POURING SPOUT FOR CANS.

APPLICATION FILED NOV. 28. I913.

1,153,998. PatentedSept. 21, 1915.

auuemtoz AMOS G--,C.L1\IBY, OF DETROIT; IVZICHIGANM rename-snoop, rongcnns.

Application filedv November 28, 1913.

To all who at it may concern e it known that I, Airos G. Canny, a citizen of the United States of America, re siding at Detroit, in the county of Wayne and State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Pouring-Spouts for Cans, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.

It is frequently desirable to provide shipping cans and like receptacles with pouring spouts that may be adjusted after the shipping or sealed cover is removed so that the receptacle may be readily emptied.

This invention relates to a receptacle and pouring spout therefor wherein the spout is so disposed that it is wholly contained in the receptacle when the latter is sealed for shipment. It is readily withdrawable when the package is open and is easily adjusted for use in pouring from the package.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a View in Vertical section, partially broken away and in elevation, of a receptacle provided with a pouring spout and sealed ready for shipment; Fig. 2 is a View of the receptacle with the spout adjusted for pouring; Fig. 3 is a view showing a modification of the spout; and Fig. i is a View in detail of the spout base.

Referring to the drawings, a receptacle 1 is provided with a cap 2 having a slightly flared flange 3 which constitutes the outlet of the receptacle. This may be of any proportion desired and is arranged to be sealed for shipment by a cover a. the margin of which is crimped over the edge of the flange. Preferably the edge of the flange is wired or rolled to form a false wire bead.

A pouring spout 5 is obliquely disposed in a central opening of a base 6 that has a lateral flange 7 arranged to frictionally engage with and fit the flange 3 when the spout is in pouring position, while it is likewise so disposed as to rest laterally in the flange below the plane of the lid 4 with the spout projecting into the body of the receptacle. Preferably the base is formed of one sheet of metal having a depressed circular portion 8 with outwardly inclined margin 9 that is inverted to produce the flange 7. In order to facilitate removal of the spout Specificationof Letters Eatent.

after the cover is taken off, the part 8 is not entirely cut away but is severed from the flange 9 and bent upwardly to form a finger pull 10' as well as to form the delivery opening in the spout.

In receptacles of suflicient size, a base 11 may be provided with a flange 12 that has a double bevel or taper so that when the spout is inverted the base seats itself in the pouring flange 13 of the receptacle, as indicated in Fig. 3. This construction is used where the receptacle is of sufficient size or where the angle of the spout 'on the base is such that the parts permit this construction. As a result of this arrangement, a receptacle is provided that is readily sealed for shipment and that when opened may be fitted to pour out the contents as desired, the union between the spout and the receptacle being such that the spout does not become displaced from ordinary use. It is of course feasible to have a cover in place of the sealing member 4 that may be pushed on or off as desired so that the spout may be reversed and the package re-sealed when necessary.

Obviously, changes in the details of construction may be made without departing from the spirit of the invention and I do not care to limit myself to any particular form or arrangement of parts.

hat I claim is 1. The combination with a receptacle having a pouring opening with an outwardly flared flange surrounding it, of a spout, a base obliquely disposed on the inner end of the spout and provided with an outer flange adapted to frictionally engage the opening flange to secure the spout in pouring position and to frictionally engage the flange to support the spout when inverted, a finger pull tongue forming a part of the spout base, and a cover to seal the opening, and inclose the inverted spout and base and engage said finger pull tongue to retain said spout base seated on the opening flange.

2. The combination of a receptacle having a pouring outlet with an outwardly flared flange encircling it, with a spout, a flared base on the inner end of the spout having an opening coincident with the spout opening formed by cutting out and bending up a finger pull tongue from the body of the so that the base of said spout is squarely base, a double eoned flange on the base seated on the flared flange of said receptacle. 10 adapted to engage the pouring outlet flange In testimony whereof I affix my signature frictionally in either pouring or inverted in presence of tWo Witnesses.
