UNITED -STAT-ES GEORG WAGNER, or MONSEY, NEW YORK.
Application filed April 7,
This invention relates to improvements in cleaning devices, and more particularlyto' cleaning implement holding devices for supporting brushes and the like, against the surfaces to be cleaned.
The object of the invention is to so hold a brush or other cleaning implement in proper position with relation to the surface being cleaned that the power applied to the moving of the brush or cleaning implementalso exerts pressure on the back of the implement, so as to hold the some in frictional contact with the surface.
A feature of the present invention is the automatic return of the cleaning implement to original position after having completed its cleaning stroke.
Another feature of the invention is the carriage in which the cleaning implements may be interchangeably supported.
With the above. and other objects in view, the invention consists in the novel construction, combination, and arrangement of parts, whicn will be fully set forth in the following specification, claimed and illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which Figure l is a vertical sectional view through a window. showing this cleaning implement applied thereto,
l igure 2 is a view, illustrating the device in use for cleaning a wall,
Figure I, is an inverted perspective view of the frame for supporting the brushes and other cleaning devices,
Figure 4 is a detail perspective view of the brush holder showing the brush in place.
l igurcv 5 is an extended view of the (ll21i|IUl.'
Figure 6 is a plan view of the chamois supporting l'rnn'ie, and
Figure 7 is a perspective View of the sponge showing the chamois in place thereon, portions being broken away to more clearly illustrate the details of construction.
Referring to the drawings in detail, the supporting frame designated generally 10 comprises side bars 11 and 12, which are connected at opposite ends by end bars 13. These end bars are provided at their ends adjacentthe bar 12 with depending ears 14, between which the cleaning implement winding roller 15 is rotatably mounted. This roller is preferably spring actuated, so that upon rotation in one direction it will, as soon as the power exerted to cause such ro- 1927. Serial No..181,633.
tation is removed, return to original position. While this roller is described as being spring actuated, it is to be understood that any other suitable return mechanism may be utilized, if desired without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention. Screwed to the end bars 13 adjacent the depending cars '14 are substantially U-shaped clamping springs 16 which are adapted to engage over the upper edge of a sash, as shown in Figure l, to support the device when in use on a window. .lhe=e springs also engage over the he'ad l'z' supported at the upper ends of uprights 18 of a suitable supporting .frame designated generally 15.) which is used when the device is utilized for cleaning walls, or the like. 7 V
V'Qlllld 0n the roller 15 is a flexible member 20, supporting at its free end a carriage 21 for supporting the cleaning implements. Depending from the carriage is a flexible member 22, the free end of which |J: .-;sc:-; around a roller 23 supported at the outer end of a bracket 24, the opposite end oi which is provided with a suitable handle 25 by which the bracket maybe held in o Jerative relation to the Surface being cleaned. A grip 26 is secured to the free end of the flexible member 22, so that pull may be readily exerted on the flexible member, thus moving the carriage against the tension of the rollcr 15. Obviously, such power exerted on the flexible members 20 and 22 will tend to hold i'llu same taut, so as to lie in a plane parallel with that of the surface being cleaned. When a brush or other cleaning implement is supported in the frame 21. it is obvious that there will be a bowing tendency on the flexible members, so that pressure will be exerted by the cleaning implement against the surface to be cleaned, thus insuring proper operation of the device.
The carriage 21, above referred to, is best illustrated in Figure 4, and comprises a body provided with a dove-tail groove 27 for the reception of a dove-tail 28 formed on the back 29 of the brush 30. Itv is thus obvious that the brush is removably supported on the carriage, and other implements, for c.\'- ample, a sponge, such as illustrated in Figure 7 may be readily substituted for the brush when such substitution is llc.('.cssal' or desirable.
The sponge illustrated in Figure 7 is provided with a suitable back 31, which in turn is provided at opposite ends with transversely extending members 32"for"jengagement in the dove tail groove 27$ As shown, the sponge projects well beyond the side edges of the back and forms a support for the polishing cloth or chamois, illustrated in Figures 5 and 7. comprises a substantially rectangular body member 33 provided at opposite ends with pockets in which the metallic sleeves 34 are secured. 'lhese sleevesare of an internal diameter to readily receive the arn'is 3).) ot a U-shaped frame. 36. The arms-35 are arranged in spaced parallel rcl'ation 'at 'a' is tance substantially equal to theWVidt-h of the back 31. so that when the polishing'cloth or chamois 33 is stretched over thespo'nge, as illustrated in Figure 7, and-the fra ine"36 slipped into place with the arms 35"e'nftering the sleeves 34, the polishing'cloth or chamois will be securely held in place." The device may he then mounted'in the carriage, and upon manipulation of the carriage, it will be obvious that the surface under treat.- mcnt may be wiped dry and polished.
While in the foregoing there has been shown and described the preferred embodiment of this invention, it is to be understood that minor changes in the details and construction, combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departin from the. spirit aml scope of the invention as claii'ned.
l-Vhat is claimed is:
l. A cleaning device comprising a portable frame having perforated ears adjacentthe opposite ends ot one side providing bearings, a spring roller mounted in said ears, clamping members afiixed to the ends of the frame adjacent said cars. a carriage, a'flexible mem- The polishing cloth' ber securedfitifitskends' tofsaid carriage and to said roller, a cleaning implement mounted onsaid carriage, a bracket, a guide roller carried by-the bracket, and a flexible member connected to the carriage and passing around the guide roller to be pulled to operate the carriage and cleaning implement.
2. A cleaning device comprising a portable frame, said frame having projecting ears adjacent the'opposite ends of one side forming bearings, a spring roller mounted in said bearings, clamping springs attached to the endsof said frame adjacent said cars, a c: riagc,,a flexible member connecting said carriage to'said' roller, a cleaning implement having doi-e tziil engagement with said carriage so. that it is removably mounted thereon, a bracket'having a'guide roller, and a flexible ineniber secured to the carriage and passing ovcrthe guide roller to be pulled to operate the cleaning implement.
3. A cleaning device comprising a portable traineuuade up of side bars connected with end bars, said end bars having projecting perforated ears to provide bearings. a spring roller mounted in said cars, clamping members affixed to said end bars adjacent said'ea'rs, a carriage, a flexible member connecting said carriage to said roller, a cleaning implement mounted on the carriage, and manually controlled means attached to the carriage. for enabling the carriage and the cleaning implement to be operated by moving them with respect to said portable frame in testimony that I claim the foregoing as my invention, l have signed my name hereto.
