CANOPY FOR BEDS.
Application filed .Tune 23, 1927. Serial No. 200,864.
This invention relates to bed canopies of the type formed of netting, and the general object of the invention is to admit of the canopy being connected to the bedstead so that when it is moved to a position to permit a person to enter the bed, it can be returned to normal position by the person while in a reclining position.
Another object of the invention is to provide the canopy with novel attaching means that can be conveniently connected to the bedstead so as to hold the canopy in applied position.
Other objects will appear as the specification proceeds, reference being had to the accompanying drawing forming a part thereof and in which:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of a bed showing my invention applied thereto.
Figure 2 is a view similar to Figure 1, but shows the canopy in the position to enable a person to enter the bed.
Figure 3 is a front elevation of the means employed to retain the canopy to the head of the bed.
Figure 4 is a side elevation of Figure 3.
Referring more specifically to the drawing, the letter A designates a bedstead having a head portion B and foot portion C.
A canopy is shown overlying the bedstead and consists of top portion 5 and depending side portions 6. The side portions 6 are of sufficient length to completely enclose the sides and head of the bedstead A. I
Elastic strips 7 extend longitudinally of the canopy at the points of connection between the top and side portions 5 and 6 and are secured thereto and have their ends extending beyond the ends of the canopy for connection respectively with the head and foot portions B and C of the bedstead. Those ends of the elastic strip 7 which are located at the foot portion of the bedstead are terminally provided with hooks 8 which detachably engage with loops 9 formed of any suit-' able material and suitably secured tothe foot portion of the bedstead. The ends of strips 7 that are located at the head portion B of the bedstead are provided with attaching elements 10, each of which includes, preferably, three spaced hooks, the intermediate hook facing in the direction opposite to that of the other two. If so desired two or more hooks may be employed instead of three.
The hooks forming each of the attaching elements 10 frictionally and detachably engage around a strip 11 which extends transversely of the head portion B of the bedstead and may be formed of any material desired, such as rope, cord or wire. The strip 11 serves as a track on which the end of the canopy located at the head portion of the bedsteapil may be moved transversely of the bedstea is in the position shown in Figure 2, a person is enabled to enter the bed. After he had I entered, he may slide the canopy to theposition shown in Figure 1, thereby completely enclosing himself with the canopy.
While I have described and shown one form of my invention as applied to ordinary beds, it will be understood that my invention may also be supplied to cots or any form of sleeping equipment.
\Vhat I claim as new is 1. An attachment for beds including a strip for attachment transversely of the head of the bed, an elongated flexible canopy for extending from the head toward the foot of the bed and having depending side walls, elastic strips extendlng longitudinally of the canopy and means for slidably connecting the elastic strips to the transverse strip whereby to admit of the head portion of the canopy being moved transversely of the head of the bed in either direction.
2. An attachment for beds including a strip for attachment transversely of the head of the bed, an elongated flexible canopy for extendingfrom the head toward the foot of the bed, elastic strips extending longitudinally of the canopy, means for slidably connecting the elastic strip to the transverse strip to admit of the head portion of the canopy being moved transversely of the head of the bed and means for detachably connecting the foot portion of the canopy to the foot of the bed.
3. An attachment for beds including a strip for attachment transversely of the head of the bed, an elongated flexible canopy for extending from the head toward the foot of the bed, elastic strips extending longitudinally of the canopy, means for slidably and detachably connecting the elastic strips to the transverse strip to admit of the head portion of the canopy being moved transversely of the head of the bed and means for detach-' of connection between the top and side Walls, ably connecting the foot portion of the canand hook-shaped attaching elements carried opy to the foot of the bed. by the elastic strips and adapted for slidable v 4. A canopy including a, top and dependmovement longitudinally of the transverse 5 ing side walls, a strip adapted for attaehstrip.
