2 Claims. (Cl. 220-67) This invention relates generally to receptacles and is more particularly concerned with a garbage receptacle having a plurality of replaceable parts which may be substituted one for the other in the event anyone of them becomes Worn out.
A more specific object of the invention is to provide a garbage receptacle including a separate side wall member having a lower inner peripheral annular flange upon which is juxtaposed a cooperating bottom and gasket member, the bottom of the side wall member having secured thereto an annular clamp ring, all of the cooperating parts having aligned apertures through which removable fastening elements are secured whereby all of the parts may be readily detached and replaced.
A further object of the invention in conformance with that set forth above is to provide a garbage receptacle of the character set forth which is readily and economically manufactured, easily assembled and maintained, and highly satisfactory and utilitarian for the purpose intended.
These together with other objects and advantages which will become subsequently apparent reside in the details of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawings forming a part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which:
Figure l is a perspective view of the novel garbage receptacle;
Figure 2 is an enlarged sectional view taken substantially on the line 22 of Figure 1;
Figure 3 is an exploded perspective view of the cooperating parts of the novel garbage receptacle;
Figure 4 is a sectional view taken substantially on the line 4-4 of Figure 2;
Figure 5 is an enlarged fragmentary sectional view taken substantially on the line 5-5 of Figure 4; and
Figure 6 is an enlarged fragmentary sectional view taken substantially on the line 6-6 of Figure l.
The novel garbage receptacle is indicated generally at 10 and includes a side wall member 12, a lid member 14 and a replaceable bottom assembly 16. The side wall member 12 and the lid member 14 include suitable oppositely disposed handle grip portions indicated at 18 and 29, respectively.
The side wall member 12 includes a side wall portion 22 terminating in an annular flange 24 extending about the inner periphery of the lower edge of the side wall member. Although not shown, the flange 24 of the side wall member includes a plurality of equidistantly spaced apertured portions extending transversely therethrough.
An annular sealing gasket 26 having a plurality of aper- 2 ur s2 ex endin .th ethmug f rlig e t iththose q th fl ugeze tIheQSideWaIl. m m e iuxt p-Qsedcn saidflange*24as clearly seen in Figures 5 and 6. Juxtaposed upon the gasket 26 is a suitable bottom member 30 having a plurality of apertures 32 extending about the periphery thereof for alignment with those in the gasket member and flange 24 of the side wall member.
Secured on the bottom of the flange 24 and extending therearound is a clamp ring 34 comprising a horizontal flange portion 36 having a plurality of apertures 38 extending transversely therethrough for alignment with the previously mentioned apertures in the gasket member, the bottom member, and flange of the side wall member, said flange 36 including an angularly related integral flange portion 40 which is engageable with the lower outer portion 42 of the side wall member 12 whereby the parts are clamped in a sealed relationship by means of a plurality of nut and bolt assemblies 44.
If desired, a plurality of foot elements 46 comprising a substantially vertical ground-engaging portion 48 including a first angular bent portion 50 engageable with a lower portion 52 of the ring 40, said portion 50 terminating in a horizontally angulated portion 54 engageable beneath the flange 36 of the ring 34. The foot members 46 may be secured to the clamp ring 34 by means of suitable wells as seen at 56 and 58.
The garbage receptacle may be constructed of any suitable material such as metals, plastics, etc. and as is obvious incorporates a plurality of parts which are replaceable, especially the bottom member thereof whereupon there is provided a consistently satisfactory garbage receptacle which is relatively easily repaired with the minimum of expense and effort.
Various positional directional terms such as front, rear, etc. are utilized here and have only a relative connotation to aid in describing the device and are not intended to require any particular orientation with respect to any external elements.
The'foregoing is considered as illustrative only of the principles of the invention. Further, since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction and operation shown and described, and accordingly, all suitable modifications and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the invention as claimed.
What is claimed as new is as follows:
1. A garbage receptacle having replaceable parts consisting of a cylindrical side wall member, an annular flange extending around an inner peripheral edge of the cylindrical side wall member, a gasket member juxtaposed on one side of the annular flange Within the cylindrical side wall member, a circular bottom member overlying the gasket member within the cylindrical side wall member, an annular clamp ring extending juxtaposed on the annular flange of the side wall member opposite the bottom member, and a plurality of removable fastening elements extending through alignable apertures in the annu lar flange of the side wall member, bottom member, gasket member, and clamp ring, said clamping ring including in tegral angularly related flange portions one of which engages about the periphery of the annular flange on the side wall member, the other of which engages the lower outer side wall portions of the side wall member.
2. A garbage receptacle having replaceable parts consisting of a cylindrical side wall member, an annular flange extending around an inner peripheral edge of the cylindrical sidewall member, a gasket member juxtaposed on one side of the annular flange within the cylindrical side wall member, a circular bottom member overlying the gasket member within the cylindrical side Wall member, an annular clamp ring extending juxtaposed on the annular flange of the side wall member opposite the bottom member, and a plurality of removable fastening elements extending through alignable apertures in the annular'flange of the side wall member, bottom member,
