CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1 . A tamper prominent container comprising:

a cover portion comprising a first button lock component of a button locking assembly positioned on a first access tab, and separable from the first access tab by perforations;

a base portion comprising a second button lock component of the button locking assembly on a second access tab, which provides the locking matching pair to said first button lock component, and separable from the second access tab by perforations;

wherein the combination of the cover portion and the base portion in the closed position with the button locking assembly in the locked position form a prominent continuity control (PCC) image, and wherein the button locking assembly in the locked position prevents opening of the container; and

wherein the force required to separate the first button lock component from the second button lock component is greater than the force required to fracture the perforations that separate the button lock components from their respective access tabs, such that upon fracture and removal of the button locking assembly the PCC image makes prominent the evidence of tamper.

2. The tamper prominent container of claim 1 , wherein the first button lock component is a male protrusion button component and the second button lock component is a female recess button lock component.

3. The tamper prominent container of claim 1 or 2, wherein upon removal of the button locking assembly the prominent continuity control (PCC) image makes prominent the evidence of tamper on the residual access tabs,

4. The tamper prominent container of claim 1 or 2, wherein the removal of the button locking assembly leaves residual access tabs that are positioned to afford repeated opening {e.g. , for example, configured to produce alternating access flaps upon full fracture and removal of the button locking assembly).

5. The tamper prominent container of claim 1 or 2, wherein the prominent continuity control (PCC) image is the image of a lock that appears as a broken lock when the container has been opened by the fracture and removal of the button locking assembly.

8. The tamper prominent container of claim 1 or 2, wherein the prominent continuity control (PCC) image is an image of words that make a complete statement when locked.

7. The tamper prominent container of claim 1 or 2, wherein 1 ) the cover portion further comprises a peripheral locking flange assembly, and 2) the base portion comprises an upper peripheral sealing edge configured to substantially eliminate access to the peripheral locking flange assembly of the cover portion when the container is in the closed position.

8. The tamper prominent container of claim 7, wherein the peripheral locking flange assembly comprises an outwardly extending peripheral flange,

9. The tamper prominent container of claim 7, wherein the peripheral locking flange assembly comprises a truncated recessed flange (TRF).

10. The tamper prominent container of claim 1 , 2, 8, or 9 wherein the PCC image comprises an imprint.

1 1. The tamper prominent container of claim 1 , 2, 8, or 9, wherein at least one of the access tabs further comprises additional imprints (e.g., for information or grip).

12. The tamper prominent container of ciaim 1 , 2, 8, or 9, wherein at least one of the access flaps is configured with a grip ridge.

13. The tamper prominent container of claim 1 , 2, 8, or 9, further comprising an arced edge lock.

14. The tamper prominent container of claim 13, wherein the arced edge lock improves leak resistance.

15. The tamper prominent container of claim 1 , 2, 8, 9, or 14, wherein the cover portion further comprises a stacking ridge configured to allow a second container to be stacked on top of the tamper prominent container.

18. The tamper prominent container of ciaim 1 , 2, 8, 9, or 14, wherein the cover portion further comprises an optimized surface engineered for maximum labeling compatibility.

17. The tamper prominent container of claim 1 , 2, 8, 9, or 14, wherein the base portion further comprises a return wail engineered to improve structural integrity.

18. The tamper prominent container of ciaim 1 , 2, 8, 9, or 14, wherein the base portion further comprises side ribs engineered to add structural strength and stiffness to the tamper prominent container.

19. The tamper prominent container of claim 1 , 2, 8, 9, or 14, wherein the base portion further comprises at least one chamfered corner engineered to improve material distribution.

20. The tamper prominent container of ciaim 1 , 2, 8, 9, or 14, wherein the shape of the container is selected from the group consisting of square, rectangle, round, elliptical, triangular, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, oval, quatrefoil, and curvilinear triangle.

21. The tamper prominent container of claim 1 , 2, 8, 9, or 14, wherein the volume capacity is selected from 2 US fluid ounces to 84 US fluid ounces.

22. The tamper prominent container of 21 , wherein the dimensions of the container ranges from 0.5 inch by 1 .5 inches by 1.5 inches to 6.0 inches by 14.0 inches by 14.0 inches.

23. The tamper prominent container of claim 1 , 2, 8, 9, 14, or 22 wherein the tamper prominent container is comprised of plastic.

24. The tamper prominent container of claim 1 , 2, 8, 9, 14, or 22, wherein the cover portion further comprises distortion control printed graphics.

25. The tamper prominent container of claim 1 , 2, 8, 9, 14, or 22, wherein the base portion further comprises distortion control printed graphics.

26. The tamper prominent container of claim 25, wherein the printed graphics comprise 2 or more colors.

27. The tamper prominent container of claim 25, wherein the printed graphics comprise 3 or more colors.

28. A tamper prominent container comprising:

a cover portion comprising a first button lock component of a button locking assembly positioned on a first access tab, and separable from the first access tab by perforations, wherein the first button lock component is a male protrusion button component;

a base portion comprising a second button lock component of the button

locking assembly on a second access tab, which provides the locking matching pair to said first button lock component, and separable from the second access tab by perforations, wherein the second button lock component is a female recess button lock component;

wherein the combination of the cover portion and the base portion in the closed position with the button locking assembly in the locked position form a prominent continuity control (PCC) image of a lock that appears as a broken lock when the button locking assembly is fractured and removed, and wherein the button locking assembly in the locked position prevents opening of the container; and

wherein the force required to separate the first button lock component from the second button lock component is greater than the force required to fracture the perforations that separate the button lock components from their respective access tabs, such that upon fracture and removal of the button locking assembly the PCC image makes prominent the evidence of tamper on the residual access tabs, wherein the removal of the button locking assembly leaves residual access tabs that are positioned to afford repeated opening (e.g. , for example, configured to produce alternating access flaps upon full fracture and removal of the button locking assembly).

29. A method of increasing prominence of the evidence of tamper with a container comprising the steps of

incorporating a prominent continuity control (PCC) image into a container with a button locking assembly according to claim 1 , 2, 8, 9, 14, 22, 28, or 27, such that upon fracture and removal of the button locking assembly of these containers, the PCC image makes prominent the evidence of tamper.
