' ELECTRIC LAMP SGIIIKEEN Filed Feb. 7, 1944 Inventor guy/mph. 5L9

- By aid Patented Aug. 21, 1945 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE ELECTRIC LAMP SCREEN Gunard H. Elg, Comi'rey, Minn. Application February 7, 1944, Serial No. 521,422 1 Claim. '(01. 240-102) The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in electric lamp screens, and has for its primary object to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, a device of this char-' acter which will protect .the bulb from flies and other insects in addition to functioning as a guard for preventing breakage of said bulb.

Another very important object of the invention is to provide a screen of the aforementioned character which embodies a unique construction and arrangement whereby the device may be: expeditiously mounted on various Sizes or incandescent electric lamps.

Other objects of the invention are to provide a screen or protector of the character described for incandescent electric lamps which will be comparatively simple in construction, strong, durable, compact and which may be manufactured at low cost.

All of the foregoing, and still further objects and advantages of the invention, will become apparent from a study of thefollowing specification,

taken in connection with the accompanying drawing wherein like characters of reference designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, and wherein:

Figure 1 is an elevational View, showing a screen constructed in accordance with the present invention mounted in lamp.

Figure 2 is a top plan view thereof. Figure 3 is a vertical sectional view, taken substantially on the line 3-3 of Figure 1.

Figure 4 is a view in horizontal section, taken substantially on the line 4-4 of Figure 1.

Figure 5 is a fragmentary view in vertical section, taken substantially on the line 5-5 of Figure 1.

Referring now to the drawing in detail, it will be seen thatthe embodiment of the invention which has been illustrated comprises a substantially cup-shaped screen body I of suitable mesh. The screen body I, which is open at its top and closed at its bottom, may be of any desired dimensions.

Removably mounted on the body I is a top 2 .of metal or other suitable material. The top 2 includes a depending skirt 3 for the reception of the upper portion of the screen body I. Struck inwardly from the skirt 3 are prongs or teeth 4 which are adapted to penetrate the upper portion of the body I for anchoring said body in thetop 2, The top 2 further includes a centrally located, circular opening 5. The opening 5 is for the reception of the neck portion 6 of a conventional position on an electric incandescent electric lamp 1 on which the device is to be mounted.

It is thought that the manner in which the device functions will be readily apparent from a consideration of the foregoing. Briefly, to mount the screen on the lamp 1, said lamp is first removed from the socket 8. The top 2 is then slipped over the base'9 of the lamp 1 and seated on the neck 6.- The lamp 1 is then reinserted inthe socket 8. The. foraminous body I is then slipped upwardly over the lamp 1 and engaged in the top 2 where it is anchored by the prongs 4. To

remove the device, the walls of the body I, at the upper portion thereof, are flexed inwardly out of engagement withthe prongs 4, after which the body I may be withdrawn from the top 2. The

vice may be readily mounted on various sizes of lamps within a given range. In addition to protecting the lamp from insects, the foraminous body I also constitutes a shield for protecting the lamp against breakage.

It is believed that the many advantages of an electric lampscr'een constructed in accordance with the present invention will be readily understood, and although a preferred embodiment of the device is as illustrated and described, it is to be understood that changes in the, details of construction may be resorted to which will fall within the scope of the invention as claimed.

What is claimed is:

An electric lamp screen comprising a substantially cup-shaped relatively resilient foraminous body of relatively fine mesh screen open at its top for the reception of a lamp, said body includinga substantially rounded, integral bottom, and a top removably mounted on the body, said top having a circular. centrally located opening therein for the passage of the base of the lamp and adapted to seat on the neck portion thereof, said top including a depending skirt for the reception of the upperportion of the body, and prongs struck inwardly from said skirt and adapted to penetrate-the upper portion of the foraminous body for anchoring said body in said top.
