PACKAGE OF SAFETY PINS, ETC.
Application filed April 11, 1924. Serial No. 705,823.
This invention relates especially to packages of safety pins or similar articles, such as rings, etc., in which the closed or locked safety pins or other articles are inserted intotransverse or other slots or aperturesin cards, preferably when the card is trans verselyarched up. Then a breakablecardboard or other retainer strip may he slipped along the back of the card and may preferably have bottom or edge projections so as to interlock with the inserted pins and securely and positively retain them in position until they are removed for use and thereupon tear or break the retainer strip which is preferably adhesively secured -to the card back at a number ofplaces or posiing projections,
tongues and apertures formed in the cooperating portions of the strip and card or pins. These safety pin packages which are'quite desirable for commercial purposes may be formedin any suitable way as by hand or machine operations along. the lines of the applications above referred to, for instance.
In the accompanying drawing showing in a somewhat diagrammatic way illustratlve embodlments of this invention:
safety pin card orpackage,
-Fig. 2 is a rear view of another. illustr'ative package.
Fig. 3 is a corresponding transversesecfl tion taken substantially along the line 33 of Fig. 2.
- Fig. L is a. rear view of another illustrative package, and Y Fig. 5 is a corresponding partial section thereof taken along the line 55 of Fig. 4.
The safety pins forming these card packages may remain in their closed or locked condition in which they are regularly tumbled and polished and for this .purpose the.
pin card 14 may be formed with one or more series of relatively short pinslots such as 16 which may be transversely arranged when a single row of pins is to be arranged on the card. The pins preferably have their point members inserted through these slots which can be readily done by hand or other Wise, especially if the pin card is their trans versely arched up by any suitable means-,. and when all of these safety pins,-rings or other generally similararticles have been inserted into their slots, at cardboard or other retainer strip or member 15 isinserted between the card back and the rearwardly projecting portions of the articles" extending through the slots so as to hold them in position during shipment, for instance, the retainer strip being preferably adhesively secured to the card back either.
throughout their operating faces or at sep- 'corrugations or looking projections such as. .'t1vely retained in position as by,1nterlock- 35, extending between adjacent pins to be thereby secured in position, and these edge projections may be advantageously gummed as by any suitable gumming devices which may apply the longitudinally separated,
edge. gummed portions '36 on the two lateral edges of the corrugated retainer strip. These gummed edge projections are of course strongly forced into engagement with the card back, as soon as the card is released from its arched up article insert- In some cases it is advantageous instead .of, or preferably in connection with adhesive methods of securing-the tongue and card together, to employ interlocking proj ections or tongues and apertures formed in the cooperating. portions of the retainer strip and card. As shown in Fig.2, any desired number of apertures 38, may be formed in these parts as bysevering them along-the crossed or perpendicular dotted lines 37 by means of one or more sharp edged piercing members, and then forcing back against the adjacent rear fac'eof the retainer strip, for instance, the interlocking tongues projectit iis t flw'bieh arethiia board so as to force the singletongues 39 through this aperture after which they may be advantageouslyforced or crushed down against the back of'the retainer strip, for example, to prevent accidental longitudinal displacement; of the retainer strip.
Another illustrative arrangement is shown inFigs; 4 and '5 where the retainer strip c is shown as provided with bottom corrugationssuch as 26 at least on its lateral edge portions so as to have suitable interlocking or holding engagement with the portions of the safety pins or other'artioles pro ecting rearwardly through the slots 16 in the card 14. Such holding corrugations orprojections may, of course, be stampedup on the retainer strips by any suitable embossing dies which may readily form sufficiently high projectionsvto very materially minimize accidental vor undesirable longitudinal movement of the retainer strip under service conditions, even where it is not adhesive- Vly securedto the card or otherwise held as by interlockingtongues and apertures in these parts. It is sometimes desirable, however, to provide continuous or separated portlons such as 37 of gum or;other adhevsive on the retainer or card in any suitable posltionsso as to adhesively hold these parts together in a still more definite and secure Way;
This invention has been described in connection with a number of illustrative embodiments, forms, proportions, parts, arrangements, materials and methods of preparation and use, to the details, of which disclosure the invention is not of course to be 7 limited, jsince what is claimed as new and what is desired to be secured by Letters Patent is set forth inthe appended claims.
1. As a new article of manufacture, a package of safety pins comprising a card formed with a series of spaced and aligned pin-slotsshorter than the safety pins tobe installed in the card, aligned safety pins installed in the respective slots of the said card, so that a portion of each pin projectsfrom the back of the card, and a break-I able, pin-retainer strip inserted between the back of the card and those portions ofthe aligned pins projecting therethrough, the
respective edges of the said pin-retainer strip beingformed with notches spaced conformably to the spacing of the slots in the card for the production of projections upon the edges of the strip for restraining the longitudinal displacement thereof with reference to the card and pins.
2. As a new article of manufacture, a
acka 'e of safet ins com arisin a card is, p 9 a in to prevent the endwise displacement of the strip with respect to the card and hence the accidental escape'of any of the pins. v
3. As a new article-of manufacture, a package of safety pins, comprising'a card formed with a series of spaced 'pin -slots shorter than the pins to be installed, safety pins so installed in the said slots that a portion of each pin projects from the backof the card, and a breakable pinQretainer strip inserted betvveenthe back of the card and 7 those portions of the pins projecting therethrough, the said strip having integral conformations spaced to correspond to thespacing of the slots and co-acting with the pins to prevent its endwise displacement with respect to the card and the accidental pe of a y of e pi s: 1 i- 4. As a new article of manufacture, a p'ackage of safety pins, comprising a card formedv with a series of spaced pin-slots I shorter than the safety-pins to be installed, pins so installed in the said slots that a por tion of each pin projects from the back of the card, and a breakable pin-retainer strip inserted'between the back of the card and 7 those portions of the pins projecting therethrough, one edge of the said strip being formed with notches spaced conformably to the spacing of the slots for the production of projections entering between the installed pins, whereby the two paper elements of-"t'he package are held against longitudinal slippage with the pins individually confined between them, so that any one pin maybe removed without releasingany other pin.
5, As a new article of manufacture, a package of safety pins, comprising a card formed with a series of spaced pin-slots shorter than the safety pins to be installed, safety pins installed in the said slots so that a portion of each pin projects from the back of the card, and a breakable pin-retainer strip inserted'between the back of thecard and-thoseportions of the pins projecting therethrough, one of the two paper elements of the package being provided with integral projections spaced apart conformably with the spacing of the slots and the separation. spaced relation to the slots and pins, Whereof the pins for preventing the relative longiby the two paper elements of the package are tudinal slippage of the card and strip, interheld against longitudinal slippage With the 10 locking members formed integral With the pins individually confined between them, so I card and strip for-positively holding them that any one pin may be removed Without against longitudinal slippage, and an adreleasing any other pin.
