This invention relates to new and useful -im
provements in a thermos carrier.
The invention has for an object the construc
tion of a thermos carrier which is characterized
5- by a box shaped container and cover >associated
(ci. 224-45) '
including heat insulating material Illa and Ila,
respectively. The container IU has an innerwall
lining I0" of waterproof soft material, preferably
sheet rubber. The outer .surface of the container
Iß is covered with a layer of sheet metal ma-- 5

tainer I0 may also .be manufactured with un
covered metal with any suitable ñnish on its
- outer surface.

Still further the invention proposes to provide
an arrangement whereby when the cover of the
carrier is closed, the interior thereof is hermeti
cally sealed and so prevents the radiation of air
20 from the interior to the atmosphere with a con
cover is closed.
The cover II also has an outer
layer of metallic material IIc which is covered
by a layer of canvas or other cloth material Ild.
This cloth material IId preferably is a continu
ation' of the cloth material IIld at one side of 20 i

Another lobject resides in the provision of a
shelf element and an arrangement whereby the
shelf element may be fixed in various positions

ferent sizes;
For further comprehension of the invention,
and oi' the objects and advantages thereof, ref
erence will be had to the following description and
ß accompanying _Y drawing, and to the appended`
claims in -which the various novel features of the
invention are more particularly set forth.

constructed according to this invention.V
Fig. 2 is a plan view of Fig. 1 illustrated with
thecover open.

tainer -dividing off compartments for -various ob
jects. For example, there may7 be a compartment~
fora' bottle of seltzer l5, a bottle of milk I6, and a 30
bottle of water or soda il. For each compart
ment a small shelf element I8 is provided which
may be rested upon refrigerating material I9
placed into the compartment. 'I'his refrigerating
material may be carbon dioxide snow or ice, etc. 35
In Figs. 5 and 6 a modified form of the inven
tion has been disclosed in which a shelf element .
I8’ is shown which may be'supported in various
elevated positions in a novel manner. More par
tlcularly, opposed walls of the container are' 40
formed with a plurality ,of horizontal and spaced
.grooves 20.". These grooves are normally hid from
view by the sheet rubber material IIlb. The sheet
rubber material normally merely extends over
the grooves 20 so that when the inner'wall of the 45

against head elements 2l formed upon the outer
ends of the stems for normally retracting the
elements 2|. .The head elements 24 are forced
against cams 2l which vare fixed to stems 28 55
rotatively mounted in the shelf element I8'. The
upper ends 28' of these stems are squarek in
transverse cross 'section and disposed within
recesses 21 in the top face of the shelf element. ,
The stems 2i may be turned so that the cams
25 move the holding elements 2l outwards and'
force portions-of` the rubber layer I0" into certain
of the grooves 20 for holding the shelf elements
in fixed positions. The cams 25 may be turned
10 to other positions in which the springs 23 will
retract the holding elements 2i.
'I'he vertical partitions i4 may extend to cover

top having inner linings of sheet rubber and in-`
termediate linings of thermal insulating mate

two positions, in one of which the end of said
-bar extends beyond the edge of said shelf to en
gage the inside of said box, spring means for
normally urging said bar to retract to its other MD
position, and a cam having a control accessible
