HOLDER FOB STICK MATERIAL.
' v Application filed March 5 The invention relates in general to containers for carrying materials and more particularly to a device for dispensing stick material such as a lipstick. 7
According to the invention a container is provided comprising a holder tube which may be of non-circular cross section and in which may be telescopically mounted acarrier tube which seats the contained material, which may be a lipstick. A cover member may be provided disposed on the outside of the holder tube, and having a projecting arm which may extend around the lower open end of the holder tube into pivot engagement with the carrier member. The cover member may also have a cap for acting as a closure for the upper open end of the holder tube.
An advantage of this construction is that the holder may be made of any desired cross section. The mechanism for feeding the contained material 'does not depend upon the particular cross section. The construction is such that the contained materialmay be easily advanced for use and may be easily re turned to its closed position b the cover member. The construction is suc that in operating the device it is impossible, in opening or closing to touch the contained material with the fingers of the hand grasping the cover member, because the cover member is first swung. out of line with the contained material before the contained material is advanced by the cover member.
A further advantage is that, when the container is closed, there is no chance for the contained material to leak out and soil the ocket or bag ofthe user, and no chance of irt or dust getting into the container to contaminate the contained material. The construction of the container is simple and rugged, and therefore cannot be easily broken or get out' of order. Furthermore, the construction lends a neat and pleasing appearance to the container. 7
Various other features and advantages of the invention will be apparent from the following particular description and from an inspection of the accompanying drawings. The invention also consists in certain new and original features of construction and combinations of parts hereinafter set forth and claimed.
Althou h the novel features which are believe-d to characteristic of this invention will be particularly pointed out in the claims open position with the contained material 1927. Serial No. 173,004.

er tu In the following description and in the claims parts will be identified by specific names for convenience, but they are intended be as generic intheir application to simllar parts as the art will permit.
Like reference characters denote like parts in the several figures of the drawings.
Referring to the drawing, the container is shown, for purposes of illustration, as holdmg a lipstick. It will be obvious the container may be used for holding other materials, such as combs, shaving brushes, etc. 7 The container com rises a holder tube 1 open at its upper en and having the metal thereof turned inwardly to provide a small annular inturned flange 2 at its lower end.' Telescopically mounted within the holder tube is a carrier tube 3 shown best in Fig. 10.
The carrier tube has an open upper end in which a lipstick 4 may be disposed. The bottom of the carrier tube near'one side, is provided with an indented or depressed groove 5 forming a seat for a hinge knuckle. The. bottom is also provided with a plurality of holes 6 for the the groove.
The cover member 7 may comprise a cap 8 Figll is a bottom perspective of the holdpintle wire at the bottom of which is slightly convex, the cap being provided with a downwardly extending integral flange 9 which extends slightly more than half way around the holder tube 1 when the container is in closed position, as shown best in Fig. 6, to act as a clip to hold the cover member in closed position. Projecting downwardly and integral with the flange 9 1s a tapering arm 10 which tapers down to a transverse foot 11 ending in a hinge knuckle 12. When the container is in closed position the foot 11 overlies the lower end of the holder tube, as shown in Fig. 1. The hinge knuckle 12 is disposed in the hinge groove 5,
and a pintle wire 13 is threaded through the hinge knuckle and through the openings 6 and is bent over on the inside of the carrier tube, this construction firmly hinging the cover member to the carrier tube.
When it is desired to use the lipstick, the cover member 7 is first moved laterally about its hinge until the arm 10 occupies a pos tion substantially 180 degrees from the position shown in Fig. 1. It will then be seen that by pushing the arm 10 upwardly the stick material may be advanced any desired d1stance, such as to the position shown in Fig. 4, in which position the lipstick may be used. As the stick material is used up, it is necessary to push the carrier tube 3 up further, and its upper position is limited by the engagement of the tapered arm 10 witl1.the inturne'd flange 2, as shown in Fig. 5.
When it is desired to close the container, the opening movements are reversed, the carrier tube 3 being pulled to its lowermost position and the cover 7 then swung upwardly 180 degrees to close the container.
Thus it will be seen that, in operating the container, it is impossible for the fingers of the hand grasping the cover member to touch, and thereby mutilate, the stick material. The cover member is first moved out of the path of the stick material, and when the stick material is advanced there is nothing in its way which it may hit. The container may be of any desired cross section, and the combination operating and closure construction is independent of the shape of the cross section of the container. The operation of the container is accomplished merely by swinging and longitudinal movement of the parts.
While certain novel features of the invention have been shown and described and are polnted out in the annexed claims, it will be understood that various omissions, vsubstitutions and changesin the forms and details of the device illustrated and in its operation may be made by those skilled in the art without departing from the spirit of the invention.
What is claimedis:
1. A container comprising a holder tube open at both ends and having at its lower end a small inturned flange, a carrier tube telescoping within said holder tube and having a depressed groove in its bottom with holes at the ends of said groove, a cover member having a cap with a depending flange extending more than half-way around said holder tube, an arm integral with said flange and disposed outside said holder tube, said arm having its lower end bent to form a transverse foot disposed across the lower open end of said holder tube, said foot ending in a hinge knuckle, said knuckle resting in said groove, a pintle wire in said knuckle and in said holes, said arm increasing in width towards its cap end to engage said inturned flange to limit the upward movement of said carrier tube.
2. A container comprising a holder tube,
a carrier tube telescoping within said holder tube andhaving a depressed groove in its bottom with" holes in said groove, a cover member having a cap and an arm disposed outside said holder tube, said arm having at its lower end a hinge knuckle disposed across the lower open end of said holder tube, said knuckle resting in said groove, and a pintle wire disposed in saidknuckle and in said holes.
3. A container comprising a holder tube having an open lower end, a carrier member telescoping within said holder tube, a cover member having a cap with a continuous depending flange extending just a little more than half-way around said holder tube, an arm secured to said cap and disposed outside said holder tube, and pivot means connecting said arm and said carrier member at the lower open end of said holder tube, whereby said depending flange acts as a resilient catch to hold the container closed.
4. A container comprising a holder tube having an opening in its lower end, a carrier member telescoping within said holder tube, a cover member having a cap and an arm disposed outside said holder tube, pivot means connecting said arm and said carrier memher at the lower end of said holder tube, said arm increasing in width toward its cap and passing into said holder tube to engage said lower end to limit the upward movement of said carrier member.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
