Abstract

An adjustable boot racking assembly allows for the storage of boots and other outdoor footwear either in the cargo area of a vehicle or back of a pickup truck. The assembly is designed to be fully adjustable so that said assembly can attach to the inside of most makes and models of vehicles, thereby eliminating the need to purchase multiple assemblies for use in different models of vehicles.

Description

    FIELD OF INVENTION
  • This invention relates to an adjustable boot racking assembly designed to anchor to the inside wall or other protruding structure usually found on most models of pickup trucks or inner compartments of vehicle cargo areas.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • The drawings contained herein exemplify the preferred embodiment of the claimed invention. It should be noted that the invention is not limited to the embodiment shown. The embodiment shown is purely an example, and the invention is capable of variations of said embodiment. In the drawings,
  • FIG. 1 illustrates an example of the embodiment mounted in the bed of a truck.
  • FIG. 2 is a side view of an embodiment of the present device.
  • FIG. 3 is a front view of FIG. 2.
  • FIG. 4 is a side view of an alternate embodiment illustrating an optional base member.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE EMBODIMENTS
  • FIG. 1 illustrates a truck bed with the attached embodiment. The embodiment is an adjustable boot racking assembly designed to fit into the inner compartment of a vehicle cargo area or truck bed. The inner compartment of a vehicle cargo area or truck bed usually contains more than one sidewall, which extends from a bottom and contains a fixed reference point for mounting. For example, the sidewalls of a truck bed typically have a lip extending from the truck bed inwardly toward the center of the truck bed. In addition, some vehicles have an inner compartment cargo area, which may have a protrusion on the sidewall, under a headrest of a seat, or similar structure that can suffice as a fixed reference point for mounting.
  • FIG. 2 is a side view illustrating a first embodiment of the adjustable boot racking assembly 5. As shown, an adjustable boot racking assembly 5 comprises a boot receiving member 20 for holding boots or other footwear attached to a mounting unit 25. The mounting unit 25 comprises an upper vertical telescoping extension member 30, a lower vertical telescoping extension member 40, and a lower horizontal telescoping extension member 50. A sidewall connection member 10 is attached at the top end of the upper vertical telescoping extension member 30. The sidewall connection member 10 is mounted under a protrusion along a sidewall within the cargo area of a vehicle or the underside of the sidewall upper lip of a pickup truck bed. The sidewall connection member 10 can be solid or notched to overcome an obstruction within the upper lip. The upper vertical telescoping member 30 slides over the top end of the lower vertical telescoping extension member 40 where the lower pinhole 41 is aligned with the upper pinhole 31 and is secured with a pin or any other similarly functioning item 81 to retain the desired height of the embodiment. The lower vertical telescoping extension member 40 has a bend to allow said member to extend away from the side wall of the truck bed or vehicle cargo area. A lower horizontal telescoping extension member 50 slides over the bottom end of the lower vertical telescoping extension member 40. A pinhole 51 located on the lower horizontal telescoping extension member 50 is aligned with a pinhole 42 on the lower vertical telescoping extension member 40 and secured with a pin or any other similarly functioning item 82 to retain the desired length of the embodiment. A fine adjustment member 60 is attached at the end of the lower horizontal telescoping extension member 50 and comprises an outer cylinder 62 and inner cylinder 61, each with complimentary threading. The inner cylinder 61 threads into the outer cylinder 62 and is used to make minor adjustments to the height of said embodiment by turning the handle 63. A base member foot 90 rests on the floor of the mounting location and is attached to the bottom of the inner cylinder 61.
  • FIG. 3 is a front view of the embodiment with the referenced elements previously mentioned in FIG. 2, illustrating the planar design of the adjustable boot racking assembly.
  • FIG. 4 illustrates a second embodiment of the adjustable boot racking assembly containing a swivel base member 70 that is attached to the inner cylinder 61 whereby said swivel base member 70 may spin freely in the horizontal axis, but remain affixed to the bottom of the inner cylinder 61 at all times. The swivel base member may also make small degree movements in the vertical axis to allow said member to more easily maintain contact with the surface of the mounting location despite any irregularities present in said surface. The swivel base member 70 also may comprise two or more base member feet 90, which are attached to the bottom of said member. The base member feet 90 are then placed between corrugations or other obstructions present on the floor of the mounting location.
  • This device may, however, be embodied in many different forms such as a lower vertical extension member comprising alternate angles or no angle, accomplishing vertical and/or horizontal movement with threaded members, or restricting the movement of the telescoping members with clamping members. The base member can also be embodied in many different forms, such as independent swivel movement to enhance stability on uneven surfaces. This device should not be construed as limited to the embodiments set forth herein; rather, these embodiments are provided by way of illustration only and so that this disclosure will be thorough, complete and will fully convey the full scope of the invention to those skilled in the art.
