SLIDABLE APPARATUS TO CARRY A WASTE CONTAINER y f/MWU i C ubzey United States Patent O 2 Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE Apparatus in combination with a cabinet having a door, a slide mov-ably retained in said cabinet and adapted t carry a waste container. Connecting means between said door and slide assures, upon opening or closing the door, that the slide with container will respectively m'ove outwardly to position of use, or inwardly.
The principal object of my invention is to provide apparatus that will deliver a waste container to position of use by merely opening a door and then will remove it from sight by merely closing said door.
Another object is to provide a slide for said apparatus whereby movement to and from position of use while carrying a waste container may be accomplished with fa minimum of eifort.
The foregoing and other objects which will appear as the nature of the invention is better understood, may be accomplished by a construction, combination 'and operative arrangement of parts such as is disclosed by the drawings. The nature of the invention is such as (to render it susceptible to various changes 'and moditica tions, and therefore, I am not to be limited to the construction disclosed by the drawings nor to the particular parts described in `the speciiica'tion; but am enti'tled to all such changes therefrom as fall within the scope of my claims.
In the drawings:
FIG. 1 is a perspective view showing my apparatus and a cabinet that receives it, the 'cabinet door being shown partly open and the waste container shown outside the cabinet, in position to receive waste.
FIG. 2 is an enlarged, front elevational view of my apparatus, omitting the waste container and connecting means, but including the tloor of the cabinet which is shown in sec'tion.
FIG. 3 is a top plan view of my apparatus taken at a right angle to said FIG. 2, 'the slide for the waste container being shown within the cabinet and the container being omitted, the cabinet sides being shown in section.
FIG. 4 is a side elevational view of my apparatus the cabinet being shown in section and cut away.
As illustrated, rI provide guide means shown as two U-shaped or channel tracks and '12 spaced laterally apart. =They are attached to a foundation l14 as by ce- 3,425,765 Patented Feb. 4, 1969 ICC menting or otherwise. Said foundation may be the bottom 'of enclosure means 116 shown as a well-known 'kitchen cabinet.
A slide 18 in the form of a flat board is slidably rctained in the channels lof said tracks and it carries a stop 20 at the rear `and another stop 2-2 at the front to serve as retainers for a waste 'basket or otherwaste container 2'3. Said slide 18 also has a reinforcing member 24 at the rear.
To control the movement of `said )slide 18 I provide connecting means 26 having a lever 28 -screwed as at 30 at one end to `said slide '18. At its opposite end said lever has a hole 29 in it.
Said enclosure means "16 has a swinging door 32 which closes the space occupied by said slide y18. To said door 32 a bracket or support '34 4is attached by screw '36. A stud 38 extends from said bracket 34 downwardly and movably enters said hole 29, making the connection between said d-oor 32 and said slide 18.
Normally said door 32 closes 'said enclosure means 1'6, with said slide '18 and the container 23 carried thereon within and out of sight. Upon opening the door the slide is carried outwardly bringing said 'container forwardly of said enclosure means I16 'to a position of use to receive waste matter. Upon closing said door the slide and container move inwardly within said enclosure means.
What =I claim is:
1. 'Apparatus in combination with enclosure means having a swinging door, said apparatus ycomprising guide means supported by said enclosure means, a slide adapted to carry a container slidable horizontally in said guide means, and connecting means having a lever pivotally and iXedly attached to `said slide at the front half of the latter and intermediate opposite sides thereof.
2. Apparatus in combination 'with enclosure means as set forth in claim 1, said guide means being spaced rearwardly from the rear extremity -of said enclosure means and extending to a point adjacent "the front extremity of the latter, ysaid guide means and slide being parallel to and alongside each other.
