BATH SPRAY Filed April 17; 1955 Patented Mar. 9, 1937 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE BATH S PRAY Stanley Isenberg, Chicago, Ill.

Application April 17, 1935, Serial No. 16,763

' 2 Claims. (01. 299-141) This invention relates to a bath spray, and more particularly to a bath spray which may be detachably supported in a plurality of positions to adapt the same for use as a shower, the supporting means for said spray being accomplished by means of a suction cup or the like.

An object of this invention is to provide a bath spray having a suitable spray head with which is associated a flexible hose for connection with a faucet, that portion of the hose disposed adjacent the spray head having a member disposed therein for holding the same rigid and for giving to the same a predetermined shape, and a detachable suction cup adapted for supporting the hose adjacent said spray head for holding the latter in operative position.

1 Another object of the invention is .to provide in combination with a bath spray of the character described a suction cup having means for sup- 30 porting the said bath spray, in which supported position the spray head may be moved both in a vertical and horizontal plane relative to the suction cup for adjusting the same to the desired position.

A further object of the invention is to provide a bath spray of the character described including a spray head and a tubular member extending therefrom and means associated with said tubular member for supporting the spray head in 30 operative position on a suitable support, such as a suction cup or the like.

A still further object of the invention is to provide a bath spray of the character described including a spray head having means associated 35 therewith for supporting the same in a plurality of operative positions on a suction cup, the latter With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction, arrangement and combination of 50 parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing, and particularly pointed out in the appended claims, it being understood that various changes in the form, proportion, size and minor details of the structure 5 may be made without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.

For the purpose of facilitating an understanding of my invention, I have illustrated in the ac- I companying drawing, a preferred embodiment thereof, from an inspection of which when considered in connection with the following description, my invention, its mode of construction, assembly and operation, and many of its advantages should be readily understood. and appreciated.

Referring to the drawing in which the same characters of reference are employed to indicate corresponding or similar parts throughout the several figures of the drawing:

Figure 1 is a front elevational view of a bath spray embodying the present invention, the same being shown supported in operative position for use as a shower;

. Fig. '2 is a vertical sectional view through the same; and

Fig. 3 is a top plan view of the same.

Referring to the drawing more particularly by characters of reference, the numeral l0 designates generally a spray head which may be constructed of any suitable and well known material and which is provided with a suitable neck portion 1 I to which is secured one end of a flexible tube II, the other end of which is adapted for support on a faucet or the like for supplying water to the spray head. The spray head I0 is provided with a perforated front face l3 through which the water is discharged in the form of a spray.

The construction so far described is of the usual and well known type, and as the same forms no part of the present invention, it is believed unnecessary to describe it in more detail.

In order to adapt the spray for use as a shower, or to support the same on a wall or other object having a smooth surface, I have provided for association with the spray a detachable suction cup, generally designated by the reference character It, having a suction cup surface l5 adapted for disposition on a smooth surface to be held thereon in the well known manner. The member I4 is provided with an extension I6 formed integral therewith, which extension is of substantially cylindrical form, as shown in the drawing, and has an opening I! extending completely therethrough, through which opening is adapted to pass the flexible hose 12.

In order to properly support the spray within the suction cup, I insert a tubular member I8 within the flexible tube l2, said tubular member being of substantially gooseneck formation and is disposed within the flexible member I2 adjacent the spray head Ill. Said member I 8 may be of any suitable material for this purpose, such, for example, as sheet metal tubing or the like, and gives a rigid formation to the flexible tube 12 adjacent the spray head and also forms a rigid support for said spray head within the opening I! of the suction cup. The tubular member I8 is of such a size as not to interfere with the free passage of the water from the faucet to the spray head. Thus when in fully assembled position, the spray head will be supported within the suction cup, as shown in Fig. 2, in which position the head is adapted for vertical adjustment within the portion N5 of the suction cup and is further adapted for angular adjustment in a horizontal plane, so that the said spray head may be moved to the desired position in its operation.

From the above it will be apparent that I have provided a simple and eificient means for readily converting the ordinary bath spray into a shower spray and one which may be supported on any smooth surface in any desired position, and when in such position, the device is capable of adjustment, so that the best results may be obtained from its use. It will also be noted that the supporting means for the spray are readily detachable both from the surface to which it may be attached as well as from the bath spray itself.

It is believed that my invention, its mode of .construction and assembly, and many of its advantages should be readily understood from the foregoing without further description, and it should also be manifest that while a preferred embodiment of the invention has been shown and described for illustrative purposes, the structural details are nevertheless capable of wide variation within the purview of my invention as defined in the appended claims.

What I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is:

1. In a device of the character described, the combination of a bath spray having a spray head and a flexible hose attached thereto for connection to a faucet or the like for supplying water to the spray head, that portion of the hose disposed immediately adjacent the spray head being provided with a stiffening member of substantially goose-neck formation, and means for supporting said spray head in operative position comprising a concavo convex rubber suction cup adapted to adhere to a relatively stationary support, said cup being provided with a centrally located integral outstanding sturdy projection having a vertical hole formed therethrough and adapted for reception of the stifiened portion of the hose and to thereby support the spray head in operative position, in which position said spray head will be capable of adjustment both vertically and angularly in a horizontal plane.

2. In a device of the character described, the combination of a bath spray having a spray head and a flexible hose attached thereto for connection to a faucet or the like for supplying water to the spray head, means for supporting said spray head in operative position comprising a concavo convex rubber suction cup adapted to adhere to a relatively stationary support, a member supported by said cup and being arranged to support that portion of the hose disposed immediately adjacent the spray head in a substantially goose neck formation, said cup being provided with a centrally located integral outstanding sturdy projection for holding in operative position the lower portion of said member to thereby support the spray head in operative position.
