BOTTLE HOLDER
Earl V. Johnson, Cleveland Heights, Ohio
Application August 19, 1937, Serial No. 159,955
(Cl. 248-107)
4 Claims.
This invention relates to bottle holders and is
especially useful with bottle holders of the self
feeding type for infants.
One object of this invention is to provide an
:1 improved bottle holder.
Another object is to
provide a bottle holder which is readily adjust
able. A‘ further object is to provide a bottle
holder adapted for holding bottles of various sizes
or shapes. Another object of this invention is to
ll) provide a self feeding infant’s bottle holder. An
other object is to provide a bottle holder which
can hold-the bottle out of the way after it has
served its ‘purpose. Yet a further object is to
provide a bottle holder which will always keep the
_. in nipple full of milk so that the baby will not suck
air. Other objects and advantages of this inven
tion will appear from the following description
when taken in connection with the accompanying
drawing.

I attain the foregoing objects and others inci
dental thereto by‘forming a self feeding bottle
holder of a pair of bent wire members one of
which has a supporting loop portion and the other
of which has a bottle-neck holding portion.
In the drawing Figure l is a side- elevation of a
self feeding bottle holder incorporating features
ing inwardly from the arms of‘the bent wire,
however, it is equally feasible to have them ex
tending outwardly although the former mode of
construction is preferred.
In Figure 5 a portion of the neck supporting 01
loop member is shown, having side arms 23 and
24 which are ‘substantially straight and which do
not have the distinct loop construction as ob~
served in Figure 2, at 25 and 26.
The loop I2
is placed on the bed under the head of the infant 10
and the side arms with their end convolutions l3
and I‘! rest on the bed to place the bottle holder
in a self feeding position.
I
The other one of the pair of bent wire mem
berscomprises the bottle holding member, hav 15
ing the bottle neck engaging loop portion I3
which is preferably a double loop as shown or may
be of the single loop type. This member is flex
ible and contains the bottle neck engaging portion
21 which is arranged to yieldably engage with a
small neck bottle or the large open neck type of
bottle. It will be readily appreciated that bottles
having intermediate sizes will also be easily held
in de?nite position. The bottle neck engaging
portion continues into the bottle supporting arms 25
29 and 3|] extending from. the loop. These arms
are bent in a downwardly extending direction
of this invention. Figure 2 is a plan view of the
same. Figure 3 is a detail view on the line 3-3
of Figure 1. Figure 4 is a detail view of the hear
30 ing members. Figure 5 illustrates a variation in
having the downwardly extending portions 3| and
32 respectively each terminating in a convolution
holder including features of ' this invention is
same pitch so that convolutions 33 and 34 will
readily nest within convolutions I6 and IT as a
male and female spiral in the manner of comple
shape of the neck engaging loop.
Considering the various ?gures of the drawing
in greater detail, a self feeding infant’s bottle
shown in side elevation in Figure l. The bottle
holder comprises a pair of bent wire members Ill
and II, the former of which has a base loop por
tion l2 and the latter of which has a bottle neck
engaging portion I3. The base member may
partake of various shapes each of which has the
base or supporting loop, and a pair of arms l4
and I5 extending therefrom in the same general
direction.
The arms are formed at one end into
as at 33 and 34.
,
The convolutions are preferably wound in a
decreasing spiral form, the spirals having the
mentary screw threads. Although it is prefer
able to make these convolutions in a spiral form,
they of course, may be formed differently if
another con?guration is desired.
The infant’s milk bottle may be rested on
the arms 29 and .30 with the neck portion en
gaged by the loop 21 and the loop 12 under the
baby’s head, then by moving the levers l8 and 19
a pair of axially aligned convolutions‘ l6 and I1
having extending end portions l8 and I9 con
in a counter-clockwise direction the radii of the
stituting one or more levers which operate upon
movement in such a manner as to increase the
tional engagement between the convolutions is
decreased. The bottle holding member may be
readily adjusted to proper self feeding position
radii of the convolutions in Figure 2. These
levers are shown as having oppositely extending
portions 20 and 2| which may be secured to
gether as by welding at point 22. If desired, one
of these levers may be dispensed with and the
releasing operation effected by means of a single
lever.
The convolutions have been shown as extend
outer convolutions are increased so that the fric- . ,
at which time the levers are released and the
frictional engagement is resumed. It will be
understood that if the convolutions l6 and H
extend outwardly the convolutions on the bottle
holding member would then preferably extend
inwardly, instead of outwardly as shown.
The holder is so constructed that the bottle 55

while in use for feeding is always in position so
that the nipple is full of milk. The baby will not
suck air. Furthermore, the baby can rest oc
casionally without affecting the position of the
bottle and without having to hold it. After the
bottle is empty the loop can be swung around so
that the bottle will be held upright out of the
way.
Although this invention is described in con
10 nection with its adaptation to children’s milk
bottle holders, it has other ?elds of use such as
for holding commercial dispensers for liquids or
powders, etc. It is understood of course that the
thickness or strength of the metal parts may be
formed into a pair of axially aligned inwardly
extending convolutions and at least one of said
convolutions having an inwardly extending end
portion constituting a lever operating upon move
ment to change the radii of one of the convolu
tions; the other of said wires being bent inter
mediate its ends to form a bottle neck engaging
loop and being provided with bottle supporting
arms extending from said loop and having out
wardly extending convolutions at their extremi 10
ties in nested relation to and frictionally engaged
by the ?rst mentioned convolutions, said last
mentioned convolutions being released from fric
varied. Variations coming Within the true spirit
tional engagement by the ?rst convolutions upon
movement of said lever in one direction.

and scope of this invention are covered by the
of bent wire members; one of said wire mem
15 increased or decreased and the overall size also
appended claims.

and having extending end portions constituting
levers operating upon movement to change the
radii of said convolutions; the other of said wires
