/ REFLECTOR MOUNTING.

' APPLICATION FILED HAR- 9. I920- 1 ,358, 1 59. 4 Patented Nov. 9, 1920.

1 ATTORNEY UNITED STATES.

JOHN KERN, 015 LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA.

I REFLECTOR-MOUNTING.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that 1, JOHN KERN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Los Angeles, in the county of Los Angelesand State of California, have invented new and useful Improvements in Reflector-Mountings, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a reflector and a mounting therefor and particularl pertains to a mirror attachment for auto ve ioles and the like. a

It is the object of this invention to provide a reflector and a mounting therefor whereby the reflector may readily be attached to the frame of a wind-shield on auto vehicles and the like and adjusted to any desired position and which mounting embodies a bracket and a simple construction whereby thereflector may be disposed at various inclinations relative to the bracket and arranged at any suitable angle thereon so that the reflector may be readily placed in such position relative to the driver of the vehicle as to enable him to conveniently observe in the reflector that region to his rear as may be most desired.- 4

Another object is to provide an adjustment in a device of the above character by means of which horizontal, vertical and pivotal adjustment of the reflector and fastening thereof may be effected by a single clamping element.

A further object is to provide a reflector and a mounting therefor which is simple and economical in construction and adapted to be easily and quickly applied and adjusted.

Uther objects will appear hereinafter.

The invention is illustrated in the accomao panying drawings, in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view showing the invention as applied to a wind shield frame.

Fig. 2 is a detail in vertical section showing the manner of disposing the reflector at various vertical angles.

Fig. 3 is a view in horizontal section as seen on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2 showing the manner of adjusting the reflector laterally.

More specifically 4: indicates a bracket one end of which is adapted to be attached to the frame 5 of a wind shield or the like and for which purpose is fitted with a jaw 6 preferably extending at right angles to the bracket and arranged to be positioned against the frame; a clamping jaw 7 being Specification 01' Letters Patent.

Patented Nov. 9, 1920.

Application filed March 9, 1920. Serial No. 384,410.

as rectangular in form and as fitted with a back wall 14 on which a reflecting surface or mirror is mounted. Projecting from the back wall and extending transversely thereof is an arcuate bar 16 having a longitudinal slot 17 and which bar is adapted to be positioned against the outer arcuate face of the plate 10 and is designed to be adjustably astened thereto. The connection between the bar and plate ishere shown as comprising a pin or bolt 18 which passes through the slots in the plate and bracket and has a head 19 on one end thereof engaging the inner face of the bar. The outer end portion of the bolt is threaded to receive a wing-nut 20 or the like which on being tightened on the bolt will act to clamp the bar and plate together. A split washer 21 is interposed between the wing-nut and the inner arcuate face of the plate and serves to prevent loosening of the nut.

In the application and operation of the invention the bracket is aflixed to the frame member 5, being tightly secured thereto by the clamping 'j aws as before described. The reflector is then adjusted to any desired position on the bracket within its range of movement; the wing-nut being loosened for this purpose. The bar may then be shifted vertileally on the arcuate plate with the bolt sliding in the slot in the latter. The plate being curved the reflector may be disposed in either a vertical position as shown in full lines inFig. 2 or in an inclined position as indicated in dotted lines, the position of the reflector being fixed according to the point of contact of the bar on the plate. I

The slot in the bar permits the latter being shifted lengthwise on the bolt and. by reason of the arcuate form of the bar the reflector may be disposed at various positions transversely of the vertical plate such for. example as parallel therewith as indicated in full lines in Fig. 3 or at an angle relative thereto'as indicated in dotted lines. The sin 1e connection between the bar and plate e ected by the bolt permits the reflector'being turned as on a ivot to dispose it in either a vertical position as shown in the drawings or in a horizontal or diagonal position should it be desirable to do so. 0n ti htening the wing-nut the outwardly curved face of the bar will be brought into contact with the outwardly curved face of the plate with the portions of the bar on opposite sides of the slot bearing at spaced points onthe curved plate thus effectmg a wedge-like en agement between the oppositely curved aces so as to insure against disarrangement of the reflector.

From the foregoing it will be seen that I have provided a simple reflector mountin which will ermit of a wide range of a j ustment and which by reason of employin a single fastening element may be easily an quickly set to the desired position.

While I cific embodiment of my invention I do not limit myself to the exact details of construction disclosed but may employ such modifications and changes in the several parts and their equivalents as occasion may require and as may come within the scope-of the invention as set forth in the accompanying claims.

I claim:

1. In a reflector mounting, a bracket, a vertically extending1 arcuate plate on said bracket formed wit a vertical slot, a reflector, a horizontally extending arcuate bar on said reflector having a horizontal slot, said bar arran ed to abut against the vertical arcuate p ate; a pivot pin extending through the slots in the plate and bar hav- 'ing a head engaging the bar and a winghave shown and described a spenut screwed on the other end of said pin for clamping the plate and bar together.

2. In a reflector mounting, the combination of a reflector, an arcuate bar on said reflector having a longitudinal slot, a

bracket, an arcuate plate on said bracket slots for connecting the bar and plate embodying means for clamping said bar and plate together.

4. A reflector mounting comprisingtwo arcuate members arra d with their outwardly curved faces a utting, means for clamping said members together in various relative positions, a support for one of'said members and a reflector alfixed to the other of said members.

5. A reflector mounting comprising two arcuate members arranged with their out-. wardly curved faces abutting, each of said members being formed with elongated slots, means passing through said slots for clamping said members together in various positions relative to each other, and on which said members may be turned, a support for one of said members, and a reflector afiixed to the other of said members.

JOHN KERN.
