Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented m sh 19, 1907.
Application filed November 6, 1906- Serial No. 342.141. I
To will whom it may concern I i Be it known that I, Jam: Fm, a subject of the Austrian Empire, residing at San Francisco, in the county of San--Francisoo'and State of California, have invented new and' useful Im rovementsinCombined Latch 01' Bolt and andle, of which the following is a specification. v
This-invention "relates to a combined bolt or latch and handle for fastening doors, windows, sliding drawers, file-cases, and the like, the object of the invention being to provide a device which shall contain few parts, which ner side of-the front detached Fig. 7 is a can be readilyoperated to firmly'secure the part to which it is attached, and which will also furnish a convenient handle for opening the door or window or withdrawing the sliddrawer, filecase,,or the like.
theaccompanying drawing, Fi e 1 is a perspective view of my' device attac ed to a doorin the locking position; Fig. 2 isa similar .view showing the device applied toa drawer. Fig. 3 is a pers ective view of the device,-showing the back etached. Fig. 4-is a'similarview showing the bolt. Fi 5 is a gerspective view of the inner side of t e back etachedl Fig. 6 is a similarjview of the inlongitudinal section through the device.
Referring to the drawing, Lindicates the front casing-section, and 2 the rear casingsection. Saidsections are secured together .and also secured to a door, drawer-front or holes 4. The
the like by screws 3 throng1 front section is formed wit side walls 56,
the longer sides 5 being cut away or recessed to receive ears 7, extending forward at right angles from the back, the ends of said ears' having recesses'S to-form half-,bearin s for the cross-bar 9 of a loop-shaped hand e 10.
a 'The other half of said bearings is formed by a groove 11, formed transverselyin the. inner surface of the front section of the. casing. Sa d cross-bar has extending therefrom a short lug 12 and a long'lug' or arm 13 extend mg at an angle with the short lug, said lugs. being adapted to engage recesses'in the inner side of thebolt 14, which slides'through a guide-hole -15 in the wall 6 of the front section. A-flat spring 17 is secured at its rear ends 18 to the front section, and the front end of said s ring bears down upon the rear end of the b0 t and presses it agalnst the lugs 12 13 on the cross-bar.
When the device is in position secured to a door or draweragainst opening.
the door, it is onlynecessary to take hol of door 19, as shownin Fig. 1 or' to a drawer 20,
as shown in F' 2, or to-other parts which it maybe desire to secure and the handleis turned down against the casing, the long arm 13, extending from the cross-bar,
resses said bolt against the frame of the door or into the socket in the strildng-plate or against. the artitionstrip above the drawer or the l' e and firmly'secures said To 0 en the end' ofthe handle and pull it outward when the same force which 1s a plied to pull the door open withdraws the oltfrom the door-frame. The same movementtakes place in pulling out adrawer, filing-case, -or
. the like.- i
The use of the l s 12 13,is preferable to that of one only, athough the latter construction is not inoperative. The two lugs screws, all of which parts are very easily made. The construction of the front and rear sections by which the ears extend from the rear section into recesses formed in side walls of the front section to formbearings .for' the cross-bar of the handle greatly re dpces the cost; i
I claim '1. A'device of comprising the front and rear casing-sections, one of said sections having walls with sock-- ets and the other having ears projecting into said sockets, said ears having recesses in their ends, and the-other section having a transverse groove, said groove and recess the character described,
forming a bearing, a handle having a cross-' bar in said bearing, a 'bolt, the cross-bar have ing means engaging-said bolt to .project the same, and a spring pressing said bolt against said means, substantially as described. I p
2. A device of the character described, comprisin the fronta'nd r'ear casing-sections, one of sai sections having walls with sockets and the other having ears projecting into said'sockets, .said ears having recesses in their ends, and the other section having a transverse groove, said groove and recess forming a bearing, a handle having a crossbar in said bearing, a bolt, the cross-bar having a short arm'substantially in the plane of the handle and a long arm at right angles thereto, both ofsaid arms engaging said bolt to roject the same, and a spring'pressing sai bolt against said means, substantially as described. y e
3. A device of the character described, comprising a bolt havinga recess in one side, a 100 -shaped handle having a cross-bar provide With, a transverse extension entering said recess in the bolt to project and retract the same, a bearing for said cross-bar, and a spring pressing against the other side of the bolt to maintain said recess in engagement recesses in engagement with said stantlally as described.
with said extension, substantially as described.
. j 4. A device of the character described, comprising a bolt having recesses in 'one side, a 100 -shaped handle having a cross-bar provide with lugs adapted to enter said recesses to project and retract the bolt, a bearing for the crossbar,and a spring pressing against the other side of the bolt to maintain said lugs, sub- In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
