FASTENER FOR BECEPTACLE-COVERS.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented July e1, 1914.
Application filed February 6, 1911. Serial No. 606,813.
T0 all whom 'it may concern Be it known that I, CLARENCE R. CHEL- LEw, a citizen of the United States, residing at Peoria, in the county of Peoria and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fasteners lfor Receptacle-Covers, of which the following is a specification. y
This invention has reference to a new and improved fastener, which is especially useful as a means for clamping a transparent cover to jars or cans containing fruits, vegetables and the like. t
The invention has for its object to improve the manner of displaying and showing the contents of cans or jars containing fruits, vegetables and the like.
It is the custom for travelers representing large jobbers and wholesalers of canned goods to carry withv them cans containing the various goods to be sold. To display the same to a dealer, thefsalesman must cut open the cans, which are afterwardinconvenient to carry and are usually left with the dealer, a loss to the jabber, and if carinvention, the goods may'remain in the original package, or packages especially provided, which may have a transparent cover, so that onefmay view the contents, or be have closer inspection orremoved. The `fastener for clamping. the coveringbeing simple, and effective in use, and adjustable to all sizes of cans or jars. A A
' That the invention may be more fully understood, reference is `had to the accompanying drawings, in which v, Y Y Figure 1 isa side elevation-showing a can or receptacle containing vfruit or vegetables, with my fastener applied thereto to clampthe transparent .closure thereon, one fastener in ftheact yof being clamped in position; Fig. 2 isafacel view of a clamp, andthe can or receptacle to which rit isattached; Fig. 3 is a vertical section -of one-half of a can or receptacle and also of the fastener attached thereto; Fig; 4f is across-section in plan :of
the body of one of the fasteners, as .the same would appear onthe line 41-4 ofFig. 2, and
j Fig. 5 is an enlarged longitudinal section of the fastener, omitting the spring and camlever. Y Like characters of reference denote corresponding parts throughout the figures.
' The fasteners, as will beunderstood, are
preferably used in pairs, to be appliedto-a can or receptacle on diametrically opposite I i sides thereof, see Fig. 1. The description therefore of one will -suHce for both. It is to be understood however, that one of these devices can be used efficiently where the cover of the receptacle is very small. j
The fastener comprises a plate 6, which is of suitable length and width to adaptit to be applied to various height cans, jars or receptacles, and may be Lstamped out of sheet-metall or otherwise conveniently formed. Atthe lower end of the plate v6 it is provided with the diverging feet 7, extending obliquely from the body of the plate to adapt them to the convex surface ofthe can, jar or receptacle, see Fig. 4:, and the lower ends ofthe feet are 'bentl inwardly at right angles at 8, which are adaptedto be located ,beneath and engage the bottom of the can,.jar or receptacle. The upperfportion .ofthe plate is provided with guiding members or clips 9.and at a suitable point beneath the lowest" guiding member or clip a lug llOprojects outwardly from the plate, and beneath the lug10 thereis 11 in theplate. Slidable in the guiding membersA or clips 9, is astem 12, which has the threaded opening 13 therein for a portion of-its length at its upper end and formed an opening f with the tubular opening la for a portion. of
its length'at its lower end, `the eXtreme lower portion of the stem 'being split forming the bifurcated ends 15; vWhen the stem 12 is in operativeposition. in the guiding members or clips 9 of the plate 6,- the lug 10 onthe plat-e carried in the tubular opening 14 of the stem, `bearing against the lug 10, while between the bifurcated ends 15 and below the lug 10 there is pivotally attached to the stem 12 a cam levervr 1IZ. The lever being fulcrumed at 18 and its cam surface 19 adapted to rideor bear against the lower face of the lug 10, when the lever 17 is'moved downward, `which will causey the stem 12 to be forced downwardly against the action of the spring-16. Swingingthe lever 17 upward and outward allows the spring 16 to expand, forcing thek stem* 12 downwardly. Having a threaded relation with the threaded iopening 13 inthe stem 12 is a supplemental member inthe form of a stem or rod 19a, y y
bent at right angles at its outer end, as at 20, the end of the portion 20 being covered with rubber 21 or other soft and resilient material.
The can, jar or receptacle is designated A, the top having been opened, or perhaps formed with an opening, leaving an annular ring B.
C designates a transparent closure or covering for the can or receptacle which has an outer annular recess D to receive a gasket E, which will lie against the ring B of the can when the closure or coveiing is placed over the open end.
In operation, the supplemental arm or rod 19 is adjusted with relation to the stem 12, by screwing or unscrewing the same in the threaded opening 13 in stein 12. The plates 6 are then placed alongside the can or receptacle, preferably diametrically to each other, with the portions 8 of the feet 7 beneath the can to engage the bottom thereof. The stem 12 and arm or rod 19a are swung around bringing the parts 20y and engaging means 21 over the topof the cover or closure C, see Fig. 1, when the levers 17 are thrown down, which will move the stems 12 downward producing an impinging relation between parts 21 and closure C, locking or clamping the closure C firmly over the open end of the can. By this means the contents of the receptacle may be viewed through the closure and access easily had to the contents for purposes of sampling, and the receptacle again easily and quickly sealed and the receptacle and contents carried from place to place without slopping out.
The fasteners, as will be observed, are adjustable to different sizes of cans, jars and receptacles and are easily and quickly attached, removed or readjusted.
It is obvious that the fastener may be modified in various ways andl either stamped or formed out of sheet metal, which would slightly modify the present construction, without, however, departing from the spirit and scope of the invention.
