IMPROVED DOMESTIC WHEELIE BIN STAND






The following statement is a full description of this invention, including the best method of performing it known to me:


1.


IMPROVED DOMESTIC WHEELIE BIN STAND


Suitable for Garbage, Recycle or Organic Green Waste:

The inherent problem of wheelie bins spilling their contents, has led to the recent introduction of the Wheelie Mate wheelie bin stabilising stand. This invention has been devised to provide an improved stabilising wheelie bin stand.
The new improved wheelie bin stand will stabilise the bin and stop the bin lids from fully opening. This will eliminate bins from tipping over and spilling the contents, thus preventing health, safety and environmental problems.
The stand is light weight, portable and easily installed. The stand is placed out on the roadside on collection day it is then removed on retrieval of the bin after it is emptied.

The improved wheelie bin stand in accordance with this invention comprises of a stand with the following:

New flexible section
Improved hook section
New locking device
New optional, stand carrying and storage holder

Flexible Section:

This firm flexible section near the mid section of the stand; greatly assists the loading and unloading of the wheelie bin to the stand hook by the householder. The hook section may be sprung down to the bin handle to be inserted, with handle inserted, the stand may be pulled back to the upright position, thus retaining the bin in the correct secure position.
The flexible section of the stand also prevents damage to the stand by the collection vehicle.

The Hook Section:

The hook section is of such dimensions and located in such a position on the top section of the stand so as to allow easy removal and replacement by the collection vehicle.

Locking Device:

The stand has a locking device at the base of the stand which locks the stand to the sleeve that is permanently fixed into the ground at the collection site. The stand has an added tongue welded to the bin size adjustment collar, this tongue has a hole through it. The sleeve has a hinged metal flap at the top, this flap has a slot cut to the centre adjacent to the hinged end. This slot is of a size to allow the tongue on the stand to protrude through when the stand is inserted into the sleeve in the ground. A padlock may be place into the hole in the tongue, thus locking the stand to the sleeve.

2.


The hinged metal flap, when the stand is removed from the sleeve, returns to a horizontal position, thus covering the top of the sleeve. To assist the metal flap to
return to the horizontal position, a fixed rubber block at the heel of the hinged end of the flap, stops the flap from remaining in the vertical position.

Stand Carrying and Storage Holder (optional):

The carrying and storage holder is designed to fit to the wheelie bin, for transport and storage of the wheelie bin stand. The holder is a sleeve into which this stand is inserted. The sleeve is attached to the front lower section of the wheelie bin by an adjustable bracket which slides onto the sleeve. This bracket is retained by two bullet head bolts and nuts; the base of the holder is retained by one bullet head bolt and nut.


The improved stand is constructed of galvanized steel. Aluminium or stainless steel may also be used, the flexible section is of a galvanized steel compression spring, other products may be used such as urethane or rubber.

The invention may be better understood with reference to the illustrations of embodiments of the invention which:-

Figure 1. is an elevation of an improved wheelie bin stand with parts separated and the co-acting positions.
