CRUSHABLE CONTAINER Filed May 3, 1949 INVENTOR HAROLD R. BISHOP BY Q i ATToRNl-:Y

Patented Mar. l27, 1951 UNITED STT'S `CHRUSHABLE CONTAINER Harold Rogers Bishop, New York, N. Y., assigner to Nips, Inc., New York, N. Y., a corporation of Delaware 3 Claims.

This invention comprises improvements in crushable containers of the type used for various purposes such as ammonia inh iants, perfume dispensers and the like.

An object of this invention is to provide a construction for crushable containers which improves the appearance, utility and effectiveness of such devices.

yAnother object of the invention is to provide a construction which insures against injury to the user when the liquid container which is of glass is broken.

A still further object of the invention is to provide a construction in such a device which facilitates the release of the liquid.

Another object of the invention is to provide a construction which is adapted to reduce manufacturing costs.

Other and more detailed objects of the invention will be apparent from the following description of the embodiment thereof illustrated in the attached drawing,

In the accompanying drawing- Figure 1 is an elevational View of a crushable container in accordance with this invention;

Figure 2 is an exploded elevational view thereof showing the parts comprising the same; and

Figure 3 is a cross sectional View taken on the line 3-3 of Figure 1.

As illustrated in Figure 2, the complete structure consists of a vial or ampule lil of some suitable material such as glass sealed to retain the liquid content L, no matter what it bey against leakage and evaporation. The ampule is enclosed within a tube i i of suitable material such as paper impregnated with a water repellent material, fiber, thin plastic or other nonabsorbent material. As illustrated, the tube Ii is provided with one or more slits or perforations I2. The tube encased ampule is then slipped into a woven or braided tubular casing I3, itself made of any suitable material such' as natural or synthetic fibers. The ends cf the outer casing I3 are closed adjacent the ends of the tube l! by any suitable fastening means l5 which may be of metal, plastic material or even a tightly wrapped binding thread. The terminal ends lli are preferably caused, in any suitable manner, to be unravelled slightly to give tuft ends to the article, thereby improving its appearance.

rThe improvements resulting from this construction arerst, that the protective tubing l l is suiiiciently form sustaining so as to give the iinished article an appearance of regularity not irregular shaped practice. Furthermore, the protective tubing li serves to provide a uniform and semi-rigid surface which facilitates the application of a label to the exterior casing i3 or aids in printing' or otherwise impressing on the surface thereof any identifying legend that may be desirable. Also, the tubing ll protects the user against possible injury when the container is broken by crushing or otherwise at the time the nuid is to be released. In addition to preventing the glass fragments in the case of a glass ampule from cutting the user, it also serves to prevent the unsightly effect of having these fragments work through the outer casing I3 as is frequently true without the use of the sleeve H. Also, the provision of the protective tube Ii facilitates the introduction of the ampule into the woven or braided outer tubular casing i3 by preventing the more or less pointed end of the rampule I,from entangling with the meshes of the outer tubing as is frequently the oase when the ampule itself is forced endwise into the outer casing.

Also, the application of a label or printing to the outer casing may be effected by machine, thereby speeding up the process of manufacture by reason of the protection afforded the ampule. Likewise, the danger of fracture of the ainpule 'at the ends in the machine application of the binding l5 is minimized -by use of the sleeve Il. Finally, the slits l2 in the sleeve facilitate the escape of the liquid when the ampule is broken to the outer absorbent casing IS which quickly absorbs it by capillary action.

Thus, it will be seen by the simple structural improvement herein disclosed that a wide variety of advantages are obtained which simplify and facilitate manufacture of the devices and increase the usefulness thereof by preventing possibility of injury to the user.

It will be apparent to those skilled in the art that the subject matter of this invention is capable of some variation and do not desire therefore to be limited except as required by the appended claims.

What is claimed is:

l. An article of the type described comprising a crushable vial, a perforate sleeve enclosing said vial, an absorbent covering overlying said sleeve, and means for closing the ends of said covering, said sleeve comprising a fiuid repellent tube having one or more openings.

2. An article of the type described comprising a crushable vial, a perforate sleeve enclosing said vial, an absorbent covering overlying said sleeve, and means for closing the ends of Said covering, said sleeve comprising a uid repellent tube having one or more openings in the form of slits.

3. An article of the type described comprising a crushable vial, a perforate sleeve enclosing said vial, an absorbent covering overlying said sleeve, and means for closing the ends of said covering,

said sleeve comprising a brous material impreg- 10 nated with a liquid repellent.
