This applica tion is a continuation»v of my priorA application Ser. No.`497«,5'14, ñled‘ August 6„ 1943.

The following it under the urging of its lighter spring extinguisher shown is well adapted to be molded out of many synthetic plastics,k either as part of 30 I3. The cone I2 is confined by lower skirt 25 of the funnel-shaped face I1, because its flat an a box or as an element adapted to be sold sep nular rim 26 lies against the annular lower edge arately to assemblers who vcombine the element of the skirt 25. with boxes or other supporting devices. _ The skirt 25 is shown as spaced away from the Other features and advantages will hereinafter 35 outer wall of the sleeve I8 forming an annular appear. f pocket in which lies the upper coil of the In the accompanying drawing, Figure 1 is a sectional view of an extinguish ing unit mounted in a separate box cover. Figure 2 is a bottom view on the line 2--2 of Figure 1. , spring I9. The outer surface »of funnelfshaped face I1 is shown as forming an annular boss 21 which sug 40 gests to a user that the cigarette be not pushed too hard, because the boss 21 seems to» strike the top of the shell I5 to limit its motion. In Figs. 1 and 3 the shell I6 is shown as closely in the act of extinguishing a cigarette. fitted by a press iit into an opening 28 in the Figure Y4 shows the parts of Figure 3 at the end 45 rabbeted top 29 of a box or receptacle having of an extinguish act. ’ Figure 5 shows they principal operating vparts sides 30, 3|.

The shell I6 with itsboss In the form of the invention shown in Fig. 1, 50 21 forms a convenient handle for lifting the top a cigarette I0 witha glowing tip II is being low 29 to deposit cigarette stubs therein, and the ered to be extinguished, but is shown just as it top 29 and shell I8 and cone I2 close the box touches the extinguishing cone or floating plug against escape of smoke if any unextinguished I2. As the cigarette III is pushed down further the tip Il is pressed against the cone I2 and 55 cigarettes are placed in it, while the depressed 2,406,685 3 cone I2 allows ash to drop into the box, around the cross-piece I4. , The cone is shown as guided by a downwardly projecting post 33 passing through an opening 34 in the cross-piece I4, which may carry a boss 35 around the opening 34 to steady the post 33. The structure shown in Fig. 6, includes the cone I1, the hollow cylinder I8, but the sleevev 4 against passage of smoke, and a receptacle be neath the support. 2. In an extinguisher having a support, a sleeve slidable in the support, a skirt inside the sleeve, a plug adapted to lie against the underside of the skirt, springs for the sleeve and the plug thrusting them upward, and a pin limiting the travel of the sleeve in the support. 3. In an extinguisher, a box, a top for the box, I8 slides in an opening 36, in a cover 31 hinged at 38 at the top of one side 39. The rabbeted 10 a hollow sleeve slidable on the top to receive a cover 31 is shown as molded with an integral ‘ cigarette tip, a plug normally closing the sleeve cross-piece 40, like the cross-piece I4, to sup but moved by a cigarette tip to open the sleeve port the springs. The cross-piece 40 is shown to permit ashes to fall into the box, a spring for at the bottom of the dished opening 36 and the the plug, and a stronger spring for the sleeve. pin 22 rides an opening 4I in one side of the 15 4. In an extinguisher, a box, a top for the dished portion and is mounted on the hollow box, a hollow sleeve projecting above the top sleeve I8. and slidable in the top to receive a cigarette tip, The top of the hollow sleeve I8, with its annular a plug normally closing the sleeve, but moved boss 21 forms a convenient handle for tilting the ' by the cigarette tip to open the sleeve to permit cover 31 on its hinges 38. When the cover 31 20 ashes to fall into the box, a cross-piece below the is down, the cone I2 closes the hollow cylinder sleeve, and springs resting on the cross-piece I8, and no smoke can escape. separately supporting the plug and sleeve. The molded parts of either form are easily 5. In an extinguisher a support, a hollow sleeve assembled and then the pin 22 inserted to hold slidable in the support, a funnel-shaped skirt the structure together. 25 within the sleeve, a slidably mounted plug within Having thus described in some detail certain the sleeve, an annular rim on the plug adapted embodiments of the invention, what is claimed is: to underlie the skirt, a spring normally holding 1.
