FRUIT JAR CLOSURE
George W. Killin, Jr., West Huntington, W. Va.
Application July 15, 1936, Serial No. 90,767
4 Claims. (Cl. 215-86)
This invention relates to a closure means for lug 22 entering the opening 13 of the adjacent
fruit jars or other receptacles and it generally
aims to provide a construction which avoids the
use of screw threads and may be readily applied
5 and released with effective pressure so. that the
closure will be sealed air tight.
More speci?cally, it aims to provide a closure
means for engagement with a cap, consisting of
an L-shaped bail and an arm pivoted thereto,
10 said arm and the arm of the bail being engage
able in lugs on the jar so that the device may
thereafter be operated to tightly clamp the clo
sure and its gasket in place.
The more speci?c objects and advantages will
15 become apparent from a consideration of the
description following taken in connection with
accompanying drawing illustrating an operative
embodiment.
In said drawing:—
20
Figure l is a view of a jar equipped with my
improvements;
Figure 2 is a plan view of the parts of Figure 1;
Figure 3 is a substantially central vertical sec
tional view taken on the plane of line 3—3 of
25 Figure 2, and
Figure 4 is a detail perspective View of the
closure-securing parts.
Referring speci?cally to the drawing wherein
like reference characters designate like or similar
30 parts, the improvements have been shown as
applied to a fruit jar as at Ill, usually being of
glass. This disclosure is to be taken as conven
tional since the improvements may be applied to
any desire-d receptacle. The upper portion of
35 the fruit jar is reduced in diameter as at H and
at diametrically opposite points, at the shoulder
thus formed, lugs or ears I2 extend outwardly
therefrom, the same having openings l3 there
through.
The mouth of the jar is covered by a
40 metallic or other cap or closure l4 and an elastic
sealing gasket I5 is preferably interposed between
said cap and the upper edge of the jar.
In order to hermetically seal the cap to the
jar or equivalent, an L-shaped bail is provided
45 at l6 having a cross arm I‘! and a ‘depending
side arm I 8 rigid therewith. The bail is made
of resilient wire and at the free end of the arm
ll, an eyelet I9 is formed in which a depending
arm 20 is pivotally connected by means of an
50 eyelet 2|. Each of the side arms l8 and 20 have
angularly disposed lugs or projections 22 and 23
extending therefrom.
In the closing of the jar or receptacle, after
application of the gasket l5 and cap M, the bail
55 I6 is applied as shown in Figures 1, 2 and 3 with
ear I 2 and with the bar I’! disposed across the
top of the cap 14.
Thereupon, the side arm 20,
which moves on the longitudinal axis of the arm
I1, is rocked so as to engage the lug 23 in the 5
adjacent opening I 3. The parts of bail l6 and
arm 20 are so proportioned that the closing or
engagement of side arm 20 at 23 with an opening
l3, depresses the cap l4 and gasket [5 and se- '
cures them in such depressed position, thereby 10
hermetically sealing the jar or container. In
order to release the cap, it is simply necessary
to initially move the side arm 20 in the reverse
direction to disengage the lug 23 from adjacent
opening I3, following which, the bail I‘! may be 15
readily detached.
Various changes may be resorted to provided
they fall within the spirit and scope of the in
vention.
I claim as my.invention:—-

1. In combination with a jar having openings
on opposite sides thereof, said jar being adapted
to be closed by a cap and an interposed gasket, a
bail disposable across the cap having a depending
arm anchored in one of said openings, and a side 25
arm pivoted to one end of the bail and movable
in a plane at a right angle to the longitudinal
axis of the bail and engageable in the other open
ing, said bail being removable and each arm being
detachably engageable in either opening.

2. In combination with a jar having openings
at opposite sides thereof, said jar being adapted
for closing by a cap and an interposed gasket, I
an L-shaped bail having a portion extending
across the cap and a depending side arm, said 35
side arm having a lug engaged in one of the
openings, a side armv pivoted to the free end of
said portion and movable in a plane at a right
angle to the longitudinal axis of said portion, the
last mentioned side arm having a lug engageable 40
in the other opening, said bail being removable
andheach arm being detachably engageable in
either opening.
3. In combination with a jar having openings
at opposite sides thereof, said jar being adapted 45
for closing by a cap and an interposed gasket,
an L-shaped bail having a portion extending
across the cap and a depending side arm, said
side arm having a lug engaged in one of the
openings, a side arm pivoted to the free end of 50
said portion and movable in a plane at a right
angle to the longitudinal axis of said portion, the
last mentioned side arm having a lug engageable
in the other opening, said portion and last men
tioned side arm having interengaged eyelets 55

e?ecting their pivotal connection, said bail being
removable and each arm being detachably en
gageable in either opening.
4. A securing device for a cap engaging a con
tainer, the device comprising an L-shaped bail
providing a portion to engage the cap and a
depending arm, a, lug extending from the free
end of the arm for engagement with an opening
of the jar, a side arm pivotally connected to the
free end of said portion and movable in a'plane
at right angle to the longitudinal axis of said
portion, the second mentioned side arm having a
lug engageable with an opening of a jar, said bail
being removable and each arm being detachably
engageable in either opening,
