(o1. 221_c4) ' '
This invention relates to dispensing closures
for containers, and its general object is to provide general use, or ‘form a part of the neck, and in
that event the bodyv of the container will house
a device of that, character, which is primarily‘ the
major portion of the contents to be dispensed
designed for dispensing material in powder, gran
through the neck by my dispensing device in the
ular or chip form from containers, and in a man
5"“
ner whereby the material will be forced from its same manner as. that of the forms shown.

The dispensing container of Figures 1 to 3 in
container and spread in line formation, with'thev
result the device is capable of dispensing den clusive, includes a hollow cylindrical body I re
tifrice powder and the like, upon a‘toothbrush, duced as at 2, to provide a narrow portion 3 that
for the entire length of .the brush headwithout'
waste.
A further object is to provide a dispensing clo
sure that may form the major portion of a con
tainer regardless of the size thereof, yet the
' quantity of the material dispensed can be easily
controlled and retained in line formation for dis
posal upon a brush or the like accordingly.
Another object is to provide a ‘combined con
20
tainer and dispensing closure, or 'whatmay be
termed a dispensing container, with the dispens
ing means associated with the container portion
and constructed in a manner whereby the entire
contents can be readily dispensed with minimum

A still further object is to provide a dispensing ,

The other or wide portion of the body is shown
as being open at its outer end, and is closed by a‘ 1 ow
cap-5 which ispreferably removable so that the
container may be ?lled with powder, granular, or
other like material to be dispensed therefrom.
However, the said end/may be permanently closed 1
after 'the- container is ?lled,'as will be apparent. 2O

tion thereof forms a part and the major portion
of the containers, butthe dispensing portion or
device can be associated merely with the neck of
55 a dentifrice powder container of the type now in
I 2, which is clearly shown in Figure 2. The vanes
I] are ‘preferably'transversely curved from their
connection with , the [sleeve and’ are disposed in
spaced relation with respect to the slots ! 2, to act
as ba?le means for delivering the contents of the 55
2,130,975
container to the slot l0, and the vanes also‘ act
to agitate the contents, as will be apparent.
In the forms of Figures 4 and 5, it will be noted
that the cylindrical body of the container also
includes a narrow portion that provides a shoul
der I4 at the juncture thereof with the wide por
tion l5, and in this form, the sleeve which is indi
cated by the reference numeral I6 is co-extensive
with and is rotatably mounted on the wide por
10 tion l5, which together with the sleeve is pro
vided with end walls I1 and I8 respectively.
The sleeve is also provided with an inturned
annular flange’ 19 at the inner end thereof that
?ts the shoulder M to prevent longitudinal move
15 ment of the sleeve, as will be apparent, and the
end wall l8 has a slot 20 therein providing an
outlet, the slot extending from adjacent the edges
of the wall l8 and across the latter, laterally of
the diameter thereof, as clearly shown in Figure
20 5.
The wall I‘! has a vane 2| struck therefrom
to provide a slot 22 disposed diagonally with re
25"
means formed on the sleeve to deliver the con
tents to the outlet slot.

3. A dispensing container comprising a hollow
cylindrical body reduced intermediate its ends
to provide a narrow portion and a shoulder at
the juncture of the narrow portion with the re
maining portion of the body, said narrow portion
having an outlet slot therein and extending lon
gitudinally thereof, a sleeve ?ttingly and mov
ably mounted within the narrow portion and
having slots therein diagonally disposed with
respect to the slot of the narrow portion to co
operate and progressively register therewith from
one end thereof to the other upon movement of
the sleeve to allow the passage of the contents
of the container therefrom, a cap for closing the
outer end of the narrow portion and formed on
the sleeve for moving the latter, means on the
sleeve and engageable with the shoulder for 00- '
operation with the cap to prevent longitudinal
movement of the sleeve within the narrow por
spect to the slot 20 for progressive registration
tion and means for closing the. outer end of the
therewith, upon rotation of the body, as will be
obvious upon inspection of Figure 5, and such
rotation will cause the contents of the container

to be dispensed therefrom through the outlet
slot 20, in view of the fact that the vane 2i will
deliver the contents to the slot 20.
‘
The opposite end of the body of the form of
30, Figures 4 and 5 may be closed by a cap similar
to the cap 5, or permanently closed, after the
container has been ?lled, and the caps may be
serrated.
From the above description and disclosure of
the drawing, it will be obvious that I have pro
35. vided a dispensing closure by which the contents
of containers can be readily dispensed there
from, in sufficient quantities to spread the same
upon a brush or the like in line formation, as
indicated in Figure 1, thereby such will mate
rially facilitate the application of the contents
to the brush, and without fear of waste thereof.

What I claim is:
55
' -
1. A dispensing device for containers compris
ing a cylindrical body, a sleeve ?ttingly mounted
with‘ respect to the body, said sleeve and body
being rotatably associated and each having out
let means therein for the passage of the con
tents of the container'therethrough, the outlet
means of one being arranged diagonally for’ co
operation with respect to the outlet means of
the other for. progressive registration therewith,
60
from one end of the latter outlet means to the
other end thereof, and a vane for the diagonally
disposed outlet means to act as ba?le means to
direct the contents to the said other outlet
65 means.
2. A dispensing device for containers, compris
ing a cylindrical body having an outlet slot
therein, a sleeve ?ttingly and movably associated
with the bodyv and having slots therein disposed
diagonally with respect to the slot of the body
70 to cooperate and progressively register therewith
from one end thereof to the other upon move
ment of the sleeve to allow the passage of the
contents of the container therefrom and baffle
rotation of the body, to allow the passage ofthe
contents of the container therefrom, and said
vane being adapted to deliver the contents of the '
container to the slot of the sleeve.
6. A dispensing container comprising a hollow‘
cylindrical body including a narrow portion and '
a wide portion joined together to provide a
shoulder at their juncture, a sleeve‘ mounted on
the wide portion for rotation, a ?ange at the
inner end of the sleeve and engaged ‘with'thel to
shoulder to prevent longitudinal movement, of“
the sleeve, companionend walls for the sleeve and
body, the end ‘wall of the sleeve having a slot‘
extending across the same laterally of the ‘diam
eter thereof, a vane struck from the end wall,
of the body to provide a slot extending diagonally
with respect to the slot of the end wall of the
sleeve to cooperate and ‘progressively, register
therewith from one end thereof to the other upon ‘
