This invention relates to a tie-back holding (Cl.V156-33)
device for window curtains or drapes.
towards the center of the window.
t
The principal object of this invention is to pro
vide a tie-back holding device formed of stiff
Wire and adjustably mounted on a supporting
bracket for attachment to a door or window
frame.
Another object of this invention relates to the
formation of the wire tie-back holding device as
10 a U-shaped element one arm of which is adjust
ably mounted on its supporting bracket and the
other arm of which is provided with a plurality
of parallel sections arranged to slidably receive
an ornamental element.

A further object of the invention relates to the
manner of detachably mounting such an orna
mental element to the tie-back holder whereby
the same may be easily and quickly replaced by
an ornamental element of a diiferent character.
A still further object of the invention relates to
the construction of the ornamental element.
Other objects and advantages of the invention
relate to various improved details of construc
tion and novel arrangements of the parts as will
25 be more fully set forth in the detail-ed descrip
tion to follow:
Referring to the drawing:
Fig. >1 is a front elevational view of the tie-back
holding device without its ornamental design,

of sheet metal provided along' its outside edge ’5'
With a rearwardly directed right-angle flange I9
adapted'to engage the outside edge 20- of _the
window frame II. A screw 2|, securely attaches
the bracket Il to the window frame II. To se
curely lock the eye I5 of the rear arm I3 tothe `10,
bracket I'I, there is provided a washer element
22 and nut 23 on- the threaded stud I 6. It will
thus be seen that this construction provides for
a ready angular adjustment of the tie-back hold
ing device I0 on its supporting bracket I'I rela- i3 Y I
tive to the _window frame II.

Arranged on'the front arm I4 and inthe same
vertical plane therewith are the ñngers or'sec
tions 24 and 25 form-ed ofthe same stiff wire as
used in the arms I3 and I 4.. The sections 24 and
25 may constitute the armsofl a U-shaped ele
ment, the bowed portion 26 of which is welded or
otherwise secured to the main front arm I4 as
at 21, in such a manner as to equally space the
sections 24 and 25 from the main front arm I4. 25
Preferablythe ends of the sections 24 and. 25
terminate in vertical registry with. the end of the
main front arm I4, as clearly shown in Figs,
1 and 4.

Adapted for attachment to the front arm I4 is 30
an ornamental element 30 which may be of any ‘
desired size, shape, color and configuration and
which may also be of any desired metallic or non

Carrying the threaded stud I6,- as abovemen
tioned, is a supporting bracket I1 which is formed

Y
In the embodiment of the invention illustrated
metallic material. Preferably I contemplatey
forming the ornamental element 30 of a plastic' 35
material, and embedded in the back thereof are
the eyelets 3|, one for each of the sections 24 and
25, and one for the main front arm I4. Refer
ring to Fig. 4, it will be seen that the eyelets 3|
are arranged at each of the ends of the orna
herewith, IIJv generally denotes the tie-back hold
mental element 30. IWhile only three eyelets 3|
ing device shown attached to a side of a window
frame II on which is hung a curtain or drape I2
are shown, it is to be understood that any desired
number may be utilized in any desired arrange
ment.
The ornamental element 30 is attached to the 45
45 shown in dotted lines.
'I'he tie-back holding device is preferably
formed of a stiif wire bent U-shaped to define a
rear arm I3 and a front arm I4, which may be
made of a length slightly in excess of the length
50 of the rear arm.
The free end of the rear arm
I3 terminates in an eye I5 arranged to be mount
ed on the threaded stud I 6 projecting from a
supporting bracket I 'I. As will be observed, the
front and rear arms I3 and I4 are parallel and
55 are disposed in a horizontal plane with the curved
tie-back holding device I Il by the simple` expedient
of sliding the sections 24 and 25 and front arm I4
through the appropriate eyelets 3|. The size of
the ornamental element should be such as to
completely hide from view the arm I4 and the
sections 24 and 25.
I
When the assembled unit is attached to a win
dow or door frame the curtain or drape is held
back by simply placing the same between the
