Abstract

An attaching bracket has a clamp and oppositely disposed arms terminating in tubular portions. A receptacle has an encircling groove in its outer surface that receives a clasp of a holder from which two legs extend outwardly that are adapted to enter said tubular portions. In use said clamp is attached to a water pipe, holding said receptacle adjacent a shower head so that liquid from the receptacle mixes with shower water.

Another object is to provide such a bracket and holder that are simple in construction and easy to manufacture and which can be joined together or separated by a simple movement.

The foregoing and other objects, which will appear as the nature of the invention is better understood, may be accomplished by a construction, combination and arrangement, such as is disclosed by the drawing. The nature of the invention is such as to render it susceptible to various changes and modifications, and therefore, I am not to be limited to the construction disclosed by the drawing nor to the particular parts described in the specification; but am entitled to all such changes therefrom as fall within the scope of my invention.

In the drawing:

FIG. 1 is a side elevational view of my attaching bracket and receptacle holder joined together and in position of use, mounted on a water pipe and a receptacle respectively.

FIG. 2 is a sectional view taken on the line 22 of FIG. I.

As illustrated, my device has a bracket preferably made of spring metal. It has a clamp portion 12 from which two integral arms 14 and 18 normally extend outwardly away from each other and then inwardly towards each other. Said arm 14 terminates in a tubular portion having an end opening 15, and likewise said arm 18 terminates in a tubular portion having an end opening 19. These two tubular portions normally extend diagonally inward towards each other, the ends of which slant from their outer side extremities diagonally inward to make easier entry of legs 26 and 28 later referred to. In use, said clamp portion 12 clamps on a water pipe 32 by springing it, or forcing it, on at a point above a shower head 34 later referred to.

A receptacle 20 for bath oil or the like, tapers downwardly in diameter and has a peripheral groove 22 that encircles the lower half portion. A receptacle holder, shown as an arcuate clasp 24 preferably formed of spring metal enters said groove. Two straight legs 26 and 28 integrally extend from said clasp 24 normally in a diagonal direction away from each other. They normally extend farther apart laterally than said arms 14 and 18, hence they have to be compressed inwardly or towards each other in order to enter said openings 15 and 19. Thus they are under tension when they are assembled with said bracket 10.

Said receptacle 20 has a valve member 30 which is shown in open position in said FIG. 1, adjacent a shower head 34.

In use, when the shower water is turned on it flows through said shower head. Said valve is in open position and the liquid in said receptacle 20 drips into the shower water from said head 34, thus mixing with it. A relatively small quantity of bath oil for instance, would pass out of said receptacle 20 as compared to the quantity of shower water flowing through said head 34.

What I claim is:

l. A bracket for attachment to a water pipe in combination with a receptacle holder, said bracket having a clamp portion, two arms oppositely disposed and extending from said clamp portion laterally in position of use and terminating in tubular portions that extend diagonally towards each other, said holder having a clasp portion, and two legs extending outwardly from the latter, and adapted upon being compressed inwardly to enter said tubular portions whereby said legs press fit tightly in said tubular portions.

2. A bracket for attachment to a water pipe as of claim 1, said arms extending diagonally outward from said clamp portion to said tubular portions.

3. A bracket for attachment to a water pipe as of claim 1, said clamp portion slanting from the top thereof downwardly and inwardly in position of use.

4. A bracket for attachment to a water pipe as of claim 2, said clamp portion slanting from the top thereof downwardly and inwardly in position of use.

Claims (4)

1. A bracket for attachment to a water pipe in combination with a receptacle holder, said bracket having a clamp portion, two arms oppositely disposed and extending from said clamp portion laterally in position of use and terminating in tubular portions that extend diagonally towards each other, said holder having a clasp portion, and two legs extending outwardly from the latter, and adapted upon being compressed inwardly to enter said tubular portions whereby said legs press fit tightly in said tubular portions.
2. A bracket for attachment to a water pipe as of claim 1, said arms extending diagonally outward from said clamp portion to said tubular portions.
3. A bracket for attachment to a water pipe as of claim 1, said clamp portion slanting from the top thereof downwardly and inwardly in position of use.
4. A bracket for attachment to a water pipe as of claim 2, said clamp portion slanting from the top thereof downwardly and inwardly in position of use.
