‘ 2 Claims.
This invention relates to a novel ‘special utility
device in the nature of a paper bag or sackhold
ing stand expressly designed as a kitchen or
household accessory, and usable. in particular as
a temporary trash bag holder.
In carrying the invention into effect,‘ I have
perfected what I believe to be a simple, inexpen
sive garbage and trash bag holder for kitchen use
such as may be effectively and satisfactorily used
10 as a holder and prop for ordinary paper bags or
sacks, whereby to permit a paper bag to be tem
porarily erected thereon to function as a conven
ient, readily disposable receptacle for garbage,
trash, and other waste materials usually handled
in the kitchen.
The preferred embodiment of the invention re
lates, in its speci?c form, to a simple all~wire
structure characterized by a stand including a
bag resting base horizontally disposed and a ver
tical upright rising therefrom, there being an ad
justable ?xture on said upright having self-adapt
ing retention ?ngers or elements projectible into
the mouth of the bag to hold the mouth open and
to at the same time retain the body of the bag
substantially erect to function properly as a
receptacle for miscellaneous trash.
Other features and advantages will become
more readily apparent from the following descrip
tion and drawings.
In the accompanying drawings, wherein like
numerals are employed to designate correspond
ing elements and parts throughout the views:
Figure 1 is a front elevational View showing the
preferred adaptation or embodiment of the in
vention and illustrating the paper sack or tem
porary trash bag in dotted lines.
Figure 2 is a side elevation observing Figure 1
in a direction from left to right.
Figure 3 is a fragmentary perspective view il
40 lustrating the speci?c wire formation of the slid~
able bag distending and sustaining unit.
Figure 4 is a fragmentary perspective View
showing the base or lower portion of the rack
forming stand.
Figure 5 is an exaggerated sectional view taken
approximately on the plane of the line 5-5 of
Figure l to show the con?guration of certain of
the features.
In the drawings the rack-forming and bag
propping stand is designated, as a unit, by the
numeral 5. The slidable adapter fixture is indi—
cated at ‘l. The temporarily usable and disposable
paper sack or bag is indicated in dotted lines and
denoted by the numeral 8. In practice different
55 sized paper bags will of course be used such as
(Cl. 248—101)
may be handy at the time in the kitchen. Under
the circumstances, the whole structure will be
proportioned to take care of paper sacks ranging
from say 5 to 10 pounds, as‘ the case may be.
Reviewing now the details ‘contributing to the 5
production of the unit called the stand or rack
6, it will be observed that this is preferably an
all-wire structure. It includes an outstanding
portion which may be referred to conveniently as
the base 9, this being adapted to support a paper 10
sack or bag. The base embodies spaced parallel
longitudinal members l0 and Il joined together
by transverse end members l2. At the juncture
of the corner portions of the frame the wire is
bent to provide depending supporting legs or feet H in
I 3 sufficiently high from the floor to facilitate the
circulation of air beneath the bag to avoid rapid
deterioration. On the inner or back frame mem
ber I0 is an upstanding horseshoe-shaped guard
14 adapted to prevent transverse slippage of the
bag off of the base. This avoids allowing the bag
to swing into contact with the wall or washboard,
as the case may be. The bag, however, sits on
the transverse cross-members l5. These in con
junction with the frame form‘ a sort of an open 25
grid to properly support the bottom of the bag.
The outer ends of these members are bent later
ally as indicated at it, so that the outer frame
member I I forms a guard rail in conjunction with
the guard clip [4. Consequently, the bag is well
supported on the base. The upright may be said
to be in the nature of a bail. The lower ends are
properly shaped and curved as indicated at I‘! to
coordinate with the base. The arm portions l8
are substantially in spaced parallelism and con
verge toward the top, the bight portion I9 being
designed to hang on a nail or hook or the like
if desired. Incidentally, the stand or rack can
be placed on the floor with the upright against
the wall, or the upright forming the hanger bail 40
can be suspended from a nail or the like.
The slidable bag holding unit I is also con
structed from wire. It is preferably made from
a single length of wire bent into the peculiar shape
shown. It is bodily adjustable up and down to
suit the height of the sack or bag. Incidentally,
the bail or upright is somewhat V-shaped so as
to allow the unit ‘I to he slipped down thereover
and to be easily adjusted up and down.
Referring to the unit I in detail, it will be
noted that the intermediate portion functions as
a sliding frame and includes a central rod por
tion 20 having looped grips 2| at its ends partially
embracing the upright l8. These elements 2! are
essentially guides. The guides 2| are attached 55
to complemental extensions curved as indicated

While the preferred embodiment of the inven
tion has been shown and described, it is to be
understood that minor changes coming within
the ?eld of invention claimed may be resorted to
if desired.
By way of introduction to the succeeding 10
claims, it is to be pointed out that so far as the
novelty is concerned, it is not absolutely essen
tial that the structure be made from so-called
wire. In other Words, it may be made from sheet
shaped gripping jaws. The terminals of the wires
are formed into resilient coils, that is, coiled
springs 25, whose free ends are bent to provide
retaining and bag distending ?ngers 26.
10 ?ngers are of the ?owing curvature shown in
Figure 1, and the extremities thereof are bent at
right angles as at 28 to ?t into the ordinary bag,
the terminals being shaped as at 28 to serve as
guards so as to avoid puncturing the light paper
Broadly, the unit '1 comprises a frame made up
of the parts 20 and the upper and lower guiding
friction retaining grips 2| and 24. This grip
equipped frame is in turn provided with spring
coils made of spring metal the coils being at
tached to the spring ?ngers 26 and having the
special adapter features 2'! and 28 to accommo
date a conventional paper sack or bag.
The en
tire slide 1 can be adjusted to the required height
25 to accommodate the bag. Then the ?ngers 26
can be pressed in toward each other and the
metal or any equivalent material possessing req
uisite yieldable properties and tensile strength.
Moreover, it is not essential that the base of
the structure be as wide open in design as is illus
trated in the drawings. It can be satisfactorily
formed from punctured sheet metal and still be
within the purview of the claims.
I claim:
1. A bag holder comprising a Wire stand hav
ing a base to accommodate a paper bag, an up
right attached to and rising from the base, said 25
upright being of general U-shaped form to permit
adapter members 21 and 28 inserted in the bag

the like.
The sack or bag 8 is placed on the stand by
resting the closed bottom thereof on the base
forming rack and placing the same in the posi
35 tion shown in dotted lines in the drawings. The
base in itself is not variable or adjustable, but
will accommodate the average bag and avoid un
necessary shifting or accidental displacement.
As before indicated, the stand can be placed on
40 the floor or it can be hung by the feature I9 on
a nail or the like (not shown). Then the device
or clamp 1 is adjusted to meet the requirements,
