It is generally well known to those skilled in the art when a survey is made across a terrain that it usually requires two men, one of which operates a transit and the other is used to hold upright a survey rod which is graduated along its length. In many instances, the surveyor is forced to accomplish the work alone without the aid of a second man for holding the survey rod. In such cases, the surveyor will attempt to support the survey rod in an upright manner upon the ground by employing stones or any other material to keep the survey rod upright, or he may lean it against a tree or even an automobile. This situation however is of course objectionable and accordingly in need of improvement.
Accordingly there is a principal object of the present invention to provide a holder for a survey rod which will support a survey rod in upright position without the necessity of employing a second man.
Yet another object of the present invention is to provide a survey rod holder having a foot rest so as to allow an operator to force the device with his foot into the ground so as to provide stability to the device for supporting a survey rod.
Yet another object of the present invention is to provide a survey rod holder having a pair of spaced apart clamps so as to secure a survey rod thereto at a selected elevation respective thereto.
