UNITED STATES PATENT (')EEICE JOHN OWEN SMITH, OF SAVANNAH, GEORGIA, ASSIGNOR TO HIMSELF AND JAMES CLEMENOE, OF SAME PLACE.

WINDOW-GUARD.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 250,592, dated December 6, 1881. Application filed September 3, 1881. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, JOHN OWEN SMITH,- of

Savannah,in the county of Chatham and State of Georgia, have invented a new and Improved Window-Guard and I do hereby declare that the followingis a full, clear, and exact descripwood, provided with lugs at the top, adapted to enter seats formed in plates in the sides of the windowframe, and provided with tongues of metal at the bottom, projecting at right angles to the frame inwardly, and adapted to enter horizontal holes in the window-sill and be lockedv by set-screws or pins inside, as hereinafter more fully described.

In the drawings, A represents a window or door frame, and B is the guard. This latter, as shown,is composed of a strong rectangular metal frame filled in with an open grating or other suitable metal net-work, and provided upon each of its sides, near its upper end,with lugs a (t, and having at its bottom end two in- Wardly-projectin g rigid metal tongues, b b, projectiug from the guard at right angles to its plane. Near the upper ends of the side frames of the window are arranged plates c, which are let in so that their faces opposing each other are flush with the sides of the windowframe, and these plates are notched at their edges with notches running inwardly and then upwardly, which notches are adapted to receive the lugs a a of the guard. In the sills C of the window-frame there are also horizontal holes d, running partially or wholly through the same, which receive the tongues b. These tongues have perforations in their ends, which, when the tongues are in place in the sill, regi ister with vertical holes e in the window-sill, through which screws, bolts, or pins g may then be passed to lock the tongues in the sill.

To apply the guard, its lugs a. a are first entered into the notches, as shown in dotted lines in Fig. 2, the guard then slipped up until its tongues b are in line with the holes in the sill, and the tongues then forced in and secured by the bolts or pins.

In making use of my invention the guard may be made to extend the full length of the window, or only part way, as may be desired, and it may be made either in the form of an open metal grating or an impert'orate shutter. When applied to store-windows, also, the tongues-may pass all the way through the sill and be secured by a pin, bolt, or key upon the inside edge of the sill, instead of bya bolt passing vertically through the latter.

Among the advantages of myinvention muy be mentioned the fact that they are easily and quickly applied, and may as readily be taken down for washing the windows, 85e., and they present, moreover, an effectual barrier to the ei'orts of burglars, for it will be seen that not only are the fastenin gs all inside, but the screws which hold in the plates c are covered by the frame of the guard itself, so that they cannot be gotten at to take off the plates.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new isl. The combination, with a wi ndow-frame having lug-seats at its upper ends and horizontal holes through its sill, of a windowguard havinglugs at its upper end and adapted to enter said seats, and rigid tongues projecting at right angles from its lower end, adapted to enter the holes in the sill, and means for securing the same, substantially as described.

2. The combination, with a window-frame having plates c, provided with undercut lugseats and horizontal and vertical holes through its sill, of the Window-guard having lugs a a near the top and rigid tongues b b at the bottom, projecting at right angles, as described, and fastening bolts, screws, or pins g, substantially as and for the purpose described.
