JACKET FOR LIQUID DISPENSING RECEPTACLES Filed Feb. 6, 1933 Znuentor HELEN MMTI'ERS Gttorneg Patented Mar. 13, 1934 PATENT OFFICE JACKET FOR LIQUID DISPENSING RECEPTACLES Helen M. Matters, Omaha, Nebr.
Application February 6,
This invention relates to jackets for liquid dispensing receptacles, and is shown and decribed in connection with cans of evaporated or condensed milk.
These cans containing the milk generally bear printed labels of various colors and when placed upon the table for family use present an objectionable appearance suggestive of commercialism and out of harmony with the surroundings. The object of the invention therefore is to provide a jacket which will conceal the can, will maintain it in a clean, sanitary condition during use, and will present an ornamental and attractive appearance.
It is an object of the invention to provide jackets for the purpose mentioned which may be produced at such a limited expense that they may be awarded as premiums or used for advertising purposes to increase sales or in introduczo ing new brands of the product.
With the foregoing objects in view and others outlined hereinafter the invention presents a new and useful construction, combination and arrangement of parts as described herein and claimed, and as illustrated in the drawing, it being understood that changes may be made in form, size, proportions and minor details, said changes being within the scope of the invention as claimed.
In the drawing, Fig. l is a plan view of the jacket before it has been applied to the receptacle. Fig. 2 is a side view of the jacket. Fig. 3 is a plan view of the completed jacket and a receptacle therein.
Referring now to the drawing for a more particular description, the invention is shown and described in connection with a can 4 similar to or identical with cans generally used commercially in shipments and sale of condensed milk. However, it is the purpose of the invention to provide a jacket for other kinds of receptacles.
The invention consists, in part, of a thin elongated fiexible sheet shown in Fig. l of the drawing and indicated at 5 incised at its ends to provide wings or handle-members 6 bearing adhesive material m on one side, said sheet being also incised to provide a projection, wing or spout-member '7 extending from one of its edges midway between said end-portions 6.
This sheet may consist of any suitable material adapted to be bent to a cylindrical form, to provide an upright wall or body 8 for the jacket shown in Figs. 2 and 3 of the drawing.
The flexible sheet 5 may have any suitable length, depending upon the diameter of the can 1933, Serial No. 655,459
or receptacle which it may surround, and in operation, for use as a jacket for a can of milk, after the discharge port 9 and vent port 10 have been formed in the top of the can as shown in Fig. 3, the flexible strip or sheet 5 may be applied to the can as shown in the drawing.
It will be understood that the wing or extension 7, when the sheet is applied to the can, will operate as a spout 11 best shown in Fig. 2, and that the end-portions 6 when bent at approxi- V mately right-angles to the sheet at their junction with said sheet and connected with each other will operate as a handle 12 for the jacket.
The sheet or strip 5 may have any suitable width depending upon the size of the can, andv preferably, the proportions are such that the cylindrical wall of the holder will extend slightly above the top of the can, and when placed upon a table the can will be practically concealed from view.
It will be noted that when the operator is applying the jacket to the can the wall 8 of said jacket may be conveniently and snugly fitted thereon, the adhesive end-portions 6 being placed in engagement and pressed toward each other to form the handle 12.
During the operation of pouring, the can may be swung in an arc exceeding 90 degrees and the spout 11 which is disposed in a plane parallel with the wall of the can will perform all a5 of the functions required of a spout in conducting the contents of the can, and will permit drainage from the spout to the port 9 when placed in normal position, and as described, there will not be appreciable leakage or downward passage of the contents below the spout between the can and wall 8 of the jacket.
I While the wing '7 is shown in the drawing to have a sharp or pointed terminal, this particular form is not important and the terminal for the spout may have any suitable curvature.
It will be seen that, in the use of the device, the can may be inserted through the open bottom or top of the jacket after the holders are completely formed and ready for use. If the jackets are manufactured as a product for future use, care should be exercised so that, when applied to the cans, they will not fit loosely since, for correct operation, the wall 8 below the spout should have a slight pressure against the wall of the can.
It will be appreciated that the jackets, as described, may be constructed of paper sheets cut approximately to the :form shown in Fig. 1 of the drawing, and if manufactured, delivered and 110 used in the flat form first mentioned, production would be very inexpensive, the cost in fact, being so limited that the device could be donated to the user as an advertising feature.
By referring to Fig. 1 of the drawing it will be seen that the adhesive parts for the end-portions 6 of the sheet or strip 5 have adhesive patches or extensions as, and during the operation of pressing the wings 6 toward each other to form the handle 12, the adhesive portions :1: will adhere to the wall of the can to prevent any sliding movement of the can relative to the jacket. However, when the jacket contains small cans the use of the patches or extensions :1: will not be necessary.
I claim as my invention,-
1. In a jacket for the upright cylindrical wall of a liquid dispensing receptacle having a discharge port in its top, a flexible strip having adhesive end-portions and a convergent projection at its edge equi-distant from said adhesive endportions, said strip being adapted to be applied to said cylindrical wall with its adhesive endportions bent radially therefrom and adhesively connected to form a handle at the side of said receptacle, said projection extending above the top of the receptacle to provide a spout adjacent to said discharge port parallel with the longitudinal axis of the receptacle in alignment with a part of said flexible strip.
2. In a jacket for the upright cylindrical wall of a dispensing receptacle having a discharge port in its top, a flexible strip provided with adhesive ends and adhesive body portions and a projection on its longitudinal edge, said strip being adapted to be applied adhesively to the cylindrical wall with the adhesive ends bent raially of the receptacle to provide a handle therefor, the projection of said strip being disposed above the top of the receptacle adjacent to said discharge port in alignment with a part of said flexible strip to provide a spout for said receptacle.
