This invention relates to new and useful im
provernents in hangers of the character especially
designed for supporting eaves troughs.
The principal object of the present invention
l is to provide an eaves trough hanger which will
greatly simplify the job of removing and replac
ing troughs when they become dilapidated.
Another important object of the present inven
tion is to provide an eaves trough hanger includ
lo ing an anchoring member for the suspending
means which is a permanent fixture and which is
not affected when troughs are being removed and
Other important objects and advantages of the
l5 invention will become apparent to the reader of
the following specification.
