F. PARIZEK SOAP DISPENSER Filed Nov. 8, 1955 Fg/E I I I IN V EN TOR.

l 'atented SOAP DISPENSER Ferdinand Parizek, Vienna, Austria, assignor of one-half to Walter Rift, Vienna, Austria Application November 8, 1955, Serial No. 545,703

4- Claims. (Cl. 222-181) The invention relates to a-soap dispenser in the form of a bottle, which can be fixed by a clamp to the wall in a vertical position with the opening facing downwardly and can be removed after loosening the clamp, and which is provided with a dispensing device for dispensing successive batches of liquid soap.

Soap dispensers are known, whose glass bulb has a wide filling opening, which can be closed by a screw closure provided with the batch dispenser, which is operable from the front and at right angles of the vessel by pressing. The screw closure carries an extension, which has a rear plug portion for connecting the lower part of the vessel as with a bayonet joint to a hollow body of the wall. The vessel is held at its upper end by an appropriately curved holder comprising a bail and a clamping screw and provided with a cap covering the bottom of the vessel.

Moreover, soap dispensers are known, in which complicated closures are provided, which are designed to prevent an unauthorized emptying of the entire content. These are either also tiltably carried by a simple annular bail or are screwed to the same.

It is an object of the present invention to provide a soap dispenser, whose vessel, taking the form of a bottle, is filled by a soap manufacturer remotely from the place of consumption and which is then fixed at the point of consumption to the wall thereof suitably so as to be protected against pilferage.

The essential feature of the invention resides in that the bottle having at least one flat side face can be inserted in a U-shaped holder, whose rigid lower limb serves for receiving the bottleneck whereas the upper limb rests resiliently on the bottom of the bottle. Another feature of the invention resides in that the holder comprises a short, straight web close to the lower limb, and a pair of lugs, which web and lugs determine the distance of the bottle from the wall.

This construction affords various, very important advantages, which enable a substantial improvement of the previous soap dispensers in connection with features of the invention which will be mentioned hereinafter. Above all the soap can be bottled at the place of production in a constantly uniform quality and this quality can be guaranteed and ensured by a seal at the bottle closure between the cap and screw thread. Moreover, the mode of attaching the bottle to the wall according to the invention atfords the advantage that the bottle can be inserted in position in the holder by a single manipulation, without requiring a screw joint to be loosened or other fastening means to be operated, and can be released from the fixation with the same ease. By the special construction of the bottle itself it is achieved that it can be inserted in the correct position. The closure of the bottle can be protected by a special safety ring against pilferage of the content of the bottle, as will be explained more fully in the specification.

The accompanying drawing shows an illustrative embodiment of the invention.

Fig. 1 is a side view of the soap dispenser partly in section.

Fig. 2 is a front view and Fig. 3 a bottom view of the soap dispenser.

Fig. 4 is a bottom view of the means for preventin pilferage and the closure. i

1 designates the bottle, in the illustrative embodiment a glass bottle having an approximately rectangular plan outline. The bottle comprises a rounded front wall 2 and a flat side face 3 facing the holder. The bottom 4 is formed with a depression 5 and is provided with rounded portions merging into the side faces. The neck 6 of the bottle has a square male thread 7, which serves for having screwed thereon the closure cap 8, known per se. The threaded neck 7 is terminated by. an end wall 9 having an opening 10. The hollow neck 11 of the cap 8 contains the plug 12, which serves as a batch dispenser and has a conical part 14 which projects from the interior of the cap and fits the conical opening 15 of the cap when the pin 12 is urged outwardly by the spring 19 acting on the flange 18. A packing 16 may but need not be interposed. The spring 19 may be replaced by a member having rubberlike elasticity. The spring 19 bears with one end against the flange 18, with the other end against the rim of the opening 10. When the conical part 14 is urged upwardly towards the bottleneck the batch of soap contained in the chamber 11 of cap 8 flows out and can be taken. A follow-up of soap from the bottle is prevented while the batch dispenser is in its open position because the plug 12 enters the opening 10.

The holder for the bottle 1 consists of a U-shaped bail having a base portion 20, which is affixed with screw 21 to the wall 21a. of which forms a horizontal supporting arm formed with an opening 22 and having a vertical portion 23a and straight, horizontal web connected thereto and to base part 20, whereas the other limb 24 is pivotally connected to the upper end of the base 20 by means of a hinge 25. The outermost end of the limb 24 has an offset 26. A lug 27 is stamped from the limb 24, which is downwardly and forwardly inclined and forms one support for a tension spring 28, the other end of which is suspended in a nose 30 stamped from the other limb 23. Thus it is achieved that the limb 24 clamps the bottle continuously in the position shown. When the bottle is inserted the upper limb engages the rear upper rim of the bottle at 24a. The offset 26 of the upper limb enters the depression 5 of the bottle. Moreover, a pair of lugs 31 protrude forwardly from the material of the base portion 2t) adjacent to the hinge 25 and are engaged at their ends by the bottle when inserted. Since the front wall of the bottle is rounded whereas its rear wall is flat, the insertion of the bottle in the correct position in the holder is positively ensured. When the bottle is to be inserted the resilient limb 24 is lifted against the force of the spring 28, the neck of the bottle is introduced into the hole 22 and the bottle body is turned rearwardly with slight pressure. The ofiset is caused to snap into the depression 5 of the bottle by means of an upwardly bent portion 26a. This is also facilitated by the upper rear rounded portion of the bottle neck.

The content of the bottle is protected by a seal against an unauthorized taking of soap by unscrewing the cap. The seal wire or the like is wound around the rim of the cap and the rear part of the square male thread. An additional locking device is provided to prevent the unscrewing of the closure and the theft of the bottle from the holder. The rear part of the limb 23 has a pin 34 arranged thereon, which carries two rotatable crescent-shaped elements 35, which overlap at the front The bail has two limbs, one 23 L v n 1 x7 h I I a 7 side and have lugs 35a formed with holes 36, through which a.padlock;37 can be stuck. Both crescent-shaped' elements 35 are formed attheir rear end with arms 38, be w en w i p in fi39 t n W the p lockis openedor removed, the spring 39 will causejthe 'two crescent-shaped elements 35 to.sp'ring. from' the closing position shown in the drawinginto the ope'njposi: t ion, whereby the bottle isreleased for being taken-from the holder; jTo prevent the closure'of the bottle'fro'm being unscrewed each ofthe crescent-shaped elements is formed iwith'a flange 40, which of the cap 8 in the lockingposition.
