6 Claims. (Cl. 20-68)
This invention relates to weather-stripping for
windows and has for one of its objects the provi
sion of a metal weather-strip which will main
tain a constant and uniform contact with the
5 window sash at all times.
Another object of this invention is to provide a
metal weather-strip which is particularly
adapted for loosely ?tted sash and will automati
cally adjust itself to variations in the difference
10 between the width of the bottom and top of the
Another object of this invention is to provide
a weather-strip which will eliminate noise and '
rattle of the window sash during high winds; is
15 quickly and easily installed, and which may be
cheaply manufactured.
With the above and other objects in View, as

thereon. Coiled compression springs ll sur
round the tubes 5 and each spring has one of its
ends reacting against the walll of the casing A
and its other end against the wall lllrof the mem 7.5
ber B. It will be obvious from the above that
the member B is slidable in the casing A and is
held in position and guided in a right line move
ment therein by the contact between the walls-2
and 8 and the walls 4 and '9.’ It will also; be 10
obvious that the compression spring [I constantly

all times, thereby eliminating noise caused by the
movement of the sash during high winds.v Fur

Located inside the casing are spaced tubes 5
which register with the holes 6 and 1 formed in

Received within the casing is' a member B, of
substantially S-shaped cross-section, the walls 8
and 9 of which, have sliding contact with the
55 walls 2 and 4 of the casing. The wall [0 is aper
the wall 4 of the casing A, the tongue I‘! and the '
wall 2| of the member B; therefore the sashes
do not come in contact with the window frame
with the result that the sashes slide on smooth
metal only. This feature permits clearance at
the edges of the sash and when the window
frames are painted the windows will not stick.
From the foregoing description considered in
connection with the accompanying drawing, the
construction and several advantages of our im "50
proved Weather-strip will be clearly and fully un
derstood. It is apparent that the weather-strip
may be used for the easement type windows,
and it will be understood that the form, con
struction and arrangement of the elements may
be varied. Therefore, the privilege is‘ reserved
of resorting to all such legitimate changes there
in as may be fairly embodied within the spirit
and scope of the appended claims.
Having thus set forth the nature of the inven
tion, what we claim herein is:
1. A weather-strip comprising a casing having
bottom, top and side walls, tubes connecting the
tion of a metallic parting-bead of substantially C

by said parting-bead, a substantially S-shaped
