WEATHERGUARD AND SASH-LOCK.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Jan. 31, 1911.

Application filed October 30, 1909. Serial No. 525,439.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, EDWARD S. KELLY, a citizen of the United States, residing at St. Louis, State of Missouri, have invented new and useful Improvements in Weather- Guards and Sash-Locks, of which the following is a specification.

The invention relates to a combined weather guard and sash lock designed to be used in connection with a swinging sash and operative to effectively close the juncture of the sash and frame against the elements and at the same time lock the sash against opening.

The main object of the present invention is the provision of a weather guard movably mounted on the window frame and arranged to engage a bearing strip carried by the sash, the guard being adapted for manual operation to closed position and to be actuated through an intermediate part serving to lock the sash against movement.

The invention in its preferred details of construction will be described in the following specification, reference being had parti ularly to the accompanying drawings, in W ich:-

Figure 1 is a vertical sectional view, partly in elevation, illustrating the improvement, the weather guard being shown open. Fig. 2 is a similar view Wli'll the guard shown closed. Fig. 3 is an elevation of the operating member. Fig. 4 is a" section, partly in elevation, of the same. Fig. 5 is a section on line 53-43 of Fig. 2. Fig. 6 is a sectional view, partly in elevation, showing the latch for use with the guard when the same is combined with a sash hinged at one side. Fig. 7 is a broken perspective view showing the improvement applied to asash hinged at the upper side.

Referring particularly to'the accon'ipanying drawings wherein is shown the preferred details of construction, the improved guard comprises a metallic strip 1 preferably coextensive in length with the width of the sash. A guard is movably mounted on a bed strip 2 seated in a recess 3 formed with the window frame immediately underlying the lower edge of the sash when closed, through the medium of hinges 4 and 5, 'the latter of which is of the spring type tensioned to normally hold the guard in inoperative position, that is with the relatively forward portion of the guard strip resting upon the upper edge of the bed strip.

()11 the forward face the lower rail of the sash is cut out to provide a longitudinal channel 6 in which is seated a scaling memher 7 terminating at its lower edge above the upper surface of the guard when in inoperative position, so that the member may freely pass over the guard as the window moves to closed position. In rear of the member 7, the lower forward portion of the rail of the sash is cut out to provide a channel 8 in which the guard has free movement from inoperative to operative position. The upper wall of the channel is rounded on a plane coincident with the sweep of the upper edge of the guard strip, and the member 7 forms, in part, a forward wall for the upper portion of the channel, as at 9, said wall serving as an abutment against which the upper surface of the guard bears when in operative position. guard is preferably curved to a slight: extent, as at 10, and the forward face of the bed strip 2 is formed with a recess 11 to receive said curved edge when the guard is in operative position, all as will be clearly seen in Fig. 2 of the drawings.

Imn'iediately in rear of the bed strip 2 the frame or sill is formed with an opening '13 to receive a socket 14, the upper end of which is open and flush with the upper surface of the frame. A pin 15 is'slidably mounted in the frame being provided with a head Hi and normally held at its limit of upward movement by a spring 17. The socket, in its relatively forward portion. is provided with spaced cars 18 arranged as opposing walls .of the opening in the socket, between which cars is pivoted a lever 19. The rear end of the lever is connected to the pin 1.7,whilc the forward end is connected through the medium of a link 20 to the hinge l of the guard plate. From this construction it will be obvious that when the pin 15 is at its limit of upward movement, under the influence of the siring 17, the for\vard cud of the lever 19 \Vlll be lowered and therefore the guard strip drawn to inoperative position, while the reverse arrangement of the pin 15 will project the guard strip to operative )osition. It. is understood that the bed strlp 2. as well as the. contiguous portion of the sill. is formed with openings to receive the lever The lower edge of theand link, and that the spring 17 combined with the spring of the hinge 5 is sufficient to normally hold the guard plate in inoperative position.

