OF QHIQAGQJILIFNQISQR ATTACHMENT FOR BAGS FOR GOLF CLUBS Application filed July 6,
My present invention relates to the provision of attachments for bags for golf clubs and has for its object the provision of a simple and inexpensive attachment which, while in no way interfering with the normal and ordinary use of the bag, will strengthen the bag and will permit it to be stood up in vertical position for taking out and inserting clubs, and while the player is making a shot or stroke.
At present, unless a caddy is employed, the bag has to be held in one hand while the clubs are being removed from or introduced into the bag and laid down upon the course while the shot or play is being made. With my attachment both hands may be employed for removing and inserting the club, thereby facilitating the operation, and in an ordinary round of golf the laying down and picking up of the bag involves above two hundred operations, and also, if the course be wet, entails the wetting and soilure of the bag and hands, and is generally a messy proceeding.
I have accomplished the foregoing objects and results by means of the structure illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which- Fig. 1 is a fragmental central vertical section through the end of a golf club bag with my invention applied thereto.
Fig. 2 is a bottom plan view of the structure shown in Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is a perspective of the template and reinforcing disk, and
Fig. 4 is an elevation of a complete golf club bag with my invention applied thereto.
Similar reference characters refer to similar parts throughout the respective views.
The bottom, or permanently closed end of golf club bags, as they are now generally made, consists of a flanged disk, the disk portion whereof being centrally depressed. Such a disk is illustrated in Fig. 1 and designated with the reference character 6 to the flange 7 whereof the bottom of the bag is 1931. Serial No. 548,771.
usually riveted. The centralde ressed area of the disk is indicated by there erence character 8.
I provide a starlike spider bracket having arms 9 radiating from a central hub 10. The 5 central hub is centrally bored, asat 11, and this bore is tapped, for detachably associating With it the peg or pin 12, one end whereof is pointed, as at 13, and the other'end whereof is threaded to enter the tapped bore 11. The arms 9 are perforated, as at 14, for the passage .of securing rivets 15.
In order to facilitate the installation and assembly of the spider bracket with the depressed portion 8 of the disk I provide a disk I 16 which is bored to register with the holes 14 in the ends of the arms 9. This disk 16 serves as a template to bore the holes in the depressed-area 8 of the end of thegolf club bag, and in assembling the parts the rivets are placed through the holes in the disk 16 and the same placed on the end of an anvil over which the golf club bag is inverted. This easily facilitates the passage of the rivets through the holes-.14 in the depressed area 8. The spider bracket is then placed in the depressed area with the rivets 15- extending through the holes 14 in the arms and the heads of the rivets are riveted down in place. The I pin or peg 12 may be easily made sufficiently thin to enter any ordinary ground and I have found that a length of five and one-half inches of peg will dependably support a golf club bag filled with clubs. .When it is not desired to employ the peg, as when the golf club bag is being transported by train, or otherwise, the peg may be easily removed by unscrewing the same and placed in the ball pocket usually provided on golf club bags. I
Having described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. An attachment for golf club bags comprising a spider bracket centrally bored and tapped, the arms of which bracket being perforated for the passage of means for securing the same to a 01f club bag, and a leg member threaded or detachable assem ly with the tapped central bore of the spider bracket.
2. An attachment for golf club bags comprising a spider bracket centrally bored and tapped, the arms of which bracket being perforated for the passage of means for securing the same to a golf club bag, adisk having perforations registering with the perforations in the arms of said spiderbracket, and a peg member threaded for detachable assembly with the tapped central bore of the spider I GEORGE N PEDERSENL bracket.
