BOTTLE CAP REMOVER Filed Dec. 3, 1934 WITNESSES INVENTOR M Shn fZLenhofi" $67 BY WWW Patented June 30, 1936 paired sTATEs PATIENT oFFicE 2 Claims.

This invention relates to a bottle cap remover, an object of the invention being to provide a remover constituting a fixed part of the ordinary crimped bottle cap and which normally lies in an inoperative position beside the neck of the bottle and can be moved to a position at approximately right angles to the cap, and when upward pressure is applied on the remover the cap will be removed from the bottle.

A further object is to provide a bottle'cap remover which is always ready for use and which dispenses with the necessity of providing a separate tool to remove the cap of the bottle.

With th se and other objects in view, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction and combinations and arrangements of parts, all of which will be more fully hereinafter described and pointed out in the claims.

In the accompanying drawing- Figure 1 is a View in elevation illustrating the remover in position to remove the cap;

Figure 2 is a perspective view of the cap with the remover attached thereto;

Figure 3 is a perspective view of the remover;

Figure 4 is a fragmentary view in section illustrating the cap and remover attached;

Figure 5 is a view in side elevation illustrating the cap in position on the bottle with the remover located beside the neck of the bottle;

Figure 6 is a view similar to Figure 5 taken at right angles thereto; and

Fig. '7 is a view similar to Figure 4 illustrating a modification.

i represents the ordinary crimped bottle cap having a cork cushion 2 secured therein and adapted to engage the end of the bottle neck 3. To this cap l I secure my improved cap remover, which is of light sheet metal and which is of general channel shape throughout the major portion of its length. This channel shaped remover constitutes what may be termed a base 4 between flanges 55, said flanges tapering to one end of the remover and at their widest ends notched or recessed, as shown at 6, and the edges of the flanges 5-5 are turned over, as shown at l, to give suifloient rigidity thereto. The extremities of these turned over portions at the wider ends of the flanges are extended and turned back, as shown at 8, to strengthen the points or corners of the flanges and constitute engaging portions to engage the cap, as indicated most clearly in Figure l of the drawing.

The base or intermediate portion of the remover is extended beyond the flanges 5 and constitute a bendable tongue 9. This tongue prothat it insures the bending of the tongue at this point when the remover is bent at right angles to the cap, which is the open position illustrated in Figure l of the drawing.

As a modification of this idea it is within the scope of the invention to form the remover as an integral part of the cap. This is illustrated in Figure '7 of the drawing.

When the bottles are filled and capped the remover is located beside the neck of the bottle, as illustrated in Figures 5 and 6 of the drawing. In this position the remover will occupy but little space and when it is desired to remove the cap the remover is bent, that is the tongue portion 9 of the remover is bent, bringing the ends or corners 8 of the flanges 5 into contact with the upper face of the cap at spaced apart points above the top of the cap and inwardly from the edge thereof. The corners 8 form fulcrum points which, when the neck of the bottle is clasped in the hand and the free end of the remover is forced by the thumb upwardly and inwardly over the top of the bottle, exert a downward pressure on the cap. Continued movement of the lever results in the rolling up of the edge of the cap to free it.

While I have illustrated what I believe to be the preferred embodiment of the invention, it is to be distinctly understood that various slight changes may be made with regard to the form and arrangement of parts without departing from my invention, and hence I do not limit myself to the precise details set forth but consider myself at liberty to make such changes and alterations as fairly fall within the spirit and scope of the claims.

I claim:

1. The combination with a crimped metal bottle cap, of a cap remover, said remover having a bendable tongue provided with a portion extending underneath the cap and being secured thereto, a base integral with said tongue and having laterally extending flanges, one end of each flange being provided with a fulcrum point, said tongue having an integral extension between the bottom edge of the cap and the base of 'sufficient length to bring the fulcrum points above the top iiof the cap and inwardlyfrom the edge'thereof when the tongue is bent, said base constituting a lever for rolling'up the edge :of the cap to free it. l

2. She combination with a crimped metal bet- 7 Me cajo, of a (cap remover, said remover having a bendable tongue provided with a portion e}:- tendii l g underneath the cap and being secured thereto and having an opening in the gtongue to facilitate bending thereof, a base integral with said tongue and having laterally extending fiariges, one end of each flange being provided with a. fulcrum point, said tongue having an integral extension Between the bottom edge of thecap and the base of suificient length to bring the fulcrum points above the top of jthe capand inwardly from the edge thereof when the tongue is bent, said remover constituting'ga, lever for rolling up the edge of the cap to free it.
