May 14, 1957 Filed Dec. 24, 1953 M. C. GUEST VENTILATED AUTOMOBILE SEAT PAD 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Maurice 6. Guesf IN VEN TOR.

United States The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in ventilated pads or cushions for the back and seat of an automobile.

An important object of the invention is to provide a removable unitary back and seat pad or cushion having ventilating openings therein and to which air is supplied by an air scoop connected to the pad or cushion and supported exteriorly of the car.

Another object is to provide means for supporting the scoop in the window of a car and equipping the pad and scoop with automatically releasable connecting means whereby the scoop will become detached upon the opening of the door of the car and remain attached to the door.

A further object is to provide a device of this character of suitable and practical construction, which is eflicient and reliable in operation, relatively inexpensive to manufacture and otherwise well adapted for the purpose for which the same is intended.

These together with other objects and advantages which will become subsequently apparent reside in the details of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawings forming a part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout and in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view;

Figure 2 is an enlarged sectional view taken on a line 22 of Figure 1;

Figure 3 is an enlarged group perspective view of the automatic releasable connection for the scoop;

Figure 4 is an enlarged vertical sectional view taken on a line 4--4 of Figure 1; and

Figure 5 is an enlarged fragmentary longitudinal sec tional view of the automatic releasable connection.

Referring now to the drawings in detail, wherein for the purpose of illustration I have disclosed a preferred embodiment of my invention, the numeral 5 designates a back section and 6 the seat section of a foldable hollow rubber pad or cushion and each formed with perforations 7 in their exposed surfaces.

One upper corner of the back section is formed with a laterally projecting neck 8 to which a ring 9 is secured and formed with a flange 10. A substantially rigid tube 11 is also provided with a ring 12 at its inner end and is formed with an arcuate channel 13 adapted to receive the flange of ring 9 and at a diametrically opposite side from channel 13 the ring 12 is provided with a spring catch 14 adapted to releasably grip the flange 10 to connect the tube to the neck 8.

An air scoop 15 is formed with a neck 16 which is sleeved over the outer end of tube 11 and a split clamping ring 17 is secured on neck 16 by a bolt and nut 18 and on which is supported a wire coil 19 of a spring clamp 20 which includes a pair of opposed substantially U- shaped wire clamping jaws 21 and 22. Each jaw is enclosed in a tubular rubber cover 23.

The jaws 21 and 22 are clamped to an automobile door 24 to support the air scoop in the window of the door in a position to project outwardly at the side of the car and with the scoop facing forwardly so that air will be forced into the back and seat sections of the pad when the car is being driven to cool a person occupying the seat of the car.

atent 0 The back section is formed with internal imperforate ducts or passages 25 which radiate from the neck 8 to dilferent parts of the seat section to equalize the distribution of air in the back and seat sections.

Should the door of the car be opened with the scoop clamped thereto and at the same time a downward pressure is subjected to the inner end of tube 11 'to tilt the scoop upwardly on the bolt and nut 18, the channel 13 on tube 11 will be moved downwardly to free the locking flange 10 on neck 8 and the catch 14 will also be released to disconnect the tube 11 from the neck 8 of the pad and prevent damage to the adjacent parts of the pad and scoop.

From the foregoing, the construction and operation of the device will be readily understood and further explanation is believed to be unnecessary. However, since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction shown and described and accordingly all suitable modifications and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the appended claims.

What I claim as new is as follows:

1. A ventilated automobile seat pad comprising unitary back and seat sections of hollow construction and having perforated exposed surfaces, said pad being adapted for detachably resting on an automobile seat, a tubular neck communicating with the interior of the pad and projecting outwardly at one upper corner of the back section, an air scoop projecting outwardly through an adjacent window of the automobile, resilient clip means detachably connecting the air scoop to the window, said scoop including a tubular neck through which air picked up by the scoop is delivered, a tube communicating with and leading from said last named neck into the window, and a resilient catch connecting the tube to the outer end of the first named neck for automatic release of the tube therefrom upon a predetermined separating force subject to the tube.

2. A ventilated pad including a hollow back section and a hollow seat section united with each other and having perforations in their exposed surfaces, said pad being adapted for detachably resting on an automobile seat, an air inlet at one upper corner of the back section, a laterally extending air scoop connected to the air inlet, and means cooperating with portions of the interior surfaces of said back and seat sections and forming therewith a plurality of internal ducts leading from the air inlet in a flared arrangement and each duct extending continuously in predetermined paths behind the perforated surface of the back and seat sections to distribute air directly to the related areas of the pad.
