Feb. 10, 1959 E. A. BELMONT TEMPERATURE CONTROL MEANS FOR FAUCETS Filed Sept. 20. 1954 Edward A. Be/m on! IN VEN TOR.
0 WWW Em United States 2,872,829 TEMPERATURE 'CUNTRDL MEANS FOR FAUCETS Edward A. Belmont, Granada Hills, Calif. Application September 20, 1954, Serial No. 457,207 3 Claims. (Cl. 74--480) Another object of the invention is to provide a linkage mechanism adapted for connecting to the valve stems of both of the faucets and without necessitating any changes or alterations in the construction of the standard hot and cold water faucets.
A still further object is to provide adjustable means for the linkage.
Another object is to provide a device of this character of simple and practical construction, which is eificient and reliable in operation, relatively inexpensive to manufacture, and otherwise well adapted for the purpose for which the same is intended.
These together with other objects and advantages which will become subsequently apparent reside in the details of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawings forming a part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which: t
Figure 1 is a front elevational view,
Figure 2 is a side elevational view with parts broken away and shown in section; and
Figure 3 is an enlarged group perspective view.
Referring now to the drawings in detail, wherein for the purpose of illustration, I have disclosed a preferred embodiment of my invention, the numerals 5 and 6 designate a pair of arms of rigid strap metal construction and formed with eyes 7 and 8, respectively, at one end and formed with longitudinal rows of spaced apart openings 9 and 10, respectively, adjacent the opposite ends of the arms.
The eye 7 of arm 5 is adapted for attaching to the stem of a valve for a hot water faucet 11 While the eye 8 of arm 6 is adapted for attaching to the valve stem for the valve of a cold water faucet 12. The eyes of the respective arms are secured to the valve stems by means of set screws 13 to rotate the valve stems for opening and closing the hot and cold Water faucets by a swinging movement of the arms.
The faucets 11 and 12 are of a type usually provided for showers, bathtubs, wash basins or the like and are arranged in spaced apart relation with respect to each other and provided with'a single outlet or discharge spout (not shown). The free ends of the arms 5 and 6 are connected in parallel relation with respect to each other by means of a linkage designated generally at 14 and also preferably of strap metal construction and including overlapping linkage sections 15 and 16 having a row of aligned openings 17 at their overlapping inner end portions for securing the sections of the linkage in extensibly adjusted position with respect to each other by bolts and nuts 18 and 19.
The outer end of linkage section 15 is formed with a longitudinally extending slot 26 to slidably receive a bolt 21 secured in a selected opening 9 of arm 5 by a nut 22, while the outer end of linkage section 16 is formed with an opening 23 to receive a bolt 24 engaged in a selected opening 10 of arm 6 by a nut 25.
With the arms 5 and 6 and linkage 14 connected to the hot and cold water faucets 11 and 12, in the manner indicated in Figure l of the drawings, the turning of the hot water faucet 11 to its open position will swing the arm 5 toward the right, and the linkage 14 will actuate the arm 6 of cold water faucet 12 in a similar direction to also turn on the cold water faucet to simultaneously open both faucets and control the temperature of the water discharged therefrom. The closing of the cold water faucet 12 will simultaneously close both faucets.
he slot 20 in linkage section 15 and bolt 21 connecting the same to the arm 5 enables the cold Water faucet 12 to be turned on independently or in excess of the hot water faucet 11, to provide an added amount of cold Water, when desired, for rinsing purposes while bathing.
From the foregoing, the construction and operation of the device will be readily understood and further ex planation is believed to be unnecessary. However, since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction shown and described, and accordingly, all suitable modifications and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the appended claims.
What is claimed as new is as follows:
1. A mixing control for faucets comprising in combination a pair of valve stems, each having a handle, a pair of arms, each having an eye at one end in which the valve stems are respectively received, means carried by the eyes securing the latter to the stems for turning the latter upon a swinging movement of the arms, and a link secured at one end to one of the arms and having a pin and slot connection at its other end with the other of said arms to simultaneously actuate both valve stems in one direction upon a predetermined manipulation of one valve handle and to independently manipulate either valve stem in predetermined directions.
2. A mixing control for faucets comprising in combination a pair of valve stems, each having a handle, a pair of arms, each having an eye at one end in which the valve stems are respectively received, means carried by the eyes securing the latter to the stems for turning the latter upon a swinging movement of the arms, a link connecting the arms to each other, said link being con nected to one of the arms for movement therewith when the related valve stem is turned in either direction, and a pin and slot connection between the other end of the link and the other of said arms for independent actuating movement of the latter in one direction.
3. The combination of claim 1, wherein said link is extensible and contractible for varying the degree of in dependent manipulation of either valve stem with respect to the other valve stem.
