DI SPENS ING CONTAINER Filed Oct. 16, 1955 A which the contents thereof may poured or sifted.
Patented July 7, 1936 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE DISPENSING CONTAINER Application October 16, 1935, Serial No. 45,339
1 Claim.
The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in dispensing containers and more particularly to a dispensing container from be either An object of the invention is to provide a dispensing container of the above type which may be manufactured at a relatively low cost and which is provided with a sliding closure member for controlling a dispensing opening in the container, the closure member being disposed within and below the double seam on the container end so as to permit the stacking of containers one upon the other.
The above and other objects of the invention will in part be obvious and will be hereinafter more fully set forth.
In the accompanying drawing:
Fig. 1 is a top plan view of the container with the closure member shown in its two dispensing positions and in its closed position.
Fig. 2 is a side View in section showing the closure member in its closed position.
Fig. 3 is a sectional view taken along the line 33 of Fig.2.
Fig. 4 is a diagrammatic view showing the closure member and the can end before the same have been united.
Fig. 5 is a diagrammatic view showing the closure member and can end after the same have been united.
The invention relates generally to a dispensing container which is adapted to contain pulverulent or granular material and which includes a closure member slidably secured thereto for controlling a dispensing opening. The container.
is provided with a scored portion which can be punched out by the purchaser to form a relatively large dispensing opening and the closure member is provided with a series of perforations through a portion thereof. The closure member may be moved to any one of several positions, in one of which the perforated portion thereof is disposed over the scored portion in the container so that, when the scored portion is punched out, the container may be employed as a dredge or sifter. The closure member may be moved to another position wherein the scored portion in the container is exposed so that, when the scored portion is punched through, the contents of the container may be poured. In still another position of the closure member, the dispensing opening in the container is covered thereby so as to prevent the escape of material depending portions which are shaped to form grooves into which corresponding ribs on the closure member extend. In this manner, the closure member is slidably mounted on the container end. The closure member is disposed entirely within and below the double seam on the container end so that several containers maybe stacked one upon the other.
Referring more in detail to the accompanying drawing, a container of rectangular cross-section is shown for purposes of illustration. The container includes a body portion [0 and an end member ll double seamed thereto, as at 12. As shown in Fig. 4, the end member I l is shaped to provide depending portions l3 which extend downwardly at substantially right angles to the plane thereof. The depending portions I3 form grooves into which depending portions l5 on a closure member I4 are adapted to fit. The depending portions IS on the closure member E i form ribs which extend into the grooves formed by the depending portions l3 on the can end.
After the closure member has been fitted onto the can end, as shown in Fig. 4, the interfitting depending portions l3 and I5 are squeezed together and bent laterally to lie at an acute angle to the plane of. the can end as shown in Fig. 5. There is thus provided a doubly thick rib portion having a laterally extending edge or flange [6 which rests upon the can end M. It will be seen that a tight sealing contact is provided between the under face of the closure member l4 and the outer face of the can end H and that the interlocking connection between the closure member and the can end will prevent the same from becoming separated. The closure member [4 is provided with rolled end portions 51 which serve as handles to manipulate the same. It will be noted that the entire closure including the handle portions I1 is disposed within and below the double seam l2 so that several containers may be stacked one upon the other.
The can end II is provided with a scored portion l8 which may be punched through by the purchaser to provide a dispensing opening as shown in Fig. 2. The can end is also provided with a very slight depressed portion l9 forming a recess into which fits a depressed portion or dimple 20 on the closure member l4 when the same is in a closed position as shown in Fig. 2. This affords a locking means for preventing the closure from accidentally shifting. The closure member I4 is also provided with a series of perforations 2| through a portion thereof.
When the closure member 14 is in the position shown in Fig. 2, with the depressed portions 59 and 20 in register, it will be noted that the perforated portion 2| on the closure is removed from the dispensing opening 18 in the can end I! so that the container is thus sealed and the contents thereof cannot escape. When the closure member I4 is moved to the left, that is, to the dotted line position indicated by a in Fig. 1, it will be noted that the dispensing opening H8 in the can end is exposed so that the contents thereof may be poured out in bulk. When the closure member [4 is moved to the right, that is, to the dotted line position shown by b in Fig. 1, the perforated portion 2| is disposed over the dispensing opening l8 in the can end so that the contents thereof may be sifted.
It will be noted from the foregoing description that the present invention affords an extremely simple and efficient dispensing container which may be manufactured at a relatively low cost. It will also be noted that a single closure member which is slidably and permanently mounted on the container may, by its several positions, be employed to either! seal the container, permit the contents to be poured therefrom, or permit the contents to be sifted therefrom.
It is obvious that minor changes in the details of construction and arrangement of parts may be made without departing from the scope of the invention as set forth in the appended claim.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:
A container comprising a body portion, an end member double seamed thereto, said end member being provided with depending angularly disposed portions forming grooves and having a scored portion adapted to provide a dispensing opening when punched out, and a closure member having depending angular ribs fitting within said grooves whereby to permanently but slidably secure the closure on the end member, said closare member having a perforated portion adapted to permit the sifting of the contents when disposed over the dispensing opening, said dispensing opening being exposed to permit the pouring of the contents of the container when said closure member is moved to shift the perforated portion to one side thereof and being sealed when the perforated portion is shifted to an intermediate position.
