(Cl. 5495') Y This invention relates to infants’ beds or cribs and it has particular reference to a crib adapted to be displaceably attached to the foot of a con ventional bedstead. can be affixed to the foot board of the bedstead l without departing from the intent of the inven tion. « The principal object of the invention is to provide for the attachment of a baby bed or crib to a conventional bedstead in such manner that it will be most convenient for the occupant of the bed to attend the infant and the latter’s crib is so rdisposed in relation to the larger bed that it 10 will interfere in no way with the comfort of the occupants thereof. Another object of the invention is to provide an infant’s crib, attached as described to a con ventional bed, with the further provision that it is capable of being shifted from a position over the foot portion of the bed to a position beyond . The crib I2 per se is not unlike the conven tional crib and is adapted to `be supported a suf iìcient height above thefoot ofthe bed, when in operative position so that it will not interfere with free and unrestricted normal movement of the feet and legs of the occupants of the bed I0, yet will be accessible to one occupying the bed( should the baby require attention during the night. Mounted on the confronting sides of each of f the foot posts II is a plate I3 having a collar or ferrule I4 aiiixed to its center. A rod I5 ex tends from one to the other of these collars and has its ends journaled therein. This rod serves to support the crib I2 at one side and, to facili tate movement of the crib from operative to the Still another object of the invention is to pro 20 inoperative position shown in dotted lines Yin Fig vide for further adjustment in the inoperative ures 1 and 2, a roller I6 is mounted on the rod position of the crib attachment in that it may, I5 near each end. v Y if desired, be displaced to a position parallellwith To constrain the crib I2 against other than the foot board of the bed to which it is attached, by detaching the means by which it is supported 25 lateral movement, a strap I1 is añixed to its un derside near each end and so spaced'from' the in the other positions and when so inoperatively underside of the crib that they will embrace the disposed, the crib may be used to store the bed , rollers I6K carried by the rod I5. It is apparent clothing for the crib or other articles and suitably that the straps will prevent movement of the crib concealed. away from the rod under pressure imposed on the With the foregoing objects as paramount, the 30 opposite side of the crib. ' invention has particular reference to certain fea In support of the weight of the crib and its tures of accomplishment, to become manifest as contents is a. pair of link I8. One end of each the description proceeds, taken in connection with link is provided with an aperture I9 (Fig. 4) to the accompanying drawing, wherein: provide for its convenient attachment to the Figure 1 is a perspective view of a conventional 35 lower portion of the crib at one end intermediate bed, showing the crib attached thereto in a man the sides thereof.

Continuing with a more detailed description of the drawing, reference is primarily made to Fig ure 1 wherein I0 denotes a conventional bedstead and bed of the type having posts I I at both head „ and foot. The posts at the foot of the bed pro vide the supporting means for the crib I2 in the present case but it is obviously possible in cases Where the design of the bed does >not include posts, supporting risers to take the place of posts posed recesses c. ' The recesses c in the slot a are adapted to alternately receive a, pin 22, mounted on a plate 45 23, in turn mounted on confronting sides of posts f Il below the rod mountings I3, when the crib I2 is in operative and inoperative positions. In other words, when the crib is positioned as shown in solid lines in Figures 1 and 2, the links I8 are so positioned that theywill support the crib by having one recess c in engagement with the pin 22. However, when it is desired to shift the crib to the position shown in dotted lines in thesev figures, the upper ends of the links are detached 55 from the crib, the latter is moved to the new ' 2,406,447 `position and " "Í »ff solid line position during night periods, while the links are again attached as be the second dotted position shows the crib as be ing displaced to permit the covers of the bed lll fore but the lower ends thereof are shifted'so that'the opposite recess c will engage the pin. .Thus the crib is supported in this new position to be rearranged. y just as securely as inthe first position. - _Should'it be desired to move the cribv l2 to still another position in the interest of conserving modiñcation as may be construed to fall within the scope and meaning-of the appended claim is space, thelinks I8 may either be removed en tirely or released 4from the cribs ~~at,the’ir' upper ends and allowed to 'assume a position parallel with the posts I I and lowerthe crib to alposition >also considered 4vto' be'wì'thin the ¿spiritY andïintent 10 of the invention.
