ANTIRATTLING DEVICE FOR AUTOMOBILE CURTAINS. APPLICATION FILED JULY I7. 1916.

ANTIRATTLING DEVICE FOR AUTOMOBILE-CURTAINS.

Application filed July 17, 1916.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM C. Kooi-r, a citizen of the United States, residing at St. Paul, in the county of Ramsey and State of Minnesota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Antirattling Devices for Automobile-Curtains, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to improvements in anti-rattling devices for the curtains of automobiles and other vehicles, and has for its object to provide improved means for preventing the curtains from rattling under the vibrations and jars of the car or other vehicle when the same is in motion.

The devices commonly used to fasten the curtains consist of a button upon the car frame or other supporting member, and an eyelet upon the curtain which is adapted to receive and slip over the head of the button. To make the fastening easy the shank of the button is necessarily made long enough to allow the eyelet room'for some freedom of play back and forth, so that the quick vibrations and shaking of the car will cause the parts to rattle. It is the object of the present invention to provide the fasteners with improved cushioning devices for preventing this.

To that end the invention consists in the construction, combination, and arrangement of parts hereinafter described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings showing an embodiment of the invention,

Figure 1 is a side elevation of part of a motor car showing curtain fasteners provided with the improved cushioning device;

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a curtain fastening button fitted with the improved cushioning device;

Fig. 3 is a side or edge elevation of a fragment of the curtain shown secured to the car body by means of the cushioned fastening device;

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of a cushioning device embodying the invention;

Fig. 5' is a perspective view of a modified form of cushioning device also embodying the invention; and

Fig. 6 is a view partly in elevation and partly in vertical section of one of the fastening buttons.

In the drawings, A represents the frame of a motor car, and B one of the side curtains therefor. In Fig. 1 the frame of the car is shown provided with fastening but- Specification of Letters Patent.

tons C, and the curtain with cooperating eyelets D, such being the devices commonly used for fastening the curtains of the car to the frame thereof. In Fig. 2 one of these buttons is shown in perspective upon a larger scale. As here shown it comprises a base flange 2 adapted to be. secured upon the car body by means of screws or other suitable fastening means, and an outwardly projected shank 3, which carries upon its free end a head 4. This head is here shown rotatably supported in the shank by means of a pivot pin 5 which is carried by the head and extends into a hole in the shank. The pin has a flange 6 at the bottom, and is held resiliently against the end of the shank by means of a coil spring 7 interposed between this flange and the top of the shank. The head and shank are shown of greater width than thickness, so that after being turned into alinement with the shank in position to receive the eyelet of the curtain, as shown in Fig. 2, the head can be turned crosswise of the shank, so as to hold the eyelet as shown in Figs. 3 and 6.

In order to enable the eyelets to be easily slipped over the buttons the shank of the button is made long enough to allow the eyelet to have some play back and forth upon the shank, and it is this play of the eyelet that causes the rattling of the parts when the car is in motion. The present improvement, which is designed to stop the rattling, consists of a washer 7 made of yielding and preferably resilient material, such as leather or other fibrous material, and interiorly slitted to enable it to be thrust over the head and shank ofthe button, as shown in Figs. 2 and 3. The slits are preferably so made that little or no material is removed, so that when the washer is slipped over the button, the lips or parts 8 of the washer adjacent to the slit or slits will be forced apart and bent up so as to stand against and hug the shank of the button. I have found it best to make the washer with communicating slits crossing or meeting at an angle, preferably two slits crossing each other at right angles, as shown in Fig. 4, so as to facilitate the bending up of the lips 8 on each side of the slits when the washer is thrust over the button, as well as more completely to cover and protect the shank of the button. In Fig. 5 is shown a form of slitting the washer wherein the slits are made in a zig-zag manner like the letter Zn After the washer has been placed upon the shank of the button as shown in Fig. 2, and

the eyelet has been inserted over the button, the washer with its outwardly bent lips 8 standing alongside the shank of the button will form a resilient cushion to receive and take up the thrusts against the base or shank of the button.

I claim:

1, The combination with a fastening button for vehicle curtains, said button having a shank and a head, of a washer of resilient material slitted without the removal of material and fitting over the head of the button with the portions between the slits forced apart and bent up alongside the shank of the button, whereby to form a rcsilient cushion for a curtain eyelet inserted over the head of the button outside the washer.

2. The combination with a fastening button for vehicle curtains, said button having a shank and a head, of a washer of leather slitted without the removal of material with slitted without the removal of material with l intersecting slits, said washer fitting over the head of the button with the portions between the slits forced apart and bent up alongside the shank of the button to form a resilient cushion for a curtain inserted over the button outside of the washer.

In testimony whereof I afiiX my signature in presence of two witnesses.

WILLIAM C. KOCH.
