Oct. 11, 1955 V M. P. GUSSACK DRAWER STOP Filed Aug. 5, 1953 I III! INVENTOR fi/tozzfi5assack FIG.2

United States Patent DRAWER STOP Milton P. Gussack, Flushing, N. Y., assignor to Grant Pulley & Hardware Corporation, Flushing, N. Y., a corporation Application August 5, 1953, Serial No. 372,581

2 Claims. (Cl. 16-82) This invention relates to drawer stops.

Broadly, it is an object of the invention to provide a drawer stop which is inexpensive and simple to operate.

More particularly, it is an object of the invention to provide a right angle drawer stop which is attached to the inside back of the drawer and which is positioned in two positions, namely, the stop position and the clearing position.

For a fuller understanding of the nature and objects of the invention, reference is had to the following detailed description, in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which:

Fig. 1 is a vertical cross sectional view of the upper part of a cabinet and a drawer showing the position of the drawer stop in the stop position and the drawer in closed position.

Fig. 2 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view of the upper front part of the cabinet and drawer showing the drawer in open position with the drawer stop in its upper or stop position.

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view similar to Fig. 2 showing the drawer in open position with the drawer stop in its lower or clearing position.

Fig. 4 is an enlarged perspective view of the drawer stop attached to the inside back of the drawer, the drawer stop being shown in the stop position.

Fig. 5 is a similar view to that shown in Fig. 4 with the drawer stop shown in its lower or clearing position.

Fig. 6 is a perspective view of a modified drawer stop showing L-shaped slots.

Referring to the drawing, numeral 10 represents the top of a cabinet which has a back 11 and a front upper rail 12, which is part of the cabinet frame, the other portions of the cabinet need not be shown to illustrate the operation of the drawer stop. Within the drawer opening 13 a drawer 14 is shown with a drawer front 15, side 16 and back 17. The back face of the front is generally higher than the upper rail 12 and acts as a stop for the drawer in its closed position, as shown in Fig. 1. The back and sides of the drawer 14 are generally slightly lower than the bottom edge 18 of the front upper rail 12.

Attached to the central part of the inside back 17 at its upper part is a drawer stop 19 which comprises a right angle member preferably formed of one piece of metal having an upright member 20, a horizontal member 21 and an upwardly bent flange or stop piece 22.

2,720,000 Patented Oct. 11, 1955 The upright member 20 has two J-shaped slots 23 pierced through the metal through which two screws 24, preferably round headed, are passed. Screws 24 are not tightened so that the drawer stop 19 can be easily moved with the fingers of the hand from its upper position, as shown in Fig. 4 to its lower position, as shown in Fig. 5.

In attaching the drawer stop 19 to the back 17, the horizontal member 21 of the drawer stop 19 is positioned in its upper position on a level with the top 25 of the back 17 so that the upwardly bent flange or stop piece 22 will strike the back of the front rail 12 of the cabinet frame when the drawer is extended to its fully open position, as shown in Fig. 2. In this or the upper position of the drawer stop, mounting screws 24 are passed and applied through the upper end of the lower are 26 of the J slots 23, however, the screws 24 are not tightened to permit the drawer stop to be moved with the fingers of the hand to its lower position, as shown in Fig. 5.

If it is desired to withdraw the drawer 14 completely from the cabinet, the drawer is extended until the stop piece 22 strikes the back of the front rail 12 of the cabinet frame. The fingers of the hand can then easily reach the drawer stop 19 and readily lift it slightly moving it to the right and then permit it to drop to its lower position when the screws 24 enter the upright portions of the J slots 23 and reach the upper end of such slots, as shown in Figs. 3 and 5. In this lower position, the top of the upwardly bent flange or stop piece 22 clears the bottom edge 18 of the front rail 12, as shown in Fig. 3, so that the drawer can be easily removed from the cabinet.

Although I have shown the J slots 23 in reverse position, such slots may be punched in the correct J formation or position without changing the operation of the drawer stop. Likewise, the slots may be L-shaped instead of J-shaped.

It is obvious that various changes and modifications may be made in the details of construction and arrangements of parts without departing from the general spirit of the invention.

I claim:

1. A drawer stop of the character described comprising a single piece of metal having an upright member, a horizontal member and an upwardly bent stop member, a pair of like J-shaped slots, one above the other, in said upright member for passing screws therethrough permitting said stop to be moved to upper and lower positions.

2. A drawer stop of the character described comprising a single piece of metal having an upright member, a horizontal member and an upwardly bent stop member, a pair of like L-shaped slots, one above the other, in said upright member for passing screws therethrough permitting said stop to be moved to upper and lower positions.
