A plate I45, partitions the casing member I32,
into the cylindrical chambers I46 and I41. This
rotatable therein, and is provided with a longitu
plate has a central bore for admission of the
operation from the inside surface of the door.
A bolt I90, is slidably mounted and extends
through the wall of the dish of the sub-base
bushing I36, and another opening I48, through
which extends the cam follower pin I49, from the
end of the arm of lever I50, the latter pivoted on
pin I5 I, and controlled by coil spring I52, to main
10 tain the follower pin I49, against the periphery
of the latch control cam I44; the bent end I53 ,
dinal key slot I88, to receive the key I89, for
plate I16, and its movement is controlled by the
cam I11, against which its bent end I9I, serves
as a cam follower, urged by the action of the
compression spring I92, one end of which spring
of the latch I43, being engaged in the bifur
ispositionedonthe ?xed pin I93, extending with
cated bent end of the arm of the lever I50, indi
cated ‘as I54. To prevent rotation of the bush
in the hollow I18, of the plate I16. The casing
member I32, is provided with a pair of diametri
15 ing I36, it is provided with a socket I55, in the
underside of its ?ange, to set onto the stop prong
I56, which is formed out of the metal of the cas
ing cover I3I.
The casing member I32, carries the base plate
20 I51,» a ring I58 having an outwardly extending
gage arm I59, and the ring I60; only the latter
being ?xed thereon by the screw I6I, the others
being relatively rotatable one to the other. The
base plate I51, is adapted to be secured onto the
25 door 10. It is evident that all the components
thus far mentioned are assembled to be a unitary
structure; there being a ?ange I62, at the un
capped end of the casing member I32, to jour
nal said member to the base plate I51. The
tooth I63, extending from ring I60, is adapted
to engage the ring I58, at stops I64 and I65.
pinned at I81 to the base plate I51. The shaft
within said crotch I42.
cally opposite slots I94 and I95, which are adapt 15
ed to receive the bolt I90, when shifted therein
by action of the cam I11 controlling said bolt.
Said casing member I32, also has internally ex
tending lugs I96, lying between the stops I91
and I98, on the external periphery of the inter 20
nal gear I8I, and in the path of such stops. Al
though only one such lug I96 is essential, two
are provided in diametric relation, to attain a
more even drive. A socket I99 is provided at the
end of the shaft I12, for engagement by the key 25
controlled mechanism.
The cylinder means indicated generally by the
numeral 200, is normally wholly independent and
without any physical connection with the lock
mechanism proper of Fig. 1. I remove the shank 30
of an ordinary cylinder means, and provide the
The keeper, designated generally by the nu
meral I66, is adapted to be mounted on the jamb
key I89, which ?ts such cylinder mechanism, with
a forward tab 20I, adapted to pass through and
I03. It comprises a base plate I61, and an open
project outwardly from the shank slot 202 in the
end plate 203, which turns with the cylinder. 35
Within a cup 204, having a ?anged rim 205 the
size of the plate 203, and a shank slot 206 in its
casing I68, having an opening I69, in its side
nearest the door, to receive the remote end of the
gage arm I59, and a crotch opening I 10 in its
front face, to receive the headed end I1I of the
chain’s cross pin I 40. The crotch opening I 10 is
40 arcual, having as its radius, the distance between
the axis of the shaft I12, and the axis of the
cross pin I40; the former point being the centre
of the circle of which it is an arc.
The lower
portion I13 of the crotch opening is towards the
door 19. A spring I14, ?xed by pins I15, and the
side wall of the keeper casing, extends free within
same, and such free arm thereof is normally
across the arcual opening I10 of the keeper
A dished sub-base plate I16, has journalled
therethrough, the shaft I12, which carries ?xed
thereon a cam I11, within the hollow I18 thereof
at one side, and the gear I19 on the other side
of said plate I16.
A major segment of a ?at,
55 narrow, circular ring, indicated by the numeral
I80, is secured onto the sub-base plate I16, con
centrically about and spaced from the periphery
of the gear I19, only slightly. An internal gear
I8 I, having the stops I 91 and I 98, on its external
60 periphery, lies concentrically about and slightly
spaced from the spacer I80, and is driven by the
gear I19, through the pinion I84, which is ro
tatably mounted on a shaft I85, ?xed to and ex
tending from the sub-base plate I16. Thelatch
65 control cam I44, sits loosely on shaft I 12, and
is maintained against rotational movement with
respect to said shaft, because pinion shaft I85
is received in hole I86. To maintain the as
sembly of the components carried on the sub
base plate I16, the pinion shaft is slightly riveted
over the cam I44.
The peripheral diameter of
the internal gear I 8|,meaning its external di
mension, substantially equals the internal diam
eter of the casing I32, with which said gear has
75 slight clearance.
