BEDCLOTHES-HLDLDER! 1,082,929, Specification of Letters Patent. l Pdid mm3 Still, 19h@ Application filed April 1.2, 1913. Serial No. 760,715

an enlarged head over which is the coiled loop 8, which yieldabl rod 6 in its normal locke Mounted upon the rod 6 is a rubber tuhin1 9, which is adapted to protect the be i against being marred or scratched by the rod and also eliminates the noise when the same strikes against the vframe of the bed. It will be apparent that in applying the frame to the bed clothes, the clothing will be arranged across the opening between the longitudinal bars 2 and the bar 6 pressed downwardly against the clothing where it is yieldabiy held the coiled loo 8, so that the clothing which is disposed etween the rod 6 and the bars 2 will be securely held in place.h d b i A U-s ape su ortin mem er 9 is vided, the ends pp g p To all wk om t may concern:

Be it known that I, CHARLES E. CART WRIGHT, a citizen ofthe United States, residing at Fort Wayne, in the county of Allen and State of Indiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bedclothes-Holders, of which the following is a specilication, reference being had to the accompanying drawings.

iis invention relates to new and useful clothes holders, the object of the invention being to provide a device of this character which will hold down the clothing at any part of the bed, such as the foot or'sides thereof, Without danger of damaging the bed clothing or interfering With-the comfort of the occupant and which can be readily applied `to its position or removed therefrom.

Another object of the invention is to provide a bed clothes holder of the above character which will possess advantages in points of efficiency and durabilit is inexpensive of manufacture and at the same4 time is simple in' construction and operation. f Withsthe above and otherobjects in view, this invention consists in the novel features of construction and the combination and arrangement of the parts to be hereinafter more fully described, pointedout in the in the accompanying drawings,.in which* -Figure 1 is a top plan view of a bed clothes holder constructed in accordance with my invention, illustrating t-he application of the same; Fig. 2 is'a transverse sectional vieW; and Fig. 3 is an end elevation.

Referring more particularly to the drawings, l indicates the frame of the holder, which com rises the longitudinal parallel arranged si e bars 2 integrally connected at one end by means of the cross `bar 3. The other ends ofthe bars 2 are integrally connected by means of the curved 'supporting bar 4. Mounted upon the cross bar 3 is a coil spring 5, the ends of which are disposed Wit-hin and ri idly secured to the binding rod 6said ro being arranged between the longitudinal bars 2 and havm'g its opposite end resting, when in a closed operatlve position upon the curved bar 4.*The rod 6 en aged hol sI the thereof provided with a is suspended a coil spring l2. the lower end of the coil member 13, which is adapted' to engage with the springs, slats or any other part of the ed to securely hold the 4same 1n position. Mounted upon the coil spring 12 is a. rubber `tubing 14 which is adapted toinclose the coil spring preventing the sam'e from rubbing' against the frame of the bed frame Will not become scratched or marred he constant friction of the spring. From the above description it Will be readily apparent that my .improved bed clothes holder, may be ulclrly and readily applied to the bed clot ing or easily removed therefrom.

In the application of my improved holder, the hook 13 is engaged with the springs or any other suitable art of the bed frame and the bed clothing which is to be held in place is'arranged between the longitudinal bars 2 and the binding rod 6, said rod being yieldheld into frictional engagement with .the clothing by means ofthe coil silrin` 5 8. From this it wil he seen that the device is extremely elicent in its operation', simple in construction and can be nianufac cost.

`While I have shownV and described the low throughout its entire length so thatthe ends of the spring 5 may be readily inserted thereinA and secured in any suitable manner.

of construction and in the proportions may The opposite end of the rod is provided with ured at a comparatively loir-' position'.

preferred form of my invention, itwill bek obvious that various changes in the-details 11g` invention into practice without sacrificing any of the novel features or departing from the'scope of the appended claim.

A device ot' tlie class described including a frame, comprising spaced longitudinal bars, a cross bar integrally connecting one end of said bars, a curved bar connecting the other ends of said longitudinal bars, a coil spring mounted upon the first transi rsel bar, a binding rod having one end secured l to the ende of said coil spring and a loop i carried by the opposite end of said frame and adapted to engage the other end of the rod toy yieldingly the rod and the frame. l

In testimony whereof I hereunto aix my signature in the presence of two Witnesses.
