PROTECTING SHIELD Filed April 5, 1951 @Y myzmf@ ATTD RN EYE Patented Apr. 8, 1952 Y PRoTEo'rlNG SHIELD Douglas L. oraadock,Leaksvi11e, N. o.
Application April 3, 1951, Serial No. 218,959
- l This invention relates to safety or sanitary protecting devices particularly for preventing spread of venereal diseases, and in particular a shield having a centrally disposed opening with straps extended from the corners for attaching the shield to the body and having an annular flange extended around the opening and positioned in a plane parallel to the face of the shield whereby the open end of a, tubular element may be wrapped over the flange and secured under the outer edge thereof to prevent the spread of disease germs on the interior ofthe sleeve to the outer surface thereof.
'I'he purpose of this invention is to provide means for mounting a shield on the inner end of a sanitary protecting device to prevent the spread of disease germs from the elements.
In the conventional type of tubular'protector itis possible for germs to Work around the open end and reach the outer surface whereby the germs may spread to a second party. With this thought in mind this invention contemplates an extended shield in which the open end of the tubular element is secured whereby the area around the organ on which the tube is used is protected.
The object of this invention is, therefore, to provide means for mounting a sanitary or protecting shield around the open end of a, tubular protector whereby with the shield mounted by straps extended therefrom on the body the tubular element is secured in position and disease germs therefrom substantially isolated.
Another object of the invention is to provide a sanitary shield for the open inner ends of tubular protectors that may be attached to protectors of the conventional type.
A further object of the invention is to provide an enlarged protecting shield for tubular protecting devices which is of a simple and economical construction.
With these and other objects and advantages in view the invention embodies an extended shield of flexible material with one Vstrap extended from the upper end adapted to be positioned around the body, with two straps extended from the lower end and adapted to extend around the legs of the body and with an opening having an annular mounting flange extended therearound and on which the open end of a tubular element may be mounted.
'Other features and advantages of the invention will appear from the following description taken in connection with the drawings, wherein:
Figure 1 is a front elevational view of the prowardly therefrom, said flange positioned in a tector with the tubular element shown in section.
Figure 2 is a cross section through the central sectionof the protector taken on line 2-2 of Figure l showing the connection of the tubular element to the protector with the parts shown on an enlarged scale.
Figure 3 is a detail on an enlarged scale illustrating the method of holding the open end of the tubular element in the opening. of the. shield.
Referring now to the drawings. wherein like reference characters denote corresponding parts the protector of this invention is formed with Ya Shield I0 having an opening II centrally positioned therein with a bead I2 surrounding the; opening and with an annular mounting flange I3 also around ,the opening and spaced therefrom.. and also with straps I4, I5 and I6 for holding the shield. in position extended therefrom.
One end of the strap I4 is secured by a strap fastener II to one corner of the upper end of the shield and the opposite end is secured by snap fastener elements I8 and I9 to the opposite corner of the upper end of the shield. l
The straps I5 and IB are formed integral with the shield I0 and the ends of the straps are provided with snap fasteners 20 and 2| that are positioned to coact with similar fasteners 22 and 23, respectively on the lower part of the shield so that the straps may be extended around the legs for retaining the shield in position.
The open end of* a tubular protector 24 is inserted through the opening II with the bead 25 on the edge of the protector extended into a recess 26 behind the flange I3.
It is preferred to form'the shield, tubular element and straps of rubber although it will be understood that other suitable flexible material may be used.
With the tube 24 mounted inthe shield 'I0 in this manner it will be substantially impossible for germs to work from the interior of the tube around the open end thereof to the outer surface.
The tubular element may otherwise be used in the conventional manner, and may be removed and replaced as used.
It will be understood that modifications may be made in the design and arrangement of the parts without departing from the Aspirit of the invention.
What is claimed is:
l. A shield having a centrally disposed opening extended therethrough with a bead around the edge of the opening and with an annular flange spaced from the opening and extended out- 3 plane parallel to the plane of the shield, and a tubular protecting element the open end of Which is extended through the opening of the shield and the rim of which is positioned over the said annular ange.
2. A shield having a centrally disposed opening extended therethrough with a bead around the edge of the opening and With an annular flange spaced from the opening and extended outwardly therefrom, said flange positioned in a plane parallel to the plane of the shield, a tubular protecting element the open end of which is extended through the opening of the shield and the rim of which is positioned over the said annular flange, and straps having fasteners in the ends thereof positioned to coact with the-fastenrs-onto connect the open end of a tubular element thereto, and having elastic straps extended from the; lower corners of the sheet with snap fasteners on the corners of the sheet and ends of the straps and with a strap having 'snap fasteners on the ends. thereof positioned to coact' With snap fasteners on the upper corners of the sheet.
4. A sanitary protecting shield having a substantially rectangular shape rubber sheet having Y acentrally positioned opening therethrough with elastic straps extended from the lower corners of the sheet with snap fasteners on the corners of the sheet and end of the strap and with a strap having snap fasteners on the ends thereof positioned to coact With snap fasteners on the upper corners of the sheet, said sheet having an annular bead around the inner edge of the opening, and an annular ange spaced from the opening and extended outwardly therefrom, said ange positioned With the outer part thereof spaced from the said sheet.
5. A sanitary protecting shield having a substantially rectangular shape rubber sheet having a centrally positioned opening therethrough with elastic straps extended from the lower corners ofthe sheet with snap fasteners on the corners of the sheet and end of the strap and with a strap having snap fasteners on the ends thereof positionedv to coact With snap fasteners on the upper corners of the sheet, said sheet having an annular bead around the inner edge'of the opening, an annular ange spaced from the opening' and extended outwardly therefrom, said flange positioned With the outer part thereof 'spaced from the said sheet, and a-tubular elementex-tended through the opening ofthe rubber sheet and positioned with the rim thereofextended under the edge of the rim ofthey said annular flange.
