CURTAIN POLE. (Application filed Am. 29, 1901.
Nrrn TATES XVILLIAM C. SHADDLE, OF SHERIDAN, PENNSYLVANIA.
SPECIFICATION formingpart of Letters Patent N 0. 684,113, dated October 8, 1901.
Application filed April 29, 1901. Serial No. 57,978. (No model.)
more particularly to that class of curtain-poles wherein the use of pins and rings is entirely dispensed with.
The invention, briefly described, consists of a curtain-pole having a recess formed therein extending in alineinent with said pole, said recess having inwardlyextending beveled walls for the purpose of receiving a strip of metal, between which the curtain is clamped and properly retained in position.
The invention has for its further object to construct a certain pole of the above-described class that will be extremely simple in construction, strong, durable, comparatively inexpensive to manufacture, and one wherein a curtain may be easily removed when desired.
With the above and other objects in view the invention consists in the novel combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more fully described, and specifically pointed out in the claim.
In describing the invention indetail reference is had to the accompanying drawings, forminga partof this specification,and wherein like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views, in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view of the curtain-pole, the metal fastening removed therefrom. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the metal fastening-strip. Fig. 3 is an enlarged end view of the curtain-pole, fastening-strip, and curtain as the same appear when the parts are connected together in proper position. Fig. 418 a vertical sectional view showing the position of the parts when secured together.
In the drawings the referencemumeral 1 indicates a curtain-pole, having formed therein a longitudinal recess 2, said recess having beveled walls 3, which. extend in opposite directions from the edge of the pole. cess 2 forms shoulders 4.
The reference-numeral 5 indicates a strip of metal Which is arc-shaped is cross-section. This metal is of sufficient resiliency to allow the same to be placed in the recess, the ends thereof abutting against the inclined walls 3 of the shoulderswh'which effectually retainthe same.
The reference-numeral 6 represents a curtain which is clamped between the securingstrip 5 and the body portion of .the curtainpole.
The manner of applying a curtain is as follows: The fastening-strip 5 is placed in the desired position, with the curtain draped over the same, as shown in Fig. 3 of the drawings. The device is then placed in proper position and by a slight pressure the upper and lower edges of the fastening-strip will spring into their proper position within the recess and will be effectually retained therein.
The many advantages obtained by the use of my improved pole will be readily apparent from the foregoing description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings.
It will be noted that various changes may be made in the details of construction without departing from the general spirit of my invention.
Having fully described my invention, What Iclaim as new, and desire to secure by Letters This re- Patent, is-- In a device of the character described, a curtain-pole having a segmental recess formed in its periphery throughout its entire length, inwardly-extending beveled walls formed in said recess, in combination with a fastening-strip of the same length as the recess, said strip being arc-shaped in cross-section, the said strip adapted to have the curtain folded thereover and to have its edges pressed toward one another whereby the strip may be inserted into the recess,and thereafter have its edges spring apart so as to press against said walls by the resiliency of the strip, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
WILLIAM C. SHADDLE.
