To all whom it may'concen' l Be it known that 1, HENRY SCHMITT, a itizen of the United States, and residing at 181 ATwenty-eighth Place, in the city of Chicago,
county of Cook, and State 'of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Latch-Locks, of which the following'is a specification.
` one cylindrical hole in whic My invention relates to thatvclass of'locks commonly known as door locks and in which the knob. to be operated on each side of thel door is an essential part.
The bject of my invention is to provide a latch lockwhich can belet into the body of the door and secured therein b the boring of the l'ock is forced into position, by-the boring of a cylindrical hole for the knob s indle and one or more small holesl to hold t e knob plates, to thereby reduce .the labor and skill required to fit the ordinary looks in the doors to reduce I prevent the weakening'of the door in the tions and illustrated `in .the .amount ofwood required Ayto be removed from the door to 1a minimum and thereby part where thelock is inserted and' where its strength should be the, reatest; to combine J'the utility of a latch an` alock to be used as one or the other at-pleasure, and to simplify and cheapen the manufacture of vdojor fasten` in s `of the class described.

`The case B wbich'forms the body of my device is cylindrical, a longitudinal 'cyllnder j .as shown 1n the same figures, .and when' pressed togetherx the cover is forced forward and the projections B-- are forced intd the' `indents and thereby -the cover is held 1n posltion on the main body. The parts B-.l and B'-2 are secured together by a screw B-.8 which extends through the cover and 1s adapted vin'diameter and length to .the size of screwed into the main body. Across the cention B-9 extends with apertures therein adapted to allow the tail of the latch bolt,
and the draw bar hereinafter described to pass through. A square aperture B-10 in the face plate of the main body is adapted to support .the head of a latch bolt. Transversely through the main body and cover are apertures B-11 adapted to sup ort a hub. Supported in the case is a latch bo t D having a beveled head D-l adapted to slidein the a erture B-lO and a tail D-2 adapted to s ide through one of the apertures in the partitions B-9. Extending transversely through the end of the tail is a stop pin D-3 adapted to engage the partition B-Q and to thereby limit the outward movement of the latc bolt in the case. Supported on the tail of the bolt and compressed between the head of the bolt and the partition in the case, is a coiled spring D-4. Aflixed in the tail near the head of the bolt is a projecting pin D-5. Within the case and journaled in the a ertures B-11 is a hub D- shown in .detail in Figs. 11 and 12. Thishub is constructed with double flanges D-7. Secured transversely in two of thesel flanges is a' crank pin D-B. Hooked onto this pin isa flat draw bar D-9. In the other end of this bar isin aperture by which it is connected to the projecting pin D-5 near the head of the bolt. This bar passes through an aperture in the partition in the case and is adapted b the movement ofthe hub to draw the head ofthe bolt within the face of the case. Through the center of the hub is a square aperture D-lO adapted for the passa e of a spindle. The iianges D-7 have shoul ers D-ll and D-12 which are adapted to engage the screw B S and to therebylimi't the rotative movement of the hub, as shown in Figs. 5, 6.
Extending through the aperture A-Z in the door and through the hub D- is a spindle E having threaded holes E-l by which a knob F is secured by screws E-3 in the ordinary way. The inside plate F-l has a deep bearing surface F-2 and enlarged flange F 3 and screw holes F-4 as shown in Figs. 1 andv 3. The outer part of the spindle is provided with a stop ring E-6 secured therein by a pin E-7 as shown in Fig. 1 this ring is adapted to abut against the hub when the inside knob is attached to the spindle and thereby preventing any lateral movement of the spindle in the hub. The outside door knob plate `G is secured to the door by screws Gr1 which extend through the inside plate and enter the threaded holes (ir-2 in the plate G. This plate has a large central hole G-3 adapted to admit the end of the knob and has a recess G-4 adapted to permit the movement of a bearing ring G-5 `between the plate and the door, and an out.-
side recess Ght adapted for an outside bearing for the knob. Supported in this plate is an outside knob II, the barrel lI-l of this knob has a threaded end H-2 adapted te extend through the center hole in the plaie which is engaged by the shoulder H43. (ln thethreaded end of the knob a ring Crm-5 is secured, this ring is adapted to iit in the recess G-4 and together with the outside (.l-ii form a bearing in which the knob is secured and free to be revolved. When adjusted on the knob this ring is secured by a dowel pin H-4 as shown in Figs. 1 and 2. Extending through the longitudinal center of the barrel H-l of the knob is an aperture II-5, in cross section this is square as shown in Fig. 1. Slidably supported in this aperture is a sq u are sleeve H- adapted to slide on and oll`1he end E-S of the spindle E and to forni a telescopic connection between the knob and the spindle as shown in Figs. 1 and 2. Near the end of this sleeve and extending transversely therethrough is a crank pin II7. Pivotally attached to this pin is a connecting rod II-S. This rod is attached at the other end to a crank pin ailixed in the end of a rotatabh` plug in a lock J whereby said sleeve is ineved into and out of connection with the spindle.
'This lock J is secured in the head of the knob whichis adapted to hold it in a cylinder ll-l and is covered by a cap H-l() allixed in a check H-11 in the outside edge li-12 el' the knob. The body of the lock J is secured through the fianges J--1 to the base II-13 of the interior of the knob by screws J-2 as shown in Figs. 1, 2, 14 and 15. One end J-3 of this lock is square and forms a right angle to the base of the knob and is parallel with one side of the square aperture `Il l') in the barrel H-l ofthe knob as shown i'n Figs. 1, 2 and 14. The other end J-4 is adapted to it the curve of the knob. Extending through the body of the lock J is a cylinder J-, the longitudinal center of this cylinder forms a right angle with the center line ollthe sleeve. In thiscylinder is a rotatable plug J--G having a longitudinal key slot J--7 as shown in Figs. 13, 17 and 18. The end J-S of this plug extends through the side of' the knob as shown in Figs. 13, 17 and 1S and forms the entrance for the key. The other end J-Q projects slightly beyond the end of the lock. In this end of the plug, within the cylinder is an annular channel J-10. Extending through the body of the lock and projecting into this channel is a pin J-I] adapted to hold the plug in position in the cylinder as shown in section in Figs. 17 and 18. Secured in and projecting from the end of 'the plug is a crank pin J-12. On this pin one end of the connecting rod II-S is secured. In the central part of this plug is a transverse slot J-13 as shown in Fig. 16. Slidably adjusted in this slot are a series el' tumblers J 14 shown in Figs. 1G, 17 and 15, and in detail in Fig. 19. The heads J-15 ol' IOO IOS
these tumblersV are adapted to fit. the Width of the slot While the body part J-16 is reduced in thickness to permit the passage of the key as shown in Figs. 16, 17, 18 and 19. Dowel pins J-17 supported transversely in the plug project into the slot as showny in Fig. 16 and are thereby adapted to engage the ends of tumblers holding them in a slidable position, and afford a bearing for the back of the key as showndn Figs. 17 and-18. In the transverse slots J-18 in the top of the lock J and restin on the head of each tumbler is the' free en of a spring J-19, the other end of each of said springs is secured by a plate J-ZO on the flange of the lock byl a screw J`21 as shown in Figs. 1, 2, 14, 15 and 16. Thesesprings press the bottom ends of the tumblersinto a lon itudinal slot J'-22 in the bottom of lthe cy inder and thereby lock the plug to the body of the lock; The insertion of fa proper key throu h the side of knob into the plug engages the eads of the tumblers, lifts the tumblers out of the slot in the cylinder and permits the plug to be' rotated bythe key, "and the connectmg rod and sleevey be thereby moved into or out ofy f engagement with the spindle.
