Theseposts I ereadaptedtodeteohablysnpport corresponding llllllht brackets 8. each oi which is formed ci two channels with their anses brought into edge abutting relation and welded to provide the box-like tubular structure shown.,
'1 in assembling or dismantling the device.
In the modined form ot construction shown in Figures. 4 to 6 inclusive,.the spacer section la which corresponds to section 2 oi the previous iigures. is made by bringing danses of two chan. nsl'sinto edge abutting relation and welding there together as showxnwhile the end sections la are made by spmng apart channels with their iianges to the outside and securing them in such spaced relation by pins la and spacing plates lo. so that the spacer section 2a is adapted to be iltted into the end sections instead of receiving same as in-the previous iigures.
In Figure 4, thel spacer section is provided with a plurality oi' notches i spaced apart in the ydirection ci the length-oi the spacer section and either one ot each of these notches may cooperate with the pin la to adapt the device to appropriately support hammocks oi diiIerent lengths.
Figureo showsthe manneroieesembling or dismantling these sections la and la with respect to one another. Esch end section in is provided with upstanding post 'i inclined as previously described and secured-between the channels oi the end section by welding or otherwise. To the outboard end ci the end section la is welded an upright hollow minder it and the toot 8a. which corresponds to the icot'e in the iprevious figures, is provided with a centrally located rigid stud i I adapted ,to extend upwardly through the hollow cylinder lli and provided in spaced relation above the upper end oi' the said cylinder with a notched head i2. To one (ace ot 'the foot sa, and directly below the space between the channels ot the end sectiony ic. there is welded a locking stop i3, as shown in Figures 6 and 6, and this stop normally projects into the space between seid channels to lock the foot in normal transverse relation to said channels. However, because ci the spacing between the upper end of the cylinder it and the head i2. either end section Ia can be liited at any time so that the locking stop i3 will clear the lower edge oi the end section and permit rotation ai the foot 6a into substantially parallel relation to the corresponding end sectionia, to thereby render the structure more compact for packing or storage. The toot 6a is shown as braced by a gusset bar Il, though this may he omitted with out departing -irom this invention.
'Ihestructure of Figures i, 5 and 6 supports thehammockinthesamemannerasinlvigures l to 3 inclusive. but has the advantage that it is adjustable as to length and may be more conveniently adapted for shipment or storage.
Both forms oi the present invention are of relatively light construction, easily handled end moved trom place to place, yet readily dismantled or assembled whendesired. The parts are ot strong, rugged construction, and will eectuelly support the hammock even when occupied by very heavy persons or more than one person.
The foregoing detailed description sets forth the invention in its preferred practical form, but the invention is to be understood as tully commensurate with the appended claims.
Having thus fully described the invention. what Iclaimasnewenddesiretosecurebylvetters Patent is:
LA hammock support comprising: a basecomposed oi end sections detaohshly secured to the opposite ends ol' an intermediate spacer section and harina upstandlng divergent posts and transverse reet to hold said bese in upright position. opstanding divergent brackets having detsohable telescoped relation with said posts and anchorages at the upper ends of said brackets ior attachment ot. the opposite ends ci' a hammock thereto. said feet having upright studs extending through bem-lass in the end sections to permit the ieet to be rotated into compact position relative to the end seclons, and means for normally locking said feet in transverse position.
2. A hammock support comprising: a base composed oi end sections detachably secured tc the opposite -ends ci an interposed spacer section and having intermediate their ends upstanding divergent posts and at their outboard ends an upright cylindrical bearing. a transverse toot positioned beneath the outboard end ci each end section and provided with a cennelly intending stud extendlng through the corresponding cylindrical bearing to mount the toot for rotation on a. vertical axis from a position transverse oi the end section to a position substantially parallel thereto and vice versa. means ior locking each toot in its transverse position to hold the corresponding end section in upright position, end a bracket having detachable telescoped relation with each upstandlng post and provided at its upper end with means for securing oneA end oi the hammock thereto.
3. A hammock support comprising: a base composed oi 'a plurality ot successively overlapping sections all o! which are formed from channel beams, one of each two overlapping sections having channel beams thereof arranged with their flanges in edge abutting relation and welded together to form a tubular structure and the other having its channel beams spaced apart s. distance substantially equal to the thickness oi such tubular structure to permit the tubular structure to lie between them, one of each two overlapping sections being provided at its upper and lower edges with stops spaced longitudinally of such section while the overlapping section is provided with et least one notch adapted to engage one oi saldstops while the end of said section engages the other stop to permit of assembly of the sections when in angular relation to one another and to lock said sections against longitudinal movement when in allncment with one another, a transverse foot at the outboard end of each terminal section to hold said sections in upright position, upwardly divergent posts each intermediate the ends of each terminal section and brackets detachably telescoped with respect to the said posts and provided at their upper ends with attaching means for the opposite ends of a hammock.
4. A hammock support comprising: end sections composed of a number of parallel bars across the upper edges and adjacent the inboard ends of which is a spacing pin and across the lower edges between the spacing pin and the outboard end of said bars is a spacing stop, said spacing pin and stop both serving to space the inboard ends of said bars apart, an upright cylindrical bearing welded to the outboard ends of each pair of said bars, a foot positioned between the outboard end of each pair of said bars and provided with an upright stud extending through said bearing and provided at its upper end with a head spaced above the upper end of said bearing to mount the corresponding foot for pivotal movement on a vertical axis with respect to each pair of bars, a locking stop carried by each foot and extending between the corresponding bars to normally lock the foot in transverse relation to said bars or to permit of withdrawal from between the bars when the stud is dropped suiiiciently for its head to engage the upper end of the bearing, upwardly diverging posts carried by each pair of bars, a bracket having detachably telescoped relation to each of said posts and provided at its upper ends with hammock attaching means, and a spacing section for spacing said end sections apart, the opposite ends of said spacer section being adapted to t between the bars of the end sec-tions and provided at spaced apart distances along its upper edge and at each end thereof with notches adapted to selectively engage the spacing pin of the corresponding end section.
5. A hammock support comprising: two end sections provided with feet and upright brackets for attachment to a hammock in combination with an intermediate spacer section, each end section having longitudinally and vertically spaced apart stops and each end of the spacer section having notches along its upper edge attached to be selectively engaged with one of such stops of the corresponding end sections while its lower edge engages with the other stop of such end section when the end section and spacer section are in alinement with one another.
6. A hammock support comprising: an intermediate spacer section provided with vertically and longitudinally spaced apart stops at each end thereof, and a pair of end sections each of which is provided at its upper edge with at least one notch adapted, when in overlapping alined relation with the corresponding end of the spacer sections. to engage with the corresponding upper stop of the spacer section while the inboard end of such end section engages with the corresponding lower stop, and an upright bracket carried REFERENCES CITED The following references are of record in the file of this patent:
