A. J. REDEMSKI FIBER BOARD PACKAGE Filed Aug. 4, 1926 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 handled in shipment and by the user,

Patented Nov. 1, 1927.





Application filed August 4, 1926. Serial No. 126,982.

This invention relates to improvements in fiber board packages and more particularly to packages for liquid products, such as are ordinarily sealed in cans.

The object of the invention is to provide a package which can be more readily Y the provision of hand-holes in the sides and near one `end thereof. Such a package is especially designed for relatively heavy tand cumbersome products, such as large cans of oil, chemicals, Syrups and the like.

For convenience of disclosure, I have shown a package for the ordinary 5-gallon can or drum of oil, this being a good example of a package which is exceedingly diflicult to handle when enclosed in the usual case without handles.

In the accompanying drawings,

Figure lis a perspective view of a sealed package embodying the invention.

Figure 2 is a perspective view of the fiber container open andthe contents removed.

Figure 3 is a perspective View showing the outer container open and the insert removed. Y Figure 4 is a view in vertical section through the package as taken on line 4-4 of VFigure 1.

Figure 5 is a perspective view in elel vation ofthe insert for the upper part o the outer container.

Figure 6 is a view in 'elevation of the blank from which the insert shown in Figure 5 is formed.

Figure 7 is a perspective -view of a modified form of insert.

Figure Sis a view in elevation of the blank from which the insert shown in Figure 7 is made. l

Figure 9 is a view in vertical section through the `package showing the insert of' i with the flaps of each pair abutting at their forward edges.v The end flaps are preferably sealed .by strips 2 of adhesive paper tape, as shown in Figure 1 Fitting within the outer container vis a can or tin container, such asy ordinarily used for lubricatingV oils and having a spout .3a and a ring handle 3" on its top wall.

The height of the outer container is somewhat greater than that of the inner container, thus providing a space of from three to four inches between the top of the can and the top wall of the outer container.

lVithin this space is placed an insert 4, the same being a hollow box-like member (Figure 5) adapted to it snugly within this open space. The insert is preferably made from the same material and ills the space above the top of the inner container 3. In its blank form (Figure 6) the insert consists ofv rectangular sections with dividing score lines so that when the blank is folded and stapled, as at 4, it forms a rigid box with top, bottom and side walls. In two of the opposing side walls of the insert are formed longitudinal slots or handholes 4b, 4", and at one corner of what would be the bottom wall, is a circular hole 4. As constructed from the blank shown in Figure 6, one pair ofside walls would be other side walls of 'but a single thickness.

f The hand-holes 4b are preferably cut in the walls of single thickness.

In the corresponding positions opposite side walls of the outer container 1 and near the top thereof, are hand-holes 5-5. Thus when the insert is fitted-into the top space of the container, it is so done that the pairs of hand-holes register with each other, thus forming single hand-holes on opposite sides of the package, as shown in Figures 1 and 4. The circular opening 4 at the corner of the bottom wall of the insert, receives the spout 3a of the inner container 3.

In this manner the package is provided with the equivalent of handles, so that it can be conveniently handled in shipment or otherwise prior to the removal of the inner container.

Figures 7 and 8 disclose a modified c0n struction fora fiber-board insert, in which considerably less material is used, and although not affording as rigid a construction is calculated to be quite as satisfactory for ordinary uses. This insert 6 consists of a single central panel 6*aL having marginal flaps 6b which are folded at right angles to form the side walls. In opposite side walls are formed the hand-holes 6c as before, and at one corner of the center section is the saine circular opening 6d. It is preferable that this insert 6 be placed in the top of the container with the central section downward, as shown in Figure 9, with the edges of the side walls abutting against the top end wall of the outer container, thus avoiding the possibility of the flaps being forced between the sides of the inner and outer containers, which might occur if the posivtion of the insert were reversed.

ln Figures l() and 11 is shown a further modification for the insert, which consists merely of an open rectangular frame 7 of wood pieces vnailed together at their ends, and a pair of recesses 7a cut or hollowed out of the pieces ony opposite sides of the frame, land this frame is fitted in place as in the case of the other inserts, with the recesses 7a registering with the hand-holes vin the outer container', as shown in Figure 1l. The recesses could be form slotted hand-holes, fiber board inserts, of the wood is a less slotting, reason.

Having set forth the construction and advantagesv of a container for packaging goods of the particular variety herein disclosed, I claim as my invention 1. A package for canned products comprising a metal container, a carton adapted to receive said container with a substantial space between the top of said container and cut through to as in the case of the although the recessing expensive Iprocess than and hence is preferable fon that the top of said carton, and an insert tting in said space and having walls extending transversely thereof between said container and the opposite wall of said carton, said insert having a hand hole in one ofits -walls and adapted to register with a complementary hand hole in said carton.

2. A prising a metal container, to receive said container dimension in one direction to provide a substantial space between one side of said con-l tainer and thecorresponding wall of said carton, and an insert adapted to fit snugly in said space and comprising walls engaging fiatwiseagainst the Wall of said carton surrounding said space, said insert and carton having registering hand holes formed in the walls thereof and opening into said space.

3. A package for canned products comprising a contents container, ed to enclose said container and having flaps at one end, said carton being of increased dimension in one direction to provide a space a carton. adapted and of increased of substantial height between the top of'.

said container and the flap closed end of said container, and an insert adapted to fit. within said space and comprising walls extending transversely thereof and bearing edgewise against the topof said container, there being formed hand holes in said walls of the insert adapted to register with hand holes in walls of said carton and opening into said space.
