GOLF BAG SUPPORT Filed June 19, 1933 INVENTOR LESTER 6. Kqmsas.

ATTORNEY Patented Oct. 8, 1935 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE GOLF BAG SUPPORT Lester C. Komers, Beaver Dam, Wis.

Application June 19, 1933, Serial No. 676,555

3 Claims.

-My present invention, in its broad aspect, has to do with means for supporting a golf bag in such position on the fairway of a course that the clubs may be easily disposed therein or withdrawn, and said support being so constructed that it furnishes a desirable handle or means for carrying the bag along as the player proceedswith the game. More particularly it is my purpose to provide a support having a pair of pivoted legs,

7 so coupled with a carrying handle, that when the handle is grasped to carry a golf bag along the legs will be withdrawn to lie against the sides of the golf bag in a normal position of rest. In such position of rest the legs are out of the way and do not detract from the appearance of the golf bag nor present any parts which might engage the clothing of the player. When the golf bag is to be used the handle is released and slightly pressed down, in which case the legs are moved out to the operative position to support the golf bag in a semi-upright position so that the clubs may be readily withdrawn or replaced. My invention is especially designed for the convenience of players not using a caddy, and the device may 25. .be applied to all forms of conventional golf bags' now in use without in any way modifying the structure of the bag. Furthermore my device may be sold in stores and golf shops as an accessory and may be attached to the usual golf bag 30 without resorting to special tools or expert mechanics services. In addition to the foregoing, my present device is characterized by a special fitting which is designed to retain the legs and handle in either a position of rest or in an opera- 35 tive position, said fitting being an ordinary machined casting or the like, to which the handle and the legs are attached. My device is very simple in construction, and can be manufactured and sold at a small price; and there are no parts likely to get out of order, or to become greatly worn or rendered inapt by exposure to the Weather.

In addition to the above objects and advantages 45 of my invention; others will appear as the detailed description of the same, taken in conjunction with the drawing, proceeds; however, I wish it to be understood that slight changes in structure' and arrangement of parts may be desirable 50 under varying conditions of use, and the right to make such changes is reserved provided they fall within the scope of what is claimed.

In the drawing wherein is illustrated the preferred form of my invention;- 55 Figure 1 is a side View of the same with the parts in position to transport the bag by grasping the handle;

Figure 2 is a side view of the bag with the legs of the support positioned to hold the bag in a semi-upright position; 5

Figure 3 is a detailed view of the operative parts of my device where they are attached to the fitting, and

Figure 4 is a perspective view of the fitting used to attach the handle and legs of my support to a 10 golf bag.

In the. drawing wherein like characters of reference are used to designate like or similar parts throughout the several views:

The numeral (I) designates a golf bag of con- 15 ventional form having a base (2) a top (3) provided with the usual top collar (4), a handle (5), and a sling (B). The bag may be either of the rigid or semi-rigid type and may be of leather or fabric. The bag itself 'forms no part of my 20 present invention.

Attached on each side of the golf bag (I) is a plate or fitting (l), the details of which will be more fully described. The two legs (8) of my support are pivotally attached to the fitting at (9), and the arms (it) of the U-shaped handle (H) are also pivotally attached to the fitting as at (l2) back of the point of attachment of the legs. A connecting rod (l3) pivotally connects each leg (8) with each arm (N3) of the'handle, so that the legs and the handle are always held at an obtuse angle to each other; certain-adjustment of the angle may be affected by placing the end of each rod in the series of openings (M) in each arm, as shown in Figure 3. Accordingly when the legs (8) are in the extended position shown in Figure 2 to engage the ground and hold the golf bag in a semi-upright position; the handle (I I) lies down along the back part of the bag. When the handle is grasped after the manner shown in Figure 1 to transport or carry the golf bag, the connecting rods (l3) withdraw the legs (8) so that they lie out of the way along the sides of the bag. In this position the handle is properly positioned to aiford an easy means for lifting and carrying the bag.

The fitting to which the legs and the handle are attached, and which has been designated (1) is preferably attached (one on each side of the bag) to the bag collar (4) by screws or the like (I5) and the arms (it) of the handle are pivotally attached to the boss ([6) At either side of the boss ([6) is an arcuate, beveled or rounded elevated part, which has a low part at (H) and high parts at (E8) forming a drag upon the hanspring metal cover element (2|) is attached, and

the legs are attached beneath the cover in a reduced portion (22) and the tensionof the cover (2!) holds the legs against the bag when inoperative. Between the reduced portion (22) and the boss (E9) is a curved or beveled raised portion (23) which exerts a drag on the movement of the leg prior to the point where the leg is brought to a stop by the angular part (20): as

shown in dotted linesin Figure 3.

It will thus be seen that any lost motionor looseness between the parts (handle and legs) is prevented by the formation of the fitting, and a. slight drag is exerted upon the movement of the legs and handle so that they will be held fric tionally in the desired positions without any tendency to slip or collapse.

From the foregoing it will be seen that my invention consists in but seven principal parts; two legs, a handle, two connecting rods and, two fittings. These parts are so formed that they are not likely to get out of order, and the. entire device may be manufactured and sold at-a relatively small cost.

In operation, but slight pressure upon thehandle 'is' necessary to throw the legsout to; support a golf bag in a semi-upright'position, and the weight or the bag is sufficient to. overcome the drag so that the legs are'withdrawnagainst the sides of the bag when the handle is grasped and the bag lifted.

While Iv have described a specific form of my .invention in detail in the foregoing, it is again emphasized that interpretation ofthe scope of my invention should only be conclusive when made in the light'ofthe subjoined claims.

Iclaim; V 1. A golf bag supportcomprising a substantially U-shaped handle element, the respective end portions of which extend to either side of a golf bag, a pair of leg members, a pair of fittings respectively attached to opposite sides of the golf bag adjacent the top thereof, a leg and an end portion of the handle attached to each fitting, a rod pivotally connecting each leg with the corresponding end of the handle, and the fitting formed with means for taking up lost-motion between the fittings and handle end portions and legs. 2. A golf bag support comprising a substantially U-shaped handle element, the respective end portions of which extend to either side of a golf bag, a. pair of leg members, a pair of fittings respectively attached to opposite sides of the golf bag adjacent the-top, a leg and an end portion of the handle pivotally attached at different points lto each fitting, a rod pivotally connecting each leg with the corresponding end of the handle and adjustable to permit modifying the normal angle between the legs and handle, and each fitting formed with raised portions adjacent each point of'connection of a leg and an end'portion of the handle therewith functioning to take up lost motion-between the fittings and handle end portions and legs, and exert a'drag thereon when the limit of pivotal movement thereof is approached.

3.. A golf bag support comprising a handle element having opposed end portions'for disposition on either side of a golf bag, a pair of leg i members, a pair of fittings, one for attachment on either side of a golf bag, a leg member pivotally attached to each fitting, an end portion of the ha'ndle element pivotally attached to each fitting, the point of pivotal attachment of the leg member and the end point of the handle being at aFdifferent place on the fitting; members connecting each leg with each end portion of the handle element; each fitting having raised portions, and a cover element functioning in cooperation 40 with the raised portions to spread the legs when they are disposed at an angle to the bag to support the same, and draw the legs together against the sides of the bag when the bag is being transported;
