1 Claim. (01. 248—243)
My invention relates to improvements in ad
justable brackets and more particularly to a
bracket that is slidably supported by a vertical
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
ets mounted to a plurality of vertical standards
at various heights and showing the boxes or
cases in phantom.

structed of two angle irons spaced apart from one
Figure 3 is a top or plan view of the device at

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

will be noted that the angle iron [0 can be of a
single or double construction and will permit the

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.
