This invention relates to improvements in ?uid
dispensing apparatus, such for example as is used
for dispensing measured quantities of gasoline
and the like.
More particularly, the invention relates to an
improved movable hose hook which is adapted to
support the hose or hose nozzle of the dispensing
apparatus when not in use and which is‘ adapted
by its movement to control the operation of the
pump motor of the apparatus.
Movable hose hooks, for the purpose described,
have been used heretofore and are shown in
various forms in the prior art. A fully auto—
matic hook, which will be moved to start the
motor merely by the removal of the hose nozzle
from the hook and which will be moved to stop
the motor by the weight of the nozzle on the
hook, is not generally acceptable because‘ the
accidental removal of the nozzle from the hook
would start the pump motor and possibly at a
time when the authorized attendant was not
present. To guard against danger from the ac
cidental or mischievous removal of the nozzle
from the hook it is generally required that some
intentional and deliberate movement, other than
removal of the nozzle, be made by the operator
in order to start the pump motor. The common
practice, heretofore, has been to arrange the
manually pulled outwardly from the pump casing
as a condition precedent to its upward swinging
movement into motor-starting position, such up
ward movement then being automatically per
formed, and the hose hook can be pulled out
wardly by pulling outwardly on the nozzle as an
incident to the act oi’ removing the nozzle from
the hook without requiring the use of more than
one hand and without any possibility of injury
to the nozzle.
I
The invention also has for an object to provide
improved means for interlocking the hose hook
with the register-resetting means of the appa
ratus. Such interlocking is generally required
and generally used but it is not indispensable
and the invention may be used without it when
the fluid dispensing apparatus is 01’ such charac
ter, that the precaution of the interlock is not
required.
The invention will be disclosed with reference
to the accompanying drawings, in which?

The rocker 41 is adapted to be shifted from one

means. Such means includes an arm 64, the hub
of which is pivotally mounted on a stud 65, fixed
to and projecting rearwardly from plate 25.
Projecting rearwardly from arm 64 is a stud 4B
which lies in the space between two ?anges l1
and 68 which project forwardly from rocker 41
and which diverge outwardly away from the pivot
48 of the rocker. The stud 68 by engagement with
?ange 61 is adapted to move the rocker clockwise,
as viewed in Fig. 4, and by engagement with
?ange B8 is adapted to move the rocker counter
clockwise.
The arm 64 also carries a stud 69

hose hook. At the same time, the rocker is so po
sitioned that dog 49 is withdrawn from notch Bl!

and free to be turned byhandle II when desired.
The hose hook is locked against such swinging
movement as is necessary in order to close the

ever, be pulled outwardly in a, substantially hori
