  • Patent number: 5601300
    Abstract: A bracket assembly for attachment to a motor vehicle frame member is adapted to support a frame mounted vehicle accessory, such as a step or running board. The bracket assembly comprises a pair of primary brackets, a pair of connecting pins, a support member, a mounting bracket, and a leveling bracket. The primary brackets define surfaces engaging a vehicle frame member without drilling. The connecting pins extend between and connect the primary brackets. The support member is substantially vertical and is supported by the primary brackets and connecting pins. The mounting bracket extends substantially horizontally from the support member to the accessory. The leveling bracket is fixed to the mounting bracket at a point proximate to the accessory and is fixed to the support member at a point separate from where the mounting bracket attaches to the support member.

  • Patent number: 4372449
    Abstract: A lightweight, portable, auxiliary towel rack adapted for use with an existing towel bar includes spaced legs uniquely configured such that the towel rack is securely held in place on the towel bar. Each leg includes a first straight section at one end of which a reversely bent portion having a second straight section is provided. A straight third section extends from the reversely bent portion, the third straight section being substantially at right angles to the first straight section. A short wall-engaging portion extends from the third straight section in a direction generally parallel to the first straight section. The legs are connected to the underside of an oval member having a major dimension approximately equal to that of conventional towel bars. In use, the reversely bent portions of the legs are wrapped about the towel bar and the wall-engaging portions engage the wall.
