2 Claims. (Cl. 211-149)
This invention relates to an improved foldable
display bench, and its leading object is to provide
a bench which can be used for selling newspapers,
and which when in upright position will provide a
table surface on which newspapers or magazines
may be displayed, or other mechandise arranged
for display, and which may be folded'so that all
parts will lie ñat against each other.
With the above and other objects in view the
invention relates to certain new and useful con->
structions, combinations, and relations of parts,
clearly described in the following specification,
and fully illustrated in the drawing, in which:
Fig. 1 is a front elevation of the improved
folding bench, shown in an upright condition.
Fig. 2 is an an end view thereof, partly broken
away, for convenience of illustration.
Fig. 3 is a detail view of the rear corner por
tion of the bench, showing the manner in which
20 the leg is locked in open position.
Fig. 4 is an edge view, showing the complete
bench folded.
Referring to the drawing illustrating my in
vention, 5 designates the top or horizontal table
25 member of the bench. This member is equipped
on its opposite ends with cross cleats or reinforc
ing bars 6 and 1, shown in Fig. 4.
The cleats or bars 6 and ‘I are hingedly con
The leg member may project below the lower
edge of the vertical front board, or may be level
with the lower edge of the vertical front board.
When the bench is folded the legs will ñt in
the compartment or space between the inner sides C21
of the top board 5 and the vertical board I0, as
the combined thickness of the legs and their
hinges will be less than the combined thickness
of the paired cleats or bars on each end of the
bench. These legs also support the intermediate 10
portions of the boards 5 and I0, when the' bench
is folded, so that the boards 5 and I0 will not be
broken, when a number of benches are stacked or
piled on each other, or loaded with mechandise.
A folding magazine rack board I5 is hinged to 15
the rear top edge of the >table board 5, so as to
fold forwardly against the top board. This mag
azine and newspaper display board is provided
at its ends with cleats or bars I6 and I1, located
at the ends thereof, to which the connecting 20
hinges I B and I9 are secured. Supporting bars
or ledges 20 .and 2| are provided on this board
I5, being located one above the other.
` ,
Retaining wires 22 and 23 are arranged on this
board I5, the ends of which are secured to the bars
I 6 and I1. In some constructions this folding
magazine board may be omitted. This board can
be folded on the bench, even if magazines or
nected at 8 to the end cleats or bars 9 of the
30 front vertical member or board I0, these cleats or
bars being secured to the ends of the board I0.
The vertical front member or board I0 is se
newspapers, or other articles, are arranged on the
cured in upright position at approximately right
angles to the board or table member 5, by means
35 of the folding flat board legs II and I2. 'I'he
leg I I, shown in Fig. 3, is hinged to the inside of
the vertical board III, by the hinges IIa, so that
the leg will abut against the inner edges of the
adjacent cleats or bars 6 and 9, and bear against
board having bars on each end thereof on one
ledges thereof.
Having described my invention I claim:
1. A folding sales bench, consisting of a top
side ofthe board, a vertical front board having
bars on each end thereof also on one side thereof,
said vertical board being hinged to the top board
so that the end bars of the vertical board will
fold directly over and against the end bars of the
top board when the bench is collapsed, and leg
40 the inner surface or side of the horizontal board - board members hinged to the inner side of the 40
vertical board adjacent the end bars of the latter
and adapted to fold in open position against the
end bars of both boards.
2. The construction Vset forth in claim 1, in
45 means of the spring retainers I4, which are fixed . cluding a folding board hinged to the top board
to the inner side of the top board 5, and adapted and adapted to fold against the same, and pro
to latch the legs in place, when the legs are vided with longitudinalledges and wires for re
taining objects >on the ledges and provided with
shifted to open position.
The legs cannot then accidentally fold under end bars which engage the top board, whereby
said folding board may be folded against the top 50
50 the top member, and the weight of any news
papers, magazine or other articles upon the top board when loaded with flat objects.
member tends to hold the legs in upright open
5. The legs Il and I2 are providedwith cleats
or reinforcing bars I3, which carry the hinge
leaves attached to the legs.
The legs are retained in open positions, by
