  • Publication number: 20210002037
    Abstract: A container system includes a container having a plurality of sidewalls and a rim extending from the sidewalls at a top of the container. The rim of the container includes a first sealing part and a second sealing part. Parts of the rim extend along arcs as viewed from above the container. The container system also includes a lid for sealing the container, with the lid having a rim that includes a first sealing part that is configured to contact the first sealing part of the rim of the container to form a first sealing area, and a second sealing part that is configured to contact the second sealing part of the rim of the container to form a second sealing area. Parts of the rim of the lid extend along arcs as viewed from above the lid. The container may be tightly sealed by the lid.

  • Publication number: 20200385651
    Abstract: Provided are cleaning compositions that may include (a) a glycine betaine amide, (b) an acidifying agent, (c) polysaccharide thickener, and (d) water. Commonly, the glycine betaine amide may include one or more compounds of formula (I): Me3N+—CH2—C(0)—NH—R X? (I) wherein R is an aliphatic group having 8 to 22 carbon atoms and X? represents an inorganic or organic anion. Commonly, the composition has a pH of no more than about 4, a viscosity of no more than about 1,500 cP at a shear rate of 10 at 25° C., and/or a viscosity of at least about 250 cP at a shear rate of 50 at 25° C. (where the viscosities are determined with a Brookfield Cone/Plate viscometer). The cleaning composition may exhibit a unique sheer thinning profile, such that the composition thins less after being sprayed onto a surface and thereby provides a longer contact time than conventional products.

  • Publication number: 20200377263
    Abstract: A hinged slider for a closure assembly of a bag includes a top wall and a pair of legs extending from the top wall. A first leg and a second leg of the pair each includes a top end attached to the top wall and a bottom end opposing the top end. A pair of wings is hingedly attached to the pair of legs. A first wing and a second wing of the pair of wings is each hingedly attached to the bottom end of the first leg and second leg, respectively, as a hinge mechanism. The first wing and the second wing hinge downwardly in order to install the slider onto the closure assembly.

  • Patent number: 10850690
    Abstract: An electronic device for use in a vehicle and method for controlling the same are provided. The device includes a battery sensor configured to detect a battery voltage when connected to a vehicle's battery, and a processor in communication with the battery sensor. The processor is configured to monitor the battery voltage of a vehicle's battery using the battery sensor and identify at least one transition in the battery voltage. The processor is also configured to determine an operational state of the vehicle based on the transition and the battery voltage, and control the electronic device in accordance with the operational state of the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20200361663
    Abstract: A slider for a closure assembly of a bag. The slider has a top wall and a pair of wings extending from the top wall. A first wing of the pair of wings includes a first finger pad and a surrounding lip, and a second wing of the pair of wings includes a second finger pad and a surrounding lip. The first and second finger pads each have a major axis dimension that is larger than a minor axis dimension to provide a slider with an improved ergonomic feel.
