Nov. 18, 1947. P. M. RESSINGER "SWING FOR CHILDREN AND THE LIKE Filed Sept. '27, 1945 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Patented Nov. 18, 1947 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2 Claims.
My invention relates to an improvement in childrens swings. One purpose is to provide a swing or Teeter-Tawter which is easily set up and knocked down and which is adapted for knock-down shipment.
Another purpose is the provision of such a structure in which a minimum number of parts are employed.
Another purpose is to provide a structure in which non-critical materials ar used.
Anothr purpose is to provide an eflicient, safe, solid swing structure.
Another purpose is to provide such a structure which can be readily adjusted to take pairs of children of different weight.
Other purposes will appear from time to time throughout the specification and claims.
I illustrate my invention more or less diagrammatically in the accompanying drawings, where- 1n Figure l is a plan view of the assembled structure;
Figure 2 is a side elevation of the assembly structure;
Figure 3 is a section on an enlarged scale along the line 3-3 of Figure 2;
Figures 4, 5, 6 and '7 are perspective Views of parts or pieces of the device.
Like parts are indicated by like characters throughout.
Referring to the drawings, I indicates any suitable supporting surface, 2 indicates a swing element including two vertical wood side members 3 and a connecting horizontal bottom member 4, located approximatelymidway of the ends of the side members 3. The member 4 is provided with a plurality of transversely extending bottom notches 5. The members 3 are connected at their ends by seat elements 6. Extending upwardly from the members 3 adjacent the seat elements but somewhat nearer the center of the board are vertical members I provided with cross bars 8 which the children may grasp with their hands. The members I may extend between the members 3 and be secured thereto by any suitable members.
It indicates generally a pivot piece shown as having upper and lower rounded surfaces. At each side of the pivot piece is the securing block II vertically grooved at opposite sides as at 2. It will be observed as in Figures 3 and 7, that the member I9 is nearer one end of the blocks it than it is to the other to permit vertical adjustment of the height of the member ID by merely reversing the blocks II. The blocks are received in vertical supports I 4; shown as having rounded ends I5 and upper slots I6 which interpenetrate with the grooves I2 of the blocks I I. The members I4 also have bottom slots II.
I8 generally indicates a bottom cross piece having notches I9 extending transversely therethrough at twopointsj In communication with but out of alignment with the notches I9 are grooves 20. 2|, 2| generally indicates bottom, supporting members having an upwardly enlarged central portion 22 provided with a top notch 23 and a side cut-away portion 24.
In assembling the device, the two members 2! are positioned in parallel as shown in Figure 1. The notches I9 of the cross member I8 slip into the notches 23 of the two members 2I. The vertical members I4 are positioned with the notches I'I interpenetrating with the notches 29 of the cross member I8. The lower portion of each member I4 also seats in the cut-away portions 24 of one of the members 2|. The member I0 is positioned in the notches I6 at the tops of the two vertical members I4. If the member ID is shown in the position of Figure 7, it is at its highest adjusted position. If it is turned upside down, it is in its low adjusted position. It is received equally well in either position by the notches I6.
When the base has been assembled, the tilting board structure generally indicated as 2 is positioned on it with one of the rounded notches 5 seated on the upper rounded surface of the member I B. If the children are of the same weight, the board can be centered as shown in Figures 1 and 2. If there is a difference in the weight of the children, then the heavier children can be given a shorter length of the board 2 by merely moving the board to the right, referring to the parts in the position in Figure 2, and engaging the member I I) with another of the notches 5.
Although there is shown an operative form of the device, it will be realized that many changes in the form, shape and arrangement of parts might be made without departing from the spirit of this invention, and it is wished that the showing be taken as, in a sense, diagrammatic.
I claim:
1. In a swing for children and the like, a pair of parallel horizontal ground engaging side base members, each said member having a recess, intermediate its ends, on the side facing the other member, and a notch in its upper edge, a transversely extending brace having notches in its lower edge adapted to receive the notches of said side members, with the lower edges of the side members and the cross member lying in generally the same horizontal plane, two upright members each including a lower portion notched to receive and extend about said cross member and formed to seat in the side recess of one of the side members, a cross bar having a vertically grooved head at each end, said upright members being notched at the top to receive said grooved heads and a tilting board adapted to be positioned upon said last-mentioned cross member, said tilting board having a transverse groove in its lower face formed to conform to the upper surface of said cross member, the opposed surfaces of board and cross member being rounded to permit ready tilting of the board.
2. In a swing for children and the like, a pair of parallel horizontal ground engaging side base members, each said member having a recess, intermediate its ends, on the side facing the other member, and a notch in its upper edge, a transversely extending brace having notches in its lower edge adapted to receive the notches of said side members, with the lower edges of the side members and the cross member lying in generally the same horizontal plane, two upright members each includin a lower portion notched to receive and extend about said cross member and formed to seat in the side recess of one of the side mem- REFERENCES CITED The following references are of record in the file of this patent:
