CHILD'S SEAT.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Dec. f, 1915.

Application filed February 18, 1915. Serial No. 9,075.

positive connection with a conventional toilet seat; and further objects are to provide such seats which are simple in construction, rigid in use, light and compact, composed of but few parts not likely to get out of order to require repair, and comparatively inexpenbe forced downwardly, the pin 20 thereon is sive.

My invention is fully described in the following specification, of which the accompanyin drawings form a part, in which like re erence characters refer to like parts in each of the views, and in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of my invention open; Fig. 2 is a similar View thereof closed or folded; Fig. 3 is a section taken on the line 33 of Fig. 1; Fig. 1 is an enlarged section taken on the line 4.-4= of Fig. 1; Fig. 5 is a perspective view of a detail of the tray shown in the preceding figures; Fig. 6 is a section taken through a modified form of tray, on the line 6-6 of Fig. 7; and Fig. 7 is a fragmentary view of the seat and modified form of tray, in plan.

In Figs. 1 to 5, inclusive, I have shown a device of the class described, comprisin a base 8 having an aperture 9 therein 0 a size adapted to a child, the base 8 being somewhat larger than the aperture in a conventional toilet seat over which it is intended to be placed for use.

Hinged to the base 8, at 10, is a back 11 which, when in position for use, rests upon said base and thus is prevented from'moving backwardly on its hinges, said hinges bem secured to the front of said back, andit wii be seen that said back may be folded forwardly and downwardly upon the base when the device is not in use.

Pivoted at 12, to each side ofthe base 8, is a standard or leg 13 in turn pivoted at 14 to an arm rest 15 and the rear end of which arm is pivoted at 16 to the corresponding side of the back 11, and it will be seen that sald legs and arms are thus collapsible when the back is folded on the base.

Secured to the forward, under side, of each arm 15 is a plate lf? having a guide 18 thereon for a spring leaf 19 carrying a pin 20 resting in a suitable opening of the plate 17, each arm being cut away at 21 to form a slot between itself and the plate 17, this being clearly shown in Fig. 4.

At 22 I have shown one formof tray which carries an outwardly directed lug 23 at each end thereof adapted to enter the respective slots 21, each of said lugs being provided with a hole 2 1 therethrough and through which the respective pin 20 is adapted to pass. With the tray in position for use, if one of the spring leaves 19 withdrawn from the respective tra lug 23, and said lug may be drawn out o engagement with the respective arm and swung in a horizontal plane on the other in 20 as a pivot. The lugs 23 are pivote to'the .respective sides of the tray, as shown at 25, whereby the tray, when in operative position, may be turned inwardly of the device when the latter is folded for storage or transportation, and each of said lugs is provided witha projection 26 beneath the normal position of the tray to prevent its moving downwardly out of horizontal position on its pivots 25.

The ends of the spring leaves 19 are preferably turned into rings whereby I may attach the buckles 27 of a strap 28, when the tray is not in operative position, to confine the child to the device, for it will be under stood that, if both pins 20 are disengaged from the tray, the latter may be entirely removed from the device.

Secured to the front side of the back 11 is a downwardly directed clip 29 which is rearwardly bent at an angle'of approximately 90 degrees of a circle at its lower end at a point a distance from the under surface of the base 8 equaling or slightly exceeding the thickness of a conventional toilet seat and with which it is adapted to engage, as shown in Fig. 3, the toilet seat being indicated by broken lines at 30, and it will be seen that this clip, preferably made of spring metal, maintains the device in position with respect to the seat 30.

It will thus be seen that I provide a device of this character which is readily folded into a compact package; which firmly grips a toilet seat upon which it is placed; which carries a detachable tray; and which tray may be disconnected from one side of the device at will and swung in a horizontal plane to the other side; and Which tray, when in normal position, may also be folded inwardly of the device; and I also provide the strap confining means when the tray is not in use. 7

In Figs. 6 and 7, I have shown a modified form of tray and arm connection means, comprising the tray 31 having a spring-actuated plunger 32 normally projecting from one end thereof and adapted to engage a perforated plate 33 on the respective arm 15, thus forming a detachable connection and also a spring latch for quick arm engagement; the end of the tray is preferably reinforced by means of a plate 34 turned over the upper edge of the plate 33, as clearly shown in Fig. 6.

The opposite end of the tray 31 is provided with a plate 35 carrying a downwardly directed threaded bolt 36 adapted to be passed through the horizontal portion 37 of a plate 38 secured to the respective arm 15, a thumb-nut 39 being threaded on said bolt to hold the parts in position, and it will be seen that a pivot is thus provided whereby the tray may be swung to one side of the device, in a' horizontal plane, when the spring latch 32 is released from its arm 15.

While I have shown two forms of tray, it will be obvious that other forms may be conceived and serve the purpose as well, and I may make tion of the device, within the scope of the following claim, without departing from changes in the main po:-'

the spirit of my invention or sacrificing its advantages.

In practice the device will be carried in a suitable fabric similar to those used by children for school books, whereby a mother may easily carry the same without drawing attention thereto, although the device folds into such compact form that it may be stored, with other articles, in an ordinary suit-case when a mother takes her child on visits to relatives or friends.

Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is v A childs seat, comprising a. base-plate provided with an aperture, a backhinged thereto, arms in collapsible connection with said base-plate and back, and provided, each, with a horizontal slot in the end thereof, a leaf spring beneath each arm, a pin on each spring passed upwardly to cross the respective slot, a tray provided with a lug at each end thereof resting in the respective slot and having, each, a hole therethrough for the passage of the respective pin to lock said tray in position to permit detachment of a desired end thereof and to pivot the attached end, said lugs consisting, each, of a horizontal perforated plate projecting beyond the tray and having a horizontal projection beneath the tray and a vertical proj ection secured to the side of the tray.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.

' WILLIAM HENRY GIBSON.
