8 Claims. (Cl. 297-118) This invention relates to a new and improved device which serves not only as a pair of folding seats, but also as a convenient lunch box or other carrying case.

One object of the present invention is to provide a new and improved device of the foregoing character which opens to provide a pair of comfortable seats which may be used in a stadium, on a boat, or for other similar services.

A further object is to provide such a new and improved device in which the seats are provided with collapsible back rest members.

Another object is to provide such a new and improved device which folds compactly to provide a case for carrying vacuum bottles, sandwiches, rain coats, or other articles which may prove to be useful in connection with the seats.

It is a further object to provide a new and improved device of the foregoing character having a pair of cords or lines which support the back rest members, when the device is open, and which provide handles when the device is closed.

Another object is to provide such a new and improved device having a container which is swingably mounted on one of the seats so as to be movable into a position of use below the front end of the seat, so that the vacuum bottles, sandwiches, or other articles in the container will be conveniently accessible to the occupants of the seats.

A further object is to provide a new and improved device of the foregoing character in which the container is swingable against the seat so as to be enclosed between the seats when the device is closed.

Still another object is to provide a new and improved device of the foregoing character which is easy to manufacture and low in cost.

Further objects and advantages of the present invention will appear from the following description, taken with the accompanying drawings, in which:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a combination folding seat and lunch box, to be described as an illustrative embodiment of thepresent invention, shown in its open position, with the seats ready for use.

FIG. 2 is a perspective view showing the device of FIG. 1 in its closed position, ready to be carried to or from its point of use.

FIG. 3 is a vertical section, taken through the device of FIG. 1, generally along the line 33 therein.

FIG. 4 is a view similar to FIG. 3 but taken generally along the line 44 in FIG. 1.

FIG. 5 is a top view, partly in section, of one of the seat members employed in the device of FIG. 1.

FIG. 6 is a vertical section taken through the device of FIG. 1 in its closed position, generally along a line 66 in FIG. 2.

FIG. 7 is a fragmentary sectional view, taken generally along a line 7-7 in FIG. 5.

As just indicated, FIG. 1 illustrates a device 10 adapted to serve not only as a pair of folding seats, for use in a stadium, on a boat, or in other similar situations, but also to provide a case in which vacuum bottles 12, a lunch 14 or other useful articles may be carried. It will be seen that the device 10 comprises a pair of seats 16 which are substantially the same in construction. When the device 10 is open, as shown in FIG. 1, the seats 16 on the other seat.

3,120,404 Patented F eb'. 4, 1964 are disposed side by side. The seats may be mounted on the seat boards usually provided in a stadium, a small boat, or the like. When the device is closed, as shown in FIG. 2, the seats 16 are folded so as to provide a convenient carrying case for the vacuum bottles 12, the lunch 14, rain coats or various other useful articles.

It will be seen that each of the seats 16 is in the form of a hollow half shell. The shape of each seat 16 may also be likened to an inverted tray or pan. Thus, each seat 16 has a generally horizontal top wall 18 and a depending skirt or peripheral side wall flange 20 which provides a front wall 22, a rear wall 24, and a pair of side walls 26 and 28. The bottom of each seat member 16 is open.

Inside each seat member 16, a pair of reinforcing ribs or partitions 3t and 32 extend from front to rear, adjacent the side walls 26 and 28. Transverse webs 34 extend between each of the ribs 30 and 32 and the corresponding side walls 26 and 28.

The seat member 16 may be moulded very economically from various plastic materials, such as polystyrene, polyethylene or polypropylene, for example. These plastics provide suflicient resilience so that the top wall 18 provides comfortable support for the user. If desired, the top wall 18 may be appropriately padded. A multiplicity of holes 36 may be formed in the top wall 18 to provide ventilation and also to reduce the weight of the folding seat device 10. The openings 36 also increase the springiness of the top wall 18. The illustrated seats 16 are connected together by hinge means, whereby the seats may be swung between the open position of FIG. 1 and the closed position of FIG. 2. In this case, such hinge means comprise a pair of hinge pins 38 projecting from bosses or lugs 40 formed on the side wall 26 of each seat. Apertures or bores 42 to receive the hinge pins 38 are formed in olfset bosses or lugs 44 formed on the side wall 28 of each seat. It will be evident that the hinge pins 38 may readily be slipped into and out of the bores 42 so that the seats 16 may be disassembled and used separately if desired. For manufacturing convenience, a full set of both of the lugs 40 and 44 may be formed on both seats, although some of the lugs are not used.

The hinge lugs 40 and 42 are formed at the lower edges of the side walls 26 and 28 so that the seats 16 will be disposed side by side with their top walls 18 in substanti-ally the same plane when the seats are opened, as shown in FIG. 1. When the seats 16 are closed or folded, as shown in FIGS. 2 and 6, the open bottoms of the seats are opposite each other, so that the top walls 18 and the front, rear and side walls 22, 24, 26 and 28 of both seats form a closed hollow carrying case. To hold the seats 16 in their closed position, one of the seats may be provided with a latch 46 which is pivotally mounted on the side wall 28 and is adapted to interlock with a pin 48 The illustrated latch 46 is formed with a slot 54) for receiving the pin 48. Any other suitable type of latch may be employed.

In order to anchor the seats 16 on a stadium seat, boat or the like, each of the illustrated seats 16 is provided with a pair of hooks 52 adapted to extend downwardly adjacent the front wall 22. Each hook 52 is generally L-shaped and thus has a downwardly projecting leg 54 and a foot or flange portion 56 which is bent rearwardly from the lower end of the arm 54. As shown to advantage in FIG. 3, the foot portion 56 is adapted to extend beneath a stadium seat board 58 or the like, so as to restrain the seat 16 from tipping rearwardly. The leg portion 54 of each hook 52 is engageable with the front edge of the seat board 58 so as to prevent the seat 16 from sliding rear wardly off the seat board.

