. One practical embodiment of the intern tion is shown in the accompanying drawings, wiireinz- Figurrl is a side elevation of the device in its extended position, a fragment of the automobile being shown, the near wheel be" *ing removed.

Fig. 2 is a head end elevation of the bed detached from the automobile;

Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the device partly closed; I

Fig. 4 is a side elevation of the device in folded position.

Referring m; the drawings by characters The bed consists of three sections; a head section indicated-at H. a middle-section in-' dicia$ted at M, and a foot sectionindicated .Bt 1 I T The head section consists of side bars 1 which are connected by the underlying tie Specification of Letters Patent.

The side bars 5 are secured to the side bars 1 tie overlying strap hinges 6. The other e of the side bars 5am connected by the underiying tie board-7- Which is bolted oi otherwise secured to the sidebars.

section. Overlying strap hinges '11 connett the side bars 5 to the side bars 10. These hinged ends of the side bars '10 are connected by the underlying tie piece lfl'which is bolted or-otl'lerwise secured to the side bars, whiie ih free ends of the bars (11"])1Gf?1"- ably to receive the end tie piece 13 which a: secured to the side lmrs by bolts ii the threaded ends of which projectfrom the lower faces of the side bars for a purpose to be set forth.

Rods 15 having angled ends, not shown, are pivotally secured to the inner face of each side bar 10. adjacent their free ends, to provide legs for supporting the foot section, the angled ends of the legs providing feet.

Metal straps 17 are secured by screws or otherwise to the outer face of the head board 4, above thecdgc of which they rise, and the upstanding ends of these straps'are apertured to receive the extending ends of the bolts 14.. when the bed is folded.

Supporting rods 25 extend from each. top support 26 of the automobile, or other suit able part, and are secured to the sides of the-head section II by bolts or screws.

A tubular socket- 27 may be secured to the head board and an apertured plate 28 pivoted to the foot tie piece 1.3. A tubular meniher 28' passes through the aperture of the plate. 28 and serves to support a rod 29 I A similar rod 30 rises" from the tubular socket 27 in which it is detachably stepped, and these rods are providednt their upper ends with eyes 31 and 32.' 1tespee tively; These rods may be sectional or jomtethif desired, to facilitate packing the same beneath the seat of an automobile. 4

A'horizontal rod passes through the eyes 31 and 32, and'this rod is preferably composed of sections 33 and 34, provided with.

collars 35 and 36 respectively, which collars are adapted to abut the eyes 31 and 32 and retain the rods in'proper position. The sections 33 and 34 are joined by the sleeve coupling 37.
