United States Patent LOCK FOR SLIDABLY MOUNTED CLOSURES Kenneth M. Christensen, Hartford City, Ind., assignor to Overhead Door Corporation, Hartford City, Ind.
Filed Dec. s, 1958, Ser. No. 778,797
13 Claims. (CI. 20-19 This invention relates to a. lock for slidable closures such, for example, as upwardly acting doors.
The main objects of this invention are:
First, to provide a lock for slidable closures which is adapted to clampingly hold the closure against a sill or other abutment and which also acts during the initial opening movement of the lock to thrust the closure away from the sill or other abutment.
Second, to provide a lock structure which is adjustable to adapt to substantial variations in structure and in installing conditions.
Third, to provide a lock structure having these advantages which is relatively simple in its parts and the parts are capable of withstanding relatively heavy strains.
Objects relating to details and economies of this invention will appear from the description to follow. The invention is defined and pointed out in the claims.
A preferred embodiment of the invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:
Fig. l is a fragmentary front elevational view of an upwardly acting door structure, the door structure shown mainly conventionally, embodying my invention.
Fig. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary view mainly in vertical section on a line corresponding to line 22 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is a fragmentary view partially in vertical section on a line corresponding to line 33 of Fig. 2.
Fig. 4 is a fragmentary perspective view illustrating the parts with the bolt in partially actuated position.
Fig. 5 is a fragmentary view in section on a line corresponding to line 5-5 of Fig. l with the bolt in keeper engaging lock position.
Fig. 6 is a fragmentary perspective view illustrating the parts with the bolt in retracted position.
Fig. 7 is a fragmentary view corresponding to that of Fig. 3 with the parts in partially opened position.
Fig. 8 is a fragmentary vertical section illustrating a modified form or embodiment of my invention.
In the accompanying drawing I have illustrated my invention as embodied in an upwardly acting door of the sectional type in which 1 represents a door frame, 2 the sill thereof and 3, 4, 5 and 6' the door sections which are hingedly connected at their adjacent edges. The guiding means or tracks for the door sections are not shown as they form no part of my invention. The bottom section 6 is provided with a resilient sill engaging seal 7 on its bottom edge.
In the embodiment illustrated the bolt assembly of Figs. 1 to 6 inclusive comprises a plate-like supporting member 8 provided with a forwardly projecting flange 9 on its upper edge, a stop 10 at one end and a handle lock designated generally by the numeral 11 at its other end. The supporting member 8 is provided with a centrally disposed pivot 12. The bolt support member 13 is provided with a laterally projecting handle 14 which may be supportedly engaged with the stop 10 when the bolt is in retracted position as shown in Fig. 6, or engaged with the lock 11. as shown in Figs. 1 and 5.
HCQ
The bolt support member 13 has a transverse slot-like recess 15 extending from the edge thereof opposite that which the handle extends, the recess extending inwardly beyond the pivot 12, as is clearly shown in Fig. 3. The bolt 16 is disposed with its inner end within the recess and pivotally connected to the support member by the pivot 17 which is disposed radially of the pivot member 12.
The bolt 16 is provided with a threaded stem portion '18 at its outer end with which the keeper engaging" jaw 19 is threadably engaged for adjustment. The locking nut 20 secures the jaw in its adjusted position and this, in effect, results in a bolt that can, be lengthened or shortened to meet varying conditions.
in the embodiment illustrated the bolt has an offset 21 therein adapted to receive the pivot 12 when the bolt is in fully locked position in which position the bolt support member 12, the pivotal connection 17 for the bolt to the bolt support member and the pivot are in approximate alignment, the pivot 17 however being slightly beyond the dead center. This arrangement of parts also results in a powerful cam-like clamping stress on the, bolt as it is swung to keeper engaging position. The pivot 12 of the support member serves, as a fulcrum for the bolt to swing it to keeper engaging position, the edge 22 of the recess serves as a thrust member. for
swinging the bolt to and holding itin fully retracted position, as is illustrated in Fig. 6.
The keeper 23 is adapted to be positioned on a sill or other abutment against which the closure is seated when closed and has an elongated recess 24 therein adapted to receive the end of the bolt as it swings to and from keep-er engaging position, see Figs. 3 and 4. The keeper is provided with an inwardly facing lug 25 with which the jaw of the bolt engages when the bolt is in locked position. The bottom of the recess in the keeper is desirably curved. With this arrangement of parts when the support member is manipulated to engage the jaw the handle is swung from retracted position, as shown in Fig. 6, to the right which swings the bolt into the keeper, as shown in Fig. 4, and continuing movement in the same direction positions the bolt. jaw under the keeper and forces it into clamping engagement with the jaw of the keeper as shown in Fig. 3.
In the embodiment of my invention illustrated the opening movement of the lock or bolt not only disengages the bolt from the keeper, but acts to impart an opening thrust to the, door or closure member. That is illustrated in Fig. 7 in which the bolt. is shown in thrust engagement with the bottom of the keeper, and it will be noted that the bolt pivot is positioned so that further opening movement imparts. a thrust upon the bolt resulting. in an opening movement of the closure through the manipulation of the lever 14.
The parts are desirably made of sufficient strength so that a very secure clamping action, results when the parts are swung to locking position and opening thrust results when the parts are swung from locking position, both movements being illustrated inthev drawings. The clamping sealing feature is a highly desirable one for many installations, for example, such as illustrated in the vertically movable door in a truck. The door is sealed at the bottom against the entrance of dirt and water, and the opening thrust frees the door from the jamb or sill and fractures or breaks the door away from ice in event there should be an accumulation of ice.
The flange 9 may be conveniently used as a hand hold for the opening and closing of the door. Further, the door may be locked in closed position if desired. The clamping function of the bolt is important as pointed out as it is practically impossible for an operator to manually push the door into. sealing engagement with handle 31.
3 theksill such as results from the clamping action of the loc The bolt is made adjustable in length so that it may be adjusted to accommodate considerable variations in installation and in the seal member 7 with the bolt in engaged position as shown in Figs. 1 and 3, the handle may, if desired, be engaged with the locking means Id. The locking means 11 desirably includes the padlock 31, see Fig. 5.
In the modification shown in Fig. 7 the bolt support member 26 is mounted in the hollow closure member 27 which is provided with a jaw support pivot member 28 having a handle 29 on one end provided with a socket 30 at the other end adapted to receive the removable The bolt structure and its mounting on its support member is substantially the same as described.
The flange 9 overhangs the other parts with the excep- =tion of the handle and constitutes a guard therefor.
While my invention is capable of use, and is desirable for use in a wide variety of relations, it is particularly well adapted for embodiment with the upwardly acting doors of trucks and trailers insuring, in effect, an air sealing engagement thereof with the sill and substantially reduces noise.
I have not illustrated other embodiments or adaptations of my invention which I contemplate as it is believed this disclosure will enable those skilled in the art to embody or adapt my invention as may be desired.
Having thus described the invention what is claimed as new and desired to secure by Letters Patent is:
