Specification of ILetters Patent. Application led February 6, 1909. Serial No. 4765-541."k i' To all whom Ait may concern: l
Be it known that I, JACOB J. HoNEcKnR, a citizen of the United States, residing at Cleveland, in the county of Cuyahoga and State of Ohio, have inventedcertain new l and useful Improvements in Combined Stop# pers andr Connections for Water-Bottles, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to a water bottle stopper constructed and adapted to operate substantially as shown and described and particularly claimed. L
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a sectional elevation of the device shown in connection with a water bottle, and Fig. 2 is a sectional elevation of the parts shown in Fig. l inverted, and hose engaged upon' the stem of the stopper.
The object of the invention will be apparent from the foregoing views,` as will more clearly appear in the detailed description herein. f
Referring to the drawings, the invention y is shown as connected with a water bag or bottle B, and includes a tube or stem S which is present in every application and use of the invention and constitutes a core or central part upon andV about which all the other parts of the invention are assembled. As such, the said stem must have at least three distinctive or special features of construction, and a fourth one is necessary in a certain use, as will be presently seen. First, the said stem or core is a straight'tube and vprovided v'with an integral relatively small flange 3 at its inner end. Said flange necessarily is small in orderto enter into the small bore or opening formed in washbasin faucets generally.
In connection with bottle B, I employ a commensurately large washer w next to the stopper 2 and a correspondingly large washer 5 next outside of said `stopper or member 2 and between which expansion of the same is effected by means of nut 4. Said nut engages the relatively raised'screw 'thread a on stem S at about the middle thereof and is adapted to be run `up on said thread as far as any expansion may require to engage the connection as a whole. The said flange and thread are therefore among the several necessary featuresof construction of stem S. A further essential feature of stem S is the smaller tapered outer portion referred to herein as the nipple k8 and upon or over which the hose H are adapted to be dra-Wn, for jwhateverl'us'ethey may be' lratentedr l employed.` Thus in Figf 2 the Those is'presumfed'to be used with a douclieior the like for internalypurposes, while (with slight vafriations thedevice is applicableto a bath tubfaucet fora spray or'shower bath, or to kitchen or wash. basin faucets for various purposes. the stem S is designed to be wide open, and the nipple 8 purposely' has such length as to enable the hose to be drawn back over the same asuflicient distance to make a firm engagement within'the nut cavity 10.- Hence v nut 4 is substantially thimble shaped so that In all these and kindred cases A the hose canbe sleeved over the nipple into f said nut and thus not onlyy economize space but make a connection which can be bodily retired within the iiaring mouth 9 of the bag. In case the device be used with a water bottle for ordinary purposes the stop# per as a whole is inserted into the threaded neck llfand it is then sealed or closed by screwing the kplug 6 in the end of stem S, which is threaded internally for this purposev and preferably against a washer 7. The nut 4 is shown knurled at 12` to facili'- tate its. o eration. This is the only shown use of said plug but it is essential for water bag purposes.
i Obviously the interchangeability of certain of the parts is of rst importance; -The core or stem S is used in all cases, as is also nut 4, but the washers and the stop er must be of sizes corresponding to the aucets with which connection or coupling is to be made.
Thus, for a common wash basin faucet no inner washer at all is used and only a small rubber or stopper, and' for ythe other uses above referred to different sizes of inner washers and rubbers are used as are needed.
-As shown' the nipple end 8 of the stem S must be sufficiently smaller in diameter than the middle'exteriorly threaded portion to permit the differentially bored nut 4 to pass over the bead 8 of the nipple. vFrom the foregoing description it will'be apparent that vthe entire device mustL be small and compactv and yet the maximum amount of,
room must be providedwithin the nut 4 for manipulation of the hose I-I. The wall of the stem S at the nipple 8 may be compara' tively thin and hence the bead 8 will serve not only to' retain the hose in place but will constitute an effective reinforcement to pre-v vent the plug 6 from" splitting the outer'end of the stem when screwed tightly therein.
Thus a universal stopper connection .is `l provided which is preparedI to go toan'yfl slz'e orstyle of faucet or llke water outlet about the house and make either' ya* running' f or ay the Ystem on the outer side of said sleeve and rsubstantially surrounding the nipple endy of 5' sealed connection as may be What I claim isrv The hereindescribed ,1 w
