R. KLATTENBURG EFF AL WATER EXCLUDER Filed Oct 11. 1923 M7%mtoz Patented Mar. 2, 1926.

REINOLDT KLAT'IENIBURG AND iTENS M. NIELSEN, OF ALBION, NEBRASKA.

WATER EXCLUDER.

Application filed October 11, 1923. Serial No. 667,828.

To all whom z't may concern:

Be it known that we, RmNoLD r K ATTEN- none and JENsM. NIELSEN, citizens of the United States, residing at Albion, in the county of Boone and State of Nebraska, have invented new and useful Improvements in Water Excluders, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to an attachment for radiatorvoverflow pipes and one of its objects is to provide an attachment in the nature of a detachable attachment which can be readily associated with the inlet end of the overflow pipe of the radiator without any alteration thereto. 1

Another object is to provide an attachment which will prevent escape of liquid through the overflow pipe when the radiator is being filled but allow excess liquid and steam within the radiator to readily pass therefrom through the medium of the overflow pipe.

This invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, to be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings and specifically pointed out in the appended claims.

In describing our invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawings wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a front view of the attachment showing it applied to the inlet end of an overflow pipe. I j

' Figure 2 is a side elevation of the attachment per se.

Figure 3' is a rear elevation.

Figure 4 is a sectional view taken on line H of Figure 1.

Figure 5 is a sectional view taken on line 5-5 of Figure 2.

Figure 6 is a sectional view taken on line 6-6 of Figure 3.

Figure 7 is a fragmentary view of an automobile radiator showing the application of the attachment to the inlet end of the overflow pipe thereof.

Referring to the drawings in detail, the letter A represents an automobile radiator of the conventional type and B the overflow pipe thereof,

As shown in Figure 6 the attachment is adapted to be positioned von the top and inlet end of the overflow pipe B and retained thereoirtln'oughthe medium of the inherent resiliency of the. material from which the attachment is constructed, and projections formed onthe attachment which the drawings.

Rising from the upper end of the body 1 at a point diametrically opposite the slit or slotted portion thereof there is a neck 4: which secures the top 5 to the body and supports said top in a manner whereby it overlies the inlet opening in the overflow pipe so as to prevent liquid from entering the pipe when the radiator is being filled. The top 5 is arcuate shaped in formation as shown and extends beyond the upper marginal edge of the body so that it may readily overhang the inlet opening of the overflow pipe.

From the above it will be apparent that the attachment may be readily applied to any size overflow pipe and is held associated therewith in a manner as set forth, and the projections 6 extend inwardly at right angles from the up er edge of the body portion 1, as clearly s own 1n Figure 5 of the drawings and in a manner whereby they engage the upper end of the overflow pipe to prevent downward movement of the attachment.

Excess water and steam in the radiator can readily escape by entering the overflow pipe through the space formed between the arcuate shaped top and the upper edge of the overflow pipe, as will be readily apparent.

It is thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of our invention will be readily apparent.

We desire it to be understood that we may make changes in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claims.

What we claim as new is:

1. A radiator overflow pipe attachment of the character described comprising a body portion silt longitudinally throughout its length, and a top overlying the upper end thereof as and for the purpose specified.-

2. An automobile cooling system radiator overflow pipe attachment of the character described comprising a body portion slitlongitudinally in a manner to provide a clamping engagement of the device with the overflow pipe projections extending in- \vardl y from the upper end of the body and an arcute shaped top overlying the upper marginal edge thereof for the purpose specifled.

3. A radiator overflow pipe attachment comprising a body slit longitudialh throughout its length and having its lower portion cut away at an inclination, a neck rising from the upper marginal edge of the body diametrically opposite the slit side thereof, an arcuate shaped top supported by the neck and overhanging the inlet end ofdthe overflow pipe for the purpose speci-- fie 4. An attachment for the overflow pipe of an automobile radiator formed from a single piece of resilient metal and comprising a body portion slit and positioned upon the inlet end of the overflow pipe, 'a neck rising ix-om the upper marginal edge of the body di'ai'notrically opposite the slit side thereof, an arcuate shape-d top supported by the neck in a manner whereby it will over lie the upper marginal edge in the inlet end of an overflow pipe, and inwardly extending projections formed on the body portion for engaging the inlet pipe to prevent downward nloven'i'ent of the attachment.
