17 Claims.
This invention relates to improvements in and
connected with adjustable supporting brackets
for awning blinds and the like and refers espe
cially, but is not limited, to means for support
5 ing the free ends of awning blinds attached to
spring roller mechanism.
The object of the invention is to provide simple
and convenient means whereby awning blinds and
the like may be readily caused to cover desired
10 portions of window and like openings of build
ings, automobiles and the like and whereby said

of such width as to accommodate a portion of
the pivot pin whereby the arm may be locked in
positions corresponding thereto.
The upper ends of the guides may be formed
with locking means adapted to coact with the slid
able brackets whereby the latter are retained in
their raised positions independently of the ten
sion of the blind.
.
A
Reference will now be made to the drawings
which illustrate preferred forms of the invention 10
and in which:—
,
means may be easily rendered inoperative as and
Figure 1 is a view in perspective of an awning
when desired.
Broadly the invention resides in the provision
of means for supporting awning blinds and the
like comprising a movable supporting arm hav
ing a portion of a blind connected thereto, sup
porting means for another portion of the blind,
a guide cooperating with the supporting arm
whereby the latter may be moved towards and
from the said supporting means for the blind,
and means for imparting a tension to the blind,
and constructed and arranged in such a way that
the tension of the blind imparts a turning mo
ment to the supporting arm to cause the latter
to normally bind on the said guide.
Preferably a guide rail is arranged at each side
of a window or like opening, said guide rails being
engaged by an opposed pair of supporting arms,
and said supporting arms being provided with
spaced projections such as rollers adapted to
firmly bear against the front and rear faces of
the said guide rails when a tension is exerted on
said arms by the blind.
The guides intermediate their ends may be
substantially straight or curved whilst their ends
(particularly their upper ends) are preferably
blind and associated mechanism constructed and
arranged in accordance with the invention.
Figure 2 is a View in elevation and partly in 15
section of portion of the mechanism shown in
rounded or otherwise so shaped as to enable the
said arms to move angularly therearound and
40 assume substantially vertical positions.
The rollers or other locking projections on the
arms are preferably, though not necessarily, so
arranged on said arms that, when the latter are
in their looking positions, the said arms make an
angle of somewhat more than 90° with the por
tions of the guides disposed between said arms
and the blind roller. ‘
In one form of the invention, each supporting
arm may be hinged to a bracket slidable on the
50 corresponding guide rail, suitable means being

Referring now to Figures 1 to 3 of the draw 45
ings, the reference numeral 1 ll designates a spring
roller mounted on brackets H above a window
opening I 2, the said roller 10 preferably being
of the type provided internally with an axial strip
50
of rubber in lieu of a coiled torsion spring, said
rubber strip being adapted to be twisted about its
provided for locking said hinged arm in one or
more positions on the‘said slidable member.
Preferably this hinge embodies a pivot pin of I axis when the roller is rotated in one direction.

