DETACHAiBLE s PouT FOR CANS Filed April 27, 1931 Inventor eoiye T Carl Patented July 12, 1932 PATENT} OFFICE GEORGE T. CARR, OF SPOKANE, WASHINGTON nn racnannn' srouzr non cans 1 Application filed April 27, 1931.

This inventionrelates to a detachable spout for cans such as paint cans and the like, the general object of the invention being to provide a simple form of spout-with means for detachably connecting it to the top of the can after the cover part of the can has been removed so that the contents of the can can be readily poured therefrom.

This invention also cpnsists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, to be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing and specifically pointed out in the appended claim.

In describing the invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawing' wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which- Figure 1 is an elevation of part of the tank showing the spout applied thereto.

Figure 2 is a similar view but showing parts in section.

. Figure 3 is a perspective view of the spout. As shown in these views,'the spout 1 is of substantially semi-circular shape in cross section and tapers from its inner edge to its outer edge as shown so that the spout is of greater length at its center and tapers toward its ends. The large or inlet end of the spout is turned outwardly to provide a flange 2 for fitting in the groove 3 formed in the can top so that the spout can be easily and quickly attached to the can after the cover part thereof has been removed, the spout can bejust as easily removed from the can.

It will thus be seen that I provide a simple form of spout for detachably engaging a part of the can top so that the contents of the can, can be readily poured therefrom by means of the spout.

As disclosed by the drawing, this invention is intended for use on friction top cans provided with the usual inwardly extending annulus 4 having the upstanding flange 5 con- Serial No. 533,338.

parts, provided that such changes fall within v a the scope of the appended claim.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new is:

In combination with a friction top can having an inwardly extending annulus connected with its upper end and said annulus having an upturned flange at its inner edge provided with an inwardly turned down flange in its top part forming an annular groove opening downwardly, a spout of substantially semi-circular form and having an upturned flange at its inlet end and on the convex face thereof forming a groove between itself and the said convex face for receiving a part of the last-mentioned flange of the can with the flange on the spout fitting in the groove of the can with the parts frictionally engaging each other to removably connect the spout with the .top of the can.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.


nected with its inneredge and the upper edge of said flange 3.being bent over inwardly to form the groove 3 in which the can top frictionally fits.

It is thought from the foregoing descrip-
