1 Claim. (01. 40-8)
This invention relates to new and useful im
provements in bar spigot knobs or the like, and
it is among the objects thereof to provide a knob
embodying a simple and inexpensive means of
applying a name plate thereto.
In the vending of draft beer, it is necessary
or desirable to mark the beer spigot knobs with
the name of the product dispensed through the
particular spigot, and the name must be applied
10 to be visible to the consumer.
In accordance with the present invention, a
construction of spigot knob is provided in which
the main body of the knob may be produced in
large quantities and inexpensively, of cast metal
or the like, and the name plate in the form of
an annulus may be applied to such knobs by
merely snapping them in a groove provided in
the knob, the annular name plate also function
ing to hold the knob parts in their assembled
The invention will become more apparent in
consideration of the accompanying drawing con
stituting a part hereof in which like reference
characters designate like parts and in which:
Fig. 1 is a front elevational View of a spigot
knob embodying the principles of this invention;
Fig. 2 a vertical cross-sectional View thereof;
Fig. 3 a front elevational View with name plate
removed; and
Fig. 4 a top plan view of the annular name
As shown in the several ?gures of the drawing,
the structure therein illustrated comprises a sub
stantially spherically shaped knob constructed of
parts I and 2, part I being provided with a
threaded bushing 3 for screwing on the end of a
spigot arm 4, as shown in Fig. 1. The parts I
and 2 may be die cast metal, aluminum or other
light weight material and the bottom portion I
is provided with a ?ange portion 5 for receiving
a cylindrical portion 6 of the upper member 2.
The outer periphery of the members I and 2 at
their point of meeting are recessed as shown at ‘I,
Fig. 3, to receive a band 8 of brass or other
springy material having lugs 9 formed thereon for
interacting with slots I0 provided in the knob
element. The band 8 is provided with in-turned 5
ends II which also ?t into slots I0 of the knob
element. When the members are assembled in
Fig. 3, the band 8 is snapped in position as shown
in Fig. 1 of the drawing, the lugs 9 and II func
tioning to prevent displacement of the members 10
I and 2.
The bands 8 are provided with the indicia of
the brand of beer dispensed through the spigot
on which the knob is mounted, and by employing
a band, such as the band 8, the name may be 15
engraved, enameled or otherwise provided on the
band a number of times so as to be plainly visible
from any angle at which the knob is viewed.
Although one embodiment of the invention has
been herein illustrated and described, it will be 20
evident to those skilled in the art that various
modi?cations may be made in the manner of
assembling the knob parts and ring without de
parting from the principles herein set forth so
long as provision is made for snapping the name 25
band on the member as herein described.
I claim:
A spigot knob comprising a pair of semi-spher
ical portions, one of which is provided with a
recess and the other with a projecting element 30
adapted to interact with the recess to form a
substantially spherical knob, said knob, when
assembled, having a peripheral recess at the point
of juncture of the assembled parts and being
further provided with notches, a name plate of 35
annular shape sprung on said spherical knob
in the recess thereof and having its outer surface
continuous with the contour of the knob, said
name plate having projections for interacting
with the notches of said knob element.
