I Application filed April 1, 1916. Serial No. 88,233.
To all whom/it may concern:
Be it known that I, CARROLH. OTT, a citizen of the United States, residing at J ohnstown, vCambria county, Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Nursing-Bottle Holder, of Y which the following is a full,
clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings,
forming-part of this specification, in. which'- Figure 1 is a side View of adevic'eembodyinyention, showing the parts in one position.
Fig. 2 is .a sectional view showing one of the joints and the attached bottle holdeig difi'erent positions of the latter being shown in dotted lines.
Fig. 4 is a rplan view of the bottle holder.
y invention has relation to a device for holding nursing bottles; and is'designe d to provide a simple and convenient device "which can be readily and quickly attached .to and detached from any suitable-adjacent "support, and by means of which a nursing bottle may be securely held in any desired position. The device is provided with means 4', which may be part of the frame of a bed or crib, a rail or arm of'a chair, or other piece of furniture, or some part of a baby carriage, or any other convenient object. The form of the clamp may also be widely varied. The heel end of the clamp is provided with a socket.5 adapted to be rotatably engaged by a stud 6 on the clamp nember 7; A clamping screw'8 isprovided o secure the adjustment of the stud 6 in' he socket 5. The joint member 7 is shown sibeing in the form of a sleeve or barrel, rithin which is rotatably fitted a sleeve or arrel member 9 on the end of an exten- Zble supporting rod 10.. To permit differ- Fig. 3 is a plan view of one of the joints,
members 14 and 15:
cut angular adjustments of the rod 10, the
joint member'7 has an arcuate slot 11 there? in. The desired adjustment is obtained by means of a clamping screw 12, which engages. the member 8tlirough the slot 11 and glanps against the periphery of the memer r The supporting rod is formed in two'sec tions', one of which is rotatably and telescopically engaged with theother, the desired adjustment being obtained b'y'mea-ns of a clamping screw 13. The other member the extension rod is secured at its outer end to a joint member '14 which is,
shown as "being similar to the joint member 7, and'within' which is rotatably seated an? other joint member 15 which is similar to the member 9. The member 14 is circumferentially' slotted throughout the. greater portion of its periphery to receive a screw 16 which extends diametrically through the The screw is provided at one end with an adjusting nut 17, a
spring 18 being preferably interposed between this nut and the member 14. Pivotally connected to an extension I 19 of the screw 16 is a bottle holderQO which maybe adapted to inthe form of a spring clamp, embrace a bottle in the manner shown. The connection between the holder 20 and the screw extension 19 is preferably formed by means of a screw pivot 21, which also acts as a clamp to secure the'holder in different angular positions with respect to the screw, as illustrated in Fig. 2.
V The rotary connection between the stud 6 and the socket 5 permits the extension rod 10 and its attached parts to be swung into various position's with reference to the support 4. If the clamp 2 is engaged vertically with the support 4 as shown in Fig. 1, then the extension rod 10 may be swung through an entire circle in a horizontal plane. Similarly, if the .clamp be engaged horizontally with the support the extension can be swung through acomplete circle in a vertical plane. The joint between the extension rod" and the clamp formed by the .members 7 and 9 also permits various angular adjustments of the extension rod in a plane at right angles to'that of its swinging movement. The rotary telescopic joint in the extension rod not only permits the distance between the two joints at the respective ends of such rod to be 'widely varied,
but it also permits these two joints to be adjusted in any desired plane with respect to each other. Thus, it will be obvious that instead ofthe two joints being in the same plane as shown in Fig. 1, the joint to which the bottleholder is attached may be turned into a plane at right angles to that of the other joint, or into various other angular The joint at the outer end of the. extension rod permits various angular adjustments of the screw 16; and the pivotal connection of the bottle holder with the extension of this screw gives furparts which I-have herein shown and described, as it is obvious that various changes may be made Within the spirit and scope of the appended claims. .cated, the form of theclamp 2 and of the Thus, as above indibottle holder 20 may be widely changed;
any suit-able form of joints may be used at the ends of the extension rod, and many other changes may be made. I
I claim: 1. A device of the character described, comprising an extenslon rod having oscillating joints at each end thereof, a,\clan1p. connected to one joint, eachof said joints mprising a ring having a peripheral. slot BEST AVAILABLE COP therein and a ring rotatable therein, a screw passing through both of said ring members for securing the joint in position, and a bottle holder connected to the joint opposite the clamp, substantially as described.
2. A device of the character described, comprising an extension rod, means for connecting one end of the rod to a supporting member, a joint on the other end of the rod having two ring members, one within the other, the outer ring member having a peripheral slot,-a clamping screw extending through both-ring members and arranged to secureone ring in its adjusted position with relation to the other ring, and. a bottle holder connected to the end of said screw, substantially as described.
3. A device of the character described,
comprising a two-part extension rod the.
members of which are rotatably and telescopically engaged with each other, an oscillating joint at the outer end of one of the extension rodv members, a clamp rotatably connected to said joint, an oscillating joint at the outer end of the other extension rod member, a supporting device attached to the movable member of said joint, an adjusting device intermediate said clamp and joint and a bottle holder pivotally connected to the said supporting device, substantially as described. i
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand.
