Patent Application - CLAY TARGET THROWERS AND RELATED METHODS > Claims

  • 1. A device for launching at least one clay target comprising; a clay target thrower; andthree legs, the three legs comprising; a first leg coupled to the clay target thrower;a movable second leg coupled to the clay target thrower wherein the second leg is configurable into an operational position and into a folded position; anda movable third leg coupled to the clay target thrower wherein the third leg is configurable into an operational position and into a folded position; wherebythe second and third legs may be placed in the respective folded positions to facilitate transport and storage of the device.
    • 2. The device of claim 1 wherein at least one of the movable second leg and the movable third leg is configurable between the operational position and the folded position without using tools.
    • 3. The device of claim 1 further comprising a base; wherein the clay target thrower is coupled to the base;the first leg is coupled to the base;the movable second leg is coupled to the base; andthe movable third leg is coupled to the base.
      • 4. The device of claim 3 further comprising a movable clay target thrower mount; wherein the clay target thrower is coupled to the movable clay target thrower mount;the movable clay target thrower mount is coupled to the base; andthe clay target thrower is configurable into an operational position and into a folded position; wherebythe clay target thrower may be placed in the folded position to facilitate storage and transport of the device.
        • 5. The device of claim 4 wherein the movable clay target thrower mount further comprises a mechanism coupled to the clay target thrower mount wherein the clay target thrower is configurable between the operational position and the folded position without using tools.
      • 9. The device of claim 3 further comprising; a throwing arm coupled to the clay target thrower; anda vertical angle adjustment mechanism; wherein the clay target thrower is coupled to the vertical angle adjustment mechanism; andthe vertical angle adjustment mechanism is coupled to the base; and whereinthe vertical angle of the throwing arm relative to the base may be adjusted without using tools.
        • 10. The device of claim 9 wherein the vertical angle adjustment mechanism further comprises one or more toothed surfaces for selective vertical angle adjustment of the clay target thrower.
    • 6. The device of claim 1 wherein at least one of the legs further comprises at least one of a tab and a spike coupled to the leg; whereby the at least one of a tab and a spike will engage a surface the device is placed upon to secure the device to the surface.
    • 7. The device of claim 1 further comprising a release mechanism coupled to the clay target thrower; the release mechanism further comprising a lockout coupled to the release mechanism; whereinthe lockout must be operated concurrently with the release mechanism in order to launch the at least one clay target.
    • 8. The device of claim 1 further comprising a release mechanism coupled to the clay target thrower; the release mechanism further comprising a release mechanism lock; whereinwhen the release mechanism lock is installed on the release mechanism the release mechanism lock prevents operation of the release mechanism.
    • 11. The device of claim 1 further comprising; a clay target guide coupled to the clay target thrower;at least one of a series of holes and slots; andmounting hardware coupling the clay target guide to the clay target thrower; whereinthe clay target guide may be selectively configured for different sizes of clay targets using the at least one of a series of holes and slots and without removing the mounting hardware from the device.
    • 12. The device of claim 1 wherein the clay target guide may be selectively configured without using tools.
  • 13. A device for launching at least one clay target comprising; a clay target thrower;a seat coupled to the clay target thrower; andat least two wheels coupled to the clay target thrower; wherein the wheels facilitate transporting the device.
    • 14. The device of claim 13 further comprising at least one handle coupled to the clay target thrower; wherein the at least one handle facilitates transporting the device.
    • 15. The device of claim 13 further comprising at least three legs coupled to the clay target thrower; wherein at least one of the legs is movable for transport and storage.
      • 16. The device of claim 15 wherein at least one of the legs is movable without using tools.
    • 18. The device of claim 13 wherein the seat is configured to retain and or transport at least one of an ice chest, a clay target box, a gun case, and an ammunition box.
  • 17. A device for launching at least one clay target comprising; a clay target thrower; andat least one of a lever, a knob, a bolt, a nut, a pin, and a detent coupled to the clay target thrower; whereinthe clay target thrower comprises an adjustable horizontal throwing angle; and whereinthe at least one of a lever, a knob, a bolt, a nut, a pin, and a detent allows adjustment of the horizontal throwing angle without using tools.
