Patented May 26, i953 SUPPORT FOR BED FRAMEWORK Edward J. Strybel, Cincinnati, Ohio, assignor to Campbell and Company, Cincinnati, Ohio, a

partnership Application July 8, 1949, Serial No. 103,635

' 1 Claim.

. 3 1 v This invention relates to supports for a bed framework and more particularly to an adjustable support structure adapted to fit bed frames of various sizes and types.

Home and hospital beds come in various widths.

Normally the framework of a bed is supported by head and foot boards which carry lug receiving plates that can engage lugs attached to the bed framework. However, the spacing between lugs normally varies between beds and in addition,

the lug receiving plates on bed head and foot boards vary in spacing so that ordinarily the framework of a bed fits only the head board and foot board specially designed therefor.

An object of this invention is to provide a support structure for a bed framework which is adapted to be supported by head and foot boards of various widths so that the framework can be used with various head and foot boards to replace the conventional bed framework.

A further object of this invention is to provide a; support for a corner of a bed framework having .a pair of lugs mounted one above the other, one .lug of the pair being adjustable toward and .away from the other lug to accommodate lug holding plates having various lug spacing.

, A further object of this invention is to provide ,a bed framework having side rails to which removable lug holding plates may be attached in various positions to accommodate head and foot ,boards of various widths, and to which separate legs may be attached, if desired, so that the bed framework may be supported without the use of head and foot boards.

The above and other objects and features of the invention will in part be obvious and will in part be apparent from the following detailed description and the drawings, in which:

Fig. 1 is a fragmentary view in side elevation showinga portion of a bed framework and a foot board having adjustable supports constructed in accordance with an embodiment of this invention;

Fig. 2 is a fragmentary plan view of the bed framework and foot board illustrated in Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a view in side elevation showing a gusset plate which forms a portion of the bed support;

Fig. 4 is a view in section taken along a line IVIV in Fig. 1;

Fig. 5 is a view in section similar to Fig. 4 and showing the bed support in an alternate position;

Fig. 6 is a view in section similar to Fig. 4 and showing the bed support in another alternate position;

Fig. '7 is a fragmentary view in side elevation showing the bed framework supported by a removable leg;

Fig. 8 is a view in section taken along a line VIII-VIII in Fig. 7; and

Fig. 9 is a view in section showing a bed support constructed in accordance with a second embodiment of the invention.

In the following detailed description and the drawing, like reference characters indicate like parts.-

In Figs. 1 and 2 a bed framework is shown which includes side rails 10 and a cross rail II which are attached together in the usual manner. The rails may be formed from angle irons and may be adapted to support movable bed sections, one of which is indicated at l2, and appropriate operating cranks andlinkage l3 may be provided for raising and lowering the movable sections.

The side rails are equipped with bolt holes. Bolts I5 extend through the bolt holes and removably attach gusset plates 16 to the side rails, the bolts l5 extending through bolt holes H3 in the gusset plates and through the bolt holes in the side rails.

As shown in Fig. 3, each gusset plate 16 is generally trapezoidal in shape having a portion which contains the bolt holes I8 by means of which the gusset plate may be attached to one of the side rails and a second portion adapted to extend beyond the end of the side railin which are located a vertical slot 22 and a bolt hole 23 aligned therewith. The slot 22 and bolt hole 23 are adapted to receive the shanks respectively of a stationary lug 24 (Figs. 1 and 4) .and a movable lug 26. 'I'he stationary lug 24 includes a threaded end, an intermediate shank portion of larger diameter than the threaded portion, and an enlarged head,- being of.usual construction, and as shown in Fig. 4, the lug 24 is held in place in thebolt hole 23 by means of an appropriate nut on the threaded portion thereof with the intermediate shank and head extending outwardly from the gusset plate.

The movable lug 26 is similar in form to the stationary lug including a threaded portion, an intermediate shank of larger cross-section than the threaded portion, and an enlarged head, the threaded shank portion of the lug 26 extending through and being held in the slot 22 so that the lug 26 is movable along the slot 22 toward or away from the stationary lug 24.

