ATTORNEY GEORGE HTGREGORY, OF EAST ORANGE, NEW JERSEY.
ADJUSTABLE SLIOWER-SPRAY DEVICE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Jan. 6, 1920.
Application filed August 16, 1919. Serial No. 317,866.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I. Gnome H. GREGORY, a citizen of the United States, residing at East Orange, in the county of Essex and State of New Jersey, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Adjustable Shower-Spray Devices, of which the following is a specification.
The invention relates to bath sprays, and the object of the invention is to provide a simple, easily operated device which may be readily attached to or detached from a faucet or analogous water supply, with means for adjusting the position of the spray-carrier, and so arranged as to permit the spray to be delivered in any direction.
The invention consists in certain novel features and details of construction and arrangement by which the above objects are attained, to be hereinafter described and claimed.
The accompanying drawings form a part of this specification and show preferred forms of the invention as it has been carried out in practice.
Figure 1 is aside elevation of the device attached-to a faucet connection and showing the carrier arranged for vertical adjustment in a bathtub, certain portions being shown in vertical section.
Fig. 2 is a vertical section on an enlarged scale, showing the spray-carrier alone.
Similar letters of reference indicate the same parts in both the figures.
Referring to Fig. 1, A is a bathtub and A a faucet connection thereon which may be as usual, equipped with a downwardly projecting nozzle A fi adapted to receive detachably the lower coupling head D of a flexible hose D. e
B is a clamp adapted to engage the faucet connection A and held in such engagement by thumbscrews B It has an outwardly extending short horizontal arm B from which extends a vertical cylindrical rod or bar B of any desired length serving as a standard.
The spray-carrier C is provided with an opening 0 matching to and receiving the rod 13 on which the carrier slides, and has a setscrew E by which it may be moved vertically on the rod, see Fig. 2, and also partially rotated thereon to adjust the carrier at any height and horizontal angle.
On the carrier is a depending nozzle C adapted to receive detachably the upper suitable spray-head shown as a rose noz-,
Water from the faucet nozzle A flows zle F through the hose D to the carrier and is delivered through the tube F and rose nozzle F The flexible metal tube F is of the wellknown armored type, and in short lengths, as shown 'in the drawings, is sufiiciently stifi to hold an position in which it may be placed, thus 0 ering a simple and efiicient means for permitting the stream or spray from the nozzle F to be directed as desired, and the carrier C affords vertical adjust ment as above described so that the direction of the spray may be varied to suit the requirements of the bather and'also be confined within the area of the bathtub.
' coupling head D of the hose D, and the I The device is readily detached by simply uncoupling the hose D from the faucet nozzle A and slackening the thumbscrews B to free the clamp B from the faucet connection.
I claim 1. In a spraying device of the character set forth, a rod, a clamp thereon adapted to engage a faucet connection and hold said rod vertically, a carrier on said rod having inlet and outlet openings, a hose leading from said faucet connection to said inlet opening, a flexible metal tube connected to such outlet opening, and a delivery nozzle on said tube.
2. In a spraying device of the character set forth, a rod, a clamp thereon adapted to engage detachably the faucet connection of a bathtub and hold said rod vertically, a
4. In a device of the character set forth,'
a rod, a clamp thereon adapted to engage detachably the faucet connection of abathtub and hold said rod vertically, a carrier having inlet and outlet openings and slidably mounted on said rod, a setscrew for 10 holding said carrier in adjustment on said rod, a hose detachably connected to said faucet connection and to such inlet opening, a flexible metal tube connected to such outlet opening and constructed to maintain itself in any desired position, and a delivery nozzle on said tube.
In testimony that I claim the invention above set forth I aflix my signature.
