4r Claims. l
The invention relates to a dispenser for markers to be placed in various positions upon game 'boards or cards, such as are used' in playing Keeno, Lotto and similar gaines in which disc or other shaped markers are used?.
It is an object of the invention to provid-e a tubular dispenser adapted to contain a plurality or the markers and to automatically dispense a marker at any desired position upon the board or card.
Another object is to provide such a dispenser inwhichV the markers are dispensed, one at a time, by merely pressing the dispenser down upon the desired location on the board or card.
A further object is to provide a dispenser of the character referred to in which the dispenser includes a tubular container the lower end of which comprises a split, spring collet, a spring loaded sleeve beine slidably mounted upon the tubular container for normally holding the collet in closed or clampingposition to retain the markers therein, downward movement of th sleeve permitting the collet to open to dispense a marker therefrom.
A still further object of the invention is to provide such a dispenser in which the lower end of the collet has a relieved or enlarged recess to receive a marker when the sleeve is pressed down to open the collet.
The above obiects, toetether with others which will be apparent from the drawings and following description, or which may be later referred to, may be attained by constructing and operating the improved marker dispenser in the manner hereinafter described in detail, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which;
Fifzure 1 is a detached elevation of the tubular container and collet, forming a part of the dis" penser;
Fig. 2 an elevation of the complete dispenser in the normal position;
Fig. 3 a longitudinal, sectional View through the dispenser, taken as on the line 3 3, Fig. 2;
Fig. 4 a view similar to Fig. 3, showing the dispenser in the operated position;
Fig. 5 a transverse section taken on the line 5 5, Fig. 3; and
Fig. 6 a similar section taken on the line 6 6, Fig. 4.
Now referring more particularly to the structure shown in the drawing, in which similar reference numerals refer to similar parts thoughout, a preferred embodiment of the invention includes the tubular container I preferably formed of plastic material, which may be of cylindrical (c1. ias-L) 2 cross section as shown, where the markers are of disc shape.
This tubular container is provided Awith a vsliloulder or rib t l at a point spaced from its lower end, and the lower end portion of the. tube comprises a split spring collet, having the enlarged, downwardly'tapered exterior t2, the upper end t3 ofwhich is of substantially the same diameter as the. rib I'l, for a purpose to be later explained in detail.
Three or more longitudinal slots I4 are located through the lower or collet portion of the tube, extending from the lower end thereof to a point above the enlarged, tapered portion lf2, and the tube iis formed of material having sufficient spring therein to operate as a collet, as later explained.
The interior of the tube lil may have a straight, cylindrical bore l5 extending from the top. of the tube tu` a point slightly spaced from the lower end thereof, where itV is circumferentially enlarged, as indicated at 1B', forming a recess of greater diameter than the disc shapedfmarkers il, and of a height substantially the thickness of a single marker.
A sleeve i8, having an inside diameter of proper size to slidably move over the rib Il, is mounted upon the lower portion of the tube l0, and provided with the tapered lower end I9 coniol-mine to the taper of the collet l2.
An externally threaded ring 20 is screwed into the internal threads 2l at the upper end of the sleeve I8, and has an inside perimeter of suitable size to slidably fit upon the exterior of the tube I ll.
A coil spring 22 is interposed between this ring and the annular rib Il upon the tube so as to normally hold the sleeve in the upward position, as shown in Figs. 2 and 3, whereby the tapered lower end i9 of the sleeve has a wedging action upon the tapered, split spring collet portion l2 of the tube, holding the same tightly toffether so as to grip the lowermost marker l1 in the position shown in Fig. 3. A cap 23 may be placed upon the top oi the tube Ill, if desired.
When it is desired to place a marker at any desired position upon a game board or card, the dispenser is placed upon the card and the sleeve lil pushed downward, as shown in Fig. 4, permitting the spring collet portion I2 of the tube to open suii'iciently to drop the lowermost marker upon the surface of the board or card, as indicated at Ila, this lowermost marker being received in the enlarged portion t5 of the collet.
As downward pressure upon the sleeve is released the spring 22 will raise the same to the upper or normal positin shown in Figs. 2 and 3,
gripping the lowermost marker I1 remaining in the tube and leaving the marker lla in position upon the board as the dispenser is raised.
If desired, the lower edge of the collet portion may be scalloped, as shown at 24, providing only a few spaced points of contact between the end of the collet and the game board or card, so as to reduce friction and permit the collet to readily open when the sleeve IB is depressed.
We claim:
l. A device of the character described comprising a tubular container for markers, said tubular container having an internal diameter such that markers received therein will be retained in stacked relation, an externally downwardly tapered, split spring collet formed upon the lower end portion of the tube, the lower end of the collet having an internal recess of greater diameter than the marker and of a height substantially the thickness of one marker, a sleeve longitudinally slidably mounted upon the tube and having an internal downwardly tapered lower end portion receiving the tapered collet portion of the tube, and means normally holding the sleeve in raised position to clamp the lowermost marker in the collet portion.
2, A device of the character described comprising a tubular container for markers, said tubular container having an internal diameter such that markers received therein will be retained in stacked relation, an externally downwardly tapered, split spring collet formed upon the lower end portion of the tube, the lower end of the collet having an internal recess of greater diameter thanY the marker and of a height substantially the thickness of one marker, a sleeve longitudinally slidably mounted upon the tube and having an internal downwardly tapered lower end portion receiving the tapered collet portion of the tube, and spring means normally holding the sleeve in raised position to clamp the lowermost marker in the collet portion.
3. A device of the character described comprising a tubular container for markers, said tubular container having an internal diameter such that markers received therein will be retained in stacked relation, an externally downwardly tapered, split spring collet formed upon the lower end portion of the tube, the lower end of the collet having an internal recess of greater dlameter than the marker and of a height substantially the thickness of one marker, a sleeve longitudinally slidably mounted upon the tube and having an internal downwardly tapered lower end portion receiving the tapered collet portion of the tube, and spring means normally holding the sleeve in raised position to clamp the lowermost marker in the collet portion,
4. A device of the character described comprising a tubular container for markers, said tubular container having an internal diameter such that markers received therein will be retained in stacked relation, an externally downwardly tapered, split spring collet formed upon the lower end portion of the tube, the lower end of the collet having an internal recess of greater diameter than the marker and of a height substantially the thickness of one marker, an annular rib upon the exterior of the tubular container above said collet, a sleeve longitudinally slidably mounted upon the tube and having an internal downwardly tapered lower end portion receiving the tapered collet portion of the tube, an internal shoulder at the upper end of the sleeve, a spring around the tubular container between the annular rib and the internal shoulder normally holding the sleeve in raised position to clamp the lowermost marker in the collet portion.
