Description

IRONING BOARD Filed June 16, 1930 o i 7 I 3 0 7/ Inventor Patented Mar. 17, 1931 UITED STATES PATENT OFFICE IRONING BOARD Application filed June 16,
This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in ironing boards and the primary object of this invention is to provide a compact ironing board capable of being folded. so as to reduce the size of the ironing board so that the same may readily be placed within a travelling case or the like.
A still further object of the invention is to provide an ironing board comprising a pair of end. sections whereby the sections may be folded one upon the other in order to be reduced to a compact structure so as to require but little storage space.
A still further object of the invention is to provide an ironing board comprising a pair of hingedly connected sections associated therewith for retaining the invention in an unfolded position.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent during a study of the following description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, where- 1n:
Figure 1 is a top plan view of my improved ironing board,
Figure 2 is a bottom plan view thereof,
Figure 3 is an end elevational view thereof,
Figure 4 is an edge elevational view showing the section of the board in folded position.
With reference more in detail to the drawings, it will be seen that my improved ironing board comprises a pair of elongated tapering boards 5 and 6 having their adjacent ends hingedly connected together by suitable hinges 7. It will be noted that the widest end of the board 5 is hinged to the smallest or narrowest end of the board 6.
Each of the boards 5 and 6 are arranged in a suitable frame, which frame consists of a pair of longitudinal angle irons 8 which extend along the side edges of the board with one flange of each angle iron disposed against the bottom face of the board section. The frame further includes cross bars 9-9 which connect the angle iron side members 8 and extend transversely of the board section, one of said cross bars being disposed at one end of each section remote from the end 7 and the other of the cross bars 9 connecting in- 1930. Serial No. 461,490.
termediate portions of theside members 8 of the frame.
For retaining the sections 5 and 6 in an unfolded position or in that position shown in Figures 1 and 2, there is secured to each of the sections 5 and 6 adjacent their hinged ends substantially U-shaped guide brackets 10 for slidably accommodating a substan tially U-shaped elongated catch member 11.
The catch member 11 is preferably formed of metal and the legs of the same at the free ends thereof are bent laterally to provide the stops 12, so that when the catch member 11 has been drawn through one of the guide brackets 10 so as to permit folding of the board, the stops 12 will engage the remaining guide member 10, thus preventing loss of the catch member when the board is in the folded up position. i
The board section 6 at its widest end has pivoted thereto a pair of stop members 13 as at 13'. When the stop members 13 are in position as suggested in Figure 3, and the board is in an unfolded position to rest on a table or the like, it will be seen that the split members 13 may engage one edge of the table or support to prevent longitudinal movement of the board in one direction when using the ironing board.
For retaining the sections 5 and 6 in a folded position that is folded one upon the other, in Figure 4, there is provided at the widest end of the board 6 a suitable hook 14 adapted to engage an eye member 15 at the free end or smallest end of the board section 5, so that it will be seen that the sections 5 and 6 will be securely retained in folded position one above the other.
From the foregoing it will be seen that I have devised a very simple, strong and durable board which may be readily folded into a compact position and it is to be understood that each of the sections 5 and 6 may be of such a length that when the board is so folded the entire board may be placed within a satchel, travelling bag or the like. Further, itwill be appreciated that a board of this character will also require but a minimum amount of storage space.
Even though I have herein shown and described the preferred embodiment of my invention, it is to be understood that the same is susceptible to changes fully comprehended by the spirit of the invention and the scope 5 of the appended claims. 7
Having thus described my invention, what I wish to claim as new is:
1. An ironing board comprising in combination a pair of hingedly connected sec- 13 tions, a substantially inverted U-shaped bracket secured at the ends of each section adjacent the hinged connection, a substantially U-shaped resilient catch adapted to be passed through the brackets when said sec- 15 tions are in longitudinal alinement, said resilient catch being normally eXpansible whereby opposite portions of the catch trictionally engage adjacent portions of said brackets for retaining said catch against dis placement relative to the brackets.
2. An ironing board comprising in combination a pair of hin-gedly connected sections each provided with a guide bracket, a normally expanded contractible catch member 7 engageable with the brackets for retaining said sections in alinement, said catch member having opposite portions thereof frictionally engaging said bracketswhen said catch is in an expanded position, and said catch at one end thereof provided with means engageable with one of said brackets for limiting longitudinal movement of the catch relative to the brackets in one direction,
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
