M. T. JONES.

MATTRESS HOLDER. APPLICATION FILED SEPT. 25, 1920.

mm m N N UNITED STATES MARIANA T. JONES, OF BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS.

MATTRESS-HOLDER.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Mar. 8, 1921.

Application filed September 25, 1920. Serial No. 412,657.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, MARIANA T. Jones, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Boston, Jamaica Plain, in the county of Suffolkand State of Massachusetts, have invented a new and Improved Mattress- Holder, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

This invention relates to improvements in mattress holders, and more particularly to improved attachments for spring bodies, an object of the invention being to provide means on a spring bed which will hold the mattress against slipping thereon and which, when the mattress is removed, can bemoved out of the way so as to closely fit the spring bed.

A further object is to provide on a spring or the spring of a bed, and particularly at the head and foot thereof, movable devices which, when in one position, will operate to hold the mattress in proper position on the spring preventing slipping of the mattress which is apt to occur and particularly where the footboard or headboard of the bed is bowed.

With these and other objects in view the invention consists in certain novel features of construction, and combinations and arrangements of parts as will be more fully hereinafter described and pointed out in the claim.

In the accompanying drawings- Figure 1 is a perspective view illustrating one form of my invention and showing the devices in position to prevent longitudinal movement of the mattress on the spring.

Fig. 2 is a perspective view illustrating a modification.

Fig. 3 is a perspective view illustrating another modification.

Fig. 4. is an enlarged view in section on the line 44 of Fig. 3.

Fig. 5 is an enlarged view in section on the line 55 of Fig. 1.

1 represents an ordinary spring bed consisting of end bars 2, 2, and longitudinal bars 3 for supporting a spring 4, the latter connected to the end bars 2, 2, as is common in the art.

5 represents a mattress which may be of any ordinary type, either in one or more sectlons, and adapted to be supported on the spring 4:.

Referring particularly to Fig. 1, it will be noted that I provide brackets 6 which are secured to the end bars 2 of the spring bed 1 and hingedly connect to said brackets mattress holding plates 7. A convenient manner of hinging these plates 7 to the brackets 6 is to provide perforated ears 8 at the side edges and lower portions of the plates '1 and locate these perforated ears in alinement with a bearing sleeve 9 on the bracket 6 and position a hinge pin 10 through the bearing sleeve and perforated ear. This manner of hingedly connecting the plates permits said plates to be swung down on top of the end bars 2 when the mattress is not in place so that the plates will not offer an obstruction or be liable to become broken while transporting the spring bed.

When it is desired to hold the mattress against slipping, the plates are swung to upward or vertical posltion and, due to the shoulders of the hinge connection, are maintained in vertical position and located against the ends of the mattress so as to hold the latter against slipping on the spring bed.

In Fig. 2 I illustrate a modification in which I secure bars 11 to the hinged plates 12, corresponding to the hinged plates 7 above described. These bars 11 extend the full width of the spring frame and have inwardly projecting fingers 13 at their'ends which engage the side edges of the mattress and hold the mattress against lateral as well as longitudinal movement.

In Figs. 3 and 1, I illustrate another modification in which I provide plates 14 pivotally connected to the end bars 2 by means of bolts or rivets 15 so that these plates may be located in a vertical position or swung down beside the end bars as shown.

It is obvious that other forms of device might be utilized as a means on the spring frame for holding the mattress against accidental displacement and while I have illustrated what I believe to be a preferred embodiment of my invention, I would have it understood that I do not limit myself to the precise details set forth, but consider myself at liberty to make such changes and alterations as fairly fall within the spirit and scope of the appended claim.

I claim:

The combination with a spring bed comprising, end bars, longitudinal bars connecting the end bars and a sprin pendently movable mattress holding plates connecting the end bars, of a plurality o fiat inde- 7 pivotally connected to the intermediate por- 10 tions of the end bars, said plates adapted to be swung to a vertical position to prevent longitudinal sliding movement of a mattress, or to be swung to inoperative position with their mattress engaging'faces located 15 against the end bars MARIANA T. JONES.
