Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

The present invention relates to a sleeve bracket assembly, and more particularly to a sleeve bracket assembly displaying different sets of sleeves at the same time.

2. Description of Related Art

A conventional sleeve bracket assembly can merely display one set of sleeves that have slightly different sizes. An additional sleeve bracket assembly is required to receive another set of sleeves. For example, three sleeve bracket assemblies are needed to receive whole sets of sleeves that comprise complete sizes.

However, purchasing new sleeve bracket assemblies increases a purchasing cost and carrying multiple sleeve bracket assemblies is inconvenient.

To overcome the shortcomings, the present invention tends to provide a sleeve bracket assembly to mitigate the aforementioned problems.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The main objective of the invention is to provide a sleeve bracket assembly that can display different sets of sleeves at the same time.

A sleeve bracket assembly has a frame, multiple first sleeve mounts and multiple second sleeve mounts. The frame has a first bracket and a second bracket connected with the first bracket. The first sleeve mounts are mounted on the first bracket and the second sleeve mounts are mounted on the second bracket. Accordingly, the sleeve bracket assembly can display different sets of sleeves at the same time and no additional sleeve bracket assembly is required. A user does not have to purchase a new sleeve bracket assembly and carrying one sleeve bracket assembly is convenient.

Other objects, advantages and novel features of the invention will become more apparent from the following detailed description when taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

With reference to FIGS. 1 to 5, a first embodiment of a sleeve bracket assembly in accordance with the present invention comprises a frame 10, multiple first sleeve mounts 20, multiple second sleeve mounts 30 and multiple third sleeve mounts 40.

The frame 10 has a back plate 11, a first bracket 12, a second bracket 13 and multiple securing members 14. The back plate 11 is elongated and has a top, a bottom, two opposite ends, a length, a side surface and two mounting holes 111. The bottom of the back plate 11 is opposite to the top of the back plate 11. The mounting holes 111 are formed through near the top and respectively near the opposite ends of the back plate 11.

The first bracket 12 is elongated and is formed integrally on the side surface of the back plate 11 and has a top surface, a length, a combining section 121, a connecting side section 122 and a sleeve track 123. The length of the first bracket 12 is same as that of the back plate 11. The combining section 121 is L-shaped and is connected securely on the side surface of the back plate 11. The connecting side section 122 is opposite to the combining section 121. The sleeve track 123 is linear, is formed on and protrudes from the top surface of the first bracket 12 and has two parallel rails and a length the same as that of the back plate 11.

The second bracket 13 is elongated, is connected securely with the connecting side section 122 of the first bracket 12 and has a top surface, a length, an attaching side section 131 and two linear sleeve tracks 133.

The attaching side section 131 abuts the connecting side section 122 of the first bracket 12. Preferably, the connecting side section 122 and the attaching side section 131 are L-shaped.

Each sleeve track 133 is formed on and protrudes from the top surface of the second bracket 13 and has two parallel rails and a length the same as that of the back plate 11. The sleeve tracks 123,133 are parallel to one another.

Each securing member 14 is mounted through the connecting side section 122 and the attaching side section 131 and has a bolt 141 and a nut 142 connected with the bolt 141.

With reference to FIGS. 1 to 5, the first sleeve mounts 20 are detachably connected with the sleeve track 123 of the first bracket 12. Each first sleeve mount 20 has a base 21 and a positioning button 22. Each base 21 has a top surface and is slidably connected with the sleeve track 123 of the first bracket 12. Preferably, each base 21 wraps tops of the rails of the sleeve track 123 of the first bracket 12. Each positioning button 22 is formed on and protrudes from the top surface of the base 21.

The second sleeve mounts 30 and the third sleeve mounts 40 are substantially the same as the first sleeve mounts 20. The second sleeve mounts 30 are all detachably and slidably connected with one of the sleeve tracks 133 of the second bracket 13. The third sleeve mounts 40 are all detachably and slidably connected with the other sleeve track 133 of the second bracket 13.

Preferably, a cross section of the positioning button 22 of each first sleeve mount 20 is larger than that of each second sleeve mount 30. A cross section of the positioning button 32 of each second sleeve mount 30 is larger than a cross section of the positioning button 42 of each third sleeve mount 40. Accordingly, heavier sleeves can be placed closer to the back plate 11 to prevent the second bracket 13 from being broken.

With reference to FIGS. 6 to 10, a second embodiment of the sleeve bracket assembly is substantially the same as the first embodiment except that structures of the sleeve track 123A,133A are different. Each sleeve track 123A,133A has two parallel bars and a groove 1231A,1331A formed between the bars.

With reference to FIGS. 11 and 12, a third embodiment of the sleeve bracket assembly is substantially the same as the first embodiment except the following features.

The connecting side section 122B and the attaching side section 131B are integrally connected with each other to form a single flat plate.

With reference to FIGS. 13 and 14, a fourth embodiment of the sleeve bracket assembly is substantially the same as the third embodiment except that structures of the sleeve track 123C,133C are different.

With reference to FIGS. 15 and 16, a fifth embodiment of the sleeve bracket assembly is substantially the same as the second embodiment except that the bases 21D,31D,41D respectively have a round cross section and are slidably mounted in the grooves 1231D,1331D.

From the above description, it is noted that the present invention has the following advantages:

1. Cost reduction:

The sleeve bracket assembly in accordance with the present invention can display different sets of sleeves at the same time and no additional sleeve bracket assembly is required. Accordingly, a user does not have to purchase a new sleeve bracket assembly and carrying one sleeve bracket assembly is convenient.

2. Excellent versatility:

In the first and second embodiments, a user can choose whether the second bracket 13 is connected with the first bracket 12 by the securing members 14. Accordingly, a format of the sleeve bracket assembly can be changed to meet a user's need and this is versatile and convenient.
