1,183,598, Specification of Letters Patent. Patented lw 16 1916 Application filed July 22, 1915.- Serial No. 41,388.

To rill whom it may concern: being usually provided on that part of the B it k w th t I FRANK W, SACHSE, a lnge which remains stationary. Each of citizen of the United States, residing at he leaves 1 and 2 is cut out as is shown Columbus, in the county of Franklin and at 8 and 9 respectively, these out out por- St t f Ohi h i t d t in w t1ons being designed to accommodate the and useful Improvements in Hinges, of ree movement of locking disks 10 and 11. which the following is a specification. R ference to Figs. 3 and 1 will show y invention relates to hinges and has that the locking disk 10 is provided with particular bearing on the type of hinges a not h 12 S0 arranged as to embrace the used in connection with casement windows l af 2 o establish a rigid connection there- .01' other similar winging'portions, Such as W113l1 and by IIIQELIIS 0f the SlOt 8 tlllS CllSk doors and the like. 1

Th i bj t of my inve ti r id dlsk 11 is similarly formed, but its notch in a structure whereby the window or other 18 arranged to embrace the leaf 1 and object to which my hinge is applied may It has no connect1on with the leaf 2 inasb l k d i any one f various numbers much as it operates in the slotted portion of positions of adjustment between closed Th 118k 10 is additionally provided end wide open position. This Iaim to acw th a series of notches 14, while the complish without the use of any bunglesome lsli 11 1S plovlded with a single notch attachments and one which will be posidesignated 15, these notches being detively operable each time its operation is lgned o cooperate with a locking lever desired. 16 preferably pivotally carried by the The preferred embodiment of my invenh d portion 7 of the pintle 4, as is tion is shown in the accompanying draw- Shown at 17. It will be noted that both ings, in which similar characters of referhe dlsks 10 and 11 are each provided ence designate corresponding parts, and in w th a central aperture through which the which: plntle 4 passes and the arrangement of disks Figure 1 is a face view of my improved 1s such that one is in rigid connection with type of hinge showing the same in locked One leaf, whlle the other is in rigid conwide open position, Fig. 2 is a similar view nection with the other leaf. Therefore, showing the leaves in partially closed and when the hinge is applied to a window r unlocked position, Fig. 3 is a section taken the llke, movement of the leaf 2 about it on line 33 of Fig. 1, Fig. 4 is a section pivot point will move the various locking taken on line 1t of Fig. 1, Fig. 5 is a side notches 14 in a path beneath the locking View of the hinge pivot pin showing the notch 15 carried by the disk 11, which norlocking lever pivoted thereto, Fig. 6 is a mally remains stationary. It will, thereview taken at right angles to that shown fore, appear that the two leaves may be in Fig. 5, and, Figs. 7 and 8 are side views hel in any one of a number of locked posiof the leaves forming the hinge shown detions by simply lifting the pivoted lever 16 tached. out of engagement with the registering In these several views, the hinge leaves notches 14: and 15 as is shown in Fig. 1 are designated by the reference numerals and then moving this leaf to any other de- 1 and 2, each of these leaves having their sired position of attachment to bring any adjacent edges rolled or folded to present set of notches 14 and 15 into registry and interlocking knuckles such as shown at 3, then dropping the lever back into locking these knuckles serving the purpose of formposition similar to that shown in Fig. 1. ing a pivot connection for the pivot pintle By this arrangement the major portion of 4. The upper knuckle of the leaf 1 is prothe hinge structure is practically identical vided with a notched portion such as is with what is now on the market, the essenshown at 5 to cooperate with a similarly tial difference being in the arrangement of formed fin 6 formed on the upper end of notches 8 and 9 and the shortening of certhe pivot pintle 4 directly beneath its head tain of the knuckle portions 3 to accommo- I 7. This fin and notch arrangement is prodate the mounting of the locking disks 10 vided in order to prevent the natural workand 11. Also by this arrangement, a struc- 116 ing out of the pintle 4 during the operature is provided whereby a window or other tion of the hinge, the notched portion 5 swinging part may be locked in either closed or open position and this structure "occupying a comparatively small compass. By looking the pintle in connection with one of the leaves as regards its rotative movement and pivoting the locking lever to this pintle, the pintle is always in a position to drop into the single notch in the disk 11, which is also held stationary with the leaf 1.

What I claim, is:

1. A hinge comprising a pair of leaves formed with interlocking knuckle portions along adjacent edges, each leaf having a cut-out portion extending inwardly from said knuckle portions, said two out out portions being at different elevations so asnot to register when said leaves are assembled, aipintle passing through said knuckle portions to pivot said leaves together, a pair of locking disks, one for each leaf and each formed with a cut out portionto embrace its respective leaf whereby a rigid connection is established between said disks and their respective leaves, the rigidly connected disk of one leaf being slidable through the cut out portion of the other leaf, one of said disks being formed with a series of' locking openings and the other disk being formed leaves together, rmeans with a single locking opening, and a lever element arranged to seat itself in any pair of registering locking openings.

.2. A hinge comprising a pair of leaves formed with interlocking knuckle portions along adjacent edges, a pintle passing through said knuckle portions to pivot said whereby said pintle' is held rigid with one of saidleaves as regards rotative movement, a pair of'locking disks, onefoneach leafand each formed with a cut out portion to embrace its respective leaf whereby a rigid connection is established between-said disks and their respective leaves, one of said disks being formed with -a series ofllocking -notches and the other disk being "formed with a single locking notch, anda locking lever pivote' at one en'd to the top of said 'pintle and shaped to seat-itself Lin-anypair of registering locking notches.
