HINGE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 322,239, dated July 14, 1885. Application filed March 1885. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, FRANK W. BEOKWITH, of Detroit, in the county of Wayne and State of Michigan, have invented new and useful Improvements in Hinges; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification.

This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in the construction of corher-hinges for trunks; and it consists in the peculiar combinations and the construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter more fully described and claimed.

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a corner.

of a trunk provided with my improved hinge. Fig. 2 is a section on theline an ac, Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a'detail showing the inner faces of the two leaves in perspective and the pintle removed. Fig. 4 is a vertical section through the hinges,

open.

' In the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification, A B represent the F is the pin, preferably made of malleable iron, which, when the two parts of the hinge are engaged, is inserted beneath the hookknuckles 0 and E and in front of the hookstud D, while the ends of the pin rest upon the leaf B.

To prevent the accidental displacement of the pin after it has been inserted in the hinge, I provide such pin with an arm, G, which is turned down upon the leaf B, and said arm is then bent so as to engage with ahook-stop, a,

. upon the face of the leaf.

It will be observed that the double hook E is cut away sufficiently between the hooks so as to allow the hinge to open at right angles opened.

In practice the parts A B are rigidly setop of the trunk from falling clear back when cured to the top and body of the trunk in the usual manner, so that when the cover is placed on top of the body the two parts of the hinges will engage.- The pin is then inserted and secured as described.

pin can readily be removed by disengaging it from the lock,and withdrawn, when the cover can be removed.

If desired, a hole may be made in the arm of the pin,to be brought coincident with a hole in the leaf below, through which anail can be driven.

If desired, the pin may be made straight and have a hole in its end through which to drive a nail for the purpose of securing the pin, without departing from the spirit of my in vention; buttheconstructionherein described I consider the most preferable.

WVhat I claim as my invention isk 1. A hinge consisting of the leaves A B,

provided with suitable knn'cklesfl) E, in combination with a removable pin, F, provided with an arm, G, and stop a, substantially as l 1 and for the purposes described.

2. A hinge consisting of the plates AB, provided with the knuckles O E and stud-hook D, in combination with a removable pin, F, adapted to be looked upon one of the leaves,

substantially as and for the purposes specified.
