NEDLE LOCKING DEVICE FOR SYRIGES Filed Feb. 8. 1929 @QQ-l III lmlunhnyllml Patented May 6, 193()k i' i' UNI-TED' STATES Y* Application learebruary s, l1929. senat No. 338,534.

The present invention relates to syringes, Y and particularly to means for locking a needle to syringes. 'l

Y It has been found inmedical practice that often the needle base of syringes and hypodermics accidentally becomes dislodged, and either falls olf or permits the escape of the Y fluid or the entrance of Vair into the Huid. The` consequences resulting are notonly annoying, but, in a to the patient. Y

The object of the invention is toprovide van air-tight and Huid-tight coupling.y K

' Another object lof the invention -is to provide a coupling which is simple in operation, and can be easilyand quickly manipulated.V

Another object of the invention is to pro- V vide a device which can be cheaply manufactured, and is not prohibitive in price; Y Still 'another object ,of the invention is to provide means whereby a positive connection may be obtained, where the failure of such might have extremely harmful results.

The invention can be applied to a number of surgical and clinical instruments 'where aV secure joint is necessary and required, for example, the cystoscope and urethroscope, where the materialis of such consistency as to permit the making of grooves therein. In the drawings Figurel is a side view ofthe in cross section. Y

Y At the needle end of the barrel is a'shoulder 7 from'which extends the nipple 8, the latter preferably, though not necessarily, being slightly tapered. A passageway 9 runs from the interior-of the barrel through the said nipple.

lormecl'atthe innermost end of the nipple mentll; "It will'be noted that the side l2 of the abutment, adjacent the groove, is slightly `undercut and 'forms an acute angle. Sglotsfil are l'provided on'opposite nsides of thelnippleand extend through` the abutment into the groove.' f Y Y The needle baselt, which Vis Ausuallyformed of metal,"but may be `of other suitable material, contains a socket l'shaped exactly to fit the nipple 8.*v v A passagewayl runs from within thesocket to the needle and connects with the passageway Y9 in the nipple. Integrallypor otherwise attached to the needle baseareV armsjl'jhoolied at their ends, asV

f.' The said arms will be in a position to enf gage the groove when the.v tapered nipple is substantially against thefbottom of the socket in the needlebase.- l/Vhen in this position,

soY

the 'desired air-tight and yfluid-tight joint is 5 made, andV by turning` the arms kinto the groove, thepositive lockingvmeans is provided.

QTwo indentations 19 areffor-med on they opposite `sides of the needlebase Vto provide means 'forl grasping'` with the thumb and fingers. ,p

A modified form of the invention is shown in Figure'f..` The groovevl'O extends only around part of the circumference of the VI'nipple,and in this way a -stop is formed.

fTo Aassemble the'devi'ce theneedle base` is grasped at the indentations and tted over the nipple, the arms are slipped along the nipple and through the slots in the abutment, and a quarter turn of the needle base is made; In this Way the needleb'ase is positively secured to the barrel Without fear ofthe possibilityeither oibecoining entirely dislodged,

or loose, whereby leakage mightoccur.

Such structuralchanges, vvhich call merely for mechanical skill, are, ofcourse, to be considered as within the rangeof my invention.l
