Application filed May 7, 1910. Serial No. 560,072.
T 0 all Iwhom, it may concern:
Be it known that I, EMELIA F. KANDL- BINDER, citizen of the United States, residing at Shreveport, in the parish of Caddo and State of Louisiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sack- Holders, of which the following is a speciiication.
This invention has for its object, a simple and efficient construction of device for holding or suspending a bag or sack with its mouth in distended condition, and the invention consists in certain constructions, arrangements and combinations of the parts that I shall hereinafter fully describe and claim.
For a full understanding of the invention, reference is to be had to the following description and accompanying drawings in which:
Figures 1 and 2 are perspective views illustrating different applications of my improved sack holder; Fig. 3 is a similar view of the device detached; and; Fig. 4 is a side view of the device.
Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the following description and indicated in all the views of the accompanying drawings by the same reference characters.
My improved bag or sack holder is constructed out of a single piece or length of spring wire of suitable strength and stiffness, the wire being twisted upon itself at an intermediate point as indicated at 1 to form an attaching stem or shank. After the wire is twisted to form the shank 1, it is separated and curved in opposite directions to form a complete intermediate loop or convolution 2, and is then continued in opposite directions to form an upper one-half convolution 3 and a lower one-half convolution 4, the wire being thence extended so as to form two suspension arms 5 that are disposed in divergent relation to each other as clearly illustrated in the drawing, the arms being designed to be sprung together to the necessary extent to engage the rim of a bag or sack.
Each of the arms 5 is provided intermediate of its ends with two crimps 6, said crimps being spaced from each other as shown and extending outwardly and upwardly in a plane oblique to the planes of the convolutions 2, 8 and 4. At the terminus of the outer crimps 6, the respective arms 5 have their extremities outwardly deflected as indicated at 7.
From the foregoing description in connection with the accompanying drawings, the operation of my improved bag and sack holder will be apparent.
In the practical use of the device, the suspending or outstanding arms 5 may either be inserted within the mouth rim of the sack to be held open or the mouth rim may be turned outwardly into engagement with the crimps 6 of the arms. That is to say, in the practical use of the device, the arms 5 may be brought together suiiiciently to permit of the crimps 6 being inserted within the mouth rim of a sack to engage therewith, whereupon by releasing the arms, the spring tension thereof will cause them to spread outwardly away from each other, the crimps thereby securely engaging the mouth of the sack, the two sides thus formed, being held respectively by the crimps in the angle between the outermost crimps and the outwardly deflected ends 7, and in the shoulders formed by the juncture of the innermost crimps with the adjacent inner portion of the arms. If desired, instead of the precise arrangement just described, the mouth of the sack may be inserted between the distending arms 5 and the rim' of the sack turned over upon the crimp, these two methods of engaging the device with a sack or bag are illustrated respectively in Figs. 1 and 2.
My improved sack holder may be supported in the hand or in any other desired way, Figs. 1 and 2 illustrating two diiierent ways in which the device may be supported. For instance, as illustrated in Fig. 1 the stem 1 may be inserted downwardly into a socket 8 that is formed in a metal or other bracket 9 secured by screws or other fastening devices to the side of a shed or other suitable support. Or, as illustrated in Fig. 2, the convolutions which form a loop or eye, may be slipped over a stick driven in the ground, so as to support the bag holder in this way.
Having thus described, the invention, what is claimed as new is:
The herein described sack-holder, oo n.- structed of a single piece of spring wire twisted upon itself intermediate of its ends to form an attaching shank, the` wire being then separated and coiled in opposite directions to form a complete intermediate con Volution, upper and lower one-half convolutions constituting an eye, the wire being then extended from the one-half oonvolutions to form outstanding arms which diverge outwardly from the coiled portions, each of said arms being formed with an inner crimp and an outer crimp, said crimps extending outwardly and upwardly in planes oblique to the planes of the convolutions, the outeri0 most crimps terminating in outwardly delected extremities.
In testimony whereof, I aiiX my signature in presence of two witnesses.
