This linvention relates yto a folding .camp ends of the bar 14 and bar 10 and the ends bed and more particularly to a fol-ding of the vend member to permit the legs 112 frame for `use with camp bed-s. l which are pivotally ,connected,=as at 19, to

may be very compactly folded .and in which The 1freeenfds :of .the bars 14 haveintegrafl Ono-half of the frame may be foldedvk at fa ly secured thereto threaded bolts 20adapted time, thus enabling the folding opera-tion to to extend through openings `21. formed in the e performed by women or children.` vertical danges .of the end member .of the 65 1o A further object of the` invention is to other section when the sections are to be provide a device of this character which, in assembled. Upon `these flanges are mounted the assembled relation, Apro-vides means for nuts 22 "The sections areA assembled andthe tensioning a :supporting spring or canins. supporting element, lat :present disclosed as These and other .objects I attain by the a .canvas 123, is connected with the'endl -mem- 70 construction shown Lin the accompanying@ bers byinserting hooks 124 .carried by the drawing, wherein for the purpose 1of illusends ofthe canvas in openings 25 formed tration is shown a preferred embodiment lof in the inner edge :of the horizontal flange 18 my invention and wherein f of the `end member. This canvas serves to Figure 1 isa rplan view of a cot conhold'the .sections in assembled relation and 75 structed in accordance with my invention; may be tensioned by adjusting nuts 22 upon Figure 2 is a bottom plan view of one the bolts 20. of the sections of the cot frame in partially7 It will be obvious that a structure of this folded position; character may be very readily and cheaply Figure 3 is a similar view showing` the manufactured and will be durable and eiii- 80 section fully folded; cient in service. It will vfurthermore be ob- Figure 4 is an enlarged end elevation of vious that the construction hereinbefore one of the sections when in folded position; set forth iscapable of a certain range of igure 5 is an enlarged sectional view on change and modification without materially the line 5-5 of Figure 1. departing from the spirit of the invention 85 Referring now moreparticularly to the and I accordingly do not limit myself to drawing, the frame is formed in two secsuch specific structure except as hereinafter tions, each of which includes a side memclaimed. bei', generally designated at 10, an end mem- I claim :H ber 11 and two supporting legs 12. Each 1. A bed frame formed in t-wo sections 9o l0 consists of two angle-iron each including a side and an end member bars 13 and 14 pivotally connected at their of the frame and a pair of legs, the side meeting ends, as at l5, S0 that thc bal members being each formed with two pivot` may be swung beneath the upper or horially connected bars of different lengths, the zontal flange 16 of the b-ar 13. The end shorter bar being foldable upon the longer 95 member 11 consists of an angle-iron bar bar, the longer bar having its free end pivotpivotally connected to the bar 13, as at 17, ally connected to the end member at one end so that the bar 13 may be swung beneath thereof whereby the folded side member may the horizontal or upper flange 18 of the end be folded against they end member, said legs member. The bar forming the end member being pivoted to said end member and being 45 is of a length equal to the length of the bar likewise foldable thereagainst, the longer bar 13 ilus the length of one of the supporting' of the side frame being shorter than the end legs 12 with the addition of a slight amount member whereby space is provided at one for clearance while the bar 13 is of a length end of the end member for the reception of equal to the lengthof the bar 14 plus the one of said legs, the space between the free 105 length of a supporting leg with a similar end of the shorter bar and the pivoted end addition for clearance. Therefore, when of the longer bar affording a space for the the har 14 is folded upon the bar 13 and other of the legs when the folded side memthis bar 13 folded upon the end member ber is folded against the end member. to provide a flat rectangular structure of 2. A bed frame formed in two sections substantially the same size as the end memeach including a side and an end member of ber, sufficient space is provided between the the frame and a pair of legs, the side memfber Vand along said extension ber may be folded against the end member,

said legs being pivoted `to said end member and being likewise foldable thereagainst, the shorter bar of each side member' having an extension adapted to project through an opening formed in one end of the end member of the other section and means adjustable imum distance between the end members of the frame when in assembled relation.`

3. A bed frame formed in two sections each including a side and an end member of the frame and a pair of legs, the side members being eaoh formed with two pivotally connected bars of different lengths, the shorter bar being foldable upon the longer bar, the; longer bar having` its free end pivotally connected to the end member at one end thereof whereby the folded side member may be folded against the end member, said legs being pivoted to said end membeing likewise foldable thereagainst,

for regulating the min` neaaiee bars being each theend member in the folded relation thereof to provide a substantially A Ushaped housing within which the shorter/v bar of the side member is arranged.

4. A bed frame` formed in two sections each including a side and an end member of the frame and a pair of legs, the side members being each formed with two pivotally connected bars of different lengths, the shorter bai" being foldable upon `the longer bar, the longer bar having its free end pivotally eonneeted to the end member at one end thereof whereby the folded side member may be folded against the end member, said legs being pivoted tosaid end member and being likewise foldable thereagainst, the shorter bar of each side member having in its free end a threaded extension adapted to project through an opening formed inthe free end of the end men ber of the other seetion and anut adjustable along said exten sion for engagement with the inner face of the end member.

`In testimony whereof I hereunto aiix my Y signature.
