1. KELLEY. ADJUSTABLE WHEELED RECEPTACLE FOR GOLF CLUBS.

ADJUSTABLE wHnELEn REGEPTACLE FOB, GOLF-CLUBS.
- To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I,'.JENN1E KELLEY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Adjustable Wheeled Receptacles for Golf-Clubs, of which the following 1s a specification.
The essential object of this invention is to provide a wheeled receptacle for golf clubs and the like, which receptacle is adapted to be transported from place to place by being pulled along while it rides upon its wheels,
thus dispensing with the necessity of carrying a heavy sack containing the clubs. The invention, moreover, provides a receptacle which can be placed in a substantially ver-' tical position with the open end upward, thus permitting the player to select the club required for any particular shot while the container remains in an elevated and therefore readily accessible position.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation of the invention when the receptacle is in upright position; Fig. 2 is a bottom plan view looking upwardly from below in Fig. 1; Fig. 3 is a detail-upon an enlarged. scale as compared with Fig. 1 of thepartsat the bottom of the receptacle and looking toward the left or in the direction of the arrow A, Fig. 1; and Fig. 4 is a detail of one of the devices adapted to hold the receptacle in upright or vertical position.
The receptacle 1 within which the clubs are adapted to be contained, is a substantially tubular member adapted tobe made of sheetmetal, fabric, or any other convenient material. The tube 1 is fastened to aring or band'2 at the top and to a similar band or ring 3 at the bottom, which members 2 and 3 are preferably made of metal or other relatively non-yielding material. Wheels 4 and 5 are fastened upon the axle 6, whichaxle is journaled in hubs 7 and 8. The hub 7 is secured to the downwardly-depending strap or lug 9, and the hub 8 to a similar strap or lug 10, the members 9 and 10 in turn being integrally united with or otherwise permanently secured. to the plate 11. Rivets 13 secure the plate 11 to another plate 14, which serves as a base upon which the bottomof the tubular container 1 is adapted to rest, and projecting'upwardly from the base plate 14 are clamping lugs'15 and 16 which are adapted to grasp the annular member 3.

i screw 17 with a squared-0E head 18 head or collar 23 is permanently secured upon said screw and normally engages the right-hand surface, Fig. 2, of the member t 22. When the screw 17 is rotated in one direction, therefore, the slide 20 will-be drawn toward the right, and the upwardly-projecting foot or clamping member 21 will be drawn tightly into engagement with the annular member 3, which said member 3 obviously will be clamped between the clamps 15, 16, and 21, and 'in this way the running gear will be secured to the bottom of the club-holding receptacle 1-. When the screw 17 is turned in the opposite direction, however, the running gear is unclamped and may be removed from the tubular receptacle 1. a
A. strut or struts 24 are provided,"same being preferably made-of metal or the like and shaped as best shown in Fig. 1. Each strut 24 is provided with a pointed end 25 and near the point is a stop 26. The upper end of each strut 24 is bent into a hooklike form 27 ,which hook being made resiliently will clamp the annular member 2. The pointed end 25 can be driven into the ground, its downward movement obviously being limited by the stop 26, and in this way the struts 24 will hold the tubular bag 1 in the position depicted in Fig. 1 of the drawings.
To one of the plates 11 or 14 the upwardly-projecting strap 28 is secured, which strap at its upper end'carries the ears 29 and 30. A. lever 31 provided with a pointed end, 32 is pivotally mounted upon the shaft or rod 33, which extends across the space between the ears 29 and 30. A spring 34 is riveted or bolted at 35 to the member 28 and said spring 34 engages and presses against the looplike end of the member 31 which encircles the rod or pintle 33. Adjacent the pointed end 32 is a stop 36 which limits the downward movement of the mem- I ber 31 when its pointed end 32 is forced into the ground as isidone when the user desires to have the receptacle elevated and at'rest. When the-user wishes to move the receptacle from one place to another, however, the
member 31 lifted out of the ground and 1 is swung upwardl to the dotted line posi-- tion, Fig. 1,111 w ich position member 31 will be retained because of the frictional en-- gagement' therewith of the spring 34.
When the user of the" receptacle is not moving around from place to place, the different parts assume the position shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings, but when the user wishes to move, the member 31 can be moved gear to any desired place or position and thence quickly setup again. Sundry I changes in the details of. construction may be made in an obvious manner without departing from the scope of the invention.
I claim as my invention The combination with a golf club receptacle comprising an attenuated tubular member, of a wheeled standard secured to .one end thereof, and means for maintaining the receptacle substantially upright upon said standard comprising a forward removable strut clamped to the upper end of the receptacle and'having a pointed lower end and an offset projection adjacent thereto, and a rear strut horizontally pivoted to the standard, having a pointed free end for insertion in the groundand'bearing a projection adjacent its point. In testimony whereof I have aflixed my signature.
