For convenience in handling, shipping, or storing it may be rolled up as indicated in Fig. 6. In such case it is desirable to roll the strip on a core with a diameter of at. least 8 inches. The rolling upof the strip in this way not only retains the longitudinal medial crease and the tendency of the lateral portions on both sides of the crease to come together, but
-makes the strip very convenient ior handling since it can be unrolled as used and cut oil? into any lengthsdesired. V I The utility and convenience of my padding strip "are further-apparent with- -reference to Fig. -l0,

Itis also evident that my creased padding strip is'particularly. suitable for corners and easily While my padding strip is-especially designed for padding furniture for shipment,etc.-,' it is also otherarticles, since it forms a very eiilc ient and protective padding and requires a relatively smaller crate than is requiredwhen most of the other kinds of "padding are used for such articles.
.While it is not necessary'thatthe' liner 'sheetsfof j my padding strip be] crinkledffor crpedpaper,
it is preferablethat they should be since the creping causes airvto be entrapped and renders 'the individual sheets of paper,and consequently the entire padding strip, mor e cushiony.
Another advantage of my padding strip is that it has practically no fire hazard as compared with .paddlngs using excelsior or shredded newspaper. I
