MARTIN MOHR, OF NEWPORT, KENTUCKY, ASSIGNOR OF ONE-THIRD TO GEORGE B. POOLE, OF CINCINNATI, OHIO.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Application flled September 13, 1905. Serial No. 278,292.
To all whom t 77mg/ concern,.-
Be it known that I, MARTIN MOHR, a citizen of the United States, residing at Newport, in the county of Campbell, in the State of Kentucky, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Locks, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in locks, and has for its obj ect to provide a lock with a guideway in which a tag is adapted to be secured and one hat is especially adapted to be used on mailags.
Another object of my invention is to provide a lock that is very simple and cheap in construction land one that can be easily and quickly taken apart.
A further object of my invention is to provide a lock with a very simple tag or label locking means.
A urther object of my invention is to provide a lock with two sets of double reversible tumblers spaced apart.
A Jfurther obj ect of my invention is to provide a locking-lever that is connected to the hasp and the locking-bolt, so that when the hasp is closed the bolt is locked.
With these objects in view my invention consists of the novel construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter described, pointed out in the claims, and shown in the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure l is a face view of the lock with the tag attached. Fig. 2 is a face view of the lock with one of the sides removed, showing the working parts. Fig. 3 is a sectional view through the lock, taken on the line 3 3 of Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a face view of the lock, showing the upper set of tumblers removed and the intermediate plate partly broken away. Fig. 5 is a Section through the lock, taken on the line 5 5 of Fig. 2.
Referring to the drawings, A indicates the lower shell, and B the upper shell, forming the casing of my lock. A hasp C is pivoted in the upper end of the casing A and is provided with an inwardly-projecting member C', having a cut-out portion C2, in which the end Aof the spring C3 is adapted to rest and throw the hasp open when released by the tumblers.
A pair of double tumblers D are pivoted on the pintle D', provided with a spring D2, which engages a stud-pin D3 and holds the tumblers up against the hooked end of the hasp. A11 intermediate plate E is arranged over the tumblers D, and upon the upper side of said plate a duplicate pair of tumblers F are pivoted on the pintle D and are provided with springs F, which engage the wall ofthe lower shell A and hold the tumbler against the hasp. It will be seen that these tumblers can be readily reversed when desired, as they are formed exactly alike.
Pivoted on the pintle G is a lever G, provided with a long jaw G2 and a short jaw G3, adapted to engage the member C of the hasp C. The other end of the lever is beveled and is adapted to engage the spring locking-bolt H, secured on the under side of the upper shell B by a screw H. The bolt is provided with a member H2, projecting through an opening in the shell adapted to engage the opening` in the tag or label and securely lock the same in the guideway B', formed in the face of the shell B. When the hasp is closed, an opening is formed in the guideway, through which a'screw I is adapted to pass into the lower shell and lock the two shells together, the screw being securely held in place by the tag or label, so that there is no danger of the parts coming apart, and at the same time the parts can be easily separated by unlocking the lock and removing the tag or label and unscrewing the screw I.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. In a lock the combination with the casing formed in two parts, of a hasp pivoted to the lower part, tumblers arranged in said part, a lever pivoted in said part adapted to engage the hasp, and a locking-bolt carried by the other part for the purpose described.
2. In a lock, the combination with thecasing formed in two parts, of a hasp pivoted to the lower part, tumblers pivoted in said part, a plate secured over said tumblers, a duplicate pair of tumblers arranged over said tumblers on the plate, a spring locking-bolt carried by the other part, and a lever operated by the hasp adapted to engage said bolt for the purpose described.
3. In a lock, the combination with the casing formed in two parts, one of the parts being provided with a guideway on the outside, a locking-bolt arranged under the guideway on the inside, and means connected to the ICO hasp for forcing the bolt into the guideway for the purpose described.
4. In e lock, the combination With the casing, tumblers pvoted in said casing, e hasp pivoted in said casing and provided with an inwerdlyprojecting member, e guideway iorrned On the face of the casing, a springbolt secured in the casing under the guide- Wey, and e lever operated by the hasp adapted to engage the bolt for the purpose described.
5. In a lock7 the combination with an upper and lower shell, of e double set of tu1nblers secured in the lower shell, a plate seerwies cured between said tumblers, a spring-actuated hasp secured in said shell, a lever provided with jews at one end and adapted to engage the liesp and beveled at the other end, e guideway formed in the face of the other shell7 a spring-bolt secured under the guide- Way on the inside and projecting up in said guidewey and adapted to be Operated by the beveled end of the lever for the purpose described.
