SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 765,753, dated July 26, 1904.

Application filed November 18, 1903. Serial No. 181,575. (No model.)

To [ZZZ whom it may concern.-

Be it knownthat I, JOSEPH W. SEIBERT, a citizen of the United States, residing at YVashington, in the county of WVashington and State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Curtain-Poles, of which improvement the following is a specification.

This invention relates to an improved curtain-pole; and it consists of a pole divided longitudinally into two equal sections, the ends of said pole being reduced in diameter and fitted with caps binding the two sections together, also one or more clamp-pieces arranged along the length of the pole, together with the certain details of construction and combinations of parts, as will be fully described hereinafter.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of my improved curtainpole, the same being constructed and arranged in accordance with my invention. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a portion of the pole, the one section separated from the other and having the cap and clamp removed therefrom. Fig. 3 is a side elevation of one of the middle clamps. Fig. 4 is-a sectional elevation of one of the end caps. Fig. 5 is an end view of the same.

To put my invention into practice, and thereby provide a curtain-pole in which neither pins nor hooks are used to attach the curtain 6 thereto, I form from suitable material a pole 1, formed in two sections, which when placed together will be cylindrical in form, each section being semicircular in cross-section. These sections 1 are formed with reduced cylindrical ends 2 for the purpose of engaging with cap-pieces, the same consisting of a body portion 4 and a shank havinga central bore 5, the said bore being of the same diameter as the reduced ends 2 of the pole and are adapted to slip over the said reduced ends and bind the pole together. Formed at the middle of each section of the pole 1 and on the external surface in a vertical position are slots 3, which in connection with a clamp 7 serve as a means for binding the middle portion of the pole together. This clamp consists of the body portion 7, a fork 8 to engage with the slots 3, and an inner spring 9, attached to one of the prongs by means of a rivet 10.

In operation the pole is taken apart by removing the end pieces 4 and the clamp 7. The curtain 6 is now placed between the sections of the pole 1, the end pieces 4. placed in position, as shown at Fig. l of the drawings. The clamp 7 is now sprung into the slots 3, the spring 9 binding and holding the clamp in position. It is obvious that two or three of these clamps may be used when the poles v I are above the ordinary length.

Various slightmodifications and changes may be made in the details of construction without departing from the spirit of the invention. Therefore I do not wish to confine myself to the exact construction shown and described.

Having thus described my invention, what and a spring attached to the inside of one of the said prongs.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto signed my name in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.


In presence of FRED. O. HENZI, M. HUNTER.
