Description

NOV- 11, 1941- J. A. FERRARA LIFTER FOR'CANS OR THE LIKE Filed Aug. 5, 1939 Patented Nov. 11, 1941 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 7 Claims.

This invention pertains to lifters for cans and the like and provides an article of the described class to be used for lifting any can or other utensil which has a ila-nge or bead at the upper periphery thereof.

A further object of this invention is to provide an article of the described class which permits the lifting and carrying of utensils containing hot or cold material which would be uncomfortable or dangerous to handle with the bare hands and which may also be readily attached and detached from the article to which it may be temporarily attached.

A still further and highly important object of the invention is to provide a lifter which is extremely simple in construction and which at the same time is sufliciently rugged to withstand constant and frequent use.

A still further important object of the invention is to provide a device which may be formed from a single piece of material, thereby reducing substantially the cost of manufacture.

On the drawing:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the preferred form of this invention.

Fig. 2 is a cross sectional View taken substantially along the line 2-2 of Fig. 3.

Fig. 3 is a top plan view of that form of the device otherwise shown in Figs. 1 and 2.

Fig. 4 is a cross sectional View taken along the line 4-4 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 5 is a cross sectional view of a modified form of my invention which includes hand operable lever means for restricted movement of the retainer clip, hereinafter described.

Fig. 6 is a top plan View of that modified form of the invention otherwise shown in Fig. 5.

Fig. 7 is a cross sectional View taken along the line T-l of Fig. 5.

As shown on the drawing:

The numeral I indicates the handle portion of my invention which, in its preferred form, for the purpose of giving additional strength thereto, has formed along the lateral edges thereof the pair of down-turned parallel flanges shown on the drawing and indicated by the numeral Ia.

Formed of the same piece of material, but bent downwardly with respect to the handle at an obtuse angle substantially as shown in Fig. 1 is a head portion 2, which together with the other portions formed integral therewith and hereinafter described forms the lower support for my device when attached to a can or utensil.

Illustrated on the drawing and indicated by the numeral 2a and formed, as shown, at the lowermost portion of the head portion are a pair of protrusions which are placed outwardly from the main body of the material. Also formed on head portion 2 are the pair of outwardly formed lugs 2b in opposed relation to one another forming supports to underlie the bead of the can or vessel to be lifted.

Centrally formed with relation to elements 2b is an upwardly extending portion 2c which is formed when clip portion 3, hereinafter described, is shaped from the main body of the material.

The numeral 3 is used to indicate the engaging and retaining clip or hook which is preferably formed integral with the main body of the material forming the remainder of the device, and which is provided with the pair of downwardly extending projections or lugs indicated by the numeral 3a. Formed from the main body of the material and extending upwardly along a portion of the clip 3 and substantially in the direction of the handle is a rib indicated by the numeral 4, the purpose of which is to lend strength to the clip or hook portion 3 and to prevent portion 3 from being sprung excessively out of its normal position in relation to the head 2.

As is particularly shown in Fig. 2, wherein the device, shown in Fig. 1 is illustrated in cross section, the forwardmost portions of the protruding elements 2a, the aperture formed between the respective projections or lugs 3a and the upwardly extending portion 2c, are in substantially the same perpendicular plane when the device is inserted over the bead in a can for the purpose of lifting.

The modied form of the invention shown in Figs. 5, 6 and 7 differs somewhat in structure from that form otherwise shown in the drawing, in that instead of clip portion 3 being formed integral with the handle, the said clip portion 3 comprises additionally a separate piece of metal lying above but in the same general longitudinal plane of the handle portion I throughout approximately half its length, as particularly illustrated in Fig. 5, and thence extends backward and upward in the direction of the end of the handle to form a lever portion indicated by the numeral 3b.

As shown in Fig. 6, clip portion 3 and its rearward projecting portion near the handle is held in close but slightly movable relation to handle I by means of the pair of lugs Ib which are struck from the main body portion of the handle I and bent, as particularly shown in Fig. 7, to overextend opposite sides of the clip portion 3. As

shown in Figs. 5 and 6, a further portion of the rearwardmost part of the clip 3,v indicated by numeral 3d, is struck out of portion 3b and bent downward to Contact handle portion I to act as an integrally formed spring element for the purpose of imparting spring-like action to the handle 3b and the clip 3 formed integral therewith. The rearwardmost portion of the element 3b is preferably dished slightly as shown and indicated by numeral 3d to form a thumb-rest or thumbguiding portion.

That modied form of the invention shown in Figs. 5, 6 and 7 is particularly useful in that, in this form of construction the clip portion 3 may be moved upwardly by downward pressure on lever portion 3b so that the bead of a receptacle may be more easily engaged by the several gripping elements shown on the drawing and above described.

The specific detail of the drawing and specication is not to be construed as limitations upon the invention, its concept or structural embodiment as to the whole or any part thereof except as dened in the appended claims.

I claim:

1'. In a device for gripping beaded cans; a handle portion, and an angularhead portion, integral projections formed on said head portion and projecting from the face thereof; and a lever secured intermediate its ends to said handle portion and having integral lugs on the end of said lever, and spring means for normally holding said lever in bead-engaging position.

2. In a device for gripping heated containers, an elongated substantially flat handle, a head portion formed integral with said handle member and extending at an angle with respect thereto, a pair of spaced apart lugs formed integral with said head portion and projecting from the outer fiat face thereof, a pair of lower spaced apart outer projecting lugs formed integral with said head portion, and a bead-engaging clip member having an angularly bent end formed integral with said handle and projecting from the outer surface of said handle and of said head, said end being spaced apart from said first-mentioned projecting lugs.

3. In an article of the described class, the combination of a handle, a clip lying in substantially the general longitudinal plane of the handle,

downturned projections on said clip at substantially right angles thereto, a downturned integral head portion at an angle to said handle, protrusions at the outermost end of said head portion, and a pair of projections extending outwardly from the face of said head portion substantially opposite said clip projections.

4. In an article of the described class struck from a single piece of material, the combination of a handle portion, an integral head portion formed at an angle to said handle portion, a clip struck from the material forming the device and extending outward from the face of said head portion, said struck-out clip forming an elongated aperture in said handle portion, downturned projecting lugs on said clip, a pair of lugs struck and extending outwardly from the face of said head portion at the lateral edges of the aperture in said head.'

5. In a device for gripping beaded cans; a handle portion, and an angular head portion, integral projections formed on said head portion and projecting from the face thereof, a lever secured intermediate its ends to said handle portion and having integral lugs on the end of said lever and extending toward said head projections, and a spring formed integral with said lever and adapted to normally hold said angular lugs in bead-engaging position.

6. In an article of the described class the combination of a body comprising a handle portion, a head portion formed integral with said handle portion and extending at an angle thereto, protruding elements formed substantially at the outermost end of said head, outwardly extending lug elements formed intermediate of the length of said head portion, a guidable clip lying in a plane above said handle portion, lugs on said clip downturned in the direction of said head portion, means for retaining said clip in position above the body portion and digitally operable means for varying the position of said clip relative to said head.

'7. In a device for gripping and holding beaded receptacles, the combination of a handle and an integral head portion formed angularly thereto froma single piece of metal, outwardly extending protrusions formed at the extremity of said head for contact with a receptacle body substantially below the bead of the receptacle, outwardly extending protrusions formed at the intermediate portion of said head for contact with the outer surfaces of the receptacle below the bead thereof, and a spring-clip extending outwardly from and in the plane of the handle, said i spring-clip extending beyond said head and being bent downwardly at its extremity in the direction of the head for contact with the top of the bead of the receptacle.
