E. C. STAPLES AND H. H. DEAN. EMERGENCY GASOLINE CAN.

IN V EN TOR5 A TTORNE Y UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

EDWARD C. `STAPLES AND HARRY H. DEAN', OF CANTON, OHIO.

EMERGENCY easouim GAN.

Speceatlon of Letters Patent.

Patented May 30,1922.

'To all whom t may concern:

Beit known that we, EDWARD C. STAPLES and HARRY H. DEAN, citizensf'of the United States, residing at Canton, inthe county of- -Stark and State of Ohio, have invented a new and useful Emergency Gasoline Can, of which the following is a specication.

This invention relates to. containers for gasoline and the like and particularly.. to a can for emergency use in. an automobile.

` The principal object of the invention is to provide a can that will be positively leak tight and air tight when the spout and handle are folded for storage but which becomes operative for pouring when the spout and handle are extended.

' Another object is the construction of a can of this class that may be readily folded to present a regular exterior, thereby permitting the said can to be conveniently packed in the-tool box or storage compartment of an automobile.

A further object is the proportioning of the said can so that it will be comparatively iat and may therefore be placedl in a shallow compartment, such for example as the stor" age space beneath an automobile seat.

In the drawing in which similar numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts;

Fig 1 is a side elevation, partly broken away to disclose the handle connections.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged section taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1 and looking in the direc` tion indicated by the arrow,'the spout being shown in the position indicated by the dotted lines 'in said Fig. 1.

3 is a detail face view of the reinforcin spider.

ig. 4, is a fragmentary plan view Iof one endof the v'can showing the manner of tting the discharge spout into the angular recess.

Fi 5 is an enlarged side view-of thev hand e showing the air vent in section.

Fig. Gis an4 end elevation of the handle. It very frequently happens that motorists will inadvertently allow the gasoline in the fuel tank of their automobile to become exhausted when drivingl and this often occurs. Ywhen the nearest point from which a new supply of gasoline may be'obtained is a con- 's designed to contain about one gallon of ue f The main portion 1 of the can will be constructed of heavy gan' e sheet metal and will 60 be` formed with a re ucedportion 2 at one end to provide a vertical, angular 'recess-4. In the side wall 5 of the recess is formed an aperture 6 which will preferably be hexagonal in shape and designed to receive asimilarly shaped shoulder 7 whichprojects from the face of a spider 8. A plurality of apertures 9 in the spider, permit the iiow ofv fuel therethrough and a square, central aperture y1() in the said spider, is `designed tofreoeive the squared portion of a bolt 11. A frusto conical thimble 12,v fits against the outer side of the wall of the can and is pro` vided with a central aperture 14 in its outer vwall and forces the large end of the thimble 12,1113ightly against the outer face of the' said wa suitable'material shown at 17 and 18 may be' inserted between the spider and inner wall and the thimble and outer wall respectively, or solder may be iowed around the base of the said thimble, to insure an absolutely leak proof joint. ,p

Fitting over the thimble 12jis a second frusto cone 19, against the outer end of which fits a washer 2O provided with a central aperture 21 to receive the bolt 11. A nut 22 is threaded on the outer extremity of the bolt 11 and forces the inner face of the cone 19 against'the outer face of the thimble 12 so as vto forma leak proof joint. A nip- 100 ple 24 extends'from one side of the cone 19 and is formedwith a passageway 25 which is designed to'register with the aperture 15 in the thimble when the said cone is rotated on the thimble. A spout 26 is fitted to the 105' bayonet slpt 29 designed to lit over a pin 30 110 in the spo1t`26, is employed when the aperture into which the contents of the can m i Washers or gaskets of lead or other to be poured is small, as for instance` the filling aperture of the ordinary vacuum feed tank em loyed on automobiles. It will be obviousrom the foregoing that the spider 8 will form a reinforcement for the 4wall of the can at the point where the spout is attached, thereby producing a very solid cons struction for the said spout and valve there` for. It will also be seen that should wear occur between the inner face of the conical member 19 and the outer face of the thim` ble 12, permitting a leak at this point, by tightening the nut 22 the two faces may be forced tightly together again. v

In the upper side of our can is formed a. depression 35 and within the said depression is secured a pair of lugs 36 and 37. Each of these lugs is provided with a reduced, threaded portion 38 which projects through the bottom of the depression 35 and receives a nut 39, by which it is secured. Thelug 36 is provided with a horizontal, cylindrlcal aperture 40 which is designed to receive one end of a rod 41, which rod passes through the lug and extends from the outside thereof, the said extended portion 42 being s uare as shown in Fig. 6. The lug 37 is li ewise provided with a horizontal aperture 44, the said aperture being tapered toward its outer end. The end of the rod 41 opposite the one above referred to, is

tapered at 45 to .fit within the aperture in the lug 37 and the outer extremity of the rod at this end is threaded beyond the said lug and receives a ywasher 46 which is interposed between the outer` side of the lug and one end of a handle 47. A square aperture 448 is formed in each end of the handle, one of which apertures fits upon the square portion 42 of the rod. The threaded portion vat the opposite end of the rod passes through the other aperture in the handle and receives a nut 49, which when tightened against thc handle, draws the ta ered portion of the rod into close contact w1th the face of the aperture 44. A vertical opening or port 5() is formed centrally through the lug 87 and a similar port 51 is formed in the tapered portion 45 of the rod 41 and is designed toI register with the port 50 when the handle 47 is in upright position. The purpose of the said port is to form an air vent to admit air to the can when the spout 26 is lowered for pouring. It will be obvious that when the handle 47 ,is swung down to lie horizontally 'within the depression 35, the port 51 will be positioned horizontally also and at right the f angles to the port 50, thereby closing air vent and preventing a flow of liquid from the spout 26.

At the end of the can opposite the spout will be assumed that the can is filled with fuel. By raising the handle 47 to upright posltionto lift the' can, the ports 50 and 51 lwill be made to register, thus opening the air inlet. The can will now be placed above the receptacle designed to receive the fuel and the spout 26 lowered to direct the flow of fuel from the can intothe filling opening of the receptacle. As the spout is lowered, the conical member 19 will be rotated on the thimble 12, bringing the port 25 to register with the port 15.l The liquid will then discharge through the spout 26, air being admitted through the ports 50 and 51.v

Should it be desired to fill the vacuum feed tank, such as is commonly employed on an automobile, the small nozzle 28 is attached to the spout26 for the reason that the filling opening in the said tank is of small diameter. v

The bolt 11 will preferably be formed with a flattened side 4at its outer extremity and the washer 20 will have the aperture 21 therein shapedto fit the saidv fiat side of the bolt, thus preventing the washer from turning and loosening the nut 22.

Having now described our invention, what We claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

A fluid container comprising a rectangular body ortion, a recess formed 4in said body portion, a discharge aperture located within said recess, a spider adjacent the inner side of the wall of said recess and aligned with Said discharge aperture, a bolt projecting through said aperture and held by said spider, an open ended thimble litting against the outer side of the wall of said recess and encircling said discharge aperture, the said bolt extending through said thimble, a nut threaded on said bolt land tightened against the outer end of said thimble, a port formed in said thimble and vcommunicating with the interior of said can through said discharge aperture, a conical member rotatably mounted upon said thimble, a pouring spout carried by said conical member and a passageway through said spout and conlcal member arranged to register with said port when the conical member is rotated.

In testimony that we claim the above, We

subscribed our names. EDWARD C. STAPLES. HARRY H. DEAN.
