Application filed April 2, 1926. Serial No. 99,200.

My invention relates to a new and useful improvement in a bed partition, and has for its object the provision of a partition for separating the heads of sleepers in a bed so that one person sleeping with another may not breathe into the face of the other person or into the immediate region of the other persons nose or mouth.

Another object of the present invention is the provision of a partition of this class which will be simple in structure, economical of manufacture and highly efficient in use.

Another object of the invention is the provision of a device for preventing the spreading of diseases between persons occupying the same bed.

Other objects will appear hereinafter.

The invention consists in'the combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter described and claimed.

The: invention will be best understood from a reference to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification, and in which Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the invention showing a bed in fragmentary perspective to which the invention is applied.

Fig. 2 is a side elevational View of the invention.

Fig. 3 is a top plan view of the invention.

Fig. 4 is a fragmentary sectional view of the invention taken on substantially line 4-4 of Fig. 3.

Fig. 5 is a fragmentary sectional view taken on substantially line 55 of Fig. 2.

The invention is adapted for use with a bed 9 having springs and mattress placed thereon in the usual manner. tion comprises a base 10, which tapers toward one end 11, in which is formed .a groove 12, in which may be engaged cord or other securing means for securing the base 10 to the springs of the bed by tying, or in The wider end of the base 10 is embraced by a U-shaped clip 13 and threaded into an opening formed in the U-shaped clip 18 and the base 10 at its larger end is an upright or support 14, having the longitudinally extending keyway 15 formed therein.

The partition proper comprises a plate or shielding member 16, carrying the eyelet 17 adapted for the reception of the upright or The invensupport 1 1-. A reinforcing strap 18 is secured to the plate 16 and extended around the loop 17, and carries a set screw 19 having the wing nut 20 mounted thereon. The arrangement is such that when the upright 14 is received in the eyelet 17, the set screw 19, which threads through the reinforcing strap 18 and through the loop l7, may be engaged in the groove 15 for locking the plate 16 in fixed vertical relation to the support 14. In this way the location of the plate 16 on the support 14 may be adjusted to accommodate mattresses and bed clothes and the like of varying thicknesses.

A cross head 21 is mounted on the base 10 and projects outwardly from opposite sides thereof.

It is apparent that the base 10 and the cross head 21, when placed beneath the mattress or covers, will serve to prevent a tilting of the support 14, legs 22 being mounted on the cross head to retain the device in proper position. f

The partition forming plate 16 may be swung out of operative position so as to substantially completelyclear the bed when the bed is not occupied as is clearly shown in dotted lines in Fig. 1.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred form of structure, I do not wish to limit myself to the precise form of structure shown, but desire to avail myself of such variations and modifications as come within the scope of the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Let- Y ters Patent is:

l. A bed partition of the class described comprising: a base; a cross head at one end of said base; a U shaped clip embracing said cross head and mounted on one end of said base for binding said cross head and said base in fixed relation; a supporting standard threaded into said clip and projecting upwardly from said base; a partition forming member mounted on said supporting member swingably and axially movable; and means for locking said partition forming member in fixed relation to said supporting member.

2. A bed partition of the class described comprising: a base having a groove formed at one end and adapted for positioning between the mattress and a bed spring with which used, said groove affording means for engaging a fastening cord; a cross head mounted on said base adjacent one end; a U 5 shaped clip embracing said cross head and said end of said base for binding. the same together; legs projecting downwardly from said cross head; a supporting standard pro jecting upwardly from said base; and a partition fanning member mounted on said supporting member.

In testimony whereof I have signed the fomgoing' JOHN PEJKA
