which is engageable with the forward end portion of the
chair arm for detachably securing said panel thereof.
This invention relates to an attachment particularly,
The clip 21) is generally C-shaped, as shown to advantage
although not necessarily, for lawn chairs of the vertically

Another very important object of the present invention
is to provide a table attachment for chairs of the afore
mentioned character which will maintain a level or hori

numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which:

At its lower end, the female section 31 of the telescopic
leg 29 terminates in a right angularly bent eye 33 having
secured therebeneath a resilient clip 34, which is also
similar to the clip 20, for detachably securing the lower
end of the leg 29 on the adjacent leg of the generally
U-shaped chair base 13. This is shown to advantage in
FIGURE 8 of the drawings. The upper end portion of
the male section 30 of the leg 29 is engaged in the
socket 28.
A coupling 35 connects the upper end portion of the
leg 29 to the rear end portion of the chair arm 15 on
which the panel 18 is mounted. The coupling 35 com
prises a sleeve 36 which is slidable on the upper end por
tion of the male section 30 of the leg 29. Mounted on the
sleeve 36 is an arm 37 (see FIGURE 6), said arm having
secured thereto a clip 38 which is engaged with the chair
arm 15. Thus, the leg 29 is connected to the chair arm
in a manner to permit vertical swinging movement of
50 said arm.
It is thought that the operation of use of the device will
be readily apparent from a consideration of the foregoing.
Brie?y, the device is expeditiously mounted on the chair
by simply snapping the resilient clamps or clips 21), 27, 34
of FIGURE 2; and
55 and 38 on the respective members of said chair. The
