Patented Mar. 20, 1945 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE FOLDING TARGET HOLDER Clarance N orberg, Allerton, Iowa Application April 30, 1942, Serial No. 441,172

3 Claims.

This invention relates to a target holder and it aims to provide a novel'means whereby the holder or support for a target is foldable or collapsible in order to occupy minimum space, especially in moving the same from place to place.

It is also aimed to provide a construction wherein the target may be disposed at any desired elevation, angle or other position.

The more specific objects and advantages will become apparent from a consideration of the description following taken in connection with accompanying drawing illustrating an operative embodiment.

In said drawing:

Figure 1 is a view in elevation showing the improved structure;

Figure 2 is a horizontal section taken on the plane of line 2- 2 of Figure 1;

Figure 3 is a detail particularly showing the support of the frame by theupper bracket;

Figure 4 is a detail particularly showing the support of the frame by the lower bracket or guide sleeve; 7

Figure 5 is a detail of the connection of the frame sections, and

Figure 6 is a detail looking from the right of Figure 5 to show the hook. I

Referring specifically to the drawing wherein like reference characters designate like or similar parts, In represents a standard or upright rod or post which is detachably screwed at H to a supporting base 12, having detachable radiating feet l3 equipped with depending anchors M, which may be thrust into the ground. as shown, to securely anchor the structure against the action of the wind. While the device is thus adapted for outdoor use, it may nevertheless be advantageously used indoors as well.

A target mounting frame is provided at 15, preferably being made of wood and consisting of two U-shaped sections I6 joined by two hinges at [1, whereby the sections when detached from the standard may be folded upon each other to facilitate their being packed or carried in a suitcase or the like. In the unfolded or extended position, the sections 16 are held against folding One frame section 16 carries a bracket 2! and detachably secured thereto by bolts 22 while the other section 16 carries a bracket or sleeve 23 detachably secured to it by bolts 24. It will be seen that the brackets 2| and 23 have openings through which the standard l0 detachably passes. It will be'noted that said bolts 24 are disposed so that their paths of removal are blocked by the support which prevents accidental removal of the bolts. A screw 25 is threaded to the bracket or sleeve 23 and is operable to bind against the standard to fasten the frame l5 at any desired elevation and also at any desired angle about the axis of the standard. Thus the structure is capable of use to position the target in accordance with the wishes of a particular gunner or marksman and the structure is also adapted for rapid disassembly or assembly in being set up, stored or moved from place to place.

Various changes may be resorted to provided they fall within the spirit and scope of the invention as hereinafter defined by the appended.

a. target, said frame being in sections, and means folda'bly connecting the sections together brackets on the sections through which a support passes to hold the sections unfolded in coplanar condition, and means to secure one of the brackets to the support, bolts detachably connecting the brackets to the frame sections, said bolts being disposed with their heads realtively close to said support so that their paths of removal are blocked by the support to prevent accidental removal of the bolts. 3. In combination, a bracket having an opening therethrough, a support in said opening, and bolt means to attach an article to the bracket, said bolt means extending through the wall of the bracket with the head at said opening relatively close to said support and with the shank extending outwardly beyond the wall, said bolt means thereby being anchored against removal from the bracket.
