DOOR HOLDER.

Applicationfiledianuary 14-; 1326'.

This invention relates to a door holder and it en'object oi the invention to provide a device of this hind which operetesto hold the door zrjzir es'when providing'tor ei'le-ctive ventiltttion of a room and perticrr liirly :i'cuhin or stateroom o'f zi HHLI'lHG'VBS- sel although it cziirbeeinployed with equal the room.

Another object" of the invention is :to pro vide a holder of this. kind? for. effectively ieintziining 2t door zijtir; said holder cornprisinp; a structure whereby-the SELIYIG' may be rendered inoperative o released from the door When the dooris" ini'ull closed pos. tion.

The onter wallfof the barrel. l'is provided with the longitudinally'specedspiral grooves The grooves 5' are reversely related so that St single bracket? maybe employed With equal facility at either the right or lett rertic-5d portionof the door D.

talidehly engaged Within the barrel 4 is e bolt 6. The outer end of the bolt 6 its exiul center is providedwith eiorwurdly .rected rcdnced extension or pin 'tpro ided at its outer end with an enlargement" or head 8 herein disclosed as or e diskflilze form. An operetingrodii) isengeged with the bolt 6' through. it slot 5 ofthe herrel 4t so that upoirswinging n'iovein n 3: oifthe rod 9,- the cain-ziction affordedhy'the side Walls o'f 'such slot 5 will either extend, orrretruct the-bolt 6i Sec-ured'to thewull W by the screws 10 or the like is at platen; said plate-being aligned With the P151403 2 of the applied ltirecli'eti B w-hen the door D is in its full closed position. This plate 11 is spaced a desired distance from the adjacent jiimb-of the door opening and is provided with" an extension 12 disposed'towurd'theidoor opening 'lh-mejor portion oat theextension 12 is undercut to provide what might be termed an internal recess or chamber 1 1, said recess or chamber also partially extending within the plate 11 proper as is clearly indicated in Figure 3. The extension 12 is also provided in its central part with an opening or slot 15 afi'ording communication to the recess or chamber l-t and the opposite sides of said opening 15 are defined by the outstanding lugs 16 which provide a mounting for the pivot pin 17. Substantially snugly fitting between the lugs 16 is a sleeve 18 freely mounted upon the pivot pin 17 whereby the sleeve 18 is capable of swinging or oscillating movement, the extent of which being limited by the outstanding and diametrically opposed lugs 19 carried by the sleeve 18 and having contact with the outer faces 0; the plate 11 and its extension 12. This limited swinging or oscillating movement of the sleeve 18 is in a direction toward or from the door opening.

At a point substantially midway between the lugs 19, the sl eve 18 is provided with the outstanding flat head 20 the axis of which being at right angles to the axis of the sleeve 18. Straddling this head 20 are the outstanding spaced ears 21 carried by the inner end of the elongated arm 22, said cars 21 being pivotally connected with the head 20 through the medium of the pivot member 23. The pivot member 28 is disposed at right angles to the pivot pin 1? whereby the arm 22 is supported for swinging movement in a vertical direction. The arm 22 has un hindered swinging movement in a downward direction into substantially a vertical position as illustrated in Figure 6, such limit of downward movement being effected by contact of the hinged end portion of the arm 22 with the lowermost lug 16. The head 20 is provided with a vertically disposed and substantially straight edge face 2a with which the pivoted end portion of the arm 22 con tacts upon upward swinging movement of said arm, such contact holding the arm against movement up beyond a substantially horizontal center. The arm 22 may be dis posed on a suitable curvature and is provided substantially the entire length thereof with a slot 25 of a width to receive the reduced extension or pin 7 of the bolt 6 but of a width less than the major diameter of the enlargement or head 8. The inner end, however, of the slot 25 is enlarged, as at 26, to readily permit said enlargement or head 8 to pass therethrough.

When the various parts of my improved holder are in applied or working position, the enlargement or head 8 of the bolt 6 can only be inserted through the enlarged end portion 26 of the slot 25 when the door 1) is in. its completely closed position.

When it is desired to swing the door into full open position, the arm is separated from the bolt 6 and caused to permit its downward position as illustrated in Figure 6 but, when it is desired to hold. the door in an ajar position, the door is con'ipletely closed whereupon the arm may be adjust ed to pass the enlargement or head or the bolt 6 through the enlarged portion 26 ot the slot 25 provided in the arm 22. it this time, it is also to be understood that the rod 9 has been operated to project the reduced extension or pin 7 carried by the bolt 6. As the door 1) is swung ajaras desired, the extension or pin 7 will ride outwardly along the slot and when the reeuired position ot the door is obtained the rod 9 rorced upwardly with the resultant action of retract ing the bolt 6 and causing the enlargement or head 8 of the bolt to coact with the adjacent end of the barrel. 1 to ellcraivel clan p the arm 22 and thus maintain the door in such position. it will be understood that the door may be held in an ajar position at any point along the slot 25 of the arm The lugs 19 or wings, which they may be called, provide means, as hereinbefore stated, to limit the swinging moven'ient of the sl eve 18. This is of particular tage t prevents any part directly associaten with said sleeve from being moved into position to hinder or obstructthe requisite swinging movement of the door D. The oppositely directed lugs or wings 19 are employed so that the arm 22 may be mounted at either side of a door opening as may be required lw hile in the accompany have illustrated the rod 9 as swing wardly with respect to the barrel 1-, it will be understood that the same can be employed with equal facility it arranged to swing upwardly and in which event the requisite clamping action will be upon the arm 22 when the rod is extending outwardly from the barrel 4t in substantf ally a horizontal direction and disposed in an upward vertical direction when the reduced extension or pin 7 is extended.

To the under surface of the outer wall of the recess or chamber 14: is secured an entremit ot a flat spring 27 the free end portion of which pressing against the inner peripheral portion of the sleeve 18 whereby said spring 27 serves as a brake to stop any loose motion that may be liable to occur.

TVith a door held ajar through the medium or one of my improved devices, it will be obvious that the door cannot be further opened from wi'hout to permit unauthorized entry as the arm 22, as hereinbefore stated, can only be separated or disengaged 135 constructed in accordance with my invention is particularly well adapted for use by reason of the convenience and facility with which it may be assembled and operated, and it will also be obvious that my invention is susceptible of some change and modification without departing from the principles and spirit thereof and for this reason 1 do not wish to be understood as lin'iiting myself to the precise arrangement and formation ot the several parts herein shown in carrying out my invention in practice except as hereinafter claimed.
