SEAT PAD Filqd Feb. 7, 1950 INVENTOR. Z 11. fiarlm,

Patented May 8, 1951 SEAT PAD Thomas K. Barton, McAllen, Tex., assignor to Sanitary Cushion Company, Corpus Christi, Tex., a corporation of Texas Application February 7, 1950, Serial No. 142,749

3 Claims.

This invention relates to a seat pad.

The invention is more particularly concerned with a seat pad for use by patrons when attending football, baseball and other games and sports, and the pad may be used on a seat, chair, bench, or even on the ground.

As is generally known, seat pads for the uses above enumerated have been quite extensively used due to the comfort alforded thereby when placed on the usual hard and uncomfortable grandstand seats and the like.

Seat pads for the purposes enumerated, as heretofore constructed, were relatively expensive, due to the material used in their construction, and the expense incurred in their use was considerably increased upon recognitionof the fact that they were often stolen or lost.

It is accordingly a primary object of this invention to provide a highly efficient seat pad which is constructed of relatively cheap material, whereby the expense incurred in the use of such pads is materially reduced as compared with similar pads as heretofore constructed.

It is a further and more particular object of the invention to provide a seat pad which is constructed wholly from paper, or other Waste or cheap material.

It is a still further object of the invention to provide a paper seat pad having a central area adapted to have advertising or the like placed thereon.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent in the course of the following detailed description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing wherein Figure 1 is a plan view of the improved pad in accordance with a preferred structural embodiment thereof.

Figure 2 is. an enlarged transverse sectional view in the plane of line 2-2 on Fig. 1.

Figure 3 is an edge view of the pad.

Referring now in detail to the drawing, the improved pad is shown as being of circular form and as including opposed cover portions l and II.

The cover portions are preferably of paper known as tuff which is of a crinkled character, whereby it is capable of considerable stretch to avoid tearing due to substantial localized pressures on the pad.

The two cover portions Ill and II are stitched together adjacent their perimeters, as indicated at l2, and the cover portions are further stitched together by a circular line of stitching l3 adjacent the center of the pad.

The cover portions as thus attached provide a circular pocket [4 in which is disposed a cushioning filler [5.

The filler I5 is also formed from paper or any other material, and while the type of paper used for the purpose may be within the discretion of a manufacturer, it is preferably shredded or torn newspapers or other discarded papers as an important consideration in the cost of the pads.

As is clearly shown in Fig. 2, the cover portions In and II are in face-to-face contact within the line of stitching 13, as is indicated at I6, and such contacting portions are disposed intermediate the opposite sides of the pad and well below the opposed faces of the padded portion.

The portion l6, while not detracting from the comfort of the pad, provides a pair of opposed plane faces on which advertising, insignia or other matter may be placed, and due to the position of the portion l6, such advertising or the like will not be subject to any marring action by the body of the user of the pad.

In constructing the pad, the stitching l3 will first be inserted, after which the filler l5 may be placed within the pocket [4 and the pad then completed by inserting the marginal line of stitching l2.

From the above disclosure, it will be seen that the improved pad, which is completely of paper construction, is capable of manufacture at relatively low cost.

A low price pad of the kind herein disclosed is highly desirable, not only for the reason that it will be within the reach of any one who desires the use of a seat pad, but also from the standpoint of health. It has heretofore been a practice to rent a pad, and such rented pads have, of course, been previously used by others, for which reason they cannot be strictly sanitary.

The pad herein disclosed is capable of manufacture and sale at relatively low cost, which will discourage the renting practice, and those desiring seat pads can well afford to have their own.

Furthermore, should the pad be lost, stolen or for some reason damaged, it can be replaced at relatively low cost.

While I have disclosed my invention in accordance with a single specific structural embodiment thereof, such is to be considered as illustrative only, and not restrictive, the scope of the invention being defined in the following claims.

What I claim, and desire to secure by U. 8. Letters Patent is:

, amps 1. A seat pad comprising opposed cover portions of crinkled paper having their central portions in contact and their marginal portions spaced providing a pocket therebetween, and a filler of shredded Waste paper within the pocket.

2. A seat pad comprising opposed circular cover portions, the cover portions being secured together on a circular line adjacent the centers thereof and with the areas of the cover portions within said line being substantially in contact, the cover portions being further secured together adjacent their margins and providing a circular pocket circumscribing said contacting areas, and a filler disposed within said pocket.

3. A pad according to claim 2, wherein said cover portions are formed of crinkled paper and wherein said filler is formed of waste paper.
