This invention-relates to line holding devices, sumes a non-operating vertical position outside
particularly to types ?xed on window‘frames, of window.
These advantageous objects are accomplished
and having means movable through the window
by the novel construction, arrangements and
opening ‘into a convenient position for an oper
ator to attach articles to the line, or remove ar

One of the objects of the invention is to pro
vide a line supporting apparatus of simple con;
10 struction and light weight that can be operated
with’ a minimum of effortand exertion and’ that
will’beinconspicuous when same is in a non-op
‘ erating vertical position outside of the room.
_ Another object’ of theinvention is to provide
:15 an angular bracket, hinged to one edge of a metal
plate to which is rotatably mounted a metal disc
supporting av slidable bar, said bar having a
pulley'rotatably‘mounted on one of its ends and
carrying a hook and. handle at its other end.
A further feature is to- provide a metal plate,
hinged at one edge through the means of an
combinations of parts, hereinafter described and "55

sheave l8 on one of its ends, is connected at its
other end to strut 5 thereby forming an elbow
and arm support for sheave l0 in such manner
130 that sheave l0 may readily pass over sheave ||
without di?iculty when bar 4 is extended rear
ward to its maximum extent through the window
into'the room.
A U pin 1 having a long and a short prong,
£35 pivotally connects strut 5, by means of its short
er prong, to the end of bar 4. The longer prong
_ of U pin 1 is passed under the elbow formed by
strut 5 andarm 6, and thence over bar 4 thereby
providing sheave ID with ample clearance for
passing over sheave II when bar 4 is slided rear
ward into room. The projecting end of the longer
prong of U pin ‘I is inserted into recess 36, out
in the narrow end of plate 2, when bar 4 has as
sumed a horizontal position and has been extend
ed rearward to its maximum extent into the room
through the window, thereby preventing bar 4
from sliding forward or rocking downward while
the device is in operation.
An endless line or cord I5 is trained under
sheave H, and over sheave HI, pulley l2, hook
9 and pulley 35, which latter pulley is remotely
supported by a pole or other means on terrain
