BOTTLE-sro PPER.4 v l SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 351,769, dated November 2, 1886.
Application filed July 26, 1886. Serial No. 209.124.
To all whom it may concern: j
Be it known that we, HERMAN HEN'rsoHKE and J OHN BROWN, citizens of the United States, residing at Council Bluffs," in the county of Pottawattamie and lState of Iowa, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Bottle-Stoppers, of which the following is a specification.
Our invention relates to an improvement in bottle-Stoppers; and it consists in the peculiar construction and combination of devices, that forth hereinafter, and particularly pointed out in the claims.
In the drawings, Figure lis a perspective View of a bottle-stopper embodying our iinprovements. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same. Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional view. Fig. 4 is a horizontal section on line :c x of Fig. 3. Fig. 5 is a top plan view. Fig. Gis atop plan view with the lid removed.
A represents the neck of a bottle or jar, which is provided on opposite sides, near its upper end, with projecting tenons B, which are' blown with the bottle or jar.
C represents a collar, which is made of indiarubber or other suitable elastic material, and the said collar is provided on opposite sides with openings which correspond with the tenons B, and at the upper edge of the collar is an annular flange or shoulder, O. This collar is stretched over the upper portion of the neck of the bottle or jar, and is secured firmly thereto by passing the tenons through the openings thereof.
D represents a metallic collar, which is made in twosections,hinged together by means ofthe pivotal pins E,which extendvertically through projecting intermeshing tongues D', with which the sections of the collar are provided. The said sections of the collar are provided at right angles to the hinged joint with open'- ings D2, adapted to receive the projecting outer ends of the tenons B. The said collar is placed around the upper portion of the neckof the bottle or jar, and compressesthe rubber collar O, as shown. From the lower side of one section of thecollar project outwardly-extend` ing lugs d, between which is hinged or pivoted the lower end 'of a catch, F, and from the opposite side of the other section of the collar, at the upper edge'thereof, project ears or lugs d, between which is hinged a lid or cover, G. The said lid or cover is provided on its under side with a depending annular flange, g, which is adapted to enter the recess formed between (No model.)
the collar D and the neck of the bottle or jar, above the upper edge of the rubber eollarO, and when the said lid or cover is closed on thc top of the bottle or jar the said flange g bears Idown iirinly upon 'the upper edge of the rubl6o ber collar and forms an air and water tight joint. From the free side of the lid or cover projects a pair of ears, g', the outer ends of which are inclined or beveled o n their upper sides, and in rear of the said inclines are made depressions g2. The catchF is provided at its free ends with a T- shapedhead, f. When the lid or cover is closed, the catch F is swung outwardly, and the upper portion of the shank of the said catch enters between the projecting lugs g'of the lid or cover, and the head of the catch is guided over the said lug by means of the inclines and the tongue seated in the depressions g", thereby iirmly locking the lid or cover when closed. v A bottle or jar stopper thus constructed is cheap and simple,jis very efticientand strong and durable, and is very easily operated.
Having thus described our invention, We
claim- 8o l. The combination, with the bottle or jar having its neck provided with the projecting tenons, of the elastic collar fitted on the neck of the bottle or jar, and having the openings to receive the tenons, and the collar D, fitted over the elastic collar, and also provided with openings to receive the projecting ends of the tenons, the hinged cover, and the catch secured to the collar D, to lock the cover when closed, substantially as described. 9o
2. The elastic collar G, fitted to the neck ot a bottleV or jar, and the metallic collar D, f1tted around the elastic collar and having its upper edge extended above the upper edge of the elastic collar, and the cover G, having its outer edge resting iiat on the upper edge ot" the metallic collar, and a ange, g, depending from the cover, and adapted to tit in the space between the neck of the bottle and the metallic collar and rest upon the elastic collar, as' 10o set forth.
In testimony that we claim the foregoing as our own we have hereto affixed our signatures in presence of two witnesses.
