TODAY’S PATENT – STORAGE SHELF ASSEMBLY
The STORAGE SHELF ASSEMBLY was invented by Thomas Dickinson (St. Louis, MO) on the 15th of June, 1993 bearing patent number US5218914A.
The present invention relates to the storage shelf assembly which has multiple shelves and each one-piece molded integrally and is a plastic construction having a socket at an end. The assemblies are made up of metal and each component of the assemblies are bolted together. The support of the shelves is in horizontal, vertical, and parallel spaced relation such as plastic poles. For support receiving purposes, each shelf has a sleeve at the corner. In the case of some plastic assemblies, the shelf can be assembled without the use of fasteners and these assemblies are strong and excellent support and thereby it is inexpensive and easy to assemble as well as to disassemble. The sleeve is placed at each corner of the shelf for receiving a pole and each sleeve extends outwardly beyond the end rim of the shelf. The storage has means for connecting the assembly and the assemblies are end to end related. The invention proved to be an inexpensive and convenient one as well as there is the ease in assembling with no use of time-consuming fasteners.
