' SLIDING DOOR LATCH WITH DEAD LOCK Filed March 26, 1957 1 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 12 50 J 03522; INVENTOR. /uenex; iee/er/ War/e/ r3? U BY United States Patent .The invention relates to door locks and has particular reference to a door lock especially designed for a sliding door and which incorporates supplemental features including a dead lock mechanism and a structure such as to permit back-settingthe hub.

Recent trends. in building construction and especially in the constructionof residences has pointed to a very marked degree. toward economy in the use of space.

Although sliding doors have been known and used for a great many years, there has been a marked increase in the employment of sliding doors in current building projects because of thefact that they make it possible to employ tight spaces to better advantage. As a consequence the accelerating use of sliding doors has given rise to new wants and problems in connection with latches for such doors. To a large extent heretofore sliding doors have been used for passage only and therefore have not needed any more than a fiush door opening pull' of handle. In some instances simplified passage latch sets have sufficed. With an increasing demand, however, for sliding door latches capable of latching a door in closed position, new demands have pointed'to a need for sliding door latches capable of barring the door from being opened on one side. Where such doors need to be barred it also becomes advisableto so construct the latch or lock set that it cannot be opened by unauthorized persons. From the very nature of the sliding door arrangement dead latching sets, though needed, have presented design problems not. readily met by techniques heretofore employed.

It is therefore among the objects of the invention to providea new and improved sliding door latch of high quality construction which comprises a relatively complete latch in that it is one capable of latching a sliding door in closed position and which can be easily manipulated so as to latch and unlatch the .door by means of a handle or lever sufiiciently compact to beflush with the door surface and therefore not impair the sliding of such door into its panel when opened.

Another object of the invention is to provide a new and improved sliding door latch which is compact in its structural arrangement thereby making it possible to install the latch in lightweight. sliding doors of relatively thin section but which though compact will be positive in its action.

-Still another object of the invention is to provide a new and improved sliding door latch which can be shifted 'to latched and unlatchedposition and which has built into it a dead locking arrangement such as to bar the door when latched against access from one side.

*Still another object of the inventionis toprovide a new and: improved sliding door latch set which is versatile in its arrangement, thereby to permit a back-setting of the hub location throughout a considerable range to'facilitate and simplify'the accurate installation of such device in a slidi'ngdoor. t

Still further among the objects of the invention is to .providea new and improved sliding .door latch which "employs a hook capableof'being extended-to latched position andretracted to"a*conceale'd position and which in "ice extended position will retract to withdrawn position upon sliding impact of the latch hook when extended to avoid damage to the mechanism.

With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the construction, arrangement and combination of the various parts of the device whereby the objects contemplated are attained, as hereinafter set forth, pointed out in the appended claims and illustrated in the accompanying drawings.

In the drawings:

Figure l is a vertical sectional view of a sliding door and door jamb showing the sliding door latch in elevation.

v Figure 2 is a side elevational view of interiorportions of the door latch in extended position. I

Figure 3 is a cross-sectional view taken on the line 3-3 of Figure 2.

Figure 4 is a view similar to Figure 3 with portions partially broken away and showing the latch in retracted position.

Figure 5 is an exploded view of parts of the deviceon the near side of a vertical center line as viewed in Figure 4.

Figure 6 is an exploded view of parts on the far side of a vertical center line.

In an embodiment of the invention chosen for the purpose of illustration there is shown a sliding door 10 adapted to fit against a door jamb 11. The sliding door is provided with an edgewise extending opening 12'at an edge 13 of the door. A recess 14 is located in the door jamb immediately opposite the opening 12 for the accommodation of a latch plate 15 serving its conventional purpose.

The latch mechanism is shown contained in a frame or housing 16 comprising opposite parallel side walls l7 and 18 and a transverse end wall 19. The side walls are shown attached to the end wall by means of pins 20 and are attached to each other by spacing pins 21. The side walls and end walls when assembled form in effect a chamber 22 therebetween for reception of catch means comprising sundry working parts of the device. When in position in the door 10, the end wall 19 is flush with an edge 23 of the door. Recessed trim plates 24 and 25 provide for a finger hold in opening and closing the door and further provide space for a suitable latch handle, not shown.

