HAROLD H. OZANNE, OF EMMETSBRG, IOWA., ASSIGNO 0F ONE-THIRD TO LEONARD VAUGHAN AND ONE-THIRD T0 LAURENS D. POTTER, BOTH 0F EMMETSBURG, IOWA.

DISPENSING NIPPLE. g

Application filed July 30, 1923. Serial No. 654,636.

To all whom it may concern.'

Be it known that I, HAROLD H. OzANNrnfa Citizen of the' United States, and a resident of Emmetsburg, in the count'y of Palo Alto and State of Iowa, have invented a certain new and useful Dispensing Nipple, of which the following is a'specification.

The object of my invention is to` provide a dispensing nipple especially adapted for use in dispensing of tooth paste, shaving cream, glue or any other semi-liquid material ordinarily packed in tube containers.

More'particularly, my object relates to a nipple adapted to be secured to the threaded end of an ordinarytube container used for tooth paste or the like wherein the contents ot the tube container may be dispensed through the nipple without the necessity of removing a cover member and yet when the nipple is not engaged the opening therein will be closed and the entire nipple will,

serve as a cover for the container.

Still a further object is to provide an applicator portion on the nipple wherein the commodity dispensed from the container may be applied to a tooth brush or the like, depending upon the` commodity dispensed.

Still a further object is Lto provide a laty surface on two of the sides of the nipple, ar-

ranged at right angles to the opening line or slot in the nipple so that when the nipple is engaged between the lingers, there will be assurance that the opening or slot will spread to open position for permitting the contents With these and other objects in view, my invention consists in the construction, arrangement and combination of the various parts of my device, whereby the objects contemplated are attained, as hereinafter more fully set forth, pointed out in my claims, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure l is a perspective view of a tube container with my improved dispensing nipple shown attac ed thereto.

Figure 2 is top, plan view of the dispenslng nipple.

Figures 3, 4, 5, and 6 are perspective views of slightly different forms of dispensing nipples.

Figure 7 is a sectional View taken on line 7--7 of Figure 3.

Figure 8 is a sectional view taken on line 8-8 of Figure 3; and

Figure 9 is a sectional View of a nipple portion shown in Figure 8 with the exception that the bulb portion thereotis shown with a greater capacity.

used the reference numeral 10 to indicate generally a tube container which is made of comparatively thin metal which has its lower end bent and crimped over, as at 11, for forming a closure for one end of the containe'r.

The. opposite end of the'tube container is provided with a cone shaped portion l2 terminating into a neck 13. rlhe neck 18 is screw threaded for ordinarily receiving a cover member or cap. The parts just described are of the ordinary construction of container used in connection with dispensing of semi-liquid materials, such as tooth paste, shaving cream, vanishing cream or the like.

My invention consists ot a nipple member A preferably formed et rubber. The nipple member A is secured to a cap member 14, which is provided with a central opening having screw threads 15. The screw threa ed portion 15 of the cap 14 is designed to coact with the screw threaded neck on the container 10.

The opening in thevcap 14is contracted, as at 16, so that it 'will require some force on the container 10 to move the contents thereof into the nipple A as will hereinafter be explained.

The cap 14 isprovided with a knurled nger engaging bead 17 and is also provided with an annular groove 1`8. The groove 18 is designed to receive the lower end 0f the nipple A so that the iange 19 formed on the cap 14, when bent over, will substantially grip the nipple A for holding the nipple A and the cap member 14 together.

The parts just described are clearly illustrated in Figures 7 and 8 of the drawings.

The nipple A is provided with a pair of flat sides 20 so that it may be properly engaged between two of the fingers of the hand. The nipple A as shown in Figures 1,3, 7, and 8 of the drawings is arranged with an upwardly extending applicator part 21. The applicator part 21 is provided with a slot or opening 22, which runs lengthwise or at right angles to the Hat sides 20.

The tube 10 when rolled up or pressure applied thereto, will force the contents therein into the nipple A. When pressure In the accompanyingdrawings, I have isi exerted against the Hat sides 20 of the nipple, it will cause the slot or opening 22 to spread out, as shown in Figure 2 of the dra-wings, wherein the contents from within the nipple will be expelled.`

'lhe upwardly extending part 21 serves as an applicator for applying the ribbon ot' paste or shaving cream to any suitable brush or the like.

As soon as pressure is relieved from the nipple 20 the parts will assume the position shown in the drawings atwhich time the opening 22 will practically be sealed and the contents from within the container will not pass out.

lVhen it is desired to fill the nipple A, then the tube 10 is rolled up or pressure applied thereto.

In Figure 4 of the drawings, I have shown the nipple similar to the nipple shown in Figure 3 with the exception that the applicator part 21 is omitted. In Figure f1 of the drawings, the slot or opening 22 is formed in the upper end of the nipple.

In Figure 5 of the drawings, I have shown the applicator 21 as inclined to one side and in Figure G of the drawings, I have shown the slot 22 shown in one side of the nipple proper.

In Figure 9 of the drawings, I have shown the nipple as made of comparatively thin material so that the contents placed within the nipple may be more than the style of nipple shown in Figures 4 and 8.

It may be mentioned that the style of nipple may be varied somewhat so that if the same is used in connection with tooth paste, there will be a suicient amount of tooth paste within the nipple for one using."

The arrangement of the flat sides 2O insures the proper engagement of the nipple so that the slot 22 will be opened for permitting the contents within the nipple to be expelled.

The nipple is formed of such material as will permit it to normally be closed and to require a positive engagement before it will open and permit the contents from the nipple to be expelled.

My improved dispensing nipple may be used as an attachment or may be sold with the tube of tooth paste or the like originally.

The use of m dispensing nipple eliminates the necessity ot' removing the cover or cap from the tube whenever it is desired to get solne of the contents from the container.

Some changes may be made in the censtruction and arrangement of the vario'us parts of my invention, without departing rom the real spirit and purpose of my invention and it is my intention to cover by my claims, any modified forms of structure of use of mechanical e uivalents which may be reasonably included within their scope.

I claim as my invention:

1. In combination with a tube container having screw threaded neck, a dispensing ni'pple, said dispensing nipple comprising a cap member having a contracted central opening therein, a portion of said opening being screw threaded for engagement with the screw threaded neck on said tube container, a pliable nipple portion on said cap member, said nipple portion having a pair of Hat sides and a slit opening wherein the contents within the nipple portion may be expelled through said slit opening by engagement of the flat sides, said flat sides being arranged at right angles to the slit opening.

2. In combination with a tube container having screw threaded neck, a dispensing nipple, said dispensing nipple comprising a cap member having a contracted central opening therein, a portion of said opening being screw threaded for engagement with the screw threaded neck on said tube container, a pliable nipple portion having a pair of flat sides and a slit opening arranged at right angles to the Hat sides wherein the contents within the nipple portion may be expelled through said slit opening by pressure on the fiat sides and said pliable nipple returning to normal position when the pressure is withdrawn from the sides thereof.

Des Moines, Iowa, J'uly 17, 1923.
