ANDREW J. ANDERSON, 0F GALESBU RG, ILLINOIS.

WALL-SAFE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

vPatented Apr. 25, 1911.

Application filed July 29, 1910. Serial No. 574,574.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ANDREW J. ANDERSON, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Galesburg, in the county of Knox and State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful all-Safe, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to that class or type of safes or coffers which are generally built into the walls of residences, offices, and other places where it is desirable to secrete and preserve not only from burglars and sneak thieves, but also from fire, valuable papers, jewels, jewelry, laces and the like, especially where it would be neither convenient, desirable nor necessary to provide a large safe. The doors 011 such safes are as a rule circular in their cross sections, and are made to swing entirely free from over the door-opening or pocket into which they fit. In order to accomplish this it has been found necessary to equip the door with an elongated hinge or hinges, frequently sectional or made up of several parts. One of the objections to this class of hinges is that some portion thereof, when the hinge is pivoted to the inner face of the door, protrudes into the safe-cavity proper, and inasmuch as this cavity is necessarily quite small (owing to the thinness of the wall) they not only occupy quite a portion of this valuable space, but they are liable to strike against and cause serious injury to watches, delicate laces, and many other easily injured articles.

To the end of overcoming this objectionable feature my invention primarily contemplates constructions relating to the hinge and the parts with which it is engaged, whereby the hinge per se lies flatwise across the door-pocket and immediately in rear of the inner face of the door, which latter it parallels and to which it is secured.

It is also an object to dispense with any projections at or near the central portion of such doors.

To avoid frail supports which are nonintegral with either such doors or the safefront-plate or other portion of the safebody is an essential, inasmuch as such constructions quickly permit of sagging of the door and produce ineffective results.

The foregoing are my principal objects. They will be made apparent in the following specification, together with other objects of detail.

In order that the invention may be fully understood and readily carried into practice I have herewith furnished illustrations showing its embodiment.

In said drawings: Figure 1 is a top plan, partly in section on the line ll in Fig. 2, the door shown in closed position, and Fig. 2 is an elevation, partly in section on the line 2-2 in Fig. l, the door shown in open position,

Referring to the drawings by numerals, the same one indicating the same part in the different figures, 2 indicates the front plate or portion of a safe-body which may be of any suitable shape or form, but which is illustrated as comprising a cement or mortar receiving portion 3 and an elevated portion 4:, the latter providing a door-opening or pocket 5 which is preferably disposed at one side of the median portion of the plate. The plate 2 may be secured to the main portion of the box or body in any suitable manner, or may be integral therewith. I have not deemed it necessary to show said box portion.

On the rear or inner Wall of the plate 2 and at the inner edge of the pocket 5 are lugs 6 cast integrally with the plate and provided with registering apertures 7 which receive a pintle 8 presently again referred. to. The lugs 6 are offset to stand out slightly past the edge of the pocket, as shown best at Fig. 1.

9 is a door the general construction of which may be as shown or otherwise, as may be found preferable or required. I have shown it as provided with a combination lock, the knob 10 of which provides a handle by which it may be actuated. On the inner face of that edge of the door which is most remote from the lugs 6 I provide a pair of lugs 11 having registering apertures for the reception of a pintle 12.

The hinge 13 comprises a parallelogrammic figure or skeleton. each end portion of which is provided with extensions, 14 and 15, respectively. in pairs, and each pair of said extensions is provided with registering apertures for the reception of the proper one of the pintles hereinbefore referred to. and in an evident manner. It will be manifest, especially from an inspection of Fig. 1, that the hinge lies flat and parallel with the face of the door; that there are no angular projections to cause injury to the contents of the box; that the hinge element per se is a single piece, devoid of joints and therefore inflexible; that the double pairs of lugs, be cause of their integrality with the door and the safefront-plate 2 hold or restrain the door absolutely and positively from sagging, that said lugs, so arranged, provide an eX- tremely freely-swinging means; that the hinge per se being in a single piece, of skeleton construction, constitutes a simple, durable and extremely strong one; that the door may be swung with ease and facility to any desired position, and entirely free from the pocket; that because of the door-lugs being at that edge thereof which is opposite the lugs on the plate, the act of swinging the door is more easily accomplished, inasmuch as a perfect equilibrium is established; and that as a whole the safe is much simpler, more economic both of manufacture and sale, and less liable to become out of order than any heretofore produced.

I am aware of Patent No. 402,590, granted May 7, 1889, to J. L. Hall, and of Patents Nos. 960,981 and 960,982, granted June 7, 1910, to Meilink and Reynolds, and hereby disclaim, specifically, anything therein claimed.

Having thus set forth the construction and operation, the purposes and advantages of my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent the following, to-wit:

l. A safe-front-plate provided with a door-pocket, and provided also with lugs formed integral with and disposed on the inner face of said plate and projecting over the edge of said pocket.

2. In combination, a safe-front-plate provided with an opening, there being lugs integral with said plate and disposed at one side of and projecting over said opening, a door adapted to close said opening, there being lugs thereon and integral therewith disposed at that one of its inner edge portions which is most remote from the lugs on said plate, and a hinge element connecting said plate and door.

3. A safe in which are combined a frontplate provided with a door-pocket and having a pair of integral hinge-engaging lugs cast on its inner wall and projecting over the edge of said pocket, at door having a pair of integral hinge-engaging lugs cast on its inner face, and a hinge element connecting said pairs of lugs.

4;. A safe including a front plate having a pair of lugs cast integral therewith and disposed on its inner face, said lugs provided with registering apertures, a door having a pair of lugs cast integral therewith, said lugs disposed at that one of its inner edge portions which is most remote from the lugs on said plate and provided with registering apertures, a hinge element provided with a pair of extensions at each of its ends, said pairs of extensions provided with registering apertures, a pintle passed through the apertures in the lugs in the door and through one pair of the apertures in said hinge element, and a pintle member passed through the apertures in the lugs and through the other pair of apertures in said hinge extensions.
