Application September 2, 1936, Serial No. 99,115 5 Claims. My invention relates to improvements in gar ment markers and it consists of the combinations, constructions and arrangements hereinafter de = scribed and claimed. Figure 1; form of the device shown in my Patent No. hollow ring; -_ ented device I show a hollow ring for encircling the skirt, and, this ring is adjustable to the de sired height above the ?oor or other supporting surface. The ring is provided with a plurality of small openings on its inner side and novel ; means is used for forcing talcum powder or other 15 powdered marking material into the ring and through the openings for marking the skirt or 20 ing drawings forming a part of this application, in which Figure 1 is a side elevation of the device; Figure 2 is a section along the line 2-2 of An object of my invention is to provide a gar ment marker which is an improvement over the 1,404,318, issued January 24, 1922‘. In the pat 10 (Cl. 33-9) ,Figure 4 is a, section along the line 4-—4 of Figure 3; showing the parts in a different position; Figure 6 is an end view showing the swingable portion of the hollow ring in open position; Figure 7 is a section along the line 1——'l of Figure 1; and rapid marking of the skirt ismade possible. Figure 2; and tion of the ring may be swung back into posi tion. , I provide an improved means for convey ing the powdered marking material such as tal ‘v cum powder or the like to the hollow ring and 30 the ring in turn has small openings on its inner side that will direct the material against the garment. The ring is mounted on a sleeve that is adjust \ ably secured to a standard and this standard is 35 marked to indicate the height of the ring above the supporting surface. The sleeve'may be ad justed on the standard and secured in adjusted position. The pump for forcing air into the container carrying the powder or other marking 40 material is preferably secured to the top of the sleeve and in a position where it may be readily actuated. Novel means is provided for inclining the ring at a slight angle to the horizontal if it is de 45,. sired to mark the skirt in such a manner. The ring also may be swung into inoperative position, and this movement will cut off communication between the container for the marking material and the ring. Other objects and advantages will appear in the following speci?cation, and the novel fea tures of the device will be particularly pointed out in the appended claims. 55 My invention is illustrated in the accompany 15 Figure 8 is a section along the line 8-8 of Figure 2; ‘ without the necessity of stepping over the ring. 25 After the person has entered, the movable por a Figure 5 is a section similar to Figure 4 but 10 other garment. The skirt is worn by a person during the marking, and in this way an accurate In the present invention I provide a split hol~ low ring for encircling the skirt, and a portion of this ring may be swung away from the other portion to permit the person to enter the ring 5 Figure 3 is a section through a portion of the Figure 9 is a section along the line 9-9 of Figure 10 is a side elevation of the pump and associate mechanism. In carrying out my invention I provide a stand ard comprising a base I and an upright 2. The upright is square in cross section and has mark ings 3 on one face thereof, as shown in Figure 10. ' These markings indicate inches and half inches and their purpose will be described here inafter. A sleeve indicated generally at 4 is adjustably mounted on the upright 2 and may be locked in adjusted position by means of a wing nut 5 that is carried at the top of the sleeve and is designed to enter any one of several depressions 6 formed in the side of the upright containing the mark ings 3, see Figure 10. I have shown the depres sion 6 disposed every inch apart, although addi tional depressions may be provided if desired. The sleeve 4 may be moved with respect to the upright 2, and then the set screw 5 adjusted for securing the sleeve in position. 