PATENT OF ICE.

FOOT-REST...

SPECIFICATION forming pm of Letters Patent No. 789 813, dated May 16, 1905. Application filed August 31,1904. stair No. 222,877.

To all whom it may concern.-

lie itltnown that 1. JOHN H. LHXGLRY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Des Plaines, in the county of (look andState of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful lmm-ovemeuts in Foot-Rests, of which the following is a specification.

This invention provides a novel construction of foot-rest; and the essential object. of the invention resides in a support of this class which maybe readily utilized as a stool and which is susceptible of advantageous adjustment as regards a position of the foot-rest, admitting of a horizontal or angular adjustment of this part to conform to the desires of the user in securing a restful position for the legs or feet. p v

For a full description of the invention and themerits thereof and alsotoacquireaknowledge of thedetailsof ctmstructitm of the means for effecting the result reference is to be had to the following description and accompanying drawings.

\Vhile the essential and characteristic features of the invention are susceptible of modification. still the preferred embodiment of the invention'is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view of the footrest embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is a vertical longitudinal sectional view of the invention. Fig. 3 is a side elevation showing the foot-rest in an adjusted position horizon tally disposed. Fig. i is a side elevation, foot-rest being shown adjusted in an inclined position. Fig.3) is a transverse sectional view on the line 5 5 of Fig. 3.

Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the following description and indicated in all the views of the drawings by the same reference characters.

.l n earryingoutthe invention a bottom frame 1 is provided and comprises the main support of the device. The bottom frame 1 is preferably mounted upon casters'or the. like in order to facilitate movement of the foot-rest along the floor from one place to another. The foot-rest is designated .2, and the same is directly carried by an adjustable frame 3, the latter having pivotal or hinged connection at the bottom frame 1 and the foot-rest 2.

one end with the bottom frame 1 and similar connectioi-i at the other end with the foot-rest 2. The ad ustmg-f rame 23 is located between adj'usting-t'rame is adapted to rest upon the frame 1 flush with the upper side of thesame to render the support compact and give it a more finished appearance. The foot-rest 2 and the frame 3 are each provided with the adjusting devices in the form of ratchet-bars 4, a pairof said bars being pendent from each of the aforesaid pa. ts. The ratchet-lmrs4 of the foot-rest 2 are rigidly attached at their Said uppetue'nds to a tran verse rod 5. carried by i said f oot-rest, the said rod 5 projecting a short distance from a side of the part .2. A suitable handle (3 is attached to the pro ecting end I of the rod 5. and movement of this handle is designed to actuate the ratchet-bars 4, carried by the foot-rest 2. so as to regulate the adjustment-of said bars.- the adjusting-frmne are likewise carried by a cross-rod T. mounted in the sides of said frame and rigidly attached to the ratchet-bars. An arm 8 extends from the cross-rod 7, preferably at some point between the ends thereof, and said arm is connected by a chain or any suitable flexible connection 9 with a springretracted bar 10. The bar 10 is arranged longitudinally of the support and projects from one end of the foot-rest, being provided with ahandle 11 for actuation thereof. By pulling upon handle 11' a longitudinal movement will be imparted to the rod 10, this ation of the handles 6 and 11 is designed to impart a' pivotal movement of the ratchet-bars, so that. saidbars may be disengaged readily 'from the respective. cross-rods 12 with which they cooperate, and the footsrest 2 may be thus quickly collapsed after same has been raised to an ascertained adjustment.

if desired, a weight 13 may be carried by an 7o The ratchet-bars of end, so as to elevate the ratchet-bars thereof, and when said bars are thus operated same will automatically engage the adjacent cross rod 12 and fix the foot'rest in the ascertained inclined position to which it may be adjusted.

The foot-rest 2 may be provided at one end with a ridge or enlargement l-t transversely thereof, which projecting from the'upper side of the foot-rest will prevent slipping of the feet therefrom when the foot-rest is in an inclined position.

If the operator wishes to elevate the footrest so as same is substantially horizontal and on a level with the chair on which he is'sitting, this may be quickly done by raising the adjusting-frame 3, thereby elevating the footrest. The foot-rest 2 when in a horizontal position will readily support the legs of the person using the same on a level with the chair-seat, this adjustment being very desirable and advantageous for this reason. The ratchetrbars 4, which are preferably used,'are

slotted horizontally, the ratchet-bars being arranged lengthwise of one side of the slot, as shown more clearly in the drawings.

It will be noted that the invention is very simply constructed, arrangement of the parts of the structure of the same being extremely desirable in securing a device of the class to K which my invention relates, and adapted for various adjustments and uses which have been hereinbefore enlarged upon.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is In a support of the class described, the com: bination of a bottom frame, a foot-rest mounted thereon, an adjusting-frame disposed between the foot-rest and the bottom frame and having pivotal connection at one-end with the foot-rest and at the other end with the bottom frame, ratchet-bars carried by the foot-rest and adjusting-frame for fixing the positions thereof, cross-rods rigidly attached to theratchet-bars aforesaid, a spring-retracttfl rod connected with the crossa'od of the ratchetbars carried by the ad justing-frame, a handle projected from the spring-retracted rod, and a handle projected from the cross-rod of the ratchet-bars of the foot-rest. In testimony whereof I aliix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

JOHN H. LONGLEY. [L. 5.] \Vitnesses: JOHAN S. \VA NCKE, JACOB S. SCHAFF.
