The opening of the container by the contents into another device without danger of. destruction of a side wall thereof prevents the 10 spilling or waste, the container being opened by container being restored for further use. If the 10 the destruction of a side wall thereof to prevent container is opened by puncturing an end Well said container from being restored for further use. said end Wall can be easily removed and replaced With these and other objects in View, this invention consists in certain novel features of con- by another reconditioning the container for fur ther use. Thus it will be seen that the present 15 struction, combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more fully described and claimed. invention has a‘distinet advantage Over similar 15 openers in that it renders the container un?t f0!‘ further use after being opened thereby. For a Complete understanding of my invention, reference is to be had to the following description 20 and accompanying drawing, in which Figure 1 is a, vertical sectional view illustrating an opener constructed in accordance with my inVention and showing a container opened thereby. What is claimed is: 1- An Opener Comprising a» funnel including a spout and a flared portion, said ?ared portion 20 having its walls extended to form a substantially rectangular shaped Container receiving Portion adopted to receive a container disposed upon its , Figure 2 is a transverse sectional View illustrat25 ing the Same Figure 3 is a top phm View illustrating the Siiie, spaced bars integral With Opposite Walls of the container receiving portion, and tubular pen- 25 eti'atmgelements carried by the spaced bars and ' device.
