(01. 15-139) 1 This invention relates to dispensing devices, and more particularly to devices applicable for dispensing liquids, emulsions and the like. It‘ is alsonecessary, if the dispenser is to be carried in a' pocket or purse, to be able to pro vide a predetermined, ‘small quantity of the ?uid tothe head of the dispenser, and then to dis pense this quantity until it is all used up, so device which will dispense the contained liquid that no accidental discharge can occur. or emulsion when the dispenser is drawn laterally ‘This invention performs the before mentioned across a surface and which will spread the dis functions by providing a dispenser head of charged liquid or emulsion when it is drawn elastic material, such as rubber, plastic or the in a longitudinal direction. ‘ like, in the shape of an elongated dome having 10 Another object of this invention is to pro transverse cuts across the ridge of the dome. vide‘ a dispensing device which will auto When the dispenser head is drawn substan matically seal itself when not in use so that it tially parallel to the ridge of the dome, the may be carried in a pocket or purse. ‘ elastic material is ?exed in such a way that the A further object of this invention is to pro cuts will open up, allowing a quantity of the vide a dispenser which may discharge a prede 15 fluid to be discharged.

A feature of this invention resides in the con ridge. This will carry the ?uid, which has been struction of the dispensing head. discharged, along the surface without opening Another feature of this invention resides in up the slots and hence will not dispense any the manner of controlling the dispensing of a more ?uid until the head is again drawn along 25 An object of this invention is to provide a predetermined quantity of the liquid or emulsion. Other objects and features will become ap parent from the following descriptions and drawing in which like numerals indicate similar parts and in which: Fig. .1 is a longitudinal sectional view of a con tainer having one embodiment of our invention the surface in the direction substantially parallel to the ridge. Referring to the drawing, the dispensing head I has a, rectangularly shaped cross-section in Fig. 1, and a dome-shaped cross section in Fig. 2. The two cross sections are mutually perpen dicular. - The dispensing head I is provided with cuts thereon; Fig. 2 is another sectional view of the same across the ridge l1, and extending to the tran embodiment of this invention; sition portion l8 forming tines which remain Fig. 3 is a sectional view of another embodi 35 closely adjacent to each other because of the ment of this invention wherein the dispensing elastic nature of the material.

The head 30! is again rotated and the holes 3“ and 3|3 are not in a line, forming a valve-like seal. When the ?uid in the cham ber 3!!! is used up another quantity of ?uid is al lowed to enter the chamber by inverting the con tainer and rotating the head. This embodiment 10 may be provided with a plush or felt spreader 301. In Fig. 4, the dispensing head 40! is attached to the container 404 by means of a ferrule M5‘ 7 which is pressed in the form of threadsand com tion and a laterally rounded ridge portion; said ridge portion being segmented into a plurality of tines normally closed together and adapted to be spread apart by ?exing said tines in a direction substantially parallel to said ridge portion and thereby providing communication between said supply vessel and said work for enabling contents within the supply‘ vessel to be discharged be tween said tines to said work. 2.

As the ridge of the head I is drawn across a surface 5l6 in the direction of the arrow 20 parallel to said ridge portion thereby providing communication between said supply vessel and said work and to remain closely abutting each other when ?exed in a direction lateral to said A, the friction between the surface and the head tends to deform the head so that the cuts 2 open up and allow the ?uid to discharge.
