DEVICE FOR SECURING MILK CAN COVERS Filed NOV. 24, 1931 Tgu]- 9 a smut cw Patented Feb. 21, 1933 u p UNITED STATES PATENT OFFE'CE HARTLEY e. PACKER, or RENO, NEVADA DEVICE FOR SECURING MILK CAN COVERS Application filed November 24, 1931. Serial No. 577,090.

This invention relates to holding devices this character ordinarily comprises a plugfor receptacle covers and pertains particulike portion which is indicated generally by larly to a device for securing the lid of a milk the numeral 6, which has an upper outwardly can in position on the can. flared portion 7, which when the plug 6 is in The primary object of the present invenplace in the neck 3 of the can lies over the tion is to provide a securing device for milk top surface of the can lip 4 and extends becan covers by means of which the cover may yond the top edge thereof terminating in the be firmly held against accidental displacedownwardly curved portion 8 and the'rolled ment in the event that the can becomes overedge 9. V

10 turned for any reason. In carrying out the present invention each 60 Another object of the invention is to proof the handles is provided or formed at vide a cover holding device which will form one side with a series of eyes which may a permanent part of the can cover and which be provided in any suitable manner but prefmay be easily and quickly actuated for securerably by the securing to the side of the han- 5 ing the cover in position or for releasing it dle of a plate 11 in which the apertures or from securing position. eyeslO are formed longitudinally. As the The invention will be best understood fromeyes 10 are disposed along one side of the a consideration of the following detailed dehandle they, therefore, extend nearly in a scription taken in connection with the acvertical line.

companying drawing forming part of this Connected to the down-curved flange por specification, with the understanding, howtion 8 of'the can cover, at diametrically opever, that the invention is not confined to any posite points, are the units 12. Each of these strict conformity with the showing of the units consists of an open frame 13, the sides drawing but may be changed or modified so of which are connected by the shiftable bar long as such changes or modifications mark 14= by passing loosely through the eyes 15 no material departure from the salient feaformed at the ends thereof. At one end the tures of the invention as expressed in the apframe 13 has connected therewith a link pended claims. I swivel 16 which is attached to the rolled In the drawing edge 9 of the can cover in the manner shown.

Figure 1 is a view of the upper portion of Connected at one end to the central por a milk can, a part of the same being broken tion of the sliding bar 14 is a pin 1. which away, showing the device embodying the passes longitudinally of the frame 13 and present invention in operative position; through the end bar opposite that to which 5 Figure 2 is a sectional view taken substanthe swivel link 16 is connected. The other tially upon the line 22 of Figure 1; end of this pin has conected thereto the chain Figure 3 is a sectional view taken on the links 18 which serve to connect to the pin the line 3-3 of Figure 1; and f hook member '19, the end of the shank of Figure 4 is a detailed view of one of thewhich opposite the'bill portion, has the latelements of the holding device, portions erally directed arms 20 which facilitate the thereof being in section. grasping thereof. 99

Referring now more particularly to the In practice it will be seen that when the lid drawing wherein like numerals of reference 6 is placed in position in a can neck the couindicate corresponding parts throughout the pling units 12 will hang downwardly from several views, the numeral 1 indicates gener the edge thereof and by pulling down upon 0 ally the upper portion of a milk can of the the hooks so as to compress the spring 21 type having an inclined shoulder 2 and the which is mounted in the frame between the neck 3 terminating in the relatively broad lower bar thereof and the sliding bar 14L and surrounding lip 4.- and upon the shoulders of through which the pin 17 passes,'the bell K which are mounted at opposite sides of the portion of the hook may be engaged 111 one can, the handle loops 5. The lid for cans of of the eyes 10 which is carried by the underlying handle. Thus it will be seen that the cover of the can will be firmly secured in position and should the can become accidentally overturned as frequently happens, the cover will not come off and allow the contents of the can to be lost as frequently happens, also where cans are employed without means for securing the lids thereof in place. Since the connection between the lid of the can and the handle is so readily made by means of the coupling units 12 it will be apparent also that the freeing of the lids may be easily and quickly accomplished also.

It will be readily apparent that when the hook members 19 are not in use they may be connected together across the top of the can lid so as to be out of the way. If necessary, the link connections between the hooks and the members 17 may be shortened up so that the ends of the hooks may be joined together or with the structure as shown, the bill of one hook may be connected with the link of the chain 18 which is joined to the other hook.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed is 1. In a milk can having handles and a cover, holding means for said cover comprising an element adapted to be connected with the edge of the cover, a spring carried by said element, a. hook connected to said spring, said spring being placed under tension upon drawing the hook away from the said element, and means for coupling said hook with a handle of the can at a selected one of a n'umber of points on a line extending approximately lengthwise of the can.

2. A device for securing a receptacle lid in place in the mouth of a receptacle, comprising a frame-like element, means for swivelly connecting one end of said element with the lid, a spring disposed in said frame, asliding member extending transversely of the frame and engaging one end of said spring, the other end of the spring being positioned against an end cross member of the frame, a pin connected with said sliding member and extending through said end cross member, a

hook element connected at one end with said pin, and means for facilitating the adjustable attachment of said hook with the body of the receptacle.

3. In a milk can having a handle and a cover, means for securing the cover in position comprising a frame element, means for swivelly connecting one end of the element with the cover, a bar extending transversely of the frame and connected at its ends with the sides of the frame for sliding movement therein, an expansion spring disposed between said bar and an adjacent end of the frame, a pin connected at one end with the bar and extending through said spring and the said adjacent end of the frame, a hook element loosely connected at one end with said pin, and an apertured plate connected with the can handle for engagement by said hook.

f- In a milk can having a handle and a cover, means for securing the cover in position comprising a frame element, means for swivelly connecting one end of the element with the cover, a bar extending transversely of the frame and connected at its ends with the sides of the frame for sliding movement therein, an expansion spring disposed between said bar and an adjacent end of the frame, a pin connected at one end with the bar and extending through said spring and the said adjacent end of the frame, a hook element loosely connected at one end with said pin, an apertured plate connected with the can handle for engagement by said hook, and laterally extending arms forming a part of said hook for facilitating the grasping thereof.

5. A holding device for a receptacle cover, comprising a spring element, a hook connected with one end of said spring element, means for coupling the other end of the spring element with the cover, and a member secured to the body of the receptacle and extending approximately longitudinally thereof and having a plurality of apertures in which said hook may be selectively engaged for placing said spring under a desired tension in secur ing the receptacle cover in place.

In testimony whereof I hereunto aflix my signature.
