Description


[0001] This application claims the priority of Taiwan patent application No. 108208967, filed on July 9, 2019.

1. Field of the Invention



[0002] The present invention relates to an ink pad container, and more particularly to an ink pad container that can be easily forced to detach from a stamp and moves steadily.

2. Description of Related Art



[0003] For replacing an ink pad container of a conventional stamp easily, the conventional stamp has a fixing seat, a moving seat, a recovery member, a printing member, and the ink pad container. The fixing seat has a space formed in the fixing seat, an inner front opening formed in a front surface of the fixing seat, and two inner side openings respectively formed in two side surfaces of the fixing seat. The inner front opening and the two inner side openings all communicate with the space. The inner front opening directly communicates with the two inner side openings. The moving seat is disposed on the fixing seat and has an outer front opening and two outer side openings. The outer front opening of the moving seat is formed in a front surface of the moving seat and communicates with the inner front opening of the fixing seat. The two outer side openings are respectively formed in two side surfaces of the moving seat, both directly communicate with the outer front opening, and respectively communicate with the inner side openings of the fixing seat. The recovery member is disposed between the fixing seat and the moving seat. The printing member is located in the space of the fixing seat and is controlled by the moving seat. The ink pad container is inserted into the space of the fixing seat. The ink pad container has a body and two clipping elements. The two clipping elements are respectively disposed on two side surfaces of the body adjacent to a front surface of the body, are respectively located in the two inner side openings of the fixing seat, and are respectively exposed out of the outer side openings of the moving seat.

[0004] When replacing the ink pad container, a thumb and a second finger of a user are respectively inserted into the two outer side openings for catching the two clipping elements of the ink pad container simultaneously. The two clipping elements are pulled simultaneously. The body of the ink pad container moves out of the inner front opening of the fixing seat and the outer front opening of the moving seat for replacing the ink pad container conveniently.

[0005] However, the two clipping elements are simultaneously clipped and forced by the user to form two-point forcing. In the two-point forcing, the forces applied on the two clipping elements are difficult to keep equal. When the forces applied on the two clipping elements are different, the ink pad container may be rotated and stuck in the fixing seat. Therefore, the replacement of the ink pad container is inconvenient and unstable.

[0006] Moreover, the two clipping elements of the ink pad container are disposed on the two side surfaces of the body. The fixing seat has the two inner side openings and the moving seat has the two outer side openings in accordance with the two clipping elements. Therefore, the ink pad container cannot be applied to the moving seat without the two outer side openings and the fixing seat without the two inner side openings, so the applicability of the ink pad container is not good.

[0007] To overcome the shortcomings, the present invention provides an ink pad container to mitigate or obviate the aforementioned problems.

[0008] The objective of the invention is to provide an ink pad container that can solve the shortcoming that the forces applied on the two clipping elements of the conventional ink pad container are difficult to keep equal, the replacement of the conventional ink pad container is inconvenient and unstable, and the applicability of the conventional ink pad container is not good.

[0009] The ink pad container is detachably disposed on a fixing seat of a stamp and has a body. The body has a chamber formed in the body, a bottom surface, two opposite side surfaces, a front surface, an opening formed in the bottom surface of the body and communicating with the chamber, two positioning portions formed in the two opposite side surfaces of the body respectively, a front recess formed in the front surface of the body, a front stopper formed across the front recess of the body, and a front guiding groove formed between the front stopper and the front recess.

[0010] Furthermore, the body has a rear surface, a rear recess formed in the rear surface of the body, a rear stopper formed across the rear recess of the body opposite to the front stopper, and a rear guiding groove formed between the rear stopper and the rear recess.

[0011] The ink pad container is applied to a first embodiment of the stamp. The fixing seat of the stamp has a front insertion opening. The front insertion opening is formed in a front surface of the fixing seat and is exposed out of the stamp. The ink pad container is inserted into the fixing seat via the front insertion opening of the fixing seat. The front stopper of the body is exposed out of the front insertion opening of the fixing seat. To replace the body, a nail of a user is inserted into the front guiding groove and abuts an inner edge of the front stopper for forcing to pull out the body.

[0012] The ink pad container is applied to a second embodiment of the stamp. The fixing seat of the stamp has the front insertion opening formed in the front surface of the fixing seat and a rear insertion opening formed in a rear surface of the fixing seat. The front insertion opening and the rear insertion opening are both exposed out of the stamp. During replacement, a finger of the user can force on an outer surface of the rear stopper of the body via the rear insertion opening, so that the body can be protruded out of the front insertion opening slightly, and then the nail of the user can be inserted into the front guiding groove and abut the inner edge of the front stopper for forcing to pull out the body. Alternatively, the nail of the user can be inserted into the front guiding groove and abut the inner edge of the front stopper for forcing to pull out the body without firstly forcing on the outer surface of the rear stopper.

[0013] The ink pad container is applied to a third embodiment of the stamp. The fixing seat of the stamp has the front insertion opening formed in a front surface of the fixing seat and a rear insertion opening formed in a rear surface of the fixing seat. The front insertion opening and the rear insertion opening are both exposed out of the stamp. The rear insertion opening is covered by a moving seat of the stamp. During replacement, the user can push the outer surface of the rear stopper of the body by a pushing device disposed on the moving seat, so that the body can be protruded out of the front insertion opening slightly, and then the nail of the user can be inserted into the front guiding groove and abut the inner edge of the front stopper for forcing to pull out the body. Alternatively, the nail of the user can be inserted into the front guiding groove and abut the inner edge of the front stopper for forcing to pull out the body without forcing on the outer surface of the rear stopper.

[0014] As abovementioned, the single front stopper is formed on the front surface of the body for removing the body with a single-point forcing. In the single-point forcing, there is no need for equal force distribution as in the two-point forcing. The single-point forcing can eliminate the rotation caused by the different forces in the two-point forcing. The replacement of the ink pad container is convenient and stable. In addition, the ink pad container can be applied to multiple embodiments of the stamps, so the applicability of the ink pad container is good.

[0015] Other objectives, advantages and novel features of the invention will become more apparent from the following detailed description when taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings.
