Description

LIQUID SOAP DISPENSER Filed Oct. 25, 1953 IN VEN TOR.

United States Patent LIQUID SOAP DISPENSER Everill .I. Hills, San Francisco, Calif.

Application October 5, 1953, Serial No. 384,023

1 Claim. (Cl. 222-180) This invention relates to improvements in soap dispensers and more particularly to a dispenser for liquid soap.

The principal object of this invention is to provide a container which will hold the soap and at the same time permit the container to be adhered to a vertical supporting surface through the use of a suction cup attached to the receptacle.

A further object is to produce a device of this character which is neat in appearance, pleasing to the eye, and one which will be economic to manufacture.

A further object is to provide means whereby the receptacle may be quickly removed from its adhered position.

Other objects and advantages will be apparent during the course of the following description.

In the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification and in which like numbers are employed to designate like parts throughout the same,

Fig. 1 is a front elevation of my liquid soap dispenser .and

Fig. 2 is a vertical cross sectional view taken on the line 2--2 of Fig. 1.

Liquid soap dispensers have been used in public restrooms for many years; these, however, are permanently attached to wall structure and are operated merely by pressing a plunger or some similar device for expressing a limited amount of soap therefrom.

Applicant has devised an arrangement which may be used in the home and which permits the soap dispenser to be removed so as to enable one to use it in any desired manner or in any desired place in the room.

Also, applicant has provided means whereby the dispenser may be quickly attached to a supporting surface, such as the tile adjacent a lavatory or shower, or to the side of a bathtub, so that liquid soap is readily available, thus eliminating the necessity of hunting a bar of soap which is often lost in the bath water or has dropped to the floor of a shower.

In the accompanying drawings, wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown a preferred embodiment of my invention, the numeral 5 designates a flexible bottle-like structure, hereinafter referred to as the receptacle.

This receptacle has a nozzle 6 which is connected to a supply pipe 7 which extends to a point adjacent the bottom of the receptacle. A plug 8 which may be removable or may be a permanent seal when the re- 2,736,468 Patented Feb. 28, 1956 "ice ceptacle is of the throw-away type, completes the receptacle.

Within the receptacle I form two inwardly arranged projections 9 and 11 which are in alignment with each other and are also in alignment with a stub 12 formed on the back of the receptacle. The projections 9 and 11 are preferably arranged so that there is a head and socket arrangement when the two are moved against each other. The stub 12 has secured thereto a suction cup 13, which suction cup has a normally closed slit 14 formed therein, the purpose of which will be later seen.

When the receptacle is filled with liquid soap or any other commodity which may be similarly used, then, if the user desires to place said receptacle on the side of the bathtub, for instance, he merely presses on the receptacle at a point directly below the nozzle 6 which causes the inner projection 9 to engage the projection 11, and if the suction cup 13 is in engagement with the side of the bathtub, the suction cup will be compressed to cause a vacuum therein, which vacuum will act in the customary manner of supporting the receptacle 5.

The projections 9 and 11 prevent collapse of the receptacle and consequently no soap or other contents will be discharged from the nozzle. When it is desired to use the receptacle for the purpose of discharging soap therefrom, the user merely lifts upwardly and outwardly on the bottom of the receptacle, thus canting the suction cup a sutficient amount to open the slit 14 and permit air to enter the cup, thus releasing the cup from the side of the tub, after which the receptacle may be squeezed and the contents thereof discharged. The receptacle is again placed on the tub, for instance, as before described, and will be readily available for use at another time.

It will thus be seen that I have produced a device which will accomplish all the objects set forth.

It is to be understood that the form of my invention herewith shown and described is to be taken as a preferred example of the same and that various changes relative to the material, size, shape and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the subjoined claim.

Having thus described my invention, I claim:

In a device of the character described, a flexibjle receptacle having a stub-like projection formed thereon, a suction cup mounted on said stub, and a pair of opposed projections mounted in said receptacle and in alignment with said stub, whereby pressure on the opposite side of said receptacle and in the direction of said stub will cause said projections to move against each other to prevent the collapse of said receptacle.
