FIG. 9 is a perspective view of the shelf support of FIG. 8, with the support bracket positioned for supporting a shelf in an inclined position and the stop means illustrated in FIG. 6- positioned thereon.

Referring now to the drawings, and more particularly.

to FIG. 1 thereof, there is illustrated a display designated generally as 10, which includes a pair of spaced apart generally rectangular upstanding side pegboards 11, and a rear pegboard 12. Each of the pegboards 11 and 12 have front and rear surfaces 13 and 14 respectively. The pegboards 11 and 12 are mounted by way of any suitable fastening means (not shown) to the upstanding supports provided by the legs 15, the legs 15 being respectively disposed in bases 16 whereby the display is supported in an upright osition with the side pegboards 11 disposed parallel to one another. Each pegboard has a plurality of holes 19 therethrough to receive supporting prongs of various types of display hooks for attachment to the pegboards 11 and 12. Also as shown in FIGS. 1 and 2, a plurality of shelf supports 20 is mounted on the opposing faces of the side pegboards 11, with two pair of the shelf supports 20 respectively supporting the opposite edges of a first shelf 21 in a horizontal position, and two pair of shelf supports respectively supporting the opposite edges of a second shelf 22 which is disposed at an inclined position with respect to the display 10.

Each of the shelf supports 20 is identical, and as best seen in FIGS. 3, 4, 5 and 8, each of the shelf supports 20 comprises a generally rectangular base member 30 having a rear surface 31 adapted to bear against the face 13 of the respective pegboard 11. A plurality of mounting prongs 32 is integrally formed with one edge 33 of the base member 30, which prongs extend outwardly there from. Each of the mounting prongs 32 comprises a relatively straight first leg element 34 having one end formed integrally with the edge 33 of the base member 30 and extending at right angles to the plane of the base member. Each of the leg elements 34 is of sufficient length to extend through the openings 19 in the pegboards 11, and thus the length of each of the first leg elements 34 is determined by the thickness of the pegboard with which the shelf support 20 is to be used. Normally, the thickness of the pegboard will be at least one-quarter inch and the thickness of the material from which the shelf support 20 is formed will be less than the thickness of the pegboard with which it is to be used.

A second leg element 35 is carried by the outer end of the first leg element 34 and is disposed normal thereto, whereby the second leg element 35 extends in the opposite direction to the base member 30. The second leg element 35 comprises a front surface 36 that is substantially parallel'to the plane of the base member 30 and offset with respect to the rear surface 31 of the base member 30 a distance substantially equal to the thickness of the pegboard 11. As best seen in FIG. 3, the upstanding second leg element 35 extends upwardly above the opening 19 a suflicient distance so that the flat surface 36 thereof may bear against the rear surface 14 of the pegboard 11 after :he mounting prongs 32 have been inserted through the :ooperative openings 19.

Also as shown in the drawings, the base member 30 preferably includes a second plurality of vertically spaced mounting members integrally formed as by punching from the base member 30. Each of the second mounting members comprises a single leg element 37 which extends outwardly from the base 30 in the same direction as the first leg element 34 of the prongs 32. The leg elements 37 are disposed substantially normal to the base member 30 and each has a length equal to the thickness of the pegboard 11, whereby each leg element 37 is insertible through the openings 19 in the pegboard 11. The leg elements 37 provide additional support for the base 30 on the pegboard 11, thereby to distribute the forces applied to the pegboard 11 by the shelf support 20 over a greater area of the pegboard. As best seen in FIG. 5, the base member 30 is further provided with an opening 39 therethrough, for reasons he ea ter p ined.

It will be apparent from FIG. 2 that the spaces between each of the adjacent mounting prongs 32 is equal to the spacing between two adjacent holes 19 in the pegboard 11. It will be also understood that the mounting prongs 32 and the mounting members 37 are vertically spaced on the base member 30 such that when the base member 30 is mounted on the pegboard 11, each of the mounting prongs 32 and the mounting members 37 will be received by vertically spaced openings 19 on the pegboard.

. The shelf support 20 further comprises a support bracket designated generally as 40, rotatably carried by the base member 30 and extending outwardly therefrom in a direction generally opposite to the mounting members 32. As best seen in FIGS. 4, 8 and 9, the major portion of the support bracket 40 is preferably generally U-shaped in cross section normal to the longitudinal axis thereof and has a generally planar bearing surface 41 and generally planar rigidifying side flanges 42 formed integral therewith and disposed normal thereto.

The bearing surface 41 is further provided with an end flange 43 which is formed integral with the inner end thereof and is disposed normal thereto and extends in a direction opposite to the side flanges 42. As best seen in FIG. 4, the end flange 43 has an opening 44 therethrough of substantially the same diameter as the opening 39 in the base member 30. The support bracket 40 is rotatably connected to the base member 30 by passing a rivet 45 through the opening 44 in the end flange 43 of the support bracket 40 and the opening 39 in the base member 30; the rivet 45 being tight enough to prevent excessively free rotation of the support bracket. When so fastened, the support bracket 40 is mounted for rotation relative to the base member 30 about an axis perpendicular to the plane of the base member. In this regard, it will be appreciated that the bearing surface 41 is always disposed in a plane normal to the base member 30' regardless of the extent of angular rotation of the support bracket 40.