A housing 21 is secured in an appropriately formed channel in the sash, said housing being arranged above the socket 14. Slidably mounted in the housing is apressure rod 22, the lower end of which is designed to operate throughthe opening 23 in the bottom wall, of the housing and to aline with the head of the pin 15 when the sash is closed. The upper end of the rod 22 is formed toprovide a rectangular head 24 having laterally extending flanges 25 at the top and bottom edges thereof, the proximate surface of said flanges being curved. A shaft 26 is revolubly supported in the flange and rear walls of the housing, being provided within the housing with a cam member 27 having its edges normally in contact with the proximate edges of' the flanges 25. The cam is so mounted on the shaft that in the rotation of the latter the rod 22 may be reciprocated to depress and to permit elevation of the pin 15. One end of the shaft 26 projects beyond the forward wall of the housing and is provided with an operating handle 28.

In operation, with the parts in normal position as previously noted, the sash is swung into closed position and the handle 28. operated to cause the rod 22 to depress the pin 15 and itself enter the socket 14. This movement of the pin serves to elevate the guard strip into binding contact with the sealing member 7, at the same time the rod 22 serves .to lock the sash against opening. The guard operates to effectively prevent entrance of any material between the sash and frame when the former is in closed position forming an effective seal of the juncture. .At the same time the movement of the guard to operative position through actuation of the locking pin 22 serves to lock the sash against opening.

The invention is adapted for use with a sash being hingedly connected with the frame at the top or side, the use in both forms being identical, except that in the sash hinged at the side I prefer means for normally holding the plate in inoperative position while the sash is open in order to prevent any possibility of interference in the closing of the sash. This means is particularly illustrated in Figs. 5 and 6 in which 29 represents a latch pivotally mounted at 30 in a casing 31 seated in an opening in the window frame, a spring 82 being arranged to normally hold the latch in projected position. The latch is mounted at the sash con nected face of the frame and while the sash is open the lower edge of the latch overlies the guard strip 1 to prevent upward movement thereof. As the sash moves to closed position it will engage and force the latch to an inoperative position so as to free the guard for operation, the latch being wholly displaced only when the sash is fully closed.

Having thus described the invention, what I claim as new is 1. The combination with a swinging sash of a guard plate movably connected to the frame and adapted to close the space between the sash and frame, means mounted in the frame andv connected with the guard, and a locking pin carried by the sash and adapted in operation to actuate said means, said pin serving to lock the sash against opening.

2. The combination with a swinging sash of a guard plate to close the opening between the sash and the frame, a spring pressed pin mounted in the frame in rear of the guard plate, a lever operated by said pin, a link connecting said lever and plate whereby in the depression of the pin the plate is moved to operative position, and a pin carried by the sash and designed to aline with the spring pressed pin when the sash is closed whereby to permit manual operation of the guard plate.

3. The combination with a swinging sash of a guard plate to close the opening-between the sash and the frame, a spring pressed pin mounted in the frame in rear of theguard plate, a lever operated by said pin, the link connecting said lever and plate whereby in the depression of the pin the plate is moved to operative position, and a locking pin carried by the sash and designed to aline with the spring pressed pin when the sash is closed whereby to permit manual operation of the guard plate, said locking pin when operated to actuate the spring pressed pin being designed to seat in the recess of the frame to lock the sash against opening.

4:. The combination with an element mounted for swinging in a frame, said element being formed with a channel, said frame being formedwith a recess, a strip secured in the recess to project beyond the proximate surface of the frame, and a sealing member secured to the element to form .an abutment for the forward edge of the channel, of a guard plate hinged to the strip and means whereby said plate may be operated to cause it to engage the strip and sealing member, the forward face of the strip adjacentthe surface of the frame be ing formed with a recess and the lower edge of the guard plate being curved to seat in said recess when the plate is in contact with the sealing member.

5. The combination with an element mounted for swinging movement in the v frame, of a guard strip arranged to close the opening between the sash and frame, actuating means for the strip mounted in the In testimony whereof I afiix my signature frame, and means carried by the element to in presence 0 two witnesses. engage and operate said actuating means, that portion of the operatingmeans ar- EDWARD S.
