JAMES MCMILLEN, OF ALLEGHENY, PENNSYLVANIA.
FRUlT-JAR.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 341,341, dated May 4, 1886.
Application filed September 9, 1885. Serial No. 176,576.
To aZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JAMES MOMILLEN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Allegheny, in the county of Allegheny and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in'Fruit Jars and Gans,of which the following is a specification, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings.
My invention relates to an improvement in fruit jars and cans; and it consists in the combination of thejar, provided with a flange, on which are formed inclines, and grooved neck, with a rubber packing which is placed in the groove, the cover, and a bent wire for securing the cover in position, as will be more fully described hereinafter.
To hermetically close fruitjars or cans, many devices have been adopted that differ essentially from my invention; but some ap proach it more or less, and among them are those that surround the neck of the jar by a band over which the cover is placed. The neck of the latter kind is made conical to increase the resistance when the top is pressed down and the band is confined in a recess, leaving a space between the band and the body of thejar unoccupied, while the flange of the cover rests on a shoulder around the neck. The conical form of the neck has a tendency to let the cover slip off, and the close contact of the cover with the shoulder upon which it rests makes the removal of the cover difficult. To avoid these objections is the ob- 5 ject of the present invention, which is here- 0 jar.
inafter described.
The accompanying drawings represent my nvention.
Figure 1 shows the cover in its place on the Fig. 2 represents the cover detached. Fig; 3 is a vertical section of the upper portion of ajar.
A represents the cover of the jar. Its top a is level or flat, and its rim or flange b at a right angle with the top. The width of the flange does not exceed half an inch, and has on its edge a rounding head, 0, to add strength and prevent expansion.
The material employed for the cover may be sheet metal or glass of sufficient thickness to resist the force required to press it firmly (No model.)
top rests on the neck, while the head 0 on the flange does not touch the body ofthejar, but
remains free.
Surrounding the upper end of the neck is a narrow band or projection, d, that, when the cover is placed over it. fits in the flange I). Below the projection 01 the neck continues Vertically downward to the body J of the jar, and terminates at a flange, f, surrounding the upper portion of thejar. On the part of the neck between the projection d and the flange f a rubber band, h, is placed, that not only wholly occupies that space, but its thickness slightly protrudes from it, so that when the cover is pressed dow n the band is thereby compressed, forming a reliable hold to the vertical sides of the cover. The flange faround the jar is of uniform thickness, excepting at two places diametrically opposite one another, where it gradually increases, and again diminishes in thick;
ness, forming four inclines, 9, (two pairs on each side of the neck,) for the purpose of increasing the pressnre of a removable wire, h, passing over the cover, having both its ends bent to clasp the flange. This wire h is passed over the cover from the sides, and its ends are made to catch under the two inclines 9.
Having thus described my invention, -I claim- In a fruit'jar, the combination of the jar .I, provided with the flange f, on which are formed the inclines g, and the grooved neck d, with the rubber packing h, the cover A, and the wire h, substantially as shown and described.
In testimony whereof I afiix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
