BOTTLE HOLDER.

LOUIS C. HAU'CK, OF COVINGTON', KENTUCKY BOTTLE-HOLDER.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented. Aug. 14, 1917.

Application filed July 22, 1915. Serial 80,41,298.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, LOUIS 'C. HAUQK, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Covington, in the county of Kenton and State of Kentucky, have invented certaln new and useful Improvements in Bottle- Holders, of which the following is a specification. j

My invention relates to supports; and its object is to provide a very simple device to receive a milk-bottle as delivered by the delivery man from the dairy or creamery, avoiding the objectionable practice of placing the milk bottles ondoor stoops or slmilar low places where the bottle is liable to have its contents contaminated or is liable to be overturned and broken.

The especial object of my invention is to produce a device which will serve this pur pose and which will at the same time be very economically constructed and simple in its application and operation, so that it will be readily adopted by all persons having milk delivered to them, and. thus contribute materially to the purpose of the 'efiorts which are generally being made to insure the purity of the milk consumed by the public, especially in large cities where both the risk of contamination and injurious results of such contamination are most serious considerations.

My invention consists in the combination of parts and in the details of construction and arrangement of parts as Will herein be more fully described and claimed.

In the drawing:

Figure 1 is a general perspective VIEW. of a device embodying my invention, showing how it is used;

Fig. 2 is a detail perspective view of the device.

As shown in Figs. 1 and 2, my improved milk-bottle holder comprises the resilient clip 1 and the bracket 2 secured at a proper elevation to the wall or other part of a building, such as the door casing 3. The clip 1 is made of a fiat strip of steel or similar material adapted to have a high degree of resiliency; this strip being bent-around substantially in circular form but not completing the circle, so that it leaves an open space 4 which forms the front of the device, while the strip preferably has its ends bent outward and backward to form rounded flaring lips 5 at the sides of the open space 4. This open space 4 admits the neck of the bottle 6 readily, due to the rounded inner sides of the lips 5 sliding outward and around the smooth surface of the bottle as permitted by the resiliency of the strip of which they form part.

When properly supported, the insertion of the bottle 6 into the holder is very readily accomplished by simply jamming the bottle against the lips 5, with the result that the bottle enters the holder as'above described; whereupon the resilient clip closes around the neck of the bottle 6, and the bead or shoulder 7 around the top of the bottle 6 rests upon the upper edges of the clip, supporting the bottle against downward displacement under the action 'of gravitv. The removal of the bottle by the customer is also very readily accomplished by simply pulling it out of the clip.

While it is highly desirable that the clip have enough-rigidity of support to allow the bottle to be readily jammed'into the clip, it is also very necessary that the clip have enough extension out from the wall or other supporting means to avoid jamming the fragile bottle against the wall by a careless delivery man; and to even cushion to some extent the impact of the neck of the bottle against the back of the clip when it is jammed into the clip.

These requirements are made by the peculiar disposition relative to the clip of the bracket 2 by which the clip is attached to the wall or other supporting means 3. Thus, there is a preferably integral extension 8 directly upward from the upper edge of the rear of the clip, then bending over backward in a bend 9, and then extending substantially vertically downward in the rear member 10 which is. provided with an opening 11 with a narrower slot 11 up therefrom to detachably engage with a suitable means, such as the screw 12, in the supporting object 3.

This bracket 2 thus formed by the parts 8, 9 and 10 integral with the clip 1, will have substantially the same resilience as has the clip 1 itself, and by the bend 9" of ample radius there will be some recession of the clip as the bottle is jammed into it but not enou h to hinder the ready engagement of the ottle in the clip by this jamming as above described. Such a yielding will amount to a suflicient cushioning efiect to prevent breaking of the bottle by impact of its neck a ainst the back of the clip, and by holding t e clip far enough out from the wall or supporting object 3 even when slightly yielding, as above described, the bracket '2 will, guard against breakage of the bottle by striking it against the wall.

Furthermore, this mounting of the clip out from the supporting object is accomplished by an integral structure that has no sharp bends at any point. This is especially favorable to the integral formation of the entire structure from a sufficiently resilient metal without breaking or weakening the structure, as would be the result were a sharp bend made in the metal at any point.

The holder may be out out and formed, as specified, from a continuous sheet of metal, after which the completed holder may be suitably hardened and tempered to provide the right degree of resiliency in the clip; or the clip may have a sufiicient amount of resiliency imparted to it by any suitable means other than hardening and tempering, especially if the clip be composed of material other than steel. Where, for instance, brass is used, it may have imparted to it the right degree of resiliency due to the operations performed upon it in cutting and bending it to the required shape. The article can be constructed very cheaply, so that it can be supplied to those who desire it at a very low cost, and thus ofier no serious hindrance to its adoption by persons of the most limited means who must nevertheless be supplied with milk.

Having fully described my invention,"what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

A milk-bottle holder comprising a clip formed from a single piece of flat resilient sheet metal, said clip extending around substantially in the form of an incomplete circle with an open space at its front flanked by the ends of the clip, and said ends being bent outwardly, forming rounded engaging surfaces at the sides of the open space, and a resilient bracket joining the rear of the clip and extending directly upward therefrom, then curving backwardly, and then extending substantially vertically down ward, and having means for attaching its vertical part to a vertical surface of a suitably fiXed supporting means to hold the clip out from the supporting means with sufficient rigidity to permit the insertion of the bottle by jamming it against said outwardly bent ends of the clip, but to form a cushion to prevent breakage of the bottle when thus inserted.
