v or even more if necessary..
The canvas used on the 6 x 8 fraine is :preferably made in one-piece 6 2l wide and 28 3" long. The top of the canvas istuined 4over and sewed to form an upper casing.
Y vThe canvas casing is provided with slits adjacent thefpointswwhere the corners of the frame will be when the cabinet is assembled so as tofpe'rmit the top pipes tobe extended therethrough and connections .of the frame parts made. A strip of canvas about three inches wide and preferably th-e full lengt-li i ofthe extended cabinet cover is sewed on the Canvas Vabout four inches above its bottom edge` to form another casing through which the base pipes can be extended, and this casing is also provided with slits similar to the slits in the upper casing and'for similar purposes.
Y In Vassembling the Vcabinet the opei'ation consists of first securing the parts 1, 5 and 9 p together and then extending pipe k13 through its respective portion of the lower casing ofthe canvas and securing it to the T pipe 19; Then the parts 2,6 and 10 are assembled and secured to the free end of the pipe 13; .then pipe 14 is extended through its respec- =tiveportion of thelower casing and one end Vsecured to the T pipe 10.; then parts 3, 7 and `11 are assembledand secured to the free/end of ,thepipe4 14; then pipe 15 isextended through its respectivel portion of the'lower casing-gand oneend thereof secured to the T pipe l1; then parts'fi, 8 and12 Aare assemthen pipe 16Yis extended' through its respective portion ofthe lower casing and one end secured to the T pipe 12; lthen the nip-V ple 18 is secured to the T pipe 9, vandl then the nipple 18 and pipe 16 are joined by the pipe coupling 17. Then the upright or Vcorner post pipes 19, 20, 21 and 22 are secured to their respective T pipes 9, 10, 11 and 12, and sleeves 23, 24, 25 and 26. placed on their respective post. Then, the upper portion of the frame canvas including parts 28v to 40 inclusive with the cover connected thereto are assembledkin a manner similar to that employed in assembling .the lower frame. That is the upper corner elbow 27 and nipple are secured together andthe Y extension 5l of elbow 27 insertedinto the upper end of .post 19;'then the top pipe 28 is extended through its respective part Vof the upper casing and secured to 'thev elbow 27; then the corner elbow 29 is secured to the free end of pipe 28 and its extension 51 inserted into the upper endl of post 20 then pipes 3() and 32 areconnected by the Tppe 31 and inserted through their respective portion of the upper casing and the'free end ofV pipe 30 secured to the Velbon7 29; then corner elbow'33 issecured to the free end of pipe 32 and its extension 51 inserted into the upper end of post 21 ;`then pipe'34 is inserted through its respective portion of the upper casing and secured fto the elbow V33; then. elbow 35 is secured tothe free end, of pipe 34 and its extensionv 51 inserted into ythe upper end of post 22; then pipes36 and 38 are connected by theT pipe 37 y andin-V serted through their, respective portion of the upper casing and the free; end of pipe 36 connected to the elbow 35 ;jthen the coupling 39 is utilized yto connect the free end'of pipe 38 to the nipple 40.v Itis understooderth'at, I
as the upper portion of the frame is assembled the sleeves 23, 24, 25 'and 26 are screwed down so that the projections k51 on the corner elbow can be inserted into the upper 4ends of theirk respective corner posts 19, 20, 21 and 22 to give slack to the canvas.f
After the cabinet is assembled and the ends of the canvas are secured together by automobile curtain fasteners well understood in the art, the sleeves are screwed upwards to make the canvas taut as indicated can be done bythe position of parts inFigs. 4 and 5.
' The assembly of the ridge pole pipe 45- Y* and associated parts iswell understood in the Y art and is therefore not described in detail. Y i
flAny hind of a cot may be yused inside of the cabinet. AThe curtains shown;y in Fig. 1
hang rfrom the center to within one yfoot of the ground;
The central division of the curtain' peri mits eitherl part to'be moved back and forth on the curtainfro'd so thatfa perso-n may yexpose any part or all of theV body tothe suns some and awkward methods of shading that portionof the body which is not to be eX- posed, and also protects and shades the eyes and liead without use of covers, shades; or goggles.
