ROLLER SKATE Fiat. 27, 1927 2 Sheets-Sheet 1 Aug. 21, 1928. 1,681,841

1 J. COHEN *3 ROLLER SKATE Filed Oct. 27. 1927 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Patented Aug. 21, 1928.



Application filed October 27, 1927. Serial No. 229,205.

This invention relates to roller skates and key carrying frame attachment therefor and it consists in the novel features hereinafter described and claimed.

An object of the invent-ion is to provide-in combination with a skate a frame-adapted to be applied thereto and having means for securelyretaining a key or wrench which is used upon the nuts and bolts of the skate when it is desired to shift or adjust the parts thereof.

lVith this object in view the skate frame includes upper and nether plates one of which is provided with abolt and the other wit-ha stud. Both of said plates are. provided with slots which receive the bolt and stud. A frame is carried by the stud and bolt at the undersurface of the nether plate and said frame is provided at one end with a stud and at its opposite end with a'recess. The key or wrench is provided. with a sleeve which is slidably mounted upon its handle and a Spring is housed in the sleeve and interposed between the end of the key and a cross pin carried by the sleeve and serves as means for normally holding the sleeve extended with relation to the handle of thekey. The key is provided at its end with a lug and when the key is positioned within the frame the said lug is received in the recess of the frame and the end of the sleeve receives the stud of the frame.

In the accompanying drawings Figure 1 is a side elevational view of a skate with the key frame and key applied;

Figure 2 is a perspective View of the key frame detached;

Figure 3 is an enlarged fragmentary longitudinal sectional view of the skate showing the key and key frame in elevation and parts in section;

Figure 4 is a horizontal sectional view of I the key frame and key showing the parts in engagement with each other;

Figure 5 is a similar view showing the key disconnected from the ends of the key frame;

Figure 6 is a transverse sectional view of the key cut on the line 66 of Figure 3.

The skate includes an upper plate 1 adapted to lie under the forward portion of the foot when the skate is applied and a nether plate 2 adapted to lie under the heel portion of the foot of the wearer. Said plates are provided with longitudinally disposed slots 3. The plate 2 is provided with a bolt 4 which passes through the slot of the plate 1. The

plate 1 is provided with a rivet 5 which passes through the slot of the plate 2. A nut 6 is screwed upon the lower end of the bolt 4 and serves as means for-securing a key frame (hereinafter to be described) to the under side of theplate 2.

The key frame consists of a strip 7 bent in the general form of a loop and provided with openings 8 and 9 for the reception of the bolt 4 andthe rivet 5 respectively. The frame 7 is provided at one end with a recess 10 and at its opposite end with an inwardly disposed stud 10'.

The key comprises a head 11 having at its sides recesses 12 adapted to receive the nut 6 hereinbefore referred to. The head 11 is provided at its forward end with a lug 13 adapted to be received in the recess 10. The key is provided with a non-circular handle 14 which is integrally joined with the head and a sleeve 15 is slidably mounted upon said handle. The sleeve is provided at its opposite sides with slots 16 which receive a cross pin 1'7 carried by the handle 14. The pin 17 is provided at one end with a lug 18 which is disposed opposite a lug 19 fixed upon the body of the sleeve. The lug 19 is attached to the sleeve by means of cross pins 20 and a spring 21 is housed within the sleeve and bears at one end against the end of the handle 14 and at its other end against the pins 20. The spring 21 is under tension with. a tendency to normally hold the sleeve at an extended position upon the handle 14:. The outer end of the sleeve 15 is open and is adapted to receive the stud 10.

When the key is being carried by the skate the parts are in the positions as shown in Figures 1, 3 and 4 of the drawings. When the key is removed from the skate the lugs 1.8 and 19 are grasped between the fingers and the lug 18 is moved to the position as shown in Figure 5 of the drawings whereby the spring 21 is compressed. This moves the sleeve 15 along the handle 14. and the lug 13 disengages the recess 10 and the end of the sleeve disengages the stud 10.

I claim 1. A skate comprising a frame having overlapping plates provided with bolt and slot connecting means, a frame having an opening adapted to receive the bolt and adapted to be positioned at the under side of the nether plate, said frame being provided at one end with a recess and at its opposite end with a stud and a key having a sleeve telescopically sleeve and at the other end against the handle and serving to normally hold the sleeve at an extended position with relation to the handle, said key having a lug adapted to enter said recess and the end of the sleeve adapted to receive said stud.

3. In combination with a frame adapted to be applied to a skate, a key having at itshead a lug adapted to engage the frame, a sleeve slidably mounted upon the handle of the key and provided with slots at its sides, a pin carried by the handle and passing through the slots of the sleeve, a lug mounted upon the sleeve, bolts passing through the slot and connected to said lug and a spring housed within the sleeve and hearing at one end against the handle and at its opposite end against one of said bolts.

4. I11 a roller skate having a body connecting front and rear wheels, a pair of spaced depending members carried by and upon the under face of the body, a skate key designed to be positioned between said members and comprising two loosely connected parts, and a resilient element connected to said parts and normally urging the same apart for engagement with and support by the members.

5. In a roller skate having a body portion connecting front and rear supporting wheels, spaced depending members carried by the body at the under side thereof, a skate key comprising a head portion and a telescoping two-part handle portion, resilient means normally acting to shift the two parts of said handle-to increase the length thereof, and

means associated with the opposing faces of 1 said depending members whereby the head and free end of the handle of said wrench maybe removably connected therewith and held in positionbeneath the body through the action ofsaid spring.

6. In a roller skate having a body connecting front and rear wheels, a supporting ele- 1 JAMES COHEN.
