Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Nov. 12, 1918.

Application filed April 7,1917. Serial No. 160,527.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that 1, PETER M. Bnnvre, a citizen of the United States, residing at Ramsay, in the county of Gogebic and State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Storm-Window Hangers, of which the following is a. specification.

This invention relates to a hanger or hinge, more particularly adapted for storm windows and the like.

The principal object of the invention is to provide a device of this character that can be applied by anyone not skilled in the use of tools without having to call in a skilled workman.

A further object of the invention is to so form the hinge that it can be applied by means of a hammer only and the windows can be taken down without the use of any tool.

Another object of the invention is to make the hinge of sheet iron or steel and of a minimum number of parts so that the same can be manufactured and placed upon the market at small cost.

The invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts to be hereinafter fully described and specifically pointed out in the appended claim.

In describing my invention in detail reference will be had to the accompanying,

drawings, wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several Views, and in which:

Figure 1 is a front view, showing the invention applied to a storm window.

Fig. 2 is a side View, showing the two members of the hinge separated.

In these drawings, the window frame is shown at 1 and the window at 2. The window is hung by the hinges 3. These hinges are composed of two members 4. and 5, each formed of one piece of metal bent at right angles to form the vertical limb 6 and the horizontal limb 7. Each limb at its extreme and is cut away to leave two narrow strips of metal at each side and these strips are bent at right angles again to form prongs 6 and 7. The member at has its limb 7 cut in its center and this cut portion is bent down and curved outwardly to form a knuckle 8 to receive the hinge pintle 9 and the member 5 has its corresponding limb provided with cuts at each side, and such cut out portions bent and curved to form two hooks 10, which, when the two members manner to the upper part of the sash. Then a by simply placing the hooks 10 in engagement with the hinge pin 9 the window is properly hung.

If desired, I may form screw holes 11 for utilizing screws in addition to the pins.

It is thought from the foregoing that the advantages and novel features of my invention will be readily apparent.

I desire it to be understood that I may make slight changes in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, provided such changes fall within the scope of the appended claim.

I claim as my invention:

A storm window hanger comprising a pair of separable members, one being secured to a window frame and the other being secured to a storm window, each member consisting of a horizontal and vertical arm,

the vertical arms of said members adapted to be secured to the vertical faces of the frame and window respectively while one of the horizontal arms is adapted to be secured with the under side of the top of the window frame and the other secured to the horizontal top of the window, the horizontal arm of one member having a strip cut from the center thereof and said strip being bent to extend in the same plane with the vertical arm and below the horizontal arm then outwardly to form a horizontally arranged knuckle, a pintle carried by said knuckle and projecting beyond the ends thereof, and

the horizontal arm of the co-acting member said members are adjacent each other when having a strip cut from each side thereof, the storm window is in a closed positlon. 0

said strip being bent to extend above said In testimony whereof I aifix my signature horizontal arm and in the same plane as in presence of two witnesses.

the vertical arm of said member then out- PETER M. BREVIG. Wardly to form a pair of hooks adapted to Witnesses:

detachably engage the projected ends of MARTIN SHELBRA,

said pintle whereby the horizontal arms of WM. KosKE.

copies of this patent may be obtained for five cents each, by addressing the Commissioner of Patents, Washington, D. C."
