M. LINTZ. CORK FOR BOTTLES.

Patented Jan. 3, 1893.

I [NVENTORZ W1 TNESSES- iJNrTno STATES PATENT prion CORK FOR BOTTLES.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters PatentNo. 489,081, dated January .3, 1893. I

Application filed March 18, I892. Serial No. 425,465. (No model) 10 aZZ whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, MARTIN LINTZ; of Socorro, county of Socorro, andTerritoryof New Mexico, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Corks for Bottles; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, which will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and -use it, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part thereof.

My invention relates to an improvement in corks, for bottles, jugs, and similar vessels, and it consistsin a'cork having a continuous inverted U-shaped wire passed into the cork near its center and extending through the same, in lines inclined to the longitudinal axis of said cork,to the sides thereof at points above the bottom, forming downwardly diverging portions within the cork, and thence passing down the sides of the cork and having its'ends twisted together and united under the bottom of the cork, whereby said wire bail is made continuous, as will be more fully hereinafter set forth and particularly pointed out in the claim.

In the accompanying drawings, which illustrate my invention Figure 1 is a perspective view showing one of my improved corks in position in the neck of a bottle, the bail of the cork being shown in position, when not in use.

Fig. 2, is a similar view, showing the ball of the cork in a vertical position,in position for use in extracting the cork from the bottle. Fig. 3 isa vertical sectional view,o a larger scale, showing the cork in position in the neck of a bottle, and showing the manner of attaching the bail to the cork. Fig. 4 is a detached perspective View of one of my improved corks, the visible portions of the bail being shown in solid lines and the invisible i portions thereof being traced in dotted lines.

The cork A, is of the usual material and shape, and may be of any size, according to the size of the bottle, jug, or other vessel with which it is adapted to be used.

In order to provide the cork with a device whereby it may be readily extracted from the bottle or jug without employinga corkscrew, i provide a bail, I which is preferably made of wire, of any suitable size, according to the size of the cork with which it is employed.

'The wire is first bent in the shape of an in;

verted U and the ends thereof are passed through converging openings, which. extend from the sides of the cork at asuitable distance from the bottom thereof, to the upper end of the cork, as shown in Figs. 3and 4, the-lower ends of the wire being bent under the bottom of the cork, and twisted, or secured together in any other suitable manner. The length of the bail is sufficient to enable the upper end tilereof to project some distance above the cork, thereby forming a loop 0. In order to extract the cork from thebottle it is only necessary to insert a nail, a button hook, the tine of a fork, or any' other pointedinstrument,

or even a stick, transversely through the loop,

cork will be drawn from the bottle, as will be very readily understood.

It will be observed, from reference to Figs. 3 and 4.- that the inclined, upwardly converging portions a, of the ball, which pass through the cork, will tend to compress the latter diametrically, when the bail is drawn, thereby loosening the cork in the neck of the bottle and hence enabling the cork to be drawn, by a comparatively slight-pull. When the bottle is not in use, the loop 0 may be bent over the upper portion 'of the cork and over the lip or flange b, at the mouthof the bottle, where it will be and remain'entirely out of the Way,

and will not in any manner interfere with.

consisting of strips of ribbon attached to the cork by being passed through the body of the 'cork and 'havingits ends connected above the cork so as to form abail; but such is not my invention, andthis I disclaim.

I am also aware that it hasbeen heretofore 5- proposed to provide a corkwith a wire bail whereby itisinterlacedor sewedinsuch manner that oneportion orva cork cannot be drawn from a bottle withoutthe other; but

suclr is not my invention, and this'also I'disclaim; and-I am further-aware that ithas been proposed to provide a cork. with a loop-shaped .handle formed of wire the ends of which pass out or near the center of the top part, in an rod oblique direction through the .corkand an r i thence passingilown the sides ot he uul'KflDd having its ends twisted together and. united under the bottom of the cork, whereby the said wire bail is made continuous, substantially' as shown and described.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing I append my signature.

\ MARTIN LINTZ.
