Blow-molded containers such as the 1.75-liter size for liquor beverages have an everting grip problem. Using inwardly facing grip geometry, consisting of two convex surfaces that come together at an inward ridge, eliminates the problem. The combination of the two convex surface sidewalls further eliminates the need for lateral reinforcing ribs in both cold-fill and hot-fill containers. The curved sidewalls come together at an edge offset the central axis of the container.
We claim: 1. A blow-molded container having a central axis and made of a polymer comprising: a body having a sidewall, adjacent the sidewall a shoulder and a bottom, adjacent the shoulder a neck, adjacent the neck a finish providing an opening to the container; wherein, said sidewall has a pair of inwardly facing grip recesses spaced about its periphery; each of said grip recesses being defined by a top wall and a bottom wall and a first sidewall and a second sidewall extending between the top wall and the bottom wall; wherein said first sidewall and sa...
