Specification of Letters iatent. Patented June 13, 1916 Application filed December 17, 1915. Serial No. 67,367.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, JonN B. YATEs' WARNER, a citizen of the United States, and
a resident of S'cottsville, in the county of Monroe and State of New York, have in-i vented a. new and ImprovedPortable Roof, of which the following is a full, clear, and
' exact description.
' My invention, while capable of various uses as a. roof orsh'elter,1s more particularly designed, in its'illustrated form, for providing a roof for stacks of hay, straw, or
the like.
An object-of the invention is to provide a structure composed of elements that may be assembled in small compass in knockeddown form for storage or shipping and which may be readily erected inany desired length according to the size of the stack or other material or location to be covered or sheltered.
A further object ofthe invention is t'o'provide supporting and anchoring means for the roof of the structure, which may-be readily entered in the stack .or in the ground andf will afford substantial support forthe roo Other objects and advantages of'm y improved structure will appear from the description following.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification in which similar reference characters indicate corresponding parts in all the viewsl Figure 1 is a longitudinal vertical section of a portable structure embodying my invention, showing the same in use on a stack;
Fig. 2 is a transverse vertical section on the line 22, Fig. 1; Fig.3 is a fragmentary perspective view showing means for connecting an anchor tothe roof plates; Fig. 1 is a detail transverse vertical section on an enlarged scale, showing the manner of con necting the roof plates or sections with the ridge pole of the structure; and Fig. 5 is'an enlarged cross section of the ridge pole and a coupling employed to flexibly supportthe same on my improved props, a fragment of one of which is shown in side elevation.
In constructing a practical embodiment of my invention in accordance with the illustrated example, two sheets 10 are provided of corrugated iron, which may be disposed as a lean-to or as a peak-roof. In case of a hay stack, or the like, the sheets will be disposed to form a peak-roof. as shown. The
which is supported by props 12. I The lower ,ends' of the roof sheets are secured to anchors 13.
On each 'roof sheet, near the-ends, cross barsl l, 15 are riveted, or otherwise fastened,
thereto to reduce the flexibility of the sheets,
and to provide means for the securing ofithe sheets 1n pos1t1on as hereinafter explained.
The respective cross bars of a sheet, it will. be observed, are at differentdistances from the'ends, the purpose of which is to permit of the upper ends of the sheets at one side cent upper ends of the sheet at the opposite of the peak-roof extending over the adjaside of the roof, as clearly shown in Fig. 2.
Onthe ridge pole 11, fastening means is provided to detachablyengage the upper endszof' the roof sheets. Preferably, the fastening means consists of hooks 16, formed with loops l7'loosely embracing the ridge pole and formed,'with hooks 18 at their lower ends to engage the adjacent cross bars 14, 15 of'the' sheets. The; roof sheets will thus be firmly sustained on, theridge pole but will be free to be moved to vary their angular positions. 7
The ridge pole 11 is formed of short sections, preferably of pipe, the sections being connected by couplings '19 and the fastening members'16 are strung on each section. In practice, the corrugated'roof sheets are approximately25 inches wide by 10 feet long and the ridge pole sections may be 2 or l feet, or alternately 2 and 4: feet. The described form and arrangement permits of the structure being extended to any desired length and also, permits of its being gradually shortened by the removal of the roofing 21.;The prop is received at its upper end in a three-way, or foureway coupling 22, which embraces the ridgepole 11 sufficiently loose to permit of thepole changing in its angular position relatively to the props in case the stack should settle. The standards 20 are connected with the anchors 21 by four-way couplings 23, there being also preferably employed, a nut 24 on the anchor which takes into the Said coupling. If desired, the standard and the coupling 22, at the top thereof, may be taken ofl' and the ridge pole passed directly through the four way coupling 23. Each anchor 21 is formed with a screw or spiral 25, intermediate the ends thereof, so as to terminate at its lower end a substantial distance from the lower end of the anchor, whereby to provide an elongated pointed shank 26 below the spiral. VVith'z' the described form of prop, the straight Shank terminal 26 is entered in the hay stack or other material and the anchor is then turned to screw the spiral into the material, the straight front terminal serving to guide the spiral straight into the material. The construction insures the firm securing of the prop in position so that a substantial body of hay would have to be lifted by the wind to displace the prop.
The anchors 13 for the lower endsof the roof sheets 10 are, in general, similar to the anchor members 21 of the props 12, each anchor being formed with a spiral 27 sufiiciently distant from the pointed lower end of the anchor to provide a straight shank member 28 corresponding with the member 26 of the anchor 21. In eonnectionwith each anchor 13 I employ means to engage and tie two adjacent roof sheets near the lower ends. Said means includes a double hook 29, the hook members 30 of which are adapted to engage beneath an adjacent cross bar 14 or 15 on the respective roof sheets. The
Copies; of this patent may be obtained for five cents each, by addressing the hooks 29 are suitably secured to eyes 32 of the respective anchors 13, a piece of wire or cord 31 serving for the purpose.
Having thus described my invention ll claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
A structure of the class described including separate roof sheets having cross pieces secured thereto near each end, the respective cross pieces of a sheet being at diflerent dis tances from the respective ends, a ridge pole made in detachable sections, hook members loose on the ridge pole to turn thereon, and adapted to detachably engage the adjacent cross bars on the roof sheets, props for the ridge pole, said props having self-anchoring lower portions, couplings receiving the upper ends of the props and loosely engaging the ridge pole to permit relative movement thereof to alter their angular relation, anchors for the lower ends of the roof sheets, fastening members adapted to detachably engage the cross bars of two adjacent roof sheets, and means to secure said fastening members to the adjacent anchors.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
