LESTER w. BOND, OF New YORK, N. Y., ASSIGNOR 'ro BERBECKER a ROWLAND MANU- NECTICUT.
FACTURING Y COMPANY, OF WATERVILLE, CONNECTICUT, A CORPORATION OF CON- To-all whom it may concern:
.Be it known that L-Lnsrnn W. BOND, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of .New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county of New York and State. of New York, have made and invented certain new and useful Improvements in Curtain-Poles,
- of which the following is a specificatiom thereon, or remove it'therefrom, and which will be cheap to manufacture and. present a neat appearance.
With these and other objects in view, my
' invention consists in certain novel features of construction and combinations of parts, as will be-hereinafter fully described and pointed out in the claims;
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a view in elevation of my improved device, the rod being shown in position. Fig.
. 2 is a sectional view taken on the line 22 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional view of the supporting bracket. Fig. 4 is a .per-
-s ective view of the outer end of one sec-' t1on of the rod or pole. Fig. 5 is a view similar to Fig. 2,showing a modified form of rod or pole, and Fig. 6 is a perspective view of one end of the pole shown in Fig. 5. Referring to the drawings, the curtain rod or pole is shown as being composed of the telescopic sections A, B, which are preferably formed of sheet metal or other suitable material and are provided at or adjacent their outer ends with means for receiving co-acting means formed on the supporting brackets for the purpose of accurately centering the pole or rod in place.
, In Figs. 2 and 41 have shown a pole or' rod having receptacles or perforations C formed in each section at or adjacent the outer end thereof, while in Figs. 5 and 6, the outer ends of the sections of the rod or pole are provided with receptacles or indentations D. While I have shown two receptacles formed at the outer end of the sec- Specification of Letters Patent.

tions of the pole, it will of course be understood w thout further illustration, that I could construct the sections with but one receptacle, or with more thantwo receptacles at each end ifI so desire, without departing from the, spirit of my invention.
The supporting bracket, which is preferably made of metal, consists of a back plate E, to which is secured a preferably areshaped supporting member F, adapted to embrace the outer end of the pole or rod, and. provided with one or more inwardly extending projections or 'raised portions G, adapted to extend within and engage with the receptacles C or D, as shown in Figs. 2 and 5, respectively, and being further provided with upwardly and inwardly extending end portions H, the extreme tips of which are preferably bent or turned slightly I outward as indicated at I. The supporting member F is secured to the back plate E throughout its lower central portion only, as clearly indicated at K in Fig. 3, the free ends H being thus adapted to be sprung slightly outward when the rod or plateis placed in position or withdrawn therefrom. While I have shown the member F as being riveted to the plate E, it will of course be understood that it may be secured thereto in any other suitable manner.
In practice the supporting brackets are attached to the window frame, door jamb or other support L, by means of suitable fastening devices M which pass through openings or holes N formed in the back plate E; the I'0d' 01 pole is then adjusted to the proper length and forced downwardly, the outer ends passing between the free ends H of -member F, which end portions will spring apart sufiiciently to permit the end to pass between them and will assume their normal the same within the brackets and retaining it firmly in position. To remove the rod it is simply'necessary to give it a slight upward push, the free ends H springing apart sufliciently to permit the ends of the rod to pass between them.
It will be seen that I have provided a curtain pole or rod which may be quickly positioned within or removed from the supports .ingbrackets, which will be accyrately cen- H tered therein, and which will be held firmly;
Having what I claim as new and desire Letters Patent,1is:- u
1. The combination with a curtaln pole fully described my invention, to secure by each of the ends of which is provided with a receptacle, of a supporting bracket therefor,
said bracket being formed with s ring arms each of the ends of which is formed with a receptacle,of a supportingbracket therefor, said bracket consisting of a late having an are -shaped plate secured thereto forming spring arms, the latter being provided wit a PI'OJGCtiOIl adapted to be contained within the receptacle formed in the latter is retained in position, substantially as described.
Signed at New York, borough of Man hattan, in the county of New Yorkfand State'of New York, this 17th day of March A. D. 1908. LESTER W. BOND.
