ALFRED J. SCHULZ ATTORNEYS.

United States Patent 3,159,994 DOQR LATCH AND LKMZK Alfred J. Schulz, Wauwatosa, Wis, assignor to S-B Manufacturing Company, Wauwatosa, Wis., a partnership of Wisconsin Filed Mar. 1, 1962, Ser. No. 176,65il 11 illaims. (Cl. 7t3145) This invention relates to a door latch and lock. The embodiment disclosed is of a type commonly used in connection with screen and storm door sash, the mechanism being on, rather than in, the stile.

The general organization is well known. Mounting frames in the form of shallow housings applied to opposite faces of the door stile are connected together through the stile. The inner and outer door handles or knobs are rotatably mounted on these frames and connected together by a spindle extending through the stile. The latching mechanism comprises a bolt mounted in the interior handle and engaged with a strike on the door frame to be released by oscillation of the handle. Locking is achieved by a slide within the housing frameon which the interior handle is mounted and which, when engaged with the handle or its spindle, prevents rotation thereof in a direction to release its bolt from engagement with the strike. When the slide is thus engaged, the spindle can not be operated and the door is locked. The present invention is concerned with means whereby a key may be used, preferably in a cylinder incorporated in the exterior handle of the door to cam aside the slide which locks the spindle against rotation, thereby permitting either handle to be used to disengage the bolt from the strike and permit the door to be opened.

Spring means in the mounting frame on the exterior of the door stile restores the spindle and the interior and exterior handles to their normally centered positions following each operation, thus assuring that the bolt will be in a position to latch the door by engaging the strike when the door closes. mitted to the spindle through interacting cam surfaces on the spring follower and the spindle. The present invention is specifically concerned with an arrangement whereby additional cams are provided within the limited space available within the mounting frame to displace the locking slide and, additionally, to restore to its normally centered position an inner spindle controlled by the key, following each operation of the key to release the lock.

In the drawings:

FIG. 1 is a view in perspective of the inner mounting frame and inside door handle assembly.

FIG. 2 is a view in perspective of theouter mounting frame and outside door handle assembly.

FIG. 3 is a view in perspective showing relatively separated component parts of the inner and outer spindle and cams.

IG. 4 is a view on a larger scale through a door stile and showing the mounted latch assembly in section on the line 4-4 of FIG. 5.

FIG. 5 is a view fragmentarily illustrating the stile and jamb in section and showing the latch mechanism as viewed on the line 5-5 of FIG. 4.

FIG. 6 is a detail view in cross section on the line 66 of FIG. 4.

The bias of the spring is transcated at ill-16 in FIG. 4, the lock slide being in locking position.

FIG. 11 is a view similar to FIG. 10 showing the key operated spindle and can oscillated to force the lock slide to its retracted position, portions being broken away on the line indicated at Ill-11 in FIG. 4.

FIG. 12 is a View similar to FIG. 10 and FIG. 11 showing the exterior door handle oscillated to release the latch bolt from the strike, such oscillation being permitted by the retracted position of the lock slide.

FIG. 13 is a detail view taken in section on the line 1.

13-13 of FIG. 10.

FIG. 14 is a detail View taken in section on the line 14-44 of FIG. 12.

FIG. 15 is a fragmentary detail view in the same plane as FIG. 11 showing a modified key operable. cam, which is illustrated in full lines in its retracted position.

The mounting frame 16 at the inside face of the stile 18 and the mounting frame 29 of the outside face of the stile are connected together by bolts 22 in the usual way. The respective-frames have the form of shallow pans having marginal flanges 24 and 26, respectively, which abut the faces of the stile 13. In addition, the frame 16 has an inner closure 28 to confine the parts hereinafter face 42 of the bolt cams the bolt past the jamb and the bolt springs back to the position of FIG. 5 as soon as the jamb is cleared, thereby latching the door in its closed position. The bolt is'released from the strike 38 by rotating the handle 32 in either direction in boss 29.

The bearing portion 36 of the handle has integral arcuate lugs 44 and 46 which project axially as best shown in FIG. 3. They pass through corresponding openings 48 in head flange 54 of a tubular spindle 56 and are upset or riveted as shown at 50 and 52 in FIGS. 11 and 12 to assemble the handle with the head flange, the assembly being best illustrated in FIG. 5. A counterbore 53 in the boss 29 recieives the head flange 54 to conline the spindle 56 and handle 32 for rotation coaxially respecting the mounting housing and to center the spindle in the opening 60 bored through the door stile 18 for the spindle.

Externally of the door the hub 62 of doorknob64 is similarly journaled in the boss 66 of the external mounting frame or casing Ztl. Lugs 68 projecting axially from hub 62 are headed to engage a retaining disk 70 as best shown in FIG. 4 to retain the hub rotatably in the bearing provided by boss 66. The reduced extremity 74 of the tubular spindle 56 is squared and fits an opening 76 of corresponding square cross section in the hub 62,

whereby the knob 64 on the outside of the door and the handle 32 on the inside are connected to rotate in unison.

It will be apparent that the bolt 34 may be released from strike 38 by rotating the handle and the knob and the connecting spindle 56 in either direction from the normally centered position in which the parts are illustrated in FIGS. 1, 4, 5, l0, and 11. This normally centered position is maintained by providing spindle 56 integrally with a cam 81; having lobes at 82 and 84 which are nearly diametrically opposite as shown in FIG. 10. These lobes engage the ends 85, 88 of a bifurcated cam follower slide 9% which are subject to the bias of the compression spring 92. The slide 99 is guided on ribs 91 of casing 16 which provide a Way engaged by flanges 93 of the slide as best shown in FIG. 13. The ends 94,

Patented Dec. 8, 1964 I i is as follows:

within the hub 62.

