REMOVABLE SUB-COMPARTMENT END
CLOSURE FOR- RECEPTACLES

of New York
Application September 22, 1936, Serial No. 101,983
5 Claims. (Cl. 229—15)
This invention relates to containers, or recep
tacles, of\ the type used in connection with the
retail of merchandise in small quantities. These
containers are usually formed of paper, or simi
5 lar ?brous material, and are used in connection
with the sale of ice-cream, and similar products.
The general object of my present invention is
the provision of a removable sub-compartment
end closure for such a container. In connection
10 with the sale of certain products, such as ice
cream, the customer often purchases one or more
other products such, for example, as syrups to
be used in connection with the ice-cream, or
product being purchased.
My removable sub
15 compartment end closure provides a separate
compartment, or space, for such additional prod
uct, and a further object of my invention is a
sub-compartment removable end closure of par
ticularly simple and economical‘ construction,
20 and which can be conveniently ?lled, ‘sealed and
adapted to the main body of thecontainer."
The invention consists in the novel features
and in the combinations [and constructions here
inafter set forth and claimed.

In describing this invention, reference is had
to the accompanying drawing in which like char
acters designate corresponding parts in all the
views.

‘
cured to the body II] by the conventional crimp}
as at I2, or in any other suitable manner.
The removable end closure comprises a cup
shaped member formed by a discoidal portion I3,
to the periphery of which is secured a band or 5
?ange member I4. These elements may also be
secured together as by crimping, as‘ at I5. The
?ange member I4 is complemental, in cross sec
tional dimension, to the tubular body III of the
receptacle.
After the receptacle is ?lled with 10
ice-cream, for example, the end closure is in- -
verted, as shown in Figure 2, and the syrup, or
other desired product, placed therein. . Subse
quently, a disk or sheet I6 of thin, ?exible mate
rial, such as cellophane, is arranged . over‘ the 15
open end of the end closure, and a sleeve or ,
band I‘! is pressed axially of the end closure, by
which action the peripheral portion of the sheet
I6 is folded downwardly about the outer surface
of the ?ange Id. The sleeve I1 is preferably of 20
appreciably greater length than thelength of
the ?ange I4, and extends outwardly beyond one
end of the flange. The outwardly extending por- ‘
tion of the band Il frictionally encircles the "
upper. end of the body I0, whereby the end 010- 25
sure, after the same has been ?lled and assem
bled, may be applied to the container in the
same manner as the. conventional slip cover with
I
Figure 1 is an elevationalyiew' showing a pre
30 ferred embodiment of my detachable sub-com
the sheet l6 arranged inwardly, as shown in
Figure ,1, or outwardly to provide a window 30
partment end closure applied to a container and ’ through which the contents of the end closure‘
being partly'in section.
.
,
. Figure 2 is an exploded view of the main ele
ments comprising the end closure, illustrating
35 the manner in which the end closure is assembled.
The invention consists generally of the com
bination of a conventional tubular‘ receptacle
and a detachable sub-compartment end closure,
which consists of a cup shaped member with the
40 ?ange, or side portion, of said member comple
mental in cross section to the body of the con
tainer, and which is encircled by a band extend
ing beyond one end ofJthef cup member and fric
tionally engaging the open end of the recepta
45 ole. The sub-compartment is formed by a disk
of thin, ?exible material, such as cellophane,
being arranged over the open end of the end
closure after the contents has been placed'there
in, and with the periphery of the sheet extend
50 mg between the outer surface» of the ?ange of
thecup shaped end closure and the band.
.
A conventional type of container'is illustrated
in Figure 1, and comprisesia tubular body por
tion I0, usually circular in cross" section, and
55 provided with a bottom closure 'Il ' which is se
may be inspected. In the latter instance, the
sleeve'or band I‘! would be pushed farther on _
the ?ange I 4, so that the sleeve would extend be_
yond the opposite end of the ?ange.
35
The inner diameter of the sleeve or band 'I1 is
such as to tightly engage the ?ange I4 and ac
cordingly, the peripheral portion of the. disk I6 '
is securely clamped between the ?ange I4 and
the sleeve I1. I have found, that'if the ‘parts of 40
the end closure are proportioned approximately,
as illustrated in Figure 1, the sheet I6 is secured
to the end closure in liquid tight relationship, and will not leak with thin liquids, such as water, _
over a period of several ‘hours.
.
45
If preferred, the ‘inner surface of. the sleeve [1
may be formed or provided with inwardly ex
tending ribs 20, 2|, the ribs 20 being preferably
spaced ‘equal distances from the ends of the
sleeve I1, and the rib 2| bein'garranged midway 50
between the ends of the sleeve. In this instance,
the sleeve I1 is of slightly greater diameter than
the body III and the ?ange I4. withlthis ar
rangement, the sleeve I‘! may be more easily
pressed over the marginal portion of the disk I6, 55
'

