TRUIN K.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Aug. a rare.
Application filed October 12, 1915. Serial No. 55,412.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, (Mrs) KATIE L. TRA- WEEK, a citizen of the United States, residing at Waelder, in the county of Gonzales and State of Texas, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Trunks, of which the following is a specification.
My invention is an improvement in traveling trunks, and consists of the construction, combination and arrangement of parts herein described and claimed.
The principal object of my invention is to provide a trunk in which all the conveniences of home are embodied. The trunk is especially adapted to the use of tourists when remaining abroad for a great length of time, and for purposes of convenience at such times, the trunk embodies a wardrobe, an arrangement of drawers, suitable trays, dressing case, book case and writing desk.
Another object lies in the provision of a permutation lock guard for the body of the trunk. The purpose of this latter provision is to frustrate surreptitious attempts to open that part of the trunk containing the more valuable articles.
With other objects in view which shall hereinafter appear, reference is now directed to the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of the trunk. Fig. 2 is a section on line 2-2 on 3 is a view similar to Fig. 2, showing the panels of the permutation lock guard, shifted. Fig. 4 is a section on line 4tt on Fig. 2. Fig. 5 is a cross section on line 55 on Fig. 3. Fig. 6 is an elevation of the keyhole guard door, parts being shown in section. Fig. 7 is a perspective View showing the various devices of the trunk, open. Fig. 8 is a cross section on line 8-8 on Fig. 7. Fig. 9 is a perspective view of one of the trays. Fig. 10 is a de tail perspective view of the trunk, some of the parts being disconnected and other parts being shown in section. Fig. 11 is a perspective view of one of the drawers. Fig. 12 is a longitudinal section of the roller drawer supports. Fig. 13 is a section on line 1313 on Fig. 10. Fig. 14 is a detail perspective view of one of the catches for the rear end of one of the drawers.
Reference is now directed to Fig. 10 of the drawings, in which 1 indicates. the framework of the trunk. The framework comprises the sides, back, bottom and front of the trunk, the latter part having a large opening 2, through which access is had to the inside of the trunk.
The top 3 of the trunk is secured to the back of the trunk body by a hinge 4, the top forming the dressing case when it is thrown open, as shown in Fig. 7. The dressing case contains all of the necessary articles for the completion of the toilet.
The writing compartment 5 is secured to one side of the trunk by the hinge 6 and is orovided with compartments in which writing materials may be kept. The writ ing compartment also includes a desk 7 which is supported by a collapsible brace 8, as shown in Fig. 7. The brace 8 is of such a'construction that it may be folded inwardly and so allow the desk 7 to swing downwardly. A door 9 is hinged to the compartment 5 so that, upon closing the door, any loose articles within the compartment 5 are prevented from falling out.
The book case 10 is secured to the other side of the trunk by a hinge 11 so that the book case may be swung out for use as shown in Fig. 7. The book case is suitably subdivided into compartments in which the books are stored. The books are protected by a door 12 which is openedand closed, at will.
A; metallic sheath covers the entire body of the trunk as well as the exposed surfaces of the top 3, writing compartment 5 and book case 10. The sheath 18 on the body of the trunk is partly broken away as in Fig. 10, to illustrate its application.
It is obvious that the construction of the trunk involves the methodsrin vogue, the parts being nailed and riveted in places where it is required and the frame is strongly braced by any well known means.
The bottom of the trunk is braced by a longitudinal brace 14- and a central crossbrace 15 as shown in Fig. 10. 'A series of rectangular frames 16, are secured to the trunk structure, at suitable intervals, as shown in Fig. 10. The intermediate frames 16 are paneled and form partitions between adjoining compartments in which articles of clothing may be kept. The upper rails of the frames 16, are apertured at intervals as at 17, (see Fig. 12).
The frames 16 support roller bearings on which drawers 18 are adapted to roll or bear. The roller supporting shafts comprise three elements 19, 20 and 21, the interadjacent to the frames 16. A roller 22 is mounted on the spindles 20 and 20 bedle and shaft.
tween the aforesaid shoulders and frames 16. Each extreme shaft 19 and 21 is provided with a spindle. 19 and 21 which rests in theadjac'ent aperture 17 in the outermost frames 16. Rollers 23 and 241 are mounted on'these spindles 19 and 21 adjacent the frames 16 and the shoulders formed on the shafts l9 and 21 at the juncture of the spin- 7 v The inner end of each of these shafts '19 and 21 is recessed as at 19 and-21 the extended ends of the spindles and 20 being adapted to rest in these recesses and soform'one continuous shaft.
