' Application January 15, 1945, Serial No. 572,856 7 Claims. (01. 306-32) 1 2 My invention relates to a holder for contain ing wrenches of the same general kind but of different sizes, and an object of my invention, among others, is the provision of a holder in which wrenches of all the different sizes which wrenches being bent at substantially right angles shaped sockets in heads I6 or bolts upon which this particular type ofwrench is intended to are usually required for use on different sizes of operate. to the handles l4 and of a shape in cross section shown herein as hexagonal to ?t the hexagonally The sockets 9 are preferably of a size to ?t wrenches and to receive the same in the head 1 for ready use. and when the cap I‘! is fully attached to the One form of a holder embodying my invention, and in the construction and use of which the 10 head and seated against the shoulder I2 the Wrenches will be ?rmly held in place and. may objects herein set out, as well as others, may be be located for operation upon the heads of bolts attained is illustrated in the accompanying or screws in different positions in which the latter drawing, in which— may be found. ‘ Figure l is a side view of my improved wrench While the holder hereinabove described is of a 15 holder. . satisfactory form I prefer that form of the de Figure 2 is a view in lengthwise central sec vice shown in Figs. 5 and 6 as being more effec tion through the holder. tive in use and cheaper in construction. In this Figure 3 is aperspective view showing the end‘ construction of the device the head [8 is formed of the holder with the cap removed. Figure 4 is an end view of the holder. 20 at the end of the stock in much the same man ner as hereinbefore described. A recess [9 is Figure 5 is a perspective view illustrating the bolts may be contained in permanent position wrench holder in its preferred form. \ formed at the end of the head IB with holes 2|] ‘ for the shanks of wrenches extending from the Figure 6 is a view in side elevation of said bottom of this recess along the head and into the holder. While my improved holder is not intended for 25 shank in the manner as hereinbefore described with respect to the other form of the tool. Slots use with any particular type of wrench it ?nds 2| are formed in the wall of the recess extend ready use for holding wrenches for operating ing vertically therein and these ‘terminate at upon socket bolts or screws, so called, in which their inner ends in notches 22 extending at right sockets of angular shape in cross section, com monly hexagonal, are formed in the ends of 30 angles to the slots 2|. Wrench holding notches 23 open out of the notches 22 for the reception the screws or bolts for the reception of a wrench, of the working ends l5 of the wrenches which and these wrenches are commonly formed with are inserted in-the notches 23 as the shanks or the operating end extending at about a right handles M of the wrenches are thrust through angle to the handle or stock, particularly as shown in Fig. 2 of the drawing. 35 the openings in the head into the opening in the stock, as shown in Figs. 2, 5 and 6 of the draw In this drawing the numeral 6 denotes the ing. stock of the holder that is hollow and that is A plug 211v is formed to ?t the recess I 9 and has provided with a head 1 at its outer end. The projecting lugs 25 which enter the slots 2| and stock is preferably cylindrical in shape, the hole therein being round, and from this hole 8 and 40 by turning the plug as by means of a screw driver inserted in the curf 26 the lugs 25 are extending through the head to the outer end turned to overlie the working ends of the thereof are four sockets 9, in the particular ar wrenches l5 as shown in Fig. 6 and thereby re rangement shown herein, although the number tain the wrenches securely in place within the of these sockets may be varied. A hub H! ex‘ tends from the head 1 to the outer extremity 45 handles. I claim: thereof, the sockets 9 extending out at the end 1. A wrench holder comprising a hollow handle, of this hub. The hub is threaded to receive a a head formed on the end of the handle, circum threaded ?ange l l of a cap I 1 that is ?tted to the ferentially spaced holes of different diameters hub l l] as shown particularly in Fig. 3.
