the base B by pivoting loops integrally formed at
The invention relates to means whereby con
one extremity of the above-mentioned side stand
ards A and C. The locking loop D is formed in
the general shape of a U and has integrally
formed on its two extremities pivoting loops, by
means of which said locking loop is attached to
the cross member portion of side standards C.
Side standards A are connected together at
their opposite extremities from their points of
tainers are held so they can be readily inserted
in and removed from a vessel for processing the
food in the containers.

An object of the invention .is to provide .a
holder of this character in which it is easy to en
close the container in the holder.

Another object is to provide a safe and positive
enclosure for containers during the entire opera