In-the preferred embodiment of the shelf support 20, each of the side flanges 42 includes an inwardly turned edgeflange 46 formed integral with the inner end thereof and disposed in substantially the same plane as the end flange 43, whereby the rear surface of the edge flanges 46 are adapted to bear against the face of the base member 30 so as to distribute the forces upon the base member 30 when an associated shelf, such as 21 or 22, is disposed upon the bearing surface 41.

Asseen in FIG. 4, the support bracket 40 may be formed of a single piece of sheet metal or the like, punched to provide the desired pattern and then folded along the dashed lines to provide the desired side flanges 42, end flange 43 and edge flanges 46. Also as shown in the drawings, each of the side flanges 42 is provided with agenerally rectangular slot 47 disposed substantially adjacent to the planar bearing surface 41 and extending in a direction generally parallel thereto, the slots 47 being provided for reasons hereinafter explained. In order to lighten the support bracket, suitable openings such as 48 may be punched in the side flanges 42. The bearing surface 41 is also provided with a plurality of aligned openings'49 which are adapted to receive fastening means such as-thescrews 25 therethrough, whereby a shelf such as 26 may be supported in cantilever fashion upon a single pegboard by passing the screws 25 through the openings 49 andinto the bottom surface of the shelf 26.

As seen in FIGS. 1 and 2, four of the shelf supports 20 areused to support the opposite edges of a shelf in either the horizontal position, as shown by the shelf 21, or, by appropriately spacing the shelf supports and rotating the support brackets so that the bearing surfaces 41 thereof lie in a common plane, the shelf may be disposed in any one of a number of angular positions with respect to the pegboards 11, in each of which positions the shelf will be disposed normal to the plane of the pegboards, as shown by the shelf 22.

When, the shelf supports 20 are used to support a shelf in an inclined position, it is necessary to provide stop means for use in conjunction therewith so as to prevent the inclined shelf from sliding off of the bearing surfaces 41 of the cooperating shelf supports.

A preferred form of stop means, designated generally as 50, is best illustrated in FIGS. 2, 6 and 9, and comprises an elongated plate 51 which is coextensive in width to the solts 47 provided in the side flanges 42 f the support bracket 40. One end of the plate 51 is turned upwardly to provide an upstanding end flange 52. The opposite end of the plate 51 is provided with a generally U-shaped return comprising a bight portion 53 and a return flange 54. The bight portion 53 is substantially equal to the distance between the slots 47 and the bearing surface 41 of the support bracket 40, whereby the slots 47 are adapted to receive the return portion 54 with the plate 51 overlying the bearing surface 41. As seen in FIGS. 2 and 9, the stop means is positioned upon the sup-port bracket 40 by inserting the return portion 54 thereof into the uppermost one of the slots 47 in the support bracket 40. In this position, the major portion of the plate 51 overlies the bearing surface 41, while the upstanding end flange 52 is disposed generally normal to and out of the plane of the bearing surface 41. When the stop means 50 is so positioned, the upstanding end flange 52 is adapted to engage the outer edge of the shelf 22 so as to prevent outward movement of the shelf relative to the shelf supports 20. When the shelf supports are used to position a shelf in a horizontal plane, the stop means 50 is easily removed from the shelf support 20 by sliding the return flange 54 out of the respective slot 47.

As illustrated in FIGS. 1 and 2, when the shelf 22 is inclined, articles such as 60 may tend to slide therefrom. In this case, an article retaining member '65, which may be of the same material as the shelf 72 and coextensive in width thereto, is positioned on the bearing surface 41 between the outer edge of the shelf 22 and the upstanding end flanges 52 of the stop means, whereby the article retaining member 65 extends above the plane of the shelf so as to engage articles positioned on the inclined shelf and prevent them from sliding therefrom.

The shelf supports 20 may be easily removed from the pegboard 11 and relocated in any desirable position so as to position the shelf in a selected angular position on the pegboards 11 by first inserting the second leg elements 136 of the mounting prongs 32 into a corresponding number of openings 19 at the desired location, and then pivoting the base member 30 downwardly to insert the 'leg elements 37 into the corresponding number of openings, whereby the rear surface 31 of the base member 30 is brought into contact with the face .13 of the pegboard.

The desired angular position is then established by rotating the support bracket 40 until the bearing surface 41 lies in the desired plane. A second shelf support 20 is then placed on the pegboard 11, the position thereof being determined by the depth of the shelf to be supported. The support bracket 40 of the second shelf support 20 is then rotated so that the bearing surface 41 thereof lies in the same plane as the bearing surface of the first shelf support. Upon positioning a pair of shelf supports 20 on each of the opposing faces of the upstanding pegboards 11 so that the bearing surfaces 41 of all of the shelf supports 20 lie in the same plane, and upon inserting the stop means 50 thereon in the manner heretofore described, a shelf such as 22 may be positioned thereupon in any desired angular position with respect to the parallel pegboards 11.
