Application filed October 20, 1920. Serial No. 418,235,

T 0 all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM N. RUssnLL, a citizen of the United States, residing at New Haven, in the county of New Haven and State of Connecticut, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Anti-lVindow-Rattlers, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.

My invention relates to new and useful improvements in anti window rattlers and has for its object, among other things, to produce a device of this character that may be secured to a fixed Part such as the body of a motor vehicle, and contact with the sash or pane of glass in the frame movably mounted therein or the frame itself, so as to prevent the same from rattling.

To these and other ends my invention consists in the anti window rattler having certain details of construction and combinations of parts as will be hereinafter described and more particularly pointed out in the claim.

Referring to the drawings in which like numerals of reference designate like parts in the several figures:

Figure 1 is a plan view of my improved device; and I V Figure 2 is a sectional view thereof taken generally upon line 22 of Figure 1.

Experience has demonstrated from a knowledge of the devices of this general character in the prior art that the contactwith the pane of lass should be merely a touch without app ying pressure, and that the mechanism should be so rigidly supported as to prevent rattling in itself and yet capable of very fine adjustment and easy manipulation.

No device to my knowledge has these qualities, they being generally designed to be secured to one of two sashes movable rela-' tively to each other and having contact with the frame of the sash instead of the pane and not sufficiently delicate in their action to be used in connection with the pane as distinguished from the sash. I

In the drawings I have illustrated by the reference numeral 10 one portion of a part of a moto vehicle which may be a door or part of the frame, and by the numeral 11 a window sash movably mounted therein, and within which is a pane of glass 12.

My device comprises a body 13 whichmay be secured to the motor vehicle part 10 by screws 14 or other similar means and as provided with a central head portion 15 having a cylindrical bore 16 therein. Slidably mounted within said bore is a sleeve 17 which 1s internally threaded at 18 and into which .is threaded the screw 19 having a knurled head 20 upon the outside of said central head portlon 15, and held against endwise movement by the key 21 which projects into an annular groove 22 in the shank of the screw'19.

The sleeve 17 is held against rotation by a key 26 that projects into a keyway 23 in one side thereof. Fixed on the outer end of the sleeve 17 is a cup 24: within which is a head 25 of rubber or other resilient materlal, the exterior of which is preferably semi-circular in shape.

In operation by rotation of the screw 19 through manipulation of the head 20, the sleeve 17 is moved toward and away from the pane 12 which with the sash 11 connected therewith is prevented from rattling within the part 10 by the tip of the head 25 being brought into contact with the said pane but without applying pressure thereto. To release the sash so that it may be moved, the head 25 is withdrawn from the pane by a reverse action of the screw 19. With this device only a single point of the rubber head 25 is in contact with the pane, thus materially reducing the liability of breakage of the pane by strain or pressure thereon and the relative diameter of the sleeve 17 is such that it has a very substantial bearing within the central head portion 15, and is held against lateral movement, but may be moved endwise with great accuracy by manipulation of the screw 19.

The keys 21 and 26 both being inserted through the underside of the body 13, they are concealed from observation, and it is impossible for them to work loose. Both being in the underside of the body, is an important factor in the economical construction and assembling of the parts, and the exterior of the finished portion of the body 13 is not marred by unsightly parts.

Having described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is: 7 An anti window rattler having a body member with a cylindrical bore therethrough; a sleeve having a keyway for a portion of its length in one side thereof, slidable within said bore; a cup upon the outer end of said sleeve; a head of resilient material fixed in saidcup andhaving a semi-circular said screw, the construction of said body exterior in a plane substantially parallel member being such that when secured in p0- with the axis of said sleeve; a screw'threadsition both of said keys are inaccessible from 10 ed into said sleeve; a key fixed i said body the exterior of said body member.

-member and projecting into said keyway; In testimony whereof, I have hereunto afand a secon'd key fixed insaid body member fixed mys ignature. and projecting into anannular groove in WILLIAM N. RUSSELL.
