Patented Aug. 16, 1938 2,127,022 UNITED STATES, PATENT OFFICE 2,127,022 THEFTPROOF MILK BOTTLE RECEPTACLE Carl D. Eggebrecht, Bayside, N. Y. Application January 6, 1937, Serial No. 119,185 2 Claims. (Cl. 232-41) One object of this invention is the provision of a receptacle adapted to be mounted adjacent or, as illustrated, quadrants. A ratchet |9a is ro tatably mounted on the post I‘! near the ?oor 2| a door in the wall of a house or apartment, hav ing an opening on one side of its front wall through which milk bottles may be inserted into the receptacle, and another opening through its inside wall through which the bottles may be re moved from the receptacle, with means provided for preventing removal of the bottles from the outside opening after they have once been in serted and positioned within the receptacle. Another object of the invention is the pro vision of a receptacle, the front wall of which is adapted to be mounted ?ush with the outside 15 wall of the apartment, having a semi-cylindrical extension projecting beyond this wall, in which a turnstile is mounted, the turnstile being ro tated through a quadrant upon pushing a bottle from this extension into the receptacle, the turn stile being rotatable in one direction only so that the bottle once inserted in the receptacle cannot be removed through the turnstile. The above and other objects will become ap parent in the description below, in which charac ters of reference refer to like-named parts in the accompanying drawing. Referring briefly to the drawing, Figure l is a front elevational view, illustrating the device mounted in the wall of a dwelling. 30 Figure 2 is a cross-sectional view taken line 2-2 of Figure 1. Figure 3 is a cross-sectional view taken line 3—3 of Figure 2. Figure 4 is a cross-sectional view taken line 4-4 of Figure 3. Figure 5 is a perspective view of the on the on the on the recep tacle per se. Referring in detail to the drawing, the numeral [0 indicates the outer wall of an apartment or dwelling. An opening is provided at the bot tom of the wall for insertion therein of a recep tacle I! having its front wall l2 flush with the outside of the wall Ill and its rear wall l3 lying adjacent the inside of the wall ID in the interior of the apartment, and, if desired, ?ush with the inside wall. A semi-cylindrical projection l4, en closing a vestibule 20, is provided at one end of the wall l2 of the receptacle, and a sliding door l5 having a handle I6 is adapted to open or close an opening into the vestibule 20. A turnstile is vertically mounted in the pro jection M on a pivot post ll. Vertically aligned horizontal prongs I8, extending rigidly from a sleeve l9 rotatable on the post I1, divide the turn 55 stile into a plurality of vertical compartments, of the receptacle II, and a pawl 22 lies in en gagement therewith to permit rotation of the turnstile in one direction only, that is, in a coun ter-clockwise direction, Figures 2 and 4. A plurality of transverse rollers 23 are mounted as a spaced-apart distance above the floor 2|. A platform 24 is mounted at the bottom of the projection M at the same distance above the ?oor 2|. A platform 24 is supported on its outer end on an upright 25, extending rigidly from the‘ floor 2|. The opposite end of the platform 24 is provided with a depending web 26. The web 26 is extended along the front side of the compart ment 2'! within the receptacle, and is elongated over the distance from the left-hand (Figure 2) end of the vestibule 20, to the left-hand end of the compartment 21, to extend from the ?oor 2|. Thus, the entire length of the web 26 serves as 20 a support for one end of each of the rollers 23. The opposite ends of these rollers are supported in an upright strip 28 extending rigidly from the floor 2|. In the rear wall l3 of the receptacle, a hinged door 29 having a handle 30 is pro vided, by means of which the bottles may be re moved from the receptacle within the compart ment. "" The operation of the device is as follows: The door I5 is normally closed, as shown in Figure 5. To insert a bottle into the receptacle, the door I5 is ?rst slid open, a bottle is inserted into the vestibule 20 and pushed inward toward the re ceptacle. The bottle will then lie within the up per right-hand quadrant of the turnstile, Figure 2. If now a second bottle is inserted, the turn 5 stile will carry the ?rst bottle, ?rst toward the rear wall of the receptacle, and thence, from left to right along the compartment 21, riding on the rollers 23. In this manner a large number of bottles may be inserted into the receptacle. To us 0 prevent an inserted bottle from being carried back into the vestibule 20 by continued rotation of the tunstile, a series of rigid check prongs 3| are mounted on the inside of the wall I2 and project into the spaces between the orbits of the turnstile prongs l8. It is impossible for the bottles to be removed from the outside of the wall I0 through the projection l4, because of the above-mentioned locking of the turnstile against rotation in the opposite direction. It is thus apparent that a theft-proof receptacle has been provided which is a guarantee against removal of the bottles by unauthorized persons. Obviously, modi?cations in form and struc 55 2,127,022 2 ture may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention. I claim: tangular housing adapted to be mounted in a wall of a building, a turnstile mounted in one end of the front wall of said housing, an opening in housing a semi-cylindrical projection extending said housing into said turnstile, rollers mounted transversely adjacent the ?oor of the receptacle, means cooperating with said turnstile to permit rotation thereof in one direction and to- prevent stile on the same level as said rollers, and prongs said housing and projecting substantially parallel 1. A receptacle comprising‘ a housing adapted to be mounted in a wall of a building, the front wall of said housing having at one end of said outward therefrom, a turnstile mounted in said rotation in the opposite direction, a platform _ projection, a door in said projection, rollers mounted adjacent the bottom of said housing on mounted transversely adjacent the floor of the ' the same level as said rollers on one side of said 10 receptacle, means cooperating with said turnstile turnstile, and means mounted between said re to permit rotation thereof in one direction and ceptacle and said projection for guiding a bot-c to prevent rotation in the opposite direction, a tle which has been inserted into the receptacle platform mounted adjacent the bottom of said away from said turnstile, said means compris inf prongs secured at one end to the front wall of 15 projection under the forward end of said turn on said front wall and projecting substantially parallel therewith into the orbit of said turnstile. 2. A receptacle comprising a substantially rec with said front wall into the orbit of said turn stile. CARL D. EGGEBRECI-IT.
