I DISPLAY ROD. No. 457,977 Patented Aug. 18, 1891..
U ITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
GOTTLIEB \(VILKENING, OF DAYTON, OHIO.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 457,977, dated A g 18, 1891- Application filed November 28, 1890. Serial No. 372,816. (No model.)
thereon,which forma part of this specification.
My invention relates to improvements in display-rods, the features of which willbe fully hereinafter described and claimed.
The object of my invention is the suspension of articles of merchandise in windows or doors; but the device may be used for other purposes. I accomplish the obj eot by the mechanism illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure I is a view of the device as attached to a frame. Fig. II is a longitudinal section of the nut.
Like letters designate like parts in the two views.
The device comprises the nut A, provided with right and left screw-threads in the ends, a central portion to be grasped by the hand, the rods B and O threaded to engage said nut, and the bearing-plates D and E, in which the ends of the rods are seated. The former of the bearing-plates is shown in longitudinal section. It has a broad face to engage a j amb 3 5 I or wall, a cavity to receive the end of the rod, and an inwardly-projecting part which tends to hold the rod against sagging. It is prepared for use by placing one bearing-plate against a jamb, entering the end of one rod. Then place the other bearing-plate against the opposite j amb and turn the nut until the plates are held firmly against said jambs. In this position articles may be suspended thereon for the display of the same or for other purposes.
F is a frame to illustrate the device when in a proper condition for use.
Having fully described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patr cut, is
In a display-rod, the combination of the frame F, the bearing-platesD and E, provided with sockets, the nut A, provided with right and left screw-threads, and the rods B and C, the outer ends to engage said plates, and the threaded ends to engage said nut, the turning.
of which looks the device in position against thejarnbs of said frame, substantially as set forth.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
