My invention relates to improvements in door stops and, more particularly, to adjustable door stops Anobject of this invention is to provide an extremely simple and highly efficient door stop having a removable pintle and applicable to any one of the hinges of a easement window.
A further object is to provide a novel door stop that is readily adjustable to stop a door in any desired open position. g
Other objects of the invention will be apparent fromrthe following'deseription, reference being had to the drawing.
To the above end, the invention consists of the devices and combination of devices hereinafter described and defined in the claims.
the accompanying drawing, which illustrates one embodiment of invention, lillie characters indicate like"` partsthrougliout the several views.
Referring to the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a plan View of the improved door stop applied to a hinge attaching a door to a door frame in a door opening in a wall structure, said door and wall structure being fragmentarily shown in section;
Fig. 2 is an elevational View of the parts shown in Fig. 1;
Fig. 3 is a view corresponding to Fig. 1, except it is somewhat more fragmentary with the door stopped in an open position by the novel door stop;
Fig. 4 is a plan View of the door stop, partly in plan and partly in section, removed from the hinge; and
Fig. 5 is an elevational View of one of the stop pins.
For the purpose of showing the novel door stop applied to stop the opening of a door, there is shown fragmentarily in the drawing a wall structure including studs 5 to which is applied, at a door opening, lath and plaster or a wall board 6, a door frame 1 in the door opening and having a doorv stop 8, and a door 9 attached by hinges I0, only one of which is shown, to the door frame 1. One yof the upright members II of a casing is secured to the door frame 'I and wall structure 5 6. The hinge I 0 has a removable pintle I2 provided with a head I3 that limits the endwise movement of said pintle into the aligned holes in the interlocked lugs I4 of the leaves of hinge I0.
Referring now in detail to the improved door stop which includes a pair of wings I5 and IB pvotally connected by a hollow rivet I1, the intera m, nel diameter 0f which is. appresimately thesame ,as iheelisned holes in the hinge lugs I4. the pivtelly @animated end .portions Qf the. Wings l5 and Iiware` inwardly offset, respectively. Inte-r gral with the Outer end perdons ,ef eaehwns I5-IB is a pressureplate IShand i9, respectively. These' Pressure plates I-IS .dependrom the innerlengitudinal edge portions of the wings 15J-.5 and .am 05S?? 'hlefltmk .,Eaf! .Wing Vlf3-I6 andV its pressure. plate Iii-els is formed .of a single piece of flat metah y The .improves dem" .Step ,fartherissludesa Serine 20 formed @f e single Piece .0f having at its. longitudinal Center a @Oil that affords .ari eye 2I of substantially the same diameter as the rivet '1f T0 aitechhe improved deer swiitoihe hinge if theeiiiile .l2 remeras frem the Hinge lugs I4, by lifting, and inserted endwise through the hollow. rivet "and th v? 2l irl-ih@ Series 215 with the endprtiornsofv said spring ,overlapping the pressure 'plates 8`4-I9 nvtheir `outer faces'.
The pintle I2 is next replaced in the hinge lugs I 4 with wing I5 extending transversely of the door 9 and wing I6 extending transversely of the casing II. The spring 20 is under strain to hold the wing I5 with its pressure plate pressed against the door 9, and also holds the wing I6, with its pressure plate I9 pressed against the casing II. The offset pressure plates l8-I9 prevent the wings I5-I6 from coming in contact with door 9 and the casing I I. With the pintle I2 replaced in the hinge lugs I4, the spring 20 and the rivet I'I are held between the uppermost hinge lug I4 and the head I3 of the pintle I2.
The improved door stop further includes a depending -stop pin 22 on the wing I6 that is er1- gaged by the wing I5 during the opening of the door 9 to stop the same in a predetermined open position. The stop pin 22 has a screw-threaded upper end portion 23, of reduced diameter, insertable in any one of a plurality of longitudinally spaced holes 24 in the Wing I 6 with which it has threaded engagement. Obviously, by inserting the stop pin 22 in any one of the holes 24, the opening of the door 9 may be stopped in a multiplicity of different open positions.
To secure a closer adjustment of the door stop from that obtained by shifting the stop pin 22 in the holes 24, stop pins of different diameters may be used. One of these stop pins is shown in Fig. 5 and designated by the numeral 25.
From the above description and the accompanying drawing, it is evident that the improved 3 door stop is capable of modifications as to construction and arrangement of parts.
What I claim is:
1. A stop of the class described, including a pair of wings having overlapping portions provided with aligned holes through which the pintle of a hinge attaching a door to a support may be inserted, said wings being constructed and arranged the one to engage the support as a base of resistance and the other Wing being held for movement with the door, and stop means for limiting the movement of the last noted wing by the opening of the door to stop said door in a predetermined open position, said stop means being adjustable to vary the stopped open yposition of the door.
2. A stop of the class described, including a pair of Wings having overlapping portions provided with aligned holes through which the pintle of a hinge attaching a door to a support may be inserted, said wings being constructed and arranged, the one to engage the support as a base of resistance and the other wing to overlap the door and be engaged thereby, spring means, which is normally under strain to move the last-noted wing toward the door to be engaged thereby durling the opening of the door and moved therewith, and stop means for limiting the movement of the last noted wing by the opening of the door to stop said door in a predetermined open position saidstop means being a pin attached to the first noted wing and extending in the path 'of movement of the last noted wing.
3. A stop of the class described, including a pair of Wings having overlapping portions provided with aligned holes through which the pintle of a hinge attaching a door to a support may be inserted, said wings being constructed and arranged, the one4 to engage the support as a base of lresistance and the other Wing to overlap the door and be engaged thereby, spring means,
which is normally under strain to move the last noted Wing toward the door to be engaged thereby during the opening of the door and moved therewith, one of the wings having a row of longitudinally spaced holes, and stop means held in any one of said holes to be engaged by the other Wing during the opening of the door and stop the same.
4. A stop of the class described, including a. pair of wings, a tubular rivet pivotally connecting the wings and through which rivet the pintle of a hinge attaching a door to a support may be inserted, each wing having on its outer end portion an upright pressure plate, one of which is constructed and arranged to engage said support as a base of resistance and the other wing being constructedan'd arranged to be engaged by the door during its opening movement and be moved therewith, a spring Wire coiled at its intermediate portion to provide an eye through which said pintle may be inserted with the end portions of said spring wire bearing on thepres'sure plates and normally under strain to move one of the wings toward the support and the other toward the door, the Wing having the pressure plate engageable with the support being provided with a row of longitudinally spaced holes, and a stop pin insertable in any one of the holes and having screw-threaded engagement with said wing, said stop pin being in the path fof movement of the other Wing to stop the opening of the door.l
