  • Patent number: 8833596
    Abstract: In one embodiment there is provided a mounting bracket for use with a container. The container has a wall extending from a bottom to an upper edge and has a mounting flange extending outwardly from a portion of the wall. The mounting flange includes an outer surface with a terminal edge leading to upper and lower edges and a pair of distal sides. The mounting bracket has a support side positionable towards the wall of the container. The support side includes a notched section with a base extending outwardly from the support side and a pair of lateral faces extending outwardly and away from edges of the base. Each lateral face includes a member positioned along a portion thereof and which extends towards the other member in a tapering edge such that the sides of the mounting flange are captured between the support side and the extending members.

  • Patent number: 8813978
    Abstract: A material supporting ledge is configured to be attached to a horizontal rail support. The ledge has a support bracket with a central section with dual arm members for securing the ledge onto a horizontal rail or an arm extension member which is inserted into one of the openings in an e-track rail. The bracket also has two downwardly extending framing elements connected to two platform elements on which support blocks are positioned. The ledge can be secured onto the rail and is quickly mountable to and removeable from the rail without the use of tools. Upon the placement of the ledge on the rail, the ledge is securely maintained in position against rail. Material, including glass plates of varying sizes, can be placed on the ledge, over larger glass plates already being carried in the system.

  • Patent number: 8807501
    Abstract: A wall mountable holder may include a base portion, a first arm, and a second arm extending outward from the base, where each of the arms may extend to a distal end spaced away from the base. Additionally, the holder may include at least one groove extending downwardly from an upper edge of at least one of the arms. The holder also may include a tab extending inward at a distal end of at least one of the arms, the tab including a leading surface angled inward and rearward from proximate the distal end, and a trailing surface angled outward and rearward from the leading surface. An opening may be formed between the arms, proximate the distal ends, such that the opening may be narrower than a spacing between the arms at each point between the base and the opening.

  • Patent number: 8776414
    Abstract: A media display assembly comprises a support and a sign holder. The support defines a substantially vertical section, a substantially horizontal section, and a bent transition section extending between the substantially vertical section and the substantially horizontal section. The support is formed in a substantially L-shape. The sign holder includes a first panel and a second panel sized substantially identically to the first panel. The first panel and the second panel are coupled to one another along a closed edge of the sign holder and define a slot therebetween them for receiving a sign. The second panel of the sign holder is coupled to the substantially vertical section of the support on a side of the substantially vertical section opposite the substantially horizontal section. The second panel of the sign holder extends in a plane substantially perpendicular to the substantially horizontal section of the support.

  • Patent number: 8770416
    Abstract: A wall mountable organizer assembly is provided for storing and displaying items in an organized manner including a removable calendar. The assembly includes a back panel configured for mounting on a support surface. A perimeter wall extends around the back panel. The perimeter wall also extends forwardly from the back panel to define a back cavity. A medial panel is selectively positionable in the back cavity. A cover panel is pivotally coupled to the back panel. The cover panel covers the back cavity when the cover panel is in a closed position. The cover panel having a front face and a back face. A peripheral wall extends around the cover panel. The peripheral wall abuts the perimeter wall of the back panel when the cover panel is in the closed position. The peripheral wall forms a frame around the front face of the cover panel.

  • Patent number: 8757568
    Abstract: A wall mount assembly includes a first engagement member and a second engagement member. The first engagement member includes a slide structure and two positioning indentations oppositely disposed relative to the slide structure. The second engagement member includes a slider and two positioning bosses oppositely disposed relative to the slider. The first engagement member and the second engagement member are capable of being correspondingly disposed on an object and a wall. When the slider enters the slide structure from an entrance of the slide structure and is confined to slide relative to the slide structure so as to be blocked at a stop position of the slide structure, the two positioning bosses are embedded in the two positioning indentations respectively so that the object can be fixed on the wall stably. Therefore, the wall mount assembly simplifies the wall-mount operation of the object and provides a stable wall-mount effect.

  • Patent number: 8752718
    Abstract: An end frame assembly, for use with a display unit including a post having at least one aperture formed through each of two opposing surfaces of the post, including an end frame, a first stationary plate coupled to the end frame, a second stationary plate coupled to the end frame and spaced from and extending substantially coplanarly with respect to the first stationary plate, and a first slide plate disposed over the first stationary plate and including a first tab capable of fitting within one of the apertures formed through one of the two opposing surfaces of the post. The first slide plate is selectively coupled with the first stationary plate via at least a first fastener, and the first fastener is selectively releasable to selectively allow linear movement of the first slide plate and selectively securable to hold the first slide plate in a substantially static position.
