3 Claims. (Cl. 20-69)
I for anchoring said plate 2 in position thereon.
The present invention relates to new and useful The free end portions of the anchoring. prongs
improvements in weatherstrips, and has for its 3 are clinched, as at 4, the clinched portions 4 be
primary object to provide an article of this char
ing countersunk in the body I, as illustrated to
acter comprising a body of felt, rubber, or other
5 pliable material having mounted thereon a resil
ient metallic supporting plate, the construction
and arrangement of said supporting plate being
such as to provide an efficient and durable
Weatherstrip, adaptable for a great number of
10 uses, that is capable of being coiled on a spool or
core to facilitate easy handling by users as well
as simplifying the handling and dispensing of the
product by dealers.
Furthermore, the unique
method used to fasten or bond the pliant mate
15 rial to the metallic member also provides uni
formly spaced perforations by which the weather
strip can be easily attached with nails or screws.
Other objects of the invention are to provide
a Weatherstrip of the aforementioned character
which can easily be installed by the average per
20 son without particular mechanical ability, will
present a neat and attractive appearance when
installed, and will function e?iciently and durably
as a Weatherstrip for doors and windows of every
description. In addition, this invention has other
advantage in Figure 2 of the drawing.
The 5
struck out anchoring prongs 3 provide openings 5
in the plate 2 which accommodate securing nails
or screws.
The longitudinal marginal portions of the plate
2 are bent at an obtuse angle in a manner to pro
vide inturned ?anges 6. It will be noted that one
of the flanges 6 extends over the inner or unused
longitudinal edge of the body I in a manner to
protect the same. The resilient metallic plate 2
is so constructed as to hold the body I ?rmly 15
when the Weatherstrip is applied.
It is believed that the many advantages of a
Weatherstrip constructed in accordance with the
present invention will be readily understood, and
although a preferred embodiment of the article 20
is as illustrated and described, it is to be under
stood that changes in the details of construction
may be resorted to which will fall within the
scope of the invention as claimed.
What is claimed is:--
l. A weather strip comprising a pliable body,

any type of container or similar article from
an elongated metallic plate mounted on one side
of said body, obtuse longitudinal ?anges on said
which it is necessary to exclude dust, moisture,
vermin, moths, light, etc.
While the primary object is to provide an ef
ficient Weatherstrip that is capable of being mar
keted in coil form and which is capable of being
applied to doors, windows, and other openings of
various contours, the Weatherstrip may also be