2,110,616 '
and the ?ange I4, and the end closure more easily
applied to the end of the body I0. With this
arrangement,_the ribs 20 frictionally engage the
body III to form a tight, liquid ,prooi'. joint, re
gardless of which end of the sleeve I‘! extends
beyond the ?ange I4}, ‘and the intermediate rib, 2|
tightly presses the ?ange of the disk l6 against
the outer surface of the ?ange ll forming a
liquid tight joint between these members.
10
Preferably, the sleeve I1‘ is provided with one
or, more small apertures 22 arranged between -
the rib 2| and ribs 22. The purpose of these
apertures is to permit the escape of air from
within the extending portion of the sleeve I'I
while it is being pressed on the end of the body “I.
It will be observed that should the customer
desire to purchase a quantity or‘. syrup to be
used with the ice-cream contained in the re
ceptacle, the clerk or attendant can quickly and
20 conveniently ?ll the end closure with syrup, lay
the sheet l6 over the open end thereof and press
the sleeve l1 over the ?ange I 4', and when thus
' assembled the unit comprises an end closure for
25
the container.
It will be understood and appreciated that
there are a number of instances where it is de
sired to package two products, which are gener
ally used together, in one package, and my re
movable sub-compartment end closure is par
30 ticularly adapted for such use.
What I claim is: _
1. The combination of a receptacle having a
tubular body portion and a removable sub-com
partment end closure for one end of said' body,
35 said end closure comprising a discoidal portion
having a depending annular ?ange complemental
to said tubular body, with the edge of the ?ange
abutting against the end of the body portion, a
band encircling said ?ange and the end portion
of said body, and a disk of thin, ?exible ma
terial arranged over the open end oithe ?ange
and being secured at its periphery between the
outer side of said ?ange and the inner surface of
said band.

.
2. The combinationof a receptacle having a
tubular body portion and a detachable sub-com
cup portion and the end portion of the body, and
a disk of thin, ?exible material arranged across
the open end of the cup member and being se
cured at its periphery between said cup member
and said band.
'
3. The combination of a receptacle having a
tubular body portion forming a main compart
ment, anda detachable end closure forming a
sub-compartment, said end closure comprising
a discoidal portion having a depending annular 10

?exible material arranged across the open end of
said ?ange, with the peripheral portion of said
sheet overlapping the outer surface of said ?ange,
a band encircling said ?ange and peripheral por 15
tion of said sheet, and having a portion extend
ing beyond said ?ange and frictionally engaging
‘the end of the body portion, and said band being
provided with an aperture adjacent the open end
of said ?ange to permit the escape of air when 20
said end closure is applied to the end of the body.
4. The combination of a receptacle having a
tubular body portion forming the'main compart
ment of. the receptacle, and a detachable end
closure forming a sub-compartment, said end 25

of thin, ?exible material arranged across the
open end of the cup shaped member, with a
periphery of said sheet folded about the outer
side of said member, and'a sleeve frictionally
encircling the outer side of said member and
securing the periphery of said sheet between the
sleeve and said member, and said sleeve extend
ing outwardly beyond the open end of said mem
ber and arranged to frlctionally encircle the open
end of the body portion.
.
