Roberts, Port orchard, Wash. Application February 2, 1945, Serial No. 575,902 1 Claim. ( Cl. 248-99) 1 2 This invention relates to a bag or hamper holder in the form of a bracket, over which the open end of a bag or hamper in which articles are being positioned, is stretched, to the end that the mouth of the bag -is held open so that one person may readily and easily place articles in the bag. An important object of the invention is to pro vide a device of this character embodying a rectangular frame and supporting arms con nected with the frame, the device being free of all clamps and movable securing members. With the foregoing and other objects in View, which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention consists of certain novel details of construction and combinations of parts herein after more fully described and pointed out in the claim, it being understood that changes may be made in the construction and arrangement of parts without departing from the spirit of the invention as claimed. Referring to the drawings. Figure 1 is a plan View of a bag or hamper support, constructed in accordance with the in vention, illustrating a bag or hamper as posi-l tioned over the support. Figure 2 is a front elevational view thereof. Figure 3 is a vertical sectional view through The opposite ends of the arms 6 extend down wardly at right angles with respect to the for ward ends of the supporting arms, as at 9, where they are widened providing iianges I0 which are formed with openings to receive securing screws, whereby the device is positioned or se cured on a supporting surface. The bag or hamper is indicated by the refer ence character ll, which bag is preferably con structed of canvas and formed with a hem at its open end in which the reinforcing string or wire l2 is held. ` The reinforcing string or wire I2 reduces the diameter of the open end of the bag or hamper, to a size appreciably smaller than the frame, so that the front edge of the frame may be posi tioned within the open end of the bag, and the rear side of the open end of the bag placed over the rear edge of the frame, securing the bag or 20 hamper to the frame. Due to the construction of the supporting arms, it will be seen that they will not in any the bag and support. Figure 4 is a fragmental plan View of one end of the rack or support. Figure 5 is an elevational View of one end of the bag or hamper support. Referring to the drawings in detail, the bracket or support comprises a main frame section 5 which is substantially rectangular in forma tion. The reference character 6 indicates support way interfere with the positioning of the bag or hamper over the main frame of the device. From the foregoing it will be seen that a bag or hamper may be readily positioned and se cured in place on the holder, and may be read ily and easily removed when it has become iilled. What is claimed is: A hamper or bag support, comprising :a sub stantially rectangular frame embodying side bars, supporting arms, the forward ends of the sup porting arms being extended laterally, the ex tremities of the laterally extended portions of the arms being secured to the side bars of the frame, at points intermediate the ends 'of the side bars, said supporting arms being extended upwardly and rearwardly, where they connect with a supporting surface, said frame adapted ing arms which have their outer ends extended laterally, where they are secured to the inner io to be positioned within the open end of a hamper surface of the ends of the main frame section bag, the size oi the open end of the bag being 5, as by welding, indicated by the reference char acter l. As clearly shown by Figure 3 of the drawings, the arms 6 are inclined downwardly away from 45 the supporting member, 8. appreciably smaller than the frame, whereby the hamper bag is held on the frame.
