May 25, 1960 30 E6 as 520 3,089,626 POURING SPOUT CONSTRUCTION Ignas B. Kubiliunas, South Boston, Mass., assignor to Polytop Corporation, l-lingharn, Mass., a corporation of Massachusetts Filed May 25, 1960, Ser. No. 31,613 Claims. (1. 222-484) This invention relates to pouring spouts generally made of polyethylene designed for application to bottles by screwing threads or snapping thereon. The cap of the present invention may be used with rigid bottles, as a vent opening is provided enabling air to enter the bottle as the liquid flows out.

In caps of the general type disclosed herein, it is necessary first that the cap, when screwed to the bottle, be liquid tight at the major threads. Secondly, the swinging spout must be so related to the cap that, when in closed position, it will be liquid tight and, when in open position, liquid will flow readily therethr-ough without leaking at the joints. Thirdly, the cap must be of such construction as to lend itself to quantity production by molding in a manner which permits easy and inexpensive assembly of the moving parts.

Caps with swinging spouts are now well known in the art. One of the commonest forms in use is that shown in the patent to Wilson et al., 2,793,795. In this type of construction, the swinging spout has thereon a pair of trunnions which are snapped into corresponding engaging seats in the cap proper. The present construction seeks to eliminate the use of the trunnions which, due to their length and flexiblity, do not hold the elements as tightly together as desired. Another object of the present invention is to provide a construction in which the length of the spout is materially increased, thereby facilitating opening and closing of the spout, as well as making it possible to direct the end of the spout closer to a desired objective.

Accordingly, the structure herein disclosed V contemplates what might be said to be a reversal of conventional practice in that the trunnions instead of being on the spout are on the cap, with corresponding receiving cavities on either side of the spout into which the facing trunnions may be snapped. The opening through the cap is located off center as much as possible, thus allowing an increase in the length of the spout while still keeping it within the confines of the cap diameter when in closed position.

These and other objects of the invention will be more clearly understood as the description proceeds with the aid of the accompanying drawings in which:

FIG. 1 is a plan View of the cap broken away in part with the spout in open position.

FIG. 2 is a vertical section taken on the line 2-2 of FIG. 1.

FIG. 3 is a prospective view of the spout prior to its application to the cap.

FIG. 4 is a horizontal section taken on the line 4-4 of FIG. 2.

FIG. 5 is a view similar to FIG. 2 but with the spout in closed position.

FIG. 6 is an enlarged detail of the sealing element on the spout showing its engagement with the seat at the upper end of the opening through the cap.

FIG. 7 is a vertical section taken on the line 7-7 of FIG. 2 and showing the cap screwed to a bottle.

FIG. 8 is an enlarged detail showing one of the cap trunnions in position in one of the circular side openings of the spout.

FIG. 9 shows a modified form of means for sealing the cap to the bottle top.

EQQ

Referring to FIGS. 1, 2 and 5, the cap is indicated at 2, the spout at 4, the cap threads at '6, and the sealing flange at 8. When the cap 2 is screwed on the bottle 10, as illustrated in FIG. 7, the flange 8 rests evenly and tightly on the top thereof to make to secure seal. In a modified construction, the seal 8 may take another form, as shown at 12 in FIG. 9. In this case, the seal 12 is designed to rest partly within the bottle neck with the sloping portion 13 engaging the inner edge to make a liquid tight connection.

Integral with the cap 2 are a pair of upstanding opposed conically shaped walls 14 and 16 connected at the rear by the wall 18 which has an arcuate cylindrical inner surface. Extending inwardly from the Walls 14 and 16 are a pair of oppositely disposed hooks 20 and 22 having circular bottom areas 21 and sloping opposed faces 23 so designed to facilitate the entrance therebetween of the main body port-ion 24 carrying the spout 4. The opposite faces of the main body 24 are conically shaped to match the interior of walls 14 and 16. These faces have therein two circular depressions 26 and 28 into which the hooks 20 and 22 snap (permitted by the flexible material of which the parts are made) as the main body portion 24 is forced down to the position best shown in FIGS. 4, 7 and 8. When the body portion is in this position, the flat opposed conical portions 30 and 31 of the spout body are in tight nested engagement with the corresponding sides of recess 32 in the cap. Similarly the cylindrical outer wall of body portion 24 rests against the cylindrical inner Wall of the cap.

From the description thus far, it is believed clear that the spout 4, when in open position as shown in FIGS. 2 and 7, may be readily swung downwardly to the position shown in FIG. 5, with the hooks 20 and 22 providing the axes of rotation about which the circular walls of the depressions 26 and 28 turn.

The end 18 of the upstanding wall continues forward under the body of the spout as at 33 in FIG. 2, and in this wall is a rectangular opening 34 which constitutes the outlet through the cap body. The spout 4 has a discharge passage 35 which terminates in a laterally disposed opening 36. Adjacent this passage is a vent opening 38 which permits air to enter the bottle as the liquid leaves it. When the spout is in vertical position, as shown in FIGS. 1, 2 and 7, both discharge and vent passages 34 and 38 are in direct connection with the opening 34. When the bottle is tilted, with the opening 36 in down position, liquid will escape through discharge passages 35 and 36 and air will enter the bottle through vent passage 38.

When the spout 4 is swung to closed position, as shown in FIG. 5, the cap opening 34 is closed. This closure is made leak-proof by the provision on the side of the spout body 24 of a raised surface 40 having four beveled edges 42 extending about the four sides. These beveled edges make tight sealing engagement with the peripheral upper edge 43 of opening 34. This is best shown in FIG. 6.

Since the raised portion 40 is of slightly greater radius than the balance of the spout body, it follows that when it is positioned in opening 34 with the spout closed the body 24 immediately adjacent the beveled edges 42 will be forced upwardly as in FIGS. 5 and 6. This extra pressure against edge 43 insures a tight seal.

As can be seen in FIGS. 1, 2 and 5, the cap opening 34 is substantially oft center. This makes it possible for spout 4 to be of greater length without overhanging the side of cap 2 than would be the case if the opening 34 were directly in the center.

To facilitate opening of the spout, there is a small lip 44 on the end thereof which may be readily engaged by the users finger.

It is my intention to cover all changes and modifications of the examples of the invention herein chosen for purposes of the disclosure which do not constitute departures from the spirit and scope of the invention.

I claim:
