1,602,305 E. HELM I BED COVERING HOLDER Filed July 1, 1 926 Patented Oct. 5, 1926.
EEASMUS HELM, or 3300mm, NEW YORK.
Application filed July 1, 1925. Serial No. 119,952.
This invention relates to bed covering v holders.
. user in the event of accidental unfastening of the safety pins.
It is another object of the present invention to provide an exceedingly simple, durable, eiiicient and inexpensive device Which may be readily applied to the bed covering at any point or at various points, for the purpose of preventing the dislocation in I part or entirely of the bed clothing with relation to the bed.
-With the above and other objects in View, the invention consists in the construction and novel combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings and pointed out in the claims hereto appended, it being understood that various changes in the form, proportion and minor details of construction, within the scope of the claims, may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention or sacrificing any of the advantages thereof.
In the drawings Fig. l is a top plan view of the invention showing its application;
Fig. 2 is a sectional view taken longitudinally through the holder;
Fig. 3 is a top plan view of the button used with the holder; and
Fig. 41 is a transverse sectional view of the button showing the application of the loop of the holder to the button to secure the covering.
Referring now more particularly to the accompanying drawings, the reference character 5 indicates a portion of a bedstead and 6 indicates a blanket or other bed covering which is secured against accidental removal from its normal position through the instrumentality of my improved holder, indicated generally by the reference character A.
The holder consists preferably of a narrow elastic or other flexible strip 7 provided with pairs of perforations 8 and at one end having a loop 9 having a contracted outer end adapted to fit over a removable button 1O applied to the under side of the covering 6 so that the covering at the pointof connection of the loop 9 with the button may envelope or embrace the button as the contracted outer end of the loop 9 is drawn over the button in a manner which is readily understood.
To fasten the holder to the bedstead, I provide tie cords or the like, 11 and 12. These tie cords have their inner ends passed through corresponding perforations 8 in the strip 7 and tied therein, as at 13 and 14, respectively. The outer ends of these tie elements embrace a part of the bedstead and are knotted as at 15, whereby a ready application of the holder to the bedstead and covering may be effected and whereby also a ready disconnection of the holder from the bedstead may be made in order to remove the covering. While the holder has detachable connection with the covering 6 it is clear that by unfastening the tie elements 11 and 12 at the knotted end 15 the poses of illustration, it is understood that as many of these holders may be employed as may be desired, and it is believed that the illustration is sufficient to show the application of the holder and from the di closure made it isclear that an inexpensive holding device is produced for the purpose hereinbefore stated and one which may be easily and readily applied or removed, and which is purchasable at. relatively small expense and usable without danger of injury to the user. i
The spaced pairs of perforations 8 permit of adjustment of the elements 11 and 12 because the inner ends'thereof may be secured interchangeably in the different pairs of perforations.
What is claimed is I 1. A bed covering holder comprising an elastic strip provided with spaced pairs of perforations and at one end having a loop to engage a button applied to the covering, and flexible:lnezinsedapted to embrace a; part of bedstead and including ends passed through pairs of perforations of the said strip interchangeably and knotted to prevent Withdrawal from the perforations, whereby to secure the covering to the bedstead. I p 7 A bed covering holde'r comprising 51 1i elastic strip provided With perforations and at one end having a loop to engage a button adapted to be applied to the covering, and tie elements passed through the perforations and tied at their inner ends to the strip and adapted to be passed around a part of a bedstead and tied together, whereby to secure the covering to the bed.
Intestimony whereof I have hereunto set my hrid.
