CHESTER A. DE LA BAR, OF GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN.

OIL-CAN'.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Sept. 12, 1916.

Application filed July 19, 1915. Serial No. 40,669.

To @Zlio/1,0m t may 0on00rn.'

Be it known that l, CHESTER A. DE LA BAR, a citizen of the United States, residing at Grand Rapids, in -the county of Kent and State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Oil-Cans, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to improvements in oil-cans, and more particularly to the means employed for securing the caps used for effecting a closure of the inlet and discharge openings, so as to prevent the loss or misplacement of the same.

A further object of the invention resides in the provision of means whereby the closure caps are yieldingly held in position over the inlet and discharge openings so that they may be easily and quickly removed and replaced, and to provide a simple structure for the purpose stated which is easily applied, efl'ective in operation, and cheap of manufacture.

With these and other objects in view, the present invention consists in the combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter more fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and particularly pointed out in the claims, it being understood that minor changes may be made in the details of construction without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.

In the accompanying drawings which show the preferred embodiment of my invention: Figure 1 is a top or plan view of a receptacle embodying the features of my invention. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the upper end of a receptacle, showing the closure caps seated in full lines and unseated in dotted lines. Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the cap for the inlet opening.

Referring to the drawings, the receptacle 5 is provided with the usual spout 6, for discharging the contents therefrom, and which is hereinafter referred to as the discharge opening, and a flanged in let opening 7, used for filling the receptacle.

Mounted upon the receptacle between the discharge and inlet openings, is a bracket 8, comprising the leg members 9, and a crossrod 10, connecting the upper ends of the legs. The means employed for securing and holding the caps in place consists, preferably, of a single strand of spring wire 11, which is doubled upon itself in spaced relation, with its bight portion 12, extending slightly beyond. the inlet opening. The opposite members thereof are then coiled near their ends around the cross-rod 10, of the bracket, and the ends 13 extend to a point at opposite sides of and adjacent the central portion of the spout. vWhen thus formed and mounted, the spring member has a downward tension at the free ends of its oppositely .extending arms. A closure cap 14., is adapted to fit over the end of the dis* charge opening, and is pivotally mounted at the end of and between the spaced arms of a U-shaped link member 15, the ends of which are in turn hingedly connected at 1G, with the ends of the spring arms 13. The spring arms 13, owing to the downward tension thereof, yieldingly hold the cap in place, and permit same to be easily removed by raising the cap against the tension of said arms. The cap is shown in and out of position by full and dotted lines in Fig. 2. The closure cap 17, for the inlet opening, is slidingly connected with and disposed between tlie opposite parallel members 18, of the spring. A handle 19, consisting of a looped wire, has its ends extending down the sides of the cap and bent so as to pass around the spring members, thus connecting the cap to the spring members and allowing the same to freely slide thereon. The bight portion of the spring, indicated at 12, limits the movement of the cap in one direction, and the bracket supporting the spring limits its movement in the opposite direction, so that at no time is the cap detached from its connections, and the danger of loss or misplaceinent thereof is obviated. In order to remove the cap, the same is raised against the tension of the spring until it clears the flange of the opening, when it is shifted to one side and allowed to rest upon the top of the receptacle, as indicated by dotted lines in Fig. 1. The cap is thus entirely out of the way, and as the bight portion of the spring passes around the flange of the opening, access to the opening is entirely unobstructed. Either cap may thus be easily and quickly removed or replaced, and as they are never wholly detached from their connections, they cannot become lost or misplaced.

Having thus described my what is claimed is:

1. The combination with. a receptacle having inlet and discharge openings, of closure caps for said openings, a spring invention,

Y having an inlet opening, of a spring mem ber mounted thereon and having a downward tensiomand Ya cap for said opening having connection with and slidable upon said spring member to permit same to be raised'from its seat and bodily shifted to one side of the opening.

3. The combination with a receptacle `having Vinlet and discharge openings, of a spring member mounted thereon having oppositely eXtendingarm's, a cap for the discharge opening hingedly connected with the spring arm extending in one direction, and a cap for the inletopening having a sliding connection with the oppositely directed arm, whereby said cap may be bodily shifted to one side of said opening.

4. The combination with a receptacle having inlet and discharge openings, of a spring member composed of a wire strand bent in spaced parallel relation, its opposite Vlegs coiled around a bracket mounted be CHESTER A. DE LA BAR.
