CANVAS AUTO COVER Filed Dec. 12.- 1927 INVENTOR Hug/2 FMk/ii ATTORN EY Patented Sept. 17,1929
noon 1. norm, or n'rmmn, uuzoiu CANVAS AUTO COVER Application fled December 12, 1927. Serial Io. 288,598.
This invention relates to improvements in protective coverings of canvas or the like for automobiles which are of necessity left out in the open and exposed to the elements for some a length of time as is frequently the case; and particularly to a means for securing the cover in place. The only securing means used at present in connection with such covers as far as I am aware, are ropes, which owing to their method of application to the cover are very apt to cause the canvas to tear. If no securing means of any character is used the cover is very apt to blow off when exposed to a w nd.
The principal object of my invention,
therefore, is to provide a securlng means for the cover permanently mounted in connection therewith, arranged to engage certain portions of the vehicle on whlch the cover is mounted in such a manner that the cover cannot possibly blow ofi, and so secured to the cover itself that there is no tendency for sa d securing means to' cause the canvas to be distorted or torn.
A further object of the invention is to produce a simple and inexpensive device and yet one which will be exceedingly effective for the purpose for which it is designed.
These objects I accomplish by means of such structure and relativearrangement of arts as will fully appear by a perusal of the ollowing specification and claims.
In the drawings similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the several views: I
Fig. 1 is a perspective elevation of my improved cover and its fastening means as applied to an automobile.
Fig. 2 is a perspective elevation of the device detached.
Referring now more particularly to the numerals of reference on the drawings, 1 denotes the cover itself, of canvas or the like which as usual is a more or less boxlike housing of a size to completely cover the car and 45 shaped so as to substantial follow the contour of the car, the bottom 0 the cover preferably terminating adjacent the ground so that the wheels 2 of the car are practically completely covered.
60 The cover is fastened in place bymeans of a number of straps 3 of suitable material such as leather or fabric webbing, which depend from said cover. The straps are formed with extensions 4 which are secured from end to end to the front and back anels or walls of the cover inwardly of the ine of the wheels, so that said extensions, at the lower edges of the panels are spaced both from each other and from the corner edges of said walls. Said extensions also preferabl cross each other and extend to the side e ges of the panels. The straps are adapted to project lengthwise of the car behind the wheels and then to the adjacent outer edges of the sides of the cover so that said straps then extend diagonally of the car. At such edges the sides of the cover are provided with snap hooks 5 or the like to make adjustable or detachable connection with rings 5 on the free ends of the straps ;the hooks being mounted on rigid straps 6 which are securely fastened from end to end onto the cover. A wider bracing or reinforcing strap 7 extends upwardly from the adjacent ends of the straps 6 and over the top of the cover, bein securely fastened thereto. By means of t is arrangement, it will be seen that the straps when thus fastened pass under the front and rear wheels of the car so that it is impossible for the cover to be dislodged from place by wind. The straps 4 and 6 are disposed so that when the diagonal straps 3 are in their fastened positions said straps 4 and 6 lie substantially in longitudinal alinement therewith though of course in different planes. The different sets of straps 4 and 6 therefore are in the form of inverted Vs, located substantially central of the width and length ofthe cover, bracing the cover at the points of pull of the straps and insurin that such pull will not cause the canvas to e warped or pulled askew. The strain of pull being distributed over a considerable area of the canvas and such strains being in;- parted thereto in practically straight lines with the line of pull, therefore there is no tendency for the canvas to tear.
From the foregoing description it will be readily seen that I have produced such a device as substantially fulfills the objects of the invention, as set forth herein.
v as defined bg While this s cification sets forth in detail the present an preferred construction of the devlce, still in practice such deviations from such detail may be resorted to as do not form a departure from the spirit of the invention,
the appended claims.
Having t us described my invention what I claim as new and useful and desire to secure b Letters Patent is:
1. Iii combination with a cover structure for a wheeled vehicle which comprises a body member to envelop the vehicle, straps secured at one end onto the end walls of the cover intermediate the side edges thereof and depending therefrom, an fastening means mounted on the side wall of the cover in spaced relation to the ends thereof and to each other and facing in angularly opposed directions toward the respective straps for detachable engagement with the free ends thereof.
2. In combination with a structure as in claim 1, in which the securing means for the straps comprises extensions formed therewith and attached from end to end onto the cover, and the mounting means for the fastening means comprises straps attached from end to end on to the cover; said extensions and last named straps, when the first named straps are connected to the fastening means,
being disposed substantially in longitudinal alinement with said first named straps.
In testimony whereof I afix my signature.
