The handle it passes between the arms of ‘the
fork “0 and is pivotally held connected thereto
by a pintle 20. The inn°er end of the handle is
pivota-lly connected with a link 2|, which in turn 50
is pivotally connected with a fork shaped bracket
22 mounted on the rear end of the member 13.
The operation of the device is as follows:
An operator hold: the outer end of the handle
By this handle he is capable of pivoting 5g ’
2,120,921
the device to the right or left as indicated by the
dot and dash lines in Fig. 2. In all horizontally
pivoted positions the operator is capable of mov
ing the member l3 inwards or outwards to various
extended positions also indicated by dot and dash
lines in Fig. 2. The device is operated merely by
wards so that the serrations 28 engage the bear
ing 34 and hold the arm l2“ against swivelling.
It is only possible to swivel the arm I!“ when the
handle I6 is free. Then the handle may be
gripped and moved to the right or left.
An important feature of the invention resides
reciprocating the handle i6 upwards and down
in the fact that the handle l6 0! each of the var
wards which forces the cleansing member l4 cor
ious forms is ?exibly connected at its rear end
respondingly to engage against clothes in a tub
with the member l3. Therefore, in all positions

ing agents, and the clothes to be washed.
In Figs. 8-11 inclusive another embodiment of
the invention has been disclosed which distin
guishes from the prior form merely in the bracket
15 for supporting the arm I2. According to this form
of the invention there is a transverse support bar
and brackets there will be the same mechanical
26 having a rectangular shaped fiat portion 25‘1 at
its center. At its ends it is provided with vertical
rod portions 25*’. These rod portions are adapted
20 to slidably engage a pair of spaced clamps 26
which are attached upon support elements 21
adapted to be mounted over the top edge portions
of the tub 24. The clamps 26 are provided with
screws 28 by which they may be manipulated to
25 hold the bar '25 in raised or lowered positions.
The supporting members 21 are adapted to hold
the bar 25 transversely of the tub, as clearly
shown in Figs. 8 and 9. The inner end of the
arm I2 is swivelly mounted horizontally in the
30 frame portion 25“. In other respects this form of
the invention is similar to the previous form and
similar parts may be identi?ed by corresponding
reference numerals.
,
In Figs. 12 to 14 inclusive another embodiment
35 of the invention has been disclosed in which a
means is provided for holding the arm i2“
against swivelling when pressure is applied on the
handle I6. This means consists in the provision
of a bolt 22“ connected at its top end with the
fork member 22'. ' This bolt 22a extends through
a slot 30 formed in the arm I28“. The bolt 22a
has a head 22“ the inner face of which is ser
rated. This bolt engages through an opening 3|
formed in the bottom portion of the member I3.
The bolt 22a is normally loose so that when the
handle i6 is gripped and pulled forwards or
pushed rearwards the member I3 will merely slide
on the arm l2“.

cleansing element ll.
While I have illustrated and described the pre
ferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be 15
understood that I do not limit myself to the pre
cise constructions herein disclosed and the right
is reserved to all changes and modi?cations com
ing within the scope of the invention as de?ned
20
in the appended claims.
