Inventor Patented Oct. 31, 1933 CLOTHESLINE SUPPORT Lewis H. Werner, White Plains, N. Y.

Application December 29, 1932 Serial No. 649,408

1 Claim.

This invention relates to a clothes line support, the general object of the invention being to provide a simple device for holding the upper and lower reaches of a clothes line looped over a pair 5 of pulleys, in parallel, and to prevent sagging of that part of the line on which the clothes are placed.

This invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts to be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing and specifically pointed out in the appended claim.

In describing the invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawing wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which:-

Figure 1 is an elevation showing the device in use.

Fig. 2 is an edge view with parts broken away.

Fig. 3 is a front view of the device. As shown in these views, the device comprises an elongated block 1 having a pair of recesses 2 5 therein for receiving the pulleys 3 and a strip 4 which is rotatably connected to the block by a screw 5 which passes through the middle portion of the strip into the central part of the block.

Thus the strip 4 can be turned at an angle to the block so as to expose the pulleys, whereby the two parts of the line 6 can be placed in engagement with the pulleys, as shown in Fig. 1 after which the strip is turned into alinement with the block, as shown in Fig. 3, so as to hold the line in contact with the pulleys.

As shown in Fig. 2, the pulleys are placed closer to one end of the recesses than the other end so as to leave a space for the two parts of the line and the shafts 7 for the pulleys are carried by the block.

It is thought from the foregoing-description that the advantages and novel features of the invention will be readily apparent.

' It is to be understood that changes may be made in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claim.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new is:--

the pulley.
