EXTENSION AND TELESCO PING ATTACHMENT FOR NOZZLE OF SHOWERS Filed Sept. 20, 1954 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 INVENTOR RUFIN L. SCHWEDA ATTORNEYS United States Patent EXTENSION AND TELESCOPING ATTACHMENT FOR NOZZLE OF SHOWERS Rufin L. Schweda, Milwaukee, Wis.

Application September 20, 1954, Serial No. 457,023

1 Claim. (Cl. 299-73) This invention appertains to shower baths, and more particularly to a novel shower bath nozzle fitting.

One of tthe primary objects of my invention is to provide a shower bath fitting in which the spray nozzle or head can be instantly adjusted to different heights to suit the requirements of various sized persons.

Another salient object of my invention is to provide a shower bath fitting embodying telescoping tubes between the spray nozzle or head and the water conduit pipe, whereby the nozzle can be raised or lowered to the desired height by a mere sliding action.

A further object of my invention is the provision of means for supporting the telescoping tubes by a ball and socket joint and the shower nozzle on the tubes by a similar ball and socket joint, whereby the fitting can be swung at various desired angles.

A further important object of my invention is the provision of means for permitting the tubes to be swung back to an out of the way position substantially parallel with a wall or to any desired angular position with the tubes and spray nozzle positively held in such angular position, whereby any tendency of the tubes and nozzle to swing down by their weight will be eliminated.

A still further important object of my invention is to provide a shower bath fitting of the above character, which will be durable and eflicient in use, one that will be simple and easy to manufacture, and one which can be placed upon the market at a reasonable cost.

With these and other objects in View, the invention consists in the novel construction, arrangement and formation of parts, as will be hereinafter more specifically described and claimed, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which drawings,

Figure 1 is a side elevational view showing my novel shower bath fitting in position on a water conduit pipe and above a tub, the adjacent room wall and floor being shown in section, the fitting being shown in full lines in one adjusted position, in dotted lines in one lowered position and in dotted lines in another collapsed out of the way position;

Figure 2 is a longitudinal sectional view through the fitting taken substantially on the line 22 of Figure 1, looking in the direction of the arrows, the view being on a larger scale than Figure 1;

Figure 3 is an enlarged fragmentary side elevational view showing the fitting in one of its adjusted angular positions and held positively in such position against swinging movement;

Figure 4 is a View similar to Figure 3, but showing the fitting swung back to its out of the way position, and

Figure 5 is a detail sectional view taken on the line 5--5 of Figure 3, looking in the direction of the arrows and illustrating more particularly the means for positively holding the fitting in a desired angular position.

Referring to the'drawings in detail, wherein similar reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, the letter F generally indicates Patented Jan. 1, 1957 my novel shower bath fitting, and as illustrated the same is connected with a water outlet pipe 10, projecting from a wall 11. In the present instance, the fitting F is shown above a tub 12, but it is'to be understood that the fitting is to be also used in a shower stall.

The fitting F comprises an outer tube section 13 of a desired length and an inner sliding telescoping tube section 14. The lower end of the outer tube section 13 carries a packing gland 15, including an adjustable packing nut 16. The upper end of the outer tube section 13 has secured thereto a coupling 17 into which is threaded a socket ring 18 for snugly receiving a ball head 19. This head is carried by the water outlet pipe 10. Any desired type of packing can be utilized for the ball head 19, and as shown, the same seats against an annular gasket 20. Between the ring 18 and the gasket 20 a lubricant packing can be used, if such should be desired.

After the socket ring 18 is threaded in position around the ball head 19, the ring is preferably held in such adjusted position for turning movement with the coupling 17 by means of a screw 21, for a purpose which will later appear. It is to be noted, however, that the ball head 19 defines a narrow neck portion 22 adjacent to the outlet pipe 10.

The inner end of the outer tube section 14 can carry a cross pin 23, which functions as a stop to prevent the complete withdrawal of the inner tube section from the outer tube section 13. The lower end of the tube section 14 has secured thereto an externally threaded nipple 24 on which is threaded a coupling nut 25 carrying a ball head 26. This head is received within a socket 27 formed on the inner end of a desired type of shower nozzle or head 28. The socket for the ball head 26 can include an adjustable packing nut 29.

In use of my fitting, the telescoping tubes 13 and 14 can be swung as a unit on the ball head 19 to any desired angular position, and the shower nozzle can be swung on the tube 14 to any desired angular position. Thus the spray can be conveniently directed onto desired parts of the body. By sliding the tube 14 up and down, the nozzle 28 can be conveniently moved to any desired height and thus the shower can be conveniently used by children as well as grown people of various heights. When the fitting is not in use, the same can be swung back against the wall or parallel therewith, as shown in one dotted line position in Figure 1.

To overcome any tendency of the fitting to swing down to a lowered position under the weight of the telescoping tubes 13 and 14 and the shower nozzle 28 after being moved to an angular adjusted position, I construct the ring 18 in a special manner for cooperation with the neck 22 of the ball head 19. One side of the ring 18 has formed thereon an upstanding substantially semi-cylindrical flange 30, and this flange has formed on its upper edge notches 31 of different depths. By turning the tube 13 and the ring 18 as a unit, a desired depth notch 31 can be brought into position, so that the wall thereof will engage and rest upon the neck 22 of the ball head 19 (see Fig. 3). When it is desired to swing down the fitting parallel with a wall, the tube 13 and the ring 18 are turned so as to dispose the flange 30 in front of the neck and out of the way of the neck and this will permit the swinging down of the tube 13 to a complete lowered position (see Fig. 4).

From the foregoing description, it can be seen that I have provided an exceptionally simple, yet durable, fix ture for bath room showers in which the shower nozzle can be quickly adjusted to any desired height and to any desired angular position.

Changes in details may be made without departing from the spirit or the scope of this invention, but what I claim as new is:

An adjustable extension shower bath fitting comprising a pair of telescoping tubes, a spray nozzle adjustably carried by the forward end of one of said tubes, a ball and socket joint carried by the upper end of the other of said tubes, said ball and socket joint including a ball head, a neck and a coupling for connection with a water outlet pipe, and a socket ring, means securing the ring for turning movement with the telescoping tubes as a unit around the ball head, said socket ring having a substantially semi-circular flange partially extending around the neck, and the upper edge of said flange having notches of difierent depths for receiving the neck.
