1 J. DAY, Cornice Hooks.

No. 229,873. Patented July 13,-188 0.

by the brace.




SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent 1\l'o. 229,873, dated July 13, 1880.

Application filed November 3, 1879.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, JOHN DAY, of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented an Improvement in (lornice-Hooks, of which the following is a specification.

Screw cornice hooks as at present constructed and in use consist of the ordinary straight screw-hook having the turned-up end, and the same hook has been provided with an angular brace, one end of which is secured to the window-casing, and the other end has an eye, through which the straight hook is placed, the same forming a frictional support. This eye, however, was liable to slip and allow the hook to bend downwardly. My improved cornice-hookis made for overcoming this objection and rendering the hook rigid. The parts are easily placed together and secured in position. I employ a brace with a fork at one end, and the cornice-hook is flattened at one portion, so that it will pass into the fork and be held up In the drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation of my improved cornice-hook with the cornicerod and window-casing in section, and Fig. 2 isa plan of the same.

The cornice-hook a is made, as usual, witha screw end for securing the same to the window-casing, and I have shown the other end as having the loop b and screw-clamp c supporting and securing the cornice-rod d. I have also shown by dotted line, Fig. 1, the turned-up end of the ordinary hook.

The cornice-hook a is flattened orm ade thin-- ner at c in a diagonal direction, the thickness corresponding to the opening in the forked end f of the brace g, and said brace g is secured at h by a screw to the window-casing.

The flattened parteof the hook to, restingin the forked end f of the brace g, makes a secure connection that will not slip out of place, be-- cause the thicker parts of the cornice-hook are at each side of the fork and the weight of the cornice-rod keeps the parts together.

I am aware that ornamental brackets have been made with a brace that passes at the end into notches in the other part of the bracket; but the same is not adapted to a cornice-hook.

I claim as my invention- The cornice-hook a, having a screw at one end and flattened at the sides near the other end, in combination with the brace 9, having a fork at one end to receive the flattened portion of the cornice-hook and an eye at h for an attaching-screw, substantially as set forth.

Signed by me this 27th day of October, A.
