HINGED WINDOW IN AUTO DOOR AID FOR ARM SIGNALS
For motorists who drive closed cars, added safety while making traffic signals is provided by a hinged lower section of the glass door at the driver’s side. The device, perfected by a western inventor, allows the lower part of the door to swing outward horizontally when pushed by the driver’s arm. It is high enough so that signals can be made freely in the space when the section lies flat on its outer support, a rod bracket fastened to the car. The section is closed by a lever or a weighted pull-cord controlled from the interior of the car. It may also be opened by a lever. When closed, the swinging section is made to fit to the upper part of the door snugly and a brace keeps it from falling through on the seat.
