This operation may be suitably rcarried out asby means of a putty knife.
It will be seen that the construction is such that the Vclip is securely held in position by reason of its loo portions entering between the sash bar weg'and the adjacent edge of the glass. It will also be seen that this clip lo'secnrely holds the pane in positionfvan'd furthermore that it takes Careof panes of various i thicknesses. It willrbe further seen that the construction of clip is such that it can not be snapped into place, so that the corners of the ane cannot be chipped and that the clip bears upon the pane at a point laterally spaced from its edge yso that thepane is further protected from being damaged by the '2 What I claim as my inventionis:
