Conner, Casper, Wyo.; said Conner assignor to said Smith Application March 10, 1937, Serial No. 130,173. 2 Claims. The present invention relates to a display de vice designed to be attached to- any suitable sup porting structure and carrying a plurality of mov able elements, each of which may contain adver 5 tising medium, and the entire assembly being designed to attract attention to itself and to ad jacent material or commodity on display. More speci?cally the invention includes a sup porting element, shaped at one end for attach ment to a frame, pipe or analogous structure and provided at spaced intervals with vertical pins for supporting rotary display elements, and a trans verse rod removably ?xed to the supporting rod, the latter terminating in vertical display sup 15 porting pins. Another feature resides in having the support (01. 40-37) ment such as a pipe. To provide for securing the assembly to such elements one end of the sup porting wire or rod l is shown in Figure 1 as bent at l3 to provide a clover leaf structure l4 constituting rings or loops for the reception of such fastening elements as screws or bolts. In Figures 1 and 2 such a fastening element is shown attached to the wall A by means of screws l 5. In Figures 4 and 5 the end of the supporting rod or wire I to be attached to a supporting pipe 10 B is illustrated as terminating in a curved clamp section I6. A companion clamp section ll co operates vvith the section l6 and these clamp sec tions are secured together by the transverse bolt I8, which extends through looped aligned extremi 15 ties of the clamp parts. ment, whereby different types of supporting ele In Figure 6 the supporting arm i is illustrated as terminating in a hanger element for engaging ments may be utilized and the transverse element may be kept of a standard design. any type. ing element separable from the transverse ele Referring to the drawing: Figure 1 represents a top plan view, Figure 2 an end elevation, Figure 3 shows in elevation the connecting ele ment used in Figure 1, Figure 4 shows a connecting element designed for attaching the structure to a pipe or the like, Figure 5 is a top plan view of Fig. 4, and Figure 6 is a modi?ed type of supporting ex 30 tremity for use in connection with window frames and the like. Reference character I shows the supporting ele ment formed of wire or a metal bar of small diameter, ?attened horizontally at an interme 35 diate point 2 in its length and terminating in vertical extension 3. A transverse wire or bar 8 is ?attened at an intermediate point 9 to overlie the ?attened portion 2 of the supporting wire l. The ?attened portions 2 and 9 are formed with registering perforations through which a screw I 0 extends for removably securing these parts to gether. A nut I0’ is shown for fastening the screw in position. The extremities of the trans verse wire or bar 8 are bent upwardly to provide vertical supporting pins 4 and 5 for the rotatable spiral display elements 6 and.'!. A supporting pin l l is shown ?xed to the supporting rod arm I for carrying the spinning wheel l2. A somewhat similar spinning display device 12’ is supported on the upper extremity of the vertical element 3, which constitutes the outer end portion of the Wire l. The assembly heretofore deescribed may be used in connection with window displays, or may 5 be secured to a radiator or to a cylindrical ele over a window sill or horizontal structural bar of In this form of support the rod or wire I is bent at right angles at 26 and forwardly at 20' then downwardly at 2| for a short dis tance and transversely of the rod l at 22. The transverse portion 22 0 extends an equal dis tance on each side of the rod arm l and is then bent upwardly at 23, rearwardly at 24 and in wardly at 25, to provide companion parts to por tions 20, 20’ and 2!. The extremity of the wire is wrapped around the rod arm, at 26 adjacent the original bend forming the right angle exten 30 sion 20. From the foregoing it will be apparent that the transverse bar 8 with the supporting pins 4 and 5 and the rotary display elements 6 and ‘i can be of substantially standard construction and are ca pable of attachment to the supporting element 1, and the latter may be selected according to the type of fastening means desired. That is to say the transverse element 8 and its companion parts may be secured to supporting arms I where the latter has securing means of any of the three types illustrated. It is contemplated that dis play or advertising material may be placed on the surface of the rotating elements and these elements may be interchanged or redesigned pro 45 vided they are of the general type illustrated, wherein radiating heat will effect their rotation. In this connection it will be seen that by using the type of assembly adjacent a window, near which is positioned a radiator, the heat from the radiator will cause the parts 6, l, I 2 and 12’ to rotate. In Figures 4 and 5 the element B may be a stove pipe and the supporting arm will po sition the display elements over the stove body whereby the heat will cause the same to rotate. 5,5 2 2,108,002 In Figure 6 the structure is adapted to overlie any bar or rod adjacent a heated element to provide for the operation of the mechanism. Changes in detail and construction and ar rangements of parts may be made without de parting from the spirit of the invention. What we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is: 1. In a display device, a supporting arm pro 10 vided at one extremity with means for securing same to» a support and at the other extremity with a vertical pin, said supporting arm having a ?attened intermediate portion formed with an opening, a transverse bar formed with a ?attened 15 intermediate portion having an opening register ing with the opening formed in the ?attened por tion of the supporting arm, fastening means ex tending through the openings and securing the arm and the transverse bar together and vertical pins carried by said bar and said transverse arm for supporting a plurality of rotatable elements. 2. In a display device, a supporting arm pro vided at one extremity with means for securing 5 same to a support and at the other extremity with a vertical pin, said supporting arm being formed with a ?attened intermediate portion, a transverse member having display elements sup ported at its extremities and an intermediate en~ 10 larged portion for engaging the flattened por tion of the supporting arm, and fastening means extending through the engaging portions of the arm and transverse member and removably se 15 curing same together.
