on bodies, suchas boats, planes, trains, automotive vehicles, etc., while in-mot-ion.

In the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specification,

l ig. l is a front elevationalview of a beverageholder made. according to the invention as when applied to use;

Fig; 2 is an enlarged sideelevationah view of beverage holder as it would appear from the left in Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a top plan view of the beverage holder;

Fig. 4 is a detail sectional view, taken on line 44 in Fig. 3; and

Fig. 5 is a detail sectional view, taken as on line ss in Fig. 4.

A hanger unit 10 of the device is constituted as a single piece of rigid material, desirably metal, bent or formed to general U-shape. A base 11 of the U-shape hanger unit is integral with spaced, substantially parallel, first and second hanger elements, denoted 12 and 13, respectively, which extend downwardly from said base.

The first hanger element 12 is offset, as at 14, forwardly of the hanger unit, and also bifurcated to provide divergent wings, each represented 15. Upper portions of interior marginal edges of the wings 15 and a marginal edge of the first hanger element between upper ends of said upper portions together provide a bearing constituted as a downwardly facing, part-circular seat 16 of not more than 180 degrees and accessible from its lower side. The wings 15 of the first hanger element include apertures for receiving means, such as screws 17, for detachably securing the hanger unit upon a support for the beverage holder.

An end portion of the base 11 of the hanger unit 10, opposite the first hanger element 12, and an upper portion of the second hanger element 13 curve generally forwardly of the device and downwardly and are cut away to provide an opening through said base and second hanger element. An enlarged upper portion 18 of said opening is contiguous with a lower portion 19 thereof of reduced size bounded at its lower and opposite sides by interior marginal edges of the second hanger element which provide a bearing constituted as an upwardly facing, part-circular seat 20 of not more than 180 degrees and accessible from its upper side.

In the drawing, the hanger unit 10 is disclosed as when removably secured upon a boat with the first and second hanger elements of said hanger unit in upright position. The part-circular seats 16 and 20 of said first and second hanger elements, respectively, are in a vertical plane passed through said hanger unit in perpendicular rela tion to said boat, said part-circular seats are in spaced,

alined relation, and: the circular portions thereof are of equal diameter.

A frame of the device is constituted as: a yokecomposed as a base member- 21 and arcuate arms: 22 in: the plane of and extending outwardly from said" base memher. at one side thereof. The arcuate. arms. 22 are of equal. length and lie ina single. plane. The. base. member 21 is rigidly supported, as at 23, by a shaft: 24 which is; in the horizontal plane of the frame or yoke at the side thereof opposite: the arcuate arms. 22-, as. well as; in a plane passed vertically and centrally through said frame or; yoke. That is, the shaft 241 is equi-distantly spaced from the arcuatearms 22'.

The shaft 24: is rotatably mounted in a: bushing or tubularelement 25, andthe bushing or tubular element is rotatably supported; upon and. by the. hangerunit- 10. Anannular-flange: 26 upon. the, end of the. shaft 24: spaced from the base member 21 of the. frame or yoke lies. in a concavity 27, provided by offsetting the first hanger elementof the. hanger unit, in engaged relation to: said first hanger element, and said annular flange. retains: said frame or yoke base'member incontiguous relation with an adjacent surface of the second hanger element 13.

External surfaces of opposite end portions of the bushing or tubular element 25', snugly mounted on said shaft 24', are of the. same diameter as and; rotatively eng ged withthe part-circular seats 16. and: 20,. respectively. The

bushing or tubular element 25 spans the distance. between the annular flange 26 and an adjacent end surface of the base member 21 of the frame or yoke, and the weight of said frame or yoke, with appurtenances, causes a rearward end portion of said bushing or tubular element to have tendency toward tilting upwardly, about the upwardly facing, part-circular seat 20 as a fulcrum, always to be engaged against the downwardly facing, part-circular seat 16, as well as causes a forward end portion of the bushing or tubular element to be engaged by gravity against said upwardly facing, part-circular seat 20.

A retainer of the device, for receiving glasses, bottles, cups, etc., is constituted as a basket consisting of first and second U-shaped members, denoted 28 and 29, respectively, in perpendicular relation to each other, encircled by vertically spaced, circular elements 30. Horizontal bases of the U-shape members 28 and 29, engaged with each other at the vertical center of the retainer or basket, are of equal length and legs of the U-shape members extend vertically upward in equally spaced re lation, at degrees apart as shown. The legs of the U-shape member 28 extend to position above the upper ends of the legs of the U-shape member 29, and upper end portions of the legs of said U-shape member 28, bent outwardly, as at 31, are rotatably mounted, as at 32, in end portions of the arcuate arms 22' spaced from the base member 21 of the frame or yoke. The outwardly bent end portions 31 are horizontally disposed and in equally spaced relation to said base member, as well as in perpendicular relation to the shaft 24.

Jarring, tilting or rocking movement, caused by shock or otherwise, of a body upon which the beverage holder is supported will be absorbed by rotative movement of the frame or yoke relative to the hanger unit 10 and/or by rotative movement of the retainer or basket relative to said frame or yoke. Normally, the shaft 24 will be rotated in the bushing or tubular element 25 when the frame or yoke is rotated relative to the hanger unit. If in some instance or other said shaft were to fail to rotate in said bushing or tubular element when the frame or yoke was rotated, the bushing or tubular element itself would rotate on the part-circular seats 16 and 20 of the hanger unit.

lel relation, said first hanger element being cut away to provide a first opening bounded at its opposite sides by -a pair of wings of the first hanger element for attachment of the hanger unit to a support therefor, upper portions of interior marginal edges of said wings and a marginal edge of the first hanger element between upper ends of said upper portions together providing a downwardly facing seat, an upper portion of said second 'hanger element being cut away to provide a second opening contiguous with a lower portion of the second hanger element bounded at its lower and opposite sides by interior marginal edges of said second hanger element pro- :viding an upwardly facing seat, the circumferences of said downwardly and upwardly facing seats being in alined relation, a shaft extending through said first and second openings in said first and second hanger elements in perpendicular relation thereto and rotatably mounted on the downwardly and upwardly facing seats, a frame fixed on said shaft at a side of the second hanger element opposite the first hanger element, and means on said shaft ,engageable against a surface of said first hanger element opposite said second hanger element to maintain said frame in adjacent relation to a surface of the second hanger element opposite the first hanger element when said shaft is mounted on said downwardly and upwardly facing seats.

2. The combination as specified in claim 1 wherein said first hanger element is oflset in direction toward said second hanger element and said means engageable against a surface of the first hanger element opposite the second hanger element to maintain the frame in adjacent relation to a surface of said second hanger element opposite said first hanger element is situated in a concavity of the hanger unit provided by offsetting of the first hanger element.

3. The combination as specified in claim 1 wherein said second opening is of dimension above said upwardly facing seat and said first opening is of dimension below said downwardly facing seat to permit passage therethrough'of said shaft and the means thereon.

4. The combination as specified in claim 1 wherein said shaft is rotatably mounted in a tubular element itself rotatably mounted on said downwardly and upwardly facing seats.
