the understanding, however, that the invention is
35 not con?ned to any strict conformity with the
showing of the drawings but may be changed or
modi?ed so long as such changes or modi?ca
tions mark no material departure from the sa
lient features of the invention as expressed in the
40 appended claims.
In the drawings:
Figure 1 is a view in perspective of a structure
representing the present invention.
Figure 2 is a. sectional view taken through the
4:5 structure from the front to the rear thereof.
Figure 3 is a sectional view taken on the line
3-—3 of Figure 2.
Figure 4 is a sectional view taken on the line
4—4 of Figure 2, upon an enlarged scale.
Figure 5 is a section on the line 5—5 of Figure 2.
Referring now more particularly to the draw
ings, the form of invention here illustrated is de
signed for partial support from a floor surface and
an adjacent wall and the device comprises, as
55 shown, a rectangular horizontally disposed frame
1y extending rail of the frame.
Between the front and rear rails 3 and 4 and
parallel with the same, is an intermediate track
supporting bar I4 which has its ends upturned,
as indicated at I5, for attachment to the side rails
2 and this supporting bar I4 extends over the tops
of the track bars I I and is attached to each by a 40
short suspension ear I6, Figure 3.
Associated with each track bar II is a hanger
unit, which is generally designated by the numeral
I1, and which comprises two suspension units I8
and a coupling bar I9. Each suspension unit, con
sists of a grooved pulley wheel 20 through the cen
ter of which passes an axle bolt 2|, and a hook 22
which has a vertically disposed relatively long
back portion 23, the upper end of which has an
opening for the reception of the axle bolt 2 I. At
its lower end, each hook is formed to provide a
horizontal portion 24 and a short upstanding bill
25. Thus, each hook has a substantially rectan
gular article engaging portion, the form of which
is particularly designed to facilitate the engage- 55
ment thereover of a bar of a bed spring struc
ture. Intermediate its ends the hook 22 has the
inset section 26 which lies beneath the wheel 28
and has attached to one side thereof the lower end
of the link plate 21, the upper end of which con
tacts the opposite side of the pulley wheel and
has the axle bolt 2! extended therethrough in the ,
manner shown.
The bolt 28 which passes through the lower
10 end of the link 21 and the intermediate part 25
of the hook, also passes through one of a series
wheel, and a connecting element between the
frames, each of’ said hanger units being of an
overall length materially less than the support
ing bar whereby the unit may be moved a sub
stantial distance forwardly with relation to asso
ciate hanger units, and means whereby the over
all length of each unit may be'changed to accom
modate articles of various widths consisting of a
plurailty of apertures in the connecting element
and a bolt for selective engagement therein and 10
coupling the element with a frame.
