Dec. 31, 1929. T. B. BRADLEY BOTTLE OPENING'DEVICE Filed Feb. 11, 1929 gwoenloc I .B ,Bradlgl,

duomq Patented Dec. 31, 1929 STATES THOMAS B. BRADLEY, OF DU BOIS, PENNSYLVANIA BOTTLE-OPENING DEVICE Application filed February 11, 1929. Serial No. 339,166.

The present invention relates to improvep ments in bottle openers and has reference more particularly to a device or appliance by means of which the ordinary corrugated caps as applied to bottles may be removed in an expeditious and satisfactory manner and without any danger of breaking the bottle or injuring the user of the device.

Another important object of the invention is to provide a bottle opening device of the above-mentioned character that can be easily placed in engagement with a bottle for quickly removing the corrugated cap and constitutes the closure, the device being at all times 1 positive and efiicient in its operation.

Another important object of the invention is to provide a bottle opening device of the above-mentioned character which is simple in construction, inexpensive, strong and du-' rable and further well adapted to the purposes for which it is designed.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent from the following description when taken in connection with the accompanying drawing.

In the accompanying drawing wherein like reference characters indicate corresponding parts throughout the same;

Figure 1 is a side elevation of the bottle opening device embodying my invention showing the application of the same.

Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view taken approximately on the line 2-2 of Figure 1 looking in the direction of the arrows; and

Figure 3 is a top plan view of the device per se.

In the drawing, wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown a preferred embodiment of my invention, the numerall designates generally my improved bottle opening device,

the same comprising a stationary lever 2 and is formed at its inner end with a yoke or fork 3, the purpose of which will be presently described. The outer end of this horizontaily disposed lever 2 is slightly enlarged to form a handle portion 4 and this handle portion is dished as more clearly disclosed in Figure 1.

A forked upright 5 is formed on the lever 2 at a point adjacent the yoke or fork 3 and ivotally mounted between the furcations of this forked upright 5 is the arm 6, the pivotal connection for this arm being indicated at 7 The arm is preferably pivotally supported in the forked upright at a point adjacent its outer end while the inner end of the arm terminates in the diverging downwardly curved fingers designated by the reference character 8. The free ends of these fingers terminate in the hooks 9 and are adapted to engage so with the edge of the crimped or corrugated bottle cap in the manner also to be presently described.

A pair of'apertured cars 10 depends from the opposite sides of the intermediate portion of the lever 2 and pivotally mounted between the depending ears 10 is the movable lever 11, the pivotal connection for said lever being indicated at 12. The lever 11 is of a length less than that of the stationary lever 2 and the outer portion of the lever 11 is also enlarged to provide a handle 13 that is also dished so as to be complemental to the handle4 of the stationary lever 2.

The inner end of the movable lever 11 is 7 operatively connected to the outer end portion of the vertically swinging arm 6 through the medium of the links 14 and in Figures 1 and 2 of the drawings, there is clearly disclosed the connection between the movable so lever and the arm 6. These links are disposed on opposite sides'of the lever 2 and are pivotally connected at their respective ends to the movable lever and the vertically swinging arm.

An expansible coiled spring 15 is interposed between the complementary dished handles 4 and 13 for normally holding the parts in the position shown in the full line in Figure 1 so that said handles are normally spaced apart.

The use of my improved bottle opening device may be briefly stated as fqllows. The lever 2 has its yoke 3 disposed around the mouth of an ordinary bottle A for disposition directly above the shoulder B and below the corrugated flange formed on the closure cap C. The hooks 9 engage with the flange cap in the manner as shown in Figure 1 and obviously by grasping the handles 4 and 13 103 and moving the handle 13 upwardly toward the handle 4 against the tension of the coiled spring 15, the lever will assume the position shown in dotted lines in Figure 1 so as to effoot the upward swinging movement of the arm 6 into the position alsoshown in the dotted lines in Figure 1. This will result in the hooks or jaws 9 turning up the corrugated flange formed with the cap so as to loosen and remove the same from the bottle in an obvious manner.

A bottle opening device of this character will enable the crimped or corrugated closure caps to be readily and easily removed from bottles without any danger of the bottles becoming broken. The simplicity oi: my device enables the same to be easily handled and op erated and furthermore the same will be strong and durable and all times positive and eflicient in carrying out the purposes for which it is designed.

While I have shown the preferred embodiment of my invention, it is to be understood that minor changes in the size, shape and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the appended claims.

WVhat I claim is:

1. In abottle opening device, a lever, a yoke formed on one end thereof for engagement around the neck of the bottle adjacent its mouth, the other end of the lever providing a handle, an upright formed on the lever adjacent the yoke, a vertically swinging arm mounted on the upright, a hook formed on one end of the arm for engagement under the edge of a bottle cap providing a closure for the mouth of the bottle, an additional lever pivotally suspended from the aforementioned lever, one end thereof providing a handle for cooperation with the aforementioned handle, and means for operatively connecting the other end of the pivoted lever with the adj a cent end of the pivoted arm for actuating the latter, and an expansible coiled spring interposed between the handle for normall holding the vertically swinging arm in a lowered position.-

2. In a bottle opening device of the class described, a substantially horizontally disposed lever, a yoke formed on the inner end thereof for engagement partly around the neck of a bottle adjacent its mouth, the outer end of the lever being formed with a handle portion, an upright formed on the lever adjacent the yoke, an arm pivotally supported adjacent one end on said upright, said arm being adapted for disposition across the top of a bottle cap secured on the mouth 01."? the bottle, downwardly extending fingers diverging from one end of the arm, the lower ends of the fingers terminating in hooks for engagement with the edge of the cap, an additional lever pivotally attached to the horizontal lever for disposition belowthe same,

one end of the pivoted lever providing a handle for cooperation with the aforementioned handle, and means for operatively connecting the other end of the pivoted lever with the pivoted end of the arm.

3. In a bottle opening device of the class described, a substantially horizontally disposed lever, a yoke formed on the inner end thereof for engagement partly around the neck of a bottle adjacent its mouth, the outer end of the lever being formed with a handle portion, an upright formed on the lever adjacent the yoke, an arm pivotally supported adjacent one end on said upright, said arm being adapted for disposition across the top of a bottle cap secured on the mouth of the bottle, downwardly extending fingers diverging from one end of the arm, the lower ends of the fingers terminating in hooks for engagement with the edge of the cap, an additional lever pivotally attached to the horizontal lever for disposition below the same, one end of the pivoted lever providing a handle for cooperation with the aforementioned handle, and means for operatively connecting the other end of the pivoted lever with the pivoted end of the arm, and an expansible coiled spring interposed between the handle for normally holding the pivoted arm in its lowered position.

In testimony whereof I atfix my signature.

THOMAS E. BRADLEY.
