' Application filed m 29, 1924. Serial No. 728,865.
To all whom it may concern: Be it known that I,-PHILLIs FITCH, a citizen of the United States, residing at Dixon, in the county of Lee and State of Illinois, I have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Seat"'Attachments, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to table tops or desks adapted to be attached to the backs of seats such as used on motor cars or .railroad trains; and it consists in the novel construction and combination of the parts hereinafter fully described and claimed.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a portion of a seat provided with an attachment according to this invention. Fig. 2 is a side view of one of the hooks. Fig. 3 is a front view of the same. Fig. 4 is a side view of one of the brackets which support the table top. Fig. 5 is plan view of the bracket, showing one of the pockets in section. Two hooks 8 are provided for engaging with the back 9 of anyfisuitable seat, such as used on motor cars or .railroad trains.
Each hook is preferably formed of a loopshaped piece of'stout spring wire, and its end portions 10 are arranged parallel to each other and are secured in a pocket 12.
3 The pocket is preferably a flattened tube of thin sheet metal, but any other approved material may be used, and the pocket is pressed. against the back of the seat by the spring book. A socket 14 is formed in the pocket between the two end portions 10 of the spring hook.
The table top or desk 15 is of any convenient size and material, and it is supported in two loop-shaped brackets 16, 49 which are also formed of stout wires or rods of spring metal. The main portions of the loops extend around the table top, and their end portions 17 are bent downwardly at a right angle to their main portions, and are slid into the sockets 14:. The end portions 4 5 rounding the said end portions, a table top,
and brackets for supporting the table top provided with end portions which are slidable in the said pockets between the portions of the hooks.
2. An attachment for a seat as set forth in claim 1, the said .brackets beingformed of loops which extend around the table top at points between its ends.
3. An attachment for a seat, comprising two hooks havin vertically arranged pockets secured to t eir end portions, a table end top, and 100 -shaped brackets extending around the ta le top at points between its ends and having end portions arranged side by side, the two end portions ofthe brackets being slidable in the respective pockets, and the said pockets operating ,to contract the brackets on the table top to prevent the latter from slipping.
In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.
