Abstract

An aerosol container and closure cap unit therefor are provided for closing an aerosol container and operating the valvecontrolled aerosol-conducting and discharge nozzle member of an aerosol container, and includes means for actuating the valvecontrolled aerosol-conducting and discharge nozzle member and the valve means therefor; a generally cylindrical closure cap housing mounted on the top wall of the generally cylindrical body of the said aerosol container, and including a top wall and a depending generally annular sidewall; manually operable control means movably mounted in the generally cylindrical closure cap housing for moving the said actuating means into engagement with the said valve-controlled aerosol-conducting and discharge nozzle member including a first manually operable control means mounted at one point on the wall of the closure cap housing, and a second manually operable control means mounted at another point on the wall of the closure cap housing. The valve-controlled aerosolconducting and discharge nozzle member is moved into engagement with the valve means therefor to open the latter by simultaneously manipulating both of the manually operable control means and the valve-controlled aerosol-conducting and discharge nozzle member cannot be operated without operating both of such manually operable control means simultaneously. The construction and arrangement of the closure cap unit are such that the valvecontrolled aerosol-conducting and discharge nozzle member cannot be manipulated into open or discharge position by small children since it has been found that small children cannot operate simultaneously both of the manually operable control means as is required for manipulating the actuating means for the valvecontrolled aerosol-conducting and discharge nozzle member into effective or discharge position.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION A preferred embodiment of the new aerosol container and safety closure cap unit therefor is illustrated in the drawings, where it is generally indicated at 10, and embodies a generally cylindrical aerosol container 11 of conventional design, which includes a top wall portion 12 having an annular mounting groove 13 provided therein. The new aerosol safety closure cap unit is generally'indicated at 14, and includes a generally cylindrical closure cap housing 15 which is preferably molded of a single unitary body of rubber or other suitable synthetic plastic resinous material, and includes a top wall I6 and a vertically extending generally cylindrical or annular-shaped side wall 17 having a lower end portion 18 which is adapted to be frictionally fitted into the annular mounting groove 13 in the top wall portion 12 of the aerosol container 11 so as to removably mount the closure cap housing unit 14 thereon, as is well understood in the art.

The aerosol container 11 includes aerosol nozzle valve means, generally indicated at 19, and which is of conventional design, and includes a tubular valve member 20 which is movably mounted centrally in the top wall 12 of the aerosol container 1 l, and has a centrally arranged passage 21 therein (FIG. 6). The aerosol container 11 includes a valve-controlled aerosol-conducting and discharge nozzle, generally indicated at 22, and which valve-controlled aerosol-conducting and discharge nozzle 22 may be molded of rubber or synthetic plastic resinous material, or other suitable material, and includes a body 23 having a depending portion 24 which has a centrally arranged vertically extending passage 25 therein (FIG. 6). The body portion 23 of the nozzle 22 has a centrally arranged horizontal passage 26 therein which communicates at its inner end with the centrally arranged vertically extending passage 25 (FIG. 6). The horizontal passage 26 has a discharge outlet or orifice 27 which is formed in the outer end portion 28 of the body 23 and the outer end portion 28 of the body 23 is arranged in an opening 29 which is formed inthe sidewall 17 of the closure cap housing 15. Thus, the passages 21-25-26-27 provide a nozzle outlet and discharge passage for the flow of aerosol from the body of the aerosol container 11 to the exterior of the closure cap housing 15.

