HENRY A. PETER, OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, ASSIGNOB. T0 PIONEER SS- 'FENDER COMPANY, A CORPORATION OF PENNSYLVANIA.

Application filed July 22,

The invention relates to belt boxes. The object is to pro-vide improved means for securing the belt and the buckle in Idesired relative positions in a suitable box or container both for transportation and display. The invention is especially adapted for leather belts for mens wear, having buckles attached thereto.y

It has been found that such belts should be packed for transportation and display in a.

merely by way of example a suitable em' bodiment of the invention; v y

Fig. 1 is a view in perspective of the container without the belt, with the cover removed.

Fig. 2 is a similar view with the belt in position.

Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section,of same, with the cover in position.

Similar numerals refer to similar parts throughout the several views.

The container proper' comprises the box or element 6 having an outwardly extending flange 7 at the bottom. 4This container has substantial depth and is provided with a wall or partition 8 parallel with the top margin 9 -of the container 'l' and sufficiently spaced below said top margin to accommodate the end portion of the belt with the buckle and loops, or the greater part thereof, between said partition and said top margin. rlhis partition 8 is provided toward one end thereof, with a recess 10, preferably rectangular. This recess is slightlyV less in width than the width of the partition and slightly less in length than one-half the length of said partition. There is thus provided a margin between the recess and the side walls of the container. This recess 10 is proportioned and dimensioned to permit the passage therethrough of the major part of the belt 11 when formed into a coil. rlhat is to say the coiled part 12 of the beltpasses through the recess 10 into the space in the container below the partition Y BELT Box.

S, while that part or-endrofthe belt which carries the loops 13 and the buckle 14 extends over and rests upon the partition 8 toward the opposite end of the container from that of the recess. Suitable meansmay be provided to retain the buckle in fixed position upon the partition. VFor example I have shown a flexible metal pinl or strip 15, projecting upwards from the partition from a point beneath the tongue 1.6 of the buckle 14. The extreme end of 'this metal strip, when the buckle has been brought into final position, is bent over the tongue in such position. n

It will thus be seen' that by the means describe-d, the major portion of the belt whenv packed in the container' 6,*is inthe form of a symmetrical coil and 1s so maintained while 16 to secure the bucklel a substantial extension of the belt end carrying the buckle 14 and the loops 13 are in attractive display.

` ln order that the belt and loops may project slightly above. thetopmargins of the container I have found it preferable to provide a telescopic cover 17 of such extension that, when in closing position over the container, the top wall L8 of the cover is considerably above the top margins of the container.

The ilange 7 at the bottom of the container is adapted to engage the lower margins of the cover, t-o limit its downward movement and also to facilitate the separation of the cover lfrom the container.

formation, with its buckle attached, in fixed position for transportation and display, com prising' a container of substantial depth corL responding approximately to the diameter of the coil when the belt is in coiled formation,- and means forming a supporting surface within the container positioned above a substantial portion ofthe coil and suliiciently below the top margins of the container to provide a/spacefor the end portion of the belt with the loop `and buckle.
