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
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.
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

neat and simple in construction, inexpensive to
manufacture, and extremely e?icient in operation,

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

will be had to the accompanying drawing wherein
like characters denote like or corresponding parts
throughout the several views, and in which:

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

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
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

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

therein providing ?uid passages.