The new aerosol safety container closure unit 14 includes an operating unit, which is generally indicated at 30, and which embodies actuating means for actuating the valve-controlled nozzle 22 and the operating unit 30 also embodies manually operable control means for manually controlling and manipulating the said actuating means. Thus the operating unit 30 includes a body 46 (FIG. 5) which may be molded from a single piece of suitable flexible, resilient material such as rubber, or flexible, resilient synthetic plastic resinous material, or the like. The body 45 of the operating unit 30 is generally U-shaped in form (FIGS. 2, 3, 4 and 5) and a transversely extending bridge portion 32 which extends between the supporting arms 31 at the top of the latter. Each of the supporting arms 31 has formed integrally therewith on its inner surface a right-angularly (in use) radially inwardly and horizontally extending actuating member 34 for the valvecontrolled aerosol-conducting and discharge nozzle 22. Each of the supporting arms 31 has formed integrally therewith on its radially (in use) outer surface a first manually operable control means for the actuating member 34, and this first manually operable control means includes a pair of manually operable control members 35, each of which is provided with a pair of vertically extending slots or keyways 36. Each of the first manually operable control members 35 has a lower end portion 37 which extends below the lower end of the corresponding supporting am 31. A pair of circumferentially spaced vertically extending openings or slots 38 are provided in the generally annular sidewall 17 of the closure cap housing 15 and are preferably spaced circumferentially lapart thereon. Each of these openings or slots 38 opens at its lower end onto the bottom edge 39 of the sidewall I7 of the closure cap housing 15, and each of the openings or slots 38 is defined by a marginal edge portion 45 which is formed in the sidewall 17 (FIG. 7).

The operating unit 30 embodies a second manually operable control means for the actuating members 34 and this second manually operable control means for the actuating members 34 is in the form of a buttonlike manually operable control member 41 which is mounted in a centrally arranged generally annular opening 42 which is formed in the top wall 16 of the closure cap housing I5. This second manually operable and buttonlike control member 41 has a depending neck portion 43 of reduced diameter, which provides a third and vertically extending actuating member for the valve-controlled aerosol-conducting and discharge nozzle 22 and this third actuating member 41 projects downwardly centrally of the top wall 16 of the closure cap housing and is normally disposed above and out of engagement with the first actuating members 34-34 as shown in FIG. 2.

As shown in FIGS. 2, 3, 4 and 7, each of the first manually operable control members 35 has a side marginal edge portion 33 which projects laterally beyond the marginal edge portions 45 of the openings or slots 35, and each of the said first manually operable control member 35 has an upper end portion 44 which projects above the upper end of the corresponding vertically extending opening or slot 38 in the sidewall 17 of the closure cap housing 15 so that when the second manually operable control members 35-35 are moved radially inwardly, into effective position, as in FIGS. 3 and 4, the marginal edge portions 33 and 44 thereof engage the marginal edge portions 45 which define the openings or slots 38 in the sidewall 17 of the closure cap housing 15.

OPERATION In the use of the new aerosol container and safety closure cap unit therefor the closure cap housing 15 and the operating unit 30 may be assembled by inserting the body 46 of the operating unit 30 into the interior of the generally cylindrical body of the closure cap housing 15 while, at the same time, engaging the marginal edge portions 45 of the openings or slots 38 in the sidewall 17 of the closure cap housing'lS in the keyways 36, and thereupon inserting the second manually operable and buttonlike control member 41 through the central opening 42 in the top wall 16 of the closure cap housing 15. The entire safety closure cap unit 14 may then be assembled on the top wall portion 12 of the aerosol container 11 by frictionally mounting the lower marginal edge portions 18 of the sidewall 17 of the safety closure housing 15 into the annular mounting groove 13 in the top wall 12 of the aerosol container l 1.

