Patented Mar. 31, 1931 PATENT OFFICE SAMUEL 3'. BROWN, OF WEST POINT, KENTUCKY BATH-SPONGE HOLDER Application filed September 23, 1929. Serial No. 394,581.
This invention has reference to a device designed primarily for use in holding the usual bath sponge, so that the same may be conveniently used by a person in washing or sponging the back.
Another object of the invention is to provide a device of this character which may be used to facilitate the washing of automobiles, windows, woodwork or the like.
An important object of the invention is to provide a sponge holder wherein the sponge supported thereby may be readily and easily removed or replaced at the will of the user, thereby providing a holder to permit the changing of the sponge.
Another important object of the invention is the provision of means for securing the sponge to the holder to insure against the sponge slipping from its position on the 29 holder while in use.
WVith the foregoing 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.
Referring to the drawing:
Figure 1 is a bottom plan view of a sponge holder constructed in accordance with the invention.
Figure 2 is a side elevational view thereof.
Figure 3 is a top plan view of the holder.
Figure a is an enlarged detail view illustrating the sponge gripping prongs.
Figure 5 is a sectional view taken on line 5-5 of Figure 4.
Referring to the drawing in detail, the device includes an elongated body portion 5, provided with a widened end portion 6 and a handle portion 7 Secured on the widened end portion 6 at a point adjacent to the outer end thereof, is a wire sponge engaging member indicated generally by the reference character 8, the same being constructed of a length of wire material bent to provide a loop 5 to be fitted around the widened end portion.
Laterally extended elongated prongs 9 form continuations of the loop, and as shown are arranged in parallel spaced relation with each other, the free ends thereof being tapered to provide points 10 to permit the prongs to be forced into the sponge to be secured to the body portion, the sponge in the present showing being indicated by the reference character 11. Cooperating with the sponge engaging member 8 is a sponge engaging member 12 of like construction, the same comprising parallel prongs 13 which are also tapered as at 14:.
From the foregoing it will be obvious that due to this construction, a sponge may be compressed and forced between the adjacent ends of the sponge engaging members, whereupon the sponge may expand to pass over the sponge engaging members, in a manner as shown by the drawing.
Should it be desired to remove the sponge, the sponge may be readily compressed by the hands and passed between the adjacent ends of the sponge-engaging members.
Because of the length of the body portion, it will be seen that the device may be readily used for scrubbing or sponging the back of the person using the device.
I claim:
In a sponge holder, an elongated body portion having a widened end portion, sponge holding members, each of the sponge holding members comprising a length of wire formed with an elongated loop to fit over the widened end portion of the body, for adjustably mounting the sponge holding members on the widened end of the body portion, the ends of the wire extending at right angles to the loop, providing parallel prongs, and the prongs of the sponge holding members extending towards each other to grip a sponge therebetween.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto affixed my signature.
SAMUEL J. BROWN.
