ANGELO PITTONI, 0F LYNBROOK, NEW YORK, ASSIGNOR T0 MANHATTAN-ROME COMPANY, BRANCH 0F ROME METALLIC IBEDSTEAD (30., 0F LONG ISLAND CITY, NEW YORK, A CORPORATION OF NEW YORK.

HAMMOCK STAND.

Application filed August 28, 1919. Serial No. 320,432.

form of my invention, reference may be had to the following specification and to the accompanying drawing, forming a part thereof, in which Fig. 1 is a side elevation of the stand;

Fig. 2 is a sectio; on line 2-2 and Fig. 3 a section on line 3-3 of Fig. 1; gig. 4 shows the corner joint from beneath an Fig. 5 shows it open. I

Referring to the drawing, A represents the ridge-pole of the stand which is provided at each end with two outspreading legs B and C. At the junction of the ridge-pole with each pair of legs is a two-part jointed clamp formed with tubular sockets D and E that receive the respective legs B and C, and two half-sockets G and H which enclose between the end of the ridge-pole. The two parts are pivoted together by a rivet R which also secures to the clamp a bracket K to the outer end of which the ridge-pole A. is hinged by a rivet P. By drawing together the legs B and C as shown in Fig. 5 the overhanging end of the ridge-pole A is freed from the grip of the clamp and the legs can then be turned up into a position parallel with the ridge-pole as shown by dotted lines in Fig. 1. The manipulation of this stand is extremely easy; it is neat in appearance and secure when extended for use.

What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. A hammock stand comprising a ridgepole. pairs of pivotally connected sockets having complemental seats shaped to embrace the ridge-pole, hinge brackets pivotally connected to the ridge-pole contiguous to the respective ends of the latter, each hinge bracket being secured to a pair of hinge sockets, and legs connected with said sockets.

2. A hammock stand comprising a ridge pole, hinge brackets pivotally connected to said ridge pole contiguous to the ends thereof, pairs of sockets having complementai seats shaped to embrace the ridge pole, pivot pins connecting the members of each pair of sockets and also securing said members to the respective hinge brackets, and legs connected with said sockets.

3. A hammock stand comprising a ridge pole and at each end of the pole a pair of -outspread legs with a two part clamp operated by the legs to grip the end of the ridge pole, and hinge brackets pivotally connected to the ridge-pole and each connected with one of said two-part clamps.

Signed at Long Island City, county of Queens, and State of New York, this 25th day of August, 1919.