When the parts are thus assembled, the depending neck portion 43 of the second manually operable control member 41, and which provides the third actuating member for the aerosol-conducting and discharge nozzle 22, is normally disposed centrally above the valve-controlled aerosol-conducting and discharge nozzle 22 and above the radially inwardly and horizontally extending actuating members 3434, and in alignment with the space therebetween, and in vertical registration with the body 23 of the aerosol-conducting and discharge nozzle 22 therebelow. Accordingly, in order to operate the valve-controlled aerosol-conducting and discharge nozzle 22, and its valve means 19-20, the user must simultaneously manually press, as with one finger, on each of the first manually operable control members 35-35, thereby forcing the supporting arms 31 and the radially inwardly and horizontally extending actuating members 3434 carried thereby radially inwardly toward each other while, at the same time, the operator must manually press simultaneously downwardly or inwardly, as with another finger or the thumb, on the second manually operable control member 41 and the third actuating member 43 attached thereto. During these two simultaneous manual operations the actuating members 34- 34 move radially inwardly from their normal position, as in FIG. 2, into the position in which they are shown in FIG. 3, and as and when the second manually operable control member 41 and its attached third actuating member 43 are thus manually pressed downwardly and inwardly the third actuating member 43 moves downwardly into the position in which it is shown in FIG. 4. During this movement, the third actuating member 43 engages the first actuating members 34-34 whereupon, as further manual pressure is applied to the second manually operable control member'41, the actuating members 34-34 engage the body 23 of the aerosol-conducting and discharge nozzle 22 and thereby urge the latter downwardly into engagement with the nozzle valve means 19-20, thus moving the nozzle valve means 19-20 into open position. The aerosol contents of the aerosol container 11 will then flow upwardly through the central passage 21 in the tubular nozzle valve member 20, through the passage 25 in the depending portion 24 of the body 23 of the nozzle 22, and then through the horizontal passage 26 therein and through the orifice 27 to the exterior of the closure cap housing unit 15.

It will be noted that when the first manually operable control members 35-35 for the actuating members 3434 are disposed in their normal position, as in FIG. 2, the bridge member 32 is disposed in a generally horizontal or single plane and the first manually operable control members 35-35 project radially outwardly of the sidewall 17 of the closure cap housing 15. However, when the first manually operable control members 35-35 and the supporting arms 31 of the operating unit 30 are manually moved radially inwardly into effective position, as in FIG. 4, and the second manually operable control member 41 and its attached third acting member 43 are manually moved downwardly or inwardly into engagement with the first actuating members 34-34, the bridge member 32 flexes somewhat and assumes the position in which it is shown in FIG. 4.

After the simultaneous manual pressure is released from the first manually operable control members 35-35, and from the second manually operable control member 41, the innate resiliency of the flexible resilient bridge member 32, as it returns to its normal position, as in FIG. 2, raises the second manually operable control member 41 and the third actuating member or neck portion 43 thereof in the central opening 42 in the top wall 16 of the closure cap housing 15 while, at the same time, the innate resiliency of the flexible, resilient bridge member 32 acts, through the supporting arms 31-31, to move the first manually operable control members 35-35 radially outwardly in the openings or slots 38 in the sidewall 17 of the closure cap housing 15, into their normal position, as in FIG. 2, thereby also moving the first actuating members 34-34 radially outwardly into their normal position, as in FIG. 2.

It will thus be noted that the new safety closure cap unit for an aerosol container embodies an actuating means for the valve-controlled aerosol-conducting and discharge nozzle and two manually operable control means for the said actuating means which are arranged at different points on the wall of the safety closure cap housing so as to necessitate simultaneous manual operation of both the first and second manually operable control means to move the actuating means into position to engage and open the valve-controlled aerosol-conducting and discharge nozzle for discharge of the aerosol contents of the aerosol container to the atmosphere.

It will thus be seen that the new aerosol container and closure cap unit therefor provides an aerosol safety closure cap unit which is so designed and constructed that young children cannot manipulate the first manually operable control means 35-35, and the second manually operable control means 41 simultaneously so that the new aerosol container closure unit thus provides a safety closure cap unit for aerosol containers which is tamperproof against opening by small children but may be readily operated by adults.

It will thus be seen from the foregoing description, considered in the light of the accompanying drawings, that the present invention provides a new and improved aerosol container and safety closure cap unit therefor embodying the desirable advantages and characteristics and accomplishing its intended objects including those hereinbefore pointed out and others which are inherent in the invention.
