Griffith's patent "relates to a new manner of bracing and sustaining the top of a billiard-table." His invention "consists in the arrangement of metallic bars, which connect with the end slabs and press under a middle bridge of the billiard-table, serving to draw the slabs firmly together, and also to hold the middle of the table up, and thus keep the top level."
