- rmeurn-coiiramnn SUPPORT,
To all whom'z't may concern; I
Be it known thatj'l, Hnnnnn'r 1V. 13 IIin.-i1n)', a. citizenot' the UnitedStates, and a resident of the city of New York, R chmond Hill, borough ofQueens, in the c'ounty of] Queens and State of New York, have "in vented a new and Improved Liquid-Container Support, of which the following is a full. clear, and exact description.
Amongthe principal objects which the present invention has in view are: to provide a device for preventing the upsetting of ink wells or other liquid containers; to
simplify and cheapen the cost of construction of such a device; and'to provide means for readily installing the bottle or container in service.
' vice Fig. 5 is an enlarged detail view showing an end fragment of a holding device and a portion of the base.
As seen in the drawings, the supporter the well 9 and flange 10, thereof, are struck up two curled hook sections 11. Where the hook sections 11 are turned up, spaces 12 are left in the tray. I
As seen best in'Fig. 2 of the drawings, the hook sections 11 are curled to form seats for the parallel ends 13 of the spring loop 14. The loop 1 1 is shaped substantlally as shown in Fig. 3 of the drawings. It is pro- I Y tray. Figure 1 is a top view of a supporter constructed and arranged 1n accordance with Specification of Letters Patent. E Patented*Septf ,1918. Applicationfiledl Ioveinlierd wfi. "seritlnoeoasso. i i
vided with curved collar sections 15, which, 111 practice, surround the neck 1 6 of a' bottle or'o'ther liquidcontainer 17.
II As shown best in Fig.2 of the drawings,
'the portions of the loop lh'aving the collar sectlons 15, are raised above the sections 11. The loop 14 is so constructed throughout that when installed in service relation to the tray 8 and container 17, the loop 1% and all portions thereof are under tension. To this end, the collar sections 15 are nor mally contracted to lessen the diameter of the neck 16 of the container 17, and the ends of the loop 1 1 are normally contracted to lessen the distance between the hook sections 11. Thus while the collar sections 15 contract on the neck 16 of the container 17, the
ends 13contract on the sections 11 of the In. the modified form of the invention shown in Fig. 4, the tray 18 is provided with'a series of wells 9, one of which is rec- I tangular to hold a rectangular receptacle.
The tray 18 hasa central opening, theside edgeswhereof are utilized as detents for .the loops 21. The loops 21 are similar to the loops 14C in that they have the collar sections 15, and at the extreme ends of the loops are normally contracted to grip the edges of the openings 20 and 22. To this end, the lower extensions 23 of the loops are bent in to extend under the body of the tray 18.
In both forms of the invention, the one.
end of the loop is first adjusted to the retaining device, such as the sections 11 of the I preferred form, or the edges of the openings 20 in the modified form. The collar sections 15 are then adjusted over the containers, for which the loops are intended, and the free end of the loop is extended to besecured to the opposite section 15 or the inner edge of the opening 22.
From the foregoing, it will be seen that when containers are thus disposed, it becomes diflicult, if not impossible, to overturn them accidentally.
It is obvious that many forms of tray may be employed and the means provided there-on for engaging the retaining loops may be variously placed, all of which alterations are thought to be within the purview of the present disclosure.
