Title: Closet mounted ironing board

Abstract: An ironing board center is mounted in a custom closet and occupies less than 10" of the closet. The ironing board center includes a pivot arm which is mounted to a side wall or divider of the closet, an extension arm journaled about the pivot arm and is movable axially and rotatably relative to the pivot arm, and an ironing board which is fixed to the extension arm. A pivot stop holds the pivot arm in a generally horizontal plane when the ironing board is pivoted down. A rotation stop prevents the ironing board from rotating relative to the pivot arm, and maintains the ironing board in a substantially horizontal position when the ironing board is lowered. An extension lock maintains the extension arm in the extended position. A spring clip engages the extension arm or pivot arm to hold the ironing board in its upright, storage position.
