UNITED STATES PATENTFOF FlCE FRICTION IGNITION .t v Jesse Randolph Swan, Jr., Pasadena, Calif, 7 Application September 3, 1937, Serial No. 162,381

2 Claims. (Cl. 131-7) This invention relates to a new and useful at-.

tachment which serves as a lighting means of a socalled self-lighting cigarette and the like, and is an improvement on prior inventions and has for its principal objects to provide a simple and sufficient means whereby the cigarette may be readily ignited without the use of a match or any other independent lighting device.

The principal object of the invention is to provide a ready lighting attachment, simple in design, economical and efficient that will obviate the necessity of a smoker having to carry about his person matches or any other independent lighting apparatus for the use of lighting a cigarette.

The primary object of the invention is to provide for instantaneous ignition by inflammable.

and igniting material combined in the manner herein illustrated and applied to what is commonly known as a. cigarette, which with the proper use, will cause instantaneous ignition and function as a light for a cigarette, or other similar article where instantaneous ignition is of benefit.

A further object is to produce instantaneous ignition by taking hold of the free end of the string, the other end being congealed in the amalgam of matter, a quick jerky movement of the free end of the string in the intended direction breaking the amalgam of matter or the igniter tip thus to cause instantaneous ignition.

The combustible compound of matter that is to be used and so designated as the igniter tip, is similar in formula and substance as that compound of matter contained in the head of an ordinary match, varying somewhat in quantity and combustible qualities.

With these and other objects in view, the invention resides in certain novel constructions, combinations and arrangement of parts, the essential features of which are hereinafter more fully described and particularly pointed out in the appended claims, and are illustrated in the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specification, in which;

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a portion of a cigarette having my improved igniting unit attached thereto.

Figure 2 is a plan view of the unit, particularly showing the mount prior to its afl'lxation to the sides of the cigarette.

Figure 3 is a side elevation of a portion of the cigarette showing the lighter unit in place.

Figure 4 is a side elevation of a portion of the oxygen of the air.

paper crossing over the end of the cigarette and cigarette, illustrating another aspect of the lighter unit.

Figure 5 is a perspective view illustrating the mode of use of the invention.

Referring now to the drawing by characters of reference. Figure 1 is a cigarette of conventional shape and is shown as having one of my complete improved lighting devices applied to the one end thereof. The cigarette is referred to by character A and comprises the usual outer wrapper that covers and holds the tobacco of an ordinary cigarette.

The lighting attachment constituting the present invention comprises a rectangular mount I formed of paper or any other suitable material, sufliciently narrow in width so that on each side thereof where crossing over the end of the cigar ette and down along the opposite sides thereof, it will leave a portion of the end of the cigarette or the tobacco contained therein exposed to facilitate a draft and expose the tobacco to the And that the ends of the down the side thereof to be sufiicient in length to fasten to a portion of the sides of the cigarette, approximately one half inch, and by adhesion affixed to the one end and sides of the cigarette. And to be of sufficient tensile strength that will withstand the effect of the force necessarily created by the quick jerky movement of the string 2 that is congealed in an ignitible element 3 so that when the necessary force is applied to break element 3 that part I will stay intact congealed to the cigarette and likewise to burn when the cigarette is being consumed byfire.

The numeral 2 indicates a string constructed of asbestos or any non-inflammable material as a safety protection so when severed from element 3 it has served its desired purpose and may be discarded without fear of continued or renewed ignition. The string may be designated as a trigger. It is tohave suificient tensile strength that when applied with a quick jerky movement it will not break; but the action will break element 3. String 2 is to be in size, length, design and color, suitable for the intended purpose, one end of the string to be incorporated and congealed in element 3 with the other end of the string being free and lose, approximately one and one-half inches in length, long enough however so as to enable it to be grasped with the fingers.

The numeral 3 is an element similar in formula and substance as that contained in an ordinary common match, and to be of suificient ity of inatteiyasjvhen the breaking of same place by the'quick jerkyre re 1H9 ignition will result. Element- 3r drop in size-ji st' tb cbver-the end of the paper 1."

where it passcsover; the end offthe cigarette, is to be spottedbytadhes'on i' I string 2 is to-"be incorporated in tl e.,ainalgam mass 3 and isto become a part and parcel of the element 3 during. thestageand proces congealing, so that whenthe rnolte'n' massoreele? ment 3 is set or hardened, thestring 2 wi1 embodied therein, and-thafiwl'lrf'the strin' jerked in the intendeddire'ction'itfwill'brea -the element 3 and causeignitiori'.

most desirable embodiment of my invention, it is obvious that many of the details may be'varied without in any way departing from the spirit of my invention; and I desire to be understood that I may make changes in the construction andin the combination and arrangement of the several p11 rts, provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claims.

I am aware that prior to my invention every substance used to cause friction ignition, every substance used in the manufacture of paper," every substance used in the manufacture of string, have all been in public use. from the construction shown by the drawing it is obvious to any one skilled in the art that frequent lack of uniformity in the size and shape of cigarettes will not prevent its ignition because all parts necessary to ignite are self embodied and congealed in the amalgam of matter and compose one unit and will ignite perfectly by a quick jerky movenie nt ofthe string, or trigger, in the intended direction.

' This lighting feature permits the entire lighter t bo manufactured as a separate unit and it can *bzQllDDljQd to=cigarette manufacturers completeyeinbodie'dland congealed as one unit and ready o apply to; the .end of a cigarette.

Having thus described my invention what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

- 1. A lighter fora cigarette and similar tobacco Qiroll consisting bi an ignitible element, 2. rectaai gular paper-mount of narrow strip form to which-saidelementfis aflixed, said mount being While I have described what I: deem to be the superimposed-over one end of the cigarette and attachedto the sides thereof and being narrower than the diameter of the roll to expose a draft space beside at least one edge of the mount, and a stringembedded at one end in said element being adapted 'tofrictionally ignite the element "by pulling and then thrown away, said string being non-inflammable to insure avoidance of itsburning.

2. A lighter for a cigarette of the type having a a paper mount applied over one end of the cigarette and'having an ignitible element aflixed to said mount in line with said end, a string embedded in said ignitible element and extending oif loosely therefrom, said string being pulled to frictionally ignite the element and being composed of non-inflammable material.
