WINDOW SHELF Filed April 23, 1935 Arron/Vex UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE WINDOW SHELF May Harrison Biggers, Webster Groves, 'Mo. Application April 23, 1935, Serial No. 17,820
My invention 1 Claim.
has relation to improvements in shelves, more particularly those adapted to be attached to windows, and it features of construction consists in the novel more fully set forth in the specification and pointed out in the claim.
The principal object of the present invention is to provide a shelf easily attached to a as not to interfere with of the window.
A further object is to that may be quickly and window and so constructed the opening and closing provide a shelf for windows that may be easily applied and easily removed, requiring no for attachment thereto.
alterations in the window It is a further object of the invention to provide a window shelf that is simple and ornamental in appearance and at the same time capable of being manufactured at low cost. Other advantages inherent in the invention will be better apparent from a detailed description thereof companying drawing, in
in connection with the acwhich Figure 1 is a perspective view of a window frame and sash showing my improved shelf applied to the sash; Fig. 2 is a vertical section through the sash and shelf taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1; Fig. 3 is a for the shelf, a fragment top plan of one of the hangers of the shelf and window sash also being shown; Fig. 4 is a cross-sectional detail taken on the line 4-4 of Fig. 1; Fig. 5
is a side elevation of a modified form of hanger; Fig. 6 is a vertical section of a further modified form of hanger constructed for adjustability as to length; and Fig. 7 is a rear elevation of the hanger shown in Fig. 6 with the upper and lower ends broken away.
Referring to the drawing,
dow frame and S a win F represents a window sash slidably fitted therein. My improved window shelf comprises a pair of hangers l,
I carried by the top rail R of the sash S, each of said hangers being bent to provide a loop or stirrup 2 a bifurcated flange 3, 3
end 4 of the metal at its lower end and at its upper end. The
strap 5, of which the hanger is comprised, is preferably spot-welded at a to the long member 6 above the end 4 the ing 1 to receive a mental rosette 9. carried by the stud 8 an long of the hanger, and slightly member 6 has an openstud 8 projecting from an orna- A brace member ID is pivotally d held thereon by a nut H. The brace member ID has its free end provided with teeth l2, the purpose of which is to engage and bite into the side rail 13 of the window sash and brace the shelf as a whole against 1ongitudinal swaying movement. There is a brace member In for each hanger I and when said brace members are in engagement with side rails l3, l3 (as shown dotted Fig. 1) the shelf is securely held in position.
In the forks 3, 3 comprising the bifurcated 1o flange there are holes 0-, o for positioning over the L-screws l4, l4 properly secured in the top of the rail R. of the window sash S. The loops or stirrups 2, 2 of the hangers are adapted to receive a glass slab [5 which comprises the shelf 15 proper. As shown in Fig. 2 the shelf l5 rests against the window and inclines slightly to the rear so if there is a tendency for any articles on the shelf to slide they will slide against the window which will arrest them.
In Fig. 5 I show a modification of the shape of the hangers. In this form of the invention the hanger I6 is merely L-shaped having a horizontal component 11 with an upwardly turned end I8 in place of the loop or stirrup 2 of the 25 main form. The flange 19 at the upper end of the hanger is formed as in the main form.
In the modification shown in Figs. 6 and 7 the hanger 20 is identical with the hanger l of the main form, except that the long member is made in two pieces 21 and 22, the former having an opening 23 and the latter a long slot 24 through which a stud 25 passes and is secured by a wing nut 26. By virtue of the stud and slot connection of the members 2| and 22 the hanger 20 is adjustable vertically so that it may be adapted to any style of window.
Having described my invention, I claim:
' A shelf for windows comprising a pair of hangers suspended from the window sash, each of said hangers having a brace hinged to the hanger for lateral projection to engage with the sash, means at the upper end of the hangers for engagement with the sash, said hangers terminating at their lower ends in stirrups, a shelf member disposed in said stirrups, and means for adjusting the length of said hangers.
