Patented Nov. 15, 1938 2,136,896 UNITED STATES‘ PATENT OFFICE 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 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. , 3., In combination with a bottle having diamet 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 the said weakened area, a wire loop secured to 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.
