Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Mar. 2, 1920.
Application filed May 13, 1914. Serial No. 838,333.
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, MICHAEL F. FISHER, a citizen of the United States, residing at 473 Morris St., Albany, in the county of Albany and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety Attachments, of which the following is a specification.
This invention has for its object to provide a safety attachment rimarily designed to prevent a baby from fa ling from a chair, carriage, or bed.
Another object is the provision of a device of this character embodying securing or anchoring members adapted to be temporaril. or permanently secured to a chair or the like and a body engaging device quickly attachable to and removable from the anchoring members.
With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the novel construction, formation, combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter clearly described claimed, and illustrated in the accompanyin drawings, in which:
%igure 1 represents a front elevation partly broken away, of the complete safety attachment, the parts being shown in extended or inoperative position, and
Fig. 2 represents a front elevation of the safety attachment applied to use.
Referring to the drawing in detail, wherein similar reference numerals designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, the numeral 5 indicates the belt, one of the free ends of which is formed with a plurality of reinforced eyes 6, adapted to cooperate to provide an adjustable connection between the ends with a buckle 7. A loop 8 is preferably secured to the end of the belt 5, carrying the buckle 7, for confining the free opposite end of said belt. Adjacent the medial portion of the belt 5, a pair of shoulder engaging straps 9 are secured, and cross at 10, the point of crossing of the straps being secured. The free ends of the straps 9 are provided with a plurality of reinforced eyes adapted to cooperate with buckles 11 secured to the belt 5 adjacent the free-ends of the latter.
Between the straps 9 and the buckles 11,
leather loops 12 are secured to the belt 5, and carry metallic rings 12 which latter are removably secured to the anchoring devices of the attachment bysnap hooks 13. Anchoring straps are secured at their central portions to the outer ends or shanks of the snap hooks 13, and each of said straps 14; is provided at one end with a plurality of reinforced eyes adapted to cooperate with a buckle 15, secured to the opposite end. A metallic loop 16 is slidably positioned over the anchoring straps 14 on either side of the belt 5, and is adapted to prevent the snap hook 13 from slipping off. Links 18 receive the straps 14 and the eyes 19 carry threaded shanks 20 adapted to be secured in the wood work of a chair, carriage or the like.
In use, the belt 5 is positioned around the waist of the child, as clearly illustrated in Fig. 2, and the shoulder strap 9 positioned over the shoulders and secured in the buckles 11. The attachment is secured to a chair or the like 20 by the straps 14, or if desired, may be permanently secured thereto by securing the threaded shanks 20 of the eyes 19 in the object 20, as will be understood When it is desired to move the child without first disengaging the belt 5 and shoulder straps 9, the body engaging portion of the attachment may be quickly detached from the anchoring ends thereof by disengaging the snap hooks 13 from the loops 12. It is clearly evident when this attachment is operatively positioned, that it is impossible for the child to climb or fall from the chair or other object 20' in which it is placed.
What I claim is 1. A safety attachment comprising a body encircling belt, 100 s slidable on said belt, rings pivoted to sa s1 loops, snap fasteners connected to said r gs, looped anchoring straps slidably connected to the snap fasteners and having their ends detachably and adjustably connected, a ring slidably mounted on one member of each of said anchoring straps, eyes connected to the last named rings, and threaded shanks formed on said eyes and adapted to be threaded into an object.
2. A safety attachment comprising a body encircling belt, loops slidable on the belt In testimony whereof I afiix my signature from the front to the rear thereof, rings pivin presence of two witnesses.
