,v -1,469,525-- PATENT a '1 O D Y, F'NANTIo KE,'rnnnsyr venrn f I HINGE.

, Application filed llljay 9,

To all wliom z't may c mm-1 e v i I :Beiit ,known that .I,;. Or'ro .NADonNnY, a citizen of theUnited'States of America, and

. resident of Nanticoke, in -the county .of

Luzerne and State of- Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hinges,,o f which the following. is a specification. I jThis invention relates towhinges', and particularly tol hinges having special reference for use onscreen doors and the like, the said invention including novel means whereby the mounting for a screen door may be per:

1 manently set on a door frameto support the hinges of the door, -ye t permittlngthe rtevmovalsof thev hinges whenthe door is to be taken down, a provision which-obviates the necessity-for placing and'removmg screwswhen-the door isagain to be hung or taken down. r

v Itjiis. known that when screws are removed fromxthe hingej leavesf or butts, season: after season, the anchoragesfor the must-be plugged or larger, screws employed, and other disadvantages result..-By the use of the invention forming the subject of this "application",'screen doors may be hung or removed without impairing the door frame, as stated, and furthermore the work of ap ditiously accomplished. I

It is a further object of this invention" to provide a door hinge mounting of the character indicated, including means for permitting the door to be hung within the opening in the frame,'or to close the opening in the frame by bearing against the side of the frame, so that by a simple expedient, the mounting for the door maybe attached to the frame to permit the door to be hung in either of the positions indicated.

A further object of this invention, is to produce a device of the character indicated which can be readily changed to operate in either manner herein set forth, and without materially increasing the cost of the equipment necessary to effect the result;

With the foregoing and other objects in view, the invention consists in the details of construction. and in the arrangement and combination of parts to be hereinafter more fully set forth and claimed, 7

In describing the invention in detail, reference will be hadto the accompanying drawings forming part of this application,

whereinlike characters-denote correspond 1ng parts, in the several views, and n I Figure 1 illustrates a view in perspective embodying the invention; F g e F iguref 3 illustrates a perspective view of an attachment thereforl to' secure the mount- 2 illustrates-a perspective view of one of the mountings of a, door hingeand a mounting therefor mg clear of thefsideiofnthe door frame;- :.v 1;!

. Figure 4: illustrates a se'ctional viewjofthe and the attachment; for; anchoring.

Figure I 5 illustrates a sectional view of a fragmentv of a door frame and door the hingeappliedlt hereto; and V P Figure 6' illustratesa similar view showing the relation of the mounting disclosed in F ig.. ,4: applied to the frame and doorgl showing;

' 1nthesedrawingswdenotes one of the hingele'aves and 11 thefcoactin'g leaf, which are mounted on pintle; orpivot'"12, ass k ciated with a Spring 13, by-yvhic'h the 'door s operated to close it.'; w

, -The hinge leaves have base elements or platesand outstanding ears-that extend beyond the edges of the plates on a line be-i" tween the adjacent edges of the said bases to receive the pivot, and when these devices are applied to a door and its frame p with the bases of the leaves applied to the outer surface of' the door or frame, there is a clearance of ran appreciable degree between the inner i edges of the ears and the said door or frame to receive the bases, and the ears canthen be moved closer to the door or frame wWithout chang-' ing the construction of the hinge,

The edges of the leaves converge toward their bottoms in order that when they are fitted to the socket or ei'nounting, they will be supported therein, as will presently appear.

Each mounting, in the presentembodh ment of the invention, comprises a plate 14,

provided with apertures 15 to receive screws by which the mountings are attached to the door frame." The plate 14: has its edges flanges which fla nges associated with the plate, might-be saidto constitute a socket to receive a leaf.

As shown in Fig. 5, the leaves hinges are employed in association with a door that is hung within a fname, and in this employment of the invention, the mounting is permanently appliedto the frame and the'hinge is removably secured in the mount ingy'it being possible tor-remove-thehinge from the mounting by lifting the door;

In event of it being necessary or desirable to mo'unt' the door with its side bearing against the door'frame' in order to close th-e opening in the door frame, the equipment would consist substantially :f; the elements shown in Figs. 4 and 6,"Where111 the mounti-ng l lis the same as heretofore described,

and act as supports for the mounting." 'E a'ch bracket has tWoa perture-d flangesw and V but instead of having screws applied'to theholes 15 for anchoring the mounting directly to the'door frame, brackets 1-8 are interposed between the mounting and" the door frame onej of' which is secured to'the doordrame by fastenings 21 such as screws, wvhereas the other flange isconnected to the mounting by fastening-s such as screw bolts 22. The brackets are of such height as to corre spond approximately to the width of the door with 'Which-theyare to" be used, 211- though these proportionsv may be jv-aried withinpredetermined bounds Without affecting the operation of the device". When'the bracketshave'been applied to the door frame and the mountings are attached} to the s aid brackets, the door may be hung-or removed or the with theequip'ment shown in Fig.6, but it ax ill be seen that advantage results from pro- ,vldlng' means I which ;hold' the socket or ,mounting in spaced relation to the? doorin the same way as it isihung. or renzroved In a door mounting;bracketsfhaving 'ape'r-r tured flanges, the saidbrackets beingffi'f a height to compensate *for the difierence in thickness of doors,-one of said apertnred flanges of each bracket being adapted to be secured to a door frame; a plate provided 7 1th apertures by' which the'said plate maybe secured to a door frame or to, the said brackapertures for anchoring-the plate mm door frame in operative relation to a door, the said late 'having'it s' edges converging down ward y' and inturnedto iorm'guides; and a hinge haying twoleaves, one of which may be secured to' a. door andthe other of-ivhi-ch tapers to'theconfiguration ofthe space-be tween the guides of the plate,the said last anentioned leaf being of a thickness to r in the guidesformed- 'by-' the plate and its flanges, as'an-d for the purpose described;
