(Cl. 248—221)
This invention relates to hangers for mounting
electrical apparatus.
An object of this invention is the provision of
a hanger for mounting electrical apparatus on
'Another object of this invention is the provi
spaced relation for cooperating with the spaced
bolts 32 and 34, respectively, in retaining the
hanger on the support M. The opening 36 is
an elongated slot, the lower end of which termi
sion of a hangerfor mounting electrical appa
mates in an enlarged opening suitable for re
ratus having enclosing-cases of different shapes
on supports of different sizes and shapes.
This invention, together with other objects,
will be better understood from the following de
ceiving the outwardly extending end of bolt 32.
The lower opening 38 is an elongated slotsimilar
to the elongated slot portion of opening 38 and 10
terminates in an enlarged opening provided in
the ?ange member 26 for receiving the outwardly
extending end of‘ bolt 36 as the hanger i0 is
mounted on the support 54.
Since the openings 36 and 38 are in spaced 15
relation similar to bolts 32 and 3d, the hanger
10 may be easily mounted on the support it by
scription when taken in conjunction with the ac
companying drawing, in which:
Figure l is any elevational View illustrating an
The face l8 of the channel member i6 is pro
vided with a plurality of openings 35 and 38 in

features of this invention is employed;
Fig. 2 is a top plan View of the assembly illus—

Fig. 3 is a side elevation'al View of the hanger
embodying the features of this invention;
Fig. 4 is a top plan View of the structure shown
in Fig. 3;
Fig. 5 is a rear elevational View of the hanger
shown in Fig. 3; and
Fig. 6 is a bottom plan View of the structure
shown in Fig. 3.
Referring to the drawing, and particularly to
Figs. 1 and 2 thereof, this invention is illus
trated as comprising a hanger it} for mounting
3 O electrical apparatus such as a distribution trans
former IE on a suitable support M, such as a
wood, concrete or metallic pole or standard. In
the drawing only the case of the transformer is
shown, it being understood that the case is suit
35 able for carrying the bushings and other attach
ments associated with the case.
As illustrated in Figs. 3 through 6, the hanger
it comprises an elongated channel member it
having a face 53 and side walls 29 and 22. The
ends of the face of the channel member [6 termi
nate in flanges 24 and 26 for receiving the trans
former l2, as will be explained more fully here
In order to seat the channel member I6 on the
45 support it, the side walls 23 and 22 of the chan
nel member terminate in outwardly extending
flanges 28 and 38, respectively. The ?anges 28
and 313 function as feet for seating the channel
member E6 on the support I4.
In order to carry the hanger it], bolts 32 and
36! are disposed in spaced relation through the
support iii. One end of each of the bolts extends
outwardly from the support for receiving the
hanger, as will be explained more fully herein
55 after.
so seating the feet 28 and 36 of the channel mem
ber on the support that the ends of bolts 32 and
31! register with and project through the enlarged
portions of openings 36 and 38, respectively, in
the channel member. When the openings 36 and
38 thus receive the bolts 32 and 34, respectively,
the channel member may then be slipped down
over the projecting ends of bolts 32 and 34 to a
position where the bolts are retained in the elon
gated slot portion of the openings 36 and 38.
With the hanger H! in this position, it may be
secured to the support It by so tightening the
bolts that the bolt heads engage the face I8 of 30
the. channel member.
In order to hang the transformer 52 on the
hanger, the ?ange 24 of the hanger H) is pro
vided with an opening or socket [it for receiving
a pin 42 which may be provided on the case of 35
the transformer !2. The ?ange 24 carries down
wardly projecting side walls 6 and 8 so disposed
as to seat against the face [8 of the channel
member “5 to support the ?ange in its outwardly
extending position. Other means for supporting 40
the ?ange may however be employed.
The pin 42 may be carried as an integral part
of the case of the transformer l2. In the modi
?cation, shown in Figs. 1 and 2, the pin 42 is
carried as an integral part of a ?ange 44 which 45
is secured to the case of the transformer near its
upper edge in any suitable manner such as by
welding. As shown a plurality of ?anges are
disposed in spaced relation about the case of the
transformer. The ?anges 44 in this position aid 50
in maintaining the cover of the case in position.
A cover holding lug 48 is associated with each of
the flanges 44 and is so positioned that one of
its ends engages the cover of the transformer I2
and the other of its ends engages an associated 55
?ange 44. Each of the lugs 48 is secured to an
associated ?ange 44, by means of a bolt 50, in a
position where it clamps the cover on the case.
In addition to aiding in maintaining the cover in
position on the case, the ?anges 44 also serve as
hangers, from suitable channel members and
angle irons. The hanger member may be easily
mounted on the support, as explained herein
before, for receiving the transformer.

bracket 52 seated against the case of the trans
openings disposed in spaced relation in its face

opening 58 of the bracket 52. In order that the
transformer may be mounted on the support in
a plurality of positions with respect to the sup

in spaced relation around the case similarly to
the spaced ?anges M.
By providing the feet on the channel member
and on the bracket, the hanger may be employed
for mounting transformers having round, octa

Further, by providing the spaced feet
on the channel member at a distance from the
face thereof, it is evident that the hanger may
be employed with supports of different sizes, since
the opening between the spaced feet and face
of the channel member is of a size sufficient to
receive supports of small circumferences while
the feet are so spaced as to satisfactorily seat on
supports of large circumferences or on supports
which have substantially ?at surfaces.

bolts of the case whereby the case may be locked
in its supported position to prevent movement of
the case to cause the disengagement of the lifting
pin and socket.
