Abstract

Container 11 has a cover 10 received over its opening against annular stops 16. Cover 10 has annular groove 12 which mates with corresponding annular groove 13 in container 11. Each annular groove is continuous for 360o. Container 11 also has tangential tubular opening 17. Flexible cylindrical member 14 can be pushed through opening 17 into the confined space between grooves 12 and 13. Member 14 can be urged through opening 17 as long as it is movable, in which case, member 14 passes annularly between grooves 12 and 13 until it moves approximately 360o around cover 10. In this manner, member 14 provides a locking and sealing engagement between cover 10 and container 11. Thus cover 10 is not removable until rod 14 is removed. This can be done by merely pulling member 14 outwardly through opening 17.
