5 Claims.
My invention relates to improvements in port~
able supporting and clamping meansfor hats or
other articles, and more particularly to such a
device having means for attachment to fabric cov~
erings of vertical or horizontal walls in any de
sired or appropriate position or extent, the at
taching means beingr so constructed and arranged
as to‘releasably engage the wall fabric and when
attached covers substantial areas of the wall
10 fabric and thus presents special surfaces for the
display of advertising matter in a useful and at
An object of the instant invention is to provide
a simple, quick detachable, non-rigid article sup
‘port which is in itself longitudinally adjustable
relative to a wall to-which it is attached and which
has quick detachable means adjustable longitu
dinally of said sup-port for securing and clamp
ing an intermediate portion of said support to
the attaching wall, whereby to secure an article
carried by said support in ?xed position rela

Further objects and advantages as will appear
from the following description are realized by a
25 construction of which an exempli?cation is shown
in the accompanying drawing, wherein:

ing and clamping means as it would appear when

Each of the buttons 1 and B comprise a disc
like shell or casing of celluloid or other suitable
facing material having an inturned edge which is
reinforced and finished with a marginal rim or
bead 9 at the back side of the button. A wire
pin l0 having its end portion l l remote from the
point coiled to overlie one side of the pin, is se- 1
cured to the rear side of each button by springing _

Fig. 4 is a rear view, partly in section, of the
parts shown in Fig. 3 illustrating in detail the
means for securing the parts together and to an
attaching surface;
Fig. 5 is a perspective view of a wire pin at
45 taching means as it would appear when removed
from the casing of an attaching button; and
Fig. 6 is a view similar to Fig. 5 of the slidable
attaching pin means as it would appear when re
the parts are thus‘assembled the,v pin I0 is sup—
ported in a position transverse to the vertical
axis of the button with the pointed end of the 1
pin extending beyond one side of the button as
shownin Figs. 3 and 4. It will be observed by,
reference to these ?gures, also Fig. 5, that the ad
jacent ends of the elastic strands 5 and 6 are
forcibly clamped between the coiled portion ll
of the pin and inturned edge of the button cas 20
ing beneath the bead 9. It will also be noted
that the strands 5 and 6 are securely held in
laterally spaced relation to each side, of the pro
jecting portion of the pin Ill by the spaced ?at
tened side or indented portions 12 of the coiled
5
pin portion II. By indenting or ?attening the
coiled wire portion at the spaced points desig
nated as l2 the compressible material of the
strands clamped thereby is prevented from slip 30
ping longitudinally and making unnecessary the
use of additional means for securing the ends
of the strands to the buttons 1 and 8.
It will be appreciated from the foregoing that
instead of cutting and thus using two separate 35
strands 5 and 6, that one length of elastic mate
rial folded intermediate its ends may be em~
ployed.
Mounted upon the strands 5 and 6 so as to be
slid longitudinally between the attaching buttons
l’ and 8 is a pin carrying button is. This button
i3 is. similar in most respects to the buttons 1 and
8 and carries a Wire coil attached pin M which
is secured beneath the bead l 5 of the button shell
or casing in the manner already described. The
coiled end portion it‘ of the pin I4 is, however,
bent at one side of the pin to provide a pair of
adjacent loops ill, the loops extending at sub
stantially right angles to the plane of the coiled
moved from the casing of the longitudinally ad
CH C justable strand clamping button.
In the drawingthe portions designated as 5 and
6 represent a pair of elastic strands of any suit
able length, and l' and 8 designate a pair of pin
portion of the pin so as to rest upon the outer
side of the bead I5 and project from the rear
side of the button. The button I3 is thus sup
carrying buttons which are secured to the op
55 posite ends of the strands, in a manner later to
strands.

By means of the button-like attaching mem
bers 1 and 8, above described, the strands 5 and
6 are clamped between the rim of the buttons
and the surface S of the wall to which the but
tons are attached through the medium of the
spring wire pins. Each attaching member thus
functions independently as a securing means for
its portion of the support. It is not necessary
therefore, that the attaching pins be held in en
10 gagement in the fabric of an attaching Wall solely
through the medium of tension exerted by the
pin attaching and securing means engaged be
neath the rim of each member, and a pair of
article supporting strands extending between said
members and clamped between said spring pin
means and rim of said members.

comprising a pair of button-like members each 1O
having an inturned rim portion, a spring pin at
elastic strands which extend between the pins,
as has heretofore been proposed.

the rim of each member, a pair of article sup
As each button-like attaching member ‘I and 8
porting strands extending between said members
15 is secured to a substantial area of 'the attaching
surface and the intermediate portions of the
article supporting strands are similarly secured to
the attaching surface in clamping an article
thereagainst, wear and tear on the material of
20 the attaching surface is thus prevented.
As shown in Fig. 4, the pin I4 may extend par
allel to the strands 5 and 6, as indicated by dotted
lines. In such an arrangement there would be
no tendency for the pin to become dislodged
25 from its clamping engagement with the fabric
base by side motion imparted to the strands by a
hat supported as indicated in Fig. 1.
While I have shown and described but a single
embodiment of my invention, it is to be under
30 stood that it is capable of many modi?cations.
Changes, therefore, in the construction and ar
rangement may be made which do not depart
from the spirit and scope of the invention as dis

having an annular inturned rim portion, a spring

I claim:
1. A quick detachable article supporting means
comprising a pair of button-like members each
having spring clamping means for attaching and
securing the members to a fabric wall covering,
40 a pair of strands secured to said members to ex
tend in parallel relationship therebetween, and
an article clamping member slidably carried by
said strands and having means for attachment
to said fabric wall covering.
andv clamped between said spring pin means and
rim of said members, and a longitudinally adjust
able article clamping member comprising a but

and securing means slidably carried by said
strands.
4. A quick detachable article supporting means
comprising a pair of button-like members each
having an inturned rim portion, a spring pin at
taching and securing means having a coiled end
portionv engaged beneath the rim of each mem
ber, a pair of article supporting strands extend
ing between said members, the coiled end por
tions of said pins being formed at one side to
receive and immovably clamp said strands be
neath the rim of said members, and an article 30
clamping member slidably carried on said strands
and having means adapted to be attached to a
wall covering intermediate said pair of button
like members.
5. A quick detachable longitudinally adjustable 35
article supporting and clamping means, compris
ing a pair of button-like attaching and securing
pins, a pair of strands secured to said button-like
members to extend in parallel relationship there
between, an article clamping button-like attach 40
ing and securing member slidably carried by said
strands.
