DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE EMBODIMENTS



[0015] The present disclosure provides a crib. As shown in FIG. 1, the crib includes a left support mechanism 1, a right support mechanism 2, and a sleeping basket frame 3 provided between the left support mechanism 1 and the right support mechanism 2. The sleeping basket frame 3 is height-adjustable. A detachable support frame 4 and a detachable storage frame 5 are further provided between the left support mechanism 1 and the right support mechanism 2. The support frame 4 is located below the sleeping basket frame 3, and the storage frame 5 is located below the support frame 4.

[0016] Referring to FIGS. 1 and 2, each of the left support mechanism 1 and the right support mechanism 2 includes a support base 6, an inner sleeve 7, an outer sleeve 8, and a connecting housing 9. A bottom portion of the inner sleeve 7 is connected to a top portion of the support base 6, and an upper portion of the inner sleeve 7 is nested inside a lower portion of the outer sleeve 8. The connecting housing 9 is provided on a top portion of the outer sleeve 8. The sleeping basket frame 3 is provided between the connecting housing 9 of the left support mechanism 1 and the connecting housing 9 of the right support mechanism 2.

[0017] Referring to FIGS. 1 to 5, a top portion of the inner sleeve 7 is provided with a height adjustment box 10. A height adjustment piece 11 and a clamping rod 12 are provided in the height adjustment box 10. The height adjustment piece 11 is configured to drive the clamping rod 12 to move left and right. The connecting housing 9 is provided with a pulling assembly 13. A pulling rope 14 is provided between the pulling assembly 13 and the height adjustment piece 11. A side of the outer sleeve is provided with a plurality of clamping openings 81 arranged vertically. One end of the clamping rod 12 passes through a side of the height adjustment box 10 and is clamped into the clamping opening 81. The pulling assembly 13 is a prior structure, which will not be repeated herein. The pulling assembly 13 drives the height adjustment piece 11 to rise and fall through the pulling rope 14. The connection relationship between the height adjustment piece 11 and the clamping rod 12 is in the prior art. When the height adjustment piece 11 rises, the clamping rod 12 is moved and separated from the clamping opening 81. At this time, the outer sleeve 8 and the sleeping basket frame 3 can be raised and lowered. When the outer sleeve 8 and the sleeping basket frame 3 are adjusted to a desired height, the height adjustment piece 11 is lowered, and the clamping rod 12 is clamped into a new clamping opening 81. An outer side of the lower portion of the outer sleeve 8 is provided with a height observation window 82. An outer side of the inner sleeve 7 is provided with a plurality of height marks spaced vertically (not shown in the figure). The height mark (not shown in the figure) corresponds to the height observation window 82, and the height observation window 82 is configured to display a position of the height mark on the outer sleeve 8.

[0018] Referring to FIGS. 1 and 4, a bottom portion of the outer sleeve 8 is provided with a first connecting portion 15. The first connecting portion 15 is located on a side of the outer sleeve 8. The first connecting portion 15 is provided with an inserting hole 16. An inserting piece 17 adapted to the inserting hole 16 is provided in the inserting hole 16. A top portion of the inserting piece 17 protrudes out of a top portion of the inserting hole 16 and is connected to the support frame 4. Since the support frame 4 is connected to the inserting piece 17, the support frame 4 is connected to the outer sleeve 8 by directly inserting the inserting piece 17 into the inserting hole 16. To remove the support frame 4, the inserting piece 17 is directly lifted and taken out of the inserting hole 16.

[0019] Referring to FIGS. 1, 3 and 4, an inner side of the support base 6 is provided with a second connecting portion 18. A side of the second connecting portion 18 is provided with an inserting portion 19. A third connecting portion 20 is provided on the side of the second connecting portion 18. A side of the third connecting portion 20 adjacent to the second connecting portion 18 is provided with an inserting slot 21 with an open bottom. The inserting portion 19 is adapted to the inserting slot 21 and is inserted into the inserting slot 21. The third connecting portion 20 is connected to the storage frame 5. To connect the storage frame 5 to the support base 6, the inserting portion 19 is inserted into the inserting slot 21. To remove the storage frame 5, the storage frame 5 is directly lifted up, such that the inserting portion 19 is separated from the inserting slot 21. The storage frame 5 is configured to support a storage basket for storing baby items, such as diapers and clothes.

[0020] Referring to FIGS. 1 to 4, the support base 6 includes a front bending rod 61 and a rear bending rod 62 that are symmetrical to each other. A front end of the front bending rod 61 is provided with a front connecting base 63, and a rear end of the rear bending rod 62 is provided with a telescopic tube 64. A rear end of the telescopic tube 64 is provided with a rear connecting base 65. Each of a bottom portion of the front connecting base 63 and a bottom portion of the rear connecting base 65 is provided with a caster 66. A top portion of the front bending rod 61 and a top portion of the rear bending rod 62 are connected to a coupling portion 67. The bottom portion of the inner sleeve 7 is connected to the coupling portion 67. A front end of the telescopic tube 64 extends into the rear end of the rear bending rod 62, and a top surface of the telescopic tube 64 is provided with a clamping hole 68. A V-shaped elastic piece 69 is provided in the telescopic tube 64, and the V-shaped elastic piece 69 is provided with a clamping head 691. The clamping head 691 protrudes out of the clamping hole 68 and is located at a rear side of the rear end of the rear bending rod 62. A spring 60 abutting against the telescopic tube 64 is provided in the rear bending rod 62.

[0021] Referring to FIGS. 1 to 4, when it is necessary to place the crib adjacent to an adult bed to take care of the baby, the clamping head 691 of the V-shaped elastic piece 69 is pressed such that the clamping head 691 does not abut against the rear side of the rear end of the rear bending rod 62. At this time, the telescopic tube 64 can be retracted. Then, the crib is tied to the adult bed tightly with a strap. To untie the crib from the adult bed, the strap is loosened. Under the action of the spring 60, the telescopic tube 64 automatically returns to an original position, and the clamping head 691 of the V-shaped elastic piece 69 is re-clamped into the clamping hole 68.

[0022] Referring to FIG. 1, the sleeping basket frame 3 includes a U-shaped tube 31, a left connecting tube 32, a right connecting tube 33, and a detachable tube 34. Two ends of the U-shaped tube 31 are respectively connected to the left connecting tube 32 and the right connecting tube 33 through the connecting housing 9 of the left support mechanism 1 and the connecting housing 9 of the right support mechanism 2. The detachable tube 34 is detachably provided between the left connecting tube 32 and the right connecting tube 33. The disassembly method of the detachable tube 34 is disclosed in the prior art, and will not be repeated herein. The detachable tube 34 can be removed so the parent can pick up the baby from the crib easily and attach the crib to a bed that the parent is sleeping in so the parent can co-sleep with the baby and has easy access to the baby.

[0023] The above described are merely specific implementations of the present disclosure, but the design concept of the present disclosure is not limited thereto. Any non-substantial changes made to the present disclosure based on the concept of the present disclosure should fall within the protection scope of the present disclosure.
