Application filed March 19, 1923. Serial No. 625,935.
character termed as self-locking, in which I the closing flaps on one or more. sides, have The flaps 3 and 5 arejformed in manner for closing flaps, each being pref a structure which will cause them to interlook when pushed together.
It is also my object to provide in a eontamer, for a handle device whereby the container may be used instead of a basket for a wlde variety of purposes.
I accomplish my objects by that certain construction and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more specifically pointed out and claimed.
In the drawings: Q
Figure 1 is a perpective view of the containewith the interlocking flaps disengaz Figure 2 is a like view of the container with the flaps closed.
Figure 3 is a perspective view on a smaller scale showin the other side of the box, in which two- 0 the flaps have been developed asahandle.
Figure 4 is a plan of one kind of blank from which my box can be made.
The box will be constructed in any usual manner for making boxes.
although the material is not an essential,
since no substantial flexibility is required to accomplish the lock:
the usual In the form illustrated I show a pasted paper board box,
- erably one half of the size of the openi and each having a notch 7 cut therein, the
notch having a curved wall 7, and a straight wall 7*. The curved walls are on the same side of the box, in each flap 3 and 5.
The flap 4 has a tapered formation terminating in an oval shaped piece 8, which is larger than the combined area of the two notches 7, chiefly in its lengthwise component. .VVhen laid down over the flaps 3 and 5, the outer wall of this oval shaped portion will about lie beyond the straight walls 7 of the notches 7.
The flap 6 has its general shape a taper- .ing one, and terminates in a flaring triangular shaped portion 9' similar to a wide fish tail, the outer wall of which will come not quite flush with the curved walls of the notches 7, and the tips of which extend across a greater area than the notches combined.
As a result of this structure, the four flaps, may be arranged as shown in Figure 1, with the flaps 3 and 5 laid down as ifclosin the box, the flap 4 next laid down, an finally the flap 6 laid down over the three others. Theoperator then pushes inwardly of the box on the assembly of flaps,with the result that the flaps 3 and 5 will swing down, and away from each other, expanding the opening between the notches, and the portions 8 and 9 of the flaps 4 and 6 will slip through the space left between the notches. A release of the pressure will result in the flaps coming back to normal closed position with the tips of the portion 9 caught under the inner walls of the notches, and the porthan the openings left for them to passthrough.
The way to open this structure is to push the flaps back in again, and break up the interlocked relation.
Referring to the flaps at the other side of the box, it will be noted (Fig.3), that the flaps 20 and 255 are formed as usual in boxes of'the character selected for illustration and that the tworemaining flaps 22 and 23 are formed longer than necessary and havescore lines 24, defining an extra extension 25 on each fla In these extensions, I form a wide slot 2 or (if desired) aseriesof finger holes, so that when the extensions 25 are turned upwardly alongside of each other, as in the drawings, the two slots serve as fingers holes, by which the user may carry the box.
If desired the flaps 25 may be omitted and hand holes 30 formed in the container flaps 22and23, so that the box may be carried in two hands. One advantage of this last form is that the flaps 22 and 23 can be turned in when. closing the box for shipment and will leave on unbroken surface exposed, as formed by flaps and 21. c
It will be of interest to note tliat this Structure was designed primarily for use of market gardeners. The box is designed to be shipped flat, with the tubular body portion laid flat and the flaps extended out in line'with the body. The gardener will erect the box b opening. out the body, and arhold exactly a bushel,
ranging t e bottom flaps into interlocked relation as shown. He will then place his goods into the box, and close the top thereof to serve as a protection to the goods, and as a handle.
The boxes can be made in this style to half bushel, peck, or the like, and plainly printed as such. They will be easier to handle than a bushel or half bushel basket, and in my opinion easier than any basket, and can be made very much cheaper. In degree of protection given to the goods in the market wagon, delivery wagon, customers hands or the like, it is of course far superior to a basket. The problem of storage of baskets is also solved, as these boxes can be laid fiat when not in use. Also they may be made strong and durable, and will last as long as required.
The invention in its several aspects is also applicable to many 'other uses, and it does not have to be in the form of a knockdown box. vTo illustate a method of manufacture of a knock-down form of pasted paper boardbox I have shown a blank in Figure 4; In this blank, the sections a, b,
0, and (1 form the body portion of the completed box, and the flap e is stitched as indieated by dotted lines f, to the other end of the blank,- making thereof a tubular construction, with cross score lines g, defining four side walls.
Along one side of the box are the flaps 3, 4, 5 and 6 and at the other are the flaps 20, 21, 22 and 23, constructed, as shown in the other views and as described above. Lengthwise score lines 9 define the lines of fold for the flaps with relation to the body. The score lines 24 are also shown.
Having thus described my invention. what I claim as new and desire to secure by Let; tors Patent, is
1. In a box formed of fibre board or the like, the combination with a body portion forming side walls thereof, of-four opposed bottom flaps articulated to the body portion, one set of opposed pairs of said flaps having cut-out portions in their ends, said out out portions arranged to register with each otherto form a continuous aperture across the interior of the-box when said two flaps "only are folded in thereover, the other set of opposed flaps having wing shaped extensions adapted to fit within the aperture when in compressed position within the box, and to look within the aperture when said first named flaps are withdrawn to right angled position with respect to the side walls of the box.
2. In a box formed of fibre board or the like, the combination with a body portion forming side walls thereof, of four opposed bottom flaps articulated to the body portion, one set of opposed pairs of said fiaps having cut-out portions in their ends, said out out portions arranged to register with each other to form a continuous aperture across the interior of the box when said two flaps only are folded in thereover, the other set of opposed flaps having wing shaped extensions adapted to fit within the aperture when in compressed position within the box, and to look within the aperature when said first named flaps are withdrawn to right angled position with respect to the side walls of the box, and means for forming a handle of the flaps at the upper end of said box whereby said box may be used as a substitute for a mar ket basket or the like.
