' To all whom it may concern: I
Be it known that I, JACOB TAIZ, a subject of theCzar of Russia,residing at Phila 'delphia, in the county'of Philadelphia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Shade-Roller Brackets, of which the follow ing is a specification.
The object of my inventlon isjto provide a supporting bracket for curtain poles and shade rollers, of novel, simple and efficient construction which may be readily applied to a window frame or other support without the aid of nails or screws and which may be readily adjusted to. compensate for different lengths of poles or rollers. to be supported thereby. i
To this end my invented bracket consists of the elements thereof and the combinations of them as will be hereinafter fully described and particularly claimed.
Inthe accompanying drawings illustrating my invention, Figure 1, is a front elevation of a portion of a window frame, showing a pair of my improved brackets applied thereto and a curtain supported by the brackets- Fig.- 2, is a sectional plan of the parts shown in' Fig.1, as seen from the line 2'2 of Fig. l. Fig. 3, is a view of one of the brackets detached from the window frame. Fig. 4, is an elevationof a modified form of the invention, and a portion of a frame having a glass panel, and to which the invention is applied. Fig. 5, is
a sectional plan of the parts" shown in Fig.
1,, as seen from the line 55 of Fig. 4:.
Fig. 6, is a view of anothermodified form of the invention. I I
Referring to the. drawings, 2 designates a portion of a window frame having the vertical grooves 3 therein to which the lower and inner sash- 4 is. slidably fitted. The inner wall of the groove 3 for the lower sash l is formed by the usual bar or rib 5-; and my invention, as shown in Figs. 1, 2, 3 and 6, is adaptedto be appliedto this rib 5.
The body portion 'of my improved bracket, as shownin Figs. 1, 2 and 3. com
prises a pair of parallel arms 6 and 7 connected by a part 8, the'arm 6. having upper and lower outwardly-projecting flanges 9 and the whole being preferably formed; of
sheet metal bent into the structure illustrated. The flanges 9 have" openings 10 therein, and in the outer wall of each open I Specification of Letters Patent. 1 Patented Oct. 20,1914. Application filed January 27, 1914. Serial No. 814,780.
inglOQis formed plurality of spaced sockets 11, the sockets of one flange being in vertical alinement with thesockets of the other flange.- jBetween the flanges 9 is a vertically arranged"plate-like lever 12 havand are adapted to seat in any two vertically alined sockets 11 in the flanges 9. The inner portio'nfof thelever 12 is off-set,
at 14:, from the fulcrum'prjojections 13and.
the off-set portion-l4 is provided with inwardly projecting teeth "15 which are adapted to move toward the arm ,7 and embed themselves inthe' structure to which the bracket is applied when the lever 12' is moved on its fulcrum projections 13 from the dotted lineposition to the full line position shown in Fig. 2. The outer portion of the leverl2 is provided with an opening 16 therein which receives'the projection on the, adjacent endv of the curtain roller.
In Figs. land 2, I have shownftwogof I my improved brackets appliedto the window frame and a sh'ade roller l7fextending between andcarried by thebrackets. The
two'brackets are alike in every particular except that they are maderight andleft sothat the body of one bracket may em brace the rib 5 on one side of the window frame and that the body of the other bracket may embrace the rib5 onthe other] side of the window frome'; and .except that one lever 12 has a perforation therein to receive the pivot PTOJGOtlOIl. on one-end of the shade roller and the other lever 12 has a slot therein to receive the flat projection on the 1 other end of the shade roller, the
flat projection being connected to the spring within the roller 1'? in the usual manner.
The connections; betweenthe, ends of the I roller and the levers 12 are the same as is common and well known in connection with spring a shade rollers. When the two brackets are applied to the ribs5, the levers 12'are first moved on their fulcrums toward each other to the dotted line position to thelevers l2are1;moved on,their fulcrums- 1 3- away from each other to thepositions shown by full lines causing the teeth 15. to be forced into the ribs 5 and therebysecuring. the brackets to the ribs. After the levers have been moved to the positions shown by full lines the shade" roller 17 is engaged therewith and the shade roller prevents the lovers 12 from moving toward each other and consequently prevents the loosening of the brackets from the ribs 5. Vhen it is desired to remove the brackets, the roller 17 is first removed from the levers 12, the outer end of the levers are then moved on their :tulcrums toward each other to disengage the teeth 15 from the ribs 5, and the brackets are t en moved toward each other from the ribs 5, By engaging the fnlcrtnn projections of the levers 1s ivith different vertical-11y alined Sockets 11 the levers 12' maybe adjusted toward-V or from each other to fit shade rollers of ditof the bracket With a projection having projecting teeth 19,- as shown. This struc ture is adapted to beapplied to such structures as Window sashes and doors having glass panels therein. When applied to such structures, the, lever 12 is first moved on its fulcrum to bring the teeth 15 outwardly of the inner" face of the arm 6 to the dotted line position. The teeth 19 are then engaged With the strip 20 adj aeent to the glass panel 21 in' th'e frame22'. The arm 6 is then engaged with the face of the frame 22 and the lever 12 is moved to the full line position, causing the teeth 19 to embed themselves in the strip 20 and the teeth 15 to embed themselves the frame 22 and thus hold the bracket lace. H
In the modification shoivn in Fig. 6', the arms 6 and 7 and part 8 are retained and iii-heir of thelever 12 and its connection With-the arm 6, thearni 6 has projection 23' at'right a'ngles to the arm 7, andfulcru'rne d on the p'rojection 23, at 24, is a lever 25. The inner portion of the lever 25 is provided "with teeth 26? and the lever is adapted tolb'e forced inwardly ,to' embed the teeth 26' in the rib 5 when the bracket is applied thereto and the outer portion of the lever pressed down after first being raisedto m'ovethe teeth 26 outwardly of the inner face of the 6 A; spring 27' is provided and secured to the lever 25 and bears against the 6 to force the outer end of the lever 25 normally down. '7 The outer portion of the lever is provided with a suitable opening 28 to receive the projecting end on the shade roller.
