HEADREST ATTACHMENT FOB BA'I‘HTUBS
Stella Rotolo, Elizabeth, N. J.
Application October 7, 1937, ‘Serial No. 167,837
4 Claims.
An adjustable head support per se is carried by
ful improvements in headrest attachment for
bath tubs.
The primary object of the invention is to pro
vide a headrest attachment for bath tubs espe
cially designed for use by women for the protec
tion of the head and hair to keep the hair in a
the skeleton frame and includes a pair of arms
' dry condition while taking a bath.
A further object of the invention is to provide
10 a headrest attachment for bath tubs of the fore
going character wherein the headrest is placed
at one end of a bath tub and retained in position
therein by means of suction cups engaged with
a wall of the tub or a hook to be engaged with a
15 tub ?ange with an adjustable frame embodying
a spring element and a rubberized sheet or the
like for the support of the head at the proper
elevation with respect to the water level in the
bath tub.

_ (Cl. 4--185)
This invention relates to' certain new and use—
.
'
With the above and other objects in view that
will become apparent as the nature of the in
vention is better understood, the same consists
in the novel form, combination and arrangement
of parts hereinafter more fully described, shown
in the accompanying drawing and claimed.
In the drawing:—
Figure l is a'vertical cross-sectional view of a
headrest attachment for bath tubs constructed
in accordance with the present invention, one
end of a bath tub being fragmentarily illustrated
in section with the attachment anchored in posi
tion by means of suction cups;
Figure 2 is a perspective view of the headrest
attachment for bath tubs removed from the tub
and with the rubber or ?exible headrest per se
removed from the support; and
Figure 3 is a fragmentary perspective view of
a hook device for anchoring the attachment in
position in lieu of suction cups.

Referring more in detail to the accompanying
drawing and particularly to Figure 2, the head
rest attachment for bath tubs comprises a skele
ton frame having end plates 5 of substantially
triangular formation with substantially lower
45 straight edges 6 that are connected at their for
ward ends by a forward cross rail 1. The upper
ends of the plates 5 are connected by a head
rail 8. When the headrest is placed in a bath
tub 9 as shown in Figure 1, the same may be
50 placed at the desired elevation with respect to
the bottom of the bath tub and the level of water
in the tub, the head rest being anchored in posi
tion at one end of the tub by means of suction
cups l0 supported on the head rail 8 as at H and
55 engaged with the end wall of the bath tub.
i2 respectively pivoted as at I3 at their upper
ends to the upper ends of the end plates 5 of the
skeleton frame While a relatively stiff coil spring 5
it is anchored at its ends to the forward free
ends of the arms E2. The forward edges of the
end plates of the skeleton frame form a continu
ous arc and are toothed as at I5 to be engaged
by opposite ends of a rod it carried by the lower 10
end of a pair of links H respectively pivoted as
at 88 to the arms l2 intermediate the ends
thereof. It will be understood that the arms 12
are adjustable in vertical directions by changing
the supporting points of the rod it on the teeth 15
l5. A rubberized or other ?exible sheet 19 is
anchored at one edge to the head rail 8, the ends
thereof being anchored to the upper sides of
the arms 52 while the lower end of the sheet is
20
secured to the spring 14.
With the device positioned as illustrated in
Figure 1, a person reclining in the bath tub 9
supports his head on the ?exible sheet is and
the resiliency of the spring Ill at the lower ends
of the arms l2 provides an exceptionally com
fortable support. The elevation of the arms l2
may be varied so that the hair of the bather
while reclining in the tub may be supported at
a sufficient distance above the water level in the
30
tub to maintain the hair in a dry condition.
In lieu of the suction cups l0‘ for securing the
headrest in position, there is shown in Figure 3
a wire construction of hook Mia carried by a head
rail 8a of a headrest that is especially adapted
for use in connection with bath tubs having an
exposed top ?ange.
From the above detailed description of the in
vention, it is believed that the construction and
use thereof will at once be apparent and while
there are herein shown and described the pre
ferred embodiments of the invention, it is never
theless to be understood that minor changes may
be made therein without departing from the
spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.
