2 Claims.‘
This invention ‘relates to laundry trays and
particularly to improvements in shelves suitable
for attachment thereto so as to provide a con
venient place for soap, brushes and other laundry
materials.
The primary object of our invention is to pro
vide a shelf that is easily attached to a con
ventional laundry tray and which may be also
attached to an adjacent wall, and so constructed
10 that two shelves may be ganged together.
Another object is to provide such shelf with
suitable optional knock-out openings to accom
modate various types of plumbing ?xtures.
A further object is to utilize the downwardly
15 extending front, back, and sides of the shelf as
clamps and braces for attachment to the tray or
to the wall.
v
The ?nal object is to stamp an article of the
type mentioned out of one piece of metal thereby
inducing and furthering economy of manufac
20
ture and simplifying installation.
We accomplish the objects of our invention by
the devices and means set forth in the following
description and which are illustrated in the ap
2 OK pended drawing, wherein like parts are designated
and referred to by like reference characters, and
wherein:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of a laundry tray
having our improved shelf mounted thereon;

Figure 2 is a top view- of the shelf;
Figure 3 is a rear view of the shelf;
Figure 4 is a cross-section of the shelf taken
along the lines 4-4, of Figures 2 and 3;
Figure 5 is a cross-section of the shelf taken
35 along the lines 5-5, of Figures 2 and 3;
Figure 6 is an enlarged view of a portion of
the shelf taken along the lines 6-6, of Figure 2,
showing knock-outs;
Figure 7 is an enlarged cross-sectional view of
40 the back of the shelf attached to a wall;
Figure 8 is an enlarged cross-sectional View of
the backs of two shelves attached together;
Figure 9 is a sectional View taken along the
lines 9-9, of Figure 2, showing the formation of
45 a corner of the shelf;
Figure 10 is a bottom View of the Figure 9;
Figure 11 is a front View of the shelf, the back
inner walls of the trays and the bottom-supply
faucet mounted thereon;
50
Figure 12 is a view similar to that of Figure 11,
showing a top-supply faucet mounted on the tray
and shelf; and
Figure 13 is a partial view of‘ a top-supply
faucet bracket taken along lines 13-13, of the
55 Figure 12.
(Cl. 211-86)
A practical embodiment of, our invention is
illustrated in the Figure 1, Where we show our
improved shelf 19, attached to the back of a con
ventional two-part laundry tray 20. The shelf
59, consists of a piece of sheet metal stamped or 5
otherwise shaped to form a platform 2|, a front
section 22, side sections 23, and a back section 24,
each section extending downward from the edges
of the platform 21. The top horizontal surface‘
of the platform 2|, has a bead 32, around its 10
back and side edges to facilitate draining. It also
has a lower step 25, and an upper step 26, in
which there is a soap receptacle 21. The shelf
19, may be plated, enameled, or otherwise coated
to prevent rust and to faciliate cleaning.
15
At a distance from the corners of the front and
side sections 22, and 23, respectively, correspond
ing to the thickness of the back tray wall 28,
the side sections 23, are cut and bent inward
under the platform 2|, and made parallel to the 20
front and back sections 22 and 24, respectively.
The end portions of the front section 22, are cut
away as is also a middle portion of the same
section in order to make the shelf 19, ?t snugly
over the back wall 28, side walls 29, and the
partition 39, of the tray 20. The bent in portions
31, of the side sections 23, are somewhat springy
or resilient and form together with the front
section 22, a clamping means for holding the
shelf E9, to the'tray 29.
The plumbing ?xtures used with laundry trays
of this type are generally of two styles and We
show in the Figure 11, an ordinary bottom-supply
faucet 33, and in the Figure 12, a top-supply
faucet 34. When the bottom-supply faucet is
used the water pipes 35, come up through the
shelf 19, just back of the rear tray wall 28, at
about where the partition 30, joins the said wall.
When the top-supply faucet 34, is used the ?xture
is clamped to the back wall 23, by means of the
brackets 36, and set-screws 3'1.

In order for one shelf I9, to accommodate either
style of plumbing ?xture the platform 2|, con
tains‘optional knock-outs 38, and 39. The round
knock-outs 38, will take the pipes 35, and the 45
oblong knock-outs 39, will take the rear arm of
the brackets 36. This construction further helps
to hold the shelf 19, ?rmly to the tray 29.
Ordinarily laundry trays are installed near a
wall. When this is the case the shelf I9, is at- 50
tached to the wall 49, by means of the screws 4|,
as shown in Figure 7, and to simplify attach
ment to the wall we provide the back section 24,
with slots 42. Occasionally laundry trays are in
stalled back to back, away from room walls, and 55

when such is the case the shelves [9, can be
ganged or attached together by simply using
ordinary nuts and bolts 43 and 44, respectively
through the slots 42, as illustrated in the Figure 8.
It will now be clear that we have provided a
shelf of the character described which will ac
complish the objects of the invention hereinbefore
stated. It is to be understood that the embodi
ment of the invention herein disclosed is. merely
10 illustrative and is not to be considered in a ‘limit
ing sense as various changes may be made with
out departing from the spirit of our invention.
It is, therefore, understood that the device may
be modi?ed to accommodate laundry trays of any
number of parts. It is, therefore, further to be
understood that the invention is to be limited
only in accordance with the scope of the ap
pended claims.

We claim:
1. A laundry tray shelf of sheet metal, com
prising, a rectangular horizontal platform, and
vertical front, back and side sections extending
downwardly from the said platform, portions of
the side sections bent inwardly under the plat
form at two adjacent corners and made parallel
to the front and back sections, the inwardly bent
portions of the side sections being resilient and ‘
forming in combination with the said front sec
tion, a pair of clamps.
2. A laundry tray shelf of sheet metal, com
prising, a rectangular horizontal platform hav
ing edges, an upstanding bead extending around
the back and side edges of the said platform, and
vertical front, back and side sections extending
downwardly from the said platform, portions of
the side sections bent inwardly under the plat
form at two adjacent corners and made parallel 15
to the front and back sections, the inwardly bent
portions of the side sections being resilient ‘and
forming in combination with the said front sec
tion, a pair of clamps.
