GOLF BAG AND ACCESSORY THEREFOR Fiied June 5', 19:57
'INVENTOR 144F010] 72/44? (HZ/0N5 ATTORNEY Patented Apr. 19, 1938 UNITED STATES ATENT. OFFICE GOLF BAG AND ACCESSORY THEREFOR Harold Stuart Calkins, Wayland, Mich.
Application June 5, 1937, Serial No. 146,639
2 Claims.
This invention relates to golf bags and accessories therefor. It is particularly directed to a golf bag accessory at the open end of the bag for keeping the golf clubs from knocking together when Within the bag.
An object of this invention is to provide a golfbag with accessory of the character described for holding the golf clubs upright and against movement whereby the stayed bag will stand up on any fairly level place. 7
Still another object of this invention is to pro-- vide an accessory of the character described which may easily be detachably attached to 'golf bags now in use.
'Yet another object of this invention is to provide a strong, rugged and durable golf bag accessory, which shall comprise few and simple parts, be relatively inexpensive to manufacture, and which shall yet be practical and efficient to a high degree in use. g 7
Other objects of this'invention will in part be obvious and in part hereinafter pointed out.
The invention accordingly consists in the features of construction, combinations of elements, and arrangement of parts which will be exemplified in the construction hereinafter described, and of which the scope of application will be indicated in the following claims.
In the accompanying drawing, in which is shown one of the various possible illustrative embodiments of this invention,
Fig. 1 is a side elevational view of the upper part of a golf bag provided with an accessory embodying the invention, with parts broken way in cross-section; and
Fig. 2 is a top plan view of the golf bag and accesso-ry.
Referring now in detail to the drawing, I0 designates a golf bag which may be of usual construction, and provided with an accessory I I embodying the invention, assembled therewith in the novel manner hereinafter described.
The golf bag Ill comprises a generally cylindrical wall l2 having an upper rim edge I3. My improved accessory II for holding the golf clubs against knocking together and in upright posifrom one of the split edges, when moved to fully open position.
The lower portion of strap l4 receives the upper end of the golf bag. Within the upper portion of said strap and above the golf bag is a disc or plate 20 of resilient, compressible or flexible material such as sponge rubber. The periphery of disc 20 contacts the inner surface of strap I4 and maybe vulcanized or otherwise attached thereto. The strap I4 forms a'depending skirt on plate 20 receiving the upper end of the golf bag.
Said disc or plate 2 0 is formed with a plurality of spaced vertical through openings 2|, arranged in any suitable manner, preferably in circular rows of equiangularly spaced openings, with an additional central opening, so that the openings will be fairly equally distributed or balanced. The openings are preferably circular and of such dimension that when the handle of a club is inserted therethrough into the bag, the handle will be gripped by a yielding resilient pressure, as seen in Fig. 1.
In said figure there is shown a golf club 25 inserted into the bag through an opening 2| and held against slipping out or side-sway. When more than one club is inserted in to the bag, the clubs cannot knock together, thus preventing injury to the clubs and rattling.
As shown in the drawing, the usual carrying strap 26 of the golf bag I0 passes through the slot H3 adjacent the point where the upper end of said strap is attached to the golf bag. The slider actuated fasteners I! close the slot l6 and hold the accessory H on the golf bag. The accessory H may be removed by pulling the slider I8 down and detaching the same from one of the edges of the split l5.
With my improved accessory the weight of the clubs in the bag is balanced, so that the bag may stand upright on any fairly level place.
It will thus be seen that there is provided a device in which the several objects of this invention are achieved. and which is well adapted to meet the conditions of practical use.
As various possible embodiments might be made of the above invention, and as various changes might be made in the embodiments above set forth, it is to be understood that all matter herein set forth or shown in the accompanying drawing is to be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
1. In combination, a golf bag, and a plate made of flexible, compressible material attachedto the upper open end of the bag and entirely covering said open end, and being formed with spaced, through openings to receive golf clubs. and a depending skirt on said plate receiving the upper end of said golf bag, said skirt having a split extending up from its lower edge, and a slot crossing the upper end of said split, a carrying strap on said golf bag passing through said slot, and means for fastening together the edges of said split.
2. An accessory for a golf bag comprising a fiat circular disc of sponge rubber, and a skirt of rubber vulcanized to the periphery of said disc and depending therefrom, said skirt having a split extending to the bottom edge thereof, and an enlarged opening at the upper end of said split, and means for attaching together the edges of said split.
HAROLD S. CALKINS.
