Application August 25, 1936, Serial No. 97,719
2 Claims.
(01. 5-320)
This invention relates to new and useful im
provements in an adjustable means for attaching
quilts, blankets, etc., to cribs.
The invention has for an object to associate
5 fastening elements upon said quilt or similar
article spaced in from the edge portions thereof
and associated with strips having at their ends
coacting fasteners for releasable attachment on
said quilt or similar article.
Still further the invention contemplates the
provision of gripping elements on the other ends
of said strips and adapted to engage certain of
the vertical rods in the sides of a crib so as to
permit the quilt to move vertically, but restrained
from lateral motion.
A feature of the arrangement resides in the
fact that the quilt or similar article will be re
strained from slipping off from a child laying in
the crib, while at the same time it may move ver
“ tically to permit turning and tossing during sleep.
,
A further feature of the invention resides in
an arrangement whereby the strips are attached
to the edge portions of the quilt or other article
in a manner so as to permit the edge portions to
continually extend downwards over the sides of
themattress of the crib in all vertical positions
of the quilt or similar article.
Another one of the objects of the invention re
sides in the speci?c construction of the gripping
elements to adapt them for convenient operation.
3O
Still further the invention contemplates ar
ranging the strips from elastic material so as to
be automatically adjustable to ?t the quilt to
cribs of varying widths.
Another one of the objects resides in a pro
vision which permits the strips to be adjusted
longitudinally along the length of the quilt or
similar article so that they may be properly lo
cated to engage the vertical bars of the side
portions of the crib.
For further comprehension of the invention,
and of the objects and advantages thereof, ref
erence will be had to the following description
and accompanying drawings, and to the ap
45 pended claims in which the various novel fea
40
tures of the invention are more particularly set
forth.
In the accompanying drawings forming a ma
terial part of this disclosure:

The adjustable means for attaching quilts,
blankets and the like to cribs is intended for co
operation with a crib [0 having a plurality of
vertical side rods Illa. In all respects the crib is
of conventional construction and for this reason
the details thereof will not be given in this speci
?cation. The reference numeral ll indicates
generally a quilt or blanket or similar article.
Fastening elements I2 (see Figs. 3 and 5) are
arranged upon said quilt ll spaced in from the
edge portions I la thereof. Strips [3 have one of
their ends coacting with the fastening elements
l2 and the other of their ends provided with grip
ping elements l4 adapted to engage certain of
the vertical rods Illa.
The quilt ll preferably is of rectangular shape
and adapted to engage upon the mattress and
covering sheets of the crib. This quilt If is
adapted to cover a child sleeping in the crib. The
fastening elements I2 comprise sections of snap I
fasteners. These fastening elements l2 coact
with complementary fastening elements l2’ ar
ranged upon the inner ends of the strips 13. The
strips l3 comprise elastic material so as to be
stretchable to permit the holding means to en
gage cribs of slightly different widths. The grip
ping elements l4 comprise a piece of spring steel
or other similar material bent into a speci?c
shape.
As illustrated in Figs. 6 and 7, each of the grip
ping elements l4 comprises a piece of spring steel
formed with a gripping element M’ which con
sists of a piece of spring wire turned at its cen
tral portion into several turns Me which form a
loop for the elastic l3 to engage therethrough as 60

previously described relative to the prior form.
From the coiled portion Me semi-circular portions
Mi project, which terminate in interengageable
end portions Mg. According to this form of the
invention it is necessary that the interengaging
portions M8 be forced to disengage each other
and then the semi-circular portions Mi be drawn
apart to open them so that the gripping element
may be engaged upon a vertical rod of the crib.
In Figs. 4 and 5 a slightly modi?ed form of the
invention has been disclosed which distinguishes
merely in the construction of the gripping ele
ments. According to this form of the invention
there is a circular portion Me at its center and
15 extended into several turns and forming a loop
through which the strap 93 may pass. The strap
I3 is of double material engaged at its center
through the loop Ma and secured in position by a
line of stitches 53°‘. The material of the outer
20 end portion of the strap I3 is secured together by
the snap fastener element l2’.
_From the coiled portion W1 the gripping ele
ment continues into opposed outwardly directed
loop portions Mb, each of which continues into a
25 semi-circular portion l4“, terminating in inter
engageable ends Md. The interengageable ends
are merely partially twisted to engage each other.
The portions Ill’3 are adapted to engage the ver
tical posts We of the crib.
The portions Mb are
adapted to be squeezed together to open the por
tions ‘Mic so that the gripping elements may be
engaged on the post.
