Abstract (en)

A laundry basket with retractable supports comprising a basket containment body (2) which is substantially shaped like a parallelepiped, four legs (4, 5) which are joined in pairs by way of two transverse elements pivoted to the bottom (10a) of the body (2), and two handles (3a, 3b) for actuating the pairs of legs (4, 5). The actuation handles (3a, 3b) can slide vertically along two mutually opposite side walls (14, 15) of the body (2), respective pinion sectors (29a, 29b) being rigidly coupled to the transverse elements, coaxially supported at pivots (28a, 28b) and meshing with racks (33, 34) formed on flexible tabs (30, 31) which are rigidly coupled to the handles (3a, 3b). The tabs (30, 31) can slide parallel to the bottom (10a) of the body, so that the upward or downward actuation of the handles (3a, 3b) causes the lifting or lowering of the legs (4, 5), respectively. <IMAGE>
