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.
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
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
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
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

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—

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
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.
