FASTENING DEVICE FOR EDGEWISE-MOVING CLOSURES AND TIE-IE LIKIL Specification of. Letters Patent.

Application filed July 11, 1904. Serial N0. 216,120.

Patented Aug. 9, 1910.

To all whom it may concern:

Beit known that I, DANIEL SOHUYLER, a

citizen of the United States, residing at Bridgeport, in the county of Fairfield and State of Connecticut, have invented new and useful Fastening Devices for Edgewise-Moving Closures and the Like, of which the following is a specification.

Obj ects of this invention are to'provide a neat, attractive, unobtrusive, cheap, simple, easily applied and efi'ective means for holding a sliding door or the like, wholly or partially open, and adapted for securely'lockingsuch door in such positions; to provide simple means for holding a self-closing door open and also closed; to provide for ositively locking such door fully open and fully or partially closed, and to allow a large vertical adjustment of the closure without interfering with the operation of the fastening means. v

The invention includes a novel manufactured article in the form of a locking button and it, also includes other features and combinations hereinafter more particularly 'de scribed.

keeper and means for holding the button in catching engaging position. Desirably a door is provided with a plurality of keepers in its face, with any of which the engaging means may engage for holding the door in a partly open or entirely closed position. To accomplish this I provide a button in the form of a pivoted plate and provide one or more vertical slots in the faceon the door into which the end of the button moves when turned'crosswise of the post.

Another object is to provide an'effective and safe keyless fastening means adapted for application at a uniform height at both sides of a sliding door so that the occupants of each of two communicating rooms may.

a sliding door. Fragments of the postsand.

movin door; 3 keepers thereon; et a button pivote to each post 1 to swing transversely to the door to engage the keepers on the door and 5 is an automatic stop holding the button in looking position.

6 is a catch plate desirably constructed to be applied to the face of the door and having s ots which form the keepers 3 in the form shown.

7 is a perforated back plate and 8 is a pivot screw passing through the button and, plate and screwed'into the door post.

The button 4 and the back plate 7 are desirably of the same shape so that both may be struck from sheet metal by the same die, and both are perforated at the center as shown at 10 and llto admit the pivot screw.

12 is a washer between the late and tln button to hold the button s ightly away from the plate so that it may be readily grasped by the fingers.

13 is a washer on the outside of the button against which the head of the screw 8 presses. Said screw is desirably screwed into the Wooden stop 14 of the door post and can be screwed to any desired tightness to allow the button to move freely and to take up any wear. The back plate 7 is provided with means for fastening the same independently to the door post. This is preferv ablydone by screws 16 through perforations 17 in'said plate.

18 is a case at the back of the plate 7 in which the sto 5. moves being pressed outward by a spring 19 and retained by a sho'ulder 20 on the stop engaging a shoulder 21 in the case.

22. designates beveled recesses on the back side of the button into which the stop 5 will be pressed when the button is at its unlocked position.- The recess and the head of the step are rounded to allow the catch thus effect the locking. The other arm serves as a convenient handle for the fingers to grasp to turn the button.

When the button is turned into door looking position the stop springs out into the way between the two arms a?) so that ng;

matter which way pressure may be applied to turn the button it will be securely held ,by engagement of the stop withone or the other arm. In this position the stop 5 is exposed so that it may be-pushecl out of the way of the button by a person on the side of the door on which the button is located.

In installing this device on the door the 20, catch plates may be applied at appropriate door and may be employed for locking the height on the door directly opposite each other and fastened by screws. Then holes or recesses 23 over which catch plate .6 is secured may be gouged out of the wood of the door. The slots in said catch plates form perfect uides for formin the holes in the are preferabl of aboutthe length of the button so as to a low considerable vertical adjustment of the dooreither up or down without interfering with the button.

The width of the catch plate preferably corresponds with the length of the button to give a uniformappearance to the fixture.

A locking device of a compact and neat appearance results from the two oblong centrally perforated plates constituting button 4 and back plate 7 being pivotally connected by means of screw 8 in such a manner that the button 4; covers the plate 7 when the button is unlocked. The perforation for the stop 5 is located at a distance from the axis of the pivotal means approximately equal to one-half of the width of the button 4: by reason of which construction the stop 5 is adapted, without the cooperation of any other stop means to hold the plate at against swinging in either direction.

By this invention any number of keepers -001- partly and wholly closed, and when it is wished to lock the door wholly open as is often desirable with gravity closing doors, this can be done by simply turning the button into locking position in front of the edge of the door when the door is wholly open.

When the device is in the locked position shown at the left in Fig.- 1 it is secure against release by anyone attempting to reach and unlock it from the opposite side of the partly closed door by means of a rod or other common instrument.

The stop is arranged so that it is conceaied when the button is in unlockingposition and the button covers the back plate pearance when the button is not in use.

The stop 5 seatin in its socket at thebaclr of the button wi l invariably bring the button into exact position to cover, the back plateand .will firmly hold it there in perfect "alinement with such plate, thus avoidin all danger that the button may accidenta'l y swin into position to mar the moving door. aid stop, being mounted as shown, is ada ted to move into and out of the path of t e button, under alternating pressures, respectively, of the spring 19 and of some external object as the finger of the operator, not shown.

The button preferably consists in an oblong plate the ends of which are duplicates and are rounded as shown, so that either end of the button will enter the slot when turned for this purpose.

-What I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is,

l. The combination with a door post and an edgewise moving door, of a button pivotally mounted on the post to swing in a plane transverse to the door, one end of said button being adapted to swing into a narrow recess in said door, and a catch plate secured over said recess and having a slot over said recess in position to receive said end of said button.

'2. Theeombination with a door post and an edgewis'e moving door, of a button pivotally mounted on the post to swing in a lane transverse to the door, one end of sai button being adapted to swing into a narrow recess in said door, a catch plate secured over said recess and having a slot over said recess in position to receive one end of said button, said button having a recess on its under side, and a spring actuated plunger tending to move into said recess in the button.

3. The combination of two oblong, centrally perforated plates, with means in the central perforation of said plates pivoting theupper of said plates to the lower, there being a second perforation through the lower plate located at a distance from the axis of said pivoted means approximately equal to onehalf the width of the pivoted plate, a stop in said perforation, and a spiral spring located beneath the last named perforation to normally hold the stop in the path of the pivoted plate, said lower plate being provided with means for fastening the same to a support.

4. The combination with an edgewise moving door and a door post, of a slotted plate on the door, a fixed plate on the post, a screw in said fixed plate and post, and an oblong plate pivoted on said screw and provided with duplicate rounded ends either of which is adapted to engage said slotted plate.

7 rated plate,

5. A door fastener comprising a perfomeans tosecure the same to a post, a stop mounted in said plate, a slotted catch plate, means to secure the same to a door, an oblong centrally perforated plate having rounded ends and also having one or more face concavities for said stop, and a screwto pivotally secure said oblong plate and said perforated plate together.

6. A fastener comprising a catch plate provided with a plurality of slots, means to fasten the same tovthe side of a door, a perforated plate, means to fasten the same to a door post, a flat plate having duplicate ends
