OF CALIFORNIA SANITARY COVERED RECEPTAGL-E Application filed August 29, 1931. =Seria1'No. 560323.

This invention relates to a covered recep-= tacle, and while features of the invention may be applied for securing acover to a re-- The general object of the invention is toz .3-1)l0ClHC6 a receptacle having a detachable cover which canbe readily applied. toithe receptacle so as to become latched-thereto but which, when desired, can 'be readily disengaged from the receptacle.

, Afurther object of the invention isto provide a covered receptacle including afla-nged cover having a body section and to provide: the body section and the receptacle with 1nter-.

locking means to enable the cover section to 30 be latched to the receptacle by sliding the same into place on the upper edge of the wall of the receptacle.

Further objects ofthe' invention will appear hereinafter.

5 The invention consists in the novel-parts and combinations oft-parts to be described hereinafter, all of which contribute to'produce an eflicient sanitary covered receptacle.

A preferred embodiment of the inventionis described in the following specification,

while the broad scope of the invention-is pointed out in the appended claims.

In the drawing:

. Figure 1 is a plan of a coveredreceptacle' embodying my invention, a portion of the cover being broken away so as to show the wall of the receptacle in cross section, and likewise a portion of the flange of thebody section of the cover.

to show a portion of the wall of the receptacle in cross section together with a portion of the cover.

Figure 2 is a side elevation ofthe recep-- tacle and cover partially broken away so as =ries a movable cover section 5. Figure 31s a vertical section through the' receptacle and-cover taken about on the line 3-3zof Figure l 'with the' lower part of the receptacle broken away.

Figure 4 1s a viewshowing in detail and upon an enlarged. scale the latching means on the side wall of the receptacle. The view is a horizontal section.

Figure 5 is a side elevation of a portion of the flange of thebody section of the cover illustrating details of the construction.

Figure. 6 is a side :elevation showing a portion of a receptacle and illustrating .an-

other embodimentof the inventiomcertain parts being brokenfaway;.and'showing the body section'of the cover. being put in place.

In practicing the invention, I prefer to employ a receptacle'of glass and make a cover of metal, preferably:sheetmetal. The cover .is .preferably constructed in two pieces,

namely, a body section and amovable lid or cover section attached to the body section of the cover. The body section of the cover is constructed with a marginal flange and is adapted to be latched in place onthe upper edge of the wall of the receptacle to prevent it from being moved :laterally off the receptacle. The wall of the receptacle and the flange of the body section'are providedwith interlocking means to latch'the body section of the cover in place.

The interlocking means carried by the body section ofthe cover is preferably resilient and cooperates with the receptacle Wall sothat'when desired the cover can readily be slid off of the 'receptacle.

Referring more particularly tolthe parts, 1 indicates a receptacle preferably made of glass or other material which can readily be sterilized by heat or other means, and this receptacle ispreferably of box form comprising side walls 2 and'end walls such as the end wall 3 (see Figure '1). The cover includes a body section 4 which preferably car- The body section tis provided with a marginal flange 6 in-" eluding side extensions 7 which extend parallel with the direction of sliding the body section into place as indicated by the arrow In Figure 1, and the flange also includes an end extension or end flange 8.

On the side flanges 7 I provide locking means preferably in the form of dogs which project inwardly and are received in sockets 9 formed in the outer face of the walls 2 near their upper edge, and these dogs are preferably in the form of pins 10 having rounded heads disposed on the inside of the flange.

I prefer to provide resilient means for urging these dogs or pins inwardly so as to snap them into the sockets 9 after the body section .4 has been slid into place. For this purpose I provide either a spring corresponding to each pin or a double spring 11 which is in the form of a bar secured by a rivet 12 to the middle portion of the end flange 8, and this spring has side arms 13 which extend along the inner sides of the side flanges 7 and engage under the heads of the pins 10 so as to urge them inwardly. In order to increase the spring efl'ect, these side arms 13 of the spring may each be provided with a bend or small spring how 14 (see Figure 1).

In order to guide the heads of the pins 10 into the sockets 9, I prefer to provide each side wall near its upper edge with a guide groove 15. The sockets 9 are slightly deeper than the grooves 15 so as to form a rudimentary shoulder 16 to enable the sockets to yieldingly retain the pins.

The end wall 3 of the receptacle and the end flange 8 of the body section are also preferably provided with interlocking means to prevent this edge of the body section 4 from being raised from the adjacent end wall 3. For this purpose I provide a socket 17 in the outer face of the end wall that receives the inner head of the pin or rivet 12.

I prefer to utilize the pins 10 as pivots for attaching the movable cover section 5. For this purpose, the cover section is provided with a flange 18 which is formed with integral extensions or ears 19 which have perforations to receive the pins. 2

The side flanges 7 are formed with open-.

ings 18 into which the pins pass and these openings are preferably elongated in a horizontal direction. This is important because it prevents any strains being developed in the glass which might break the same when the article is subjected to changes in temperature. The end of each flange 18 of the cover section 5 is provided with an opening or eye 20 which fits closely to the side of the pin 10 so as to operate as an eflicient hinge joint.

In. Figure 6 I illustrate another embodiment of the invention in which the body section 21 of the cover may be applied by snapping it down into place instead of sliding it into place as in the other embodiment of the invention already described. In this embodiment shown in Figure 6, the construction of the cover section 21 is the same as before, but instead of having a guide groove at each side of the receptacle 22, I provide a socket 23 similar to the socket 17 (see Figure 1) to receive a projection or pin 24 similar to the rivet 12. Each side of the receptacle is provided with a socket 25 extending down from the upper edge 26 of the wall and provided with a rounded horizontal shoulder 27. The cover should be applied as indicated in Figure 6 so that the pin 24 engages the socket 23, and then the cover section is swung downwardly so that the heads of the pins 28 will pass into the sockets 25.

In this way, they snap under'the shoulders 27 through the agency of their springs 29 which correspond to the springs 13.

When it is desired to sterilize the cover, it may be removed from the receptacle and then the two sections disengaged by shoving the pins 10 or 28 outwardly.

It is understood that the embodiment of the invention described herein is only one of the many embodiments this invention may take, and I do not wish to be limited in the practice of the invention, nor in the claims, to the particular embodiment set forth.
