Title
(EN) TAB-INTERCONNECTED DISPENSING CLOSURE AND CONTAINER NECK FINISH
(FR) fermeture de distributeur solidarisée par languette et finition de goulot de contenant
Abstract
(EN)
A package (20) includes a container (22) having a neck finish (28) with at least one external thread segment (30) and at least one pair of angularly spaced external lugs (52, 53) disposed beneath the thread segment. A closure (20) has a cylindrical wall (46) with at least one internal thread segment (48) for mating engagement with the external thread segment on the container neck finish and at least one tab (50) extending from the wall for receipt between the lugs to resist removal of the closure from the container neck finish and aligns the closure with the container body. The clockwise-disposed lug (52) prevents over-tightening of the closure on the container neck finish, while the counterclockwise-disposed lug (53) resists unthreading of closure from the container neck finish when the tab on the closure skirt has been received between the lugs. The clockwise-disposed lug (52) that prevents over-tightening of the closure on the container neck finish has a greater radial dimension than the counterclockwise-disposed lug (53), preferably by being radially thicker than the counterclockwise-disposed lug.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un paquet (20) comportant un contenant (22) possédant une finition de goulot (28) avec au moins un segment fileté externe (30) et au moins une paire de tenons externes espacés selon un angle donné (52, 53) disposés sous le segment fileté. Une fermeture (20) possède une paroi cylindrique (46) avec au moins un segment fileté interne (48) pour accouplement conjugué avec le segment fileté externe sur la finition de goulot du contenant et au moins une languette (50) s'étendant depuis la paroi pour être reçue entre les tenons pour résister à la dépose de la fermeture de la finition de goulot du contenant et alignant la fermeture avec le corps de contenant. Le tenon disposé dans le sens horaire (52) empêche tout serrage excessif de la fermeture sur la finition de goulot du contenant, tandis que le tenon disposé dans le sens antihoraire (53) résiste à tout dévissage de la fermeture par rapport à la finition de goulot de contenant lorsque la languette sur la jupe de fermeture est reçue entre les tenons. Le tenon disposé dans le sens horaire (52) empêchant tout serrage excessif de la fermeture sur la finition de goulot de contenant possède une dimension radiale supérieure à celle du tenon disposé dans le sens antihoraire (53), de préférence en étant radialement plus épais que le tenon disposé dans le sens antihoraire.
