This invention relates to eaves trough hangers
sive device of this character which may be quick
5 ly and conveniently secured to a building beneath
the eaves of the roof and by means of which a
trough or gutter may be securely held in position
without the employment of nails-wires and sim
ilar fastening devices.
A further object of the inventionfis to Provide
an eaves trough hanger comprising coacting
hanger members, one of which is detachably se
cured to and adjustable vertically of a support
ing bracket and the other provided with means
15 for gripping and supporting an eaves trough.
A further object is to provide the upper hanger
member with means for automatically grippingv
the supporting bracket and the lower hanger
member with means for detachable engagement
means of which the brackets may be secured to
the building.- Each bracket is provided vwith a 5
depending standard l0‘ having one face thereof ‘
grooved and formed with spaced transverse per
forations ii for the purpose hereinafter re
ferred .to.
The hanger proper consists of upper and lower 10
hanger members l2 and i3, between which is sup
ported the eaves trough or gutter, indicated at I4.
The upper hanger member I2 is preferably an
gular in cross section, thereby de?ning a hori
zontal ?ange l5 and a vertical reinforcing web 15

downwardly to form a depending extension ll
having a slot i8 therein, asshown. The inner
end’of the vertical web i6 terminates in a hook
as with the adjacent end of the upper member and . _ iii, the bill of which is adapted to embrace the 20 .
said supporting bracket respectively.
A further object is to provide means for tem
porarily supporting a trough or gutter in proper
position beneath the eaves of a roof preparatory
25 to applying the permanent hangers thereto.
A still further object of the invention is gen
erally to improve this class of devices so as to
