UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

THOMAS VOGEL, OF IOWA PARK, TEXAS.

DOOR-SADDLE.

SPEGIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 586,467, dated July 13, 1897.

Application filed ara 17, 1897.

To all whom, it way concern:

Be it known that LTHoMAs Voenna citizen of the United States, residing at Iowa Park, in the county of Wichita and State of Texas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Door-Saddles; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to door-saddles and it consists, essentially, of a longitudinal and cross-grooved arrangement of parts coacting with inclined surfaces and shields to cause a perfect drainage of water therefrom without interference of the wind or other influences brought to bear thereon.

The invention further consists in a removable top which can be readily lifted from the saddle proper for the purpose of cleaning and other manipulation.

The object of the present invention is to simplify the construction of saddles as much as possible within the scope of usefulness and strength.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a sectional perspective view of the improved saddle, showing a portion of a door resting thereover. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a saddle, showing the parts disconnected and a removable top inverted.

Referring to the drawings, wherein like numerals of reference are employed to indicate corresponding parts in both views, the numeral l designates a saddle which is of the usual shape and size and provided on its inner upper side with a recess 2, extending from an inner vertical wall 3 and providing means for the reception of a removable top 4. The bottom of the recess 2 is inclined downwardly from the rear vertical wall toward the outer or front edge of the saddle and has at opposite ends thereof heads 5 with recesses 6 therein to receive tongues 7 on the opposite ends of the removable top 4. The inner parts of said heads 5 are arranged at a distance from the verticalwall 8, or, in other words, grooves are formed between the rear portions of said heads and the said vertical wall 3, the ends of the said grooves on opposite sides of the outerportion being inclined upwardly toward the top of the saddle in order that dirt or other material Serial No. 627,944. (No model.)

which may congregate in the grooves or in the recess in the top side of the saddle may be readily removed. WVhen the removable top 4 is placed in position on the saddle proper, the rear wall thereof, with the vertical wall 3, continues the grooves formed at each end between the rear parts of the heads and the said vertical wall, as will be readily understood. The outer portions of the heads are beveled and extended slightly beyond the saddle proper at the front end by the formation of a recess 8 for a purpose which will be more fully hereinafter set forth. The removable top 4, in addition to the tongues 7 thereon, as heretofore set forth, has its under side formed with a series of cross-grooves 9, arranged at regular intervals, and depending over the front edge of the said removable top is a flange or eave 10, which is rigidly held against the front edge of said top against breakage or injury by under braces 11, having their lower ends in planes flush with the lower projecting edge of said flange or eave. The said braces are interposed at regular intervals between the cross-grooves 9 to obstruct the formation of a continuous passage way under the said flange or eave, it being seen that the two outermost braces close the ends and thereby prevent longitudinal passage of air under the eave or flange and thereby obviate the influence of the air on the water that may be flowing over the inclined portion "of the recess in the top of the saddle through the grooves 9. The flange or eave projects sufficiently beyond and below the plane of the grooves 9, and the force of the wind against the front of the saddle is prevented from having its effect upon the water flowing through the grooves 9.

When the removable top is placed in position on the saddle, the outer face of the flange or eave lies flush with the similarly-beveled faces of the heads at the opposite ends of the saddle, and the tongues 7 snugly fit within the recess in the said heads, thereby presenting a neat appearance and at the same time having a convenient construction. The removable top 4 is adapted to be raised from the saddle at any time desired, so that the several parts can be readily cleaned and dirt or other material that may collect therein be removed.

The essential feature of the invention, it

will be observed, resides in the formation of protected grooves to permit the water to flow freely from the inner longitudinal groove which is formed when the parts are assembled to the exterior of the saddle. 7

Many changes in the minor details of c011- struction of the saddle might be made and substituted for those shown and described without in the least departing from the nature or spirit of the invention.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is 1. A door-saddle consisting of two parts, the lower part being recessed to removably receive the other, and having opposite end heads with front beveled surfaces extending slightly beyond the front termination of the recessed portion, a removable top having a series of transversely-arranged grooves on the underside thereof, and a projecting flange or eave applied to'the beveled surfaces of the heads and covering the front portions of said grooves, the lower termination of said flange or eave being in a plane parallel with the bottom of the said lower part, substantially as described.

2. In a door-saddle, the combination of a saddle proper having a recess in the upper side thereof with an inclined surface and heads at the opposite ends, a removable top mounted in the said recess and heads and havin g grooves extending transversely across the under side of the same, a flange or eave projecting over the front portions of the said grooves, and braces interposed between the said grooves at the front portion of the under part of the removable top, substantially as and for the purposes specified.

3. The combination with a door-saddle having a rear vertical Wall to form one portion of a longitudinal groove, of a removable top having transversely-arranged grooves on the under side thereof communicating with the said longitudinal groove, a flange or eave projectin g over the front portions of the said grooves and braces attached to the said flange or cave and removable top at the under side thereof and interposed between the said grooves, substantially as and for the purposes described.

at. In a door-saddle, the combination of the saddle proper having an inner longitudinallydisposed groove, a removable top provided with transversely-arranged grooves in the under side thereof, an eave or flange projecting downwardly over the front portions of said transversely-arranged grooves, and braces in.- terposed at regular intervals between the said grooves and secured to the under portion of the flange to obviate the formation of a longitudinal passage, substantially as and for the purposes described.

In testimony whereof I have signed this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
