Specification of 'Letters Patent.
`Patented June 5, 1917.
Application inea January 1e, 1917. serial No. 141,940.
To all 'whom t may concern.'
Be it known that l, ANDREW Hammer, a subject of the Emperor oft' Austria, resident oi New York, county of New York, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Shade Awning Supports, of which the following is a specification.
rlhis invention relates to improvements in awning supports, and has its principal object the provision of means which are readily attachable to windows of ordinary construction in such manner that the shade or curtain may be used as an awning extending eX- teriorly of the window.
Another object is to provide such means in forms which are cheap to construct and easy to adjust, and which when in a folded position do not obstruct the window space.
These and other like objects are attained by the novel construction and combination of parts hereafter described and shown in the accompanying drawing, forming a material part of this specification, and in which Figure 1 is a vertical sectional view of a window showing the application of the invention, the awning being extended ,as in use.
Fig. 2 is a similar sectional view of the same, the parts being in a folded position, and
Fig. 3 is an enlarged perspective view showing the details of construction.
Fig. 1 of the drawing shows a window frame 10 with the lower and upper sashes respectively 11 and 12, both being in a raised position, and the curtain or shade 14 eX- tended outwardly below the sashes and disposed at such an angleas to prevent the rays of sun from entering the window.
In Fig. 2, the sashes are shown in a closed position and the shade or curtain 14 partially raised on the inner side of the window.
Hingedly attached to the side frames 10 are arms 15 having secured at their outer ends bifurcated clips 16, adapted to contain in the openings 17, a stretcher stick 18 secured in the hem of the curtain, the stick being clamped within the openings 17 by the screws 19.
Also slidably engaged with the arms 15 are sleeves 20 having clamp screws 21l provided with a peculiar shaped head v22 for reasons farther on described.
Near one end of the sleeve 2O are eyes or loops 25 and engaging therewith are similar loops 26, the latter being rigidly inserted near the ends of the bars 27 in such manner that the arms and bars are loosely but positively engaged. rThe outer opposite ends of the bars 27 are reduced in thickness and formed with hooks 28 adapted to engage with the necks 29 of the button-head studs 30 iiXed in the window frames above the point of attachment of the arms 15.
liv/Then it is desiredv to make use of the curtain as an awning, the arms 15 are extended horizontally, the bars 27 engaged with the studs 30 and the sleeves 2O adjusted along the arms so as to maintain them either horizontally or at any desired angle. The curtain is then passed out through the window space below or above the open sashes, its weighted stii'lening bar being disposed between the jaws of the clips 16 and secured by set screws as indicated.
If more light be desired, obviously the sleeves 2O will be moved outward toward the end of the arms, thereby raising them to any desired degree.
lNhen it is not desired to use the curtain as an awning, the parts are turned upward so as to bring the arms 15 into a substantially perpendicular position, the` bars 27 being turned sidewise upon the eye loops 25 and 26 so as to fold closely against the arms hanging pendent and engaged with the clips 32, and the hooked heads 22 engaged with the studs 30 thereby holding the device out of the way.
I claim v 1. An awning support comprising a pair of arms pivotally engaged with a window casing, open jawed members rigidly secured at the outer ends of said arms, said members being receptive of the end of a curtain, means for clamping the curtain therein, sleeves slidably engaged on said arms, mea-ns for clamping said sleeves thereon, said clamp means having a hooked head, a loop secured in each of said sleeves, a pair of support rods, other loops secured therein engaged with the rst of said loops7 hooks formed with the opposite end of said support rods, and studs set in a window casing with which said hooks or screw heads are engageable.
