lfl/f/EIWUR 60mm .H. Rees! ATTORNEYS h Ne a w i gr n. iii-ii.

tlpectllcatian ct" Itie'ttci .ttpplioation filed ltllecembcr 8, will. aerial IaToi de imit To all 'UJ/LOIJL it may concern lie it known that l, tlannonn H. linen, a citizen Off the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county and State o1t' New rm-k, have invented a new and Improved Huspcnding ilevice t'or llmbrellas, of which lho following is a full, clear, and exact Clesrription.

My invention relates to a device for suspending umbrellas in inverted position, and it comprises means which can be secured to the tip or extremity of the shank of the umbrella to engage any convenient support. For this purpose the said means comprises a pivoted member which is swung outward to make an angle with the tip when the same is neededfor use, and which can be tolded back along the tip at all other times. The object in suspending the umbrella is to permit the same to be dried.

Hotel-once is to be hadto the accompanying drawings forming apart of this speci lication, in which the'same characters of rcl'oreuoe indicate the same parts in all the views. I

Figure 1 is a View of the outer end of an umbrella, showing one of my suspending devices detachably secured thereto; and Fig. 2 is a similar View, showing a modified form of my improved detachable suspending device.

On the drawings, the numeral 1 represents the shank of an umbrella, which projects the usual distance beyond the collar or ferrule, to which is centrally secured the umbrella cover 2. or tip of this shank I secure my suspending device, which, in the form shown in Fig. 1, comprises a hollow casing, preferably cylindrical in form, indicated by the numeral 3, and having a slot 4 in one side thereof. Mounted between a pair of lugs or cars 5 at the inner end of this slot is an arm (3, secured to the ears or lugs 5 by means of a pivot-pin 7, and having its outer end roundcd oil, as at 8, and its lower end recessed, as shown at 9, to form a finger to engage the support upon which the umbrella is hung. The end of the arm 6 adjacent the pivot-pin 7 is squared, so as to abut against the side of the tip of the shank 1; and, if desired, a shoulder indicated by the numeral 4: may be formed at the inner end of the slot 1-, to engage the upper edge of the arm (3, to assist in preventing this arm from ro- On the outer extremity tating beyond normal position with respect to the tip of the shank l. The casing 3 also carries on its interior a leai spring 10, centrally secured to the casing and extend ing toward both the open ends thereof. The effect of this spring is to secure the casing 3 upon the tip of the shank 1 when the umbrella is to be hung up; and the spring acts to draw the inner surface of the casing adjacent the longitudinal slot 6t, tightly against the side of the tip, so as to cause the squared inner end of the arm G-tO abut against the side of the tip of the shank l, and remain in extended position when it is desired to suspend the umbrella.

The utility of the suspending device will now be apparent. The casing 8 can be applied to the extremity of the shank 1, simply by slipping it upon the shank. At this time the arm (5 will be in such position as to be parallel with the longitudinal axis of the cylindrical casing 3, and its lower edge will rest against the side of the shank 1. The leaf spring 10 will hold the casin 3 upon the shank with the arm 6 in folded position; and when it is desired to hang up the umbrella, the arm 6 is rotated through an angle of ninety degrees by hand, its lower inner corner bearing upon the side of the shank 1. During this operation, the spring 10 will give to a certain extent to permit the rotation of the arm, the casing 3 moving laterally of the shank 1, as will be understood; and when the arm is in extended position the tension of the spring 10 will be exerted to draw the interior surface of the easing 3 adjacent the pivoted end of the arm 6 tightly against the lateral surface of the shank, so as to cause the inner squared end of the arm (3 to abut against, the side of the shank 1, and be held in the position shown on the drawings. The umbrella can then be hung up by causing the notch 9 in the lower edge of the arm 6, to engage a bar, a rail, or any other convenient support, to permit the cloth cover thereof to dry out. The casing 3 is preferably cylindrical, but it may be elliptical in cross section if desired.

The modification shown in Fig. 2 is the same as that shown in Fig. 1, but has in ad dition an extension 11, which projects from one end of the casing 3. This projection has its lower end bent over to engage the inner end of the collar or ferrule mounted upon the shank 1, adjacent the cloth cover 2. This exloi tension 11' will prevent the ,casing 3 from tension 11 will prevent the casing 3 from. slipping off the tip of the shank 1, even should thespring be too weak to' hold 'the. same thereon. I have provided this 6 hook extension 11 to guard against the extension 3 being jarred orjolted toward the endof the shank 1 and slsigfing off the'same when the umbrella is u as a cane or a (walking stick. When so used, the hookexj g m' -pfi the umbrella shank and getting H {wish tohhave 'it understood that I may i make certain changes in the shape, size and arrangement of the arts,such as fairly fall J within, the scope an s iritof my inventio u Having thus descri dr my invention, I claimias new-anddesire to secure by Letters 'Batent': sf 9 xi i-1n vwa 'suspending' *device for umbrellas and the like, the combination of a hollow having a lateral opening, an ,armivotally mountedon said casing and havin its inner end projectinginto said latera 2 opening, and a spring mounted inside said casing and opposite said opening, the inner end of said arm being squared, whereby, when the casing is slipped upon the outer end of the shank of an umbrella, the said s rini will hold said an n either parallel to the -s ank of said umbrella or at rightangles thereto, to suspend the said umbrella inlnverted position; 2. in asuspending' 'devicer for umbrellas and the like, the combination of a hollow open-endedcasing Having {slot or o 'aen ir g .7