. Rollers 25 and 26 are mounted on the spindles20 and 20 adjacent 'to the inner ends of the extreme shafts 19 and 21 and the intermediate frames 16. This construction affords a strong and easily rolling support for the drawers 18. a
The drawers 18 are of the well known construction and may be pulled out by a suitable strap handle 27. Flaps 28 may also be attached to the drawers so that when the flaps are closed the contents of the drawers may be either wholly or partially con- ;cealedl A horizontal partition 29 serves toclose' off the tops of the drawers 18.v
The drawers 18 are prevented from fallingrout when fully opened, by a catch 30. A hook 31 (see Fig. 1 1) may be substituted for a more permanent lock, for each drawer, the purpose of the hook. being to prevent the drawers 18 from sliding from their p1a .ces,.a s the trunk is conveyed.
Secured to the sides of the trunk just above-the partition 29 (see Figs. 8 and 10) are cleats 32 which support a lower tray 33 (see also Fig. 9). The lower tray has a number of heart-shaped boxes 34 in which valuables of different kinds are kept. The
boxes have suitable lids as shown.
An upper tray 35 rests on the tray 33.
The tray 35 is provided with a central glass covered box 36 which may be used as ahat box or for other delicate articles while each end of the tray is provided with an open compartment 37 in which other hats maybe placed; The remainder of the tray 35 being of a good dimension permits it to be used for such purposesas a packing place for articles of immediate use or asawork box in which sewing, accessoriesmay be kept. [For purposes of transportation the trunk is provided with stout handles 38 and 39 on itsfront and rear sides.
Mountedon each corner of the bodyof the trunk is a caster 40, while similar casters are also mounted on the writing compartment and the book case. The roller of each caster 40 is swivelly mounted on a bolt 4:1 which in turn is secured to a bracket 42, the bracket 42 being secured to the bottom of the trunk.
The opening 2 in the front of the trunk is closed bydoors 43 and 44, these doors being mounted on suitable hinges 15 at each side. The upper and lower edges of the opening 2 are provided on the inside with jam strips 416 against which the doors close.
The door 4A also has a jam strip 47 (see against undesired tampering, by a permutation guard 52 which consists of a series of rectangular frames 53, four being shown in the drawing. The two inner frames are provided with rectangular openings which are grooved as at at and 55 in their top and bottom surfaces.
Slides 56 and 57 which may be moved back and forth are mounted in these respective grooves. The slides 56 and 57 have openings 58 and 59 which are out of registration when the slides are positioned as in Fig. 2, but when the slides are moved to the position shown in Fig. 3, the openings 58 and 59 are in alinement and a passageway is provided for the key 60 to the lock 51*. Each slide-is roughened asat 61 so that the fingers can readily manipulate the slides.
Hooks 62 are provided for the retraction of the slide on which it is mounted when the slide is back and in the position shown in Fig. 3, the hooks enable the operator to pull the slide out, previous to closing the outer (100). 63. The door 63 fits very tightly in the openingin the outer one of the frames 53. The door 63 is held in place by a spring 64: which is engaged at one place (see Fig. 6) by the shank 65 of a button which has ahead visible adjacent to the door 63 (see Fig. 1). When the button is pushed, then the spring 61 is moved from the door 63 which may then be opened. j
Upon shifting the slides 56 and 57 until a passageway is established through the opening'in the rearmost one of the frames 53, a key 60 may then be inserted and the lock opened. 7
The top 3, the book case 10 and the writing desk 5 are provided with suitable locks 66,
while straps 67 serve as a convenient means for opening and closing the different compartments.
From the foregoing the construction of the device may be readily understood, but it is obvious that various modifications may be made without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the claims.
I claim 1. In a trunk, the combination with a frame having an open front, closed ends and superimposed movable compartments therein, a lid for closing the frame top and preventing access to said compartments, locking means for said lid, laterally disposed swingable compartments at the ends of the frame and closing thereagainst and against said lid, and locking means for said last named compartments.
