  • Patent number: 4779815
    Abstract: A support apparatus for an electric cord, a garden hose, and the like having first and second cantilevered arm members defining an elongated slot. The elongated slot is dimensioned to receive successive loops of a coiled article, but prevents passage of the terminal members of the coiled article. First and second flexible tang members are cantilevered from the arm members and extend into the elongated slot for blocking engagement with a coiled article retained in the elongated slot. The tang members are self-yieldingly responsive to a forceful movement of the coiled article, so as to permit insertion and removal of successive loops from the elongated slot. The tang members have rounded entrance edges to facilitate insertion and have diverging end segments to facilitate removal of the coiled article. The surfaces which define the elongated slot have notches disposed to permit free movement of the diverging end segments of the tang members.
