UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

BERTRAND E. BEYER, OF PATERSON, NEW JERSEY, ASSIGNOR OF ONE-HALF TO WILLIAM MOLENAAR, 0F PA'IERSON, NEW JERSEY.

ADJUSTABLE BRACKET FOR FURNITURE AND THE LIKE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Dec. 27, 1910.

Application filed May 24, 1909. Serial No. 497,861.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, BERTRAND E. BEYER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Paterson, in the county of Passaic and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Adjustable Brackets for Furniture and the Like; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of th1s specification.

This invention relates to an adjustment for the backs of chairs, and is particularly adapted for the style of chair known as a Morris chair Where the back is hinged to the seat at the back of the seat, and is adjustable in its downward swinging relation with the seat to suit the convenience of the user.

The invention provides for an arm swinging in pivotal relation to the body portion of the chair, and having its other end in sliding relation with the back of the chair and also having means for securing the sliding member on the back of the chair in its adjusted positions.

The invention is further designed to pro vicle means for allowing a free swinging of the chair upward without any interruption but a locking of the chair when it is at tempted to draw it backward so that the chair is adjusted in one direction without any manual manipulation of the adjusting features, but on the return the adjusting means must be released.

The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which Figure 1 is a side view of a chair equipped with my improved adjusting device, the adjusting device and the back of the chair being shown in dotted outline in a lowered position. Fig. 2 is a rear view of the chair. Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section of a sliding member, and Fig. 4 is a face view thereof.

The chair consists of a body portion 10 which supports the seat, and in sliding relation thereto is the back 11 which is secured by suitable hinges 12 so that the back can swing backward and downward in its relation to the seat. A bracket 13 is fastened to the body portion, being preferably made of one sheet of metal cut out to form the cars 14 which are secured by screws or like means to the back of the body portion and are bent into parallel wings 15, between the wings passing a bolt or rivet 16 in which is secured one end of a link 17, the link being pivotally arranged; on the pin 16. To the back of the chair is secured a rod 18, the rod being arranged parallel with the back 11 and being secured at its-two ends by suitable plates 19. On the rod is arranged a sliding member which consists of a casing 20 having wings 21 thereon, between which is fastened the other end of the link 17 so that when the back is lowered backward, the sliding member travels along the rod 18 as shown in dotted outline in Fig. 1. The casing 20 is formed with an open back and provides a casing, the ends 22 of which are perforated to permit the casing to freely slide on the rod 18. A pair of finger-pieces 23 and 24 project from the casing, being set therein through suitable slots, and one of the finger-pieces, such as 23, is insured against swingin by a pair of indentations 25 made in the sides of the member 20. The other finger-piece 24: can swing and is normally pressed so that the perforation in the finger-piece 24 engages the rod 18 to grip it, the pressing being done by a s rlng 26. \Vhen the back is swung upwarc the rod slides through the finger-pieces and through the swinging finger-piece 2 1, in a direction opposite to the pressure of the spring against the finger-piece, the pressure of the spring is overcome and the perforations in the finger-pieces and the ends of the casing are substantially in line. If however a weight is put on the back to force it backward the spring causes the end of the finger-piece 24 to grip the rod 18 and the more weight there is put on the back, and consequently on the rod, the tighter will the rod be bound in the sliding member. A pressure on the fingerpieces, tending to push them together, will cause the finger-piece 24 to be released from the rod 18, and then the chair back can be adjusted as desired.

Having thus described my invent-ion, what I claim is A chair comprising a body portion, a back arranged to swing on the body portion, a rod rod to lock the casing on the rod and to release the casing when the finger-pieces are operated, a bracket secured to the body portion, the bracket comprising a sheet of metal formed into ears arranged in line for securing the bracket to the body portion and being bent to form projecting Wings integral With the ears, the ears being stamped from the Wings, and a link pivoted on one end between the Wings and pivoted on its other 10 end to the casing. In testimony, that I claim the foregoing,

I have hereunto set my hand this 20th day of May, 1909.
