, ments in Bottle-Carriers, of which the following, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, is a specification.
The invention relates to detachable handles or carriers for bottles and similar receptacles, and the object of the improvement is to provide a simple and convenient carrier which may be quickly and easily attached to and detached from the neck of the bottle-or jar and when attached is self looking, that is, the movement of the attaching jaws springs a locking arm into position therebetween so that said jaws are securely locked-in the clamping position upon the bottle neck, yet may be quickly and easily detached therefrom by springing said arm out of the locking position; and the invention consists in the novel features and combinations hereinafter set forth and claimed.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a single bottle carrier in the unlocked or open position; and Fig. 2 is a sidewise elevation of the same in the locked or closed position attached to a bottle neck, the open position being shown in .dotted line. Fig. 3 is an elevation of a modification showing a multiple carrier with the jaws in the closed position upon the necks of the bottles. Fig. 4 is a perspective view of one of the wire parts showing the conformation of the same; andv Fig. 5 is a similar perspective view of the other part, showingthe locking arm extending up from the aw portion.
Like numerals of reference refer to CQI'. responding parts in the several views. i The numeral 10 designates the locking arm portion of the carrier, and the numeral lithe handle supporting portion of the carrier, the parts being preferably made out of heavy wire which will stifliy and firmly hold on the neck of the bottle. v
Thepart 10 is formed with the upwardly extending. arm 12 at one side, though both sides might be extended up in locking arms the same, asthe one shown without departing from my invention, but one locking arm is usually found to be sufficient to firmly eye 18 hold the jaw portions 13 and 14 of the parts 10 and 11 upon the neck of the bottle 15.
The jaws 13 and 14 are bent to fit firmly upon the neck of the bottle or jar 15, clamping upon opposite sides of the same. The ends of the part 11 extend upward from the jaw portion in the handle supporting portions 16, a handle 17 being provided with an opening therethrough into which the two parts 16 may be easily sprung, the spring of the wire holding the oppositely bent extensions 16 firmly in the handle 17.
The two parts 10 and 11 are hinged to one another by means of the oppositely turned eyes 18 in part 11 and the horizontal turns 19v in part 10, sufiicient sidewise play being given in the portions 19 for the looking arm 12 to move sidewise within the upwardly extending part 16, thereby holding said locking arm 12 in either the locked or the unlocked position, as shown in Figs.v -1, 2- and 3, according as the: arm 12 is moved from the locking hooked end 22 to the unlocking bend 23 in the arm 12 in its relation to the wire 16 and against. which it is sprung.
The two parts 10 and 11 are assembled by threading, the part 10 through the journal at one side until it is ready to enter upon the part 19, when the opposite end 19 i of the part 10 enters the opposite journal eye- 18, thereby quickly and easily assembling the two parts 10 and 11 into the hinged relation to one another. The handle 17 is then snapped onto the part 16 thereby COIiIFlGtlngtilB single carrier.
y simple single carrler may be made into a multiple carrier by attaching the upward extensions or bail 16 around a supporting rod or heavy wire 20, which rod 20 preferably-has a handle 21 in .its central portion sothat the bottles supported thereon will be evenly balanced. It is apparent that the locking arms 12 may he snapped'into the open position shown in Fig. 1 for each of the hinged clamping jaws and that the carrier can then 'be placed upon the necks of the spaced bottles 15, after which the jaws 13 and 14 are closed upon the necks of the bottles by simply pressing toward one another, thereby springing the locking arm 12 into the locking position on the bottle necks and all that is necessary .to detach the clamping jaws from the bottle necks is to spring said arm 12 out of the locking positi on into the unlocked position shown in ig. l.
I claim as new 1. A carrier for bottles comprising two parts hinged to one another, a jaw on each of said parts to engage the opposite sides of the bottle neck, a 'handle on one of said parts, and a spring arm on the other part to removably engage said handle portion and lock said jaws on said bottle neck.
2. A carrier for bottles comprising two Wire parts, one of said parts consisting of a jaw and turned eyes and an upwardly extending handle portion,-and the other part consisting of a jaw and two horizontal journal portions to engage in said eyes and an upwardly extending spring lever to removably engage said handle portion and de-- tachably hold said jaws on the neck of said bottle.
3. A bottle carrier comprising two wire parts, one of said parts consisting of a jaw to engage the neck of the bottle and two horizontal journal portions and anvupwardly extending spring arm having a return bend hook'on its upper end, the other part consisting of a jaw to engage the neck of the bottle and two turned eyes hingingly engaged around said journal portions 'a aw on each of said other part and the ends of the wire extending upward and toward one another, a .handle on said ends, said upwardly bent spring arm and hook of the first part to engage one of said upwardly extending handle portions of the second part in a spring lock to hold said jaws on said bottle neck.
4. A multiple bottle carrier comprising a rod, a handle midway of the length of said rod, a series of two part bottle carriers each having one part attached to said rod and a jaw thereon toengage one side of the bottle neck, the other part of each of said two-part of the other 7 carriers hingingly attached to said one part, 7
parts to engage the other side of the bottle neck and thereby hold the bottles between said jaws, and a spring 1%"81 arm on each of said other parts extending up to engage said one part in locking engagement either in the open or closed position for said jaws. In testimony whereof, I have affixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
