JOHN J. KEGLER, OF MAQUOKETA,
ATTACHMENT FOR SUPPORTING SIGNS.
To all whom "it may concern:
Be it known that I JOHN J. KEGLER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Maquoketa, in the county of Jackson and State of Iowa, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Attachments for Supporting Signs, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to an improvement in attachments for poles for supporting signs.
The invention consists in certain novel features of construction and combinations of parts which will be hereinafter described and pointed out in the claim.
In the accompanying drawing :F igure 1 is a view in elevation showing the invention applied to a pole; and Fig. 2 is a top plan view.
A represents a pole, and 1 is a pin connected to the pole having the outer end thereof projecting upwardly. A rod 2 is mounted upon the pin 1 and is provided at one end with a hook formation 3, the hook being formed by one end of the rod being bent downwardly and then upwardly, forming a U-shaped hook. The hook 8 is adapted to engage the pin 1 from the lower side of the pin. The rod is twisted for forming a ring Specification of Letters Patent.

4 which is adapted to be received over the up-turned portion of the pin 1, whereby the rod is connected to the pin. A sign 5 is pivotally mounted upon the rod 2 by any suitable connection. The weight of the sign causes the end of the rod carrying the hook 3 to engage the pin, and thereby hold the sign out from the pole.
This attachment forms a means for readily supporting or disconnecting the sign.
Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Let-- ters Patent, is
An attachment for supporting signs, comprising a pole a pin connected to the pole having an upturned end, a rod, a hook formed at one end of the rod adapted to engage the lower surface of the pin said rod being twisted for forming a ring which is received over the up-turned end of the pin, and a sign adapted to be supported upon the outer end of the rod.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature, in the presence of two witnesses.
JOHN J. KEGLER.
