Referring to Figure 4, it will be observed that
the header B is constructed in the form of an
' open box having a bottom I, a rear side wall 2 and
a front side wall 3. The ends are open. For re

60 brackets F are utilized.
The brackets F are made
as right hand and left hand for application, re
spectively, to the right hand and left hand stiles
of the frame adjacent the top of the frame. Fig

In order to a?ord intermediate transverse re- .
inforcements for the tilting bar C, plates 29 and
38 are inserted in axially spaced relationship, and 65
each plate is apertured at 3| to provide openings
through which the metallic straps I9 and 28 may
pass. These plates are suitably secured in posi
tion against endwise movement. Suitably fas
tened to the plates 29 and 311 is a centrally dis 60
posed pipe, rodor similar reinforcement member
32 which thus maintains these plates in ?xed
position relatively to each other. Referring to
Figure 12, extending to the left from the plate
29 is a similar reinforcement member 33 which 65
stops short of the extremity of the tilting bar.
In like manner, extending to the right from
the plate 30 is a similar reinforcing member 34, ,
which likewise stops short of this end of the bar.
For closing the ends of the bar C, after the
plates 29 and 38 and the reinforcing members 32,
33 and 34 have been inserted, blocks 35 and 36
suitably shaped to enter the ends of the tilting
bar C are inserted, the inner faces of each of
said blocks being bored as at 31 and 38 to re- 75

The invention is claimed as follows:
1. In a Venetian blind construction, a tilting bar
comprising two concavo-convex sheet members 55
ers in the bottom bar are removed from 'the
guides, thereby permitting~ unitary removal of
55 the Venetian blind from the frame in which it
removably secured together along their margins
.
The blind of the present invention is installed
in any frame A, ?rst, by fastening in position
the brackets F and the guides 16 and 11, where
60 upon the blind structure as a unit is applied by
45
ment and proportion of parts, and equivalents 50
may be substituted, without departing from the
spirit arid scope of the invention.
The reason for this is that the header
may be slipped outwardly from its supporting
bracket F, and the rollers 14 and 15 of the plung
is installed.

The invention has been described herein more
or less precisely as'to details, yet it is to beun

As thus installed, the cables or cords 49 extend » '
70 forwardly and may at their extremities be pro
vided with handles for easy gripping-and for
tilting purposes. By reason of the tension placed
on the straps l9 and 20 through the medium of
the spring I5, the blind is normally maintained
75 in closed position, with all of the slats resting
‘gidity, said sheets and plates being apertured
for passing raising straps therethrough, and‘the
apertures in said sheets being longer widthwise 70
of the bar than the apertures in the plates to en

eye and pintle pin joints, closure means for the
