`Lettera Patent No. 75,689, dated March 17, '1868.
TO ALL WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
Be it known `that I,`MORRIS MATTSON, of the city of New York, in the county of New York, and State of New York, have invented a new and improved Syringe-Case; and Ido hereby declare that thefollowing is a.`
full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon, and making a part of this specfication.- i I t Syl-inges, as now usually constructed, are provided with three or four, and sometimes even greater number,
of`injecting-tubes or detachable parts, all of which are put loosely into a common case with the syringe. Such tubes end detachable parts are thusliuble to rub against each other, and against the metallic' parts of the syringe, `thus mai-ring and doinginjury to the finely-dnish'ed Ametallic surfaces, and also rubbing against and discoloring, and sometimes injuring the other portions ofthe syringe. The several parts of the syringe, when thus placed in a common box or case, also shake about and rattle unpleasantly when the instrument is carried temporarily in the pocket or about the person; as is necessary previous to use. v
My improved syringe-case is intended to'obv'ate all 'these objections. The syringe and its different tubes and connections, as' many as are required, can be Vcarriedwithout noise or rattling, all are kept distinct and separate from eachother, and are prevented rubbing against onevanother, or against the other parts of the syringe, and syringe and tubes arevxnade to occupyrbut a small space.
Figure 1 is a view of'such a syringe with its-removable tray and case, the several tubes and parts of the syringe in position therein. i'
Figure 2 shows the same case with its tray removed.- t
Figure 3 shows the removable tray, with the tubes, &c., taken outiof it.
The case or box A, shown more plainly in iig. 2, is made just about long enough to receive the elastic bulb a, and the section b of the inlet-tube connecting with it, and but a little wider and higher than such bulb a. Sufficient room is also left, within such case orlbox, to coil and stow the elasticdischarging-tube c, and also to receive an additional' detached elastic tube-d.` Fitting within such case, and in its upper part, is placed a shallow tray, B, figs. 1, 3, the bottom of which at one end is eut away in an oblong opening, e, as seen more plainly at e, in fig. 3, so that when such tray is placed within the case A, resting on the' supper-tsj', fia-ed in the corners of the box or case, the bulb c will pass up through such opening e, as seen in iig. 1, nearly to the top thereof. Such opening in the tray should not, however, be so large as to permit the bulb a to pass throughit. The supportsj` are so placed in the casevtbat when the lid Cof the case is closed, such lid will cause the tray to set closely down upon the supportsf, and also hold Vthe bulb properly in position. Eircept for such opening e, the traywouldhave to rest upon the bulbfthereby being liable to be upset and disarrangerhand would not rest in its seat, until pressed down by the closing ofthe lid, or the height ci' the case wouldhave to be considerably increased. v
In the end ofthe tray, opposite to that whichthe opening e is made to receive the bulb a, and 'allow the tray to `set over such bulb, as described, are-fixed a couple of cross-pieces, gg, which are grooved or recessed, so as to receive and securely hold the diii'erent injeeting-tubes, 1 2 3 4, required, and also an extension inlettube 5f A spray-tube, 6, may also be inserted, if desired.
The trayhas sulicient room, without interfering with the bulb, to give a separate place for all necessary injecting-tubes, whereby they are securely held and prevented from rubbing against on'e `another, or the di fl`ei' ent parts of the syringe, and from which, when the lid is closed and fastened, they `cannot be displaced. All unpleasant noise or rattling is also thereby prevented. When the case is opened, the bulb and the several .injecting-tubes, Ste., are not only tastefully displayed, but convenient fori-early use.
What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure b v Letters Patent, is
As a new article of manufacture, a syringe-case, constructed substantially as described, with a removable tray, and having such tray recessed or cut away at or near one end, to allow the bulb of the syringe to pass up through the tray, and tted at the other end with suitable rests or grooves to holdfand keep separateV from each other the several injecting-tubes required. i
