The present invention appertains to awnings of the type used for. windows of a house, apart ment, or other buildings, and an important ob Cil ject of the invention is to provide an awning so constructed that it will serve as a sunshade for windows or may be used as a ventilator. A further important object of the invention re sides in the provision of a device of this nature which is exceedingly simple in its construction, 10 easy to mount, thoroughly eflicient and reliable in use, and otherwise well adapted to the purpose for which it is designed. With the above and numerous other objects in view as will appear as the description proceeds, 15 the invention consists in certain novel features of construction, and in the combination and ar rangement of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described and claimed. In the drawings: 20 Figure 1 is an elevation of the device showing the same used as a ventilator on the inside of a N) Ul U-shaped formation, the cross portions of which are ?xed to the window frame and the upper plates of which are provided with openings if» so that pins H5 or the like may be passed through the openings as shown to advantage, for example, in Figure 5 and through the apertures of the lips or ears I2 for holding the frame in place. The frame also includes side members ll bolted or otherwise fixed as at ill to the upper ends of the legs 9 and bolted as at 20 to the corner ends of the legs 9b and curved washers 2i are associated with the bolts 20 so that they may be easily re moved to allow the collapsing or folding of the frame when not in use. The lower portions of the members ll are offset as shown at ll" in Figure 15 1 to lie in the plane of the respective legs 9 and the ends of the members ll are cut in V-shape as at H" in Figure 2 in- order that the edges of the end portions will lie in the plane of the edges of the adjacent frame members. A canvas covering 20 22, or other suitable material, is provided on the window frame, a portion of the fabric being frame so as to provide a main section m and‘ broken away, Figure 2 is an end elevation of the frame, side sections 1‘. Figure 3 is a fragmentary perspective view showing one corner of a U-shaped member form ing part of the frame, ‘ Figure 4 is a sectional view taken substantially on the line 4—4 of Figure 1, as Figure 5 is a similar view but in a reversed posi tion showing the device used as an awning, Figure 6 is a similar view showing the device inverted as compared to Figure 4, Figure 7 is a fragmentary elevation of the out 35 side of a window frame showing the means for attaching the device thereto, Figure 8 is a perspective View of a bracket, and Figure 9 is a perspective view showing one end of one of the frame members. 40 (01. 155-15) Referring to the drawings in detail, it will be seen that a frame is constructed of a substan tially U-shaped member A comprising a pair of overlapping cross members 5 connected together by suitable bolts or other means 6 so as to be 45 adjustable in length. These members 5 have adjacent their corners openings 1 in which hooks 8 may be engaged. Numerals 9 denote the legs of this frame member A. A similarly constructed frame member B comprises cross members 5“ 50 the ends of which are in overlapping relationship and connected together by bolts 611 and the ends of the legs 9b of which are bolted to the terminals of the legs 9 as indicated at II. It will be noted that the legs 9 have inwardly directed apertured 55 lips l2 to be received in brackets M which are of The covering is provided with suitable hems h for receiving the frame mem bers A and B. By proper location of the hooks 8 and the brackets l4 it will be seen that this device may be’ mounted as a ventilator on the inside of the win dow as shown in Figure 4, as an awning and ventilator as shown in Figure 5 on the outside of the window, on the inside of the window in the position shown in Figure 6 to function as a ven tilator. The brackets M are used only when the device is used as an awning as shown in Figure 5. It is thought that the construction, operation, utility, and advantages of this invention will now be quite apparent to those skilled in this art without a more detailed description thereof. The present embodiment of the invention has been described in considerable detail merely for the purposes of exempli?cation since in actual practice it attains the features of advantage enu merated as desirable in the statement of the in vention and the above description. It will be apparent that changes in the details of construction, and in the combination and ar rangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or scope of the inven tion as hereinafter claimed or sacri?cing any of its advantages. - Having described my invention, what I claim is: 1. A device of the class described including, in combination, a frame, said frame comprising a . pair of U-shaped members the terminals of which are secured together with the members in right 50 2 2,126.213 angularly disposed plane, cross members connect ing the corners of the frame members together, the frame being provided with a covering. 2. A device of the class described including, in combination, a frame, said frame comprising a pair of U-shaped members the terminals of which are secured together with the frames in right angularly disposed plane, cross members connect ing the corners of the frame members together, a covering over the frame, the bases of the re— in overlapping relationship and means adjustably connecting them whereby the width of the frame may be adjusted, the terminals of one of the frame members having inwardly directed aper tured ears. 4. A device of the class described including, in combination, a frame, said frame comprising a pair of U-shaped members the terminals of which are secured together with the frames in right an gularly disposed plane, cross members connecting 1O spective U-shaped members being sectional and the corners of the frame members together, a in overlapping relationship and means adjustably covering over the frame, the bases of the respec connecting them whereby the width of the frame -‘ tive U-shaped members being sectional and in overlapping relationship and means adjustably may be adjusted. 3. A device of the class described including, in connecting them whereby the width of the frame combination, a frame, said frame comprising may be adjusted, the terminals of one of the a pair of U-shaped members the terminals of which are secured together with the frames in frame members having inwardly directed aper tured ears, crossed'portions of said members hav right angularly disposed plane, cross members ing openings, said frame being supported by 20 connecting the corners of the frame members to gether, a covering over the frame, the bases of the respective U-shaped members being sectional and U-shaped brackets for receiving the ears, and hooks adapted to be engaged in said openings.
