Application tiled May ad, 1927. Serial No. 194,291.
This invention relates to a small receptacle for ashes and the like, adapted for demountable attachment to a wall or other vertical surface. More particularly this inventionis intended to provide a convenient and simple form oit ash receiver suitable for automobiles and like places.
The present receiver is advantageous both in respect oi its own construction and in that lo ot its mounting with which it is removably associated, The receiver may be mounted or demounted with facility, and when set in place is maintained by spring' means against jarring or rattling. The receiver is, further more, formed of sheet metal with certain of its edges reinforced in an ornamental manner, all as will appear from the description hereinafter contained.
A suggestive embodiment of this invention is set forth in the accompanying drawing in the manner following: p
Figure 1 is a view in perspective oi the mounting plate attached to a vertical surface Fig. 2 is asimilar view of the receiver per se detached from its mounting;
Fig. 3 is a central vertical section through the receiver and mounting plate showing the one attached to the other;
Fig. l is a horizontal section through the receiver and mounting plate;
Fig. 5 is a top plan view of a receiver having a slightly modified construction; and
Fig. 6 is a sectional detail taken on line 6--6 of Fig. 5.
The present receptacle A is associated with a mounting plate B designed .for attachment to a wall or vertical surface C. This plate may be conveniently secured in place as by means oi screws l passine4 through openings in the plate to engage with the wall, the-plate openings being so formed as to permit the screw heads to lie ilush.
Projecting from opposite ends oi the plate B are wings 8 which are bent around to provide 'lacing channels or guideways. Also extending laterally trom the bottom edge ont' this plate is a tlange 9 forming a stop or ledge. The ash receiver designed tor mounting on this plate comprises a rear wall 10, the oppo 5@ site ends ot which, forming tongues, are receivable within the channels 8 by a sliding motion which proceeds downwardly. This rear wall is also extended laterally along its lower edge to provide a container bottom 11. When in final position within its mounting this hottom is rested against the stop or the ledge 9.
Tn order to prevent rattling or loose movement of the container within its mounting, l provide in the latter a forwardly curving bowed spring 12 which may be formed by U-slitting the plate ld. This spring is, therefore, required to engage with tension at all times with the rear face ot the wall 10. Tn so doing, it prevents rattling, as already suggested, and in addition imposes a friction on the container such as to prevent accidental falling out in case of a sudden hump or jar.
The container itselrn comprises the baclr an d bottom wall 10 and 11 already described, and a front wall 13 which is suitably bent or curved near its ends to provide sides 14 which Join with the rear wall 10. A. spot connection between the sides 14C and the rear wall is provided by lugs 15 which extend from the former through slits 16 in the rear wall. Preferably this wall is inset in the regionol each slit so as to accommodate the lugs Hush, when clinched over as shown best in Fig. fl. By proceeding in this manner ll avoid 'any protrusion upon the rear face of the back wall. The front and side walls along their lower edges are preferably outset as at 17 and then turned under at 18 to provide a horizontal channel i'or the reception of the tree edge of the container bottom 11. This makes for a tight and continuous connection between these parts, and also provides along the lower edge a reinforcement which is ornamental as well. Likewise along the upper edge of the iront and sides ll provide a bead 19 which may talre anydesired i'orm. Preferabiy the upper edge ot the baclr wall 1() is forwardly turned to provide an arrow ilange 20 which harmonizes with the bead 19 in preserving a linished. appearance for the top edge oi the container. y n llt is possible to vary from the construction lust shown in numerous particulars, but without departing trom the essential features of this invention. Tlor example, in Figs. 5
and tl, l have shown a cross bar 21 extending Y from front to rear across the container inthe plane of the `upper edge thereof.. This bar may be termed integral with the liront 13 and have its free end 22 clinched against the rear wall 10, as best shown in Fig. 6.. This alternate construction is merely suggestive olf several `which may be employed.
ing end extensions which are bent to provide inwardly facing channels, and an outwardly extended ledge adjacent its lower edge, there being also a portion of the plate struck out to provide a forwardly bowed spring, and a receiver attachable to the plate having a back wall against which the spring exerts a forward pressure, the opposite' ends of the back wall being vertically and loosely slidable within the channels of the plate, the receiver rear wall being'turned at its lower edge to provide a forwardly extending bottom wall,
and a front wall having a channeled lower edge forming a continuous connection with the bottom Wall and a spot connection with the rear wall, substantially as described.
2. A receiver in which is combined a front, sides, bottom, and back wall in unitary relution, the back wall being extended at its opposite ends past the side walls to provide a pair of tongues, and a mounting for the receiver consisting of a plate having at its ends inwardly facing channels wherein the tongues of the receiver may be freely slid vertically to a final position, stop means carried by the plate for arresting vertical movement of the receiver at a desired point, and spring means projected from the plate intermediate the channeled ends to press against the back wall above the bottom of the receiver whereby to hold the tongues against the forward sides of the channels to normally restrain loose movement within the channels, substantially as described.
