BOOT DRIER Filed oct. 9, 1945 44 I r11/enter 45 EDM/AR@ H LIEBER I Patented Aug. 3, 1948 i, v 2,446,234 .l i p noo'rngan'in4 edward n. Lieber, ichieago, n1.- Applicationoetober 9, 1945, seiiaiNoL 621,288;

'fMy-present,invention relates' 'to dryersrand has A further Vabject of this invention is to provide means for maintaining .a continuous circulation vof heated air in and through a boot. A-s'till further objedtof iny-inventionis to provide a bo'ot dryer including means for suspend-v ing a 'boot in inverted position `and means for supporting a heater beneath the open end of the boot.

Other features and advantages will become more readily apparent from the following description and the accompanying illustrative drawings in which:

Figure 1 is a sectional elevational and diagrammatic View illustrating my invention,

Figure 2 is a detail perspective view of a dryer clamp.

Figure 3 is a broken off detail view of .a heater support,

Figure 4 is a detail edge View of a boot clip,

Figure 5 is a detail plan v-iew of a baffle, and

Figure 6 is a transverse sectional View thereof.

In the above drawings as well as in .the specication to follow, the same characters of reference indicate the same parts throughout.

While one embodiment of my invention is illustrat'ed in the above referred to drawings, it is to be understood that they are merely for the purpose of illustration and that various changes in construction may 'be resorted to in the course of manufacture in order that the invent-ion may be utilized to the best advantage according to circumstances which may arise, without in any way departing from lthe spirit and intention of my `device, which is rto be limited only in accordance with the appended claims. And while I have stated the primary eld of utility of my invention it remains obvious that it may be employed in any other cap-acity wherein it may be found applicable.

In the drawings, I0 indicates a boot held suspended in inverted position by a spring clip I I, the ends I2 and I3, of which are rolled to grip over the opposite edges of the boot sole I4, at a location near the instep l5, ofthe boot in order to hold the same in vertical position. Through the center of the clip is secured one end I6, of a flexible device I1, having a loop I8, on its free end for attaching to a nail or the like IS.

Held suspended within the boot by means of a pair of opposing arcuate jaw members 20 and 2|, supported transversely upon the outer terminals la-pipeZiI', by means -ofa setscrew 3G.

"I fhe vupperjend 31 of the tube 29, is curved to -extend into-the ytoe portion 32, of the boot 11).

yFixed-#to the end il; adjacent its terminal 33, is

VLa'ilange 34, and Aspaced down `therefrom at the l.ankle lportion 35, of the boot is another flange 36.

Both these flanges/34 vand 36,1ar`e perforated as indicated at 31, and their function is to center the tube 29, to prevent same from touching any part of the boot, which might burn the same and also to hold the boot open for free passage of air.

The lower end 39, of tube 29, is ared to funnel shape lll), and xed to the wall 4I, thereof is an end 42, of a depending support 43, to the lower terminal 44, of which is xed a horizontally disposed pan 45, adapted to hold a candle 46, or any other heater directly under .the funnel 40, whereby heat will be carried through tube 29, and emitted from its mouth 38, into the toe of the shoe from where it will pass to the heel portion 41, of the boot and then nally passes down the boot leg 48, and out through the end 49, thereof.

From the :foregoing it will be apparent that I have provided an eiective, quick and inexpensive means whereby boots may be drie-d. Hunters, trappers, fishermen, etc., very often have wet boots, either through the elements or perspiration which makes it very hard -to remove the boots and which makes such wet boots very uncomfortable to again wear before drying out and ordinarily this requires a long time, especially in the case of rubber boots. Therefore, in order to overcome this difficulty I have designed the above described dryer with which boots may be dried in a comparatively short time.

It is thought that persons skilled in the art to which the invention relates Will be able to obtain a clear understanding of the invention after considering the description in connection with the drawings.' Therefore, a more lengthy description is regarded as unnecessary.

Changes in shape, size and rearrangement of details and parts such as come within the purview of the invention claimed may be resorted to, in actual practice, if desired.

Having now described my invention that which I claim as new and desire to procure by Letters Patent is:

1. Apparatus for drying `an inverted -boot comprising a tube open at both ends extending from beneath said boot into the toe portion of said boot, and means cooperating with the inner surfaces of said boot to denne linearly arranged communicating chambers within said boot, a source of heat at the lower end of said tube, whereby heated air led through said tube into said toe portion is successively restricted against escape from the boot, said means comprising spaced apertured iianges on said tube.

2. Apparatus for drying an inverted boot comprising a tube open at both ends extending from beneath said bootginto the toe'portion of said boot, and means cooperating withthe inner surfaces of said boot to deiine linearly arranged communicating chambers within said boot, a source of heat at the lower end of said tube, whereby heated air led through said tube into said toe portion is successively restricted against escape from the boot, said mean-s comprising spaced apertured flanges on said tube and con--v tacting said boot interiorly, one of said -anges being positioned adjacent the instep of said boot -and another of said flanges being positioned adjacent the` ankle portion of said boot.

3. Apparatus for drying an inverted boot comprising a tube open at both ends extending from beneath said boot into the toe portion of said boot, and means cooperating with the inner surfaces of said boot to define linearly arranged communicating chambers within said boot, a source of heat at the lower end of said tube, whereby heated air led through said tube into said toe` gg Number portion is successively restricted against escape from the boot, said means including spaced apertured anges on said tube, said flanges contacting said Iboot interiorly and functioning also to locate said tube relative to said boot. further tube-locating means comprising arcuate plate members resiliently supported on said tube adapted to contact the inside of the top of said boot, a funnel on the outer end of said tube, and a candle holder secured to the :funnel and depending beneath said funnel, said source of heat being a lighted candle in said holder.

EDWARD I-I. LIEBER.
