TAHENY 2,133,758 - NONREFILLABLE BOTTLE CLOSURE Filed Feb. 15, 1937 ATTORNEYS 2,133,758 Patented Oct. 18, 1938 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,133,758 , NONREFILLABLE BOTTLE CLOSURE Thomas J. Taheny, l’awtucket, R. I. ' Application February 15, 1937, Serial No. 125,922 1 Claim. (01. 215-22‘) This invention relates to non-re?llable bottles, and its general object is to provide a closure for bottles or other containers, that will allow for the free passage of the contents therefrom, but 5 prevents re?lling after the original contents has been dispensed. ‘ A further object is to provide a closure for a bottle or the like, that renders the same non re?llable, which can be originally secured to the 10 bottle in an easy and expeditious manner, but cannot be removed therefrom without breakage or damage to the bottle or closure. ' Another object is to provide a non-re?llable closure for a bottle, that will assure the genuine 16 ness of the contents thereof, will retain the con tents free from exposure until completely dis pensed, and will prevent the contents from ?ow 20 - _ - The closure includes 'a hollow body 4 of inverted cup-shape formation ‘and the body is provided with a top 5 having centrally arranged thereon and formed therewith an exteriorly threaded nip ple 5' for threadedly receiving a cap 6, the nipple acting as an? outlet for the contents of the bottle, 10 as it passes through the closure as will be ap parent, and the cap 6 may have a gasket 6’ there in providing sealing means, so that the contents will ‘remain free from exposure and contamina tion until completely dispensed from the bottle. 15 Formed about the lower end of the body 4 is a upon its side, thereby avoiding waste. A still further object of the invention is to pro allow expansion of the ring 3, so that when the closure is applied to the bottle, pressure on the 20 vide a non-re?llable closure for a bottle, that is ring will cause the same to expand over the ?ange neat and simple in construction, inexpensive to manufacture, and extremely e?icient in operation, 2, for disposal in the groove thereof, as shown, therefore it will be obvious thatthe closure can not be removed from the bottle without breakage This invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination or damage to the neck or the closure. , 25 and arrangement of the several parts, to be here inafter fully described, illustrated in the accom Threadedly secured within the body adjacent to the juncture of the bead '! thereto, for the pur pose of being seated upon the upper edge of the panying drawing and speci?cally pointed out in neck or mouth of the bottle is a ?at ring member , In describing the invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawing wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which: . Figure l is a longitudinal sectional view taken through the closure which forms the subject mat ter of the present invention attached to the neck of a bottle, with the parts in normal position. Figure 2 is a similar view illustrating the fact 40 that the valve remains closed, even though the bottle is tilted on its side to a horizontal position. Figure 3 is a similar view with the bottle in verted for pouring the contents therefrom and through the closure. 45 be later'described. head ‘I having an annular groove 8 in the interior I surface thereof, and the groove 8 is of a depth to . 30 the appended claim. 35 of receiving a split resilient ring 3 for securing the closure to the neck in a manner which will ing therefrom in the event the bottle should fall use and service. 25 having an annular groove therein, for the purpose _ Figure 4 is a detail view of the conical member of the closure. Figure 5 is a detail view of the valve disk. Figure 6 is a detail view of the clamping ring. Figure 7 is a view illustrating the parts of the 50 closure separated and showing the relative posi tion thereof with respect to each other. Referring to the drawing in detail, the refer ence numeral l indicates the neck of a bottle which is enlarged exteriorly about the upper end 55 or mouth thereof to provide an annular ?ange 2 9, the central opening I 0 of which provides a pas sage for the contents of the bottle as will be ap parent, and the ring member 9 acts as a seat for a disk valve l l which is slidably mounted for vertical movement in the body. The disk valve II is re duced annularly about its outer edge on the lower side thereof, and the reduced portion is provided with relatively narrow arcuate shaped slots I2 therein, as clearly shown in Figure 5, to act as ?uid passages, for the contents of the bottle. Threadedly secured within the body above the 40 ring member 9 and provided with an annular threaded flange l3 for that purpose, is a trun cated conical member l4 having a closed top and providing a chamber for a ball weight l5 which is preferably formed from glass or other non 45 corroding material and normally rests upon the disk valve 1 l to hold the same seated against the ring member, as best shown in Figure 1. The ?ange I3 is likewise provided with arcuate slots I6 following the shape thereof, as best shown in Figure 4, and which also provides ?uid passages for the bottle contents. It will be obvious that the disk valve I l is slidably mounted between‘ the ring member and the ?ange l3, and in order to prevent tilting of the disk valve I provide guide 55 2i 2,133,768 pegs I1, the latter being secured thereto and depending therefrom in annular formation for loose ?tting engagement with the wall of the opening of the ring member 9. By reducing the contacting surface of the valve member with respect to the ring member and providing the guide pins I1 and the ball 15, it will be further obvious that it is practically impossible for the valve member to become tilted or stuck in either made in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claim. What I claim is: A non-re?llable closure for containers, and comprising an inverted cup-shaped body having an outlet in the top thereof, detachable means for closing the outlet, means for permanently clamping the body to the container, disk shaped ment thereof to and from its respective positions ‘slidably mounted valve means in said body for is assured. controlling the passage of ?uid therethrough and In the use of. my non-re?llable closure device, being reduced annularly about its outer edge on it will be obvious that when it is desired to pour its lower side, the reduced portion having arcu 15 the contents of the bottle therefrom, the cap ‘6 iate slots therein and providing ?uid passages, a 15 is removed, and the bottle tilted to the position ring member threaded to the wall of the body 10 an open or closed position, therefore free move of Figure 3. When so arranged the ball weight for disposal against the upper end of the con l5 will drop within the chamber provided in the : "tainer-and providing a seat for the valve means member I4, and allow the disk valve todrop ,_ to receive the lower side of the latter, a Weight 20 away from the central opening ID of the ring engageable with the valve means for holding the 20 member, therefore the contents of the bottle will same normally seated, spaced ‘pegs depending pass freely through the vopening ID, the slots I2 and I6, and the nipple 5, but when the bottle is disposed to its normal upright position of Figure ,1, the ball weight will force ‘the disk valve on-its seat, thereby closing the opening l0, and which will remain closed even though the bottle is tilted to a horizontal position of Figure 2, there fore the contents cannot ?ow from the bottle 30 should it become accidentally knocked over. It is thought from the ‘foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of the invention will be readily apparent. It is to be understood that changes may be from the'valve means in annular formation and arranged in‘the opening of the ring member for loose ?tting-engagement with the Wall thereof to guide the valve means, substantially truncated conical chamber means for the weight and over lying the same to prevent ‘access to the valve means, an annular ?ange included in the cham ber means and surrounding the chambered por tion thereof, and said?ange being threaded to the wall of the body :and having arcuate slots therein providing ?uid passages.
