Wathanpe/Z Ho f/m an/ I I INVENTOR- BY ATTORNEY tion.

Patented Feb. 23, 1937 PATENT OFFICE DRAININ G RACK,

Nathaniel Hoffman, Atlantic City, N. 5., designer, by mcsne assignments, to Pauline Badman,

Atlantic City, N. J.

Application January 24, 1936, Serial No. child 2 Claims.

This invention relates to racks and has for the primary object the provision of a portable device of this character which is especially adapted for supporting a series of liquid containers either prior to being opened or after being opened in draining position, whereby the containers may be readily displayed or conveniently carried as a single unit from one place to another and for draining all of said containers into an engine or some other device or, for instance, into a collecting receptacle when desiring to employ the device for obtaining the drainings of the containers after the initial emptying thereof.

Another object of the invention is the provision of means for opening the containers after the positioning thereof in the device and the placing of the latter into communication with the crank case of an engine whereby a series of containers may be easily and quickly emptied into the engine to permit quick servicing of the latter with maximum effort on the part of the operator.

With these and other objects in view, this invention consists in certain novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more fully described and claimed.

For a complete understanding of my invention,

reference is to be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view illustrating a rack constructed in accordance with my inven- Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view illustrating the rack.

Figure 3 is a fragmentary side elevation illustrating the outlet or discharge detachable from the remaining parts of the rack.

Referring in detail to the drawing, the numeral i indicates a frame member of channeled formation, that is, of substantially U-shape in cross section and has one end terminating into a funnel-shaped portion 2, the discharge neck thereof being equipped with threads 3 to permit the application of a closure cap 4 thereto or the connection of the funnel-shaped portion to the fitting 5 of a flexible hose 6 or may be threaded directly into a collecting receptacle or positioned over the receiving opening i of a collecting receptacle 8, as shown in Figure 2. The other end of the frame member is provided with a bail 9 to engage with a support In or the frame member may be connected directly to a support by a fastener (not shown) passing through an aperture II. The device when applied to a support positions the open side of the frame member outwardly from the support. 7

A series of superimposed and relatively spaced shelves 32 are secured in the frame member and projects limited distance outwardly of the latter and are each disposed. on an incline with the lowermost end spaced from the frame member. The shelves are substantially semi-cylindrical and are adapted to have positioned thereon liquid containers supported in superimposed relation and in inclined positions so that the major portion of the containers will be exposed permitting the device to be employed for displaying said containers. The lower ends of the containers when positioned on the shelves abut the sides of the frame member 5, as shown in Figure 2 Containers placed on the shelves and opened will readily drain completely of their liquid content.

Each shelf adjacent its lowermost end is equipped with a container puncturing element it so that after a container has been placed on a shelf, a pressure thereon will bring about opening of the container.

By reference to Figure 2, it will be seen that when the containers are positioned on the shelves that the inner ends of the shelves project beyond the lower ends of said containers on which the content of the container flows before entering the frame member. This permits the flow from each container into the member i from coming in contact with the container thereunder.

instead of forming the funnel-shaped portion 2 as an integral part of the frame member 9, it may be made in the form of a funnel it having bayonet .slots 55 to receive pins it carried by the frame member i. With this arrangement the funnel I4 may be employed for any purpose desired without utilizing the remaining part of myv invention.

A device of the character described and shown in the drawing has a Wide range of use.

First, it may be employed for displaying containers.

Second, it may be employed for conveying a series of containers from one place to another as a single unit.

Third, the device may be employed for draining a series of containers after being opened and the liquid content dispensed therefrom so that the drainage may be accumulated over a period of time from a large number of containers.

Fourth, the device may be employed for successfully emptying the contents of a series of containers into a single receptacle or into a crank case of an engine and also whereby the containers, after being placed therein, may be opened or punctured to permit the liquid content to flow therefrom.

Havingdescribed the invention, I claim:

1. A rack comprising a vertically arranged member of substantially U-shape in cross section to provide a trough-like portion, said member having the lower end thereof shaped to provide a funnel, means for connecting the upper end of the member to a. support, and a plurality of inclined shelves secured on and extending into said member for supporting containers in superimposed relation ior draining into the member.

2. A rack comprising a vertically arranged NATHANIEL HOFFMAN.

shelves.
