HENRY LOBDELL, OF TROY, NEYV YORK.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 286,027, dated October 2, 1883.
Application Hled August 15, 1883. (No model.)
,flo @ZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HENRY LonDELL, of the city of Troy, in the county of Rensselaer and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Curtain-Rollers; and ift-do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear,and exact description of the invention, that will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertaiiis to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompany` ing drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this speciiication.
Similar letters refer to similar parts in the several iigures therein.
My invention relates to improvements in curtain-rollers and the methods of securing curtains thereto; and it consists in providing the roller with inverted stationary tacks adapted to pierce and hold the curtain iiiplace.
The object of my invention is to provide a curtain-roller upon which a curtain may be quickly and securely adjusted and readjusted.
Figure l, Sheet l, of the drawings is a crosssection of the roller and a portion of the attached curtain, taken at the broken line :r y. Fig. 2, Sheet 1, is a cross-section of a portion ofthe curtain and slats removed from the roller. Fig. 3, Sheet 1, is a cross-section of the roller as it appears without the parts shown in Fig. 2. Fig. 4, Sheet -1, is a perspective of one of the two slats between which the curtain is secured. Fig. 5, Sheet l, is a perspective of the other sla-t, showing the retaining-tacks- Fig. 6, Sheet 1, is a plan view of a portion of the roller and curtain in place. Fig. 7, Sheet2,
.is a crosssection taken at broken line a l),
showing a modified form of my improvement. Fig. 8, Sheet 2, is a perspective view of one of the two parts of a sectional roller with retaining-tacks. Fig. 9, Sheet 2, is a perspective view, showing the other part.
A represents the roller, and E the curtain. The roller is provided with the groove B, which extends the whole length of the roller and has its opposite sides, or one of them, inclined inward, so that the mouth of the groove or opening is narrower than theend o r side of the groove nearest the center of the roller.
C is a beveled slat provided with the iuveited stationary tacks G, thepoiuts of which project from one side of the slat. The tacks are arranged at suitable intervals in a straight line lengthwise of the slat, which is preferably of the same length as the roller.
The method of attaching the curtain is as follows: First, lay the curtain down vupon one of its sides, then place the slat C upon the end to be attached to the roller,l with the points of the tacks downward and in such a position that the slat orline of tacks will extend across the curtain in a line at right angles to the longitudinal line of direction of the curtain.
Then press the tacks into or through the curtain, after which the slat, and with it Jthe curtain, is rolled over and the other slat laid upon it and pressed down upon the tacks until both slats are in close contact, with the curtain occupying the relative positions shown in Fig. 2. The slats are then slid into the groove B, where they are firmly held by the beveled shape of the parts, as before described, and shown in Fig. l.
A modied form of roller is shown in Figs. 7, 8, and 9. The roller A is made of two sections, H and I. One of the sections is pro vided with the inverted tacks G, arranged in a straight line, as shown. tachiiig the curtain isprecisely the saine as the one just described for attaching the curtain to the slats C and D. One of the slats may be provided with the projecting rib K and the other with the corresponding recess, J, the one fitting into the other to facilitate the proper union of the seetions.` vAfterthe sections have been put together with the curtain between, as shown in Fig. 7, they may be fastened together in the ordinary manner, or with screws, rings, or caps.
By my improved method of ranging inverted tacks in a straight line longitudinally of the roller and permanently fixing them thereto it is comparatively easy to properly adjust and iiX a curtain upon its roller. If the curtain is not properly adjusted to hang vertically it will roll up to one side, which necessitates a readjustment of the curtain upon the roller. \Vith my improved construction and arrangement of tacks this is easily done without removing or injuring any of the tacks, and the tacks are in no danger of being lost when the curtain is removed for the purpose oi'l washing.
The method of at- IOC I employ the term sectional roller77 to inof fixed projecting points or tucks extending clude all rollers not made of one solid cylinder. longitudinally of said roller, substantially as What' I claim'as new, and desire to secure described, and for the purposes set forth.
