JAMES D. CAMPBELL AND WALTER T. TUCKER, or DUNCAN, OKLAHOMA.

,cooLme-F AN' ATTACHMENT FOR CUSHION SEATS. L

Application filed October 7, 1924. Serial Np. 742,191.

T 0 all 20 item it may concern:

Be it known that we, JAMES D. CAMPBELL! and WALTER T. TUCKER, citizens of the United States, residing at Duncan, in the county of Stephens and State of Oklahoma, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cooling-Fan Attachments for Cushion Seats, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in a cooling fan attachment for cushion seats, whereby the back of the occupant of the seat will be kept cool.

One of the important objects of the present invention is to provide a device of the above mentioned character, which is adapted to be used in conjunction with barber chairs and also in connection with the cushion seat of an automobile.

A still further object of the invention is to provide a device of the above mentioned character, which is so associated with the cushion seat, as to not cause any discomfort to the occupants thereof,'the device being simple in construction, inexpensive, strong and durable, and further well adapted for the purpose for which it is designated.

Other objects and advantages of this invention will become apparent during the course of the following description.

In the accompanying drawing, forming a part of this specification, and in which like numerals designate like parts throughout the same: 1

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the device embodying our invention, showing the same associated with a barbers chair.

Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view of the air distributor, showing the manner in which the same is associated with the rear portion of the seat cushion.

Figure 3 is a top plan view, and

Figure 4 is a side elevation showing the device used in conjunction with the seat cushion of an automobile, o

In the drawing, wherein for of illustration is shown the preferred embodiment of our invention, the numerall designates the air distributor, the same comthe purpose shown in Figures 1 and 3 of the drawings, the distributor casing is substantially of arcuate design. 1

When used in conjunction with the barber chair, the distributor casing is disposed at the rear of the seat cushion 4, the body of the distributor casing resting on the seat supporting frame 5, while the top of the easmg is slightly curved to conform to the curved edge of the seat cushion, and furthermore the top of the casing is disposed substantially flush with the upper edge of the Seat cushion, so that the occupant of the chair maybe seated therein in a comfortable posltion. Cooperating with the air distributor 1 is the casing 6, which is secured to the chair frame 5, at the rear thereof by the supporting brackets 7, a rotary fan 8 of any well known construction being supported in the casing. A flared nozzle 9 is secured to the casing 6 for communication with the fan 8, while,the smaller end of the nozzle is disposed through a suitable opening provided in the frame 5 and extends into the central portion of the bottom of the air distributor 1. This construction permits the air entering the casing 6 through the opening 10 to be forced out through ..the nozzle 9 and into the distributor 1, by means of the rotary fan, so that cool 'air may be forced out through the opening 3 in the top 2 of the distributor casing 1, causing the air to pass up the back of the occupant of the chair.

The cooling device is further adapted to be used in conjunction with the seat cushion of automobiles, and as is illustrated more clearly in Figure 4 of the drawing, the air distributor casing 1 is disposed at the rear of the seat cushion adjacent the backs of the seat, so that the occupants of the seat will have the full benefitof the air which is forced through te opening provided in the top of the distributor casing, in the manner as above described. A cooling device of the character above described is especially adapted to be used in connection with cash ions of automobiles, during the warmwea'ther and when the motor of the fan is in operation, a continuous flow of cool air will pass up the back of the occupant of the seat,- whereb a comfortable position may be maintained, and further preventing the clothes of the occupant of the seat from sticking to the back of the seat.

. The simplicity in which our cooling de vice is constructed enables the same to be readily and easily attached in position for stood that various changes in the size, shape,

and arrangement of parts may be resorted to, Without departing from the spirit of the invention and the scope of the appended claims.

Having thus described our invention,

what We claim is:

1. A device of the class described comprising in combination with a seat cushion, an air distributor supported at the rear thereof and conforming to the configuration of the seat cushion, said distributor comprising a casing, the top thereof belng provided With' a series of spaced air outlet openings, a nozzle having its upper end extending into the bottom of the air distributor casing, and a rotary fan comprising in combination with a seat cushion,

air air distributor supported at the rear thereof and conforming to the configurat-ion of the seat cushion, said distributor comprising a casing, the top thereof being provided with a series of spaced air outlet openings, a nozzle having its upper end eX tending into the bottom of the air distribu tor casing, a casing associated with the bot tom of the nozzle, said casing having air inlet openings provided therein, and a rotary fan mounted in the casing and communicating with the nozzle.

- In testimony 'Whereof we afiix our signatures.
