" This invention relates to a wall receptacle, designed primarily for use in supporting a'can' or container containing deodorizing material which is released from welllmown containers of deodorizing material, wherein the deodorizing material is held under pressure and released by the action of a spring-controlled valved nozzle.
An important object of the invention is to provide a wall receptacle of this form, which may be secured within a closet or room in an out-of-theway place, the receptacle being so constructed that a container of the class described, may be readily and easily placed therein, without the use of tools, the container being securely held within the receptacle, against accidental displacement.
Another object of the invention is to provide means forming a part of the receptacle, for moving the container upwardly within the receptacle, forcing the valve of the container against a stationary stop bar forming a part of the receptacle, unseating the valve and releasing the deodorant to the atmosphere.
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 made in the construction and arrangement of parts without departing from the spirit of the invention as claimed.
Referring to the drawing:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of a. wall receptacle constructed in accordance with the invention, the operating lever having been removed.
Fig. 2 is a side elevational view of the receptacle, showing a deodorant container mounted therein, the upper and lower portions of the receptacle or container, being broken away.
Fig. 3 is a fragmental side elevational view of the receptacle with the stop bar of the receptacle in position therein.
Referring to the drawing in detail, the reference character 5 indicates the body portion of the receptacle, which is preferably cylindrical in formation, and constructed of any suitable material, preferably plastic.
readily and easily secured within a closet or room for supporting a container in; which .deodori'zing material'is held. 1
Extending upwardly and forwardly from the upper edgeof the body portion 5, are lugs Ill,
which have their: forwardly extending; portions spaced from the upper edge of the body portion 5 to cooperate with the lugs ll formed at the ends of the stop plate [2 in holding the stop plate in position on the upper end of the receptacle. The lugs II are formed by cutting notches H in the ends of the plate 12 adjacent to the forward edge of the plate, the notches being fitted over the lugs H] of the receptacle and the plate l2 swung downwardly to the position as shown by Fig. 3 of the drawing, whereupon the plate is held against displacement on the upper end of the receptacle.
In order to remove the plate it is necessary to swing the plate upwardly from the position shown by Fig. 3, and then move the plate forwardly away from the lugs It. This structure provides means for readily and easily securing the container in which the deodorizing material is held.
The deodorizing container is indicated by the reference character l4 and is provided with the usual nozzle I5 that is controlled by a spring valve, not shown, the valve being operated by pressure directed to the button [6 that extends above the nozzle 45.
On the lower surface of the plate It, is a wear plate. I! that rests directly on the button l6, as clearly shown by Fig. 2 of the drawing.
An opening I8 is formed in the bottom of the receptacle, and this opening has an inclined wall l9 providing a clearance for the lever 20 that is disposed within the opening Hi, the lever being formed with a right-angled end 2| that normally rests on the bottom of the receptacle, in position so that when the lever 20 is forced rearwardly, the right angled end 2| will contact the bottom of the container l4, lifting the container within the receptacle and forcing the button [6 against the wear plate [1, opening the valve in the nozzle IE to release deodorizing material under pressure to the atmosphere. When the lever 20 is released, it is obvious that the container will move downwardly and return to its normal position, the valve cutting ofi the flow of deodorizing material through the nozzle until the lever 20 is again operated.
From the foregoing it will be seen that due to the construction shown and described, I have provided a wall receptacle which may be permanently secured to the wall of a closet or room and a container in which deodorizing material is held, may be positioned within the receptacle so that the operating lever may be conveniently operated to release deodorizing material into the closet or room area, as desired.
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed is:
1. A wall receptacle comprising a cylindrical body portionliaving an open upper end and a closed lower end in which a container containing material to be dispensed under pressure is positioned, the material in the container being released through a spring pressed nozzle valve inthe upper end thereof, a stop bar removably'connected with the receptacle and extended across the open upper end of the receptacle against 4 which a container containing material under pressure, is positioned, and released by opening a nozzle valve, a lever comprising a, member having a right angled end portion, extending through an opening in the bottom of the body portion, the right angled end of the lever being normally spaced from the bottom of the container, said right angled end of the lever being movable into engagement with the bottom of the container elevating the container within the body portion, and
' a combined removable cover partially closing the H'open upper end of the body providing a stop against which the valve of the container engages,
operating the valve of the container when the which the spring valve of the nozzle is movedfor actuation, the bottom of the receptacle having an opening, a, lever extending through the open- 2. A wall receptacle, comprising a body portion 10 having an open upper end and a closed bottom in container is elevated a predetermined distance, releasing material contained in the container.
