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.

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.
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
curing same together.
