HINGE ATTACHMENT.

Application filed November 19, 1924, Serial No. 750,824, and in France November 30, 1923.

The hinges employed to secure the door leaf to its upright or doorpost, andchiefly in'motor vehicles, have-a drawback consisting in the fact that after a relatively short space of time, .for instance after a run of G-1000 miles, theY hinges voer a certain' play, so that. the doors are subject to a' jarring or rattling which occasions a disagreeable noise.

In order to obviate the said drawback, the applicant prevents the play between the two parts or plates of the hinge and the common axis or pin, by disposing a suitable elastic bushingor buffer upon the said axis. This method may be replaced or completed by a fastening or locking element, so that when the door is closed the said element will afford a rigid connection between the two hinge plates,- thus preventing all play between these two parts, whereby the rattling of the door will be entirely obvated.

Thesaid locking element comprises a nib or lstud having a conical or pyramidal form,

truncated or not; said stud is secured to one of the hin e plates and engages a recess'of correspon ing shape which is formed in the second hinge plate. It is `evident that in virtue of this additional element, the two hinge plates will be firmly held together, so that all lateral play of the door leaf will be obviated, as well as al1 longitudinal jarring. in the direction of travel of the vehicle upon which the said hinges are mounted, and the jarring in the vertical will also be eliminated.

The said hinge may be completed by a stop device for limiting the amount of -opening of the door leaf, this consisting of a suitable projection or beading which is cast in one w1th the male .lug or lgs of one hinge plate and whereof the end is adapted to enter into contact with a boss provided upon the second hinge'plate. v f

The following description with reference to the appended drawings shows the manv ner in which the said hinge device may be constructed.

"Figs 1, 2, 3and 4 of the drawings show by way for example the arrangement of the hinge device according to the invent-ion, these being respectively an elevational view, a plan view in the open position, and an elevational and a plan view in the closed position.

4a stop device which limits t Fig. 5 is a longitudinal section showing the hinge connected by means of a pin or axls.

Fig. 6 is a modification in which the said axis is provided Ywith a damping buffer or sleeve which is shown in section.

7 and 8 are modifications of the device shown in Fig. 6.

As shown in Figs. 1, 2, 3 and 4 the hinge plate a, which is secured for instance to the door leaf, is provided at the middle part with a tapered projection b or stud of metal (Steel for instance) or of any other hard or flexible substance such as hard rubber; the said projection is screwed by means of a screwthreadedand slotted extension e into a. tapped hole in the said hinge plate, and is held in the suitable adjusted position by means of the nut d.

The hinge plate f which is screwed to the door ost has formed therein a tapered hole g in w ch the stud b can be engaged withoutv play, as shown in Fig. v3.v

Obviously, the positions of the-said stud and hole may be inverted, and the former latter on the door.

The said hinge may be provided with a stop device which is constructed as follows. Upon its male portion n engaging the two lugs 7J of the female portion vf the hinge plate a is provided midway in its height with an enlarged part or projection h, Figs. 2,-3 and 4, extending for instance for 225 and ending in a flat portion which upon opening the two hinge plates `in the right angled position will enter into contact with a boss i forming a stop piece which is situated at' the corresponding height upon the female plate This arran ement forms he amount of opening of the door.

The twohinge plates, i. e., the plate a securedto the door leaf and the plate f secured to the doorpost, are connected to gether by an axis j, Fig. 5, consisting of a pin with a countersunk head .7c which is slotted at l; the lower screwthreaded end ymv of said axis is screwed into a tapped holol in the lower lug p ofthe female plate f. The hole in the lug n of the male plate a is given a somewhat larger diameter than that of the axis 7' in of a half-a-millimeter, fop example, so that may be vmounted on the doorpost and the .8."

order to allow a play the stud b willbe enabled to enter the recess g without play, whereby the parts will be tightly secured together.

In the modification shown in Fig. 6, the

central lug n of the plate a has formed thereplay the axis j connecting the two lugs of` the hinge.

Due to the arrangement of thebuiier upon the axis j, it is obvious that it will not be necessary to provide any play for the said axis in the sleeve g, since the shock-absorbing buffer of suitable elastic. material will afford for the said axis, which traverses the hole in the bottom part o with approximately 1 mm. play, all desired lateral motion, so that the said tapered stud can be engaged in its recess without play.

The said buier arrangement is particularly necessary in the case in which the hinge is provided with the above-mentioned stop device, for even inthe absence of the said stud, it will prevent the doorpost from being torn off.

Figs. 7 and 8 are modifications of Fig. 6 in which the rubber sleeve o1 extends through the entire space comprised between the twol o-uter lugs. This arrangement of hinge provided with a buier may be employed withor without the securing device Z2. p In order to facilitate. the penetration of the said stud and to provide for a still better securing of the parts, the tapered stud may be provided witha sheathing of an elastic or a moderately hard substance, such as a more or less hard rubber.

Obviously, the improved hinge device as hereinbefore described is susceptible of all suitable modications in detail without departing from the principle of the invention, and inparticular, the hinge may be provided or not with the said stop device.
