Title: A CLOSURE ASSEMBLY AND CONTAINER PROVIDED WITH SUCH A CLOSURE ASSEMBLY
Abstract:
In a closure assembly the cap (20) is a quarter-turn cap and the bottom end of the skirt has a pair of diametrically opposed static cover portions (23, 24) separated from one another by a pair of diametrically opposed and open bottomed notches (33, 34) in said skirt. In each notch an indicator segment (41, 42) of the tamper-evident structure is located that is integrally molded to an upper notch rim by a non-frangible hinge (43, 44), preferably a film hinge, and to each of said leading rim and said trailing rim via at least one respective frangible bridge (45, 46, 47, 48). The neck (2) has for each indicator segment an integrally molded boss (12, 13) adapted to engage on a respective indicator segment such that, upon first time opening of the cap by quarter turn rotation in opening direction, the indicator segments are each forced outwardly by the respective boss such that each of said indicator segments pivots about said non-frangible hinge and said frangible bridges break, thereby said outwardly pivoted indicator segments and said broken frangible bridges evidencing the first time opening of the cap.
