Specification of Letters Patent.
W p FOLDING UMBRELLA.
Patented July 2,1912.
Application filed June 6, 1911. Serial No. 631,610.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, JAMES PETERSON, a citizen of the United States, residing at Price, in the county of Carbon and State of Utah, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Folding Umbrellas, of which the following is a specification.
The purpose of my invention is to provide an umbrella that may be used as an ordinary umbrella and by a slight manipulation of some of the parts may be folded into compact form for placing in a grip, suit case or other receptacle, and one that is suitably and strongly braced. These objects I accomplish with the device illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which similar letters of reference indicate like parts throughout the several figures.
Figure l is a vertical section of the umbrella when extended and cover removed, parts cut away. Fig. 2 is an elevation of the umbrella folded with the cover removed and parts cut away. Fig. 3 is an elevation of a portion of the staff. Fig. 4 is an elevation of the link tube. Fig. 5 is a plan of the upper runner. Fig. 6 is a side elevation of same. F ig. 7 is a plan of the lower runner. Fig. 8 is a side elevation of the same. Fig. 9 is a plan view of the upper end of a portion of the stafi. Fig. 10 is a side elevation of the same. Fig. 11 a side elevation of the upper portion of the staff with one of the spring catches shown extended and as flexed in dotted lines. Fig. 12 is a plan view of the cam sleeve and a section of the lower runner.
In the drawings the upper portion of the staff is rod 1, and this part of the staff fits closely and telescopes within the other portion, a tube 2, of the staff. The rod 1 has a spring catch 3 secured near the middle thereof and carries a notched and channeled bearing 15 thereon near the upper end. Said rod 1 also has another spring catch 4 thereon and a catch opening 5 thereinto. The said tube 2 has the segment of an extended flange 6 on its upper end and a longitudinal slot 7 cut thereinto. The upper end of said slot 7 has a section 8 thereof formed wider, and opening into the said widened part 8 is cut a short slot 9 parallel with the said slot 7. Near its lower end the said slot 7 is also cut Wider forming a set off 10 in the other side of said slot 7. The said slots 7, 8, '9 and 10 are cut to receive the said spring catch 3, when and as desired in the manipulation of the umbrella. Slidably carried on the said tube 2 is the upper runner 11, which has a portion thereof longitudinally extended and bent radially inward forming a lug 12. The said lug 12 is made to engage the said segment flange 6, when they are adjacent, to lock the said runner 11 and said tube 2 together from independent longitudinal movements. To the said upper runner 11 is pivoted the inner ends of a plurality of stretchers 13, which set of stretchers have their outer ends pivoted to the ribs at the joint 14 therein. Said ribs are severed and hingedly connected at said joint 14. The inner sections 16 of said ribs are pivoted to said notched bearing 15. Also carried on said tube 2 is the lower runner 17, which has secured thereon a catch 18. This catch 18 is made to engage in the catch opening 5 Within the rod 1, to lock the lower runner 17 and the said rod 1 together which is done to fold the umbrella, but does not so engage when the umbrella is collapsed or used an ordinary umbrella. Said catch 18 has a longitudinal notch 25 cut in its lower end. To the said lower runner 17 is pivoted the inner ends of another set of stretchers 19, which have their upper ends pivoted to the outer sections 20 of said ribs. On the upper portion of said runner 17 is formed a longitudinally extended lug 21 made to en gage in a notch 22 in the lower end of the upper runner. The purpose being to lock the two runners together when they are adjacent to prevent any tendency of independent axial movement. The said runner 1.7 carries thereon a cam sleeve 23, which sleeve has secured therein a cam 241 made to operate within the said notch 25 in the lower end of the said catch 18. Also within. the peripheric face of said sleeve 23 are cut two openings 37. Secured on said lower runner 17 and Within the said sleeve 23 is the spring catch 26, the point of which is made to operate within the said openings 37 in the peripheric face of said sleeve 23, to prevent unintentional movement of said sleeve. lVithin the lower end of the said tube 2 is securely fitted an axial lug 27 having thereon a radially extended lug 29, to the lug 27 is fastened one link of a chain 28. Said chain is preferably made up of three or four links, and is attached to one end of the link tube 32. Said link tube has a diametrical longitudinally disposed opening 31 therein, within which opening is operated a guide pin 32 the ends of which seat and are secured in the tube 2, hereinafter more fully described. Also within and to said link tube 32 is fastened the spring catch 33, which engages in slots cut in the surrounding tube 2. To the lower end of said link tube is fastened one end of a spiral spring 34, the other end of which is secured to the lower end of said tube 2'. Slidably telescoping over the said link tube 32 is the lower portion of the staff of the umbrella formed as a tube 2 hereinbefore mentioned and having an open longitudinal cut 30 in its upper end. Said cut is made to engage the said lug 29 to prevent axial. turning when so engaging. Said tube 2 has two longitudinally alined spring catch openings 35 and 35 in its side, within which the said spring catch 33 engages and the operation of the pin 32 in the opening 32 insures the catch 33 to be in the same radial plane as the openings 35 and 35. Fitted on the lower end of said tube 2 is the hand hold 36.
lVhen assembled as shown in Fig. 1, the rod 1 and the tube 2 are locked together by the catch 3 engaging in the opening 8 in said tube 2, the tubes 2 and 2 are locked together by the spring catch 33 engaging in the opening 35, while at the same time the lug 27 is telescoped within the upper end of said tube 2. When in this position the pressing in of the spring catch 1 will allow the umbrella to collapse or close as any or dinary umbrella. By sliding the lower run ner upward on the said tube 2 until the said runner passes over the said catch 4 the umbrella is extended as shown in Fig. 1. To fold the umbrella, the cam sleeve 23 is firmly held, preferably with the left hand, and with the other hand grasping the hand hold 36 the umbrella is given a slight axial turn. hen the umbrella is extended the upper runner 11 presses the spring catch 3 from its engagement in the slot 9, and this axial turning will allow the tube 2 to turn axially far enough to engage the said catch 3 in the slot 7 and in this position the segment flange 6 is thrown into engagement with the lug 12. A continuation of said axial turn of all of the umbrella except the said cam sleeve, will move the catch 18 on the cam 24, and this in turn will cause the engagement of the said catch 18 in the opening 5 of the said rod 1 through the opening 39 in the runner 17 and lock the said runner to the rod 1. By then sliding the said lower runner 17 longitudinally downward on the tube 2 the umbrella is folded except the lower portion of the staff. Then by depressing the spring catch 33 and pulling longitudinally on the hand held 36 the said catch 33 is withdrawn from its engagement in the opening 35 and made to engage in the opening 35.. When the longitudinal pull on the hand hold has drawn the spring catch 33 into the opening 35 and the said pull released the tension of the chain is released and the tube 2 portion of the staff may be doubled back parallel with the tube 2.
Having thus described my invention, I desire to secure by Letters Patent and claim 1.
