PLASTIC CONTAINER HAVING AN ELONGATABLE SPOUT 7 Filed Oct. 15, 1953 [Lu-L lllllllll Illll mun 'lllllllllll'l INVENTOR. JOSEPH B. B/EDERMAN United States Patent() PLASTIC CONTAINER HAVING AN ELONGATABLE SPOUT Joseph B. Biederman, Cincinnati, Ohio Application October 15, 1953, Serial No. 386,232 3 Claims. (Cl. 222-211) This invention relates to a dispenser for fluids.

An object of this invention is to provide a dispenser having a flexible spout which can be adjusted in length and which can be bent or turned to reach around corners, difiicultly accessible locations, and the like.

A further object of this invention is to provide a container having a spout which can be slid or pushed into the container when not in use.

A further object of this invention is to provide a container having a flexible spout which can be pulled out of or pushed into a container to adjust the length of the spout.

The above and other objects and features of the invention will be apparent to those of ordinary skill in the art to which this invention pertains, from the following description, taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawing.

In the drawing:

Figure 1 is a view partly in elevation and partly in transverse section showing a liquid-dispensing container constructed in accordance with an embodiment of this invention, the spout of the container being shown in retracted position;

Fig. 2 is a view in side elevation showing the container with the spout in extended position; and

Fig. 3 is an enlarged view in section showing a portion of the spout and the plug through which the spout extends.

In the following detailed description, and the drawing, like reference characters indicate like parts.

In the drawing, a hollow container is shown. The container has an opening 11 at the top provided with a collar 12 in which an annular plug 13 is received. The plug 13 is provided with a central opening 14 through which a tube or spout 16 of flexible plastic material extends.

The outside wall of the tube 16 frictionally engages the wall of the plug opening 14 so that a substantially fluid-tight joint is formed between the plug 13 and the tube 16. The tube 16 can be pushed through the plug 13 into the container, as shown in Figure l, for storage, or it may be pulled outwardly, as shown in Fig. 2, to a sufficient length for use. As shown most clearly in Fig. 3, there are a plurality of annular ribs 16' on the interior of the plug opening 14 to form a fluid-tight joint, there being annular spaces 16" between the ribs to catch any fluid which may penetrate past one of the ribs. An enlarged end 16" on the tube prevents inadvertent withdrawal of the tube from the container. As shown, the

. 2 spout may be bent to reach around corners and into diflicultly accessible locations or spots.

When the container is squeezed, fluid from the container is squirted through the spout and applied to the intended spots. The container 10, plug 13 and tube 16 may be formed of polyethylene plastic material or the like, which is resilient and can be squeezed.

When the container is not in use, the spout may be pushed into the container, as shown in Figure 1. A cap 17 is provided which covers and closes the spout when not in use. The outside of the cap may be of any preferred shape and is here shown as a figurine. .As shown, the cap is hollow and has an elongated, tapered opening or bore 18 therein, into which the outer end of the spout 16 projects. A pin 19 may be formed coaxially with the opening 18 of the cap. When the cap 17 is applied, the point of pin 19 is received in the tip of the spout and closes it.

When the spout is to be closed, into the container until the greater part of the spout is inside the container. Cap 17 is then placed over the spout and seated on collar 12 as shown in Figure 1. As the cap is seated, the spout is pushed farther into the container. tween the outer end of the tubular spout 16 and the pin 19 of the cap. As shown, a collar portion 20 of the cap is coaxial with the bore 18 and embraces the collar of the container to hold the cap in place thereon.

As shown in the drawing, the container is provided with a metal weight 21 which holds the container normally in upright position. Thecontainer is formed from two generally hemispherically shaped portions 10a and 10b. The portions 10a and 10b are provided with flanges 22 and 23, respectively, which are attached together adhesively and which form a skirt around the container 10 to prevent inadvertent overbalancing thereof.

The container illustrated in the drawing and described above is subject to structural modification without departing from the spirit and scope of the appended claims.

Having described by invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

'1. A dispenser of liquid comprising a hollow container having at the top thereof an opening, a plug in the opening, said plug having an opening communicating with the interior of the container, a one-piece flexible spout slidably disposed in and frictionally engaging the walls of said plug opening, whereby the spout may be adjustably extended into and withdrawn from said container, the length of the spout being greater than the length of the container, the spout being adapted to curl inside the container when extended into the container, a collar on the container surrounding the container opening, a cap overlying the outer end of the spout, said cap having a collar portion engageable with the outside of the collar of the container and being provided with an elongated'bore into which the spout projects, and a pin inside the bore and substantially coaxial therewith for engaging the interior of the outer end of the spout to close the spout.

2. A dispenser of liquid comprising a hollow container having at the top thereof opening communicating with the interior of the container, a one-piece flexible spout the spout is pushed Thus, a tight and secure fit is provided beof said. opening, whereby the spout may be adjustably extended into and withdrawn from said container, a collar on the container surrounding the opening, cap removably overlying the outer end of the spout, said cap having a collar portion engageable with the outside of the collar of the container and being provided with an elongated bore into which the spout projects, and a pin inside the bore and substantially coaxial therewith for engaging the interior of the outer end of the spout to close the spout.

3. A dispenser of liquid comprising a hollow squeezable container having at the top thereof an opening, a plug of polyethylene plastic material in the opening, said plug having an opening communicating with the interior of .the container, there, being a plurality of annular'ribs on the interior of the plug opening, and a tubular flexible spout of polyethylene plastic slidably disposed in and frictionally engaging the ribs 01': said plug opening to .form a fluid-tight seal between the spout and the container, whereby the spout may be adjustably extended into and withdrawn from said container.
