7 claims. (ci. 13a-79;

This invention relates broadly to holders for personal use and more particularly to a holder for personal use designed to closely unite two rotary holders, each of which being capacitated to carry an element related in use to the other. This application is a continuation-in-part of my co-pending application Serial No. 50,999, tiled September 24, 1948, now Patent No. 2,695,028, granted November 23, 1954 and which in turn is a continuation-in-part of my prior application Serial No. 735,744, tiled March 19, 1947, and now Patent No. 2,458,663, granted January 4, 1949.

It is the general object of my invention to provide a rotary holder including two sections each of which holds a carrier longitudinally movable within the respective sections to advance and retract a dispensable element, so that such elements may be readily accessible and exposable for use and protectively carried therewithin when not in use.

A further object of the invention is to provide a rotary holder including two sections, each of which mounting therewithin a carrier and in which rotary holder, the means for connecting the two sections provides an operating handle for each of the two sections.

Specifically, it is the object of the invention to provide a cosmetic holder capacitated to carry two cosmetic sticks of different shade or related in use, in a light, convenient, attractive andk compact unitary rotary holder.

It is, also, an object of the invention to provide a rotary holder for cosmetic materials in which the cosmetic material carried therewithin is prevented from being advanced accidentally and smudging the cover cap when the rotary holder is not in use.

The foregoing objects as well as additional objects and advantages of the invention will be readily apparent in the course of the following detailed description taken in connection -with the accompanying drawings which illustrate, by way of example, preferred embodiments of the invention, and wherein:

Fig. l is a longitudinal sectional view of the lirst form of the device, illustrating the internal structure and arrangement of the component elements; the enlargement shown being an integral part of the inner tubular member and disposed intermediate its ends;

Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view of the second form of the device, illustrating the internal structure and arrangement of the component elements, the enlargement shown being formed on a connector member joined to the base of each of the two sections;

Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional view oi the third form of the device, illustrating the internal structure and arrangement of the component elements, the inner tubular member being of the same diameter substantially throughout its entire length, the enlargement being formed by an intermediate connecting band on the inner tubular member, intermediate its ends, and an outer tubular handle member joined to the inner tubular mem ber through the intermediate connecting band;

2,710,614 iatented June i4, 1955 Fig. 4 is a longitudinal sectional view of the fourth form of the device, illustrating the internal structure and arrangement of the component elements, the inner tubular member being of the same diameter substantially throughout its entire length, the enlargement being shown as a band on the inner tubular member intermediate its ends;

Fig. 5 is a view similar to Fig. 1, but showing the enlargement forrned with an outer restraining ring and a plurality of ridges circumferentially spaced around its periphery on each side of the outer restraining ring, and with the two cover caps in assembled position on the enlargement.

Referring to Fig. l, this discloses a rotary holder comprising an inner tubular member 1, open at both ends, and formed with an annular bead 2 adjacent each end. intermediate the ends of the inner tubular member there is formed an enlargement or band 3 connected to the inner tubular member by oifset shoulders 4. The enlargement divides the inner tubular member into a rst section 5 and a second section 6. Each of the sections is provided with a longitudinal slot 7. The longitudinal slots may be a single elongated slot extending substantially throughout the entire length of the inner tubular nember.

A sleeve member 8 having a helical slot 9 encircles each section of the inner tubular member on each side of the enlargement, the sleeve members being rotatable on their respective sections. An outer tubular member 10 encircles each or" the sleeve members. Each outer tubular member is frictionally engaged to its paired sleeve member so that rotation of the outer tubular member will be accompanied by rotation of the paired sleeve member in the same direction. The sleeve members and the outer tubular members at their lower ends are seated on the shoulders 4 of the enlargement. A carrier member ll, preferably in the form of a cup to hold a cosmetic stick, is positioned in each of the sections. Each of the carrier members is provided with a lateral guide pin or protrusion l2, the respective guide pins being positioned in both the helical and longitudinal slots of their respective sections, so that upon relative rotation between the outer tubular members and the inner tubular member, the carrier members will move longitudinally within their respective sections. The enlargement or band serves as an operating handle to rotate the inner tubular member relative to each of the outer tubular members.

