Application August 3, 1936, Serial No. 94,008 ' 4 claims. This invention relates to new and useful -im provements in a thermos carrier. y 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 10 (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 therewith, and including heat insulating material. terial Illc o'ver which there is secured a layer of ‘ .With this construction it is possible to store vari ous bottles of beverages and other material within said carrier for maintaining their' initial tem canvas or other clothvmaterial Illd.

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 sequent change in temperature. .the container. namely, the 'side ID’ and forms a A further object of the invention resides in the hinge for the ccf'er. The remaining three sides provision of rubber or the like partitions within' ‘ are provided with hook fasteners I2 by whichthe the carrier for dividing off compartments, and 25 prevents the various bottles from breaking whe the carrier is roughly handled. ' Another lobject resides in the provision of a shelf element and an arrangement whereby the shelf element may be fixed in various positions "l0 in the carrier to divide ofi’ compartments of dif 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. In the accompanying' drawing forming a mate rial part of this disclosure: 40 Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a thermos'carrier constructed according to this invention.V Fig. 2 is a plan view of Fig. 1 illustrated with thecover open. ' , n 1 Fig. 3 is a sectional view as though taken on ß the -line 3_3 of Fig. 2 but illustrated with- the cover closed. ' l Fig. 5 is a view similar to Fig.' 4 but illustrating » . „ 4 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 Several slidable elements 2| have stem por ards 22 mounted on the bottom face of the shelf n 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 comprising, in combination with a container and top having inner linings of sheet rubber and in-` termediate linings of thermal insulating mate rial, a removable shelf mounted in said casing'. said shelf having at least one bar slidably at tached thereto. said bar being slidable between 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 trom the top of said shelf for forcing said bar ‘ i I and be of heat insulating material to permit to an extended position. 3. A device as set forth in claim 2, the inter , the keeping of the various compartments in the> _ mediate lining of said container being provided 15 thermos carrier at different temperatures. with a recess on the side adjacent the sheet rub While I have illustrated and described the pre ferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be ber lining, into which the end of said bar may understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the 20 right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as de ñned in the appended claims. *Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to Secure by United v25 States Letters Patent is:l 1. In a thermos carrier, a container having lso engage, said rubber lining being bent into said recess by said bar whereby a smooth surface is presented by said rubber lining when said shelf it@ is removed. 4.
