Description

April 19, 1932. R. APPLEBY 1,855,130
FOLDING CHAIR Filed Aug. 14, 1931 .Patented Apr. 19, 1932 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE i ROBERT APPLEBY, OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, ASSIGNOR TO FRANK C. SNEDAKER & CO., INC., OF PHILADELPHIA, IENNSYLVANIA, A CORPORATION F PENNSYLVANIA FOLDING CHAIR Application filed August 14, 1931. Serial No. 556,959.
The principal object of the present invention is to provide an attractive, comparatively inexpensive and comfortable folding chair of which the back is adjustable and .which 51 may be lifted without accidental or unintenbe made to the accom an infr drawings forniiii) ing part hereof and in which Figure l is a perspective view of a chair embodying features of the invention and arranged for use.
Fig. 2 is a central sectional view of the same showing by dot and dash lines various positions of adjustment of the back and also showing cleats which operate to prevent accidental folding of the chair when lifted and yet permit of folding when the back is withdrawn in the general direction of its plane, and
Fig. 3 is a side View showing the chair in folded arrangement.
In the drawings l and 2 are saddle pieces. There are inclined cleats 3 and t arranged in pairs and attached to the inner faces of the saddle pieces, and the cleats of each pair are spaced and inclined in respect to each other'. 5 represents seat slats arranged on the saddle pieces with the spaces between them aligned with the spaces between the cleats 3 and 4. 6 indicates legs having their intermediate portions pivoted to the front ends of the saddle pieces and they are shown as provided with a brace 7. 8 is a back shown as of slats and its intermediate portion is pivoted to the arms 9. The lower portion 0f the back is insertable and removable by a movement in the direction o-f the plane of the back through the spaces between the seat slats into the spaces between the pairs of inclined cleats which prevent the back from folding when the chair is lifted. l0 is a cross piece on the back to support it on the seat slats.
The inclination of the back may be changed according as it is inserted intol the space between certain of the seat slats and into the space between certain of the pairs of cleats. When the parts are in the position shown in Fig. 2, the chair can be lifted by the arms or even by the back withoutaccidental folding because of the presence of the inclined cleats and because of their arrangement in inclined pairs. I-Iowever, by lifting the back in its own planewith a slight rocking motion of the legs, it can be readily withdrawn to per# mit of folding the chair.
It will be obvious to those skilled in the art to which the invention relates that modifications may be made in details of Vconstruction and arrangement and matters of mere form without departing from the spirit of the inventionwhich is not limited to'such matters or otherwise than the prior art and the appended claim may require.
I claim:
In a folding chair the combination of saddle pieces, inclined cleats arranged in pairs on t'he inner faces of the saddle pieces and the cleats of each pair being spaced and inclined in respect to each other, spaced seat slats arranged on the saddle pieces with the spaces between aligned with the spaces between the cleats, legs having their intermediate portions pivotled to the saddle pieces, arms pivoted to the legs, a back having its intermediate portion pivoted to the arms and having its lower portion inserted `and re-' moved byV a motionin the direction of its plane through the spaces between the seat slats into the spaces between the pairs of inclined cleats which prevent the back. from folding when the chair is lifted, and a cross piece on the back supported on the seat slats.
ROBERT APPLEBY.
