Artis DELONEY - Flint MI, US
A portable deck adapted for outdoor use includes a base forming a floor with retaining rails attached by hinges to a side and an end of the base pivotable between a use position extending upwardly and a storage position folded toward the floor. The deck may be supported on a plurality of extendable-retractable wheels. A foldably supported shelf may be attached to the top of at least one of the rails. Brace members with pivoting central joints may be angularly disposed between the deck floor and a post that forms the rail assembly to support it in an upright position and between a post and a shelf to hold it in a level position. Alternatively, a locking rod is positioned in brackets attached to the deck perimeter to entrap the rails between the rod and the deck to releasably retain them in an upright position.
