BABY CARRIER.
Application -fi-1ed0ctober 1, 1923. *Serial No.-665,947.
To all whom it maiycoozcem: I
' Be it lrnownthat I, Ennor. W.LHA1VKINS,,
a citizen of the United"Stateswand a-resident'of Long Beach, Los Angeles County, California, haveinvented certain newvand useful Improvements in Baby Carriers, of whichthe following is a specification. I
My invention relates to baby carriers;
and while I have so designated it in this specificationand illustrated it;in' the. drawings it is to be understood that it can beused for carrying any articles whatsoever for, which it is 1 suitable.
- Among the' salient objects of my invention are,-to provide a simple frame: member with 'carriertherein to receive the baby, or articles, to be ca-rried, said framememher being foldable to various forms, whereby said device will serve as a cradle-like device, or as a basket like-device to be carried at the side,-much as a suit case is carried, thus eliminating danger" in crossing streets, :and also eliminating jarring. in crossing railroad tracks, or other rough places, because the device can be bodily lifted, or partially lifted, as may be necessary, so asto permit the minimum amount 'ofshaking of the de-.
Vice over the rough course of travel; to provide a device of the character referred to which can be' folded into small compass to be packed or carried from place to place;
its legs being placedthrough suitable openingsin the carrier in the frame; and in general, to provide a simple, efficient, con-v venient and comparatively inexpensive carrierof the character referredto.
In order-to fullysexplain my invention, I have shown one practical embodiment thereof on the accompanying sheet of drawings, which [I will now describe. In the drawings,-
Figure 1 shows my device adjusted for service as a cradle and movable;
Figure 2 shows the deviceadjusted to be carried at the side, or partly carried and partly moved on its castors;
Figure 3 shows the device adjusted to a form to be pushedwith oneend running on the walk or floor, the castors being adjusted for this purpose;
Figure 4 is a perspective view-of a detachable caster; and
Figure 5 is an enlarged view of one of the frame joints with holding means for holding: the frame: members to. different. lad-j usted posit-ions.
Referring now more in detail to the drawings, frame members, 1 a ndg2*,:-are hinged together with a rhinge" member 3, as shown in Fig. 15, saidhinge member being provided with a pluralityofradialrslo.ts.,-.as 6, to receive thedog, 7,.normally'rheld closed bymeans of a spring, 8. fllwolpairs of said framemembers, 1 and 2,.iand; said hinge 3,-aro provicled,av1th a carrier frame,
9, Lpivotally supportedtherebetween, as on ears 10, :on the pivot pin .11, :ofthe hinge member 3. 1 The lowerends.ofisaidz'frame partsin adjusted positions, aslindicat-edlat Any suitable meanszcan be used for holding said telescoping parts in. adjusted position.
Anwarm, 15, isextended fromzther frame member 13, said arm beinginhtwo; parts,"
telescoping and adapted to be locked 1 in adjusted positions'by a thumb b'olt,i16,. asindicated. .Said arm. is rigidly attachedto the frame member 13, and is provided Lat its inner end with a castor, 17.2 It will be noted that said arm 15 is set at such-an angle that it will operateitovhold the-frame members 2, 2, and the carr-lerframet), in-the position indicated in Fig.1 2, even" when frame members 1,1 and12are-raised to a position over theframe members 2, '2, and
13. The frame member 12, is proivicledwith a hand grip, 18, for carrying the device in the hand 111 13116 side, when raised or wad justed to the "formshown in Fig. 2.
The 1 carrien frame 9, isprovided with a canvas carrier, 19, but this can be of: any suitable material. I have shown it provided with leg holes, 19 with a cover flap,
20, whereby the flap can be removed and with the device set up as indicated in Fig. 1,the' child can be placed therein with its legs throughtheleg holes, 19*, and can push thedevice about on the floor. The cover flap 20, oan be madeto' button on the lower endof the carrier frame 9,:a-s indicated.
In- Fig.4, I have shown a form of-detachable castor, having the clamps 21 and 22, adapted to besecured-together by the thumb screw, 23, with the Castor, 24, swiveled thereto. The other castors, as 25, are secured to'the frame members in any suit able manner, and in the proper angles to serve the purposes as illustrated.
The use and operation of the carrier as here illustrated may be briefly described as follows:
'With the device adjusted and set up as indicated in Fig. 1, it can be used as a cradle in the home, or on the porch, or elsewhere, and at the same time it can be easily rolled from place to place or moved back and forth as a carriage is moved, all as will be readily understood.
The device can befolded as in Fig. 2, and will stand because of the extension 15, which 'can be extended to the desired or necessary length to form a tripod support, the frame member 12 being raised to the position indicated in dotted lines, that is, to a horizontal position, or it can be raised upwardl to the inclined position indicated in full lines and still allow the extension 15 to rest on the floor, .or it will be evident that the frame members can be straightenedout in alinement with each other, with the carrier swinging in a horizontal position therein, as it would be if the form shown in Fig. 2 were merely straightened upto a vertical position. This brings the hand grip 18 on the frame member 12, uppermost, as shown, and in position so that the device can be moved along on the floor or walk, or can be bodily carried, with the two castors, 25, 25, on the floor.
By adjusting said frame members 1 and 2 in alinement with each other, as in Fig. 3, and movingtwo castors 2-1, 24 to the lower ends, 12 and 13 the upper end can be held in the hand and the device pushed along on the floor or walk as indicated. tional flap or sea-t member, 26, can be buttoned across the lower end of said carrier frame 9, as indicated in Fig. 3, whereby the baby can sit therein, as will be readily understood from the drawing.
Thus many different uses can be made of the device. It will also be evident that it can be set in an automobile and adjusted so as to best fit the space available for it, according to the space in the machine.
I do not limit my invention to the details shown for illustrative purposes, except as I may be limited by the hereto appended claims.
