'5 Claims. (Cl. 240-735)
The present invention relates to lighting ?x
tures and is more particularly directedto» hinge
mechanism for lighting ?xtures of the ceiling
type.
The present invention contemplates lighting
?xtures having downwardly depending walls to
receive a shade supporting band and recessed to
receive a hinge element carried by the band. The
band may be a continuous or split band and in
10 cludes means pivotally connecting it to the frame
to permit it to be suspended in open position.
According to the present invention the band is
formed with hinge knuckle such as a channel and
the hinge element constitutes a pin or pintle sup
15 ported in the channel and about which the band.
may swing, the pin also serving as an alining
element when a split band is used.
The accompanying drawing shows, for pur
poses of illustrating the present invention, an
20 embodiment in which the invention may take
form, it being understood that the drawing is
illustrative of the invention rather than limiting
the same.

In this drawing:
Fig. 1 is a plan view partially fragmentary to
show the assembled ?xture and relative relation
of parts for assembly;
Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view on the line
2-2 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary view of one end of the
?xture showing the hinge support; and
Fig. 4 is a section on the line 4—4 of Fig. 1.
be split as at 30 to permit it to be sprung open
to insert ?ange 24 of shade 22 and when closed
to embrace same, and when closed pin l8 serves
as an alining and holding member for the split
band.

When hinge pin I8 is placed in hinge knuckle
or channel 28, the band and frame may be
hingedly connected by placing one end of pin ill
in recess [6 with the other end swung diagonally
forward (Fig. 1) until it comes within the pe
riphery of face opening [4, whereupon it may be
raised and swung rearwardly in groove 28 until it
alines with recess I9. Thus positioned the shade
will be suspended in open position as shown by
dotted outline Fig. 2, whereupon it may be pivoted 15
upwardly, positioning the entire band 20 within
the depending walls of frame 2. The band is
provided at the end opposite the hinge with a
slot 32 into which a latch member 34 may be ro
tated by actuating bolt 36 carried in wall [2 to 20
lock the shade in position.
There is also provided a supporting plate 38
which could be integral with frame 2 but as
shown it constitutes a separate member screw
threadedly attached thereto.
Depending from
the lower face of plate 38 is a clamp 40 prefer
ably formed of a strip of resilient metal secured
to plate 38 as by rivets 4|. When shade 22 is
raised into position, band 28 will tend to raise
clamp 40 parallel to the supporting plate 3.8 30
whereby the downward bias of clamp 40 will pre
vent chatter of the frame due to vibration such
Referring to the drawing, a substantially hori
zontal frame is indicated by the reference charac
36 ter 2. The frame is generally rectangular, though
other shapes may be used and includes depend
ing side walls 4 and 6 and end walls 8 and I ll, the
end walls being turned inwardly as at I2 to de?ne
a rectangular face opening [4, and also provide
second clamp of like nature may be provided to
bias the opposite end of the band downwardly 35
on latch member 32. The supporting plate 38 is
provided with apertures 42 through which screws
44 may be passed for securing the ?xture to the
ceiling, and supports a socket 45 and lamp bulb
40 an external ?nish to the fixture.
There is provided in side wall 6 a recess 16 for
46 as indicated.
It is obvious that the invention may be em
supporting one end of a hinge pin or pintle l8,
and wall 4 is provided with longitudinal groove
20 terminating in a recess IQ for supporting the
45 other end of the pin l8. As pin 18 is wider than
bodied in other forms and constructions within
the scope of the claims and it is to be understood
that only the preferred form has been shown
and various modi?cations and changes being 45
possible, I do not otherwise limit myself in any
way with respect thereto.
I claim:

The shade '22 may have any desired shape and
50 as shown is provided with a rectangular ?ange
24 adapted to be received in a supporting band
28. The band 26 is formed at one end with a
hinge knuckle such as channel 28 for engaging
the hinge pin l8, it being understood that other
55 forms of knuckles may be used. The band 28 may
as when the device is mounted in a vehicle.
