, flaps I2 and tucks Patented Jan. 25, 1949 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,460,230 DISPLAY AND SHIPPING CONTAINER James K. Makrianes, Longmeadow, Mass. Application July 18, 1947, Serial No. 761,931 2 Claims. (Cl. 211560) This invention relates to improvements in display and shipping containers for golf clubs and the like.
The principal objects of the invention are directed to the provision of apparatus for displaying and shipping a plurality of golf clubs and is characterized by its simplicity, low costconstruction and rigidity.
The construction includes a combination of separate cooperating components each of which is. .easily and readily formed and constructed and arranged for ready and easy assembly to provide a unitary construction wherein aplurality of golf clubs may be supported and displayed and protected in shipping against injury.
With the foregoing and various other novel features and advantages and other objects of my invention as will become more apparent as the description proceeds, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more particularly pointed out in the claims hereunto annexed and more fully described and referred to in connection with the accompanying drawings wherein:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of foundation components of the box construction embodying the features of the invention;
Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a holder of the box of the invention;
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of an upper cap of the box of the construction;
Fig. 4 is a perspective view of an upper wedge constituting a component of the box construction;
Fig. 5 is a perspective View of a lower shell;
Fig. 6 is a. perspective view of a lower support;
Fig. 7 is a perspective view of lower cap;
Fig. 8 is a plan View of the box construction of the invention; and
Figs. 9 and 10 are sectional elevational views on the lines 99 and I 0-40 of Fig. 8.
Referring now'to the drawing more in detail, the invention will be fully described.
A foundation 2 is provided as shown in Fig; 1 and includes a longitudinal base member 4 having outer walls 6, upper walls 8, inner walls l0,
The member 2 is preferably made from fibrous material such as cardboard or corrugated board and its longitudinal edge portions are scored so that the member 6, Ill, l2 and It may be bent to the form shown wherein the said member has longitudinally extending side walls formed by laterally spaced members. A holder member includes a longitudinally extending part 22 and and end walls 86. This shell is similar to 24 with-an upstanding guide part zfitherebetween. A lower wall part 28 extends outwardly from the lower end of the part Z l-and has an 'outer wall part 30 and has a tuck 32 extending therefrom. This holder member '26 may be :formed from corrugated material and is scored so that it may be set up to the form shown in Fig. 2. The platform 32 is provided with any number of openings 36 for receiving the heads of golf clubs and said openings may be'of any desired shape and size and arranged in any desired spacing so as to receive golf clubs having various shaped heads. The guide 25 is provided with a plurality of openings 38 into which extend slots 46 having opposite sides converging into said openings. There may be as many of the openings and-slots as may be desired and they may be of any desired dimensions in order to receive the shafts of golf clubs the heads of which are received in the openings 38.
An upper cap 43 is shown in Fig. 3 and includes an upper wall 44, front and rear walls 46 and 48 and end walls 50. This cap may be made from corrugated board and scored in such a manner that the walls may be related as shown, and segured in set-up relation by stays represented by An upper wedge 54 is shown in Fig. 4 and includes forward and rear walls 56 and 58 and upper and lower walls 60 and 69'. The walls are arranged, as shown, to provide a tapering tube and this component may be made from corrugated board which is scored so that wall members may be set up in the relation shown and secured by stays such as indicated by S2. A lower cap is shown at'fifi in Fig. 7 and includes a lower wall 68. front and rear .walls 79 and i2 and end walls M.
This capmay be made rom corrugated board 'Which is scored so that walls may be set up to form'a box-like cap and the side and encl'walls may be secured-in" set-up relation by stays 14. A lower shell is shown at lB'inFig. 5 and includes a lower wall, 36, front and rear walls 82 and 84 the cap 66, the walls thereof are secured together by stays 81. A lower support '90, shown in Fig. 6, has an upper wall 92, front and rear walls 94 and 96 and end walls 98. This support may be made from corrugated material with the wall members secured together by stays I99. This member is adapted for telescoping engagement with the member 78.
The components are ing manner.
The holder 20 is disposed onthe member 4 of the foundation and at the upper end of the assembled in the followfoundation and over the member 22 the wedge member 54 is inserted between the side walls of the foundation member. slipped over the upper ends of the foundation walls and the wedge 54 as shown in Fig. 10.
The lower support 90 is inserted in the shell 18 with the wall 92 of the lower support 90 uppermost and the shell with the support therein is slipped between and in the transverse tube formed by the walls 28, 30,. 32, and 34' of the holder so that the wall 92 of the lower support is disposed below the platform 32, see Fig. 9.
The lower cap 66 is then slipped over the lower portion 24 of the holder, the lower wall 28' thereof and the forward wall 30, also as shown in Fig. 9.
A plurality of golf clubs may have their heads inserted in the openings 36 of the platform 32 so that the heads rest on the supporting walls 92 with the shafts of the clubs disposed in the sockets 38-. The upper ends of the shafts of the clubs abut: the. lower side: 60 of the wedge member 54-. The wedge memberis shaped to accommodate a set of golf clubs: which are" usually of graduated lengths thereby the clubs are held in place and not only protected but are displayed.
The construction is" adapted for shipment of the clubs and the components maybe-secured together in any convenient manner.
The slots 40- are tapering and the jointure thereof with the openings 38 are slightly smaller than the diameter of. theshafts of the clubs so that the shafts are snapped past what may be called restricted openings into the openings 38.
The wedge and cap at the upper end of the construction together with the double thickness side walls reinforce the upper end of the box construction. Likewise the walls 28', 30, 32, and 34 at the lower end of the holder in conjunction with the shell, lower support, and lower cap provide a strong rigidconstruction at the lower end of the box. Althoughthe components are not only adapted for their'particular' function but are related and cooperate to form a unitary rugged construction.
Ashas been stated, various components may be made from corrugated board, cardboard or the like and when the parts are assembled the construction or any portion thereof may be covered by any desired covering material such as paper or the like and the same may be decorated in any manner desired.
The invention may be embodied in other specific form without departing; from the essential characteristics thereof. bodiments are therefore to be considered in all respects merely-as being illustrative and not as being restrictive, the scope of the invention being indicated by theappended claims rather than by the foregoing description, and all modifications and variations: as fall within: the meaning and purview and range. of'equivalency'of the appended claims arethereforeintended to be embraced therein.
