provide a. dat lat erally extending integral head, said head.
having a tapped aperture for the rece tion of a threaded securing device and ein adapted to be inserted through one of sai Wall apertures and to engage said Wall adjacent the aperture through which it passes with the tapped aperture overlying the other v of said wall apertures'and a securing device insertable through said other Wall aperture and engageable with the tapped aperture for holdin said head in place. v
4. T e combination with a wall having a pair of spaced apertures therein, of a peg comprising a section of elongated stock having an end thereof upset to provide a Hat laterally extending integral head, said pe being adapted to extend through one of sai apertures on one side of said wall with said head in engagement withthe other side of said wall, said head having a threaded bore in alinement with said other aperture, a sealing plate adapted to engage the side of said wall opposite to said head, said plate havin an aperture snu ly itting the shank of sai peg and a secon aperture in alinement with the other wall aperture and threaded bore and a securing device extending throu h said apertures and engaging said threade bore, said device serving to clamp said parts in assembled relation and also to seal the said second aperture in said sealing plate.
In witness of the foregoing we aiiix our signatures.
