POURING CAN Filed NOV. 25, 1930 WALTER EEL/YEH ATTORNEY INVENTOR Patented Oct. 4, 1 93 2 TUHTED STATES WALTER E. GUYER, or sroKANn, WASHINGTON rounme CAN v Application filed November 25, 1930. Serial No. 498,005.

My present invention relates to an improved pouring can or metallic receptacle having an integral, convertible spout formed in the closure or lid for the can. While the pouring can is adapted as a container for various liquids, it is especially designed for use as a container for paint, from which the liquid paint may be poured when desired. As is well known, it frequently becomes nec essary that the liquid paint shall be poured from one can into another, and this opera-- tion is usually accomplished with diiiiculty and waste or loss of the liquid paint that may be spilled in the pouring operation. By the utilization of the pouring can of my invention, wherein the spout is an integral part of the convertible lid or closure for the me tallic can, the can may with facility first be opened by the use of a standard type of canopener or other tool, to permit mixing of the liquid paint, and then the thoroughly mixed paint may be poured, without waste or spilling, as desired. After the lid has been cut a predetermined distance in the operation of opening the can, the severed part of the lid may with facility and without the employment of special tools, be converted into the pouring spout of the can. If desired the severed portion of the lid may be restored to its original form to cover the contents of the can, and subsequently this restored party may again be converted into the pouring spout of the can.

My invention consists in certain novel combinations and arrangements of parts involving the lid and the can as will hereinafter be morefully set forth and claimed.

In the accompanying drawing I have illustrated one complete example of the physical embodiment of my invention, wherein the parts are combined and arranged in accord- -1nner faceof the lid and providing an exance with the best mode I have thus far devised for the practical application of the principles of my invention.

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a metal- 3-3 of Figure 5.

he can with its lid converted for use as a pouring spout according to my invention.

Figure 2-is an, enlarged perspective view of the'upper portion of the can, showing the pouring spout, and with part of the can broken away for convenience of illustration. Figure 31s a detall sectlonal view at line Figure 4: is a sectional detail view at line 4ofFigure 2. v E Figure 5 is a top plan view of the lid of the can before it is converted for use as a pouring spout.

Inthe preferred form of the invention as illustratedinthe drawing a usual metallic can is designated by the numeral 1, and pros vvvidedlwitjh the top groove 2 with the lid 3 crimped at 4 to the top of the can and se- --cured. as a sealed and rigid closure. For gaining access to the interior of thecan for stirring or mixing its contents and for pouring from the can, the lid is first cut on the semi-circular line 5, which as shown is located'near the edge of the lid, and with its ends terminating past the point of the Thus a slightly larger part of semi-circle. the lid is cutout, Wltl1 a can opener or other tool, leaving the smaller balance of the lid intact as a fixed closure for the top of the can.

The cut-out portion of the lid is provided .with a pair of oppositely extending ribs 6 and 7 on its-e-Xteriorface, which are fashloned by a stamping or pressing machine 'in the inner face of the cut-out portion of the lid. The adjacent ends of the lines ter-" minate atthe dotted line 5' and the remote ends also terminate at the dotted line and they form chords of an arcuate portion of the cut-out part'of the lid. The remote ends of the chord ribs are joined by a transversely extending rib,8 fashioned on the the line 5-,. this out out "portion is bent on the central triangular part 10 of the lid becomes the bottom of the spout, while the two chord edges of the cut portion of the rim are bent upwardly on the grooves to form side flanges or wings 11 and 12.

The converging ends of these flanges or wings form the mouth 13 of the spout, with the depressed part 9 forming the inlet 14 of the spout, and rib 8 the bending line for the spout.

After the lid has been cut around the line 5, the cut-out portion is bent upwardly and backward over the rigid stationary portion 3 of the lid; then the two wings or flanges are also bent upwardly and these wings reinforce the triangular bottom 10 and tend to hold the spout in rigid position on the top of the stationary part ofthe lid. In addition to reinforcing the spout the Wings of course form the side walls of the spout and guide the paint, or other liquid being poured, to the mouth or nozzle 13 of the spout.

As thus converted, ample room is provided for the entrance of a stick or paddle to the can for mixing the paint, and when pouring the paint, the stationary part 3 of the lid forms a barrier against excessive pouring of the paint, while the bent edge 8 permits ready flow of the liquid into the spout through which the paint is guided and flows to the mouth 13. v v

The grooves of the ribs 6, 7 and 8, permit facility in bending or manipulating the cut-out portion of the lid, and it will be apparent that the parts forming the spout may be folded or bent back again and the bent portions restored to their original positions to form a closure for the can and protect its contents. 7

When the spout is again desired for use,

A the parts of the cut-out portionmay readily Z 2., A'closure for be bent or folded for conversion into the pouring spout.

Having thus fully described my invention,

what Iclaim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. A closure for a can consisting of a sealed lid having a cut-out line extending partially around its periphery and adjacent the top edge of the can, a transversely extending folding-groove in the lid joining the ends of the cut-out line, and a pair of oppositely extending bending-grooves terminating at the ends of the transverse groove, converging toward the cut-out line, and also terminating atsaid line. r V 7 a can consisting'of a sealed metal lid having a cut-out portion forming an opening through the lid greater than a semi-circle, said portion being folded back upon a transversely extending groove over the remainder of the sealed lid, and said portion having a pair of upwardly bent side walls of arcuate shape and converging toward the free edge of the cut-out portion to form a pouring spout.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.

WALTER E. GUYER.
