Abstract

This is an automatic locking security enclosure for cash deposit. The cash depository or safe 3 has a money chute and lockable door, not shown. The top of the safe 3 forms a bulkhead 3' to which is bolted, riveted, or welded the receptor base 4. The bag has a zipper and a zipper lock, not shown, and a self-locking top 2. The self-locking top contains a bag aperture 6 which, when open as shown in Fig. 2, receives the money which falls down the money chute into bag 1. Bag aperture 6 has a sliding door 7 with an aperture door latch hole 8, which door is automatically closed when bag 1, 2 is removed from safe 3, or, that is, receptor base 4. Also, bag top 2 contains a detent pin hole 9 for holding bag 1, 2 within safe 3, unless sliding door 7 is being operated to close it as bag 1, 2 is removed.

Cash Security Enclosure

This is an automatic locking security enclosure for cash deposit. The cash depository or safe 3 has a money chute and lockable door, not shown. The top of the safe 3 forms a bulkhead 3' to which is bolted, riveted, or welded the receptor base 4. The bag has a zipper and a zipper lock, not shown, and a self- locking top 2. The self-locking top contains a bag aperture 6 which, when open as shown in Fig. 2, receives the money which falls down the money chute into bag 1. Bag aperture 6 has a sliding door 7 with an aperture door latch hole 8, which door is automatically closed when bag 1, 2 is removed from safe 3, or, that is, receptor base 4. Also, bag top 2 contains a detent pin hole 9 for holding bag 1, 2 within safe 3, unless sliding door 7 is being operated to close it as bag 1, 2 is removed. Bag 1 is riveted to top 2 such that when it is removed from safe 3, with the aperture sliding door 7 latched shut, the only way to enter bag 1, 2 is through the locked zipper opening, not shown.

Figs. 1 and 2 show the relationship of money bag base 4, money bag top 2, and the various latching mechanisms when bag 1, 2 is locked within safe 3 or money bag base 4. With top 2 of money bag 1 slid within the base channel 5 to its fully inserted position, detent 10 is forced down into detent hole 9 by detent spring 11. Door latch 12 is inserted into door latch hold 8 when handle 13 is in the position shown in Fig. 1, which position it must be in for the safe door, not shown, to be closed and locked. Thus, unless sliding door 7 is in the fully opened position, latch hole 8 will not be in position to receive door latch 12 and latch shaft 14 cannot be rotated by handle 13 to the position shown in Fig. 1.

The manner in which the bag is removed from the safe will now be described. Referring to Fig. 2, handle 13 is rotated to the position 13'. With detent pin 15 riding in detent channel 16 along the longitudinal axis of latch shaft 14, door latch 12 is inside of latch hole 8 and pushes sliding door 7 upward (as viewed in Fig. 2) to the closed position, not shown. That is, handle 13 is rotated to the dotted line position 13' and then pushed inward (upward as viewed in Fig. 2), so that handle 13 and latch shaft 14 move along its longitudinal axes without rotation due to detent pin 15 being constrained within detent pin channel 16. Once detent pin 15 has reached position 15' handle 13' can be rotated to rotate latch shaft 14 such that detent pin 15 is rotated counterclockwise, as viewed in Fig. 1, to force detent 10 out of detent hole 9 by engaging detent pawl 24 and rotating detent shaft 17, to which pawl 16...
