Fig. 5 is an elevation of another form of my
My present invention relates to brackets and
more particularly to an improved pipe hanger. invention;
My present; invention is adapted for use as a
pipe hanger, and in which one of the component
.6 parts thereof comprises a member divided into
a number of sections connected together by con
necting links of reduced diameter. Such mem
ber may be made of'indeterminate length divided
. into a plurality of individual sections preferably
ill of substantially equal length. I may produce
from such indeterminate length a member of the
desired length, to ?t any particular position, so
that my improved hanger may be utilized in any
situation. It is particularly adapted for use in
15 hanging pipes from a ceiling or other similar
place where‘ the height of the ceiling or other
similar place above the level of the pipe to be
hung may vary considerably, and in which event
my pipe hanger may be readily and easily adapt
20 ed to ?t the varying distances of the pipe from
the ceiling, along the length of such pipe. Also
with my improved hanger, the number of parts
required to be kept in stock by a plumber or
other artisan is reduced to a minimum, as it is
25 only necessary to keep in stock the usual mem
ber to be fastened to the ceiling or other support,
the usual collar to surround the pipe and a num
ber oflengths of the speci?c member which is
vdivided. into a plurality of substantially equal

Referring to the drawings, Ill designates a plate
of any desired form, which is adapted to be se
cured to a support, as 'a beam ll of a ceiling‘ or
other portion, of a structure, by a plurality of
screws l2.
The plate l0 as shown in the draw- 4
ings has the central portion provided with a
downwardly extending member [3, such member
being internally threaded.
M designates a collar which surrounds a pipe
it to be supported relative to the beam l l. The ,
collar M is provided with internally threaded lugs
it through which extend set screws ll. The set
screws ll are employed'to engage with the pipe
it and hold the same in adjusted position inthe
collar M, as clearly shown in Fig. 1. Prefer
ably the set screws l'l extend radially of the col
lar Mt. Diametrically opposite the set screws ll,
there is-formed on the collar M an internally ,
threaded tubular member it. For the purposes
of the present construction the diameter of the
threads in the internally threaded member it
is equal and similar to the diameter of the
threads in the internally threaded member it on
the plate 00.

.As the distance between the length of pipe I15
55 plate and a pipe supporting‘ collar;
and the supporting beam ll depends on circum
stances and varies greatly in different jobs and in
different portions of the same job, it is necessary
to have a connecting member between the plate
ill and the collar H which positions the plate
l0 and the collar it properly with respect to each
other so that the pipe l5 maybe maintained
either horizontally or have any slope through—
out its length that may be desirable.
Pursuant my present invention the above ob
Jectives are accomplished by breaking oi! from
the indeterminate length of’ member shown in
Fig. 4, a length comprising as many of the sec- '
placed nuts 3b. The sections 25 and 29 hold the
pipe IS in position without the aid or set screws,
'as in the case illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2.
The plate 2i and upper section 25 are con- _
nected by a length of the threaded member
shown in Fig. 4. The method of assembly is as
above described in connection with Figs. 1 and 2.
Whereas I have described my invention by
reference to specific forms thereof, it 'will be
understood that many changes and modi?cations
may be made without. departing from the spirit
of the invention.
