This invention relates to supporting brackets, and in
particular to a bracket for temporarily positioning and
holding an eaves trough during installation.
Sections of roof gutter are of considerable length, and
would therefore ordinarily require the services of more
than one Workman to hold them in place while the initial
fastening is effected. This problem is further complicated

turning handle 56 and threaded in a nut 58 welded to
the bracket. In order to prevent turning of the rod 44
when ?the set screw is slightly loosened for sliding adjust
ment, the rod has a ?at portion 66.
In use, a pair of the brackets is secured to the plank
14 by nails through the bores 46, being spaced apart a
distance less than the length of trough to be installed.
The strap portions of the brackets are then adjusted to
approximately the desired position for the trough, and
the set screws tightened. The trough is then laid on the
brackets, after which ?nal adjustment of the brackets is
made, and partial nailing of the trough to the building
effected, after which the anchoring nails of the rods are

It is therefore an object of the invention to provide a

support means which enables one-man installation of
eaves troughs. A further and related object is to provide
a support as aforesaid in which adjustment of the run-off
nailing of the trough to the building completed.
Ir" desired, the upper part of the rod, which is subjected
to the hardest usage, may be made replaceable, as by the
gradient is facilitated. Yet another object is to provide 20 extra tip 62 (FIGURE 2) interhally threaded for secure
