Application filed December 7, 1927. Serial No. 238,804.
Fig. 2 is an enlarged detail vertical scctional view centrally through one of my supports in position supporting a glass partition on the bin bottom.
Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view of one of my attaching devices and its cooperating channel disassembled lation.
Fig. 4 is a detail perspective'view of the to a glass cross wall.
F1g. 5 1s a detail perspectiveview of a coupling means for cross-partltion walls.
Fig. 6 is a sectional view similar to Fig. i
2 with a card holder -fasteiied to my attachmg device, a screw for fastening being shown by dotted lines;
The parts will be identified by their 1111- merals of reference which are the same in all views. I i
1 is the counter. having a bottom 3, end walls 4 and side walls 5. 6 are longitudinalchannels .near each side in the bottom of the bin. 7 are transverse glass partition strips. 8 is the detachable fprked support for the strip -7 provided with a downwardly projecting shank 9 terminating in an enlarged transverse head 91.
The channels (5 are metal lined with .an enlarged bottom 62 and restricted. sides 63, see Fig. 2. The forked support 8 is retained by inserting the shank 9'with its transverse head/91 into the slot and turning it cross- The inv and in separated re-- coupling means for the end of a partition 2' is the counter bin tion. The sides -of the'fork 8 are fiat metal.
The partitions, strips of glass ,arethen put in place in said forks. Additional glass cross strips 10 are supported at any point along the partition trips 7 by end supports 11, U-shaped to receive the same,'and having lateral extensions 111 and upwardly pro.- jecting fingers 112 to engage under and back of the partition strip 7'. To provide a friction on the partitionstrip the supports 11 are perforated,at.1l3 and struck in to form the spring finger 114. Where it is desired to make a continuous cross partition, a double retainer is provided as seen in Fig. 5 where'instead of the finger 112 an additional supporting U loop 115 is put in, in extension of the main part 11.
Where it is desirable to support a price card or the like, I mount a holder 12 having a flange 121-for fastening the depending .shank Sthereto. For further fastening and also to prevent a twisting of the card holder,
I provide a screw 122 shown by dotted lines in Fig. 6.
It is clear that the structure is capable of considerable modification without departing from my invention.
.I. desire to claim the invention in its specific form and also broadly as pointed out in the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention what IcIaim as new and desire to secure by- Let ters Patent is:
1. The combination with a counter display bin, of a metal reinforced channel in the bottom of said bin having longitudinal slots therein, broadest at the bottom, forked supports, the sides of which are of thin blades, said supports having depending shanks and crossheads detachably and adjustably inserted in said slots of saidchan- 'nel, and partitions detachably supportedby 1101 with a longitudinal restricted groove; and bifurcated supports with eressheads adjustable by inserting and turning in said groove to support said partitions, as speci- In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
