The container has a tubular body having a peripheral lateral wall provided with an upper end portion and a lower end portion defining an upper retention hook and a lower retention hook to which is double-seamed a lower end wall. An upper end wall is conformed to incorporate a peripheral upper skirt presenting an end edge defining an inverted U shaped upper closure hook to be seated onto the upper retention hook sandwiching an elastic sealing element therebetween. The upper closure hook and the upper retention hook and also a portion of the peripheral upper skirt and a confronting region of the upper end portion are deformed for seaming the upper closure hook onto the upper retention hook and to form, respectively, a retention rib and a retention groove which tightly fits the retention rib.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
