NON-REFILLABLE. BOTTLE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 593,129, dated November 2, 1897'.
Application filed February 27, 1897. Serial No. 625,378. (No model.)
To 0055 whom, it may concern.-
-Be it known that I, ISAAC SHULTES, a citizen of the United States, residing at Martin, in the county of Allegan and State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Non-Refillable Bottles; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and'exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to a non-refillable bottle, and the object'is to provide a bottle of this character from which the contents cannot be removed-and the bottle refilled and sold as an original package without detection; and to this end the invention consists of certain features of construction and combination of parts which will be hereinafter fully described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a sectional view of the upper portion of a bottle embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is a detail perspective view of the glass seal or stopper, and Fig. 3 is a similar view of the lockspring.
In the drawings, A denotes the upper'end or neck of a bottle, jar, or other vessel adapted to contain sealed articles-such as liquids, preserves, and the like.
B denotes the mouth of the vessel, which is joined onto the neck proper of the vessel by a thin weak frangible portion G. The interior of the neck portion is provided with a series of annulargrooves F.
C denotes the glass seal or stopper, which is substantially tapering in form and is provided with a series of circular grooves h and with a transverse aperture H. v
E denotes the cork, which is adapted to be placed in the bottle below the weakened or frangible portion G.
J denotes cement or plaster-of-paris.
I denotes a U shaped spring which is adapted to pass through the hole H in the stopper or seal 0. v
After the bottle has been filled and it is desired to seal the same the cork E is forced into place below the frangible portion G of the neck. Cement or plaster-of-paris is now filled in the neck of the bottle above the cork, and the glass seal or stopper 0 is then forced downward into place, as shown in Fig. 1. This causes the cement or plaster-of-paris to be forced into the grooves of both the stopper and the interior neck of the bottle, and when it hardens it will form a lock to prevent the removal of the glass seal or stopper, which, being arranged above the stopper E, will not permit of any tools or implements being inserted into the neck of the bottle and withdrawing said stopper.
To gain access to the contents of the bottle, it is necessary to break off the neck thereof above the stopper E to permit of the removal of the said stopper. Afterthis has been done the bottle has been damaged and cannot be refilled and sold as an original package without detection.
If it is notdesired to use the cement to lock the stopper O in position, I may employ the spring I, which, when engaged with the stopper H and said stopper forced downward into the neck of the'bottle, will spring outwardly and its ends will engage the grooves in the neck of the bottle. I may, however, prefer to use the spring I in conjunction with the cement and plaster-otparis, whereby the stopper II will be more effectually held in position.
. Although I have described my invention in connection with a bottle, I would have it distinctly understood that I reserve to myself the right of its application to jars or any other vessel in which it is desired to seal liquids, fruits, and the like.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is-
1; A bottle or jar provided with a breakinggroove in the neck thereof, a stopper below said groove and a removable partition'above it, said removable partition provided with a plurality of interior concentric grooves and intermediate ribs or projections, and a nonfrangible stopper having a smooth sealingsurface near its upper end, a tapering lower end provided with a series of concentric grooves and intermediate ribs which gradually decrease in size toward the lower end of the stopper, and a plastic compound between the two stoppers and filling the grooves in the upper stopper and removable portion,substantially as described.
2. A bottle or jar having a breakinggroove in the neck thereof, a stopper below it and an internally-grooved portion above it, 111.combination with a stopper having a tapering lower end provided with a series of grooves of gradually-decreasing size, and intermediate ribs, and an upwardly-curved spring passing through an aperture in the lower end of said stopper to engage at its opposite ends one of the grooves in the neck o h bottle or jar, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I hereunto affix my signature in presence of two Witnesses.
