SUPPORT FOR HAMMO CKS 2 Sheets-Sheet 1 Filed June 26, 1946 a Peru 2' Fit/97770170 Mam Oct. '5, 1948. P. RICHMOND 2,450,689

SUPPORT FOR HAMMOCKS 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Filed June 26, 1946 Inventor Patented Oct. 5, 1948 NITED -STATES PTENT OFFICE 2,450,689 SUPPORT FOR HAMMOCKS Paul Richmond, Pontiac, Mich. Application June 26, 1946, Serial No. 679, 13! 1 Claim. (01. 5-129) My invention relates to improvements in supports for hammocks, the primary object in view being to provide a simply constructed, inexpensive, strong device from which a hammock may be slung and which is adapted to be easily moved from one location to another, sled fashion, as occasion may require, formed of'a minimum number of sections which can be readily disassembled and packed compactly, and as quickly assembled when it is desired to use the device.

Other and subordinate objects, also compre hended by my invention, together with the precise nature of my improvements and the manifold advantages thereof, will be readily understood when the succeeding description and claim are read with reference to the drawings accompanying and forming part of this specification.

In said drawings:

Figure 1 is a view in plan of my improved support in the preferred embodiment thereof,

Figure 2 is a view in side elevation, with the hammock indicated in dotted lines,

Figure 3 is a fragmentary view in longitudinal section taken on the line 3--3 of Figure 1 and drawn to a larger scale,

Figure 4 is a fragmentary view in longitudinal section taken on the line 4-4 of Figure 5,

Figure 5 is a view in longitudinal section taken on the line 5-4: of Figure 1,

Figure 6 is a view in transverse section taken on the line 6-6 of Figure 4.

Referring to the drawings by numerals, my improved hammock support, as shown, has the form of a skeleton frame comprising a pair of elongated like side members I, 2 which are preferably formed of pipe with straight intermediate ground engaging sections 3 and terminal risers 4 inclining from the sections 3 at an obtuse angle and to a height sufiicient to support the usual hammock, indicated in dotted lines at A in Figure 2, with the requisite clearance between the hammock and the ground. The risers 4 are formed with studlike terminals 5 inclining therefrom at an obtuse angle such that when fastened together sid by side in pairs at the ends of the frame, the risers 4 will converge upwardly in pairs and outwardly while the intermediate portions are spaced apart laterally and parallel a distance sufficient to stabilize the frame.

A pair of keepers are provided for securing the terminals together, in pairs, and which take the form of tubular sockets having flatened lower ends, as at 1, adapted to telescope downwardly over the pairs of terminals 5 with a slip fit, and upper ends 8 longitudinally slotted, as at 9, to form upstanding tongues thereon, as at H], the tongues l0 being adapted to face one another when the keepers 6 are in place. A pair of caps H are provided for the upper ends 8 of the keepers 6 to close said ends.

The side members I, Z are divided in the transverse centers of the intermediate ground engaging sections 3 so that each comprises a pair of sections l2, l3, and said sections l2, [3 are connected together by the usual unions l4, l5 threaded thereon as best shownin Figure 3.

In slinging a hammock in the described support, the usual end rings 16 of the hammock A are placed over the tongues l0 and in the slots 9, as best shown in Figures 4 and 6, with the caps ll removed from the keepers 6. The caps ii are then replaced to prevent rain from enter ing the keepers 6 and the members I, 2. As will bg.malllfeSll, because of the described shape of the side members I, 2, the support may be readily shoved along the ground, or a floor, sled fashion, to locate the same as desired. To disassemble the parts of the support,it is merely necessary to pull the keepers 6 off the terminals 5 and then unscrew the unions M, 15. As will be obvious, when the support is thus disassembled, the sections l2, l3, keepers 0 and caps ll may be easily arranged in a compactbundle for porting or storing.

The foregoing will, it is believed, suffice to impart a clear understanding of my invention without further explanation.

Manifestly, the invention, as described, is susceptible of modification as regards details of construction and arrangement of parts, without departing from the inventive concept, and right is herein reserved to such modifications as fall within the scope of the appended claim.

What I claim is:

A hammock support comprising a frame including a pair of elongated side members having intermediate straight ground engaging portions and terminal risers inclining upwardly therefrom at an obtuse angle and provided with obtuse angled terminals adapted to be secured together side by side in pairs, and removable slip on keepers for securing said pairs of terminals together comprising tubular sockets fitting at one end over said pairs of terminals and having the other ends thereof longitudinally slotted to form tongues for attaching the hammock thereto.

PAUL RICHMOND.
