BABYS BOTTLE AND NIPPLE.-

Application filed May 9, 1928. Serial No. 276,250.

This invention relates generally to drinking bottles, and has more particular reference to a novel babys bottle and nipple.

The invention has for an object the provision of a device of the class mentioned which is of simple durable construction, desirable and eificient in action, and which can be manufactured and sold at a reasonable cost.

The device proposes the use of a babys bottle arranged for receiving a nipple applied by turning for preventing a straight drawing ofi' thereof. The nipple may be removed by a turning operation, thus preventing the possibility of a baby accidentally removingthe nipple by pulling the bottle while holding the nipple in his or her mouth, and spilling the contents of the bottle. A ring is rotatively mounted on'the neck of the bottle and arranged for advancing against the lower edge of the nipple for locking same against turning, and against removal.

For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following de scription and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawing, forming a material part of this disclosure Fig. 1 is a fragmentary side elevational view of a bottle and nipple constructed according to this invention.

Fig. 2 is a central vertical sectional view thereof.

Fig. 3 is an enlarged detail view of a portion of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the bottle per se.

Fig. 5 is a central vertical sectional view of a nipple of modified form.

Fig. 6 is an enlarged detail fragmentary view of a portion of Fig. 5.

Fig. 7 is a perspective view of a bottle of modified form for adaptation by the nipple shown in Fig. 5.

Fig. 8 is a fragmentary side elevational view of a bottle and nipple constructed according to a modified form of the invention.

Fig. 9 is a similar view of a further modified form.

Fig. 10 is a perspective detail view of the locking ring.

Fig. 11 is a vertical sectional view of the nipple shown in Figs. 1 and 2, and

Fig. 12 is'a similar view of a nipple of modified form for engagement upon the bottle shown in Fig. 7.

The reference numeral 12 indicates generally the body of a babys bottle and 13 the neck thereof. The top portion of the neck is formed with a coarse thread 14 projecting outwards from the surface, and the lower portion is provided with a cast-in stationary ring .15 formed with external threads. A clamp ring 16 threadedly engages the stationary ring 15, and has a serrated top edge 17 A nipple 18 engages upon the neck 13, and has grooves 19 for engaging the coarse thread 14. The lower edge of the nipple is serrated for engagement by the serrations 17 of the ring. Normally the ring 16 is positioned so that these serrations engage each other, and the nipple 18 is locked in place and cannot be drawn off. As shown in Fig. 10, the ring 16 has a lug 19 to which a pivoted catch 20 is connected. The top pointed end of the catch is normally urged'inwards towards the center of the ring for engaging the nipple and holding the ring against rotation, by a spring 1 21 co-axially mounted on the pivot of the catch.

The nipple may be removed by first pressing the lower end ofthe catch 20 inwards for disengaging the pointedend, then rotating the ring 16 for disengaging the serrations, and finally turning the nipple for disengagement from the threads 14.

In Figs. 5 and 6, a nipple 18' is shown, provided with a plurality of pins 22 arranged for simulatinga spiral thread. The lower edge of the nipple is serrated as indicated by numeral 17.

In Fig. 7, the bottle 12' is provided with a neck 13' formed with a soarse thread groove 14 for accommodating the thread formed by the pins 22. Otherwise the construction and operation of. the device is the same as previously described.

In Fig. 8, the nipple 18 is formed with a bayonet slot 23 engaged by a pin 24 projecting from the neck of the bottle for holding the nipple against straight drawing off.

The modified form of the babys bottle illustrated in Fig. 9, discloses a body 12 of triangular horizontal cross-section, provided with a circular neck 13.

While we have shown and described the preferred embodiment of our invention, it is to be understood that we do not limit ourselves to the precise construction herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modlfications coming wlthln thescope of the invention as defined in the appended external threads, a ring threadedly engaging the said ring, and provided with serrations on its to.) ed e for en a in com lementar 23 b C) t) serration on the said nipple for holding purposes. V

2. In a device of the class described, a neck of a bottle, arranged with coarse threads for engagement by a nipple so as to necessitate turning of the nipple to accomplish the engagement, a stationary rin on the neck and formed with external threads, a rin threadedly engaging the said ring, and provided with serrations on its top edge for engaging complementary serration on the said nipple for holding purposes. H

3. In a device of the class described, a neck of a bottle, arranged with thread grooves for engagement by a nipple so as to necessitate turning of the nipple to accomplish the engagement, a stationary ring on -the neck and formed with external threads,

a ring threadedly engaging the said ring, and provided with serrations on its top edge for engaging complementary serration. on the said nipple for holding purposes.

4. In a device of the class'described, a neck I ofa bottle, arranged for engagement by a I' u= 1- V 5. In adevice of the class described, a neck of a bottle, arranged for engagement by a nipple so as to necessitate turning of the nipple to accomplish the engagement, a stationary ring on the neck and formed with eX- ternal threads, a ring threadedly engaging the said ring, and provided with serrations on its top edge for engagingcomplementary serration on the said nipple for holding purposes and with a lug projecting from its side, and a catch mounted on the lug for holding the movable'ring in engaged position.

6. In a device of the class described, a neck of a bottle, arranged for engagement by a nipple so as to necessitate turning of'the nipple to accomplish the engagement, a stationary ring on the neck and formed with external threads, a ring threadedly engag ing the said ring, and provided with serrations on its top edge for engaging complementary serration on the said nipple for holding purposes and with a lug projecting from its side, and a spring actuated catch mounted on the lug for engagement againstv the nipple to hold the movable ring, in engaged position.

In testimony whereof we have aiiixed our signatures.
