* 1,622,273 'S. T. ANDERSON TENT POLE SOCKET Filed Dec. 27. 1924 Dyan/0r if, Suez/er! TAnaersan Patented Mar. 29, 1921' tJITED? STATES SIEVERT THEODORE ANDERSON, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.
TENT-POLE SOCKET.
Application filed December 27, 1924. Serial No. 758,401.
This invention relates to improvements in tent construction especially adapted for tents of the umbrella type, an object being to provide means for reinforcing a tent at the corners and angles, whereby the stability and weather proof character of the tent will be increased.
More specifically stated, the invention provides a support engaging member in which the vertical support and the radial arms of an umbrella tent may engage without passing through the tent fabric, thus obviating the necessity of weakening said tent fabric by providing openings for the passage of the support and arms and preventing the passage of water and cold air where openings for this purpose are provided.
With the above and other objects in view, the invention further includes the following novel features and details of construction, to be hereinafter more fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings and pointed out in the appended claim.
In the drawings Figure 1 is a perspective view partly broken away showing an umbrella tent with the invention applied.
Figure 2 is a horizontal sectional view on an enlarged scale.
Figure 8 is a fragmentary elevation on an enlarged scale and showing one corner of the tent.
Figure 4: is a section taken substantially on the line 44 of Figure 3.
Figure 5 is a detail perspective view of one of the reinforcing angle irons.
Referring to the drawings in detail wherein like characters of reference denote corresponding parts, an umbrella type of tent is indicated at 10. This tent is provided with a central pole or support 11 from which extend radial arms 12, the latter serving to support the tent in extended form.
Extending around the upper edge of the F tent is a reinforcing strip 13 which is preferably formed of relatively heavy woven fabric and which provides an annular band within the upper edge of the tent. A similar strip 14 extends across the top, of the tent at the apex thereof and may have its opposite ends connected to the strip 13. These strips 13 and 14 prevent undue stretching and probable damage 'to the tent fabric and at the same time permit of the tent being erected and maintained in properly smooth taut condition for the proper shedding of rain.
Located at each corner of the tent, that is, at the apex and at the corners formed by the top and side walls, are reinforcing angle irons 15. These irons are provided with 0 openings 16 for the passage of rivets or fastening devices 17 which preferably extend through the reinforcing strips 13 and 14 and through the tent fabric and these rivets or fastening devices serve in addition to se curing the angle irons in place, an additional means of holding the reinforcing strips in position, the said strips being also stitched to the tent fabric as indicated at 18. Located within the angle of the iron 15 is an extension 19 which is provided with a socket 20 and this extension is connected to the angle iron by webs 21. The sockets 20 of the angle irons are adapted to receive the ends of the support 11 of the arms 12, the said angle irons forming the bottoms of the sockets so as to contact or engage the ends of the support and arms and prevent the same from passing through the tent fabric. The necessity of providing openings in the tent 8O fabric for the passage of the arms and the support 11 is thus obviated, so that the tent fabric is not weakened at these points of strain. Where openings for this purpose are provided, these openings are enlarged due to the stretching of the fabric so that rain and wind will pass through these openings into the tent, a disadvantage overcome by the present invention.
The invention is susceptible of various changes in its form, proportions and minor details of construction and the right is herein reserved to make such changes as properly fall within the scope of the appended claim.
Having described the invention what is claimed is A socket for tent poles and the like, comprising an angle iron base portion adapted to fit at the inner side and within a corner of a tent and being continuous and imperforate at the corner of the angle iron said base portion having a socket disposed between and in the common plane of the ends of the angle iron and opening at its outer end to receive a tent pole and the like, said socket being closed at its inner end by said iinperforate corner of the angle iron to prevent the pole from projecting through the Wall of the tent, said base portion having bracing Webs between the ends of the angle 10 iron and the socket to support the latter.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
SIEVERT THEODORE ANDERSON.
