T 0 all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FRANoIs J. BAYOK, a citizen of the United States, residing at Perth Amboy, in the county of Middlesex and State of New Jersey, have invented new and useful Improvements in Shade Brackets, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to window shade brackets,,and comprehends a bracket which is adjustably supported upon the window casing, so that it can from time to time be properly positioned for use in connection with window shade rollers of different dimensions, without changing the location of the bracket support, and thus preserves the window casing from being marred, which is the result of changing the location of window shade brackets in present day use.
More specifically stated, the window shade bracket embodies a supporting bar adapted to be secured to the window casing, and designed for use with a bracket of particular construction, which permits of the bracket being moved longitudinally of the bar to vary its position with relation to the window casing, and at the same time permitting the bracket to be moved without separating the bracket from its bar.
The nature and advantages of the invention will be better understood when the following detailed description is read in connection with the accompanying drawing, the invention residing in the construction, combination, and arrangement of parts as claimed.
In the drawing forming part of this application, like numerals of reference indicate similar parts in the several views, and wherein Figure 1 is a fragmentary front view of a window casing showing the window brackets mounted thereon.
Figure 2 is top plan view.
Figure 3 is a rear elevation of one of the bracket supports.
Figure 4 is a sectional view through the bracket support and said bracket.
Referring to the drawing in detail, 10 indicates the window shade brackets which are adapted to be arranged upon the opposed sides of the Window casing at the usual location clearly illustrated in Figure 1.
In accordance with the present inventien, each of these brackets include a substam 1922. Serial No. 562,788.
tially U-shaped offset portion, which is adapted to receive the bar 12 of its support. The bar 12 is also of substantially U-shaped formation in plan, and terminates to provide attaching lugs or flanges 14: suitably apertured to receive the fastening elements 15. This bar is of substantially rectangular formation in cross section, although the upper edge of the bar is reduced to provide a longitudinal shoulder 16. As above stated, this bar 12 is received by the U-shaped portion 11 of the adjacent bracket, and one portion of this bracket is provided with a shoulder 17 which engages the inner side of the bar 12. Cooperating with the shoulder 17 is a headed screw element 18 which is threaded through one of the parallel members of the U-shaped portion of the bracket 10, and this element 18 is arranged to engage the longitudinal shoulder 16 of the bar 12, so that the bracket 10 cannot be casually separated from the bar. It is only necessary to loosen the screw 18, without moving the latter wholly above the longitudinal shoulder 16, in order to allow the bracket to be moved longitudinally of the bar, in order to properly posi-' tion the bracket with relation to the window frame for use with curtains of different dimensions, the element 18 being subsequently tightened to hold the bracket fixed with relation to the bar 12 in its given position.
While it is believed that from the foregoing description, the nature and advantages of the invention will be readily apparent, I desire to have it understood that I do not limit myself to what is herein shown and described, and that such changes may be resorted to when desired as fall within the scope of what is claimed.
What I claim is In combination, a window shade bracket of U-shaped formation in plan, and terminating to provide offset attaching flanges adapted to bear against the window casing, the intermediate portion of said bracket being reduced along its upper edge to provide a right angularly disposed shoulder on the inner side thereof, a shade roller bracket designed to provide an L-shaped extension rising from said bracket and slidably supported on the intermediate portion of the first mentioned bracket, a lug rising from the shaderoller bracket and contacting the inner side of said intermediate pop tion of the window bracket to assist in der to hold the shade bracket fixed in any holding the parts associated, and a threaded given position with relation to the Window I element carried by the horizontally dis-. bracket. posed branch of said L-shaped. extension In testimony whereof I afiix my signa- 5 formed on the shade bracket, and adapted ture.
