A indicates the door, B the latching bolt thereof, D thel spring of the bolt engaging against an inner lend. oit the casing C in which the bolt B reciprocates. E is a yoke pinned to the inner end of the bolt B. The
yoke E permits the knob spindles to pass through it and an operatingluga engages against lugs upon said yoke to retract the yoke against the action of the spring D shoulder b4 and is extended in the part b5 of reduced diameter. lVithin the part b5 is secured the cylindrical tube bs by means of a pin or short screw o? extending through the walls of the two parts. The tubular part las is slotted longitudinally to forni the slot b. The knob Z) has a cylindrical opening' coaxial therewith through its outer Wall (Fig. 1l and there is a. pin-lock casing c in the knob Y) and coaxial therewith. its end closing said 'opening in the outer wall of the knob, with an annular flange c2 resting upon the inside wall of said knob around said opening. There is a larger coaxial opening bd through the inner wall of the knob Z1. and the casing c is provided with an annular flange ci" of slightly less diameter than the last mentioned opening fitting in said opening when the casing is in place. At the peripher7 of the flange there are radially extending and reciprocatingpins c5 having their inner ends chamfered. The flange o3 is cutaway within its periphery and at its outside wall as shown at c4 so that the pins e5 extend into the opening formed in so cutting' away the material ot the flange. This construction is illustrated more distinctly in Fig. 9.
The inner end of the casing c is screw threaded on its outer wall. The shank piece b2 is provided with internal threads which engage the threads upon the casing" e and said piece is provided with a flange b3,which comes adjacent to the opening' in the inner wall of the knob o and closes said opening. The shank piece b2 is provided at its inner end with the annular conical extension han. This extension lits into the annular opening' c4, its conical surface engaging the chamfered inner ends ofthe pins and forcingsaid pins outward, the outer ends of the pins then engage against the inner surface of the wall at the edge oic the opening` in the inner wall of the knob l) and prevent the remova-l of said knob. The engagement of the pin c5 with thewall of the knob t is illustrated in Fig. l0. This not only prevents the remo *al of the knob li axially but prevents a rotation of the knob upon the casino; c by engaging in a slot in the knob l) as illus trated in the last mentioned figure.
The inner end of the casing (f abuis again't a shoulder 7) in the shank piece Z22. There is a screw o7 inserted through a screw hole in the radial face o't the shoulder 7# which engages the inner end of the casing c. The outer escutcheon rZ extends over the inner end of the shank piece 52 so as to prevent access to the screw c7. Thus when the knob is assembled and in place the parts cannot be removed from the outside of the door to permit unauthorized access to the operating mechanism.
e is a sleeve screw-thretuled on its outer wall. (See especially Figs. 15. 16 and 17.)
The outer eseutcheon CZ is provided with n.-
ternal screw threads which engage the screw-threads upon this sleeve and the spindle oi: the knob b turns in said sleeve as a bearing. The inner end ot the sleeve v is milled off at its inner end` as shown at (f e* Fig. 16. and fits between the flanges li on the yoke E so as to prevent the rotation ot the sleeve e. Said sleeve lits upon lthe part` 2f its end engaging the shoulder o4. By ro tatingthe escutcheon d its position longzitudinally of t-he knob spindle inay be adjusted so as to bring` its inner peripheral surface firmly and accurately against the outer surface ot the door.
