This invention relates to an attachment for furniture of the upholstered type, but more particularly to a valve controlled insecticide container designed primarily as a vermin repelling means for use in connection with upholstered furniture, but it is to be understood that a valve controlled insecticide container, in accordance with this invention may be employed for any purposes for which it is found applicable, and the primary object of the 1nvention is to provide means, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, whereby an insecticide or vermin repellent may be housed within the article of furniture in such a way as to be obsoured from view and not interfere with any of the operative parts of the furniture, and yet will permit of fumes or gases passing therefrom through the article of furniture so as to repel vermin to prevent their lodging upon or gaining access to the interior of the article.

A further object of the invention is to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, a valve controlled insecticide container designed primarily for use in connection with upholstered furniture and constructed and arranged to allow an intake of air, due to the expansion of the upholstering, when a person sitting thereon rises and for shutting off the intake of air on the contraction of the upholstering due to any one sitting on same, and by this arrangement the fumes or generated gases on the inside are retained and compressed thereby forcing them into the upholstering on the inside and to the innermost corners, allowing none of the fumes or gases to escape to the outside. Further the providing of the container with a valve, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, will eliminate any odor in the room from the insecticide.

A further object of the invention is to provide, in a manner as hereinafter setforth, an insecticide container constructed and arranged whereby air currents are caused to pass therethrough on the reaction of the seat of a chair or other resiliently supported part of an article of furniture thereby carrying the emanations from the insecticide substance into contact with the upholstering material on such reaction, and further whereby said container is constructed to prevent the intake of air on the compression of the seat of a chair or other resiliently supported part of an article of furniture.

A further object of the invention is to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, an

insecticide container for the purpose referred to constructed and arranged to permit of conveniently positioning the'insecticide therein when desired.

A further object of the invention is to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, an insecticide container for the purpose referred to which can be positioned within an article of furniture at the desired point, after such article of furniture has been built or completed, and further to provide a form of insecticide container which can be placed at any desired point within the article of furniture and with such article of furniture being a chair, couch, large davenport, or any other form of upholstering, such as a bed box spring, large hotel or club divans and lounges, and further whereby the container is of such size as to enable one or more thereof to be positioned within the article of furniture and concealed after being positioned.-

Further objects of the invention are to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, a

valve controlled. insecticide container for the purpose referred to which is simple in its construction and arrangement, strong, durable, compact, thoroughly efficient in its use, con veniently installed and removed when desired,

readily assembled, and comparativelyinex pensive to manufacture.

'With the foregoing and other objects in view, the invention consistsof the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts as hereinafter more specifically described, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein is shown an embodiment of the invention, but it is to be understood that changes, variations and modifications can be resorted to which fall within the scope of the claims hereunto appended.

In the drawings wherein like reference characters denote corresponding parts throughout the several views;

Figure 1 is a sectional elevation of an up holstered chair showing the adaptation therewith of a valve controlled insecticide contain er in accordance with this invention.

Figure 2 is a vertical sectional View of the container. 1

Figure 3 is a vertical sectional view taken at ri ht angles to Figure 2.

igure a is a perspective view of the body of the container.

Figure 5 is a perspective view of the valve controlled stopper unit for the body of the container.

The disinfectant. container, may be installed in any form of upholstered furniture, but by way of example is illustrated as applied to the rear bar of the framework of a conventional arm chair of the-upholstered type. Referring to the drawings the chair is generally indicated at 1 andinclu'des a' seat frame 2, a back 3, apair ofarins 4, only one of which is shown, an upholstered seat portionf), supportin springs 6, for the seat portion 5, legs 7 a xible closure 8 secured to the. bottom of the seat frame 2- and provided with an opening 9 for thepassa-ge of the disinfectant or insecticide container and springs 10 arranged in the back 3. The rear bar of the scat. frame 2 is indicated at 1.1 and is adapted to. have the container secured thereto and positioned against the forward face thereof. The container can be of any suitable form andby way of example shown of rectangular, contour.

The container comprisesan ()PQII'bOtiTOD I rectangular body. portion'12 formed of a top 13, a front. wall 14,; a rearwall 15, and pair of. side walls 16, 17. The top 13. and each Of: the wallsofthe body portion 12-arc perforated throughout as indicatedat 18 whereby a foraminous open bottom body pol v tion isprovided. formed of sheet metal of the desired gauge and the walls 14,16 and 1"? thereofha-ve their lower. ends provided with outwardly extending right angularly disposed'flanges 19, 20

and21 respectively. The wall at its bot. tom is formed witha non-perforated part 22 which is bent upwardly. to ahutthe outer face of 'saidwalllo. The part 22 terminates at its. upper end ina-right a ularly. disposed flange 23 provided with ap urarlit-y of'openings. 24 for the passage ofv holdfast devices. The flange 23 is, positioned above the plane of the. flanges, 19, and 21.

Arrangod'within the open lower end ofthe body. port-ion 12 is a valve controlled stopper unit consisting ofa rectangular body portion 25, formed of a top-26, abottom27,,a front wall 2.8, and a rear Vila-1129. The body portion 25 open at each-end. Thetop 2,6, bottom 27and Walls 28, 29 of the body portion 25' are, perforated throughoutwhereby a foraniinous body portion is provided. Arranged within the body portion 25 is ahapvalve 30 which has oneend thereof'secured, by the holdfast devices 31 to one end ofthe bottom 27; The norinalpos'iti-on of thevalve 30 is as indicated in dotted lines in Figure 2 under such conditions the bottom 27 is open. When i the furniture is contracted, due to one seating thereon, the valve 30 is-shifted to full line position as shown inFi'glu-e 2, under such conditions. closing the bottom 27 of the body 25. hen the article of furniture is. expanded. the expanding action thereof elevates the valve 30 to the dotted line position shown in Figure 2 and permitting ofan intake of air The body portion 12 to the stopper element A and into the body portion 12. The stopper element is detachably secured to the body portion 12, by re silient latches which frictionally engage with-the walls 16, 17' of the body portion 12.
