Description

F. G. SZAGER DRAWER PULL Filed sept. 5, 1945 I uvelltor Patented Febo 7, 1950 UNITED STATES PATENTE'v DRAWER PULL Frank G. Szager, Inglewood, Calif.

Application September 5, 1945, Serial No.

The present invention relates to certain novel' and useful improvements in so-called drawer pulls, and the purpose of the invention is to structurally, functionally, and otherwise improve upon pulls now known to me.

There are, of course, many different types of handles, knobs, and grips used for drawer pulls. The present invention relates to a type in which the main body part is in the form of a receptacle, this sunken and mounted in the face of the drawer, and being provided with a projectible and retractible grip constituting the pull proper.

More specifically, novelty is predicated upon a receptacle forming a receiving and protective well for the projectible and retractible pull or gripping means. The latter is of special construction and is hingedly mounted between its ends with means at one end providing finger-grips, and means at the opposite ends forming a conveniently accessible actuator for said nger-grips.

Other objects, features and advantages will become more readily apparent from the following description of the accompanying illustrative drawings.

In the drawings, wherein like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the views:

Figure 1 is a front elevation of a conventional drawer equipped with a so-called pull constructed in accordance with the principles of the present invention.

Figure 2 is an enlarged fragmentary detail view, partly in section and partly in elevation, this taken on the plane of the line 2-2 of Figure 1, looking in the direction of the arrows, and showing the pull in its projected or extended position in readiness for use.

Figure 3 is a top plan View with a portion broken away and shown in section to show the method of fastening.

Figure 4 is an enlarged detail view of the pull unit by itself.

As will be hereinafter seen novelty is thought to reside in the combination of the open front elongated receptacle with a hinge pin across its front serving as a mount for the knuckle-equipped portion of the retractible and projeetable pull. Then, too, novelty is predicated upon the pull unit per se depicted in Fig. 4 of the drawings and hereinafter specically described.

In the drawings the reference character A designates a frame to accommodate the drawer B, the latter being equipped with the improved pull.

As before indicated the invention comprises an attaching device 5 characterized by an elongated zolaims. (c1. 16-115) receptacle B having a marginal facing flange 1. This provides the aforementioned well or receptacle and it is secured in place by wood screws 8. The gripping unit or pull is denoted by the numeral 9. This as shown in Figure 4 is formed from a single piece of metal which is bent intermediate its ends to dene a pair of duplicate diverging limbs or nger-grips iii. These are provided adjacent their outer ends with indentations I! to facilitate surety of grip and convenience of operation. The intermediate portion of the unit is fashioned into a tubular attaching hinge or knuckle I2 and the remaining portion I3 is formed into a attened actuator. A hinge and attaching pin I4 serves to secure the unit 9 swingably in the well in the manner shown. It follows that the entire unit 9 can be swung flush into the well of the receptacle 5 in which position it is completely out-of-the-way. When it is desired to bring it into use pressure is brought to bear on the actuator i3 which swings the nger-grip Ic out. Then, the iinger-grips are grasped in obvious manner by placing the iingers in the anti-slipping indentations l I.

The device is of utmost simplicity and is compact and convenient, takes up little or no space, especially in places where space is limited and needed. In spite of its simplicity it provides an adequate pull affording the user a rm and re liable grip. It lends itself adaptable for use in drawers and tool boxes and elsewhere where space is at a premium.

Changes in shape, size, materials and rearrangement of details and parts may be resorted to in actual practice, so long as they do not depart from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the appending claims, as is well understood.

I claim:

l. A drawer pull of the class shown and de scribed comprising a shallow elongated receptacle closed at its back and open at its front, a hinge pin transversely bridging said open front and spaced a predetermined distance from said back and also located centrally with respect to the opposite transverse end portions of said re ccptacle, a drawer pull provided adjacent one end portion with a knuckle, the latter hingedly mounted on said pin, said one end portion, on one side of said knuckle, constituting a ringertrippable actuator and the length of the latter being less than the depth of said receptacle, the opposite end portion of said pull embodying limbs projecting from the other side of said knuckle, said limbs being of lengths equal to each other but less than the distances between the hinge pin and transverse ends of said, receptacle in orderfto Vfold without hindrance into said receptacle on either side of said pin, and said limbs being provided with depressions constituting fingen-holds.

2. As vafnevv article of manufacture, a stamped sheet material drawer pull comprising a, pair of duplicate limbs disposed alongside one another and integrally connected to each other at corresponding ends and provided with outstanding semi-circular bends, the latter being opposite one another and aligned to combinedly denne a cylindrical hinge knuckle, the end portions between said connected ends and knuckle-being in contact and forming a nger-trippable actuator on one side of said knuckle, the portionsrof said limbs, on the other side of said krilickle, being spread into spaced divergent relationshipyhaving their ends disconnected and portions.' inwardly of the disconnected ends, provided with concave-convex indentations, the convex portions of which are in contact, said indentations dening lingerholds,

FRANK G. SZAGER.
