Title
(EN) CLOSURE CLIP FOR SEALING GABLE-TOP CONTAINERS
(FR) PINCE DESTINEE A FERMER DE MANIERE ETANCHE DES RECIPIENTS A PIGNON SUPERIEUR
Abstract
(EN)
A narrow, elongated, hard plastic, U-shaped sealing clip (10) for an opened gabled container (32) providing repeated sealable air tight, leak-resistant closure of the container. Each leg (18a, b) of the U-shaped clip embodies an elongated longitudinally extending bead (20a, b) facing inward of the U, which beads are directly adjacent each other throughout their entire length. The beads are closely spaced and sized to enclose the gabled top of a container, at an upper portion thereof, with a resilient enclosing grip therebetween, to compressively close the portion of the container top (30) which was opened for removal of material from the container. The spacing between the beads is less than the thickness of the container walls whereby, with the slide-on engagement with the gabled top of the container, the sealing clip assumes a compressive V-shaped conformation. The container top functions as a track for the beads, during slide-on engagement of the clip with the container and adjacent terminal ends (24a, b) of the beads being cooperatively bevelled to facilitate initial insertion therbetween, of the top of the gable. The end of the elongated U, opposite the insertion end, is closed with an end wall having a partial slit therein. The end wall serves as a positive stop when the clip is fully seated on the container, and as a reinforcing element for the V-shaped compressive conformation during the engagement of the clip with the container.
(FR)
Pince (10) étroite, allongée, en plastique dur et en forme d'U pour un récipient (32) à pignon ouvert, destinée à produire une fermeture répétée, étanche à l'air et résistante aux fuites dudit récipient. Chaque jambe (18a, b) de la pince en forme d'U possède une nervure (20a, b) allongée qui s'étend longitudinalement et fait face à l'intérieur de l'U, lesdites nervures étant directement adjacentes l'une à l'autre sur toute leur longueur. Lesdites nervures sont séparées par un espace étroit et possèdent une taille appropriée pour renfermer le pignon supérieur d'un récipient, dans une partie supérieure dudit pignon, et de manière à le serrer de façon élastique, et à fermer par compression la partie supérieure du récipient (30) qui a été ouverte en vue de verser la substance contenue dans le récipient. L'écart entre les nervures est inférieur à l'épaisseur des parois du récipient, grâce à quoi, lorsque la pince est emboîtée et glissée sur le pignon supérieur du récipient, la pince de fermeture effectue une compression à l'aide de sa structure en forme de V. La partie supérieure du récipient sert de canal de guidage aux nervures lorsque la pince est emboîtée et glissée sur le récipient, des extrémités terminales adjacentes (24a, b) des nervures étant biseautées de manière coopérante pour faciliter l'introduction initiale entre lesdites nervures de la partie supérieure du pignon. L'extrémité de l'U allongé, à l'opposé de l'extrémité d'introduction, est fermée par une paroi terminale dotée d'une fente partielle. Ladite paroi terminale sert de butée fixe lorsque la pince est complètement emboîtée sur le récipient et d'élément de renforcement pour la structure de compression en forme de V lorsque la pince est emboîtée sur le récipient.
