Appiieatien December 3o, 1935, sen‘al Ne. 56,746 5 claims. This invention relates to rotary control handles and particularly is directed to improved mecha nism for raising and lowering the windows of automobiles or other vehicles, the object, gen 5 erally stated, being to provide an improved handle which, when not in use, may be recessed within the door to eliminate interference with the ve hicle occupants, which provides a symmetrical design of the fitting to render the same more at 10 tractive, and which generally is more advan tageous than the rigid crank-arm arrangements conventionally employed. The invention consists in the novel construc tion, adaptation, and combination of parts here 15 inafter described and claimed, the preferred em bodiment being illustrated in the accompanying drawing, whereinz-f Figure 1 is an elevational view representing the invention as applied to anV automobile door. Fig. 2 is an enlarged’plan view of the invention; 20 and Fig. 3 is a transverse vertical section taken on the line 3_3 of Fig. 2. Particularly as respects the drawing, the refer 25 ence numeral 5 represents an automobile door provided with a window 6 supported for vertical movement by means of well-known or suitable lever or gear mechanism which, as indicated, in cludes a shaft ’I supported for rotary movement 30 and protruding from the inner side of the door. According to the present invention, the ñxed angle crank-arm conventionally utilized to im part rotary movement to said shaft is replaced by a member Il] of a relative disk shape formed 35 with a centralf socket arranged to iit over a squared extension 8 of the shaft 1, a screw II securing the same. Provided by said disk mem ber is a radial cavity I2 the function of which is to house a handle I3 to normally locate the 40 latter in a recessed position flush or nearly so as respects the surface of the disk member, said handle being pivotally mounted by means of a pin I4 carried by the disk member at the outer limits of the cavity. The handle, as represented 45 by full and dotted lines in Fig. 3, is adapted for movement from normal recessed to an'exposed position lying at right angles to the plane of movement of the disk member, and for yieldably maintaining the handle in either of said selected 50 positions, the hub I5 of the handle desirably is `formed with planed surfaces I5’ disposed to en (c1. 'i4-#547i ` ` ‘ ‘ matically return the handle to recessed position following use of the same. The cavity I2, as in dicated, is somewhat of a pear-shape to form ñnger recesses laterally of the handle in facilitat ing the withdrawal of the handle to its crank 5 forming position. To aiîord an open chamber within which the disk member is rotatably received, I provide a plate element I'I which preferably is designed to fit an annular recess I8 formed in the inner wall 10 of the vehicle door, the plate element about its perimeter having a trim-forming flange I9 which operates to vcover the edges of velour or other upholstery 9 employed in surfacing the door. The invention should be clear in its provision 15 of a window-control arrangement which, when not in use, lies ilush with the surface of the door in a manner to prevent the same from interfering with the driver or other occupant of the vehicle either when entering and leaving the vehicle or 20 while riding in the same. Modifications of the invention will readiy ap pear and it is my intention that the invention shall be limited only as by expressed restrictions in the hereto annexed claims. operatively engaging the spindle for rotating the latter, revolubly received in the wall chamber and formed in its exposed surface with a re cessed cavity which lies in radial relation to the disk to locate the same between the center and 35 the perimeter of the disk, and a crank handle for operating the disk pivotally received in the disk vrecess with its pivotal axis outermost for move ment from an inoperative position within the cavity to an exposed operating position approxi mately at right angles thereto. 2. The structure defined in claim 1 wherein the disk is of single-thickness sheet metal construc tion peripherally provided with a reinforcing ilange. 3. A control crank for a rotary spindle com prising the combination of a disk member having a central socket arranged to operatively engage the spindle and formed to provide a relatively pear-shaped cavity in the exposed surface of the . same disposed radially of the disk to locate the gage a .fixed spring I6 secured to the ñoor ofA cavity between the center and the perimeter of Any suitable spring, replacing the the disk, a handle-supporting shank pivotally re fixed spring I 6, might as readily be used in modi ceived in said cavity for movement from a nor the cavity. fying the construction where it is desired to auto 25 What I claim, is: 1. In combination, a rotary spindle, a wall structure through which said spindle extends formed with an exposed cylindrical chamber ly ing in concentric relation tothe spindle, a disk, 30 mal recessed position relatively ñush with the 0 2 2,108,554 disk surface to an upstanding position relatively at right angles to the plane of movement of the disk, and a handle-forming member sleeved over the shank for relative rotary movement, the piv oted hub of said shank lying in the restricted throat of the cavity and toward the perimeter of the disk whereby the sleeve lies in the greater expanded portion of the cavity and toward the disk center, said expanded portion of the cavity 10 being of a width to permit the introduction of the fingers of the operator at each side of the sleeved handle for withdrawing the handle from the cavity. 4. In combination with a rotary spindle having ment from a normal recessed position at which the same lies flush with the disk member and with the surface of the Wall to an exposed oper ating position at which the arm extends in par allel Arelation to the axis of the disk member from 5 the perimeter of the latter, the length of said arm being less than the radius of the disk. 5. Crank mechanism for a rotary spindle com prising a single-thickness sheet metal disk stamped to provide a central socket by which 10 the same is fitted over the spindle and a recessed cavity lying between the spindle-ñtting hub and 15 its end projecting from a wall structure into. a the perimeter of the disk, and a cranking arm normally disposed to lie in recessed relation to the disk within the cavity and pivotally coupled 15 recess formed therein, crank mechanism for the spindle comprising a disk member revolubly Vre ceived in the wall recess to lie in flush relation to the surface of the wall, and a cranking arm 20 pivotally carried by the disk member for move to the disk for movement from its recessed po sition into an exposed operating position at which the arm extends in parallel relation to the axis of the disk from the perimeter of the latter. 20 WILLIAM A.
