DETACHABLE FURNI TUBE LEG Filed sept. 12, 194e 2 sheets-sheet 2 I 11 z'entor By @Maa/22 Patented Oct. 18, 1949 NITED STATES ATN? OFFICE 3 Claims.
The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in detachable legs for furniture and more particularly to a device of this character for supporting a bed spring in a position without necessitating the use of a head or foot board, such as is usually provided in the construction of a bed.
A further object of the invention is to provide detachable legs for a bed spring by means of which the spring may be supported in a normal position for use as a bed and in which the legs may be easily detached for conveniently storing the bed spring, when not in use.
Another object of the invention is to provide a detachable leg for bed springs adapted for supporting various types of bed springs in position for use thereof as a bed.
An additional object is to provide a detachable wooden leg for bed springs of simple and practical construction, which may be easily and quickly secured in position to a bed spring and which may be used upon bed springs of various sizes.
Other obiects and advantages reside in the details of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawings forming part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which- Figure 1 is a -perspective View showing the legs in position for supporting a bed spring to provide a bed.
Figure 2 is an enlarged end view of one of the detachable legs.
Figure 3 is a side elevational view thereof. and
Figure 4 is a side elevational view showing the legs in position on a coil spring.
Referring now to the drawings in detail Wherein for the purpose of illustration I have disclosed a preferred embodiment of the invention the numeral 5 designates a wooden leg with sides and l sloping slightly toward the bottom. A vertical slot or groove 8 is formed in the top of the leg parallel to and slightly toward the outer side of said leg and extends throughout the entire width of the leg. The top of the leg at its inner edge and on the inner side of the slot 6 is cut away to a reduced height as shown at 9 while the top of the leg at the outer side of the slot 8 l is of slightly increased height as shown at Ill.
The surface of the top 9 slopes slightly downwardly towards the vertical groove as shown at I3 so that the vertical iiange of an angle iron frame il oi a bed spring may recess in the vertical groove l and with the horizontal flange of the frame resting on the sloping top i3.
A pair of brackets Hl and l5 are secured to the inner and outer sides of the leg 5 by a bolt l 6 and nut il, the nut being positioned at the inside of the leg while the roundhead 20 of the bolt is positioned at the outside of the leg to prevent any protruding ends on the bolt which might have a harmful effect on the user.
The brackets Hl and l5 are bent horizontally inwardly at the top of the leg to overlie the horizontal. flange of the'angle iron spring frame il and the upper ends of the brackets project upwardly in spaced parallel relation with respect to each other at 2l and are connected together by means of a bolt and nut 25.
One of the legs 5 is secured in position at each corner of the spring Il, and if desired, one or more of the legs may also be secured to the sides of the spring intermediate the ends thereof.
By attaching the legs in position to the angle iron frame of the spring, the spring will be supported in a normal position for use as a bed, and when desired, the legs may be easily and quickly detached from the spring for conveniently storing the same.
The detachable legs may be used to support either a wire bed spring as shown in Figure l of the drawings, or for supporting a coil bed spring such as indicated at 22 in Figure 4.
In view of the foregoing description taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings it is believed that a clear understanding of the construction, operation and advantages of the device will be quite apparent to those skilled in this art. A more detailed description is accordingly deemed unnecessary.
It is to be understood, however, that even though there is herein shown and described a preferred embodiment of the invention the same is susceptible to certain changes fully comprehended by the spirit of the invention as herein described and the scope of the appended claims.
I claim:
1. A detachable leg having a vertical groove in its upper end adapted to receive the vertical flange of an angle iron frame member for supporting the same on the leg, clamping brackets secured to the leg, lsaid brackets including horizontal portions adapted to be positioned over the horizontal flange of the frame member and Vertical portions extending from said horizontal portions and receiving securing means for retaining said leg in position.
2. A detachable leg having a vertical groove in its upper end adapted to receive the Vertical flange of an angle iron frame member for supporting the same on the-leg, the top of the leg including a reduced height portion to receive the horizontal flange of the frame member, clamping brackets secured to the leg, said brackets including horizontal portions adapted to be positioned over the horizontal flange of the frame member and Vertical portions extending from said horizontal portions and receiving securing means for retaining said leg in position.
3. The combination of claim 2 wherein said reduced height portion slopes downwardly towards the Vertical groove.
