ALFRED INGRAM AND HARRY INGRAM, OF BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, ASSIGNORS TO INGRAMS INCORPORATED, OF NEW YORK, N. Y., A CORPORATION OF NEW YORK.
CLOSURE FOR JARS, BOTTLES, AND OTHER RECEPTACLES.
Application filed September 8, 1919. Serial No. 322,402.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, ALFRED INGRAM and HARRY INGRAM, citizens of the United States,
.and residents of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Closures for Jars, Bottles, and Other Re ceptacles, of which the following is a specification.
The invention resides more particularly in a novel closure and container, the container being a jar or bottle or other receptacle made of glass or other material, and the closure being in three parts comprising a cap, a securing band therefor and a gasket interposed between an outwardly extending portion of the cap and an inwardly extending portion of said band and in part engaging the lip of the container. ()ne desirable feature of the cap is that after the band has been removed, the cap may be lifted from the container and thereafter said cap may be reversed in position and reapplied to the receptacle with its domed portion entering the mouth thereof for temporarily closing the same. A further desirable feature of the closure is that the raw edges of the cap and band are protected by the gasket from contact with the contents of the receptacle, this being true both in the original application ofthe closure to the receptacle and also when the securing band has been removed and the cap is reversed and has its domed portion inserted into the mouth of the receptacle. lVe contemplate the use of the closure for sealing receptacles regardless of the contents of the same, but we regard the closure as particularly useful in sealing receptacles containing pickles and the like or materials which are in portions removed from time to time from the receptacle until the latter has been emptied.
The invention will be fully understood from the detailed description hereinafter presented, reference being had to the accompanying. drawings, in which:
Fig. 1 is a central vertical section through the upper portion of a receptacle having applied thereon the closure of our invention, said closure being shown in its initial condition preparatory to being looked upon the receptacle;
Fig. 2 is a like view of the same illustrate ing the closure in its final sealing position looked upon the receptacle;
.Fig. 3 is a corresponding view showing the domed cap of the receptacleas having been freed from the locking band and reversed in position and reapplied to the receptacle;
Fig. 4 is a top view of the closure;
Fig. 5 is a side elevation of the same and illustrates a portion of the neck of the receptacle; a
Fig. 6 is an enlarged vertical section through a portion of the closure and receptacle and corresponds, except as to scale, with one side of Fig. 1, and
Fig. 7 is an enlarged vertical sect-ion through a portion of the receptacle and closure and corresponds, except as to scale, with one side of Fig. 2.
In the drawings, 10 designates the receptaole or container, which may be of glass or other material, and said receptacle has around its mouth portion 11 an annular bead 12 affording at its upper edge the usual broad flat horizontal lip and at its lower edge a shoulder 13.
The closure comprises a cap 14, a locking band 15 and a gasket 16. The cap 14 is in one integral piece of metal or other suitable material and has a domed central portion 17, vertical sides 18 and a lateral annular flange 19 extending outwardly from the lower edges of the sides 18. The domed portion 17 of the cap is so proportioned that it may, when the cap is reversed, snugly enter the mouth portion 11 of the receptacle 10, as shown in Fig. 3, and the flange 19 of said cap is of proper dimensions, as shown in Fig. 1, to seat upon the upper edges or lip of the receptacle and preferably without extending to the outer periphery thereof. The cap 14 is a reversible one piece top and of utility in either position.
The gasket 16 is a flat horizontal band of rubber or other suitable packing material and is placed upon the flange 19 of the cap and the lip of the receptacle 1(), being suflicient in extent to engage both said flange and, outwardly therefrom, said lip.
The locking band 15 is circular and formed with a vertical side or skirt portion 20, an upper inwardly extending horizontal flange 21 and a tab or fingerull 22 which is in close relation to a wea ened-line 23 formed in the skirt portion 20.
