Description

rA-TnNr ornion- STACY B. ODELL AND nERsoHEL SMILEY, or ODON, INDIANA.
' lar to disposed as when contents of the receptacle are being removed. Fig. 3 1s a horizontal ne.'815,112. l
NON-REFILLABLE BOTTLE.
To all whom) it may concern:
- Be it known that we, STACY B. ODnLL and HERSOHEL W. SMILEY, citizens of the United States,residing at Odon, in the county of Daviess and State of Indiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Non-Refillable Bottles, of which the follow- .ing isas ecification.
I ll description of the invention and the merits thereof and also to acquire a knowledge of the details of construction of For a the means for effecting the resultzreference is to be had to the following description and accompany'ing drawings, in which Figure 1 is a vertical section showing the u per portion of a bottle having the inven-' tlon ap lied thereto. Fi 2 is a view simiig. 1, the bottle inverted and parts section on the line 3 3 of Fig. 1. Corresponding and like arts are referred to in the following descriptlon and indicated in all the views of the drawings by the same reference characters.
The object of this invention is to provide efiective means of the t e designed to prevent fraudulent refilling of bottles or like receptacles after the original contents thereof havebeen withdrawn.
In carrying out the invention the means embodying the same are applicable to bottles of the common type with slight modification, and in the drawings the numeral 1 designates the body of the bottle, while the numeral 2 indicates the neck thereof. The neck 2 is adapted to receive a closure, which comprises a hollow body 3, adapted to fit snugy therein to be prevented from dis placement by suitable means. .Near the mouth thereof said neck 2 is formed with an internal groove-4, and the upper portion of the closure 3 is formed with a similar external groove '5, adapted to register with the groove 4, but formed deeper than the latter. The groove 5 of the closure is adapted to receive a number of small balls 6, which may be wholly received in said grooves 5 as the closure 3 is placed in position in the neck2; but when the groove 5 registers with the groove 4 these balls will artially enter the latter, and thereby estab ish a lock, effectively preventing displacement of the closure without breaking or mutilating the receptacle. The lower end of the closure 3 is formed with a valve-opening 7, and the up- 7 per portion of the closure is likewise formed with an outlet-opening 8. A washer or annulus 9, of rubber or similar material, is 10- cated at-the lower extremity of the closure 3,
being received in a suitable groove formed externally of the latter, and this washer establishes an air and water tight connection between the closure and the inner wall'of the neck, obviating all likelihood of escape of the contents of the receptacle between the part 3 and said neck. The hollow portion of the closure 3 is of a size admitting of free movement of a valve 10, which valve is preferably of rubber and formed with a valve-seat .11, cemented or attached to the lower'portion of the closure 3 just above the opening 7, said seat 11 being of annular form and having its edge portion received in a groove suitably formed in the hollow portion of the closure, as shown most clearly in Figs. 1 and 2. The valve 10 is of the flap-valve type and is preferably integral with its seat 1 1, and in this instance will also be made of rubber. The outlet-opening 8, leading through the upper portion ofthe closure 3 from its hollow portion,
is located at one side of the center of the closure, and interposed between the inner end of said opening 8 and the valve is aguard projection 12, preferably integrally formedwith the closure and extending from the same, so as to efiectively prevent insertion of an in strument or the like through the o ening 8 to tamper with the valve 10 and proper working thereof. 1
Weight means are preferably employed to hold the valve 10 seated or closed, and such means is comprised in a small weight or member 13, adapted to rest on top of the; valve and rovided with a stem 14, projecting upwardy therefrom through. an opening 15 about central of the upper end of the closure 3. The weight 13 ofcourse operates in the hollow portion of the closure 3, and the stem 14 is designed to facilitate operation of the weight to permit of ready opening of the valve when it isdesired to withdraw the contents of the'receptacle. The upper extremity of the stem 14 is formed with a'lateral extension 16, and as said stem 14 is revoluble in the opening '15 the extension'16 may be readily turned, so as to engage beneath a lockv Patented llli'arciiItE,1906. Application filed 06t0ber 27,1905- Serial No. 284,726. I
isturb the ing projection 17, formed on top ofthe 010- sure 3. When the extension 16- is engaged tion in which it is resting upon the valve 10 to hold the same closed. When, however, it is desired to pour the contents of the receptacle therefrom, the member 16 is disengaged from the projection 17, and on inversion of the bottle the weight 13 will move away from the valve and permit opening thereof under the pressure of the liquid which is passing through the opening 7 to the outlet-opening 8. The closure 3 and the adjacent parts composed in its construction are simply arranged, so as to readily permit of displacing the contents of the receptacle in a manner whichwill be obvious from the description above.
The opening 8 may be closed by a cork or similar closure to prevent contamination of the contents of the receptacle, though ordinarily the valve 10 affords a sufficient means to accomplish this. A cap 18 (shown in Fig. 1) may be employed for the same purpose, if
desired, and will constitute an adequate closure Having thus described the invention, What is claimed as new is In a non-refillable bottle, the combination of a neck, a closure therefor comprising a hollow body, a valve, said closure having a suitable outlet-opening, a member adapted to rest upon the valve to hold the same closed, a stem connected with said member and passing through the outer portion of the closure, an extension projecting laterally from the stern near its outer end, and a locking projection formed with the closure at its outer end and arranged to be engaged by the extension on the stem aforesaid to hold the member connected with said stem resting on the valve.
