ROBERT STEWART, or nnw izoax, my.

.nisrnnsrne APPLICATOR.

Application filed May 27,

The present invention relates to a'di'spensing a pl'icator oithe general character disclose inmy prior Patent No. 1,646,324 of October 18, 1927; "In accordancewith the present .invention the construction of the device has'been materially simplified and the cost of manufacture greatly reduced. This has been accomplished in the first place by using a conventional bottle for a container, and in the second place by using a cork and cover to cooperatively define an outlet and closure instead of defining a stop outlet in the container proper.

Objects of the invention are to provide a dispensing applicator primarily designed for use in connection with containers of hair tonic or the like which is equipped with means for controlling the discharge of its liquid contents, and with means for applying the discharge contents, preferably insaging tits thereon.

Other objects of the invention are to provide a dispensing applicator which will inv sure an efiective seal against evaporation or accidental spilling of the contents of the container whenthe device is not in use.

Still further objects are to provide a device of this characterwhich may be conveniently manually manipulated to control the outlet and which will combine simplicity of construction withruggedness and durability in use. With the above noted and other objects in view, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction and combinations and arrangements of parts, as will be more fully hereinafter. set forth and pointed out in the claims. The invention may be more fully understood fromthe following description in connection with the accompanying drawings, wherein-- Fig. 1 is a view in side elevation of a device embodying the invention.

Fig. 2 is a top lan view thereof.

Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional detail on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a View partly in section and partly in elevation, showing themanner in which the outlet opening is sealed by rotating the cap.

In the drawings I have used the numeral 10'to designate an ordinary bottle provided with a neck 11, and an outwardly projecting flange or lip 12. This bottle or other container carries the liquid to be dispensed, and

' rubber.

1927.. Serial No. 194,760.

fitted into the bottleneck isfa closure 13 preferably of rubber, having an outlet assageway 14 extending "therethrough; he body ofthecork lies substantially flush with the mouth of the bottle, but the material aroundthe out-let passageway defines a flexible rubber neck 14" projecting above the outer surface of the cork and adapted for disposition in an opening 15 formed in a rubber cap 16. The latter includes depending flange portions 17 embracing the bottle neck, and if desired grooved at 18 for the reception of the lip 12. To facilitate rotation of the cap 17, the latter may be provided with ribs or other convenient hand grips 19.

The outlet passage 14 and the opening 15 are eccentrically disposed relatively to the axis of the bottle, so that rotation of the cap serves eitherto expose the outlet opening 14, or to crush and fold the nipple 14 over, as'seen in Fig. 4.

The nipple 14 being of relatively thin rubber immediately springs to the position of Fig. 3 when aligned with the opening 15, and may be readily distorted and folded over as seen in Fig. 4 when the cap has been rotated to move the opening 15 out of align,

ment with the passage 14. By virtue of this construction a very effective seal is obtained.

Preferably, a number of massaging tits or equivalent devices 20 project from the face of the cap 16, and may be used for rubbing the hair tonic or other material from the bottle into the hair after the material has been dispensed by shaking the bottle.

It is to be understood that while I have referred to the container as a bottle, it may be in the nature of a can or other device, and the closure and cap are not necessarily of metal. construction, and the plug 13 might be of cork.

In fact various changes and alterations might be made in the general form and ar- The cap for instance, might be of rangementof the parts described without.

departing from the invention. Hence I do not wish to limit myself to the details set "forth, butshall consider myself atliberty to make such changes and alterations as fairly fall within the spirit and scope of the appended claims.

I claim:

1. In combination, a container, a plug fitting within the mouth of the container and having an outlet passage therein, a closure I cap rotatably mounted on the container and covering the plug, and having an opening therein adapted to be selectively aligned with the passage in the plug by rotating the cap, the cap and plug including means acting to mechanically seal the passage when the cap is in passage-closing position,'said means comprising a hollow flexible nipple on the plug encircling the'outer end of the passage, and folded over by the cap. y
