CLOTHESLINE HOLDER,
Frank L. McConnell‘, Spring?eld, Ill.
Application July 27. 1935, Serial No. 33,518,
3 Claims. } (01. 24-133)
My invention relates to rope hangers in general
and supports for one end of a-rope extending from
one place to another and relates particularly to
clothesline hangers; an object being in my device
5 to provide a support for clothesline ropes which
will hold the clothesline securely with an easy
means of taking up the slack therein and a
clothesline holder that will be quickly detachable
_ from its position of support, convenient to ma
lolnipulate as well as economical to manufacture
and sell at a reasonable price.
A particular purpose of my invention is to pro
vide a rope holder and especially a clothesline
holder which within the scope of my invention
15'' may be made in several forms to accomplish the
same or different purposes and especially made in
a form which will permit a rope supported there
by to be suspended in almost any direction and
in some forms of my invention any direction
20 from my supporting device as the center of sup
port for that end of the rope.
In the meantime, I propose to provide in such
an invention a rope supporting device for its sev
eral adaptations which in its respective forms are
as attractive in appearance; are economical to man
ufacture and sell; are convenient to handle and
practical to use.
I attain the objects of my invention by the
device described in the annexed speci?cation, re
cited in the claims and illustrated in the accom
panying drawings in which like reference numer
als indicate like parts in the several ?gures.
Referring to the drawings:

C14'5 my invention wherein the semi-circular form of
the supporting bracket makes it possible to sup
port a rope or clothesline in any direction within
a semi-circle from its point of support.
Fig. 2 is a perspective of that form of my in
110 vention wherein the supporting bracket is shaped
to de?ne a rectangular channel while the rope
holding channel plate detachably connected
therewith is shaped to hold the rope supported
thereby in only one direction and that is straight
45 out from the supporting bracket.
Fig. 3 is a perspective of one of those forms of
my invention wherein the supporting bracket
holding the rope supporting channel plate is
shaped to de?ne an upright channel with a trans
50" verse slot through which a-pair of hook members
of the channel plate extend for the support of
the rope.
_
Fig. 4 is a side elevation of a semi-circular
bracket such as is shown in Fig. 1 with arslot
55 v‘therein intermediate the top and bottom edges
'
thereof for the detachable support of a rope hold
ing channel plate such as the one shown in Fig. 3.
Fig. 5 is a front view of ‘that form of device of
my invention shown in Fig. 4.
Fig. 6 is a perspective of that form of my in- 5
vention wherein the rope supporting channel
plate is held within the walls of the upright rec
tangular supporting bracket in whichform the
rope when held in place is supported within the
walls of the supporting bracket and pressed 10
against the inner rear face thereof.
Fig. 7 is a perspective of that form of‘ my in
vention wherein the curved supporting bracket
is shaped to de?ne a loop amounting to more
than a half circle andfrom which a rope may be. 15
supported in any direction within the scope of
this loop.
Fig. 3 is a side elevation of that form of my
invention as shown in Fig. '7 but which has an
intermediate slot ‘for the detachable support of 20
the rope holding channel plate which is shown
in Fig. 3 and Fig. 4.
'
Fig. 9 is a perspective of that form of my de
vice wherein the supporting bracket is shaped to
de?ne an upright cylindrical support adapted to 25
be secured to the top of a supporting post there
for and from which a rope may be held by a rope
holding channel plate shown in the form indi
cated in Fig. 1 in any direction about the sup
porting bracket.
30
Fig. 10 is a perspective of the form of support
ing bracket shown in Fig. 9 but supported on
a side Wall.
.
Fig. 11 is a perspective similar to Fig. 9 with the
one exception that in this ?gure the upright cy- 35
lindrical bracket is provided with an intermediate
slot between its top and bottom edges for the sup
port of that type of rope holding channel plate
illustrated in Figures 4 and 8.
'
Figure 12 is a ?gure similar to Figure 10 but .40
showing
my
upright
cylindrical
supporting
bracket provided with a bracket adapted to sup-.
port the same on a side wall.
'
Referring in detail to the design and construc
tion of the several forms of my invention and 45
the advantages provided in each, I shall clearly‘
and concisely set forth the merits of these forms,
all of which fall within the scope of my invention. '
For instance, attention is directed to that form
of my invention, disclosed in Fig. 1 wherein a
channel plate I is provided with a pair of hook
members 2 to hook over the edge of the semi
circular bracket 3 while at thebottom of this
channel plate there is a pair of guard ?ngers 4 55
2..
2,133,936
adapted to prevent undesired removal of plate I
from bracket 3.
When a strain is exerted on rope 5 hanging
over the top 6 of plate I with a weight on this
rope forcing the strain in the direction indicated
by the arrow in Fig. 1 the tendency is for the bot
tom end ‘I of plate I to squeeze this rope up
against the outer surface of bracket 3 which re
sults in holding the rope ?rmly and substan
10 tially; and in fact in this situation involving the
?rst class leverage system the harder the strain
on rope 5 the harder will be the squeeze or pres
sure against that part of the rope in channel I
between the lower end 1 thereof and bracket 3.
It will be noted that the semi-circular shape
15
of bracket 3 will permit channel plate I to be
hooked over bracket 3 any place on the semi
circle so that rope 5 may swing radially in any
direction within the semi-circle; thus providing
20 a convenience that is always desirable especially
in a clothesline .adaptation of my invention.
Bracket 3 is shown in Fig. 1 to be secured by
bolts or screws 8 to a side wall 9.
In another modi?cation of my invention I have
KC GI shown in Fig. 2 that form thereof in which chan
nel plate I hooks over the front surface III of
supporting bracket I! with hook members 2 and
guard ?ngers 4 serving the same purpose as is
shown in Fig. 1.
