3 Claims. (Cl. 4-159)` This invention relates in general to beauty parlor equipment and more specifically to a portable shampoo cabinet.

There are many persons. who are confined to their beds and accordingly are unable to properly position themselves relative to a water supply in a sink or basin whereby a proper shampoo can be given. I-t is therefore the primary object of this invention to provide an improved shampoo cabinet which is of such a nature whereby it may be utilized to easily give a shampoo to a person while lying in bed.

Another object of this invention is to provide anA improved portable shampoo cabinet, the cabinet being mounted on a portable frame and being vertically adjust.

able with respect thereto in. order that the basin andl cushion of the shampoo cabinet may be properly vertically positioned with respect to the bed or other article of furniture on which the person whose hair is to be shampooed is resting.

Another object of this invention is to provide an improved portable shampoo cabinet which is so constructed whereby it carries its own water supply` and has accommodations for receiving the used water.

A further object of this invention is to provide an improved portable shampoo cabinety which is self-contained, easily adjusted to a persons head while such person is lying in bed, and is very attractive i'n appearance.

These together with other objects and advantages which will become subsequently apparent reside in the details of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawings forming a part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which:

Figure 1 is a front elevational view of the shampoo cabinet which is the subject of this invention and shows the same with the doors thereof open in order to clearly illustrate the relationship of water tanks disposed therein;

Figure 2 is an exploded perspective view of the shampoo cabinet of Figure l and shows the same with a top cover thereof removed whereby access to the interior of the cabinet may be obtained from the top thereof;

Figure 3 is an enlarged vertical sectional view taken through the shampoo cabinet in the basin portion thereof and shows the relationship of the various parts of the shampoo cabinet with respect to a person having her hair washed, a portion of the person and the bed on which she is resting being illustrated;

Figure 4 is a transverse horizontal sectional view taken substantially upon the plane indicated by the section line 4-4 of Figure 3 and shows the arrangement of both the drain tank of the shampoo cabinet and the supports for retaining a water supply tank thereof in an elevated position such as that of Figure 3;

Figure 5 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view taken substantially upon the plane indicated by the section line 5 5 of Figure 3 and shows the details of a support for retaining the water supply tank in a vertically adjusted position; and

Figure 6 is an enlarged fragmentary vertical sectional ICC 2 view takensubstantially upon the plane indicated by the section line 6-6 of Figure 4 and shows the manner 'in which the support of Figure 5V is retained in an adjusted' verticalposition.

Referring new to the drawings in detail, it` will. bef seen that the portable shampoo cabinetl which is the subject of this invention includes a frame which is referred, to in general by the reference numeral 10. The framel 1.0 includes an elongated one-piece metal which is so bent as to form a pair of spacedy vertical legs 12 at opposite ends. thereof. Integral with each of the legs 12 is aA downwardly and forwardly sloping portion 14 which terminates in a. lowermost rearwardly directed portion 16. Connecting. together the rearward portions 16 isA a lower horizontal. portion 18. The horizontal portion 18 is bracedV with, respect to the sloping portions by suitable V-braces 20. As is best illustrated in Figure 1, carried by the horizontal portion 18 is a pair of transversely spaced wheels 22.

Carried by the frame 10 is a generally rectangular cabinet which is referred to in general by the reference numeral 24. The cabinet 24 includes a rear wall 26,apair. of side walls 28, a front wall panel 30 and a bottom wally 32. The cabinet 24 also includes a removable cover 34 which has a handle 36 to facilitate the removal thereof.

The cabinet 24 is provided with a transverse partition. 38 which divides the cabinet into a pair of spaces. Access to the two spaces is provided by a pair of doors 40hingedly carried by the front wall panel 30 in closing access openings 42 therein.

lSecured to the rear wall 26 of the cabinet 24 in. spaced. relation is a pair of vertically disposed sleeves 44. The sleeves 44 have their upper ends connected together by a` handle forming member 46. The sleeves 44 are telescoped over the vertical frame members 12 and are retained in;- vertically adjusted positions by a set screw 48. Thus the cabinet 24 may be retained in a vertically adjusted position with respect to the oor or supporting surface on which the frame 10 is disposed.

