UNITED FRANK BRADLEY, F 'IOIRDNTU, ONTARIO, CANADA.
Application filed. January 26, 1924.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that l, FRANK BRADLEY, a Subject of the King of Great Britain, and resident of S6 Pinewood Avenue, in the city of Toronto, in the Province of Ontario, in the Dominion of Canada, having invented certain new and useful Improvements in Mattresses, do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description 10 of the same.
The invention relates to improvements in mattresses as described in the present specification and shown in the acccompanying drawings that form part of the same.
The invention appertains to the novel construction and arrangement of parts by which a mattress composed of two connected sec tions may readily have each component section independently reversed for purposes of airing without changing the relative position of each section one with the other or necessitating releasing of their connections.
A distinctive feature of this invention is also provided in that the parts of this mattress can be conveniently folded one upon the other rendering it compact for handling and convenient for transportation.
Hitherto sectional mattresses have been proposed wherein provisions were made to unite the sections, in some instances the connection being in the form of a hinge, whilst in others means are provided to permit of the separation of the sections. Whilst these objects are attained in the present invention, it will be manifest that the additional features hereinbefore recounted together with the specific construction hereinafter described constitute definite improvements in the art.
Referring to the drawings, Figure l is a perspective view of the mattress embodying the invention.
Figure 2 is a view of one end of the mattress illustrating a section in the act of its being turned.
Like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in each figure throughout the drawings.
In the drawings, 1 and 2 denote two separate sections of a mattress, such sections extending longitudinally with each other and being of an equal width.
Serial No. 688,807.
The corresponding ends of the aforesaid sections are secured together by means that are entirely symmetrical and a description, therefore, of one of such sections will serve for both.
3 and .1- are pivots centrally aflixecl to the respective ends of two mattress sections. said pivots comprising pins 5 and 6 secured to the walls of the ends by means of comparatively large heads. Mounted upon each of these pins and 6 are rings 7 and 8 which are held thereon by disks 9 and 10 of a greater diameter.
1.1 is a strap passing through the rings 7 and 8 and having its termini connected one to the other by a buckle 12.
It will be manifest from the foregoing description that one mattress section is so connected to the other that same is free to swingthereabout, and also that by the central disposition of such connections each of such sections are free to rotate about their pivots. Thus, it is simply necessary to re verse first one section and then the other to achieve the complete turning of the mattress, thus involving less effort and saving considerable time.
What I claim is 1. A mattress comprising two sections ex tending longitudinally one with the other, and being of an equal width; pivots aflixed centrally of the ends of same, straps connecting together the pivots of corresponding section ends for the purpose of permitting reversal of each individual section without detaching one from the other, and means interposed. in said straps to adjust the length thereof.
2, A mattress comprising two sections extending longitudinallv one with the other, and being of an equal width; pivots afiixed centrally of the ends of same, straps connecting together the pivots of corresponding sections ends for the purpose of permitting reversal of each individual section without detaching one from the other, and buckles interposed in said straps to adjust the length thereof.
3. A. mattress comprising two sections extending longitudinally one with the other and being of an equal width, pins afiixed centrally of the ends of s m rings mounted Signed at Toronto, Ontario, Canada this 16th day of January, 1924.
