J. Z. HUGHES.
. BOTTLE STOPPER.
No. 436,058. Patented Sept. 9, 1890.
UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
JOHN Z. HUGHES, OF MAHANOY CITY, PENNSYLVANIA.
BOTTLE-STOPPER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 436,058, dated September 9, 1890.
Application filed March 1, 1390.
To aZZ whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, JOHN Z. HUGHES, a citizen of the United States, residing at Mahanoy City, in the county of Schuylkill and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bottlestoppers, of which the following is a specification.
The object of my invention is to providea simple and efficient stopper or cover for hot tles and similar closures.
In carrying out my invention I hinge or otherwise flexibly secure the stopper or cover to the neck or at one side of the opening in the vessel and provide a locking hook engag ing with a flange on the vessel and pivoted eccentrically on the stopper or cover.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is an elevation of abottle with my improvements applied. Fig. 2 is a side view of the upper part of a bottle, showing my improvements applied with some of the parts in a different position from that shown in Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a top view. Fig. i is a vertical central section, and Fig. 5 is a vertical central section showing a modification.
I have shown in the drawings my improvements applied to a tin vessel or can A, of well=known construction. The removable stopper or cover B is preferably formed as shown particularly in Fig. 4 of the drawings, in which the main body portion of the stopper is metallic, having a top piece a, adapted to cover the top of the opening, and a central body portion a having a bottom flange a Between the top portion a and the flange a is interposed a packing a of rubber or similar material. A lug a is formed on or secured to the stopper, and this lug is pivoted or hinged to the neck of the bottle to swing vertically, preferably by a wire a, secured to the neck of the bottle and passing through a projection in the lug a The upper end of the neck A of the bottle is provided with a beaded edge I), and beneath the beaded edge the neck is bent inwardly at b to form an annular convex projection within and a concave annular recess on the outside. The
stopper is adapted to fit closely at the end of the neck A, and when firmly held in place closes the bottle air-tight.
To securely lock the stopper to the bottle I provide a hook D, provided at its inner end with a slot d, through which extends a pin d, secured eccentrically to the stopper B, preferably between the center of the stopper and the hinge. The upper end of the pin d is provided with arms d projecting in opposite directions and preventing the hook from becoming detached, but permitting it to turn freely about its pivotal connection with the stopper. The outer end d of the hook is adapted to engage with the beaded or flanged rim 1) of the neck of the bottle. The outer end of the hook, it will be observed, projects into the concave annular recess beneath the beaded edge. Vhen the hook is turned to the position shown in Figs. 2 and 3 by dotted lines that is, toward the hinge of the stop per-the hook does not engage with the flange or bead b, and the stopper can be thrown back on its hinge to open the bottle; but when in the position shown by full lines in all the figures the hook engages with the flange or bead b and holds the stopper firmly in place. The hook is unlocked by simply swinging it on its pivot in the direction indicated by the arrow in Fig. 3.
The only difference in construction shown in Fig. 5 is that the annular recess and convex projection are omitted from the neck of the bottle, and the rubber packing of the stopper projects a little farther over the edge of the neck.
I have shown in the drawings my invention applied to an ordinary form of tin bottle having a contracted neck and mouthpiece. It is obvious, however, that my improvements may be readily applied to bottles, circular boxes, or closures of other kinds than that illustrated.
I claim as of my own invention- 1. The combination, substantially as hereinbefore set forth, of the stopper or cover hinged to the neck of a vessel to swing vertically, and a hook or clamping device and its pivot-pin secured to the cover between its center and the hinge.
2. The combination, substantially as hereinbefore set forth, of the bottle having an annular symmetrical flange around its open adapted at its outer end to engage with the annular flange around the mouth of the bottle.
3. The combination, substantially as hereinbefore set forth, of the stopper hinged to the neck of a bottle and adapted to swing vertically, the hook or clamping device slotted at its inner end, and the pivot-pin secured eccentrically to the cover and provided with laterally-projecting arms which hold the hook in position on the cover.
4. The combination, substantially as hereinbefore set forth, of the bottle having a flange or bead around its open end and a concavo-convex annular projection below the beaded edge, the stopperhinged to the bottle JOHN Z. HUGHES.
