Specification of Letters ratent.
Patented Feb. 17, 1920.
F Application filed November 17. 1917. semi 110. 202.670.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HERBERT BARNETT, a
subject of the King of Great Britain, residing at Kansas City, in the county of J ackson and State of Missouri, have invented new and useful Improvements in Oil-Cans, of which the following is a-specification.
This invention oomprehends improvements in metallic oil cans. The primary object of the invention resides in the production of a can of the above stated character which'is simple in construction, durable and efficient in use, and
one wherein provision is made of a. body for the can so designed to enable the operator to firmly grasp the bottom of the can when it becomes necessary to lift or tilt the canwhen in a filled condition; asheretofore the necessary gripping action on the can without the liability of such slipping or dropping from the hand of the operator, more especially in view ofthe nature of the contents of the can, could not be successfully obtained.
With the above and other objects in view, the invention consists in the novel features,
details of'oonstruction and combination of parts which will hereinafter be more fully set forth, illustratedin the accompanying drawing-and pointed out in the appended claim.
In the drawings:
Figure 1 is a perspective viewof an oil can illustrating the same in a tilted position by the operator;
Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional View; and
Fig. 3 is a bottom plan view.
Referring more particularly t0' the accompanying drawing, the preferred embodinientof the invention illustrated in the accompanying drawin is that of an oil can comprising a cylin rical body portion 5, a filling opening 6 provided centrally in the inverted conical-shaped top 7, and the bail 8 is piyotally mounted in the ears Qadapted to be grasped by one hand of the operator when the can is either being conveyed or tilted.
shown in Fig. 1 of the drawing. To this end, the bottom 10, on an axial horizontal line is stamped or depressed inwardl to provide within the can. body a substantially U-shaped hand grip 12, and so designed to facilitate a firm grasp of the hand within the recess 13 thereof. In other words, the hand grip 12 by being struck inwardly of the bottom 10, permits the bottom 10 of the can,
' upon thev transportation or storage thereof, to sit in a flat condition, preventing any liaconstruction, it is manifest that when the tip ends of the fingers of the operator are inserted inthe contracted inner end 18 there- '0f, the flared outer end 17 of the recess accommodates sufiicientcapacity for the hand, because as is obvious it is necessary for the operator to close his hand when desiring to obtain the necessary gripping action in the hand grip 12, when the can is to be lifted or preferably tilted. Aside from the heretofore referred to point of location of form ing the recess with respect to the bottom 10, the former'is further provided in axial vertical alinement with the point of pivotal connection of the bail 9 with the can, consequently assuming the can is of a five gallon capacity or more, will permit the contents tobe easily poured through the spout 1]. thereof.
From the foregoing description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, the advantages of construction and the method of operation will be readily apparent to those skilled in the art to which the invention relates, and while I have described the principles of operation of the invention together with the device which I now consider to be the best embodiment thereof, I desire to have it understood that the device shown is merely illustrative and that such changes may be made when desired as are within the scope of the appended claim.
Having thus described the invention, What so bent to provide therein a recess having is claimed as new is a contracted inner endand a flared outer 10 Ametallic oil can comprisingiacylindrical. end, a bail pivotally connected to 'said can body portion provided with a closed bottom at a point in vertical alinement with the 5 Wall stamped .at a point through the horipoint of formation of the hand grip, subzontal center thereof to provide within the stantially as and for the purpose set forth. 7 can bottom a substantially- U-shaped finger In testimony whereof I aflix my signature. 15 grip, the walls forming the finger grip being HERBERT BARNETT.
