w. e. KENDALL. SPOUT FOR RECEPTACLES.

QPOU'E F59? RECEPTAGLES.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, lVILLIAM G. KENDALL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Newark, in the county of Essex and tjtate of New-Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Spouts for Receptacles, of which the following is a specification.
My present invention relates to new and useful improvements in spouts for recep tacles, the primary object of my invention being the provision of a spout and closure cap structure which may be constructed for use. upon receptacles of various characters and which may be applied to receptacles without the necessity of any threaded conceptacle.
nection between the cap, spout and re- A furtlier object of my invention consists in providing a spout structure of the above.
described character including an innerclosure cap carrying a spout which is extensible from or retractable into. the receptacle and an outer closure cap applicable to the first cap and to the spout when the latter-is retracted to seal both the inner cap and the spout. v i
. A still further object of my invention is to so arrange the engaging portions or" the inner cap and spout that when the latter is in extended positiomit will be securely held against any likelihood ofdisplacement.
With these and other objects in view, my invention'will be more fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and then specifically pointed out in the claims which are attached to and form a part of this application. In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view or" my improved spout structure appl ed to a conventional form of oil. can, a
portion of the can being broken away to show the construction of its flexible bottom; Fig. 2 is a fragmentary, central vertical sectional view taken through the top of the can, and the closure caps showing the spout in retracted position; Fig. 3 is a corresponding view taken through the top of the can and inner closure cap and through the spout which in this figure is in extended position.
Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the following description andjindi cated in all theyiews of the. drawings by the same reference characters. 1
Although I do not wish in any way to limit myself to the application of my spout Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed July 13, 1915. Serial No. 39,692.
mechanism to oil cans of the type disclosed, t being applicable to receptacles of various characters, I have, for the sake of clearness,
illustrated it in connection with an oil can having a cylindrical body 10, the bottom 11 of which is formed of relatively resilient or flexible sheet metal provided with a pcripheral bead '12 to permit ready buckling of the bottom, under pressure, whereby flow of oil or other liquid from the can may be facilitated. The top 13 of the can is provided centrally with the usual discharge opening surrounded by a downwardly depending annular fiange 14: terminating at its lower end in an inwardly directed stop shou der 15. This flange is preferably of somwhat less internal diameter adjacent its lower end than at its upper end to properly engage the inner closure cap 16, which cap forms a portion of my present. invention. This inner cap 16 includes a body portion 17 having an upstanding peripheral flange 18 terminating at its upper edge in an outwardly and laterally directed annular stop shoulder 19. This inner closure is so proportioned that its annular flange 18 will frictionally engage the flange 14 of the can top when the inner closure is forced into the position shown in Fig. 2 with its body portion resting upon the shoulder 15. and its stop shoulder 19 engaging the upper face of thetop of the can. The inner closure 16 is formed centrally with a downwardly directed flaring annular flange 20 terminating at its lower end in an outwardly and laterally directed peripheral stop shoulder 21,
inner closure, is a spout 22 preferably in the a form of a tapered seamless tube, the larger end of which extends into the can through the flange 20. This tube, adja ent its outer smaller end, carries a disk 23 which serves as a stop to limit the inward movement of the spout, the disk being so proportioned as to engage the upper face of the body portion of the inner closure with the upper end oi the spout spaced somewhat above such portion of the closure. The spout 22, at its lower end, carries a thimble portion 24 which tapers from its lower to its upper end to -frictionally seat within the flange '20 of the inner closurewhen the spout is drawn extended position and which terminates at its lower edge in an outwardly directed peripheral stop shoulder '25 adapted to engage against the stop shoulder 21 of the inner closure when the spout is extended. The outer face of the thimble 24 is lightly scored, corrugated or otherwise roughened, as shown at 26, to insure close frictional engagement between it and the inner the flange 20 and at the same time not per mit leakage of liquid from the can between the thimble and flange. Furthermore, the interengagement of the stop shoulders 21 and 25 will prevent such leakage.
In order to provide means for preventing all escape ofrliquid from the can 10 when the latter is not in use, I provide an outer closure, indicated as a whole by the numeral 27. This outer closure includes a body portion 28 surrounded by an upstanding peripheral flange 29,tapering from its upper to its lower end and terminating at its free end in an outwardly directed annular stop shoulder 30;- This outer closure is formed with a central opening 31 in order that the spout may project through it when it is applied to the inner closure and the outer closure is so proportioned that when its body portion engages the upper face of the stop disk 23 of the spout, its flange will frictionally engage the flange 18 or" the inner clo sure and its shoulder engage the stop shoulder 19 of the inner closure. A cylindrical bonnet 32 surrounds the opening 31 in the body of the outer closure 27', being closed at its upper end and inserted in this bonnet is a packin disk 33 of cork, impregnated paper or other suitable material adapted to receive and seal the upper open end of the spout 22 when the outer closureis forced in place.
From the foregoing description, the op eration of my improved spout for receptacles will be readily understood and no de scription of its use is deemed necessary. It should be noted, however, that because of the relatively elongated engagement between the thimble 24: and flange 20 of the inner *closure, the spout, when extended, is firmly held against retraction and can be retracted only by rectly in axial alinement with the spout. Again, when the spout is in retracted posi tion, all rattling about of the spout within the can is prevented because of the clamping of the stop. disk 23 between the inner and outer closures or caps of the receptacle;
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new it;
1. The combination with a receptacle including a top having an opening surrounded by a downwardly extending and tapering annular flange terminating in an inwardly directed peripheral stop shoulder, of an inner closure including a body adapted to seat on the shoulder and an upwardly flared annular flange frictionally engaging the flange face of flange, said thimble being adapted to :t'ric gage Within the flange of c'eptaclesincluding an inner considerable pressure exerted (ii-- flange to engage the ,too
