Application January 3, 1945, Serial No. 571,139
12 Claims. 1 This invention relates to chairs, and more particularly to chairs havingvertically adjustable seats.
One object of the present invention is to provide a chair having a seat supported therein in a novel manner whereby it may be quickly and easily l0cated and supported at various selected levels.
Another object of the invention is to provide a high chair constructed in a novel manner -whereby it may be readily adjusted to fit the needs of a growing child, or for children of various heights.
A further object is to provide a childs high chair having novel means for locking the seat when the same is read in connection with the" accompanying drawings. It is to be expressly understood, however, that the drawings are for the purpose of illustration only, and are not intended as a definition of the limits ofthe in-,,.
vention, reference for this latter purpose being" had primarily to the appended claims.
In the drawings, wherein like reference characters refer to like parts throughout the several Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the chair shown in Fig. 1; i
Secured to the upper ends of rear legs H, as by screws 15, is a back rest extending upwardly beyond said legs and beyond the tops of front legs Ill, and disposed at the same angle of rearward inclination as the latter. Secured in any suitable manner to the tops of front legs II) are arm rests ll extending rearwardly from said legs and having their opposite ends engaged in grooves it formed in back rest I6. Arm rests I! are secured to back rest IE, as by gluing, or in any other suitable manner, and provide additional supports for said back rest.
The front legs and the back rest 16 jointly support a seat l9 which is mounted thereon in a novel manner whereby said seat may be quickly and easily located at various selected levels to enable seating of the occupant at a comfortable, convenient or desired level. As shown more particularly in Figs. 1 to 4, seat l9 Wholly occupies the space between front legs l0, and is provided at its rear end with a plurality of transversely spaced and aligned dowel pins 20, four being shown, pressed and glued therein. Pins 2i) are adapted to be received in any one set of a plurality of vertically spaced sets of transversely aligned horizontal openings 2| formed in back rest it. Secured to underside of seat I 9, as by screws 22, adjacent the front and at opposite 'Fig. 3 is a detail top plan view of the seat shown in Figs. 1 and 2;
Fig. 4 is an enlarged horizontal section taken substantially on the line 4-4 of Fig. 2,looking in the direction of the arrows;
Fig. 5 is an enlarged fragmentary vertical sec,,
-tion taken substantially on the line 5-5 of Fig.
tion of the novel chair contemplated by the present invention, comprises a pair of transfversely spaced rearwardly inclined front legs l0,
and a pair of transversely spaced rear legs I I inclined toward each other and toward said front Legs ill and I l are connected together by a plurality of vertically spaced transverse rungs l2 and I3, respectively, and by a plurality of vertically spaced longitudinally extending rungs [4, said rungsbeing secured to said legs, as by gluing or in any other suit- As shown in Figs. 1 and 2, the
for purposes to be presently described.
sides thereof are two plate-like members 23 (Figs. 3 to 6) which project laterally beyond the sides of said seat. Members 23 are adapted to be engaged in one of a series of vertically spaced hori zontal grooves 24 formed in the inner sides of the front legs it. Grooves 24 correspond in number and in relative spacing to the number and spacing of the sets of openings 2| in back rest It, and extend through the entire width of said legs.
With the construction thus far described, seat is is initially installed by sliding it endwise rearwardly between the front legs it) from the front side of the chair, and is supported thereon by engaging pins 2!] in a set of openings 2| in back rest 15, and by engaging plate members 23 in a corresponding pair of grooves 24 in front legs Hi. When it is desired to adjust seat I 9 to a desired level, said seat is moved forwardly a distance suflicient to disengage pins 20 and plate members 23 from openings 2! and grooves 24, respectively. Thereupon seat 19 may be raised or lowered, as the case may be, to the desired level, and supported at said level by again moving said seat rearwardly and reengaging pins 2?! and plate members 23 in the selected set of openings 2! and corresponding grooves 24, respectively. In the illustrated embodiment of the invention, there are five sets of openings 2| in back rest 15, and five corresponding grooves 24in each front leg Hi. It will be understood that the number 1 There. is. thus provideda chair which, through :':do-Wel pins. tmembersmay be d-ispensed'with, and .rigidseat, supporting and locking members ma be :sub" stiti ted for the springwire members. For-.a
amaaazs 3 of sets of openings 2!, and the number of groove 24, as well as the number of dowel pins 20, may be variedgas desired.
NoveLme-ans are provided forwlockingiseat t9 in adjusted positions to prevent accidental endwise displacement of the same from the chair, said means also serving to support the seat in all its positions of adjustment. As herein shown, said. seat locking and supportingmeans preferably comprise two membersiiii (-Figs'.3 to-'6 .each formed from a straight piece of comparatively heavy spring Wire and coiled intermediate its ends as indicated at 25 providing a central'opening 2"! and two oppositely extending parallel portions 28 and 29.' Portion 28 of each member 25 is bent, at its. freeend to provide anangularly extended hook ,3-d,.-and portion 253 is. coiled, at. its
