rumour. on? LUGGAGE cannma.

Application filed February 1, 102a. Serial 1%. anon.

The main objects of this invention are to provide a wheeled parcel or luggage carrier which is adapted to be knocked down into a compact form for storage or transportation,

may be quickly, erected, and when erected is strong and rigid.

A further object is to provide a parcel or luggage carrier embodying these features which is economical to produce and light.

in weight.

Objects relating to details and economies of my invention will appear from the descri tion to follow. T fine and pointed out in the claims.

A structure which is a preferred embodiment of my invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, forming a part of this application, in which:

Fig. 1 is a side elevation of my lmproved parcel carrier in-erected position.

Fig. 2 is a perspective view with the receptacle removed, the handle being partially broken away.

Fig. 3 is a plan view on line 3-3 of Fig. 1, the handle being broken away.

Fig. 4 is a side elevation with the receptacle omitted, showing the structure partially collapsed.

Fig. 5 is an enlarged detail sectlon on line 55 of Fig. 3, showing details of the handle supporting latch.

Fig. 6 is a detail section on line 6-6 of %n the drawing similarreference characters refer to similar parts throughout the several views. a

Referring to the drawing, I provide a bottom frame 1 which is mounted on the axle 2 provided with carrying wheels 3. Uprights designated, generally by the numeral 4 are collapsibly mounted on this axle, these uprights consisting of sections 5 and 6, the bottom sections being pivoted on the axle, the top sections being connected to the bottom sections by the ivot rod 7 which extends from one uprig t to the other constituting a brace and tie rod. When the sections are in their erected position, the stops 8 on the top sections engage the recesses 9 on the bottom sections.

The top frame 10 is mounted on pivots 11 carried by the top section of the uprights,

ends thereof to receive the cross piece'12 havinfiofiset arms at-the pivots 11 extend e invention is de-- ing between the uprights. This cross piece carries a handle 13 having a grip 14 at its upper end. 7

he frame 10 is provided with a latch 15 which is pivoted at 16 and notched or shouldered at 17 to engage the cross piece, zhereby holding the handle in erected posi- 1on.

o The uprights are braced or held in upright position by means of the braces designated generally by the numeral 18 and conslst ng of the bottom sections 19 and top sections 20, the bottom sections being pivoted to the bottofn frame 1 at" 21 and extended into legs 22 which coact with the wheels in supporting the structure in uprlght position.

The sections 20 are pivoted to the bottom sectlons 5 of the uprights at 23, the sections being pivotally connected to each other at 24:. Stops 25 on the sections 19 engaging notches 26 on the sections 20 hold the parts in erected position, the pivot 24 swinging past the plane through the pivots 21 and. 23 when the braces are extended. Similar braces consisting of the sections 27 and 28 are provided for supporting the top frame in its erected position.

The sections 27 are pivoted at 29 to the top sections 6 of the uprights while the sections 28 are pivoted at 30 to the frame.

The brace sections are connected by the pivots 31 and they are provided with stops as described for the upright braces.

' A flexible receptacle 32 of canvas or other suitable fabric is secured at its upper end to the top frame and at its lower end to the bottom frame, a cross bar- 33 being carried by the axle to which the rear bottom corner of the receptacle is connected.

This provides a structure which may be quickly erected or collapsed, is light in weight and when collapsed is compact so that it may be readily carried, for instance, to the market where it may be extended to receive the articles to be transported, the structure being especially designed for housewives, delivery boys and the like.
