Another object of the invention is the provision

when set up for use will be assured of increased
life even when subjected to severe or heavy usage
in transit or storage, the container being readily

A further object of the invention is the provi
\ sion of a container of this character, which is
simple in its construction, thoroughly reliable
and efficient in operation, strong, durable, avoid
20 ing damage to the body or heads of the container
resultant in the use of nails or the like, capable
of being readily filled, emptied and refilled, avoid
- ing the necessity of the driving or pulling of nails
in the setting up or knocking down of such con

With these and other objects in view, the inven
tion consists in the features of construction, com
bination and arrangement of parts as will be
hereinafter more fully described, illustrated in the
30 accompanying drawing, which discloses the pre
ferred and modified forms of embodiment o-f the
invention and pointed out in the claim hereunto
In the accompanying drawing:
Figure 1 is an elevation of a container con
lstructed in accordance with the invention set up
for use.
Figure 2 is a vertical longitudinal sectional view
Figure 3 is a top plan view showing a slight
modification of body hoop.
Figure 4 is a sectional view on the line 4-4 of
Figure 2 looking in the direction of the arrows.
Similar reference characters indicate corre
45 sponding parts throughout the several views in
the drawing.
Referring to the drawing in detail, particularly
Figures 1, 2 and 4, the container, which may be
in the form of a hogshead, barrel, keg or the like,
50 comprises a plurality of body staves I0 which are
arranged edge to edge in the setting up of the
cylindrical body, as is usual. Encircling the cy
lindrical body exteriorly thereof for embracing
the same close to one end is a split circular hoop
55 II which at opposite ends has the turned over
therewith is an annular groove or channel' I5
forming a seat for a releasable head I6 which is
of circularform and at its outer marginal portion
is provided with an annular bead I'I for reception 15
in the channel or groove I5 when said head I6 is
ñtted with the body of the container. The hoop
I I when tightened about the body of the container
interlocks the head I6 with the said body by the
engagement of the bead I'I in the channel or 20
groove I5, this being clearly shown in Figure 2
of the drawing.
Interfltting the other end of the body of the
container is another head I8 which at the outer
periphery or margin -thereof is formed with an 25
annular channel or groove I9 accommodating the
ends of the staves I0 next thereto for counter
seating of the head I8 in the body of the
The body of the container exteriorly thereof 30
next to the head I8 has formed therein the annu
lar channel or groove 20 for the seating therein
of a circular hoop ring 2I which latter is engaged
in this channel or groove 20 before the counter
seating of the head I8 in such body while loosely 35
carried on the hoop or ring 2| preferably at
diametrically opposite points thereof are securing
straps 22, these being inturned at 23 to overlap
the outer periphery or marginal edge of the head
I8 while passed through these straps are the fas- 40
teners 24 and 25, respectively, these being driven
into the head I8 for securing the same counter
seated in the body of the container.
When it is required to gain access to the interior
of the container when set up, the fasteners 24 and 45
25 are pulled out of the head I8 releasing the
straps 22 therefrom so that the head can be re
moved and thus access had to the interior of the
container. Now if it is desired to knockdown or
collapse the container, the hoop II is loosened 50
on the body thereof so that it can be slipped off
of said body thus unclamping the staves I0 per
mitting the head IG to be separated therefrom
v*and likewise the separation of the ring 2I from
the groove or channel 2D with the result that all 55
staves l0 will become freed for the complete col
lapsing of the container.
In Figure 3 of the drawing there is shown a
slight modification of hoop wherein the same is
made in a plurality of sections 26, these at adja
cent ends to each other are adjustably joined one
to the other by the nut-Izarrying` bolts 21, being
rality of staVes arranged edge to edge, a head
counterseated in the body at one end thereof, said
body having an annular groove in the outer sur
face thereof adjacent the end next to the head, a
ring seated in said groove, a plurality of straps
understood, of course, that such hoop may be
said angularly disposed portion of the straps and
into said head.
Adivided into the required number of separable
10 ksections,constructed as just stated.
What is claimed is:
A container comprising a body having a plu
pivotally attached to said ring and each having
an angularly disposed portion overlapping said
head, and fastening elements passing through
