" ApplicationNovembe'r 18, 1946, Serial No.710,-554

"3.0lai'ms;

This invention relates to a liquid dispenser, particularly adapted for applying a liquid cleaner on wax tohardw'ood floors.

The prime object of the invention isto combine or associate a liquid'container with a pad or brush, mounted onahandle, with means to control'the dispensing of liquid from the-container to the-rear of a brush or the like.

A further'object of the invention is to provide a liquid dispensing container in the form of a standard jar, as for instance, a fruit jar, with suitable valve mechanismoperabl'e by controlson a handle to control the dischargeof liquid.

- i A" still further object of the invention is to provide means f-or dispensing liquid toa floor adja cent a pad or brush, so that the pad or brushcan uniformly spread the; liquid when the dispenser is reciprocated.

Another object of the invention is to provide valve-means-for'controlling the dispensing of liquidadjacenta brush or pad-to spread'same over a floor.

A further-object of'theinvention is to provide in a liquid dispenser, a liquid container slidable in a frame or cradle to open or close liquid exit openings i controlled by a valve.

In the accompanying drawings:

Figure lis"a" plan View of the:liquid: dispensing device, parts being broken away for convenience of illustration, the position of the liquidcontainer being'indicated by brokernlines.

Figure '2 is aside view of'Figure 1, illustrating the'liquid container in position.

Figure 3 is'an'enlarged fragmentary sectional view of the device illustrating the valve within the liquid container in closed position and taken on line AB of Figure 1.

Figure 4 is a sectional view of the device taken on line AB of Figure 1 illustrating the valve in open position.

Figure 5 is an underneath perspective view of the device with the pad or brush removed.

The liquid dispenser consists of a frame I, including a rearwardly and upwardly inclined cradle and a flat forwardly extending horizontal flange 2. To the flange 2 is attached a suitable pad or brush 3, the same being secured in position by a bolt 4, passing through an opening 5 formed in the flange 2, and held in position by a nut 6.

In the lower end of the cradle is formed a transverse trough formed in its bottom with a series of exit openings 8 for spreading liquid to the floor surface 9, the liquid being delivered to the trough from a container l0 supported in the cra- 2 dle. The container {0' may consist of an ordinary fruit jarorthe like, having a lid H screwed there- The fiat portion i3 of the lid H is formed with a hub I5, and'a-threaded annular flange l2 to engage'the threaded end of the container.

A stem [4 extends through the hub lfiyand a flexiblegasket I6 is-interposed between the lid and the mouth I! of the container IE to form a seal. The'gasket It and the lid II are formed with exit openings 3, controlled by a valve i9, adjustably mounted on. the upper end; of the stem l l by a'djusting'screws 2i which are threaded through a cross bar 21, secured to theinner end of the stem as shown at 22.. .The' ends of the adjusting screws 29 are rotatably mounted in a flange 23; forming part of the valve 91" The screws 2.6 provide means for adjustingithe valve toward and from the lidto regulate the amount of, liquid delivered through the exit openings l8, as shown at 24; Y J The lower endof the stem Hi is provided with a head 25 which seats against a flange 26 extending forwardly and upwardly from the lower end of the cradle: A spring 21 surrounds the stem 14', and at one end bears against the head 25, and 'its opposite end surrounds the hub l5 and bears. against the flat part I3 of the lid'l l'. The spring. holds the head of the stem against the flange 26 and forces the. 'containerupwardly in the. cradle and the lid up against the valve IE to close the openings [3, as shown in Fig. 3. The container It isrsupported in the cradle, andsprin'gclips 25; are employed to retain it in position, as best shown in Fig. 2. 29 indicates a hollow handle fitted in a socket 32, from which extends two rods 3| which pass through sleeves 30 on the sides of the cradle. The lower ends of the rods are bent horizontally and pass through openings 33 in the flange 26, and are secured to the flat forwardly extending horizontal flange 2, as shown at 33.

A plunger rod 3 5 extends through the handle. The rod is provided at its lower end with a head 35 which engages the upper closed end of the container it), as shown at 36. The upper end of the plunger rod 34 has a knob 3'! for the operator to press the plunger rod down against the container. When the plunger rod 34 is depressed, it slides the container in the cradle against the tension of the spring 21, and forces the lid H away from the valve I9, which allows liquid to pass through the exit openings 8 to the trough l, as shown in Fig. 4. Thus the liquid is free to flow through the exit openings 18 to the trough and from there distributed through the exit openings 8 to the floor in rear of the pad or brush.

Upon release of pressure on the knob 37, the spring 21 will act to return the container and plunger rod to normal position. Thus the lid I l is brought into contact with the valve and the exit openings I 8 are closed.

What I claim is:

1. A liquid dispenser, comprising a frame curved in cross section to form a cradle provided at its lower end with a transverse trough having exit openings in its bottom, a liquid container having exit openings formed in one of its ends and slidably mounted in the cradle, a flange extending upwardly and forwardly from the lower end of the cradle, a valve on the inside of the container to control the exit openings in the end of said container, a stem extending through the end of the container and the valve, the lower end of the stem having a head which engages the forwardly and upwardly extending flange, a cross bar secured to the upper end of the stem, screws threaded in the cross bar with their inner ends rotatably mounted on the valve, a spring between the lower end of the container and; the head on the stem to normally urge the container upwardly in the cradle to close the valve, a handle extending from the cradle, and means on the handle engaging the upper end of the container for sliding said container downwardly in the cradle against the tension of the spring to open the valve for release of liquid through the exit openings in the end of the container to the transverse trough.

2. A liquid dispenser comprising a frame including a flat forwardly extending horizontal flange and a cradle extending upwardly and rearwardly from the flat horizontal flange, a transverse liquid receiving trough formed at the bottom of the cradle adjacent the flat forwardly extending horizontal flange, the bottom of the trough having formed therein a series of exit openings, a flange extending forwardly and upwardly between the lower end of the cradle and the fiat forwardly extending horizontal flange, a slidably mounted liquid container supported in the cradle with the lower end extended over the transverse trough, the lower end of the container having a series of exit openings formed therein, a valve located on the inside of the lower end of the container for controlling the exit openings in the lower end of the container, a stem having a head engaging the upwardly and forwardly extending flange, the stem extending through the lower end of the container, and into the lower end of said container, a spring surrounding the stem and interposed between the head and the lower end of the container, means mounted on the inner end of the stem for regulating the position of the valve with reference to the exit openings in the lower end of the container, a handle extending from the cradle, and means carried by the handle engaging the upper end of the liquid container for sliding the container downwardly in the cradle against the tension of the spring to open the valve for release of liquid through the exit openings in the lower end of the container to the trough.

3. A liquid dispenser, comprising a supporting frame, including a rearwardly and upwardly extending cradle and a fiat forwardly extending horizontal flange and an upstanding flange projecting upwardly from the flat forwardly extending flange, a transverse trough formed in the bottom of the cradle adjacent the flat forwardly extending horizontal flange, a series of exit openings formed in the bottom of the transverse trough, a liquid container slidably mounted in the cradle with its lower end extending over the transverse trough, the lower end of the container having formed therein a series of exit openings, valve mechanism at the lower end of the liquid container including a spring pressed normally closed valve engaging the inner surface of the lower end of the container and a stem projecting from the valve with its free end in engagement with the upstanding flange for controlling discharge of liquid from the exit openings in the lower end of the container, a handle secured to the cradle, and means on the handle engaging the upper end of the container to slide liquid container in the cradle to free the exit openings in the lower end of the container to permit discharge of liquid through the exit openings in the lower end of the container to the transverse trough.
