STOLLENWERK ATTdE/YE'Y, 2,510,433 Patented June 6, 1950 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,510,433 ADJUSTABLE BRACKET Harry A. Stollenwerk, Milwaukee, Wis. Application August 24, 1948, Serial No. 45,879 1 Claim. (01. 248—243) 1 My invention relates to improvements in ad justable brackets and more particularly to a bracket that is slidably supported by a vertical standard. The object of my invention is to provide a' de vice that is adjustable, slidable and removable on and from a single vertical standard. Another object of my invention is to provide a device that has its depending end extending outward in a single direction from’ the vertical support or standard. Still another object of my invention is to pro vide a device that is constructed to provide a ?at plate so as not to interfere with the support of a plurality of cases or boxes disposed below and above the support or bracket. A further object of my invention is to pro vide a device that may be attached or disengaged from the vertical standard without vertical slid able action, thereby permitting the ' vertical 2 ets mounted to a plurality of vertical standards at various heights and showing the boxes or cases in phantom. Figure 2 is a fragmentary cross-sectional view of the device applied to a vertical standard con structed of two angle irons spaced apart from one another. Figure 3 is a top or plan view of the device at tached to an angle iron which is shown in cross 10 section. Figure 4 is a front view of the device as shown in Figure 3. Figure 5 is an end view of the device as shown in Figure 3, and Figure 6 is a fragmentary perspectivev view of the bracket and its sliding member in an assem bled position. Similar characters of reference indicate corre~ sponding parts throughout the several views and 20 referring now to the same, the vertical standards are shown in the form of an angle iron indicated standards to be supported at their top and bot by the character 10. These angle irons ID are tom ends. spaced apart from one another by means of tubu A still further object of my invention is to pro lar spacers I I through which a rivet or bolt I2 is vide a device that is simple in design, economical 25 disposed. to manufacture, yet practical for the purpose for There is a flat plate member l3 which is sup which it is intended. ported in a horizontal position onto the vertical It is manifest that in the storage of narrow standard In and this plate l3 has an upwardly long cases of tubing or the like, it is quite fre disposed channel shown in two sections l4 and I5 quently advantageous to stack the cases into with a space It between them. One of the chan 30 position where any single box or case is accessible nel members [4 is shown having a longitudinal and ready for removing without interfering with slot l1 disposed in its vertical outer face. This the rest of the cases. It is also necessary in many slot [1 is open at its inner end. The channels cases to stack the boxes in a manner where it is [4 and [5 are of a size and contour to receive impossible to attach the vertical supports to the a sliding member having a tongue l8 which ex ?oor or the top wall or ceiling. The device de 35 tends inward for engagement with the channels scribed herein consists of an adjustable bracket l4 and Hi. The tongue l8 has an outwardly pro that may be slidably attached to an individual jecting pin member l9 arranged for engagement vertical standard and may be arranged in a man with the slot I‘! in the channel M. The rearward ner whereby the individual brackets project out portion of the sliding member is provided with an ward in one or both directions from the vertical 40 outwardly extending lever 20 which is formed standard. The outwardly projecting plate con integrally as part of the sliding member and is sists of a bracket constructed of sheet metal or the like, and will not take up space between the cases or boxes being supported, and the slidable of a size equal or shorter than the projecting por tion of the angle It]. In the engagement of the device to a vertical feature permits the adjustment of the bracket to 45 standard such as is shown by the angle iron l0 any desirable height. The device lends itself to it is merely necessary to push the Sliding member cases or boxes of any width or length and will 20 outward to where the pin l9 ‘contacts the closed perform efficiently in the stacking of merchan portion of the elongated slot I‘! which will leave dise, it will conserve space and provide acces 50 the space l6 between the two channel members sibility to individual cases. l4 and I5 open for engagement with the angle Other and further objects of my invention will iron shown as W. Obviously the ?at plate I3 is become more apparent as the description pro- provided with an inwardly disposed slot shown ceeds and when taken in conjunction with the as 2| in Figures 3 and 6 to accommodate the drawings in which leg of the angle iron [0. After the horizontal 55 Figure 1 is a front view of a plurality of brack 2,510,433 plate I3 is placed in engagement with the angle iron l0 it is merely necessary to ‘pull the lever member 20 toward the center of the slot l6 which will cause the tongue I 8 of the sliding member to frictionally contact the outer surface of the angle iron I0 and will cause this tongue l8 to engage the opening within the channel l5 form-— ing a part of the horizontal member I3, In this way the device is rigidly attached to the vertical Having thus described my invention, what 1 claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent in the United States is: A device of the character described to be used in combination with vertical angle iron standards, said device comprising a ?at plate horizontally disposed and having its depending end extending outward from said angle iron standard when said device is attached, a pair of upwardly depending standard it and can be moved up and down to 10 channel members integrally formed at one edge any desired height. By referring to Figure 1 it of said plate, said channel members spaced apart will be noted that the angle iron [0 can be of a single or double construction and will permit the from one another forming an open space between them, one of said channel members having an engagement of as many of the brackets 13 as are elongated slot on its outer face, said slot open deemed necessary, the material in the form of 15 at its inner end, said flat plate having an elon narrow cases or boxes is stacked onto the floor gated slot open at its outer end, said slot extend adjacent to the vertical standards, and the brack ing inward from the space between said channels, et members contact the upper face of some of the boxes or ‘cases, and being thin sheet metal or the like, will permit additional boxes to be placed on top. In this way the danger of having a high. stack of boxes or crates which are comparatively narrow from tipping is eliminated, inasmuch as they are disposed between or along side of the vertical standards. The standards may be moved 25 to- any position within a room or enclosure and the support lended by the brackets will permit a horizontally disposed sliding member consisting ,of a tongue member for engagement with said channels, said tongue member provided with an outwardly extending pin arranged for engage ment with the open slot in said channel member, and a lever member integrally formed with the tongue forming said sliding member, said lever member being outwardly disposed and having a projecting portion for the actuation of said slid ing member.
