J'QSEPH PLATT, OF DETROIT, MICHIGAN.

. PASS TRAY.

Application filed April 22,

My invention relates to a pass tray and an object of my improvements is to provide a movable receptacle by which money or valuables may be transmitted through a bullet proof partition without exposing an operator to an assault by a robber.

I accomplish this object in the apparatus illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which V Figure 1 is an outside elevational view of an apparatus embodying my invention and parts adjacent thereto.

Figure 2 is a section of the same perpendicular to the partition.

Figure 3 is a section of the tray on the line 3, 3, Figure 2.

Figure 4 is a detail section showing the pivotal connection of the tray.

Figure 5 is a detail section on the lines 5, 5,-Figure 2.

Figure 6 is a section similar to Figure showing a modified construction of the cover,

Figure 7 is a perspective view of the cover of Figure 6.

Figure 8 is a perspective view of the stationary portion J of the cover of Figure 2.

Y is a counter, and K a partition of bullet proof material. In the partition K, just abovethe counter Y and below a window is formed a rectangular opening of convenient size, generally extending for the breadth of the cashiers window.

Fitting in said opening is a tray X of the size and shape in cross section of the opening through the partition K. This is also made of bullet proof material and has a fiat portion which is vertical in the normal position and forms a part of the partition K. The tray X has two end plates and a bottom plate which is contiguous with the lower edge of said vertical ortion, extends inward and bends upward s antingly terminating in an inner edge that is horizontal and somewhat below the upper edge of said flat portion.

The tray X is pivoted to turn about an axis Z at its lower left hand corner and a stop V is provided to limit its inward motion of rotation.

J is a plate secured at its inner edge to the partition K and extending inward therefrom part Way over the open end of the tray X. R is a cover extending from the inner edge of said tray to and just beneath 1926. Serial No. 103,820. I

the inner edge of the plate J. The cover R is movable and may slide in the waysindicated at the edges of thesideplates of the tray X. Both the plate J and coverbR should be of transparent bullet proof material. I

v The method of operating the "above described -device is as follows:

The cover B, being in the position shown in Figure 2 and the customer Wishing to pass an object to the cashier, the tray :1s

tion to extend intothe interior of the tray X, as shown in Figure 6, so that a weapon cannot be used by a person outside of the partition against a person'inside of said partition.
