EDGAR R. LOWEREE, 0F BALTIMORE, MAERYLAND, ASSIGNOR TO CONTINENTAL CAN COMPANY, OF BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, A CORPORATION OF NEW JERSEY.
REGEPTACLE.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, EDGAR R. LOWEREE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Baltimore, in the State of Maryland, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Receptacles, of which the following is a description, reference being had to the accompanying drawing and to the letters and figures of reference marked thereon.
The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in receptacles, and more especially to receptacles having a friction top or cover, which may be used for packing oysters or other articles not requiring hermetic sealing.
The object of the invention primarily is to provide a receptacle of the above character with means for locking the friction top or cover to the receptacle so that said top or cover is not likely to be accident-ally displaced during shipping, and if displaced, either by accident or otherwise, the evidence of unlawful tampering with the contents will appear.
Another object of the invention is to provide a package primarily for the purpose of shipment, but which when such use has been accomplished, may be adapted for domestic use and which will be practically air tight and dust tight.
A further object of the invention is to provide a strong shipment package so constructed that a bail may be applied thereto without the usual protruding connections ordinarily provided for such, and in which the bail rests inside the periphery of the cover.
In its broadest sense, the invention consists in combining with the receptacle and its cover, of a means for locking said cover on said receptacle with means for sealing the locking means, and in a more restricted sense, the means for locking the cover on the receptacle includes the bail and there is provided means for sealing the bail whereby any movement of the bail to release the cover will break the seal.
Furthermore, the invention consists in the various other matters hereinafter described and referred to in the appended claims.
In the accompanying drawings which show by way of illustration certain embodiments of the invention: Figure l is a plan view of a. receptacle having my improvements applied thereto. Fig. 2 is a section on Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed August 9, 1910.
Patented Feb. 6, 1912.
Serial No. 576,372.
the line 2, 2, of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a section on the line 8, 8, 0f-Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is an enlarged section showing the manner of applying the seal to the sealing material. Fig. 5 is a sectional View showing the locking bail raised for the purpose of carrying the receptacle. Fig. 6 is a view similar to Fig. 1, showing another manner of constructing and applying the bail as well as another manner of sealing the bail. Fig. 7 is a side view of Fig. 6. Fig. 8 is a view partly in section showing the locking bail illustrated in Fig. 6 as raised for the purpose of carrying the receptacle. Fig. 9 is a view illustrating one of the lower end portions of the modified form of bail. Fig. 10 is a sectional perspective view of the inside of the upper portion of a can and cover. Figs. 11 and 12 are views similar to Fig. 3 illustrating different positions of application of the ends of the bail.
My receptacle consists of a body portion 1, which as herein shown is cylindrical in form, although it is obvious that said receptacle may be of any desired shape. Said receptacle has an open mouth at its upper end, which is preferably the full size of the receptacle. The receptacle is closed by a friction top or cover 2, which may be of any desired construction, and is preferably formed with an outwardly projecting flange constructed to frictionally seat within the body portion of the receptacle. In this construction, the top or cover will have on its outer face a recess. These parts are of the usual construction in friction top receptacles, and will not need further disclosure.
It is found that sometimes during shipping, a cover held on by friction solely is accidentally removed or loosened, so that the contents of the receptacle will spoil or be wasted. Then again, it has been found in practice that it is desirable to provide some means for fastening the friction top cover on to the receptacle which will prevent the unauthorized removal of the contents without visible evidence of such removal; otherwise the receptacle may be refilled and closed and sold as an original package put up by the parties who are identified by the particular shape, construction or by certain markings on the package.
In order to overcome the above objections, I have provided my receptacle with a locking bail 4. A perforation 5 is formed in the 5 when the cover is crowded into the mouth of the receptacle to seal the same, the perforations are in alinement. The bail 4 is provided with bent ends 7, which may be readily sprung into the openings or perforations 5 and 6. The spring in the bail will hold these bent ends in said perforations, and will lock the top or cover on to the receptacle, so that it cannot be accidentally V removed therefrom. Said bail 4 is preferably curved or shaped so that it may be turned to a horizontal position, as shown in Fig. 2, and seat within the recess formed in the outer face of the cover. By so constructing the hail the same does not in any way 7 interfere with the packing of the receptacles in shipping, as one receptacle may be set on top of another, if desired.
After the bail has been placed on the receptacle so as to lock parts together, and
turned to horizontal position, a sealing material 8'may be placed on the inner face of the cover, so as to cover the end of the bail and the perforations extending through the cover and receptacle; This sealing material serves two purposes,first to seal the receptacle from any leakage which might occur through the perforations in the cover and receptacle; and second, to prevent the removal of the bail without breaking the seal,
thus giving visible evidence of such removal.
After the sealing material has been placed on the cover, any desired characteristic mark may be impressed on the sealing material by the original packer and this would readily show whether or not the package had been opened and refilled, or re-sealed. It will be understood that for greater security a sealing composition may be applied between the side walls of the cover and can.
The bail 4 may be readily turned to vertical position, as shown in Fig. 5, to afiord a convenient means for carrying the package. After the package is emptied and the cover removed, the bail may again be attached to the'receptacle to form a pail, if desired.
In Figs. 6 to 10 inclusive, a modification is illustrated in which instead of there being provided bent ends 7 of thebail 4, which are simply sprung into the openings or perf0ra tions 5and 6, there is provided a modified form of bail, the end of which 7 is shown in detail in Fig. 9 and is sprung into the oblong perforations 5, 6. In this instance, instead of the sealing composition 8 being applied to cover the ends of the bail protruding through the openings 5 and 6, such sealing material 8 is applied preferably as shown in Fig. 6, namely, at about the center of the bail, although of course, it may be applied at any other point or points. Vhile this modification just described comes within the scope of the broad invention of sealing the locking means which holds the cover on to the receptacle, whether said locking means is a bail or not, in its specific form, itmay in some instances be found desirable to provide a bail, the lower ends of which cannot be forced out of the perforations when the bail is in closed position as might be possible in the construction shown in Fig. 1; for will be seen that by sealing the bail itself in the manner indicated in Fig. 6, the particular style of bail end 7 cannot be removed from the openings without breaking the seal 8 and raising the bail substantially to upright position.
In Figs. 11 and 12, I have shown modifications simply of the position of the bail end 7 and perforations 5 and 6 with the corresponding change in the manner of application, and the amount of, sealing material used.
It is obvious that minor changes in the details of construction may be made, without departing from the spirit of my invention.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
The combination of a receptacle, a friction cover therefor having an outwardly projecting flange constructed to frictionally engage the interior of said body portion, said body portion and said flange having alined apertures, a bail having its ends bent to engage said apertures for securing the cover to the body portion, said flange on the cover forming a recess in the outer face thereof in which said bail may be housed during shipping, and a sealing substance attached to the cover within the recess thereof at a plurality of points, including the apertures, which substance serves to seal the can and make a more perfect closure at the apertures through which the bail passes, and whereby any movement of the bail to release the cover will break the sealing substance.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature, in presence of two witnesses.
EDGAR R. LOVVEREE.
