HAlVllVlOCK.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 390,393, dated October 2, 1888.

Application filed December 1, 1887. Serial No. 256,605.

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, BARRY A. NORRIS, of Houston, in the county of Harris and State of Texas, have invented a new and Improved Hammock, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

The object of my invention is to provide a new and improved hammock which is simple and durable in construction, very comfortable, and yielding to the motion of the body, at the same time avoiding the catching of buttons on the dress, as is frequently the case with hammocks having meshes.

Ihe invention consists of a number of slats, each provided at its ends with a transverse aperture, through which passes a cord or wire for holding the slats together to form the hammock.

The invention also consists of certain parts and details and combinations of the same, as will. be fully described hereinafter, and then pointed out in the claims.

Refercnceis to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.

Figure 1 is a plan view of myimprovement. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same. Fig. 3 is an enlarged perspective view of part of my improvement, and Fig. I is a detail view of a modification.

The improved hammock A is provided with a number of slats, B, made of wood or other suitable material, each slat being provided at its ends with a transverse aperture, 0. Two succeeding slats B are placed in opposite di rections to each other, but so that the respective apertures of the two adjoining ends register with each other. A suitable number of such slats B are placed together to form a hammock of a suitable width, and any desired number of such rows of slats may be joined longitudinally with each other to form a hammock of the desired length, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2.

Through the apertures C is passed trans versely a rope or wire, D, for securely holding the ends of the slats together. Each rope or wire D may be fastened to the outer ends of the outer slats B orthe same rope may be used for two rows of apertures, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2. In the intervening spaces be- (No model.)

tween the end slats B are placed the collars E, and a rope or wire, F, is passed through the end apertures and the said collars, so as to hold the outer end slatsin place. The said rope F is extended a suitable distance,and its ends are connected in a ring, G, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2. The hammock A is suspended by the rings G in the usual manner. A nunr bcr of brace-ropes, H, are secured to the end ropes, F, and connected with the ends of the end slats B, as shown in Fig. 1.

It will be seen that a hammock thus coir structed is very strong and durable, and the several slats B are held yieldingly, as they are fulcrumed at each end of the respective cord or rope D. The hammock may be made of any desired length and width by adding a suitable number of slats B to the length and width. Byjoining the several slats B as described I make the hammock very comfortable and yielding to the motion of the body, at the same time avoiding the catching the buttons of the dress, as is frequently the case in hammocks provided with meshes and made of hemp cord or like material.

Having thus fully described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent-- 1. In a hammock, the combination,with slats provided at their ends with transverse apertures, each two succeeding slats being placed in opposite directions,of ropes passing through the apertures in the said slats for fastening the latter together, the end ropes being extended and provided with rings from which the hammock is suspended,'substantially as shown and described.

2. In a hammock, the combination, with slats provided at their ends with transverse apertures, each two succeeding slats being placed in opposite directions, of ropes passing through the apertures in the said slats for fastening the latter together, the end ropes being extended and provided with rings from which the hammock is suspended,and bracing-ropes attached to the said end ropes and connected with the end slats,substantially as shown and described.

BARRY A. NORRIS.
