GOLF-PRACTICE NET.
Application filed September 17, 1921. Serial No. 501,264.
To all wlwmit may cof/wem:
Be it known that I J oHN 'Ronnrs BOLTON, a subject of Great ritain, resldlng in the borough of Brooklyn, of the city of New' York, in the State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Golf Practice Nets, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, forming a part hereof."
In Letters Patent of the United States No. 920,907 dated May 11, 1909, there is shown and described a golf practice net which has proved to be very useful for practice outdoors and indoors. The construction, as there disclosed, however, has been found to be susceptible of improvements which constitute the subject matter of the present application. These improvements reside primarily in the provision of side extension nets to form an alley of some length thereby confining the flight of the ball more effectively than heretofore, and in detachable rigging associated with the' n et supports for givmg a greater degree of rigidity Whlle permitting greatest facility of assembllng and disassembling. In the device covered by said patent there is no provision for adjusting of any of the stays 0r struts nor is there any interconnection thereof whereby all may be tied into a more or less rigid structure. In accordance with the present invention the crossed side members are interconnected by means of adjustable stays which may be anchored to transverse struts extending loe-y tween corresponding members. The transverse struts are further adapted to be engaged positively with the crossed members by .conjugal elements .easy of manipulatlon for assembling and disassembling. Additional hooks may be employed for engagement with certain of the elements for interconnection and greater rigidity.
Another feature of the invention has to do with the means for supporting the ex tension sides of the net in'such manner as to space them from the supports and avoid the chance of impact of the ball and rebounding.
All of the advantages herein indicated will be described with greater particularityin connection with the accompanying drawing, wherein- Figure l is a view in perspective of the improved practice net showing the extenspaced from a standard.
a cross strut is tied to a stay and hook which engage other members.
Figure 5 is a detail view showing an extension hook for the net support to-hold'it In General appearance and uses the proved` net resembles that shown in the above mentioned patent. for the net comprises a double set of crossed members a, a and b, b', pivoted, repectively, at c, d. The corresponding members a, b are connected adjacent their upper ends by a transverse strut e which, in accordance with the present invention, may be readily engaged or disengaged with the respective members as when the frame is to beset up or collapsed. One. convenient form of joint is illustrated in detail in Figures 2 and 3. As there shown t-he member a is provided with a plate a2 in which is akey-hole slot a. The strut e is slotted adjacent 'its end, as at e', and is adapted to enter the enlarged portion of the key-hole slot a3 and be slid 4downward until the slot e and, perhaps, the corresponding slot on the opposite side of the strutpis 'firmly engaged with the plate a2 in the constrict'ed portion of the key-hole slot as.2 If necessary,.the,member a may be recessed, as at a4, in line with the keyhole slot as to receive the end of the strut e. The other end of the strut e is correspondingly formed and engaged with the corresponding elements `on -the corresponding member b, as will be understood. The lower ends of the corresponding members a, Zi may be interconnected in like manner by means of a transverse strut f. The lower ends of the other corresponding members a', b may likewise be interconnected by means of atransverse strut g which is engaged in similar manner with the members. To the corresponding members a, b
The supporting frameA Arai omer..
adjacent their upper ends and preferably on the outer sides thereof may be pivotally supported extension-rods it, h', the supporting bolt h2 tor the rod h being indicated in F igures 2 and 3. The head ha of this bolt may overlie the p-late a2 and assist in maintaining it in proper position on the inner tace of the member a. The nut h4 on the outer end of the -bolt will permit the rod h to beset at any desired angle. Between the lower end of the rod k and the outer side of the member a may be interposed a washer z' through which the bolt h2 passes. This washer may have twisted around it the end oit a wire stay le in which is a turn-buckle lc for adjustment ot the length. The lower end of the stay c-may be engaged with an eye Z'supported on the lower transverse strut g. Tn similar manner a wire stay fm with a turn-buckle m may extend between the upper end ot the member b to the opposite lower side of the strut g where it is engaged with an eye Z. The eyes Z, Z also carry hooks l n, n', respectively7 which may be engaged with eyes n2, n3 secured to the members a, b", respectively. The parts described, when properly adjusted and interengaged in the `manner indicated, will give rigidity to the saw-buck 'frames and all stresses thereon will be distributed equallythroughout. To increase this rigidity further, additional hooks vo, o" are pivotedto one ofthe members a b of each of the saw-buck frames, respectively, somewhat near the respective pivots o, d, and are adapted to engage eyelets 02, 03, respectively, on the other members a, b, re-
spectively. `The net p may be hooked on to vthe heads of screws a5, b2 on the upper ends of the corresponding members a, '5, respectively, and also to the ends ofthe extension rods h', the lower'end ot the net being carried forwardly and anchored on the bases 1 aliadas@ between each oit the corresponding members a, b and the stays g, gsomewhere between the ends ot the latter. This rigging insures additional stability and holds the net in proper position at all' times. l
spaced similar bases, one of which is shown` at p, each ot' such bases also carrying uprights p6. lln the tops oteach-of the tour standards p4, p6 are -supported extension hooks 07 with which may be engaged the upper .edges of the said extension nets r, r. These nets may also `be engaged with the upper ends of the corrsponding-member's a, b, respectively. Tn this way a well defined alley may be set up extending outwardly for some distance from the main net p,so that the Hight of the ball is well confined. 0f course, if desired either one or both of the extension nets r, r may readily be removed from the uprights. So long as they are sup-` ported onthe extension hooks p7, it is evident that no ballA can be driven against any one of the uprights p4, p6 and all dangerof rebounding is eliminated.
l claim as my invention:
The combination with a supporting `frame comprising a double set of pivoted crossed members, rods uniting and bracing corresponding crossed members, a net having its upper portion supported by said frame and having its lower end carried forward toward the feet of the player, extension nets extending forwardly trom said first named net towards the player to further confine the flight of the ball, and standards having eX- tension hooks to support said extension nets in spaced relation. thereto.
This specication signed this 16th day of Sept. 1921.
