HAMNIOCK. I
Specication of Letters Patent.
Patented J an. 2.9, V1907.
Application led July 3,1905. Serial No. 268,091.
To @ZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, EMMANUEL FRANK PILLMAN, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Boston, in the county of Suffolk and State of l\/Iassachusetts, have invented a new and usefulv Improvement in Hammocks, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
My invention relates particularly to supporting-frames for that class of hammocks which accommodate an occupant in a sitting and in a reclining position; and the object of the invention is to provide a very simple frame on the order of a tripod and which occupies a substantially horizontal position in use above the hammock, which frame is provided with means for connecting it with the back and the front portions of the hammock and also with an overhead support.
A further purpose of the invention is to provide a frame of very simple and effective construction and one which can be quickly and conveniently set up and which?, furthermore, when not required can be compactly folded for storage and transportation.
The invention consists in the novel construction and combination of the several parts, as will be hereinafter fully set forth, and pointed out in the claims.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in both gures.
Figure l is a front elevation of the frame and a hammock to which it is applied, and Fig. 2 is a plan view of the same. v
The hammock B is of that type which has a horizontal seat-section b and a back-section b', the back-section being provided at its top with a bar 25.
The supporting-frame A for the hammock comprises two carrying-bars l0a and 11a of equal length and having their ends down-` wardly curved and provided with hook terminals 13a and 14a. These carrying-bars 10a and 11a are crossed and pivotally connected between their centers and rear ends, as is shown at 15a, and the forward ends of the carrying-bars 1()a and 11*L are detachably connected with the forward end portions of the seat-section b of the hammock by chains or cables 28a and 29ab or their equivalents, while the rear ends of the carrying-bars l0 and 11a are connected by chains or cables 26ab and 27a with the back bar 25 of the backsection b of the hammock, the connection being made at each side of the center of the said back bar, as is best shown in Fig. 1. A spreader-bar 16a is employed in connection with the carrying-bars 10a and 11a, the spreader-bar being located some distance above them and forward of their pivot, as is best shown in Fig. 2.. This spreader-bar 16a is pivotally connected at'its center with an overhead support O, as is shown at 30 in Fig. l, and is prevented from tilting by a washer 31, which is located between thesupport O and the spreader 16ct and around the pivotpost of the latter, as is shown in Fig. l. Rings 33 are secured to the ends of the spreader-bar 16?, and suspension-chains 34 are attached to the said rings 33 and to the carrying-bars 10a and 11aL between their pivot portions and their rear ends. Other suspension-chains 35 are also attached to the rings 33 but the suspension-chains 35 eX- tend forwardly and down to a connection with the forward portions of the said carryingbars 10a and 11a, as is particularly shown in Fig. 2. A chain 36 is usually carried from the forward portion of one carrying-bar to a corresponding portion of the other carrying-bar to prevent the said bars from spreading apart too far. Under this construction of frame and the manner in which the frame isconnected with the hammock the hammock can be swung around as on a pivot and a person can sit at the eXtreme outer end of the seat-section b of the hammock without tilting the opposing end.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patentl. A lhammock-support, comprising bars pivoted together at one side of their center Oflength and provided with means at their ends for attachment of hammock-cords7 a spreader-baradapted for connection with a support, and fieXible connections between each end of the spreader-bar and each of the pivoted bars.
2. A hammock-support, comprising bars pivoted together at one side of their center of length and provided with means at their ends for attachment of hammock-cords, a
IOO
spreader-bar adapted to be pivoted to a support, flexible connections between each end of the spreader-bar and each of the pivoted bars, and a connection between the longer ends of said pivoted bars.
3'. A hammock-support, comprising bars pivoted together at one side of their center In testimony whereof I have signed my of length and provided With hooks at their name to this speocaton in the presence of ends, a spreader-bar adapted to be pvoted two subscribing Witnesses.
to a Support, Hexible connections between f EMMANUEL FRANK PILLMAN. 5 each end of the spreader-bar and each of the tnesses:
pvoted bars, and a eXble connection bel GEO. L. HUNTUP,
tween the longer ends of the said pvoted bars. JOHN F. MILLER.
