CLOTHES DRIER
Tito Prinoipessa, Ellwood City, Pa.
Application March 22, 1937, Serial No. 132,375
5 Claims. (Cl. 211-171)
My invention relates especially to clothes dry
ball 3 in Patent No. 1,866,987. aforesaid, if de
'
ing machines of the type developed in Letters sired.
The under face of the top disc has an annular
Patent No. 1,866,987, issued July 12‘, 1932, al
‘ though its use is not limited to use in such ma
groove 6' adjacent a ring 3. The disc I also has
chines.
Primarily the present invention has for its ob
aperipheral flange 1‘ vertically slotted at equal
r
of, which engage the head, as a pivot and then
intervals as at 8,. the slots being of a width
to pass the rods 20 but not their‘ ball ends 2|.
Radially disposed grooves 9 are provided in the
under face of the disc I and similar radial grooves
I4 are provided in the top face of the lower disc 10'
II. A groove 9 and a groove Ill‘v together form
an approximately cylindrical‘ passage-way for
the ball‘ 2| on the end of a rod 20. Each groove
9 is deeper at its outer end than at its inner end,
while each groove M is deeper at its inner end
than at its outer end‘; thus the passages 9—I4
pushing them radially inwardly they will,
will incline downwardly from their outer ends
through action of the weight of the outer por
tion of the rods and the clothes thereon, be
caused to become looked, as it were, against be
ing pulled out and folded or dropped down ver
to their inner ends.
ject to provide an improved rod-carrying head by
10
the use of which the rods on which the gar
ments are hung for drying can be folded down
when‘ not in use or be held horizontally extended
in their operative position without the use of
clamps or other positive fastenings.
‘ Further, the invention has for an object to
‘ provide a rod-carrying head so constructed that‘
' by swinging the rods upwardly on the ends there
tically.
25
Other objects will in part be obvious and in
part be pointed out hereinafter.
To‘ the attainment of‘ the aforesaid objects and
ends, the invention still further resides in the
novel details of construction, combination and
arrangement of parts, all of which will be ?rst
fully described in the following detailed descrip
30 l tion,.and then be particularly pointed out in the
appended claims, reference being had to the ac
companying drawing, in which:
Fig. 1 is a face view of the bottom face of the
top section of the head.
i
groove 6, to hold the ball and prevent the rod
20 from being accidentally pulled out and
dropped down. On the other hand the grooves
M1 at their inner ends are as deep as the groove
I 3, and offer no obstruction to the free movement
of the ball 2| when it rests on the bottom of the
groove I3, as will later more fully appear.
The disc I has a center annular ring 4 which
engages a similar ring I6x of the disc II, the
latter having a hub I6 to ?t on the pole 22 of the
Fig. 2 is a face View of the top face of the
hot-air-blowing unit 23, the perforated cover
bottom section. of the head.
Fig. 3 is an enlarged. detail vertical section of
a portion of the head, and showing one rod in its
horizontal operative position in full lines and in
24 of which. forms a guard for the motor, fan
and heaters (not shown) used to generate and
blow hot air upwardly toward the clothes.
The upper and lower discs I and II may be
secured together by screws I‘I threaded into holes‘
I‘91in the lower disc I I and passing through hole
' its folded down position in dotted lines.
' Fig. 4 is a detail edge view of a portion of the
head.
Figs. 5, 6 and 7 are detail sections on the lines

It will be further noticed that the lower disc
‘I I1 has an annular groove I3 opposite the groove
6 in the upper disc I to receive the ball 2|‘. Fur
ther, the inner ends of the grooves 9 do not go as
deep as the‘grooves I4, but leave a shoulder II]
which ?ts behind the ball 21 when it is in the
5-5, 6--6, and 'I—-‘I, respectively, of Fig. 3.
Fig. 8 is an elevation of the invention as ap
plied to a drying machine of the type above
stated.
In the drawing, in which like numbers of ref
50 erence indicate like parts in all the ?gures, I
represents the top section or disc and II the
lower section or disc of the rod-carrying head.
The upper disc I has a central dome 2 which
may be recessed or drilled at 5 to form a con
55 venient seat for a bearing ball similar to the
[8' in the upper disc I.
‘ '
The lower disc II has a ring I5 to register
with the ring 3 of the upper disc I when the
parts are assembled.
Operation
Assume the rods are in the down or folded
position (Fig. 8) and it is desired to extend them
for the purpose of hanging clothes thereon.
The rods are swung up in the direction of the
arrows in Fig. 8 and pushed in toward the
center of the head. As soon as they shall have
been pushed in until the balls 2| pass the shoul
ders ID the leverage of the rods will raise the 55
2
2,117,627
balls 2| into groove 6 where they will be “locked”
slots said rods may be swung from a vertical posi
by the shoulders It], the points of fulcrum being
tion upwardly and outwardly to a horizontal posi
at the places where the grooves I4 reach the ver
tion and vice versa, and means at the inner ends
tical edge slots I2, in the periphery of the disc
H. The slots l2 register with the slots 8. Since
of said passages forcooperating withsaid enlarge
the diameter of a ball 2| is greater than the
width of the slots 8 or l2 the rods 20 can not
be removed from or drop out of the head |—l I.
This rod and head unit, while especially de
signed for the drier of Patent No. 1,866,987 afore
said, may be used on stationary pole supports
22, or on any other suitably placed pole and be
either stationary or rotatable as desired.
From the foregoing description, taken in con
15 nection with the accompanying drawing, it is
thought that the construction, operation and ad
vantages of the invention will be clear to those
skilled in the art.
What I claim is:
