Description

J. H. ALLEN Feb. 7, 1961 CARRIERS Filed May 7, 1959 INVE NTOR United States? CARRIERS Jefferson H. Allen, 421 Highland Ave., Passaic, NJ.

Filed May 7, 1959, Ser. No. 811,644

3 Claims. (Cl. 224-55) My invention relates to carriers and more particularly to bottle carriers wherein a number of bottles may be simultaneously transported.

One of the principal objects of my invention is to provide a bottle carrier which is so constructed and arranged whereby a plurality of bottles of the same or different sizes may be conveniently carried at the same time and without danger of dropping.

Another object of my invention is to provide a carrier of the foregoing described character wherein the bottles may be selectively detached from the carrier without danger of breakage.

An important object of my invention is to provide a carrier of the foregoing described character which is simple in construction, durable in use, economical in manufacture, and capable of application and utilization by relatively small children as well as adults.

With the above and other objects in view, as will hereinafter appear, the invention consists in the combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter set forth and illustrated in the accompanying drawings from which the several features of the invention and the advantages attained thereby will be readily understood by those skilled in the art.

Referring to the drawings wherein like reference characters designate like parts throughout the severa views:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of my invention illustrating the same in position for carrying a plurality of bottles;

Figure 2 is an elevation of one of the thongs attached to the handle; and

Figure 3 is a transverse sectional view through the noose and a thong and illustrating the same in attached condition about the neck of a bottle.

In practicing my invention, as illustrated in the drawing, I provide a handle 5 in the form of a relatively narrow ring or band having its ends 6 connected together in any suitable manner, for instance, by lacing 7. While in the present instance, the handle 5 is constructed of plastic, it is to be understood that any other suitable material may be employed, if desired.

Secured to the handle 5, as hereinafter set forth, is a plurality of relatively long and narrow thongs or tape-like members 8 each of which has its ends fashioned with identical ears 9. Each of the ears 9 is formed with an eye or slot 10 defined by a tab 11, coincident or upper ends 12 of the members 8 being connected to the handle 5 by reason of the latter extending through the eyes '10 of the ears 9.

Each of the thongs 8 has its upper end 12 trained through the eye 10 of the other or lower end 13 to define a loop or noose 14 which is disposed about the neck N of a bottle B to be carried as depicted in Figure 1 of the drawing. It is to be noted that when each noose 14 is disposed in taut and closed condition about the neck N of a bottle B, the adjacent tab 11 will engage the proximus face of the respective thong and coact therewith to restrain relative movement between the tab and face in a Patented Feb. 7', 1961 direction to increase the size of the noose. Obviously, this action tends to prevent the nooses from being released from about the necks of the bottles except when the tabs are manipulated away from the faces of the thongs to effect removal of the bottles from the nooses.

When the thongs are attached to the bottles, the latter may be readily carried in side-by-side relation and in a suspended condition from the handle as shown in Figure 1. In removing the bottles from the nooses, they may be positioned upon a suitable support to dispose them in an upright condition. While I have disclosed my invention in conjunction with bottles, it is to be understood that the same may be employed for the carrying and transporting of similar items, such as containers, cartons, jugs, etc., whether they be constructed of glass or other materials.

In the present embodiment of the invention, the handle 5 is constructed of a one-piece length of material having each end constructed with openings for receiving the lacing to secure the ends together. The thongs 8 have their ends constructed in such a manner that one may readily be substituted for the other. This construction of the handle and thongs contributes to an economy of manufacture and to an easy assembly of the parts and thus enables the use of standardized components whereby the carrier may be readily assembled by other than highly skil ed workmen.

While in the present embodiment of the invention, the thongs are constructed of plastic, they also may be constructed of other suitable materials. Furthermore, the handle and thongs may be fabricated in the same or di-tferent colors to enhance the appearance, if desired.

Without further elaboration, the foregoing will so fully explain the invention that others may, by applying current knowledge, readily adapt the same for use under various conditions of service. Moreover, it is not indispensable that all the features of the invention be used conjointly since they may be employed advantageously in various combinations and subcombinations.

It is obvious that the invention is not confined solely to the use herein disclosed in connection therewith as it may be utilized for any purpose to which it is adaptable. It is, therefore, to be understood that the invention is not limited to the specific construction as illustrated and described, as the same is only illustrative of the principles involved which are capable of extended application in various forms, and the invention comprehends all construction within the scope of the appended claims.

What is claimed is:

1. A bottle carrier comprising a handle, a thong having one end attached to said handle and the other end provided with an eye and a tab defining said eye, said thong having a portion trained through said eye and cooperating with said other end to define a bottle neck cmbracing noose for disposal about the neck of a bottle or the like for carrying the latter by said handle when said noose is disposed in closed condition about said neck, said tab engaging said portion and cooperating therewith to maintain said noose in said condition.

2. A bottle carrier of the class described, comprising a relatively long tape-like member provided with interjacent and end sections with each of said end sections being formed with a slot, a relatively narrow element extending through the slot in one end section of said member and having its ends connected together to constitute a ring-like handle from which said member depends, the interjacent section of said member being trained through the other slot in said other section and coacting with said other section to define a bottle neck embracing loop adapted to be disposed about the neck of a bottle to be carried by said carrier, said other end section of said member being provided with a tab engagbetween in the direction to increase the size of said loop.

3. In bottle carrying means, an elongated bottle supporting flexible member. having interjacent and and sections with said end section being formed with an opening, said interjacent section being trained through said opening and coacting with said end section to define a bottle neck embracing loop adapted to be disposed about the neck of a bottle or the like to be carried, one of said sections being provided with a tab engaging the other section to restrain any movement of, either section in a direction to increase the size of said loop upon deposit of said bottle on to a support.
