' 1N VEN TOR.

ITTOENEY United States Patent 3,285,482 MULTI-PURPOSE HIP HOOK James David Bedsaul, Sn, Oldsmar, Fla, assignor of onehalf to Walter B. Poif, Tampa, Fla. Filed May 17, 1965, Ser. No. 456,368 3 Claims. (Cl. 224 2s) This invention relates to supports and particularly supports for suspending objects, such as a paint bucket, clothes pin holder, or the like, from the body of an individual and particularly from a belt extended around the waist of a painter, carpenter, or other workman.

The purpose of this invention is to provide a support including a belt with one hook for supporting a hanger from a belt, and another hook for suspending a paint bucket or holder from the support.

Various types of support have been provided for attaching buckets or other utensils to the belt of a workman or other layman and although hangers of this type are generally satisfactory it is difficult to arrange the elements so that paint will not spill from a bucket, can, or the like, when the workman bends over or climbs a ladder.

With this thought in mind this invention contemplates the use of a horizontally disposed arcuate bar with one hook extended upwardly from the bar and positioned to extend over a belt with the hook in an inverted position and another hook dependening from said bar and arranged in an upright position for receiving a bail or handle of a paint bucket, or the like.

The object of this invention is, therefore, to provide a support for retaining objects, and particularly paint buckets, and the like, in operative position on the body of a workman.

Another object of the invention is to provide a support for a paint bucket, or the like, in which the support may be attached to a belt extended around the waist of a workman without screws, bolts, or other fastening means.

Another important object of the invention is to provide a holder for supporting utensils, and the like, from the belt of a workman in which the device is placed upon the belt by one hand.

A further object of the invention is to provide a support for retaining a paint bucket suspended from a belt around the waist of a workman in which the support is held in an operative position by gravity.

A still further object is to provide a multi-purpose hip hook for suspending objects from the waist of a Workman in which the hook is of simple and economical construction.

Other and further objects and advantages of the present invention will be apparent from the following detailed description, drawing and claims, the scope of the invention not being limited to the illustration of the drawing as the drawing is only for the purpose of illustrating a method by which the principles of this invention can be applied.

Other embodiments of the invention utilizing the same or equivalent principles may be used and structural changes may be made as desired by those skilled in the art without departing from the present invention and the purview of the appended claims.

Other features and advantages of the present invention will be apparent from the following description taken in connection with the drawing, wherein the drawing illustrates a support for hanging a paint bucket, clothes pin apron, or the like, from a belt of a workman.

Patented Nov. 15, 1966 "ice While one embodiment of the invention is illustrated in the above-referred-to drawing, it is to be understood that it is merely for the purposes of illustration and that various changes in construction may be resorted to in the course of manufacture in order that the invention may be utilized to the best advantage according to circumstances which may arise, without in any manner departing from the spirit and intention of the device, which is to be -limited only in accordancewith the appended claims.

And while there is stated the primary field of utility of the invention it remains obvious that it may be employed in any other capacity wherein it may be found applicable.

In the accompanying drawing, and in the following specification, the same reference characters are used to designate the same parts and elements throughout and in which the numeral 10 refers to an arcuate bar, numeral 11 indicating a hook extended upwardly from the bar 10 and connected thereto by a vertical shank 12, and a hook 13 depending from the bar 10 and secured thereto by a horizontally disposed bar 14.

The hook 11, which extends from the upper end of the shank 12, extends outwardly to facilitate installing the hook on a belt 15, and the point 16 of the hook is connected to the upper end of the shank 12 by a bar 17.

The outer end of the hook 13 is connected by a short bar 18 to the lower end of the base 19 of the hook 13, the base 19 being connected to the bar 10 by the horizontally disposed bar 14.

The hook 11, which extends from the upper end of the shank 12, extends outwardly to facilitate installing the hook on a belt 15, and the point 16 of the hook is connected to the upper end of the shank 12 by a bar 17.

The outer end of the hook 13 .is connected by a short bar 18 to the lower end of the base 19 of the hook 13, the base 19 being connected to the bar 10 by the horizontally disposed bar 14.

The outer ends 20 and 21 of the bar 10 are curved outwardly to obviate wearing holes in the garment 22.

In use the hook 11 is inserted upwardly behind the belt 15 and turned through an angle of degrees to the position shown in the drawing wherein the outer portion or point 16 of the hook is positioned on the outside of the belt. In this position the bar 10 rests against the outer surface of a garment of a Workman and with the points or ends curved outwardly there is very little possibility of openings being worn in the material of the garment.

From the foregoing description, it is thought to be obvious that a support constructed in accordance with this invention is particularly well adapted for use, by reason of the convenience and facility with which it may be assembled and used, and it will also be obvious that the invention is susceptible of some change and modification without departing from the principles and spirit thereof, and for this reason it is not desired to be limited to the precise arrangement and formation of the several parts herein shown in carrying out the invention in practice, except as claimed.

What is claimed is:

1. In a support, the combination which comprises an arcuate horizontally disposed bar having outwardly curved ends, an upper hook extended upwardly from the intermediate portion of said arcuate bar and mounted in an inverted position, a horizontally disposed bar also extended from the intermediate portion of said arcuate bar, and an open hook carried by said horizontally disposed bar depending from the outer end thereof and spaced from said arcuate bar.

2. In a hip supporting bracket, the combination which References Cited by the Examiner comprises a horizontally disposed arcuate bar having outv UNITED STATES PATENTS wardly flared ends, a vertically disposed bar providing a shank, an inverted hook on the upper end of said shank 2 235}? et and positioned to extend outwardly from said shank, a 5 2995281 8/1961 Dixon u 224 25 horizontally disposed bar extended outwardly from said arcuate bar and an open hook carried by said horizontally FOREIGN PATENTS disposed bar depending from the outer end thereof and 386,047 1/1933 Great Britain.