The sub-base plate I16, is
bottom, is a headed shank 201 capable of slidable
movement therein, carrying the coil spring 208
thereabout. The length of the shank 201, is such 40
that its end 201' lies within the slot 206. This
cup 204, withits related components described,
is secured to said end plate 203. When the key
I 89 is inserted in the cylinder mechanism 200,
its tab 20I, will enter the cup 204, thereby push 45
ing the headed shank 201 into the socket I99 of
the shaft I12, to establish mechanical connection
with the lock mechanism of Fig. 1.
Upon withdrawal of the key I 89, the spring 208,
which had been compressed, will shift the headed 50
shank 201 to its initial position, whereby the key
operated cylinder means 200, and the lock mech
anism of Fig. 1, are divorced, for said shank will
withdraw from its connection with the shaft I12.
When the lock is in unlocked rest condition, as 55
in Fig. 29, the related positions of the components
comprising the actuating mechanism is shown
in the Figs. 5, 7 and 27, at which time lugs I96 are
against stops I91, cam follower I49 is at 209,
whereby the cross-pin I40 is secure in the crotch 60
I42, and tooth I63 is against stop I64. Now. upon
insertion of key I89 into the cylinder mecha
nism 200, so that connection is made with the
shaft I12 as aforesaid, and upon turning said key,
whereby said shaft will likewise turn, gear "9- on 65
said shaft, will drive pinion I84, whereupon the
internal gear I8I , will turn about the spacer I80
as its shaft. At the commencement of this oper
ation, cam I11 will cause the withdrawal of the
bolt I90 from casing slot I94, while stop I91 0n 70
the internal gear IBI moves away from the casing
lug I96, and stop I98 approaches said lug. The
casing I32 is now freed of the base plate I16, and
upon further rotational movement of the shaft
I12, with stop I98fagainst lug I 96, the casing will 75
be turned, the conveying arm I30 will approach
the keeper I66, and the headed end I'll of the
cross-pin I40 will be conveyed and deposited in
the crotch opening I10, whereupon cam follower
I49 will reach region 2"] of cam I44, and action
of the spring I52 will shift said follower so that
latch I43 will move to free the cross pin I40 from
the conveying arm I30. Upon further rotation of
the shaft I12, the arm I30 will be swung to lie as
10 shown in Fig. 30, and shaft I12 having made a
complete revolution, the spring I92 will cause bolt
I90 to enter the casing slot I95, thereby ?xing
the casing. Crotch I42 is open, that is free from
latch I43. The cross-pin I40 has been drawn into
15 portion I13 of the crotch opening against the
spring I14, and the chain I39 is taut. The key
I 89, may now be withdrawn from the cylinder
mechanism 200.
It is to be noted, that during the locking opera
20 tion, upon movement of the casing I32, tooth I63
moved away from stop I64, whereby ring I58 be
came loose, and as soon as said tooth reached the
stop I65, the gage arm I59 was swung towards
the keeper I66, and entered same at I69. The
25 bottom of slot I69, prevents arm I59 from falling
further downward, and stop I65 holds it against
upward movement. In this way, no planer dis
placement of the lock structures on door and
jamb can occur.
The relative number of teeth of shaft gear I19
and the internal gear I8I is such, so that upon
one complete revolution of the former, the latter
will move an arcual distance equal to the space
between the stops I91 and I98, less the width of
the casing lug I96, plus a complete half revolu
To restore the lock to rest open position, the
key I89 is turned in reverse direction, whereupon
bolt I90 will be withdrawn from the casing slot
I95, and then casing lug I96 will approach and
contact with stop I91, and it is evident that the
operation of all mechanism is exactly in reverse;
the cam I44, being so designed, that latch I43 will
be shifted to lock the cross pin I40 in crotch I42
45 at the remote end of the conveying arm I30, as
soon as said cross-pin has entered said crotch I42,
upon the upward swing of the conveying arm
during the unlocking operation. After bolt I90
has receded, the casing I32 is turned, the chain
50 I39 loses its tautness, whereupon spring I14
shifts the cross pin I 40 in the arcual crotch open
ing I10, to be intercepted by arm I30 moving up
ward. Now latch I43, is shifted to lock the free
end of the chain to the arm I30 as aforesaid, the
55 gage arm I59 is swung upward because tooth I63
is against stop I64, and the lock structure as
sumes the initial position, with bolt I90 again in
casing slot I94. In rest position, slots I99 and
206 are in alignment.
From the inside surface of the door, it is evi
dent that upon insertion of key I89, in slot I88,
and by turning the key, shaft I12, will be turned,
whereby the lock is operated. To insure that
upon withdrawal of the key from said slot I88,
65 that slots I99 and 206 shall be in alignment, the
key is provided with notch 209, which becomes
engaged on the segmental internal ?ange seg
ments 2 I 0 in the bushing I36, but which is free of
said segments, when the key has reached the
70 notches 2I I, so that it may be withdrawn from
the key-slot I88, when said slots I99 and 206 are
in required aligned position.
