IMPRQVEMENT IN AWNING-SLIDES.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 132,559, dated October 29, 1872.
To all whom it may concern:
Beit known that I, J OHN BOYLE, ofthe city, county, and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Awning- Slide, of which the following is a specification:
In the accompanying drawing, Figure 1 is a front view of iny improved slide. Fig. 2 is alongitudin al section ofthe same taken through the line m x, Fig. l. Fig. 3 is a cross-section of the same taken through the line 'y y, Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a detail View, showing another way of securing the rod in the socket.
Similar letters of reference indicate correspondin g parts.
My invention has for its object to furnish an improved awning-slide, simple in construction and effective in operation, retaining its position securely and not being liable to get out of order 5 andlit consists in a grooved slide, sliding` block, and the tubular socket to receive therod, constructed and arranged in connection with each other, substantially as herein shown and described, and for the purpose set forth.
A is the slide, which is to be attached to the window-Casin g, door-casing, or other place Where the awning is to be. The slide A may be made of met-al or of wood, or of wood lined with metal, or of other suitable material. In the slide A is formed a groove, which may be half round, as shown in Fig. 3, or T-shapcd, or triangular, or square, or round, or other shape. The slide A is secured in'place by screws passing through the said slide in the bottom of its groove, as indicated in Figs. l and 2. Thus secured the slide cannot bend,
, awning-rod or brace, the end of which is inserted in the tube C, in which it is secured by apinlpassingthrough the socket C and through the rod D. The rod D may also be secured in the socket C by forming a notch in the said rod D and hammering the side of the tube C down into said notch, as shown in Fi .4. To
facilitate the hammering down of the tube C into the notch of the rodD the said tube should be cast with a transverse slit in one side.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patentl. The grooved slide A, sliding block B, and tubular socket C to receive the awning-rod, said parts A B C being constructed and operating in connection with each other, substantially as herein shown and described, and for the purpose set forth.
2. The transverse slit formed in the tubular socket C to adapt it to be hammered down into a notch formed in the awning-rod for that I purpose, substantially/'as herein shown and described.
