.Pnamunm. WASulMcr UNITED STATES LOUIS SKALA, 0F ROSEIBUD, TEXAS.
BOTTLE-CAP.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Jan. '7, 1919.
Application filed March 9, 1918. Serial No. 221,414.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, LoUIs SKALA, a su ject of the Emperor of Austria, resident of Rosebud, county of Falls, and State of Texas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bottle-Caps, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in bottle, jar or like caps, and has as its special objectthe provision of means whereby the cap or stopper may be firmly clamped in position in the neck or mouth of the bottle or raised therefrom.
A further object is to provide a cap which is easy to construct and comprised of material which is relatively non-fragile and a still further object is to provide means whereby the cap is held to the neck of the bottle so that it may not become lost or displaced therefrom when in a raised position.
These and other like objects are attained by the novel construction and combination of parts hereinafter described, and shown in the accompanying drawing, forming a material part of this disclosure and in which Figure l is a side elevational view showing a conventional type of bottle and indicating the application of the invention.
Fig. 2 is a similar side elevational view, but taken in a different plane.
Fig. 3 is a similar side elevational view to that of Fig. 2 but showing the cap in a raised or released position, and
Fig. 4 is a vertical sectional View taken through the cap, bottle neck, and attached parts.
In the drawing, there is shown an ordinary form of bottle having a body 10, and neck 11, having thickened upper walls through which passes the opening 12.
A stopper 14 is provided for the bottle, the same here shown to be made of wood having a conical shaped head and a reduced or neck portion 15, adapted to enter the mouth opening 12 of the bottle, there being interposed below the flanged portion 16, and extreme upper edge of the bottle, a ring or washer 17, acting as a gasket the same being made of a relative pliable material.
Passing transversely through the upper coned portion 14 of the stopper head is a wire 20, having angularly extending arms 21, ending in inturned, parallel extremities 22, which are freely pivoted in eyes 24, extending from a loop element 25, used as a lever handle in raising or lowering the stopper.
Formed with the eyes 24: and angularly disposed to the loop 25 are arms 26, having ou-tturned ends 28, engageable with eyes 30,
formed integrally with a wire 31, curved to surround the neck of the bottle, one of the ends of the wire being formed into an eye 32, into which the outer end 33 of the wire extends and is locked therein.
Formed in the neck of the bottle are two radial recesses respectively 35 and 36, and entered in the upper recess 35, is the bent end 37, of a wire having spaced coils 38, tightly engaged with the neck of the bottle, the lower end 39 of the wire being bent and entered in the opening or recess 36, it being understood that the coiled wire 38, is held in intimate contact with the neck of the bottle and acts as a screw thread with which may be engaged with the wire ring 31, in
such manner that the ring and stopper carried thereby may be removed bodily from the bottle or engaged therewith in an obvious manner.
In operation, the coil 38, having been secured to the neck of the bottle, the ring 31, is entered in the uppermost coil and turned about the neck of the bottle until it has passed the projection 39, at which time the stopper may be inserted in the bottle, by properly manipulating the same, in combination with operating the loop 25, which obviously when raised, as shown in Fig. 3 raises the stopper, and conversely, when drawn down to the side of the bottle, forces the stopper firmly into position, compressing the pacln'ng ring 17 and maintaining the contents of the bottle in a tight condition.
When it is desired to remove some of the contents of the bottle, the loop 25 is merely raised, permitting the cap to be removed and such quantity of the contents poured out as may be desired, while at any time the cap may be clamped into position or the entire structure removed by rotating the same with reference to the coil 38.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is.
A bottle stopper of the character described, comprising a conical head, a reduced neck adapted to enter the mouth of a bottle, a wire ring surrounding the neck of the bottle, an eye formed at one end of the wire, the other end of said Wire being locked in said eye, a coiled Wire, having one end entered into an upper radial recess in the bottle neck and its other end into a lower radial recess of the bottle neck, spaced Wire coils intermediate both ends, said Wire coils being adapted to be engaged with said Wire ring, and a means combined With said Wire ring for operating said stopper, said ring and stopper being adapted to be removed 10 bodily from the bottle or engaged there With substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have aflixed my signature.
