DISPENSING DEVICE.
Application filed December 6, 1820. Serial No. 428,470.
To. all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, MORRIS C. Essex, a citizen of the United States, residin Cleveland Heights, in the county of u ahoga and State of Ohio, have invente a certain new and useful Improvement 1n Dispensin Devices, of which the following is a full, c ear, and exact description, refer: ence being had to the accompanying drawfly invention relates to a device for dispenslng toilet compounds in powdered form, such as soap, shaving powder, tooth powder, or other commodities of like nature which it is desired to deliver in limited or given quantities.
The objects of the inventionare to provide a neat and compact device that may be readily attached to a 'wall or other supporting surface and which is particularly convenient of'use; which is positive of operation; and into which a fresh supply of material may be easily introduced.
It is my present intention to promote the use of my device for the dispensing of powdered shaving soap particularly, and to place the device in homes and hotels, the soap is to be supplied in containers which art of the device and which may be purc ased bv the user on the open market. When the device is used in public washrooms or hotel bathrooms, it is especiall desirable to incorporate means which wi prevent the soap container from being removed from the device except by authorized persons. 4
It is a further object of my invention, therefore to include in the device means for lockin the container against removal,
To acilitate the attachment of the container to the device without danger of spilling the contents, I proposev to so construct the device that it may be inverted, the container attached to the device when the container is in upright position, and then the device returned to its former position to invert the container; and to the end of locln'ng the container against withdrawal from the device I referably employ an automatic means wllich assumes effective" osition when the container is inverted. I
rther provide means for lockingthe device against inversion .so thatthe receptacle cannot be returned to upright position,
which latter means is under the control of a key or similar instrument.
To these ends my invention may be defined generally as consisting of the combination and arrangement of parts set forth in the claims annexed hereto and illustrated in the drawing accompanying and forming a part hereof and wherein similar reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the views. I
In the drawing, Fig. 1 is a front view of the device; Fig. 2 is a central vertical section through the same; and Fig. 3 is a transverse vertical section substantially on the center line of the hopper, the receptacle or container being omitted to reveal the means for locking the container against removal.
A base 1 is adapted to be attached to a wall or other su porting surface by means of screws 2, an the front of the base is provided with a circular cavity 3 in the center of which is situated a threaded stud 4 that is preferably formed integral with the base. 'A sleeve member 5 is internally threaded at its rear end for application to the stud 4 and has a circular flange 6 that fits within the recess 3 of the base and conceals the screws 2. A conical sha ed ho per 10 rises from the forward end 0 the eeve member 5 and at its upper end is provided with an internal thread 11 for cooperation with the threads 12 on the neck of a suitable receptacle or container 13. This container is preferably in the form of a bottle; and when not used as a part of the dispensing device may be closed by a suitable screw cap of ordinary form (not shown). Somewhat to the rear of the vertical plane of the hopper 10, a spout l5 depends from the sleeve member 5, and a plun er 16- occupies the reduced forward end of t e bore of said member. A collar 17 of the plun er is arranged to engage the shoulder t at separates the enlarged portion from the reduced portion of the bore of member 5 to limit the forward movement of the plunger, and
a s rin 20 that is inter osed between the col ar 1 and the front ace of the stud 4 tends to. retain the plunger forwardly. When the plunger is in its forward position, an anular groove 21 thereof registers with theoutlet opening 22 of the hopper 10 and receives a (fiuantity of material therefrom; and when t e plunger is pushed rearwardly against the action of spring 20, the groove 21 is brought into re lster with the spout 15 so that the aforesaid quantity of material may drop through the spout. To prevent the material from 010 ging or arching within the converging en of the hopper, I provide an agitator 23 which projects upwardly from the plunger 16 and occupies a position inside the hop er. 'Ihis agitator is reciprocated upon eac actuation of the plunger 16,
and, in the present instance, it consists of an inverted conical spiral spring.
For the purpose of retainingthe member 5 in a position to hold the hopper 10 upright, as illustrated in the drawings, I pros vie a sprin latch 25 which is in .the nature of a lea sprin that is supported upon the stud 4 and the Iower end of which protrudes through a notch 26 in the flange which surrounds the cavity 3. The flange 6 of the member 5 is also rovided with a notch 27 which is occupie by the spring latch, 25 when the parts are in o erative relation. I have shown a screw 30 t readed through the lower end of the spring latch and as bearing against the adjacent part of the base 1 so that" the latch may be held against retraction from the notch 27 of the flange 6 except when the screw is sufiiciently withdrawn from the latch to admit of such action. The head of the screw is preferably made in some special form, as triangular in cross section as indicated at 31, for the application of a key or the like.
As will be seen upon reference to Fig. 3,
- a gravity dpawl or latch 35 is pivoted within the threa d portion of the hopper 10, and when the member 5 is turned upon the stud 4 and the hopper inverted, the gravity pawl or latch drops into alignment with a thread of the hopper. When in this position, therefore, a receptacle 13 may be screwed into the hopper, and when it assumes its final position therein the rear end of the thread on the neck of the container passes beyond the latch 35 so that when the hopper is returnedto upright position and the container is inverted above the hopper so as to deliver its contents to the hopper, the latch 35 drops behind the end of the thread and prevents the receptacle from being unscrewed.
The operation of the device is obvious.
aaeaevo the member 5 is returned to its former position when the spring latch 25 will snap into the notch 27 of the flange 6. The spring latch is then looked in this position by settin down on the screw 31.
IIaving thus described my invention, what I claim is:
1. In a dispensing device of the character set forth, the combination of an invertible support, a container removably supported thereby, and a lock for securing the container against removal from the support when the support is in normal position, said lock being rendered inefl'ective by the inversion of the support.
