LOCK FOR TOY BANKS.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed .Tune 18, 1908.

Patented June 22, 1909.

Serial No. 438,326.

To all whom 'it may concern:

Be it known that I, CHRISTIAN HANSEN, a citizen of theUnited States, and a resident Lot San Antonio, in the county of Bexar and State of Texas, have invented a new and Improved Lock for Toy Banks, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

My invention relates to toy banks, and has for its object to provide a bank with a door to which is secured a recept-acle which is adapted to contain camphor, menthol, or other similar substance, which will gradually decrease in size when exposed to the air, there being a supported bolt on which there is a plate which is adapted to press against the contents of the box; a bar being secured to the door post, a pawl being pivoted to the bolt, a spring being mounted on the bolt, which is adapted not only to press the plate against the contents of the box, but which is also adapted to keep the pawl in engagement with the bar; the bar which is secured to the door post having a free terminal which will permit the pawl to slide oil therefrom, to unlock the door; and I also provide an indicator on the front of the door which is adapted to show the position of the pawl relatively to the said bar.

In this specification I will describe the preferred forni of my invention, but I do not limit myself thereto, as I consider myself entitled to all forms and embodiments of the invention which may be held to fall within the scope otI the appended claims.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures, in which- Figure 1 is an elevation showing the oxterior of a bank door, to which my invention has been applied; F ig. 2 is an interior view of the bank door to which my invention has been applied; Fig. 3 is a sectional View on the line 3 3 of Fig. 2; Fig. 4 is f a sectional view on the line 1w-4 ot' Fig. 2;

and Fig. 5 is a sectional view on the line 5-5 of Fig. 3.

It will be understood that my invention is particularly designed for use in connection with toy banks, and that the toy bank 1 may be constructed in any approved manner and that the door 2 may hinge thereto, in any appropriate method which is familiar to those acquainted with the art. To the door 2 is secured a receptacle 3 which is adapted to conta-in camphor, menthol, or other similar material which will decrease in size when exposed to the air, the receptacle having one side 4, open to permit of a plate 5 having sliding engagement with the interior of the box; the plate being` mounted on ar hollow bolt 6 which is supported on a stem 7, which is secured to the bank door 2 by means of a flange S. A pawl 9 is secured to the hollow bolt 6 and is adapted to move therewith when the hollow bolt 6 slides on the stem 7. A coil spring 1() is disposed on the hollow bolt 6, one terminal of the spring being secured to the pawl 9 and the other terminal being secured to the bearing 11 which is secured to the door Q. The coil springr 1() serves two purposes; one of which is to press the hollow bolt 6 with the plate 5, so that the plate will press on the contents ot the receptacle 3, and the other purpose is to keep the pawl 9 in engagement with a bar 1Q, which is secured to a door post 13, by means of a lange 14. To the plate 5 is secured a rod 15 which engages an arm 16 secured to a stud 17, which is journaled in the door 2, and to which, on the outside of the door is secured a pointer 1S.

In using' my invention, the parts are constructed and are disposed as has been indicated, with a quantity of cainphor, menthol or other similar substance 19 disposed in the receptacle 8, or it desired, this receptacle 3 may be so constructed that substances which will diminish in size when exposed to the air, may be introduced as desired by the user of the bank. The substance 19, having been introduced into the receptacle 3, the door of the bank is closed, when the pawl 9 will engage the bar 12 and will be held in this engagement by means of a coil spring 10. The bank will then be found to be locked, and until the substance 19 so decreases in size as to permit the plate 5 to assume with the hollow bolt 6, such a position with reference to the receptacle 3, which will permit the bolt, which is adapted to travel with the hollow bolt, to slip ott' the free terminal of the bar 12. vWhen the pawl 9 does slip off the bar 12, the door of the bank Will be found to be unlocked.

Y Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
