Description:

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to giving an archer a bow case and work station that is one in the same.

DESCRIPTION OF PRIOR ART

The prior art is replete with bow cases for use in storage and transportation of archery equipment. Most conventional bow cases are made plastic or canvas. When the archer goes to the field to practice they would lay their bow case on the ground open it and neel down to get their equipment out put it together and start to practice. With their bow case and accessories on the ground. In some hunting situations the ground will be muddy and cause more difficulties with keeping the equipment clean. There is another problem with having a place to set your bow down when making adjustments to the equipment or getting your arrows out of your target after a practice round With legs that can be installed on the bottom of the bow case it will give the archer easier access to the bow and accessories, keep the case cleaner and much better height for a work station.

Various prior art embodiments of bow cases are set fourth and shown in a number of issued U.S. patents For example U.S. Pat. No. 6,920,977 issued to Ralph VanSkiver for a bow case. The bow case shown therein is built for storage and safe transportation of the archery equipment the case is comprised of two halves of a box but more particularly a smaller box inside of the bow case to store accessories normally left loose inside of the bigger bow case. The case also has a means for safely storing arrows. Keeping the arrows safe and other equipment has been a concern for years as shown in U.S. Pat. No. 6,571,946 issued to Joseph F. Fiore Jr. the bow case utilizes reinforcing Pillars to evenly distribute the different loads encountered during transportation and And a means for molding these pillars for mass low cost production. Joseph F. Fiore Jr. Was issued a U.S. Pat. No. 639,024 for a bow case with mating rims to strengthen the Bow case when in the closed position, pillars for distribution of loads in transportation And a clamshell design. The problem with the prior art is it is usually laid on the ground And accessories difficult to get and work on.

It would be an advantage therefore to over come the disadvantages of the prior art by providing a bow case with table like removable legs to give the archer a better work station, cleaner equipment and easier access to the archers equipment. By installing legs and raising the bow case off the ground the present invention over comes the disadvantages of the prior art in a cleaner and more usable manner.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The present invention raises the height of the bow case utilizing removable legs to give the archer a waist high area to work on and with their archery equipment. It would also be a table type area to leave equipment while retrieving arrows from the practice target. Raising the bow case off the ground will also help in keeping the bow case and equipment clean with greater accessibility to the equipment.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

For a more complete understanding of the present invention reference may now be had to the following description taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings in which

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of the upper half of the bow case

FIG. 1A is a perspective view of a handle to carry the bow case

FIG. 1B is a perspective view of one of two hinges to pivot the upper half of the bow case on and off the bottom half of the bow case

FIG. 2 is a perspective view of the lower half of the bow case

FIG. 2A and FIG. 2C is a perspective view of the socket protruding inside of the bow case. The socket will be open ended to the outside and bottom of the bow case, closed to the inside to stop the leg from entering the storage area when inserted in the bottom.

FIG. 2B is a perspective view of the handle attached to the bottom half of the bow case Completing the handle with the upper handle

FIG. 3 is a perspective view of one of four legs to insert in the sockets to form a table like bow case. The legs are 1¼ inch inside diameter and 35 inches long

FIG. 4 is a perspective view of the steel or plastic base flange 1/16 of an inch thick and a four inch Outside diameter, a hole in the center with a 1¼ inch diameter and four ¼ inch holes to mount the flange to the bottom of the bow case with four ¼ inch bolts

FIG. 4A is a perspective view of a steel or plastic pipe three inches long, 1/16 inch thick walls And a inside diameter of 1¼ inch to match the hole in the base flange of FIG. 4.

FIG. 4B is a perspective view of the steel or plastic base flange and the pipe

FIG. 5 is a perspective view of the assembled pipe and flange protruding through the outside and bottom of the bow case.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

With this improvement the sockets to be installed or built into the bow case will be made of steel or plastic tubing 1¼ inch inside diameter and 1/16 of an inch thick wall FIG. 4A, cut to a length of 3 inches the 3 inch piece of tubing on the open end will then be electric welded or glued to the center hole in a flat washer like flange FIG. 4. The flange is 4 inches on the outside diameter and a 1¼ inch hole in the center of the flange to match the 1¼ inch hole in the tubing Weld or glue the 1¼ inch hole in the pipe and the 1¼ hole in the flange together FIG. 4B. The other end of the tubing will be plugged by a piece of steel or plastic ⅙ of an inch thick and 1¼ of an inch outside diameter FIG. 4C and electric welded or glued to cap the end of the pipe that would be inside the bow case to stop the legs from entering the bow case when inserted in the sockets.

Using a 1¼ inch hole saw cut four holes one in each corner of the bottom of the bow Case. Install four such sockets in each corner of the bow case through the bottom floor of the bow case using ¼ inch bolts and nuts. With the four flanges mounted in the corners of the bow case insert the four legs FIG. 3 into the sockets. Lift the bow case up on the legs forming a waist high bow case. The bow case will have a much greater accessibility to the equipment inside, a place to set equipment down when needed and much cleaner.
