3 Claims. (Cl. 190-17)
Our invention relates to a carrying case hav
ing compartments and movable trays in which
toilet and other personal articles may be con
veniently carried. An object of the invention is
swung inwardly to the respective positions shown
by Fig. 3.
Different means may be employed whereby the
movements of the trays I6 are automatically con
For Ul

the case is opened it will swing the trays up
wardly to a position where their contents will
be readily accessible, and conversely when the
lid is lowered it will swing the trays downwardly
10 to permit the lid to close.
Other objects will hereinafter appear and in
order that the invention may be fully understood,
reference will now be had to the accompanying
drawing, in which:

Fig. 1 is a perspective View of the case with
the lid thereof in open position.
Fig. 2 is an enlarged cross section on line 2-2
of Fig. 1.
~
Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section of the case with
the lid in closed position.
Fig. 4 is a detail perspective of part of the
means through which the movements of the trays
are controlled by the lid.
Referring in detail to the different parts, 2
25 designates the body of the case which is divided
into a relatively large central compartment 4 and
two narrow end compartments 6 by means of
of links 26 and two sets of hinges 32 and 34.
Each hinge comprises two leaves, one leaf of each
hinge 32 being connected to the respective par
titions I4 and the other connected by a pivot 28
to the adjacent end of the respective links 26.
One leaf of each hinge 34 is connected to the ad
jacent tray I6 and the other connected by a
pivot 38 to the end of the adjacent link 26. The
hinges 32 are arranged at suitable angles to the 15
hinges 34 to permit the trays to move at right
angles or transversely to the movement of the
lid 8.
With the foregoing arrangement it is appar
ent that when the lid 8 is raised to open position
it will, through the intermediary of the links 26
and hinges 32 and 34, swing the trays I6 upwardly
and outwardly a quarter of a revolution to the
position shown by Fig. 1, and conversely when
the lid is closed it will swing the trays down
wardly into the compartments 6.

contacting with the same when the lid 8 is
closed, as shown by Fig. 3.

claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. A case comprising a body, a lid hinged to

body 2 in dilïerent ways. For example we have
shown the bottoms I8 of the` trays I6 connected
45 to the respective Yend walls of the body 2 by
hinges 20. Each bottom I8 has an extension 2I
which projects beyond the adjacent side wall
