Application filed May 10, 1927. Serial No. 190,224.

My invention relates to package carriers ceive the head 12and a narrow slot leading for use on vehicles and other devices and therefrom; A handle 14 is formed on the more particularly to tilting carriers; and the bar 13. The bar 13 is positioned (when the object is to provide a simple attachment to supplemental frame is to be locked thereto) 5 be mounted on vehicles of various types so that head 12 will pass down throughthe which is composed of a' rigid member for. atbar, The bar 13 is then moved to bring the taohing or mounting the attachment and a slot 16 over the head 12. The supplemental. tilting member carried by the rigid member frame will be held securely in place on the for carrying bottles and jars and the like rigid frame. lVhen the supplemental frame for containing liquids and to means for is to be released for tilting purposes, the for holding the bottles and jars safely on bar 18 is'moved longitudinally to bring the the vehicle. Other objects and advantages large part of the slot 16 about the locking will'be fully explained in the following debolt 12. The supplemental frame cantlien scription and the invention will be more par be tilted. Thus a bottle or jar can be ticularly pointedout in the claims. v strapped to the supplemental frame and Reference is had to the accompanying locked in upright position.

hat I claim is 1- 1. A tilting carrier comprising a rigid frame, a tilting frame pivotally connected to one edge of said rigid frame and normally lying thereon, a headed bolt rigid with said tilting frame and depending therefrom, and a locking bar slidably mounted on and connected to said rigid frame and provided with a slot to receive said headed bolt for looking said tilting frame to said rigid frame.

2. A tilting carrier comprising a rigid frame, a tilting frame pivotally connected to one edge of said rigid frame and normally lying thereon and provided with a headed lug depending therefrom, a locking bar slidably mounted on said rigid frame and pro vided with a slot having a Wide portion to receive said lug and a narrow portion for locking said lug for detachably locking said tilting frame to said rigid frame, and loops carried by said tilting frame for use in strapping a bottle or other package to said tilting frame.

3. A tilting carrier comprising a rigid frame provided with upstanding lugs on one side, a tilting frame provided with diagonal members riveted together and pivotally connected to said upstanding lugs, a locking bar slidably mounted on said rigid frame and provided with a locking slot, a headed lug depending from said tilting frame adapted to enter said slot for detachably locking said tilting frame to said rigid frame, loops rigid with said tilting frame, and straps engaging said loops for attaching a bottle to said tiltmg frame.

4. A tilting carrier comprising a rigid frame provided with upstanding lugs on one side, a tilting frame pivotally and detachably connected to said lugs, means for detachably said frames and the package on said tilting frame including a strap attached to said rigid frame and to the package.

5. A tilting carrier comprising a rigid frame, a tilting frame pivotally and detachably connected to one edge of said rigid frame, pads between said frames for prevent ing rattling, means for detachably locking said tilting frame to said rigid frame in operative position, means for securing bottles or other packages to said tilting frame, and a strap for attaching said bottles or packages to said rigid frame.

In testimony whereof, I set my hand, this 5th day of May, 1927.
