GEORGE PIPER, OF SAULT STE. MARIE, ONTARIO, CAN'l-SJDA.

PROTECTIVE DEVICE FOR E'APER ROLLS AND CORES.

Application filed May 10, 1923. Serial No. 638,055.

and Cores, of which the following is a specification.

In shipping the large rolls of newsprint paper according to present methods, it has been the practice to go to considerable trouble and expense to protect the rolls from 'dama e durin transit such as b linin the b b 7 b floor of the cars with lumber and paper, by similarly lining. the sides of the car to prevent chafing; by providing protection for the tops of the rolls from leaky cars; and by providing protection for roll ends to prevent cutting and amming of the paper ends.

This paper is wound upon heavy cores, which after the paper has been used, are returned to the mills for further use, thus necessitating careful bundling or packing to prevent any of the cores being lost in transit.

It is my object therefore to devise a protective device which may be quickly and easily applied to a roll of paper so as to give it every protection necessary during transit, which carrier may be used over and over again, and which, when being returned to the mills, may be used for bundling the cores.

I attain my object by means of the constructions hereinafter described and illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a roll of paper showing my carrier applied thereto;

Fig. 2 is a similar view of a bundle of cores ready for return shipment to the mill; and

Fig. 3 is a sectional view of one end of the roll showing the metal plate in position.

In the drawings like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in the different figures.

1 is a roll of paper and on each end of this roll I place a cap or cover. It should be stated, however, that I preferably place between the end of the roll and the cap a metal plate, which plate maybe perfectly flat, but is preferably provided with a flange extending a short distance down the side of the roll.

Itach cap comprises a main portlon 2 of canvas, duck, or other suitable material, which portion 2 is provided with a rim 3 of similar material. The parts 2 and 3 are suitably stitched or otherwise secured together, and at their point of connection are pro vided with a flexible re-inforcement l, preferably of leather, while the'outer edge of the rim 3 is also provided with a reinforcement 5, also preferably of leather.

The main portion 2 is also provided with a re-inforcement 6 substantially midway between its centre and its edge for a purpose which will hereinafter appear.

In the reinforcement 5 are provided a series of eyelets 7, while the reinforcement 4 is also provided with a series of eyelets 8.

The cap for each end of the roll 1 will be of exactly similar construction.

The carrier is used as follows: The metal plate previously referred to will be applied to one end of the roll and the cap placed over the end of the roll. A metal plate and cap will be similarly provided on the other end of the roll. A cord or lace 9 .will be threaded through the eyelets 7 of each cap as indicated in Fig. 1 to retain the caps in position, and with the roll provided with these. protecting caps, there is very little danger of the roll being damaged in transit.

When it is desired to return a number of cores, they are secured together as indicated in Fig. 2, and as the bundle 11 of cores to be sent back will be of smaller size than the roll of paper, the re-inforcement 6 will protect the ends of the cores instead of the re-inforcement 1. The cord 9 will be threaded through the eyelets 7 in the same manner as with the roll of paper, but in addition a cord 10 is passed through the eyelets 8 to take care, in pleats, of slack caused by the reduced diameter of the bundle of cores, and at the same time to hold the cores tightly together.

From the construction described it will be seen that I have devised a carrier which will thoroughly protect the roll of paper as well as the bundle of cores to be returned to the mill; which may be used over and over again: and which may be constructed at small cost as compared with the cost of the special lining and packing as referred to in the preamble of this specification.

What I claim as my invention is 1. In a protective device, the combination of a pair of caps adapted to be fitted one on each end of a roll of paper, each cap comprising a main portion providedwith a flexill) Q 1,491,0es

ible rim; and lacing connecting said rims to retain the caps in position on the roll, each of said caps also being adapted to be bent on a circle to fit the end of a .roll of lesser diameter than the first mentioned roll, at least that part of the main portion or" the cap between said line of bend and the rim being flexible.

2. In a protective device, the combination of a pair of caps, each cap comprising a main portion, a rim secured to the main portion, a reinforcement at the point of connection between the main portion and the rim, a re-inforcement at the outer edge of said rim, and means for securing said caps in position on a roll of paper.

3. I11 a protective device, the combination of a main portion provided with a rim; a re-inforcement at the point of connection between the main portion and the rim, and-a reinforcement atthe outer edge of said rim, the whole being formed of flexible material.

l. In a protective device, the combination. of a main portion provided with a rim; a reinforcement at the point of connection be tween the main portion and the rim, a reinforcement at the outer edge of said rim, and a reinforcement intermediate the centre of the main portion and the rim, the whole being formed of flexible material.

5. In a protective device, the combination of a main portion provided with a rim; a reinforcement at the point of connection between the main portion and the rim, and a reinforcement at the outer edge of said rim,

the Whole being formed of flexible material,

inforcement at the point of connection between the main portion and the rim; a reinforcement at the outer edge of said rim, the whole being formed of flexible material, each of said reinforcements being provided with a series of eyelets; and a reinforcement intermediate the centre of the main portion and the rim.

8. In a protective device, the combination 01 a pair of caps adapted to be fitted one on each end of a roll of paper, each cap comprising a main portion provided with a fiexible rim; and lacing connecting said rims to retain the caps in position on the roll, each of said caps also being adapted to be bent on a circle to fit the end of a roll of lesser diameter than the first mentioned roll, at least that part of the main portion of the cap between said line of bend and the rim being flexible, said main portions of the caps being provided with a flexible reinforcement at the said line of bend.
