Title (EN) SELF-CLOSING FLUID CONTAINER
(FR) CONTENEUR A LIQUIDE A FERMETURE AUTOMATIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for closing an opening created by a removal of a breakable seal on a liquid container includes a stopper configured to overlap or cover the opening, an elongated arm having an end attached to the stopper for exerting a force on the stopper against the opening, and a flexible bridge having two ends which are affixed on the opposite sides of the wall of the container. A connection line has a first end secured to the stopper and a second end secured to the bridge. The opening is opened by applying force towards a middle of the bridge at the two ends and enabling the bridge to pull the stopper away from the opening via the connection line.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil conçu pour fermer une ouverture créée en retirant un joint déchirable sur un conteneur à liquide. Cet appareil comprend un bouchon conçu pour chevaucher ou recouvrir l'ouverture, un bras allongé qui présente une extrémité attachée au bouchon afin d'exercer une force sur le bouchon contre l'ouverture, ainsi qu'une charnière souple qui présente deux extrémités apposées sur les côtés opposés de la paroi du conteneur. Une ligne de connexion présente une première extrémité fixée au bouchon et une seconde extrémité fixée à la charnière. L'ouverture est dégagée en appliquant une force vers le milieu de la charnière aux deux extrémités et en permettant à la charnière de tirer le bouchon hors de l'ouverture via la ligne de connexion.
