Description

Oct. 9, 1956 R Q ELLlOTT 2,765,959

DISPENSER FOR PRESSURIZEiD CONTAINERS Filed Sept. 9, 1953 ATTORNEYS United States Patent DISPENSER FOR PRESSURIZED CONTAINERS This invention relates to a holder and dispensing means for pressurized containers of that type wherein the contents are packed under pressure and such containers are provided with valve means customarily operable by a sidewise pressure on a dispensing spout.

The invention is particularly applicable to dispensers for shaving cream although it may be equally advantageously utilized in connection with such pressurized containers for other contents.

A primary object of the invention is the provision of a simple, neat, attractive, sanitary and inexpensive holder for such containers which holder is provided with a simple means whereby the valve of the container may be readily operated with a minimum of effort and difliculty and in such a manner that the same hand moves into position to receive the contents ejected from the container.

An additional object of the invention is the provision of such a dispensing device which may be readily attached to or detached from a supporting surface, such as a bathroom wall or the like, and which is adapted to hold the can in a vertical position most convenient for dispensing the contents thereof.

Still another object of the invention is the provision of such a device provided with means whereby the can or container may be readily removed and replaced.

Still other objects reside in the combination of elements, arrangement of parts and features of construction, all as will be more fully pointed out hereinafter and disclosed in the accompanying drawings wherein there is shown the preferred embodiment of this inventive concept.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a front elevational view of the dispensing device of the instant invention shown as attached to a wall surface.

Figure 2 is an enlarged sectional view taken substantially along the line 22 of Figure 1 as viewed in the direction indicated by the arrows.

Figure 3 is a sectional view taken substantially along the line 3-3 of Figure 2, as viewed in the direction indicated by the arrows.

Similar reference characters refer to similar parts throughout the several views of the drawings.

Having reference now to the drawings in detail, there is generally indicated at 10, the dispensing device of the instant invention which is adapted for dispensing the contents of a container or can 11 adapted to contain shaving cream or the like under pressure.

Can 11 includes a body portion 12, an upper tapered head portion 13, a neck 14, and a tilting apertured dispensing spout 15. Dispensing spout 15 is connected to an interiorly positioned valve of any desired type which is adapted to open upon tilting of spout 15 to permit the ejection of the pressurized contents of the can.

Preferably can 11 has a concave bottom portion 16. The can above described is of conventional construction and, per se, forms no part of the instant invention.

Referring now in detail to the dispensing device 10,

the latter is comprised of a body portion 20, preferably cylindrical in contour and having an interior tubular chamber 21 of a diameter adapted snugly to receive the body portion of the can 11. The lower portion of the cylindrical chamber 21 is provided with a peripheral tapered shoulder 23 upon which the edge of the tapered upper portion 13 of the can is adapted to rest to hold the same snugly in position.

The upper part of body portion 20 is provided with an externally threaded flange 24 adapted for the reception of corresponding internal threads 25 carried by a cover portion or closure 26. The interior of the top of cover portion 26 is provided with a recess 27 adapted for the reception of one end of the coil spring 28 which latter bears against the concave bottom 16 of can 11 for holding the latter firmly against the shoulder 23. Body portion 20 has on one side thereof a projection 30 having spaced vertical channels 31 therein, open at their lower and closed at their upper ends as at 32.

The channels 31 are adapted for the reception of the inwardly turned marginal flanges 33 of a mounting plate 34, the latter being adapted to be secured to a wall or other suitable mounting surface 35 as by means of screws 36 or the like.

By means of this mounting, it will be seen that the container may be readily removed from or applied to the mounting plate 34 as desired.

The lower portion of the dispenser is provided with an inwardly turned flange 40 surrounding opening 41 through which dispensing spout 15 depends.

One side of the lower portion 40 is provided with an inwardly projecting lug 42 having a recess 43 therein adapted to be closed at its outer end by a nut 44 having a central aperture and at its inner end by an apertured flange 45.

A stem 46 extends through the apertures in nut 44 and flange 4S and is surrounded by a coil spring 47 positioned Within the recess 43. A locking pin 48 extends through the stem 46 and is adapted to compress the spring 47 when the stem 46 is pushed inwardly by means of a push button 49. The end of stem 46 is internal of the device and abuts the dispensing spout 15.

From the foregoing the operation of the device should now be readily understandable. The container is mounted on a suitable wall surface in the manner previously described and upon removal of cap 26, a dispensing can or container 11 may be positioned interiorly thereof with the spout 15 depending through aperture 41. Replacement of cover 26 will now firmly hold the article in position within the dispensing device.

Obviously, pressure on operating button 49 will cause dispensing spout 15 to tilt inwardly, thus discharging the contents or a desired portion thereof onto the palm of the hand or into a receptacle. It may here be noted that the tiltable spout of the can is automatically self-returning to vertical position.

From the foregoing, it will now be seen that there is herein provided a dispensing device which accomplishes all of the objects of this invention and others including many advantages of great practical utilization and commercial importance.

As many embodiments may be made of this inventive concept and as many modifications may be made of the embodiment hereinbefore shown and described, it is to be understood that all matter herein is to be interpreted merely as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

What is claimed is:

In a dispensing receptacle for cans of pressurized material of the type having a tiltable valve controlling spout, said can containing receptacle having an open bottom and an open top, a closure for said top, means holding a can in said container with the dispensing spout extending through the open bottom, said means including shoulde rs in said receptacle and a spring between said closure and the bottom of said can biasing said can against said shoulders, said can being telescoped within said receptacle, and laterally movable means extending through the side Wall of said receptacle for engaging and tilting said tiltable valve controlling spout, said last mentioned means comprising a stem removably abutting said spout, spring means biasing said stem outwardly of said receptacle,

and a push button on the outer end of said stem for mov- 10 ing said stem inwardly to tilt said spout.
