W. KLEENE WINDSHIELD CLEANER Dec. 2; 1924. 1,517,365

ME. KLEINE v BY I Maw description.

Patented cc. 2, I924.

I Application filed October 15, 1923, Serial No. 658,791.. Renewed October 10, 1924.

T all whom z't mag concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAMKLEINE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Mountain View, in'the county of Santa Clara eand State of California, have invented new and useful Improvements in -Wind shield Cleaners,-of which the following is a specification; t

Thls invention relates to lmprovements in Wind-shield cleaners, the principal object; of

which is to remove moisture or condensation from the windshield, in order that clear vision may be had therethrough.

Another object is to produce a device of ,15 this character which may be-attached to any ufacture.

A still further object is to provide a device which is neat in appearance and there- 'fore one which does not detract from the looks of the machine upon which it is attached.

Other objectsand advantages Wlll be ap-'- parentdu'ring the course of the following In the accompanying drawings forming a l part .of-this specification, and in which like an often numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the same,

Figure 1 is a front elevation of a windshield having my device applied to eachside thereof, and

Figure 2 is an enlarged detail cross sec-" tion-taken on the line 22 ofFigure 1.

In driving an automobile through rain or fogythe condensation upon thewind-shield becomes great enough-to. practically obscure the road, therefore making it exceed- "ingly dangerous .to drive and at the same time necessitating frequent stops to wipe the wind-shield. Applicant-1s aware ofthe fact that quite alargenumber of wipers have been placed upon the market, but these have to be constantly operated owing to the rapid accumu% 'lation ofthe moisture. Applicant has therefore devised a devicewhich is attached 'to the side of the wind-shield and which causes a draught of air to be blown over the surface of the wind-shield thereby automatically cleaning the wind-shield, and has furthermore provided means whereby any moisture in the air being blown over the wind-shield will be caught and filtered from the air.

. In-the accompanying drawings wherein.

for the purposeof illustration is shown a preferred embodiment of my invention, the numerals 5 and 6 refer to the usual uprights which support the top and bottom sections a I of a wind-shield? and 8. These sections may be hinged in the usual manner, .it being immaterial to my invention.

As the devices upon each side are identical, I will describe but one, it being understood that the other one is merely reversed so as 'to blow the air in the opposite direction.

Referring nowto Figure'2, it will be noted Y that a clamp' 9 is secured to the upright 6 and is adapted to engage an upwardly projecting member 11. This member 11 is rigidly secured to the back of an air collector receptacle 12. This air receptacle is substantiallysemi-circular in shape and is closed at its top and bottom as shown at 13 and 14.

A flat nozzle l6 is secured in one side of the receptacle 12and has a restricted opening 17 adapted to be positioned adjacent the glass of the wind-shield. This nozzle has one 1 wall extending into the receptacle a short distance asshown at 18. This construction together with a slight off-set 19of the receptacle forms a pocket in the back of the receptacle, the action of which pocket will be later described. A drain port 21 is placed in the bottom-14 and ate point within the pocket just referred to. In operation my device is placed upon each of the uprights as shown in Figure 1, so that the open side of the receptacle faces the front of the machine and is adapted to collect air as indicated by the arrows of Figure 2. These arrows also illustrate the manner in which the air collected isblown onto the wind-shield. Should there be'moisture on thewind-shield thiscurrent of air will almost immediately evaporate it, or if the moisture is being continuously collected as in the case of heavy fog or rain, the current of air will be sufiicient to blow the drops of condensation to one. side, thus leaving a clear vision space. a i

'Any water which may enter the receptacle will strike the curved wall thereof and will fall into the pocket and be discharged through the drain port 21.

' It will thus be seen that I have provided a very simple device which will not only blow a current of air across the wind-shield, but

invention herewith shown and described is to be' taken as a preferred example of the same and that various changes in the shape,

slze and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the subjoined claims.

Having thus described my invention, I claim 1. In a device of the character'described, the combination with a wind-shield having a support adjacent thereto, a receptacle having an open portion, a flattened nozzle secured to said receptacle, one wall of said nozzle extending into said receptacle, an offset portion formed in said receptacle, said off-set portion and said inwardly extending wall of said nozzle forming a pocket within said receptacle, for the purpose specified.

2. In a wind-shield cleaner, a receptacle having a substantially semi-circular cross section, said receptacle being closed at its top and bottom. a nozzle secured to said receptacle and extending from the top of said receptacle to the bottom thereof, the free end of-said nozzle being adapted to conduct the current of air from said receptacle to the windshield, an off-set portion formed in said receptacle, a drain port formed in the bottom of said receptacle, at a point adjacent to said off-set portion, and an extension formed on said nozzle adjacent said off-set portion.

In testimony whereof Iaffix my signature.
