Referring to the drawing whereinlike numer als are use to designate similar partsl th r oug hout the several views, the numeral 10. refers gfii etallyi to my attachment for kites consisting of an el'ongated body portion l l; supported from the kite string 12 by supporting members s. The support members s which overhang the kite string 12 consists of an. upstanding member l ii extending vertically of the body portion 11 with a string engaging member 14 extending horizontally. from. the, top edge of theupstanding member. 13,. the latter being. shorterin. width than, the string engaging member 14. At the free edge of the string engaging member 14 is a downwardly extending member 15 parallel to the upstariding member 13. A return member 16 extends horizontally from the downwardly extending member 15 in the direction of the upstanding member 13 but spaced therefrom to form a slot 17 between the adjacent edges of the members 13 and 16. The slots 17 permit the body member 11 to be sus- 3,227,404 Patented Jan. 4, 1966 ice I the 11d of he string a he-t he t tea e h ough. the sup ih heaters es er in hread a. needle ret s P ef he hesl member. 11. is st speh i t. h

Y et the rwar nd. he. th,

of the attachment device compels the pivoted arm 31 to pivot clockwise as shown by FIGURE 3 causing the bar 30 to swing upwardly out of the groove 34 and out of contact with the wings 21. The wind will now compel the wings 21 to swing to their forward position as shown by FIG- URE 3 and the force of the wind is no longer effective against my attachment device and the latter now will slide downwardly back toward the person holding the string 12.. When the attachment device 10 is within reach of the person flying the kite, he will then swing the wings 21 outwardly until the bar 30 is free to swing downwardly into the slot 34. If it is desired to have a toy such as a plane or parachute be carried aloft by my attachment device 10, the wings 21 are swung outwardly, the parachute aeroplane lines are placed between the jaw members 24 which then grip those lines and hold the object securely. Now when the attachment device 10 is blown up to the cone deflector 36 and the wings are made to swing forwardly to their inoperative position, the jaw members 24 will likewise swing away from each other and release the lines therefrom. The parachute or aeroplane will then float or fly downwardly to the earth where it is retrieved and-placed on my attachment device 10 again if such is desired.

What I claim as new and desire to secure ,by Letters Patent of the United States is:

L An attachment for kites and the like comprising an elongated body member, suspension means mounted on an upper portion of said elongated body member for releas ably and slidably mounting said attachment on a kite string, a pair of wing members pivotally mounted on the lower portion of said body member, means preventing said wing members from pivoting rearwardly beyond a substantially extended position, pivoted arm means mounted on said elongated body member forwardly of said wing members, and extending beyond the forward end of said body member, a bar mounted on said pivoted arm means and engaging said wing members whereby said wing members are maintained in an extended position and means mounted on the forward end of said pivoted arm means adapted to be engaged by a deflector member to cause said pivoted arm means to be pivoted to swing said bar out of contact relation with said wing members and said wing members to swing forwardly to their inoperative position.

2. An attachment for kites and the like comprising an elongated body member, suspension means mounted on an upper portion of said elongated body member for releasably and slidably mounting said attachment on a kite string, a pair of wing members pivotally mounted on the lower portion of said body member, jaw members mounted on said wing members in abutting relation preventing said wing members from pivoting rearwardly beyond a substantially abutting position, pivoted arm means mounted on said elongated body member forwardly of said wing members, and extending beyond the forward end of said body member, a bar mounted on said pivoted arm means and engaging said wing members whereby said wing members are maintained in an extended position and means mounted on the forward end of said pivoted arm means adapted to be engaged by a deflector member to cause said pivoted arm means to be pivoted to swing said bar out of contact relation with said wing members and said wing members to swing forwardly to their inoperative position.

3. An attachment for kites and the like comprising an elongated body member, suspension means mounted on an upper portion of said elongated body member for releasably and slidably mounting said attachment on a kite string, a pair of wing members pivotally mounted on the lower portion of said body member, means preventing said wing members from pivoting rearwardly beyond a substantially extended position, an arm extending beyond the forward end of said elongated body member, a pivot pin pivotally securing said arm to said body member in closer proximity to the forward end of said arm than the rear end thereof, a bar mounted on the rear end of said arm and extending on either side in contact relation with said wing members while in an extended position, said body member having a groove on its upper surface receiving said bar, and a nose portion mounted on the forward end of said arm whereby upon being engaged by a deflector member, said arm will pivot and cause said bar to swing out of contact relation with said wing members and said wing members to swing forwardly to their inoperative position.

4. An attachment for kites and the like comprising an elongated body member, suspension means mounted on an upper portion of said elongated body member for releasably and slidably mounting said attachment on a kite string, a hinge pin secured to the lower portion of said body member and extending at an oblique angle away from a forward end of said body member, a pair of wings pivotally secured to said hinge pin and extending substantially in opposite directions, means preventing said wing members from pivoting rearwardly beyond said substantially extended position, pivoted arm means mounted on said elongated body member forwardly of said wing members, and extending beyond the forward end of said body member, a bar mounted on said pivoted arm means and engaging said wing members whereby said wing members are maintained in an extended position and means mounted on the forward end of said pivoted arm means adapted to be engaged by a deflector member to cause said pivoted arm means to be pivoted to swing said bar out of contact relation with said wing members and said wing members to swing forwardly to their inoperative position.

5. A11 attachment for kites and the like comprising an elongated body member, suspension means mounted on an upper portion of said elongated body member for releasably and slidably mounting said attachment on a kite string, a hinge pin secured to the lower portion of said body member and extending at an oblique angle away from a forward end of said body member, a pair of wings pivotally secured to said hinge pin and extending substantially in opposite directions, means preventing said wing members from pivoting rearwardly beyond said substantially extended position, an arm extending beyond the forward end of said elongated body member, a pivot pin pivotally securing said arm to said body member in closer proximity to the forward end of said arm than the rear end thereof, a bar mounted on the rear end of said arm and extending on either side in contact relation with said wing members while in an extended position, said body member having a groove on its upper surface receiving said bar, and a nose portion mounted on the forward end of said arm whereby upon being engaged by a deflector member, said arm will pivot and cause said bar to swing out of contact relation with said wing members and said wing members to swing forwardly to their inoperative position.