Referring to Fig. 2, this discloses a rotary holder comprising two inner tubular members 13 and a connector member 14 therebetween. The connector member has reduced ends l5 frictionally secured to the respective bases of the two inner tubular members. As shown, the reduced ends of the connector member are fitted into the open ends of the two inner tubular members. However, this method of connection is optional and the reduced ends of the connector member could be pressfitted around the bases of the inner tubular members and the inner tubular members could have closed base ends. Each ot' the inner tubular members is provided with a longitudinal slot 16 for the reception of the guide pin of the carrier member therewithin. Sleeve members 8 and outer tubular members il? encircle each of the inner tubular members and are seated at their lower ends on the shoulders l? of the connector member 14. Rotation of the connector member will be accompanied by rotation of both inner tubular members relative to both outer tubular members when the outer tubular members are held stationary and when only one of the outer tubular members is held stationary, the other outer tubular member will rotate in the same direction asthe connector 3 member, thereby enabling single or simultaneous movement of the carrier members upon relative rotation.

Referring to Fig. 3, this discloses a rotary holder comprising an elongated inner tubular mernber iS, having a longitudinal slot l? in each of its two sections, The diameter of the elongated inner tubular member is substantially the same throughout its entire length. An intermediate connector band 2 is mounted, as by a presslit engagement, on the inner tubular rnern `er intermediate its ends. Ar: outer tubular handle member 22 is mounted on the intermediate member, as by a press-lit eigagVA fit, so that the outer tubular handle member is joined to the inner tubular member and rotation of the outer tubular handle member will be accompanied by rotation of the inner tubular member. Sleeve members S and outer tubular members 1S encircle the respective sections on opposite sides of the intermediate connector band and are seated on the shoulders 23 of the intermediate connector band. Carrier members il are positioned in each of the two sections. Tre cover cap Zl surrounds the er. sed portion of the outer tubular member on one side o` the outer tubular handle member. Only one cover cap is shown to clearly indicate the relationship of the outer tubular handle member to the outer tubular members and the cover caps, two cover caps normally being fitted on the holder. lt will be noted that outer tubular handle member loosely covers the lower ends of the outer tubular members that are seated on the shoulders 23.

)ceferring to Fig. this discloses a rotary holder coinprising an elongated inner tubular member 1S, as shown in Fig. 3. An enlargement or band 2S is mounted on the elongated inner tubular member intermediate its ends, 11s by a press-ht engagement or in any other manner so that the enlargement and the inner tubular member will rotate as a unit. Sleeve members 8 and outer tubular members lil encircle sections 2li on each side of the cnlargement 25 and are seated at their lower ends on shoulders 26. Carrier members 1i are positioned in each of the two sections.

Referring to Fig. 5, this discloses a rotary holder similar to l-"ig, l, tov/ever, the enlargement or band 27 is formed with an outer restraining ring 23, preferably in the form ol an annular bead, on which the cover caps 25 are seated. in order to symmetrically guide the cover caps and to assure positive frictional engagement between the cover caps and the enlargement, the enlargement is provided with a plurality ot circumferentially spaced ridges 3f: around its periphery on each side of the outer restraining ring. These ridges provide a holding surface of negiigibly small arca for holding the cover caps on the holder. The cover caps surround the outer tubular members and are held against cooperative rictional engagement with the outer tubular members by their cooperative engagement with the ridges, whereby the rotary holder is safeguarded against accidental advancement of the carrier members while the cover cups are in assembled position.

The enlargement or band in all the species Shown, may be formed to receive on its exterior the cover caps so as to prevent accidental actuation of the carrier members or any combination or arrangement of the cover caps may be made.

rhe device may be made out of metal, plastic or any other desired material, tor housing various articles. lt will be understood that the articles retained in the device are not to be restricted to cosmetic articles, but may be in the form of medicated and non-medicated materials, art materials, drugs and pills, small tools, and any other suitable article that may be carried in a rotary holder that may be carried conveniently on ones person or in a handbag of a lady.