As shown in Fig. l, the lugs 24 and 26 are adapted to fit into lug holding slots 21 in a lu plate 28 attached to a foot board 29.

The stationary lugs may support substantially all the weight of the framework, while the movable lugs act as guides and hold the foot board upright preventing the foot board from turning about the stationary lugs.

Each movable lug may be moved up or down along slot 22 so that thesupports-.may be adapted to foot boards having variously spaced slots in lug receiving plates. The foot board 29 carries two lug plates 28, as shown in Fig. 2, and a pair of gusset plates 16 are attached. to the bed.

spaced lug plates.

Further, the cross rail-maybe; out awayor'slotted as indicated at (in Fig. hand the gusset plates maybe mounted on inner sides of the side rails, as shown in- Fig. 6', with the lugs extending inwardly to accommodate a. bed having a narrow foot board.

As will be understood, a head board may be provided having lug supporting plates similar to those ofthe foot board and adapted to support the head end of the bed frame.

In some beds, the head and'foot boards may bear such width that it is impossible to adapt the framework supporting lugs to fit the head and foot boards, and in such case, as shown inFigs. 7 and 8', separate legs may be attached to the bed side rails in place of the gusset plates l 6. Each Iegmember includes avertical baror leg 3| welded or otherwise firmly attached to a gusset plate 32. As shown, the gusset plate 32 may have three bolt holes which can register-with the bolt holes in the side rail so that" the gussetiplate 32 can be attached to a, side rail with the-legSl extending downwardly to support the bed frame.

In Fig. 9 is shown a modified form 'of bedsupport which diners from the support shown in Figs. 1 to 6 inclusive in-the form of lugs. In Fig. 9 a corner of a bed framework is shown which includes'a cross rail34 and a side rail 36. A gusset plate 31' similar in form to the gusset plate i6 is attached to the side rail iifl' by means of bolts A pair of lugs 39 and '40 are attached to the gusset platesand' can-be received in lug receiving slots of a lug plate 4!. The upper Iug 39 is stationary and extends through a circular hole '82 in thegusset plate, While the lower lug 40 is movable vertically toward and away from the stationary lug and extends through a vertical slot 43 in the'gusset plate.

from the drawings, the'support illustrated in Fig. '9 can be'adapted for use with a variety of bed end frameworks of various widths. As will be understood, similar gusset plates, lugs, etc. may

beprovidedat each corner of the bed framework.

Byimcans' of the-adjustable supports of this inventionga single bed frame may be supported by any of many different sizes and types of head and. footboards having lug receiving plates of various spacings and slots in the plates of various spacings, or the bed frame may be supported by itself on the legs 3f without requiring supl rt 'fr'cm thehcad and foot boards'." Thuefit is possible'to construct a single movablebed'frame which can be substituted for the conventional frame in any of many difierent types and sizes of beds.

The-embodiment of the invention described aboveand illustrated in the drawing is subjectto structural modification without departingirom the spirit and scope of the appended claim.

'Having'described my invention what I-claim as'novel and desiretosecnre by'Letters Patent is:

A bed which comprises 'a pair of spaced side rails, each side rail having a substantially vertical flange, a vertical gnssetplate removablyattached to the vertical flange-oi each side rail at one end thereof, each gussetplate being" selectively attachable to either side of' the flange-with which his associated, each gussetplate having a portion extending beyond theend of its associated side'rail, saidportion of each gusset plate containing-a bore' and" a vertical slot vertically spaced from the boraa transverse lug-mounted in each' of said slots and bores, each of saidlugs having'a portionextending outwardly from one side of the gusset plate with which it is associated and removably received'in a'lug holding slot of one of a pair of spaced lu'g'ho-lding plates attached to a bed end frame, the lug in the slot of each gusset plate beingmovable up and down in the slot to adjust the spacingof the lugs, so

that the lugs are receivable in Iug holding" plates having lugholdingslots of various spacings, and meansfor locking each movable Iugin predetermined position of adjustment in its slot. 7 EDWARD-T; STRYBEL.
