Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Sept. 3 1912.

Application filed November 22, 19i1. Serial No. 661,800.

To all whom it may concern:

lie it known that I, Josern BAUMRUK, a

resident of Chicago, in the county of Cook a cheap, and eflicicnt device of- 'thecharact er indicated. p The invention consists in the construc': tion hereinafter described and pointed out in the claims.

In the accompanying drawing which illustrates the invention and forms part of the specification, Figure 1 is an elevation of part;'

of a door and frame with the strip on the door. Fig. 2 is an edge view of a part of the door 'with the device thereon. Fig. 3 is a section of the holder on line 3, 3 of Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is an enlarged partial section taken on line 33 of Fig. 1.

In the drawing 1 denotes a door, 2 a door frame and 3 the sill or threshold immediately beneath the door.

The improved weather strip comprises, in its preferred form, a body bent up from a single rectangular strip or plate of thin sheet metal and of sultable length. The lower part is channel shaped, the side 4., which in use rests against the door, being of single thickness, the outer side 5 and upper side 6 of the channel being of double thickness. Extending upward from the top of the channel is a flange 7 As clearly indicated in Fig. 3 the flanges 4. and 7 are bent backward a little whereby an angle is formed between them, their outer edges being adapted to rest against the side of a door before the meeting edges of said flanges.

Numeral 8 denotes a rubber or similar elastic strip of the same length as the holder which is placed in the holder next to the side 5. i

9 is a wooden strip pressed into the holder in a manner to clamp the strip 8 against particularly side 5 to hold it therein. When the parts are thus assembled side 5, and if desired the flange at, may be punched inward as indicated at 10 to hold the strips 8, 9 in the holder more strongly than by mere friction of plane surfaces.

As thus described the device is ready to be applied to a door and this is done by screws or nails 11 extending through the slde 5, and strip 8, and the side or flange 4, and into the door. The securing devices 11 thus press the outer edges of the flanges 4, 7 strongly against the door, the flanges yielding under the clamping action of the screws or nails, giving a spring pressure at the edges of the flanges. The invention is not limited to the angular position of the flanges to give such spring action.

The wooden strip 9 has the advantage that it strengthens the holder, while it also efficiently clamps the elastic strip 8 against tiiiholder side 5. The double sides 5, 6 increase" the rigidity of the holder so that although the stock used is thin, the device will be able to resist blows, such for example as given by kicks, without being bent. The strip 9 in connection with the holder causes the elastic strip to stand away from the door so that it may fold under as the door swings, and keep water away from the crack under the door.

Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. A weather strip holder comprising in one piece two flanges adapted in use to bear against a side of a door or the like, and meeting edge to edge, the holder comprising also a channel alongside one of said flanges, the top and outer side of such channel being of double thickness and continuous at the outer extremity of said side, and each thickness being at its inner edge connected to the meeting edge of a different one of said flanges.

2. A weather-strip comprising in one piece a holder having two flanges standing edge to edge in approximately the same plane, the holder comprising also a channel alongside one of said flanges, an elastic strip in said channel at its outer side, and a spacing and bracing strip in the channel between the flange side and. the outer side whereby the outer side of the channel is protected against bending b y accidental kicks hy specification in the presence of F0 subscribusers of the door, or in tgansportation and ing witn. r whereb the elastic stri when the deviceis a plie to a. door is h d a distance outside I a I .v JOSEPH AU K 5 o? the outer surface of the door equal to Witn the width of said channel.

In testimony whereof, I havesigneci this En'mn G, Howm.
