5 PROBE CANE OR WALKING STICK OR THE LIKE Filed Jan. 15, 1926 Aug. 3 1926.

Patented Aug. 3, 1926 UNITED STATES SOL PROBE, OF ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI.

CANE OR WALKING STICK OR THE LIKE.

Application filed January This invention relates to a cane or walkmg stick having associated therewith, pref- ,erably as part thereof, illuminating means in the form of one or more electric lamps.

The invention resides in details of construction and arrangement of parts. The main object of the invention is the provision of a cane or walking stick with illuminating lamps, the construction being simple and comparatively inexpensive.

The invention comprises in general a cane having at least part thereof of hollow construction to provide for the location. therein of one or more batteries. ing one or more lamps in the cane are provided and the parts of the cane are provided with suitable contacts for making and breaking electrical connection of the lamps with the battery or batteries. The preferred construction of the circuit making and breaking device enables the closing and opening of the circuit by relative movement of the cane or walking stick parts as will be more fully explained hereinafter.

For a complete understanding of the invention, reference is to be had to the following description and the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification.

In the drawings:

Fig. 1 's a side view of the cane or walking stick with parts broken away;

Fig. 2 is a section on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1 with the contacts open; v

Fig.3 is a view similar to Fig. 2 but shows the contacts closed;

Fig. 4 is a fragmentary view of the cane;

Fig. 5 is a sectional view on the line 5-5 of Fig. 4;

Fig. 6 is a sectional view on the line 66 of Fig. 1.

Referring to the drawings in detail, the reference character 10 designates the cane or walking stick generally. This cane comprises the rod portion 11 and the preferably rounded head 12. The rod 11 has a section 13, hollow as shown, and having a screw threaded portion 14 on which is secured a retaining cap 15 having an upper inner flange 16. The lower end of the head 12 has an outer flange 17 and is held in place rotatably by the retaining cap 15.

The rod 11 has a section 18 provided with an upper screw-threaded portion 19 to which is secured a retaining cap 20 pro-- vided with an inner flange 21. The rod sec- Means for hold- 15, 1926. Serial; No. 81,450.

tion 13 has a lower outer flange 22 and is rotatably held in place by this retaining cap member 20. The section 18 is also hollow and has parts thereof cut out to provide spaced annular windows 23. A transparent hollow cylinder is disposed within the rod section 18 as at 24 and is retained in place at its lower end by a ring 25.

It will be understood that the head 12 and the rod sections 13 and 18 are secured together but are at the same time relatively rotatable for a purpose which will be hereinafter explained.

The head 12 has at one end thereof a socket 26 for a lamp 27. A cap 28 may be removably slipped on this end of the head 12 to protect or hide the lamp 27 as may be desired. The other end of the head 12 is provided with contact members 29 and 30 secured in insulating studs 31 and 32 fixed to the inner wall of this end of the head. conducting wires 33 connect these contact members with the socket 26.

The rod section 18 is provided with a socket member 34 for a lamp 35 and contacts 36 and 37 held by studs 38 and 39. Electric wires 40 connect the socket 34 with the contacts 36, 37.

The rod section 13 contains the batteries B. Each battery hasthe usual pole pieces. The upper battery has the pole pieces 41 and 42 for contact make and break with the contact members 29 and 30, respectively. Similarly, the lower battery has the pole pieces 43, 44 for contact make and break with the contact members 36 and 37, respectively. It will be understood that instead, of the two batteries a single battery may be used with poles at both ends. The batteries B are held in place within the rod section 13 by retaining spring members 45 and 46.

The operation of the device will be readily understood. To light, the lamps it is merely necessary to rotate the cane sections so as to bring the battery pole pieces into contact with the corresponding contact members. If the lamp 27 is to be lighted, it is merely necessary to rotate the head until contact members 29, 30 engage pole pieces 41, 42. To light the lamp 35 it is merely necessary to rotate the rod section 18 until the contact members 36, 3 7 engage the battery pole pieces 43, 44. Opposite rotationof the respective parts extinguishes the lamps. lit will be apparent, also that both lamps be simultaneously lighted or extinguished by moving the rod section 13 so that the battery pole pieces, upper end lower, engage with the adjacentcontact members or are moved out of engagement therewith.

While the preferred embodiment of the invention has been described and illustrated,

in will be understood that the invention is not limited to the exact disclosure but that certain changes in details of construction and arrangement of parts may be made Within the limits of the appended claim.

Lemme What is claimed is:

A cane of the kind described having a central hollow section and an end section at each end of the central hollow section, current furnishing means Within said central sect-ion, a lamp carried by each of said end sections, said sections being relatively movable to make and break electrical connection between said lamps and said current furnishing means.