Disposed within the lower part of onehalf of the cabinet 24 is a drain tank 50. The drain tank 50 is removable and is provided with handles 52 to facilitate the carrying thereof. The top wall of the drain tank 50 is provided with an inlet 54 for receiving drain water. The lower part of the drain tank 50 is also provided with a drain 56.

Overlying the drain tank 50 is a sink or basin 58. The basin 58 is suitably supported at the upper part of the cabinet 24 and is intended to receive water during a shampooing operation. The basin 58 includes a drain 60 which is aligned with the inlet 54 whereby water drained from the basin 58 will go into the drain tank 50. The drain tank 50 is properly positioned with respect to the drain 60 by positioning members 62 carried by the bottom wall 32 of the cabinet 24 as is best illustrated in Figure 4.

As is best illustrated in Figure l, disposed in the lower portion of the other half of the cabinet 24 is a water supply tank 64. The water supply tank 64 is removable from the cabinet 24 and is provided with handles 66 to facilitate removal thereof. The water supply tank 64 also includes a removable cover 68 which facilitates the filling thereof with water from a convenient tap at the desired temperature.

Provided in the same half as that in which the water supply tank 64 is stored is a support 70. The support 70 is normally disposed above the water supply tank 64 and is generally rectangular in outline. The support 70 i11- cludes an inwardly directed peripheral ange 72 of the size to prevent seating of the water supply tank 64 thereon. Oppositely disposed side walls of the support 70 are provided with handles 74 to facilitate the Vertical lifting of the support 70.

As is best illustrated in Figures 5 and 6, the support 70 is secured to a larger base plate 76 which is in turn sup- Paifenred Aug. 281956 ported by standards 78 disposed at the corners thereof. The standards 78' have theirlower portions received in sleeves 80 rigidly secured in the corners of the half of the cabinet 24 with which they are associated, as is best illustratedin Figure 4. The support 70 is retained in a vertically adjusted position by set screws 82 carried by the sleeves 80 and engaging the standards 78.

As is best illustrated in Figure 3, the water supply tank 64 includes an outlet 84 which is controlled by a valve 86. Secured to the outlet 84 is a length of flexible tubing 88 which is provided at its opposite end with a spray head 90.

When it is desired to utilize the portable shampoo cabinet which is the subject of this invention, the shampoo cabinet is wheeled along side a bed, such as the bed 92 on which a person who is bedridden is lying. The person is then suitably positioned on the bed 92 with his or her head 94 resting upon a cushion 96. The cushion 96 is removably carried by the upper part of the cabinet 24 in alignment with the basin 58 and extends outwardly therefrom so as to rest upon the bed 92, as is best illustrated in Figure 3. It is to be understood that the cabinet 24 must be properly vertically adjusted through the use of the set screws 48.

After the person Whose head is to be washed is properly positioned with respect to the cabinet 24, the valve 86 is then opened to supply the water to the spray head 90 so that water may be supplied to the persons head 94. The water then drains into the basin 58 from where it goes into the drain tank 50. After the shampooing operation is over, the drain tank 50 is removed from the cabinet 24 and emptied. The water supply tank 64 is then placed back into the cabinet 24 and the support 70 therefor is lowered into its normal position. Finally, the cover 34 is again repositioned and the shampoo cabinet may then be readily wheeled away either for storage or for further use.

From the foregoing, the construction and operation of the device will be readily understood and further explanation is believed to be unnecessary. However, since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction shown and described, and accordingly, all suitable modifications' and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the appended claims. t

What is claimed as new is as follows:

l. A portable shampoo cabinet comprising a portable frame, a cabinet carried by said frame, a basin carried by said cabinet in the upper part of one half thereof, a water supply tank in the other half of said cabinet, a drain tank underlying said basin and receiving drain water therefrom, and adjusting means for said cabinet for vertically adjust ing said cabinet to facilitate proper vertical positioning of said basin, said adjustable means including a pair of tubular sleeves connected at top end portions by a horizontal handle member, a pair of leg members vertically adjustably secured within the other end of said sleeves, said legs including a forwardly sloping portion terminating in a rearwardly directed portion, each of which being connected to a rear horizontal portion, and a pair of spaced wheels journalled on said rear horizontal portion.