Each of the illustrated hooks 52 is swingably mounted on the corresponding seat 16 so as to be swingable upwardly into the hollow space within the seat, when the seats are to be folded. Thus, the upper end of each leg 54 is formed into a loop or eye 60. A pivot pin or rod 62 is inserted through the eye 60 and is adapted to be supported in openings 64 and 66 formed in the side walls 26 and 28 and in the ribs 30 and 32. The books 52 are adapted to be folded into the spaces between the side walls 26 and 28 and the corresponding ribs 30 and 32.

To increase the comfort of the users, each of the seats 16 is provided with a back rest member 68 which is swingable into a position of use extending upwardly from the rear portion of the seat and generally perpendicular thereto, as shown in FIG. 1. Each back member 68 is swingable into a folding or collapsed position against the top wall 18 of the corresponding seat, as shown to advantage in FIGS. 2 and 6. Thus, each back member 68 is formed with a pair of flanges 70 which are secured to the side walls 26 and 28 by means of pivot pins 72, which may take the form of rivets, screws or the like.

The pivots 72 may be connected to bosses 74 formed on the side walls 26 and 28 at the rear of the seat. If desired, a multiplicity of openings 76 may be formed in each back member 68 to provide ventilation and to reduce the weight of the folding seat. It will be evident that the back rest members 68 may be moulded at low cost from various plastic materials.

Each seat 16 is provided with means for supporting the back member 68 in its erected position. In this case, such means take the form of cords or lines 78 which are looped behind the back members 68. The ends of each cord 78 are secured to the side walls 26 and 28 of the corresponding seat 16. Thus, each of the side walls 26 and 28 may be provided with an opening 80. The ends of the cords 78 may be inserted through the openings and may be knotted inside the seat to anchor the cord. As shown, each back member 68 is formed with a pair of loops or eye members 82 for receiving and retaining the corresponding cord 78 so as to prevent the cord from falling down behind the back member. It will be seen that the cord 78 extends in slanting or diagonal flights between the seat 16 and the back rest 68. When the folding seat member is folded, as shown in FIGS. 2 and 6, the cords 78 provide convenient handles. It will be evident that the cords 78 are long enough to be brought together in front of the front walls 22 which are at the top of the device when it is folded. One of the cords may be looped around the other cord, and such other cord may be fitted with a tubular handle member 86 which may be gripped comfortably in the hand of the user. When the folding seat 10 is open, the handle member 86 is disposed in back of one of the back rests 68, as shown in FIG. 1.

Each seat 16 may be formed with slots 88 and 90 in the front and rear walls 22 and 24. A strap 92 may be threaded through the slots 88 and 90 and may be employed to secure the seats to the seat boards of a boat or the like so that the seats will remain in place despite the irregular movements of the boat. It is not usually necessary to employ such straps 92 when the seats are mounted on stadium seat boards.

To provide convenient support for the vacuum bottles 12, the lunch 14 and other articles, the illustrated folding seat 10 is provided with a container 94 which is in the form of a generally rectangular open topped box or bin having front and rear walls 96 and 98, a pair of side walls 100, and a bottom wall 102. In this case, the box 94 is of a size such as to hold two vacuum bottles with room for sandwiches or other articles therebetween. The illustrated box 94 is conveniently mounted on one of the seats 16 so as to be movable downwardly into a position just below the front of the seat when the folding seat is opened, as shown in FIG. -1. When the seat device is closed, the box 94 is movable into a position in which it is enclosed between the hollow seats or half shells 16,

as shown to advantage in H6. 6. The box 94 is adapted to be received in the compartment between the two ribs or partitions 3t) and 32 in each of the seats 16.

To provide for such movement, the illustrated box 94 is swingably mounted inside the front portion of the corresponding seat 16. Thus, as shown to advantage in FIG.

4, the upper portion of the rear wall 98 is rolled or otherwise formed into an eye 104. The pivot rod 62, which also supports the hooks 52, may be inserted through the eye 104 so as to provide pivotal support for the box 94.

When the combination folding seat and lunch box 10 is closed, as shown in FIGS. 2 and 6, the box 94 is swung into the corresponding seat or half shell 16 so that the rear wall 98 of the box is adjacent the top wall 18 of the corresponding seat. The box 94 is entirely enclosed within the two hollow seats 16. The latch 46 retains the seats in their folded position.

When the folding seat 10 is to be opened, the latch 46 is unhooked from the pin 48 and the cords 78 are disengaged from each other. The seats 16 may then be swung away from each other until they are side by side. In this position of the seats, the lunch box 94 may be swung out of the corresponding seat 16 so that it occupies the position shown in FIG. 1, just below the front portion of the seat. The back rest members 68 are swung upwardly into their erected positions. Finally,

the hooks 52 are swung downwardly and are hooked under the seat board 58.

It will be evident that the present invention provides convenient and comfortable folding stadium seats, together with a built-in lunch box which may be employed to carry hot coffee or other beverages, sandwiches, rain coats or the like. The device may be carried very easily and conveniently when it is folded. Thus, the device is very desirable for use by persons watching football games and other stadium events. It is also valuable for use in small boats and the like. It will be recognized that the device of the present invention may readily be manufactured at low cost.

Various modifications, alternative constructions and equivalents may be employed without departing from the true spirit and scope of the invention as exemplified by the foregoing description and defined in the following claims.