30
In Fig. 4 I have shown a semi-circular bracket
I2 corresponding in shape with bracket 3 and as
a modi?cation of bracket 3, I have provided in
bracket l2 an intermediate slot I3 for the de
tachable support of a channel plate I4 having a
35 pair of upturned hook members I5 engaging the
upper portion I6 of bracket I2 after they are in
serted in the slot I3.
For this instance, rope 5 extending through
channel plate I4 with the strain or weight pull
40; ing outwardly on the top of plate I4 will cause
an inward pressure of the bottom end H of plate
It will be also noted that in Fig. 8 there is pro
vided a slotted modi?cation of the bracket shown
in Fig. '7 similar to the modi?cation of that
bracket illustrated in Fig. 1 where it is shown
modi?ed in Fig. 4 wherein the slot I3 with chan
nel plate I4 holding the rope is disposed.
I have chosen in this application to further
disclose two other modi?cations of my invention
and in this connection attention is directed, ?rst
to Fig. 9 where bracket 29 is made in the form
of an upright cylindrical member adapted to be
supported upon a post 30 so that the rope sup
porting channel bracket I may be detachably
hooked upon bracket 29 as shown in this ?gure
so that rope 5 may extend in any direction from 15
its point of support. In Fig. 10 I have illus
trated a supporting bracket 3| similar to bracket
29 in all respects except its manner of support;
and in this case -I support this bracket on the
side of a post or wall by a side bracket 32.
20
In Fig. 11 I am illustrating a modi?cation of
bracket 29 wherein a slot 33 is used for the de
tachable support of channel plate I4 engaging the
same in the manner illustrated for the support
of rope 5 while in Fig. 12 bracket 34 has a slot 25
35 operating in a similar manner. In this modi
?cation however of my invention bracket 34 is
provided with a side bracket 36 adapted to sup
port the same on the side of a post or wall.
Having thus described the nature of my in
vention what I claim is:
1. A rope hanger comprising in cooperative
combination, a bracket shaped to de?ne a sup
port, and a channel plate hooked over the bracket
for the support of a rope and also shaped to de 35
?ne a pair of spaced downwardly extending in
tegral hanger hooks disposed intermediate the
top and bottom of the channel plate, the sides of
said plate deformed to de?ne a central channel
for the support of said rope; said sides also 40
shaped to de?ne a pair of bottom guard ?ngers
I4 against this rope squeezing it against the outer
respectively registering snugly under said hanger
surface of the lower portion I8 of bracket I2.
hooks and in spaced relation thereto respective
ly in the same plane therewith and respectively
I show a front view of this modi?cation of my
invention in Fig. 5 while in Fig. 3 I disclose in
disposed at right angles to the position of the 45
through a front slot 20 by a channel plate I4
with hook members I5 of the channel plate hold
hangers to provide stop means preventing un
warranted removal of said channel plate from
said bracket by any vertical lift of the channel
plate; said rope adapted to be supported within
ing the same in the same manner as is shown in
said channel of the channel plate.
" perspective that form of my invention wherein
the vupright rectangular bracket I9 is engaged
Fig. 4.
I also show in Fig. 6 an upright channeled sup
porting bracket 2I having front support mem
bers 22 for the detachable engagement of the
_- rope supporting channel plate 23 in which ar
rangement a rope vor a clothesline supported
thereby will exert an outward strain against the
top- end 24 of plate 23 with a resulting inward
pressure between the bottom end 25 of plate 23
60 and the bottom end of bracket 2| on the rope
held thereby.
It will be noted that in Fig. '7 I provide a
bracket 26 shaped to de?ne a support that is
greater than a half circle and as will be ob
65 served in this ?gure the rope holding channel
plates I are attached in the manner shown in
Fig. l with the additional advantage in this case
providing a chance to mount these rope holding
plates anywhere about bracket 26 so that the
rope may extend therefrom in any direction with
in the limits of the curved portion of bracket
26. Thus this bracket may be supported upon
the side of a post or wall by a screw or bolt se
cured thereto through holes 21 holding exten
;sion arms 28 for its support.
30
2. A rope hanger comprising in cooperative 50
combination a metallic supporting bracket shaped
to de?ne an approximate half circular horizontal
arc, adapted to be disposed in a horizontal posi
tion, a channel plate having a pair of integral 55
downwardly disposed hooks detachably supported
over the periphery of said supporting bracket,
said plate shaped to de?ne a pair of parallel gen
erally upright side plates forming a generally
upright, curved channel and a rope operatively 60
supported therein; and said side plates also re
s-pectively shaped to de?ne each a pair of inte
gral base guard ?ngers in the same plane with
said downwardly disposed hooks, spaced there
from and disposed at right angles to the position 65
of said hooks and registering beneath said sup
porting bracket and adapted to guard against
unwarranted removal of the channel plate from
said supporting bracket by a vertical lift of said
plate.
3. A rope line hanger comprising in coopera 70
tive combination, a horizontally disposed curved
supportirg bracket, a detachable channel plate
shaped to de?ne a pair of integral, parallel, gen
erally upright side plates with a' rope supporting 75
2,188,936
channel between them and shaped to further de
?ne a pair of integral, intermediate, downwardly
extending hanger hooks adapted to hang over the
top periphery of said supporting bracket; and
said side plates each respectively shaped at their
bottom ends to de?ne in the same plane with
said hanger hooks, a pair of guard ?ngers in the
same plane with said downwardly disposed hooks,
3
spaced therefrom and disposed at right angles
to the position of said hooks and registering be
neath said supporting bracket and adapted to
guard against unwarranted removal of the chan
nel plate from said supporting bracket by a. ver
tical lift of said plate.
