UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE GARBAGE CAN STAND Casimer Kilian, Dunkirk, N. Y. Application June 9, 1950, Serial No. 167,075
This invention relates to holders for retaining garbage cans and other exposed receptacles outdoors, and more particularly to an improved stand for supporting a garbage can or similar receptacle in upright position and off the ground.
A main object of the invention is to provide a novel and improved stand for a garbage can or similar receptacle, said stand being very simple in construction, being easy to mount in the ground, and providing a means of supporting the garbage can or similar receptacle out of contact with the ground and in a secure upright position, whereby the contents of the receptacle will not be accidentally spilled by winds or by animals and whereby rusting of the bottom of V the receptacle is prevented.
A further object of the invention is to provide an improved supporting stand for a garbage can or similar receptacle, said stand being very inexpensive to manufacture, being rugged in construction, being simple to install, and enabling the garbage can or other receptacle to be readily removed for emptying thereof.
Further objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent from the following description and claims, and from the accompanying drawings, wherein:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of an improved garbage can stand constructed in accordance with the present invention, showing the ground engaging stop pads employed with the legs of the stand.
Figure 2 is a side elevational view showing the stand of Figure I mounted in the ground and supporting a garbage can therein.
Figure 3 is an enlarged detail view in vertical cross section showing the connection of the top circular ring to one of the legs of the stand, showing the connection of the lower ring to the lower portion of said leg, and showing the triangular stop lug on the leg cooperating with the ground engaging support pad to limit penetration of the leg into the ground.
Figure 4 is a perspective view of the garbage can supporting stand of Figure 1 but showing the ground engaging legs bent outwardly.
Referring to the drawings, the stand is generally designated at I I and comprises four equally spaced upstanding legs I2 made of metal rods and pointed at their lower ends as shown at I3. Welded to the upper end portions of the legs I2 is a circular metal ring I 4 and welded to the intermediate portions of said legs is a second metal ring I5, slightly smaller in diameter than the top ring I 4. The legs I2 therefore converge downwardly, as shown in Figure 1. Secured to the lower ring I 5 at right angles to each other are the respective depending U-shaped cross bars I6, I6 which define a supporting receptacle for holding a garbage can positioned as shown in Figure 2. The garbage can is designated at IT, and as shown in Figure 2 the intermediate portions of the U-shaped cross bars I6, I6 are slightly bowed upwardly at their middle portions, whereby the garbage can I1 is supported substantially at the center of its base allowing free passage of air around substantially the entire area of its bottom surface. Secured to the lower portions of the legs I2, as by welding or the like, are inwardly directed triangular lugs I8, and designated at I9 are apertured metal pads which may be positioned on the lower portions of the legs I2 in the manner shown in Figure 2 and which are engaged by the lugs I8 to limit downward penetration of the legs I2 into the ground.
As shown in Figure 2, the stand II may be mounted in position by driving the pointed ends I3 of the legs I2 into the ground with the pads I9 engaged on the legs, the stand being properly 7 positioned when the lugs I8 engage the pads I9,
as shown. Alternatively, the lower portions of the legs I2 may be bent slightly outwardly, as shown in Figure 4, at 20, whereby the lower portions of said legs diverge downwardly instead of being convergent downwardly as in Figure 2. The pads I9 are employed with the legs I2 of Figure 4 in the same manner as in Figure 2.
It will be apparent that when the stand is mounted in the ground, a garbage can, such as the can I! of Figure 2, will be supported with its bottom portion out of contact with the ground and will be held against tipping or upsetting by the engagement of the upper ring I4 with the upper portion of the can body. It will also be apparent that the can may be readily removed from the support by merely lifting the can upwardly out of the support. By the use of the improved support the garbage can is protected against spilling by winds and against upsetting by animals, and the bottom of the garbage can is protected against contact with the ground, whereby the life of the can is greatly increased.
The connections of the various elements of the stand to each other are preferably made by welding, and the various rod elements and ring elements are preferably made of galvanized rod stock or of other suitable corrosion resistant metal.
While certain specific embodiments of an im-' proved garbage can support have been disclosed in the foregoing description, it will be understood that various modifications within the spirit of the invention may occur to those skilled in the art. Therefore, it is intended that no limitations be placed on the invention except as defined by the scope of the appended claims.
What is claimed is:
1. A support for an outdoor receptacle comprising a horizontally disposed ring, a plurality of upstanding legs arranged exteriorly of and in spaced relation about said ring and each having the upper end secured to the adjacent portion of said ring, the lower end of each of said legs being provided with a point for penetration into a ground surface, a second horizontally disposed ring disposed interiorly of said legs intermediate the upper and lower ends of the latter and fixedly secured to the adjacent portion of said legs, a pair of bar elements arranged in crisscross relation positioned intermediate said legs and below said second ring and having their ends dependingly secured to said second ring, a fixed lug projecting from each leg intermediate the pointed lowerendand said second ring, said lugs being horizontally aligned, and apertiu'ed stop plates slidably engagedon the portions of said legs below said lugs and being engageable with said lugs for limiting penetration of the pointed ends of the'legs into the ground.
2, A support for an outdoor receptacle comprising .a horizontally disposed ring, a plurality of upstanding legsarranged exteriorly of and in spaced relation about said ring and each having the upper end secured to the adjacent portion of said ring, the lower end of each of said legs being provided with a point for penetration into a ground surface, a second horizontally disposed ring disposed interiorly of said legs intermediate the upper and lower ends of the latter and fixedly secured to the adjacent portions of said legs, a pair of U-shaped bars arranged in crisscross relation positioned intermediate said legs and below said ring and having their ends secured to said second ring, a fixed triangular shaped lug projecting from each leg intermediate the pointed lower end and said piston ring, said lugs being horizontally aligned, and apertured stop plates slidably engaged on the portions of said legs below said lugs and being engageable with said lugs for limiting penetration of the pointed ends of the lugs into the ground.
