BENJAMIN F.. GRABFELDER, OF STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA.
COLLAPSIBLE TOIEET CHAIR.
Application filed August 24,1921. SerialNo. 494,915;
To all whom it may concern Beit known that l, BENJAMIN I. Grime runner, a citizen ofthe- United States,residing' at Stockton, county of San Joaquin, State of California, having invented certain new'and useful Improvements in Collapsi' ble Toiletvchairs; andI do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the-same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings,*-and to i the characters of reference marked thereon, which form a part 'of this application.
This invention relates to improvements in household furniture, the principal" object being to provide a combined-toilet and 1 chair especially adapted for use in childrens nurseries and the like, and which may be arranged to partially fold to conceal its identity as a toiletand tothen present the appearance ofa small article of furniture of neat appearance.
Another object oftheinvention is to provide a device of this character which may be readily collapsed or knocked down, so as to make-a portable article which may be easily transported and which will then occupy a minimum space.
A further object of the invention is to produce a simple and inexpensive device and yet one which will be exceedingly effective for the purposes which it is designed.
These objects I accomplish by means of such structure and relative arrangement of parts as will fully appear by a perusal of the following specification and claims.
In the drawings similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the several views.
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of one form of my invention.
Fig. 2 is a sectional side elevation of the same taken on a line 97-2 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is a fragmentary cross section taken on a line 3-3 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 4 is a perspective view of a modified form of collapsible frame, with the seat and back portion removed.
Fig. 5 is a plan view of the seat used in connection with the frame shown in Fig. 4:.
Fig. 6 is a perspective view, partly in section of still another modified form of the device. f l "7 Referring now more particularly to the characters of reference, and particularly to Figs. 1, 2 and 3, the numeral denotes a pair of spaced arch frames, of piping or similar material, forming the legs and arms of ihe device each ofwhich has a horizontal bar 9, a certain distance below the arms 1, and adaptedto form-a support for a flat seat member 3 I provided with a substantially centered orifice t underneath which is removably hung the chamber 5, of 'theusual pattern, on clips 6 fastened to the seat thereunder.
Hinged onto the seat at the back'thereof isa back piece 7, adapted to fold down onto theseat recover the same, or to be raised to rest at'a sli htly backward angle, this back havingside extensions 8 of which pass under the top arms 1 of the frames and rest against the rear vertical leg members of thesame, as clearly shown in Fig. 1. Misaline mentof the seat relative to the frames is prevented by reason ofnotchcs 9 cut in the front and rear edges of the seat and through which'the leg members pass.
Slidably mounted on said legs are sleeves 10, thefront and rear pairs of which are rigidly connected to each other by boards 11. Each member thus formed is held to the seat by'means of co-operating catch members 1;, andserves' not only as a brace to prevent wabbling of the separate frames 1, but acts to conceal the chamber 8 from below when looking at the device from the front.
It will therefore be seen that while a firm, substantial and neat article is had, when assembled, it is but the work of a few seconds to release the catches 12, slip the members 1011 down the legs and off, raise and remove the seat and back as a unit, when the different parts may be laid together to occupy but a minimum of space, all the parts when so separated being fiat. Of course the chamber is also removed when dismounting the device, and it will also be evident that it may be so removed at any time when necessary, by withdrawing the same from one side or the other.
In the type shown in Figs. 4 and 5, the frame 1 is used without change, but the seat 3 is cut away at each corner as at 13 instead of having the notches or recesses 9. Also in place of the rigid front and back boards 11 held in place by the seat. I use a pair of equal and vertically hinged boards 14, between each frame member, while the sleeves 10 to which they are connected are held in position on the frame-legs by pins 15 through the latter, the seat 3 being thus independent of the board members. With this style of frame, which is the one 1 prefer, the sleeves 10, while turnable on the legs, are permanentl mounted thereon, since when the seat 3, which maintains the rectangularity of the frame as a whole, is re moved. the frames may be folded together by folding the members 1% inwardly, which draws the frames together as indicated by the dotted lines in Fig. a, and makes a very compact and easily transported device.
In the type of structure shown in Fig. 6, a preferably rectangular receptacle 16 is sed to receive a chamber 5 there being a permanent cover 1? on said receptacle forming a seat, which is erificed as at 18 to receive the chamber therethrough. Mounted in the receptacle between the seat andchamber is a slide l9,-preferably faced with rubber on its under side and adapted to pass over the chamber and make a snug fit with the rim thereof. Hinged onto the rear of the seat is a cover 20, also forming a back, which is provided with a cushion pad 21 which fits into the orifice 18 when folded down onto the seat.
This style of the device is not collapsible, having a permanent shape and size, and is merely a portable and compact device of its character.
From the foregoing description it will be readily seen that l have pr duced such a device as substantially fulfills the objects of the invention as set forth herein.
While this specification sets forth in detail the present and preferred construction of the device, still in practice such deviations from such detail may be resorted to as do not form a departure from the spirit of the invention, as defined by the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention, What 1 claim as new and useful and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
l. A collapsible chair comprising a pair of transversely spaced frames, each frame comprising a pair of spaced legs and a rigid connection therebetween and members turnably mounted on and extending between the corresponding legs of the opposed frames, and hinged together intermediate their ends in a vertical plane for folding movement inwardly of the frames, said members when outstretched being adapted to support a seat member.
2. A collapsible chair comprising a pair of transversely spaced frames, each frame comprising a pair of spaced legs and a rigid connection therebetween and members turnably mounted on and extending between the corresponding legs of the opposed frames, and hinged together intermediate their ends in a vertical plane for folding movement inwardly of the frames, said members when outstretched being adapted to support a seat member, the rigid connection between the legs being at the upper ends thereof and the hinged members being below said upper ends, whereby the frames above the seat serve as arm-rests and as a means to locate the occupant of the seat.
in testimony whereof I affix my signature.
BENJAMIN F. GRABFELDER.
