Patented Mar. 11, 1941 UNITED STATES` BABY CRIB Max Klopfer,

" Appuationrne 2s, 193s, serial No. 280,744

l 4Claims.

This invention relates to baby cribs, and more particularly to cribs that are foldable to provide portability and which are formed of wood, metal or any other suitable material. This application is a continuation in part of ourl application, Ser. No. 273,158, flied May 12, 1939.

Among the features of the invention are:

A crib made up of sections comprising vertical corner posts, cross-bars at the top and at the bottom connecting said posts, and vertical posts mounted on the cross-bars to provide barriers against a baby crawling through betweenthem; having at cross-pieces supportable in a plurality of vertical positions at opposite ends so that these at cross-pieces can be placed in dierent vertical positions to provide a bed, floor, seats, or tables; having four .or more' at cross-pieces; having iiat cross-pieces formed in symmetrical pairs; having means on the cross-pieces for securing the side sections in exact spaced-apart relationship; having means on the cross-pieces for holding the side sections against outward displacement; having two symmetrical parts, each part comprising an end section and two side sections, and means for locking the open ends of the parts together to form a rectangular pen; each part having hinges between eachend and the adjacent side sections,

land so constructed that the three sections can be with the cross-pieces easily insertable'in and removable from their supports; having the end cross-pieces notched at the corners and also lthe intermediate cross-pieces notched at the corners so that the flat cross-pieces can entirely cover the cross-sectional space within the crib to provide a floor or to provide a bed in either of which the cross-pieces are in the same plane, and to provide a table formed of the two central cross-pieces with two cross-piece seats, one near .each end of the pen and set in a lower plane. 'I'he table may be divided to form two chairs with a table in front of each seat. A mattress may beused for the bed which is divisible into two equal parts so that when the-pen is separated, the mattress may be separated to provide cushions for each of two chairs, each of which has two cross-pieces in the same plane.

Fig. 5 isl a view taken on the line 5-5 of Fig. 2,

and looking in the direction of the arrows.

Fig. 6 is a perspective view showing the device in theA folded portable position.

A vertical post I0 and a vertical post II are connected by a horizontal cross-bar I2 at the top and a horizontal cross-bar I3 vat the bottom. A vertical bar I4, a vertical bar I5. a vertical intermediate post I6, and a vertical bar I1 are mounted at the top in the cross-bar I2 and at the bottom in the cross-bar I3 and are so spaced from each other and from the vertical end posts, that a baby Acan not pass thru theside as formed. This side section is connected by hinges 81 with a corner post I8 which is extended in cross-section in a rectangle about twice the size of the post I I in cross-section, The left end has a vertical post I9 at the opposite corner, and a cross-bar 20 at the top, and a cross-bar 2I at the bottom connect theV vertical posts IB-and I9. Vertical bars 22, 23, 24, 25,. and 26 are mounted at the top in the crossbar 20 and at the bottom in the cross-bar 2 I, and are so spaced from each other and the end posts, that ababy cannot pass thru. A vertical post 21 is connected by hinges 23 with the vertical post I9 and is connected withv the vertical post 29 by means of a cross-bar 30 atthe top and a cross-bar 3| at the bottom. Vertical bars 32, 33, a vertical intermediate post 34, and vertical bars 35, and 36 are connected at the top with the cross-bar 30 and at the bottom with the cross-bar 3|. The spacing of these vertical bars and vertical posts is such that a baby can not pass thru. vA flat cross-piece 31 and a flat cross-piece 38 support a cushion 39 thereon and substantially ll .the entire area of the part formed by the end piece and the two adon the front edge of the iiat cross-piece 31 is a transversely extending pin 40 which engages in recesses 42 formed in the inner wall of notches 4I formed in thevertical posts I0 and 29. These pins 40 and recesses 42 prevent the sides from spreading apart when the part above described is used as a chair or separably. Notches 4I are also jacent sides in the open position. At either side formed symmetrically on the side wall of the posts Il and 21 so there are a plurality of supports formed for supporting the nat cross-pieces 31 and 38 which cooperate with supports 43 and 45 formed on the intermediate posts I6 and 34 in the same plane as-the notches in the posts I8, II, 21, and 29. The corners of the cross-pieces 31 and, 38 have right-angled cornered cuts therein for tting on the posts I8, |61, Il, 21, 34 and 29 so that their ends directly engage the vertical bars I4, I5, I1, 32, 33, 35, and 36 and when assembled the ilat pieces 31 and 38 make one unitary suppost I8 and cross-bars 60 and 6I are similar to the cross-bars 20 and 2l at the opposite end and mount vertical bars 62, 63, 64, 65, and 66 which are similar'to the vertical bars 22, 23, 24, 25, and 26. The cross-bars 68 and 6I connect the post 58 with the post 59. A vertical post 61 is similar to the post 21 and is hinged at B8 to the post 59. A post 69 is similar to the post 29 and is connected with the post 61 by cross-bar-s 10 and 1I which are similar to the cross-bars 38 and 3l. Vertical bars 12, 13, the intermediate vertical post 14, and vertical bars 15 and 16 are mounted in the cross-bars 18 and 1I and are similar to the vertical bars 32, 33, the vertical side member 34, and the vertical bars 35 and 36. The last-described side section, when folded, over on the hinge 68, lies parallel with the end section, as does the vertical side section defined by the `posts 21 and 29 which,

' turned on its'hinges 28, lies adjacent to the opposite end When the side section having posts 50 and 5I is folded on its hinges 91 it lies over the side section formed by posts 61` and 69 to form three parallel sections which are at and easily portable. Similarly when the side formed by the vertical posts I0 and Il is folded over the side formed by the posts 21 and 29, three parallel sections make up the other part so that the'entire crib comprises these two flat folded sections which may be placed on top of each other, with the ilat cross-pieces 31, 38, 11, and 18 interposed between, so that all can be tied up in one portable bundle. Pins 40 can be mounted on the front edge of cross-piece 11 similar to the pins 48 and may enter recesses 42 formed in the notches 4I cut on the inside wall of the posts 50 and 69 to prevent them from spreading apart when the cross-piece 11 is in place in the notches 4| and 45. The cross-pieces 11`and 18 cover the entire part formed by the right side and together with the cross-pieces 31 and 38 entirely cover the inside area of the pen so that they provide a. comor complete support for the plete floor for the pen 31,38, 11, and 18 are easily bed. 'I'he cross-pieces swung into or out of position on an axial line thru their opposite edges by means of curved cutaways 44 and 46 over the seats of the notches 43 and 45. The posts 29 and 50 may have suitable inter-engaging locking members 48 and 49 and the dowel 80, as well as the posts I0 and 69, so that the two similar parts may be locked together on both sides, at the center. It is clear that the The post 5I is mounted bymeans of hingesj91 on the post 58. which is similar to the/y cross-pieces can be raised or lowered and set in any one of a set of notches 4I, 43 and 46 in the s ame horizontal plane or the cross-piece 31 may bev set at a higher position and the crosspiece 38 in alower position to form a table with a lseat at therear and at the end of the pen. Similarly the cross-piece" may be set in a higher position and the cross-piece 18 may be set in a lower position to form a similar combined table or seat. It is also obvious that the two similar parts of the crib may be divided at the center, byunlockinglthe inter-engaging members 48 and 49, to form two cushion chairs, which can be set in any desired position.
