(01. 156-33) The present invention appertains to new and useful improvements in adjustable brackets for brought to the right tautness and retained in holding drawn curtains in taut position. . To release the curtain, all that is necessary is to pull outwardly on the stem I9 and this dis engages the detent I4 to permit upward sliding of the slider I3. A modi?ed form of holder is shown in Figures 4, 5 and 6. In this modi?ed form of holder, a plate 22 is An important object of the invention is to pro 5 vide an adjustable bracket of the character stated which will be of simple construction yet positive acting in use. . Another important object of the invention is to provide a bracket of the character stated which 10 will automatically retain itself as the curtain is drawn to a taut position. Various other important objects and advan tages of the invention will become apparent to the reader of the following speci?cation. 15 In the drawings—- ' Figure 1 represents a fragmentary elevational view of a door with the curtain thereon and show this position. provided and is of elongated shape, the longi 0 tudinal edge portions of which are bent outwardly as at 23 and so formed as to de?ne guide groove ways 24 into which can engage the ends of the pin 25 which is transverse disposed through the dog 26.
