This invention relates to improvements in
chairs, and more particularly to high chairs for
use by infants.

children of various sizes and ages.
A further object is to provide a chair of this
character having a root rest which is adjustable
impressed therein to extend in equi-spaced cir

bolt I 9 extends through the opening in portion I‘I.
Each of the brackets I 6 supports an arm 20.
Each arm has an enlarged circular head portion

A further object is to provide a foot rest pivot
It will be observed from the above that the
foot rest 25 will swing bodily about the bolt I9
as a center, and that the spacing of the foot rest

This construction has the advantage of sim

purposes, and extends inwardly of said rungs to
provide a vertical center portion I1 inset rela

arms 20 and links 21 in proper adjustment makes
for convenience of operation, simplicity, and re
duced cost. Also, it will be observed that the
foot rest unit may be preassembled upon the
brackets [6, to be secured to the chair as a unit
by simply securing the brackets to the chair.
I claim:
1. In a chair, the combination of a seat, a seat
support including legs and interconnecting rungs
therebetween, a pair of brackets ?xedly carried
by said seat support at opposite sides thereof, a
pair of arms each pivoted at one end to one of
opposite ends of said foot rest, brackets carried
by said seat supporting means, said arms being
pivoted to said brackets, links pivoted to said
foot rest spaced from said arms and having a
normally slidable connection with said brackets,
and means for locking said arms and links in
?xed relation to said bracket.
5. In a chair, a seat, means for supporting
said seat, a foot rest, a pair of arms pivoted to
ally mounted on the other ends of said arms, a 10 opposite ends of said foot rest, a pair of links
pivoted to opposite ends of said foot rest in
pair of links each having one end thereof pivoted
spaced relation to said arm pivots, and releas
to said foot rest spaced from said arms, and
able means carried by said seat support for hold
means for locking the pivot connection between
said brackets, a foot rest having its ends pivot
each arm and bracket in ?xed angular position,
said locking means also looking said links in de
sired relation to said brackets.
2. The construction de?ned in claim 1, where
in said links have a combined pivotal and slid
ing connection with the bracket when said look
ing means are released.
3. The construction de?ned in claim 1, where
in said last named means comprises complemen~
tary inter?tting equi-spaced offsets and projec»
tions in said brackets and arms around said piv
0t, and means for clamping said brackets, arms,
and links in frictional face engagement at the
pivot center.
4. In a chair, a seat, means for supporting
saidv seat, a foot rest, a pair of arms pivoted to
ing adjacent pairs of arms and links in desired
relation to said seat support, said arms having a
pivotal connection with said holding means and
said links having a combined pivotal and slid
able connection with said holding means when
6. In a chair, a seat, means for supporting
said seat, a foot rest, a pair of arms, a pair of
links, said arms and links being pivoted at op
posite ends of said foot rest in spaced relation,
said links being slotted, and means carried by
said seat support and mounting said arms and
links, said means including a securing member
pivoting said arms and passing through the slots
of said links.
