(01. 40—125)
The object of the present invention is to pro
vide a sign display stand or frame adapted to be
disposed upon a side-walk to receive, interchange
ably, signs or display cards advertising products
5 for sale in the store in front of which the device
is disposed.
A further object of the invention is to provide
a sign display stand or frame of the type speci?ed
which may be shipped in knock-down condition,
that is, by removal of the supporting legs from
the frame member and which is easily reassem
bled by the purchaser to whom the same is de
Another object of the invention is to provide a
structure of the type speci?ed wherein the dis
play cards may be interchanged through the bot
tom of the frame member.
Suitable embodiments of the invention are il
lustrated in the accompanying drawing, wherein
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a sign display
stand constructed in accordance with the in
vention, the sign contained within the frame
member thereof being shown as partly broken
Fig. 2 is a bottom plan view of the structure
shown in Fig. 1, the ends of the supporting legs
of same being broken away in part.
Fig. 3 is a fragmentary detail perspective view
showing a lower corner portion of the frame
member of the structure.
Fig. 4 is a detail vertical sectional view taken
on the line 4-4 of Fig. 1 illustrating the cross
sectional shape of the upper end rail of the frame
member of the structure.
Fig. 5 is a fragmentary detail perspective view
03 Cl
showing a portion of one of the supporting legs
of the frame member and a bracket secured
thereto for engagement with a side rail of ‘the
frame member when said supporting leg is as
40 sembled with said frame member.
Fig. 6 is a fragmentary detail vertical sectional
view showing another embodiment of the inven
Fig. 7 is a fragmentary detail perspective view
further illustrating the modi?ed form of con
struction illustrated in Fig. 6.
The device of the present invention comprises
a frame member consisting of channeled side and
top rails l and 2, respectively, in which the top
and side edge portions of advertising or similar
card or sign 3 is adapted to be received and en
The side walls of the side rail I of the frame
member are preferably welded at their lower ends
to the upwardly extending ?anges 4 of angle iron
5 which are spaced from each other a distance
equal to that which spaces apart the side walls
or flanges of the side rails of the frame member
and thus provides an open slot 6 between said
angle bars 5 through which the card or‘ sign 3
is adapted to be inserted into and removed from
the frame member.
Pivotally secured to one of the horizontally dis
posed flanges of one of the angle bars 5 and to
the lower face thereof, is a plurality of sign sup
ports ‘I which are adapted to support the sign or
card 3 disposed within the frame and are ar
ranged to be turned to the dotted line positions
shown in Fig. 2 to permit removal and replace
ment of said sign or card 3.
A pair of supporting legs 8 is provided for the
frame member above described, consisting each,
preferably, of an angle bar bent to arcuate form
and having bevelled ends disposed to cause the
extremities of said supporting legs to rest ?rmly
upon a supporting surface, such as a side-walk.
As shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 5, secured to» each of the
supporting legs 8 and to the vertically disposed
outer ?ange thereof, is a bracket plate 9 equipped
at its upper end portion with a socket member Illv 25
adapted to receive a lower end portion of one of
said rails l of the frame member. Each of said
plates 9 is welded, preferably, to the outer verti
cal flange of a leg 8, but may be otherwise secured
thereto. The arcuate upper ?ange of each of 30
the legs 8 is provided midway between its ends
with a recess ll and, at each side of said recess,
with a perforation l2 which is adapted to register
with a similar perforation in a horizontal ?ange
of an angle bar 5 for purposes of bolting or simi
larly securing the legs 8 to the said angle bars 5.
Obviously, the recess l I will register with the slot
6 formed between the angle bars 5 and thus permit
of the insertion of the sign or card 3 of the full
width of the frame member as indicated.
In practice, the frame member is made upv sepa
rately from the legs 8 with the brackets 9 secured
thereto and said respective component parts of
the completed device are forwarded to the ulti
mate consumer in disassembled condition, thus
rendering the entire shipment compact. The
consignee then assembles the structure as shown
in Fig. 1 whereupon it is ready for use.
In Figs. 6 and 7, I have illustrated a modi?ed
form of construction or different embodiment of
the invention wherein the supporting legs l_3 for
the frame member [4, constructed as illustrated
in Figs. 1, 2, and 3, are equipped with a bracket
member l5 comprising a U-shaped upper end 65
formation l6 adapted to receive the side rails of
the frame member I4 corresponding to the side
rails I of the structure of Fig. 1, the remainder of
said bracket member l5 comprising leg portions
I‘! between which the vertical ?anges of the angle
bars l8 of the frame member “I are received and
which terminate in horizontally disposed portions
indicated by reference numeral I5 to ?t over the
horizontal ?anges of the angle bars l8, the termi
nal ends of the portion l5 being L-shaped and
secured to the upper ?anges of the supporting legs
[3 by means of the rivets H! or in any other suita
I claim as my invention:
A sign display structure comprising a frame
equipped with channeled side and top rails and a
slotted bottom rail for engaging the peripheral
edge portions of a sign-plate and permitting in
sertion and removal thereof, the said bottom rail
equipped with outwardly projecting ?anges pro
vided with perforations at points adjacent to the
lower ends of the side rails, a pair of supporting
leg members provided in their upper faces with 10
perforations registering with those in the afore
said ?anges of the bottom rail of the frame, re
movable coupling devices engaged in the register
ble manner, as for example by welding.
In this structure, the upper ?anges of the sup ' ing perforations to secure the leg members to said
porting legs I3 are devoid of the recesses“ of the 'frame, brackets rigidly secured to said supporting 15
supporting legs 8 of the structure of Fig.1, the leg members and equipped with upper end por
said supporting legs 13 being adapted to be moved tions engaging the side rails of the frame member
telescopically outwardly out of engaging relation
20 to the frame member for purposes of inserting and
removing display cards, such as the card 3, the
latter being supported ‘upon the said ?anges of
the supporting legs l3 when the latter are .dis
posed in the position shown in Figs. 6 and 7, re
for cooperation with said coupling devices to
maintain said leg members ?rmly engaged with
the said frame against movement relatively there 20
to ‘and a‘pairxof sign supporting devices ‘each piv
otally secured to the lower face of bottom rail
and adapted to be moved to and from positions
spanning the slot therein.
