T0 all wh'om it may conce/m:
Be it knoWn that OSCAR BURNS and PETER GISCHLAR, residing, respectively, at'lroy, in the county of Miami and State` of Ohio, and at Hamilton, in the county of Butler and State of Ohio, have invented new and useful Improvements in Shade Roller'a'nd Curtain Pole Brackets, of which the following is a specification. 4' p i The object of the invention is to provide a simple and inexpensive device capable of a clamping action on a window frame to support the same thereon Without thernecessity for having to vuse attaching devices, such as screws, nails and the like; to provide readily adjustable means so ,that the device may be attached irrespective of the Width of the Windovvframe facing or architrave; and to provide a construction wherein the Weight of the shade roller and curtain 'pole supporterwvill tend to hold the "device in clamped position.,Y .y
, vWith this object in view, the invention consists in the construction and combination of parts of Which a Apreferred embodiment is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein:
Figure 1 is a front elevational view illustrating the upper corner of a Window frame with the device applied in operative. position thereon. y
Figure 2 is agrear elevational view.
Figure 3 is ai'vertical sectional view on the line 3-3 of Figure 1.
Figure 4t is a transverse sectional view on the line 1--41 of Figure 1.
Figure 5 4is a transverse sectional view on the line 5.-5 of Figure 2.
The upright bar 1,-which is'nlade preferably of a flat metal strip, is provided at one end with a rigl'it angular bend constituting a jaw 2 terminally formed with downturned teeth 3 for gripping in the `edge or behind the Window frame facing 4. Intermediately the bar 1 is formed with a longitudinal slot 5, one of the edges of which is serrated to provide the teeth 6, the extremities of the slot being defined by openings 7 to provide clearance spaces for the `head of the stud 8A on the movable ja1v`9, these openings 7 being used only in assembling or disassembling the device. i The movable jaw 9 is `provided With a base plate 10 flanged on-opposite sides, 11
so that the base plate may spanthey bar and the flanges act as guides to retain the` movable jaW in parallelism-With the jaw 2,'the`y movable javv being ,provided` with upturned teeth12 similar to the teeth.=3.f The shade roller supportingy yarm 121 is 16.7of which may be passed through'ejither of the openings 7 -in assembling the device but Which is of sufficient diameter "to retain the shank in the slot. 5 longitudinally ofv Which the shank of thestudl is movable teeth 6, the stud 15 constitutes a fulcrum `for theshade roller supportingiarmy and thelatlter is provided With an arcuate slot 17, the y center of which isieccentric to thel axis ofA P'airizirr,y

F HAMILTON, omo, AssIGNvoRs'oF .60 provided with a fulcrum'stud 15, thehead 'and `selectively engageable vWith, any "offthe teeth 6. When engaged with any yof v.the
the stationary avv 2 as the shade roller sup- V porting arm is lowered to its normal horizontal position. :The stud 8 is identical With the stud 15 and its head retains the y shank in engagement Wth'thecam slot 17, the latter at one end merging into anV enlarged opening 18 through which the head of the stud Sm'ay pass.
The device is assembled first by connecting the shade roller supporting arm with the main bar 1, as by inserting the head 16 of the stud 15 through one of the openings 7 .l After positioning the supporting arm 14 so that the opening 18 at the end of the slot 17 may register with the upper opening 7 of the bar, the movable jaw may be attached by inserting the head of the stud 8 through the openings 7 and 18; Thereafteriswinging the supporting arm down, the stud 8 enters the -cam slot land the several parts of the device are assembled.. In adjusting to suit the particular width of Window frame facing, the shade roller supporting arm is rocked to a position Where the stud 8 stands at an intermediate position in the slot 17. This will permit the Withdrawal of the stud 15 from the slot and the arm and movable jaW maybe shifted along the slot 5 to effect the desired initial spacing of the stationary and movable jaws. Thereafter placing the device ona Window frame facing and lowering the supporting the movable jaw is advanced toward the stationary jaw-and the two eHect the clamping engagement with the facing.
The shade roller supporting arm is provided with a terminal shade roller supporting bracket 19 and with a curtain pole supporting arm 20 properly positioned for use when the supporting arm is in its horizontal position and when the jaws have effected the clamping engagement on the window frame facing or architrave.
The invention having been described, what is claimed as new and useful is:
1. A device Jfor the purpose indicated comprising fixed and movablejaw members and a bar connecting the same, a pivotal shade roller support-ing arm adjustable longitudinally of the bar and operatively connected with the movable jaw to advance the same toward the stationary jaw to effect a clamping operation. i
2. A device for `the purpose indicated comprising fixed andL movable jaw members and a bar connecting the saine, the bar being formed with a longitudinal slot, a shade roller supporting arm having a fulcruin pin movable longitudinally of the slot, and operative connections between the supporting arm andthe movable jaw to advance the same toward the stationary jaw upon angular movement ot the supporting arm in one direction.
y 3. A device for the purpose indicated comprisingiixed and movable jaw members and a bar connecting` the same, the bar being formed with a longitudinal slot7 a shade roller supporting arm `having a fulcrum pin adjustable along said slot, and a stud carried by the movable jaw and traversing an arcuate slot in the supporting arm, said arcuate slot being eccentric to the axis of the fulcrum pin of thesupporting arm. y
l. A device for the purpose indicated comprising fixed and movable jaw members and a bar connecting the same, the bar being provided with a longitudinal slot having a series of teeth formed on one edge, a shade roller supporting bar havinga fulcrum pin engaged in said slot and selectively engageable with any one of the teeth, and an arcuate slot having its center eccentric to the ulcrum pin kand slidably engaging a pin on the movable jaw.
5. A device for the purpose indicated comprising fixed and movable jaw members and a bar connecting the same, the bar being provided with a longitudinal slot having a series of teeth formed on onel edge, a shade roller supporting bar having a fulcrum pin engaged in said slot and selec tively engageable with any one of the teeth,
and an arcuate slot having its center eccenA i tric to the fulcrum pin and slidably ei'igag ing a pin on the movable jaw, the slot in the first said bar and the arcuate slot having terminal enlarged openings and the ulcrum pin and the pin on the movable jaw having.
heads for which said openings constitute clearance spaces in assembling and disassembling the parts.
In testimony whereof they affix their sig natures. 1
