UNITED STATES JOHN EDMUND BELLIVEAU, OF HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA, CANT ADA.
Application filed November 4, 1921, Serial No. 512,902, and in wa September 23, 1921 My invention relates to hinges that may be usedon doors, covers or other similar object-s capable of swinging.
The object of my invention is to devise a 5 hinge of great rigidity especially when applied to thin material where screws aiford very little grip on account of their shortness. v
A further object is to construct a hinge having double leaves united by an integral strap, one of the leaves carrying integral pintle sockets or socket.
In the drawings forming part of the following description, where similar reference symbols refer to similar parts throughout the several views:
Figure 1 shows one part of my double leaf hinge blank, and
Fig. 2 shows the counterpart.
Fig. 3 shows the leaf blanks folded ready to receive the pintle.
Fig. l shows a hinge as applied to a door or casement.
Fig. 5 shows the application of one leaf the hinge is intended to beapplied; -The counterpart blank shown in Fig. 2 designated by P) has a cross cut 4 and longitudinal cuts 5 corresponding in lengthto the cut 2, F 1, leaving a strap 6 to form a pintle socket. InFig. 3 the blanks are shown bent, the bends being made at the dotted lines 7- -7, Figs. 1 and'2, forminga part hinge,
of inyhinge to a single leaf counterpart. I i Fig. 6 shows my hinge applied to a chest each having leaves 8, Q, separated by straps l0 and 11 having sockets 6 and 3, 3, into which a pintle such as 12 maybe inserted.
In Fig. 4 myhinge is .shown appiied toa door, window or similar swinging part 13 having a casement of equal thickness. In such cases the leaves on both parts of the hinge are equally distant. It. will be under-- stood, of course, that should the casement andthe swinging part be of unequal thickness, the hinge would be shaped to accommodate both these parts. In Fig. 5 the hinge is composed of one part 15 constructed according to my invention, the counterparts 16 having but a singleleaf. This form may be used where the thickness of the material permits the use of long screws. 'In Fig.6
the hinge is shown applied to a box where the edge ofthe' cover is flush with the outer side of the box wall. As illustrated, the screw holes in the hinge leaves are shown staggered, but it will be understood that in cases where the leaves should "be held by *ivets, these holes would be made to coincide. l I The above description of my hinge is deemed sufiiciently detailed to enable 'a clear understanding of its'constructionjand working. Many variations may, however, be made withoutydeparting from the spirit of my invention as covered by the following claim. I'claim:
Ina hinge construction, a hinge blank having a back and two sides integral therewith,
an opening positioned centrally of said back, a pintle socketproje'cting outwardly of said back and integral with one of the-sides in combination with ,a second blank having a oack and-two sides, and pintle sockets integral with one of the sides extending outwardly of said back and on each side thereof In witness whereofI have'heli'eunto, set my hand. v u 'J E.