The above construction as far as the sleeve and escutcheon are concerned is the saule both at the outside and inside ot the door but the sleeve e adjacent to the inner surface of. the door is provided with a slot e2 through its wall of considerable lateral extent. and a slot e of less extent extendingT troni the slot e2 to the outer edge of said sleeve. See also Figs. 18, 19 and Q0.
f/ is a pin-lock in the easingN c". its inner end (/2 beingl enlarged and restinoA against a shoulder in the interior of said casing to prevent the removal of said lock. g a diametrically extendiner slot in the outer end of the pin-lock '(7. 71. is a hollow cylindrical part having` a lug 7b4 extendingtroni its in ner end. the part 71y ts into the inner end of. the casing" c. its lug /L engaging in the slot (73 in the inner end of said pin lock. The evlindrical part z is held in position by a shoulder on the shank piece h2 and by the engagement of the inner end of the tubular extension (7)8 of the outer knob.
a is the inner knob. this is secured to a tubular sleeve da by the conventional set screw o2 extendingr through the wall ot the shank of said knob and engaging the outer wall ot said sleeve. The sleeve o. forms an exten sion of the knob (t constituting the spindle of said knob and at its inner end is provided with the lug afi for actuating the bolt li through engagement with lugs on the voko E as above described and illustrated in Fiend.
As shown most distinctly in Figs. (l. T and 8 the sleeve or spindle n? is provided with a broadly extending aperture fr through itt` wall and a narrow slot al@ extending outward from the center of the slot fr and a correspondinrT slot a?. in line with the slot flf. extending from the slot ar to the inner end ol said sleeve or spindle. The sleeve n" tits over and may rotate upon the tubular extension o8 of the knob Z). the slots a and fr? normalliv registering with the slot on in the tubular portion 58.
f is a sleeve screw-threaded on its inner wall which engages. with its interior screw threads. the screw threads at the end ot the tubular portion 72S of the spindle of the knob The inner end of the sleeve f engages llll llt:
against the outer end of the sleeve or spindle a3. The sleeve j is provided with an annular groove f3 around its outer surface and in this groei/'e is placed a spring-clamp (Fig. E23, Sheet 1). The lug f from said spring extends through an aperture in the Wall oi the sleeve and engages in the slot b9 in the tubular extension t8 thus locking the sleeve ,t from relative rotation.
h2 is a radial pin extending through and liked in the Wall of the part L and projecting into the cylindrical bore of said part.
j is a rod located Within, and coaxial With, the spindles of the knobs above described, and provided with the enlarged cylindrical end jg. ln the outer Wall of this enlarged end of the rod j is cut the spiral thread g3, in which engages the pin ft2. 4
m is a sleeve around the rod j at the center thereof in Which sleeve said rod is free to rotate. against the inner end of the enlargement 17'2 of the rod .7'4 is a collar surrounding the rod j and pinned thereto so that its inner end engages the other end oi the sleeve m and thus the sleeve m isheld from longitudinal motion relative to the rod m2 is a lug extending radially outward from the sleeve m through the slot 739 in the tubular portion t8 of the spindle oit the knob b and through any slot registering therewith in surrounding sleeves. m3 is a second lug extending radially outward through said slots. The lug m2 is longer than the lug m3 and the latter is of suiiicient length to just pass Within the bore of the sleeve e.
[i5 is a pin extending radially outward from the end of the rod Which is adjacent to the inner surface of the door.
c is a'sleeve provided with a slot 7a2 in its Wall extending parallel to the axis thereof. The sleeve c fits over and is adapted to slide on the end of the rod y', the pin j being engaged by the edges of the slots 762. los is a thumb piece by which the sleeve- 7c may be turned. vThere is a slot f4 through the Wall of the sleeve f extending parallel to the axis of said sleeve and there is a laterally eX- tending slot f7 around the inner vvall of the sleeve f extending on each side of the slot f4 at the inner end of the same. There is a pin 734 extending from the sleeve 7c, its end engaging in the slots f4 f7. k3 is a compression spring surrounding the inner end of the 1 sleeve 7c, engaging against a flange 709 on said sleeve and against the sleeve f, thus tending to force the sleeve 7c to its outer position7 its motion in this direction being limited by the pin h4 engaging against the outer end of the slot f4. There is a coaxial opening through the outer Wall of the knob ct which is filled by the flange lo against which the spring 7c3 acts.
