Claims.
This invention relates to chests and similar receptacles and. is particularly directed to chest structures including an assembly of trays.
The invention is particularly adapted to the provision of trays in moth-proof chests, for eX- ample, chests constructed of or lined With cedar wood or other materials giving off insecticidal or insect-repellent odors or vapors.
A principal object of the invention is to provide a chest having a plurality of trays so mounted as to be positioned in substantially side-by-side horizontal alignment in the upper part of a chest when the lid thereof is closed and to be moved to a substantially superposed spaced position above and toward the back of the chest when the lid thereof is raised.
A further object is toprovide a` chest having a plurality of trays automatically movable into and out of the chest by the raising and lowering of the lid.
The invention comp-rises a chest or similar article having a body and a lid hinged thereto and a plurality of tray members carried at least in said part by the lid and connecting means causing said trays to be positioned in substantially side-by-side horizontal alignment when the lid is in closed position and to be moved to substantially superposed spaced position adjacent said lid upon raising the lid. i
The invention will be more fully described for the purpose of illustration with reference to the accompanying drawings which show a representative embodiment of the invention.
In the drawings:
Fig. 1 is a perspective View of a chest embodying the invention with the lid in raised position;
Fig. 2 is an end View in partial section of the chest shown in Fig. l, with the lid in closed position, the raised position of the chest being indicated in dotted lines.;
Fig. 3 is a fragmentary front View in partial section of the chest with the lid in raised position;
Fig. l is a fragmentary View of a detail of the invention; and Fig. 5 shows a modified form of the invention.
In the embodiment shown in Figs. l to 4 of the drawings a chest body I I is provided with a lid I2 hinged to the body along the rear top edge thereof. A tray I3, substantially less in width than the width of the chest from front to rear, is pivotally attached to the lid at the rear thereof by hinges Ill. A second tray I5, not greater in width than the difference between the width of the first tray and the Width of the chest from front to rear, is pivotally mounted on brackets (Cl. G-10) IB which are' attached to the lid at such point that the rear of the second tray is at least slightly spaced from the front of the first tray when the lid is in horizontal position with the trays suspendedl parallel to the lid and in the same hori- 5 zontal plane as shown particularly in Fig. 2.
A link member II is. pivotally connected at one end to the body Il and at the other end to tray I3 at such point that it maintains the tray I3 in a horizontal position as the lid I2 is raised and 10 the tray pivots about the hinge line of hinges I4.
A second link member I8 is pivotally connected at one end to tray I3 at the pivot point of link member I'I and at the other end to tray I5 at such point that tray I5 is likewise maintained in 15 a substantially horizontal position as the lid I2 is raised and the tray pivots about the pivot points of brackets I6.
It will thus be seen that upon closing the lid the trays I3 and I5 Will be caused to assume a 20 substantially side-by-side horizontal position in the upper portion of the chest adjacent the lid and that upon raising the lid the trays will be maintained in a horizontal position adjacent the lid, being moved to a spaced superposed position above and to the rear of the chest body when the lid is in approximately vertical position.
When the overall depth of the trays is substantially the same as the internal depth of the lid, as shown in the drawings, the trays with their contained articles are positioned wholly within the lid when the lid is in closed position. It is possible, however, to provide trays of either greater or less depth than the depth of the lid.
When, the lid is in raised position, the trays are held in such a position that their contents are easily accessible and at the same time the interior of the chest body is readily accessible.
In the embodiment shown in Fig. 5 the invention is applied to a chest having a flat lid. In this figure the open position of the lid and trays is shown in full lines and the closed position is indicated by dotted lines. The chest body 2| is provided with a flat lid 22 hinged to the body along the rear top edge. Tray 23 is pivotally attached to the lid at I4 and tray 25 is pivotally attached to the lid at 26.
Link member 21 is pivotally connected to the body 2l at one end and to tray 23 at the other, 50 while link member 25 is connected to tray 23 at one end at the point of connection of link 21 and at the other end is connected to tray 24. Link members 29 and Sil assist in supporting the trays and in steadying the assembly.
I claim:-
1. A chest comprising a body, a lid pivotally connected thereto, a plurality of trays pivotally connected directly to the lid along parallel pivotal lines spaced from each other and substantially parallel to the pivotal axis of the lid and link members connecting the traysto the body and maintaining the trays adjacent said lid and in substantially level horizontal position in all positions of the lid.
2. A chest comprising a body, a lid pivotally connected thereto, a tray pivctally connected directly to the rearward portion of the lid and a link member connecting the tray to the body and maintaining the tray in substantially level horizontal position in all positions of the lid, and a second tray pivotally connected directly to the lid forward of said first tray and a link member connecting said second tray to said rst tray and maintaining said second tray in substantially level horizontal position in all positions of the lid.
3. A chest comprising a body, a lid pivot-ally connected thereto, a plurality of trays having a total width not exceeding the Width of the interior of the chest from front to rear, each of said trays being pivotally connected to the lid along parallel pivotal lines spaced from each other and substantially parallel to the pivotal axis of the lid and link members connecting said trays to the body and maintaining the trays adjacent said lid and in substantially level horizontal position in all positions of the lid.
4. A chest comprising a body, a lid pivotally connected thereto, a tray having a Width substantially less than the width of the interior of the chest from front to rear pivotally connected directly to the rearward portion of the lid and a link member connecting said tray to the body and maintaining the tray in substantially level horizontal position in all positions of the lid, and a second tray having a width not greater than the difference between the Width of said rst tray and the Width of the interior of the chest from front to rear pivotally connected directly to the lid forward of said rst tray and a link member connecting said second tray to said rst tray and maintaining said second tray in substantially level horizontal position in all posi tions of the lid.
5. A chest comprising a body, a lid pivotally connected to said body, a plurality of trays pivotally connected directly to said lid along parallel pivotal lines spaced from each other and substantially parallel to the pivotal axis of the lid and link members connecting said trays to the body and maintaining said trays in substantially level horizontal position, whereby, upon raising the lid about its pivot line', the trays will be moved to substantially superposed spaced positions above and to the rear of said body.
