CORPORA ION F CONNECTICUT CLEANING TOOL Application filed September 23, 1927. Serial No. 221,575.
i our invention relates to the class oftools more" especially designed for cleaning windows andslmilar surfaces, where. water. is employed in a part of the operation, and
an object of the invention, among others, is
the provision of a tool of this class by means of which the entire operation ofwashing. and drying the cleaned surface may be efliciently andquickly performed. ,1
One form of, tool embodying our invention and in the construction and use of which the objects herein setout, as well as others, may be attained, is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure l is a side view of our improved Figure 2 is a view incentral crosswise sectionthrough the tool. 1
Figure 3' is a top View. p Figure 4 is a View showing the parts disassembled but-approximately in their rela tive positions. t Figure 5 is a detail sectional view, scale enlarged, showing the means for connecting the handle to the brush frame, I
This improved cleaning tool embodiesin a singlestructure two members'commonly employedfor washingwindows and similar surfaces, themembers being so arranged that either may be used independently of the other for accomplishing apurpose. It will, however, beunderstood 'thatwhile the invention contemplates means for readily securing the wiper to .the tool, yet the invention is also present in thestructure irrespective of the wiper. I r p In the accompanying drawings the numeral 5 indicatesthe frame of a brush that may be formed in any suitable manner to receive'and secure thebristles 6, in the structare-herein shown a brush strip comprising this frame being of U-shape in cross section and within the trough of which the bristles or-otherbrush material are or-is clamped between the sides of the trough shaped strip. This frame preferably has parallel sides joined'by rounded ends and it is made. from a single strip bent to shape and having the "50 meeting ends between clamp plates.78 and at about midway between theends, as shown in Figure 2 of the drawings. a
The lower clamp plate 7 has oppositely arranged flanges 9 and the upper clamp plate 9 has grooves 10 at opposite sides terminat ing in flanges 11, the distance between adja cent flanges 9 and 11 on the lower and up p erclamp plates being sufficient to receive s'1 cles12 of the frame, said sides being 1ocatcd in the grooves 10 and held therein by the plate 7 It will be noted by'inspectmg Figs. 4and 5 that the middle portion of the plate 7, that is the portion extending longitudinally between the flanges 9, is arched or bowed transversely so that when this middle portion of the plate 7 isdrawn toward the plate 8 by the screw 14 and its cooperating nut, the flanges 9 will be moved away from each other, such movement causmg the flanges to clamp thesides 12 of the frame in the grooves 10. Holes 13 are formed through the clamp plates in position to register with each other and thereby constitute in efitect a single hole. Thisis preferably square to receive the squared portion of a clamp bolt 14 adjacenttothe head, a nut 15 being employed to secure the two plates together. V i socket 16 is formed to receive a handle 17, and this socket has a foot 18 particularly formed to fit and be secured to the clamp plates. To. thisend the foot is flattened and has a notch 19 through which the bolt 14 passes, and flanges 20 are formed von opposite sides of. the foot with notches 2l- 22 spaced apart to receive ribs 23 on the clamp. plate8 and within whiclrthe grooves 10 are formed. A thumb nut24 fitting {the bolt 14 serves to secure thefoot 18 "and thereby the socket 16 to the structure. a
The shank 25 of a wiper 26 is also adapted to be secured to the structurehereinbefore described, this shank being of' trough shape comprising'flanges 27 and a bottom 28, the latter having a notch 29 within which the bolt 14 is received and the bottom alsois provided with grooves 3081to fit Over the ribs23. i
The outerend of the wiper may be of any desired form and construction and when secured in place it is interposed between the foot 18 and the clamp plate 8, as illustrated in Figure 4, and in this case the notches 2122 on the foot 18 fit over the ribs 3283 within which the grooves 30-31 are formed, the thumb nut thus securing the wiperand the socket securely in place.
In accordance with the provisions of the patent statutes we have described the principles of operation of our invention, together with the device which we now consider to represent the best embodiment thereof, but we desire to have it understood that the device shown is only illustrative and that the invention may be carried out by other means and applied to uses other than those above set out.
