UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE JOHN S. JENNINGS, OF BROOKLYN, N EW YORK.
IMPROVEMENT IN sLoP-PAlLs.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 133,370. dated November 26,1872.
To all whom it may concern:
' Be it known that I, JOHN S. JENNINGS, of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Slop-Pails, of which the following is a specification:
My invention consists of a detachable seat for slop-pails, also a cover therefor, detachably connected with it, the seat beingdetachably connected to facilitate the cleaning of the pails, which can bedone much more readily and thoroughly when the seat is detached than when not so, as they have been heretoi' fore made.
Figure l is a transverse sectional elevation of part of a pail with a detachable seat, and with a detachable cover therefor, with different modes of fastening said cover, the section being taken on the line of Fig. 2. Fig. 2 is aplan view; and Fig. 3 is a partial section, showing another mode of fastening said cover to the seat.
A represents the pail or bucket of any kind. B is the seat, and O is the cover therefor. The seat and cover may be made of metal, clay (baked,) wood, or any other suitable material. The seat has an annular recess, D, in the periphery, by which it is reduced' in size so as to lit down in the top of the pail or bucket snugly till the fiangcE above rests on the top, and the cover, being similarly recessed, fits in like manner down in the large hole in the seat; but it is not necessary that it should t quite so snugly as the seat fits in the pail, for it is to be removed andy applied more frequently, and it is to be fastened in said seat in any ap- Aproved way, say by the lugs F, permanently attached to the under side, so as to project under the inner ed ge of the seat when introduced i below the bottom through the notches G, and turned under said edges away from said notches; or buttonsu H, with thumb-bits I for turning them, may be used; or theymay be screwed together by screws K passing through the flanges of the cover and screwing into the top of the seat. Any suitable way of fastening the cover to the seat may be used.
By having the seat detachable the cleaning of the pail is made very much easier, and the Work can be done far better, and the pouring lof the contents of the pail out is greatly facil-
