Primary Examiner:

Claims:
What is claimed is:

1. A plastic water bottle carrier device that provides a cord which hangs on a person's shoulder or around the person's neck. At the end of the cord is a double loop which when secured by a cord lock holds the bottle tightly. The double loop is attached under the plastic rim directly under the bottle cap.

Description:
The proposed invention relates to an over the shoulder plastic water bottle carrier. The components of the bottle carrier are as follows:

1. A cord lock with two holes.

2. Nylon cord used for strength.

3. Knot in end of nylon cord.

The nylon cord loops thru the cord lock in such a manner as to provide two loops to hold the bottle. This required two loop process locks the nylon cord securely around the bottle when the cord lock is cinched up snuggly against the bottle neck under the plastic rim. The two ends of the nylon cord are then tied together in a simple knot to complete the assembly of the bottle carrier. The individual then inserts a bottle of water through the loops and cinches the cord lock snuggly to the bottle neck under the plastic rim. The next step is to hang the cord as desired on shoulder or around neck to carry the bottle with your hands free.

The invention will work with any plastic bottle juice, soda, water, etc. that has a plastic rim underneath the bottle cap. It will also work with various sizes from small up to 2 liters. The basic assembly process does not change, however, different weights of nylon cord and different sizes of cord locks may be used to achieve the same result.
