The outer end of syringe springs, and has for an object to prothe plunger is providedwith flange H and when vide a metal spring suitable for being disposed the plunger fully occupies the cylinder its outer between the open end of the syringe cylinder and end protrudes from the same for a hand hold.

Similar characters refer to similar parts When pressure is applied, as by hand, tothe outer throughout.

With more particular reference to the desigll, !2', spring [6, [1,11 may yield allowing said nated parts: A glass cylinder 4 has a bore 5 and movement of the plunger to occur and move a closed end or head 6. An outlet through the tongues l'l toward the cylinder to occupy positions head is provided by nozzle to. The inner end shown for one of them at H in Fig. I. With 5 of the cylinder bore is, preferably, flat and at sufficient pressure applied to plunger flange ll right angles with the bore as shown at I.

The outer end of lug I5 is preferably disposed adjacent the outer side of flange 8 of the cylinder but it may never contact with boss I2 of the plunger. This lug is shaped to closely fit flange 8 at one of flats 9 thereof and serves to localize clip M on the cylinder and also provide a finger hold useful when the spring assembly is being removed from or placed in its operative position.

In operation: The plunger is withdrawn to the position in the cylinder which admits therein the desired quantity of liquid and then is pushed into the cylinder, in the usual way, to expel the liquid through nozzle 6a and into and through the hypodermic needle, usually attached thereto but not shown, The syringe Will operate in all ways the same as though my springwerenotmountedthereon till, in its approach to the cylinder, plunger boss 52 bears on spring tongues I? when resilient opposition is ofiered thereby Warning the operator of the syringe that the charge of liquid therein is nearly expelled and further progress of the plunger will continue with caution till the head of the cylinder is reached by the plunger with a pressure which the same is well able to withstand without injury thereto.

1 If preferred, one of spring tongues I! will serve very well and the other may be omitted Also, in place of the fiat spring illustrated, a spring wire can be shaped to serve the purpose of the syringe spring.

Since my syringe spring is entirely made of metal, it mayremain in place on the syringe while the same is being sterilized by boiling water without injury to the spring. Also, its removal and replacement are so easily attained that the syringe may be freed from it whenever desired.

Having thus disclosed my invention, what I claim as new therein and desire to secure by Letters Patent is,-

A syringe comprising a barrel having a nozzle end and a plunger end, a ledge projecting out- Wardly from the plunger end, a plunger having an annular boss at the outer portion thereof and means for supporting and maintaining the inner end of the plunger out of contact with the nozzle end of the barrel in the normal lowermost position of the plunger in the barrel when the barrel is empty, said means comprising a clip of resilient material having a barrel embracing portion seated beneath the ledge, an integral resilient extension engaging the upper portion of the ledge and comprising a resilient finger extending upwardly from the ledge and having a terminal cam face, the length of the plunger from its fluidejecting end to the under side of the boss being less than that of the inner extent of the barrel plus the height of the terminal cam face of the finger above the upper edge of the ledge whereby a surface of said cam face will be engaged by the boss on the plunger at the moment when the plunger is in a position close to but still out of contact with the inner face of the nozzle end of the barrel, said boss thereupon, on application of further pressure applied to the plunger, flexing the finger and thereby enabling the plunger to be moved to a position where it makes contact with the inner face of the nozzle-end of the barrel.
