It is desirable in the forming of the cap to like of the type where the closure is hermetically sealed to the container through the medium of 'emboss or raise the fold H at one point slightly, preferably near the edge of the cap to permit 5 a rubber gasket or the like, and normally the cap or ‘closure rests upon the container under the insertion of a tool of some kind to distort pressure caused by the introduction of a vacuum the fold‘ II "when the cap is to be removed. The reference numeral ll indicates a rubber into the container or otherwise. A particular object of this invention is‘ the " gasket, by which the cap is hermetically sealed 10 10 provision of a novel- form of cap or closure for under'pressure to the body of the container [8.
