Application filed November 10, 1925. Serial No. 68,132.
This invention aims to provide novel means for housing and shielding a nursing bottle, so that an infant will not mash it, novel means being provided for holding the cap of the nursing bottle on the body of the nursing bottle. 1
It is within the province of the disclosure to improve generally and to enhance the utility of devices of that type to which the invention appertains. V
With the above and other Objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of-the invention herein disclosed, may be made within the scope of what is claimed, Without departing from the spirit of the invention.
In the drawings Figure 1 shows in side elevation, a deviceconstructed in accordance with the invention; and
Figure 2 is a longitudinal section wherein parts appear in elevation.
The device forming the subject matter of this application includes a cylindrical casing 1, made of light metal or any other de sired material. The casing 1 is provided at its lower end with an inwardly extended flange 2. A false bottom 3 is supported on the flange 2. The bottom 3 has a central opening 4. A resilient'packing 5, made of rubber or any other suitable material, and in the form of a disk, rests on the false bottom 3. The disk preferablyis made of metal or otherrigid material. The packing disk 5 has an annular upstanding flange 6 which fits closelywithin the casing 1. The casing 1 is supplied with circumferential reinforcing ribs 7. Openings 8 are formed in the casing 1. The openings 8 extend in a line from a point near the bottom of the casing toa point near the upper end of the casing. In the upper end'of the casing 1 there are notches 9. The notches 9 'form circumferentially spaced flexible tongues 10. At their upper ends, the tongues 10 are turned upon themselves to form eyes 11. In the eyes or retainers 11 is located a retractile element 12 which extends in a continuous length entirely around the casing 1. The
retractile element 12 may besa coiled spring.
The numeral 14 designates a nursing bottle. The nursing bottle 14 comprises a tubular body 15 and a nipple or cap 16 detachably mounted on the body. The bottom of the body 15 of the nursing bottle 14 rests on the resilient packing disk 5. The flange 6 on the disk 5 prevents the body. 15
of the nursing bottle 14 from coming into" contact with the casing lat the lower end of the casing. Noting Figure 2, it willbe seen that the tongues 10 on'the casing 1 engage the lower end of thenipple 16, andhold the upperend of the body 15' of the nursing bottle 14 spaced from the casing 1. The reractile element 12- draws the resilient tongues 10 inwardly into engagement with the nipple 16. Two results are accornplished. First, the nursing bottle is prevented i'rom sliding out of the casing 1. Second, the nipple 16 is held on the body 15 of the nursing bottle. The openings 8 enable the operator to ascertain how much liquid there is in the nursing bottle, and,
furthermore, they disclose the graduations on the' nursing bottle, it the nursing bottle happens to be provided with graduations.
The general construction of the device is such that although it is subjected to rough handling, the body 15 of the nursing bottle 14 will not be broken, andv as has been eX-' plained hereinbetore, the nipple 16 is held on the body 15 by tongueslO and the re tractile element 12. The operator may thrust his finger througlr the opening 4 in the bottom 3 and slide} the nursing bottle 14 outwardly, so that the 'tongueslO do not engage the nipple '16, whereupon the nursing bottle may be removed readily.
1', it is necessary to do no more than to put the nursing"bottle down into the casing, whereupon the tongues 10 will engage with In a device of the class described, a cats-- ing, a packing in the bottom of the casing and havlng anupstandlng'fiange, a nursing bottle comprising a body resting on the In mounting the nursing bottle 14in the casing so i packing and within the flange, to space the body from the casing, a nipple on the body and outstanding beyond the sides of the body, the casing being provided at its upper end with spaced tongues, Which are yieldable, and means for drawing the tongues inwardly, into Contact With the nipple, the
nipple and the tongues constituting means as my OWDII have hereto a-fiixediny signature.
