CURTAIN TRAVERSE WHEEL
Theodore Dierking, New York, N. Y.
Application August 18, 1944, Serial No. 550,099
2 Claims. (01. 16——87.2)

This invention relates to new and useful im
provements in curtain hangers.
More specifically, the invention proposes the
construction of a curtain hanger characterized
2
hung from the link 2!. The curtain will be hung
from the split rings in any suitable desired man
ner. The link and ring may be made of cad
mium plated brass.
A retainer 24 for the wheels is provided. The
by a rail along which run a plurality of curtain
retainer has a bottom wall 25 extending across
traverse wheel devices.

Still further, it is proposed to provide a curtain
Each side wall is triangular in shape with its base
hanger as aforesaid having a retainer for the

wheels of each device.
Another object is to provide a retainer as afore~ 10 vided in each side wall. The bottom wall 25 is
also recessed adjacent the bottom of each open
said having a stop for a depending hanger.

act as guards preventing threads from the cur
tains from getting caught and wound around the
wheels and portions 22, and prevent the retainer
from falling off of the wheels, the space between

rail.

of Fig. 2.

devices of the hanger.
Fig. 5 is a front View of the device of Fig. 4.
Fig. 6 is an inverted plan view of the struc
ture of Fig. l, the link being shown in section.
The curtain hanger mechanism, according to
this invention, comprises an I-beam rail ID, the
top web ll of which is wider at one side than at
the. other, this wide side l2 having ori?ces l3 for
screws l4 (only one being shown) which secure the
rail to a ceiling or other structure (not shown).
The rail may be made of aluminum. It also has
a vertical web l5 and a bottom horizontal track
It extending on opposite sides of the web 15.
A curtain traverse wheel device i1 is mounted
on the rail. There will be a number of these de
vices supporting the curtain at intervals. As
thus supported, the curtain may be pulled back
and forth to open and close an opening respec
tively. Other articles similar to curtains may
also be supported from the devices.
Each device I‘! includes two spaced wheels i8
sliding on track l6, one on each side of web id.
Retainer 24 serves to retain the wheels on the
track, acting as a cage for the wheels, the wheels
being separated only slightly more than the thick
ness of web [5 which is thinner than the web H
or track It‘. Furthermore, the retainer provides
four shoulders 30, one at each corner of the re
cesses 28, these shoulders acting "as abutments
limiting the swing of the link 2| so that it is not
jammed against the sides of the track when the
curtain is pulled obliquely at too great an angle
when moving it.
While I have illustrated and described the pre
ferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be
_ understood that I do not limit myself to the pre
cise constructions herein disclosed and the right
is reserved to all changes and modi?cations com
ing within the scope of the invention as de?ned
in the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention, what I
claim as new, and desire to secure by United
States Letters Patent is:
1. A hanger, comprising a wheel retainer hav
ing a bottom wall for extending under and against
the bottom ?ange of an I-shaped overhead track
and side walls for extending upwards past the
sides of said bottom flange and transverse ?anges
extending inwardly from each side of said side
walls, a pair of wheels for riding on the side por
tions of said bottom flange and having axial
bores and having their outer faces adjacent the
central bore 20.
inner faces of said side walls and having the sides
A yoke-shaped link 2 l ‘depends from the wheels,
of their peripheries adjacent said transverse
the link having a horizontal end portion 22 dis
?anges, said side walls having openings with
posed in the bore 20 of each wheel. Thus the
shoulders, and a yoke-shaped link having its
link surrounds the track l6. A split ring 23 is 55

ends engaging into said bores and having its arms
extending through said openings and swingingly
limited by said shoulders.
2. A hanger, comprising a wheel retainer hav
and having their outer faces adjacent the inner
faces of said side walls and having the sides of
their peripheries adjacent said transverse ?anges,
said side walls having openings with shoulders,
ing a bottom wall for extending under and against 5 and a yoke-shaped link having its ends engag
the bottom ?ange of an I-shaped overhead track

sides of said bottom ?ange and transverse ?anges
extending inwardly from each side of said side
walls, a pair of wheels for riding on the side por
tions of said bottom ?ange and having axial bores
through said openings and swingingly limited by
said shoulders, said side walls and their openings
being triangularly shaped.
