ALBERT KATZKE, OF ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA, ASSIGNOR OF ONE-HALE TO JACOB HAMMER, OF ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA.

COLLAPSIBLE BABY-CARRIAG E.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 699,186, dated May 6, 1902.

Application inea August 13,1901. serai No. 71,885. on model.)

carriages; and it consists in certain improvements in the construction thereof, as will be hereinafter fully described, and pointed out in the claims.

The object of the invention is to provide a lbaby-carriage or light vehicle which may be so folded as to be readily handled when collapsed.

The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, as follows:

Figurel shows a side elevation of the carriage, in position for use. Fig.`2 shows a plan view Of'thesame; Fig.'3, a side elevation of the vehicle collapsed; Fig. 4, aplan view of the same; Figs. 5 and t3, details of the central joint of the axle and locking mechanism therefor.

A A mark the main sections of the axle,

which are provided with a centrally-located4 joint ci. The outer ends of the axle are connected by the joint a' to an extension A', on which the wheels B are mounted. Extending upwardly from the extension A A are the uprights C, and jointed on .these uprights are the forwardly-extending frame-pieces D D and the joints c on the uprights C. The stops a2 limit the inward movement. Telescoping the frame-pieces D are the extension framepiees D', Which are connected to the uprights e, extending from the fork E, by means of the joints d. The wheel F is arranged in the fork D in the usual manner. Extending from the upper end of the 'upright C is the top framepiece D2. This is connected with the upright C by means ofthe joint c. It is fixed at its lower end by means of the connection CZ with the frame D. It is also provideda short distance above the frame D with a tubular piece d2, from which extends the upper extension frame-piece D3. This upper extension framepiece D3 is connected with the upright e by means of the joint d3, which allows a return of the upright e. Extendingforwardly from the center of the axle is a tubular guide A2, and extending into l this guide is a rod G. The rod G is rigidly connected at its forward end with the fork E, and when the axle A is brought to position for use the end of the rod G projects through the end of the guide A2. The rod is provided with a notch g, which is engaged by a catch g, fastened to a bracket A3 on the axle. (See Figs.'` 5 and 6.)

The joint a is of the ordinary hinge construction, Which permits of the axle being swung toward the rear; but the edges CL2 a coming in contact when the axle is in a forward position limit the forward movement to one which brings the parts A A in line.

When it is desired to fold the carriage, the' catch gf is removed,the axle swung toward the rear. This bringsthe wheels to the inner position. (Shown in Fig.' 4.),` "The joint c permits of the wheels being brought into parallel position when they are in their inner position, thus reducing the space'which they occupy. The joints d3 and CZ permit this folding action at the forward end of the triangular frame. The tubular guide A2 is of sufficient length to prevent its Withdrawal from the rod G. After the parts are folded if desired, they Amay be slipped back by the sliding extensionD' in the frame-piece D and the upper extension D3 through the tubular portion d2. The rod G slides through the tubular guide A2. It will be noted that the rod G maintains the forward Wheel in alinement.

Extending to the rear from the uprights C C is the seat-frame I-I. This is provided with the joint h, the axis of which-is preferably in a horizontal plane, and also the centrally-located joint h. Extending from the frame adjacent to the joint h is a rod H', which passes through an eye hin'a block h2, which is jointed by means of the bolt h5 on the bracket A3. A set-screw h4 is provided for locking the rod H in position. When the parts are brought to position for use, the rod H' supports the frame H and maintains it in a horizontal plane. The eye h3 is preferably larger than the rod I-I, so, if desired, the rod ICO may be `run through it as the frame H is folded.

Secured to the frame I-I any desirable collapsible seat may be attached, preferably of some iiexible fabric.

What I claim as new is-- 1. In a collapsible baby-carriage, the combination of the axle having the two parts A A, and joints, a a'; a forwardly-extending frame; a rod, G, connected with the forward end of the frame; and means for locking said rod with the axle to lock the axle in its open position.

2. In a collapsible baby-carriage, the coinbination with the axle having the parts A A, andjoint, a.; the extensions, A A and joints, a; the forwardly-extending frame jointed on the extension, A A; and means connected with the said frame for locking the axle in an open position.

3. In a collapsible baby-carriage, the combination of a jointed axle; a frame narrower at the front than at the rear; a joint between the axle and the frame sides and between said frame sides and the wheel-supporting devices at the front of the carriage; and said wheel-supporting devices.

4. In a collapsible baby-carriage, the combination of the axle, A A, having the joint, a; a tubular guide, A2; the extensions, A A; the uprights, C, on said extension; the upper and lower frame-pieces jointed on the npright; the fork, E; joints between said framepieces and the fork, E; and t-he rod, G, extending from the forkinto the tubular guide for locking the axle in an open position.

5. In a collapsible baby-carriage, the combination of a jointed axle; uprights extending from said axle; a seat-frame secured to said uprights having joints with horizontal axes at its connection with the uprights; and a joint having a horizontal axis lengthwise of the carriage in the seat-frame to permit the folding of the seat-frame by a movement of the parts in a downward direction.

6. In a collapsible baby-carriage, the combination of a jointed axle; uprights extending from said axle; a seat-frame secured to said uprights, having joints with horizontal axes at its connection with the uprights; a

joint having a horizontal axis lengthwise of the carriage in the seat-frame to permit the folding of the seat-frame by moving the parts in a downward direction; and means for locking the seat-frame in the upper position.

7. In a collapsible baby-carriage, the combination of a jointed axle; nprights extending from said axle; a seat-frame secured to said nprights having joints with horizontal axes at its connection with the uprights; a joint having a horizontal axis lengthwise of the carriage in the seat-frame to permit the folding of the seat-frame by moving the parts in a downward direction; a rod extending from the seat-frame to the axle; and means for locking said rod with the axle.

8. In a collapsible baby-carriage, the combination of the jointed axle, A A, with the extension, Al; a frame narrower at the front than at the axle; a front fork connected with the forward end of said frame; joints between the fork and the frame and between the axle and the frame; and means for telescoping the frame to contract the length of the vehicle.

9. In a collapsible baby-carriage, the combination of the axle having the parts, A A, with the joints, a; the joints, a a and extension, A A; the uprights, C C; the framepieces, D D, jointed on the uprights, C; the extension frame-pieces, D D', arranged to telescope the frame-pieces, D; the front fork and joint between the front fork and framepieces, D D; the upper frame-piece, D2, e, tending from the upright, C, to the frame, l; a joint between said frame-piece and the upright, C; the upper frame-piece, D3; telescoping means between the frame-pieces, D2 and D3; the joint, (Z3, between the frame portion, D3, and the fork; the seat-frame, I-I, secured to the upper end of the upright, C, and having joints permitting of its folding ina downward direction; and the rod, II', for supporting the seat-frame in an open position.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

ALBERT KATZKE.
