Title: Timed aerosol spray dispenser

Abstract: A timed spray dispenser for distributing a liquid deodorizer from an aerosol spray can, using a finger actuated spray valve, that incorporates a structural housing (22) with a radial cavity (28) of a size to accommodate the spray can. A lever arm (42) pivots on the housing and encompasses the spray valve on one end. An eccentric cam (56) engages the other end of the lever arm and raises the arm when the cam is rotated with a motor (62). A timer (68) electrically attached to the motor is employed when specific time duration and frequency is required by the dispenser. Height adjustment of the dispenser is achieved to accommodate various sizes of cans by separating the housing from the base (24) using posts (32) that slide into bores (36) in the housing and securing the adjustment using thumb screws (38). A second embodiment provides height adjustment using a fixed height housing and a sliding shelf (74). A third embodiment adds an enclosure (29) that covers the entire dispenser and an optional remote or manually actuated reset switch (84) to operate the dispenser from the switch or from a remote location.
