JAR-COVER.

No. 924,401. Specification of Letters Patent.

Serial No. 437,858.

Patented June 8, 1909.

Application filed June 11, 1908.

spring 10 formed in a horizontal coil and secured at 11 to the cover top. A loop 12 is formed in the spring and extends down on the outside of the jar and bears on the wall thereof in a manner corresponding to the springs described with reference to Figs. 1 and 2. The coils 10 are capable of expansion and contraction to allow the loops 12 to be moved back and forth toward or from the edge of the cover. Both of these spring fasteners will snap into place down over the jar rib by placing the cover on the jar and applying a slight pressure thereto, the proper adjustment, of course, of the springs having previously been made to fit the cover to the ar.

VJe claim as our invention:

1. The combination with a jar, having a rib extending around the top thereof, of a cover adapted to fit the top of said jar, springs mounted on said cover and having depending ends adapted to snap by said rib and hold the cover in place on the jar, and l said springs having horizontal portions which are capable of being flexed toward or from the edge of the cover to adapt said depending ends to jars of diiierent sizes, substantially as described.

2. The combination, with a jar having a l rib extending around the top thereof, of a cover fitting on said jar, spring clamps having looped middle portions and means securing said looped portions to the jar cover, and said clamps having spring portions extending outwardly from said looped portions and terminating in downwardly turned ends, said ends engaging the rib on said jar and capable of movement toward and from the edge of the cover to grip the surface of said rib, substantially as described.

3. A jar cover, and springs mounted thereon said springs having looped middle portions with means for securing them to the top of the cover, and downwardly turned ends depending below the edge of the cover, said ends being capable of swinging outwardly and adapted to grasp the wall of the jar on which said cover is placed, substantially as described.

4. The combination with a jar, having an open top, of a cover adapted to fit thereon,

T 0 all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, WILLIAM STRACHAN and NEIL H. CAMPBELL, of St. Thomas, Pembina county, North Dakota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Jarovers, of which the following is a specification.

Our invention relates to improvements in covers for jars usually used for holding butter, and the primary object of our invention is to provide a simple, inexpensive cover capab e of application to jars of various sizes and having means for securely holding the cover in place on the jar.

A further object is to simplify and improve the jar cover shown and described in Letters Patent of the United States No. 885,103, issued April 21, 1908 to William Strachan.

The invention consists generally in various constructions and combinations, all as hereinafter described and particularly pointed out in the claims.

In the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, Figure 1 is a top view of a cover embodying our invention. Fig. 2 is a side view of a jar with our cover applied thereto. Fig. 3 is a top view of a portion of the cover illustrating a modified construction. Fig. 4 is a detail edge view of the modification of Fig. 3.

In the drawing, 2 represents a jar and 3 a cover of wood or other suitable material, fitting the top of the jar which is provided with the usual annular rib 4. For the purpose of holding the cover in ing it to jars of various sizes, we provide spring clamps or holders 5 havin looped middle portions 6 held in lace on t e cover by staples 7, and depem ing extensions 8 which are adapted to slip down over the rib 4 and terminate in inwardly bent portions 9 which engage the lower wall of the rib and hold the cover in place on the jar. The s rings 5 are sufficiently flexible to allow the epending ends 8 to swing outwardly away from the edge of the cover and accommodate l themselves to any increase in the diameter of the jars, and thereby adapt the cover for large or small sizes of jars.

In Figs. 3 and 4 we have illustrated aj modification which consists in providing a place and adaptsprings mounted on said cover and having depending ends adapted to engage the Wall our hands this sixth day of June 1908. 01'' said jar and hold the cover in place there- W .ILLIAM.
