SLIP COVER FOR AUTOMOBILE SEATS Filed Jan. 27, 1938 INVENTOR.
Patented Dec. 3, 1940 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 1 Claim.
The invention disclosed herein relates to slip covers for automobiles and the like.
Special objects of the invention are to provide a practical and desirable seat cover, which will serve the further advantages of providing a general utility pocket on the back of the seat to which the cover is applied and a vanity kit or the like, accessible and conveniently located for use at the back of the seat. 1
Other objects of the invention and the novel features of construction, combinations and relations of parts by which the objects ar attained are set forth or will appear in the course of the following specification.
The drawing accompanying and forming part of the specification illustrates one practical commercial embodiment of the invention. The structure however, may be modified and changed in certain respects, all within the true intent and broad scope of the invention as hereinafter defined and broadly claimed.
Fig. 1 is a View of the slip cover as applied over the back of a front seat of an automobile.
Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional View of the cover substantially on the plane of line 2--2 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is a broken rear View showing th kit pocket opened up to expose contents such as toilet articles.
The body of the slip cover as indicated at 5, is shaped and constructed to fit neatly and closely down over the back of an automobile seat.
At the back of the cover there is formed a double pocket consisting of an inner utility pocket I, and an outer overlying kit pocket 8.
These two pockets may be formed as indicated by layers 9, ll], of suitable material stitched as at H, one over the other to the back of the cover. This row of stitching may be reinforced by suitable beading as indicated and similarly the upper edges of the pocket forming layers may bereinforced by beading l2, l3.
The inner pocket is of a size and shape to form a handy receptacle for road maps and other incidentals.
The, outer pocket is made up to form a vanity kit by equipping it with holders such as indicated at l4, l5, [6, IT, for combs, brushes, nail files, mirrors and the like. These holders as shown in Fig. 3, may be formed as small appropriately shaped open pockets secured on the back or outer face of the intermediate pocket partition 9. The arrangement shown is a convenient and practical one with the mirror pocket H, at the. bottom, the comb and nail file pockets l4,
it, at opposite sides and the brush compartment if), at the top, between the side compartments. 7 To expose the article holders and render the kit ready for instant use, the back or outer pocket panel [0, is preferably split from top to bottom; and the split edges connected by a slide fastener l8, or equivalent. In the closed condition indicated in Fig. 1, the toilet articles are all covered and concealed but they can be rendered instantly accessible by pulling down the slide fastener as indicated in Fig. 3, which permits the two flaps of the outer panel to swing open and expose the contained articles. In this open relation, the mirror may be left in its compartment, where it can be seen in using'the articles carried by the kit.
What is claimed is:
A double pocket structure for the back of an automobile'front seat slip cover, comprising in combination with the back of the slip cover which in position hangs down over the back of the front seat of the automobile, a panel attached about the lower portion and sides of the same to said back of said slip cover and forming therewith an open top pocket, article holding compartments on the outer face of said panel, a second panel secured over said first panel and forming in cooperation therewith a second open top pocket,
said second panel covering said article holding compartments on the outer face of said first panel and being split from the top substantially to the bottom of the same to provide flaps which will separate and drop downward to uncover and expose said article holding compartments and slide fastening means for securing the adjoining edges of said flaps together, said slide fastening means including a slide movable downward to drop the flaps and movable upward to draw the flaps together into position covering said article holding compartments.
