Letters Patent No. 62,947, dated March 19, 1867.
TO WI-IOM IT MAY CONCERN:'
Be it known that I, yCHARLES H. EDDY, of the city of Auburn, in Cayugaeounty, and State of New York, have invented a new and improved Mode of Fastening Blinds and Window Shutters by means of a lever and hooks held in position by the lower easement of the sash; and I do hereby declare the following to be a. full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, making a part of this specifica-tion, and to the letters of reference marked thereon.
The object of this invention is to prevent the shutters being opened from the outside of the building, by means of hooks engaging loops or offsets secured to the blinds or shutters, and when the said hooks are enga-ged with lsaid oisets or loops they are held in that condition by means of the lower easement of the sash, and are by that means held firmly against any attempt from without to disengage them.
In order that others skilled in the art may know howto makeand use my invention, Iwill proceed te describe its construction and mode of operation. In the drawing- Figure l represents a window with the blinds or shutter fra-mes A and B open.
l The `loops C D on the same engage the notchesE and F onthe outward end of4 the lever G. jointed to the sill H of the window frame at G, as shown in g. 2, by means of the staple I.
Said lever is rlhe end J, of
the lever G, extends under the lower easement of thewindow sash K, and when the blinds or shutters are closed,
together, and the hooks E and F engage the loops C and D, the lower sash frame is let down upon the end J, of the lever G, and the hooks are by this means held firmly in the said loops and cannot be released therefrom until the said sash is raised from said lever from the inside. The essence of my invention consists in fastening the blinds closed by the aid of the sash as above described.
Having above described the construction and mode of operating my invention, what I claim as new, and wish to secure by Letters Patent, is-
The shutter or blind-fastening composed of lever G provided with hooks E Fattached to the sill H, in. combination with notches C D on the blind, to be operated substantially as and for the purpose set forth.
CHARLES H. EDDY.
