UNIT S GEORGE C. LOCKLIN, OF HAMlWOND, INDIANA.
CANOPY.
Application filed February 24, 1912.
T0 all whom t may concern.'
Be it known that I, GEORGE C. LocnLiN, a citizen of the United States, residing at I-Iammond, in the county of Lake and State of Indiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Canopies, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to canopies and has for its object to provide a new and improved canopy for the stand shown herein, or one of the same general character, which may be readily attached to and detached from the stand as occasion requires, and which shall be light, strong and sightly in appearance and shall consist of a few simple parts that can be cheaply and easily manufactured.
A further object of the invention is to provide for a stand such as that shown, a canopy comprising a canvas, duck or other fabric covering and transverse supports for the same, which supports may be adjustably but very firmly secured to the stand so as to keep the covering tautly stretched over the stand in order that it may shed water and not be blown away, the capacity of the supports for adjustment making it possible to keep the covering taut even after it stretches with wear, or, on the other hand, making it possible to continue t-he use of the cover should it shrink after being` wet.
The invention is illustrated, in a preferred embodiment, in the accompanying drawings, wherein- Figure 1 is a side elevation of a stand furnished with the canopy of my invention; Fig. 2 an end elevation; Fig. 3 a fragmentary sectional elevation, being taken on line 3 3 of Fig. 4, looking in the direction of the arrows; Fig. 4 a longitudinal sectional view on line 4 4 of Fig. 3, looking in the direction of the arrows; Fig. 5 a fragmentary sectional plan taken on line 5 5 of Fig. 4, and Fig. 6 a View, in perspective, of the yoke member.
Like characters of reference indicate like parts in the several figures of the drawings.
Referring to the drawings, the stand consists of two pairs of upright members 10, 10 and a longitudinal or ridge pole member 11. The uprights of each pair run parallel to each other and close together at the top and spread at the bottom to form legs 12 which are connected together by the cross pieces 13. The ends of the longitudinal member 11 are curved around as shown at 14 so that each Specification of Letters Patent.

end may be secured between its pair of uprights at two places by means of the bolts 15. If the stand is to be used as a hammock, stand hooks 16 may be secured to the longitudinal member 11. I make no claim to the stand taken by itself. The purpose of my invention is to provide a suitable canopy for the stand shown and described or one which is constructed in the same general way.
The canopy consists of the fabric cover 17 and the supports 18. The latter are preferably of metal and angular in cross section. Each of these supports is secured to one of the pairs of uprights by means of a yoke 19 and a suitable bolt or clamping device. The yoke is formed with the notches 2O into which the upright flange 21 of the angle iron support fits. For drawing the yoke and the support together around the uprights 10 I have shown a bolt 22 extending through perforations in the flange 21 and the yoke 19 and provided with the wing nut 23.
The upper or horizontal flanges of the supports 18 are preferably made longer than the iianges 21 and the projecting ends 24 are bent over and provided with the studs 25. The canopy has the eyelets 26 for attachment to the studs. By these arrangements the canopy can be readily attached to and detached from the stand as occasion may require. By taking advantage of the fact that the uprights at each end of the stand are parallel to each other and spaced at no great distance apart, my invention provides a very simple and cheaply made device for clamping each of the cross supports of the canopy cover firmly and securely to the stand, but so as to permit ready detachment when it is desired to remove the canopy fro-m the stand. The yoke 19 preferably has a certain amount of spring so that the clamp it provides is very firm. The supports can be adjusted vertically as required. The cover 17 c-.Xtends over the ridge pole 11 of the stand, sloping therefrom on either side. In order that it should shed water and in order that it may not be detached from the supports by the wind, it should be kept taut over the ridge pole. The adjustability of the clamping devices for the supports provides for this. Thus, if the covering stretches with use, the supports may be moved downward slightly to take up the slack. On the other hand, they may be adjusted the other way in case t-he wetting of the cover causes it to shrink. By having the cover taut, the simple stud and eyelet connection between the cover and the supports is sufficient to keep the cover from being blown away. This sort of connection permits the cover to be readily removed When desirable, Without taking o the supports.
I claim;
l. A canopy for a stand having a pair of uprights at each end which canopy comprises a cover, supports for the ends of the same, a yoke for each support adapted to extend around the pair of uprights at one end of the stand and to engage With such support, and means for clamping said supports and yokes to their' respective pairs of uprights.
2. A canopy for a stand having a pair of uprights at each end Which canopy comprises a cover, angle iron supports for the same, a yoke for each support adapted to extend around the pair of uprights at one end of' the stand and formed with notches into which the flange of the support fits, and means for clamping said supports and yokes to their respective pairs of uprights.
3. A canopy for a stand having a pair of uprights at each end Which canopy comprises a cover, angle iron supports, the hori- Zontally extending iianges of Which project beyond the vertical flanges at each end and are bent down upon the vertical flanges, studs on said flanges, eyelets secured to the cover, a yoke for each support adapted to extend around the pair of uprights at one end of the stand and formed With notches into Which the vertically extending flange of the support fits, and bolts extending through the supports and the corresponding yokes provided with Wing nuts for the purpose specified.
4L. A canopy for a stand having a pair of uprights at each end and a ridge pole secured to and connecting said pairs of uprights, which canopy comprises transverse supports, a cover extending over the ridge poles and connected to opposite ends of said supports, and means for adjustably securing the supports to their respective pairs of uprights, for the purpose described.
