Oct. 22, 1940.- A. L. FLAHA-RTY CUSHION COVER FOR SEAT BOXES OF RAILWAY LOCOMOTIVES Filed Nov. 4, 1939 Patented Oct. 22, 1940 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE CUSHION COVER FOR SEAT BOXES 0F RAIL- WAY LOCOMOTIVES Arthur L. Flaharty, Winslow, Arlz. Application November 4, 1939, Serial No. 302,929

2 Claims.

of the seat-box thereby retaining the cover in place upon the seat-box.

A further object of the invention is to provide a cushion cover having straps which are adapted to be extended'over one edge of the cushion cover and be connected, providing a handle at such edge,for the convenient carrying of the cushion cover.

A further object of the invention is to provide a cushion cover of the abovementioned character which will receive and protect a cushion, which may be inflated or formed of compressible and expansible material, such as sponge rubber or the like, and will permit of ready access to the .cushion for its removal, when desired.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent during the course of the following description.

In the accompanying drawing forming a part of this application and in which like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the same,

Figure 1 is a side elevation of a seat-box of a railway locomotive, showing my cushion cover applied thereto,

Figure 2 is a horizontal section taken on line 22 of Figure 1,

Figure 3 is a plan view of the cushion cover,

' showing the straps separated, for the purpose of illustration,

Figure 4 is a similar view showing the straps connected for forming a handle,

Figure 5 is a front end elevation of the cushion cover,

Figure 6 is a detailed transverse section through the cover, parts broken away, and,

Figure 7 is a plan view of a modified form of cushion cover embodying the invention.

In the drawing, wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown a preferred embodiment of my invention, a cushion cover is shown comprising a top Ill and bottom H, formed of suitably stout flexible material, such as leather, artificial leather, oilcloth or the like. The top and bottom are rectangular and arranged between the top and bottom are edge sections 12, secured to the top and bottom by lines of stitching l3. A tape or binder I4 is preferably sewed over the meeting edges of the top and bottom and edge sections I2, by the lines of stitching l3. Arranged upon one side edge section I2 is an inner short flexible strap I 5, formed of leather or the like. This strap extends rearwardly beyondthe cushion cover. Arranged upon the forward end 5 of the short strap is an outer long flexible. strap 16. The forward ends of the straps l5 and I6 overlap in contacting relation and are secured to the edge section 12 by rivets H or the like. The short strap l5 carries rings l1 and I8 secured thereto and spaced longitudinally of the same and these rings are arranged upon the outer side of the short strap. The long strap I6 is provided at its free end with a snap hook I 9,

facing inwardly. Arranged upon the opposite 15 side edge section I2 is an inner long flexible strap 20, formed of leather or the like. Arranged upon the strap 20 is an outer short flexible strap 2|, formed of leather or the like, and the straps 20 and 2| are secured to the by rivets 22 or the like. The short strap 2| has rings 23 suitably secured thereto and these rings are longitudinally spaced upon the short strap and are arranged upon the outer side thereof.

At its free end, the long strap 20 has a snap hook 26 24, facing inwardly.

The forward edge section i2 is provided with a longitudinal slit, the edges of which are deizzachably connected by means of a sliding fastener slit is arranged upon the forward edge section I 2, opposite the rear edge section l2, adjacent to where the straps are secured. The cover receives a cushion 26, which may be a pneumatic inflated cushion or a compressible and expansible cushion formed of sponge rubber or any other suitable material.

In the use of this form of the invention, the cover containing the cushion is placed upon the seat-box 21 in the railway locomotive cab. This seat-box has a back 28, supported by uprights 29. The long strap I6 is passed about the adjacent upright and its snap hook I9 is engaged within either ring II or l8 of the short strap. In a similar manner the long strap about its adjacent upright 29 and the'hook 24 is engaged within either ring 23. The long strap may be passed once or a number of times about the uprights 29, as may be found'advantageous.

When the long and short straps are connected 5 they form closed loops encircling the uprights 29 and serve to retain the seat cover in place upon the seat-box.

The seat cover may be readily separated from the seat-box by disconnecting the long and short 55 suitably 10 side edge section l2 :0

of any well known or preferred type. This 30 20 is passed straps. When this is done, the inner .long strap 20 has its snap hook 24 engaged within either ring H or l8, while the outer long strap It has its snap hook l9 engaged within either ring 23 of the outer short strap 2|. When the long and short straps are thus connected they lie in superposed relation in a compact manner and both long .straps may be readily grasped in the hand and serve as a handle for carrying the cushion cover.

In Figure '7, I have shown a slightly modified form of the invention. In this figure, the inner short strap i5 is provided with inwardly facing resilient studs 30, to enter outwardly facing sockets 3| carried by the outer long strap 20. The outer short strap 2| has outwardly facing resilient studs 32 to enter inwardly facing sockets 33 formed upon the outer long strap IS. The studs 30 of the inner short strap i5 and the sockets 33 of the outer long strap i6 constitute snap fasteners to connect these straps when the long strap I6 is passed about the upright 29. The studs 32 of the outer short strap 2| and the sockets 3| of the inner long strap 20 constitute snap fasteners to connect these straps when the long strap 2|] is passed about the upright 29. When the seat cover is removed from the seat box, the inner long strap 20 is arranged next to the edge section of the seat cover and the inner short strap i5 is passed over the end of the strap 20 and the studs 30 enter the sockets 3|. The outer short strap 2| is arranged next to the inner long strap 29 and the outer long strap i6 passes,

over straps 20 and 2| and the sockets 33 receive the studs 32. The connected straps are therefore arranged in superposed relation, in a compact manner and these assembled straps may be conveniently grasped in the hand and serve as a handle for carrying the cushion cover. By providing a plurality of studs and sockets, the straps may be longitudinally adjustably connected.

It is to be understood that the forms of my invention herewith shown and described are to be taken as preferred examples of the same and that various changes in the shape, size, and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of my invention or the scope of the subjoined claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim is:
