Bearing these actors in mind, Iyhave found that the diliicu ties heretofore referred to can lbe overcome by 'pijQYi ing a hook Qlvthetunder side of the sill nieniber (which term is intend ed to refer lto an integral sill and stool and also to a'stool made as a separate ece from the sill) which hook is positione substanybe inadeintegral but I .ing the l e berg.

This hook is so arranged that a radiator `bracket member can be lnterlolcked with it in such a way as to prevent such member from moving inwardly in relation to the sill, and preferably the interlocking is so 'arranwed that the two cannot become se arated un ess t e inner part of such mein er is raised. oweven'it is essential that such radiator bracket member be readil connected to suc hook aft-er the window Vis m place and should be readilyremovable therefrom. Y t t, A The radiator bracket vmex'nber isv adapted to interlock with such hook on the underside of the sill, and extends over a portion of the masonry. wall and Preferably .is Supported against downward `inovement near the inner face of the `masonry wall. t The radiator bracket proper colep'ends fromthi's mem er.

Illustrative examples of devices embodying e p asm is -in page, wenn@ o hill) this invention are shown in the accompanying drawings in which Fig. 1 is a sectional view through a wall and window-frame showing the device in operation with a radiator in place; Fig. 2 is a section on line 2-2 of Fig. 1 ut showin the radiator removed, and Fig. 8 shows a m 'lied structure. i
In the example illustrated in Figa 1 and 2, the sill 3 has made integral with 1t a stool 4 which extends out over the radiator as indicated at 6. Other portions of the windowframe are illustrated in the drawing, but as they form no part of the present invention, they are not further described.
The sill 3 rests on a wall of masonry or similar material desi ated by the numeral 8, and 10 indicates t e plaster face of the wall. Welded to the underside of the sill 3 is a hook-sha ed member 12. This preferably extends or substantially the length of the sill and assists in supporting the stool rtion 4 of the sill. A horizontal member 14' 1s adapted to interlock with member 12 as shown in Fig. 1. The inner edge of member 14 is turned up to form a lip 16 and near the inner edge, member 14 may either rest directly on the masonry of the wall or a shim 18 may be inserted. The member 14 may be substantially the length of the radiator, or as shown in Fig. 2, one member 14 may be used for each radiator bracket. It will he noted that the member 14 can readily be removed at any time, and therefore does not need to be installed until after the window-frame is in place and the plaster 10 is finished. At that time the workman installing the job can go through the building with an assortment of pieces corresponding to member 14 and at each window can insert the a propriete size so that the lip 16 is substantially in line with the innerface of the laster 10. The radiator bracket has a vertic portion 20 adapted to lie llat against the plaster 10, which ortion is bent over at the top to form a hoo 22. As here illustrated, the bracket proper is made in one piece, having a radiator supporting portion 24 which is bent inward from the portion 20.
In the form of device shown in Fig. 3 the horizontal member 14 is made integral with the vertical portion 20 of the bracket.
By either of these arrangements it is readily possible to fabricatea sill and stool of an appropriate width and then, due to the fact that the horizontal member is readily-removable, the radiator brackets can be installed accurately after the wall is finished and plastered. Even if the horizontal member were not readily removable, the structure shown herein would be highly advantageous because of the fact that the weight of the radiator is carried by the masonry wall, so that there is no tendency for the sill to be dragged down, but at the same time the radiator supports are held located in proper position due to their connection with the sill.
What I claim is:
1. In combination with a metal sill member built into a wall, a hook on the underside of the sill member removed back from the inner face of such wall, a readil removable member adapted to engage sai hook, and when so engaged to be held a inst inward movement, and a radiator brac et adapted to lie against the inner face of the wall supported by and connected with said removable member. l
2. A structure as specified in claim l, in which the radiator bracket and said removable member are separable.
3. A structure as cified in claiml in which said hook has a ownwardly extending portion adapted to engage the upper edge of the readily removable member and the structure comprises a horizontal member adapted to engage the underside of said removable member whereby said removable member will be held locked in said hook until the free end thereof is lifted.
4. -In combination with a metal sill member built in a wall, a substantially horizontal support member resting on the wall below the sill and spaced away from the sill, radiator supports connected with such horizontal member so that the weight of the radiator is carried directl by the wall, and means for connecting Asuch horizontal member with the sill to hold such horizontal member in place on the wall.
5. The combination with a stool structure having a depending stiiening ange along its inner margin, of a supporting member separate from the i'lange and located beneath the stool and behind the flange, and a hanger bracket hung from said member.
6. The combination with a stool structure having a depending stiiening flange along its inner margin, o'f a supportingrmember separate from the llan'ge and located beneath fthe stool and behind the flange and having an upstanding hook portion behind said flange, and a hanger bracket havin a hooked upper end passin between the ange and member and hoo ed over the upstanding hook ortion of the supporting ember.
7 he combination with a w ll structure including a stool that extends inwardly beyond the wall structure, of fa supporting member beneath the stool and behind its inner end, said supporting member resting on the wall structure beneath the stool, and a hanger bracket suspended from the supporting member.
8. The combination with a stool structure having a depending stiiening flange along its inner edge portion, of a supporting plate separate from the ilange and secured to the stool structure behind the flange, and a hanger bracket hung from the plate.
9. The combination with a stool structure having a depending stfening flange along its inner edge portion, of a depending supporting plate secured to the stool structure behind the ange and having an upstandng hook margin spaced from the flange, and a hanger bracket having a ooked upper end suspended from the hook margin, said bracket dependin below the stool structure.
