SHADE OR CANOPY.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 437,336, dated September 30, 1890.
Application filed Aprillfi, 1890. Serial No. 348,192. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, CHARLES E. GIEBEL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Fremont, in the county of Sandusky and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Shades or Canopies; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it apperta'ins to make and use the same.
My invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in folding shades or canopies for childrens carriages, road-carts, and other vehicles; and it consists in the construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter described, and particularly set forth in the claims forming a part of this specification.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 represents a perspective view of my improved shade or canopy in one of its positions of adjustment. Fig. 2 represents on an enlarged scale a detail of construction. Fig. 3 represents a plan view of the body portion of the shade or canopy, with its connections, but detached from its adj usting-rod. Fig. 4 represents a side elevation and partial section; and Figs. 5, 6, 7, and 8 represent various details of construction.
Similar numerals of reference indicate similar parts throughout the several views.
Referring to the drawings, 9 indicates the sustaining or supporting rod upon which the shade or canopy proper is mounted. At its summit it is provided with a flat circular head 10, having upon its edge or periphery a series of teeth or serrations, as shown. Spanning the circular head 10, and pivoted thereto by the bolt 11, is a yoke 12, having an internallyscrew-threadedshank 13 for the reception of the clamping thumb-screw 14, adapted to bear against the removable shank 15 of the rib pivot-plate 17. Beneath said shank 15 is located the bearing 16, having a toothed or serrated under surface, curved to engage with the corresponding surface of the circular head 10, and flanges 50, by means of which it is confined within the yoke and prevented from "falling out and being lost when the screw is loosened. I
The rib pivot-plate 17 consists of an angle= piece having flanges 18 19, extending parallel to each other and at right angles to the main portion, from whose back projects the shank 15 above referred to. At its forward end the flange 18 is bent into the form of an eye 20. The ribs are formed, as shown'in the drawings, of wires bent or doubled upon themselves. The upper wire of the central rib 21 of the folding shade or canopy fabric 22 passes at its inner end through the said eye 20 and through openings in both flanges 19 20, and, returning, has a hooked end 23, which engages a loop 24, made in the said wire in ad- Vance of the eye 20. The lower wire extends from the outer end of the rib, as shown, back, and is secured by means of a loop 42 to the return-bend of the upper Wire. In like manner the remaining ribs, as 25 26 27 28, pass through openings in both flanges 18 19, and, returning, engage-by hooked ends in similar loops made in the ribs themselves, the under wires of these ribs being also secured at their inner ends to loops similar to loops 42 on the return-bends of the upper wires. It will be observed, however, that only the central rib passes through a restraining guide-eye, as 20. The remaining ribs therefor, when not spanned by the spanner bow or arch 38, are free to swing toward the central rib, so as to fold into a small space.
The several ribs are connected to the under side of the fabric 22 by stitching or otherwise. The spanner bow or arch 39 is connected at its opposite ends to the ribs 27 28, preferably, by means of loops 54, made in the lower wires of the ribs, and is provided with a slide 29, adapted to be moved longitudinally along the under wire of the central rib, so as to'fold or unfold the shade or canopy. The slide is provided with a set-screw 30, for clamping it upon the central rib.
The how 38 is formed of two pieces pivoted to the ribs 27 28, as described, and to the slide 29. This construction enables the said bow or spanner to fold when the ribs are folded. The slide 29, as shown in detail'in Figs. 6 and 7, consists of an upper and alower plate connected by rivets 31 32, which also serve as pivotal attachments for the ends 33 34 of the bow or spanner 38. A depression or central bend in one of the plates furnishes a guide for the central rib 30, so as to insure easy movement of the slide. V
The mode of operation of my invention will be clearly apparent. The supporting-rod 9 is connected to the vehicle in such manner as to occupy a vertical position at the rear of the seat to be shaded, and may, if desired,be made adjustable to any height suited to the convenience of the occupant of the vehicle. The shank 15 is thereupon inserted within the yoke 12, and the yoke is rocked upon its pivot forward or backward, as the case may be, and the shank is revolved axially until the desired adjustment or inclination of the shade or canopy is secured, whereupon the thumb-screw 14 is tightened, thereby binding or clamping the shank 15 against the bearingblock 16 and forcing the teeth of the latter into binding contact with the serrated head 10. The shade or canopy is thereby locked in the desired position of adjustment, and may be spread or extended by moving the slide 29 inwardly along the lower wire of the central rib 21 until it strikes the return-bend of the upper wire, whereupon the set-screw 30 fixes it in position. When it is desired to fold and lower the shade or canopy, the setscrew 30 is loosened and the slide 29 moved outwardly, so as to bring the ribs together in a folded position, and the thumb-screw14 is also loosened sufficiently to release the pressure upon the shank 15 and bearing-block 16 and permit the yoke to rock forward upon its pivot, thereby bringing the folded shade or canopy to a position parallel to or alongside of the vertical rod, so as not to overhang the seat.
It will be noted that the shank 15 is provided with an enlargement 35, which. serves to prevent the shank from dropping out of the. yoke when in this hanging or folded po- The bearing-block 16, moreover, be-
sition. ing of a curved form or shape, cannot drop out of the yoke or be removed therefrom un-' til the thumb-screw'is retracted to its uppermost limit of play.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim is- 1. In a shade or canopy for vehicles and the like, the combination, with the fabric, of a central pivotal piece having parallel perforated flanges and the duplex ribs, the upper members of the ribs passing through the parallel flanges of the pivotal piece and connected with the inner ends of the lower members, substantially as described.
2. In a shade or canopy for vehicles and the 'like, the combination, with the fabric, of a consisting of a fabric, duplex ribs pivoted to a common center and having their upper members attached to the fabric, a slide adapted to move toward and from the center on the lower member of the central rib, and a bow or spanner connected at its middle portion to the slide and at its outer extremities to the outermost ribs, the slide carrying a set-screw for engaging the central rib, substantially as described.
4. The combination of the vertical supporting-rod having a flattened head with a circular milled periphery, the yoke straddling the head and pivoted loosely thereon, a set-screw carried in the opposite end of the yoke, and a flanged follower playing in the yoke and having on its upper side a circular groove to receive the attachment shank and provided on its under side with a serrated curved depression to engage the milled periphery of the supporting-rod, substantially as described.
5. In a shade or canopy for vehicles and the like, the combination, with the fabric and its ribs, of a pivotal central piece for said ribs, consisting of an angle-piece having flanges or bends parallel to eachother, said flanges being perforated for the passage of the inner ends of the ribs, substantially as described.
6. In a shade or canopy for vehicles and the like, the combination, with the fabric, of a' central pivotal piece having parallel perforated flanges and ribs provided with eyes in advance of said pivotal piece, the inner ends of said ribs passing through the flange-perforations and terminating in hooks engaging with the eyes, substantially as described.
7. In a shade or canopy for vehicles and the like, the combination, with the fabric, of ribs attached thereto and radiating from a com- .mon center, a slide adapted to be moved along the central rib toward or from said common center, said slide having a bendor depression within which the central rib rests, and a bow or spanner consisting of two parts connected at their outer ends to the outer ribs of the shade and at their inner ends to the slide, and a set-screw for locking the slide upon the central rib, substantially as described.
8. In a shade or canopy for vehicles or the like, the bow or spanner slide described, consisting of two plates, one of which is provided with a cental bend or depression for the reception of the central rib of the shade and the other with a set-screw adapted to clamp upon said rib, and rivets connecting the two plates, said rivets serving as attachment posts for the separate parts of the spanner, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
