/N I/E N TOR Feb. 4, 1941. o. CESAREO I HAIRPIN DISPENSER Filed April 8, 19358 Patented Feb. 4, 1941 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE v Orfeo Cesareo, Westwood, N. J. Application April 8, 1938, Serial No. 200,830

1' Claim.

This invention relates to hairpin dispensers and more particularly to a container-like structure which is adapted to store a quantity of hairpins in magazine packs capable of feeding individual hairpins one at a time through an outlet provided at the base of said container.

In the hair dressing and beauty parlor trade, considerable time is lost in handling and selecting hairpins because they are usually scattered and tangled in a container thereby causing the operator considerable distraction and loss of time in selecting individual pins. It is the object of this invention, therefore, to provide means whereby the hairpins are automatically served one at a time and at a given point in such a manner as to be readily handled, thus eliminating lost motion and time.

According to one embodiment of the invention, this object is attained by a novel construction,

arrangement and combination of parts hereinafter described and claimed, and the invention itself will be readily understood from the following detailed description and appended claim in connection with the accompanying drawing in which:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of one form of the invention, certain parts being cut away to expose more clearly the gravity feed magazine type hairpin dispenser adapted for storing a plurality of rectangular hairpin magazine packs.

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a modified form of the invention, also partly cut away to disclose the form of a container adapted for storing a flexible tape magazine hairpin pack wound upon a reel.

Referring to Fig. 1, the container H is a boxlike structure which can be mounted on an appropriate stand, such as M. It is of any suitable dimensicn having an elongated side 6 which, 40 together with internal separator l3 and stopneck section 1, forms a feed well and outlet guide for hairpin magazine pack I. Magazine 1 is fed by gravity down the feed well formed by the side 6, the section 1 and the separator l3 until 5 hairpin 3 is driven past outlet 8 and against stop section I. Hairpin 3 is then ready for selection,

and upon being removed from the magazine I causes said magazine to drop as previously described until the next hairpin 9 in the magazine 50 comes to rest against stop I. This procedure is continued until the last hairpin 2 in magazine I is removed at section I, at which time the magazine drops out of the well exit l0.

Section 4 of the container is a storage place 55 for additional magazines such as l5 if it is desir'ed to provide a container for said magazines as an integral part of the dispenser. When magazine l is exhausted and drops out of well exit l0, magazine l2 is manually lifted over separator I3 and allowed to drop down the feed well 6, 1, 5 I3 and the pins are selected for use as previously described for magazine I; This process is continued until all the magazines l5 are disposed of, at which time the container is refilled with new loaded magazines. 10 Means for automatically shifting and dropping magazines down the well may readily suggest themselves and may be used without departing from the spirit of the invention. It will, however, complicate the simplicity of the design as shown. 15 The magazines [5 are stiff, rectangular in shape, having any desired length and a width approximately two-thirds the length of the hairpin 3 to be contained. They are composed of a series of slots in single or multiple file running 20 the entire length of the magazine. These slots perforate the entire width of the magazines l5 and are of such size and shape as to slightly compress the tines of the hairpin and to hold it by the friction developed by this slight com- 2 pression with its head extending beyond the holder in a vertical position with respect to the length of the magazine. The magazines are loaded by inserting hairpins head first into one end of slot 5 and pushing them through the slot 30 so as to mount them in the manner indicated at 3. This holds the hair pin 3 with its head extending beyond the magazine in such a manner that it may be readily withdrawn by a single manual operation. Other available means of fastening hairpins to a suitable magazine holder readily suggest themselves and may be used.

Referring to Fig. 2, this form of the invention difiers from that illustrated by Fig. 1 in that a single magazine l4, formed of flexible tape ll and wound on a reel I8, is used.

The magazine tape roll I4 is mounted on reel I8 and tape 11 is then fed through the feed well comprising the internal separator 26 and guide 19 past stop 20 and out-guide exit 2| until the hairpin I6 is driven against stop 20. The tap I1 is fed downward through well l9 and exit 2| by gravitation due to the unbalance on reel l8 caused by the weight of the tape and the hairpins in section 22. If this is not sufficient, the tape may be unreeled by any other suitable means, such as, for instance, a weight attached to the end of the tape at 23. The feed well is cut out at 24 to expose approximately one hairpin at the time for selection. When hairpin I6 is removed, the tape I! will drop until the next hairpin 25 comes to rest against stop 20, the waste tape being guided out of exit 2|. This process is continued until the magazine is exhausted.

The hairpins mount in the flexible tape I! in a manner similar to that described for the magazines l5 used in the container'shown in Fig. 1.

What is claimed is:

In combination, a magazine holder, a magazine therein adapted to accommodate hairpins by attachment'with the loop section of said hairpins projecting therefrom and a feed well mounted adjacent said holder through which said magazine depends whereby said magazine tends to gravitate toward the lower end portion thereof comprising an end portion of suflicient size to accommodate the total width of said magazine including the hairpins projecting therefrom, a stop for engaging the hairpins in said magazine comprising a neck portion only of sufiicient size to accommodate said magazine without said hairpins and a channel portion connecting said neck portion to said other portion from which the loop section of at least one of said hairpins projects to permit its withdrawal by a single manual operation.

ORFEO CESAREO.
