N. 'B. PIERSALL ATTACHMENT FOR FAUCETS INVENTOR WITNESSES fl lzpaleon, B.Hensal$ ATTORNEYS Patented May 1, 1934 PATENT OFFICE ATTACHMENT FOR FAUCETS Napoleon B. Piersall, Newark, N. J.

Application August 23,

Claims.

An object of the invention is to provide an attachment for faucets which is light in weight and inexpensive to manufacture and which serves as a means to support articles adjacent a faucet.

Another object of the invention is to provide a supporting means having two wire terminals, one of the wire terminals having a portion bent to form a guideway in which the other wire terminal is disposed, means being provided to press the wire terminals in the direction of each other to embrace a faucet.

A further object of the invention is to provide two supporting means, each with two wire terminals, one of the wire terminals of each supporting means having a guideway in which the other wire terminal is disposed, so that, with two faucets, a supporting means may be mounted on each faucet, there being means provided to hold the wire terminals of the supporting means relatively to each other between the faucets.

Still another object of the invention is to provide a supporting means having two wire terminals for resting on a faucet, one of the terminals having a portion bent to form a guideway in which the other terminal is disposed, and means being provided to press the terminals in the direction of each other to embrace another faucet.

Additional objects of the invention will appear in the following specification in which the pre- 'ferred form of the invention is described.

In the drawing similar reference characters refer to similar parts in all the views, of which Figure 1 is a front elevation showing the invention, portions of the faucets being illustrated in section,

Figure 2 is a perspective fragmentary view illustrating the invention, and

Figure 3 is a view illustrating a modified form of the invention.

By referring to Figures 1 and 2 of the drawing it will be seen that there are two supporting members 5, each constructed of a wire member 6 having a ring portion 7 from which depend wire members 8 which have at their lower ends horizontal portions 9 forming a bottom for a receptacle in which a glass or similar article may be received. The terminals 10 and 11 of each of the wire members 6 are held together by a wire 12 which serves to hold the ring portion 7 in position.

As will be seen by referring to the drawing, the terminal 10 has a portion bent at 13 to form a guideway in which the terminal 11 is disposed. It will also be seen that the terminal 11 beyond the bent portion 13 of the terminal 10 is bent at 1932, Serial No. 630,139

14 to form a ring or aperture for receiving the terminal 11 on the other supporting member 5.

As will best be seen by referring to Figure 1, a portion of a faucet is gripped between the portions 10 and 11 of the terminals 10 and 11 of the supporting member 5 with the terminal 11 of the supporting member extending through the ring or aperture 14 on the terminal 11 of the other supporting member and with the said terminal 11 of the other supporting member disposed through the ring or aperture 14 of the terminal 11. With this construction, it will be understood that each of the supporting members will be secured to one of the faucets and that the terminals 11 of the supporting members will be held relatively to each other by the insertion of the terminals 11 in the rings or apertures 14 of the companion terminals 11 respectively. As a means for pressing the portions 10' and 11 of the terminals 10 and 11 in the direction of each other, a wire member 15 is provided which has loop portions 16 mounted on the terminals 10 and 11, so that, when the wire member 15 is moved in the direction of the portion 13 bent to form a guideway, it will serve to press the terminal 10 in the direction of the terminal 11, thereby embracing a portion of the faucet.

In the modified form of the invention illustrated in Figure 3 of the drawing, a wire 6 is bent to form a ring '7 from which depend the wire members 8 having horizontal portions 9 which form a bottom for a receptacle formed by the ring "I" and the depending wire members 8.

Terminals 1'7 and 18 of the wire 6 are held together at the ring '7 by means of a wire 19 D The terminal 18 is disposed in a guideway 19 formed by bending a portion 20 of the terminal 1'7, as shown in Figure 3, so that, when the portions 21 of the terminals 17 and 18 are disposed on a faucet member 22, the terminals 17 and 18 beyond the guideway 19 will be in position for embracing a portion 23 of another faucet. As a means of pressing the terminals 17 and 18 in the direction of each other at the faucet 23, a wirev member 24 is provided which has loops 25 disposed around the terminals 17 and 18 so that, when the wire member 24 is moved in the direction of the guideway 19, it will serve to move the terminals 17 and 18 in the direction of each other to embrace the said other faucet.

What is claimed is:

1. In an attachment for faucets, two holders, each with two ends for embracing a faucet, one of the ends of each holder having an aperture for receiving the said end of the other holder.

2. In an attachment for faucets, two holders, each with two ends for embracing a faucet, one of the ends of each holder having means for securing the said end of the other holder.

3. In an attachment for faucets, two holders, each with two ends for embracing a faucet, one of the ends of each holder having a portion bent to form a guideway for its companion end, one of the ends of each holder having means for securing the said end of the other holder.

4. In an attachment for faucets, two holders, each with two ends for embracing a faucet, one
