Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Sept. 9, 1919.
Application filed February 7, 1918. Serial No. 215,805.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I,.HARRY T. HIPWELL, a citizen of the United States, residing at N. S. Pittsburgh, in the county of Allegheny and State of Pennsylvania, have in vented a new and useful Measuring-Can, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to measuring receptacles designed for use in discharging liquids into containers which are diflicult of access. Automobiles and machinery of different kinds often have lubricant holders into which it is very difiicult to place the lubricant because it is practically impossible to use a funnel or the like and because the receptacle cannot be tilted to discharge its contents.
One of the objects of the resent inven tion is to rovide a measurlng receptacle which can be used in the same manner as an ordinary liquid measure but which is also provided with a flexible outlet nozzle whereby all of the contents of the device can be drawn therefrom and directed to points that would otherwise be entirely inaccessible.
With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description of the invention proceeds, said invention consists of certain novel details of construction and combinations of parts which will be hereinafter more fully described and pointed out in the claim, it being understood that various changes may be made in the construction and arrangement of parts without departing from the spirit ofthe invention as set forth in the appended claim.
In the accompanying drawings the preferred form of the invention has been shown.
In said drawings v Figure 1 is a side elevation of the device, the flexible nozzle bein shown by full lines in inactive position and, by dotted lines, in active position.
Fig. 2 is an enlarged section on line 2-2, Fig. 1.
Referring to the figures by characters of reference, 1 designates a measuring receptacle which can be of the ordinary or any preferred form. In the present instancethe receptacle has the usual spout 2 which, however, is provided on its under surface with a spring clip 3.
Extending from the bottom portion of the receptacle is a cock 4 to which is connecteda flexible tube 5 and the free end portion of the tube is adapted to be engaged and held by the clip 3.
The cock 4 is normally closed and the receptacle will thus hold liquid which can be oured therefrom in the usual manner, the tube 5 being first detached from the clip 3. When it is desired to discharge the contents into a container which is not easily reached with the spout 2, the tube 5 is placed with its free end in the said container and while the measuring receptacle is held above said container, the cock 4 is opened and the contents of the receptacle will ravitate into the container.
at is claimed is 2- The combination with a measuring receptacle having a pouring spout, and a spring clip upon the bottom of the spout and extending downwardly and forwardly therefrom, of a cock extending from the bottom portion of the receptacle, and a flexible tube extending from the cock and bendable into engagement at its free end with the clip to support the end of the tube in contact with and in front ofthe delivery end of the spout for use as a pouring nozzle simultaneously with the spout.
In testimony that'I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto afiixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
