y 0, 1956 c. R. TAYLOR CONTAINER STABILIZER Filed Sept; 30, 1955 (Zea 242m 91- 5W0 Wig, ATTORNEYS United States Patent CONTAINER STABILIZER Clarence R. Taylor, Penfield, N. Y.
Application September 30, 1955, Serial No. 537,655 1 Claim. (Cl. 215-101) This invention relates to a container stabilizer.
An object of this invention is to provide a novel and emcient device for holding a container in an upright position when in use.
Another object of this invention is to provide a unique device for holding containers, such as glasses, cups, and the like, to prevent spilling when used by babies, picnickers, etc.
A still further object of this invention is to provide a stabilizer that is comparatively inexpensive to manufacture and which is eflicient and novel.
With the foregoing and other ojects in view, this invention comprises certain novel constructions, combinations, and arrangements of parts as will be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and more particularly pointed out in the appended claim.
Fig. l is a view in side elevation of a device constructed in accordance with this invention, showing a container mounted thereon.
Fig. 2 is an enlarged central sectional view of the device and container, taken on line 2-2, Fig. 3, and looking in the direction of the arrows.
Fig. 3 is a horizontal sectional view taken on line 33, Fig. 3, and looking in the direction of the arrows.
Fig. 4 is a plan view of the base.
Fig. 5 is a top plan view of the body of the device, while Fig. 6 is a view in side elevation.
2,754,021 Patented July 10, 1956 Fig. 7 is a top plan view of the ring with the grippers, while Fig. 8 is a view in side elevation.
Referring to the drawings by numerals, 1 designates the disc-like base of the device, on which the cone-like body 2 (Fig. 6) is fixedly secured as shown at 3. The hollow body 2 comprises a fiat base flange 4, and an upper horizontal flange 5; as shown, this flange 5 extends inwardly.
Under flange 5 is located a metal ring 6 that has a plurality of inwardly extending V-shape grippers 7; these grippers are pointed and bent downwardly as shown in Fig. 2 for ease in inserting and for better gripping a container placed within the device, Figs. 1 and 2.
It is to be noted that the container must be pushed into place to make good contact between it and the pointed grippers.
The securing means 3 is between the flat flange 4 and base 1, and said means 3 may be of any suitable adhesive, or securing material.
It is to be noted that the ring 6 fits snugly into the body 2 and thereby materially helps to hold the container firmly after insertion.
While I have described the preferred embodiment of the invention and illustrated the same in the accompanying drawings, certain minor changes or alterations may appear to one skilled in the art to which this invention relates during the extensive manufacture of the same, and I, therefore, reserve the right to make such changes or alterations as shall fairly fall within the scope of the appended claim.
What I claim is:
In a stabilizer device, the combination, of a disc-like base, a hollow frusto-conical body, an outwardly-extending base flange on said body and an upper inwardly-extending horizontal flange, a metal ring within said body under said upper horizontal flange, and downwardly and inwardly-extending triangular grippers, on said ring.