In the position shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 3, (see also Figs. 18, 19 and 20) the sleeve 7c One end of the sleeve m engages.
and consequently the rod j is prevented from rotating by the pin la* resting in the outer end of the slot f4. If, however, the sleeve 7s is pressed inward and then turned a hallc revolution the pin /64 passes into the lateral portion f7 of the grooves in the part ,t and the rod is turned a half revolution, the other end of the pin ict then engaging in the slot f4 and on being released returning to the locked position as at irst described. In this Way the rod j may be rotated at will by the operator on the inside of the door.
The turning of the rod 7' causes the longitudinal movement thereof by the pin It! engaging in the spiral slot 7'3 in the enlarged end of said rod.
.In the position of the parts shown in Figs. 1 and 18 the rod 7' has been turned until said rod is drawn to its position farthest to the left. In this position the lug m2 extending from the sleeve m passes through the slot b9 in the tubular extension 68 of the spindle of the knob b and the laterally enlarged slot e2 in the sleeve or tubular bearing e adjacent to the outer surface of the door, and the lug m3 extends through said slot b and into the slot a7 in the sleeve or spindle a3, thus the spindles of the tvvo knobs are locked together, by the lug m3 engaging in a slot in 'each of said sleeves, and both knobs are free to turn. the lug m2 oscillating in the broad slot e2.
By turning the rod j to the left it is moved longitudinally toward the right to the position shown in Fig. 2 in which the lug m2 engages 19) in the narrow slot e3 in the tubular bearing or sleeve e and the lug m3 extends into the laterally broad slot al? inthe spindle as of the knob a. In this position the knob ZJ is locked from rotation by the engagement of the lug m2 in the slot e? and the knob a is free to turn thus reciprocating the latcliing bolt B so that the door is locked from the outside but may be opened from the inside.
By further rotating the rod 7' a half turn to the left it is again moved toward the right and the lug m2 (Figs. 8 and 20) engages both in the slot e3 in the stationary sleeve or bearing e and in the slot a7 in the sleeve a3, the lug m3 then engaging in the slot a. In this position the spindles of the tvvo knobs are locked and prevented from rotating by the lugs fm2 m3 engaging in slots in the spindles of both of said knobs and in a slot e3 in the stationary part or bearing e.
The lug m2 is enlarged toward its outer end and in this position engages in a dovetailed slot E2 in the end of the yoke E as shown in Fig. 4. Thus vboth knobs are prevented from rotating and the latching bolt B cannot be pushed back because it is prevented from longitudinal movement by en gageinent of the large end ol': the lug m in the dovetailed slot E2 in the cross piece of the yoke E.
If the door is locked from the outside, it be unlocked b y' inserting a key in the pin-lock g and rotating the cylinder thereof thus rotating the cylindrical part it which carries the pin 7a2 with it, thus moving the rod longitudinally thereof. rIhe barrel et the pin-lock will necessarily be rotated to a definite position in order to insert or withdraw the key and the parts are so adjusted that one oit these positions of the barrel shall correspond to a relative arrangement o'f the parts which shall correspond to an unlocked position.
If desired, the sleeve f may be Jformed at its outer end to receive and cooperate with the barrel of a pin-lock which shall engage the sleeve 7c, this modification being illustrated in Fig. I3, and thus instead of the end setting arrangement above deT scribed, a key and lock may be used.
TFor setting the escutcheon accurately to place a construction shown in Fig. 22, may be adopted instead of employing the screw threads on the outer surface ot the bearings e. That is to say, from one of the escutcheens there may extend rods a: a; having internal threads, the rods being less than the thickness of any door that it shall be required to adjust the eseutcheon to, and a screw 7/ may be inserted through a properly located hole in the other escutcheon, its screw threaded shank engaging with the internal threads of a rod aff', as shown in Fig. 22. When the screw jl/ is tightened up the escutcheons will be firmly pla eed against the surface of the door and the distance apart o1" the escutcheons may vary to correspond to the thickness of the door.
