THIRD SEAT FOR VEHICLES.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Tom BOND, Sr., a citizen of the
United States, residing at Dallas, in the county of
Dallas and State of Texas, have invented a new and

is a specification.
This invention relates to third or auxiliary seats for
vehicles and has for an object to provide a device of
the class embodying new and improved features of

A further object of the invention is to provide an
auxiliary seat having folding hooks for engagement
with the toe rail, folding end pieces and folding legs
15 to rest upon the flooring and support the side of the seat
opposite the hooks and which may be stored in small
space in the vehicle or elsewhere.
With these and' other objects in view, the present
invention consists in the combination and arrange-
20 ment of parts as will be hereinafter fully described,
shown in the accompanying drawings and particularly
pointed out in the appended claims, it being under-
stood that changes in the form proportions, size and
minor details may be made without departing from the
25 spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of this inven-
In the drawings: Figure 1 is a perspective view of

Figs. 1 and 2. Fig. 4 is a detail perspective view of
the folding hook for securing the seat upon the vehicle.
Like characters of reference indicate corresponding
parts in all of the figures of the drawings.

seat forming the subject matter of this application
comprises the seat board 10 of any approved width and
of a length to correspond with the vehicle with which
it is to be used and having the corners on one side at

date the braces 12, by which the dash 13 is secured.
Upon the under side of the board 10 are secured the
hinge members 14 within which are pivoted the fold-
ing hooks 15 proportioned for engaging the toe rail 16.
Legs 17 are hinged to the under-side of the board 10 45
adjacent the outer edges thereof as shown at 18 and are
designed to bear upon the flooring 19 and support said
edges of the board. To maintain the legs in a folded
position, the straps 20 are secured to the under side of
the seat and slitted for detachable engagement upon 50
the headed fastenings 21. From the under side of the
seat is suspended the strap 22 having a buckle 23 or
other approved fastening.
At the ends of the upper side of the seat are secured
the hinge blocks 24 to which are pivoted the folding 55
end pieces 25 having a curved portion 26 so formed as
to be folded over and upon any form of cushion or up-
holstering with which the seat and end pieces may be
From the foregoing description it will be readily 60
understood that the hooks, legs and end pieces all fold
into the smallest possible space whereby the seat may
occupy but the minimum storage room when not in use.
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed
is: % 65
1. The combination with a vehicle having a dash and
toe rail of an auxiliary seat having recesses for the accom-
modation of the dash securing means, folding hooks for
engagement with the toe rail and folding legs to support
the seat. 70

toe rail, of an auxiliary seat having recesses for the accom-

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I
have hereto affixed my signature in the presence of two
