Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented April 2o, 1909.
Application led May 23, 1908. Serial No. 434,592.
. To all whom tt may concern:
Be it known that. I, Ammin M J. Miiucii, a citizen of the United States, and resident of St. Louis, Missouri, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Telescopic Clothes-Poles, of which the following is a specification.-
This invention relates to improvements in telescopic clothes poles and consists in the novel arrangement., construction and conibination of parts as will be fully hereinafter described and claimed.
The object of my invention is to consti-net a clotlies-pole arranged in sections and telescopic in form, one section of the whole being buried in the ground, the others adjusted at any desirable height from the buried section. The saidpole when lowered being entirely'out of the way.
Figure 1 is a side view of my complete invention, in its extended position. Fig. 2 is a sectional. view of the same. Fig. 3 is a sectional view of the pole in its closed or collapsed position. Fig. 4 is a detail perspective Aview of the several parts in a partially extended position, and parts broken away showing its arrangement and construction.
Fig. 5 is a. horizontal sectional View of my invention when in its closed or collapsed position. Fig. 6 is a horizontal sectional view of' a modified form of one of the sections showing it provided. with a groove in the place of a slot.
In the construction of my invention,I provide a ground-member 7 provided at its bottoni end with a suitable cap or inclosure 8, .said ground member rovided near its top with an inwardly projecting pin 9. In the ground member is slidablymounted a member10 provided with an elongated slot. or groove 11, the lower end of said' slot or `groove terminatii g into an offset and in said slot or groove projects the pin 9 of the ground member. The said member. 10 is also provided near its top with an inwardly proyJecting pin 12.. In said member 10 is slidably `mounted a member 13 constructed in every detail similar to the member 10 and in the member 13 is slidably mounted the .top section14; its upper end provided with a cap 15 sup orting a ring or eye 16 into which the en ofl the clothes-line may be fastened as well .as permitting the operator to gras the same for removing it from its collapse position. Each of the members are slotted `ready for use.
with the exception of' the ground-member, the lower end of' .said slots terminating into an offset 1T into which the pins 12 project and support each member in its extended position; the construction and arrangement of the slots and pins being clearly shown 1n Fig. 4. i
The operation of my invention is as follows: The pole being composed of a plurality of members arranged to telescope one within the other, is buried in the ground as shown in Figs. 1 and 2 and when it is de- ,sired to elevate or extend the pole, the opv erator by means of the rin s 16 withdraws the first section 14 to the limit ofthe slot, then by turning it Slightly permits the odset in the slot to pass over the pin thereby retaining the section in a rigid extended position. Tlieoperator continues to elevate the-section bringing 'with it the member 13 until the limit of its slot end tliis member is' turned slightly until the in and offset in the slot contact holding t is member i'n a rigid extended position. The elevation is then continued until the member 13,1s raised Iand the operation of this is similarto the other tw'o and the pole is then in a position In lowering the saine, the operator manipulates the several sections in a reversed movement to that previously described.
This construction of a device may be used as flag-staff hitchin -post, or any other pur`\ pose found desirab e but the essential feature is that of a telescopic clothes-pole. l
As shown in Fig. 6, I show a modified form of section having a groove formed inthe member instead of a cut slot, theoperation, however, being similar in all respects.
Having fully described my invention, what I claim is:
A device of the class described comprising an outer imperforated tubular socket'rnember closed at the bottom; a plurality of slotted tubular members 4of varying .diameters arranged one to telescope within the other and all to telescope within the socket meinber,the slots having at their lower ends lan upwardly extending offset portion, each of said members with the exception of the upper one provided withV an inwardly projecting pin, each of the inclosed tu e to hold the said tube Aelevated when the pin 'is in engagement with in operating in the slot' the upturned. portion of the slot and a cap j` In testimony whereof, I have signed my mounted on the innermost tubularmember name to this specification,v in presence of two serving as a cover forV the socket member. subscribing Witnesses.
