Application November 23, 1936, Serial No. 112,363

1 Claim.

This invention is an attachment for bedsteads by which sliding of a mattress over a bed bottom will be prevented. The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing and will be hereinafter fully described, the novel features being particularly defined in the appended claim.

In the drawing:

Figure 1 is aperspective view of a portion of a bedstead and mattress, showing the application of one form of the invention.

Figure 2 is an enlarged detail perspective view of one end of the attachment in applied position.

Figure 3 is a detail sectional view taken vertically therethrough.

Figure 4 is a perspective view of a modified form which includes a clamp for use with tubular cross bars for clamping association therewith.

Figure 5 is a detail perspective View of a modified form of means for securing the stop rod to the cross bar of the bed.

Figure 6 is a detail view of another modified form.

Refering to the drawing in detail and particularly to the form shown. in Figures 1 to 3 inclusive, the reference numeral I designates an end frame of a bedstead, 2 one of the side rails, and 3 a cross bar of the bed bottom or bed spring which rests at its ends upon the side rails. The cross bar in this form is of angle formation, as 30 shown clearly in Figures 2 and 3, and is disposed close to the end frame, the mattress 4 resting on the springs or bottom which extends between and is secured to the cross bars.

Mounted upon the cross bar 3 is a stop rod 5 having its ends turned down at a right angle to its main length, as at 6, and then bent obliquely outward, as at l, for a short distance, the portions 6 and l constituting a leg whereby the rod will be supported on the cross bar 3. The leg merges at its lower extremity into a foot 8 which rests directly on the bar 3 and extends across the same, as shown in Figure 2, the foot merging at its outer end into an elongated straight toe 9 disposed at a right angle to the length of the foot and extending along the inner edge of the cross bar. Engaged over the toe 9 is a sleeve I 0 which has a leaf N extending from its outer side across the edge of the horizontal web of the angle bar and then projecting under said web, as shown clearly in Figure 3. From the inner side of the sleeve, a straight leaf l2 extends across and rests on the cross bar, a thumb screw i3 being mounted in the leaf 12 to be turned home against the cross bar to firmly secure the device in place. It will be readily noted that the clamp, consisting of the sleeve and the leaves extending therefrom, may be shifted along the toe and the cross bar to avoid interference with the bed springs or other parts but when the thumb screw is turned home the device will be firmly secured, and it will, of 5 course, be understood that the parts described are duplicated at the two ends of the device.

As shown in Figure 1, the bends in the supporting legs are outward or away from the mattress and, consequently, the feet are so disposed m as to effectually resist sliding of the mattress so that the attachment is especially desirable upon invalid beds in which the mattress is frequently tilted or set in an inclined position in which it tends to slide and damage or disarrange the bed clothing. The device is very simple so that it may be produced at a low cost and may be very easily applied toor removed from a bedstead.

In Figure 4, we have illustrated a modified form that includes clamps which can be used on bars of tubular formation, and the clamps of that form are likewise provided with sleeves to receive the toes l5 of the feet of the rod l6 which as shown in the form of Figure 4 are provided with inclined legs l1, whereby the body of the rod is directed inwardly to engage the mattress accordingly. The clamps of the modified form are provided with upper and lower leaves I 8 and I9 respectively, and the leaf l9 extends downwardly from the lower edge of the sleeve in curved formation, thence is directed in a horizontal plane, while the leaf l8 extends horizontally from the upper edge of the sleeve for disposal in spaced parallel relation with respect to the horizontal portion of the leaf IQ for cooperation therewith. The leaf H! has an opening therein for the passage of a thumb screw 20 therethrough, and the leaf [9 has a threaded opening to threadedly receive the screw for drawing the leaves together whereby the clamp can be secured in gripping relation against the tubular bar which is indicated by the reference numeral 2! and fixed thereto against casual removal or displacement.

In Figures 5 and 6 I have illustrated the stop rod as having its end portions extending through the cross bar of the bed with the terminals of the stop rod threaded to receive nuts for fixing the rod to the bar. In Figure 5, the right angle end portions or legs 22 are passed through the upper or horizontal portion of the cross bar 3, and the legs 22 are bent to provide feet 23 that extend through the vertical portion, the feet being threaded to receive nuts 24.

In Figure 6, the ends of the legs 25 are threaded and passed through the cross bar, to be held thereon by nuts 26 and 21,

It is thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of the invention will be readily apparent.

It is to be understood that changes may be made in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claim.

What we claim is:

An attachment for bedsteads, comprising a rod to extend horizontally to bear against an end wall of a mattress, legs formed on and depending from the ends of the rod and being bent at an inclination for disposal outwardly from the mattress, feet at the lower ends of the legs and extending horizontally therefrom for disposal across the end bar of the bed bottom to rest thereon, a toe formed on each foot and the toes extending laterally from the feet toward each other for disposal along a longitudinal edge of said end bar, clamps for the toes and each including a sleeve engaging around its respective toe for clamping association therewith, leaves extending in parallelism from the sleeve of each clamp for disposal over and. under said end bar, and a thumb screw cooperating with the leaves for securing the clamps to the end bar.
