This invention relates to caps or covers for the bowls
of smoking pipes, and it is one of the objects of the inven 10
tion to provide an improved type of cap or cover and
also a novel means for retaining the same in properly
seated position on the top of a pipe bowl.
It is an object of the invention to provide a cap or
cover having means by which the tobacco contents of the 15
pipe bowl can be tamped down Without requiring removal
of the cap or cover from the top of the bowl and by the
utilization of a tamping element provided as a part of the
cap or cover.
It is an object of the invention to provide magnetic
means by which a cap or cover composed in whole or in
ing through which the ?ange \15 extends is shown at 22.
In the normal position of the disk 13, as seen in FIG. 3,
the lower face of the disk is located substantially in the
same plane as the under face of the bottom plate -5 of
the ring 1.
A smoking pipe for which the cover or cap is particu
larly ‘adapted, is shown in FIG. 5, with parts thereof
shown in enlarged form in FIG. 3. The pipe may gen
erally be of conventional form and it is thus provided with
the bowl 16 and the conventional integral stummel 17 ex
tending therefrom. Mounted in the top portion of the
bowl, and at diametrically opposite points on the bowl,
is a pair of permanent magnets indicated at 18. While
two of these magnets are shown, this number may be in
attracted by said magnetic means to thereby cause the cap
creased, if desired or required. Also While this type of
or cover to be properly and securely seated on the top of
pipe construction is particularly useful for use in connec
the pipe bowl.

It is an object of the invention to provide a cap or
cover with a tamping disk resiliently attached to an outer

cap or cover in properly seated position on the top of the
top of the pipe bowl.

‘With these and other objects to be hereinafter set forth
in view, I have devised the 1arrangement of parts to be
described and more particularly pointed out in the claims
appended hereto.
In the accompanying drawing, wherein an illustrative
embodiment of the invention is disclosed,
When the cover or cap is ?tted on top of the bowl
as above described, it will serve to provide the necessary
wind protection such as is a?orded by various other types
of caps. The apertures 20 in the disk 13 and the spacing
between the convolutions of the spiral spring 8 permit
air to reach the tobacco contents 21 of the pipe so that
proper “draw” is attained.

Referring to the drawing, 1 indicates generally the
outer member of the cap or cover, the same being in the
form of an ‘annular hollow ring. The ring is composed of
an annular upper plate 2 having an inturned peripheral
?ange 3 which extends under an out-turned ?ange 4 pro
vided on the edge of the annular lower plate 5. The two
plates 2 and 5, ?tted together as above explained, and as
clearly seen in FIG. 3, provide an annular channel or

tion above the top of the tobacco 21 to the position sub
stantially as shown in FIG. 3.
Having thus described a single embodiment of the inven
tion, it is obvious that the same is not to be restricted
thereto, but is broad enough to cover all structures com
ing within the scope of the annexed claims.
What I claim is:
1. In ‘combination, a smoking pipe having an upwardly
opening bowl having a planar upper edge, magnet means
chamber 6 between them and into which one end 7 of a 65 embedded in said bowl in coplanar relation with the up
spiral spring 8 extends. The opposite end of the spiral
per edge thereof, and a combined protective cover-and
spring 8 is engaged with a button generally indicated at 9,
t-amping cap assembly comprising a support ring including
which ‘button is composed of a rounded head or ?nger
a lower, magnetically attractive, planar plate removably
piece 10 ?tted into a cup-shaped receptacle 11. This
arrangement is such that the button 9 is centrally and 70 retained on said upper edge of said bowl by said embedded
resiliently mounted within the ring 1 and is supported in
magnet means and positioned entirely above said upper
edge, a normally planar coil spring secured at one end to
the inner periphery of said ring above said lower plate,
a ?nger plate secured to the other end of said coil ‘spring
and normally supported thereby above said lower plate,
and a perforated tamping disk secured to said ?nger piece
below said coil spring ‘and in substantially the plane of 5
said lower plate whereby the entire bowl can be completely ?lled with tobacco and the protective cover-andtamping plate can be displaced off the upper edge of said _
bowl in a horizontal plane.
2. The combination of claim 1 wherein said magnet 10
means comprises a pair of magnet elements disposed at
opposite sides of said ‘bowl edge.
