Fig. 4 is a vertical section of the housing with The ironing board 18 may be of the usual form 55 the board enclosed therein, as when not in use. and of dimensions suitable for folding into the no housing. At its base end it mounts a transverse bar 19, the opposite ends of which are slidably contained within the grooves 2020 formed in the flanges incident to the formation of the outwardly pressed ribs 12. It is preferred that this bar be mounted by folding a sheet metal plate 21 around it, then tucking the edges of the plate into slit 22 formed in the end of the board, then securing the parts together by pins 23 through the board. This construction adds stiffness to the board and prevents warping.
The board is functionally attached to and supported from the plate by a bracket comprising a pair of legs 25-25 connected by a cross piece 26. The cross piece is pivotally contained within a plate 2'? that is fixed to the underside of the board transversely thereof. The ends of the legs are pivotally attached by pins or bolts 28 to the lower ends of the opposite side flanges of the mounting plate. This bracket arrangement permits the board to swing from an upright position within the housing to a horizontal, extended position, and when in this latter position itis functionally supported by the bracket. When in functional position, the board is held level and against pivotal movement by reason of the ends of the cross bar 19 resting in abutment against lugs or stops 30 in the guide grooves 20 -20 and by reason of a supporting lug or stop 31 arranged on a leaf spring latch 32, to engage against the underside of the bar 19; the leaf spring latch 32 in this arrangement is fastened at its lower end to the plate and extends upwardly back of the base end of the bar and bears outwardly against the bar. When the board is swung downwardly from upright to working position, the bar 19 rides upwardly along the leaf spring 32 and just asthe ends of the cross bar engage the limiting stops 30, the lug 31 snaps'below the bar, thus the inner end of the board is securely held against upward or downward movement and the ing sleeves, etc., and this is hingedly attached as at 36, to the top edge of the back plate. When not. in use it is vertically extended, as shown in Fig. 4. When in use it is horizontally supported by resting against the. upper end of the leaf spring 32 which is extended to proper distance for this purpose.
In Fig. 6, I have shown an alternative form of latch device for supporting the boards. This consists. of alatch bar 40 supported hingedly from the plate by a hinge pin 41, and a coiled spring 43 is interposed back of the bar 40 to urge it outwardly. This bar is extended to serve as a support for the small board, and it also has a supporting lug 31 for the large board. 7
Assuming the parts to be so constructed and assembled, the board is used as follows:
When it is desired to use theboard, the housing door is opened, then the board is grasped by its upper end and swung outwardly and downwardly. During this movement the board pivots on the mounting bracket and finally the cross bar at its inner end comes against the stops 30 and the latch lug 31 snaps into place to hold the board in horizontal position. If the small board is to be used, it is swung outwardly and downwardly to rest against the upper end of latch plate 32.
Should it be desired to adjust the boards upwardly or downwardly, the supporting stud 15 is withdrawn from the apertured plate by outward pull on latch plate 13, then the parts are adjusted to the desired height and the spring released to again seat the stud in an aperture 8.
To close the device, it is only required that the latch spring plate 32 be depressed to release the stop 31 and the board lifted upwardly into the housing.
It is to be understood that various details of construction might be altered without departing from the spirit of the invention, therefore it is not the intention that the claims be limited only to details shown, but that they be given an interpretation commensurate with the scope of the invention.
Such devices may be built in, in new houses, or they may be made in cabinet form for attachment to walls'in houses already built. Theymay be made in various sizes and with or without the door or covering.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new therein and desire-to secure by Let ters-Patent is:
l. A device of the character described, com prising a housing formed with parallel opposite-110 side walls having vertical grooves in, their inner faces, a board mounting plate vertically adjustable within the housing and. having outwardly turned opposite edge. flanges formed with outwardly pressed vertical ribs seated within the 1-15 said grooves to retain and guide the plate in its vertical movement within the housing; said ribs forming inwardly opening guide grooves in the flanges of the plate, one wall of the housinghaving a series of vertically spaced holes therein and 1 said plate having a hole therein adapted to register with the wall holes, alatch mountedon the plate having a stud adapted to extend through said wall hole and to seat in the holes to support the plate at different positions of vertical adjustment, an ironing board, a supporting bracket having pivotal connection with the board at a spaced distance from its inner end, and comprising legs that are pivotally attached at their lower ends to the side flanges of the plate, a cross bar fixed to the inner end of the board with its ends slidably contained within the grooves opening to the inner faces of the plate flanges, stops fixed within the grooves against which the ends of the rod may abut to limit upward travel, and a spring latch fastened to the plate having a stop thereon adapted to engage with the board end to support it in position for use.
2. A device as in claim 1, wherein a second board is hingedly attached'to the upper edge of 140 the plate above the first board to fold into and from thehousing and wherein said spring latch is extended to serve as a support against which WILL E. HOWARD. ,4
