Application February 9, 1950, Serial No. 143,195

4 Claims. 1

This invention relates to a stand or support for a golf bag which permits the bag to be pulled or rolled on the golf course so that the golf clubs and other accessories will be readily accessible at all times to the player.

The primary object of the invention is to provide a stand which is attractive in appearance, relatively simple in construction, and which includes a novel means whereby the supporting legs will be folded against the stand automatically as the same is pulled along the ground, the same means causing the leg to be unfolded into a supporting position as the stand is brought to a stop and released.

A further object of the invention is to provide a transportable golf bag stand comprising a first elongated bar, bars on both sides of said first bar slidably and guidingly retained on the latter, means for securing a golf bag to said first bar, rollers at the bottom end of said first bar, handle means carried by said side bars, legs, and link means pivotally securing said legs to said first bar and said side bars whereby said legs fold inwardly towards said bars in response to an upward pull on said handle means.

These, together with various ancillary objects and features of the invention which will later become apparent as the following description proceeds, are attained by the device, a preferred embodiment of which has been illustrated by way of example only in the accompanying drawings, wherein:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the stand and golf bag shown in a supporting or still position;

Figure 2 is a perspective view showing the legs folded and the stand in a, position to be moved;

Figure 3 is a sectional view taken on the line 33 of Figure 1;

Figure 4 is a perspective view of the stand minus the golf bag;

Figure 5 is a sectional view taken on the line 55 of Figure 4; and

Figure 6 is a sectional view taken on the line 6-6 of Figure 4.

Specific reference is now made to the drawings. In the several views in the accompanying drawings and in the following specification similar reference characters indicate corresponding elements throughout.

Indicated generally at H] is a conventional golf bag having a metallic base member I2 and a metallic ring [4 having a divider rod It to separate the clubs IS. The ring is retained in a marginal sleeve 26 out out at one point to permit exposure of a lug 22 secured to the ring.

The stand of the present invention is indicated at 24 and comprises a central elongated bar 26 and two bars 28 and 30 on both sides thereof. The bottom end of the central bar includes a sleeve 32 for journaling an axle supporting rollers or wheels 34. Adjacent the sleeve and welded to the central bar is an L-shaped bracket 36 secured as'at 38 to the base member of the golf bag while the lug 22 is secured as at 40 to the upper end of the central bar so that the bag is supported across its length on the stand as shown clearly in the drawings.

The side bars 23 and 30 are slidably and guidingly retained on the central bar by longitudinally spaced members 42 the construction of which is shown in Figure 6, each member consisting of an upper plate M and a lower plate 46 extending across the central plate but secured as by rivets 48 to the side bars.

A pair of longitudinally spaced, transversely extending rods 58 and 52 are welded to the side bars 28 and 30 but extend across the central bar. The free ends of the rods carry removable knobs 56 for securing the ends of a pair of U-shaped handles 58 and 60. As will be seen in Figures 1 and 2, the free ends of each handle are secured on the corresponding projecting ends of therods 50 and 52 on both sides of the stand and bag, the handles being employed to pull the bag and stand in a manner soon to be described.

A pair of divergent legs 62 and 64 are provided which with the rollers 34 form a tripod support for the bag and a means is provided for securing the legs in such a manner that they will fold and unfold in response to apull and release on the handles. This means comprises the following structural features. A yoke member t6 has a web portion 68 which is secured by rivets 10 to the side bars 28 and St at the underfaces thereof. Pivoted as at E2 to the legs 34 and 16 of the yoke is a pair of bowed straps l3 and 80 which are in turn fixedly secured as at 82 to the upper ends of the legs 62 and 64. An apertured lug 84 is secured to the underface of the, central bar 26 intermediate it ends and links 86 and 88 are terminally pivoted as at 90, 92, and 94 to said lug and to inner surfaces of the upper ends of the legs 62 and 64.

The manner of using the stand should now be apparent. Assuming the rest position shown in Figure 1, if it is desired to roll the stand and bag on the golf course to another location, all the golfer does is grip the handles 58 and and exert an upward pull on the handles at the same time raising the bag to a substantially upright position. This slides the bars 28 and 30 upwardly relative to the central bar 26 pulling the yoke 66 upwardly and because of the pivoted links 86 and 88, the straps 18 and 80, and the stationary lug 84 pivoted to the links, the legs 62 and 65 will gravitate and pivot inwardly and downwardly towards the bars of the stand as shown in Figure 2 and in dotted lines in Figure 3. When the golfer reaches the desired location, the handles are released whereupon the side bars slide downwardly relative to the central bars and the legs automatically unfold to assume the supporting position shown in Figures 1 and 4.

In view of the foregoing description taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings it is believed that a clear understanding 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.

Having described the invention, what is claimed as new is:

1. A transportable golf bag stand comprising a first elongated bar, bars on both sides of said first bar slidably and guidingly retained on the latter, means for securing a golf bag to said first bar, rollers at the bottom end of said first bar, handle means carried by said side bars, legs, and link means pivotally securing said legs to said first bar and said side bars whereby said legs fold inwardly towards said bars in response to an upward pull on said handle means and a raising of the bag to a substantially upright position, said handle means including a pair of longitudinally spaced rods each secured to said side bars and extending across said first bar and 4 U-shaped members each secured at its leg portions to the corresponding ends of said rods.

2. A transportable golf bag stand comprising a first elongated bar, bars on both sides of said first bar slidably and guidingly retained on the latter, means for securing a golf bag to said first bar, rollers at the bottom end of said first bar, handle means carried by said side bars, legs, and link means pivotally securing said legs to said first bar and said side bars whereby said legs fold inwardly towards said bars in response to an upward pull on said handle means, and a raising of the bag to a substantially upright position, said link means including a lug secured to said first bar intermediate its ends, a yoke member secured to said side bars and extending across said first bar, means pivotally securing the upper ends of said legs to said yoke member, and links terminally pivoted to the upper ends of said legs and said lug.

3. The combination of claim 2 wherein said leg securing means includes straps each fixedly secured at one end to the upper end of each leg and pivotally secured at its other end to one leg of said yoke member.

4. The combination of claim 3 wherein said handle means includes a pair of longitudinally spaced rods each secured to said side bars and extending across said first bar and U-shaped members each secured at its leg portions to the corresponding ends of said rods.

FRANK DUNBAR. ANTHONY BARBETTA.
