CHESTER GRIER IRWIN, OF ARDMORE, PENNSYLVANIA.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Jan. 9, 1912.
Application filed December 22, 1910. Serial No. 598,801.
T 0 all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, CHESTER G. Imvrx, a citizen of the United States, residing at Ardmore, in the county of Montgomery and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bottle-Holders, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to a device for holding a bottle or the like, to be used by a baby or by a young child.
An important object of this invention is to provide a device of the above character which may be readily connected with a chair, baby carriage, crib or the like, so that the occupant thereof may have ready access to the bottle.
A further object of this invention is to provide a device for holding a bottle or the ike, which device may be readily adjusted to change the length thereof, so that said device may be connected with different sizes of supports.
A further object of this invention is to provide a device for holding a bottle or the like, which is simple in construction, cheap to manufacture, and hi hly durable.
Other objects and a vantages of this invention will be apparent during the course of the following description.
In the accompanying drawings formin a part of this specification, and in which like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the same, Figure 1 is a side view of the device showing a bottle supported thereby, and Fig. 2 is a plan view of the same.
In the drawings wherein is illustrated a preferred embodiment of my invention, the numeral 1 designates a bottle provided, as shown, with a nipple 2. This bottle may be of the shape shown, or may be of any other type.
The device for supporting the bottle comrises a strap 3, which may preferably be formed of elastic web, although any other suitable flexible material, such as cotton duck, leather or even sheet-metal may be em loyed. The strap 3 is provided intermediate its ends with a strip 4, which may preferably be formed of the same material as the strap 3. This strip is stitched or otherwise suitably connected with the strap 3, as shown at 5. The strip 4 and the oppositely disposed portion of the stra 3 cooperate to form a pocket for holding the bottle 1, as clearly shown in Fig. 2. The ends of the strap 3 are run through opcnings 6 formed through books 7. Each of these ends extends inwardly or toward the strip 4, as shown, and engage a buckle 8, which is adjustably mounted upon the strap 3, as shown. This buckle comprises a rectangular body portion 9, having a transverse strip 10 connected with the ends thereof. This buckle is further provided with a pair of openings 11, through which the strap 3 is passed. The end of the strap 3 is also passed through the openings 11, and engages the strip 10, said end being clamped against the strip 10 by the strap 3.
From the description of the above referred to parts, it is obvious that by moving the buckle 8 longitudinally of the strap 3, the length of the same may be changed. By loosening the strap within the buckle 8, the inner end of said strap may be moved inwardly, whereby the length of said strap is changed. The strap therefore may be adjusted to change its length in two distinct ways, as above described.
In the employment of the device, the bottle 1 is first positioned to be held by the strap 3. The length of the strap is then changed so that the hooks 7 may engage the support, which may be the arms of a chair, or the like.
I wish it understood that the form of my invention herewith shown and described, is to be taken as a preferred example of the same and that certain changes in the shape, size and arrangement of parts, may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the subjoined claim.
Having thus described my invention, I claim In combination, a nursing bottle provided with a nipple, a flexible strap provided intermediate its ends with a strip of flexible material stitched thereto to form with an oppositely arranged portion of said strap a pocket open at both ends to receive the bottle and frictionally hold the same from displacement, hooks secured to the strap for holding the same stretched in a straight longitudinal position, whereby the bottle may have sli ht oscillatory movement due to the flexibility of the stretched strap, said hooks havin openings formed therethrough to receive t e ends of said strap, buckles longitudinally movably mounted upon said strap, and each of said buckles being pro- In testimony wherepf I afiix my signature vided With spaced openlngssepa rated by a in presence of two witnesses. transverse section of material, the end of 'v n i M7 the strap passing through said openings and ('HEbFLR GLILR 5 resting against said transverse section of \Vitnesses:
