Description

Patented Jan. 4, 1938 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE PACKAGE DISPENSING DEVICE Leo Lichtenstein, Chicago, Ill.

Application August 3, 1937, Serial No. 157,145 1 Claim. (01. 312-42) The device of the present invention is designed as a combined package dispenser and advertising display board or panel; and. the object of the present invention is to simplify and cheapen the construction to such a degree that if desired the device may be used for a single service and thereafter discarded, although the dispenser is adapt ed to be refilled without difficulty for additional service.

The device is intended primarily for the dispensing of packages containing razor blades, confections, or other small objects, and also to afford adequate space for the advertising of such articles in an attractive and conspicuous manner.

Further objects and details will appear from the description of the invention in conjunction with the accompanying drawing, wherein,

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the device as a whole;

Fig. 2 is a perspective view showing the rear or open side of one of the dispenser chutes, with the packages arranged in column form;

Fig. 3 is a sectional elevation taken on line 3-4 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 4 is a cross sectional view taken on line 4-4 of Fig. 1; and

Fig. 5 is a view of the metallic blank from which the dispenser chute is formed.

As shown, the device consists of a backing panel Ill of suitable size and shape to display advertising matter relating to the articles being dispensed, which backing panel in the present instance serves as a mounting for two dispenser chutes i i of identical formation, which are preferably located in spaced relation to permit the lower center of the panel to be employed for advertising purposes.

Each of the dispenser chutes is formed from a blank of thin metal comprising a front centrally disposed body portion l2, having formed therein a vertically elongated slot or opening l3 and having along each side edge a rectangular wing it adapted to be bent along a folding line IE to afiord the side wall of the dispenser. The body portion i2 of the blank at its lower edge is provided with a lower tongue l6, and at its upper edge with a similar upper tongue I! adapted to be struck inwardly along folding lines i8 and i9 respectively, to afiord the bottom and top walls of the dispenser.

Near the lower edge of the blank is formed a transversely elongated finger slot 20 which extends through the body of the blank and into the wings M, so that when the wings are bent into right angular relation to the body, the slot thus afforded will extend across the entire front of the dispenser near its bottom and back into each of the side walls to afford a convenient slot for the removal of one of the lowermost packages 2| of a column of rectangular packages contained within the dispenser.

In order to prevent accidental displacement, a light fiat spring tongue 22 is provided which normally stands in vertical relation across the slot 20, which spring tongue at its lower end is provided with an inwardly extending finger 23 secured by a rivet 24 to the bottom of the dispenser. The arrangement is one which, in the present instance, normally presents the second lowermost package to the center of the slot in such a way that it may be drawn out by the user, thereby causing the spring tongue to yield and permit removal of the package.

The dispenser is secured to the backing panel by four tongues 25, properly spaced to pass through slots 26 in the backing panel and to be thereafter struck inwardly to overlie the rear face of the panel, thereby holding the dispenser in fixed relation thereon.

In order to rapidly fill the dispenser chute, it is left open at the rear so that an entire column of packages may be inserted as a unit rather than separately, and in order to temporarily hold the column in place while the dispenser chute is being mounted upon and secured to the panel, the upper tongue I I is adapted to be bent inwardly into oblique relation to the front wall of the dispenser and between the side walls thereof, as shown in Fig. 3, so as to exertsuificient pressure upon the packages to temporarily prevent displacement and until the tongues 25 can be entered through the slots 26 in the backing panel and secured thereto. After being thus secured, the backing panel will itself provide the rear wall for each of the dispenser chutes mounted thereon and hold the dispenser rigidly so that the packages may be removed one at a time from the lower portion of the column as occasion may require.

The device as a whole affords an attractive display for the packages, which are visible through the front slot i3, and permits a much greater number of packages to be mourted upon an advertising display panel than cou'd be carried if the packages were secured flatwisethereon, or in other than column form.

The device is especially useful in hotel rooms, or in public places where it is desired to dispense razor blades, advertising novelties or the like, and is peculiarly adapted for use where such insertionot a column of packages, and attaching means for securing the dispenser chute to the backing panel after being filled with packages, the backing panel after attachment aflording a rear closing wall for the chute, the top wall of the dispenser chute extending inwardly and downwardly at an acute angle between the side walls to exert temporary pressure upon the column of packages to prevent displacement thereof before attachment of the dispenser chute to the backing 10 panel.