The band 15 closely encompasses the vertical sides of the annular head 12, and its V flange 21 engages the top of the gasket 16 and/extends inwardly into reasonably close relation to the vertical sides 18 of the cap 14, said flange 21 bearing upon substantially the full width of the gasket 16. The skirt portion 20 of the band initially projects below the annular bead 12, as shown in Figs. 1 and 6, and when said band is applied -to position the lower edge portion thereof is bent inwardly against the shoulder 13 furnished by the annular head 12, thereby pressing the flange 21 against the gasket 16, locking the cap 14 in position and said band becoming itself locked in position. The pressure of the flange 21 against the gasket 16, due to the bending inwardly of the lower portions of the skirt against the shoulder 13 of the receptacle, serves to deform the gasket 16 from its normal condition shown'in Fig. 6 to that illustrated in Fig. 7, in which it will be seen that the gasket has been pressed downwardly against the lip of the receptacle and laterally against the vertical sides 18 of the cap and against the band 15 and also against the outer vertical edge of the flange 19 of the cap 14, thereby covering said edge and preventing any contact therewith of the contents of the receptacle. The inner raw edge of the flange 21 of the band 15 is, by means of the gasket 16, entirely removed from any danger of getting into contact with the contents of the receptacle. In accordance with our construction the receptacle becomes very efficiently sealed, the sealing zone extending over the upper and lower broad surfaces of the gasket 16 and also along the outer and inner vertical peripheral edges of said gasket. said edges int-he vertical deformation of the gasket being firmly pressed against the band 15 and vertical v sides 18 respectively.
In assembling and applying the parts of the closure, the cap 14 is first placed upon the receptacle either with or without the gasket 16, and if the said cap is placed on the receptacle, in the absence of said gasket, said gasket will then be applied upon the cap, surrounding the dome 17 thereof and engaging the flange 19, and thereupon the locking band 15 will be applied over the domed vtop 17 of the cap and upon the gasket, the whole then being as represented in Figs. 1 and 6. Thereafter the locking band will be pressed downwardly against the gasket and its lower edge portion will be firmly pressed inwardly below the shoulder 13 of the annular bead 12, thereby sealing the receptacle and the parts then being in the relation illustrated in Fig. 7.-
IVhen it is desired to unseal the receptacle the owner will pull on the finger-piece or tab 22 and tear the locking band upwardly along the weakened line 28. This having been done the locking band 15 may be conveniently. removed, leaving the cap 14 and gasket 16 upon the lip of the receptacle. The cap 14 and gasket 16 may then be elevated, upwardly and the mouth of the receptacle exposed. After such portion of the contents of the receptacle as may be desired has been removed therefrom, the cap 14 and gasket 16 may be turned upside down or reversed in position and reapplied to the receptacle for temporarily closing the same, said cap 14 and gasket 16 then taking the position shown in Fig. 3. In the position -of the cap and gasket illustrated in Fig. 3 it will be noted that the raw edge of the flange 19 of the cap is, by means of the gasket, removed from contact with the contents of the receptacle.
constitutes a temporary closure. The cap 14, with the gasket 16 and locking band 15, serves as apermanent closure until the receptacle is in the hands of a consumer, and thereafter said cap and gasket serve as a temporary closure for the receptacle until the contents of the receptacle have been consumed.
What we claim as our invention and desire to secure by Letters-Patent, is:
In combination with a receptacle having a broad flat uniform lip at its mouth defin- The cap 14 when reversed, in position and reapplied to the receptacle ing the top thickness of the receptacle and below said lip a shoulder, a. closure therefor comprising a cap having an upwardly domed central portion, substantially vertical sides at said portion and a lateral flange extending outwardly from the lower edge of said sides and seated on said lip, a flat gasket on said flange and on said lip outwardly beyond said flange, and a removable locking band having at its upper edge an inwardly extending flange engaging the upper surface of said gasket and at i s lower edge bein extended under and engaging said she der with binding effect, said gasket being held deformed by said band and sealing against the side and to of the same, the vertical sides an lateral flange of said cap and said lip outwardly beyond said lateral flange, said domed portion of the cap being definitely proportioned to the mouth of the receptacle and adapted on the removal of said band and the reversal of the cap to closely enter said mouth and afford a temporary closure for the receptacle.
