T l Q hereby declare the following to be a full,-

UNITED 'STATES PATENT OFFICE;

CLARK MCKEE, or AFToN, IOWA.

DOOR-FASTENER.

To all whom it may concern:

Be itknown that I, CLARK MCKEE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Afton, in the county of Union and State of Iowa, have inventedl certain new andV useful Improvements in Door-Fasteners; and I do clear, and exact description of the invention, such'as will enable others skilled in the art towhich it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to a new and improved door fastener, and is moreparticularly designed for luse upon doors of barns, garages and like doors, but may be so constructed as to adapt the fastener for lighter doors or swinging windows.

One of theobjects of this invention is to provide a fastener for efficiently maintaining the door in closed position and which fastener may be readily actuated to provide for the ready opening of the door.

Another object of this invention is to provide a fastener for securing a door or the like at its upper, lower, and intermediate portions whereby to prevent sagging and warpino' of the door.

Another object of this invention is to provide a fastener having a plurality of securing members provided with means for actuating the securing members Vsimultaneously. i

Another object of'this invention is to provide a fastener consisting 'of few parts, simple in construction, strong and durable, efiicient in operation, and which can be manufactured'and sold upon-'the market at a nominal cost.

' These andV other objects and advantages will more fully appear as the nature of the invention is more clearly understood from y the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings wherein there is disclosed Vone embodiment of the invention, b'utwhich is susceptible to numerous alterations and variations in the fornn'construction, and arrangement of the parts thereof to meet the exigencies of the case without departing from the spirit of the invention or exceeding the scope of the appended claims.

In the drawings:

Fi re 1 is a side view of the meeting edges of a door jamb and a door, showing the invention in applied operative position Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Mal. 5, 1918.

Application filed June 1, 1917. Serial No. 172,262.

thereon with the parts in the position which they assume when maintaining the door in closed locked position.

Fig. 2 is a similar view to Fig. 1, but showing the position which the parts assume `when unlocking and preparatory to opening the door. t

Referring to the drawings, wherein similar characters denote corresponding parts throughout the several views, 1 denotes the door jamb and 2 the adjacent edge portion of the door` and upon this portion of the door 2 and positioned adjacent its edge are a plurality of keepers or cleats, preferably, one at the upper portion of the door, a second at a point midway between the upper and lower edges of the door, and the third at the bottom portion of the door. These keepers or cleats are formed ofany suitable material and are provided with the base members 3 which are secured upon the respective portions of the door 2 by the screws 4 or other suitable securing means. The keepers or cleats are formed to provide their base members 3 with the Shanks 5 disposed in right angular relation to the base members 3 and the lips or lugs 6 which are disposed at right angles from the outer edges of the shank 5 and extend in the direction from the shanks 5 opposite .to the direction which the base members 3 extend, and by so constructing the keepers or cleats their lips or lugs 6 will lie in the plane outwardly of the plane of the base members 3 so that the lips, extensions or lugs 6 of the keepers or cleats will lie in spaced relation to the surface of the door 2.

Pivotallyv mounted upon the jamb 1 through the medium of the screws 7, or other suitable pivotal means, are the latch members 8 which register with the respective lips or lugs 6 of the keepers or cleats and designed to be readily passed beneath the lips or lugs of the keepers or cleats or in other words between the inner surface ofthe lips or lugs 6 and the adjacent surface of the door 2. l Y

Upon the latch members 8 at the opposite sides of their pivotal points-are the longitudinally alined actuating arms 9 having pivotally connected thereto as at 10 the universal connecting rod 11 so as to provide for the simultaneous movement of the arms9 for swinging the latch members 8 upon their pivots 7 and for conveniently actuating the n am, cinema' aah-mtas is vided A with the operating handle 12, however," While itisl preferable to provide the centrall v arm 9 withthevvoperatinghandle 12.,A either l the upper arm 91or the lower arm 9 maybe operating handle 12' if so' provided with the desired.
