LIQUID DISPENSER Filed Feb. 13, 1934 INVENTOR.

Jim) '1) RNEY.

Patented May 1935 UNITED STATE LIQUID msrENsE James Forman, Astoria, Long Island, N. Y., as- A signor to Florence B. Bohack, New York,-N. Y., doing business under the Supply Company 4 Claims.

This invention relates generally to liquid containers and dispensers and more particularly to such devices adapted for use with floor mops and the like. i

It is an object of my invention to provide such a container and dispenser with means for controlling the discharge of the liquid.

Another object is to provide a device of this kind with means for readily attaching and detaching it from the handle of a mop or the like.

A further object is to provide a liquid container and dispenser that is positive in operation. I 7

Other objects and advantages, of my improved device will be apparent from the description thereof taken in connection with the accompanying drawing in which-- Figure 1 is a side elevation of a mop having a liquid container and dispenser embodying my invention mounted on the handle thereof.

Figure2 is a side elevation of a different type of mop with my improved container and dispenser mounted on the handle thereof.

Figure 3 is an enlarged central vertical section through my improved container and dispenser.

Figure 4 is an enlarged front elevation of a bracket for the handle for supporting the container and dispenser.

Figure 5 is a top plan view of the bracket shown in Figure 4.

Figure 6 is a detail view showing the cap on the bottom of the container and dispenser.

Figure 7 is a sectional view of the support for the valve shaft taken on the line |-1 of Figure 3.

Referring to the drawing, an ordinary type of commercial mop is shown in Figure l for oiling floors and the like. The mop includes a handle 9 pivotally connected to a mop head ID. This mop head comprises a frame II from which mopping or oiling material Ilia is suspended. A horizontal plate I2 secures the material Illa to the frame. This plate is provided with openings to permit liquid such as oil to seep downwardly to the material below. The means of connection between the handle 9 and the mop bead I0 is shown as a split sleeve [3, the bottom end of which is pivotally mounted on a hinge pin l4 passing between the bifurcated ends of the frame II. A wing nut I5 removably clamps the handle to the sleeve.

My improved liquid container and dispenser is adapted to be mounted on the handle 9 at any point along-the same but preferably at the i Application February 13, 1934, Serial No. 711,005 g name of Progress bottom near the mop head for ready manipulation by the foot of the user of the mop. The container is mounted on the handle by meansof a bracket 20 comprising a split ring 2l,'the split ends of which terminate in complementary flattened portions 22 and 23. The portion 1 is formed with an extension 24 which is twisted to a different plane than the plane of the portion 23 as shown in Figures 1 and 5. This twisted extension 24 connects'the split ring 2! at the point indicated at 25 to an integral plate portion 23 which is disposed on a plane at right angles to the plane of the body of the split ring, being substantially vertical "as viewed in Figure 1 whereas the split ring is substantially horizontal. The plate 26 is provided with spaced holes 2! having restricted notches 28. A bolt 29 passing through openings in the flat portions 22 and 23 of the ring and a wing nut 30 removably clamp the bracket 20 to the handle 9.

The improved container and dispenser is shown as a cylindrical member or can 3| and is preferably madeof tinned sheet metal. It may of course be of any desiredshape. The can 3| is closed at the bottom by a plate 32 and at the top by a plate 33. vided with a central opening. Mounted on the plate 32 centrally thereof so as to surround the central opening is a neck or spout member 34. This spout member 34 extends outwardly from the plate 32 and is provided with external and internal screw threads. A similar spout member 35 is provided for the top plate 33. The spout member 34 is covered by a screw threaded cap member 36 and the spout 35 by a similar cap member 31.

Positioned inside the spout 35 and screw threaded thereto is an inverted cap member 39 having a small central opening. The upper free edge of cap 39 as viewed in Figure 3 is provided with a plurality of lugs or finger pieces 39a to faciltate insertion and removal of the cap.

Extending through the can 31 centrally thereof and into the spouts 34 and 35 is a rod or shaft 40. A button or foot pedal 4| is threaded on to the top of the shaft 40.

Mounted adjacent the bottom of the can 3| and extending transversely thereof from wall to wall is achannel shaped shelf or bridge member r 42 provided with a central opening in alignment with the opening in the inverted cap 39 in spout 35. A helical spring 43 surrounds the shaft 40 near the bottom thereof and has one end bearing on and supported by the bridge member 42 Each of these plates is prodle 9 as shown in Figure 1.

and its other end fastened to a disk or collar 44 on the shaft 40.

On the lower end of shaft 40. a plate member or disk 45 is fastened which disk is provided with a peripheral rim or flange. Mounted on the inner face of the disk and positioned between the rim thereof is washer 45 of leather, rubber or any suitable material. This washer and disk serve as a-valvetoclose the opening in the neck portion 32a in the bottom plate 32.

The transverse plate portion 36a of the cap 36 at the bottom discharge end of the can is provided with a small opening 331) at a point away from the center of the plate 35a, and pivotally mounted on the outside of said plate portion 36:: is another plate or disk 41 provided with a small opening 41a adapted to align with the opening 361). A lug or finger piece may be formed on the edge of the disk 41 to move the same around as will be understood.

The can 31 may be provided lengthwise thereof with a strip of metal or plate 50 to reinforce the same at said point where rivets 5! with outwardly extending button heads are mounted on the wall of the can. Instead of rivets with outwardly extending button heads, any other outstanding members such as hooks may be mounted on the wall of the can.

In use, the bracket 20 is mounted on the han- The cap 3! is removed to give access to button 4! and the plate 41 at the bottom is turned so that the openings 36b and 410. are aligned. The can 3| is then mounted on the plate 26 by inserting the button heads 5| inthe openings 21 and allowing them to slide down into the notches 28. The can is placed directly over the mop head. Pressure on the button M by the foot or hand forces the shaft downwardly against the action of spring 43 and opens the valve comprising disk 45 and washer 46. The oil then flows through the openings 36b and "a on to the plate 12 and seeps down on to the material. Illa.

In using the improved device on a mop or brush of the type shown in Figure 2, the can 3! is mounted on the rear side of the handle 9 so that the wax or oil may drip directly on to the floor and then. be spread or rubbed into the floor by the mop head 52.

The cap 3'! and closure disk 4'! permit the container to be shipped without fear of unwarranted operation of the device or loss of liquid.

Changes in details may be made without departing from the principle of the invention and I desire to be limited only by the state of the prior art and the appended claims.

I claim:

l. A container for liquid comprising a closed member having a filling spout and discharge opening, spring pressed valve means normally closing said discharge opening, a closure cap surrounding 'said discharge opening and having an opening therein, a disk on the exterior of said closure cap provided with an opening adapted to be moved into alignment with the closure cap opening and manual means normally extending outwardly of said filling spout for operating said valve means to open the discharge opening.
