PRESSER FOQT DOOR-OPENER.

, SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 283,770, dated August 28, 1883.

Application filed June 30,1833. (No model.) I

To ail whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, GEORGE L. GEIGER, of Philadelphia, in the county of Philadelphia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Foot- Iress Door-Openers; and Ido hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, which will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to letters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

Figure 1 is a vertical section showing the parts in place. Fig. 2 is a side view of parts of the device. Figs. 3, 4, and 5 are details. Fig. 6 is a modification.

This invention relates to a device for opening a door by means of the foot; and it 0011- sists in the construction hereinafter set forth and claimed.

In the annexed drawings, the letter A designates a door, provided with the usual lockspindle, B. To this spindle is secured, at one face of the lock, the disk 0, having the central enlargements, c 0, and a notch, 0 in its pcriphery, the said enlargement a being cut off, forming the shoulder c", the notch 0 being oif from said shoulder, as shown. Passing down one face of the door, either on the outside or, preferably, in achannel, is a rod, D, having at its upper end the hook (1, adapted to the notch a This rod D is in two parts, d (1", having eyes dd, each part passing through the eye of the other, thus forming a sliding joint, the action of which is limited by a stop, (1, on the lower part, (P, which strikes against the eye d of the upper part, (1, as the two parts tend to separate. At its lower end this rod D has an eye, cl, into which is fitted the upper end, 6, of a forked standard, E; or the rod D may be continued intact to form such standard. This standard E has two legs, 0 0', connected by the crossbar 6, each standard passing along a face of the door to or near the bottom. Secured to the door, at the lower ends of these standards, are plates F G, having a space behind them, such plates having the vertical slots f f coming in from the bottom, as shown.

Arranged at these plates are the presser-feet or operating-blocks H K, having the guiderods h k, which pass through the slots f f and F G, thus forming an elastic connection between the door and the sliding presser-feet. The pressenfoot II has a recess in the top, in which is placed a swivel-plate, N, the presserfoot having preferably rounded corners.

In placing these devices upon a door the pressenfoot H, with the swivel-plate N, is to be placed upon the inside, or on the side toward which the door swings, and where a pull is required to open the door, the block K being placed on the other side. vice the foot is pressed upon the block K, the arm is bearing on the nut pulling the standard E and rod D down. The hook (Z, en gaging the notch 0", turns the disk 0. and spindle B, releasing the door. fices to open it. By this action the spring M is elongated beyond its usual position, and as soon as the pressure is taken from the block K the spring retracts, drawing the block up to its former position ready, again for action. If

the door is to be opened from the other side, pressure is in like manner applied to the presser-i'oot II, which, through the leg 6*, operates the spindle B, as before described. When the door is to be opened fromthis side andthe latch is released, as described, a pullof the foot on the block H is only required to open the door, as the operator willhave to stand to one side to allow the door to swing. The swivel-plateN allows the foot to turn naturally as the door swings past.

If desirable, instead of using a swivel-plate, or to insure the certain opening of the door when approached from the side of the presserfoot H, a spring, P, maybe used. This spring gaging the rear end, 1", of this catch It is a lever, I00

S, the other end, 8, of which is secured to the leg 0* of the standard E. hen the door is These arms h 7: have eyes 75 70, 55

In using this de- 70 A shove suf- 75 closed the spring is pressed into engagement with the catch R, the beveled ends passing'and held. When the presser-foot H is operated the movement of the leg 6 causes the lever S 5 to withdraw the catch R from the spring P,

allowing the latter to push against the jamb,

throwing the door open.

When it is desired to open the door in the usual way by turning the knob, it can be done with out'affecting the devices below, as the j oint in the rod D allows the parts to slip past each other without operating the standard E.

By making the enlargement c with the I shoulders 0 the spindle can be turned in either 15 direction, there being plenty of room for the rod D to move sidewise. Fig. 6 shows a crank, T, which may be used in the place of the disk 0.

Having described my invention, what I claim 1. In a device for operatinga door with the foot, the lock-spindle, and the latch actuated by said spindle, .in combination with a sliding presser-foot and their-connecting devices, as set forth. 7

2. In a device for operating a door with the foot, the lock-spindle, and the latch actuated by said spindle, in combination with a sliding presser-foot, means for connecting them, and a spring for returning the parts into their 0 normal position, as set forth. I

3. The spindle B, notched disk 0, rod D, and presser-foot K, as set forth.

4. The spindle B, notched disk 0, rod D, presser-foot K, and spring M, as set forth.

5. I, The presser-foot H, in combination with the swivel-plate N, as set forth.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my 'own I affiX mysignature in presence of two witnesses. I
