(Cl. 248—175)
The invention forming the subject matter of
stand.
to be used as a pedestal for supporting trays or
As shown particularly in Figure 4 of ‘the draw
ing, the two members II and I8 constitute a
the like for display merchandise.
The main object of the invention is to provide
a very light and strong support which can be con
struotedinexpensively iromwire to form a pedestal
located on the outside of the end 6, serves as a
inoperative position because of its peculiar con
struction.
Other objects of the invention will become ap
parent as the detailed description thereof pro
ceeds:
relieves the strain on the welded connections be- 10
tween the upper ends of the brackets I5 and I1 '
support for the lower end of the wall W, and
and the top rail II.
The diagonal bracing panel 1 comprises a pair
of rods i9 and 20 pivotally connected at their
upper ends to a strut ill on one of the ends 6. 1‘
In the drawing:
Preferably, this pivotal connection is effected by
bending the upper ends of the rods I9 and 20
enlarged scale, of the rack in its expanded posi
to form eyes extending around the strut Id. The
lower ends of the rods I9 and 2|] are also bent
to form eyes 2| and 22 adapted to snap onto the 20
ends 23 and 24 of the lower strut I5 where it

Ill.
The rods I9 and 20 are secured together by
the cross braces 25 and 26. The brace 25 projects 25 ‘
at its opposite ends from the rods I9 and 2D to
manner of positioning a display stand upon the
form pivots for cooperating pivot washers 21 to
rack; and
be described hereinafter. The cross brace 26
is secured to the rods l9 and 20 near their lower
ends so as to space the free ends of the rods l9
and 20 at a distance apart less than the distance
Figure 5 is a vertical, transverse section taken
30 on the line 5—5 of Figure 1.
As shown in the drawing, the invention in
cludes ends 6 identical in structure and foldably
connected to each other by pivotally connected
diagonal skeleton panels ‘I and 8. Each end 6
comprises a rod bent to form a pair of substan
tially parallel legs 9 and Ill extending from the
opposite ends of a top rail II, and a pair of
diagonal braces l2 and I3. The free ends of the
‘ braces l2 and I3 are preferably welded to the
40 legs ill and 9 near the upper ends thereof, and
these braces are welded to each other at their
intersection.
Struts l4 and I5, substantially parallel to each
other and to rail II are welded to the legs 9 and
45 Hi. The strut I4 is located a short distance
from the top rail II and forms a support for the
lower ends of U-shaped brackets I6 and I1 formed
on the opposite ends of a retaining rod l8. This
rod l8 and the brackets l6 and H are so con
50 structed that when the free upper ends of the
brackets are welded to the innerside of the top
rail II, the lower parts of said brackets rest on
and are welded to the strut I4, while the retaining
rod I8 is spaced apart laterally from the top rail
55 II a su?icient distance to receive the projecting
between the legs 9 and It. It will be understood
that the rods I9 and 20 are of somewhat springy
material in order to permit the lower ends of said
rods to be bent outwardly from each other for
the purpose of allowing the eyes 2i and 22 to
snap onto the projecting ends of the strut I5 and
against the outer sides of the legs 9 and I0.
The diagonal bracing panel 8 comprises the
rods 28 and 29 similar in every respect to the rods 40
I9 and 28; that is, having their opposite ends
turned to form eyes by means of which the upper
ends of the rods 28 and 29 are pivoted to a strut
is and their lower ends pivoted detachably to
the projecting ends of the lower strut I5 on the
end 6 opposite to the end connected to the panel
7. The cross brace 26’ is similar to the cross
brace 25 and is welded to the rods 28 and 29 at a
su?cient distance from the lower ends of said
rods to permit said lower ends to be spread apart 50
when it is desired to snap the eyes 2| and 22 onto
the outwardly projecting ends of the strut 55.
It will be apparent from the drawing that
when the parts are expanded as shown in Fig
ure 1, the diagonal panels ‘I and 8 form with the 55
2
2,137,895
ends 6 a light and very strong pedestal for sup
porting a display stand. The members H and
I8 constitute spring clip channels adapted to
receive the lower ends of the side walls of a dis
play stand to hold the latter securely in position
on the rack. ' Whenever it is desired to fold the
rack, it is only necessary to remove the display
stand therefrom and then to spread apart the
lower ends of the rods l9 and 20, and 28 and 29,
10 to release the same from the projecting ends of
the lower struts IS. The length of each of the
rods l9 and 20 and 28 and 29 is intended to be
substantially equal to the distance between their
supporting struts I 4 and the lower ends of the
15 legs 9 and ID, so that when the rack is folded,
none of the parts of the diagonal bracing panels
will project beyond the upper and lower ends of
the legs 9 and Hi.
It will be understood that the invention is not
20 to be considered as limited to the speci?c details
of construction shown in the drawing, nor in any
other manner except as indicated in the claims
appended hereto.
What I claim is:
25
l. A display rack comprising normally vertical
substantially parallel spaced apart wire sides,
skeleton diagonal braces of springy material
pivotally connected to each other between their
ends and pivoted at one end of each to the upper
ends of said sides, the lower ends of said braces
being provided with eyes, pins projecting later
ally from opposite edges of said sides to receive
said eyes detachably, and means spaced from said
lower ends for'holding the sides of each brace at
a distance apart slightly less than‘ the width of
said vertical sides to cause said eyes to snap over
said pins and press against the outer edges of
said sides.

2. A display rack comprising normally vertical
substantially parallel spaced apart wire sides,
skeleton diagonal braces of springy material
pivotally connected to each other between their
ends and pivoted at one end of each to the upper 15
ends of said sides, the lower ends of said braces
being provided with eyes, pins projecting later
ally from opposite edges of said sides to receive
said eyes detachably, means spaced from said
lower ends for holding the sides of each brace at 20
a distance apart slightly less than the width of
said vertical sides to cause said eyes to snap over
said pins and press against the outer edges of
said sides, and spring clip rods parallel to the
upper ends of said sides to receive and position 25
the downwardly projecting opposite end walls of
a display stand.
