  • Patent number: 4324339
    Abstract: A safety device for use with a container with a screw cap. The device which preferably is made from plastics material has an annular body portion with an inwardly tapered inner wall. The screw cap is insertable into the body portion which is so dimensioned that the orientation of the cap is substantially maintained. The cap is held captive inside the body portion by means of a deflectable flange at the mouth of the body portion which permits the cap to be placed on, or be removed from, its closure position on the container but the cap and the device are nonetheless rotatable relatively to each other. The device restricts direct manual access to the cap. The device is frictionally engageable with the cap by urging the device towards the container. The device and the cap may then be rotated together to screw the cap on or off the container.

  • Patent number: 3955821
    Abstract: Apparatus for use in training golfers including two foot rests on which the golfer places his feet when addressing a golf ball during play of a stroke, the foot rest intended for the left foot, in the case of right handed golfers, or the foot rest intended for the right foot, in the case of left handed golfers being adapted to rock on a retaining structure from a substantially horizontal position to a position in which its foot supporting surface faces outwards relative to the other foot rest. The retaining structure holds a leg rest near the other foot rest to bear against an outside portion of a leg of a golfer during training of the golfer. A rod supports the rockable foot rest and includes spigot formations on each end which fit in complementary shaped formations on the retaining structure to provide different spaced apart positions between the two foot rests.
