292, Closure Fasteners, appropriate subclasses for devices for starting a closure open, or drawing it from a substantially closed to a fully closed position, wherein such operation is accomplished by cooperating surfaces on the latch bolts and keepers, which effect this operation during movement of the bolts into or out of latching condition relative to the keepers.
89, for a starter type operator for an ice-bunker closure, wherein the operator has means to prop the closure in ventilating position.
