Nov. 8, 1938. P. DELICH 2,135,564 WEATHER STRIP AND SASH HOLDER Filed March 19, 1937 BY ATTORNEY. Patented Nov. 8, 1938 2,135,564 UNITED. STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,135,564 WEATHER STRIP ' AND SASH HOLDER. Peter Delich, Duluth, Minn. Application March 19, 1937, Serial No. 131,912 1 Claim. (Cl. 292-18) This invention relates to combined weather ‘strips and sash control means, the principal ob ject being to provide practical means for verti cal control of a window sash without the necessity of weights and at the same time produce an adequate weather strip. Another object is to provide such a device con veniently manipulated by hand to increase or diminish the eiiiciency of same as a sash control ' means, particularly to compensate for varied re quirements in respect to the weight of the window to which it is applied. Other objects and advantages of the invention will appear in the following description thereof. Referring now to the accompanying drawing, forming part of this application, and wherein like reference characters indicate like parts: Figure 1 is a perspective view of a. fragmental portion of the outer edge of the window sash having one embodiment of the invention attached thereto. Figure 2 is a. perspective view of the crank member for adjustment of the device. Figure 3 is an end view of the two cooperative clamping members in the device. _ Figure 4 is a perspective view of a fragmental portion of the weather strip and clamp engaging tongue or bead. Figure 5 is a somewhat enlarged view of the clamping unit assembled ready for installation. Figure 6 is a perspective view of the adjusting plug. ‘ Figure 7 is a perspective view of the clamp spring and pintle. Figure 8 is a transverse sectional view of the clamp member just inwardly of their supporting pintle. I represents a portion of a common window sash, however having a groove or channel 2 formed centrally of the jamb engaging face, and, preferably about centrally of the vertical height or the sash is formed an enlargement 3 of the slot providing a pocket for my improved control OI lips are perforated to receive the pin 8. The lips on one of the clamping members (immaterial which) are of less distance apart than the other member so that they ?t one within the other as clearly shown in the drawing. About the pintle 8 and intermediate 0f the lips or bearings II of the smaller member is installed the spring I2, the termini of which are given several turns about the pintle 8 adjacent its ends and then extend outwardly to provide adequate bearing against the inner walls of the body por tion 9 of the clamping members to bias them out wardly, which results in the lips III of the clamp ing member being biased inwardly for the pur pose 5 of As bers of frictionally engaging the bead or tongue 15 the weather strip 4 when engaged thereby. adjusting means for these clamping mem I have illustrated the interior of the body portion of one of such as being provided with a slight enlargement or hub-like portion I3 having a hole therethrough internally screw threaded for the reception of the bolt I4 which is provided with a ?ange I5 upon its outermost extremity. From the center of this ?ange extends the rectangularly shaped projection or head I6 to 25 which the crank I‘! may be applied as noted in a selective position as the hole in the crank for such engagement is of the form of a Greek cross permitting of its being applied in various radial positions in respect to the bolt. Obviously the clamping members are installed in the pocket 3 before the bolt I4 is applied thereto, and there is a hole through the innermost wall of the sash I for registration with the holes in the body por tions of the clamping member. Consequently, after such installation and that of the bolt I4 and of the escutcheon plate I8 mortised within the face of the sash, it having the depressed socket I9 therein suf?ciently large to receive the ?ange I5 of the bolt H, the latter being sul? ciently long to reach to the screw threaded por tion of the farthest clamp body portion, when the means and on the face of the sash runway in the bolt is screwed in it will tend to draw the body jamb is attached in any desired manner the combined weather strip 4 and track, the track portion of the bead being indicated .at 5. The clamping unit is carried within a U-shaped supporting member 6 of ?at bar metal having portions of the clamping members together, thus the parallelextensions ‘I thereupon in which is installed the clamp supporting pintle 8. The clamping members comprise the body portions 9 and clips III, each clamping member having ap proximately centrally thereof a turned in lip in dicated at II on either edge thereof and which opening the lips II) of said members to any de In sired degree depending upon the pressure of the adjusting screw. 'I‘hus such frictional contact is I designed to fully compensate for the gravitating tendency of the window, and there may be such 50 connections upon one or both sides of each window sash as desired. To augment the frictional contact of the lips I 0 upon the bead 5 of the weather strip I have shown it as being provided with a series of per- 55 eeeeeee foretions 2% which is deemed. to sumce for such increase of the ‘frictional contact. If preferred, when these weather strips are made, the perforations may only be formed in one CR sicle of the head 5 to provide against lessening the function or this member as a weather strip. A sash control for windows having longltudi= nal slots in its side edges for cooperation with weather strip elements, said sash control com prising spring biased clamping members pivoted together between their side edges, and carried by the sash and adapted for frictional engagement It is to be understood that various departures from the smci?c construction shown may be re upon opposite sides of the extending portions of said weather strip elements, and a bolt extend sorted to without department from the spirit of ing through one of said members and screw threadedly into the other for regulating the Korea 10 the invention, and the combination 0f elements set forth in the appended claim. Having thus described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is: of said spring. PETER DELICH.
