SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 433,306, dated July 29, 1890.
Application filed April 15, 1890. Serial No. 347,998. (No model.)
To aZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, ABRAHAM PU GSLEY, of Jamestown, in the county of Newport and State of Rhode Island, have invented a new and Improved Attachment for Operating Blind-Slats, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
My invention relates to devices for operating and fastening blind-slats; and the object of my invention is to provide a simple and efficient device by means of which the slats of a blind may be simultaneously operated and by means of which the blind-slats may be fastened.
To this end my invention consists incertain features of construction and combinations of parts, which will be hereinafter fully described, and specifically pointed out in the claims.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
Figure 1 is an inside view of a blind closed in the window-frame and provided with my attachment. Fig. 2 is a vertical section of the same on the line 41:00 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a broken inside view of the blind as applied to a window-frame, showing the slats locked in position; and Fig. 4- is a detailed view of the operating-latch.
The blind A is of ordinary construction, and is hinged to the outside of the building in the usual manner, so as to close within the window-frame B. A lever to is pivoted to and near one end of the central rail of the blind, so as to extend from about its center nearly to the inner edge of the blind. The outer end of the lever to is provided with a laterally-extending pin a, from which depends a hook a which engages a staple in the upper end of the vertical rod D, said rod being stapled to the blind-slats C in the usual manner, said slats being pivoted in the blindstiles. The pin a is also provided with an upwardlyextending hook a which may be hooked to a staple of the upper slat-rod, so that the upper and lower slats may be simultaneously operated. The opposite end of the lever a is provided with an upwardly-extend ing lug a to engage the latch e as hereinafter described. The free end of the lever (it moves in the keeper b, which is attached to the stile of the blind A, and the movement of the lever is thereby limited. Fixed to the under side of the lever a is a fiat spring (I, which extends through the keeper 1), and which by its pressure upon the lower member of the keeper tends to hold the inner end of the lever to in an elevated position, as shown in Fig. 1, thus holding the blind-slats 0 open, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2.
A horizontal shaft 6 extends through a portion of the frame 13, but may be attached to the outside of the frame, said shaft having its inner end provided with a crank e, which may be moved in a recess B of the frame 13, and having its outer end formed into an angular latch 6 adapted to engage the fianged end of the lever to, so that by turningthe shaft the latch may be made to depress the lever and elevate the slats C. The shaft e is also provided with a spiral spring f, which encircles the shaft, one end of the spring being fixed to the shaft and the other end being fixed to the adjacent window-frame, so that the tendency of the spring will be to hold the latch e in an elevated position,so as not to interfere with the opening of the blind-slats. By turning the crank 6 into a vertical position within the recess B of the frame the latch 6 will be forced downward, thus moving the outer end of the lever a to the lower portion of the keeper b and raising the outer end of the lever a and closing the slats O to the position shown in dotted lines in Fig. 2. Near the outer edge of the recess 13' is a hole It extending into the frame B, in which fits a pin g, which is supported from the frame by a cord g, so that it may be always convenient for use. \Vhen the crank e is in a vertical position within the recess B and the slats (J are closed in the manner described the pin g may be inserted in the hole 71, thus holding the crank e in posit-ion and locking the slats C. It will thus be seen that when the slats are locked they cannot be operated from the outside of the building, and they willthuseffectively prevent any person from peeking between the slats, and will also prevent a person from inserting an implement to unlock the blind or window.
edge of the outer end of lever a and limited in its downward and rearward movement by the said upturned end a and an operatinghandle a for said shaft, substantially as setvv I 5 forth.
Ward-projecting latch e resting on the upper r 2. The con1binati0n,with the blind-slat-operating lever having an, upturned inner end and a spring throwing said end upward, of a shaft having a downward-projecting latch at its inner end resting on the upper edge of the said lever'in front of its upturned end, and a spring f on the shaft holding saidlatch raised, substantially as set forth.
