iirg, Maine this invention relates@ improvements jin-kits for ltrans-porting toiletar ticles.
. An Object of the invention iS i0 prelim? [an improved A--kit for transporting toilet articles adapted to be placed within ,a larger handbag and so constructed that no damage may be inilicted upon the articles during transportation.
, Another object oi the invention is to provide an improved kit for transporting toilet ,articles including a substantially rigid hollow fbody having a cover hinged thereto and a soft cushioning lining supported in said body and top solely by means of the contour thereof.
A still further object of the invention is to provide an improved kit for transporting toilet articles including a substantially rigid metal or plastic case having a cover hinged thereto and a locking member therefor, said case and cover being provided with linings of neoprene or some other desired cushioning material which will be shaped to lit the inner surfaces of said case and cover and to be supported therein by the shaping or" said parts to provide a waterproof and air-tight case for carrying toilet articles of Various types so that the same will not be injured and so that if any liquid in the case should spill it will not leak out of the case in injure other articles carried with the case in a handbag or other piece of luggage.
Another object of the invention is to provide an improved form of kit for transporting toilet articles which will be highly eilicient in operation, and relatively inexpensive to manufacture and produce. l l
Other objects -will appear as the description proceeds.
in the accompanying drawings which form a part of this application,
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the improved kit for transporting toilet articles, showing the same in locked position;
Figure 2 is a sectional view taken on the line 2-2 of Figure l, and
Figure 3 is an enlarged detailed sectional view through a portion of the case and cover showing the lock or latch mechanism therefor in unlocked position.
Like characters of reference will be used throughout the following specication and the accompanying drawings to designate corresponding parts.
In carrying out the invention, there is provided a substantially rectangular shaped rigid case generally designated by the reference nurneral I having a cover 2 therefor secured to said case by means of the hinge or hinges 3,
ushered-keeper@ Suenr'tsdimonihe @ese @affirmed integrally therewith, and @generates .with `the V,pivoted .operating vinger 55 supported upon the front edge of the cover 2, fsaid'nger ,pix/orally Supporting the U- snaped'iickinglop 6 Ywhich is adapted to be disposed over the U-shaped keeper `4v when the pivoted operating linger 5 is in released position, whereupon when said nger 5 isfpushed upwardly, as illustrated in Figures 1 and 2, tension will be placed upon the U-shaped locking loop 6 to securely lock the cover 2 upon the case I. A tongue 20 is formed on the cover 2 adjacent the pivoted operating nger 5 and is adapted to be received in the notched seat or receptacle 2I formed in the upper edge of the case I, as clearly illustrated in Figures 1 and 2 of the drawings.
The upper edge of the case I is provided with an interiorly disposed U-shaped lip 1, while a similar formed U-shaped lip 8 is formed about the inner lower edge of the cover 2 to lie parallel with said lip l when the cover is in closed position upon the case I, as illustrated in Figure 2 of the drawings.
A lining 9 of neoprene or any other desired cushioning material is disposed within the case I, and is provided with a peripheral bead or flange I@ adapted to be received in the U-shaped lip 'i formed about the inner periphery of said case I, with the lining 9 lying parallel with all parts of the inner surface of said case I.
A similarly formed cover lining II is provided, being formed of neoprene or any other suitable cushioning material and is likewise provided with the peripheral bead I2 adapted to be disposed or lreceived within the U-shaped lip 8 formed about the periphery of the cover 2, whereby when said cover 2 is closed upon the case I, an air-tight and water-tight seal will be made between said parts, which will trap air within the case to support and force the linings 9 and II into contact with the case and cover to hold the same in position without the use of any form of adhesive or other type of fastening means.
From the foregoing description, it will be apparent that there has been devised a highly efcient form of kit for transporting toilet articles which will be relatively inexpensive to manufacture and produce.
If desired, the kit may be made out of plastic or light metal, or from any desired material which Will be resistant to crushing when it is placed within a handbag or other piece of luggage. Furthermore, the case and cover may be painted any desired color if desired, and will provide an eiilcient form of waterproof and airproof container for carrying the necessary toilet articles customarily used in travelling.
While the preferred embodiment of the instant invention has been illustrated and described, it will be understood that Yit is not intended to limit the scope of the invention thereto, as many minor changes in detail of construction may be resorted to without departure from the spirit of the invention.
Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is:
1. A carrying case comprising a pair of complementary shells, U-shaped grooves formed in the adjacent edges of said shells, said grooves being disposed in aligned registry when the shells are secured together and forming a channel, an inner flexible lining for each shell section, said lining having beaded edges frictionally `fitted in the grooves of the shell sections whereby an airtight seal will be effected at the adjacent edges of the shell sections when the sections are secured together.
2. A carryingl case comprising a main section having upstanding Walls and a lid section hinged- `ly connected thereto and having depending Walls, latch means for said sections, U-shaped grooves formed on the free edges of said sections, said grooves being disposed in aligned registry when the sections are secured together to form a cha-nnel, a flexible lining for the main section and a similar flexible lining for the lid section, beaded marginal edges on said linings frictionally iitted in the grooves for retaining the linings in Contact with the inner surfaces of the sections, said beaded edges being compressed together to form an air-tight seal when the edges of the walls of the sections are brought together.
