3 Claims. (Cl. 306-1)
My invention relates to a detachable handle
with a connecting plate and a movable end piece
adapted for holding a mop, a brush, or other ar
ticles, this being of a type in which the movable
5 end piece and end plate on the handle form jaws
in which articles above described maybe se
An object and feature of my inventionis there
fore in the construction of a handle with an end
10 plate extending at an angle to the axis of the
handle, such end plate having serrations to fa
cilitate grasping a mop, this forming one jaw,
the outside jaw being formed by an end piece,
vpreferably a bent rod or wire, which is slidably
~ mounted relative to the end plate and drawn to
ward the end plate by a spring acting through a
I collar to which the end member is attached.
My invention is illustrated in the accompany
ing drawing, in which:
Fig. 1 is an elevation of my invention used as
a mop.
Fig. 2 is a perspective view showing the end jaw
spaced from the end plate.
Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section substantially
25 transverse to Fig. 2 and on the section line 3-3.
bulges 23.
The upper portion 24 adjacent the
upper edge has a steeper bevel or slope than the
section I5 of the plate and is provided with a
series of serrations 25. The top face I5 of the
plate is provided with a pair of perforations 26.
The outer jaw member 30 is preferably formed
of a wire rod of sti? metal having two longitudinal
arms 3|, these being parallel and extending
through the perforations 2B of the jaw plate I3.
Each of these has an inwardly turned lower end 10
32 engaging in a socket 33 in a collar 34 slidably
mounted on the handle I I. A coiled compression
spring 35 bears against this collar which forms a
handle and engages the lower edge of the plate
adjacent the curved section I‘! and the end 36 of 15
the bolt. Each of the arms I3 has an acute angle
bend 31, these bends being similar. The outer
portion of the jaw has a U-shaped end 38 with
side members 39 extending from the angle 31 to
the cross member 40, this cross member being 20
adapted to engage the plate I3 adjacent the edge
portion 24 as shown in Fig. 3 when no mop, brush,
or other article is held between the two jaws.
When it is desired to grasp a mop by the jaws
these are spread apart as shown in Fig. 2 by 25
Fig. 4 is a section of the end plate taken on
the line 4-4 of Fig. 2 or 3 in the direction of the
pressing the handle collar 34 toward the‘plate,
the ?xed jaw formed by the plate and. the mov
able outer jaw formed by the bent wire. The 30
Fig. 5' is a plan of the end plate taken in the
30 direction of the arrow 5 with the end jaw re
moved, omitting the sliding collar, and
Fig. 6 is a perspective view of my invention used
in holding a brush.
In the drawing the mop handle II is illustrated
as having a beveled end I2. The ?xed jaw des
ignated I3 is formed of an end plate I4. This
has a ?at middle section I5 conforming to the
bevel I2 of the end of the handle and ?tting there
against. This portion is therefore on a bevel. A
?ange part I6 is parallel to the axis of the handle
and has a slightly rounded. portion IT to conform
to the cylindrical shape of the handle, the end
plate being secured by a bolt I8 passed through
this rounded section.v Thus, considering the han
45 dle to be vertical, the bottom edge I9 forms a con
vex curve, the lower part of which is at the bot
tom of the rounded section H.
A pair of outwardly pressed bulges 20 are lo
cated contiguous to the edge I9 on an opposite
50 side of the pressed-out circular section I‘! and
terminated slightly below the angular bend 2I.
Above this bend the portion I5, as above men
tioned, forms a bevel. The side edges 22 have a
convex curve diverging outwardly and adjacent
thereby compressing the spring 35 so that the
bunched section 45 of a mop 46 is held between
mop may be made of cords, rags or similar mate
My invention may be used with a brush, for
instance as illustrated in Fig. 6, in which the
brush back 50 has an upstanding plate 5I at- 35
tached thereto, one or more nails or the like be
ing satisfactory. With my invention it is desirable
that the edge of the brush back 52 be slightly
concave so that the cross member 4'0 of the U
shaped member 38 of the outer jaw member can 40
engage this outer edge, the upstanding plate 5|.
Various changes may be made in the details of
the construction without departing from the
spirit or scope of the invention as de?ned by the
I claim:

of the plate having a gripping portion with a
straight edge provided with serrations, the edge

posite sides of the said bolt but offset to one side
of the handle, the said plate having a pair of per
