I H II l/WTNE'SSE'S gum/Mo e VICTOR w. PAGE, on NEW YORK, 1m Y.

ADJUSTABLE room PEDAL.

Application filed May 7,

To aZZ whom it may concern.

Be it known that I, VICTOR W. PAGE, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, Kew Gardens, borough of Queens, in the county of Queens and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Adjustable Foot Pedal, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in mechanical elements, and it pertains more particularly'to foot levers.

Itis the primary object of the invention to provide a new and improved foot lever by means of which adjustment of position of the foot pedal of the lever may be had.

It is a further object of the invention to so construct the foot lever that when the ad justments are made the'several parts may be tightened to prevent rattling thereof.

it is a still further object of the invention to provide a foot lever in which both the angular position of the foot pedal relative to the lever and the distance of the foot pedal from the lever, may be adjusted.

With the above and other objects in view, reference is had to the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a view partly in elevation and partly in section of a foot lever constructed in accordance with the present invention;

Fig. 2 is a detail sectional view taken on the line 22 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a disassembled view of a modi fied form of the invention, and

Fig. 4: is a detail sectional view of the form of the invention shown in Fig. 3, with the several parts in assembled position.

Referring to the drawings and more particularly to Fig. 1, the reference character 5 designates a foot lever and said foot lever is provided upon its lower end with an opening by means of which it is secured to a shaft or other element adapted to be operated thereby. The lever 5 is provided with a lrerf 7 extending longitudinally thereof from the opening 6, and passing through the lever is a bolt or the like 8, by means of which the lower end of the lever may be securely gripped about the shaft to which it is to be attached, the said kerf 7 permitting this operation.

The opposite end of the lever is bifurcated as indicated at 9, and mounted between the Specification of Letters Patent.

Eatented Au. 8, 1922?.

1921. Serial No. 467,548.

furcations-of said bifurcated end is a casting 10. This casting 10 is provided with a lower arcuate lug 11,'and one edge of said lug-11 is provided with a'plurality of notches or the like 12. v The lug 11 is pivotally mounted between the furcations of the bifurcated end 9 of the lever 5 by means of a bolt 13, and passing through the furcations at the lower end thereof is a bolt 14, which latter bolt is adapted to engage one of the several notches 12 in order to secure the casting 10 against rocking movement about the bolt 13. i

The upper portion of the casting 10 i formed with a housing 15, andsaid housing. has its top wall split as at 16. Passing through the walls of the housing 15, is a bolt 17, the purpose of which Will be hereinafter more specifically described.

Having sliding movement in the housin 15, is a bar 18, and mounted upon one enc of said bar 18, is a foot pedal 19., This bar 18 is provided with a plurality of spaced notches 20, and these notches are adapted for engagement with the bolt 17 to prevent movement of the bar 18 longitudinally of the housing 15. v

This form of the invention operates in the following manner:

When the bolt 14 is removed, the casting 10 is free to rotate about its pivotal bolt 13 until the desired adjustment has been made. hen the several parts are in the desired position, the bolt 14 is inserted into engage ment with the notch 12 and thecasting 10 is prevented from rocking about its pivotal point 13.

if it is desired to change the relative distance between the foot pedal 19 and the lever 5, the bolt 1'7 is removed and the bar 18 is moved longitudinally of the housing 15 to the right in Fig. 1, until the desired position is reached, after which the bolt 17 is inserted into engagement with the notch 20 opposite the openings in which the bolt 17 is mounted. and said bolt is tightened, which causes. the side walls of the housing 15 to grip the bar 18 and serve in conjunction with the bolt to prevent longitudinal movement of the bar 18. I

In the form of the invention shown in Figs. 3 and 4, the upper end of the crank 5 is provided with a squared opening 30, and surrounding said squared opening 30, is a circular serrated face 31. In this embodiment of the invention the housing 15 is pro- I housing is securely clamped to the upper construction by means of which the angular vided with a depending lug and said lug 32 has a circular opening 33 bordered by a serrated surface 34. The serrations of the surfaceB l are engaged with the serrations of the surface 31, and with the parts in the desired adjustment, a bolt 35 is passed through the registering openings 30 and 83, said bolt 35 having a squared portion 36 received Within the squared opening 30 Which construction prevents the bolt 35 being turned relatively to the lever 5. Upon tightening the nut 37 of the bolt 35, the

end of the lever 5 in its desired adjustment. The construction of the housing 15 and the bar 18 is similar to that in the preferred form of the invention except that in the present instance the bar 18 is shown circular incross sectional form as is also the passage through the housing 15. i

From the foregoing it is apparent that the present invention provides a new and novel i ea-ere ably mounted in said housing, and a bolt extending transversely of said housing and lying Within one of the notches of the notched bar to prevent movement of the notched bar longitudinally of the housing,

said bolt also serving to grip the housing about the notched bar.

2; In an adjustable brake lever, a lever member, a housing pivotally mounted on said lever member, said housing having a notched Web, a bolt carried by said lever member and adapted to engage one of the notches of the notched Web to prevent movement of the housing relative to the lever member, a bolt carried by said housing, and an operating member slidably mounted in the housing and provided With notches adapted to singly receive said bolt, as and for the purposeset forth.

3. In an adjustable foot lever, a lever I member having a bifurcated end, a housing, a notched Web pivotally mounted in the bifurcated end of the said lever member, means for retaining the housing in adjusted position relative to the lever member, a notched operating member slidably mounted in said housing, and means extending transversely of the housing and adapted to singly engage the notches of the operating member to adjustably secure the operating member relative to thi housing, substantially as described.
