DISPENSING DEVICE.

APPLICATION FILED MAY7, 1921.

1,405,357, Patented Jan. 31, 1922.

' INVENTOR L. W ZFf'A/YK WITNESSES A TTORNEYS LEVERETT W. TIFFANY, 0F WINSTED, CONNECTICUT.

Application filed May 7, 1921.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, Lnvnnn'r'r W. TIFFANY, a citizen of the United States, and resident of lVinstechin the county of Litchfield and State of Connecticut, have invented a new and Improved Dispensing Device, of which the following is a full, clear,,and exact de: scripti-on, I

My invention relates to a dispensing device, and aims to provide an article of this nature, more particularly adapted for use in connection with the dispensing of pins, paper clips and similar articles.

It is well appreciated in connection with pins, paper clips and articles of a similar nature that it has been customary to house these articles within any suitable type of receptacle. When one of the articles was desired it was necessary to open the receptacle and to remove one of the massed articles therefrom, which was liable to injure the fingers, aside from the fact that in the instance of paper clips, these devices often tended to hang together.

Thus my present invention aims to pro vide a dispensing device which may be utilized in connection with pins, paper clips and articles of a similar character, and by means of which a certain amount of these will be instantly available to the user.

A further object of this invention is the construction of a device of this character which will prevent any injury to the fingers of the user.

Further objects of my invention will appear in the annexed specification taken in connection with the drawings, which latter present one practical embodiment thereof. and in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of my device.

Figure 2 is an end view thereof.

Figure 3 is a sectional plan view of the device, and

Figure 4 is a transverse sectional view.

In these views it will be seen that the reference numeral 5 indicates the body of a receptacle of any desired character, and material, which is preferably provided with a removable cover 6.

The receptacle also has provided a centrally extending pin 7 which serves as an axis of rotation for a spirally arranged strip of material such as paper 8, which is dis posed about the pin 7. Secured to the strip DISPENSING DEVICE.

Serial No. 467,748.

8 are pins 9, or paper clips 10, as has been indicated in dotted lines in'Figure 1. One end of the receptacle 5 is formed with an opening of a height suflicient to permit of the passage of the strip 8 holding the articles to be dispensed. A preferably U- shaped strip 11 is slidably mounted within the receptacle 5 and one of its ends projects he- TENT OFFICE;

yond the body of the same, and it isto be noted that this strip provides a. space sufficient for the accommodation of the strip 8-,v together with the articles carried thereby,-

and that further, any desirable type of finger engaging elements, such as a ring 12 is secured to the outer end of the strip 11, to permit of its being projected, a movement beyond its proper limit being prevented by means of the inwardly turned end 13 thereof. It is also to be noted in this connection that the receptacle 5 may conveniently be formed with an inwardly turned integral portion 5 which overlies one of the inner faces of the arms of the U shaped strip 11 and acts as a guide for the same thus preventing any accidental jambing of the parts. Thus an operator may freely reciprocate the strip 11 within the receptacle 5 by means of the ring 12, or other element provided for this purpose, and it will be obvious than any movement of the strip 11 will result in the strip 8 being moved with it, incident to the frictional engagement existing betweenthese two strips. p

In operating a dispensing device, the strip 11 is pulled from its housed position in the position illustrated in Figures 1 and 3, and this will obviously carry a portion of the strip 8 through the opening of the receptacle, the length of such latter strip corresponding to the amount of movement of the strip 11'. The pins or clips may now be removed from the strip 8, and it will be obvious that the empty strip may now be pulled desirable article might be associated with the strip 8, and other numerous modifications of structure might readily be resorted to Without in the least departing from the spirit of my invention, which I claim as:

1. A dispensing device including a receptacleformed With an opening, a spirally arranged strip Within said receptacle, said strip being adapted to carry articles to be dispensed, and a secondary strip adapted. to frictionally engage said first named strip for permitting a Withdrawal of a predetermined amount of said last named strip through the opening of said receptacle.

2. A dispensing device including a receptacle formed with an opening a spirally arranged strip Within said receptacle, said strip being adapted to carry articles to be dispensed, a secondary strip adapted to trio tionally engage said first named strip for permitting a Withdrawal of a predetermined amount of said last named strip through the opening or" said receptacle, and

means for limiting the movement. of said last named strip 3. A dispensing device including a receptacle formed With an opening, a spirally arranged strip Within said receptacle,- said strip being adapted to carry articles to be dispensed, a secondary strip adaptedto frictionally engage said first named strip for permitting a Withdrawal of a predetermined amount of said last named strip through the opening of said receptacle, and means for guiding said last named strip.

4c. A dispensing device including a receptacle formed With an opening, a strip adapted to receive articles to be dispensed arranged Within said receptacle a secondary U shaped strip slidably arranged in the opening of said receptacle, and being adapted to embrace said first named strip, and means for permitting of a movement of said last named strip.