40 Near the bottom of the sleeve 1 provide a cross arm 1 and one end of this arm is designed to removably receive a cap 8. Figure 9 shows the cap 8 secured to the arm 1 by means of a set screw 9 or other suitable fastening means. The arm ‘I is hollow, and the free end that receives the cap 8 is plugged by a block In. A tube ll extends through a portion of the plug Ill and then is bent in the manner shown in Figure 2 so as to extend through an opening 50 in the wall of the hollow arm 1. The sleeve por tion of the cap 8 is provided with a slot l2 for receiving the tube II that projects from the wall of the arm ‘I. . In Figure 2 I also show the tube H extending 55 2,099,943 2 the interior of the tube H as well as an outer slot 42 registering with the open end of the tube ii. The hollow ring 4| is held in the horizontal position shown in Figure l by means of members 43 rigidly secured to the ring by set screws 44. wall that encloses the same tube. In this way a tight seal is made between the conduit and the tube. movement in the cap while permitting rotative diametrically across a container [3. The tube extends through'both sides of the container and has its free end telescoping into a conduit M. The conduit l4 has an inner wall that enters Cu The members 43 bear against the sides of the cap 8 and hold the ring against longitudinal movement. An adjusting member 45 is secured to the members 43, see Figure 9, and carries 10 conduit i4 provided'with a check valve H3. The a set screw 48 that bears against the under side stem l‘l?of the check valve is' provided with a of the cap 8. An adjustment of the set screw shoulder it that bears against a supporting 35 will move the member 45 and the member turn will swing the ring 4| in the closed end member l9 that in turn is carried by a collar. 15 15 28. The collar is rigidly secured to the sleeve :48. .Inthis way the ring may be adjusted into 4 and has a ring 2! secured thereto. The pump "a horizontal position, or it may be moved into an Figure 1 shows the conduit |4 leading from 10 the tube ii to a pump l5. Figure 10 shows the l5 sits within the ring 2| andv rests upon the supporting member l9. The stem H has its upper end screwed into the‘ bottom‘ 22 ‘of the pump casing, and in this way the pumpzis locked against the support I9 and is held against ver tical ' movement by the‘ shoulder 7'18 ' bearing against the support I9. " ' " ~ The tube 90f the ‘5 pump casing l5 extends 25 through a second Iring 23" and this ring is‘se cured to the sleeve 4 by a second collar A piston 25 reciprocates within the pump I5 and is actuated ‘by a piston rod 26 and a handle 21. During the'upéstr'oke'of "the handle 21 a ball 30 check 28 in the check valve |_5 raises and permits air'to enter the'p‘u'mp. A downward movement of the ihandleg2‘l'will close the/ballt check 28 and will forcer‘the air through the conduit I4 and into the tube | l. ‘ " / Iii-"Figures Z'an'd 8 I show the tube |_| en 1 closed by a short sleeve 29 that extends across the inside'of the container I3" and'pro'jec'ts be yond one side of the container. This sleeve '29 has its-rend‘i‘cutl'lto' form a half lap‘joint ‘38i 'A stub sleeve 3| is secured to the tube"|| and is provided with a 'h'alfda'p joint "32 eooperating with the joint 39. When the container ‘l3 is slipped onto the tube H, the sleeve 29 encloses the-portion of 'the’tube || disposed "within the '45 container" l3. The sleeve 29- cooperates 'with the'stubsleeve 9| to entirely enclosetheiportion of the tube 3H ‘projecting from ‘the arm‘l'. An outer sleeve 3|’ ‘house'srthe half lap joint and‘ extends from the cross arm ‘I to the container l3. "'TheT-fpurposeof’the half lap joints 38 and 32 is to align-the three small openings v>33 in the tube H ‘with similar openings 34 in the sleeve 29. A large opening 35' in the ‘tube II will also be 'alignedwithan opening 39 of the'same diameter initheisleeve'29. ~A partition 31 extends across the tube | l and separates the small openings 33 from the large opening 35. " ’ Referring to Figure 8, it will be noted that air entering the tube H from the conduit ‘I4 will be 60 forced through the small openings 33‘and 34 and down into a quantity’of marking material 38 dis posed in the bottom of'the container '|3.‘ The openings 33 and '34 extend in different directions, and cause‘jets of air to enter the material 38 and 65 to’agitate it’violently. The air then will flow from th'e‘container. back into the tube I I through 70 the aligned‘ openings 35' and 346, ‘and carry some of the marking material therewith. In Figure ‘9 I show the tube || projecting be yond end of the arm ‘I and entering a recess 39 formed in the closed end 40 of the cap 8. ‘The/closed end 49 is bored transversely for re ceiving a hollow ring 4|. This hollow ring is ro 75 tatably mounted in the portion “and has a inclined'position. In?Figure l Ifshow the ring 4| swingable into the‘ broken line position, and a hook 41 is pro vided -,for holding the ring in this position. The 20 slot 42 ismoved out of registration with the tube || when the ring is in the broken line position, and this "willcut off communication‘ between the tube || arid the interior of the ring. ' ' ' The ring is formed in two sections 48 vand,_49, 25 and Figure‘? illustrates the closed ends 48' and 49’ of these sections.’ The section 49 carries a clip v5i) that is designed to ‘rest uponlthe section 48' and hold the two ends alignment; The section 49 is ro'ckably secured to the tube proper 30 by a joint indicated generally at 5|, and shown in detail in Figures 3 to 6 inclusive. The section 49 has a sleeve 52 that rotatesron an extension 53 carried by the section 48. The sl?eve 52 has a ?ange 54'at its‘free end, and ‘this ?ange rides beneath a hook 55'carried by the section 48. The ?ange 54 has a cut away portion 58, see Figure 4, and a projection '51 is provided adjacent to the cut away portion.‘ > - When the two sections 48 and 49 of the ring 40 are aligned’ with each other as shown in Figure 3‘ ITythe flange 54 is disposed beneath the hook ‘55 and the cut away portion'?fo‘ and projection 51 assume the position shown in Figure 4. 'When it is desired to open the ring to permit a person to step'there-within, the section 49 is'swung away from'the section 48,”and this movement is per 45 mitted by the ‘sleeve 52 riding on'the extension 53 in'a counter-‘clockwise direction when look ing at‘ Figure 4. This will move the projection 57" into ‘contact with the hook 55 and the sec tion 49 will then‘ be held in raised position, as indicated in Figure 6. After the person has entered the‘ ring the section 49 may "be swung in a ‘clockwise direction until the clip'58 ‘again rests on the section 48; ' 55 " “ It is possible to remove the section 49 from the sprung section over 48 'theand section in'doing ‘48,'"'and thisthen the the clip sleeve v5|] 52 is ‘rotated in a clockwise direction ‘when look ing'at Figures 4‘ and'5. This will‘swin‘g thev pro¢ je‘ction 51 until it contacts with vthe opposite side of the hook 55. The hook now registers withithe recess 55 and‘ the sleeve 52 may 'be 'moved longi tudinally along the tubular portion 53 for "re moving the section 59 from the section 48. " ' The ring 4| is provided with a number of small openings ,58 on its inner wall, and Figure 7 shows We openings .59 and 60 provided at the closed ends of the sections 48 and 49. From the Vioregoing description of the various parts of the device, the operation thereof may be readilyv understood. ‘ x " ‘ cover 6| is removed from the container l3‘, see Figure 8, and the marking material is placed 7.0. 3 2,099,943 within the container whereupon the cover is again secured in place. The ring 4| is swung into operative position as shown by the full lines in Figure 1. The section 4| is swung to permit a person to enter the ring, and then the section is closed. The sleeve 4 is raised to the desired position, and this is indicated by the inch mark disposed adjacent to the top of the sleeve, see Figure 10. The set screw 5 is turned to lock the 10 sleeve in adjusted position. The handle 21 of the pump is now reciprocated once, and this will force air through the container, and this air will pick up the marking material, and will convey it into a hollow ring and out through the small 15 openings 58. The openings 59 and 60 will permit free flow of air through the hollow ring sections so that the marking material will be carried throughout the entire‘lengths of the sections, and then ejected through the openings 58 and against the skirt or other garment to be marked. The ring section 49 is now raised to permit the person to walk from the ring. In cases where the skirt does not contact with the ring 4| an auxiliary ring 62, shown in Figure 25 1, may be used. The ring 62 is split and is pro vided with legs 63 that will guide the ring 62 downwardly against the ring 4|. The ring 62 is slipped underneath the skirt, and then is allowed to descend so that the leg 63 will contact with The ring 62 then will force the skirt against the ring 4| for marking purposes. 30 the ring 4|. It is obvious that the ring 62 may be supported by an auxiliary stand not shown, and moved up wardly along the inside of the skirt to move the skirt against the ring 4|. In Figure 2 I show the container I3 attached to the arm 1 by a support 64. The support 64 and the tube II will secure the container to the sleeve 4. While I have shown only the preferred form of 40 my invention, it should be understood that va rious changes or modi?cations may be made within the scope of the appended claims without departing from the spirit of the invention. I claim: 45 1.
