Application led November 16, 1921.

To all whom t may concern:

Be it known that we, LUDWIG WALICKI and CHARLES BOBER, citizens of Poland, residing at New Britain, in the county of Hartford and State of Connecticut, have 1nvented certain new and useful lmprove- :ments in Umbrella-Handle Lighting` Devices, of which the followingl is a specification.

Our invention relates to improvements in umbrella-handle lighting devices of the form in which an electric lighting device is incorporated in the struct-ure of the handle of an umbrella and the object of our improvement is to provide a structure of the form mentioned comprising as a fixed part a battery combined with a lighting device or bulb and a moving part in the'form of a switch or circuit closing member and a housing structure thereforthat is provided in the handle structure and in which the fixed part is manipulated as a unit and is readily removed for changing the battery.

ln the accompanying drawing Figure 1 is a side elevation of our improved umbrella-handle lighting device.

Figure 2 is'a rear elevation of the same, with the rear cap removed.

Figure 3 is a sectional view on an enlar ed scale on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2.

igure 4 is a side elevation on the same scale as Fig. 1 showing theparts in position for removing the lamp bulb.

Figure 5 is a similar view of the parts in position for removing the battery housing sleeve and connected parts.

Figure 6 is a perspective view of the switch.

Figure 7 is a side elevation, showing a modified form of switch.

Figure 8 is an enlarged view of the switch parts shown in Fig. 7, with parts thereof in section.

Our improved umbrella-handle ,lighting device comprises an umbrella-handle 10` that is provided with an incandescent lamp or bulb 11, a battery 12 for lighting the same, and a suitable circuit closing device or switch that is operated by a trigger 13 or other equivalent means for closing and opening the circuit at will, the parts being constructed and arranged in a special manner, as will be described.

rlfhe handle 10 comprises a neck or stem 14 that is provided at one end with an open- Specicaton of Letters Eatent.

ing 15 for the shaft of an umbrella and that l or grip portion 19 that overhangs the stem 14 on one side and is adapted to be grasped by the hand and serve as the handle proper as is common in handles for umbrellas and canes, and overhanging the opposite side or the stem 14 is the heel portion 20 that is adapted to support a cap 21 that serves as the closure for the heel end of the bore 17. The opposite, front end part 22 of the bore 17 is closed by a lens 23 that is held in place by means of a bevel structure 24. j

rlFhe housing for the unit 18 is in the form of a metallic tubular structure that is composed of a rear part 25 and a front part 26 of substantially equal length that have the opposed ends 27 connected by any suitable form of joint. Said tubular structure has a substantially uniform ldiameter forv the length of the rear part 25 and the portion of the front part 26 adjacent the junction 27 and for the front and major portion of the front part 26 the diameter is reduced, there being a shoulder 28 immediately in front of the junction 27.

The rear part 25 has the rear end 29. closed and has on the side towards the stem 14 a 30 and an opening 31 in the side wall.

lu aid lug 30 is positioned adjacent the rear end and serves as a key or guide in cooperation with a keyway 32 in the side wall of the bore 17 for positioning the unit 18.

The opening 31 cooperates with the contact tip 33 at the end of a rod or pin 34 that is carried by the trigger 13 and that constitutes the operative element of the moving member.

The trigger 13 is slidably mounted for longitudinal movement along the outer face 35 of the stem 14 andq is preferably located adjacent what may be designated as the throat of the handle structure, at the corner formed by the stem 14 and the grasping portion 19. A suitable chamber 36 is provided in the stem 14 and the adjacent part of the 'the rear. part 25.

portion that is asubstantial fit for the battery12 and is open at the front end and hasl a bore 38 at the rear end portion-'that is relatively enlarged and is closed at the rear end 29. I l A The battery 12 extends from the front bore 37 into ther-ear and enlarged bore 38 and 'between said battery 12 and the wall oi said enlarged bore 38 is a metallic sleeve. 39 made of thin sheet material that iseopposed to the battery 12 and a separating` and' insulating sleeve 40 intermediate sa1d metallic sleeve 39 andthe wall41. for, the enlarged bore 38, said wall 41 being the side wall of Near the front end of the front bore 37 is an inwardl directed rim or ledge 42 of thin sheet nieta that 'serves as anI abbreviated screw thread in cooperation with the reflector-housing or bulb holder 43 that carries the lamp 11.

Said lamp or bulb holder 43 isllmited 1n its inward movement-along the bore 37 by .means of an outwardly projectingvrim 44 that'abuts against the end face of the front tubular part 26. Said rim 44 serves as a handle for screwing thel bulb in and out .and projects slightlybeyond the side wall, ofthe front tubular part 26 to 'facilitate manipulating the same.`

The front endI part 22 .of the bore 17 .fitsy i the front tubular part 26 andis provided '-,lenclosing tubular structure. fg' f sleeve 39 extends rearwardly beyond the vbat- .l tery 12 and encloses the space 48 between the ina tip bulb '11..

part of the end wall 29 and in abutment with'lthe end" wall 29. mentioned isan insulating washer 47 thatcooperates with the insulating; sleeve 40o-to insulate the metallic sleeve 39 from theU4 Saidmetallic insulating vwasher 47 and the opposed end wall 49 of thebattery 12. l

vserves to tend to thrust'the battery 12 forowardly.

The front end ofthe battery terminates 51 that makes contact with the The battery 12`is composed of two. individual cells 52 that are connected in series.

y,As described, the tip portion 53 of the muerta with an enlargement 45 at the front end for@V tip 33 described. the inward movement of the uni t '1 8whenl the' bore 17 spring 50 is housedv in the" spaceenergias lamp 11 is electrically connected with the sleeve 39 through the medium of the battery 12 and Ithe spring 50, which sleeve may be designated as the inner sleeve, the wall 4l being designated as' the outer sleeve. Said outer "sleeve 41 is electrically connected to the shell portion 5.4 of the lamp 11 through the medium ofthe lamp holder 43 .and the wall structure of the tubular parts 26 and 25,.` f

vThus the electrical circuit for lighting the vlamp 11 may be completed by interconnecting the sleves 39 and 41. This result is \eli"ected by means of. the opening 31 in the outer sleeve 41.

The insulating tube 40 is cut away in registration with the opening 31 and the inner sleeve 39 bridges said opening-31, so that the contacting tip 33 isl adapted to electri cally interconnect the two sleeves 39 and 41.

The movin member, composed of the trigger 13 an the .rodv34, has a limited to `and fro movement sufiicient to have the tipv theunder face of the graspin'glpart 19L of end being-secured'by means of nails 56 to .the handle Astructure 10, and in lieu ofthe kwardly flhegcontacting end 33fof y 34a; operates""substantially like the end :or
