Es PATENT OFFICE \QLIP s'riok HOLDER Babbitt, Louisville, Ky., assignor to J. v.

' Bilcher Mfg. .00., Inc., Louisville, Ky 'a' cor- V poration of Kentucky ApplicationAugustlifzi 1933, Serial No. stasis i 15 Claims. (oi. 206-56) An object of .thei inventicn is to produce a lip stick holder having a simple and eiiicient form of means for projecting and retracting the lip stick in relation to thecontainer casing as a '5; consequence of. moving .a closure member or the casingjby the walls thereof.

lie against the flat outer face. of the side walls of.

cover awayzfrom, or :back tozits position over the open endof thelcasing. it I Other objects will beclearf rom the accompanyingspecification and claims.

v.Inthedrawing i Figure 1 is a side elevation of the lipstick holderrin closed condition, but showingin dotted lines the position of the cover member and. its supporting? armswhenlthe cover is moved away a from its seat and the lipstick is projected.

Fig. 2'is a centrallongitudinal sectional view.

l Fig. 3 is a sectional view in part substantially on line 33.of.Fig. 2.

Fig. .4 is a transverse sectional view. Fig.5isadetailview. x

i The casing 5 is formedfrom thin sheet; metal drawn into oblong form as shown in the sectional'view'Fig. 4; A carrier 'Tis guidedwithin This carrier is. i of cup shape andis formedof sheet: metal. It is operatedby a link 8 pivotally connected with the bottom of said cup shaped carrier at 9, the lower. endof the link being pivotally connected at 10 to. a-crank arm'll, which is .in the form of-a plate reaching from side to side of. the casing, and

connected at its edges to pintles or journals .12: formed bystriking .up cup'shaped protuberances from the sheet metal. arms 13, which normally the casing. Theseharms are connectedat: their upper endsto a cover member 14 designedzto close the upper open end 15 .of the casing when the lipstickis retracted into thecasing. This cover member. is in theform of a. fiat. plate, andmay be an integral portion of thesamesheet metal member of which the arms .13 are composed. Atthe front end of this cover member there is a depending lip 16 which, whenthe cover is moved into place, will slightly snap. over the upper edge 17 of the narrow wall 18 of the casing; At'theopp'osite end of this cover member there is another depending, flange 16a which. is adaptedcto contact with-fthe narrow wall 18a opposite the wall 18 first mentioned, to thereby actas a stop in determining the exact position of the cover when this is closing the upper end ofthecasing. 1 1 i n The journalsor pintles .12 find bearings in the opposing wide side wallslQ, 19d of the casing at a point near theedgesof said wider side walls i 19, 190,1. The 'arms13 taper in width downwardly from the cover member to the journals or made for holdinga lipstick of considerable length 0 within the casing because a long crank arm can be employed, owing to the fact that its center of a motion is neargoneedge of the side walls, and I the crank arm has ampleroom.withinwhich to describe an arc such as shown at 31 0f considera ble radius. Therefore, the carrier for the lipstick may move from a lo-w positionshown in.

full lines in Fig. 2 to its high position indicated in dotted lines iii-said figure The link 8 may be in the formof awire memberhaving its .upper.=

and lower ends bent laterally as indicated at 20, ZQ'ato .engagevthe pivot bearings onthe carrierand crank. arm 'member respectively.

- A s before. stated,;,the crank arm member- 11 is in the form of a plate,iand this is secured to the sheet metal cup shaped journals 12by rivet-.. ing, For-this purpose a lug indicated at 11a at the upper portion of the crankj'arm orplate projects through an opening inthe .bottom of thecup shaped. journal andthis projecting lugjis upset or subjected toa. riveting action which will aflix it to thesheet metal cup shapedv journaL, The lipstick. carrier member, together. with the crank plate and the linkall previously assembled are inserted into the sheet metal case suificient to retain the cover member in place against accidental dislodgment. Slight pressure upon the cover member,.however, inthe direca tion in which itimoves when swinging to. open position, will be. sufiicient to release the locking flange from its slight engagementwith the edge 1'7 so that theappliance readily may be opened.

The cover, together with its side arms and the 55 casing.

cup shaped embossments or journals 12 may be formed in one stamping from thin sheet metal.

The crank arm or plate 11 as shown in Fig. 3 is of special form, providing a narrow portion at 111) to receive the pintle of the link, and with a wider portion 110, the edge of which at 11d may have sliding contact with the inner wall of the This construction tends to brace: the thin sheet metal wall of the casing, and this effect is also accentuated by riveting the crank plate to the hollow journals of the arms which carry the cover. v

In order to operate the device the cover, together with its carrying arms, is moved from the position shown in full lines in Fig. 2 to the position shown in dotted lines in said figure, or to a position intermediate of these extreme positions, whereupon the journals 12' will turn in their bearings in the side walls of the-casing. and, thus the crank plate, which is attached to these journals, will be made to move'through the arc x of Fig. 2 to move the carrier member of the lipstick upwardlyto project the lipstick from the casing, and upon reversal of the movements above described, the lipstick-will be withdrawn withinthe casing and the cover seated in position to close the end of the casing.

' 'Itwillbenoted that not only are the journals offset in relationto the longitudinal center line of the walls which carry them, but these journals bear in'the wider side walls of the cross sectional oblong form of the casing, and this arrangement of these journals in connection with the oblong form of the casing in cross section are features contributing to the employment of a long crank arm, so-that'a lipstick of considerable length may be contained within the holder.

I' claim:
