Filed Aug. 28, 1935 137.35 25' 73 25 INVENTOR MEYER KAMENSTEFQ WM 01;” ATTOIIRNEY ' Patented June 14, 1938 2,120,520 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,120,520 GARBAGE AND WASTE CAN ' Meyer Kamenstein, Brooklyn, N. Y. Application August 28, 1935, Serial No. 38,176 7 Claims. (Cl. 220-69) The invention relates in general to metallic receptacle ID in the instant case showing the open receptacles such as open top and bottom con tainers for garbage and other waste cans and the present disclosure constitutes a development of 5 the step can disclosed in Patent No. 1,837,221 of December 22, 1931. The invention relates par ticularly to the wire reinforced bead at the bot tom edges of the containers, and the invention speci?cally relates to combined wire formed legs bottom can or container for receiving the usual garbage can (not shown). The lower edge II of the upstanding cylindrical wall I2 is bent back upon itself to form an edge reinforcement bead 13. The outer side 14 of the bead I3 is cut away to provide a plurality, one for each leg, of pairs of openings l5 and Hi. The openings forming each pair are positioned relatively close together compared to the distance that the pairs of open ings are spaced from each other. This forms a series of long beads 11 between the short, hol 10 and bead wires and means for attaching the same to the bead at the lower edge of the cylindrical or other tubular forms of such containers. The primary object of the invention is to pro ' low, tubular beads I8 de?ning the inner ends of vide an improved form of receptacle or container the openings I5 and I6. I 15 of the type outlined and particularly to improve There is provided a plurality of wire legs l9‘, one the bead wire construction and associated parts. Another object of the invention particularly relating to the bead wire construction at the bot tom of the receptacle is to provide a simpli?ed legs are each of bifurcated form comprising sub stantially parallel sides 20 and 2| connected at their lower ends by a crotch 22 which, as shown 20 form of wire legs which can be bent from scrap in Fig. 1, is bent outwardly out of the plane of lengths of wire to form one or more supporting legs secured to the can in such way as will tend the parallel sides 20 and 2| to form wide spread ing feet 23. At the upper end of each leg, the sides 20 and 2! are bent outwardly, that is away from each other to form wings 24 and 25. These to reinforce and thus make rugged its lower edge while additionally functioning as known forms ' of bead wires. Broadly this aspect of the invention is attained by bending a length of wire back upon itself one or more times to form either a single bifurcated leg or a plurality of tied together legs, all formed 30 from a single length of wire and which is bent at its free end in the case of the single leg, or in the case of two or more legs is bent to form a con necting tie wire, which ends of tie wire are con tained in the bead formed integrally at the bot 35 tom of the can or receptacle, thus to secure the leg or legs in position and at the same time pro vide a wired, beaded, reinforcement to the bot tom of the can. Various other objects and advantages of the 40 invention will be in part obvious from an inspec tion of the accompanying drawing and in part will be more fully set forth in the following par These wings are intruded into the adjacent ends ' of the long beads l1‘ and are secured in place by being clamped within the long beads. In those cases where there is available a suflicient length of wire as is the case in the showing in Fig. 1, the wire is bent at two spaced apart points to form the pair of legs illustrated and these legs are connected by the length of wire therebetween forming the combined tie and bead wire 26. It is obviously within the scope of the disclosure to form all of the legs from a single length of wire and the free ends of the wire may be secured to gether to form the reinforcing ring within the bead and completely encircling the lower edge of the can. By means of a device of this character, it is 4.0 possible to form rugged wire legs depending from the can and which are securely fastened to the ticular description of one form of the device em can at their upper ends and at the same time bodying the invention, and the invention also the bead at the lower edge of the can is partly or 45 consists in certain new and novel features of con struction and combination of parts hereinafter set forth and claimed. In the accompanying drawing: Fig. 1 is a view in side elevation of a garbage 50 can illustrating a preferred embodiment of the invention; and Fig. 2 is a front elevational view of the leg forming wire, attached to the can edge as shown 55 for each pair of interruptions of the bead. in Fig. 1. Referring to the drawing there is disclosed a completely reinforced by the upper out-turned 45 ends of the leg and as herein suggested the ad jacent legs may even be tied together by the bead wire in pairs or altogether where only one length ‘of wire is used. ‘ The receptacle I0 is provided at its upper end 50 with a hinged closure 21. The upper edge of the receptacle I0 is bent back upon itself to form a bead 28 and in this bead is contained an endless bead wire 29. The bead is interrupted at the rear portion of the can to form an opening 30 with a 55 2 2,120,520 portion of the wire 29 bridged across the opening and forming a hinge pin. Secured to the cover ings and contained in the bead to form a rein forcement for the portion of the bead containing 21 is a length of rigid material forming a com the same. bined actuating lever and hinge strap 32. The portion of the plate outwardly of the hinge con nection forms a rearwardly extending lever 31. Directly below the lever 31 is located the up— 3. A can having one portion of its lower edge bent back upon itself to form three beads circum standing lever arm 39 of a rocking shaft 40 which extends diametrically beneath the recep 10 tacle ID. The shaft 43 is journalled adjacent its opposite ends in supplemental legs 4| and 42 which function additionally to provide two sup ports for the receptacle [0 in addition to the legs l9 and these two legs are disposed to transmit 15 to the ground, floor, or other support, strains which may be imposed thereon by the operator in the act of lifting or closing-the closure 2'1. In the illustrated instance the legs 40~and 42 are formed at the ends of a bent strip of ?at material 20 having inturned feet 43 and secured at their upper portions to the wall 12 in the region rein forced by the lower bead and its associated bead wire. The lever 39 terminates in a hooked end 44 and a rigid reach rod 45 extends between and is 25 pivotally connected at its opposite end with the levers 31 and 39. It is herein suggested that the upper ends of the legs 4| and 42 be connected by the strap 48 which tends to reinforce the open bottom of the receptacle. The forward end of the shaft 40 is provided with a pedal 46 for rotating shaft 40 to elevate closure 21. While there have been shown, described, and pointed out in the annexed claims, certain novel 35 features of the invention, it will be understood that various omissions, substitutions and changes in the form and details of the device illustrated and in its operation may be made by those skilled in the art without departing from the spirit of 40 the invention.
