IMPROVEIVIENT IN SHADE-STANDARDS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent N o. 1 76,965, dated May 2, 1876; application filed V February 28, 1876.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HENRY F. WALTON, of Woodman, in the county of Grant and State of Wisconsin, have invented a new and Improved Shade-Standard, of which the follow- My invention consists: of a vstandard for holding a shade or umbrella to protect the eyes from the light and the person from rain and wind, which has a joint at the base for lying down flat when not-,required for use; also, a joint for turning the shade around to any direction, and also a joint for shifting the Figure 1 is a sideelevatio'n of my improved shade standard. Fig. 2 is a sectional eleva- I tion.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.
A is the base, to be attached to the buggyseat, table, desk, or floor, above which is a said joint being provided with a snap-catch, (J, for fastening the standard D in the upright position. E is the revolvingjoint for turning the shade to any direction,which is contrived by fixing the part F so as to turn on the vertical spindle G. I. is the joint for inclining the shade in any direction. Itis contrived by jointing the beveled ends of sections F and J with a ball, K, and socket L, allowing the tightened up by nuts 0, to make the standard tight andv rigid. The joints E and I are both provided with a snap-catch, O, to fasten them in position; The base of the standard has projections setting out and in front of front line, so as not to be in way of the cushion of a wagon-seat. to allow the cushionto lie over it smoothly.
H avin gthus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- 1 In av shade supporter, the combination of parts A D F J, the first connected with second by a hinge, B, the second with the third by a swivel-joint, E, and the third connected with the fourth by spindles G N, held together by a joint that allows the part J to be obliqned, as and for the purpose specified.
