United States Patent O CRICKET CONTAINER Allen T. Armstrong, Glennville, Ga.; Myrle McMahon Armstrong, executrix of said Allen T. Armstrong, deceased, assignor to Armstrongs Cricket Farm, West Monroe, La., a partnership Application July 6, 1954, Serial No. 441,217

1 Claim. (Cl. 224-5) The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in containers for crickets and other baits and has for one of its important objects to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, a device of this character comprising a novel construction whereby the crickets may be conveniently dispensed one at a time.

Another important object of the invention is to provide a container of the aforementioned character from which, when in an upright position or substantially so, the crickets or other insects or baits will not escape even though the device is left open.

Still another important object of the invention is to provide a container of the character described which may be expeditiously loaded and which, further, may be conveniently cleaned when desired and maintained in a sanitary condition.

All of the foregoing and still further objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent from a study of the following specification, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing wherein like characters `of reference designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, and wherein:

Figure 1 is a perspective View of a cricket container constructed in accordance with the present invention;

Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view, taken substantially on the line 2-2 of Figure 1;

Figure 3 is a view in horizontal section, taken substantially on the line 3 3 of Figure 1; and

Figure 4 is a fragmentary View in horizontal section, taken substantially on the line 4-4 of Figure 2.

Referring now to the drawing in detail, it will be seen that the embodiment of the invention which has been illustrated comprises a cylindrical cage '5 of suitable material, preferably hardware of a desired mesh, and wholly foraminous circumferentially of the cage. The cage 5 has fixed on its lower end portion a metallic screw ring 6. A removable bottom cap 7 is threaded on the ring 6. It will be noted that the cage 5, which may be of any suitable dimensions or capacity, is open at both ends.

Fixed on the upper end portion of the cage 5 is a substantially conical neck 8 of suitable smooth material, preferably metal. The conical neck 8 terminates at its upper end in a reversely .tapered mouth 9 for the reception of a stopper 10. The neck 9 terminates at its upper 2,756,912 Patented July 3l, 1956 rice end in a bead 11 and flares uniformly upwardly 'and outwardly.

A loop 12 of suitable rope or cord is secured to the container at the juncture of 'the neck 8 and mouth 9 whereby the device may be suspended from the neck of the user. Fixed on the lower portion of the neck 8 and depending therefrom is a clip 13 for engagement with a belt for mounting the device thereon.

It is thought that the manner in which the device is used will be readily apparent from a consideration of the foregoing. Briefly, with the stopper 10 in position in the mouth 9, ythe cage 5 is inverted and the cap 7 is removed therefrom. The cage S is then loaded with crickets or other baits and the cap 7 is replaced. When a bait is desired, the stopper 10 is removed and the cage 5 is inverted suiciently to permit the desired bait to be shaken therefrom. The construction and arrangement of the elements 8 and 9 is such that but a single cricket or other bait will emerge. With the device suspended in a substantially upright position by either the loop 12 or the clip 13, the smooth interior of the conical neck 8 will prevent the escape of the crickets even though the stopper 10 is not replaced. To feed the crickets or to clean the cage 5, the closure cap 7 is removed.

Although a preferred embodiment of the device is as illustrated and described, it is to be understood that changes in the details of construction may be resorted to which will fall within the scope of the invention as claimed.

What is claimed as new is as follows:

A cricket container of the character described comprising, a substantially cylindrical cage of uniform diameter throughout and wholly foraminous circumferentially of the cage, said cage being for the reception of the crickets and being open at its ends, a screw ring fixed on the lower end portion of the cage, a removable bottom cap threadedly mounted on said ring, a substantially conical dispensing neck, having a smooth interior, fixed on the upper end portion of the cage, said neck terminating at its upper end in a reversely tapered mouth flaring uniformly upwardly and outwardly, a removable stopper in said mouth, and means for suspending the cage in an upright position from a support, said means comprising a flexible loop secured around the neck at the juncture of said reversely tapered mouth therewith.
