S. E. KOHL TOBOGGAN Filed Jan. 19, 92

Patented June 2, 1925.

UNITED STATES- PATENT OFFICE.

. TOBOGGAN.

Application filed January 19, 1925. Serial No. 3,349.

To all whom it 77mg concern:

Be it known that I, STANLEY E. KoHL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Santa Rosa, in the county of Sonoma and State of California, have invented new and useful Toboggans, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in toboggan slides, and has for its object to provide a simple and strong construction in which provision is made to prevent the toboggan or sled from leaving the track, making it absolutely safe to operate.

In carrying out this object, the toboggan is formed with a depending bracket which just clears the steel rails and is curved at right angles and projects under the track which prevents thetoboggan from leaving the track, except at the end where the toboggan is placed on the starting table or at the lower end Where it takes the water.

A starting table is included with a slot provided to receive each depending bracket, also a lever with ratchet prevents the toboggun from starting until the riders are ready and the water cleared of bathers.

Pockets in the sides of the toboggan for hand holds and flaring sides prevent the 00 cup-ants from falling or sliding off.

The invention will be best understood from a consideration of the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing forming part of this specification.

In the drawings 2- Fig. 1 is a. side elevation of slides showing two tracks.

Fig. 2 is an end elevation of the toboggan slides.

Fig. section of track.

Fig. #1 is a view in perspective of the toboggan.

Referring to the drawing in Fi 1, numbers 1 and 2 designate two inclined runways or toboggan slides which are supported by means of standards 3 and tower 4:. The in clined walk 5 and stair-s6 leads from the water to the top of the tower the most elevated portion of the runways from which the start is made over the toboggan slides.

the toboggau 3 is an end view of toboggan and a' The runways or slides 1 and 2, as shown in Fig. 3, comprise spaced longitudinal sillsand connected at intervals by means of transverse sills '7 which supports walking planks 8. Steel'channel tracks 9 are screwed or bolted to sills 1 and projecting over the edge of said sills which forms a slotfor the toooggan brackets 10 to slide under. as a proteztion against it leaving the tracks, brackets 10 also carries one end of wheel axle and is secured to the toboggan with through ribs 12 and 13. Bracket 11 carries bolts the outer end of wheel axle and is screwed or bolted to the sled like side members 14: and15. The wheel 16 revolving 011 an axle running through brackets 10 and 11 carries the toboggan 17 by running in the slot of the channel track 9 down the incline of either track 1 or track '2. I

The toboggan or sled is composed of two side members let and 15 curved at one end and three longitudinal rib runners 12, 13 and 18 secured to ends 19, 20 and 21, thus forming a frame which is floored across the bottom and a deck top of ribs 12, 13 and 18. Pockets or hand holds 22 are cut into runners 14 and 15 for bathers to hold on by, which prevents them from losing their. balance. Said pockets also provide a handhold for carrying the toboggan back up the incline 5 and stairs 6 as shown in Fig. l and Fig. 2.

Vi hat is claimed is A toboggan comprising a pair of sled like side members spaced with end strips which support longitudinal ribs, which support top and bottom floors running across the toboggan, axles mounted to said brackets which are bolted to sledlike side members and said longitudinal ribs, wheels on said axles and running in a channel steel track to prevent lateral displacement while said brackets extend below and under said channel track to prevent toboggan from jumping same at any point between starting table and water line.

In testimony that Iclaim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto airixed my signature.

STANLEY E. KoI-IL.
