Application‘ March 23,1936; Serial No. 70,500 1 Claim. (Cl. 312-48) This invention relates to dispensers for pack- canned goods. The article engaging elements 9 aged or canned supplies and has for the primary and ID are rotatably supported so that the pack number of articles dispensed, besides it will clearly display the kind of articles offered for sale by the device. With these and other objects in view, this invention consists in certain novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more fully described and claimed. For a complete understanding of my invention, reference is to be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, in which Figure l is a front elevation illustrating a dis~ mounted on supporting rods 52 secured to opé posite sides of the housing. The walls H may be adjusted towards and from each other and form sides for superimposed chutes 13. To com _plete the chutes 13 by cooperating with the side walls are inclined bottom walls i4 suitably se— cured to the housing The bottom walls M in_ cline in the direction of the front wall of the housing and the lowermost chute aligns with the discharge opening 6.

Referring in detail to the drawings, the numeral l indicates a suitable housing, the front in the chutes above the lowermost chute from gravitating therefrom.

The article engaging elements 9 and H) are similarly constructed to re. celve therein the ends of either packaged or gate is provided with a notch 20 to be engaged by a, holding lever 2|.when the gate is in article receiving position, as shown in Figure 4. The 2 , 2,124=,500 holding lever is pivotally mounted to the hous- ferred to brie?y herein for the purpose of show ' ing as shown at 22, and is acted upon by a spring ing an operative arrangement for the releasing 23 for forcing one end in a position to engage with the notch. The holding lever when in en- of the holding lever from the notch of the gate. A device of the character described is simple in 5 gagement with said notch will prevent manual movement of the gate into dispensing position. The other end of the holding lever is associated with a coin chute iii, the entrance of which is indicated at 25, and is located in the front wall 10 of the housing. The movement of a coin through ' ' cles and will e?ectively display the kind of arti cles and will occupy a minimum space within a store or like place and its use will materially re duce operating costs of the store in, that purchas- l0 the chute is interrupted by a manually actuated _ ers may easily obtain articles simply by the pay slide 26, one end of which projects beyond the from Wall Of the housing so as to be grasped for the Purpose Of Permitting the coin to pass fully 15 through the chute and at the same time to rock the holding lever to disengage the latter from the notch oi the gate whereby said gate will be ' construction and operation and will provide max- 5 imum storage for either canned or packaged arti ment of a proper coin into the device which re duces the number of salesmen or clerks required for the conducting of the storeand renders max imum convenience to the purchasers as they do 15 not have to wait for the service of a clerk or salesman in order to purchase their wants. free for manual manipulation into dispensing Having described the invention, 1 claim: Position A projection 27 is formed on the gate 1 A dispensing device comprising a housing hav 20 and contacts an actuating member 28 of the counter 5 each time the gate is moved into dispensing position, As soon as the ‘gate is manually released from dispensing position, the spring. l8 returns the same to article receiving position 25 and the holding lever then immediately engages the notch locking the holding gate against movement into dispensing position until the depositins of a coin in the chute and the actuation of the Slide 26- The Slide 26 forms no part of this 30 present invention nor the coin chute and is mere1y indicated generally in the drawings and re- ing a discharge opening, means for controlling 20 said opening, a plurality of superposed parallel chutes, including a, pair of vertically disposed parallel side walls, a plurality of superposed bot-' tom walls disposed between the side walls, a plurality of screw threaded rods passing through 25 said side walls and secured to opposite sides of the housing, for moving the side walls towards and from the bottom walls, and a plurality of nuts threaded on said rods and attached to said side wa11s_ 30 ’ WALDO EDWIN TAYLOR.
