SANITARY ASHCAN AND GARBAGE CAN
Martin Glowka, New York, N. Y.
Application January 27, 1937, Serial No. 122,517
2 Claims.
This invention relates to new and useful im
provements in a soldered sanitary strip for ash
cans, and garbage cans.
I-Ieretofore ash cans and garbage cans have
5 been constructed with double turned in seams of
unprotected material which were subjected to
great strain when the ash cans were thrown about
during ash removal. Consequently, the seams
would buckle open and the ash cans would spill
10 some of their contents. This has been particu
larly objectionable when the cans contained gar
bage, as then the garbage would litter the street.
Many cities have ordinances prohibiting the use
of such defective ash cans and quite often janitors
15 and others using these ash cans are given sum
monses by health of?cers because of violation of
these sanitary ordinances.
This invention has for an object the provision
of means associated with a conventional ash can
20 by which the double turned in seams are rein
forced to prevent their opening as above ex
plained.
Still further the invention particularly contem
plates the attachment of reinforcement strips
25 along the seams for two purposes: First, to them
(Cl. 220—-81)
Fig. 5 is a fragmentary side elevational view of
the seam portion of an ash can constructed ac
cording to a modification of this invention.
Fig. 6 is a sectional view taken on ‘the line 6-43
of Fig. 5.
The ash can, according to this invention, com
prises a standard ash or garbage can ll) having
a conventional double turned in seam II extend
ing from the top to the bottom, formed during the
manufacture of the can, which is constructed
from sheet material.
This ash can also has a
set in bottom I2 connected with the side of the
ash can by another double turned in seam I3. A
strip of material I4 is extended over the seam I I
and extends its complete length and is secured to
the material of the ash can by known methods.
It may be soldered, braized, welded, or attached
in any other manner.
A plurality of reinforcing plates It’ may also
be riveted to the can ll] over the seam II of the 20
ash or garbage can and a suitable handle I0’
riveted on top of one of these plates. The ash can
is provided with a cover I5 adapted to engage
tightly over the top of the ash can and over the
top end portion of the strip I4.

At the bottom the double seam I3 is reinforced
selves receive shocks and pressures to which the
ash can is subjected, and second, to cover up the
weak double turned in seam and so reinforce it.
Still further the invention proposes the associa
30 tion of a packing element with the seam and an
by two strips. There is an outer annular strip
I6 engaged about the lower portion of the ash can,
and an inner annular strip I'I engaged around the
arrangement for forcing the packing element into
annular member I‘! is of angle shape in transverse
the seam so as to re-close the seam should it open
cross section. Both the strips I6 and I‘! are sol
dered, braized, welded or in any other manner
attached to the material of the ash can.
In Fig. 4 a household garbage can I8 is illus
accidentally. It is further contemplated to so
arrange these parts so that they simultaneously
' protect the seam from direct blows when the ash
can is being handled.
For further comprehension of the invention,
and of the objects and advantages thereof, ref
erence will be had to the following description and
40 accompanying drawing, and to the appended
claims in which the various novel features of the
invention are more particularly set forth.
In the accompanying drawing forming a ma
terial part of this disclosure:

structed according to this invention.
Fig. 2 is a horizontal sectional View taken on
the line 2-2 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is a fragmentary sectional view taken on
50 the line 3—3 of Fig. 1.

inside of the double turned seam l3. This inner 30
trated to which the invention has been applied.
This garbage can has a cover I9 which is operated
by a link 20 connected with a foot pedal 2 I. The
details of this garbage can will not be given in
this speci?cation since they form no part of the 40
invention, and similar constructions are generally
known. This can I8 is provided with a reinforce
ment strip. Ilia extended over and protecting the
double turned side seam‘ thereof. There is also
an annular member I6’ extended over and at 45
tached to the bottom portion of the can I8 for
protecting the bottom seam.
In Figs. 5 and 6 a modi?cation of the invention
has been described in which there is provision for
packing the seam in the event that it opens 50
slightly during the use of the ash can. More spe
ci?cally, an ash can I0” is illustrated with a side
double turned in seam I I’ '. A plate 23 is extended
across this double turned in seam and is slidably
supported by spaced studs 24 mounted on the 55
2
2,114,800
body of the ash can and working in slots 25 formed
in the plate 23. The outer edge portion of the
plate 23 has a hooked bent in portion 23?‘ which
engages against the split end 26’ of rubber pack
ing or similar packing material 26 which is caught
in by a portion of the double turned in seam I l ”.
The. hook portion 23a engages the split end 26' and
forces one side portion thereof against the side
of the ash can and the other portion against the
10 side portion of the double turned in seam i I".
A tensioning device is associated with the plate
23 for applying pressure against the packing ele
ment 2%. This pressure means comprises spaced
studs 27 attached at spaced positions on side por
15 tions of the plate 23 and extending through
brackets 28.
Nuts 29 are engaged on the studs 21
and act against the brackets 23 for providing the
required pressure at the packing element 26.
Should the seam i5’ slightly open due, to rough
20 handling of the can, or for other reasons, the nuts
29 may be turned further downwards to force the
packing 26 further into the open seam and so tend
to close it. The plate 23 extends across the double
seam H’ for protecting it.

While I have illustrated and described the pre
ferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be
understood that I do not limit myself to the pre
cise constructions herein disclosed and the right
is reserved to all changes and modi?cations com
30 ing within the scope of the invention as de?ned in
the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention, what I
claim as new, and desire to secure by United
States Letters Patent is:—
1. In an ash can, a double turned in seam, a
sheet of resilient material clamped in said seam
and extending therefrom, a protecting strip en
0
gaged over said seam and having an o?'set edge
portion engaging said resilient sheet for clamping
said resilient material against the side of the seam
and the side of the can, means [or slidably sup
porting saidstrip on said can, and means for
forcing said strip laterally to increase its pressure
and change its position in relation to said resilient
material.
2. In an ash can, a double turned in seam, a 15
sheet oi‘ resilient material clamped in said seam
and extending therefrom, a protecting strip en
gaged over said seam and having an offset edge
portion engaging said resilient sheet for clamping
said resilient material against the side of the seam 20
and the side of the can, means for siidably sup
porting said strip on said can, and means for
forcing said strip laterally to increase its pressure
and change its position in relation to said resilient
material, comprising several studs attached upon 25
said strip, brackets on said can through which said
studs extend, and nuts threadedly engaged upon
said studs and acting against said brackets.
