Application September 14, 1936, Serial No. 100,635 5 Claims. ('Cl. 5-345) This invention relates to a mattress and In the drawing forming part of this specili cushion handle wherein it is desirable to pro vide a handle formed of a ribbon-like webbing cation: Figure 1 is a perspective detail portion of a portion of a mattress or cushion, showing my which extends along the boxing longitudinally, 5. and which is adapted to be anchored at its ends with :finishing plates. handle attached thereto. ‘ forcing anchoring leaf spring plate bowed inward. Figure 3 is a longitudinal enlarged section, 10'. similar to Figure 2, however, showing the web handle lying flat against the outer surface of the boxing, while the anchoring leaf spring lies flat ing longitudinally of the boxing in line with the web handle on the outside of the boxing. Further, the flexible reinforcing ribbon-like against the inner wall of the boxing, the anchor’ ing leaf spring acting as a spring force to position leaf spring provides a load bearing plate for the ends of the handle so that any strain carried by the handle will be transmitted to the inner wall of the boxing and carried by the load bearing plate-like ends of the flexible reinforcing 2o member. the handle in this position when notengaged Figure 4 is an enlarged inner viewof the unit web handle, showing end plate eyelets attached to the webbing. . -"«) Vidually and separately attaches and clamps to the ends of the web handle. „ It is also a feature of this invention to provide a unitary reinforced and finished end web handle which is adapted to be atached to a boxing by 35. ventilator eyelets to connect the handle tothe leaf spring anchoring plate extending in line with the handle along the inner surface of -the box ing, the Ventilating eyelets serving to attach the unit web handle assembly to the load bearing plate ends of the iiexible anchoring member. Thus the ventilator eyelets do not act inde pendently to attach the end finishing plates of the handle assembly and the flexible inner rein forcing means to the boxing. Therefore I pro 1:. Cl vide a very desirable handle of this character be cause it is much stronger, the webbing of the handle being reinforced separately of the venti lating eyelets to prevent pulling out of the ends of the web handle. , ` Figure 5 is an outer perspective view of one of The invention further includes a unitary as sembly of the webbing handle with the end finishing plate eyelets. This unit assembly in cludes the ribbon-like web handle with holes 2:5 punched in the end and the end finishing eyelet plates secured through the hole to form a rein forcing eyelet and adapted to cover the end of the web handle providing a finishing end mem ber as well as a reinforcing eyelet which indi 5.. Figure 2 is a longitudinal enlarged section of my handle, showing the web handle bowed out wardly and the boxing wall with the inner rein A primary feature resides in providing a han dle for a mattress, cushion and the like, wherein a reinforcing inner flexible ribbon-like leaf spring is adapted to form an anchoring means,’spacer, and a flexible reinforcing plate means extend~ the end plate eyelets. Y 270; Figure 6 is an inner perspective View of the end plate eyelet. - ' Figure 7 is a perspective view of the Ventilating eyelet or grommet. ` , The drawing illustrates a portion of a mattress 2.5, or cushion A which is provided with a vertical boxing wall B which extends about the mattress or cushion. The feature of this invention is to provide a handle C which may be easily engaged by the hand to lift the mattress or cushion, and in the construction illustrated, the hand engag ing portion I ll of the handle is formed of any suitable webbing to provide a ribbon-like con 3.91 struction. It is important in attaching the han~ , 3.5:, die C that a strong, durable construction be pro vided which will permit mattresses or cushions, even of the heavier type, to be readily lifted and carried by these handles. The ribbon-like webbing handle I0 is adapted ,40 to be formed into a unit by providing finishing end plate eyelets I I which are formed with a round end portion I2 and an inner arcuated edge portion I3. The finishing end plate eyelets are formed with a reinforcing rearwardly projecting 45 fiange Ill which extends around the end I2 and which is pivotal at its ends where it joins with the arcuated inner edge I3. These end plates II are formed with an inwardly extending collar por tion I5 to provide an eyelet when the inner edges 50 A further feature resides in an end finishing plate having an arcuated inner edge rather than of the collar I5 are utrned over to provide an a straight transverse edge which permits the flex ` choring flange means I5 which extend around ing of the handle without undue strain on the a hole formed in the ends of the webbing I0 to reinforce the hole and to securely anchor the ends 5. edges of the finishing plate. of the web handle I0 to the end finishing plate 55 2,131,212 2 eyelets II. This handle unit assembly is then ready to be attached to the boxing of the cushion or mattress. ' The finishing end plate eyelets are formed with a countersunk annular recess I 1 Ywhich is adapted to receive the annular flange I8 formed on the Ventilating grommet or eyelet I9 about the Ventilating screen portion 20. The grommet or eyelet I9 is provided with a cylindrical sleeve 2| which extends through the eyelet II and through a hole formed in the end of the flexible leaf spring anchoring plate 22 as illustrated in Figure 3. When the eyelet I9 is in the prop‘e'r' position to secure the handle lli to the' boxing wall, the inner edges of the sleeve 2'I are peaned 15 over at` 23 against the load bearing plate ends 24 of the reinforcing spring 22. The' bodyV of the boxing B is of soft felted material and is com pressed by the anchoring Ventilating eyelet I9 20 to rigidly secure the handle assembly unit to the‘ outer wall of the boxing B. The Web handle I 0 extends in line with the ñexible leaf reinforcing inner spring 22. The boxing B is flexible so that it will flex inwardly 25 with the reinforcing spring 22, while the Web handle I Il` flexes outwardly to admit the hand, thus providing a handle which may be easily engaged by virtue of the inwardly iiexing anchoring spring 22 and boxing wall B and the out wardly flexing web handle IB. The spring rein forcing anchoring member 22 acts to space the ends of the handle I0 apart and the ends of said spring provide load bearing plates 2li so that the Wall B» of the mattress or cushion will not be torn, but will be securely held under the flange I4 and the load bearing end plate portions 24. This is extremely important because considerable strain is applied to a handle of this character when lifting a heavy mattress or cushion. Itv is' of equal importance to provide the web handle IU with reinforcing finishing end plate eyelets II which are separately attached to the web handle to form the handle unit and toV prevent> the tearing out of the webbing around the holes 45: in the ends of the same. The' ventilator grom mets> I9« provide air passageways throughv the walls of the mattress. In accordance with the patent statutes I have described the construction of my handle for mat tresses, cushions and the like, together with the 50 method of making the same, and while the draw-~ ing illustrates one embodiment thereof, the- in vention. should be interpreted within the scope of the following claims: 55 I claim: , l: A handle for a mattress and cushion having a flexible wall including a webbing handle mem ber having openingsI punched near the endsv of the same, finishing plates registering with the ends of said handle member, eyelet means on said plates extending through the openings for securing said finishing plates in overlying rela tion-to the ends of said handle member, a re silient back bar overlying the inner surface of the flexible Wall, and grommets extending through said eyelets and the flexible wall securing said handle member overlying the outer surface of said ilexible Wall to said resilient back bar. 2.
