DISPENSING CONTAINER
Alfred J. Chamberlain, Wauwatosa, Wis.
Application June 28, 1937, Serial No. 150,709
6 Claims.
This invention relates to an improvement in
dispensing ñttings for liquid containers and gen
erally aims to provide a fitting of this character
which is self-venting and also embodies the fea
5 ture of a disappearing spout.
Another object of the invention is to provide a
dispensing fitting of this character which is sim
ple and durable in its construction, coinpactly
organized, reliable and eflici-ent in use, easily
il) manipulated, and easy and comparatively inex
pensive to manufacture.
.
Another important object of the invention is to
so construct and organize the nozzle and spout
as to insure the effective operation of the scif
“ venting feature in actual practice.
Other objects `and advantages reside in certainnovel features of the construction, arrangement
and combination of parts which will be herein
after more fully described and particularly
(Cl. 221-11)
as indicated at I'I with the margin of the open
ing in the top II of the container.
A removable closure cap I8 of any suitable
construction is provided for the nozzle I2.
A disappearing spout designated generally at el.
29 is hingedly connected as at 2| to the outlet
ñtting adjacent one end thereof so that the spout
may hang downwardly in the can as illustrated
in Figure 2 to permit of application of the closure
cap I8, or may be swung upwardly and outwardly
to the pouring position shown in Figure 1 when
cap I 8 is removed. The spout 29 is generally
U-shaped in horizontal cross section as» will be
understood from the drawing, particularly Figure
3, and is made up of side walls or wings 22 15
disposed in spaced parallel relation and connected
transversely at their forward ends by the curved
20 pointed out in the appended claims, reference
end portion 23 of the spout. The spout is so
shaped in vertical cross section that its side wings
22 and curved forward end wall 23 all have a
being had to the accompanying drawing forming
vertical portion 24 designed to snugly fit against
a part of this specification and in` which:
Fig. 1 is a fragmentary View in central vertical
longitudinal section illustrating a portion of a
25 top of a container equipped with a dispensing
ñtting embodying the invention and showing the
spout in its extended or operative position;
Figure 2 is a View similar to Figure 1 but

30 inside the container in its inoperative» position
and showing a closure cap applied to the outlet
fitting;
Figure 3 is a, fragmentary view illustrating the
dispensing fitting in top plan;

Figure 4 is a sectional view taken on line 4-4
of »Figure 1; and
Figure 5 is a similar view taken on line 5-5
of Figure l, parts being broken away and parts
being shown in elevation for the sake of illus
40 tration.
Referring to the drawing the numeral I0 des
ignates generally a metal container which m-ay
be of any suitable construction and which is pro
vided with a top I I, preferably inset in the man
45 ner indicated in Figures 1 and 2. Thetop II is
provided with an oblong opening equipped with
a similarly shaped nozzle designated ‘generally
at I2. 'I'he nozzle I2 has a vertically disposed
upper portion I3 provided around its upper edge
with a rolled bead I4 and has an outwardly and
downwardly inclining or'ñaring lower portion I5
formed as an integral continuation of the upper
portion I3.
The Haring lower portion I 5 has a horizontally
55 disposed marginal flange I6 which is interseamed
the vertical portion I3 of the nozzle and a down
wardly and outwardly daring portion 25 designed
to snugly inter?it with the flaring portion I5 of
the nozzle when the spout is swung to its pour
ing position. Rigid lugs or ribs 2B are pressed
out from or attached to the vertical portion I3
of the nozzle and are so positioned as to engage
the curving edges 22’ of the spout so that as the
spout is swung up to its pouring position these
lugs or ribs will force the spout forwardly to
cause it to firmly interfit with the portion of the
nozzle with which it is associated. In other
wo-rds, the spout is so designed, dimensioned and
proportioned that its side wings 22 have tight OD 5
spring friction engagement with the inner wall
of the nozzle as the spout is swung to its opera
tive position.
The major axis of the outlet nozzle is substan
tially longer than the corresponding axis of the
spout so that with the spout in its pouring posi
tion there is a substantial venting space 30 rear
wardly thereof. The hinge connection 2l is sufri
ciently loose or “sloppy” to allow the ribs 26 to
exert the camming action described. This ac
tion of the lugs lplus the fact that the wings of
the spout have snug frictional engagement with
the outlet fitting releasably retains the spout in
its pouring‘position. In this connection, it will
be noted that the forward portion ofthe spout
overhangs the bead I4 of the forward portion of
the nozzle and when retained in this relation,
will not drop back into the container. 'I'he spout, ‘
like the container proper is constituted of sheet
metal and hence is possessed of the proper

the spout.
3. A dispensing fitting for containers compris
An important feature of the present invention
resides in the structure and organization of the
spout and its nozzle to insure self-venting at all
times and yet provide for the pouring of as large
a stream from the container as is practically
desirable.
When a person tips the container to
10 pour liquid therefrom, the spout being in its
extended or pouring position, there is available
a spout of ample proportions to allow a stream of
any practical or desirable size to be poured there
from, this following from the substantial extent
15 of th-e side wings of the spout as well as its other
dimensions. Moreover, there is a substantial
space between the rearniost portions of the edges
of the wings of the spout and the rear end of the
nozzle so that at the rear of the nozzle there is
20 always a substantial venting opening.
These fea
tures, together with the fact that the extent of
the spout and the extent of the venting opening
are always within the full View of the person using
the container, will of themselves preclude any
25 possibility of the container being so far tilted as
to interfere with the eifective self-venting. In
fact, this is practically impossible because any
attempt to exceed the capacity of the. spout and
consequently to obstruct the venting opening at
30 the rear thereof would, if made, result in spilling
of the liquid.
