DEPOSITORY DEVICE Application led September 26, 1928. Serial No. 308,515.

This invention relates to va device particularly adapted for use by banks or the like to enable depositors to safely deposit sums of money or valuables after closing hoursof the bank or upon holidays, when ordinary deposit cannot be made. l

It has become customary to provide, for the purpose offpermitting depositsafter bank hours or on holidays, receptacles within the bank in which deposits may be made through chutes extending through the outer walls. In order to prevent tampering with such chutes in an attempt to reach the deposits, devices have been provided at the entrance to the chutes preventing access thereto except for legitimate purposes. One of such devices is disclosed in my prior Patent No.

1,57 6,125, dated March 9, 1926. This device consists of a rotary member of U-shape which in one position is arranged to receive the deposit and which then may be turned to a discharging position so that the deposit may drop therefrom into the chute. In this device, direct access to the chute by one on the outside of the building is prevented.

The object of the present invention is the provision of a rotary depository device of this character which will prevent carelessness of the depositor in ascertaining whether the proper discharge of the contents has been made. Specifically, it is the object of the present device to provide mechanism which will necessitate, after turning of the rotary receptacle to discharging position, a reversal of movement to bring the receptacle back to charging position prior to locking or removal of the keyby the depositor, so that he may ascertain whether a complete and properdischarge has been made.

In the accompanying drawings:

Fig. 1 is a front elevation showing the appearance of the depository device from the outside of the bank. v

Fig. 2 is asection taken through the aXis of the rotary member on line 2-2 of Fig. 3.

Fig. 3 is a sectional elevation of the mechanism which accomplishes the object of the present invention.

Fig. 4 is a view similar to Fig. 3 showing Y the mechanism in a different operative position.

Fig. 5 is a transverse section taken substantially on linepg5-5 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 6 is a fragmentary sectional view 4(i5 taken on line 6 6 of Fig. 4. n The improved device is similar in many respects to the depository device disclosed in my application Ser. N o. 308,514, filed Sept.l 26, 1928, to which reference is hereby made for complete disclosure of and claims directed to l'various broad features of the present device.

Similarly to the device disclosed in the application referred to, the present structure comprises a casing 2 secured to a face plate 4 provided withan entrance opening 6. This casing is provided with a sloping eXit opening 8 communicatingwith a suitable chute adapted to carry deposits into a vault in the '10` interior ofthe building. The casing may be Y enclosed in a concrete or other suitable structure, as is customary'in devices of this character.

. '.Suitably mounted in bearings 10, pref- 75 erably of an anti-friction type, are trunnionsV 12 carried by kcylinder heads 14 and 16 secured to flanges on a rotary receptacle 18, provided with a receiving space 2O therein. The rotary receptacle is provided with an out- 80 wardly .extending knurled flange 22 which maybe grasped by a depositor to rotate the Y receptacle". Interiorly ofthe shell;like`struc ture comprising thereceptacle `is an insert of non-burnable, hardened metal lsuch as de- 85 yscribed inthe application referred to. Suitable burglar alarm wi'res 26 may be included within the receptacle.

The left-hand cylinder head 14 is provided with anaperture 28 .into which a bolt 30, slid-M0 ably mounted in the casing, is adapted toenter to lock the cylinder in its discharging position. Bolt 30 is arranged tobe actuated by a lever 32 mounted on a spindle extending inwardly from a ,lock 34 adapted to be actu- 95 ated by a key. Lock V34 is of the well-known type preventing removal of the key unless bolt 30 is in position locking the receptacle.

Rotatably journalled coaXially with the receptacle is a 'plate 36 provided `with twoI 100 ratchet teeth 38 and 40, shown in Figs. 3 and 4. Cooperating with these ratchet teeth is a pawl 42 pivoted at 44 to the left hand cylinder head and urged into engagement with plate 36 by a spring 46. Plate 36 is provided with an aperture 48 of a size permitting bolt 30 to pass therethrough. As illustrated in Fig. 6, plate 36 passes transversely of the path of movement of the end of bolt 30 so that, unless aperture 48 is aligned with the bolt, the bolt may not pass into opening 28 inthe cylinder head to lock the receptacle.V As indicated in Fig. 3, the receptacle is provided with stop faces 52 and 54 arranged to cooperativelyengage with a iixed stop lug carried by the casing. By this means, the receptaclev is permitted to move from the position shown in Fig. 5 with the receiving space therein aligned with exit 8 in a counter-clockwise direction, as viewed in that ligure, to a position with opening 2O aligned with entrance opening 6. The stops prevent rotation from the charging position counter-clockwise to discharging position.

When the receptacle is locked the parts Voccupy the positions shown in Fig. 3, with bolt 30 passing through aperture 48 into opening 28 in the cylinder head. At this time, pawl 42 engages ratchet tooth 38. Upon unlocking of the device by withdrawal of bolt 30 from opening 28 and aperture 48 the depositor will turn the receptacle in a counter- Clockwise direction, as viewed in Figs. 3 and 4, juntil the receiving space is brought into alignment with opening 6. At this time Vthe parts will be in the positionsA shownl in Fig. 4. .A deposit is then placed in the receptacle and it is turned in a clockwise direction to discharging position. During this movement pawl 42 rides rearwardly away from tooth 38 and over tooth 40 and' occupies a position substantially such as shown in Fig. 3. During this operation, however, plate 36 will remain in the position shown in Fig. 4.

vThe contents of the vreceptacle should now be discharged through chute 8. If an attempt boit 3o.

' time he may view were now- Ymade to lock the receptacle, it would be unsuccessful, since aperture 48 is out of alignment with bolt 30 and a solid portion of plate 36 is in the path thereof. In order to permit locking, the depositor must againV move the receptacle in a counter-clockwise direction to charging position, at which the interior and ascertain whether or not a proper discharge of the contents has been effected. During this movement, pawl 42 will engagetooth 40, bringing vtooth 40 into that position occupied by tooth 38 in Fig. 4, or in other words, into the position occupied by tooth 40 in Fig. 3, at which time aperture 48 will be in alignment with Upon again imparting clockwise movementito the receptacle in order to bring it into discharging position, pawl 42 will ride y away from engagement with tooth 40 to a withdrawn, all the parts being now restored ,lo

to initial position.

What I claim and desire to protect by Letters Patent is:
