Specification. of Letters Patent.

Patented Aug. 2%, 1915.

Application filed July 3, 1914. Serial No. 348,859.

To all whom it may concern i Be it known that I, GEORGE P. STEINBACH, a citizen of the United States, residing at Baltimore, in the State of Maryland, have invented new and useful Improvements in Childrens Sulkies, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to childrens carriages or sulkies, and it has for its 'object to produce a device of this class which will be simple in construction and conveniently operable.

A further object of the invention is to produce a device of this class having a swinging resiliently supported seat which may be conveniently changed or adjusted so as to face the front or rear, as may be desired.

A further object of the invention is to improve the construction of the seat so that the back portion and the foot rest portionv thereof may be conveniently and simultaneously tilted or adjusted.

lVith these and other ends in view which will readily appear as the nature of the invention is better understood, the same con sists in the improved construction and novel arrangement and combination of parts which will be hereinafter fully described and particularly pointed out in the claims.

In the accompanying drawings has been illustrated a simple and preferred form of theinvention, it being, however, understood that no limitation is necessarily made to the precise structural details therein exhibited, but that changes, alterations and modifications within the scope of the claims may be resorted to when desired.

In the drawings,-Figure l is a view in side elevation of a sulky constructed in accordance with the invention. Fig. 2 is a top plan View of the same. Fig. 3 1s a longitudinal vertical sectional view taken on the line 33 in Fig. 2, the seat being arranged to face in the opposite direction to Fig. 1, and also showing the back and the foot rest tilted to a different position. Fig. 4 is a vertical transverse sectional view taken on the line H in Fig. 3.

Corresponding parts in the several figures are denoted by like characters of reference. The axle 15 which is preferably arched, as

shown, is provided at the lower ends of itsv respective limbs 16 with spindles 17 on which the ground wheels 18 are supported for rotation. A

The axle is provided adjacent to the ends thereof with upwardly extending tubular sockets 19.

Brackets 20 are provided, the same being secured by means of clips 21 to the limbs 16 of the axle from which they extend forwardly and rearwardly, as shown, said brackets being provided with terminal loops 22 that afford guards for the auxiliary wheels 23. which are mounted for rotation on supporting members, such as bolts or rivets 24, that connect the ends of the loops 22 with the bodies of the brackets. Braces 25 are also provided that connect the respective supporting members 24: with clips 26 engaging the tubular sockets 19.- The auxiliary wheels will thus be supported in front as well as in rear of the round wheels so as to prevent excessive tilting of the vehicle frame either forwardly or rearwardly.

Cross bars or braces 27 are provided to support a handle or push rod 28, whereby the vehicle may be drawn or pushed, as may be preferred.

The seat 29 is provided at the sides thereof with upwardly extending yokes 30 and with braces 31 serving to support the arms or side members 32.

A back 33 is hingedly connected with the rear edge of the seat, and a foot rest 34: is hingedly connected with the front edge thereof. Extending rearwardly from the seat, below the hinged back member 33, is a bracket 35 with which is pivotally connected a lever L having an upwardly exconnects the downwardly extending lever arm 39 with the connecting rod i0, with the fulcrum member 44: of the lever L. It will be seen that by this simple construction and arrangement of parts the back member will be connected with the foot rest member in such fashion that motion" will be illitllSlllltted therebetween, said members, when adjusted, being moved simultaneously to an approximately horizontal or an approximately vertical position, as the case may be. When such adjustment is effected, the upwardly extending arm 36 of the lever L will slide through the keeper 87, and by tightening the set screw 38 upon the lever arm, the parts will be retained securely in adjusted position. I

Flexible guard members {i5 are used to connect the back member with the arm supporting yokes; a strap 46 is suitably connected with the forward brace members 31 to protect the occupant of the seat.

Pivotally supported adjacent to the under side, of the arms 32 are supporting members 47, which slidably engage the tubular sockets extending resilient too far.

19 in the lower ends of which springs 48 are placed to support the weight of the seat in the supporting members. It is obvious that the-seat may be arranged to face forwardlyor rearwardly, as may be desired, and that it may be readily shifted from one position to the other by simply lifting the members 4i? from the sockets 19, reversing the seat end for end, and replacing the members 47 in the sockets.

The seat is provided with downwardly arms 49 terminating, rein front and in rear of the axle spectively,

limit the swinging movement of 15 so as to the seat.

From the foregoing description taken in connection with the drawings hereto. annexed, the operation and advantages of this invention will be readily understood. The construction is simple and inexpensive; the seat is readily adjustable to face forwardly orrearwardly, as may be preferred by the person propelling or drawing the vehicle. The seat, moreover, is not only resiliently supported but for swinging movement as well, the swinging movement'being, however, limited by the resilient arms 49 in such a manner as to obviate any sudden shocks. Fhe comfort of the occupant of theseat will also be materially increased by the facility with which the back member and the foot rest member may be adjusted and secured at various adjustments.

It is desired to be understood that in place of the resilient arms 49 other convenient means, such as a strap connecting the seat with the axle, may be employed to prevent the seat from tilting or swinging It may also be stated, that while the foregoing description recites a preferred resorted to.

of resiliently supporting the seat may be Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new, is
