Abstract:     A hose-mounted faucet-connector having an integral inner and outer housing, the outer housing at one end being connectable to a hose and at the mounting end having the inner housing integrally mounted across the remaining other mounting end sealably thereof except for a mounting aperture centrally within the body of the inner housing that extends concavely within space of the outer housing, the inner walls of the outer housing including spaced-apart ribs extending substantially axially of tubular space from the one end to the integral inner housing at the mounting end of the outer housing; in a preferred embodiment, the faucet mount is mounted on a valve-containing hose that is mounted on an inlet-outlet structure of the pressurizable vessel.

First Claim:
Show all 2 claims
I claim:     1. A hose faucet-connector comprising in combination: an integrally molded unit having an outer housing of wall structure forming a tubular through-space extending from a first open end to a second open end, being substantially wider in outside diameter at said first open end as compared to outside diameter at said second open end and having substantially uniform thickness of the wall structure throughout a length of said outer housing between said first open end and said second open end, and said molded unit having further a concavely shaped inner housing with at-least a faucet-mounting aperture with said inner housing extending across said first end and sealably fused therewith at outer peripheries of said inner housing, the improvement comprising spaced-apart ribs extending, independent of other support, along an inner surface of said outerhousing integral with solely said wall structure, with the ribs extending substantially in an axial direction relative to said tubular through-space ranging up to said outer peripheries of said inner housing, said outer housing and tubular space thereof at said first open end being substantially flared outwardly in shape and said concavely shaped inner housing being inwardly free of support by said spaced-apart ribs, free-space of the tubular space existing between the concavely shaped inner housing and said spaced-apart ribs, and said wall structure at locations between said spaced-apart ribs being sufficiently thin as to be flexible in nature, whereby said spaced-apart ribs render a sturdy structure axially of said tubular through-space when mounting the unit on a faucet and firm against tendencies to baloon or pop-off when elevated water pressure exists during water-flow from a faucet on which the unit is mounted through said faucet-mounting aperture.
