Description

Sept. 2, 1958 K. H. ERICKSON PULL Filed May 28, 1955 I I I I I I I I I I I I 1 M VEZ 10''! O United States Patent PULL Karl H. Erickson, Rockford, 111., assignor to Arnerock Corporation, Rockford, 111., a corporation of Illinois Application May 28, 1956, Serial No. 587,588

1 Claim. (Cl. 16-125) This invention relates to a pull such as may be used on a drawer or a door and, more particularly, to a pull which includes a handle portion and one or more legs projecting outwardly from the handle, the pull being mounted on the drawer by a bolt passing through the drawer and threaded into a hole in the end of the leg. In some instances, there are bases on the ends of the legs and, for ornamental purposes, these bases may be provided with a finish different from the finish of the pull proper.

The principal object of the invention is to provide a new and improved pull of the above character in which the base may be attached easily to the leg and in which the base is always properly located relative to the leg.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent from the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of a pull embodying the novel features of the present invention.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged sectional view taken along the line 2-2 in Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is an enlarged fragmentary sectional view taken along the line 33 in Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a transverse sectional view of a base.

Fig. 5 is a plan view of a base.

As shown in the drawings for purposes of illustration,

the invention is embodied in a pull which may be used on the drawer 10 (Fig. 3) of an article of furniture and which comprises a handle portion 11 and one or more legs 12 rigid with the handleand adapted to be secured to the gawer. Herein, an elongated handle portion is employe and there are two legs, one projecting forwardly from each end portion of the handle. The handle and the legs may be cast integrally as a single piece 13. For ornamental purposes, the pull is provided with bases 14 on the ends of the legs. The bases are somewhat larger than the legs, although here they are similar in shape, and they may be made with a finish contrasting with the finish of the piece 13. As an example, the piece 13 may be black to simulate wrought iron and the bases 14 may have a bright brass finish. In this instance, the difference in finish is obtained by making the bases separate from the piece 13.

To secure the pull to the drawer 10, a threaded hole 15 (Fig. 3) is formed in each leg 12 and opens through the end face 16 of the leg and a bolt 17 projects through a hole 18 in the drawer and is threaded into the hole 15. By tightening the bolts 17, the bases 14 are clamped against the outside of the drawer'and the pull is secured firmly to the drawer.

In accordance with the present invention, the bases 14 are constructed in a novel manner so that they may be made as separate parts and still be fastened easily to the legs 12 in the proper relation to the latter. In this Way, the pull may be displayed in its entirety and, further, the mounting of the pull is simplified because the bases do not have to be handled independently and they always are located correctly relative to the legs in the final mounting. To these ends, the bases, which are generally flat, are formed with a recess 19 which has generally the same contour as the end faces 16 of the legs 12 to receive the leg ends and yieldable prongs 20 project up from each base and into a hole in the leg to engage frictionally the wall of this hole and hold the base in place.

In the present instance, the bases 14 are made of sheet metal and each is stamped to form a rib 21 extending around the periphery of the base. Thus, the rib leaves a depressed central portionwhich constitutes the recess 19. The latter is substantially the same size and shape as the end faces 16 so that, when the end of a leg is placed in the recess, the rib prevents the base from turning relative to the leg and holds the two in the desired position.

Preferably, the prongs 20 project into the same hole 15 as that into which the bolt 17 is threaded and, for this purpose, the outer end 22 of the hole is enlarged to provide space for the prongs around the bolt. An aperture 23 (Figs. 4 and 5) is punched through the recess 19 in alinement with the hole 15 to permit the bolt to pass through the base and into the hole. The prongs 20 are struck up from the base and are angularly spaced around the aperture 23, there being, in this instance, four inverted V-shaped prongs. To insure the desired frictional engagement between the prongs and the associated leg 12, the enlarged end portion 22 of the hole 15 is tapered slightly so that, as the prongs are inserted, they engage the wall of this end portion and are bent inwardly. Due to the resiliency of the material from which the bases are formed, the prongs yieldably press against this wall and thereby hold the base on the leg.

It will be observed that, with the arrangement described above, the bases 14 are attached to the legs 12 by a simple automatically.

I claim as my invention:

A pull comprising a rigid member having a'handle portion and a leg projecting outwardly from said handle portion and having an end face of predetermined contour, a sheet metal base having a peripheral rib defining a recess of the same contour as said end face to receive the end of said leg, said leg having a hole opening through said end face and tapered inwardly whereby the diameter of the hole at the outer end is greater than the diameter at the inner end, and a plurality of yieldable prongs struck up from said base in said recess and forming a cylinder generally alined with said hole, said prongs being tapered and the diameter of said cylinder being less than said outer end diameter and greater than said inner end diameter whereby said prongs project into the hole and yield to frictionally engage the tapered wall thereof and hold the base on the end of said leg.
