into alinement in pairs and studs 36 extend the desired position. After the mop has been
placed between'the plates the operator will swing

and one of the projections 35h will engage -bar 35
in one of the recesses 35h and said bar will be
swung to the left with the mop stick. This move
ment swings levers 28 and the toggle formed by
the same and members 3l is straightened. This
causes arms 26 and plate 29 to be swung toward
3
in Figs. 13 and 16 and have riveted thereto a
plate 62. Plate 62 as shown has ribs 62a struck
up therein and this plate extends substantially to
the lower parallel portions of bars 59. A plate
63 is provided, extending between side plates 55a,
which plate has secured thereto bars 5t extending
along the inner sides of side plates 55a and
pivoted thereto respectively by the rivets or bolt
pivots 55. Bars 66 extend slightly above the top
plates 22 and 24 and the mop is squeezed between
these plates. The water squeezed from the mop
will pass through holes 21j and around the sides
of the horizontal portion of plate 22, said water of plate 53 and are pivoted at their upper ends 10
thus draining back in the pail. The mop stick ' to the outer sides of the lower parallel portions
can then be swung to the right as shown in Figs.

said pin will be broken and there will be no dam
is preferably covered with a layer G9 of some’ soft
age to the mop or apparatus. ' Pin 32 can be
placed in different sets of the holes 35a so that
20 different breaking pressures may be had.
In the operation of the structure shown in Figs.
8 to 10 and 17 and 18 the plate L33 will be ad
justed according to the weight or size of the mop.
If the mop is a heavy or large one said plate will
be placed in its lowest position.
In this structure
the plates are held in separated position by
springs 4l. The operator places the mopïdown
wardly between plates ¿l5 and lli’. and then swings
the mop stick to the left as shown in Fig. 8. The
30 mop stick engages in material 53 in bar 52 and
bar 5D together with levers 28 are swung to the
left. This straightens the toggle and plate 52 is
moved toward plate ¿l5 so that the mop is squeezed
between
said
plates.
The
water ~ can
drain
through slots ¿3c as well as through slots 55a.
When the pressure is relieved on the mop stick
springs lll will separate the plates and the mop
can be removed.
In Figs. 11 to 16 a pail 2D is shown and a frame
40 member 55 is illustrated having side plates 55a
with slots 55h therein forming tongues or hooks
55e. The side members 55a can thus be disposed
on the side or partition 2Go, the latter extending
into slots 55h and the tongues 55o being disposed
at one side of said side or partition while the
main portion of side plates 55a have their edges
extending along the other side oi said side or par
tition. Plates 55a are shown as having a project
ing portion 55d at their lower ends engaging
said side or partition 25a. Side plates 55a have
holes 55j extending therethrough. Frame 55 has
a portion 55e of plate-like form, extending be
tween side plates 55a, which side plates extend
in parallel relation adjacent the sides of the pail
20. Plate 55e extends downwardly into pail 20
extending outwardly at a greater angle adjacent
its upper end and at its lower portion extending
substantially horizontally and to a point slightly
beyond the plane of the vertical edges of side
60 portions 55a. The side plates 55a adjacent one
upper corner have a plurality of holes 55g there
through and small headed and nutted bolts 55
are provided adapted to extend therethrough
and through one end of a pair of links 51. The
other ends of links 5l' are pivotally connected by
rivet pivots 58 to the ends of bars 59, having
their lower ends extending in parallel relation and
other portions 59a converging and then extend
ing in parallel relation along opposite sides re
spectively of a bar 55 extending above the frame
55. The parallel portions 59a have elongated slots
59h formed therein, and headed and nuttedbolts
or yielding material such as leather.
As shown
in Fig. 1li, the side of block 5l adjacent bar 6i! is
formed on a convex curve about a horizontal axis. 20
It will be noted that the upper end of bar 55 is
bent at right angles as shown in Figs. 11 and 12,
as well as being offset laterally. A compression
coil spring 58 surrounds bar 55, bearing at one
end against the out-turned portion of bar 55 and 25
at its other end against the top of plate 52. This
spring normally holds bar Sil in position with the
nuts 6I substantially midway of the slots 55h.
In operation, when the mop is to be squeezed,
it is placed between the plates 63 and 55e in the 30
position which they occupy in Fig. l1. The
operator then places the mop stick ¿l2 in the
groove in the block 61 as indicated in dotted lines
in Figs. 11 to 14 and swings the mop stick to the
left as shown in Fig. 1l. This movement swings 35
plate 53 about the pivot 55 and said plate ap
proaches plate 55e. The mop is squeezed between
these plates and the water therefrom runs down
ward under plate 53 into the pail as well as
through the holes 55]“ into the pail. It will be 40
noted that as the mop stick @l2 and bar 5U are
swung to the left, the lower portions of bars 59
and the links 5l act to form a toggle which is
being straightened. There is an increasing lever- »
age, therefore, on the plate 53 as it approaches 45
plate 55e. After the mop is thus squeezed be
tween plates 53 and 55e, the operator can swing
the mop stick again to the right and quickly move
the same from engagement with block 51. The
mop stick ¿i2 is held in proper engagement with 50
the block 15's' and need engage only a small por
tion of the surface of the soft or yielding member
69. Said member 5l can move vertically upward
ly or downwardly within the limit of travel of
plate El in the slots 5919. Should it be moved 55
downwardly, it will be returned to normal position
by the spring ES and if moved upwardly, will re
turn to normal position by gravity. It will be
noted that the increased angle of the flare on
plate 55e accommodates the movement of the 60
mop as the plates come to mop squeezing position.
From the above description it is seen that ap
plicant has provided a simple and yet very effi
cient structure of mop squeezing apparatus. It
will be seen that the pressure on the mop in 65
creases as the mop stick is swung to the left as
described. An easy and convenient arrangement
is had for exerting the desired pressure on the
mop. It will also be seen that by moving mem
ber 35 thatmore or less leverage is obtained in 70
moving or swinging bar 35. The apparatus is
adapted to be removably supported in a pail as
6| pass respectively through these slots and
shown, or it may be permanently secured in a
through the bar 55. The parallel parts of the
pail. The parts are comparatively few in number
and can be strongly and ruggedly made. It. is 75
portions 59a are of angular formation as shown
4
obvious that the device will have a high degree of
utility for the purpose intended.
