Description

Patented Jan. 1 -1, 1949 VISOR Fred L. Jacobs, Grosse Pointe, Mich, assignor to F. L. Jacobs 00., Detroit, Mich., a corporation of Michigan Application February 23, 1946, Serial No. 649,688

2 Claims.

This invention relates generally to visors or glare shields for motor vehicles and more particularly to adjustably mounted glare shields.

It is an object of the present invention to provide a new and improved glare shield and support therefor of a character such that the shield may be tilted about its axis or adjusted therealong and frictionally held in various adjusted positions.

Another object of the present invention is to provide a shield supported on a rod for adjustment about or along the rod and to provide inexpensively for frictionally holding the rod in various positions of adjustment.

Another object of the invention is to provide a combined and inexpensive supporting and friction holding means for a glare shield.

Other objects of the invention will become apparent from the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing in Which- Figure 1 is an elevational view of a glare shield embodying features of the present invention;

Fig. 2 is an enlarged sectional view of the shield taken along the line 22 of Fig. 1, and

Fig. 3 is a view similar to Fig. 2 showing the shield in a difierent position.

Referring to the drawing by characters of reference, the present visor or glare shield is of general rectangular shape havin along one longitudinal edge a tube Ill which slidably and rotatably receives a supporting rod H which may be suitably mounted to extend horizontally above a motor vehicle windshield. Preferably, the tube II! is formed of a rectangular sheet of resilient metal, and border portions along the opposite longitudinal edges are preferably bent outwardly, back to back as flanges l2 and welded together to provide a double thickness of material to which the shield I3 is suitably attached or secured as by means of wire staples I3.

The rod His preferably of circular section and is provided with a longitudinal groove i l. The tube 10 is of circular section from the flange l2 to the center line as clearly shown in Figs. 2 and 3. Beyond the center line, the tube section is slightly flared outwardly for purposes about to be described.

The tube III is provided with one or more indentations 15 which form internal projections adapted to be received by the groove II. The indentations l5 are struck in the tube preferably at the points therealong located diametrically opposite the flange ii. The internal projections thus formed are of slightly different radius than the groove l4, and the fit of the tube on the rod 2 is such that the tube is slidable along the rod, but not loose thereon, when the parts are in their Fig. 2 position.

The increased radius of the tube It) outwardly of the center line provides a slight clearance which permits the shield to be swung about the longitudinal axis of the rod II and provides for frictionally holding the shield in the desired position of adjustment. For example, in Fig. 3 the shield has been moved about the longitudinal axis .of the rod H with the result that the indented portions l5 of the tube ID are pushed outwardly by the cylindrical surface of the rod II and the tube is slightly flexed thus increasing friction between the rod and tube to hold the shield frictionally in the adjusted position.

When the shield is moved back to its Fig. 2 position, the indented tube position will flex and the tube will return to its normal shape. It will be seen that the cooperating groove and indentations constitute simple and inexpensive means providing for longitudinal and radial adjustments of the visor and that such adjustments may be easily and readily made as desired.

While I have shown and described my invention in detail it is to be understood that the same is to be limited only by the appended claims for many changes may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention.

I claim:

1. In a sun visor for motor vehicles, a cylin-- drical support rod having a longitudinal groove throughout a substantial portion of its length, a shield member having a tube portion of resilient material adapted to engage said rod in telescoping relation, said tube portion being provided with a plurality of indentations disposed longitudinally along its length, said indentations being adapted to engage said groove in one angular position of said shield member thereby to facilitate sliding of said tube on said rod and to frictionally engage said rod in other angular positions of said shield member whereby said shield member is held in various angularly adjusted positions.

2. In a sun visor, a cylindrical support rod having a longitudinal groove throughout a substantial portion of its length, a shield member, means for 3 4 member thereby to facilitate sliding of said tube on said rod and to frictionally engage said rod UNITED STATES PATENTS in other angular positions of said shield member Number Name Date whereby said shield member is held in various 2,201,348 Roberts May 21, 1940 angularly adjusted positions. 5 2, 1 h nh it M y 21. 1 40 FRED L.
