gluhn Erunaki ATTORNEYS Patented May 9, 1933 UNITED sTATEs JOHIN' BRUNSKI, OF KANSAS CITY, KANSAS sncrronnn rrxruzan Application an October 3, 1932. serial No. 635,897.

This invention relates to a new article of manufacture in the form of a sectional fixture which may be used in any number of places, but that is particularly useful in hanging pictures, supporting curtain tiebacks and in like places where it may be desired to dispense with the use of such a fixture, obliterate any signs of its presence, yet leave suflicient anchorage so that such a fixture might again be brought into use at that location without defacing the wall supporting the same.

One of the primary objects of the instant invention is the contemplation of a household fixture that is made up of a number of novelly formed sections, each having a part for removable association with another, and all formed to combine in producing not only a strong and durable supporting unit, but also an attractive one which may be used with all of the parts in association, or with but two of the units in assembled relation.

Another aim of this invention is to provide a fixture having an embedable member that is formed in a unique manner to preclude rotation about its longitudinal axis when the same is driven to position.

Specific structural features of a sectional fixture embodying this invention will be made clear during the course of the following specification, referring the accompanying drawing, wherein: Figure 1 is a side elevation of a fixtur made in accordance with the present invention, showing the same in place and used as a picture hanger.

Fig. 2 is a similar .view with all parts removed and the embedable body in place but concealed by wall covering.

Fig. 3 is an exploded sectional View showing the parts of a complete sectional fixture.

Fig. 4 is a view similar to Fig. 1, illustrating the fixture assembled as a curtain tieback member.

Fig. 5 is a top end elevation of the fixture head.

Fig. 6 is a sectional view VIVI of Fig. 3.

Fig. 7 is a side elevation of one member 0 of the fixture constructed in accordance with a modified form of the invention, and,

Fig. 8 is a sectional view of the member 'shown in Fig. 7 taken on line VIII-VIII thereof.

Like reference numerals indicate similar parts throughout the several views, and reference character 12 designates a wall or any other structure wherein it is desirable to embed a portion of the fixture. to

As clearly shown in Fig. 3, the fixture comprises a number of telescoping or interassociated parts, one of which is an elongated, tapered pin 14 having an internally screw threaded socket 16 formed in one end "05 thereof to receive an intermediate member in the form of neck 18. Pin 14 ispointed at the end opposite to the end forming socket 16, and in one embodiment of the invention H pin 14 is polygonal in cross section, as shown in Fig. 6. Such formation precludes rotation of pin 14 on its longitudinal axis or center after the same has been embedded or driven to place, as shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 4. Pin 14'should be embedded'in wall 12 to a point where the socket forming end thereof is flush with the surface of said wall 12 so that when it is desired to eliminate the use of a fixture at that particular point, the removable portions of the fixture may be taken from pin 14 and a suitable wall covering 20, in the form of paper 'or canvas, may be stretched over the surface of wall 12 without regard to pin 14. f

After decorating, however, it is oftentimes'necessary to replace a fixture at-that particular point, and if such is needed, it is but necessary to-pierce wall covering .20 and again, move member 18 to place. Intermediate member 18 has a screw threaded be takenon line hereinbefore mentioned.

shank 22 adapted for engagement with the internal threads of socket 16. An enlarged portion 24 is screw threaded as at 26 to receive head 28 and an annular groove 30 extends around member 18 to receive picture cord 32 or any other cable or hanger that is used. Enlarged portion 24 is of a diameter sufficient to preclude cord 32 from accidentally leaving groove 30.

It is oftentimes necessary to create a larger head on the fixture head on the fixture and also to lend thereto a-more orv lessor-namental appearance To do this," head 28 is brought into play, that may be formed in suitable fashion to present a top surface that is ornamented as at'34. A-n an nular flange 36, is a part of head 28, andforms a retaining rim entirely therearound a's'shown i in Figs. 3 and 4. This flange ispreferably polygonal, as illustrated in Fig. 5, but may be of any suitable contour; Aninternally threaded cavity 38 houses a part of member -18 and is removably associatedl therewith through the medium of the screw threads formed upon enlarged portion 24 and within cavity 38. V i

Figs. 7 .and S illustrate the embedable member made in accordance with a modified form of the invention. In this instance, pin is turned at right angles and laterally extending ears 52 are struck therefrom or cast thereon to preclude turning of pin 50 as Pin 50 is tapered and the edge of ears 52 nearest the pointed end thereof is sharpened'to present a cutting edge 54; which permits driving pin 50 to place without difiiculty. A socket 56. is

formed in the larger end of pin 50 and serves to receive such members as have heretofore been described. v.

Obviously, specific structure plays. an important part in the production of a fixture embodying the'concepts of this invention, but it is understood that changes and modifications as to form, materials andsizes may be enjoyed without departing fromgthe spirit of the invention or scope. of the appended claims.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new and desired to be secured by Letters Patent is:

l. A sectional fixture comprising an embedable, elongated body; a memberremovably carried by said body; and a head, housing a portion of said member and removably associated therewith. I i

, 2. A sectional fixture comprising a tapered embedable, elongated body having an internally threaded socket formed in one end thereof; a member carried by said body having a threaded shank within saidthreaded socket; and a head housing a portion of said member and removably associated therewith.

3. A sectional fixture comprising an embedable, pointed, elongated body; head forming units removably associated with said body; and means formed by said body to preclude rotation about its longitudinal axis when the same is embedded, said means constituting laterally extending ears having a cutting edge formed on the side thereof nearest the point of said body.

4. A sectional fixture comprising an elongated, tapered, body, having a point formed at one end and an internally screw threaded socket formed .in the opposite end thereof; a'. member removably carried by said body, having, a screw threaded shank within said socket; and means formed by said body to preclude rotation thereof when the same is embedded.

5; A" sectional fixture comprising an elongated, tapered. body, having a point formed at one end and an internally threaded socket formed in the opposite end thereof; a'member removably carried by'said body by engagementwith said socket; and a socketed head circumscribing a portion of 'said:mem-

.ber, saidm'ember having an annular flange formed thereon to create aretaining rim.

' 6. A sectional fixture comprising an elongated, tapered, embedable body, having. a point formed at one end and an internally threaded socket formed in the opposite end vthereof; means formed by said body to preclude rotation about its longitudinal axis whenthe same is embedded; an intermediate member removably associated with said body including ascrew threaded shank en'- gageable by said socket screw threads, an annular groove formed in saidintermediate member, and a screw threaded portion on the projected end of said member; and a socketed head removably carried by said intermediate member, said head housing .a

portion of the member within the socket and V JOHN RUNsKI.