I
These supporting arms I5 may conveniently
consist of ?at metal strips, as illustrated, and
their inner ends are forked when viewed in plan
whereby they extend on opposite sides of corre»
sponding guide rails It‘ arranged vertically at
each side of the window opening and below the
roller I0.
The guide rails as illustrated are of rectangular
shape in cross section though they may be circu
lar or of other convenient form and their upper
and lower ends are of semi-circular formation as
shown so that the free ends thereof are directed
15 towards each other and serve for attachment to
the window frame. It will be noted that the side
edges of the extended portion of the blind are
disposed vertically when the device is viewed in
front elevation; in other words, these side edges
are parallel to the guide rails when the device is
viewed from the front.
A pair of abutment members consisting of roll
ers I‘! are arranged between the forked inner
ends of each of the supporting arms E5, these
25. rollers being spaced longitudinally of the arm
whereby they may engage the front and rear
faces of the respective guide rail iii.
The roller I'I adapted to engage the front face
of the guide rail is disposed above the level of
30 the roller adapted to engage the rear face there
of whereby, when a tension is imparted to the
supporting arms by the blind i3, as shown in
Figures 1 and 2 of the drawings, said rollers will
?rmly grip the front and rear faces of the guide
35. rails, thus retaining the supporting arms in ad
justed positions thereon.
It will furthermore be clear that, when a down
connected to the outer ends of the supporting
arms I5. In cases, however, where it is incon
venient to operate the blind in this manner, I
may provide an operating arm I8 which is piv
otally connected to a bracket I9 arranged below
one of the guide rails I6, as illustrated in Figure
1 of the drawings. The outer end of the arm
I3 is ?tted with a roller 20 and a ?exible con
nection 2i attached to the outer end of the
corresponding supporting arm I5 passes to and
around the roller 20 and then through an open
ing in the bracket I 9 to the interior of the room.
When the blind is in its inoperative position,
i. e., when the supporting arms I5 are disposed
vertically, as shown in chain dotted lines at the
left of Figure 1, and a tension is imparted to
the ?exible connection 2|, the operating arm I8
is swung outwards into a horizontal position (see
broken lines in Figure 1) where its further move
ment is arrested by the end of said arm con 20
tacting with the face of the bracket I9 (see Fig
ure 6). When the operating arm I8 is in this
horizontal position the flexible connection 2|
extends upwards and inwards to- the respective
supporting arms I5 so that, when a further ten 25
sion is imparted to the said ?exible connection,
the supporting arms I5 are pulled downwards and
outwards into a substantially horizontal position,
at the same time unwinding the blind I3 from
the roller I0 and it will be clear that in this way 30
the said arms I5 may be displaced downwards
along the guide rails I6 to any desired extent.
When the tension on the connection 2I is
relieved, the supporting arms I5 are automati
cally retained in their adjusted positions owing
to the gripping action of the rollers I1 occa
sioned by the tension of the blind I3 and at the
ward pressure is exerted on the cross bar I4
same time the operating arm I8 returns to its
connected to the outer ends of the supporting
inoperative position.
40 arms I5, the binding action of the said rollers
II will be relieved whereby the said supporting
arms may be moved downwards along the guide
rails and, when the said downward pressure is
released, the tension of the blind will immedi
45: ately cause the said rollers to retain the sup
porting arms in their adjusted positions.
Furthermore, when the tension exerted on the
supporting arms is neutralized by imparting a
downward pressure thereto and when this down
.ward pressure is gradually relieved, preferably
accompanied by an inward pressure along the
supporting arms, these arms are moved upwards
along the guide rails and, during this move
ment, portion of the blind is automatically re
'wound on the roller I0.
Preferably, when the supporting arms are in
the position shown in full lines in Figures 1 and
2, the angle A is somewhat greater than 90°,
so that the inward component of the pressure
: exerted on the supporting arms by the tension
In order that the supporting arms I5 may be 40
raised either to their vertical inoperative posi
tions or to some intermediate position, a further
?exible connection 22 is provided, said connec
tion passing direct from the outer end of the
arms I5 through the bracket I9 to the interior 45
of the room.
When a tension is exerted on this flexible con
nection, 22, it relieves the tension of the blind
23 on the supporting arms I5 and causes an in
ward thrust to be exerted on said arms and, as
previously stated, these supporting arms I5 are
preferably so arranged that, when a thrust there
on is exerted, it has an upward component tend
ing to restore the arms to their inoperative or
other elevated positions.
In the case of wide blinds it is necessary to
provide an operating arm as I8 at each side of
the window opening in order to avoid undue
twisting of the structure formed by the opposed
supporting arms I5 and the cross bar I4.
of the blind will have an upward component
which will facilitate the raising of the said arms.
By providing rounded upper ends on the guide
rails I6, the supporting arms I5 may readily be
moved into vertical positions when not in use,
as shown in broken lines in Figures 1 and 2
In such cases the respective ?exible connec
tions 2| may be connected either inside or out~
side the room or the like whereby the said op
erating arms may be actuated in unison.
Alternatively a single operating arm I8 may 65

