(Cl. 211-165)
This invention relates to display racks."
More particularly stated, the invention relates
to racks adapted for use in displaying articles,
such as ties or socks on the counters of stores
5 ‘ and to display packages for use therewith.
.
One of the objects of the invention ‘is to pro
vide a rack for the purpose speci?ed that will
occupy a minimum amount of space and will have
a maximum display capacity;
‘
Another object of the invention is to provide
a rack of the character described, so designed
that it can be shipped or stored “knockdown”,
but having its parts so relatively constructed and
arranged that they can be easily and quickly
Another object‘of the invention is to provide
a display rack having supporting arms so mount
ed that the article supported and displayed there'
on will be readily accessible and can be easily re

'
Another object of the invention is to provide
a rack of the character described so designed
that the parts are simple in construction and
can be economically manufactured.
Further objects of the invention will appear
tr:
arms.
Further details of the invention will appear
from the following description.
The display rack, as shown particularly in Fig.
'7, comprises a base 20 having a central post or
pedestal 2| extending upwardly therefrom, on
the upper end of which is rotatably mounted a
central supporting disk 22 having a downwardly
extending peripheral ?ange 23.
The disk 22 has formed therein a plurality of
radially disposed wedge shaped notches 25 which
are cut through the plane of the disk and down
wardly into the ?ange 23.

to expose to view articles supported on shorter
arms which are disposed within the peripheral

this application, and in which
Fig. 1 is a top plan view of a display rack
constructed in accordance with the invention;

Fig. 6 is an elevational View of one of the
peripheral supporting arms forming a part of
the rack;
Fig. '7 is a sectional elevation taken substan
tially on line '|—'l of Fig. 1; and
Fig. 8 is a sectional elevation taken at right
angles to Fig. l and substantially on line 8-8
thereof.
The invention brie?y described consists of a
display rack comprising a central support hav
50 ing detachably mounted thereon radially ex
tending arms, the outer ends of certain of the
arms being connected by pivoted arms to normally
form a polygonal rack. The peripheral arms
can be swung outwardly to permit the removal
55 therefrom of articles displayed thereon and also
_
A plurality of arms 26, such as that shown par
ticularly in Fig. 4, are mounted in certain of the
notches 25, each arm having an upwardly ex
tending end 21 at the free end thereof and hav
ing a wedge shaped lug 28 at the other end there 20
of. The lug 28 extends below the arm 26 to form
a shoulder 29 and has a tail 3!) projecting beyond
the free end thereof.
When the arms 26 are to be mounted on the
support 22 the wedge shaped lugs are positioned
in the wedge shaped openings 25 and the tail
32 extends beneath the lower-surface of the disk
22, as shown particularly in Fig. 8. It will be
noted in this ?gure that the shoulder 29 is posi
tioned in engagement with the inner peripheral 80
surface of the ?ange 23.
Intermediate the arms 26 are mounted longer
arms 35 and 36. These arms have lugs formed
on their inner ends exactly similar to the lugs 28
of the arms 26 and are mounted in the wedge 35
shaped notches 25 in the same manner as the
lugs 28.
‘
Certain of the arms, such as the arms 35, are
provided on their outer ends with lugs 31, the
upper surface 38 of each lug 3'! being disposed 40
substantially in the plane of the lower surface of
the arm 35.
Each lug 3'! has formed therein a
pair of holes 39 which form the pivot openings
for peripheral arms 40, shown in Fig. 6.
Each of the radial arms 36 has formed at its 45
outer end a pair of intercommunicating angu
larly disposed grooves 4|, 42 which receive the
ends of the arms 49 in the manner particularly
illustrated in Fig. l.
_
Each of the arms 40 has an angularly dis 50
posed end 43 which forms a pivot for the arm and
which is inserted in one of the holes 39.
It will be noted from the showing in Fig. 1
that the arms 35 and 36 are alternately arranged
around the support 22 and that a pair of arms 40
2
2,180,672
is mounted in the outer end of each of the arms
35, the free ends of these arms 4|] being seated
in the grooves 4|, 42 in the outer ends of the
arms 36.
The display rack may be used for displaying
any desired articles, but is particularly adapted
for displaying socks or ties packaged in the man
ner shown in dotted lines in Fig. 8. Each package
has a central cardboard supporting member, the
10 upper end of the supporting member having an
opening or hole through which the arm or rod 40
extends.
'
In use, a large number of ties or socks can be
mounted on the inner or short arms 26 and then
15 the ties or socks, which it is particularly desired
to display, are mounted on the outer or periperal
arms 43. These packages will hang on the rods
or arms freely and can be swung outwardly for
inspection and if it is desired to look at the
20 articles on the inner arms 26, the arm 40 in front
of this inner arm can be swung outwardly on its
pivot to give access thereto. When the purchaser
desires one of the ties on the rack the arm 4!}
can be swung outwardly and the package can be
readily removed therefrom. If desired, however,
the lower end of the package can be broken and
the article can be withdrawn from the support.
However, it is usually very much more satis
factory to remove the package in its entirety.
From the foregoing description it will be evi~
dent that a display rack can be shipped or stored
in “knockdown” condition in a very small space,
but can be readily put together without the use
of any tools or any particular skill.
Although one speci?c embodiment of the in
vention has been particularly shown and de
scribed it will be understood that the invention
is capable of modi?cation and that changes in
the construction and in the arrangement of the
various cooperating parts may be made without
departing from the spirit or scope of the inven
tion, as expressed in the following claims.
What I claim is:
1. A display rack comprising a central sup
porting disk having peripheral, radially disposed
notches, and a plurality of display supporting
5
arms having inner ends arranged to fit within
said notches, alternately arranged arms around
the periphery of the disk having lugs of appreci
able thickness thereon provided with vertical 10
bores therethrough for pivotally supporting arms
thereon, on vertical pivots for movement in a
horizontal plane and the intermediate arms hav
ing supports on the outer ends thereof for re
taining and supporting the free ends of said 15
pivoted arms.
2. A display rack comprising a central sup
porting disk and a plurality of arms extending
radially therefrom,,certain of said arms having
on the outer ends thereof lugs of appreciable 20
thickness, certain lugs having vertical bores
therethrough, arms having vertically disposed
pins pivoted in said bores and adapted to swing
in a horizontal plane, other radial arms having
lugs at the outer ends provided with surfaces 25
having means adapted to support and retain the
free ends of the pivoted arms.
3. A display rack comprising a central sup
porting disk and a plurality of arms extending
radially therefrom, certain of said arms having 30
on the outer ends thereof lugs of appreciable
thickness, having vertical bores therethrough,
arms having vertically disposed portions pivoted
in said vertical bores and adapted to swing in a
horizontal plane, other radial arms having lugs at 35
the outer ends provided with grooves adapted to
support the free ends of the pivoted arms and
prevent normal pivotal movement of said arms.
