My invention relates to a new and improved
holder for mops, brushes, and other devices.
Holders for mops and other devices are gen
erally shown in Hertzberg U. S. Patents No.
In order to assemble the parts, the clip member
2 is initially assembled with the wire bar I. Said
member 2 may be freely turnable relative to bar

theolip 2 is initially assembled with bar I, clip 2
is freely turnable relative to bar 1, around the
longitudinal axis of bar I.
