Pattcy, Poughkeepsie, N. Y., assignor of thirty-?ve per cent to Clarence T. Kilmer, Poughkeepsie, N. Y. Application May 7, 1937, Serial No. 141,335 1 Claim. (01. 74-547) This invention relates to a folding handle for handle 0, the spring acting to hold the handle use in automobiles and other places, the gen in either folded or open position and the screw eral object of the invention being to provide a 2’ passes through the spring. handle which can be folded out of the way when The handle 0 is curved as shown so that when 5 not in use so that one will not injure himself by in closed position it will be located a slight dis being thrown against the handle or striking the tance from the body A so that it can be grasped same. and swung to open position as shown in dotted This invention also consists in certain other lines in Figure 2. The free end of the handle features of construction and in the combination is provided with a substantially right angularly and arrangement of several parts, to be herein extending part which is reduced to receive the 10 after fully described, illustrated in the accom rotary portion ‘i which is held in position by the panying drawings and speci?cally pointed out in the appended claim. In describing the invention in detail, refer ence will be had to the accompanying drawings wherein like characters denote like or corre sponding parts throughout the several views, and in which:— Figure 1 is a fragmentary elevation showing 20 the invention in use on a part of an automobile for turning a shaft of the automobile. Figure 2 is a section on the line 2—2 of Fig ure 1. Figure 3 is a section on the line 3-3 of Fige 25 ure 1. Figure 4 is a section on the line 4-4 of Fig ure 3. ' Figure 5 is a section on the line 5—5 of Fig ure 1 with all the parts omitted excepting the bracket member. Figure 6 is a view of the inner end of said bracket member. Figure 7 is a view of the spring washer. The drawings show the invention associated with the handle used for turning a shaft which may be the window operating shaft of an auto screw 8. As will be seen these parts are so arranged that when the handle is in the open position shown in dotted lines in Figure 2 this member 1 can be readily grasped to turn the handle to rotate the shaft B. A slightly arcuate shaped socket member 9 is pressed in the recess formed in the body A, shown in Figures 1 and 2, to receive the free end of the handle member when the same is in closed position. From the foregoing it will be seen that when the handle is in folded position there are no projections to catch in the clothing of persons or to injure persons when they_ are thrown against the parts by a collision or the like. When the handle is to be used it is simply necessary to take hold of the same and swing it from the full line position to the dotted line position and then by grasping the member 7 the handle can be turned to rotate the shaft. The spring 4 holds the handle in either one of its two positions. 15 20 25 30 It is thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of the invention will be readily apparent. ‘ It is to be understood that changes may be 35 made in the construction and in the combina tion and arrangement of the several parts, pro mobile, though it will be understood that the invention can be used wherever it is desired _ vided that such changes fall Within the scope to provide a handle which can be folded out of the appended claim. 40 of the way when not in use. What is claimed is:— 40 In these drawings the letter A indicates a In combination with a rotary shaft and a body through which passes the shaft B which is member in which the shaft rotates, a bracket to be rotated and as before stated this shaft may member connected with one end of the shaft and be one used for raising or lowering the window provided with a pair of spaced ears, one ear of an automobile. having a recess in its inner face, an elongated In carrying out my invention I provide a brack~ ‘ handle member having one end arranged between et member I which has its head formed with the ears, ‘a pivot pin passing through the ears spaced ears between which the inner end of the and said end of the handle, a curved spring plate handle C is pivoted by means of the bolt or screw located in the recess and through which the pivot 50 2’. The bracket member is formed with a sock pin passes, the pivoted end of the handle mem .eted reduced part I’ which is rotatably arranged ber having a pair of recesses therein between 50 in a part of the body A and is formed with the which the pivot pin passes for receiving a portion non-circular socket 2 for receiving the end of of the spring plate to hold the handle in either the shaft B, the member I being connected with one of two positions, a rotary hand engaging 55 the shaft by a screw 3. A washer H) is placed part extending at substantially right angles from 55 between the member I and the body A. Y A spring washer 4 is placed in a recess 5 formed in the inner face of one ear of the bracket mem ber and is curved to engage the recesses 6 in the the free end of the handle member and an arm ate socket member receiving the hand engaging part when the handle is in inoperative position.
