SYLVESTER LEE GARTY, 0F TUSC'UIVIBIA, MTSSO'URI, ASSIGNOE OF ONE-HALE TO CHARLES EOSCOE CARTY, OF WALNUT RIDGE, ARKANSAS. v

SASI-I-FAS'IENER.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Dec. 29, 1921.

Application filed February 9, 1920. Serial No. 357,181.

To aZZ whom it may concern Be it known that I, Svnvns'rnn GARTY,

a citizen of the United States. residing at Tuscumbia, in the county of Miller and State of Missouri. have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Sash-Fastenors, of which the following is a specification. I

My invention relates to improvements 1 sash fasteners.

The object of my invention is to provide a sash fastener which is simple in construction, cheap to manufacture, not liab e to get out of order, which is durable, which may be readily applied to a window, and which will reliably releasably lock the sash members from vertical re ative movement and from movement laterally away from each other.

The novel features of my invention are hereinafter fully described and claimed.

In the accompanyingdrawing which illustrates the preferred embodiment of my invention,

Figure 1 is a vertical sectional view on the line 11 of Fig. 2, showing the two sash members locked together.

Fig. 2 is a front elevation of what is shown in Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional view on the line 33 of Fig. 2, the parts being shown unlocked.

Fig. 4 is a horizontal sectional View on the line l4: of Fig. 3.

Similar reference characters designate similar parts in the different views.

1 and 9. designate respectively the upper and lower sash members of a window. Mounted on the top rail of the sash member 2 is a housing 8 in which is rotatably and slidably mounted a bolt 4:, having a lateral pin 5 adapted to be moved in a T shaped slot 6 in the top of the housing 3.

Attached to the forward side of one of the stiles of the sash member 1 is a vertical plate 7 having a vertical row of transverse holes 8, each of which is adapted to receive therein a dovetail shaped head 9 with which the inner end of the bolt 4 is provided, when the bolt is turned to a position in which the pin 5 is disposed vertically, as in Figs. 3 and 4.

The rear side of the plate 7 is recessed at- When the bolt is slid longitudinally so that the head 9 enters any one of the holes 8, the bolt is turned by means of the pin 5, thereby causing the head 9 to engage the recessed portion 10 of the plate 7, the pin 5 passing into one of the lateral extensions of the T shaped slot 6, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2.

A U shaped locking member 11 has its arms provided respectively with two inwardly extending projections 12 which are respectively pivotally mounted intwo transverse holes in opposite sides respective y ofthe housing 3. The transverse portion of the member 11 is adapted to lockingly engage the under side of any one of a plurality of upwardly and outwardly inclined tongues 13 provided one above the other in'the plate 7. hen the bolt 4 is engaged with the plate 7, as shown -'in Figs. 1 and 2. the locking member 11 may be swung so as to lockingly engage the adjacent tongue 18.v as, shown in Figs. 1 and 2, thereby preventing the upper sash from being moved downwardly, while the bolt 4, in addition to holding the sash members from relative vertical movement, holds the sash members from relative lateral movement. The disposition of thelocking member 11 and the tongues 13 with relation to the bolt head 9 and the holes 8, is such that when the locking member 11 is engaged with any one of the tongues 13 of the plate 7, one of the holes 8 will. be in register with the bolt head 9. It might be difiicult when it is dark to position the sashes 1 and 2 so that the bolt head 9 would be in reg ister with one of the holes 8, while it would be comparatively easy to engage the member 11 with one of the tongues. This having been done. the bolt head 9 being in register with the adjacent hole 8. the bolt could be readily moved into the hole and turned to lock the sashes against movement in either direction. The locking member 11 will only hold the sash from movement in one direction.

In the operation of my invention, after the sash members have been adjusted to the desired position, the bolt 4 is slid into the adjacent hole 8 and then turned in either direction so that the pin 5 enters one of the lateral extensions of the slot 6. The bolt 4 will then have its head 9 lockingly engaging the recessed portion 10 of the plate 7, thus holding the sash members from separating.

The member 1 may then be swungto the locking position shown in Figs. 1 and 2, so as to engage the under side of the adjacent tongue 13. To release the fastener, the member 11 is first swung to tl e position shown in Figs. 8 and 4:, after which the bolt is turned to the unlocked position in which the head 9 will pass out of the hole 8, after which the bolt is slid outwardlyto the position shown in Figs. 3 and 4t. The sash members will then be tree to be moved independently of each other.

I do not limit my invention to the structure shown and described, as many modifications, within the scope of the appended claims, may be made without departing from the spirit of my invention.

W hat I claim i 1. In a sash fastener, the combination with two sash members, of a housing attached to one of said members, a bolt rotatably and slidably mounted in the housing, a locking member pivoted to the housing, and means attached to the other sash member forengaging the bolt so as to hold the sash members from movement away from each other and for engaging said locking member to hold the sash members from vertical movement with respect to each other.

housing, a locking member pivoted to the housing, and means adapted to be attached to the other sash member for engaging the bolt so as tohold the sash members from movement away from each other and for lacunae engaging said locking member to hold the sash members from relative vertical move ment in one direction.

3. In a sash fastener, the combination with a housing adapted to be attached to one sash member, a bolt slidable and rotatable in the housing and having a head, a locking mem ber pivoted to the housing, and a plate adapted to be attached to the other sash member and having a transverse hole adapted to receive said head of the bolt when the bolt is turned to one position, the bolt head lockingly engaging said plate when in said hole and the bolt is turned to another position, the plate having means for lockingly engaging said locking member when the latter is swung to the locking position and the bolt is in said hole.

4. In a sash fastener, the combination with two sash members, or a housing attached to one of said members, a plate attached to the other sash member and having a vertical row of transverse holes and a vertical row of tongues, a bolt slidable in the housing into and out of any one of said holes, and a locking member pivoted to the housing and arranged to lockingly engage any one of said tongues to hold each sash from movement in one direction, the disposition oi": the tongues and holes being such that when the locking member is engaged with one of said tongues, the bolt will be in register with one of said holes, substantially as set forth.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification.

SYLVESTER LEE CARTY.
