MAGNETIC POT HOLDER Filed Nov. 23, 1949 IN VfNTOR 71 4 4. mzw
Patented July 21, 1953 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE MAGNETIC POT HOLDER Hugh A. Kiler, Monrovia, Calif. Application November 23, 1949, Serial No. 129,014
Thi invention relates to heat protective articles, and more especially to a magnetic pot holder.
An object or" the invention is to provide a simple, practical and inexpensive article of the character described.
Another object of the invention is to provide an improved holder for pots and pans having magnetic means by which the article can be detachably secured to a metallic part of a stove, refrigerator or other conveniently located metallic surface or element.
An additional object of the invention is to provide a magnetic element incorporated within or associated with a pot and pan holder for conveniently supportin the same in a manner that will not detract from the appearance of the holder itself. 6
Other objects and advantages will appear and be brought out more fully in the following specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawing wherein:
Fig. 1 is a face view of an embodiment of my invention.
Fig. 2 is a similar view of a modified form of my invention.
Fig. 3 is a similar view of another modified form of my invention.
Fig. 4 is an enlarged sectional view taken along the line 44 of Fig. 3.
Referring more particularly to the drawing I show a pot holder III comprisinga pair of cover sheets I I of any suitable material between which is positioned a heat resistant material I2 of asbestos, cotton, or the like, or additional sheets of fabric material to provide an adequate heat resistant wall. Pad II may be of any desired shape but is shown as being rectangular in the several forms shown, and has the edge portion thereof provided with a bia tape I3 secured thereto by a stitching I4 along the inner edge.
Tape I3 has an end portion I5 extending beyond one corner, and a bar magnet I 6 is suitably secured within the tape in a manner shown in Figure 4. Magnet I6 is preferably a permanent magnet of a long-lasting type now commonly available on the market.
Figure 2 shows a modified form of my invention comprising a pot holder II having a marginal tape I8 within which the magnet l6 may be posi- 2 tioned and secured adjacent one corner by stitching I4.
In Figure 3 I show another modified form of my invention comprisin a pot holder 23 having 5 a marginal tape 2I and a magnet I5 secured therewithin, substantially at the mid-point of one edge. I
Figure 4 illustrates the manner in which the pot holder may be held and secured to a magnetizable metallic wall 22 such as the front or side wall of a stove, refrigerator, cabinet, or similar metal wall or element which may be positioned conveniently to the housewife. The pot holders I0, I8 and 20 may be readily secured and held in position by merely placing against wall 22, and can be equally conveniently removed therefrom. Thus one or more pot holders can always be kept conveniently accessible to the housewife when needed in the vicinity of the stove.
It will be understood that the foregoing description is illustrative rather than restrictive of my invention and that changes and modifications may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the sub-joined claim.
Having described my invention what I claim is:
In a pot holder, a rectangular, laminated, padded body, a length of a binding tape folded over and about the edges of the body and secured thereto, a by stitching, a closed pocket formed adjacent a corner of thebody, and a piece of a bar magnet snugly housed within said pocket to magnetically support the holder on a metallic surface, such as a wall of a kitchen range.
