  Jiffy 3 Bottom Carrier Side.JPG - JUSTRITE JIFFY 3 BOTTOM CARRIER - Jiffy 3-bottom carbide carrier, carrier top is nickel-plated brass, bottoms are brass, 6 in. long with belt clip at one end, carrier is soldered to 3 tops to mate bottoms, marked PATENTED on top, Jiffy bottoms are marked JIFFY (in fancy script) CONTAINER JUSTRITE MFG. CO. PAT APLD. FOR, allbottoms in unfired condition, ex-Bob Schroth collection [The Jiffy container was an innovation by Justrite to remove the base without using screw threads. Termed the helix lock, the bottom could be removed by a half turn thus avoiding the corrosion experienced with threaded bases. The lamp was advertised by Justrite as early as 1916 and was marketed through 1919. When chief Justrite designer Augie Hansen left the company in 1920, the Jiffy was no longer advertised in the Justrite catalogs. However, Jiffy lamps were still being sold in different variations at least through 1922. Since the bottom must be removed to see the helix lock attachment, Jiffy lamps look very similar to other Justrite lamps. Since they were apparently not a successful product with the mining community, the limited production numbers coupled with the fancy Jiffy stamping on the bottom of the base make them highly sought by collectors.  The patented marking on the top most likely references Patent No. 1,137,755 awarded to Augie Hansen of ChicagoMay 4, 1915 for a multiple carbide carrier and assigned to the Justrite Mfg. Co.  Other Justrite carbide carriers were manufactured by Justrite and reference this patent.]
