Outlet device for coin payout hoppers

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #4943258.

An outlet device for coin payout hoppers including an outlet chute having a curved coin guiding passage for receiving coins at a lower inlet in the horizontal direction form the coin payout hopper and guiding the coins in the vertical direction and an escalator connected to the outlet chute at the lower end. The outlet chute includes a back side plate and a pair of edge plates to drop a deformed coin out of the curved passage to prevent a coin from jamming in the passages of the outlet chute and the escalator. Further, the escalator includes a coin holding device on the front side plate having an opening for preventing a coin from descending by a wedge action to decrease the weight of upper coins subjected to lower coins, to thereby provide an outlet device having a high lift and high efficiency without coin jamming.
