1942- c. D. DE LAMATER I DRIP CATCHING ATTACHMENTS FOR UMBRELLAS Filed Jul 29, 1940 mvzmon 6702392209 ,5 fie Lanai/av Patented Nov. 10, 1942 DRIP CATOHING ATTACHMENTS FOR UMBRELLAS Clarence D. De Lamater, San Diego, Calif.

Application July 29, 1940, Serial No. 348,158

3 Claims. (01. 13548) My invention relates to a drip catching attach- ,ment for umbrellas, more particularly adapted and arranged to catch the dripping from umbrellas when folded and in some indoor position and the principal objects of this invention are improvements over my Patent No. 2,170,236 issued August 22, 1939, for Drip catching attachment for umbrellas, and the objects of said improvements are:

First, to provide a device of this class in which the collected mass of drippings does not spill when moving or considerably tilting the umbrella on which said device is positioned;

Second, to provide a device of this class which is readily, easily and quickly applicable to either the ferrules of ladies or gentlemens umbrellas;

Third, to provide a device of this class which is very light in weight and which adds a pleasing streamlined appearance to the umbrella on which it is positioned;

Fourth, to provide a device of this class which may be made of various colored materials providing a harmonizing model for use in connection with each individually colored umbrella;

Fifth, to provide a device of this class which is arranged to fit ferrules of substantially all umbrellas now in use and which maintains a firm frictional grip on the ferrule of the umbrella when positioned thereon;

Sixth, to provide a device of this class which is provided with a drip catching reservoir portion ample in size to retain all drippings from the umbrella to which it is attached;

Seventh, to provide a device of this class which is arranged to support umbrellas in upright position when folded by means of a vacuum cup portion of said device; and

Eighth, to provide a device of this class which is very simple and economical of construction, durable, efficient and which will not readily deteriorate or get out of order.

With these and other objects in view as will ap-' pear hereinafter, my invention consists of certain novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts and portions as will be hereinafter described in detail and particularly set forth in the appended claims, reference being had to the accompanying drawing and to the characters of reference thereon which form a part of this application in which:

Figure 1 is a top or plan view of my drip catching attachment for umbrellas; Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view taken from the line 2-2 of Fig. 1 and Fig. 3 is a fragmentary secshown in Fig. 2, showing by dash lines the ferrule of a mans umbrella positioned and extending through the lower portion of my drip catching attachment for umbrellas.

Similar characters of reference refer to similar parts and portions throughout'the several views of the drawing.

In the construction of my drip catching attachment for umbrellas I have provided a device struction. The bore lb extending downwardly from the recessed portion Ia is arranged to receive the relatively long narrow ferrule of a mans umbrella, it being noted that the bottom portion of this bore Ib is closed by the portion Ic, as shown best in Fig. 2 of the drawing. The mans umbrella ferrule, as indicated at A in Fig. 3 of the drawing, by dash lines may be forced through the portion Ic so that the ferrule of the mans umbrella extends outwardly, as indicated by dash line A in Fig. 3 of the drawing. Surrounding Jhe portion I0 and extending downwardly therefrom is a vacuum cup portion Id, which vacuum cup portion I d is arranged to engage relatively smooth surfaces for holding the umbrella together with my drip catching attachment in upright position so'that water on the umbrella may drain downwardly into the reservoir portion Ie surrounding the upwardly extending portion I, as shown best in Fig. 2 of the drawing. It will be noted that the upwardly extending portion I is integral with the vacuum cup portion Id and that the reservoir portion. Ie is formed in integral outwardly diverging relation with the upwardly extending portion I, as shown best in Fig. 2 of the drawing. The outwardly diverging side portions If form the side walls of the reservoir portion Ia and these side wall portions I f are arranged in upwardly and inwardly curving form, as shown best in Fig. 2 of the drawing providing an annular reduced curved bead portion Ig which is arranged to surround the umbrella ferrule, as shown by dash line B in Fig. 2 of the drawing.

The operation of my drip catching attachment for umbrellas is substantially as follows:

As hereinbefore described, it is obvious that tional view taken on the same plane as that this drip catching attachment may be positioned on either a ladys or mans umbrella. When positioned on the ferrule of an umbrella and the umbrella is brought indoors after being in a storm, the wet umbrella is folded and hung up or positioned in a corner or other suitable positions whereby the water from the umbrella is permitted to drain into the reservoir portion le. This reservoir portion Ie is of sufiicient capacity to retain all of the water drained from any conventional umbrella. This reservoir portion le retains the water therein until the user of the umbrella desires to use the umbrella again. The water in the reservoir portion le remaining from previous use of the umbrella does not spill or Cir tilted to a considerable degree whereby the water gradually spills out of the reservoir le reducing to a minimum the chance of spilling the water on the user of the umbrella or on the umbrella itself. The ferrule engaging recess portion la is resilient and is arranged to maintain. a firm grip on the ferrule of ladies umbrellas, while the bore portion lb is arranged to frictionally engage the ferrule of a mans umbrella providing a tenacious gripping means which holds the drip catching attachment securely on any umbrella to which it is applied. The vacuum cup portion Id is arranged for use in holding a Wet umbrella in upright position upon a floor while draining water from the umbrella and drying the same.

Though I have shown and described a particular construction, combination and arrangement of parts and portions, I do not wish to be limited to this particular construction, combination and arrangement but desire to include in the scope of my invention the construction, combination and arrangement substantially as set forth in the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. In a device of the class described, the combination of a hollow reservoir defining portion, a resilient umbrella tip engaging portion concentrically positioned and extending therein, said umbrella tip engaging portion comprising a relatively large umbrella tip engaging portion and a small staff end engaging portion beyond and in concentric relation therewith.

2. In a device of the class described, the combination of a hollow reservoir defining portion, a resilient umbrella tip engaging portion concentrically positioned and extending therein, said umbrella tip engaging portion comprising a relatively large umbrella tip engaging portion and a small stafi end engaging portion beyond and in concentric relation therewith, the inner end of said reservoir defining portion provided with an annular inwardly curved portion and a vacuum cup portion integral with said reservoir defining portion positioned at the extending end of said device. I

3. In a drip catching attachment for umbrella-s, the combination of a centrally positioned umbrella tip engaging portion provided with a recess portion arranged to engage large diameter umbrella ferrules and also provided with a small diameter umbrella tip engaging portion therein arranged to engage small diameter umbrella. tips, a hollow reservoir defining portion surrounding said umbrella tip engaging portion, and a vacuum cup portion on said drip catching attachment positioned on the extending end of said drip catching attachment.
