12 claims. (Cl. 65-61)
My invention relates to improvements in means
vention is adapted for receiving containers made
for receiving a can or container and dispensing or
of other materials.
The body 10 is preferably of-a size large enough
fpr loosely receiving the can [3, and, as shown in
Fig. 2, the bottom l8 thereof is formed with a
reentrant central portion IQ for receiving and
seating the recessed end I l of the can It. The
interior groove 20 in the bottom‘ It surrounding
serving the contents thereof, and the same has
for its object to provide a simple, reliable and
e?icient device which serves as a cutting or tap
ping means for the container or can and as an en
closure therefor of~ sightly or pleasing ap
pearance.
Further, said invention has for its object to
provide a device of the character speci?ed in
which the container or can may be placed therein
and opened thereby without causing the contents
of the container to be spilled or slopped out.
Further, said invention has for its object to pro

Other objects will in part be obvious and in part
30 be pointed out hereinafter.
To the attainment of the aforesaid objects and
ends my invention consists in the novel features
of construction, and in the combination, connec~
tion and arrangement of parts hereinafter more
fully described and then pointed out in the claims.
In the accompanying drawing:

Fig. 5 is a cross-section illustrating a device
with a modi?ed form of body.
Referring to the drawing, the device comprising
a body or receptacle I0 having a spout H at one
side thereof and a handle I2 at the opposite side
thereof. The, body I!) is adapted to receive the
can or container it having a liquid commodity It
therein, such as beer, carbonated beverages, fruit
juices or the like.
The can I3 is usually con
structed with the beaded ends l5 forming the
joints between the can body and the heads or
ends l6 and providing outward recesses I‘! at the
ends of the can. Cans are usually made of tin
60
the reentrant portion It forms a sump for re
plate‘ although the device embodying the in-'
horizontal tongue portion 23 extending beyond
the body it above the mouth of the spout it.
A channel member 2'6 is welded or otherwise
secured at the ?ange edges to the bottom of the 30
cover 26 and the tongue portion 26 thereof to
form with the cover 241 and the projecting
tongue portion 26 a conduit 28 having the dis
charge end or nozzle 2t extending into the spout
it below the upper edge till thereof. The ?ange 35
25 of the cover is preferably cut away as indi
cated at hi to allow the channel member 2t’ ‘to
clear the same. The upper portion of the body
it at the spout M is also cut away, as indicated
at st, to provide clearance for the channel mem~ 40
ber M where it projects into the spout i i,
In forming the spout M, the body it at the
I clearance 32 is bent outwardly to form ears 3% be
tween which the cover ‘2% is mounted for pivotal
movement by means of the rivets 3t passing 45
through the outer ends of the sides of the channel
member 2‘! and the ears 33‘. ‘The spout ii is
preferably made of a separate piece welded or
otherwise secured to the outside of the cars 33
and the contiguous surface of the body ill and
serving to conceal the pivot members or rivets 3%.
A can cutting or rupturing element 35 in the,
form of a tapered blade having a piercing point 36
and diverging cutting edges 31 projects down
wardly and inwardly with a slight curve from the 55
base or lower wall portion 38 of the channel mem
ber 21 at a point contiguous to the margin of the
can l3 in the closed position of the cover 213.
The base 38 is provided with an inlet opening 39
located in advance of the base of the blade 35.. 60
2
2,110,097
The blade 35 constitutes an apron depending from
35, through the opening 39 for discharge from the
the opening 39 at the end thereof towards the
discharge outlet 29. When the cover is closed
the opening 39 registers with the opening 49
nozzle 29 over the margin 39 of the spout H.
formed in the can l3 by- the cutter 35.
The
cutter 35 is preferably formed integrally with the
base portion 38 by striking out the material from
the plane of said base portion, leaving the opening
39 of corresponding shape.
10
'
The opening 39 has the opposite margins there
of adjacent to the depending cutter 35 bent out
wardly to form depending ?anges 4| adapted,
when the cover is closed, to engage the yieldable
head iii of the can I3 at opposite sides of the
15 opening 40 formed therein by the cutter to con
?ne the ?ow of the liquid contents to a path over
said apron 35 and through said opening 39 and
minimize the escape of liquid at opposite sides
of the opening 40 over the top of the can I 3 and
20 into the interior of the receptacle Ill.
When it is desired to serve the contents of a
can or container, the can is placed in the device
duly centered therein, and the cover 24 is then
closed by ‘exerting pressure thereon at the side
25 remote from the hinge_33. The leverage thus
aiforded causes the cutter 35 to penetrate the
top of the can at‘ an intermediate point thereon
and to shear a portion thereof out to form the
opening 40 of a shape conforming to that of the
30 cutter, the opening formed being ‘of substantial
width at the base thereof near the can margin
and tapering in width towards the center of the
'
I have found that the liquid in being poured
tends to follow a path con?ned to said apron 35,
the liquid, apparently, having an af?nity for said
apron and being directively guided thereby. The
phenomenon is possibly due to surface tension,
capillary, molecular or other physical effect, al
though I do not desire to be bound by any theory
as to the mode of operation. It sumces that the 10
member 35 insures an effective transfer of the
liquid contents from the can to the passage 29
across the intervening gap between the top of the
can and the base of the channel member 2'|_with
out. appreciable ?ow of liquid over paths into the 15
interior of the device III.
In the present invention, the spout H serves
primarily as a trap for liquid ejected during the
opening operation. It also preferably serves as
means for pivotally supporting the cover with the 20
projecting nozzle portion 29 of the channel mem
ber housed therein to provide a structure su?l
ciently strong to function as a can opener while
retaining a neat appearance when in use for
serving.
