(Cl. 55-10)
One of the objects of the present invention is
pins or bolts I6 to each of the sections i2 are
to provide a novel, improved and compact golf
similar rectangular blocks I'l. Rigidly secured
rake which is adapted to be collapsed or folded
to each of these blocks adjacent each of the
V so as to occupy a minimum space and when so
5"- collapsed can be conveniently carried in the golf
bag of a golfer so that when the same is unfolded
and extended it can be used for retrieving golf
balls from Water hazards or for leveling off sand
Another important object of the invention is
to provide a novel and improved form of a collapsible golf rake in which the teeth thereof are
adapted to be folded so as to occupy a -contiguous position with respect to the handle and in
15 addition thereto is provided with a telescopically
extensible handle for extending the length thereof.
inner edges thereof are rake teeth HS.
connected to each of the blocks I'I on each of 5
the sections I2 are connecting bars I9 by means
of bolts 2i). The inner ends` of each of these bars
I9 are pivotally connected by means of bolts 2l
to the iixed blocks I4 as clearly shown in Figs.
2 and 4 ci the drawing. Obviously upon an 10
actuation of each of the sections I2 about their
pivots II on the main section IG they will occupy
a position substantially parallel to each other as
clearly shown in Fig. 4 of the drawing. Se
cured to the center block I0’ by a stud 2i’ and 15
a rivet 22' is a bracket 22 which is pivotally se
cured by means of a bolt 23 to a mainltubular
These and other objects are accomplished by
providing an arrangement of the Various parts
20 in the manner hereinafter described and particularlypointed out in the appended claims.
Referring tol the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a perspective View of my improved
golf rake;
handle section 24. Secured to the upper end of
the main handle section 24_is a sleeve 25 which
is provided with an internal annular ñange 2@ 20
which is adapted to engage an external annular
flange 21 formed on the inner end of a telescop»
ing shaft 28 which is telescopically mounted
Within the main or tubular shaft 24 as clearly
Fig. 2 is a cross sectional View taken on the
line 2-2 in Fig. l;
Fig. 3 is a cross sectional View taken on the
line 3-3 in Fig. 2 showing the manner in which
all of the teeth may be folded in dotted line
30 position with respect to the handle;
Fig. 4 is an enlarged fragmentary view showing
the manner in which all the teeth of the rake
as well as the pivoted sections thereof are col~
shown in Figs. 1 and 5i of the drawing. The 25
upper end of the shaft 26 is provided with a han
dle 29. Adjacent the inner end of the handle 2t
is a threaded section as shown at 30 which in
turn is adapted to engage the internal threaded
portion 3| of the sleeve 25 for securing the ex- 30
tension in compact or collapsed form as shown
in the full line in Fig. 1 of the drawing. If the
operator is desirous of extending the length of
lapsed or folded in compact forni so as to as35 sume a position substantially parallel to the
the handle, these sections are unscrewed from
one another and extended as shown in the dotted 35
main section of the handle;
Fig. 5 is a fragmentary detailed View partly
in cross section illustrating the construction of
the telescoping handle; and
Fig. 6 is an enlarged fragmentary top plan View
of the center rake section.
In illustrating one form of my invention I have
line position of Fig. l.
Summarizing the operation of my improved
goli rake, l-et us assume that the rake is in the
operative or extended position shown in dotted
lines in Fig. l. When in this position the handle 40
may be collapsed in the manner previously de
scribed by telescopically sliding the extended
shown the same as comprising a center or main
raking section, generally indicated by the refer45 ence character Il). Pivotally connected to the
main or center section I0 by means. of bolts II
are outer or supplemental raking sections I2.
The main section it comprises a prism-like center block It’ to the opposite sides of which are
50 secured, by means of rivets I3, rectangular plates
Secured against the opposite ends of the block
l0' by means of the bolts il are rectangular
blocks I4 to which are rigidly Secured the inner
55 rake teeth I5. Pivotally secured by means of
handle portion into the main or tubular section
24 and secured in position by screwing the
threaded portion 3U into the threaded portion 40
3| of the sleeve 25. The rake head may be folded
by actuating the sections I2 about their respec
tive pivots I3 on the main section It so as to
assume the position shown in Fig. 4, after which,
the main section may be actuated about its pivot 50
23 from the full line position shown in Fig. 3
to the dotted line position shown in the same fig~
ure so that the sections I2 as Well as the teeth
of the rake extend in substantial parall-elism
With the tubular section of the handle. The rake 55
head assumes a compact form sof that a bag may
be placed around the collapsed rake sections and
the golf rake inserted in the golf bag of the
From the above description it will be readily
seen that I have not only provided a simple,
compact and easily manipulated golf rake and
one which assumes little more, if any, space than
an ordinary golf club so that th-e same may be
10 conveniently carried by a golfer for retrieving
his golf balls from Water hazards or for raking
the sand traps of the golf course.
While in the above speciñcation I have de
scribed one embodiment which my invention may
15 assume in practice, it Will, of course, be under
stood that the same is capable of modification
and that modification may be made without de
parting from the spirit and scope of the inven
tion as expressed in the following claims.
. What I claim is my invention and desire to
secure by Letters Patent is:
f l. A golf rake comprising a telescoping han
dle, `a main rake section having relatively sta
tionary teeth, pivoted to said handle, and sup
25 plemental sections pivoted to said main section
and having a plurality of pivoted teeth, pivoted
to the outer end of said main section.
2. A Igolf rake comprising a telescoping han
dle, a main section pivoted to said handle and
foldab'le With respect thereto, rake teeth secured 5
to said main section, outer rake sections pivoted
toy land adapted to be folded With respect to said
main section, andy pivoted teeth carried by said
outer sections and adapted to be folded in par
allelism with respect to said handle.
3. A golf rake comprising a tubular handle, a
telescoping extension mounted in said tubular
handle, a main rake section pivoted to one end
of said tubular handle, spaced apart teeth fixed
to said main section, supplemental outer sections 15
pivoted to said main section, pivoted teeth
mounted on each of said outer sections, bars op
eratively connecting all of said pivoted teeth with
said main section whereby said outer sections
may be folded with respect toÁ said main section
and said main section folded With respect to said
tubular handle for extending said section and
said teeth in parallelism With said handle.