Similarly, by providing rounded lower ends on
the guide rails I6, the supporting arms may be

attached to the center of the cross bar Id.
Figures 4 and 5 show a modi?cation of the
invention wherein the supporting arms I 5 are of
- caused to assume downwardly directed vertical
positions at the lower ends of said rails, whereby
the blind I3 will be disposed substantially parallel
to the window opening.
Ordinarily the blind I3 is raised and lowered

telescopic construction, for which purpose the
outer end of the inner portion I5’ of the arm is
provided with a guide loop 23 through which the
outer portion I 52 of the supporting arm is free
to slide. Similarly, the inner end of the outer
3.
2,116,972
portion of the arm I52 is provided with guide
loops .24 through which the innerportion I5’ of
the supporting arm is free to slide.
It will be clear, however, that any other'rcona
venient form of telescopic arm may be provided.
Telescopic supporting arms are advantageous in
cases where it is desired to arrange the upper
ends of the guide rails I6 relatively close to the
blind roller III, while, at the same time, enabling
10 the lower end of the blind to extend outwards
a su?iciently great distance from the window
opening.
.
In such cases, of course, the telescopic arms
are extended when in substantially horizontal
15 operative positions and are contracted when in
cal position as in Figure 12 whereupon the arm
and locking bracket 29 are moved upwards 'by
the tension of the blind.
In order that the locking bracket 29 may be re
tained in its raised inoperative position inde
pendently of the tension of the blind I3, a
slot 36 is provided in an upper portion of the
rear face of the guide rail I6, and a light spring
31 ?tted to the locking bracket 29 engages the
front face of the guide rail in order that the 10.
upper lug 35 on the locking bracket will be
moved forwards into engagement with said slot
when the bracket is raised to its inoperative
position.
In the further modi?cation shown in Figure 13
their raised inoperative positions corresponding
of the drawings, I provide a guide slot 38 in lieu
to the broken lines at the left upper portion of
Figure 1.
In the modi?cation shown in Figure '7 of the
,20 drawings, the guide rail I6 is of convex shape
whilst its upper and lower portions are disposed
of a guide rail I 6 as shown in the previous ?gures.
This guide slot 38 accommodates a block 39 of.
substantially horizontally.
.
This construction enables the supporting arm
to be retained in various angular attitudes as in
dicated in full and broken lines in that ?gure.
Figure 8 illustrates. a further modi?cation in
slight angular displacement to ?rmly engagethe

opening.
In the modi?cation shown in Figure-:14 the
supporting arm I5 is rigidly connected to a sleeve
provided with a hole. through which the guide
rail passes, said hole being preferably of‘ some
what larger size than the guide rail to enable
.' the supporting arm I5 to tilt somewhat when
the tension of the blind I3 is imparted thereto
whereby a more effective binding action will be
obtained.
‘
.
In the constructions shown in Figures 11 and
ill, 12, the supporting arm I5 is hingedlyiconnected
to a locking bracket 29 having upper and lower
lugs 30 and 3| provided with ‘aligned holes
through which the guide rail I6 passes.
The locking bracket 29 is formed integrally
with a bearing 32 having a circular opening with
which communicates a horizontal slot 33.
The inner end of the supporting arm I5 is
formed with a laterally projecting pivot pin 34
of substantially rectangular shape in cross sec
‘i tion whereby one end thereof may enter the slot
33 when the arm I5 is moved downwards into a
horizontal position as shown in Figure 11.
It will be noted that the tension exertedby
the blind on the said supporting arm when the
latter is in its horizontal position serves to re
tain the pivot pin in locking engagement with
the slot 33. The outer end of the‘pivot pin may
be ?tted with a keeper plate 35.
