In the drawing:
_
Figure l is a side elevation of the'chair when
extended for use,
Figure 2 is a front elevation, partly broken
55 away, of the chair in extended position,
wall 8 is arranged between the side and front
walls and the lower section of the rear wall. The
side walls are arranged between the front and 20
rear walls.
The sections of the rear wall are
hinged together .as at IS. The lower section of
the rear wall is stationary. The upper section of
the rear wall provides a hinged door which per
mits access to be had to the interior of the body 25
portion. The top wall is mounted upon the side
and front walls. The section I 4 and walls 8, 9,
I0, I l and i5 aresecured together in any suit
able manner.' When section II is closed the top
wall l5 opposes the top'edge thereof. The top 30
wall l5 constitutes the seat of the chair and is
formed with an enlarged circular opening I‘! hav
ing its edge I 8 ?ared and rounded. Secured to
and depending from the bottom 8 are spaced foot
pieces I! 1having rounded lower ends 20. The 35
top wall i5 and rear wall section i3 carry co
acting parts to provide a frictional latch 2i of
known form for detachabiy securing the- door,
formed by section i3, closed. The section 13 has
a ?nger receiving opening‘ 2i’ to facilitate the 40
opening of such section when desired. The com
mode 2 comprises an open top annular body 22
having a rounded lower portion 23 terminating
in a flat bottom 24. The upper end of body 22
merges into an outwardly directed upwardly in 45
clined annular ?ange 25. A handle 26 is secured
to body 22.
Each hinged chair side consists of a panel 21
having a rounded outer corner 28 at its front
end, a rounded rear end 29, a straight outer side 50
edge 30, a straight inner side edge ii, a straight
front end edge 32, a transverse notch 33 posi
tioned in proximity to edge 32 and opening at
edge 30, an opening 34 (Figure 6) arranged in
close proximity to the inner end of edge 30, 55

mortises 35, 35 respectively positioned on the
outer and inner faces of the panel and surround
ing opening 34, a reinforcing plate 31 within
mortise 36 and an inwardly extending arm rest
33 secured upon edge 30 between the rear end of
the latter and the rear wall of notch 33. The
panel 21 is of a length to extend from a point
in close proximity to the front end and terminate
forwardly of the rear ,end of top wall I5. The
10 panel 21 is disposed relative to top wall ‘l5 so
that when a chair side is extended to a vertical
position the edge 3| of the panel will seat upon
top wall l5 inwardly adjacent a side edge of the
latter. The panel‘ 21 is hinged to the top wall
l5, as at 39, in a manner so a chair side will
fold inwardly over the top wall |5. The width
of panel 21 is less than half the width of top wall
I5. The plates 31 when arranged in the mortises
36 constitute closures for the outer ends of open
20 ings 34.
To prevent the chair sides 3, 4 from swinging
completely off the top wall IS, the latter has se
cured to the side marginal portions of its upper
face pairs of aligning stop strips. The strips of
each pair are designated 40, 40'. The pairs of
strips are abutted by the inner portions of the
chair sides 3, 4 when the latter are extended to the
position shown in Figure 1. The strips of each
pair have the outer sides thereof flush with a side
30 edge of top wall |5.
51, at the inner ends of its sides 58. is formed
with a pair of oppositely extending, laterally
disposed arms 56 of a width for positioning in
the notches 33 in and to be flush with the outer
side edges of the chair sides. Secured at one
end to the inner face of each arm 59 is a holder
60 to prevent the shifting of panel 51 transverse
ly, forwardly and rearwardly when the element
6 is in child con?ning position. The holder 60
is formed of an oblong block 62 disposed on one 10
of its end edges.
When element 6 is in child
con?ning position the holder 60 extends into
and projects outwardly from a mortise 64 formed
on the inner face of a panel 21. The arms 59,
holder 60, notches 33 and mortises 64 provide
means for detachably connecting the element 6
to the chair sides 3, 4. The panel 51 has a con
cave rear edge 65 and has secured to its inner
face a reinforcing member 66.
The commode positioning and supporting ele
ment 1 comprises an upstanding strip 61 secured
upon its lower lengthwise edge to the upper face
of bottom wall 8 at the longitudinal median of
the latter. The strip 61 is of a length less than
that of wall 8. The strip, at its forward end, 25
abuts the inner face of wall II and has its up
per lengthwise edge formed of a forward straight
portion 68 and a rear inclined portion 69. The
latter extends upwardly from the rear end of
strip 61 to the rear end of edge portion 68. The

tend through the apertured outset portions 54
CO of coupling plates 55 seated in the mortises 35.
The ends 52 and the retainers 53 of the mem
bers 50 coact with apertured offset portions 54
of the plates 55 for universally connecting said
members 50 with said plates 55. , The members
50 are rigid.
The plates 55 act as closures for
the outer ends of openings 34. The plates 55
are anchored to the chair sides 3, 4 by the hold
fast means 56 which also acts to secure the re
inforcing plates 31 in the mortise 36 of the chair
sides. The members 50 act to limit the rear-‘
ward movement of the chair back when the lat
ter is extended.
The element 6 comprises a panel 51 having the
major portion thereof of a width less than the
75 distance between the chair sides.
The panel

a guide. The edge portions 16 of the webs, in
connection with the lower face of top wall l5,
'provide retaining pockets or grooves for the
flange 25 of the commode. The edge portion
68, in connection with the edge parts 13 of the
webs, form a support for the bottom 24 of the
commode. The edge parts 14, 15 of the webs
form a con?ning means for the body of the com
mode. The stop 11 forms an arrestor for the
commode as it is to be engaged by flange 25.
