Y. Application September 28, 1936, Serial No. 103,041 3 Claims. (Cl. SI12-90) This invention appertains to new and useful improvements in an apparatus for conveniently dispensing hairpins. The principal object of the present invention 5 is to provide a hairpin dispenser which will be desirable for use in hair dressing shops where at present the customer is imposed upon to hold hairpins and hand the same to the operator when called for. 10 ’ Another important object of the present inven tion is to provide a hairpin dispenser which can be conveniently operated by the foot of the beauty operator whereby hairpins can be delivered to herself singly without additional manual assist 15 ance. These and various other important objects and advantages of the invention will become appar ent to the reader of the following specification. In the drawings: Figure 1 represents a side elevational view of 20 the apparatus supported by a wall hanger. Figure 2 is a fragmentary front elevational View of the apparatus. Figure 3 is an enlarged horizontal sectional view taken substantially on line 3-3 of Figure 2. 25 Figure 4 is an enlarged fragmentary vertical sectional view through the hopper. Figure 5 is a fragmentary horizontal sectional view taken substantially on line 5-5 of Figure 4. Figure 6 is a fragmentary top plan View of the 30 hopper showing the fastening means for the re movable side wall. Referring to Figure l, it can be seen that the numeral Il denotes a small tray having an up» standing back wall I8 on which the permanent magnet I9 is located. An arm 20 pivotally se cured to one side of the hopper 5 supports this tray Il which is magnetized, the hairpin resting between magnet i9 and tray Il which is magne tized to prevent the hairpin from falling. Nu meral 2| represents an elongated substantially semi-circular shaped arm, the upper end of which l0 is provided with the yoke 22 in which the tray Il is pivotally mounted the lower end of said arm being pivotally secured as at 23 between the ears 24 on the hopper 5. This semi-circular arm 2| is provided with the depending arm 25 whichdis con 15 nected by the pivotal link 26 to the arm 21 the latter being pivoted intermediate its ends, as at 21a, to a bracket 2lb extending from the hopper 5. Numeral 28 represents a treadle which is sup ported by the elongated control rod 29, the same 20 being slidable through the guides 3U and 32 on one side of the hopper 5. An arm 3| extends from the upper portion of the elongated rod 29 and is operatively connected as at 32 to the upper end of the push arm 33 which terminates in the head 25 34 slidable through an opening 34a in the lower portion of the hopper to engage the fingers 8 on the feed wheel S. An operating connection is provided between the rod 29 and the link member 2'.' in the form of 30 an arm 35 extending from said rod 29 and over lying the inner end of the link member as shown Figure 7 is a fragmentary perspective View of ' in Figure 7 of the drawings. An elongated coil spring 35 extends from the arm 23 to the pivotal operating connections presently described in de connection 31 between the arm 25 and link 35 35 tail. Referring to the drawings, wherein like nu« and from said connection 31 the coil spring 38 merals designate like parts, it can be seen that extends to the pivot 21a of the arm 2l. It can now be seen that in the operation, down numeral 5 represents an elongated vertically dis posed hopper, preferably square in cross-section. ward movement of the rod 29 by a person’s foot This hopper is open at its top and provided with on the treadle 28 causes the semi-circular shaped 40 4 the bottom wall 6 which is cut away as at l to arm 2| to be swung upwardly bringing the magnet I9 over the hopper 5, while at the same time the expose some of the fingers 8 of the feed wheel 9 which has a `threaded bore therethrough for push rod 33 causes its head 24 to press against receiving the screw shaft I0 which supports the one of the fingers 8 of the wheel S so as to rotate the wheel suificiently to cause a slight upward 45 45 follower II at its upper end. This follower sup ports a quantity of hairpins thereon and access movement of the shaft lil and the follower I I, the follower Ii pushing the quantity of hairpins can be gained to the same and the hairpins there on by the movable side wall I2 which is hinged thereon upwardly a slight distance. The tray I1 at its lower end .as at I3 to the said bottom wall is constructed to pivot by gravity when off the support 28, so that it is not interposed between 50 50 6. The bottom wall 6 is provided with the up standing barrel I4 to guide the screw shaft, while said magnet and the contents of the hopper 5. the sub-bottom wall I5 between which and the bottom wall 6 the wheel 9 is operative, has the depending guide barrel I6 through which the 55 screw shaft I0 extends. Upon release of the treadle 28, the mechanism will resume its position shown in Figure 1, the hair pins probably dropping off onto the tray Il, where it can be easily reached by the beauty shop opera 55 2 2,105,811 tor. The tendency of the push rod 33 is to nor mally align itself with the arm 3| but said rod 33 is sufñciently resilient to permit lateral iiexing thereof by the fingers 8 of the wheel 9 such as is required for rotation of said wheel by said rod and the opening 34a, is suiiìciently large to permit such flexing. If desired, a suitable wall plate, especially one of tapered design, can be secured to a wall 39 and 10 a wedge-shaped socket structure 4G on one side of the hopper 5 can be engaged with such a wall plate for supporting the apparatus in the manner substantially shown in Figure 1. Suitable spring fasteners 4l can be employed 15 on the upper end of the hopper so as to engage the hinged side walls I2 and retain the same in closed position as shown in Figure 4. While the foregoing specification sets forth the invention in specific terms, it is to be understood that Various changes in the shape, size, and ma terials may be resorted to without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed hereinafter. Having described the invention, what is claimed as new is: 1. A dispenser for hairpins comprising, a hop per, a feed screw extending upwardly into said hopper, a follower on the upper end of said screw operative by said screw to elevate the contents of 30 the hopper, a toothed wheel at the bottom of the hopper threaded onto said screw and operative to elevate the same, a magnet swingably mount ed at one side of the hopper for movement over the same to attract the contents therefrom, and means for swinging said magnet and operating said wheel including a foot pedal. 2. A dispenser for hairpins, comprising, a, hop per, a feed screw extending upwardly into said hopper, a follower on the upper end of said screw operative by said screw to elevate the contents of the hopper, a toothed wheel at the bottom of the 10 hopper threaded onto said screw and operative to elevate the same, a magnet swingably mounted at one side of the hopper for movement over the same to attract the contents therefrom and ten sioned against such movement, and means for 15 swinging said magnet and operating said wheel including a foot pedal. 3. A dispenser for hairpins comprising a hop per, a feed screw extending upwardly into said hopper, a follower on the upper end of said screw 20 operative by said screw to elevate the contents of said hopper, a toothed wheel at the bottom of the hopper threaded onto said screw and opera tive to elevate the same, a tray swingably mount ed at one side of the hopper for movement into 25 a position over said hopper, a magnet on said tray for attracting the contents of the hopper, and means for swinging said tray and. operating said wheel.
