LIFE PRESERVER HOLDER
Capitola E. Blow, Hartford, Conn.
Application December 19, 1936, Serial No. 116,805
3 Claims.
The present invention relates to new and use
ful improvements in life preserver holders of the
‘type generally similar to that constituting the
‘subject matter of U. S. Patent No. 924,881, issued
on June 15, 1909.
The primary object of this invention is to pro
(0]. 114-190)
Secured to the joists l which carry the hinges
3 are brackets it to which arcuate arms II are
pivotally connected, at one end, as at 12. The
arcuate arms I i, it will be noted, are mounted for
swinging movement in a vertical plane on the
brackets ill. The’ brackets ill are grooved or
vide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, a life
channeled longitudinally, as at it, (see Fig. 6)
preserver holder of the aforementioned character
embodying novel means for automatically return
10 ing the hinged rack to its raised out of the way
position after the life preservers have been dis
charged or removed therefrom.
Other objects of the invention are to provide a
life preserver holder of the character described
to accommodate the arcuate arms I l.
The free end portions of the arms II are con
nected to the end members 5 of the rack ll
through the medium of links M. As best seen in
15 which will be comparatively simple in construc
tion, strong, durable, highly ef?cient and reliable
in use, compact and which may be manufactured
at low cost.
_
All of the foregoing and still further objects
20 and advantages of the invention will become ap
parent from a study of the following speci?cation,
Fig. 5 of the drawings, the links M comprise
oppositely turned end portions it which are jour
nalled in the arms it and the end members 5 of
the rack ii. Coil springs it connect the free ends 15
of the arms H to extensions ll which project
longitudinally from one end of the brackets l0.
Additional coil springs it connect the rack 4 to
the joists i which carry the brackets 1H and the
hinges 3, said coil springs It being connected at
drawings wherein like characters of reference
one end to the end members 5 of said rack 4. An
chored to the rack it at an intermediate point and
depending therefrom is a. pull rope 19 having a
designate corresponding parts throughout the
suitable handle 2% on its lower end. ‘
taken in connection with the accompanying
25 several views, and wherein:
Figure 1 is a view in end elevation of a life pre
server holder embodying the present invention.
Figure 2 is a view similar to Fig. 1 showing the
rack in lowered position.
Figure 3 is a View in front elevation of the in
vention.
Figure 4 is a bottom plan view of an end portion
of the invention.
Figure 5 is a detail view in perspective of one of
35 the rack connecting links.
Figure 6 is a detail view in vertical longitudinal
30
section through one of the lever or arm attaching
brackets.
.
It is thought that the operation of the inven 25
tion will be readily apparent from a considera
tion of the foregoing. To discharge or remove
the life preservers 9 from the compartments 8, the
rack 4 is swung downwardly on the hinges 3
against the tension of the coil springs 16 and I8
through the medium of the pull rope i9. After
the life preservers have been discharged or re
moved and the rack 4 has been released, the
springs 18 return the arms H to raised position
and the springs 18 swing said rack 4 upwardly on 35
the links it. It will thus be seen that a compact
but strong and durable arrangement has been
provided for returning the rack 4 to its raised,
Referring now to the drawings in detail, it will
out-of-the-way position after the life preservers
40 be seen that the reference numeral l designates
have been removed.
It is believed that the many advantages of a
life preserver holder constructed in accordance
with the present invention will be readily under
stood and although a preferred embodiment of
the device is as illustrated and described, it is to
be understood that changes in the details of con
struction and in the combination and arrange
ment of parts may be resorted to which will fall
within the scope of the invention as claimed.
What is claimed is:-—
l. A life preserver holder comprising a rack
hingedly mounted beneath a support for swing
ing movement in a vertical plane, arcuate arms
the joists which support the deck 2 of a boat.
Hingedly mounted for swinging movement in a
vertical plane on certain of the joists l, as at 3,
is a rack which is designated generally by the
45 reference numeral 4. The rack 4 comprises end
members 5 on the lower edges of which slats 6 are
secured, said end members 5 being attached to
the hinges 3. Mounted on the slats 5 are parti
tions 7, which together with the end members 5,
50 are adapted for abutting engagement with the
lower edges of the adjacent joists I. As illus
trated to advantage in Fig. 3 of the drawings,
the construction and arrangement is such as to
provide compartments 8 for the reception of life
55 preservers 9 when the rack 4 is in raised position.
pivotally connected, at one end, to the support,
links pivotally connecting the rack to the free end 55

portions of said arms, coil springs connected to
said arms for yieldingly supporting said arms
in raised position, and coil springs connected to
the rack for yieldingly supporting said rack in
raised position on the arms.
2. A life preserver holder of the class described
comprising a rack hingedly mounted for swinging
movement in a vertical plane beneath a support,
brackets rigidly secured on the support and in
cluding longitudinal extensions at one end, arcu
ate arms pivotally connected, at one end, to the
other ends of the brackets, said brackets having
longitudinal grooves therein accommodating the
arcuate arms, links pivotally connected, at one
end, to the free end portions of the arcuate arms
and at their other ends to the rack, coil springs
connected, at one end, to the bracket extensions
and at their other ends to the free end portions of
the arcuate arms for yieldingly supporting said
20 arcuate arms in raised position, and coil springs
connected, at one end, to the support and at their
other ends to the rack for yieldingly supporting
rack in raised position relative to the arcuate
‘ arms.
3. In combination with a deck structure in
cluding spaced joists, a rack hingedly mounted
for swinging movement in a vertical plane be
neath said deck structure, said rack including
end members hingedly connected to certain of
the joists, slats mounted on said end members,
partitions mounted on said slats, said partitions
and the end members being adapted for abutting
engagement with the lower edges of the joists
and, in conjunction therewith, de?ning compart
ments for the reception of life preservers, and
means for yieldingly securing the rack in raised 10
position beneath the deck structure, said means
including brackets rigidly secured on said certain
joists, said brackets comprising extensions pro
jecting longitudinally from one end, substantial
1y arcuate arms pivotally connected, at one end, 15
to the other ends of said brackets, the bracket
having longitudinal grooves therein accommo
dating the arms, coil springs connected, at one
end, to the extensions and at their other ends to
the free end portions of the arms, links pivotally
connected, at one end, to the free end portions of
the arms and at their other ends to the end mem
bers of the rack, and coil springs connected, at
one end, to said certain joists and at their other
ends to the end members of the rack.
