s or ,(Cl.

This invention relates to certain improvements in containers for lipsticks, eyebrow pencils and similar soft pasty cosmetics, and particularly to a type of container in which the cosmetic sticlr is supported in a carrier which is moved from an enclosed casing to expose the stick for use and then withdrawn into the casing and covered by a cap member; this type of dispenser being generally known as a swivel-type lipstick container.

This invention is a division of aprior application filed December 22, 1936, Serial #117,137, issued as Patent No. 2,131,046, September 27, 1938, and has been made the subject of a separate application under ofiicial requirement.

It is the principal object of this invention to provide a round or tubular type of cosmetic container of the above nature in which means are provided for interlocking the rotatable cosmetic propelling means of the casing with the cover when assembled thereon, and especially to provide for such interlocking means which may be readily applied to a standard or stock lipstick with the minimum of changes and parts.

With these and other objects in view, the in vention consists in certain novel features of construction, combinations and arrangements of parts as will be more fully disclosed in connection with the accompanying drawing andas set forth in the annexed claims.

Bil In the drawingsectional view of a lipstick container embodying the principles of this invention and showing the parts in their normal assembled locked position.

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the lipstick container showing the cover detached.

Fig. 3 shows fragmentary separated views of cover and container improvements showing a modification of the construction.

4n Dispensing containers of the class generally known as swivel type lipsticks are a construction well'known in the art and a brief description of the same is considered sufficient for a disclosure of the subject matter of this invention. Referringnow to the drawing in which like numerals refer to corresponding parts throughout the several views the numeral ill refers generally to a cylindrical type of dispensing container. In its construction the container l0 consists essentially of an .outer tubular casing ll, an inside body shell I! and-a spring sleeve l3 disposed therebetween and adapted to be frictionally retained by I the outside shell H. The sleeve I3 is formed with a helical slot l4 and the inside shell is provided with a longitudinal slot IS in which slots M and general vFig. 1 is a partial side elevation and partial I15 is cooperatively engaged the head of a pin it ailixed to a carrier cup ll holding the cosmetic stick it. By manipulating or turning the inside shell l2 relative to the outside shell M- the former for manipulating purposes being provided with an enlarged knurl head it at one end-the carrier cup may be axially advanced or retarded within the container is depending on the direction or rotation of the head it. When not in use, the container it may be conveniently closed by a tubular cover 2t! adapted to telescope over substantially the entire length thereof. 1 As stated in the objects the primary reason of this invention is to reconstruct a standard tubular container in such a manner as to retain its cylindrical appearance and provide an interlocking means between the relative rotative members when the container is in closed position. More specific means is provided whereby the inside shell 02 is interlocked against rotation within the outer casing it by mere assembly of a cap it upon the container in. I

Between the ltnurl head it and the body proper oi the inside shell ii there is formed an intermediate expanded section il formed with a series of longitudinal serrations or flutes 22 and the lower end of the slip cover it is likewise expanded as at 23 and formed with correspondingly shaped pended section 721] above the flutes 22 is slightly beveled or chamfered as at 25 to facilitate the guiding of the flutes 26 on the cover 20 into proper interengagement with the corresponding flutes 22 on the shell I l. Thus it will be evident that when the cover 20 is in complete assembled position access to the outer shell H will be impossible and in addition the inside shell IE will be interlocked with the cover. ii positively assuring no rotation between the relativelyrotative members. In case it is objectionable to have the flutes or Eli flutes 2d. The upper portion of the exserrations visible on the lower end of the cap it, as in the first form, this may be avoided by a construction disclosed in Fig. 6 whereinthe I lower end of the cap 20a. is provided with an in- ;ner attached collar 26 having the interlocking flutes 2'! positioned within the inner end of the cover 20a adjacent the open end. The collar 26 may be rigidly secured by being spun over and forming an attached bead 28 around the lower annular end of the cover 20a.

While this invention has been shown anddescribed in two forms, it will be understood that other changes and variations may bemade in the specific constructions shown and described without departing from the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.

What is claimed is- 1.- In a dispensing cylindrical container of the character disclosed, an outer casing, an inner shell rotatable within said casing, a carrier slidable within said shell, means for advancing and retracting said carrier coincident with the rotations of said shell, an exposed operating head provided at the lower end of said shell, an intermediate expanded portion formed between said head and said shell, a cylindrical closure cap adapted to telescope. over the outside of said casing, a cylindrical sleeve secured to and disposed just within the open end of said cap, and means providing mutually interlocking elements engaged between said sleeve and said expanded portions whensaid cover is in assembled position.

2. In a dispensing cylindrical container of the character disclosed, an outer casing, an inner shell rotatable within said casing, a carrier slidable within said shell, means for advancing and I retracting said carrier coincident with the rotation of said shell, an exposed operating head provided at the lower end of said shell, and intermediate expanded portion formed between said head and said shell and having a series of undulate flutes, a cylindrical closure cap adapted to telescope over the outside of said casing, and a cylindrical sleeve secured to and disposed just within the open end of said cap and having a flanged portion rolled or beaded about the open end of said 'cap as a means of permanent attachment, said sleeve being formed with flutes corresponding to said first mentionedvflutes whereby non-rotatable engagement will be effected be- I tween said cap and inner shell when in-assembled position.

3. In a dispensing cylindrical container of the character disclosed, an. outer casing, an inner shell rotatable within'said casing, a carrier slidable within said shell, means for advancing and retracting said carrier coincident with the rotation of said shell, an exposed operating head provided at the lower end of said shell, an intermediate expanded portion formed between said head and said shell-and having a series of undulated flutes, a cylindrical closure cap adapted to telescope over the outside of said casing, and a sleeve member secured within the open end of said cap, said sleeve being formed with flutes corresponding to said first-mentioned flutes, both sets of flutes having their adjacent ends beveled oil to facilitate and lead the fluted sections into relative interlocking engagement with each other when assembling the cap upon the container.
