Dec. 29, 1970 SOUTH RAIN GUTTER AND MOUNTING MEANS THEREFOR Filed May 5, 1969 R O N E V m Donald ASouth AT'I'ORNI- YY.

United States Patent 3,550,381 RAIN GUTTER AND MOUNTING MEANS THEREFOR Donald A. South, 998 Tibbetts-Wick Road, Girard, Ohio 44420 Filed May 5, 1969, Ser. No. 821,605 Int. Cl. E02b 9/04; E04d 13/00 U.S. C]. 61-15 3 Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION (1) Field of the invention This invention relates to rain gutters of the type normally employed to catch rain Water along the edge of roofs.

(2) Description of the prior art Prior structures of this type usually mount the actual gutter on elongated nails which are driven through openings in the upper edges of the channel defining the gutter and into the structure of the building holding the roof so as to support the gutter. This invention eliminates the need of the long nails heretofore used and hides the mounting means of the gutter so that a neater, more efficient installation is obtained.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION A rain gutter and a mounting means therefor comprising a channel shaped gutter member and a mounting plate, the mounting plate having down turned and up turned flanges on its upper and lower edges respectively and the gutter having one side thereof of flat configuration with a U shaped down turned flange on its upper edge and a U shaped down turned flange on its lower edge whereby the flanges on the flat portion of the gutter can be engaged in the flanges on the mounting plate after the same has been secured to a building and whereby the gutter is sturdily and securely mounted in desired relation. A perforated guard is then snapped into position and is held by the interengaging flanges to prevent leaves and the like from entering the open top of the gutter.

DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a portion of a building adjacent an eave thereof and showing a mounting plate secured thereto.

FIG. 2 is a perspective view of a rain gutter having a configuration registrable with matching configurations on the mounting plate of FIG. 1 so as to be held thereby.

FIG. 3 is a perspective view of a section of perforated metal sheet having configurations along one of its edges enabling it to be secured in the mounting and holding configurations of the mounting plate and gutter of FIGS. 1 and 2.

FIG. 4 is an enlarged cross sectional elevation showing the mounting plate and the gutter and perforated guard in assembled position on a building.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT By referring to FIG. 1 of the drawings it will be seen that a mounting plate 10 has been disclosed which has an up turned flange 11 extending longitudinally of its lower edge and a down turned flange 12 extending longitudinally of its upper edge. Spaced openings 13 provide means for securing the mounting plate 10 to a supporting structure such as a wooden member 14 of a building having an eave or roof edge 15 extending outwardly therefrom. The mounting plate 10 is positioned in angled relation to the roof edge 15 so that gravity flow will move rain water along the gutter in the usual manner.

In FIG. 2 of the drawings a rain gutter is illustrated as defining a channel shape having a vertically flat back wall 16, a projecting bottom section 17 and a front wall 18. The flat back wall 16 of the rain gutter has a down turned U shaped flange 19 formed longitudinally of its lower edge and which U shaped flange is a continuation of the flat back wall 16 and the bottom 17. The upper edge of the flat back wall 16 has a down turned U shaped flange 20 which is spaced with respect to the back wall 16.

The bottom 17 of the rain gutter has a rigidizing inverted V shaped configuration 21 extending longitudinally thereof and midway between the flange 19 of the back wall 16 and the front wall 18 of the gutter. The lower edge of the front wall 18 of the gutter has a stepped configuration 22 which imparts rigidity to the structure and improves its appearance and the upper portion of the front wall 18 has an angular section 23 and an in turned flange 24, the inner edge of which has a U shaped down turned flange 25 formed longitudinally thereof.

By referring now to FIG. 3 of the drawings it will be seen that a perforated plate 26 has been disclosed which includes a plurality of perforations 27. The plate 26 has a down turned longitudinally extending flange 28 On the forward edge thereof and a down turned U shaped flange extending longitudinally of the rear edge thereof.

The mounting plate 10 of FIG. 1, the rain gutter of FIG. 2 and the perforated plate of FIG. 3 are assembled into a protected rain receiving gutter assembly as best shown in FIG. 4 of the drawings.

By referring thereto it will be seen that a building having a wall 30 and a roof edge 31 having extending shingles 32 thereon is disclosed, the wall 30 having a facing member 33 to which the mounting plate 10 is secured as by fasteners 34 which are positioned through the apertures 13 heretofore described. The mounting plate 10 thus becomes part of the wall 30 as it is secured in appropriate position on the face of the member 33 as will be understood by those skilled in the art. The gutter is then secured to the mounting plate by positioning the upper edge of the back wall 16 which is indicated at 16A in FIG. 4 of the drawings in the down turned flange 12 of the mounting plate 10 and moving the same upwardly therein until the down turned U shaped flange 19 on the lower edge of the back wall 16 of the gutter clears the flange 11 of the mounting plate 10 and is enabled to move thereover and drop into the area between the flange 11 and the mounting plate 10. At such time the gutter back wall 16 is moved downwardly sufficiently to establish the proper registration of the U shaped flange 19 of the gutter in the area between the flange 11 and the mounting plate 10 and at the same time the upper edge 16A of the back wall 16 of the gutter still remains in registry with the area between the mounting plate 10 and the down turned flange 12 thereof as seen in FIG. 4 of the drawings. In such position the gutter is firmly held against the mounting plate 10 and it will therefore assume the angular relation of the 3 mounting plate to insure proper drainage as will be understood by those skilled in the art.

In order to protect the gutter from receiving leaves and more importantly to hold the flange 24 in uniformly spaced relation to the mounting plate, 10, the perforated sheet 26 is then installed with its down turned flange 28 registering in the U shaped flange 25 on the in turned flange 24 of the front wall 18 of the gutter.

It will thus be seen that the front wall 18 is held in fixed relation to the mounting plate 10 by reason of the perforated plate 26 and its locking engagement with the assembly and it will be observed that the U shaped flange 29 on the perforated plate 26 is so formed that the longitudinal edge thereof registers beneath the down turned flange 12 of the mounting plate thus securing the as sembly in desired relation.

Although but one embodiment of the present invention has been illustrated and described, it will be apparent to those skilled in the art that the various changes and modifications may be made therein without departing from the spirit of the invention.

What is claimed is:

1. A rain gutter and means for mounting the same, said gutter consisting of an elongated channel shaped member having spaced front and back walls, a longitudinally extending flange on the lower edge of said back wall, an upwardly opening U shaped flange on the upper longitudinal edge of said back wall, a secondary upwardly opening U shaped flange on the longitudinal edge of said front wall, said means for mounting said gutter comprising an elongated plate, oppositely disposed U shaped flanges on the longitudinal edges of said plate, said flanges adapted to receive and hold said flanged back wall of said gutter, a member having down turned edges positioned transversely of said gutter with said down turned edges engaged in said upwardly opening U shaped flanges on said front and back walls.

2. The rain gutter and means for mounting the same set forth in claim 1 and wherein the overall height of said mounting plate is greater than the overall height of said back wall.

3. The rain gutter and mounting means of claim 1 and wherein the member having down turned edges is perforated.
