This invention relates to articles of furniture but more particularly to supporting frames for gliders or the like and an object is to produce a new and, improved frame of this character 5 which is simple and inexpensive to manufacture, can be conveniently assembled for use without the necessity of nuts, bolts or tools and has the novel features of construction and arrangement hereinafter described. The invention is shown by way of illustration in the accompanying drawing in which; Figure l is a perspective view of the glider supporting frame; 1 Figure 2 is an enlarged bottom plan view of a portion of the connecting rail and end frame, showing the brace arms in position of use; and Figure 3 is a vertical sectional view on the line 3-3 of Figure 1. The illustrated embodiment of the invention 20 comprises a glider supporting frame, having up right end frames l0 and H which are connected together by a connecting rail l2. It will be un derstood that the glider is supported by the end frames 10 and H upon hangers it which depend 25 from the upper portion of the end frames. Each end frame is made up of a single strip of bar metal to provide a horizontally disposed upper bar I4 and a horizontally disposed lower bar l5 and curved sides H5 and ill. Extending upwardly 30 from the inner side of the lower bar I5 is a ?ange l8 and secured centrally thereto, as by spot weld ing, is a supporting member 59, the upper end of which inclines inwardly and is notched at 29. Secured to the under side of the lower bar I5, 35 adjacent opposite ends thereof, are supporting knobs 2| which dispose the end frames slightly above the supporting surface. It will be under stood that the end frames ill and l I are similarly constructed and description of one will suffice. 40 The connecting rail I2 is preferably in the form of a metal tube or rod and is substantially U shaped in formation. The legs 22 of the rail are of a length substantially equal to the distance between the top bar it and the support l9 so that 45‘ opposite ends of the rail 12 in the region of the bends ?t into and are supported by the supports [9, the notch 28 being shaped to receive the (01. 5-129) to the under side of the rail l2. Formed on the free ends of the arms 24 and 25 are notches 21 which are adapted to slip over headed pins 28 on the under side of the lower bar it. As shown in Figure 2 the arms 24 and 25 extend at an angle 5 to the rail 12, one being disposed on each side thereof. Pivoted latches 29 connected to the un der side of the lower bar 15 are arranged adja cent each of the pins 28 so that when the notched portions 2'! are moved into engagement with their respective pins, the pivoted latch 23 can be swung against the arm to retain the parts in assembled position. When it is desired to disassemble the parts, it will be apparent that the latches 29 can be readily swung out of engagement with the 15 brace arms to permit the latter to be disengaged. From the above description it will be apparent that I have provided an exceedingly simple frame construction which can be inexpensively manu factured and which can be set up in a short time 20 by any unskilled person without the use of bolts, nuts or tools. When assembled the frame is sturdy and reliable and provides a satisfactory support for a glider or other similar article of furniture. , It is to be understood that changes may be made in details of construction and arrangement without departing from the spirit of the inven tion, especially as de?ned in the appended claims, What I claim as new and desire to secure by 30 Letters Patent is: 1. A glider supporting frame comprising a pair of laterally spaced upright end frames, each end frame having a transverse bar at the upper end thereof, a socket member in the under portion of 35 said bar, a saddle on the lower portion of each end frame, a substantially U-shaped tube hav ing the upper ends ?tting into and embraced by said socket members, another portion of said tube resting in the saddle of each frame, and a pair 40 of brace arms pivoted respectively to spaced por tions of the tube adjacent each end frame, and detachable fasteners for holding the opposite ends of said braces in engagement with said end frames. ‘ frame having a transverse bar at the upper end thereof, a socket member in the under portion l4, As indicated in Figure 3, the end of each leg 22 extends well into the socketed member 23 and which, in cooperation with the notched support, end frame, a substantially U-shaped tube having the upper ends ?tting into and embraced by said socket members, another portion of said tube resting in the saddle of each frame, braces for militates against lateral displacement between the end frames a pair of arms 24 and 25 have a com~ mon pivot 26 at their inner ends and are attached 45 2. A glider supporting frame comprising a pair of laterally spaced upright end frames, each end same. The extreme upper ends of the legs 22 ?t respectively into socketed members 23 which are 50 suitably secured to the underside of the top rail 65 end frames and the connecting rail l2. For bracing the connecting rail and adjacent 25 of said bar, a saddle on the lower portion of each 50 connecting the tube to each end frame respec- 55 tively, and detachable fasteners for retaining said braces in operative position.
