;lVly invention relates to "reel seats for ?shing
irods'f‘andlmom particularly ‘to that'type disclosed
by-the patent to Ralph W. Miller, -No. 2,027,243,
pate'nted‘January '7, 1936.,

‘ The‘inainobjects of‘my invention are:
" ‘1st, toprovide-a reel seatfor ?shing rods hav
ing improved means for accurately adjusting the
“effective-spacing oflthe reel‘seat parts to accom~
modate reel seat‘plates of di?erent sizes.
2nd, to provide a reel seat for ?shing rods
"which is 5111113162116. economical in its parts and
rvery'ref?cient and .‘effective in operation.
Objects pertaining to details and economies of
‘my invention will de?nitely 'appearirom thede
scription to ‘follow. ' The‘invention is de?ned in
the claims.

flange, I4 being externally knurled to facilitate
the manipulation thereof. .
‘
The links 8 are provided with out turned end
tongues ['6, l6 coacting with the groove 15, so
that the nut I3 is free to be rotated to adjust '5
the longitudinal position of the clamp ll) there
under. Thus, the'effective spacing between the
clamps'? and I0 may be nicely adjusted by rotat
ing .the'nut I3 to accommodate reel seat'plates of
different lengths, as shown by Fig. 6.

Once the e?ective spacing between the clamps is
adjusted for a certain reel seat plate‘, the lever
‘B may beoperated to open and ‘close the clamps to
properly release and engage the reel seat plate,
.as desired,‘the lever 6 and links 8 providing a lock- 715
ing toggle "for effectively ‘holding the reel seat
‘plate in’place.” '
‘A structure which embodies the features of my
As' 'indi‘c'ate'd in dotted lines in Fig. 1, the
invention is'clearly illustrated‘ in the accompany- ‘ ‘lever 5 maybe pulled to the dotted line position

Referring to the ‘drawing, l. is a ?shing rod
member adapted to receive ‘the seat plate 2 of a
.reel .3, the rod member being provided with
spaced'longitudinal ribs 4 ‘between which the reel
seat plate ?ts. A stationary clamp 5 is adapted
to receive one end of the reel seat plate. . To the
40 stationary clampvis pivoted a U-shaped lever ‘6
having its arms pivoted ‘at ‘I to opposite sides of
i the clamp. , Links 8,8 are disposed at opposite
sides .of the rod member and are pivotally‘con
nected at 9 to the ends of the lever arms.

gage the other end of the reel seat plate 2‘, this
dotted‘line position. This shifts the nut l3 and
the clamp ID to the left and continued movement
‘of, the several parts causes‘the nut and the clamp
.toas‘sume their dotted line positions of Fig. l.
It‘will be ‘appreciated by those skilled in the .25
art that I provide’ improved means for adjusting
the clamps’to accurately accommodate reel seat
platesin a'wide range of sizes.‘ This is a highly
desirable‘ accomplishment owing to the strain to
‘which .the reel and rod vmember are subjected ‘
whenvin use. Further, my improvements are
simple and economical, and very ef?cient and ef
fective‘ for the purpose intended.

I have not attempted to illustrate or describe
‘o‘ther'embodiments or adaptations of my inven- Ti35
“tion, as it ‘is believed'that this ‘disclosure will en
able those skilled in the art to embody or adapt
thesame asr-may be .desired. ‘
