To all whom it may concern.- Be it lmown that I, CHARLES P. MAISER, a resident of Pittsburg, in the county of Allegheny and State of Pennsylvania, have mvented a. new and useful Improvement in Pi e-Hangers; and I do hereby declare the fo owing to be a full, clear, and exact description thereof. 1 7' My invention relates to ipehangers, and has special reference to t at class of pipehangers which is employed infor sec and holding in position gas and other epipes.
The object of my invention is to provide a pipe-hanger of the class mentioned that can e easily and quickl secured between the joists .or rafters of a as well as one that can be adjusted-to the desired de ee and can be rigidly attached in' place an securely fastened together.
My invention conslsts, generally stated, in
the novel arrangement, construction, and
1 combination of parts, as hereinafter more specifically set fort wires.
and described, and particularl pointed out in the claims.
'1' enable others skilled in the art to which my invention appertains to construct and use my improved lpe-hanger, I will describe the same more y, referring to the accompanying-rdrawings, in which igure 1 is a perspective view showing a portion of the building construction and havlng my improved pipe-hanger secured thereto in position and o ding a pipe. Fig. 2 is a pers ective view of one of the two sections used in forming the bracket of the hanger. 3 is a perspective view of the strap or clamp for connecting the pipe and holding the same on the ha er. Flg. 4 is an enlarged top plan view of t e hanger connected to the pipe and showing the latter in section. Fig. 5 1s a like view showing the h er having an attachment thereon for the hzllfingof electric 6 is a side view of such holder for electric wires with the arms of the bracket in section.
Like bols of reference herein indicate like parts in each of the figures of the drawfn the drawings, A represents the ceiling of the building, an B represents the floor thereof, while between are arr ed the joists 0, upon which rests a gas-supp y pipe 1, having a T-coup 2 thereon for can-3 1g? a branc pipe 3, whic extends downwar y through the ceiling A and isconnccted to the chandelier. (Not shown.)
The pipe-hanger is shown at D and consists of two arms or bars4 for forming the bracket 4, which bars are-exact duplicates of one another and are formed of flat bars or pieces of sheet metal, so that they can be placed against each other. Each of these bars 4' has formed at one end thereof a. clamp or cli 5, which is bent out from said bar. and is adapted to fit over its opposite bar 4, as shown in Fig. 1. The'other end of said bars 4 are bent out at a right angle to the bed port1on thereof, as shown at 6, so as to secured to the joists c' by means of screws 7, which pass through holes or o enings 8 in said angular portlons 6 and ta e into said joists c. A clam in member 9 is adapted to connect with said racket 4 and w1th the branch pipe 3 and is formed of the forked portion 9, provided withtwo arms 10 thereon, which arms extend out at right angles from the body ortion 11 thereof and have at their ends the ooked or curved ortions 12 for fitting around the ipe 3. e bars 4 of the bracket 4 fit wit the opening 13,formed between the forks 10, and a set-screw 14 passes through a threaded ope 15 in said ody portion 11 and e a es with the adjacent one of the bars 4 o t e bracket 4 in order to securely clamp by a vise-like action the ipe 3 within the curved portions 12 of the orks 10 and against said adjacent bar 4 of said bracket.
The construction of my pipe-h er is such that, if desired, electric wires can e strung' and held upon the same by means of a' holder 16, such as is shown in Figs. 5 and 6, and this holder is formed with two chambers 17, which are insulated in any suitable manner, while between said chambers is a bridge portion 18, which is connected to and formed as part of the same. Lugs 01.8818 19 extend out from one side of the chambers 17, while between these ears and the chambers 17 a space or opening 20 is formed, so that the two bars 4 of the bracket 4 are adapted to be placed within said space or opening and underneath the bridge portion 18 in order that such holder 16 can be secured to the bracket 4 by means of a set-screw 21, which passes throu h one of said ears and e es with the side of one of the bars 4 of sad racket.
It thus be seen that my improved pipe-hanger'is simple in its construction and one end for holding the hanger in place, and 1 ufacture, as well as one whic will be ing the chande 'er thereto, thereby prevent-' mg such pipe from dropp' down, and at the same time will enable sue a ban er-to bepipe shoul happen,
used in cases where the to be-tilted or hungon an-mcline.
What I claim as m invention, and desire to secure by Letters atent, is.-
1. Ida pipehanger, the combination of two bars secured at one end for holding the hangerin place, clips on said barsfor fittingover its 0 posite bar to hold the same together, an a clamp connected to-one'side of said bars and enga 'ng with the pipe" on the o posite side of. sai bars to hold sald pipe in p ace.
2. Ina pipe-hanger, the combination" of two bars secured at one end for holding the hanger in place, clips'bent out from the other end of said bars for fitting over its opposite bar to hold the same together, and a clamp connected to one side of saidbars and enga ing with the pipe on the o posite side of said bars to hold said pipe in p ace.
3. In a pipe-hanger, the combination of two bars connected together and secured at y in position,
- fitting aroun 4. In a pipe-hanger, the combination of two bars connected together and secured at one end for holding the hanger in place and a forked clamp connected to one side oi and fitting around said bars for engaging with the pipe to hold said pi in place against the opposite side of said are. V
5. In a pipe-hanger, the combination of two bars connected together and. secured. at
one end for holding the hanger in place, and a forked clam connected to oneside of and said bars and having arms thereon for engaging with the pipe to hold said ipe in place against the opposite side of said bars.
6. In a pipe-hanger, the combination of two bars connected to ether and secured at one end for holding the hanger in place, a forked clamp fitting around said bars and having arms thereon for engaging with the.
pi e to hold said ipe in place against one si 3 oflthe bars(i an a set-screfiv clennected to sai 0 amp an engaging wit t e opposite side of. said bars to hold the clam in place.
In testimony whereof I, the sai -CHARLES P. MAisER, have hereuntoset' my hand.
