  • Patent number: 10124935
    Abstract: An open ended container and lid combination provides a tamper indicator with a lid and container combination which can be pushed on by a manufacture and then the tamper indicator removed to allow the lid to be unscrewed relative to the container, while also still being able to be screwed back to a closed, and possibly sealed configuration. Two possible seals may be used comprising a seal against an interior surface of an upwardly extending wall of the container and an extension/groove combination of the lid and container.

  • Patent number: 8839976
    Abstract: An open ended container with locking lid can provide a number of features. The lid and the container have cooperating threads. The lid has also has a locking mechanism connected to the lid, such as from a downwardly extending wall. The container has a stop, in some embodiments accessible from above, such as with downwardly and possibly linearly biased engagement members of the locking mechanism. In fact, some embodiments have a stop as a portion of satellite ring.

  • Patent number: 8528772
    Abstract: A rectangular container has a child resistant lid assembly wherein the rectangular closure is provided with an opening. The child lid assembly is preferably removably mounted on the closure to close the opening and is preferably positioned during shipment and storage to be substantially planar with the closure. The side walls of the container may be tapered to facilitate nesting with a similar container. The locking mechanism on the closure engages an exterior portion of the lid, such as at least one of a plurality of teeth in a locked configuration.

  • Patent number: 8474644
    Abstract: An open ended container with locking lid provides the tamper indication. The lid and the container have cooperating threads. The lid has also has a locking mechanism connected to the lid, such as from a downwardly extending wall. The tamper indicator is preferably automatically deployed upon initial transition of the lid to the closed configuration but in the event of a mistake, authorized parties may remove the tamper indicator, install a new one and reset the container assembly to a set configuration.

    Abstract: An open ended container with locking lid can provide a number of features. The lid and the container have cooperating threads. The lid has also has a locking mechanism connected to the lid, such as from a downwardly extending wall. The container has a stop, in some embodiments accessible from below, such as with an upwardly extending abutment of the locking mechanism. In fact, some embodiments have a stop as a portion of teeth in which at least some of the teeth which are not in contact with an abutment of the locking mechanism, engage the threads of the lid to assist in retaining the lid on the container.

  • Patent number: 6729491
    Abstract: A lid for use with an open top container threadably engages with the open head container to secure the lid to the container. A seal is located between tapered surfaces of the lid and the container member such that compression of the seal occurs gradually as the lid is threadably secured onto the container member. The lid is equipped with a torquing tool which pivots at along a ridge at the edge of the lid. In a stored configuration, the torquing tool has a handle which is at least partially contained within a chamber in the lid. A base of the torquing tool has a top surface which is coplanar with a top surface of a portion the lid in the stored configuration. To utilize the torquing tool, the handle is rotated about the pivot, to an extended position. The handle may then assist an operator in twisting the lid relative to the container member.

  • Patent number: 6170691
    Abstract: A container assembly includes a container member having an open end, and a lid threadably engagable with the container member for closing the open end of the container member. A locking member is provided on the lid which is engagable with a latch member located on an upper surface of the container member. The locking member is pivotable about a horizontal axis and prevents rotation of the lid with respect to the container member when the locking member is engaged with the latch member. A seal is provided between the lid and the container member. The seal is located between wall members of the lid and the container member such that the seal is gradually compressed as the lid is threadably secured to the container member.

The locking member is pivotable about a horizontal axis and prevents rotation of the lid with respect to the container member when the locking member is engaged with the latch member. A seal is provided between the lid and the container member. The seal is located between tapered wall members of the lid and the container member such that the seal is gradually compressed as the lid is threadably secured to the container member. The configuration of the lid and the container member, along with the seal, presents a torturous path for fluid movement, thus effectively sealing the container assembly.
