Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Oct. 1d. 1913 Application filed September 9. 1912. Serial X0. 719,398.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, HENRY KLEBER, J12, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Pittsburgh, in the county of p 5 Allegheny and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improve ments in Looking Devices for Shelves, of which the following is a specification reference being had therein to the accompanying 1o drawing.

This invention relates to a locking device for shelves, drawers, trays and compztrt merits, and more particularly to a locking device especially designed for shelving 0.

stores, to prevent records and other articles from being removed from the shelving.

' The primary object of my invention is to provide a locking device that can be ea'sil y and quickly shifted into or out of position,

whereby matter cannot be removed from shelving when the device is in it locked position, and easy access can he had to the shelving with the device in an unlocked position.

Another object of my invention is to prevent the nefarious practice of removing Sill)- stituting 0r tampering with phonogrsphic recordS or other articles stored or maintained upon shelving.

A further object of my invention is to provide a simple, durable and inexpensive locking device that does not mar the general appearance of fine shelving, the lurking device being susceptible to a finish that hermonizes with the shelving.

lVith the above and other objects in view the invention resides in the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter specifically dcscrihcd and then claimed. 4 Reference will now he hnu to the drznv ing, wherein Figure l, is a perspective View of a Mctiun of shelving provided with the locking dc vice, showing: the device in :1 locked posiliwn,

and Fig. an enlarged per pective vievr of :t porti n of the device.

To put my invention into practice. I prw ride the front side of the shclring l at the in hl-nt. slml'r-czl or pr vided with means for :tt- 1 l is to h underlcml that the s ructural ele stance of the hastening means. the ends of Inching the J'O'l: to the shelving.
