HOSE APPARATUS.

Application filed April 16,

To all whom t may concer/n:

Be it known that I, CARL SNYDER, a citi- Zen of the United States, and resident of Cleveland, county of Cuyahoga, and State of Ohio, liave invented a new and useful `improvement in Hose Apparatus, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to apparatus foi` storing and delivering hose.

The main object of my invention is a simple and efficient apparatus to store and deliver hose and Vadapted to be permanently secured to a structure. Other objects will appear during the description of the apparatus shown in the drawing; y My invention is illustrated, eXemplarily, in the accompanying drawing, as applied to an apparatus for storing and delivering a garden hose, although my invention may also be applied, with suitable modifications, to apparatus for either storing or delivering, or both, of articlesother than the garden hose shown. Y

In the accompanying drawing,'Fig. 1 is a general perspective view of an vapparatus adapted to store and deliver av garden hose and provided with two slidablymounted arcuate doors shown closed in this view; Fig. 2"is a section on a plane indicated by the line 2 in Fig. 1 showing the relations between the elements of Fig. 1 in a horizontal plane;

YFig. 3 is a section on a plane indicated by the line 3 in Figs. 1 and 2 showing the reylations between the elements of Fig. 1 in a 'vertical plane with the doors shown partially open.

Similar reference characters refer to similar parts throughout the views.

The apparatus shown in the drawing is adapted to either store, or deliver, or store and deliver, a garden hose, adapted to be locked, to permit of all or part of the hose 'to be Vreadily taken from the apparatus or stored therein, to be permanently secured to a house'or other structure, and to be locked to prevent theft of the hose.

The apparatus shown in the drawing consists, principally, of the case A, the reel B,

.and the doors C and D. Y

f and 11 and each of these walls is Vprovidedl jwith the circular channel, 12 and 13, respecf tively, on V the outer edge thereof. Y v,channels 'extend vall the way around the walls The case A has the circular end walls 10 These and are, in the `present instance, provided or formed by bending a portion of the outer i923. serial No. 632,512.

edges of the walls to form the double-up inner walls 14 and 15, respectively, and by bending the outer edges of the walls to form the vouter walls or flanges 16 and 17, respec- 60 the channel formation shown. If additional stiffness is required in the case, the walls ma f be corrugated as is well known in the the holes 18 to accommodate screws or other means wherewith the apparatus can be fastened or secured to a house or other permanent or movable structure. The wall 11, in

the present instance the front wall, ma? be curved to present a better appearance o he apparatus as a whole instead of being flat as shown in the drawing.

The walls 10v and 11 are, in the present instance, permanently secured, in proper relation, to each other, by the spacers 19 which may, conveniently, be U shaped as shown and have the ends thereof secured to the, walls by spot-welding or other vmeans; 'thereby forming a substantially rigid case 85 aided in rigidness bythe channel formation or application previously described, economical to manufacture, and not easily tampered with. v

l lt is noted here thatthis spot-welding or other such means must bey performed after therreel B and the doors C and D are in position.

The bearing blocks 20 and 21 are secured to the walls 10 and 11, respectively, by spotn 95 weldingor otherwise, and the shaft 22 is journaled therein. The block 2O is countersunk to accommodate the washer 23 and i the nut 211. v Y

The shaft'22 has the collar 25 abutting. 10o

the wall 11, the reduced and threaded end 26 j for the Ywasher 23 and the nut 24 to form an abutment against 'the block 20, and the flattened end 27. Thecrank 28 is provided with an opening`I in the hub 29 ing lits to the end 27 ofthe shaft 22 so that the crank 28 can readily be 'attached to or tamremovedl from the end '27- to prevent? pering with the reel B. 'f y The reel B is, in the present instance,"jrc`.om 11o posedV of the hub 30`s'ecured1to the shaft 22 "-bywa key or other means and of the' flanges l The wall 10, inthe present instance the i rear wall of the apparatus, is provided with 70 thereof which openapparatus.

rThe door C, arcuate in form, extends over the upper portion of the walls lOand ll and the outer edges there/oi are disposed slidably inthe channels l2 and 13.. The angle iron 35, provided with an opening' to accommo-V date a lock, is setured to the front end of the door C, by spot-welding or otherwise, and forms a handle to operate the door and a means for applying a lock.

The door D, also arcuate in form, extends over the lower portion ot the walls Yand ll and the outer edges thereof are disposed slidably in the channels l2 and 13. The angle iron 36, provided with a hole to accommodate a lock, is secured to the front end of the door D, by spot-welding or otherwise and forms a handle to operate the door and a means for applying a lock.

It is noted that both of the doors can slide, rotatably, all the way around in the channels l2 and 13, and that the rear ends thereof overlap each other a short distance when the doors are'closed, as clearly seen in Fig. l, so that the door D always slides inside o-f the door C when the doors are manipulated and so that the doors may not abut each other and prevent the opening of the case. V Y

Fig. l shows the doors closed and the angle irons or handles abutting each other ready for the application or' a lock thereto. F ig. 3 shows the door D partly rotated in Ythe* channels to provide the opening` 37 through which the hose 34 can be inserted or removed. Since each of the doors C and D extends a little more than half way yaround in the channels, either one of the doors may be rotated and opened a little' less than half wayaround the outside of the case; or both doors may be rotated to any suitable position'to provide an opening in the outside of the' case of any suitable capacity within the scope of the apparatus and' in whatever position such openmg is desiredV forconvenient manipulation ol the hose.

'lVhen the hose 1s wound on the reel and thegdoors closed, `as seen in Fig. l, and

locked, and the crank removed from the end of the shaft, the hose can not be tampered Y with or removed from the apparatus except by partial or total destruction of the case.

Further operations ot this apparatus, such as vthe operation of the reel, are well known ln the art and need no detailed explanation ere, Y This apparatus, having a fixed case, permits the hose to be wound on the reel thereinv` m self to the in Without inconvenience and the hose will also eliminating the usual inconveniences of handling a wet hose.

The apparatus shown and described is economical or manufacture, easy of operation provides a permanent and efficient means for storing and deliveringl a hose, prevents, the theft of a hose, can be installed in any convenient place, always ready l'or the delivery or a hose in any direction or for inserting a hose from any direction,and Yciiininates carrying the hose back and forth and proiongs the life of a hose since it pro tects it from the effects or' the weather and Modifications, other than those pointed out, may be made; therefore, without limitand described,
