FRANK ANTON HOOPS, OF PITTSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA.
BOTTLE-SEAL.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N0. 755,573, dated March 22, 1904. Application filed January 15, 1904. Serial No. 189,100. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FRANK ANTON Hoors, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Pittsburg, in the county of Allegheny and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bottle- Seals, of which the following is a specification; reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.
This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in bottle-seals, and has a for its object the provision of novel means whereby when the bottle or vessel has been once opened cannot again be restored as originally sealed.
Another object of my improved bottle-seal is to provide novel means whereby it becomes necessary to break the seal before the stopper or cork can be removed from the neck of the bottle, jar, or other vessel.
My invention still further aims to provide a device of the above-described character that tively inexpensive to manufacture, and highly efiicient in its use. 1
With the above and other objects in view the invention consists in the novel construction, combination, and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more fully described, and specifically pointed out in the claims.
In describing the invention in detail reference is had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this application, and wherein like numerals of reference indicate like parts throughout the several Views, in which Figure l is a vertical sectional view of a bottle-neck provided with my improved seal. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of my improved seal. Fig. 3 is a plan view of the seal before it is inserted in the bottle. Fig. 4 is a View of various forms of fastening means formed integral with the lower end of the strap.
In the drawings the reference-numeral 1 represents the bottle-neck, and 2 the cork thereof. An annular head 3 forms the seal proper, which has preferably formed therein a notch or cut-away portion 4:. This annular head 3 may contain the brand, label, stamp, or trademark of the manufacturers or merchant, as desired. Formed integral with the head 3 is a downwardly-extending strap 5, which is connected to the body portion of the annular head 3 by means of the slightly-reduced Web portion 6, which will permit the head to be easily severed from the strap 5. At the lower free end of the strap 5 is formed integral with the strap a heel 7, which is preferably triangular in cross-section, but which may be triangular in contour, as shown in Fig. 4 of the drawings, this heel 7 extending at right angles to the Strap 5 and adapted to engage in and form a locking engagement with the cork 2, as shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings.
When it is desired to remove the cork from the neck of the bottle, a knife-blade or other suitable instrument is inserted in the notch or cut-away portion 4, giving the operator access to the under face of the seal sufficiently to raise the seal to the upright position, and with this operation the seal is broken off by reason of the reduced web portion 6 of the strap 5. The cork may then be extracted in the usual manner and the contents removed from the bottle. When the cork has been drawn, the strap carrying the heel will be removed with the cork from the bottle.
It will be noted that the strap and heel do not come in contact with the contents of the bottle, as it would be injurious to many kinds of liquids to come in contact with the metallic substance. The seal, strap, and heel portions may be made of any suitable material and can be manufactured from a single piece, thereby reducing the cost to a minimum.
The many advantages obtained by the use of my improved seal will be readily apparent from the foregoing description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings.
It will be noted that various slight changes may be made in the details of construction without departing from the general spirit of my invention.
Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. A bottle-seal comprising an annular head, a strap formed integral with said head, and means carried by said strap to fasten the same to the cork, substantially as described.
2. A bottle-seal comprising an annular head having a notch formed therein, a strap formed integral with said head, and fastening means carried at the free end of said strap, substantially as described.
3. A bottle-seal comprising a head, a strap formed integral therewith, and a heel carried at the lower end of said strap extending at right angles thereto, substantially as described.
4. A bottle-seal comprising an annular head 20 having a notch formed therein, a strap formed integral with said head, a web formed between said strap and the head, and a heel formed at the lower end of said strap adapted to be inserted in the cork, all parts being arranged 5 H.
