Abstract

An all-purpose table in which a removable support stand is attached to a support plate having a storing space therein, so that a height thereof is conveniently adjusted according to a user's preference, and that upon being stored, the table does not occupy an unnecessary space thereby improving spatial efficiency.

Description

Description

ALL-PURPOSE TABLE HAVING REMOVABLE SUPPORT

STAND

Technical Field

[1] The present invention relates to an all-purpose table, and more particularly, to an all- purpose table in which a removable support stand can be attached to ends thereof which are bent downwards. Background Art

[2] In general, a foldable table includes a rectangular support plate and foldable legs mounted to bottom corners of the support plate. In the use of the table, the foldable legs which have been folded back over the bottom corners of the support plate are unfolded and locked, and then the table is used while placing an object, such as food, a book, a computer or the like, on the support plate.

[3] However, since such a conventional table has foldable legs which are mounted to the bottom corners of the support plate, the mounting process is complex and thereby reduces productivity and a user cannot be sure it will be stable when used because of having a weak support force.

[4] Further, if the foldable legs are broken, the table itself cannot be used, or otherwise the broken legs have to be replaced, making it difficult to ensure reliable maintenance.

[5] In order to solve the above problems, the applicant proposed a portable table which was disclosed in Korea Utility Model Registration No. 353807 with Application No. 2004-9002.

[6] The disclosed portable table is configured such that a support plate is provided so as to form a receiving space below the support plate, so that opposite ends thereof come into contact with the ground, thereby increasing the supporting force. However, it also has problems in that level-adjustment is impossible and thus the use thereof is inconvenient, and that upon being stored, it occupies too much space, degrading its spatial efficiency. Disclosure of Invention

Technical Problem

[7] Accordingly, the present invention has been made keeping in mind the above problems occurring in the prior art, and an object of the present invention is to provide an all-purpose table in which a removable support stand is attached to a support plate having a storing space therein, so that a level thereof is conveniently adjusted according to a user's preference, and that upon being stored, it does not occupy an unnecessary space thereby improving spatial efficiency. Technical Solution

[8] In order to accomplish the above object of the present invention, in accordance with an aspect of the present invention, there is provided an all-purpose table including: a rectangular support plate, which is bent at opposite ends thereof to form a receiving space therebetween, the bent ends each having an inner fixing recess and a mounting hole perpendicular to the fixing recess; a support stand detachably attached to the opposite ends of the support plate and having a fixing protrusion, which is fitted into the fixing recess, on an upper portion thereof and a fixing hole provided in the fixing protrusion such that it is aligned with the mounting hole when the support stand is attached to the support plate; and a fixing member which detachably fixes the support plate and the fixing protrusion of the support stand, which is fitted into the fixing recess, via the mounting hole and the fixing hole.

Advantageous Effects

[9] According to the all-purpose table of the present invention, upon connection and disconnection between the support stand and the support plate, a level thereof is conveniently adjusted according to a user's preference, and upon being stored, it does not occupy an unnecessary space thereby improving spatial efficiency.

Mode for the Invention

[19] Reference will now be made in greater detail to a preferred embodiment of the invention, an example of which is illustrated in the accompanying drawings.

[20] FIG. 1 is an exploded perspective view of an all-purpose table according to the present invention, FIG. 2 a perspective view of the all-purpose table according to the present invention, and FIG. 3 is a cross-sectional view of the all-purpose table according to the present invention. [21] The all-purpose table includes a rectangular support plate 100, which is bent downwards at opposite ends of a rectangular body 110 thereof to form a receiving space 120 therebetween, the bent ends each having an inner fixing recess 130 and a mounting hole 140 perpendicular to the fixing recess 130, a support stand 200 detachably attached to the opposite ends of the rectangular body 110 of the support plate 100 and having a fixing protrusion 220, which is fitted into the fixing recess 130, on an upper portion of a support body 210 and a fixing hole 230 provided in the fixing protrusion 220 such that it is aligned with the mounting hole 140 when the support stand is attached to the support plate, and a fixing member 300 which detachably fixes the support plate 100 and the fixing protrusion 220 of the support stand 200, which is fitted into the fixing recess 130, via the mounting hole 140 and the fixing hole 230.

[22] The use of the all-purpose table will now be described. First, the support plate 100, the support stand 200, and the fixing member 300 are injection-molded. In this form, if it is intended to use only the support plate 100, the support plate 100 may be utilized as a teacup tray, for example.

[23] Meanwhile, if it is difficult to use the table for the reason that a level thereof is too low, the support stand 200 is mounted to the support plate 100. In this case, when the support body 210 of the support stand 200 is brought into close contact with opposite ends which are bent downwards from the rectangular body 110 of the support plate 100, the fixing protrusions 220 protruding upwards from the support body 210 come to be fitted into the fixing recesses 130 of the support plate 100 so that the mounting hole 140 and the fixing hole 230 of the fixing recess 130 and the fixing protrusion 220, respectively, are aligned with each other.

[24] Then, when the fixing member 300 is fitted into and fixed to the mounting hole 140 and the fixing hole 230, the support plate 100 is supported by the support stand 200, and the level of the support plate 100 rises from the bottom by the height of the support stand 200.

[25] Herein, while the support stand is fixed to the support plate by the fixing member

300, which is fitted into the mounting hole 140 and the fixing hole 230, the fixing means may be a hook and a loop, which are respectively formed in the support plate and the support stand, or vice versa.

[26] If it is intended to use the table with the support stand 200 mounted to the support plate 100, when the table is placed in front of a user, the support stand 200, which is mounted to the support plate 100, is brought into close contact with the bottom to thereby support the support plate 100. Then, the user can use the table with his/her legs stretching into the receiving space formed under the support plate 100.

[27] Further, it is possible to use the table as a reading board, a dinner table, a display desk, a dressing table, or the like.
