Paul A. Hunickc, Fort Madison, Iowa .Application February 1;19a9, Serial No. 254,101

, 2 Claims. (Cl. 299-95) My invention relatesto protective devices and more particularly to protective devices utilized for repelling burglars, hold-up men and other criminals. v 5 One of the principal objects of my invention is to provide a, protective or repelling device capable of beinghidden within the clothing of a wearer, for the most part, and operable for discharging a gas or liquid to blind or otherwise preclude the latter from carrying out his purpose.

Another object of my invention is to provide a device of the character described which is simple in construction, durable in use, efficient in operation and economical in manufacture.

Other objects and advantages will be apparent from the following description, appended claims and annexed drawing.

Referring to the-drawing wherein like reference characters designate like parts throughout the several views: Figure l is a side elevation of myinvention illustrating the-same as applied to the arm of a user. I Figure 2 is a front elevation of my invention. Figure 3 is a detail sectional view taken on the line 3-4 of Figure 2.

Figure 4 is a detail sectional view taken on the line 4-4 of Figure 2. In practicing my invention I provide a cylindrical shaped container 5 adapted to contain a repelling gas or liquid and which is provided adjacent the upper end thereof with' a hook 6 engaging the garment of the wearer adjacent the 5 sleeve aperture in the garment. The container is thus disposed adjacent the upper arm of the wearer and hidden from view.

The container, at the upper end 1 thereof, is provided with an intake valve, for

. container for use, said valve being of an ordinary construction. The lower end 8 of the container has connected thereto .a nipple ID on which is secured the upper end of a tube II, the lower 5 end of the tube extending downwardly through admitting gas or liquid under pressure whereby to fill said II has connected valve member It. The valve member I8 is fashion'ed with a stem l9 extending without the casing and equipped with'a push button 20 whereby said valve member may be pressed inwardly to open the valve seat and effect communication be- 5 tween the tube Hand nozzle l6 through the passage l5. 1

In use, the container is disposedwithinthe sleeve of the garment as illustrated in Figure 1 and the tube leading therefrom is secured to the 10 wrist by means of the strap I2..I In this position the.valve i3 is carried in the palm of the hand with the nozzle underlying the forefinger. Upon closing of the hand and actuating the push button by means of the thumb, the gas or liquid from 1 the container is released and-discharged into the face of the criminal to render him helpless. A device of this character is particularly adaptable for bank messengers, prison guards, ladies out alone at night and other :divers persons desiring 20 protection.

It is obvious that the. invention is not confined to the herein described use therefor as it may be utilized for any purpose to which it is adaptable. It is therefore to be understood that the inven- .25 .tion is not limited to the specific construction as illustrated and described, as the same is only illustrative of the principles of operation which are capable of extended application in advance forms, and that the invention comprehends all 30 constructionwithin the scope of the appended claims.

What I claim is:

l. A device of the character described, comprising, a receptacle adapted to be hidden within the sleeve of a garment of a user adjacent the upper armof said user, a tube connected to said receptacle and adapted to extend therefrom to the palm of the hand of said user, a strap carried by said tube for securing the latter in adjusted position about the wrist of said user, a normally closed discharge valve connected to said tube and adapted to be carried within the palm of the hand' and operable therein upon closing of the fingers to open position for dischargingv the con 5 tents of said receptacle into the face of a crim-- inal, and a hook mounted on said receptacle and adapted to engage the garment for supporting said receptacle in hidden condition within the sleeve thereof. v