Located in the lower portion of the chamber 22 is a pair of pivot plates 26 and 27. These pivotplates are elongated in character, as is clearly apparent in Figure 2, and are pivotally mounted at lower ends thereof to the side walls 17 and 18 bymeans of a pivot pin 28.

At the upper right portion of the pivot plates, as shown in Figure 2, for example, a latch pivot pin 29 serves to attach a latch book 30 to the pivot plates. As shown to good efifect in Figure 6, the latch book 30 is provided with an inner extension 31 in which is an elongated pivot slot 32 whichis adapted to receive the latch pivot pin 29.

A hair spring 33 having one end 34 pressed against a bracket 35 of the pivot plate 26 has a bent end 36 received in a spring notch 37 in the latch book. The tension in the spring tends normally to rotate the latch hook 30 in a counterclockwise direction, as viewed, for example, inFigure 2.

In the end wall 19 is an opening 19' through which the hook extends. An opening 15 is provided in the latch plate 15 for reception of the hook in extended position.

To move the latch hook between the extendcd position shown in Figure 2 and the retracted position shown in Figure 4, there is provided a hook actuator linkage comprising a hub member 40 which is received both rotatably and slidablyat its opposite ends withinhub recesses 41 and-42, respectively, in the side walls 17 and 18. Protrusions 43 serve to prevent the hub member from being pushed out of the hub recesses. The hub member has cylindrical projections 44 at the ends between which is an enlargement 45 which assists in positioning the hub member in the recesses.

" Extending radially outwardly from the hub member is an arm 46 at the outer end of which is'attached the upper end of a link 47 means of a pin 48. At its lower end the link is attached by means of a pin 49 to a cam plate 50. The cam plate in turn is pivotally mounted by aid of a pivot aperture 51 to the latch pivot pin 29.

In the cam plate 50 is a cam opening 52 which serves to define intersecting camways 53 and 54. To attach the cam plate to the latch hook there is provided a lock .pin retainer block 56 having a slot 57 at one end adapted to receive the latch pivot pin 29. Projecting out- :wardly from one side of the lock'pin retainer block is a boss 58 which is adapted to fit slidably within the pivot slot 32 of the latch hook 30. A pin 59 extends through the boss and also through the cam opening 52 in the cam plate. This same pin 59 also extends outwardly at both ends :to a location flush with the outside surfaces of the side walls 17 and 18, as shown in Figure 3. A square aperture 17 in the wall 17 and 18' in the wall 18 provides access to the pin 59 and a space within which the pin can move.

From the retracted position of the latch hook shown in Figure 4 by manipulation of the hub member 40 through the agency of a conventional handle, not shown, inserted in a hub slot 60, the hub is rotated in a clockwise direction. This rotation elevates the link 47 which in turn pulls upon the cam plate 50 causing engagement of the camway 54 withthe pin 59. Lifting the pin as described serves to provide a pull upon the boss 58 which fitting in the pivot slot 32 lifts the latch hook to the position shown in Figure 2.

vIt will be noted that there are provided in the pivot plates 26 and 27, respectively oblique slots 61 and 62.

At the upper ends of the slots are intercommunicating dead lock recesses 63 and 64. When the pin 59 is elevated by manipulation of the hub in the manner described to the upper ends of the slots 61 and 62, a coiled spring 66, pressing at one end against the pin 29 and at the other end against the boss 58, tends to urge the pin 59 in a direction from right to left as viewed in Figure 2, thereby to enter the dead locking recesses 63 and '64. It will be appreciated that by reason of the length of the pin 59 it extends at its opposite ends slidably with in the oblique slots 61 and 62. Thus positioned in the dead lock recesses the pin 59 prevents rotation of the latch hook 30 in a counterclockwise direction about the latch pivot pin 29. Hence, the latch hook cannot be pried downwardly by manipulation ofa screw driver or similar object slid between the door and the door jamb. When the latch hook is in the position shown in Figure 1 with an upwardly open recess 66, it permits a tip 67 of the hook to fall behind an appropriate portion of the latch plate 15, as shown in Figure 1.

