PORCH LIGHT AND‘ NUMBER DISPLAY
' Carl Lorbetske, Seattle, Wash._
Application May 13, 1937, Serial No. 142,517
7 2 Claims.
This invention relates to an illuminated porch
light, that is, an electric bulb equipped accessory
in the nature of an attachment expressly de
signed to be attached to the ceiling of the porch
5 at a point of vantage to conveniently display the
identifying number of the residence.
The principal object of the invention is the
provision of a simply constructed device designed
to aid pedestrians and others in locating a pare
10 ticular residence by its street number.
In keeping with the primary requisites of sim
plicity and practicability, the preferred embodi
ment of the invention comprises a ceiling hanger
or canopy functioning somewhat as a re?ector,
' this being provided with depending end plates
which features serve collectively to support a glass
panel so made as to provide a holder fordetach
able interchangeable identifying numerals.
Other features and advantages will become
20 more readily apparent from the following de
scription and drawings.
In the drawings, wherein like numerals are
employed to designate like parts throughout the
views:
Figure 1 is a front elevation of a structure de
veloped in accordance with the principles of the
present invention showing how the device appears
and how it is hung from a porch ceiling or the
like.
Figure 2 is a top plan view of the device per se
30
seen in Figure 1.
Figure 3 is a transverse or cross-sectional view
taken approximately on the plane of the line
3—3 of Figure 1.
Figure 4 is a horizontal detail fragmentary
35
section whichmay be said to be taken substan
tially on the plane of the line 4-4 of Figure 1.
Figures 5 and 6 are fragmentary perspective
views of features of the complete assembly.
Figure 7 is a fragmentary perspective view of
40
one end of the number unit or frame, and
Figure 8 is a perspective View of one of the
end members of said unit or frame.
Referring now to the drawings by distinguish
45 ing reference numerals, it will be observed that
the main supporting or hanger plate is in the
nature of a pyramidal canopy, this being de
noted by the numeral 1. It is of general rec
tangular form and provided at its corner por
50 tions with integral L-shaped attaching members
8. These are properly constructed to facilitate
attachment to porch ceilings or equivalent sup
ports 9. The numerals Ill designate substantially
triangular end plates, the horizontal flanges ll
55 of which are bolted or otherwise fastened as at
(01. 40—130)
l2 to the under side of the ends of said plate ‘I.
The vertical ?anges l3 serve as convenient supports for the number frame or unit M. This
unit I4 is of general rectangular form and com
prises a sheet metal, supporting frame I5 having 6
upper and lower edge channel members I5a and
H51) in the rear thereof substantially rectangular
in cross-section and longitudinally slotted as at
I50 to accommodate the glass panel or lens I6.
Sheet metal end members 55d of right angled 10
form in cross-section ?t at their ends between
the members l5a and l5b, as shown in Figure '7,
behind the front of the frame 55. The front
of said frame I5 is extended at the ends thereof
beyond the members I511 to provide ornamental 15
extensions H. The described unit M is secured
to the ?anges It by bolts l8 passing through bolt
holes We and I5)‘ in the ends of the frame l5 and
the end members l5d, respectively, whereby the
latter are clamped in position relative to the 20
members l5a and i517. The ends of the lens I6
bear against the bolts l8, as shown in Figure 4,
whereby said lens is held against endwise shifting.
The identi?cation numerals which are assem
bled in groups are individually denoted by the 25
reference numerals 89. They are of standardized
proportions and each numeral has at its top a
retention lug 20. This ?ts slidably up into a
correspondingly shaped slot 25 in the upper mem
ber |5a of the supporting frame l5. At its lower 30
end each numeral is provided with a depending
. retention extension or complemental lug 2| hav
ing a projection 22 which may be described as a
detent. The lug 2i fits into the main keeper
seat 23 in the lower frame member I5b, while 35
the detent is seated in the auxiliary keeper notch
24. By having the double notch features 23 and
24 in the lower frame member, and slipping the
lugs 20 at the top» up into slots provided therefor
in the upper frame member, I provide conveni 40
ent means for assembling the numbers to provide
the collective residence identi?cation. Hence,
it will be seen that the identifying house num
bers l9 are detachably supported in the frame
It and rest against the outer surface of the trans
parent glass panel it. The panel 16 is illumi
hated on dark days or at night by an appropri
ate, horizontally elongated electric bulb 25 sup
ported on one of the end plates in and disposed
in parallelism with the inner or rear face of the 50
panel.
In practice the lugs 20 on the identi?cation
numbers l9 are slipped up into the slots 25 and
then allowed to drop down so that the detents
22 rest in the keeper slots or notches 24. This 55
2

provides a convenient arrangement whereby the
average house owner can purchase his own iden
ti?cation numbers and put them in place.
It is thought that the description taken in
connection with the drawings will enable a clear
understanding of the invention to be had. There
fore, a more lengthy description is thought un
necessary.
10 tion has been shown and described, it is to be
understood that minor changes coming within
the ?eld of invention claimed may be resorted
to if desired.
I claim:
tric bulb supported on one of said end plates and
disposed parallel to said glass plate.
