FUNNEL

opening, the legs will bear against the head of
the drum at the points ll and I2 and they will
funnels and more especially to a novel funnel for
act to keep the lug 8 in engagement with the
refilling barrels or drums.
One of the objects of the invention is to pro- flange ring. Hence even though the hopper is
ñlled with relatively heavy liquid, the funnel
vide a funnel which may be attached to a barrel
This invention relates to improvements in
‘ lying on its side with the spout of the funnel
extending into an opening in the head of the
barrel.
Another object is to supply a funnel of this
character which may be temporarily secured to
the head of the barrel by simply inserting the
spout of the funnel into the barrel opening and
allowing a lug or projection on the funnel spout
to interlock with the flange ring of the barrel
head.
A further object is to provide a funnel for
filling or re-ñlling barrelsv that will allow the
ready escape of air fromthe barrel to facilitate
rapid filling or re-ñlling.
A still further object is to supply a funnel of
2 O this kind which is of simple, inexpensive con
struction and one which will be very durable
in service.
With the foregoing objects outlined and with
2
other objects in View which will appear as the
description proceeds, the inventionV consists in
the novel features hereinafter described in de
tail in connection with the accompanying draw
ing and more particularly pointed out in the
appended claims.
3O
In the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a side elevation of the improved funnel
shown attached to a barrel that is illustrated
in vertical section.
Fig. 2 is another elevation of the funnel taken
35 at right angles to the View of Fig. 1.
Referring to the drawing, 3 designates a con
ventional barrel or drum provided with a head 4.
The head has the usual ñange ring 5 surrounding
the opening through which liquid is introduced
40 into the drum.
My improved funnel is preferably formed of
metal and it comprises a hopper 6 having a later
ally extending spout 1 at its lower end that is
adapted to be inserted through the opening i
the head of the drum.
.
A lug or projection 8 extends downwardly
from the bottom portion of the spout and is de~
signed to contact the lower edge portion of the
flange ring when the spout is introduced into
50
the opening.
Resilient legs 9 have their upper end portions
secured to the hopper as indicated at I0, and
these legs are preferably of bow shape. Conse
quently when the spout is introduced into the
55
will remain in position without liability of tip
ping. Furthermore, as the spout is of smaller
external diameter than the internal diameter
of the flange ring, a substantially annular pas
sageway will be provided between the spout and
ring to allow rapid discharge of air from the
barrel during filling.
From the foregoing it is believed that the con
struction, operation, and advantages of the im
proved funnel may be readily understood by those
familiar with such devices, and while I have dis~
closed what I now consider to be a preferred em
bodiment of the invention, I appreciate that
changes may be made in the details disclosed
without departing from the spirit of the inven
20
tion as expressed in the claims.
What I claim and desire to secure by Letters
Patent is:
1. A funnel of the character described, com
prising a hopper having a laterally extending 25
discharge spout at its lower end portion, lug
means arranged on the exteriorof said spout
and adapted to engage the wall of an opening
through which the spout is inserted, and resilient
means operatively connected to the hopper and 30
adapted to engage said wall for maintaining the
lug in engagement with said wall, said resilient
means including legs secured to the hopper and
extending downwardly below said spout.
2. A funnel of the character described, com 35
prising a hopper having a laterally extending
discharge spout at its lower end portion, lug
means arranged on the exterior of said spout
and adapted to engage the wall of an opening
through which the spout is inserted, and resilient 40
means operatively connected to the hopper and
adapted to engage said wall for maintaining the
lug in engagement with said wall, said` lug means
projecting downwardly from the bottom of the
spout, and said resilient means consisting of bow
shaped legs having their upper ends secured to
the hopper, said legs extending downwardly be»
low the spout and straddling the latter.
3. A funnel adapted for filling a barrel or the
like lying on its side comprising a hopper having 50
a laterally extending discharge spout at its lower
end to be inserted in an opening in the head of
the barrel, a lug extending downwardly from the
bottom of the spout and adapted to engage the
interior of the head of the barrel below said 55

opening, and bow shaped resilient legs having
their upper ends secured to the hopper, said legs
extending downwardly below the spout and their
extremities being adapted to engage the exterior
Cl of the barrel head below said opening.
4. A funnel of the character described, com
prising a hopper having a laterally extending dis
charge spout at its lower end portion adapted to
extend into the opening of the head of a re
cumbent barrel or the like, lug means arranged
on the exterior of said spout and adapted to
engage the wall of an opening through which the
spout is inserted, and legs extending downwardly
below said spout and having their upper end
operatively secured to the hopper, said legs being
adapted to engage the head of the barrel.
