cLosER FOR cans AND THE LIKE. I

. Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented May 28,1912.

Applicatien filed January 29, 1912. Serial-No. 674,125.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM H. PERKINS, a citizen of the United States, residing at Fort Worth, in the county of Tarrant and State of Texas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Closers for Cans and the L1ke,- of which the following 'is a specification.

My invention relates to 'tops or closers for cans and similar articles, and the object is to provide simple and efficient tops or closing devices for shoe polish cans, baking powder cans, soda cans, and cans for vaseline and other articles, and the particular r with the top removed. Fig. 4 is an invertedadvantages of'the lmproved can tops is with cans whlch are in frequent use. The tops can be easily and quickly placed on the cans, but the more important advantage of this invention is that the tops can be easily and quickly removed from the cans. A greatdisadvantage with many tops is that it is diflicult to'remove the tops from the cans.

The object of this invention is to provide a top which'can be easily and quickly placed on the can securely and which can be easily removed and the structure is so arranged that as soon as the top is moved' slightly, it is loosened.

' Another objectis to will close the cans air air tight. v

Other objects and advantages will be fully explained in the following description and the invention will be 1 more particularly pointed out in the claims.

provide a top which tight or substantially Reference is had to. the accompanying.

drawings which form a part of this application and specification. Figure l'is a side elevation of a can with the-top ralsed from the can. Fig. 2 is a vertical section of the can with the top closed thereon.- Fig. 3 is a plan view of the can view of the top.

' Similar characters of reference are used to indicate the same parts throughout th several views.v

A can 1 is shown provided with a slightly bell-shaped upper rim 2 and an annular horizontal bead 3. A top 4 is provided for closing the can. The lower rim 5 of the top is intended to contact with the upper side of the bead 3 of the can, the head 3 being formed in the side wall ofthe can by pressing an annular groove on the inside of the closure against the and with lugs above the formed in the bell portion of the canby pressing or indenting the can, forming two 8 are formed in the lower part of the rim of the top without disturbing the edge of the rim, the studs S-being formed approximately one-sixteenth of an inchfrom the edge of the .rim of the top. The object is to leave a portion of the rim 5 undisturbed so that this portion will make an air-tight bell portion 2 of the can 6-. The upp'er ends 9 of below'the grooves flared so that the studs'S the grooves 6 are will be readily received into the grooves.

When the top is pressed down on thecan the studs 8 will enter the flared portions 9 of the grooves 6 anda pressureon the top with a slight twist will one way or; the other 'make the studs=8 follow the grooves 6 in the can. The rim 5 makes an air-tightclosure with the bell portion of the can and the bead '3." A plurality of two way grooves 6 are direct-ion inwhich the twist is made. The

top can be twisted in either direction. The

studs will be forcedto -follow the grooves and thus wedge the rim or lower edge 5 against the bell portion of the top. The top' does not touch the bell portion of the'can on. the sides except along lower part of the bell portion. See the space '10 between the bell portion and the rim ofthe'top. The object of this construction is that only a small portion of the rim of thetop is inengageinent 3 with'the can and hence the opening will not beso'difiicult. -When the top is to be removed, twist the same. The studs 8 will ride upwardly onthe lowerparts of the grooves 6 and thus forcethe top upwardly I and loosen-thesame so that it can be removed. The to "is made easier of removal by being space from the bell portion or upper portion of the can.

Havmg fully described my invention,

what I claim, is,- g

p 1. The combination ,of a can and a top therefor, said can having a horizontal bead above said bead a bell shaped portion provided with grooves commenoi g at the upper edge-of said-belhshaped portion and branching and curved downward and in opposite directions and terminating above said having a rim provided lower edge thereof formed by inward indentures for engaging said grooves, the lower edge of said rim bead and said top.

60 way beads 7 on the inside of the can. Studs forming an air-tight closure by means of said bead and the part of said can just above said bead.

2. The combination of a can and a top therefor, said can having a horizontal bead and a bell shaped portion above said bead provided with grooves commencing with flared upper portions and branching and curved downwardly and in opposite directions and terminating above said bead and said top having a rim provided with lugs above the lower edge thereof formed by inward indentures for engaging said grooves,

I said rim being spaced from said bell-sha ed portion at the upper part and the lower e ge 15 thereof forming an air-tight closure with said bell-shaped portion below said grooves and with said bead. o

In testimony whereof, I set my hand in the presence of two witnesses, this 26th day 20 of'January, 1912.

WILLIAM HUNTER PERKINS.
