A further object is to provide apparatus of this character which will be formed of a few strong simple and durable parts, which will be inexpensive to-manufacture, and which will not easily get out of order.
With the above and other objects in view the invention consists of certain novel details of construction and combinations of parts hereinafter fully described and claimed, it being understood that various modifications may be resorted to within the scope of the appended claims without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.
In the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specification:
Figure 1 is a fragmentaryiront elevation of a wal1 cabinet, open, and showing a swing bracket constructed in accordance with the invention, in operative position.
Figure 2 is an end elevation of the wall bracket shown in Figure l and showing a conventional can opener carried by the flanges of the bracket.
Figure 3 is a cross sectional view taken on the line 3 -3 of Figure 1 showing the swing bracket in top plan. I
Figure 4 is a detail perspective view of the swing bracket.
Referring now to the drawing. in which like characters of reference designate similar parts inthe various views, the swing bracket comprises a hinge bar l0 adapted to be secured to the inside surface of the casement around the door of a cabinet II, by screws 9, or other connectors. A plate I2 is carried by the bar for swinging'move ment intooperative or inoperative position. The plate is provided with hinge eyes l3 which coact with hinge eyes [4 carried by the bar to receive a hinge pintle I 5, When the plate is in operative position it is located'in the door opening and when the plate is in inoperativeposition it is located within the cabinet. I
The plate is provided with flanges l6 providing dog ears in which a drop bolt I! is slid,'the bolt being interchangeably engageable in either of two sockets l8 formed in the bottom ll! of the cabinet to hold a plate in either of its positions.

A swingable bracket for cabinets comprising a bar adapted to be secured to the inside surface of the easement around the door opening of a 25 cabinet, a plate hinged to the bar for swinging movement to operative position in-said opening or to released position within the cabinet, dog ears on the plate, a drop bolt in said dog ears adapted to engage the cabinet and hold the plate in oper- 30 ative orin released position, and flanges on the plate adapted to receive the base of a can opener.
2. A swingable bracket for cabinets comprising a bar adapted to be secured to the inside surface of the casement around the door opening of a 35 cabinet, a plate'hinged to the bar for swinging movement to operative position in said opening .or to released position within the cabinet, two
sets of dog ears disposed respectively near the upper and lower edges of the plate, a drop bolt 40 interchangeably received in said dog ears for adapting the device to be located at the right or the left hand side of the cabinet, and two sets of flanges disposed respectively near the upper and lower edges of the plate adapted to selectively receive the base of a can opener when the plate is disposed at either the right or the left hand side of the cabinet.
