vertical movement ofthehandle ,membera se'KV iipper and lower horizontal flanges 27 and The upper flange 27 is provided with an o'set upwardly extending tubular stem 28 for receiving a vconnecting rod 29 therein. Said rod' 29 extends upwardly through a guide 80 andy loosely into an opening 3l formed in the lower end portion of the bolt 20 or it mayimpinge a lower surface of the bolt 20; C
As thus constructed the use in grasping the handle to open the door will move the handle member upwardly to unlatch the bolt and the door may then be slid to open position. In moving to open position and in the event that a similar stop member is used atthe'opposite end of the track, the head. ot
the bolt will ride up on the curved portion 17 and drop into the locking recess. In moving the doorto closed position the same operation as before described is repeated.
If desired'one of the stop members 1.6 may be mounted on the' track intermediate the track ends so that the door may be locked in partially closed position.
In moving the door from partially closed position an upward movement of the handle member will unlatch the bolt which will pass over the stop member at the portion marked 17 and the door can be moved to a fully l closed position.
From they foregoing description it will be Seen that the door hanger lock and release is of Very simple construction and is well adapted for the purpose described.
What we claim as our invention is:
*1.L In combination, a track, a door having suspension rollers coacting with saidl track, a stop member disposed adjacent to said track, a latch carried by said door and cooperable with said stop member, a Vhandle for moving said door located remote from said latch, said handle having an elongated grip ortion spaced from said door, a tubular mem er embracing said grip portion and slidable therealong, said tubular member having a lateral projection extending in close proximity to said door, and a rigid connection between said projection and said latch lying close to said door. l f
2. In combination, a track, ya door having suspension rollers coacting with said track, a. stop member disposed adjacent to said track, said stop member having a'recess and portionsof dil'erent height disposed on op.-
posite sides of said recess, a latch carried by said door and movable into said stop member recess over the lower of said portions, ya han# dle for moving saiddoor located remote from said latch, said rhandle having an elongated grip portionspaced from said rdoor,-a.tubu lar member embracing said grip portion and slidable therealong, said tubular member having aV lateral projection extending in close proximity to said door, and a rigid connec-V tion between said projection and said latch lying close to said door.
3. In combination, a track, a door having suspension rollers coacting with said track, a stop member disposed adjacent to said track, said stop member having a recess and portions of different height disposed on opposite sides of Said recess, a latch carried by said door and movable thereby into said stop member vrecessy overl the lower of said porv tions, and means for releasing said latch from said recess.
In testimony whereof we atlix our signatures. f