96 of the slide embrace a spring seat 98 upon which the spring 92 is seated. If the handle assembly is rotated in either direction from the position shown inEIG. 10, one or the other of its cams S2or S4'will engage the complementary end 86 or 38 of the slide 90 to displace the slide in a direction which compresses spring 92 as shown in FIG. 12. Upon release of the handle assembly, the reaction of spring 92 will return the handle assembly to the position of FIGS. 10,4 and 5. As indicated in FIG. 5, this is a position of the handle assembly in which the door is latched when shut, the bolt 34 carried by the internal handle 32 being vengaged with strike 38.

To lock the doorgit is only necessary to retain the handle assembly in the position of FIG. 5. To this end, cam St} has a notch at 100 dimensioned to receive a locking lug 192 of lock slide 1434. FIG. .10 shows the slide 104 advanced into locking engagement with cam 86. The slide is reciprocably guided between the side flanges 24 of casing 15 and has a thumbpiece 1% that projects through an appropriate slot in the casing member 16 as best shown in FIG. 4 and FIG. 14. Theplate 2-3 which serves as a closure for the inner side or" the casing 16 has a protuberance at 108 engaged by the convolution 110 of leaf spring 111 fitted-into slide 184, the arrange ment being such that the, spring snaps across the protuberance 108 when the slide is reciprocaied. Thus the spring, in cooperation with projection 108, serves as a yieldable detent tending to hold the slide 104 in the posi-.

tion to which it has been adjusted;

The current invention contemplates key operated means for enabling a person on the. outside of the door to move lock slide 104 from the locked position of FIG. 10 to the unlocked position of FIG. 12 in order that the door may be.opened by manipulating the handle assembly. A person onthe inside of the door needs no key, since the thumbpiece 1% is available to him as a means of retracting the lock slide.

In the preferred practice of the invention, the key 112 controls a lock cylinder 114 fitted for limited rotation in the hub 62 of handle 64. Shoulders 116 and 118 witl1- in the hub 62 are engaged by complementary shoulders 120 and 122 which are formed at a lesser angular spacing on the cylinder 114 to limit the rotation of the cylinder. An axial slot 124 receives the tumblers 126 of cylinder114 as shown in FIG.4. When the key 112 is inserted, the tumblers are retracted in known manner to free the cylinder for rotation. There is one tumbler 123 which is pressed outwardly by spring 13% into an internalperipheral groove 132 by means of locking the cylinder Once inserted, the cylinder cannot be Withdrawn, as tumbler 123 is not key-retractable.

A non-circular socket 134m cylinder 114 receives an The key operated mechanism the lug from the notch 1G0 and thereby freeing the handle for rotation to unlatch the door.

It will be understood that the mere insertion of the key in this type of lock is sufficient to retract the tumblers, leaving the cylinder 114 free for rotation. Thereupon the rotation of the cylinder unlocks the handle assembly. However, the key cannot be withdrawn from the cylinder until the cylinder is restored to a position in which the tumblers register with the slot 124 in the barrel which, in this instance, is the hub 62 of the knob or handle 64 at the outside of the door. So that conscious attention on the part of the operator will not be required .to restore the cylinder to a position such that the key may be withdrawn, the centering of the cylinder is effected by the .bias of spring 92 which also serves to center the handle assembly when the handle assembly has been displaced. Thus the spring 92 will center either the locking mechanism or the latching mechanism or both, whenever the operator releases the handle or the key following an unlocking'or unlatching manipulation.

Another reason for returning the key operated cam from its advanced position is to prevent it from interfering with the subsequentmanipulation of the lock slide 164 into locking position. As will be seen, the lobe 144 of 02.111149 is in a position, in FIG. 11, in which it is aligned between the locking lug 162 and the spindle 136 so that no amount ofpressure on the slide 104 will return the cam14ii out of the path of lug 102.

In cases in which elimination of this difiiculty is more important than thereturn .of the key to centered posi- 1449 to a range between the retracted position shown in full lines and the advanced position shown in dotted lines. It will be observed that even in the advanced position of clockwise rotation of the key operated cam 1400, the

. lobe 144% will not reach dead center and the next manual inner spindle 136 of complementary cross section. This spindle 136 passes through an opening 138 of correspond ing non-circular form in a cam 140 which is separately illustrated in FIG. 3 and which is retained on the end of .the inner spindle 136 by heading the spindle at 142 (see FIGS. 4 and 5). I

In order to provide adequate bearing surface for the cam lobes 82, 34 of the outer spindle 56, the outer spindle cam 80 is made in two component parts Sit and 80 which are spaced slightly as best shown inFIG. 3 to receive the cam 140 between them. When the handle assembly is used to rotate the spindle 5s and cam 81?, the cam 140 goes with cam 80 as is shown in dotted lines in FIG. 12. However, if the key 112 is used to rotate the inner spindle 136, the cam 140 moves independently of cam as shown in FIG. 11. In clockwise operation, one

lobe 142 engages the end 86 of the slide 941 to compress spring 92 while the other lobe 144 of the key operated cam engages the locking lug 102 on lock slide 164 to push the lock slide to its retracted position, disengaging advance of the slide 104 readily pushes the key operated cam back to its retracted full line position, without requiring any spring bias to accomplish this objective.
