The ‘present-‘invention relates to ‘an apparatus
designed for the breaking of bottlesrandpmore
particularly whiskeybottles.
In order to prevent the re?lling of bottles con
taining an alcoholic beverage such as whiskey,
‘The bore of the casting'9 is shaped to “provide
bearing means for guiding the rod, and the bore
is enlarged below the bearing means to receive a

an arm l4 slidably mounted within a sleeve l5

A still further object of the invention is the formed on the casting 9 at right angles thereto,

The invention will be fully and comprehensive- '
ly understood from a consideration of the follow
groove 11, and the spring I8 is held within the
sleeve l5 by means of the cap [9 on the outer
end of the sleeve. The arm M which serves as a

In the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the new and im
tially rectangular shaped. Access to the interior
of the cabinet is obtained thru a door opening
‘closed by a door 6 hinged to one end of the cabi
net and for imparting visibilityto the interior of
said cabinet there is arranged a window ‘I in one
wall thereof. The cabinet may be constructed of
any desired material "and shape but the base
thereof is preferably provided with a pad 8 of‘
sponge rubber or the like which serves to with
stand the shock of the depending weighted arm
which contacts the bottle.
The bottle breaking means includes a cylindri
cal metallic casting 9 supported on and rising
from the top surface of the cabinet 5, and the in
terior of said casting is hollow for slidably re
ceiving a plunger rod l0 extending through the
cabinet and which has threadedly secured to the
inner end thereof a weighted element II.
55 upper end of the rod has a'knob l 2 secured there
arm I4 so as to displace the. same from they
‘ groove l1, whereupon the weighted member II
will be forced downwardly by the action of grav
ity as well as by the spring 13.
Supported within thecabinet 5 is a removable 40
tray 25 within which the bottle 26 tobe broken
is positioned for disposal in the path of the
weighted member all and, as afore-indicated, ac
cess within the cabinet is obtained thru the door
opening and said'tray 25 may be removed for 45
the positioning of the bottle 26 therein and also
for the discharge of the broken particles of the
bottle therefrom.
From the above description it is believed that
the operation of the device is readily apparent.
.A bottle is ?rst positioned within the tray 25
whereupon the member 20 is actuated to release
the trigger arm [4 and the weighted member will
then descend contacting the bottle 26 with suf
?cient force to break the same. The mechanism 55
2 ,
is reset by grasping the handle portion I 2 and
pulling the same upwardly until the tapered end
I6 of the trigger arm 14 is engaged within the
groove II, it being understood'that the spring [8
normally urges said arm l4 toward the shaft in.
It is to be understood that this improvement is
capable of extended application and is not con
?ned to the exact showing of the drawing nor to
the precise construction described and, therefore,
10 such changes and modi?cations may be made
therein as do not affect the spirit of the invention
nor exceed the scope thereof as expressed in
the appended claim.
What is claimed as new is:
cured on the lower end of said rod, a knob pro
viding a handle on the upper end of said rod, a
spring surroundingthe, rod and engaged with
the Weighted member for urging the latter to
bottle breaking position, a slotted sleeve formed
on said cylindrical member and extending at
right angles therefrom, a trigger member slidably
mounted in the sleeve and receivable in the groove
for holding the weighted member in raised posi- ,
tion, a handle member pivotally connected to the 10
cylindrical? member and" including a 'yoke dis
posed about the slotted sleeve, 2. pin bridging the
- yoke and extending through the slots of the sleeve
and the trigger member respectively for pivotal
