PHONE-HOLDING BRACKET LEAVES HANDS FREE
A blast from the past from Modern Mechanix.
"Acrobatic skill in holding the receiver between shoulder and chin when telephoning, in an effort to free both hands for something else, is no longer necessary if a receiver-holding attachment is fitted to your phone.
The new appliance is merely a bracket that bolts to the phone back of the transmitter and holds the receiver at the proper elevatiou and angle for convenient use. Slipping back a latch releases the hook and opens the line. When the call is completed, pressing down the hook automatically- locks it shut. The holder attaches in place of the rivet found behind the transmitter.
The device should prove particularly welcome when it is necessary to “hold the wire” for a considerable time. "
