This bracket is more particularly iuustrated'm ’
Figure 5 and is composed generally of the arms 32
and $3 connected angularly by the elbow 3l; The
` arm 33 carries at its vforward end the diagonal
arm 35, and on the outer end of such diagonal
arm is the terminal ñange 36 having two or more
'openings 31. -The arm 32. as besi-l seen in Fig
ure 2,`lies along the face of the support IIl. The`
arm 33'extends out from. the wall'or back plate .
at substantially right angles or perpendicularly
-thereto at the side of regulating equipment 21.
The purpose of the arms 32 and 33 is to secure
support from the back plate for the bracket but "

out interference from the regulatingiequipment.
It is desirable to have the flange 38 in a central
position with respect to the hood in order that
the rod or prop 38, shown in Figures 3 and 6,
may engage the hood in alinement with the'hinge
and in alinement with its center mass to better
support the same; also that fiange 38 may pro
trude through slot 43, best illustrated in Figure 3,
so that padlock may be placed in outer opening
3l for the purpose of locking the equipment when
not servicing, inspecting or otherwise manipulat
'I'he prop 38 is formed at one end with the
offset pin 39 and connecting shoulder 48. At the
other end it is similarly formed with the shoulder
4| and the offset pin 42.
The hood in its'front wall 25 near the lower
-edge thereof is formed with one or more open
ings or perforations 43.
In the use of the device, the back plate H is
20 attached to the wall I0 by the use of fastenings
I2 of appropriate character or pipe legs 45. The
regulating equipment 2`|> is mounted upon the
back plate il. The hood may be attached to the
hinge plate 20 before the back plate is mounted
in place or afterwards. When the hood is
mounted the rear edge of its upper wall 24 .en
gages against the support l0 and the lower edge
of the wall 24 extends down a sufficient distance
to house and protect the regulating equipment..
30 When access to the regulating equipment -is to
out portions 44 to receive and accommodate rods
45 shown in Figure 7. 'I'hese cut-out and bent
over portions also serve the purpose of holding
the equipment more rigid. The rods extend
down and telescope with other rods 46, the rods
being held in place by set-screws 41. The upper
convergent ends of the rod 45 may be affixed to
the back plate as by fastenings 48 entering open
ings 28‘of the back plate H.
The back plate Il forms at once a support for
the hood and for the‘regulating equipment. yIt
also forms the support for the bracket, the brack
et being so formed as to derive its support and
centering from the bac-_k plate and to engage by
means of the prop centrally with, the hood with
out interference from the regulating equipment.
The hood may be a one-piece seamless metal
lic structure which will be of light weight yet
strong and durable and of economical manu
facture. ,
It is obvious that various changes and modifi
cations may be made in the details of construc
tion and design of the above specifically described
embodiment of this invention without departing
from the spirit thereof, such changes and modifi 25
cations being restricted only by the scope of the
following claimsz-
‘1. In a. housing installation, a back plate hav-_
ing means to support the same from a support,
a hood hinged to said back` plate to open up
be hadthe hood may be raised, for instance to
the position shown in Figure 3, and if desired wardly, a bracket composedpf angularly joined
held in this raised position by the prop or sup ,arms with a diagonal arm extending forwardly
therefrom and a perforated terminal flange on
port 38 leaving the workman’s hands free to ad
35 just, to repair, to attach or detach or to replace the diagonal arm, said bracket mounted on the~
the regulating equipment or other parts. Thev back plate, a prop releasably and rotatably car
pin 39 of the prop 38 is insertable in inner hole ried by said fiange and formed with a cooperating
pin and shoulder, said hood having an opening
3l of the flange 38. When so inserted the rod to
releasably engage said pin with an adjoining
38 is turned so that the shoulder 48 will-move
40 into the engaged opening, in which case the pin wall whereby the hood/may rest upon said shoul
39, being angularly disposed with reference to the
shoulder 48, will act at one side of the flange 3B
to retain the prop or rod 38 upon the bracket.
The rod 33 itself will engage the opposite wall
45 of the flange 36 to prevent the shoulder 48 from
going through the engaged perforation in this
direction. The shoulder 40, partaklng of the
cross section of the rod 38, is rounded or sub
stantially so, and therefore the prop or rod may
60 rotate freelyabout the flange 38.
2. In a housing installation, a back plate hav
ing means to secure the` same to a support, a
hood hinged at its upper rear portion to an upper
part of said plate whereby the hood may open
upwardly about. the hinge connection, a bracket 45
composed _of angularly joined arms with a di
ago‘nall arm extending forwardly therefrom and
a perforated terminal fiange on the diagonal
arm, one of the angular arms being fixed to said
back plate, and a prop releasably and rotatably 50
carried by said flange and formed with a cooper

a wall adjoining the opening, a bracket supported

said means within the lower portion of’ the
the same, the aperture 43 will be removed from

ity, or may be placed in a broadly speaking up
right position resting against the wall under the

removed by turning the rod and withdrawing
the pin 33 axially yfrom the opening 31.l

padlock, said outer portion positioned to project
through said opening when the hood is in the
lowered position, and a prop rotatably carried by
the outer portion of said bracket and .having a
pin on its upp'er end for fitting in the opening of
the hood when raised and a
