Claims.

especially adapted for being removed from the.

basket frame for repair, cleaning or replacement and is particularly designed for economical and convenient manufacture.

The primary object of the present invention is to provid an improved design of utility basket lining which has long life and sufficient strength to support loads normall carried by the basket.

Another object of the present invention is to provide in combination with the lining, means for distributing the loads imposed thereon over sufficient area to inhibit tearingof the lining in use. These and other objects and advantages will become more apparent upon reference to the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the basket lining of this invention;

Figure 2 is a fragmentary perspective view partially in section indicated by the line 2--2 on Figure 1 and drawn at increased scale;

Figure 3 is a sectional view indicated by the line 33 on Figure 1 and showing one of the snap fasteners by which the lining is retained on the basket frame;

Figure 4 is a section indicated by the line 4-5 on Figure 1 and showing the manner of sewing and reinforcing the lining at one of the seams thereof;

Figure 5 is a sectional view indicated by the line 5-5 on Figure 1 and illustrating the means of reinforcing the lining around the cut-out therein for the basket handle;

Figure 6 is a plan view of the blank from which the lining is made;

Figure 7 is a sectional view indicated by the line '|--1 on Figure 6 and showing how a reinforcing strip is secured to the lining along the portion which engages the basket frame; and

Figure 8 is av fragmentary perspective view showing another manner of securing the reinforcement of Figure 7 to the lining.

Referring to the drawings, the lining is generall indicated by the numeral In in Figure 1 wherein it will be seen to comprise a flexible fabric shaped to substantially a frustum of a pyramid with the larger end open. The lining includes a turned down edge portion l2 which is adapted for passing around the frame of the utility basket associated with the lining.

The frame is generally indicated by the dotdash lines at E4 in Figures 1 and 2 and is more completely shown in the copendingi application referred to above. The frame preferably includes lug means as at It extending upwardly and downwardly therefrom and the lining [0, therefore, has the eyes indicated at I8 for passing over the lugs thereby to support loads placed within the lining. The eyes I 8 are suitably reinforced as by the metal eyelets 20, one of which is indicated in section in Figure 2.

The lining is adapted to be retained on, the basket frame by a series of snap fasteners 22 arranged along the edge of the lining and one of which is shown in section in Figure 3.

The portion of the lining which is turned over the frame of the basket and which carries the eyelets and the snap fasteners is preferably reinforced by a suitable tear resistant material which is indicated b the numeral 24. This reinforcing strip provides firm anchorage for the eyelets and snap fasteners and prevents the tearing of the lining due to load. stresses therein.

The lining is additionally reinforced along the edge seams 26 thereof as by the tape 28 which is best seen in Figure 4. This tape may consist of any suitable reinforcing material such as fabric bias'tape and is applied to the edge seams during the stitching thereof. There is further provided in the lining the cut-outs at 29 which are for the purpose of receiving the handles of the frame. These cut-outs are also reinforced as by a strip of bias tape 30 which is laid overrthe edge of the lining material and stitched thereto as illustrated in Figure 5.

The blank from which the lining in is made is illustrated in Figure 6 wherein it will be seen to comprise a Maltese cross shaped figure which is cut from a substantially rectangular blank by the incisions 32 cut in each corner thereof. Each of the incisions 32 is of such a size that there is a seam allowance completely along the edge thereof as indicated by the dotted lines identified by the numeral 36 in Figure 6. Also indicated on Figure 6 by the dot-dash lines 36 is the location of the reinforcing strip 24.

The material of the blank from which the lining is to be made is preferably a waterproof material such as oilcloth, leatherette or a plastic coated or impregnated fabric. A material of this nature is easily cleaned, does not stain readily, and has sufficient strength for all normal uses. The reinforcing strip 24 is preferably of a relatively heavy and strong material such as a heavy canvas or duck and is secured to the blank of Figure 6 as shown in Figure '7 wherein it will be noted that the strip 24 is stitched to the lining by the row of stitching indicated at 38 along the edge of the reinforcing strip furthest from the edge of the lining. Along the other edge of the reinforcing strip, the edge of the lining is turned back and stitched as at 40.

Optionally, the reinforcing strip may be secured to the lining material as by the adhesive shown at 42 in Figure 8. The particular manner of securing the reinforcing strip to the lining will depend upon individual preference and the par-.

ticular materials being employed in the lining and strip.

It will be understood that this invention is susceptible to modification in order to adapt it to different usages and conditions and, accordingly, it is desired to comprehend such modifications within this invention as may fall within the scope of the appended claims.
