'IHGMAS BOVEY, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.

DQQESTDP.

Application filed December 10, 1925.

Heretofore the keeping of doors of garages, barns and outhouses of all kines, particularly, when subject to the wind, has reqir ed the employment of braces, usually consi lifted and held in its raised position without any par icular effort.

This l accomplish.

' fully described, and as out in the claims.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of an open garage door, showing my invention applied thereto. r

Figure 2 is a bottom view of the retainer in which. the brace or red is caught when it lifted to the limit of its raised position.

Figure 3 is a front edge view of the same.

Figure t is a side view thereof.

Figure 5 is a perspective View of the pivot plate that secures the rod to the door.

In the drawings it represents a rod, preferably of steel, which is, preferably square in cross section. This rod is of a suitable length, say two feet long, and the end a that engr res the ground is sharpened, or bevelled, and its opposite end is pivoted between a couple of corresponding; lugr"; Z), Z), integral with and projecting from a Eit'flftlr'V-ljltilO C, which lat-- ter is attached to the inside surface of a door l), at a point near the order edge by means hereinafter particularly pointed thereof, and at a point, lOSS than the length of the re i, above the ground or floor. Thisscrew-plate preferably made of a rectangular piece of sheet metal, the longer edges of which are, between the ends thereof, bent outwards to form the pivotal-lugs D, Z). Any suitable means for pivoting one end of said rodto the door will, however, be satisfactory.

To hold the door open in the position desired the sharpened end of the rod is dropped until it engages and sticks into the ground or floor. l Vhen it is desired to release the door, the lower sharpened end of said rod is lifted until it strikes the door above its pivot where it engages and is held by a suitable retainer.

This retainer is made from a piece of flat nietal E, that is provided with a couple of screw-lugs cl, OZ, projecting from one transverse edge, at, say, approximately ninety de- Serial l lo. 34l=,659.

grces to each other. This is accomplished by bending piece E if-shaped, so that taclonger sides are at an angle of say inety degrees to each other, and so that the angle of said bend will strike between lugs (Z, d. l fhen the piece is secured to the door, at a point a little less than the leno'th of the rod above pivotal plate C, the bent side portions 0, 0, of piece IE will pro ect forwards. The outer end of portion 0 is, preferably, cut off square, but the outer end of the other portion (2 curved from its outer right hand corner toward its inner straight edge to serve as a guide, to direct said rod into a nest at, between said iie ht edge and the inner straight edge of the other truncated portion 6.

These stra. ht edges are opposite each other and are parallel an d sci a rated the width of rod A, which designed to rest between them when locked. in order to retain the rod in said nest, there is a latch G, that is onpgagred by the rod as it enters the nest m between portions 0, c. This latch consists of an lM-shaped member that is stamped out of a single piece of hcet metal, and is pivoted. by 2 rivet g near its inner angle, to the underside of portion a, so that the transverse edge of the inner sho"'er arm of the latch will, before rod A strikes it, project slightly in front of the inner transverse edge of the nest The width of this shorter arm is such that, when the latch member is moved towards the door, its rear transverse edge engages thelugr (Z bacx of it, and its movement Willbe liuiited thereby.

The longer arm of said latch, projects forward beyond the front truncated edge of por-- tion 6, andv is made i .r and forms a head 7t, that has its forward ed e curved or cannned in a direction towari s the cannucd ed re of portion 0. This curved portion of the head serves as a guide against which the rod strikes at the same time it engages the curved edge 7' of portion 0. The inner id of this curved edge terminated in a shoulder it, the outer angle of which projects slightly in front of the entrance of the nest m that is occupied by the rod when the latter is at the limit of its raised position.

V'Vhen it is desired to raise and retain the red A, it is grasped, below the pivotal-plate C, and lifted until its upper end portion strikes the head of the latch. it strikes the curved edge of the head of this latch it forces the latter aside until it passes shoulder is, thereof and the latch immediately gravitates back to rod can be moved forward its sharpened end again engages its original position, so thatsaid shoulder k thereof is-moved in front 01" the rod A and prevents its withdrawal from the nest. In order to release the rod, the latch ispushed or moved by hand until the shoulder 70 is away "from the'front of the same, whereupon said and dropped until the ground or floor. a

Ifdesired the shoulder .Lcan be inclined up- I wards slightly, as shown'in-eigsi 2 and .3, to assist the passage of the rod and to prevent tion'with a retainercomprising a suitable ITO screw-plate fastened to the inside of the door above the pivotal pointoI" the rod, a pivotal autoi-naticlatch member pro ect1ng from said plate and movable by gravity in a plane inclined slightly tothe horizontal, the rod engaging portion of which is normally in the path of the rod and which is pushed aside by said rod'w hen the latter is raised to the limit of its uppermost position, and automatically returns-to its original position to retain said 2'. -A door-stop comprising a rod pivoted at one end to the inside of the door, in combination with a retainer comprising a suitable screw-platefastened to the inside of the door above'the pivotal pointlof the rod, and a pivoted latchprojecting laterally from said plate retain the rod.

A door-stop comprising a rod pivoted at one end'to the inside of a door, in combination with a retainer consisting or? a mounting plate secured to the door above the pivot of the rod,a pair of spaced lugs projecting laterally 'Irom said plate and adapted to receive the rod whenv the latter is raised, and a pivoted latch member coacting with said lugs and havinga hooked forward portion adapted to be engaged by the rod to move the-latch member on itspivot to'permit positioning of the rod between the lugs, said latch member having a shoulder back of its hooked end that is engaged by the rod after passing the hooked portion whereby to return the latch member to normal position-with the hooked portion in front of the rod to retain the latter between said lugs.

4. A door-stop comprising a rod pivotedat one end to the inside of a door, in combination with a retainer comprising a scrmv-plate having two screw-lugs projecting from its rear tra sverse edge that are secured to the inside of a door above the pivotal point of the rod and having two su'table forwardly projecting and separated poi ions that are bent V-shupcd to each other, and a latch pivoted to the underside of one of said portions having its forward end pointed and projecting in front of said portion and has a shoulder on its inner edge,

A door-stop comprising a rod pivoted at one end to the inside of a door, in combination with a retainer compriringa screw-plate having two screw-lugs projecting from the rear edge thereof that are secured to the inside of a door above the pivotal point of said rod, and has two suitable forwardly projecting and separated portions that are bent V-shapcd to each other, and a latch pivoted to the underside of one of said portions and has its forward pointed end projecting in front of the portion to which it is pivoted that has a shoulder on its inner edge, and whom. rear edge engages the screw-lug back of it to limit the movement.

7. A. door-stop comprising a rod pix'olcd at one end to the inside of a door, a scrcw-platc consisting of a piece of sheet metal the original rectangular shape of which has its verl iral edges bent forward between the upper and lower ends thereof between which said rod is pivoted, in combination with a retainer comprising a suitable screw-plate fastened to the inside of the door above the pivotal point of the rod, and a pivoted latch projecting laterally from said plate which latch is pushed aside by said rod when the latter is raised to the limit of its uppermost position, and is gravitated back to its position to retain said rod.
