"UNITED STATES ELLA H. SOMMIER, OI SIOUX CITY, IOWA.
CHILD CARRIER.
Application filed April 9, 1925. Serial No. 21,839.
To (ZZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, ELLA H. SoMMER, a zitizen of the United States, and a resident of Sioux City, in the county of Woodbury and State of Iowa, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Child Carriers, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to a small seat in which a child may be carried suspended from the handsof two persons, suspended from a stationary object, or within an automotive vehicle.
An object of my invention is to provide such a seat which is of simple, durable and inexpensive construction, which is of very light weight, and collapsible to a small package.
Another object of my invention is to provide a seat which is quickly convertible from a carrying seat to a hammock or a seat adapted to be suspended from a stationary object.
Another object of my invention is to provide a seat adapted to snugly receive a child, secure it in position and to adapt itself to fit the body of the child so as to induce comfort.
More particularly, my invention is embodied in a seat comprising a hinged, collapsible seat member, a back and sides formed of a single sheet of fabric secured to said seat member on three sides thereof, a pair of handles secured in the fabric of the sides, to which may be attached suspending straps and fastening devices secured to the back and bottom member, or to which may be secured extensions for forming a hammock.
With these and other objects in view, my invention consists in the construction, arrangement and combination of the various parts of my device, whereby the objects contemplated are attained, as hereinafter more fully set forth, pointed out in my claim, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the seat as carried by the hands.
Fig. 2 is a sectional view taken on the line 22 of F ig. 1.
Fig. 3 illustrates the seat collapsed.
Fig. 4: shows the seat with suspending straps attached, suspended from a stationary object.
Fig. 5 shows the seat converted into a hammock, and
Fig. 6 is an inverted plan of a portion of the seat member with the hammock extensions attached.
I have used the reference character 10 to indicate a section of thin board which forms a frame for a portion of the seat member.
A similar board, 11, having one straight side and the other side curved in elliptical shape, as shown in Fig. 1, forms a base for the remainder of the seat.
A cloth envelope formed of an upper and lower sheet, 12 and 13, respectively, covers the boards, 10 and 11, and is raised by means of padding, 14, to form cushions. The cloth sheets, 12 and 13, are sewed together, as at 15, to form a hinge between the two sections of the seat. The sheets arejoined at their edges, as at 16 in Fig. l, by sewing.
The back, 17, and sides, 18, of the seat are formed of a single sheet of material, sewed to the edges of the envelope, their upper edges being substantially parallel with the edge of the seat, as shown in Fig. 2.
The sides, 18, are provided with loops, l9 and 20, between which the fabric of the sides is cut away as at 21.
Wooden handles, 22, loops, 20, by brads,
are secured in the 23, or other means. The handles, 22, are formed of short, straight sections of round, wooden rods in order to allow ready attachment of the hinged straps, which will later be described.
Tothe side members, 18, near the rear portions thereof, are secured straps, 24 and 25, the strap, 24:, being provided with a buckle, 26, to receive the end of the strap,
hen a child is supported in the seat the straps may be secured around its body to effectively prevent it falling'from the chair.
The seat may be carried between two persons while walking by means of the handles, 22, which are grasped by the hands of the persons, and may be deposited upon any fiat surface with the child retained in 1 place.
I provide a pair of straps, 27, which have at their lower ends co-acting snap devices,
28 and 29, by means of which the ends of the straps may be looped around the handles, 22, in the upper ends of the straps are sewed rings, 30, which may be hooked over screw hooks, 31, secured in an object such as a limb, 32, of a tree, and. the seat thereby suspended in a stationary, swing-like position. When so suspended the seat may be used as a childs swing.
In Figs. 5 and 6 I have illustrated the hammock attachment for the seat. The triangular strip of fabric 33, is provided at one end with a ring with armored openings 85. designed toreceive fasteners, 36, secured in the bottom and back of the seat, respectively, as shown inFig. 2. Two of the extensions, 33, are provided, one to befastened to the bot-tom of the seat and the other to the back. The fastening members, 36, on the back are arranged in a row of several fasteners extending from side to side, and when the seat is suspended from the extensions the rear extension, 33, will assume a dished shape conforming to the rounded contour of the seat back.
The straps, 24 and 25, may be utilized in this case to. maintain the child in the hammock and the handles, 22, allowed to depend freely as shown. The rings, 34, may be supported from suitable hooks provided for hanging the hammock, or may be strapped to the back seat and front seat, respectively, of a vehicle so as to suspend the child over the rear seat thereof.
It will thus, be seen that the childs seat is readily convertible from a carrying seat to a swing, or to a hammock, and may be 34, and at the other folded when not in use to a very small package, as shown in Fig. 3.
The use of handles maintains the fullness of the contour in the upper part of the seat and prevents the sides and back drawing together when the weight of the child is placed "upon the seat The strain is thus transmitted from the seat to the handles, as indicated by the lines, 37, and the seat member will be retained in level position in spite of the hinged: construction thereof.
Some changes may be made in the construction and arrangement of; the parts of my invention without departing from the real spirit and purpose of my invention. and
it is my intention to cover by my claim anymodified forms of structure or use of mechanical equivalents which may be reasonably included within its scope.
c aim my invention:
In a childs seat, a seat member, a back and sides formed of a sheet of fabric secured tothe edge of the seat memberon three sides thereof, handles secured to the upper edges of the sides, and fastening devices on the back and on the bottom member, to which may be secured hammock extensions.
Signed at SiouXC-ity, in the county, of Woodbury and State of Iowa, this 25th day of March, 1925.
ELLA H. SOMMER.
