DRAWER PULL
Donald A. Morand, Portland, Oreg.
Application November 18,I 1935, Serial No. 50,386
2 Claims.
This invention relates to improvements in
drawer pulls and has particular reference to re
inforcing liners therefor.
1
Drawer pulls of the character herein described
are manufactured of suitablyembossed sheetmetal
stampings which are formed around metal cores
or liners. 'I'hese metal cores are tapped for the
reception of machine screws, by which the ñn
ished pull is secured to the desired object. Here
O tofore, the manufacture of these pulls has in
volved the use of solid metal castings or forgings,
which were then tapped for the reception of the
securing means. The present use of elongated
pulls in rectangular and elliptical shapes has
necessitated the use of a considerable amount of
metal to supply castings or forgings of this
character.
The inventive concept contemplates the manu
facture of sheet metal liners for pulls or handles
of this character, which may be formed by a die
press and assembled to simulate the desired shape
of a finished product. Thereupon the sheet metal
casing is formed around the assembled core or
liner, and the finished product has the appearance
25 and rigidity of a forged pull, with the advantage
thereover that vit is more economical to manu
facture, in that it involves less time and labor
to produce; and ordinarily requires less than half
the material for its construction over the former
30 practice.
It is an object of the invention to provide a.
reinforcing liner for drawer pulls such as used
on furniture and cabinets which is inexpensive to
manufacture and which may readily be adapted
35 to changes and trends in designs.
A further object of the invention is tol provide
a novel form of liner for drawer pulls and the
like to reinforce the shape and strengthen the
contour of such articles.
A further object of the invention is to provide
40
a reinforcing liner for articles of the character
described which may be formed in sections and
assembled to simulate the shape of the finished
product.

that various changes in form, proportion, size
and details of construction within the scope of
the claims may be resorted to» without departing
from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advan
tages of the invention.

Preliminary to a more- detailed description of '
the illustrated embodiment of the invention, it
may be stated that the drawing illustrates two
conventional forms of drawer pulls, Figures 1
and 3 illustrating elliptical pulls, and Figures 5
and 7 illustrating rectangular pulls. Figure 9
illustrates a modification of elliptical pulls. Each
of the pulls illustrated employs a modification o-f
the inventive concept, Figures 2 and 8 illustrat
ing reinforcing liners, each utilizing two sections;

single section; and Figure 6 illustrating a liner

sectional reinforcing liners for articles of the
made up of an assembly of four sections.

simulate a desired shape and adapted to be main
tained in assembled position by a sheet metal
er pull l is illustrated as having a sheet metal
casing.

With these and other objects in view, the in
vention resides in the novel construction and
combination of parts hereinafter described, illus
trated in the accompanying drawing, and set
55 forth in the appended claims; it being understood
Referring to Figure 1 of the drawing, the draw
casing 2 formed around and enclosing a sectional
reinforcing liner’ composed of `a transversely
rounded channel or bridge, member 3 and a 50
base plate or cover member 4 therefor. Spacer
knobs 5 are provided to- maintain the pull in
spaced relation to the face of the drawer or
panel (not shown), each spacer knob having a.
central opening for the reception of fastening

means, as machine screws (not shown) which
secure the pull to the drawer. The base plate
member 4 is drilled and tapped at suitable points
to receive the screws. Preferably, the screws pass
loosely through the spacer knobs and are thread
ed into the pull. In an alternative construction
the spacer knobs may be rigidly ñxed to the pull,
and the screws be threaded into the spacers in
stead of into the pull.
In the manufacture of the illustrated pull, the
sheet metal casing 2 and the respective sections
of the liner are formed by die press operations
in the desired shapes, the casing 2 being of great
er depth than the combined depth of the liner
sections. The assembly operation may be Vper
formed manually or by machine, the liner sec
tions 3 and 4 being inserted in place in the cas
ing stamping 2, whereupon the side wall of the
casing 2 is folded under the plate member 4 as at
6 to maintain the liner sections in position.
In .Figures 3 and 4 is illustrated a pull 1 utiliz
.ing a _reinforcing liner 8 formed of a single
stamping having three sides, and adapted to be
_inserted in the sheet metal casing with its open
side toward the closed portion of the casing. The
side Walls of the liner 8 may converge at their
upper edges to conform to the contour of the cas
ing; and the side walls of the casing are folded
under the bottom of the liner to maintain the
same in position therewithin.
In Figures 5 and 6 is illustrated a modiñed
Aform of sectional liner comprising top and bot
tom plates 9 and I0 and side walls II and I2.
v«The plate I0 in this construction constitutes the
base member, while plates 9, II and I2 together
form the bridge member. Each of the liner sec“
tions is formed with an offset portion along one
edge thereof for the reception of the straight edge
of the adjacent section whereby, when the liner
sections are in assembled position, the shoulder
of the offset portion of the one section will retain
the edge of the adjoining section in place.
Thus
the shoulder of the offset portion of thev wall sec
tion Il acts as a support for the straight edge of
the top plate 9, and is in turn held in upright po
sition by the shoulder of the bottom plate I0.
strengthen the contour of the casing. The
ñanged portion I6 of the casing is folded upon it
self in such manner as to enclose the liner I1
therewithin.
Though there is shown and described herein
a preferred embodiment of the invention, it is to
be definitely understood that any change or
changes may be made in material and structure
and arrangement of parts within the spirit of the
invention and scope of the subjoined claims.

plied and a complementary bridge member rest 20
ing upon the base member and having lateral wall
uportionsdisposed at approximately right angles
to the plane face of the base member and con
stituting the sole support for ,the bridge member,
said liner being composed of a plurality of inde 25
pendent, loosely associated sections of' relatively
heavy stamped metal plate of approximately uni
form thickness, a casing composed of light sheet
metal enclosing said liner upon at least three `of
its sides and extending under the base member to 30

sembly, and supporting means for said drawer
pull located adjacent opposite ends of said base
vmember and disposed a spaced distance inwardly
35
of the lateral edges of said base member.
2. A drawer pull adapted to be ñxedly and non
rotatably fastened to a drawer structure and
comprising an elongated liner composed'of a base
member having a plane face designed to be dis
posed in opposition to the side of the drawer 40
