CHARLES ANTHONY MONTAGE AND SYDNEY ADGEY, OF BURLINGTON, ONTARIO,

' CANADA.

' Application filed July 16,

Our invention relates to improvements in a collapsible drivers arm rest for automo-. biles and the object of the invention is to devise an arm rest for use in automobiles which will provide a strong and convenient rest for the drivers arm and which may be readily collapsed when not in use and which in its (201-. lapsed position will be entirely out of the way and cause no undesirable obstruction; a further object is to enable the rest to be adjusted vertically so that it may be positioned in the most convenient position for any driver. 7

Other objects will appear in the course of the following specification. v

Our invention consists in the construction and arrangement of parts, all as hereinafter more particularly described and illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which Fig. 1 is a front elevation of our improved arm rest in erected or open position.

Fig. 2 is a side elevation thereof.

Fig. 3 is a front elevation of the device in the collapsed or lowered position.

Fig. 4 is a vertical section on the line 4-4 of Fig. 3.

Fig. 5 is a top plan View of the arm rest portion, used in our invention, showing two arms extending laterally from the rear edge thereof.

In the drawings like characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the various views.

Our improved device comprises an arm rest portion 5 upholstered upon its upper face.

Rigidly secured along the rear edge of the portion 5 is a bar 6 which bar projects lateral-- ly at each side of the portion 5 to form arms 7.

Each of these arms is formed with a square portion 8 and a cylindrical journal porti0n9. On one arm 7 the square portion 8 is at the outer end and the cylindrical portion 9 at the inner end while on the other arm 7 the square portion 8 is at the inner end and the cylindrical portion 9 at the outer end.

A portion of the side of the automobile body is indicated by the numeral 10.

Secured to the body 10 by screws 11 are two vertically disposed channel bars 12 which are spaced away from the portion 10 by spacers. 13.

Each channel 12 is provided with a vertical slot 14.

Mounted upon each channel 12 is a bracket 15 and these brackets are secured in position by bolts 16 and nuts 17. The bolts are 1927. Serial No. 206,260.

prevented from turning-by square portions 18 which engage within the slots 14 (see Fig. 1).

Each bracket 15 is provided with a square orifice 19 so that the square portions 8 will just fit therein.

A tension coil spring 20 has one end secured to the under face of the portion 5 at the rear edge thereof and the other end connected to one of the channels 12.

The device is mounted so that the arms 7 e10 tend through the orifices 19 in the brackets 15.

It will be noted that the arms 7 are capable of reciprocatory axial movement within the brackets 15 and that when at one end of their rectilinear movement the square portions 8 are engaged within the square orifices 19 of the brackets in which position the arms are locked against oscillation due to the engagement of the square portions 8 within the square orifices 19. This is the position illustrated.

When the arms are moved to the left to the other end of their rectilinear movement the square portions 8 pass out of the brackets 15 and the cylindrical portions 9 enter thereinto. In this position the arms 7 may be freely oscillated. I

The operation of the device is as follows.

In Figs. 1 and 2, the arm rest is raised into the horizontal position in which it is rigidly supported since the square portions 8 are engaged within the square orifices 19 of the brackets 15 and oscillation of the arms is positively prevented.

The tension coil spring 20 acts to normally maintain the arms 7 at this right hand end of their travel.

This is the position of the device when it is raised or erected for use and by means of the bolts 16 and nuts 17 the height of the rest could be adjusted and secured in the most convenient and comfortable position for the particular driver using it.

When it is desired to collapse the device, the rest is simply pushed towards the left by hand against the tension of the spring 20 and when the cylindrical portions 9 of the arms 7 move into the orifices 19 in the brackets 15, the rest may be freely lowered into the collapsed position, shown in Fig. 3,and as soon as released the spring 20 draws the arms to the right to again engage the square portions 8 within the orifices 19 in the brackets 15 which looks the rest in its lowered position.

When again required it is raised by simply pushing the rest to the left, raising it into its horizontal position in Fig. 1 and when released the spring 20 again draws it to the right to lock it in this position.

It is to be noted that the device may be very easily and quickly moved from one position to the other and when collapsed it occupies very little space and would not cause any undesirable obstruction. Also the height of the rest to suit the comfort of various drivers may be readily adjusted.

While we have illustrated and described our invention as applied to an arm rest it will be apparent that it could equally well be applied to a collapsible seat for automobiles in which case the parts would be made larger and heavier.

From the foregoing it will be evident that we have devised an improved article of the class described whereby the objects of our invention have been attained.

What we claim as our invention is:

In an arm rest for automobile seats the combination with the body of the automobile of,-an arm rest platform upholstered on its upper face, aligned arms extending laterally therefrom at the rear edge thereof, spaced. apart brackets secured to the body of the automobile, means for adjusting said bracketsvertically, said brackets each providedwith a rectangular orifice through which one of said arms extends, each arm formed with a rectangular portion and a cylindrical journal portion, the rectangular portion being at the outer end of one arm and at the inner end of the other arm, the cylindrical journal portions of the arms adapted to freely engage within the orifices in the brackets to permit oscillation of the arms when the arms are at on end of their movement, and the rectangular portions of the arms adapted to fit within the rectangular orifices in the brackets to prevent oscillation of the arms when the arms are at the other end of their movement, and spring means normally urging the arms into their last mentioned portion.
