SUPPORT FOR NURSING BOTTLES Filed May 2, 1947 INVENTOR.
ORVILLE J. MILLER BY ATTORNEYS Patented Feb. 20, 1951 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE SUPPORT FOR NURSING BOTTLES Orville J. Miller, Beaumont, Tex.
Application May 2, 1947, Serial No. 745,455
2 Claims. 1
This invention relates to holders or supports, and more particularly to a holder for nursing bottles or the like adapted to be held in conjunction with a searchlight on or adjacent to an infant in such manner as to permit examination of the bottle without disturbing either the bottle or the child.
An object of the invention is to provide an improved form of bottle holder adapted to properly position a nursing bottle so that an infant can readily use same without danger, and also so arranged as to accommodate a flashlight by means of which the progress of the nursing can be observed without disturbing the child.
The invention consists in the novel construction, arrangement and combinations of parts as hereinafter more particularly described.
One sheet of drawings accompanies this specification as part thereof, in which like reference characters indicate like parts throughout.
In the drawings: 7
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the improved holder with a nursing bottle and pocket flashlight in position as same would be used; and
Figure 2 is a similar perspective view of the holder proper without the bottle and minor accessories.
In accordance with present invention the holder proper is preferably constructed from a single piece of resil ent metal rod which is medially bent upon itself, as at the points I-l, to form U-shaped leg, the side members of which 2-2 are arcuately bent and brought together in juxtaposition as at 3-3 to constitute an end portion of a body part. the medial part of which is formed by spreading apart the rods and olfsetting same slightly as by the bends 4-4 and 6-6 to provide paral el spaced res lient gripping members -5 between which can be conveniently inserted a pocket-type of Searchlight L. The other end portion of the body member is similarly formed by brining the two rod portions 'l-l together in juxtaposition and in ali nment with the similar port ons 3-3 at the other end of the body portion. The portions 'l-l are again bent as at 8-8 and extended in divergent directions to constitute angularly disposed U-legs, the sides of which 9 and II, are joined by the bends l0 constituting the feet of these legs.
The outer sides II are crossed at the top as at l2 in aligmnent with the body part of the holder and the end portions are arcuately curved as at l3-l3 to form resilient gripping members adapted to embrace a nursing bottle B.
The portions of the device where the wires 2. are brought into close juxtaposition as between the parts 3-3, 'l-'!, and the crossing point l2, will preferably be secured by solder, cement or welding so as to rigidly associate these parts.
Preferably, a short piece of rubber tube M will be positioned over the arcuate gripping members l3-I3 so as to constitute a circular gripping device.
Conveniently, if desired, ornamental beads 15 can as desired be positioned on the leg members 9 and H to amuse the infant while nursing.
Various modifications in the proportions and precise angles will readily suggest themselves to those skilled in the art, but within the scope of the present invention as claimed.
Having thus fully described my invention, I claim:
1. Supporting device comprising a resilient rod bent to form a three-legged structure, with two legs in substantially a common plane, the third leg spaced from said two legs by a body part formed with spaced parallel resilient members constituting a gripping support and with portions of said first mentioned two legs, extending upwardly above the junction of said two legs and the body part, said portions crossed and above said crossing formed into opposed arcuate resilient arms.
2. Supporting device formed from a rod of resilient material bent to form a three-legged structure, with two legs in substantially a common plane, the third leg spaced from said two legs by a body part formed with spaced parallel members constituting a gripping support, all of the legs of U-shape and with portions of said first mentioned two legs extending upwardly above the junction of said two legs and the body part, said portions crossed and above said crossing formed into opposed arcuate bottle gripping arms.
