SAUL ROZENE, OF BRIDGEPO'RT, CONNECTICUT, ASSIGNOR TO CANFIELD RUBBER COMPANY, OF BRIDGEPORT, CONNECTICUT, A CORPORATION OF CONNECTI- CUT.

BAG AND CLOSURE THEREFOR.

Specification of Letters ratent. Patented Oct. 14:, 1919.

Application filed January 20, 1919. Serial No. 272,014.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, SAUL ROZENE, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of Bridgeport, countyof Fairfield, and State of Connecticut, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Bags and Closures Therefor, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

My invention relates to improvements in bags and closures'for the same, and is primarily intended as an improvement in ice or hot water bags, although the bag, and especially the closure, can be used for other purposes. Ice and hot water bags especially are generally made with metallic nozzles or filling parts, which are open to serious obj ections. From a structural point of view the nozzles are not easily applied, and they are quite likely to work loose or break away so that the bag will leak around the nozzle, and when used the cold or hot metallic part is likely to come in contact with the person to whom the bag is applied, much to his discomfort. Furthermore if the bag is used as an ice bag it is difficult to fill it through the ordinary nozzle. My invention is intended to overcome these difficulties and produce a simple form of bag and closure in which a relatively wide mouth of flexible material, generally the same material as the rest of the bag, is used, so that in the case of ice or other material the filling is easily accomplished as the ice can be shoveled or scooped easily into the Wide mouth of the bag. While the mouth can be of any width, it may if desired be made substantially the full width of the bag, this rendering filling very easy. Another and important advantage of this structure of the mouth portion is that when the bag is filled, the flexible mouth portion an be rolled up thus effecting a tight seal, and it can be held in the rolled or closed position by suitable fasteners as hereinafter described. This form of closure as it is simple and inexpensive and effects a tight seal, can be used as a bag closure for many other purposes. The bag embodying my improvement can be made in any desired shape so as to fit different parts of the body, as for instance the head or limbs, and I provide it with means for fastening the bag on the particular portion of the body desired. These and other advantages will appear more fully from the description which follows.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in which similar reference characters indicate corresponding parts in all the views- Figure l is a perspective view showing the application of the bag to the head of a patient.

Fig. 2 isa broken detail plan of one form of the bag with the mouth closed.

Fig. 8 is a side elevation of the bag with the mouth portion open and extended.

Fig. 4 is a longitudinal section of the structure shown in' Fig. 3.

Fig. 5. is a perspective view showing the application of another form of the bag to the arm of a patient.

Fig. 6 is a broken plan view of the form' of bag shown in Fig. 5, with the mouth closed.

Fig. 7 is a side elevation of the structure shown in Fig. 6.

Fig. 8 is a broken plan view of the bag shown in Figs. 6 and 7 but with the mouth portion open and extended, and V Fig. 9 is a longitudinal section of the bag shown in Fig. 8.

The bag embodying my improvement can obviously be made in a great variety of shapes and for many different purposes, but I have shown two forms of the bag by way of example to bring out clearly the object and use of the invention.

As shown in Figs. 1 to f the bag 10 is especially adapted for use as a head bag, though it can be used for other purposes, and the bag 10 is of elliptical shape and has leading from the top side and connecting therewith a flexible mouth portion 11, the whole being, as will be understood, of waterproof material, and the bag can be filled through this wide mouth portion. The width of the mouth portion can naturally be made as desired, but it is better to have it pretty nearly as wide as the body portion of the bag, and if the bag is used for an ice bag the ice can be quickly and easily put in through this wide mouth portion. When the bag is to be sealed this mouth portion is simply rolled up and an air tight and water tight seal is thereby efiected. Various means can be used obviously for holding the mouth po-rtion rolled and prevent" it' from loosening up so as to spill the contents of the bag, and I have'shown an approved andeflicient i fastening means however," limiting'the invention to the form of fasten ing. As illustrated, snap fasteners are used-- of which one portion 12, in the instance shown the bottom portion, is fastened to the bag 'on' one side 'of the mouth"portion1I,

while the socket members-13 'of the" fasten-i.

of the bag to emphasize the fact that-the'bag canbe madein very many difl'erent shapes. .The bag here shown is easily applicable to the limbs of a patient, and here the b g-10 is simply-"anelon'gated'generallyrectangular bag made-as before of water-proof material, and the mouth portion 11 is "thefull width of the bag. This makes a very sir'nple and efficient bag for the purpose intended, and it will be seen that it can Ybe'filled with the utmostease, and when filled the mouth 'portion l1 canbe'roll'ed up as-alreadydescribed and fastened in the manner indicated Whatever theform' of the-bag it can be readily applied and held iir'place on-the bodyof a patient. For'instancein Figs. 1 to 4: I haveshown theihead bag 10=providd with a strap-'14 having-ea bucklexlo'atone In Figs. 5 to 9 'I have shown-another form 'canbe" applied to page for other 1 purposes.
