1 Claim, 5 Drawing Figures PATENTEDAUG 1 m2 1680.751

INVENTOR WALTER R TENBROOK BRACELET FOR CARRYING MEDICINAL PILLS This invention relates to both jewelry and to pill containers; more particularly, to a piece of jewelry in the form of a bracelet embodying a pill container for one to carry necessary pills on ones wrist.

Many people must carry certain medicines in pill form with them at all times, particularly people with heart trouble. These people'must carry nitro glycerine or other heart medicines in order to forstall possible heart attacks. The pills should be carried where any stranger can find them easily and without delay as the person carrying the pills may become unconscious and be unable to help his rescuer by not being able to indicate where his emergency pills are kept. Also, the carrying of a glass or plastic pill container is not always practical as these containers can and sometimes do become broken in ones purse or pocket. These facts have resulted in the herein described invention.

It is the principal object of this invention to provide a bracelet for carrying medicinal pills on ones wrist where the pills can easily be obtained in an emergency.

Another object of this invention is to provide a bracelet for carrying medicinal pills, the bracelet having indicta on the top of the container portion stating what it is and telling its contents and the wearers name.

Still another object of this invention is to provide a bracelet for carrying medicinal pills, the bracelet not taking up any more room on the wrist than a wrist watch or the like, and at the same time providing an unbreakable container for the pills which cannot accidentally come out of the same by reason of its unique construction.

Other and further objects and advantages of this invention will no doubt appear as the reading of this specification and its appended claims proceeds and the accompanying drawing is examined in connection therewith.

In the drawings:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of this invention on the wrist.

FIG. 2 is a perspective view of the pill container portion of this invention.

FIG. 3 is a perspective view of the pill container portion of this invention turned over showing the screw covered opening therein.

FIG. 4 is a longitudinally disposed section view of the pill container portion of this invention, taken substantially along line 4-4 of FIG. 2, and viewed in the direction indicated by the arrows.

FIG. 5 is an enlarged view of that portion of this invention that is encircled by the arrowed ellipse and indicated by the number 5 in FIG. 4.

In the several views of this invention like parts of the invention are indicated by the same reference number. The reference number 10 indicates this invention in its entirety.

Directing ones attention to FIGS. 2 and 3 of the accompanying drawing it will be seen that this invention 10 consists of a rectangular pill container 11 that is curved longitudinally to fit the wrist. A round internally threaded opening having a flat screw cover 12 is located in one end of the curved bottom 13 of the aforesaid pill container 11. Each end of the aforesaid container 11 is provided with two spaced and parallel t r I formed In s 14 for the rece tion of the l t r y disposed pin 15 that secures 011% end of the wrist band 16 to the pill container. The wrist band 16 is preferably made of metal as is the entire invention although any and all parts of the invention can of course be made of any desired material and/or combinations of material and in any desired finish or color. The top 17 of the oftemmentioned pill container 11 is provided with the words Medical Pill Container" as well as an indication of its contents and the wearers name, as one can see by examination of FIG. 2 of the accompanying drawing.

The way in which this novel invention is used is so obvious from examination of the accompanying drawing as to require no explanation in this specification.

This invention is subject to any and all changes and/or modifications that one may care to make in so long as the changes and/or modifications fall within the scope and intent of the appended claims.

What is now claimed as new and desired to be secured by Letters Patent is:

l. A bracelet for carrying medicinal pills, comprising a container which is rectangular when viewed from the top and curved to rest on the wrist when viewed from the side, the underside of the container having a round internally threaded opening, an externally threaded screw cover for said opening that is flush with the underside of said container when it closes the opening, the said container having its name and indication of its contents as well as the name of the wearer on the top thereof, said container having two spaced and parallel lugs on each end thereof, a wrist band, and two pins, each pin passing through openings in the lugs at one end of the container and through an opening in one end of said wrist band.
