Beehler, Baltimore, Md, assignor of one-half to Marian Faris Beehler, Baltimore, Md. Application May 8, 1937,. Serial No. 141,583 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: Fig. l is a plan View of my combined support ing and clamping means as it would appear when attached to a suitable attaching surface, the view 30 illustrating, by dotted lines, how an article would appear when supported and clamped thereby to the attaching surface; Fig. 2 is a longitudinal edge view of the parts shown in full lines in Fig. 1; Fig. 3 is an enlarged sectional view showing in detail one end portion of the supporting means with one attaching means and the clamping means in operative positions on an attaching sur face; 40 be described, so that said strands may be se cured to a suitable attaching surface S in parallel, slightly spaced relationship. v . 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 _ the coiled portion H beneath the bead 9. When tractive, as well as ornamental manner. tive to said wall. (Cl. 211—31) 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. ported by the loops ll upon the strands 5 and 6 with the pin it extending at right angles to the 2 . 2,114,519 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. 3. A quick detachable article supporting means 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. taching and securing means engaged beneath 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 35 2. A quick detachable article supporting means comprising a pair of button-like members each having an annular inturned rim portion, a spring closed in the appended claims. 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 ton-like member having a spring pin attaching 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.
