Abstract

A combined spray tube and support assembly is provided for use with a spray container such as an aerosol can and the like. The assembly comprises an elongated spray tube adapted for removable seating within a discharge port of a spray nozzle unit on the spray container. When separated from the spray nozzle unit, the spray tube is removably retained by a support member on the spray container or on a cap for the spray container. In a preferred form, the support member comprises a vertically open support ring on the cap which cooperates with short outwardly projecting tabs near one end of the spray tube to support the spray tube alongside the spray container, with the tabs facilitating manipulation to seat the spray tube within the nozzle discharge port.

  1. 1. A spray tube and support assembly for use in combination with a spray container having a spray nozzle unit for outward discharge of fluid from the spray container, and a protective cap for mounting onto the spray container in a position over the spray nozzle unit, said assembly comprising:a support member carried by said protective cap, said support member including a relatively short outwardly projecting support arm terminating in an upwardly open support ring member; andan elongated spray tube having a size and shape for mounting onto said spray nozzle unit for in-line passage of fluid discharged from said spray container, said spray tube further having a size for sliding reception through said support ring member and including at least one outwardly radiating tab near one end thereof, said tab resting upon said support ring member when said spray tube is received therethrough to support said spray tube relative to said container when said cap is mounted on said container.
  2. 7. A spray tube and support assembly for use in combination with a spray container having a spray nozzle unit for outward discharge of fluid from the spray container, and a protective cap for mounting over the spray nozzle unit, said assembly comprising:a support member formed integrally with said cap, said support member including a relatively short support arm terminating in an upwardly open support ring member; andan elongated spray tube having a size and shape for mounting onto spray nozzle unit for in-line passage of fluid discharged form said spray container, said spray tube further having a size for sliding reception through said support ring member and including a pair of outwardly radiating support tabs near one end thereof for facilitating manual handling of said tube during mounting thereof onto said spray nozzle unit and for resting upon said support ring to retain said spray tube removably in a stored position extending alongside said spray container.
  3. 9. A spray tube and support assembly for use in combination with a spray container having a spray nozzle unit for outward discharge of a fluid from the spray container, said assembly comprising:at least one support member including a relatively short support arm projecting outwardly from said container, a first mounting band sized for relatively snug reception about said container and carrying said support arm, and said support arm terminating in an upwardly open support ring member;an elongated spray tube having a size and shape for mounting onto said spray nozzle unit for in-line passage of the fluid discharged from said container, said spray tube further having a size for sliding reception through and support by said support ring member; anda lower platform member and a second mounting band sized for relatively snug reception about said container for mounting said lower platform member onto said spray container in a position generally vertically aligned with said support ring member, said lower platform member supporting a lower end of said spray tube.
