AUTOMOBILE VANITY VISOR Filed March 22. 1934 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 patented Feb. 5, 1935 UNETED STATES PATENT GFFEQE 1 Claim.
The present invention relates to a. vanity visor designed as an added convenience for Women drivers and passengers and can be used also for rear seat riders for make up purposes rather than a sun visor, if conveniently located. In the front it can be used for both purposes.
An object of the invention is to provide a device of this nature which is exceedingly simple in its construction, inexpensive to manufacture, easy to manipulate and otherwise well adapted to the purpose for which it is designed.
With the above and numerous other objects in view as will appear as the description proceeds, the invention consists in. certain novel features of construction, and in the combination and arrangement of parts as will hereinafter be more fully described and claimed.
In the drawings:
Figure 1 is an elevation of the device showing the same closed.
Figure 2 is an end elevation thereof showing the tray in a horizontal position.
Figure 3 is a sectional view taken substantially on the line'3-3 of Figure 1.
Figure 4 is a front elevation of the device showing the tray in its down position, and
Figure 5 is an end elevation thereof.
Referring to the drawings in detail it will be seen that the numeral 5 denotes a rectangular plate or panel adapted to be disposed in a vertical plane conveniently in the automobile by suitable bracket structures 6 and 7 which are conventional. On the panel 5 is mounted a mirror 8. Numeral 9 denotes a tray swingably mounted on the lower edge of the panel 5 by suitable means 10 so that the tray may be swung to the closed position shown in Figure 1, to the horizontal position shown in Figure 2 or to the down vertical position shown in Figure 5. For holding the tray in the desired adjusted position I utilize a pair of slotted arms 11 and 12. The arm 11 is pivotally engaged as at 14 with the panel 5. The
arm 12 is pivotally engaged as at 15 with the tray 9. A bolt and nut 13 passes through the slotted arms and by tightening the nut the tray may be held in different adjusted positions as will be quite apparent. A spring clip fastener 16 is 5 mounted on the free edgeof the tray to engage over the top edge of the panel 5 when the device -is in closed position. In the tray is a pocket 17 adapted to hold various articles as illustrated in Figure 4. 10
It is thought that the construction, utility and advantages of this invention will now be quite apparent to those skilled in this art without a more detailed description thereof.
Changes in the details of construction may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention as hereinafter claimed.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new is:
A device of the class described comprising a 20 panel, supporting brackets connected to the upper end of the panel, a mirror carried by the panel,
a tray having the edge of one side wall thereof hingedly connected with the lower edge of the panel, latch means on the other side wall of the tray for engaging a part of the upper edge of the panel for holding the tray in covering position on the mirror carrying face of the panel, a bracket connected with said face of the panel adjacent one end of the mirror, a bracket connected with the bottom part of the tray adjacent one end thereof, a pair of arms pivoted at one end to the brackets, one arm having an elongated slot therein, a bolt carried by the other arm and passing through the slot and a nut on the bolt for holding the parts together in adjusted position, said arms permitting the tray to be held in a position depending from the panel or in a horizontal position extending outwardly from the bottom of the panel.
PAUL E. MICHAELIS.
