NURSING BOTTLE HOLDER Filed Sept 21, 1927 Bard WITNESS: ATTORNEY Patented Nov. 5, 1929 BYRD r. KAUFFMAN, or natth'siowit, transients-rm NURsING-Bor'rtit "HoLbn'R Application filed September 21-, serial no. 221,011.

This invention relates to holders for nursing bottles and the like to retain the same in a desired regulated position.

An object of the invention comprehends a gripping element for a bottle.

Another object contemplates a clamping member adapted to regulate the area of the gripping element.

A further object of the invention consists of adj ustably mounted bar members to facilitate the supporting of the gripping element at a desired position.

An additional object of the invention embodies a swivel joint to permit tilting of the bottle whereby the contents thereof may be readily dispensed.

WVith the above and other objects in view,

the invention further consists of the follow-,

ing novel features and details of construction, to be hereinafter more fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing and pointed out in the appended claims.

In the drawing:

Figure 1 is a perspective of the invention while in use.

Figure 2 is a transverse sectional view taken through the clamping member and gripping element. I

Figure 3 is a sectional view taken on line 33 of Figure 1.

Referring to the drawing in detail, wherein like characters of reference denote corresponding parts, the reference character 10 indicates a standard adapted for reception within a sleeve member carried by an attaching plate 12 which may be suitably connected with a portion of a crib or carriage, as best illustrated in Figure 10f the drawing.

A set screw 13 carried by the sleeve 11 is adapted for biting engagement with the standard 10 to hold the same at a desired height.

An offset arm 14 carried upon the upper end of the standard 10 is telescopically associated with a tubular member 15 which is also provided with a set screw or thumb adjusting screw 16 for lateral adjustment. I

The opposed end of the tubular member 15 terminates to provide a depending portion 17 adapted for threaded connection with a retain a ball member 20 the'rebetween.

or a gripping element 28,

nippte 18 which is in turn inwardly bent at thep'eriphery thereof, as indicated at 19, to A compression spring 21 interposed between the ball member 20 and the ad acent end of the depending portion 17 of the tubular member 15 is adapted to restrict movement of the ball 20 when regulated as to tension by the threading of the nipple 18 np'on'said depending portion. The clamping member, as mentioned in the foregoing, consists of 'eomplern'ental sections 22 a'nd23 respectively; the former having connection with the ball 20 through the instrumentality of a'stu'b'shaft 24.

The adjacent faces of the sections are provided with tongues '25 extended as continuations of curved enlargements 26 and which when adapted for interfitting engagement closely resemble that an oblong wrip in cross section. An adjusting screw '27 being passed through the tongues of the sections to suitably clamp and anchor the "extremities preferably termed of a "length of fabric to 'fr-ictiona'l ly engage a bo'ttle in the manner as best illustrated in Figure -1 of the drawing.

From an inspection of the iastmenti'oned figure the device may be regulated as't'o height when the'standard 10 is slided within a sleeve members 11 andjheld in an adjustedp'osition by the set screw 13. Lateral adjustmentmay be effected through the offset extremity '14 of the standard and the tubular member 15.

while universal ad ustm 'n t to'the bottle per sem'aybe'executedthroughthe swivel connection of the clamping members with the de pending portion 17 of the tubular member.

Although I have shown and described the invention as being primarily adapted for use in the holding of nursing bottles and the like, it is to be understood that I do not limit my self to the embodiment of the invention shown but that the device may be effectively employed for holding test tubes and other vials for research work.

The invention is susceptible of various changes in its form, proportions and minor details of construction, and the right is here- V in reserved to make such changes as properly fall within the scope of the appended claims.

Having thus described the invention, what is Claimed is 1. A bottle holder comprising an adjustably mounted standard having an olfset extremity upon the upper end thereof, a tubular member telescopically associated for lateral adjustment upon the offset extremityof the standard, a depending portion carried upon the opposed end of the tubular member having connection with a nipple. a ball member provided with a stub shaft having universal connection between the nipple and depending portion, a clamping member carried by the shaft, and a bottle gripping element adjustably connected with the clamping member.

2. A bottle holder comprising an adjustably mounted standard having an offsetextremity upon the upper end thereof, a tubu lar member telescopically associated for lateral adjustment upon the offset :gtremity of the standard, a depending portion carried upon the opposed end of the tubular member having connection with a nipple, a ball member provided with a stub shaft having universal connection between the nipple and depending portion, a clamping member composed of complemental sections. having connection with the stub shaft, :1 bottle gripping element, and the ends thereof adjustably'held between the adjacent faces of said sections.

3. A bottle holder comprising an adjustabiy mounted standard having an offset eX- tremity upon the upper endthereof,.,a tubular member telescopically associated for lateral v ad ustment upon the-offset extremity of; the

standard, :1 depending portion carried upon the opposed end of the tubular member having connection with provided with a stub shaft having universal connection between the nipple and depending portion, a clamping member composed of complemental sections, tongues and enlarged portions forming the interiittingfaces of the sections as suspendedfrom the stub shaft, and a bottle gripping element consisting of a strip having the extremities thereof fric-. tionally cngagedbetween' the lnteriittingfaces of the sections of the gripping element.

In testimony whereof I afiix mysignature. v
