Massenberg Attorney, Agent, or Firm-Zarley, McKee & Thomte [5 7] ABSTRACT A temporary drain connection means is disclosed herein for placing a sink in use when the garbage disposal unit has been removed therefrom. A hose support means is placed in the sink opening and is adapted to have a flexible hose secured thereto which may be connected to the existing gas trap pipe. A flat plate and nut are mounted on the support means to rigidly secure the support means to the garbage disposal support bracket. Connection means is also provided for connecting the hose to the hose support means and for connecting the other end of the hose to the gas trap pipe.
4 Claims, 4 Drawing Figures TEMPORARY DRAIN CONNECTION MEANS The use of garbage disposal units has greatly increased during recent years. The units are positioned below a sink and are in communication with the sink drain. It is frequently necessary to remove the garbage disposal units for repair and the sinks are not usable during the time that the units are removed therefrom. This fact makes it extremely inconvenient when the units must be taken to the appliance shop for repair.
Therefore, it is a principal object of this invention to provide a temporary drain connection means.
A further object of this invention is to provide a means for temporarily connecting a sink with the gas trap pipe when the garbage disposal unit has been removed therefrom.
A further object of this invention is to provide a temporary drain connection means which is connected to the garbage disposal bracket which remains on the sink when the garbage disposal unit is removed therefrom.
A further object of this invention is to provide a temporary drain connection which is easily installed on a sink.
A further object of this invention is to provide a temporary drain connection means having a flexible hose portion thereon to permit ease of connection to various sink installations.
A further object of this invention is to provide a temporary drain connection means which is economical to manufacture, durable in use and refined in appearance.
These and other objects will be apparent to those skilled in the art.
This invention consists in the construction, arrangements and combination of the various parts of the device, whereby the objects contemplated are attained as hereinafter more fully set forth, specifically pointed out in the claims, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which:
FIG. 1 is a side view of a typical sink having a garbage disposal unit secured thereto;
FIG. 2 is a view similar to FIG. 1 except that the garbage disposal unit has been removed from the sink and the device of this invention installed thereon;
FIG. 3 is an enlarged partial sectional view seen along lines 3-3 of FIG. 2; and
FIG. 4 is a partial exploded perspective view of the device of this invention.
The numeral 10 refers generally to a typical sink having a drain opening 12 formed in the bottom thereof. The numeral 14 refers to a garbage disposal bracket which is positioned in the drain opening 12 as illustrated in FIG. 3. The disposal bracket 14 includes a ring-like portion 16 to which the garbage disposal unit 18 is normally secured. A drain pipe portion extends downwardly from the unit 18 with its lower end portion being connected to a gas trap pipe by connector in conventional fashion.
Removal of the unit 18 is accomplished in conventional fashion and it is necessary to disconnect the pipe portion at a connector. The device of this invention is designated by the reference numeral 32 and is used to place the sink in service when the unit 18 has been removed therefrom. The device 32 comprises generally a flat disc-like plate 36 having a central opening 38 formed therein and an externally threaded pipe 42 se- LII 2 cured to and extending downwardly from plate 36. Th numeral 44 designates a flexible hose having a flanged connector 46 mounted in its upper end and maintained therein by a clamp. A flanged connector is mounted in the lower end of hose 44 by means of another clamp. A conventional round nut is rotatably mounted on the connector 46 for fluidly connecting the upper end of the hose 44 to the pipe 42. A washer is positioned between the lower end of pipe 42 and the flange of connector as illustrated in FIG. 3. A conventional internally threaded round nut is rotatably mounted on the connector for fluidly connecting the hose 44 to a gas trap pipe. The numeral refers to a disc-like plate having a central opening 64 formed therein. A nut 52 is provided and is adapted to be threadably received in the pipe 42 as will be explained hereinafter.
When it is desired to place the sink in service such as when the garbage disposal unit 18 has been removed therefrom as previously described, it is simply necessary to position the plate 36 in the sink so that the pipe 42 extends downwardly through the opening 12 as illustrated in FIG. 3. An apertured plate is then slipped upwardly over the lower end of the pipe 42 and moved upwardly thereon so that it engages the underside of the portion 16 of the garbage disposal bracket 14 as also illustrated in FIG. 3. The nut 52 is then threadably tightened on the pipe 42 as shown in FIG. 3 which causes the plate 36 to be drawn tightly into sealing engagement with the sink so that the device 32 is rigidly secured to the sink.
A connector is then threadably secured to the lower end of pipe 42 with a washer being positioned as shown in FIG. 3. Connector is then threadably secured to gas trap pipe as also shown in FIG. 3. The flexible hose 44 permits the device to adapt to various sink installations and permits ease of connection of the various components. The device is then ready for use to provide a temporary connection between the sink and the gas trap pipe during the time that the garbage disposal-unit 18 is removed from the sink. The device is easily removed from the sink by simply disconnecting the connectors, and then removing nut 52. The plate 36 and pipe 42 may then be removed from the sink.
Thus it can be seen that the device accomplishes at least all of its stated objectives.
We claim:
1. In combination with a sink having a garbage disposal support bracket secured thereto positioned below the sink drain opening, and a drain pipe means having an open end,
a temporary drain connection means maintaining the sink in use when the garbage disposal unit has been removed from the garbage disposal support bracket comprising a support means removably secured to the disposal support bracket and disposal and a flexible hose means secured to said support means with one of its ends in fluid communication with the sink drain opening and its other end in fluid communication with the drain pipe means,
said support means comprising a horizontally disposed, first flat plate having a central opening formed therein, an externally threaded pipe means secured thereto in communication with said central opening and extending downwardly therefrom, said first flat plate being positioned over said drain opening in sealing engagement with said sink around said sink drain opening, said externally threaded pipe means extending downwardly through said sink drain opening wherein said garbage disposed support bracket includes a ringshaped portion, and wherein a horizontally disposed, second flat plate having a central opening formed therein receives said externally threaded pipe means, and a nut means is threadably mounted on said pipe means below said second plate causing said second plate to engage said ringshaped portion and causing said first plate to sealably engage said sink.

Claims (4)
