1, WINDow scREEN Filed Sep'b. 20, 1933 197rae/VEY Patented May 15, 1934 .UNITED sTATEs PM'ENTv OFFICE 5 Claims.
This invention relates generally to window screens of the roller type, and more particularly to a screen `of this kind conveniently adapted for installing upon the windows of automobiles.
The chief object of the invention is to provide a roller screen which may be readily mounted at the inner side of any automobile window or the like, and including means for holding the margins of the screen closely to the window frame when the screen is drawn.
Another object is to provide a roller screen for mounting upon a window, such as an automobilel window, the same including a roller screen mounted at one side of the window frame, preferably the top, for drawing vertically across the window, iiexible zipper strips secured to the side margins of this screen and mating zipper strips secured to the side pieces of the window frame and adapted to exactiy register with the zipper strips of the screen when the latter is drawn across theI window.
With these and such other objects and advantages in view as may appear in the course of the following specification, attention is directed to the accompanying drawing as exemplifying a practical embodiment of the invention, and wherein Figure 1 is an elevation of a screen constructed in accordance with this invention, the same being mounted at the top of the inner side of a window frame, and the screen being shown as drawn down over the window and there locked through the operation of the zipper slides.
Figure 2 is a view similar to that of Figure 1, the screen, however, being shown as rolled up.
Figure 3 is a section on the line 3-3 of Figure 1.
Figure 4 is an enlarged detaill` of the zipper mechanism.
Figure 5 is a section on the line 5-5 of Figure 4.
In carrying out this invention, I provide a conventional form of spring-set roller 1, such as is ordinarily used upon window shades, the same including the roller proper 2, the interior spring 3, a round end. lug 4 and a fiat end lug 5. This roller is mounted in conventional manner in brackets 6 secured at the top of the inner side of the window frame 7, the flat lug 5 looking the spring against rotation while the roller itself may be rotated against the action of the spring. To this roller is fastened a flexible form of screen 8 cut to .size and secured to the roller by tacks 9. To the sides of the window frame 7 are secured attachment strips of fabric 10, or other suitable material, and to these strips 10 are secured zipper strips 11. Mating zipper strips 11a are then fastened to the side margins of the screen 8, but the upper ends of the strips 11a are cut sharply off as shown at 12, and the resulting zipper ends llb are tacked, as shown at 15, to the frame, or 0therwise secured to said frame in permanent association with the upper ends of the zipper strips 11. By this arrangement the zipper slides 13 may be drawn up to the position shown in Figures 2 and 4, onto the ends 11b, and so that the screen 8 may be allowed to roll up onto its roller through the operation of the interior spring 3.
In use the screen is simply pulled down across the window and the zipper strips 11 and 11a are properly aligned. The zipper slides 13 are then run down, whereby the stripsV 11 and 11a are interlocked and hold the screen closed to the frame 7. To raise the screen, this operation is, of course, reversed, the' slides 1B, as stated, being pulled up clear of the screen, onto the ends 11b. The lower margin of the screen is preferably reinforced by a stiff strip 14 to hold the screen to operative Shape. While the screen roller is here shown as mounted at the top of the window frame, it is obvious that the arrangement might easily be reversed, and the roller mounted at the bottom of the window frame,v the screen being then drawn upwardly. Or, the roller might be hung at either Vertical side of the frame, the screen being then drawn horizontally across the window.
While I have herein described a certain specific manner and method of constructing andassembling the elements of my invention, it is understood that I may vary from the same in minor details, not departing from the spirit of x'ny invention, so as best to construct a practical device for the purpose intended, as defined in the appendedclaims.
I claim:
1. In a device of the kind described for mounting on a window frame, a spring controlled roller screen arranged at one side of the frame, mating zipper strips arranged upon the screen and frame respectively, in co-operative relation, to hold the screen when drawn closed to the frame, and a zipper slide operatively mounted upon the zipper strips to close the screen and to release same for rolling up, the zipper strip of the screen being cut off at its upper end adjacent the screen roller, auxiliary means connecting said cut off zipper end to the upper end of the frame strip, said cut off zipper' end portion being unconnected to the screen, whereby the zipper slide may be with-- drawn to the upper ends of the zipper strips and 2. For mounting:` on a window frame, a device of the kind described, the same comprising a spring controlled roller screen arranged at one side of the frame, a zipper strip supported from the frame at one side of the screen, a mating zipper strip upon the adjacent side margin of the screen and adapted to co-act with the zipper strip of the frame, the end of the zipper strip of the screen however being cut off adjacent the roller and freed from the screen and permanently associated with the adjacent end of the zipper strip of the frame, and a zipper slide operatively mounted upon the said permanently associated ends of the zipper strips and arranged to slide upon and close the mating zipper strips of screen and frame.
3. For mounting on a rectangular window frame having top and side members, a spring controlled roller screen mounted upon the top member of the frame, an attachment strip mounted upon one side member of the frame with its upper end disposed adjacent the end of the roller of the screen, a zipper strip secured to the attachment strip, a mating zipper strip end mounted upon the attachment strip adjacent the screen roller and in operative association with the zipper end of the zipper strip mounted as aforesaid upon the attachment strip, a mating zipper strip mounted upon the adjacent side margin of the screen immediately below the zipper strip end secured to the said attachment strip, and a zipper slide operatively mounted upon the said mating zipper strips.
4, In a device of the kind described for mounting on a window frame, a spring controlled roller mounted at the upper member of the frame, a
`flexible screen secured by one margin to the roller and adapted to be drawn down across the window, a stiffening strip at the lower free margin of the screen, an attachment strip secured to one side member of the window frame, a zipper strip secured to said attachment strip, a mating zipper strip secured to the adjacent side margin of the screen, the upper end of -the latter being severed and free of the screen and secured to the attachment strip in operative association with the upper, end of the zipper strip of the attachment strip, and a zipper slide operatively mounted upon the said zipper strips for closing the margin of the screen when drawn.
5. In a device of the kind described for mounting on a window frame, a flexible screen secured by one margin to the upper member of the frame and adapted to be drawn down over the window,
an attachment strip securedto one side member of the window frame, a zipper strip secured to said attachment strip, a mating zipper strip secured to the adjacent side margin of the screen,
the upper end of the latter being severed and KINNEY I. MILLER.
