TOOTH POWDER CONTAINER
Charles S. Gringler, Cleveland, Ohio
Application May 12, 1937, Serial No. 142,298
2 Claims. (Cl. 221-—112)
This invention relates to new and useful im
provements in tooth powder containers.
One object of my invention is to provide a con
tainer of the character speci?ed that will release
5 just the proper amount of powder, at each oper
ation, for cleaning the teeth.
A further object of my invention is to provide a
tooth powder container, in which provision is
made for depositing the correct amount of pow
der for cleaning the teeth, directly on the tooth
brush, and without spilling any of the powder,
as distinguished from the unsatisfactory meth
ods now commonly employed of ?rst emptying a
quantity of powder in one hand and placing it on
15 the tooth brush with the other hand.
With the foregoing and other objects in view
that will appear as the nature of my invention
is better understood, the same consists in the
novel features of construction, combination and
20 arrangement of parts illustrated in the accom
panying drawing and more particularly pointed
out in the appended claims.
In the accompanying drawing, which is for
illustrative purposes only and is therefore not
25
drawn to scale:
'
Figure l is a side elevation, partly in section,
of a tooth powder container constructed in ac
cordance with my invention.
Figure 2 is a vertical transverse section, taken
on line 2-2 of Figure 1.
30
Figure 3 is a horizontal section, taken on line
3—-3 of Figure 2.
Figure ii is a rear elevation, partly in section,
of a tooth powder container of the stationary
or wall type, and Figure 5 is a vertical transverse
section, taken on line 5-5 of Figure 4, looking
in the direction indicated by the arrows.
Referring to the drawing for a more particular
description of my invention, and in which draw
ing like parts are designated by like reference
characters throughout the several views, the nu
meral i represents the cylindrical body of the
container and 2 the cover or lid.
'In carrying out‘ my invention, the lid 2 is
formed on its outer face with a central longi
tudinally disposed neck 3, of substantially hollow
elliptical form in cross section, divided by the
straight ?at horizontal wall or partition 4, into
the upper powder compartment 5 and the lower
50 larger tooth brush receiving compartment 6.
The partition 4 is formed at one side with an
elongated longitudinal slot or opening ‘I, nor
mally covered by the ?at strip or shuttle 8. The
strip orshuttle 8 is formed at its inner end with
55 a transverse sliding arm 9, which works against
the inner face of the lid 2. The arm 9 is
equipped with a suitable handle or knob Ill for
the convenience of the operator, and the stem ll
of this knob works in a corresponding slot l2
in the lid. The inner end of the arm 9 is pro
vided with a cover plate l9, adapted to close an
opening it in the lid 2, which communicates
with the inner end of the powder compartment
5. The cover plate is works in a rectangular
housing l5, secured to the inner wall or face of
the lid and formed with an opening it disposed
in registration with the opening l4 aforesaid.
The compartment 6 is open at its outer end, as
at ll, to receive the head of the tooth brush.
In practice, the head of the tooth brush is ?rst
inserted in the compartment 6, and the shuttle
8 is then shifted on the partition 4 to uncover the 15
slot or opening ‘l. This operation releases just
the proper amount of powder for cleaning the
teeth, on the brush. When the shuttle 8 is
shifted to the right to uncover the slot or open
ing 7, the cover plate l3 simultaneously covers 20
the openings I4 and I6.
In the stationary form of my invention illus
trated in Figures 4 .and 5 of the drawing, the con
tainer is mounted in a cylindrical housing It,
fastened by screws It or other equivalent means, 25
to the wall or other support. In this instance,
the slot 29 in the upper wall 2i of the brush com
partment 22, is normally closed by the shuttle 23,
equipped With the operating handle 24.
From the foregoing description, taken in con—
nection with the drawing, it is thought that the
construction, operation and advantages of my
invention will be readily understood, without re
quiring a more extended explanation.
Having described my invention, what I claim 35
as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:
1. In .a tooth powder container of the charac
ter speci?ed, a body, a lid for the body and a
hollow neck carried by the lid, said neck formed
with a longitudinally disposed slotted partition
whereby it is divided into an upper powder com.
partment and a lower brush receiving compart
ment and a manually operated shuttle for open
ing and closing the slot in said partition, sub
stantially as and for the purpose speci?ed.
2. In a tooth powder container of the charac
ter speci?ed, a body, a lid for the body and. a
hollow elongated neck carried by the lid, said
neck divided into an upper powder compartment
and a lower brush receiving compartment by a 60
longitudinally disposed slotted partition, and a
manually operated shuttle for opening and clos
ing the slot in said partition and simultaneously
closing and opening the inner end of the powder
compartment.
