SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 310,101, dated December 30, w
Application filed April 23, 1884.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JOHN GEORGE WAGNER, of Cooperstown, in the county of Venango and State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Bagflolders, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the annexed drawings, forming part of this specification.
This invention relates to bag-holders in which a single standard is employed for supporting the device; and the invention consists of the construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter described and claimed.
1n the drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation of my bag-holder. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the same, showing an attachment; and Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the attachment.
A Bindicate two iron bars secured together crosswise, and G is a standard consisting of a threaded rod screwed into the cross-bars at their common center. The bar A is slightly turned up at D, and is provided with a slot,
E, near its opposite end.
F indicates a base-board having two staples, G H, in one of which the turnedaip or hooked end D of bar A is inserted, while the other staple is received by the slot E, and is engaged by a hook or catch, I, connected to the upper surface of bar A. The cross-barsA B are thus removably attached to the base-board; or they may be attached to the floor of a building in like manner, if desired.
J indicates an arm having a sleeve or opening, j, for receiving the rod 0, and a set-screw,
j, for adjustably securing the arm to the rod at any desired elevation thereon, Attached to this arm is a band, K, made of any suitable elastic material, and adapted to be held in a horizontal position by the arm. The band is a cut band, and is so set that the two ends will overlap each other about onefourth the circumference of the band. The two ends are (No model.)
connected together by a loop, 7c, attached to one of them, and a set-screw or cam, is, supported in the loop and adapted to bear against the other end. The diameter of the band is normally less than that of the mouth of a bag, so that the band may be readilyinserted therein, and then be expanded and held against the same; Releasing the set-screw or cam that holds the band will allow the band to contract, so that it may be readily removed from the mouth of the bag.
L indicates an attachment for the band K, consisting of a curved plate having loops or hooks M, by which it is to be engaged and held on the band on the outer side of the latter.
The object of the attachment is to increase the diameter of the band, or rather to extend its peripheral surface, to adapt it for use in case of an unusually large bag. This attachment may be quickly placed on or taken off the band without disarranging the same or requiring any special adjustment thereof.
\Vhat I claim is' 1. In a bag-holder, the combination, with a base-board having staples therein, of the standard having means for engaging the mouth of a bag, and having a base consisting of two cross bars having hooks or catches thereon adapted to be engaged by said staples, substantially as shown and described.
2. The combination of the base-board, the standard, the out band adjustably connected to the standard, the cam for holding said band to the mouth of a bag, and the attachment for the band, adapted to be placed on or taken off the same Without disarranging the band or requiring any adjustment thereof, substantially as specified.
