Application filed August 25, 1921.

be a full, clear, and exact description ol the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

My invention relates to improvements in screen attachments forbaby carriages and has for its objectto provide an extremely simple, yet a highly eliicient and durable device of this character which may be readily attached and dctach d, opened or closed at will, and manipulated in mimerous ways without interfering with the swinging of the carriage top from one end of the body toward the other.

With the foregoing in view. the invention resides in the novel subject matter hereinafter described and claimed, the descriptive matter being supplemented by the accord panying drawings.

Figure 1 is'a side elevation partly broken away and in section, showing the application of my invention to a baby carriage.

Figure 2 is a vertical longitudinal sectional view.

Figure 3 is a vertical transverse sectional View as indicated by line 33 of Fig. 1.

Figure 4 is an end'view looking in the direction indicated by the arrow i of l? Figure 5 is a horizontal. sectional view on line 55 of Fig. 2.

In the drawings above briefly described, the numeral 1 designates a well known form of baby carriage body having a top 2 which is pivoted at 3 to central. brackets 4. so that it may be swung to any number o'l positions between the ends of the body. The brackets 4 are in the form of open frames and I uti-- lize said brackets in attaching to the carriage.

The numeral 5 designates a base frame which is shaped to correspond to the contour of the upper edge or rim of the body 1 and it will be understood that the shape or said "frame may vary in any desired manner, according to the style carriage on which it is to be used. The frame is preferably of channel form as seen clearly in Figs. 2 and 3 and said frame is here shown as provided with a lining 6 of felt or any other suitable my invention Patented Apr-.18, 1922. Serial No. 495,326.

material, thus preventing injury to the body.

The entire screen is mounted on the base frame 5 and the latter is detachably secured to the body 1 in a novel manner.

The numerals 7 designate a pair of spring arms, both of which are preferably formed from a single length of resilient wire as shown, said arms being secured at their upper ends to the frame 5 while their lower ends are adapted for passage through the brackets 4, said ends being shaped to form shoulders 8 which engage the brackets and prevent removal of the arms until they are sprung toward each other. One pair of the arms 7 is located at each side of the frame 5 and since they engage the central brackets 4, the frame 5 is effectively secured at central points to the body 1 and cannot be dislocated thereon b y the child Within the -:=arriage, the channeled formation of the frame being of course instrumental also in securing it in place.

The screen is of arched formation and preferably consists of relatively fixed and movable sections 9 and 10 respectively, both 01? segmental form and so associated that the section 10 telescopes with the section 9 when it is opened to any extent. The meeting edges of the sections 9 and 10 are provided with suitable bows 11 which may Well have co-acting flanges 12 to form an insecttight seal when the sections are in closed position as shown in Fig. 2. The bow of the movable section 10 is pivotally mounted inany suitable way as indicated at l?) and any adequate means such as the spring catches 14;, may be employed for holding this section in lowered position. Both sections are provided at suitable intervals with arcuate brace bars 15 and the catches 14 may well co-act with a transverse bar 16 secured to certain of the braces 15, said bar 16 being here shown equipped with a handle 17 for raising and lowering movable section 10.

By providing a construction such as that shown or the equivalent thereof, it may be seen that the device may be quickly and easily attached or detached, that the movable section lOmaybe raised or loweredto any desired extent, that when the screen is completely closed, it is impossible for flies,mosquitoes and the like to annoy the occupant of the carriage, and that regardless of the relative positions of the sections 9 and 10, their peripheral curvature is approximately concentric with and spaced inwardly from the are on which the top 2 travels. Thus, the top may be ad justed at Will, regardless of the position to which the movable screen section 10 has been moved.

Since excellent results may be obtained from the details disclosed, these details may be followed if desired. It is to be understood, however, that Within the scope of the invention as claimed numerous changes may be resorted to.

I claim:

1. AlOalOy carriage screen comprising a continuous base frame shaped to conform to and adapted to rest on upper edge of a carriage'body, the lower side of said'frame being channelled to receive the edge of the body and hold the same in proper shape, means for detachably connecting said frame with the body and an arched screen formed of relatively movable sections mounted on said frame.

2. A baby carriage screen comprising a base frame'shaped to conform to and adapted to rest on the upper edge of a carriage body, an arched screen mounted on said the usual supporting brackets of the carriage top and secure said frame detachably in place.

3. A baby carriage screen comprising a base frame shaped to conform to and adapted to rest onthe upper edge of a carriage body, an arched screen mounted on said frame and a pair of spring arms carried by each side of said frame to engage the supporting brackets of the carriage top and secure said frame-detachably in place.

4:. A baby carriage screen comprising a base frame shaped to conform to and adapted to rest on the upper edge of a carriage body, an arched screen mounted on said frame, and latches depending from opposite sides of said frame toengage the usual supporting brackets of the carriage top and secure said frame detachably in place.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
