ATTORNEY'.

Patented Oct. 8, 1935 UNITED STATES WIND STOP George E. Miller, Cleveland Heights, Ohio Application April 12, 1935, vSerial No. 16,061

8 Claims.

Y This invention relates to wind stops, and more particularly to wind stops which are designed with special reference to use with the bottoms of 1 f doors. The general object of the invention is to 54 provide a device of this character which is simple in construction and inexpensive `of production; which may be readily applied to an object, such as adcor.- without the necessity for disguring M or altering the construction of the latter; and 10" which will effectually prevent the passage voffany materialamount 'of `wind or water beneath the door to which it is applied.

I realize the foregoing objects in and through the construction and arrangement of parts illus- 15 trated in the accompanying drawing, wherein Fig. 1 represents an elevation of the lower portion Vof a door having my wind stop applied thereto; Figs. 2 and 3 are details in section corresponding respectively to the lines 2-2 and 3-3 of Fig. 1; 20 andgFig. 4 is a perspective view of the form of spring which I prefer to use in connection with the swinging end of my wind stop.

The wind stop shown, described, and claimed herein is of the general type of that disclosed in 25 my Patent No. 1,496,012, issued June 3, 1924, but

embodies changes thereover which are advantageous in certain installations.

Describing the various parts by reference characters, I denotes the lower portion of a doorv 30 which is hinged at 2 to one of the side frames or jambs 3. The door is shown as an inside door, no carpet strip or threshold being provided and there being a space beneath the bottom 4 of the door, which may receive carpeting or a rug.

35 My wind stop is slidably mounted on one side of the bottom of the door. It includes a supporting base member 5 (preferably a wooden strip) having a recess or rabbet 6 in its inner or doorfacing side extending from the bottom toward 40 the top thereof. Mounted in said recess or rabbet is thewind-excluding strip member 1, preferably of felt or rubber. The member 'I may be secured to the supporting base member 5 in any convenient manner, as by glue.

45 The parts 5 and 1 are mounted upon the bottom of the door by means of va wood screw 8 extending through the strip and into the door adjacent to the hinged edge of the same and by means of a U-shaped metal clamping frame ex- 50 tending beneath the bottom of the door adjacent to the swinging edge of the same. A spring washer 9 is interposed between the head of the screw 8 and the base member 5. The U-shaped clamping frame comprises two vertical branches 55 I0 and II connected by the horizontal branch I2.

(o1. en -rss) IIJ by means of short bolts or rivets I4. Between 5 the base member and the branch I there is interposed a flat leaf spring I having openings I5a through which'thev bolts I4 extend. This spring has a flat intermediate portion which lbears against the branch Ill and iiexible end portions 10- I51jwhic'h'engage the base member. By employing the spring I5, ISS. I5b,'I'am enabled to make the frame I0, II, and I2 of comparatively heavy and rigid material.

It will be noted that the end of the strip I which is adjacent to the hinged edge of the door is rounded off, so as to permit the door to swing on its hinges without interference by Said strip'.

With the parts constructed and arranged as described, the operation will be readily understood. When the clamping frame is in the elevated positionV shown in Fig. 1, a space is provided beneath the strip 'I for circulation 0I air, said space extending a considerable distance from the swinging edge of the door toward the hinged edge of the same. When it is desired to close this space, it is necessary only to push downwardly on either` the hook I3 or the hook I3a, thereby lowering the clamping frame and the wind-stop assembly to bring the lower edge of the member 1 into 30 engagement with the oor.

The construction shown herein is useful, notonly in connection with inside doors generally, but with doors of bathrooms, such as those employed in hotels, where it may often be necessary to employ some means for preventing water from the bath from passing beneath the door and injuring the rugs or vcarpeting in the rooms with which the baths are associated.

l The attachment is practically universal, requiring only such variations in the length of the branches I0, I'I, and I2 and of the stop as may be necessary to accommodate variations in the width and thickness of doors.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim is:

1. A wind stop applicable to the edge portion of a door and slidable thereupon and comprising, in combination, a U-shaped frame, a wind stop comprising a base and a strip carried thereby, the said base being secured to one of the parallel branches of the said frame, and a spring interposed between said branch and said strip.

2. A wind stop applicable to the edge portion of a door and slidable thereupon and comprising, in combination, a U-shaped frame, a wind stop comprising a strip secured to one of the parallel branches of the said frame, and a spring interposed between said branch and said wind stop.

3. A wind stop applicable to the edge portion of a door and slidable thereupon and comprising, in combination, a U-shaped frame,.a base secured near one end thereof to one of the parallel branches of said frame, a strip carried by said base, a spring interposed between the said branch and the said base, and means for pivotally connecting the opposite end of said base thereof to the edge portion of a door.

4. A wind stop applicable to the edge portion of a door and slidable thereupon and compris-` ing, in combination, a U-shaped frame, a strip secured near one end thereof to one of the parallel branches of said frame, a spring interposed between the said branch and the said strip, and means for pvotally connecting the opposite end of said strip thereof to the edge portion of a door.

5. A wind stop applicable to the edge portion of a door and slidable thereupon and comprising, in combination, a U-shaped frame, a base and a strip of pliable material carried thereby, the said base being secured to one of the parallel branches of the said frame, and a spring interposed between the said branch and the said base and anchored therebetween and comprising an elongated flat central portion and exible end portions deected from the plane of the central portion.

6. A wind stop applicable to the edge portion of a door and slidable thereupon and comprising, in combination, a U-shaped frame, a strip carried 5 thereby and. connected to one of the parallel branches of the said frame, and a spring interposed between the said branch and the said strip and anchored therebetween and comprising an elongated flat central portion and flexible end portions deflected from the plane of the central portion. r

'7. A wind stop asin claim 6 having the frame and spring connected thereto adjacent one end thereof, and means for pivotally securing the l5 opposite end thereof to the edge portion of a door.

8.' A wind stop applicable to the edge portion of a door and slidable thereupon and comprising, in combination, a U-shaped frame, a base having 20 a rabbet extending upwardly from the bottom `of one of the sides thereof, a strip of pliable material in said rabbet, a spring interposed between one of the branches of said Aframe and the opposite side of the said base, the said spring having an 25 elongated flat central portion and flexible end portions deected from the plane of the central portion, and means securing the said base and the central portion of said spring to the said branch. 30
