Figure 1 is a perspective view of the present invention. Shown is an exterior view having a humidity-controlled enclosure used to preserve shoes.
Figure 2 is a front view of the present invention. The shoe preserver has a housing with a transparent hinged access panel for inserting and removing shoes therefrom. An exterior control panel provides for controlling the rotating shelves and the humidifier.
Figure 3 is a top view of the present invention. This drawing depicts the location of the lighting unit shown in outline. When the access door is opened the light will illuminate.
Figure 4 is a left exterior view of the present invention. This view shows the location of the louvered vents for the humidifier and an electrical connection for power.
Figure 5 is a perspective view of the interior mechanism of the present invention. Shown is a plurality of display platforms connected to spaced away belts having rotative elements connected by gears to a motor whereby the display platforms can be selectively positioned adjacent a hingedly connected transparent access hatch.
Figure 6 is a side view of the present invention. Shown is a motor having a worm gear engaging a sprocket gear that turns a first shaft, which then turns a pair of pulleys with transmission belts extending to another pair of pulleys. The belts have a plurality of shelves attached thereto whereby one or more pairs of shoes can be selectively positioned thereon. Also shown is the humidifier used to control humidity within the apparatus.
Figure 7 is an enlarged view of the gear assembly of the present invention.
Figure 8 is an enlarged view of the control panel having controls for the motor, light assembly and humidifier.
Figure 9 is an enlarged drawing of a shoe display platform of the present invention. The elevated heel stop and the suspension members are permanently affixed to the platform and are supported by a rod that is freely rotatable by use of bearings.
Figure 10 is a partial view of the shoe display platform with an enlarged view of the suspension member bearings. The bearings allow free rotation of the suspension members and allows the shelf to keep an approximately forty-five degree angle while rotating.
