BENJAMIN B. STONE, OF MARMADUKE, ARKANSAS.

CANOPY FOR HAMMOCKS.

Application filed September 25, 1912.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, BENJAMIN B. S'roxn, citizen of the United States, residing at h/Iarmaduke, in the county of (,irreene and State of Arkansas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Canopies for Hammocks, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to canopies and supports for hammocks and has as its object to provide a combined support and canopy so arranged that the canopy will effectually protect the occupant of the hammock from dew, rain and sun without, however, interfering in any way with the free circulation of air about the hammock.

It is one aim of the invention to provide a device such as mentioned above which may be readily knocked down, and set up, and which may consequently, be conveniently carried from place to place.

A further aim of the invention is to pro vide a combined hammock support and canopy which will, when set up for use, be. substantial and not liable to be blown over in a wind.

For a full understanding of the invention reference is to be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, in which Figure l is'a perspective view of the device embodying the present invention. Fig. 2 is a vertical longitudinal sectional view through one end of the device. Fig. 3 is a vertical transverse sectional view.

Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the following description and indicated in all the views of the accompanying drawing by the same reference characters.

In the drawings, the device embodying the present invention is illustrated as including a base-frame, the SlClG-IDQIIlbQI'S of which are indicated by the numeral 1 and the end-members by the numeral 2. Each of the end-members 2 of the frame is formed adjacent each end and in its upper face with a mortise 3 and the side-members 1 of the frame are formed at their ends with tenons 4: which are removably fitted in the mortises 3. Each end-member 2 is formed at a point midway between its ends with a mortise 5 which is preferably rectangular and these mortises receive tenons 6 at the lower ends of the standards 7 which are of a sufficient height to support the can- Specification of Letters Patent.

opy at the proper elevation above the hammock, as will be presently explained. At their upper ends the standards 7 are'formed each with a stud S removably fitted in an opening 9 at the corresponding end of a ridge-pole 10. The canopy is indicated in general by the numeral 11 and is preferably of canvas or other heavy cloth, and it consists of a body-piece which is preferably rectangular, and end-pieces 12 which are triangular and are secured at their lateral edges to the end-edges of the body-piece. The hody piece 11 is stretched over the ridge-pole 10 in the manner clearly shown in the several figures of the drawings, and near each end is formed with an opening 13 receiving the studs 8. In order that thc canopy may be held properly stretched. stretcher bars 1-1 are provided and each of these bars has its ends reduced as at 15 and removably fitted in openings 16 in tabs 17 which are secured to the under side of the body-piece of the canopy near each lower corner thereof. It will be apparent from the foregoing and from inspection of Fig. 2 of the drawing that one of the stretcher bars is located at each end of the canopy and inwardly of the corresymnding standard 7 and that the said bars extend transverselv of the standards. i

A hook 18 is provided at each end of each of the end-members 2 of the base-frame and a girv-rope 15) is stretched between arch of the hooks and the adjacent corner of the canopy in a manner which will now be explained.

Each of the ropes at one end is formed with a loop 20 engaged over the adjacent reduced end of the respective stretcher bar 14, inwardly of the tab 17. The other-end of each guy-rope is knotted as at 21. and is inserted through an opening 22 in a slide, of the ordinary type. the intermediate portion of the guy-rope being inserted through an opening 23 in the other end of the said slide.

The hammock is supported by the uprights located at the ends of the base-frame and each of these uprights consists essentially of a pair of legs 24 which have their lower ends beveled as at 25 and fitted in notches 26 formed in the upper sides of the members 1 of the said base-frame. The upper ends of the legs 2 1 are formed with openings 27 through which is fitted the shank 28 of a combined anchoring and suspension member, the said shank passing also through a washer 29 disposed between the said upper ends of the legs. The shank is threaded as at 30 and 31 and upon its portion 30 is fitted a nut 32 bearing against a washer 33 disposed against the upper end of one of the legs. A nut 3% is threaded upon the portion 31 of the shank 38 and bears against a washer 35 disposed against the upper end of the. other one of the legs 24. From the foregoing it will be seen that the shank 28 serves as a pivot for the legs and that the legs may be swung apart on this pivot so as to assume about the position in Figs. 1 and 3 of the drawing, or may be swung together when it is desired to pack the device for transportation. The shank 28 at that end at which the nut 32 is located is bent upwardly to form a hook 36 and the other end of the shank is bent to extend downwardly as at 37 and at its extremity is bent to form a hook 38. The hammock is indicated by the numeral 39 and is suspended for swinging movement by suspension chains 40, the links of which are adjustably engageable with the hooks 36.

In order to support the legs 24: of the uprights, anchoring rods 41 are provided and each of these rods has an eye 4:2 at its upper end engaged with one of the hooks 38, the lower end of the rod being formed with a hook l3 detachably engaged with an eye 44 secured to the respective end-member 2 of the base-frame.

From the foregoing decription of the invention it will be seen that there is provided a device of the class mentioned which is simple in construction and substantial and which may be moved at a low cost and readily set-up or knocked down and carried from place to place. It will also be apparent that the device is particularly well adapted for use by persons wishing to sleep in the op en in warm weather, inasmuch as the hammock 39 is protected, although air may circulatc freely beneath the canopy 11.

Having thus described the inventionwhat is claimed as new is 1. In a device of the class described, a base-frame including side and end-members, uprights comprising each pivoted legs disposed at their lower ends upon the side members of the frame, the pivot for the legs of each of the uprights being provided with a suspension hook, and an anchoring member connected with each of the pivots and secured to the respective end-member of the frame.

2. In a device of the class described, a base-frame including side members and end members, spaced uprights each including a pair of legs, a pivot for the legs of each upright comprising a shank fitted through the upper ends of the said legs and formed at each end with a hook, and an anchoring member connected with one of the hooks of each shank and connected to the corresponding end-member of the base-frame.

3. In a device of the class described, a base-frame including side-members and endmembers, uprights each including a pair of logs disposed at their lower ends upon the side-members of the frame, and a combined anchoring and suspension member including a shank pivotally fitted through the upper ends of the legs of each upright and provided at each end with a hook, the adjacent hooks of said members of the uprights being arranged for the suspension of the hammock or the like between the uprights, an eye-member upon each end-member of the frame, and an anchoring rod pivotally connected with the other hook of each of the said combined anchoring and suspension members and having at its lower end a hook detachably engageable with the corresponding eye-member.

In testimony whereof I affix my signa ture in presence of two witnesses.
