R. SMITH Dec. 1, 1925' S TRIKER PLATE Filed Oct. 2. 1924 FIGUEKE 5 INVENTOR WW z ATTORNQY Patented Dec. 1, 1925.

UNITED STATES ROBERT SMITH, 0F NEAR SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA.

STRIKER PLATE.

Application filed October 2, 1924. Serial No. 741,252.

To all whom it may concern."

Be it known that I, ROBERT SMITH, a citizen of the United States, and residing near San Jose, in the county of Santa Clara and State of California, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Striker Plates, of which the following is a specification.

In the building of automobile bodies and in architectural work where, hinged doors are used, a striker plate is mounted upon the door jamb and so adjusted that when the door is swung shut the latch will engage the opening therein and hold both the door and latch in a closed position without rattling. After the lapse of a little time, especially in the case of automobiles, constant use will'so loosen the door that the latch will move somewhat in the keeper causing an unpleasant rattling.

It is the object of the present invention to provide a striker plate or keeper so constructed as to be readily adjusted from timeto time to rattling.

In the drawing Figure 1 is a face view of a striker plate embodying my invention.

Figure 2 is a sectional View on line 22 of Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a perspective view of the adjustable member of the striker plate.

positively secure the door against- Referring more particularly to the draw ing, I show at 1 a. portion of a door jamb recessed at 2 to receive the bar 3 of the latch on the door mounted therein.

At 4 I show a striker plate having an opening 5 formed therein and held in position on the door jamb by means of screws 6, its inner portion being turned at right angles to close off the recess 2 from the interior of the car as shown at 7.

This is ordinary construction except as to part 7, and when the door is closed the bar .3

5 engages edge 8 of opening 5 and it is the play of the bar 3 against this edge when the door is closed that causes annoyance.

To overcome this condition I provide a plate 9 having an opening 10 formed there- This plate 9 is also provided with slots 11, each slot engaging a screw 6 and lying parallel to the opening in striker plate 4 in the direction of movement of latch bar 3 when the door is opened or closed.

Turned inwardly from the front edge 12 of plate 9 is a flange 13, and extending inwardly from the opposite edge 14 is a flange 15. The flange 15 is tapped at 16 and the portion 7 of plate 4 is drilled at 17 to receive a screw 18.

When the device is assembled as shown the plate 9 lies flat against the inner surface of striker-plate 4 and it is obvious that by turning screw 18 with its head bearing against portion 7 of plate 4 the whole plate 9 is drawn inwardly.

Assuming that the device has been in use some time and it has become necessary to take up the play of bar 3 in opening 5, the screws 6 are loosened. and the screw 18 turned until the plate 9 is moved inwardly 'of the appended claim.

It is clear from the foregoing disclosure that I have provided a device that is simple in form and construction, economical to manufacture, and highly efiicient in its practical application.

I claim A striker plate consisting of a plate having a latch recei ing opening formed therein and an end portion formed at right angles to the plane of said opening, said end portion having an orifice formed therein, and means for securmg said plate to a door amb, a

second plate slidably mounted against the inner side ofsaidfirst plate and having its central portion cut and bent back to form two parallel flanges and to form a latch receiving opening therein and having slots therein to receive said securin means, one of said flanges normally being 1n alignment with one edge of said latch receiving open- 'ing, and the other flange being threaded to receive a screw, and a screw slidably engag-
