tion of one of the hlnges;
JAMES nmmn'rr emrrrrn, or AUSTIN, r.-
CHAIR-C01.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JAMES E. GRIFFITH, a
citizen of the United States, residing at Aus-' readily converted into a cot when occasion"- demands.
The invention also contemplates the provision of means for hingedly connecting the various parts.
A still further object within the contemplation of the invention is the provision of legs for the device and means for bracing the legs.
The invention also contemplates generally improving the construction and enhancing the utility of a combination chair and cot.
With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed can be made within the scope of what is claimed without departing from the spirit of the invention.
,A practical embodiment of the invention is shown in theaccompanying drawings,
' wherein Figure 1 is a perspective view of the device in unfolded position and forming a cot; a
Fig. 2 is a view in side elevation of the device folded to form seats or chairs;
Fig. 3 isan enlarged view in longitudinal section of the device in folded positlon;
Fig. 4 is a plan view of the device in folded position; v
Fig. 5 is an enlarged view inside eleva- Fig. 6 is aplan view of the same;
Fig. 7 isa fragmentary view in perspective of a brace and showing the huge thereof.
Referring to the drawings by numerals of reference In carrying out the invention there is provided a cot composed of two end sectionsd indicated generally by the numeral 1, an
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented July 9, 1918.
Application filed March 25, 1918. Serial No. 224,591. I
two central sections, indicated generally by the numeral 2, the central sections being hingedly connected to the end sections and to each other.
Each end section consists of a three-sided frame 3, formed of strips of wood, metal or other desired material and suitably connected together. Pivotally secured to each end of each side iece of the frame 3 is a leg 4, and the pair oflegs at each end of the frame may be reinforced by the connecting rungs or bars 5, the ends of which are suitably secured to the legs 4. Hinged braces 6 have their ends connected to the side bars of the frame 3 and to the legs 4 and serve, when the legs are unfolded and the braces in extended position, to support and strengthen the structure.
Each brace 6 is formed, preferably, of two metal strips, each strip aperturedat one end for pivotal connection with (the side bar of the frame 3 or with the leg 4, and formed at the other end with an car which is apertured for pivotal attachment to the companion ear to form the hinge 7. The ear forming an element of the hinge 7 extends but part way across the end of the strip, thus leaving a straight edge which is bent or offset to meet its companion edge when the brace 6 is unfolded and so limit the-pivotal movement of the strips about their hinge. These meeting edges are indicated most clearly by the numeral 8, Fig. 7.
The central sections 2 consist of side bars 9, and the side bars of each section are joined together and to the end sections by means of hinges 10. Legs 4 are also pivotally secured to the side bars of one central pivot pin 12' while the. other pair is provided with apertures 13 which are adapted to aline when the structure is in open position, and through which a pin 14 may be inserted for the purpose of locking the device in unfolded position. These pins 14, as will be understood; are not a necessity and may;1 be removed from the chair-cot if desire t the like, secured ethereon, it being herein shown as covered with canvas 15. This covering 15 is preferably cut-away adjacent the hinged portions of the structure, as indicated by the numeral 16, so as to facilitate pivotally attached to the end frames and I foldable therewithin; hingedly attached cen-- tral frames to be elevated to draw'the end folding of the device.
As will be understood from the foregoing, the device may he completely unfolded, as shown'in Fig. 1, thus forming a cot, or it may be partly unfolded, with the central sections in elevated position,- as shown in Fig. 2, to form asset or chairs.
The device 'is particularly useful for camping and outing purposes as it 'may be readily stored and easily transported.
Having thus described the invention, What is claimed as new and sought by Letters Patent, is
1. A chair-cot, including end frames, legs frames'together and form seats hinged to the end frames, and a covering secured on the frames.
2. A chair-cot, including end frames, legs pivotally attached to the end frames, braces between theframes and legs, hingedly attached central frames hinged to the end frames, a support for the central frames pivotally secured to one of said frames to be elevated to draw the end frames together" be elevated to draw the end frames t0'- gether and form seats.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing asmy own, I have hereto afixed my signature in the presence of two Witnesses.
