Description

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
LEVI S. ENOS, OF ALMOND, NEW YORK.
PORTABLE DOOR-FASTENING.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 55,477, dated June 12, 1866.
To alt whom it may concern:
Be it known Jthat I,Lnv1 S. ENo's, of Almond, in the county of Allegany and State of New York, have invented a newl and Improved Portable Door-Fastening; and I do hereby declare that the following is afull, clear, and exact description thereof', which will enable those skilled in the art to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which- Figure lis a side view ot' my invention with the screw and gimlet projecting from the case; Fig. 2, a longitudinal section of the same, taken in the line a; Fig. l.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.
This invention relates to a new and iniproved portable or temporary fastening for doors, designed for the use of travelers and others, in order that they may in a moment of time apply a fastening to their chamber-door, which will be an additional safeguard to a permanent one thereon, or prove sufficient in case the door is not provided with a lock or fastening.
rIhe object of the invention is to obtain a fastening for the purpose specified, which may be constructed at a small cost and conveniently carried in the pocket and readily adjusted and applied to any door.
A represents a case of oblong quadrilateral forni, three sides of which may be struck up out of a piece of sheet metal at one operation. The remaining side, a, is a cover or lid, one end of which is connected by a hinge, Z), to one end of the body of the case.
a may be of heavier metal than the body of the case, and to its inner surface there is attached, by a pivot, c, a screw, B, said screw being allowed to turn on its pivot c, so that it may be This side or lid adjusted out from the case A at right angles with it at one side, as shown in black in Fig. l, or turned and adjusted within the case, as shown in red in the same gure, said screw, when turned outward from the case being held in position by a notch, a', in the side of the latter, the screw being turned when the lid a is raised or partially or wholly opened.
By means of this screw and case a fastening or button is obtained fora door, the screw being the pivot for the case A, which is the button, said screw being screwed into the door-frame at such a Vpoint that the case may project over the edge of the door.
In case of screwing the screw, B into hard wood, it would facilitate the work by previonsly boring a hole to receive the screw, and for this purpose I attach, by a pivot, d, a ginilet, C, to the lid a, near the end opposite to that where the lid is attached to the case by the hinge b. This gimlet, like the screw B, may be turned out from the case at one end of it, as shown in black in Fig. l, and held in position by a notch, e, in the end of the body of the case A, and also turned within the case when not required for use, as shown in red in the same gure.
The device may be constructed at a small cost, and of such a size that it maybe carried in the pocket without any inconvenience whatever.
Having thus described my invention, I claim. as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- The portable door-fastening, constructed as herein described, as a new article of manufacture.
