UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE. A
ROBERT ELLIOTT, OF NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT, ASSIGNOR F ONE-HALF TO THOMAS M. IBINKS, OF NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT.
Application filed June 9, 1925. Serial No. 35,877.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, ROBERT ELLIOTT, a citizen of the United States, residing at New Haven, in the county of New Haven and State of Connecticut, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Paint Shields; and I do hereby declare the following, when taken in connection with accompanying drawings and the characters of reference marked thereon, to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, and which said drawings constitute part of this application, and represent, iii- Fig. 1 a plan View, showing a four-part shield constructed in accordance with my in vention.
Fig. 2 a face View, showing the shields in position.
Fig. 3 a vertical, sectional view through the shields, on an enlarged scale.
This invention relates to improvement in paint shields, and particularly to shields adapted to be placed over glass, to prevent paint from reaching the glass when the surrounding parts are being coated with paint by a spraying process. It has been customary to paste sheets of paper over the glass, but this is difficult to remove, after the painting is done. The object of this invention is to provide metal shields which will completely cover exposed surfaces of glass, so that paint may be applied by spraying, without touching the g ass, and the invention consists in the construction as hereinafter described and particularly recited in the claim.
In carrying out my invention, I preferably employ four plates 5, 6, 7 and 8 of'the desired size and adapted, when overlapped,
to entirely cover the exposed surface of a sheet of glass 9 in a frame or sash 10. The plates 5 and 7 are each formed with a row of teeth 11 struck out from the plates 5 and 7, and adapted to be engaged by the ends of springs 12, which are secured near the lower edges of the plates 6 and 8. The plates 5 and 6 are first arranged over the glass at one side, and the spring 12 engaged with one of the teeth 11 in the plate 5, tending to force the edges of the plates against the upper and lower edges of the frame.
The plates 7 and 8 are then placed over the glass at the other side, and the spring engaged with the fingers, as above described.
In this way, the four plates completely cover the surface of the glass, so that the surrounding frame may be coated with paint by spraying and without danger of paint reaching the surface of the glass. In I thecase of vertically-movable glass-frames, as in doors or sliding windows of automobiles, the lower edges of the plates 6 and 8 may enter between the glass and the frame, as shown in Fig. 3 of the drawings. In any event, the springs 12 tend to force the up- 05 per and lower edges of-the plates to a hearing. I claim:
A paint shield, comprising a pair of inner plates, each provided with a spring-finger, a
air of outer plates, each formed with teeth in line with said springs and ada ted, when the said plates overlap, to be he d in posi: tion by the engagement of the springs with said teeth.
In testimony whereof, have signed this ROBERT ELLIOTT.
