Title:
Easy in Sand-Brella
Kind Code:
A1


Abstract:
A device to make the insertion of a beach sun umbrella into the sand easier and faster, by adding a second piece of metal tube, of slightly larger diameter than main stem A, about 25 inches in length and placed over the lower part of the main stem A, like a sleeve. The bottom of this tube B is cut, to form teeth that will cut the sand, when this tube B is rotated by a hand held cordless electric motor and secured in place by the brackets, which also hold tube B secure and cushion (i) of stem A support A conical gear ring (d) is secured at the top of tube B and a ring (f) also secured in main stem A, which with the brackets (h), (j) and (k) hold all the parts in place, for good operation.

Claims:
I claim:

1. A new method of building a beach umbrella, so it will be easier to install and secure in the sand, comprising a) a second piece of metal tube, similar to the umbrella's stem A, but slightly larger in diameter, about 25 inches long, covering the lower part of the umbrella's stem A, like a sleeve b) the bottom of this tube B will be cut to form teeth, that will open the way into the sand when this outer tube B is rotated, as we will explain later c) the top of said tube B will be fitted with an outside conical gear ring d) another ring of adequate thickness will be secured on tube A, to keep tube B from sliding further up, from its designated position e) three brackets (h), (j) and (k) attached to ring (f) will hold said tube B in place brackets (h) and (k) are connected together at their lower parts, to create a platform, which also has a hole (o) to hold the cordless motor in position f) a cordless electric motor, fitted with a conical gear, proper to mesh and turn the outer tube B gear ring (d) j) a cushion (i) attached to said tube A, will support the body of the cordless electric motor and keep it in place, for proper gear engagement.

2. A cordless electric motor, turning a conical gear proper to mesh and turn, as in claim 1 said tube B that will cut a way into the sand and make easier the insertion and securing of the SB main stem A h) said cordless electric motor having a pin (g) and gear (n) that will enter hole (o) of platform (l) to keep the gears properly messed, for good operation.

Description:

FIELD OF INVENTION

This invention relates, as the title states, to a new beach sun umbrella, that its stem is specially modified to allow, even a young person, to easily install and secure in the sand.

DESCRIPTION OF RELATED ART

All beach umbrellas, that we know of, are made of a metal (usually aluminum) stem, on which the umbrella is added, with no special fictures to assist in inserting the stem into the sand, which often is not easy.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The extra device, that we have added to our Sand Brella (SB) and will describe hereunder, will eliminate the above defect, by adding a second piece of metal tube B, slightly, larger in diameter than the main stem A, fitted over the lower part of stem A, like a sleeve.

The bottom of outer tube B (FIG. 1), will be cut to form teeth (p) that will cut the way into the sand, when the tube B is rotated, while pushed down, as we will explain later.

The top of the external B tube will be fitted with an outside conical gear ring (d). Another ring (f) will be secured on tube A, to keep tube B, from sliding further up, when pushing tube A down, while tube B is rotated, by a hand held cordless electric motor and properly held in place by fittings, as we will explain next.

Three brackets (h), (j) and (k), attached to ring (f), will hold tube B in place. Additionally brackets (h) and (k), are connected together at their lower parts to form a platform (l), which also has hole (o), for supporting the end pin (g) of the cordless motor gear (n).

A cushion (i) attached to the tube A, will support the body of the cordless electric motor in place, for proper gear engagement.

DESCRIPTION OF PRIOR ART

As much as we know, there is no extra facilities, to make the insertion of the umbrella stem into the sand easier, except opening a hole in the sand, with a small shovel and inserting the stem after.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

FIG. 1, is a front view of the lower part of the Sand Brella stem A, with the additional tube B installed.

The top of tube B will be fitted with a conical gear ring (d) and secured there

Another ring (f) will be fitted and secured in tube A, at a place to keep the bottom of tube A slightly higher than the bottom of tube B and to stop tube B, from sliding further up, when pushing tube A down, while tube B is rotated by an electric motor, as we will explain later.

Three brackets (h), (j) and (k) attached to ring (f), will hold tube B in place, additionally, brackets ((h and (k) are connected together at their lower parts, with platform (l), which also has a hole (o) that will support pin (g) of the electric motor (m) FIG. 2, as we will explain later.

FIG. 2 is a side view of the cordless electric motor (m), showing the conical gear (n), the pin (g) and the push down switch © that will operate the motor (m).

FIG. 3 is a view of the entire above described unit, with the cordless electric motor installed in place and pushed against cushion (i), the right place for proper gear engagement.

The cordless electric motor, will be kept separate from the umbrella, and only put in place and held there by the right hand, pushed against the support cushion (i), while the left hand will grab the stem A, above the motor support and push down, when the right hand thumb will push the electric switch on, to operate the motor, that will cut the sand and allow the main stem A to follow and be installed in there

After the stem inserting operation is finished, the motor should be pulled off, and kept in a dry and safe place, for next time installment operation.
