Trevellyan, Chicago, Ill., assignor to Cleanser Products, Inc. , Chicago, Ill., a Vcorpo ration of Illinois Application July 13, 1936, Serial No. 90,352 1 Claim. (Cl. 15-143) My invention relates to holders for pads to be from contact with material used in the pad, when used in scouring, polishing or cleaning metal, scouring pots and pans. ~ . » wood or textiles. It is designed particularly to At theend of the baseV I3, and integral with protect the fingers or" the operator from contact the arms, are lips I 6 which form a pocket or sump 5 with steel wool, liquids or powders used in polish to catch drip from the pad after it has beenused, 5 ing or cleaning, and to catch drippings from the and while the device is standing in the position pad after it has been used, and the holder is to act as a self stand to be set down at any conven 10 ient place. In the accompanying drawing-~ Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the holder; Fig. 2 is a sectional elevation of the holder and a pad contained therein, the same being used in a scouring or polishing operation; and 1r Fig. 3 is an elevation of a holder and pad, the holder being partly broken away to show the sump for catching drip from the pad when the device is not'in use. The holder is of spring metal, and is formed 2 O by stamping a blank from sheet steel or other suitable material. The blank is bent to form two arms i I and I2 of unequal dimensions, which arms are connected together by an intermediate part i3 which serves as a base on which the Vdevice 25 stands when not in use. The two arms are substantially parallel with each other and at right angles to the base. The outer face of each arm is pressed inward to form an exterior recess, with a consequent inward bulge 30 on the inner face toward a corresponding inward bulge on the opposite arm. On arm I I,'the recess shown in Fig. 3. . ' _ ¿ On the arm I 2, and at an elevation about equal ' to the height ofthe top of arm II, are two small prongs Il which extend toward the opposite arm. 10` They are conveniently punched from the metal of arm I2. They serve as prick points-to prevent the pad from slipping in the holder while it is being used, while at the same time not inter fering with inserting or adjusting th pad in the '15 holder. _ ` In this connection, it may be observed that, when inserting the pad in the holder, the upper edges of arm I2 are conveniently grasped between thumb and fingers of one hand while the other. 20 hand presses an edge of the pad against the in- ‘ Ward bulge on arm II, and adjacent to its tip I4. This action opensthe spring arms and permits the easy insertion of the pad between said arms. When the device is being used, as shown in Fig. 2, 25 the grasping action of thumb and ñngers presses the arms toward each other and holds the pad firmly. v Y What I claim is: . Y « e A pad holder formed of spring metal and hav- >30 ing two substantially parallel arms between which is adapted to receive the thumb of the operator, Y a pad may be held by the initial spring action of as shown in Fig. 2. On arm I2, the recess is wide the arms, the metal between the arms forming a enough to receive the first, second and third iin base integral with the arms and upon whichr the 35 gers of the operator. At the tips of the arms, beyond the recesses, the metal turns outward as shown at I4 and I5. The purpose of this con struction is to protect the digits of the operator holder may stand when not in use, and also pro- 35 Viding a sump for catching drip from a pad held between the arms of the holder.
