Application April 9, 1937, Serial No. 136,007
3 Claims. (Cl. 20-35)
My invention relates to improvements in doors, side of the door frame I as best shown in Figure
particularly automobile doors such as are used in 5. The channels 5 and 6 are spaced slightly from
the panel 4 and interposed between said panels
buses, and the primary object thereof is to pro
vide an inexpensive means for removably securing and keeper frame 8 is padding strip I3 of felt or
other suitable material extending completely
i) a glass panel in the door frame quickly and with
around said panel and retaining or keeper frame.
a minimum expenditure of labor and material.
The keeper frame 8 is held in the channels 5 and
To the accomplishment of the above and sub
ordinate objects presently appearing a preferred 5 by aV keeper strip I4 secured in the socket 1 by
embodiment of my invention has been illustrated means of screws I5 passing through said strips I4
in the accompanying drawings, set forth in detail and the frame I beyond the adjacent end of the

keeper strip I4 overlaps the upper end of the
claims appended hereto.

rection indicated by the arrows.
When it is desired to assemble the described

frame forming part of my invention.
Figure 4 is a fragmentary View in side elevation tion on the seat 2 against the flange 3. The
looking at the opposite side of the door from that keeper frame 8 is then ñexed or bowed, at its ends
so that the sides 9 thereof may be inserted in the
shown in Figure 1.

this operation the lower end of the keeper frame 25

strip for retaining the keeper frame in position.
Referring to the drawings by numerals, ac
cording to my invention the door frame I, in this
instance of rectangular form, is rabbeted around
the inne-r edge thereof to provide a rectangular
seat 2 and an abutment flange 3 on one side of
the frame extending around the inner edge of the
latter. The seat 2 is designed to receive the usual
glass panel 4 which is retained in position on one
side of the frame I by the aforesaid ñange 3. At
the side of the panel 4 opposite to the flange 3
the frame I is channeled around the inner edges
40 of its bottom and sides to a uniform depth, as
at 5 and 6, respectively and the top of said frame
is cut away or reduced in thickness on the chan
neled side of said frame to a depth correspond
ing to the plane of the inner side of the channels
' 5 and 6 to thereby form a socket 'I into which
the side channels 6 open, said socket having in
wardly bevelled ends for a purpose presently seen.
Mounted in the channels 5 and 6 to extend part
way into the socket 'I is a rectangular keeper
frame 8 of flat resilient metal overlying at its in
ner edges the opposed edges of the panel 4. The'
sides 9 of the keeper frame 8 have formed in their
outer edges, substantially midway of said ends,
bayonet slots Ill each receiving a pin I2 passing
55 through the channeled part of the corresponding
lease of the ilexed keeper frame 8, as will be
clear the sides 9 thereof will spring into the side
channels 5 against the pins I3. It may be stated
at this point that the bayonet slots IU and pins 30
I3 are located so that in th-e described elevated
position of the keeper frame 8 said slots and pins
are out of registry. The keeper frame 8 is next
forced downwardly into the bottom channel 5
during which operation the bayonet slo'ts I0 are 35
moved into registration with the pins I3 and the
latter enter said slots and interlock with the same
in a manner which will be obvious.
As soon as
the pins I3 enter the bayonet slots I0 the sides
9 of the keeper frame seat themselves in the side 40
channels 6. The keeper strip I4 is next secured
in position, as described, thereby locking the
keeper frame against removal from the door
frame I. Obviously the glass panel 4 may be
removed from the door frame I by reversing the
procedure described in securing said panel in said
frame. The keeper strip I4 is provided with a
rabbeted inner face, as at I1, fitting over the up
per edge of the keeper frame 8 as best shown in
Figure 2 whereby said frame 8 is securely held
against endwise play in an upward direction.
The foregoing constitutes a detailed description
of a preferred embodiment of my invention and
it is believed that advantages and operation
thereof will be clear without further explanation.