The strips 53 and the associated gripping ele
ments l 4 may be removed from the quilt H by dis
engagement of the snap fastener l2 and I2’. The
quilt may then be laundered. These parts may be
re-engaged when desired, and serve to adjustably
hold the quilt in position upon the crib.
In Figs. 8 and 9 a modi?ed form of the inven
40 tion has been disclosed in which provision is made
for adjusting the holding means both laterally
and longitudinally. More speci?cally, the quilt H
has small strips I6 secured along portions spaced
in from the edge portions thereof, and located
45 near the corners or throughout the entire length
of the quilt. These strips l6 are secured in posi
tion by lines of stitches l1 along the edges there
of. A cord or other fastening element I8 is laced
through holes in the strips it so as to present a
50
plurality of looped portions It?a extending. along
the length of the strips l 6.
,
The ends “lb of the cord I8 are tied together in
a knot. Associated with each cord l8 there is a
strip l3’ which is adapted to be releasably engaged ,
55 on any one of the loop portions l8a.
Speci?cally,
the strip l3’ has its end portion engaged through
one of the loops and is so held in position by snap
fastener elements l2a upon adjacent parts there
of. These snap fastener elements may be opened
to permit the strip I3’ to be disengaged from the
loop Hill.
A gripping element M is mounted on the ex
tended end of the strip I3’. A feature of the con
struction resides in the fact that the holding
65 means may be shifted longitudinally by engaging
the strip l3’ through the several loops m. The
holding means may be adjusted transversely by
opening the knot W1 of the cord l8 and drawing
the cord in or leaving it out, as the case may be.
70
When tension is applied to the holding means,
the various loops HP will ?atten out and disap
pear, except the one through which the strip I3 is
passed. The size of this particular loop may be
controlled by leaving out or drawing in of the knot
75 I81” of the cord l8.
In Figs. 10 and 11 another modi?ed form of
the invention has been disclosed in which an ar
rangement is provided by which the holding
means may be adjusted longitudinally. A cord or
other ?lling element 20 is forced inwards from the
bottom side of the quilt H and is secured in this
position by a line of stitches 2|. The cord 20 is
extended longitudinally spaced in from the edge
portions of the quilt l I at the ends thereof. Thus,
a projecting portion 22 is formed on the top of the 10
quilt.
'
A metallic clip 23 is adapted to be clipped on the
projecting portion 22 anywheres along its length.
This metallic clip 23 is connected with the strip
[3, which in turn supports at its outer end the
gripping element l4. It will be readily understood
that the clip 23 may be shifted to various posi
tions along the longitudinal length. of the pro
jected portion 22 and so the location thereof may
be adjusted to ?t the spacing of the vertical bars
I 1a of the crib.
In Figs. 12, 13 and 14, a still further modi?ed
form of the invention .has been disclosed in
which a plurality of loops 25 made of a continu
ous braid, are stitched to a strip 28 at 21. The
strip 26 is stitched to the quilt H, at 28, spaced
from the edge portions 1 la. Gripping elements
Ill’ are connected to one end of elastic strips l3’.
The other end of each‘elastic strip ‘I3’ is engaged
by loop 29 of an anchor pin 30. This anchor pin is 30
pulled through one of the loops 25, for selectively
locating the gripping elements l4’ at the par
ticular loop 25 which is in the closest vicinity of
the desired vertical side rods I03. The length of
the elastic strips I3’ may be adjusted by a suit 35
able adjusting buckle 13".
While I have illustrated and described the
preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to
be understood that I do not limit myself to the
precise constructions’ herein disclosed and "the
right is reserved to all changes and modi?cations
coming within the scope of the invention’ as de
?ned in the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention, what ‘I.
claim as new, and desire to secure by United:
States Letters Patent, is:—
1. In adevice of the class described, a bed
cover for use on a crib having vertical side rods, :
strips attached longitudinally .of and .on said bed
cover along the side portions thereof, cords
threaded through openings in said strips and hav 50
ing their ends tied together by which loop por
tions may be formed along the length of said
strip by drawing in and letting out portionsof
said cords, fastening elements engaging through»
said loop portions at .one of their ‘ends and
adapted to be connected with said Irods at the‘
other of their ends.
2. In a device of the'class describedpa bed.
cover for use on a crib having vertical side rods,’v .60
strips attached longitudinally of and on said
bed cover along the side portions thereof, cords
threaded through openings in said strips and hav
ing their ends tied together by which loop por
tions may be formed along the length of said
strip by drawing in and letting out portions of said
cords, fastening elements engaging through said
loop portions at one of their ends and‘adapted to
be connected with said rods at the other of their
ends, said fastening elements being selectively?‘
engageable with various loop portions formed on 70
said strip to align said fastening elements with
said side rods so that they may be easily engaged
therewith.
