GASKET HARDWARE
Raymond Larson, Chicago, Ill., assignor to Cen
tral Metallic Casket Co., Chicago, Ill., a corpo
ration of Illinois
Application December 12, 1936, Serial No. 115,553
2 Claims.
This invention relates generally to new and
useful improvements in casket hardware and has
particular reference to casket handles.
Among the objects of my invention is to pro
5 vide casket handles embodying novel features of
construction, combination and arrangement of
the parts and members thereof including rigid
and simplified structural elements affording the
production of such handles at a comparatively
l0 reduced cost of manufacture and facilitating the
assembly and installation thereof.
It is also an object of the invention to provide
a novel construction in the ornamental brackets
of a casket handle which shall aiford adequate
l5 structural rigidity and each of which brackets
shall include an outwardly disposed integral por
tion adapted to constitute a supporting abutment
arranged to receive and rigidly support an orna
mental handle bar.
20
Another object of the invention resides in the
construction `of a casket handle embodying novel
structural features in the ornamental brackets
therefor, which include a bar-supporting portion
formed integrally with and disposed outwardly
25 and downwardly from the base plate thereof; the
construction of such bar-supporting portion or
extension being adapted to receive means for se
curing the handle bar thereto and additional
means for rigidly securing the bracket to the
30 casket Wall; said brackets and bar-supporting
portions being adapted to structurally resist the
upward and outward movement of the han
dle bar during the carrying of the casket.
Figs. 1 to 6 inclusive, the metallic casket I5,
partly shown in Fig. l, has shown attached there- '5
on a casket handle embodying features of my
improved combination and structural design and
including a pair of brackets I6 having secured
thereto a handle bar I8.
.
It may be stated that the invention is not lim- l0
ite'd to a handle o1' any particular-ornamental or
artistic design since the construction or struc
tural features of the invention can readily be
applied by those skilled in the art to handles of
Various other artistic designs, nor do I wish to be L15
understood as limiting the invention to handles
of metallic caskets as obviously the handles em
bodying my invention may readily be applied to
caskets of Wood or other materials.
In the handle design shown in Figs. 1 to 6, in- 20
elusive, the bracket I6 consists of an elongated
laterally extending shell I6A having an ornate
exterior face I 6B and a rear marginal plane
aligned narrow face ISC deñning the general con
figuration of the shell and constituting a plane- 25
aligned base which is adapted to be attached to
the surface of a casket wall I5A by means of
bolts I9 which extend through the end portions
of the shell IGA, through the wall ISA and a re
inforcing bar I'I on the inner face of the Wall ISA. 30
In order to support the handle bar I8 the de
sired spaced distance from the side of the casket
wall, the bracket I6 is formed with an outwardly

shaped to conform to a generally outwardly and
downwardly curved body having an inner side or
face suitably curved to receive the bar I8 of cir
cular or other cross-section and thus resist any
generally outward or upward directional pull on
the handle bar when the casket is carried there
by. The particular cross-section shown in Fig. 4
is preferably formed as shown to accommodate
a bar of rectangular or square cross-section, and
10 in such design the depending end portion IGF
monly employed between the brackets and the
handle bars of the usual casket handles.
I claim:
1. A casket handle comprising a plurality of
spaced unitary brackets; a removably mounted 5
handle bar secured to and connecting said brack
ets; each of said brackets comprising a plate
portion having a front face and plane-aligned face
formations on the rear face thereof adapted to
engage the wall of the casket, an extension 10
is substantially disposed relatively right-angular
formed integrally with said plate portion, said
ly to the generally outwardly projected extension
ISD.
The outwardly extended portion IBD of the
extension being disposed to extend forwardly and
15 bracket is formed with a defining rear marginal
narrow face IGH plane-aligned with and merging
into the marginal face |60. Upon tightening of
the bolts I9 and 20 the bracket I6 will be securely
fastened with its marginal face formations I6C
20 and IGH to the side of the casket Wall.
The particular design of handle lbar I8 shown
for illustrative purposes consists of a tubular
shell I8A which is adapted to receive end caps or
closures I8B also of tubular shell form. A rein
forcing plug 2| of wood is fitted into the closure
IBB `to extend to the place of the support of the
handle bar on the bracket I6 and the plug 2l
is adapted to receive the threaded end of the
screw 22 which is projected through an opening
30 in the depending extension IGF and through the
shell portions |8A`and I8B to thus retain the
handle bar I8 against displacement from the
bracket by its own weight or any accidentally
applied pressure in the normal handling of the
casket.
In the modiñcation shown in Fig. '7 the bracket
I6 is provided with a pair of spaced integral ex
tensions ISD adapted to support the handle bar I8.
It will be noted that the designs and construc
tions presented herein obviate the use of all
fragile and costly hinges which are now com
downwardly of said front face and having a rear
wardly extending wall portion in plane-align
ment with said plate face formations, means for 15
securing the plate portion to the casket wall, a
bolt extending through the extension into secur»
ing engagement with the casket wall; said han
dle bar being mounted rearwardly of the down
wardly extending portions of said extensions and 20
below the forwardly extending portions thereof;
and means for securing the handle bar to each
of said bracket extensions.
2. A casket handle comprising a plurality of
spaced unitary brackets; a removably mounted
handle bar secured to and connecting said brack
ets; each of said brackets comprising a plate por
tion having a front face and plane-aligned face
formations on the rear face thereof adapted to
engage the wall of the casket, an extension
formed integrally with said plate portion, said
extension being disposed to extend forwardly and
downwardly of said front face and having a rear
wardly extending wall portion in plane-align
ment with said plate face formations, means for
securing the plate portion to the casket wall, said
handle bar being mounted rearwardly of the
downwardly extending portions of said extensions
and below the forwardly extending portions
thereof; and means for securing the handle bar 40
to each of said bracket extensions.