-When the latch hook is to be returned from extended position to retracted position, the hub member is rotated in a counterclockwise direction. This serves to depress the link 47 and the cam plate 50. As the cam plate is depressed, the camway 53 pressing against the pin 59 tends to cam the pin rearwardly, thereby compressing the spring 65 until the pin 59 is moved from left to right far enough to fall out of the dead lock recesses 63 and 64. Thereafter by continuing rotation of the hub 40, the pin 59 is caused to slide down the oblique slot 61 and 62 aided-by action of the hair spring 33. As a consequence, movement of the pin 59 downwardly 'moves' the boss 58' in a similar'direction and causes the latch hook 30 to berotated in a counterclockwise direction from the position of Figure 2 to the position of Figure 4. The hair spring will tend to retain the latch hook in the retracted position until lifted therefrom by manipulation of the hubmember.

It is to be noted that because of the linkage attached to the hub member it is permissible to shift the hub member to virtually any position between opposite ends of the hub recesses 41 and 42. This permits considerable latitude in the location of the trim plates 24 and 25. Though shifted to a considerable extent as described, the operation of the latch mechanism to -shift the latch hook between extended and retracted position is in no way altered or modified. 1.

To add to the effectiveness of a proper installation resulting in a snug fit of the latch hook in engagement with the latch plate. or strike plate, an adjustment is provided to move the latch hook toward or away from the latch plate in extended position. This is accomplished by employment of a bolt 70 which has a head end 71 rotatably mounted in the transverse end wall 19 and has a threaded end threadably secured in the bracket 35.' When the bolt is rotated, the head end remains fixed and the bracket 35 in consequence is moved toward the right or left depending upon the direction of rotation of the bolt. If movement be toward the right as viewed in Figures 1 and 2, the pivot plates 26 and 27 as a consequence will be rotated in a clockwise direction about the pin28. This causes a displacement of the pin 29 toward the right which results in drawing the tip 67 of the latch bolt to a position closer to the transverse end wall 19 of the housing. Conversely, the position of the latch hook can be adjusted whereby to move the tip further toward the left by rotation of the bolt 70 in an opposite direction, causing a displacement of the pin 29 toward the left.

There has accordingly been described herein a complete sliding door latch structure which is capable of being manipulated from either side, if desired. Under those circumstances the conventional handle with an appropriate spindle or shaft would be provided on'both sides of the door. The structure, however, is one which,

if desired, could employ a handle on one side only, in which event a trim plate on the opposite side would be closed so as to inhibit access to the hub member. In such an arrangement the latch is proof against tampering by action of the dead locking elements which would prevent unlatching the latch hook by some instrument from the outside. It will be appreciated that because of having a structure and arrangement as herein described, the door latch can serve just as readily on either edge of a sliding door, depending upon the direction in which the door is made to slide. Fitting trim plates to the structure need not necessitate any departure from conventional procedure.

Further by constructing the latch hook as shown with the extension 31 of about one-half the thickness of the latch hook, space is provided to receive the lock pin retainer block 56, andthe cam plate, thereby making possible a very thin structure which permits the latch to be used in relatively thin sliding doors without a weakening of the door adjacent the opening provided for reception of the latch. Suflicient freedom of movement is built into the combined mechanical elements so as to avoid the necessity of close tolerances either with respect to fabrication, assembly, or installation on the door without impairment of positive action over expected long periods of use.

While I have herein shown and described my invention in what I have. conceived to be the most practical and preferred embodiment, it is recognized that departures may be made therefrom within the scope of my invention, which is not to be limited to the details disclosed herein but is to be accorded the full scope of the claims so as to embrace any and all equivalent devices.
