1 Claim. (Cl. 155-133)
This invention relates to portable seats, and hooks I! should be large enough to permit the

engagement of various thickness of material to
render the device universally applicable to all

“bleacher seats" and the like. The rear ends of
the base members III are drilled to accommodate
the rivets I! which secure the members III to
An object of the invention is the provision of
a device which may be used in cooperation with
ordinary “bleaoher seats" to form a comfortable
seat and to support the user's back.
Another object of the invention is the provision.
10 of a device of the character referred to which is
easily collapsible and foldable into a compact
and lightweight bundle which may be readily car
ried about.
Still another object of the invention is the pro
15 vision of a device which may be adapted to be
used upon the ground or at the beach to form a
comfortable seat.
A further object of the invention is the provi
sion of a device which will protect the user's
20 clothes from becoming soiled by sitting upon dirty
"bleacher seats” or upon the ground.
Other objects and advantages of the invention
will appear as the description proceeds.
The invention resides in the improved construc
tion of the portable seat, and in the combination
and arrangement of‘parts, the novelty oi.‘ which
will be particularly pointed out and distinctly
‘claimed hereinafter.
In the accompanying drawing, which consti
30 tutes part of my disclosure, I have fully and clear
ly illustrated a preferred embodiment of the in
vention, in which drawing:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of my portable seat
being used in conjunction with an ordinary
35 “bleacher seat”; and
Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the device shown
in Fig. 1, but adjusted to be used on the beach or
upon the ground.
Referring now more particularly to the draw
40 ing, it will be seen that in the embodiment here
in disclosed, my device is extremely simple in con
struction and comprises the base members iii, the
side members H and the supporting arms ii.
For the sake of strength and compactness, I pre
45 fer to construct the members i0, II, and H of
short tubular pieces, which may be chrome or
otherwise suitably plated to present an attractive
appearance. However, the above mentioned
the side members II. This construction permits
the rivets I! to act as pivots to enable the mem
bers l0 and H to be folded together. Intermedi
ate the ends of the base members iii are posi
tioned the loops l6 which are adjustably secured
in place by means of rivets iGa which pass
through holes in the members I ii.
The aforesaid loops l6 are arranged to engage
the hook-shaped lower ends I‘! of the supporting 15
members l2 to hold the side members ii in the
proper relative position with the base members
ill to form a comfortable seat. The loops [6 are
made large enough to permit the insertion of the
hooks i1 therethrough. The upper ends IQ of the 20
supporting arms II are pivotally secured to the
side members H by means of the rivets 19 to en
able them to'v be folded compactly together for
carrying purposes.
Lateral support for the portable seat is pro 25
vided by the two horizontal bars 20 and 2| which
are pivotally secured at their outer ends to the
upper extremities of the side members II by the
rivets 2,2. The inner ends of the bars 20 and 2|
are connected by means of the hinge 23 which 30
allows them to fold downwardly to enable the
entire seat to be packed into a compact bundle.
To prevent the seat from collapsing when in use,
the bars 20 and 2| are fastened together by any
suitable attachment such as the hook 24 and the 35
eye 25.
The back and the bottom of the portable seat
are covered by the fabric pieces 26 and 2'! respec
tively, which may be made of any satisfactory
material and which are sewed or otherwise suit
ably secured to the side members II and to the
base members Hi. The fabric piece 26, which
forms the back rest of the seat, is out with the
two upper strips 28 which are sewed around the
horizontal bars 20 and 2|. The loops thus formed 45
around the aforesaid bars are free to move along
the bars to prevent binding and tearing of the
material when the seat is folded. The fabric
members may be made of any suitable material . piece 2'! which forms the base of the seat is cut 50
as at 29- (Fig. 1) to permit unobstructed opera
and also in other shapes.
The base members l0 are bent downwardly tion of the thigh n and the rings Is.
An advantageous feature of my invention re
and rearwardly at their front ends to form the
hook-like extensions ii, the latter being adapted
to engage the front edge of the bleacher seat ll
55 (Fig. 1) to hold the'portable seat in place. The
sides in the eise with which the portable seat may
be adaphted‘?' serve either as an auxiliary bleach
er seat‘onas a ground or beach seat. The lat
ter adaptation is shown in elevation in Fla. 2 and
hereinafter described.

are pivotally fastened to the side members ii,
backwardly, and rest their lower extremities i1
upon the around. By varyins the position of
the arms II, the back oi! the seat may be adjusted
to any desired inclination to suit the individual
user. when beina used on the beach or on sandy
or soft soil, the hook-shaped forward ends ll 01'
the base members ll may be pressed into the
around 3| as shown in Fla. 2 and serves as an
chors. Likewise the lower ends I‘! of the arms
15 I! should be pushed into the around 30 to hold
them in place.
As a around seat my device has numerous valu
able advantages, includina comfort, cleanliness,
protection from the damp around and many
20 others.
The ease with which my portable seat may be
set up, and taken down and folded toaether, ren
der it invaluable to spectators at outdoor events.
when folded, the seat occupies a minimum of
space and may be easily carried about from place
to place. To told the seat, the user need only
unfasten the attachment 2! and told the bars 2.
and II downward and toaether. This also per

allel to the members ll. 'lhe protrudina fabric
pieces 20 and 21 may then be neatly rolled around
the members II, H, II, II, and II and the seat
is in compact form for carryina.
Althouah I have herein disclosed a certain em 10
bodiment of the invention, it will be understood
that various modi?cations may be employed,
without violatina the spirit of the invention, all
oi which are intended to be within the scope of
the appended claim.
Having described my invention. what I claim
and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
In a leaiess seat includina a back rest and a
seat portion pivoted to each other. the combina
tion 01' side arms pivoted at one end to the side 20
members of said back rest and provided at the
