BOTTLE SEAL
Aron Solomon, New York, N. Y., assignor of one
half to Belle F. Marton, New York, N. Y.
Application December 1, 1937, Serial No. 177,395
3 Claims. (Cl. 215—7)
This invention ‘relates to seals or closures for view through a bottle neck, showing my improved
bottles, jars and the like, and has for one of its seal or closure as applied thereto;
‘objects the provision of a closure of this nature
which will protect the contents of the bottles or
UK ' jars in connection with whichit is used.
Another object of the invention is the provi
sion of such a closure or seal' which is adapted
to pass through the neck of the bottle or con
tainer as well as through the cork or stopper
10' used in connection with such container and pro
vided with means at its ends to prevent unwar
ranted removal of the seal, thus preventing tam
pering with the container contents.
A further object of the invention is the provi
15 sion of a bottle closure or seal, the said seal com
prising a member having a pair of wires which
pass through the bottle neck and cork, the said
member being provided at one end thereof with
means for twisting the wires about themselves
to draw a toothed plate
on the bottle neck and
same bottle may not be
making the said bottle
against a weakened area
break same, so that the
used a second time, thus
non-re?llable in a cer
tain sense.
A still further object of the invention is the
provision of a device of this nature, comprising
a multi-pronged member, at least one of which
prongs is adapted to pass through the container
and cork or stopper with which it is used and
30 be twisted at its free end with the free ends of
the other prongs which encircle the outside of
the container.
Another object is to produce a device of the
. character described in which the maximum sim
‘ plicity of construction and operation is secured.
Other objects and advantages will appear as
the nature of the improvements is better under
stood, the invention consisting substantially in
the novel arrangement and co-relation of parts
40 herein fully described and illustrated in the ac‘
companying drawing, wherein similar reference
characters are used to describe ‘corresponding
parts throughout the several views, and then ?
nally pointed out and speci?cally de?ned and
' indicated in the appended claims.
The disclosure made the basis of exemplifying
'the present inventive concept suggests a prac
tical embodiment thereof, but the invention is
not to be restricted to the exact details of this
disclosure, and the latter, therefore, is to be
understood from an illustrative, rather than a
restrictive standpoint.
In the accompanying drawing
55 Figure 1 is a fragmental longitudinal sectional
Figure 2 is a cross sectional view thereof taken
on line 2--2 Figure 1; and
1

-
Figure 3 is a fragmental side elevation look
ing from the right of Figure 1.
Referring now to the drawing, 15 indicates
5
the neck of a bottle having a ‘recess I6 to pro
vide a weakened or frangible wall area H. The
said weakened or frangible area is provided with 10
a pair of holes or openings [8 into which extend
or project tooth-like formations 19 on a plate 20.
The plate 20 is secured to a preferably soft wire
loop 2! having prongs or legs 22 which pass
through the openings 18 in one side of the neck 15
of the bottle as well as through openings 23 in a
cork stopper 24 and emerge through openings
25 in alinement with the openings I8 but dis
posed on the opposite side of the neck. At the
area of the bottle neck where the wire prongs
22 emerge the bottle neck is slightly?attened or
countersunk as at 26. Secured to the ends of the
wire prongs or legs 22 is a thumb piece 21 hav
ing a reduced portion 28 having a rounded end
29 ?tting against the ?attened portion 26.
To remove or pour out the contents of the
bottle, the thumb piece 21 is turned tending to
twist the ends of the wire prongs 22 one about
the other, and simultaneously therewith drawing
the teeth l9 inwardly, such action causing the
weakened or frangible area I’! between the holes
l8 to snap or break off. By further turning or
twisting the thumb pieces 21 the said wire prongs
are broken off, the said thumb piece 21 and the
cork may then be withdrawn from’ the bottle. 35
It will readily be seen that due to the breaking of
the bottle at I‘! the said bottle is unfit for re-use
and cannot again be ?lled with spurious liquor
or other contents to be passed off as the original,
as it is impossible to replace the broken por
tion 11. It is also to be understood that due to
the fact that the cork or stopper is in place in
the neck of the bottle when the break occurs, the
broken glass cannot fall into the bottle contents.
It is to be understood that the tensile strength 45
of the wire from which the loop and prong ar
rangement 2l-22 is formed is such that the
weakened area I’! will break when the thumb
piece 2'! is turned long before the wire prongs
can possibly be sheared. It is further to be un
derstood that the outer edges of the openings 25
through which the wire prongs 22 extend need
not be sharp but may be rounded or chamfered
so as to prevent any shearing tendency between
the said prongs ‘and openings. Likewise the 55
2
2,136,898
thickness of the area [1 may be such that a direct
pull of any appreciable amount upon the thumb
piece 2‘! will exert su?icient strain upon the said
area to fracture same without ?rst turning the
?nger piece 21.
'
From the foregoing it will be seen that I have
provided a simple inexpensive yet eii‘icient bottle
caused to exert a pressure on the bottle to frac
ture same.
2. A seal for use in connection with a corked
bottle having perforations extending through
the cork and both sides of the bottle, the said C21
seal comprising a toothed plate, the teeth of
which are adapted to enter the perforations on
or jar seal which will make the bottle or con
one side of the bottle, a pair of wires secured to
tainer with which it is used non-re?llable.
the plate and extending through all of the per
I desire it understood that wherever in the
claims the term bottle is used all other containers
forations, and a ?nger piece secured to the wires 10
at the end opposite the plate, whereby the teeth
on the plate may be caused to exert a pressure
on the bottle to fracture same.
such as jars or the like are to be included, whether
made of glass composition, paper, or any other
suitable material, and wherever the term “cork”
, is used, any stopper, such as glass, rubber, etc.
is intended to be included.

rically opposite pairs of openings near the mouth 15
thereof, the openings comprising each pair being
Having described my invention what I claim
spaced one from the other, a weakened area on
as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. In combination with a bottle having diamet
spaced one from the other, a weakened area on
the bottle through which one pair of openings
extend, a stopper having a pair of spaced apart
openings extending therethrough and. in aline
ment with the bottle openings, a toothed plate,
the teeth of which extend into the openings at
the bottle through which one pair of openings
extend, a stopper having a pair of spaced apart
the said plate and extending through all of the
rically opposite pairs of openings near the mouth
thereof, the openings comprising each pair being
. openings extending therethrough and in aline
ment with the bottle openings, a toothed plate,
the teeth of which extend into the openings at
the said weakened area, a wire loop secured to
the said plate and extending through all of the
aforementioned openings, and means secured to
the wire loop at the end opposite to the toothed
plate, whereby the teeth on the plate may be

aforementioned openings, a flattened area on 25
‘the bottle on the side diametrically opposite the
weakened area, through which the other pair of
openings extend, a ?nger piece secured to the
wire loop at the said ?attened bottle area, and
a rounded end on the said ?nger piece in abut 30
ment with the said ?attened area.
