Description

A. H. NARROW DISPENSING DEVICE Filed sept.. s, 1932 AprilA 1 7-, 1934.

Patented pr. 17, 1934 UNITED STATES PATE-NT oFFicE 2 Claims.

My invention relates to a dispensing device intended particularly for delivering one at a time such spherical articles as shot, but obviously it can be used for delivering articles of many varieties, sizes and shapes by slight modifications of the form illustrated in the drawing. It is an object of the invention to feed such articles to the delivery point by gravity.

Another object of the invention is to provide such a device with means for preventing accidental escape of the contents or any part thereof.

Another object of the invention is to provide means for handling articles of food or the like without any contact between the hands of the user and any article except the particular one delivered. In this way the device sub-serves the function of sugar tongs or the like in that it will serve such articles as cubes of sugar one at a time without any occasion for the hands to touch another object except the one that is to be used at the moment. l

When used to supply shot for air guns or the like, the device has another object in that it tends to prevent the users from putting shot in their mouths, as is commonly done.

Referring to the drawing, which is made `a part of this applicationand in which similar reference characters indicate similar parts:

Fig. 1' is a perspective of one form of the invention,

Fig, 2, a longitudinal central section,

' Fig. 3, a similar section with the device in a different position,

Fig 4, a front end elevation,

Fig. 5, an elevation of another form of the invention, and

Fig. 6, a side elevation of the same.

In the drawing, reference character 10 indicates `a container of any suitable form and material. This container is or may be closed at one end by a disc 1l and at the other end is reduced in diameter to permit a cap 12 to be positioned on the reduced portion, the circumference of the cap being the same as that of the body of the container. A disc 13 in the cap forms an end closure for the container and it will be seen that in the form illustrated the outer ends of both the container and the cap are crimped to aid in holding the discs in place, the disc 13 serving also to limit the inward movement of the cap, in conjunction With the shoulder at 14 on the container against which shoulder the inner end of the cap abuts.

The disc 13 has an opening in which there is located a beak 15, here shown as cylindrical and held between the prongs adjacent the outlet.

(Cl. S12-89) aring at its inner end but which beak may be shaped otherwise so as to conform substantially to the `articles to be delivered. At or near its outer end the beak is longitudinally slotted so as to provide resilient prongs 16 and 17, here shown as being positioned oppositely to one another, though it will be understood that the number, size and location of these prongs or beak members may be varied to suit particular situations. At their front ends the prongs are sprung in- Wardly toward one another to prevent accidental egress of the contents, this being illustrated in exaggerated form in Fig. 4.

' The device thus far described may be carried in the pocket or in any other convenient manner and the contents may be moved to approach the outlet end in any desired way, it being noted that due to the resiliency of the prongs one or more of the articles in the container will usually be Such an article may readily be engaged by the fingers and drawn out of the beak or it may be forced out in other suitable manner. Even if other articles are in the beak the ngers will not ordinarily touch them and obviously they may be permitted to return to the vbody of the container before removing the single article available or the space between the prongs may be covered or protected in any suitable manner. Pellets such as shown at 18 may be dispensed by my device.

In a modified form of the invention shown in Figs. 5 and 6, I have indicated a container at 19 in the form of a ilat box, said box being provided at its lower end with an opening registering with a beak consisting of two opposed prongs 20, the normal position of said prongs being illustrated in full lines in Fig. 5 and the position to which they may be sprung being illustrated in dotted lines. Ihe box is provided with a cover 21 which slips downward over the upper part of the box, its movement being limited by a flange 22 on the box engaging with a rim 23 on the lid. At the upper end of the box a ring 24 is secured thereto for convenience in carrying the device by such means as a cord 25 which may extend around the neck of the user or be carried on the arm or otherwise suitably supported in any convenient manner so as to cause the contents to run down into the beak,v so that at least one of the articles in the container is always in a position for withdrawal by the user. It will be understood that due to the resiliency oi the beak members only one article will ordinarily be permitted to escape, whereupon the beak members will swing inward to catch and hold the next article.

It will be obvious to those skilled in the art that my device may be used for dispensing articles of various kinds and may be changed in many respects; therefore I do not limit myself to what is shown in the drawing or as described in the specification but only as indicated in the appended claims:

Having thus fully described myjsaid invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

l. A dispensing device for shot or the like comprising a storage chamber having a feed opening and resilient concave prongs arranged about said opening with spaces between them ysaid prongs approaching each other toward their free ends, the spaces between the prongs .being sufficiently wide to permit an article held by the prongs to be engaged by the fingers of the user at a point short of the ends of the prongs and forcibly drawn out.

2. A dispensing device for shot or the like comprising a cylindrical storage chamber having an opening at one end, and a substantially cylindrical beak extending in axial direction from said end said beak having opposed tapering resilient concave members with spaces .between them, said members approaching each other toward their freeends to provide a tapering conduit leading from said opening, the spaces between said members being of suitable Width to permit an article held byv said members to be grasped by the fingers of the user at a point short of the ends of said members and orcibly drawn out.
