Applicationfiledlt'ovcmber 14;19251 serial no. eaieoi invention relates to spigots, and has for its prime object to provide an improved 1 externally thereof when not in usefand also capableof being 'conveniently projected into positioiiforuse. I I e I U The devicelis complete in itself and is "capab leibfJbeingffitted'to a barrel or thelike imp le. and convenient manner, require. With a I the barrel to receive'the bushing member of the .sp1got,which bushingmembers telescopi cally carries the discharge tube member: of pie t Th t pre t. ,only viz, a bushing to bemounted in head or the side or'a. barrel or other liquid container, .anlopen ended discharge tube,
constitut ng a spigot member, telescopicalb carried by th bushing, and acombined cap andvalve plug, carried by the outer end of the spigot member for opening and closing the;discharg e port therein, the capport-ion also operating to rigidlysecure the spigot; member to the bushing in the collapsed conditionbf the device and to form a smooth finish for the outer end of the device in its collapsed condition, r p v A With these and other objects in view, the present invention consists in; the combination and; arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more 'fully described, shown in the-accompanying drawings, and particularlyzpointe'd out inathe appended claims, it or course beingunderstood that changes in tails maybe made," within the. scope of the claims," withoutdeparting from the spirit ors'sacrificin'g any "of the advantages of the invention; s 1 In;the drawings:

The-@device of'the present invention includes three main'wparts, abushing 1, an open ended rdischarge tube 2 constituting the a barrel or other'liquid conv Q the provision of "an opening in device includes three members; the
spigot member, and the valve plug 3' mountedin the outer end of the "spigot'2 for" controlling the dischargeport l in one'side of thespigot.
The bashing-1 is providedwith' animate mediate 'externally enlarged' portion 5, pref erably polygonal to constituting -a wrenefh' head for screwing ithe externally screw threaded body portion" 6 into an "opening provided in a: wall'ofthe barrel "7 or other liquid containerl" The" inner endlportioii' oitf the bushing is counterbored for the purpose of providing an internal annular shoulderi 8,"and 'th'e counterbjored portion fis inter;
nally screw threaded as clearlyindicated thejdrawingsk The outer end portion of the bushing is slightly larger in external fdiarn ete'r than theinnerend portion of'the bu sh ing and is externally, screw threadedif v The tubular pigot member 2 is openat opposite 7 ends and is internally screw' threaded,.as at9, such screw threads extn'ldj ing from the outer end ofthespigot member nw d y s l d t neie "bey d the jdi ,-g charge port i fora purposejas will herein? after be describedj The external "diameter of'the spigot member 2 s slightlyless"tl anl the inte'riial diameterot the bushing in order, to permit of the convenient endwise tel'sfc'op i ing of the spigot members through the bu ing' which carries and 's upports the spi 0t; member. At the inner end of the, spigot, member there is an' external annularleri'}; largeinentv 10 which is externally screw; threaded and is of a size to fit the internallv; screw threaded, inner portion of the bushing 6, as clearly shown in Figurel of the drawfldhelshouldfilf" 8 pr; the. bushing co'n-i stitutes a stop ffor engagement by the inner end of the head l2fto l i'mit' the outward movement of the spigot throughg the bushing The outer endofthescrew plugB is providedjwith a hollow cap l l which is inter nally screw threaded as shown, and con stitutesa heador handle for convenience in manipulating the valveplug 3. In the collapeed condition of the; device, a shown-in Figure 2 of the'drawings-,it will'befseen that the capill isscrewedlupon the [externally screw'threaded outerpgrtion of the During transportation, storage," and barrel, and the valve plug 3 has been screwed down so that the plug closes the dis charge port t and the cap ll is screwed down upon the externally screw threaded outer end of the bushing,whereby the spigot member ,2 is rigidly supported upon the bushing through the .plug valve 3 and the cap 11, while the cap 11 entirely closes the outer end of the bushing and the spigot mem- I .ber and forms a neat covering for the outer endof the device. 7 i
In using thedevice the cap ll'is-first unscrewed fromthe bushing, and by reason of, the fact-that the length of the screw threadedengagement between the cap 11 and the bushing l is less than the length of the screw threaded engagement between the valve plugv Sand the spigot member 2" at the innersideof the outlet port 4, the valve plug -3 will still close the outlet port 4, whereby the -spigoti2 may be pulled. outwardly until the screw threaded head 10 engages the internally screw threaded inner end of the bushing, whereupon the spigot member is rotated so as to screw the head 10 into the bushing until stopped by engagement with the annular shoulderS, in which position the spigot member 2 will be projected a suitable distance beyond the barrel and will be rigidly supported in place by its screw threaded connection with the inner end of the bushmg. Duringthese various manipulations,
the'outlet port 4 has been maintained closed by the valve plug 3, which latter maysubsequently'be backed off to open the outlet port ifor'the discharge of the liquid contents of the container. The v'alveplug 3 may be manipulated toopen and close the discharge Port 4 without affecting the other parts of the device. l i
-From theforegoing description, it will be readilyunderstood that the device of the present invention includes 3 parts only, viz,
the bushing 1, the spigot member 2 and the valve plug 3, which parts may beivery conveniently assembled and constitute a com-' plete device which may be conveniently fitted to a barrel or other container merely by screwing the bushing into an opening pro vided in a wall of the barrel or container.
' What is claimed is:
I. A spigotofthe class described, com prising an attaching bushing, a tubular spigot member telescopically carried by the bushing and having a lateral discharge port and a valvemember carried by the outer end of the discharge tube and controlling the discharge port, thedischarge port being disposed to lie within and closed by a wall of spigot member and constitutinga closure" for the outlet port, the outer endof the valve plug having a handle portion plrovided with screw threads for fitting the screw threaded outer end portion of the bushing at the inner limit of movement of the spigot member, the length of the screw threaded engagement be tween the handle and the bushing being less than the length of the screw'threaded en- 'gage'ment between the valve plug and the spigot member port. v I i i 3.
