April 2, 1940. A. zloLKowsKl CURTAIN AND DRAPERY SUPPORT Filed June 22, 195e 2 sheets-sneer 1 April 2, 1940 A. zloLKowsKl CURTAIN AND DRAPERY SUPORT Filed June 22, 1938 2 sheets-sneer 2 Patented Apr. 2, 1940 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 1 Claim.

This invention relates to supports or racks for curtains and draperies, and particularly to supports adapted to be fastened to walls and Window or door frames.

The main object of the invention is to produce a support for curtains and the like, comprising a pair of fixtures to be fastened in spaced relation to a wall or frame, a pair of cooperating supporting members, one of which is removably mounted in each fixture, the supporting members of said pair being separately adjustable longitudinally, and a locking device for connecting the proximate ends of the supporting members.

A further object is to provide meansy in the fixtures for pivotally connecting each of the supporting members to the iixture and for limiting the pivotal movement of said supporting members. f

Another object is to provide a support for curtains and the like, invwhich the curtain supporting bars may be connected detachably to extend continuously from one attaching xture to the other or may be spaced apart between their proximate ends, either midway of the attaching fixtures or at one side or the other of said median point. The advantages of this and other features of construction will be explained in the following specilcation.

The invention may be embodied in single or multiple type supports, but in the drawings I have shown the double type, suitable for supporting glass curtains and draperies.

In the drawings:

Fig. 1 is a front elevation of a support embodying my invention.

Fig. 2 is a plan view of same.

Fig. 3 is a horizontal sectional view, on an enlarged scale, through part of the support, on the line`3-3 of Fig. 1. I Fig. 4 is a perspective view of one of the locking or connecting devices used in the invention.

Fig. 5 is a front elevation showing the forward one of the two supports adjusted to separate the bars of the pair constituting said support.

Fig. 6 is a plan View of the support of Fig. 5, with one side of the forward supporting bar pivotally swung to another position.

Fig. '7 is a perspective view of the free end of one of the forwardly located bars of Figs. 5 and 6.

Fig. 8 is a plan view of a modied form of the support.

In that embodiment of the invention shown in the drawings, identical fixtures I each comprise a at plate llhaving flanges I2 extending hori zontally from its upper and lower edges.` For the double type support, the fixtures I0 arevprof vided with flanges I2 of sufficient width to accommodate two pivot pins i3, but obviously the flanges I2 may be made to accommodate one or more pivot pins I3. On each of the pin's' Ii there is pivotally mounted between the flanges; I2, I2 of the fixture Il), a short arm I4 consist'-` ing of a piece of metal curved at I and bent to-y form an end portion I6 substantially at right angles to the adjacent portion. The metal of the arm I4 is also bent longitudinally along each side to form retaining members I'l which are spaced from and parallel to the flat part of the arm I4, and to form means I8 for mounting the arm I4 on a pivot pin I3. Normally the end portion I6 of the arm bears against the'plate II of the fixture I 0, whereby the movement of the arm in one direction is limited.

The fixtures are adapted to be xedly secured to a wall or frame by nailing or screwing the apertured plates II thereto. Said fixtures are used in pairs and may be used interchangeably as either right or left members, and spaced apart as required.

'I'he arms I4 of a pair of iixtures cooperate to support bars or rods which may extend from one fixture to the other continuously or have their free ends spaced apart. In Figs. 1, 2 and 3, the curtain supporting bars extend across the window or door, from one fixture I0 to another. Said bars are identical with the exception that the ends of the outermost bar (that is, the one farthest removed from the window or wall), en' gaging the fixture arms I4, are longer than the corresponding part of the inner bar.

The curtain supporting bar comprises two members, each consisting of a bent bar I9 having fix-ed at one end a flat loop 20, and a straight bar 2l having xed at one end a fiat loop 22. The bar 9 extends through the loop 22on the bar 2| and the bar 2| extends through the loop on the bar I9, whereby said bars are slidable on each other and their length is adjustable. The inclined portion 23 of each bar I9 is adapted to be inserted in an arm I4, between the arm body and retaining member I1, to be frictionally held therein. The free ends of the bars 2|, 2l, adjusted to meet about midway between the fixtures I0, are detachably connected by a locking device 24 shown in perspective in Fig. 4. It comprises a fiat plate having anges 25, 25 on its edges and retaining tongues 26, 2B indented at 21, 2l. The locking device 24 serves as a connection for the proximate 'free ends of the bars 2|, 2|, and the projections 21 engage apertures 28, 28, in said bars 2|, 2|, as shown in Fig. 3, to hold the members together frictionally.

The curtain supporting bars consisting of the members I9 to 24, inclusive, are identical, as explained, excepting as to the length of the portions 23 and 23 of the respective inner and outer bars.

In Figs. 5 and 6, the inner curtain supporting bar is identical with the corresponding bar of Figs. l to 3, but the outer .of the curtain supporting bars has been modified by removing the locking device 24 and shortening the length of the members by sliding the bars 2| toward their respective supporting iixtures. A spear or ornament 29 having a retaining member 30, as shown in Fig. 7, may be slipped over the free ends of the bars 2|, 2|, as shown in Figs. 5 and 6. When thus altered the outer curtain supporting members may be swung about the pivot point I3 as shown at the right hand side of Fig. 6.

The structure shown in Fig. 8 is similar to that described excepting that the curtain supporting bars are curved instead of straight. The parts corresponding to members I9 to 22 inclusive have been designated 3| to 34, respectively, and the curved locking devices 35.

One of the advantages of my construction is the fact that the curtain supporting bars may be used as desired, to extend continuously across the space between the xtures or separated to provide side supports, and the latter are separately adjustable as to length. Thus it is unnecessary to remove either the curtains or supporting bars when it is desired to wash windows. The curtain, if one piece, may be moved to one side of the locking device 24 or 35, the end of one bar 2| or 33 removed from the locking device, and the supporting member carrying the curtain may be swung about the pivot I3 and out of the way. There is enough spring or play in the bars to permit disengagement of the whole bar from one of the arms |4, allowing the bar to swing at its opposite end, to carry the curtain away from thc window. If the curtain is a two panel curtain, it is only necessary to disengage the locking de vice 24 or 35 from one of the bars 2| or 33 and to swing both halves of the supporting means and curtains out of the way.

The adjusting means permits independent and equal or unequal extension and contraction of the bar portions at opposite sides of the locking devices 24 or 35.

The shape of the part l5 of the arm |4, bearing on the fixture plate prevents unintended movement of the arm 4 toward the wall or window.

Changes may be made in details of construction Without departing from the scope of my invention.

I claim:

A curtain rod comprising two identical members each consisting of a pair of bars telescopically connected together, a locking device detachably engaging the proximate ends of said identical members when they are in aligned, end abutting relationship, the opposite outer free ends of said identical members being adapted for insertion, by movement .of said bars longitudinally of each other, in pivotally mounted supports, each of said members being independently swingable with its pivoted support when said locking means is disengaged, and said rod as a Whole, with the locking device in place, being withdrawable from one of said supports by telescoping one of said bars relatively to another, whereby said rod as a whole is swingable with one of said pivoted supports.
