' SHAMPOO BOARD Filed July 31, 1947 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Patented Oct. 19, 1948 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 1.0 Claims- This invention is directed. to shampoo boards.

The principal'obj ectof this invention is to provide an improved shampoolboard. which is particularly adaptable for use with. a washbasinregardless of the size or shape. of. the washbasin, which may be. readily and securely mountedon the Washbasin to be steady during the shampoo operation, and which may: be readily detached from the washbasin and compactly folded for storage purposeswhennot in use. The shampoo board of thisinvention, whileadaptedfor useby professionals inv beauty parlors, is particularly adapted for home use, especially for. the. purpose of shampooing childrenshair;

In-earrying out this object oftheinventiomthe. shampoo board includes a troughhaving a neckreceiving portion, a bracket adjacent. the. lower end of the trough, andprovided-wlthsuction cup toengage the bowl, portionotthe,washbasin, and a bracketadjacent theneck-receiving portionof. the trough to engage the exterior-portion ofthe washbasin. Thesuction cups readily andsecurely mount the shampoo-board in, the washbasin, and the bracket engaging; the exterior portionof the washbasin, prevents the shampoo board from;

sliding into thewashb'asin in case the suction cups should tend to creep. along thewashbasin dueto pressure against the neck-receiving portion ofjthe trough. The brackets are. preferably pivotally mounted on the trough so thatthey may befol'dedt against the trough for storage purposes. The bracket adjacent the neck-receiving portion of the trough is adjustable: to adaptv the shampoo board to various sizes and shapes of washbasins and to regulate the tilt of the shampoo board.

Further objects of this invention. residein the details of construction of. the shampooboard and the cooperative relationship between the componentparts thereof. v

Other objects and advantages of'this invention will become apparent to those skilled myths-artuponreference to the accompanying specification, claims and drawings, in which-- Figure 1 is a perspective view of theshampoo board mounted on a washbasin and in use;

Figure 2 is aseetionalview through the shampoo board, illustratingthe brackets extended for mounting on the washbasin;

Figure 3. isa sectional view through the shampoo board, showing. the, brackets folded; for storage purposes;

Figure '4 is. a. top. plan. view of; the shampoo board illustrated. in. Eigure 3;: and. T

Figure 5 is an exploded View oi'the. bracket carriedby the shampoo board adjacent, the neckreceiving portion there-OI.

The shampoo board is generally designated at l0. and is adaptedto be mounted. on a Washbasin generally. designated at. I I. .The washbasinmay be of any typesuch as used in bathroom or uch as a kitchen sink.

Thev h mpoo board in includes a ish d. tr u h I2, open at itsl-ower end, having raised. sides l3 andaneck-receiving portion l4. atthe upper end thereof. Thetrou his preferably formed. fr sheetv metal, such as sheet aluminum, and the ed es thereof may be rolled. nto a rim, as indicated at 1.5.

Thelower endof the troughis preferably embossed; at I and the low r edge. of" the trough betwee'nthe embosseddepressions I1 is rolled into a; sleeve 48 for. pivotally receiving abracket l9. Thebracket I9. is, preferably made. from roun aluminum stock, and isprovided' with pivot portions Zllreceivedin the sleeve 8 trougheengaging portions 2| to'bereceivedin the. embosseddepressions 1.1,. bracket portions 22 to extend downwardly underneath the trough, and'a connecting portion 23. Theconnecting portion. 23 of the bracket [9. carries suction cups 24', preferably made of. rubber. In this respect th rubber suction cups may have screw moulded therein to be received in holes in theconnectingportion of th bracket.

The trough I2 is embossedat 26 adjacent the neckrreceiving portion l4, and the embossed depression 26 is provided with a hole 21. Abracket 2.8 1s adapted to be pivotally carriedv inthe depression 26 and, in this respect, the bracket is provided with a sleeve portion 29, provided'with an elongated slot 30: for registerin with the hole 21., A bar; 3| is adapted to be received inthe sleeve portion. 29- and is provided with a tapped hole 32 registering with the slot 30 and the-hole 21; A screw 83, provided with a suitable knurled head, extends through the hole 21* and the slot 30 intothe tapped hole 32, whereby the bracket 28 is pivotally mounted in the embossed'depression 26; By loosening the screw. 3.3. the bracket may be. pivoted. to any desired; position, and. by tightening the screw. .33, the bracket may be clamped in thedesired position,

When, theshampoo board isnot in use. andis stored away,thebracket I 9.. is; folded against the h. and the bracket 28 is. likewisefolded against. the trough. l2, as is indicated inFig, 3. Thus, the dimensions of the shamp o board. are

maintainediat-a minimum sothatit may be on-- veniently stored when notin use.

washbasin to position the shampoo board in the desired position and to prevent the shampoo board from sliding into the washbasin should creepage of the suction cups 24 occur as a result from pressure applied to the shampoo board at the neck-receiving portion thereof.

shampoo board and hence the proper elevation of the neck-receiving portion from the floor are obtained, and the shampoo board is adapted to be utilized with varying types and sizes of washbasins.

In the use of the shampoo board, the neck of the person whose hair is being shampooed, is placed in the neck-receiving portion Hi thereof, as is illustrated in Fig. 1. Because the shampoo board is readily adaptable to different sizes and types of washbasins, is readily adjustable as to tilt, is readily mounted and removed, and is readily stored away when not in use, it is particu larly adaptable for home use and especially in the shampooing of children's hair.

While for purposes of illustration one form of this invention has been disclosed, other forms thereof may become apparent to'those skilled in the art upon reference to this disclosure, and, therefore, this invention is to be limited only by the scope of the appended claims and prior art.
