Description

June 14, 1932. R. c. TRAVIS MOTH ERADICATOR Filed Oct. 30, 1929 ATTORNEY Patented June 14 1932 308601] 0. TRAVIS, OF BOWLING GREEN", VIRGINIA MOTH ERADICATOB Application filed October 30, 1929. Serial No. 403,560.
This invention relates to moth eradicators, and its general object is to provide a container prlmarily designed for receiving cedar wood in the form of wool with means to 5 retain the fumes from the wood confined within the container until the device is put into use as an eradicator with the result that the eradicator can be stored or displayed for sale or otherwise for an indefinite period of time without fear of the cedarwood losing any of its strength. i
A further object of the invention is to provide a moth eradicator in the form of a perforated container that can be placed in draw- 15 ers, boxes and the like or can be conveniently iling from a garment hanger, hook or the Another object of the invention is to provide a moth eradicator that is simple in construction, inexpensive to manufacture, easy to use and extremely efficient in operation and service.
This invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the com- 25 bination and arrangement of the several parts, to be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing and. specifically pointed out in the appended claim. :1 In describing my invention in detail, reference will be had to'the accompanying drawing wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which:
Figure 1 is a perspective view illustrating the application of my eradicator with respect to a garment hanger.
Figure 2 is a bottom plan view of my eradicator.
Figure 3 is a longitudinal sectional view taken there'through.
Figure 4 is a perspective view of my eradicator with the cover thereon and prior to it being put in use, so as to retain the strength :5 of the cedar wood. y
Referring to the drawing in detail, the ref- I erence numeral 1 indicates a container preferably of pasteboard, which may be of any desired shape and size, but preferably is substantially rectangular in formation, and is of relatively narrow width so as to take up minimum space, yet will properly function to produce the desired resul t The container may be of any type, but as best shown in Figure 3 includes removable 5 ends 2 having flaps 3 formed therewith for holding the ends in closed position. The ends, sides as well as the remaining walls are provided with a plurality of openings 4.- arranged in row formation, and these openings are of a size whereby the fumes of the contents of the container can readily pass there through for a purpose which is obvious for a device of this character.
While the container may be disposed in a drawer, box or the like, in a horizontal position as shown in Figure 3, the container may likewise be hung from a suitable supporting means such as a garment hanger as shownlin Figure 1, or a clothes hook and the like, and in order to accomplish this function, I provide strips 5 formed from light bendable metallic material. The strips are enlarged adjacent one end, and these enlarged ends have passed therethrough securing means in the form of rivets or the like which likewise pass through tabs 7 secured to the container through the-medium of the rivets which are indicated by the reference numeral 8. The strips 5 are secured to one of the large walls of the container adjacent the edges thereof as shown in Figure 2, but of course the strips can be secured to the container at any appropriate place desired providing the container can be conveniently hung from a suitable supporting means as suggested in Figure 1.
Arranged within the container is cedar wood in curled formation, and in order to retain the fumes of the wood prior to putting the device in use as an eradicator for moths, the container is wrapped in transparent or semi-transparent paper in the manner as shown in Figure 4:. This paper pre vents the wood from losing its strength, with the result the eradicator can be stored, displayed for sale or otherwise for an indefinite period of time without fear of the same becoming useless as a moth preventive. For distinction the cedar wood isjndicated by the 100 reference numeral 9 and while it is desired the red wood be used it will of course be understood that any type-of cedar wood can be utilized without departing from the spirit of the invention.
The strips 5 are formed from bendable metal so that they can be readily bent to provide a hook on the free ends in a manner as shown in Figure 1, and for the purposes as has been previously set forth.
It is thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of my invention will be readily apparent.
I desire it to be understood that I may make changes in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claim.
What I claim is:
An eradieator comprising a pasteboard container of relatively narrow elongated formation and being provided with a plurality of openings cedar wood curl arranged in said container. strips secured to said container adjacent the ends thereof and being bendable to provide hooks, said strips being normally arranged flat and in parallelism with the container, a cover for said container and disposed over the openings thereof for closing the same, and said cover being removable when it is desired to put theeradicator in use.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
ROSCOE C. TRAVIS.
