WEATHER-STRIP.

SPEGIFICATIONforming part of Letters Patent No. 590,644, dated September 28, 1897. Application filed January 25, 1897, Serial No. 620,629. (No model.)

To all whom it 'n ay concern:

Be it known that I, JAMES H. ELLER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Canton, in the county of Stark and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Weather-Strips {and I do hereby de clare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the annexed drawings, making a part of this specification, and to the figures of reference marked thereon, in which- Figure 1 is a perspective View showing the strip properly attached to a door. Fig. 2 is a transverse section through line a: :20, Fig. 1, showing a vertical section of a portion of .a door. Fig. 3 is an end view showing a portion of a door in section and also the sill. Fig. 4 is a detached view of one of the adjustable end connections for the weather-strip and also showing its hinge-plate detached. Fig. 5 is a detached view of the hinge-plate and the center strengthening-plate. Fig. 6 is a view showing a portion of the hinged weather-strip. Fig. 7 is a viewshowing a portion of the door, showing the same open, and illustrating the weather-strip connected thereto.

The present invention has relation to weather-strips; and it consists in thedifferout parts and combination of parts hereinafter described, and particularly pointed in the claims.

The object of the present invention is to provide a weather-strip that can be adjusted to fit different-width doors and at the same time one that is easily operated and attached.

In the accompanying drawings, 1 represents the door, to the lower portion of which is attached the cap 2, which cap is preferably formed of metal and is corrugated substantially as illustrated in the drawings. To the door 1 are attached the hinge-sections 3, which hinge-sections are located below the cap 2. To the hinge-sections 3 are pivotally connected the adjustable ends 4, the inner ends or portions of which are provided with the integral corrugated portions 5, which corrugations conform in shape and size with the metal strip 6. I

For the purpose of holding the ends 4: at the desired points of adjustment upon the strip pressed firmly against the face of the strip 6,?

thereby securely holding the ends 4 upon the strip and at the desired point. For the purpose of preventing the ends at from striking squarely against the door-sill 8 at the time the door is closed the ends 4: are provided with the bevel portion 9, which bevel portion causes the end tobe liftedup, carrying with it the hinge-strip 6. For the purpose of strengthening the strip 6 and at the same time increasing the weight of the strip, so as to insure its fall by gravity and so as to close the space between thebottom of the door and the sill, the metal plate 10 is provided, which metal plate is connected to the weather-strip 6 by means of the tangs 11, which tangs are passed through the strip and clenched, so as to securely connect the plate 10 to and with the strip (5. For the purpose of providing a stop the hinge-sections 3 are provided with the projections 12, which projections are bent or curved outward, as illustrated in Fig. 3, and are for the purpose of holding the weather strip 6, together with its different parts, in an elevated position when the door is open, or, in other words, to prevent the strip from dropping to a vertical position when the door is turned so as to clear it from the door-sill S.

For the purpose of providing adjustment for the downward movementof the weatherstrip proper after the door has been swung to clear it from the door-sill the projections 12 may be bent to or from the door, and for this purpose the hinge portion 3, together with the integral projection'lQ, should be formed of malleable iron or other like material. By this arrangement I am enabled to so adjust the drop of the weather-strip to bring said Weather-strip into proper position to pass over the door-sill during the time the door is being closed. The top or upper end of the plate 10 is hinged to the plate 13, which plate is properly-connected to the door 1.

Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Let- 4, the hinge-sections 3, provided with the bent or curved projections 12, and the hinged center plate 10, connected to the Weather-strip, and a cap located above the Weather-strip,substantially as and for the purpose specified.

In testimony that I claim the above I have hereunto subscribed my name in the presence of two witnesses.

JAMES II. ELLER.
