'EMIL EULRIGH AND EDWARD I). msn, or ANACONDA, MONTANA.

ATH-run FOOT.

Specification of Letters Patent.

' Patented Dec. 1, 1914.

Application filed May 13, 1914. Serial No. 838,226.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, EMIL F. 'ULRICH and EDWARD D. RAsn, citizens of the United States of America, residing at Anaconda,

in the county ofwDeerlodge and State of Montana, have invented certain new and useful Improvementsin Bath-Tub Feet, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings.

This invention relates to improvements in bathtub-feet; and an object of this invention is to provide a bathtub-foot which will be readily adjustable and which will remain in adjusted position.

Another object of this invention is to provide an adjustable bathtub-foot which may be adjusted without raising the bathtub from the floor and which will not by loss of adjustment bring unlooked-for stresses upon the waste and supply pipes leading from and to the bathtub.

A third object of this invention is to provide an adjustable bathtub-foot which will be firm and not shaky and which will therefore furnish a firm and solid support for the bathtub.

1 In'the drawings illustrating the principle of this invention and the best mode now known to us of applying that principle, Figure 1 is an elevation of a bathtub-foot the lower portion of which is broken away to illustrate the interior construction; and Fig. 2 is a section on the line AA of The lower portion a of the bathtub-foot b is segmental in shape and is formed in its lower end with a threaded hole 0 in which is screwed a post dthe cylindrical surface e of which is threaded and from the bottom of which projects a tooth or prong f. The

upper end of the post (1 is formed with a copies 0! this patent may be obtained for and supply pipes leading from and to the bathtub shall be subjected to no unlookedfor stresses.

Our new bathtub-foot hereinbefore described is simple in construction, comparatively cheap in manufacture and efiicient and durable in operation and use. The post (I can be readily turned to adjust the position of the bathtub-foot; and the set-screw 2' will hold the post in its adjusted position and thereby save the expense of making plumbing repairs.

We claim:

An adjustable bathtub-foot formed with an opening in its side and with a threaded hole in its lower end; a threaded post rotatably mounted in said hole and formed with pry-bar holes in its upper end, said pry-bar holes being accessible through said opening; and a set-screw which is mounted in said foot and arranged to bear against and to lock said post in its adjusted position.

Signed at Anaconda, Montana, this 4th day 01 May, 1914:, in the presence of the two undersigned witnesses.

EMIL F. ULRICH. EDWARD D. RASH.
