Application September 17, 1937, Serial No. 164,413
4 Claims“. (Cl. 156-—31)
This invention relates to shade ?xtures and
particularly to shade‘ pulls.
One of the principal objects of my invention is
to-provide a shade pull which is readily attach
5 able to shades of ordinary construction and which
is capable of being reliably secured to said shades
while at the same time presenting a neat and
attractive appearance.
Another object of my invention is to provide a
10 ?xture of the above described character which
is simple in construction, e?icient in operation
and economical in manufacture.
A further object of my invention is to provide a
?xture of the above described character which
15 may be readily detached from a shade and ap
plied to another.
A still further object of my invention is to pro~
vide a ?xture of the above’ described character
equipped with means forming a ?nger-piece or
20 operating medium which may be readily detached
for the purpose of re?nishing the surfaces of the
same in keeping with a desired decorative scheme.
Still another object of my invention is to pro
vide a ?xture equipped with an operating medium
25 capable of having secured thereto additional
means for assisting in the raising and lowering of
the shade.
~
Other objects and advantages will be apparent
from the following description, appended claims‘
30 and annexed drawing.
Referring to the drawing wherein like reference
characters designate like parts throughout the
several views:

Fig. lis a rear elevation of my invention.
Fig. 2 is a sectional view taken on the line 2—2
of Fig. 1, illustrating the invention associated
with a window shade of ordinary construction.
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the body fash
ioned with a shade engaging member.
Fig. 4 is a perspective view of a coacting shade
40
engaging member.
In teaching my invention, there is provided a
hollow body 5 of an elongated cylindrical shape
having opposed free ends throughout the length
45 thereof. One of said ends is oifset to form a
shade engaging member 6 of rectangular con
?guration having laterally extending angularly
disposed ?anges ‘l forming a recess in Which is
secured a body of resilient material 8, preferably
50 constructed of rubber. The opposite free end is
slotted as at 9 to register with a subjacent slot I 6
formed in the body 5, said slots receiving there
through the shank ll of a coacting shade engag
55
ing member I2.
The shank of the shade engaging member 5 2 is
elongated and provided with side ?anges and ex
tends through the slots 9 and ID in a manner to
position an elongated rectangular section I 3 in
opposed relation with the shade engaging mem
ber 6. The section I3 is also formed with laterally
extending ?anges to form a recess within which
is positioned a body of resilient material 14, pref
erably constructed of rubber. The bodies of
resilient material 8 and M are secured within the
respective recesses by means of detent portions 10
8a formed in the outer faces of said members.
The body 5 is also formed with an oppositely
disposed pair of slots IS, in registry with each
other and which receive therethrough an elon
gated shank l6 formed on the body section I‘! 15
of a shade operating member. The lower end of
the shank I6 is formed with an aperture 18 for
receiving therein a knob l9. The knob I9 may be
of any desired construction and serves to assist
in operating the device. The shank l6 consti
tutes the ?nger-piece for operating a window
shade when the device is attached thereto.
In use, the body including the shade engaging
member 6 is inserted about the lower portion of
a window shade 2!], illustrated in Fig. 2 of the
drawing. The lower portion of said shade com
prises a fold having secured therein the typical
stick 2| formed with upwardly and inwardly in
clined side walls. The shank ll of the coacting
shade engaging member I 2 is inserted down
wardly through the slots 9 and H] to engage the
fold and stick 2| of the shade between the inner
faces of the bodies of resilient material 8 and M.
The body 5 is constructed of resilient material
and yieldable to permit the lower section of the
shade to be wedged between the resilient bodies
8 and IA. The shank I6 of the shade operating
member is inserted through the slots I5. The
body section I‘! while functioning to limit the
downward movement of the shank also forms, to
gether with the shank, a decorative ornament of
neat and pleasing appearance. Said operating
member may be detached from the body 5 and
re?nished in suitable colors in harmony with a
desired decorative scheme.

Pull exerted on the ?nger-piece or shank IE
will cause the shade to be moved downwardly due
to the wedging action of the shade engaging
members effected by the in?uence of the yield
able body 5.
50
From the foregoing it will be apparent that
when the device is secured on the lower edge of a
shade the same will be securely held thereto and
may be readily detached therefrom by removal
of the shade engaging member l2 from the body 5. 55
