Referring to the drawings:

constructed in accordance with the invention,
and illustrating the swing as supported from a ;
wall bracket.
Figure 2 is a front elevational view thereof.
Figure 3 is a plan view of the swing and the

a modi?ed form of seat, illustrating a back strap
as connected therewith.
Figure 8 is a fragmental detail view illustrating
the hand grip of the levers, this strap being
shown as connected thereto.
Referring to the drawing in detail, the support
ing bracket for the swing is indicated generally
by the reference character 5 and includes a rear
The bars ‘1 are connected by means of the
spaced bars [6 which are disposed in parallel
relation with respect to each other, as (clearly _
shown by Figure 3 of the drawings.
,Journaled in the bars I6 is a pivot pin l‘! to
which the upper end of the operating rod I8 is
pivotally connected. The lower end of the oper
ating rod extends to a point in proximity to the
operator’s seat, and is connected with the mem
ber l9, through the medium of the pivot pin 23,
the member l9 being formed with a cutout portion
in its end, to receive the lower end of the operat
ing rod l8. This member I9 is pivotally mounted
on the rod 2! that extends between the bars II,
the ends of the rod 2| being disposed in openings
formed in the bars.
Spacers 22 are disposed on the rod 2|, between
the member 19 and inner surfaces of the bars
H, to the end that the member l9 will be held
properly centered on the rod '2I and at the same
time, will be permitted to pivot freely on the
rod 2!.
Handles indicated at 23 are connected with the
member l9, and extend downwardly to positions
where they may be readily grasped by the per
son seated on the seat l3, to operate the swing.
As clearly shown by Figure 1 of the drawings,
the operating rod extends at an oblique angle
with respect to the bars I I, under normal condi
tions, and the member l9 extends at an oblique
angle with respect to the operating rod l8, so
that a pull on the handles 23, will tend to push
the lower ends of the bars ll forwardly.
In the form of the invention as illustrated by
sheet 2 of the drawings, the swing is shown as
supported by the supporting frame which includes
end members 25, each of which end members in
dles 45 and are provided with loops 41, which
encircle the wrist of the operator so that in the
event that the operator’s grip slips, the hands
of the operator will be held adjacent to the han
dles so that the handles may be again readily
gripped for operation.
As shown by Figure 7, the swing seat which is
indicated by the reference character 48, is sup

What is claimed is:

The lower ends of the cables 34, extend through
openings in the seat 35, where they are secured.
While the operating mechanism in this form
of the invention, is similar to the operating mech
