This invention relates to improvements in a
combined boot jack and boot hook.
Bootiacks and boot hooks, as used heretofore,
have required separate instruments for the respec
tive purposes.
The object of this invention is to combine, the
boot jack and boot hook, capable of separation
for the respective purposes, and yet providing a

out-turned feet l0.

The hooks 4-4, when used as a boot jack,‘serve
as a resting stand to hold the device in the correct
position for use, as shown in Fig. 5. The loop 8
is coiled around the body 3, as shown in Figs.
1 and 4, so as to reinforce and brace the stand
to sustain the weight placed thereupon when
used as a boot jack. The wire or rod of the body
component parts are interlocked, as well as a 10 portion 3 is corrugated in a single plane so as to
provide a resting place for the sole of one foot

The device is light in weighhe?icient, and simple
in construction, making it highly practical for
