Description

Patented Oct. 8, 1940 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 3 Claims.
This invention relates to improvements in devices for holding curtains or draperies when drawn or tied back away from the Window.
The principal object of the invention is to provide a tie-back for curtains and draperies, and the present disclosure is designed to provide such a device which will eliminate the use of nails, screws and the like, thereby preventing the marring of the window casing caused by the holes in the woodwork each time the curtains are changed.
Another object of the invention is to provide a device of this character having a shank which is suitably secured in a vacuum cup for attachment to the window casing, and a rubber clamping head adapted to be inserted on the shank for holding the curtain between the respective parts.
Another object of the invention is to provide a device of this character which may be easily attached to and detached from the window casing.
A still further object of the invention is to provide a device of this character which is durable in construction, efficient in operation and because of its extreme simplicity, will be inexpensive to manufacture.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent during the course of the following description.
With the foregoing in view the invention resides in the novel subject matter hereinafter described and claimed, the description being supplemented by the accompanying drawing in which:
Figure 1 is an enlarged sectional view of the complete curtain holder and associated parts constructed in accordance with the principles of my invention.
Figure 2 is a front elevation of the vacuum cup supporting structure.
Figure 3 is a front elevation of the clamping head.
Figure 4 is a side elevation of a modified form of the curtain holder.
In the drawing wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown a preferred embodiment of the invention the numeral 4 designates a shank which is provided at one end with an annular flange 5, and at its opposite end is provided with a sharp point 6. The anged end 5 of the shank is suitably imbedded in a vacuum cup 1, which vacuum cup is adapted to be mounted on the window casing (not shown) The intermediate portion of the shank 4 is provided with an annular bulge or enlargement 8 for the purpose more f fully hereinafter described.
In the preferred form of construction Imake use of a clamping head designated by the numeral 9 which is preferably constructed of rubber. The head 9 is formed with an integral laterally extendingknob or handle l0 to provide 5 means for inserting and removing the'head 9 from the shank 4.
The modification shown in Figure 4 of the drawing contains all the advantages above described but shows a slightly modied form of l0 constructing the curtain holder by providing one end of the shank 4 with a threaded extension Il for securing the holder to a. fixed support.
In the operation of the device the shank 4 is imbedded in they vacuum cup l which cup is 15 mounted on the window casing when in use. The clamping head 9 is then placed on the shank by forcing the former on the pointed end 6 of the shank as clearly illustrated in Figure 1 of the drawing. Due to the bulged portion 8 of the 20 shank the clamping head 9 is held firmly in place, and will not become dislodged, due to the pressure exerted by the frictional engagement of the rubber body 9 with the bulge or enlargement 8 as described. The curtains or draperies to be 25 tied back are of course, placed on the shank 4 between the vacuum cup and the clamping head 9. The curtains may be thrown over the shank if desired, or may be inserted between the respective parts, in either event, the clamping head 9 30 bearing against the curtains, and the vacuum cup will hold the same in proper position.
By the use of the modification shown in Figure 4, the threaded extension Il is secured on the window casing, after which the curtains or dra- 35 peries are placed on the shank, and the clamping head 9 then inserted on the pointed end of the shank thereby providing an effective tie-back for curtains and the like.
From the foregoing it will be seen that I have 40 provided a novel and unique device for holding curtains and portires in a drawn or tied back position away from a window, and one which may be operated with a minimum of effort.
It is thought that persons skilled in the art to which the invention relates will be able to obtain a clear understanding of the invention after considering the drawing in connection with the description. Therefore, a more lengthy descrip- 50 tion is regarded as unnecessary. Since excellent results are obtainable from the details disclosed, they are preferably followed. However, within the scope of the invention as claimed, numerous modifications may of course, be made.
I claim: 1. A curtain holder of the class described comprising a shank, said shank having a pointed end, and an annular flange at its opposite end, the intermediate portion of said shank having a bulged enlargement. a solid rubber clampingl head removably secured on the pointed end of said-shank said head having an integral laterally extending knob, said enlargement being adapted to coact with said clamping head for frictionally holding the latter on said shank, and means for mounting said ilange to a fixed support.
2. A curtain holder of the character described comprising, in combination, a vacuum cup, an impaling prong, one end of said .prong being embedded in said vacuum cup, and a rubber knob impaled on said prong, and the intermediate portion of said prong having means for frictionally holding said knob thereon in the manner and for the purpose set forth.
3. In a curtain holder, and in combination with a vacuum cup, an elongated shank having a flange at one end embedded in said vacuum cup, and said shank having a tapered end, a resilient clamping head releasably secured on said shank, and shiftable laterally with respect to said cup for holding a curtain therebetween, and said shank having a bulbous formation intermediate its ends for co-action with the clamping head for holding the latter fixedly on said shank.
