WILLIAM J. DECKER, OF "new YORK, N. Y., ASSIGNOR TO HIMSELF AND JOHN J. LYDEGKER, or SAME PLACE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 274,730, dated March 27, 1883.
d Application filed December 22,1882. (No model.)
To all, whom it may concern Be it known that I, WILLIAM J. DECKER, of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Folding Chairs, of whichthe following is a full, clear, andexact description.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
Figure 1 is a perspective view of my improvement. Fig.2 is a sectional side elevation of the same. Fig. 3 is a rear elevation of a part of the same. Fig. 4 is asectional plan view of a part of the same, taken through the line .90 :r, Fig. 3. i
The object of this invention is to facilitate the storage and transportation of folding chairs,
A are two bars, which are connected at a little distance from their lower ends by a crossbar, B. The ends of the cross-bar B are secured in notches in the forward edges of the side bars, A, so that the forward side of the said cross-bar will be flush with the forward edges of the said side bars, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2. The upper ends of the bars A are connected by a cross-bar, O, the ends of which Y bars E are formed notches E to receive the cross-bar B, so that the bars E can be folded along the inner sides of the bars A, as shown in Fig. 2. The upper ends ofthe bars E enter recesses G in the forward corners of the seat-frame G, and are hinged to the said seatframe by screws H.
To the sides of the seat-frame G, at the rear corners of the said seat-frame, are swiveled, by
screws or bolts I, the slides J, which aremade in U form and of such a size as to receive and slide freely upon the upper parts of the bars With this construction the chair is folded' by'taking hold of the rear edge of the chairseat and drawing it upward, the slides J sliding up the bars A, and the bars E and seatframe Gr coming into position along the inner sides of the said bars A, as shown in Fig. 2. a recess, 0, being formed in the lower edge of the cross-bar O to receive the hand that draws the seat up into place. The chair is opened for use by taking hold of the forward edge of the seat-frame and drawing the said seat-frame forward and downward into the position shown in Fig. 1'.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is- I I. In a folding chair, the combination, with the seat-frame and the chair side bars, of the slides J, attached tothe rear corners of the' seat and sliding on the side bars of the back.
substantially as herein shown and described, whereby the chair can be readily folded and unfolded, as set forth.
2. In a folding chair, the combination, with the side bars, A, slides J, and seat-frame G, of the stops K, substantially as herein shown and described, whereby the downward movement of the slides will be limited and the seat supported in position for use, as set forth.
