FLEXIBLE THERMOMETER SUPPORT Filed Dec. '6, 1943 L l i, L 'l J; J\ J Patented Sept. 5, 1944 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

FLEXIBLE THERMOMETER SUPPORT Thomas F. Saifady, Detroit, Mich.

Application December 6, 1943, Serial No. 513,048

2 Claims.

several nursing bottles, the strap having a pocket in which is, disposed a metal thermometer.

In each case, there is a hot mass; this may be the water ID in the hot water bottle II, or it may be the nursing bottle l2, or the group [4 of nursing bottles I5; the hot mass is surrounded by a flexible article which may be the hot water bottle II or the straps l6|1. The article itself, whether it be a hot water bottle ,or a strap, is formed with a pocket 2| having an inturned bead 22 seating in a groove 23 of a metal casing thermometer 24, to hold the thermometer in place in the pocket without the aid of any external fastening means. In each case, the back wall 25 of the pocket, which separates the casing from the hot mass, is extremely thin to facilitate heat transfer from the hot mass to the casing.

The function of the metal thermometer is, of course, obvious; it registers the temperature of the hot mass separated from it by the thin back Wall 25 of the pocket 2|.

The straps |-6|'l function to hold the thermometer 24 in place against the hot mass, the bottle I2, or the bottles I5. The strap l1, however, has the added function of holding a number of bottles l5 in a unit or group I4, so that they may be heated as a unit and their temperature registered as a unit.

Now, reference should be had to the claims which follow.

I claim:

1. A flexible band made of elastic material adapted to embrace a container, said band having a pocket provided with an inturned bead, and a thermometer within the pocket having a casing with a peripheral groove cooperating with the inturned bead to hold the thermometer therein, the back wall of the pocket being thin relative to the thickness of the remainder of the band to facilitate heat transfer to the casing.

2. A flexible band, made of elastic material adapted to embrace a container, said band having a pocket provided with an inturned bead, and a thermometer within the pocket having a casing cooperating with the inturned bead to hold the thermometer therein, the back wall of the pocket being thin relative to the thickness of the remainder of the band to facilitate heat transfer to the casing.
