ERNST SIMON, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.

WAGON-COVER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 487,544, dated December 6, 1892.

Application filed February 19, 1892. Serial No. 422,147. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, ERNST SIMON, residing at Chicago, Cook county, Illinois, have invented a certain new and'useful Improvement in Wagon-Covers, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to covers which are used to protect drivers of wagons and other vehicles from rain, sun,snow, 850.; and its object is to provide means whereby this cover and its supporting-framework can be readily brought into position for use when desired and as readily stowed away when it is desired not to use the same.

My invention consists in the features, details of construction, and combinations hereinafter described and claimed.

In the drawings, Figure l is a perspective view of the adjustable framework forming a part of my invention, the cover being applied thereto and indicated in dotted lines; Fig. 2, a detail view illustrating the method of fastening the framework when in position for use; Fig. 3, a perspective view of the cover removed from the framework; and Fig. 4, a side elevation of the box or seat, the footboard,and a portion of the body of the wagon.

In constructing my invention I first make a telescopic or adjustable framework. The verticalportion of this framework is made in any 7 desired number of parts, adapted to be readily expanded or contracted when desired. In the drawings I have shown each portion of this framework as made in three parts, as follows: Secured to the side of the wagonbox A are tubes B, there being preferably two of these at each side of the wagon-box. These are secured to the wagon in any suitable manner, as by means of sockets b and straps b. In these tubes slide tubes 0 and in these tubes 0 slide rods D. The relative dimensions of these tubes and rods may be varied in accordance with the size of the wagon to which they are to be applied or the pleasure of the person constructing them. To hold these parts in an extended position, I provide catches E. One of these catches is more particularly shown in Fig. 2. They are pivoted, as shown,to the tubes B, adapted to pass through openings in these tubes, and engage with notches or depressions in the tubes C in order to hold these tubes in any position. Similar catches are provided adapted to engage with the rods D to hold or lock them.

Extending across the top of the framework at each side of the seat from one rod D to the other are tubes F, secured to the rods by means of Ts ff orin any other suitable manner, and in these tubes are slide-rods G, the tubes being provided with catches E, similar to those already described.

In Fig. 4 the cover is removed and the parts of the framework folded together in the position which theyoccupy when not in use, and in Fig. 1 I have shown them as extended in a position for use. I then make out of canvas or other suitable material a cover H of any desired dimensions and preferably in the form shown in Fig. 3, wherein it is provided with a top, back, and sides, being open at the front. Along the front and back edges of the top of this cover are rods I I, having pins it" at. their ends. Vhen the cover is applied, the pins 2' engage with holesin the Tsfand the pins 2" with holes in the ends of the rods G, the cover being firmly held by this means.

' hen it is desired to use the device, the framework is extended into the position shown in Fig. l and cover passed over it and the pins inserted into their respective holes, this position of the cover being indicated by dotted lines in Fig. 1. When it is desired to remove the cover, the canvas is taken off and the framework folded up in the position shown in Fig. 4. By this means-I provide a simple and economical wagon-cover, which is adapted to be readily changed from aposition of nonuse into one for use, and vice versa, which affords full protection when in use, and which occupies little, if any, room when not in use.

While I have described more or less precise forms, I do not intend to be limited unnecessarily thereto, but contemplatechanges in form, proportions, and the substitution of equivalents, as may necessary or desirable. Forexample,the number of the telescopic rods or tubes may be changed, as desirable, to adapt the device to wagons of different sizes, the canvas hood may be secured to the framework by other means than the pins, and similar changes maybe made without departingfrom my invention, the gist of which consists in use and a cover of suitable material adapted,

to be supported by such framework when in position for use and to be removed therefrom when in position of non-use, the framework when collapsed being entirely out of the way, substantially as described.

2. A wagon-cover comprising a telescopic framework, each member whereof is made in at least two sections, one fitting within the other, whereby the framework may be extended into a position for use or collapsed into a position of non-use, in which latter position it is entirely out of the way, substantially as described.

3. A wagon-cover comprising a framework which is collapsible and extensible both vertically and horizontally and a cover of suitable materialsupported thereby, substantially as described.

4. A wagon-cover comprising a telescopic framework capable of vertical and horizontal adjustment to different positions, whereby it can be folded up into a position of non-use or extended into a position for use, means for holding the parts of such framework in an extended position, and a cover of suitable ma terial engaging with and supported by such framework, substantially as described.

ERNST SIMON.
