F. P. AUMANN. STRIKING BAG SUPPORT. APPLICATION FILED NOV. 2, 1903.

IIIIII'IA maaanmxa UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

' FRANK P. AUMANN, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, ASSIGNOR TO THE CURTAIN SUPPLY COMPANY,

OF NEWARK, NEW JERSEY, A CORPORATION OF NEW JERSEY.

STRIKING-BAG SUPPORT.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, FRANK P. AUMANN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Ohicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Striking-Bag Supports, of which the following is a specification.

The object of my invention is to provide a simple, inexpensive and eflicient support for striking bags, which may be secured to a wall in such manner as to support the bag at a suitable distance from the wall and permit of the movement of the bag in the arc of a circle concentric to the point of support.

My invention is shown in the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a side elevation showing the bag at rest. Figs. 2 and 3 are detail views; and Fig. 4 is a diagrammatic view showing the path of movement of the bag in operation.

In the drawing, 5 represents a supporting arm preferably consisting of a pipe having a threaded connection with the central boss 6 of a base plate 7, which is perforated for the passage of screws to secure it to a wall or other support. At the outer end, the tubular arm or pipe has a cap 9 threaded thereon, the end wall of the cap being threaded to receive a pivot bolt 10, having a cylindrical shank 1 1, over which a hanger 12 is fitted so as to turn freely thereon in a plane parallel to the base and at right angles to the length of the arm. A washer 13 is interposed between the squared head 14: of the bolt and the outer face of the hanger eye. This permits the hanger to swing freely on its bearing. At the lower end, the hanger has an eye 15 to which the rope 16 of the striking bag 17 is attached. The rope or cord affords a flexible connection between the hanger and the bag, and is preferably threaded through the eye and a knot tied in its end, as shown in Fig. 3. The bearing of the eye is elongated and rounded at its ends so as to prevent cutting of the rope and avoid interference with the turning and other movements of the rope.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented July '7, 1908.

Serial No. 179,558.

In the operation of this support the hanger piece is confined against the end wall of the cap and therefore can turn freely on its axis in a single plane, but is prevented from swaying out and in toward the wall. When the bag is struck, the hanger piece is confined to a swinging movement in a plane parallel with the wall or support and at right angles to the length of the arm. The hanger piece will turn to permit the bag to swing above the arm, and in punching the bag either for exercise or exhibition, the bag will swing in the arc of a circle above and around the arm, the blows being delivered in the plane of movement of the support and in such manner as to prevent the bag from hanging vertically, as indicated in the diagrammatic view, Fig. 4.

I claim:

1. A striking bag support comprising an arm having one of its ends adapted to be socured to a suitable support, and its other end free, a cap on the free end of said arm, a bolt engaged with the end wall of the cap, and a hanger piece confined by the bolt flatwise .against the end wall of the cap, substantially as described.

2. A striking bag support comprising in combination a hollow arm, a bracket or base piece having a threaded connection with the arm, a threaded cap closing the outer end of the arm and a hanger piece mounted flatwise against the end wall of the cap, substantially as described.

3. A striking bag support comprising in combination a supporting arm, a base piece or bracket having a threaded connection with such arm, a cap closing the outer end of the hollow arm, a bolt engaged with the end wall of the cap, and a hanger piece confined by the bolt flatwise against the end wall of the cap, substantially as described.
