Louis M. Lohberg, Clinton, Iowa, assignor to Un
dertakers Supply Company, Chicago, Ill.
Application January 21, 1937, Serial No. 121,650
7 Claims.
The present invention relates to new and useful
improvements in casket supports and has for its
primary object to provide, in a manner as here
inafter set forth, a device of this character which
5 is particularly adapted to receive and support a
casket over an open grave.
Another very important object of the invention
is to provide a support of the aforementioned
character embodying a novel construction and
10 arrangement through the medium of which the
casket may be lowered with safety and which is
adapted to be used with or without a conventional
lowering machine.
Still another very important object of the
invention is to provide a casket support of the
character described comprising a plurality of
unison. The gears B are enclosed in the end posts
I at this end of the device. The reference
numeral 'I designates a hand operating crank
which is fixed on one end of the shaft 5 which
carries the worm gears 6.
As best seen in Figures 1 and 2 of the drawings,
the shafts ¿l extend through and project beyond
the posts I at the operating end of the device.
Mounted on the shafts 4 at longitudinally spaced
points are arms 8. The arms 8 include polygonal
4. Set screws l0 are provided for securing the
arms 8 in position on the shafts 4. The reference
numeral II designates brackets which are piv
otally mounted, as at I2, for rocking adjustment
on the free end portions of the arms 8.
brackets II include substantially U-shaped por
tions I3 in which rubber rollers- I4 are journaled.
Projecting laterally from the arms 8 are in
tegral lugs I5 in which stop screws I5 are
threadedly mounted for adjustment. Lock nuts
Il are provided for the screws I6. Projecting
from the pivoted ends of the brackets II are in~
corresponding parts throughout the several views,
Figure 1 is a View in top plan of an embodiment
of the invention.
Figure 2 is a view in side elevation thereof.
Figure 3 is an end elevational view.
35
Figure 4 is a cross sectional view through one
side of the invention, taken substantially on the
line 4_4 of Figure 1.
Referring now to the drawings in detail, it will
40 be seen that the embodiment of the invention
which has been illustrated comprises a plurality
of tubular metallic corner posts I of suitable diam
eter and height, said posts including bases 2 and
heads 3. J ournaled in the posts I and extending
45 therethrough, adjacent the upper ends thereof,
are sectional side shafts 4 of polygonal cross
section. Also journaled in the upper portions of
the posts I are sectional end shafts 5 which
are also of polygonal cross section. If desired,
50 the sections comprising the shafts 4 and 5 may be
telescopic to facilitate adjustment of the device
for the accommodation of various sizes of caskets.
Meshed worm gears 6 are ñxed on one end por
tion of the shafts 4 and on one of the shafts 5 for
55 rotating the shafts 4 in opposite directions in

Other objects of the invention are to provide
a casket support of the character set forth which
will be comparatively simple in construction,
strong, durable, highly efñcient and reliable in
use, compact, light in weight and which may be
manufactured at low cost.

All of the foregoing and still further objects and
advantages of the invention will become apparent
from a study of the following specification, taken
in connection with the accompanying drawings
wherein like characters of reference designate
30
(Cl. 27-26)
tegral lingers I8 which are engageable with the
screws I6 for limiting the rocking movement of
said brackets in one direction.
The reference
numeral I9 designates stop bars which are ñxed
on one end portion of the shafts 4 for preventing
the casket from rolling beyond this end of the de

vice.
It is thought that the operation of the inven
tion will be readily apparent from a consideration
of the foregoing. The device is positioned over
the grave with the rollers I4 in raised position,
substantially as shown in the drawings. A casket 35
may now be conveniently mounted on the support
from one end thereof with a minimum of effort,
said casket traveling over the rollers I4 until
arrested by the stop bars I9 on the other end of
the device. The worm gears 6 will support the
casket in any position, no other locking means
being necessary.
To lower the casket it is, of
course, only necessary to actuate the hand crank
1, thus rotating the shafts 4 in opposite directions
for swinging the rollers i4 downwardly. The
rockable mountings of the brackets I I will permit
the rollers I4 to readily adjust themselves as
may be necessary during and after the mounting
of the casket on the device. The casket must, of
course, be positioned within the area defined by 50
the shafts 4 and 5 in order to clear the latter when
said casket is lowered.
It is believed that the many advantages of a
casket support constructed in accordance with
the present invention will be readily understood, 55

and although a preferred embodiment of the de
arms ñxed to each shaft and positioned to ex
vice is as illustrated and described, it is to be

ing position, brackets pivoted on said arms and
having roller supports extending above the arms
understood that changes in the details of con
struction and in the combination and arrange
ment of parts may be resorted to which will fall
within the scope of the invention as claimed.
What is claimed is:
