This invention relates to a screen for beds or cribs and has for its object to provide a screen formed of a series of detachable foraminous sections adapted to be connected with the sides and ends of a bed to set up a foraminous inclosure to prevent one sleeping from being annoyed by flies and mosquitos.
Further objects of the invention are to provide a screen for the purpose set forth which is simple in its construction and arrangement, strong, durable, eflicient in its use, conveniently attached to the bed and comparatively inexpensive to manufacture.
With the foregoing and other objects in view, the invention consists of a novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts as hereinafter more specifically described and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein is shown an embodiment of the invention, but it is to be understood that changes, variations and modifications can be resorted to which come within the scope of the claim hereunto appended.
In the drawings :-Figure 1 is a side elevation of a bed showing one of the side members of the screen attached in position to the side of the bed, and Fig. 2 is a perspective view, broken away, of one end memher, one side member and the top member of the screen and further showing a portion of the bed, the members referred to being detached from the bed.
Referring to the drawings in detail the bed which is referredvto generally by the reference character 3 has the upper rails of the head and foot thereof, only one of these rails being shown, which is indicated at 4.
