APPLICATION 211.21) snrmu, 1909.
Patented June '7, 1910.
GEORGE G. DE MOSS, OF DE MOSS SPRINGS, OREGON, ASSIGNOR OF ONE-HALF TO HENRY S. DE MOSS, OF DE MOSS SPRINGS, OREGON.
TOURISTS BED.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed September 14, 1909.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, GEORGE Gr. DE Moss, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at De Moss Springs, in the county of Sherman and State of Oregon, have invented new and useful Improvements in Tourists Beds, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to tourists beds, and one of the principal objects of the same is to provide a bed which can be folded within a small compass and which can be quickly extended and set up for use.
Still another object of the invention is to provide a portable bed consisting of sectional inwardly folding side rails, folding feet or legs and a wire cloth or canvas top connected to the ends of the bed, said top or mattress being adapted to be folded around the side rails and ends of the bed when folded to form a small package which can be readily carried from place to place.
These and other objects may be attained by means of the construction illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which,
Figure 1 is a perspective view of a bed made in accordance with my invention and set up ready for use. Fig. 2 is a fragmentary side elevation of a portion of one of the side rails, showing the two sections pivotally connected together and held in position by a clasp. Fig. 3 is an end elevation of the bed with the legs extended partially and one of the braces disconnected. Fig. 4 is a top plan view of a corner brace shown in two positions. Fig. 5 is a transverse sectional view taken on the line 5--5 of Fig. 1.
Referring to the drawing, the numerals 1 and 2 designate the two sections of the side rails pivotally connected together by means of a bolt or pin 3. The sections 1 and 2 are each provided with outwardly turned flanges 1 and 5, the flanges 5 being inserted between the flanges 4 and the pin or bolt 3 extending through the flanges. To hold the side rails in extended position a wire clasp 6 is pivotally mounted upon the pin 3 and provided with outwardly extending feet 7 which engage registering holes in the members 1 and 2, as shown more particularly in Fig. 2. The central portions of the side rails are cut away, as shown at 8, said cut-away ortion being upon the underside of one o the side rails and upon the upper side of the opposite side rail, as shown in Fig. 5, the
purpose being to permit the sections to fold inwardly without interference one with the other. The ends of the side rail sections are pivoted upon pins connected to the end members 9. Legs 10 are pivoted at 11 to the end members 9, and braces 12 are pivoted at 13 to each of the end members, said braces being provided with slots 14:, and the legs 10 being provided with headed studs 15 projectin through said slots to permit the legs to be folded up or extended out, as shown in Fig. 3, guide pins 32 projecting from the legs 10 to engage the edges of the braces 12 and guide the parts in movement. Connected to the lower ends of the braces 12 are look members 16, said members being connected by hinges 17 to the braces 12.
In the ends of the lock members 16 slots 18 are formed providing hooks for engaging studs 19 on the inner sides of the side rail sections 1. A wire cloth or canvas top is secured to the end members 9 in any suitable manner. Corner braces are provided at the inside of the corners of the bed, said corner braces being shown in Fig. 4: and comprising a plate 21 hinged at 22 to the end member 9 and provided with a horizontal flange having a slot 23 therein. A plate 24 is hinged at 25 to the plate 21, and the outer end of said plate 24 is connected by a hinge 26 to the side rail section 1. A diagonal brace 27 is pivoted at 28 to the corner of the bedstead and is provided with a stud 29 which extends through the slot 23 in the plate 21, said brace being movable for the purpose of holding the corner brace extended or permitting the same to fold up with the members l and 9 lying in substantially parallel positions. Brackets 30 are pivoted to the corners of the bed and provided with binding screws 31 designed for the purpose of connecting a childs bed at the side of any other large bed.
In order to prevent the detachment of the members 16 from the studs 19 a button 33 is provided, said button being pivoted upon the members 16 to close the slots 18.
The operation of my invention may be briefly described as follows :To fold up the bed the clasps 6 are operated to withdraw the feet 7 from the sections 1 and 2, after which these sections are pushed inwardly upon the pivot 3, said sections being adapted to lie flat against the inner sides of the end members 1 with the canvas or wire cloth top 20 bulged outwardly. The legs 10 are then folded up fiat against the end members 9, and the top 20 is then rolled around the entire bed to form a comparatively small parcel which may be tied or strapped together if necessary. The bed can be quickly extended and set up for use.
From the foregoing it will be obvious that my port-able bed can be made of wood or metal, can be manufactured at comparatively low cost, can be quickly operated or set up and rolled within a small compass for carrying the same from place to place and provides a comfortable and easy bed.
I claim l. A tourists bed comprising side rails each including movably connected sections adapted to fold inwardly, end members to which the rails are connected, feet connected to the end members for folding upon the latter, braces for said feet, and a top connected to the end members and adapted to be rolled around the parts when folded, the respective side rail being similarly and oppositely formed to permit their folding toward each other without interference.
2. A portable bed comprising side rails made in sections and pivotally mounted together to fold inwardly, clasps for holding the side rails extended, end members to which the side rails are movably connected, legs pivoted to the end members, braces pivotally connected together and pivoted to the end members, said braces having slots therein, studs connected to the legs and extending through said slots, and lock members hinged to the ends of said braces and adapted to engage studs upon the side rail sections.
3. A portable bed comprising side rails each including pivotally connected sections, end members to which the rails are connected, folding legs pivoted to the end members, a flexible top or mattress, said side rails being cut away, one upon the underside and the other upon the upper side to permit the same to be folded inward without interference one with the other.
In testimony whereof I afliX my signature in presence of two witnesses.
GEORGE G. DE MOSS.
