Having described the invention what is claimed
as new is: '
A curtain holder comprising a channeled plate,
the side walls of which are provided with guide
grooves, the bottom of said channeled plate
formed with close longitudinally spaced trans
verse slits, the portions of said bottom wall be 50
tween the slits being bent obliquely with respect
to the plane of said bottom wall to de?ne ratchets,
and a pawl having pintle portions engaged in
said guide grooves and being slidable in said chan
neled plate and adapted to successively engage
said ratchets.
