STOOL Filed April 8, 1939 2 Sheets-Sheet 1 Jew ZZZ {582792 M A itomeys Inventor Patented Apr. 16, 1940 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE STOOL Charles D. Goering, Hawesville, Ky. Application April 8, 1929, Serial No. 266,884

2 Claims. (or. 155-150) The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in stools for camping and other purposes and has for its primary object to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, a de- 5 vice of this character embodying a novel con struction, combination and arrangement of parts whereby the stool may be expeditiously folded when not in use to facilitate carrying or storing.

Other objects of the invention are to provide a stool of the aforementioned character which will be comparatively simple in construction, strong, durable, compact, light in weight, attractive in appearance and which may be manufactured at 'low cost. I l

All of the foregoing and still further objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent from a study of the following specification, taken in connection with the accompany ing drawings wherein like characters of refer ence designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, and wherein:

Figure 1 is an elevational view of a folding stool constructed in accordance with the present invention.

Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view through the device.

Figure 3 is a view in horizontal section, taken substantially on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2.

Figure 4 is a vertical sectional view, showing the stool folded.

Figure 5 is avertical sectional View, taken substantially on the line 5--5 of Fig. 2.

Figure 6 is a detail view in perspective of one of the spacing sleeves.

Referring now to the drawings in detail, it

will be seen that the embodiment of the invention which has been illustrated comprises duplicate pairs of supporting legs I which may be of any suitable material, preferably wood. The pairs of legs I are crossed and pivotally connected at an intermediate point, as at 2. Horizontal braces- 3 are provided on the lower end portions of the pairs of legs I.

The reference numeral 4 designates bars have ing one end pivotally connected by a metallic rod 5 extending therethrough. The outer ends of the bars 4 are pivotally connected to theupper end portions of the legs I, as at 6. Spacers I for the bars 4 are provided on the rod 5. Mounted transversely on the bars 4 are spaced, parallel slats 8.

The pairs of supporting legs I are further provided with inclined braces 9. Each brace 9 has one end portion secured to the lower portion of one leg of each pair of legs and its other end portion secured to the upper end portion of the other leg of each pair.

It is thought that the mannerin which the stool functions will be readily apparent from a consideration of the foregoing. To fold the stool it is only necessary to break the pivotally connected bars 4 upwardly and swing them into 5 parallelism with each other on the pivot'rod 5, thereby swinging the legs I to closed position where they parallel each other. To unfold or. open the stool this operation is, of course, reversed. The construction and arrangement is such that, when the stool isope-ned or unfolded, two of the bars 4 engage and come to rest on the upper portions of the braces 9. Also, the braces 9 engage each other at an intermediate point for arresting or limiting the unfolding of the stool. This is best seen in Fig. 20f the drawings.

It is believed that the many advantages of a folding stool constructed in accordance with the .presentinvention will be readily understood and although a preferred embodiment of the d'evice 20 is as illustrated and described, it is to be understood that changes in the details of construction and in the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to which will fall within the scope of the invention as claimed. 25

What is claimed is: 1. A folding stool comprising pairs of crossed, pivotally connected legs, pairs of bars having one end pivotally connected and their other ends pivotally connected to the legs, seat elements 30' mounted on said bars, and inclined braces mounted on the pairs of legs, said braces-having their upper end portions engageable beneath certain of the bars for supporting said certain bars in open position.

2. A folding stool of the character described comprising pairs of supporting legs crossed and pivotally connected at intermediate points, hori zontal braces extending between the lower portions of said pairs of legs, pairs of bars having '40 one end pivotally connected to the upper endportions of the legs, a rod extending through the other end portions of the pairs of bars for pivotally connecting said pairs of bars together,

spacers for the bars mounted on said rod, slats 45 I mounted transversely on the bars, and inclined braces. mounted on the pairs of legs, the upper end portions of the inclined braces being engageable beneath certain of the bars for supporting same in open position, said braces being engageable with each other at intermediate points for limiting the opening movement of the pairs of legs.
