In this particular structure the means constructed in accordance with this invenfree edge of the door I9 closes against a strip 23 tion operatively attached thereto, which overlaps the free edge of the door when Figure 6 is a similar view illustrating another the door is in a closed position. u manner of using my improved holding means, The overlapping portion of the strip 23 is provided-'with a here 24 which is formed therein from the forward side thereof. A magnet II is secured in the bore 24 with the executive face thereof ush with the forward face of the strip B 23. The armature 25 is secured to the inner face of the door I9 by means of the screws 26 or other suitable fastening means whereby the door when closed will position the armature 25 in operative relation to the poles of the magnet II.
It will be seen that the armature 25 will be attracted by the magnet Il and that the door will be yieldably held in a closed`A position with suilcient force to prevent its being unintentionally opened.
In Figure there is shownl a portion of a frame member 21 in which is mounted a door 28 which is shown in a closed position. Themember 21 is provided with a bore 29 in which there is mounted a magnet II which may be of the type'illustrated 90 in Figure 1 but which asshown is provided with a smooth exterior surface. In this'adaptation of the invention the magnet I I is secured in the bore 23 by means ofthe screw I8 with the executive face of the magnet flush with the face of the member 21.
'I'he door 28 is provided on the contacting edge thereof with an armature 38 which is formed of a plurality of layers of magnetically permeable material. vThe layers 30 are secured to the edge of the door 28 where the armature will be in an operative rposition to the magnet II when the door is closedby means of the screw 3l. The armature 30 is thus constructed of a plurality of layers so thatone vor more layers may be selectively employed to regulate the force with which the door is held in a closed position.
In Figure 6 there is shown a frame member 21 and a door 28 with one magnet I I positioned in the member 21 and the other magnet I I positioned in the door. The magnets II are thus arranged with each pole of each magnet presented to the opposite pole of the other magnet, thus providing a strong magnetic pull which will normally hold the door in 'a closed position.
In Figure 'I there is shown a portion of a metallic structure 32 having a metal door 33. A holding member 34 is secured to the structure 32 by means of the screws 35 or any suitable means. The holding member 34 is constructed of rubber, Bakelite, 50 brass or any suitable material.
The holder is provided with a suitable bore 36 in which is snugly received' a permanent magnet IIa. The holding member 34 thus presents the magnet to the edge ofthe door 33 which 55 forms an armature for the magnet and holds the ldoor in a closed position.
InvFigures 9 and 10 I have shown a bar magnet I Ia having a kerf I2a in the forward face thereof.
The magnet IIa is provided with an axial bore 80 I1a in which a'screW or othergfastening member may be inserted. The bar magnet Ila may be provided with screw threads I5 and a screw driver blade inserted in the kerf I2a to operatively position it in a bore:
In the particular adaptation of the invention shown, the bore I1a is enlarged at the forward end thereof to receive the head of a screw or other fastening means and the bore I1a is enlarged adjacent the rear end thereof to form a shoulder 31 which may be engaged by a tool to pull the magnet Ila from a bore in which it is mounted.
While I have illustrated and described an improved form of horseshoe magnet adapted to be threaded into a bore, it will be understood that the magnet I I may be made of any suitable, cross sectional shape adapted to be fitted in a seat formed in either the closure member or the frame member.
It will thus be seen that I have provided a door holding means which may be quickly and conveniently applied to a door, door frame or other part of a door structure which will not project in the door opening or present any protruding parts and which will be very eiilcient in yieldably` holding a door in a closed position.
Having thus illustrated my invention and de-A scribed the same in detail, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. In a permanent magnet, a cylindrical magnetized body, external screw threads on said body, said threads being interrupted at circumferentially spaced intervals to provide edges for cutting a thread in the wall of a bore.
2. In a permanent magnet, a cylindrical magnetized body, external screw .threads being interrupted at circumferentially spaced intervals to provide edges for cutting a thread in the wall of a bore, said body provided with a central bore for receiving a securing screw. A
3. In a permanent magnet, a cylindrical magnetized body, external screw threads being interrupted at circumferentially spaced intervals to provide edges for cutting a thread in the wall of a bore, said body provided with a central bore for receiving a securing screw; the central bore being enlarged at both ends to provide shoulders i whereby the securing screw may be wholly recessed into the magnet'and whereby hook means may be engaged with' the inner shoulder to facilitate removal of the magnet from a recess. 4. In a permanent magnet, a cylindrical, magnetized body, external screw threads on said body, said body provided with a central bore for receiving a securing screw, the central bore being enlarged'at both ends to provide shoulders where- 4 by the securing screw may be wholly recessed in said body and whereby hook means may be engaged with the inner shoulder to facilitate removal of the magnet from a recess. f
