material with thin side walls 2 and rounded end
The principal objects of the invention are to
walls 3.
provide a small container of a size and shape to
Both of the side walls are formed with a
be conveniently carried in the pocket or hand
bag, which will not be liable to be opened acci
5 dentally to spill the contents in the pocket or
slightly enlarged and inwardly bevelled top edge
portion 4 and one of the end walls 5 is depressed
at the top thereof to the level of the bottom of
the bevel of the side walls.
The cover 6 is formed with longitudinal bev
velled grooves ‘I along the sides forming a dove~
tailed centre portion 8, the bevelled side walls of
which lit in sliding contact with the inwardly
bevelled top edges 4 of the side walls of the con
tainer and the projecting flange edges 9 engage
the top edges of the container.
The under face of the portion 8 of the cover
when placed on the container is level with the
top edge of the depressed end wall 5 and the
cover is formed with a lug l0 extending down
wardly therefrom. This lug has a bevelled under
bag, but is provided with a cover which may be
very readily operated to open’ a small ori?ce to
permit the dispensing of the contents one at a
time or in easily controlled small quantities.
A further and important object is to devise a
container which may be manufactured at low
cost and in which the cover or closure is easily
and quickly assembled in a restricted operative
position.

The principal feature of the invention consists
in the novel construction of a container having
resilient side walls ?anged to engage in friction
sliding contact with the longitudinally grooved
edges of a cover, and in which the cover is pro
side and a perpendicular end H, which forms a
latch to engage the inner side of the end wall 5.
The lug I6 is bevelled so that when the cover
20 vided with a bevelled latch member adapted to
slip over the end wall of the container in being
assembled thereon and after being assembled to
engage the inner side of the end wall of the
is being assembled, the sloping surface will ride
freely over the end wall 5, while the dove-tailed
container to form a stop member to limit the
25 movement of the cover, so that only a small area
of the top of the container will be opened and’
thus'form a restricted dispensing ori?ce.
In the accompanying drawing, Figure l is a
perspective view of my improved container show
80 ing its cover in the closed position.
Figure 2 is a perspective view showing the
cover in the dispensing position uncovering a
small area of the container.
Figure 3 is a part sectional side elevation show
35 ing the container closed.
Figure 4 is a part sectional side elevation show
ing the cover in the open or dispensing position.
Figure 5 is a part sectional side elevation
showing the cover in the act of being assembled
40 on the container.
Figure 6 is a cross sectional view taken on the
line 6-43 of Figure 4.
Figure '7 is a cross sectional view taken on the
line 1-1 of Figure 5.
Figure 8 is a perspective view of the underside
45
of the cover removed from the container.
In the dispensing of small tablets or pills it is
desirable to provide a container which may be
conveniently carried in the pocket or hand bag,
50 and from which the contents may be shaken one
at a time or only a few at a time when the pills
or tablets are very small.
In the device illustrated in the accompanying
drawing, the body l of the container is preferably
" moulded in a unitary piece of thermo-plastic
e
portion of the cover is gripped between the
bevelled side walls. These walls being resilient,
spring outwardly under the slight upward pres
sure caused by the lug l0 mounting the end wall,
but they snap back into the bevelled grooves
when the lug slips over the end wall, thus caus
ing the perpendicular end of the lug to extend
below the top of the end wall and thus form a
limiting stop to the cover. This lug is placed at
any desired position to allow the cover to be
opened a predetermined distance to form the de
‘sired dispensing opening, but it forms a positive
stop to prevent the cover being opened too far
or displaced from the container.
The resilient pressure contact of the side walls
against the dove-tailed portion 8 of the cover
prevents the cover from sliding accidentally and
suitable cross ridges l2 are preferably formed
on the top surface of the cover to facilitate its
operation with the thumb or ?nger. These cross 45
ridges may be arranged in any desirable position.
What I claim as my invention is:—
l. A dispensing container having resilient
?anged side walls, a rigid cover slidably engag
ing said ?anged walls and capable of assembly
therewith only by the ?exing of said resilient
side walls, and means co-operatively interposed
between said container and said rigid cover for
automatically ?exing said side walls including a
stop member extending from the cover adapted
.,
i

to subsequentlylimit the sliding movement of
the cover.
t
2. A dispensing container having resilient side
walls ?anged at the top, a rigid cover frictionally
engaging said ?anges, and a lug formed integral
with said cover having a downwardly bevelled
surface to engage and ride over one end wall of
the container and terminating in a perpendicular
end spaced from the adjacent end of the cover
10 a distance such that it engages the inner side of
said end wall only after a predetermined open
ing movement of the cover, the ?anged walls of
the container and the cover presenting co-oper
ative surfaces bevelled in predetermined relation
to the bevel of said lug whereby the riding of
the bevelled lug over the end wall ?exes the
resilient side walls to effect a locked assembly
of the parts.
