(Cl. 24S-48.1)
This invention relates to an improvement in
gutter hangers, and is an improvement on the
hanger set forth in my former patent, No.
1,528,896, granted March 10, 1925.
In the hanger of the type set forth in my pat
ent, the supporting strap was attached perma
nently, as by a rivet, to the cross-portion of the
hanger that extends above the gutter. These
hangers usually are applied and _held in place
on the gutter when the latter is being soldered,
but the hanger straps project out in the way of '
the workman, and frequently caused displace
ment of the hangers and even separation of the
soldered joints by reason of being struck acci
dentally in working around the gutter, or in
moving the same. Furthermore, the hanger strap
becomes broken in use and it is then difficult to
replace, because a new strap would then have
to be riveted to the hanger.
The object of this invention is to improve the
lation to a roof by a plurality of hangers spaced
at the proper distance apart, which hangers are
usually suspended from the roof.
The form of hanger illustrated is in general
substantially like that set forth in my former pat- i
ent, No. 1,528,996, granted March 10, 1925, which
is shown here to illustrate the application of the
present improvement thereto.
This hanger comprises a cross-bar 3, that ex
tends transversely from side to side of the edges 10
of the gutter, having a hook portion 4 at the
plain inner edge of the gutter for embracing the
same and having an eye 5, at the opposite end
thereof receiving the bead 2 of the gutter. A
bridge 6 extends about the underside of the gut
ter to support the same being formed integral
with the bar 3, the whole being preferably
stamped from sheet metal. One end of the bridge
6 has a wedge-shaped tongue 1, inserted behind
connection between the hanger and the strap for
removal of the strap from the hanger when work

to the hanger when it is desired to suspend the
gutter. At the same time, this enables the strap
to be easily and simply replaced,- if it becomes

In my present invention, the cross-bar 3 has

and 3. A guide clip I0 extends transversely of the 30
cross-bar 3 with its ends turned downwardly at

bar and the ends I I are crimped under the edges

30 and a simple insertion of a new strap.
This is accomplished by the provision of a
guide clip rigidly attached to the cross-bar of the
hanger slightly off-set from the center thereof
for slidably receiving the hanger strap, so that
the strap will extend upwardly approximately

As shown in Fig. l, the line 3--3 has its major
length approximately in the middle of the gutter, 50
from which it will be evident that the outer end
of the guide clip Ill is disposed approximately at

directionand extends upwardly from the outer 55
end of the clip to its point of support, which ar

This arrangement permits ready removal or
replacement of the hanger strap when desired
and enables the operator to apply the hanger
without the strap to the gutter before or during
soldering thereof and makes it unnecessary to
10 insert the hanger strap thereto until he is ready
to mount the gutter on the roof, thus greatly

The straps l 4 may be made and sold separately
from the gutter hanger, being formed of a ñat
strip of metal, as shown in Fig. 5.
