COMBINED HEAD AND ARM REST Filed May 24, 1938 I N VEN TOR.
Geo/ye Ii Brad 6A Z144 Wu AT NEYI Patented Feb. 13, 1940.
ApplicationMa-y 24,1938, Serial No. 209,799 4 Claims. 5(o1. 155-174) I v This invention relates .to a combined head and arm rest of a constructionreadily adapting it to use upon motor vehicle seats, chairs, etc., and
' companying drawing, wherein- Figure 1 is a front view of the device partly in it consists in 'the constructions, arrangements and combinations herein described andclaimed.
It is the purpose of the invention to provide a device which is readily installed upon the back of a seat, and in which the arm and head rests are adjustable as to height, the latter alsohaving adjustably connected links permitting posi- I tioning of the head rest at an angle affording the I greatest comfort. 7
Additional Objects adVantages and featuresof invention will be apparent from the following description, considered in conjunction with the acsection, with the arm rests removed.
Figure 2 is a side elevation, illustrating the arm and head rests. I v I Figure 3is a'front view, of the lower section ofthe frame, partly in: section.
Figure 4' is a'front view of the head rest, illustrating a cloth covering thereon.
Figure 5 is a detail of one of the adjustments employed in the links for securing adjustment of the headrest'.
Attention is f rst invited to Figures 1 and 2 01 the drawing,.wherein I have shown a-U-shaped' vbase frame I of tubular formation comprising upstanding'parallel leg portions II, telescopical- 1y receiving leg member's l2 of a U-shaped frame Intermediate of the bight portion of the frame 13, there is formed an upwardly (disposed head It upon one face of which there are provided a series of teeth I cooperable with teeth 16 of a link member H for adjustable support of a head rest'presently to be described. f v
The head rest l8 is formed in any. suitable manner, but as shown, consistsof a frame having'oppositely disposed loop members l9,'theouter por,
tions of which afford support fora cloth "or pa'dding 2i] (see Fig; 4), The cloth affords comfort to the head, absorbing shocks which maybe encountered while travelling in a motor vehicle The connection'between the v IT, 23, and the support arms 2| are identical and 55 as shown in Figure 5, each of the headed porv and may be securedin any approved manner;
The; frame It will include rearwardly directed support arms 2 l, apertured toreceive a-wing bolt 22.,of a link 23. The other end of the link 23 is headed and apertured toxreceive a wing bolt 24 carried by the link l1. T
ends of the links tions comprise teeth adapted'to'intermesh with teeth'. of the'other head, andheld in an adjusted relation by means of the wing nuts 22, 24 and 24, as the case may be, i I
Obviously, by looseningv the Wing nuts 22,- 24, and 2% the links if and 23 may be adjusted to various angles with respect to each other, and the Wr te."
frame it may also be adjusted to individual needs.
Arm rests 25 are adjustably supported upon each of the leg portions l I and inthe present instance, fhave illustrated a collar 26 for sup- 1y supporting an arm 28 the other end of which is pivotally connected to the rest 25 as at 29. The collars 2% and 2], are shown as compressible collars and by loosening of the 'screws' 30 of the collars, the frame 13 maybe vertically adjusted, the arm "28 adjusted to obtain the proper angle ofthe arm rest 25, and when the adjustments have been obtained tightening of the screws 30 willretain the" parts in adjusted positions.
As shown in Figure'3, the U-shaped frame ll mayinclude a cloth backing piece 3|, seamed at the ends to form tubular channels for reception of, the leg members I Land in order to accommo-' date the arms rests 25 the cloth will be cut away as at 32. The cloth 3| will be movable longitudinally of the legs to accommodatefadjustment of the collarsZfi andZl.
'It should benoted that the frame I3 is curved rearwardly as at 33 to'a'ccommodate the upper edge of the back of the seat and the bight portion u 34 of theframe if] is preferably soshaped as to rest flush upon the seat portion of'the vehicle. Thus, no further means of' attachment is required.
While'I have shown and described, a preferred construction, this is by way of illustration only, and I consider asmyown all such modifications in structure as-fairly fall" within the appended I claims.
" Iclaim: k
1. In combination, a U-shaped lower frame, a similarly shaped upper frame telescopically engaged with the first frame, a head on the upper. frame, a link member adjustably connected to the head, means for securing the link in adjusted p0- sition, a second link adjustably connected to the first link, a head rest adjustably connectedto second named link andarm members on the lower frame, said arms having contractible collars embracing the sides of the lower frame to secure the upper and lower frames together.
2 The structure of claim 1 in whichthe upper port of the rest 25 and a 1owercollar'21 pivotalframe is bent to rest upon the upper edge of the back rest of a motor vehicle. l
3. In combination, a lower U-shaped tubular frame, a similarly shaped upper frame having legs telescopically engaged with respective legs of the tubular frame, a circular head on the upper frame, said head having radially disposed teeth upon one side thereof, a link member having a circular head at each end thereof, one of said heads having teeth complemental to the teeth of the head on the upper frame, a second link member having a circular head at each end head rest, said head rest having rearwardly eic- I tended arms terminating in a circular head, said head having teeth complemental t0 ,the teethvof frame having a rearwardly curved portion adapted to engage the upper edge of a motor vehicle seat.
lJThe structure of claim 3 'invvhich adjustable arm rests are mounted uponthelower frame, I
said arm rests comprising compressible collars encircling the legs of the lower tubular frame.
