SWING.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 699,189,- dated May 6,1902.

Application filed September 28, 1900. Serial No. 31 ,392. (No model.)

a citizen of the United States, residing at Morton, in the county of Delaware and State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Swing, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a swing; and the intent and purpose of the present improvement is to provide a simple and effective form of swing having a single-length suspending device embodying adjustable features and carrying a cage at its lower portion capable of receiving any kind of seating or other analogous device and also provided with an upper attachment thatcan be thrown over the limb of atree or other similar support and be fastened without climbing and tying the same or requiring the application of eyebolts or rings for such purpose, the entire device being readily detaclied'and reduced to compact form for storage or transportation and adapted for use indoors or outside.

The invention consists in the construction and arrangement of the several parts which will be more fully hereinafter described and claimed.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a swing embodying the features of the invention. Fig. 2 is a detail View of the preferred form of fastening chain and hook. Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view of a modification in the structure of the suspending device.

Similar numerals of reference are employed to indicate correspondingparts in the several views.

The numeral 1 designates a suspendingbar, which, as shown by Fig. 1, is made adjustable to increase the length thereof at will by the provision of two sections 2 and 3, the sections having overlapping inner ends and one of the latter ends carrying screw-bolts 4 to removably pass through openings 5 in the adjacent end of the other section to receive winged clamping-nuts 6. 'On theupper end of the section 2 a cap or socket eye 7 is se cured, and thereto is attached one end of a chain 8, preferably of the bicycle form shown by Fig. 2. On the other end of this chain a hook 9 is movably attached, and in applying this chain to the limb of a tree or analogous particularly juveniles.

. support it is thrown over the same and loosely engaged with the hook, the suspending-bar being stifi enough to allow this operation to be easily accomplished by positioning it until the said hook is engaged with the chain and then drawing the bar downwardly to locate the hook at the side of the limb. A disconnection of the hook from the chain can also be readily acquired by lifting the said bar and turning it at the proper angle or giving enough slack to the chain to disengage the hook, and the bicycle-chainis used by preferment, because the links thereof are flat and will not slip on the limb or support and wear or injury of the support will not ensue. The flexible or slack fastening provided by the chain permits the bar to have a turning and a swinging movement, and as both motions are desirable by many the swing under the improved construction is equipped to more fully meet the requirements of the user, It is also apparent that the suspending-bar may be attached to supports within reachable distance within doors or inside an inclosure by any other means and to correspond to the requirements of the swing.

In addition to the intermediate adjustable features of the suspending-bar, as explained, the same is also intended to be provided in many instances withlower adjustable means, and, as shown by Fig. 1, the lower extremity of the section 3 is formed with a series of vertically-alined openings 10, which are removably engaged by the upper angular end of a suspending-rod 11, loosely passing through an eye 12 on'the lower end of the said section 3 and having a lower terminal hook 13. A cage 14.15 loosely suspended on the hook 13 and comprises a lower seat-board 15, with opin the centerof a tie-'p1ate19,-fitted overthe upper ends of the rods and freely removable from the latter. The loop 18 is placed over the hook 13 at the lower end of the suspending-rod 11, and a firm disengageable attaching means for the cage is thus provided. It will be observed that after an initial adjustment of the suspending-bar has been made through the intermediate adjustable means the cage can be raised or lowered through the elevation or depression of thesaid suspending-rod 11, and it will also be understood that it is proposed to place any kind of seat or reclining device on the seat-board to accommodate the choice and comforts of the user. Furthermore, the parts are all separable and capable of being reduced to compact form for transportation or storage, and this feature of reduction is particularly important, as the device is thereby rendered convenient for storage in a vehicle or could be made up in a small bundle for manual conveyance for use at picnics or general transportation to other places for use by traveling parties.

To still further simplify the structure, it is also proposed at times to dispense with the intermediate adjusting means and construct the suspending-bar continuous, as shown by Fig. 3. and this change in form is intended to indicate that any form of bar may be used for this purpose. In this modified construction the lower suspending-rod 11 alone is used as the adjusting means, the lower extremity of the bar being formed with alined openings, as before explained.

Numerous other modifications could be illustrated and described fully within the scope of the invention, and it is proposed to make other changes in the size, proportions, and minor details within the purview of the invention.

In applying the chain to a limb or analogous support the hook end thereof is first thrown over the limb, so as to depend at the opposite side thereof, after which the rod is elevated, so as to loop the intermediate portion of the chain into the bill of the hook, and then the rod is pulled downwardly, so as to slip the chain through the hook in the manner of a slip-noose, thereby drawing the looped portion of the chain tightly upon the limb, with the hook at one side thereof. It

will thus be apparent that the chain may be This bar 20 is slightly rounded,-

quickly and conveniently applied to a support by the manipulation of the rod only.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is 1. A swing having a single rigid suspendingbar of elongated form provided with an upper eye, means held by said bar for supporting an occupant of the swing, anda chain secured to said eye and having a hook at its free end for engagement with a portion thereof.

2. A swing comprising a single suspendingbar, and a cage removably suspended from the lower extremity thereof and consisting of depending rods attached to a seat-board, an arched hanger removably secured in the upper portions of the said rods and formed with an upper loop, and a tie-plate for removably connecting the upper ends of the rods and having a central opening through which the hanger-loop extends.

3. A swing comprising an elongated suspending-bar having an upper flexible fastening means provided with a terminal hook to engage a portion of said means when the latter is disposed around a support, and means held by said bar for supportingan occupant of the swing.

4:. A swing comprising an elongated rigid suspending-bar made in two parts adj ustably connected and having an upper flexible member provided with a terminal hook to engage a portion of said member when the latter is disposed around a support, and means held by said bar for supporting an occupant of the swing.

5. A swing comprisingan elongated rigid suspending-bar having adjustable means, a flexible member connected to the upper portion of the bar and provided with a terminal hook to engage a portion of said member when the latter is disposed around a support, and means held by said bar for supporting an occupant of the swing.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto aflixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.

GEORGE SMILEY KERR.
