PATENTEDMAR 91am 3,568,970

Jew E. MALLETT ATTORNEY RECEPTACLE HOLDER FOR IRONING BOARDS This invention relates to receptacle holders and is more particularly directed to one that is adaptable for use on ironing boards.

Since the conventional ironing board is not secured to a wall or to the floor and. thereby susceptible to being jostled and jarred by the user, there is an ever present danger of spilling or overturning any article such as a can of starch resting on the ironing board. The present invention contemplates avoiding the spilling and knocking over articles necessary to the housewife in ironing that are placed on the ironing board between uses of the article utilizing a holder affixed to the ironing board and that prevents the receptacle placed thereon from spilling therefrom. V

Therefore, a principal object of the present invention is to provide a receptacle holder for ironing boards that is removably affixed to the ironing board and prevents the receptacle from falling out of the holder upon the ironing board being jarred or jostled.

Another object of the present invention is to provide a receptacle holder for ironing boards that receives and holds securely against spilling therefrom receptacles that are smaller than the holder.

A further object of the present invention is to provide a receptacle holder for ironing boards that is simple in construction, readily affixed to the ironing board and most effective in preventing receptacles placed therein from inadvertently being spilled therefrom.

With these and other objects in view, the invention will be best understood from a consideration of the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specification, with the understanding, however, that the invention is not confined to any strict conformity with the showing of the drawing but may be changed or modified so long as such changes or modifications mark no material departure from the salient features of the invention as expressed in the appended claims.

IN THE DRAWING:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a conventional wood or metal ironing board on which my receptacle holder is mounted.

FIG. 2 is a perspective view of my holder shown alone with a receptacle shown in dotted lines.

FIG. 3 is a cross-sectional view taken along the longitudinal center line of my holder.

FIGS. 4 and 5 are cross-sectional view taken along the line 4 -4 of FIG. 3 illustrating the effectiveness of my holder in preventing various sized receptacles from falling therefrom. Referring to the drawing wherein like numerals are used to designate similar parts throughout the several views, the numeral l0 refers to a receptacle holder constructed in accordance with my invention shown positioned on a conventional ironing board ll and having a base member 12 consisting of a narrow strip of metal or plastic material bent as at 13 and 14 to form a web portion 24 and extending in spaced parallel relation as at 15 with the base member 12. The end of the arm portion 15 is bifurcated or slotted at 16 to receive a locking member 17 therebetween. The end of each of the arms 15 are turned on themselves to form a circular opening 19 for receiving a pin 20 that extends through the openings 19 and bore 21 in the locking member 17. The locking memberl7 is provided with a cam surface 22 at its upper end which engages the lower surface of the ironing board 11.

In order to provide a holder 10 that may be used on wood and metal iron boards of different thicknesses, a second bore 23 is formed on the locking member 17. As shown by FIG. 3, the holder 10 is adjusted to fit on a wood ironing board which is thicker than a metal ironing board. To adjust the holder 10 for the latter, the nut 25 threaded on end of the locking pin 20 is removed and the locking member 17 is slid upwardly to align the bore 23 with the openings 19 and the pin 20 inserted through the openings 19 and the pin 20 inserted through the openings 19 and bore 23. The pm 201 IS then locked in place upon threading the nut 24 back on the end of pin 20.

Riveted to the base member 12 is a U-shaped support member having a base portion 30 and upstanding leg portions 31 extending at right angle thereto. The base portion 30 is riveted as at 32 to the base member 12 and is bent slightly away from the base member 12 at its midportion to receive a transverse member 33 that extends slightly downwardly and a short distance beyond the side edges of the base member 12.

At the upper inner surface of each of the leg portions 31 there is soldered or otherwise secured thereto, a circular rim portion 34 that is spaced from the base portion 30. The function of the rim portion 34 is to receive and contain securely in the holder 10, a receptacle 35 which fits snugly therein as shown by FIG. 2, and therefore cannot spill out of the holder 10 when the ironing board is jostled. Also, in the event a slightly smaller receptacle 36 is placed therein, the lower edges of the rim portion 34 will engage the bottom head 37 of the receptacle 36 and prevent the receptacle from leaving the holder 10 when the ironing board has been tilted. In the event an extremely small receptacle 38' is placed in my holder 10, when the receptacle 38 is tilted by movement of the ironing board 11, one end of the transverse member 33 will engage the inner surface of the bottom bead 39 of the receptacle 38. So long as the receptacle. being placed-in my holder 10 is no larger in diameter than the rim portion 34 and no smaller than the transverse member 33, the receptacle will be prevented of being inadvertently spilled therefrom as the ironing board is jostled andtilted as normally occurs during the process of ironing.

To provide a housewife with the convenience of having pins, needles and the like on the ironing board 11, a pin cushion 40 is cemented to a flange extension 39 of the base member 12. A lower portion 41 of the pin cushion 40 extends below the flange 39, acts as a cushion between the holder 10 and the top. surface of the ironing board 11 and serves to secure the holder 10 against slipping off the ironing board 11.

Iclaim:

1. A receptacle holder for ironing boards consisting of an elongated base member, means for removably mounting said base member over the edge portion of an ironing board, a substantially U-shpaed support member having a base portion secured to said base member and upstanding arms portions exbeyond side edges of said base portion and terminating within the confines of said circular rim portion, said end portions extending in a slightly downward direction whereby upon tilting of said receptacle therein, one end of said transverse member engages the inner surface of the bottom bead of said receptacle.

2. The structure as recited by claim 1 wherein said elongated base member extends beyond one of said upstanding arm portions, a cushion secured to said extension of said base member and positioned above and below said base member whereby said cushion below said extension secures said holder to said ironing board against inadvertent removal therefrom and aid cushion above said extension being usable as a pin cushion.

Claims (2)

1. A receptacle holder for ironing boards consisting of an elongated base member, means for removably mounting said base member over the edge portion of an ironing board, a substantially U-shpaed support member having a base portion secured to said base member and upstanding arms portions extending at substantially right angle to said base portion, a substantially circular rim portion mounted on the upper end of said upstanding arm portions in spaced relation to said base portion whereby upon the tilting of a receptacle therein, the lower edge of said rim portion engages the the outer surface of a bottom bead of said receptacle and a transverse member positioned between said base member and said base member and said base portion aNd having end portions extending beyond side edges of said base portion and terminating within the confines of said circular rim portion, said end portions extending in a slightly downward direction whereby upon tilting of said receptacle therein, one end of said transverse member engages the inner surface of the bottom bead of said receptacle.
2. The structure as recited by claim 1 wherein said elongated base member extends beyond one of said upstanding arm portions, a cushion secured to said extension of said base member and positioned above and below said base member whereby said cushion below said extension secures said holder to said ironing board against inadvertent removal therefrom and aid cushion above said extension being usable as a pin cushion.
