Application July 30, 1945, Serial No. 607,782 1 Claim. (01. 220-—35) - 1 2 My invention relates to ash receivers for smok ing sets and is particularly adapted for holding The said head 5 is also provided with a well 1 preferably of conical formation, and having an opening 20 therein providing access to the inner 4 the ashes from cigars or cigarettes. The main object of my invention is to provide chamber of the ash receiver 24 so that the ashes 25 may be dropped therein. The said head piece 5_ is also provided with a series of partially cy lindrical indentations 8 on which a cigarette or cigar may be rested with the burning end thereof an economical structure or means for manipulat ing a coniform trap door construction which is adapted to seal the cavity within the head of an ash receiver and thus safely con?ne ashes, cigarette butts, and cigar butts which may be in burning condition when deposited therein, pre venting the same from causing accidental con 10 being pointed in the direction of the well 1. The opening 20 is maintained sealably closed byrmeans of a coniform structure 18 provided with a skirt portion I9, and it is to be noted, that ?agration; in other words, the entire contraption is sealed against the outer atmospheric conditions the skirt portion I9 is of a larger diameter than thus causing the said burning cigarette or cigar the recess 20 in the head support 5. The said butts, deposited therein, to be effectively snuffed 15 coniform element I8 is placed in inverted rela out. tionship to the coniform well 1 as indicated‘ in A speci?c object of my invention is to provide Figure 2, and has secured thereto the manipu ‘a closure of coniform con?guration articulately lating knob or pin 2|. which is suitably undercut and separably connected to an articulate arm as indicated at 22 having its end 22 recessed so which is spring urged at its mOOI‘iI‘lg and adapted 20v as to provide an articulating connection for the to retain the said coniform closure in sealing articulately mounted lever or arm 16 secured at contact with an opening in the head of the ash its free terminus to the hemispherical recess 23. receiving unit. The lever I6 is bent to any convenient shape as Another object of my invention is to provide a indicated, one arm thereof 21 being bent to clear structure of the aforementioned character which 25 the coniform element I8 or the skirt 19 thereof, it being also provided with a bent portion or end is simple in construction, practical and ef?cient for the purposes for which it may be used, and 28 which is articulately mounted in a U shaped of such simple elemental structure as to permit bracket 9. The said U shaped bracket is provided economical manufacture thereof in quantity pro with extensions l0 and l I, a spring being mount duction. ed about the end 28, the said spring having one With these and other objects in view, one em of its ends 13 anchored against the edge of the bodiment of my invention is illustrated in the extension l0, its other end being elongated as accompanying drawing, where like symbols des indicated at I4 and provided with an attaching ignate, or denote, like parts, and in which: loop I 5 which is secured to the portion 21 of the Fig. 1 is a top elevational view of my invention. 35 lever or arm, generally designated 16. The U Fig. 2 is a longitudinal cross-sectionalview tak _ shaped bracket 9 is secured to the top portion of en, substantially, on the 1ine'2-2 of Figure 1. the head 5 by means of a rivet 29 or any other Fig. 3 is an end view of Figure 1, depicting a suitable means. portion of the flange broken away in order to The'construction, hereinbefore described and more clearly indicate the structural details of my 40 elucidated, is of such simplicity that it can be invention. readily manufactured very economically, and I, Referring to the various views, my invention particularly, wish to stress that the extension I‘! is, generally, designated 4 and consists of a head of the arm I6 is not secured to the coniform or inverted cup-shaped element 5, having the pe— structure but by virtue of the recess 23 the leg ripheral ?ange 6, which is adapted to engage a 45 or extension I‘! articulates therein freely, and shoulder portion 25, of an ash receiver 24, which when the top 30 of the handle element 2| is de may be of any particular or speci?c con?gura pressed to the dotted position indicated by de tion. Although the form indicated at 24 is a pressing it with the ?nger, the coniform struc table type of ash receiver, the unit comprising ture closely co-acts with the tip of the extension my invention may be embodied and embraced in 50 I1 and cannot be jarred loose therefrom because other structures, such as ?oor model types of ash the instant the ?nger hold is released at the receivers, or may be attached to wells in such point 30, the potential energy stored in the spring models of receivers equipped with a mouth or I2 is converted to kinetic energy which forces opening which will accommodate the ?ange por the coniform unit or element l8 to move up tion 6 thereof. 55 wardly and equalize itself within the opening 20 2,410,606 3 4 thus seating itself to seal the compartment of the ash receiver 24, thus preventing smoke from emanating therefrom, at the same time prevent into the compartment of the receiver proper. However, it is to be noted, and I wish to stress the fact, that as soon as pressure or depression force exerted at 30 is released, the entire ar ing oxygen from entering the said compartment thus having a tendency to prevent continual com bustion from taking place; in‘ other words, pre rangement automatically assumes the position indicated in full lines in the cross-sectional view in Figure 2. Although, I have herein indicated a preferred venting lighted cigarette butts from continuing to burn but gradually tending to snu? them out as soon. as the ,oxygen within, the compartment in the ai'shhreceivei'r‘has been consumed. _ _7 10 A particular point to be stressed is that in ash receivers, wherein a well has been provided and ~ a seal therefor, there is considerable mechanism which must be closely assembled in order to make structural,arrangementrof parts expounding the theories ;and practices of'rny invention, yet in asmuch as the same is susceptible of modi?ca tions and improvements, I hereby reserve the ‘right to all modi?cations and improvements com~ ing within the scope and spirit of my invention, available effective operation thereof.‘ In this as well as any implications suggested or em construction it can, readily, be seen that the articulate separable connection indicated at 23 working in concert with the tip of the leg I‘! _ permits the coniform structure l8 to be con?ned in a manner which is readily assembled, or taken braced in the accompanying drawing, and also apart, ‘and yet ‘no particularaccuracy need be 'observedinasmuch as the coniform structure I8 is of larger magnitude than the ‘seal opening 20; those coming ‘Within the purview of the foregoing description. Having thus revealed and described my in vention, what I claim as novel and desire to se v‘cure by vLetters ‘ Patent is: @An ash tray head comprising, ‘a cap element having an internal well portion terminating in thus both equalizing action takes place as well ‘as perfect‘sealin'g action vwith'the positive as ‘s'tirance'that the coniform element l_8 will always an open portion and having an ‘outer ?anged portion adapted to be secured to an ash receiver, "engagdsealably ‘the opening 29 in the head ele jacen't the said ?ange portion, a substantially U shaped arm having one of its legs provided with an extension pivotally secured to the said ‘bracket, conical snuffer means provided with abase por ment'S, ' a bracket secured to the said cap element ad I The operation of my invention is clearly in cated in ‘Figure 2 as shown by the full and'dotted lines. While the dotted lines indicate a straight tion of greater magnitude than the'said open perpendicular travel of 'the handle 2|, and the coniiorm element l8, yet it is readily deducible portion, the said conical snuifer means having its apex 'detachably secured. to'the end of the free leg of the said U shaped armby a universal joint, and spring means con?ned-about the said extension and having one of its ends anchored to the said bracket, its other end being secured that the said'conifo'rm element ‘l8 may assume any other position than that shown by virtue of the ‘pivotal connection at 23, to the end of ‘the ‘leg :1 of the swinging arm or lever l6. v'l‘hr'ough the opening thus created, and as indicated by the-arrows, the ashes 25 will drop, the ~coniform shape of the element l8 aiding gravity materially in drawing down the ashes to the said ?rst~mentioned leg of the said U shaped arm. 40 ’ p 7 ANDREW MICHYETA.
