COLLAPSIBLE TUBE HOLDER.
Warren C'. Craig, Little Rock, Ark.
Application July 19, 1937, Serial No. 154,489
1 Claim. , (Cl. 221-60‘)
The invention relates to a collapsible tube
holder and more especially to a dispensing cabi
net for paste tubes.
- The primary object of the invention is the
5 provision of a cabinet of this character, where
ing diagrammatically two paste tubes or con
tainers held therein.

of Figure 1 looking in the direction of the arrows.

contained within collapsible or soft metal tubes
Figure 4 is a sectional View on the line ll-ll
or containers so as to avoid waste of the ma
of Figure 1 looking in the direction of the arrows.
Similar reference characters indicate corre- 10
10 terials to be dispensed and will accommodate
varying sizes of tubes or containers.
Another object of the invention is the provi
sion of a cabinet of this character, wherein the
collapsible tubes or containers are held in a man
15 ner for the dispensing of the contents thereof,
the cabinet being of novel construction and is
equipped with swinging valves, manually oper
ated for opening and closing the said tubes or
containers, the cabinet being of novel construc
20 tion in its entirety.
\
A further object of the invention is the provi
sion of a cabinet of this character, wherein the
collapsible tubes or containers are held within
compartments which are independent or sepa
25 rated from each other` and have their discharge
ends socketed in the cabinet at the bottom there
of for the convenient dispensing of the contents
of the tubes or containers and these ends are
closed by valves, thereby eliminating the usual
30 screw caps for the ends of the tubes or containers
and in the use of the valves it eliminates the mis
placing of the caps as well as avoiding messy
tubes or containers as well as the waste of the
contents thereof in the dispensing of the same,
permitting the dispensing of such contents in a
ready and easy manner either upon a brush or
on the linger of a user.
A still further object of the invention is the
provision of a cabinet of this character, which
is simple in its construction, thoroughly reliable
and efficient in operation, susceptible of being
hung upon a support or wall, readily and easily
operated, neat in appearance and inexpensive to
45 manufacture.
With these and other objects in View, the in
vention consists in the features of construction,
combination and arrangement of parts as will
be hereinafter more fully described, illustrated
50 in the accompanying drawing, which discloses
the preferred embodiment of the invention and
pointed out in the claim hereunto appended.
In the accompanying drawing:
Figure 1 is an eleva-tion of the cabinet >con
55 structed in accordance with the invention show
sponding parts throughout the several views in
the drawing.
Referring to the drawing in detail, A designates
generally a cabinet constructed in accordance
with the invention and involves a housing or cas- 15
ing body formed with a back plate 5 from which
forwardly extends a columnar body 6 of sheet
metal closed at its bottom "I, sides 8 and having
a vertically slotted front 9 while the top of this
body is open at I_Il, respectively.
The slots II 2O
in the front 9 extend vertically of the body 6 for
the major extent thereof and within this body
centrally of the same is a vertical partition I2
separating the body into vertical columnar mag
azines or chambers I3 for accommodating there- 25
in collapsible tubes or containers I4 for tooth
pastes, shaving cream, soaps or the like.
Each
of the tubes or containers Ill is of conventional
construction having as usual the externally
threaded dispensing nozzle or nipple end I5 which 30
is accommodated within a hole or opening I6
provided in the bottom 1, one for each magazine
or chamber I3 so that this nozzle or nipple will
protrude below the bottom 'l when held within
the cabinet A for service.
35
Formed on the sides- 8 exteriorly of the body 6
are loop-like toothbrush holders I'I for releasably
accommodating toothbrushes I8 when not in use.
Fitting the chambers or spaces I3 are external
peripherally knurled squeezing rollers I8’ which 40
are adapted to roll within the said magazines
or spaces I3 vertically and ride upon the tubes
or containers I4 therein for compressing or col
lapsing the same when manually turned, the said
rollers I8' being accessible for operation through 45
the slots II in the front 9 of the body 6 and the
knurled peripheral surfaces IS of these rollers
avoid any possibility of the slipping of the fingers
of an operator upon said rollers when actuating
the same through the said slots I_I.
50
The action of the rollers I8’ causing the col
lapsing of the tubes Ill effects the» dispensing of
the contents of the said tubes or containers
through the nozzle or nipple ends I5.
Arranged in vertically disposed pintle sleeves 55

2,118,725
20 formed externally of the body 6 on the sides
8 next to the back plate 5 are the upstanding
turning pintles 2| of elbow arms 22 having guide
eyes 23 in which are slidab‘ly fitted stems 24 of
disk-like closure valves 25 for the nozzle or nip
ple ends I5 tapped in and projected through
the holes or openings I6 in the bottom 'I of the
body 6. Surroundingr the stems 24 of the valves
25 and seated upon the eyes 23 are coiled ten
1,0 sioning springs 26. These springs 26 urge the
valves 25 in seating relation to the nipples or
nozzles I5 when axially aligned therewith, the
stems 24 at the outermost or lower ends thereof
being formed with externally knurled finger
15 gripping knobs or terminal heads 21 so that said
valves 25 can be manually unseated from the
nipples or nozzles I5 and through the arms 22
The rollers I8’ when manually operated travel
the length of the tubes or containers I4 and
effect the collapsing or compressing thereof for
the dispensing of the contents of the same when
active. The back plate 5 has formed therein
key hole shaped slots 28 for the engagement of
the cabinet upon fasteners for securing it upon
a support or wall, the fasteners being not shown
and are received in the slots 28.
10
What is claimed is:
The combination with a body forming a mag
azine for a coll-apsible tube and having a perfo
rated end accommodating a discharge nipple of
said tube, of a pintle sleeve formed exteriorly
on the body at one side thereof, a pintle arm 15
rotatably fitting said sleeve and having an eye
extension at substantially right angles thereto,
swîngingly supporting the said valves 25 turned
a disk-like closure valve engageable with the
arcuately in a lateral direction away from the
20 nipples or nozzles I5 for the opening of the said
tubes or containers I4 and through the action
of the rollers I8' the contents thereof may be
tube discharge nipple exteriorly of the body and
dispensed therefrom. These valves 25 normally
close the tubes or containers I4 at the nozzle or
25 nipple ends I5, the closing position of the said
valves being shown in Figures 1, 2 and 3 of the
drawing by full lines while by dotted lines one
of the valves is shown in open position in Fig
ure 3.
having a stem slid-ably fitting the eye extension, 20
a coiled tensioning spring about the stem and
seated against the eye extension and the said
valve for holding the latter against the said nipple
on the turning of the eye extension in one direc
tion, and a knurled head formed on the stem and 25
depending with relation to the eye extension.
