usage to which it may be put during a working
mote from the arms 3 is provided- with an open

portion a of a substantially U-shaped holding clip
'I. ’The legs b of this holding clip 'I extend
through the transversely spaced openings 8 pro
vided in the intermediate portion 9 of the jaw B
at one extremity thereof.
This invention relates to a mop holder and it
is an object of the invention to provide a device
of this kind which will effectively hold or clamp
the mop and in a manner whereby the mop will
be held against release irrespective of any rough

This jaw B,.as‘herein disclosed, is U-shaped in
a holder of this kind which can `be applied with ‘ cross section from end to end and is'of Va length

A. The legs 8 of the clip 'I extend a desired dis
wherein the construction of the holder is such
as to substantially eliminate bending of the frame » tance beyond the intermediate portion 9 of the
jaw B and have their free extremities outwardly
and more particularly when a relatively heavy
flared, as at I0, to provide abutments for the ex
mop is applied to the holder.
The invention consists in the details of con 15 pansible member II, herein disclosed as a coil

In the embodiment of the invention as dis
As is clearly illustrated in the accompanying
drawings, the side flanges I2 of the jaw B are
outwardly disposed or in a direction toward the
jaw A with the flange I of the jaw A substan
tially midway of the side ñanges l2. This fur
ther assures an effective clamping of the mop or
head between the jaws.
The intermediate portion 9 of the .iaw'B at
its free end or at the extremity thereof remote
from its pivotal mounting is provided with an
open recess or notch I4 of a size to accommodate

From the foregoing description it is thought
to be obvious that a mop holder constructed in
