DE TACHABLE HANDLE FOR CANS OR THE LIKE Filed Dec. 3, 1935 INVENTOR.
imgeF/Woewam ATTORNEY.
Patented Mar. 30, 1937 DETACHABLE flANlilfi liEFoR CANS OR THE George F. Wiedemann, Milwaukee, Wis. Application December 3, 1935, Serial No. 52,712 2 Claims. (01. 16--114) UNITED STATES PATENT oFEieE This invention relates to detachable handles and more particularly to a type of handle that is adaptable for use with tin cans or the like.
With the eflicient can opening devices at present available which are designed to cut the entire top out of a tin can leaving a smooth bead around the entire circumference of the can, it is very often convenient as well as practical to utilize these cans for various purposes other than for which they were intended, and the invention seeks among other objects to provide a device that will act as a handle or support which may be easily fastened to and readily removed from the can.
The invention seeks as a further object to provide such a device that may be constructed of a single piece of material if desired and so designed that it may be applied to or removed from a can without the aid of tools or any other mechanical assistance.
Other and incidental objects not particularly mentioned in the foregoing will be apparent from the following description and the accompanying drawing forming a part of the specification.
Figure 1 is a view of the device applied to a can illustrating the manner in which the horizontal clamping members project outwardly from the handle.
Figure 2 is a side view'of the device applied to a can illustrating the manner of contact.
Figure 3 is a perspective rear view of the device constructed of one piece of material.
Figure 4 is a perspective view of the device having the handle attached separately by means of rivets or the like.
Figure 5 is a perspective front view of the device constructed of a single piece of material.
Figure 6 is a top or plan view of the attaching member showing the projecting members below the bead of the can.
Similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views and referring now to the same, character It represents a handle constructed of a fiat piece of metal or the like, that is, preferably irregularly curved, as at II, to fit the hand of the user. The handle III has a horizontally disposed portion I2 terminating into an angular clamping member I3, composed of an element It extending upward, and an element I5 extending downward and forming a channel therebetween to engage the beaded edge I! of a can.
The element I4 has two members I6 and I6 extending laterally therefrom in opposite directions to engage the can immediately below the bead ll of the can. The handle It has its lower end I8 formed to contact the can at I9, preferably with some degree of pressure, produced by the resilient action of the handle It as formed at the contour II. 5
In Figure 4 a similar arrangement is shown, but the plane of the handle 2 is vertical, and fastened to the vertical section I4 by means of rivets 2|, through an angular section 22 of the handle 20. 0
In use the device is forced over the wall of a tin can or the like so that the bead I! of the can engages the channel I3 formed by theelements I4 and I5. This will place the projecting members I6 and I6 below the bead H, and, by reason 15 of the arc of curvature of the members I6 and I6. being somewhat smaller than the curvature of the can itself, will cause them to press tightly against the outside of the can and thereby effect a clamping action between the elements M and I5 and the edge of the can. The lower end 18 of the handle I0 will bear against the outside of the can at I9 due to the resiliency of the handle and the construction of the device thereby causing the handle to properly adapt itself for use. If the user wishes to remove the handle from the can, it is only necessary to turn the handle slightly, thereby bringing one of the projecting members I6 and I6 upward and over the bead IT, at which time the entire unit may be raised off the wall of the can.
The invention is susceptible to various changes in its form and minor details of construction and the right is hereby reserved to make such changes as properly fall within the scope of the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent in the United States, is:
1. As a new article of manufacture, a detachable handle formed of sheet metal shaped to provide a curved hand grip portion with its lower end adapted to bear against the outer side of a container, a substantially horizontal portion at the upper end of the hand grip portion and having its free end bent angularly upward and upon itself therefrom a clamp portion adapted to engage over the edge of the container, and laterally bowed extensions at opposite sides of the outer side of the clamp portion adapted to flexibly bear against the outer side of the container to tension the clamp portion in its engagement with the container edge.
2. In a device of the character described, a handle having an upper substantially horizontal portion and its lower end adapted to bear against the outer side of a can, a clamp member rising from the free end of said horizontal portion and adapted toengage over the edge of said can, and members extending horizontally from and at op- 5 posite sides of the outer side of the clamp member, said members being acutely curved relatively to the curvature of the side Wall of the can to exert pressure on the latter to cause the clamp member to grip the edge of the can.
