1. In-combination a bottle or like container comprising an external rib around the container in the neighborhood of the mouth thereof and formed with a downwardly directed shoulder, said rib being provided with a plurality of swaging projections extending downwardly therefrom and having edges forming parts of said shoulder, and a deformable cap completely covering said swaging projections and having its skirt portion swaged under said downwardly directed shoulder at-all points around the complete periphery of the mouth of the bottle.
2. The combination as claimed in claim 1 in which the projections are substantially triangular with an apex of each projection directed downwardly.
