Oct. 3, 1950 c. c. SAUNDERS CONTAINER SUPPORT Filed July 12, 1948 Patented Oct. 3, 1950 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 1 This invention relates to holders or supports for containers such as Thermos bottles and the like, and in particular includes a support in which a container may be strapped, and which may be held by hand or supported on a belt so that the container may be carried particularly in streetcars, buses, subways, taxicabs, and the like, wherein the hands may be free to remove a ticket or change from 'a purse or handbag, or to support the carrier thereof;
The purpose of this invention is to provide a support for containers and the like, so that the container may be supported from a belt or other wearing apparel, and in which the container may readily be removed therefrom or replaced there-f in.
Various devices have been provided for supporting bottles, cans, and other containers from a belt, strap, or other device, and whereas these devices are adapted for a particular use, it has been found desirable to provide a support that is adjustable for containers of different sizes, and that may be carried by a handle, or that may be supported by placing a belt through the handle.
The object of this invention is, therefore, to provide means for forming a support that may readily be snapped over or secured around a container, and that may be removably mounted on a belt or the like, whereby the container may be supported from the belt for carrying.
Another object of the invention is to provide a support for holding objects by which the objects may be carried, with the hands of the carrier free.
A further object of the invention is to provide an adjustable support for containers and thelike, which is of a simple and economical construction. I
With these and other objects and advantages in view, the invention consists of the new and useful combination, construction, and arrangement of parts as hereinafter more fully described, set forth in the claim appended hereto, and disclosed in the accompanying drawings forming part hereof, wherein:
Figure 1 is a plan view of the holder.
Figure 2 is a view showing a side elevation, illustrating a container secured in the holder, and showing a belt passing through a loop at the side of the holder in dotted lines.
Figure 3 is a cross section through the lower part of the holder taken on line 3-4 of Figure 2.
Figure 4 is a prospective view looking toward the front of the holder, with a container shown therein in dotted lines.
Referring now to the drawings, wherein like reference characters denote corresponding parts, the container support of this invention includes a strap 10, the upper end of which is bent over and downwardly to form a loop II, and the lower end of which is extended at right angles to form a base i2, with an arm l3 at the outer end, and the strap is provided with bands I4 and I5, having snap fastener elements for adjustably connecting the ends thereof.
The strap H] extends substantially straight upwardly from the base [2 toa point It, where it is bent over to form the loop II, and the end I! is extended and secured against the strap l0,
through the lower band l5, as shown in Figure 2. The band I4 is secured to the upper part of the strap H] at the point [8.
The free ends of the bands 14 and I5 are provided with fastener elements It and 21), respectively, and by providing a series of elements as shown in the drawings, the size of the bands may be adjusted to hold containers of different diameters. These straps may also be bent to conform to containers of different shapes, and the free ends thereof may be held together in any manner or by any means.
With the parts arranged in this manner, the lower end of a container'2l may be inserted in the base of the support and the bands snapped around the intermediate part thereof, so that the container is substantially positively secured in the support. With the container held in this manner, the loop I I may be placed over a belt as indicated by the numeral 22, and the container may be carried at the back of a person or at any suitable point, so that it may be conveniently carried in streetcars, subways, andthe like, or it may be used by electricians in climbing a pole,
- or by workmen on a ladder or the like.
It will be understood that other modifications may be made in the design and arrangement of the parts without departing from the spirit of the invention.
What is claimed is:
In a container support, the combination which comprises a U-shaped'bar of flat rigid material having a short leg and an upwardly extended leg with the upper end of the said extended leg extended outwardly and downwardly with the lower end thereof secured to the lower part of the upwardly extended leg providing a handle, a lower band secured to the upwardl extended leg between the outer surface thereof and thelower end of the outwardly and downwardly extended part thereof, means securingthe outer part of said lower band'to the upper end of the short leg of the U-shaped bar, an upper band secured to the said upwardly extended leg and extended outwardly in a plane parallel to the plane of the lower band and axially aligned with the said lower band, and a plurality of fasteners in each of said bands for adjusting the sizes thereof.
