Patented Dec. 28, 1937 UNITED STATES C'AR ODORIZER.

Curtis E. Bradburn, Garden City, Kans., assignor to Harry L. Divine, Garden City, Kans.

Application October 15, 1936, Serial No. 105,816

2 Claims.

This invention relates to a device for use within vehicles or other enclosures whereby any one of several perfumes may be released into the area surrounding the same. It is a continuation in part of an application filed by me on July 25, 1936, Serial Number 92,677.

An object of the invention is to provide a simple, compact and attractive device of this character which can be supported wherever desired and includes a series of perfume containers having a common cover which can be shifted for the purpose of releasing an odor from any selected container.

With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds,

the invention consists of certain novel details of construction and combinations of parts hereinafter more fully .described and pointed out in the claims, it being understood that changes may be 20 parts without departing from the spirit of the invention as claimed.

In the accompanying drawing the preferred form of the invention has been shown.

In said drawing: Figure 1 is a plan view of the device. Figure 2 is a section on line 2 2, Figure 1. Figure 3 is a. section on line 3-3, Figure 2. Figure 4 is a section on line 4 4, Figure 2. Referring to the figures by characters of reference I designates a casing provided at one end with any suitable means for attachment to a support. In the drawing this means has been shownV regularly spaced openingsr4 the upper ends of` which are countersunk as at 5 to form seats for 40 annular flanges 6 at the upper or open ends of containers l. These containers are thus suspended from the head. They can be made of glass or other suitable material and can be of any desired proportions. Usually they are in the shape of glass vials.

Seated on the iiange 6 of each container is a sealing gasket 8 of rubber or the like and these gaskets are all slidably engaged by the iiat bottom surface of a cover 9 in the form of a disk. 50 This cover isl mounted on a pivot device I0 extending from the center of 'head 3 and it is made in the construction and arrangement ofY formed with a single opening Il which can be brought into position above any one of the containers 'l or into position between any two of the containers. When the opening is in this latter position, ask illustrated in Figure 1, all of the 6 containers are closed.

If desired a latch l2 can be mounted on the cover 9 and a series of notches I3 can be formed in the periphery of head 3. The latch, when seated in any of these notches, will hold the cover 10 against rotation and the notches can be so located as to hold the cover when in any of its open or closed positions.

Each container 'l holds a perfume I4 which can be in the form of a stick or a paste. The perfumes in the several containers can be diiierent. Therefore, by shifting cover 9, the preferred perfume can be exposed to odorize the adjacent area.

If the odorant is in cartridge or stick form as shown for example at O in Figures 3 and 4, it 20 can be provided at its center with a core I4 of wire or any other suitable material one end of which is split to form oppositely extending curved arms l5 supported beyond one end of the odorant and constituting resilient members for bearing 1. An odorizer including a container, a support therefor, a cover for the container, an adorant in solid form insertible into the container, a core seated in the odorant, and resilient means extending from one end of the core Vfor supporting the odorant on the coreand for frictionally engaging the wall of the container to hold the Vodorant in a predetermined position. Y 2. An odorizer including a head, a series of containers supported thereby and open at one end, a cover normally closing all of the containers and rotatably mounted on the head, said cover having an opening movable into or out of register with any one of the containers, an odorant in solid form supported in each container, a core seated in the odorant, and resilient means carried by the core for supporting the odorant on the core and for frictionally engaging the wall of its container to hold the odorant in a predetermined position.
