What is claimed is:
A wall protector comprising a rectangular cen
ter plate adapted for vertical disposition on a
stove, rectangular side wings disposed one along
each side edge of said center plate, hinges con

movement of said side wings relative to said cen
ter plate between a folded position in which they
are` superposed on one side of said center plate
and an extended position in which they extend
outwardly from the other side of said center plate, 20
a top Wing disposed along the top edge of said
center plate, and hinges connecting said top wing
to said center plate for movement between a
side of the latter, the last mentioned hinges sup«
porting said top wing in the inclined position on
the center plate, said center plate having in the
edge thereof opposite said top wing a notch for
receiving the oven vent of a. stove, and said side
wings extending above the top edge of said center
plate to contact with the end edges of said top
wing when the latter is in said inclined position.
The following references are of record in the
ñle of this patent:
folded position in which it is superposed at said
one side of the center plate and a position in 25
which it inclines upwardly from the top edge of
the center plate and outwardly from said other
