ADHESIVE TAPE AND GAUZE DRESSING PACKAGE Filed 001;. 31, 1933 7/22/2752?! @927 CM! J A". M

Patented June 18, 1935 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE ADHESIVE TAPE AND GAUZE DRESSING PACKAGE of Massachusetts Application October 31, 1933, SerialNo. 696,058

6 Claims.

This invention relates to the packing of adhesive-coated articles, an example of which is the well-known adhesive tape and gauze dressing used for the protection of cuts or minor wounds.

An important object ofthe invention is the provision of a package of this character in which the articles may be arranged in very compact form and may be packed at a minimum cost for labor.

Another object of the invention is to provide a package of the type described which requires a very small amount of carrier material proportionately to the number of articles contained in the package.

A further object is the provision of a package of exceptional convenience and utility.

With these and other objects in view, which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts, and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that various changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed may be made within the scope of what is claimed, without departing from the spirit of the invention.

Referring to the drawing:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a package in which my invention is embodied, the closure being removed and one of the end walls of the spool being broken away for convenience in illustration;

Fig. 2 is an elevational and sectional view thereof;

Fig. 3 is a diagrammatic view of a carrier strip such as is employed in the embodiment of the invention shown in Figs.- 1 and 2, showing adhesive tape and gauze dressings as the articles carried thereby; and

Fig. 4 is a perspective view showing a somewhat different form of package embodying the invention.

The form of package shown in Figs. 1 and 2 comprises a spool ll having a core l2 and end walls l3 and ll of usual form. A closure I5 is provided, being, in the embodiment of the invention illustrated in the drawing, a ring or sleeve having inwardly-beaded edges l6 and i1 adapted to coact with outwardly-beaded or rounded edges on the spool heads l3 and II to hold the parts in firmly assembled relationship while permitting removal of the spool from the sleeve by exerting pressure on either of the spool heads.

In accordance with my invention, strips 23 of crinoline, or other suitable material, are placed over one end of the tape, this being done inexpensively .as a part' of the manufacture of the dressing, it being common'practice to form the dressings with two of such protective strips thereon, one on each end, said strips having free ends overlying the pad 2|. I omit one of the strips leaving one end of the tape unprotected, and this end is pressed onto the carrier strip l9 to cause it to removably adhere thereto. In this manner the dressings maybe placedvery close together since theprotected end of each tape may overlie the adhering end of the adjacent one, as clearly shown in the drawing. Furthermore, the free protected end of the tape may be grasped between the fingers and the dressing pulled off the carrier strip l9 easily and without getting the fingers sticky. The uncovered portion of the strip I9 may be cut or torn off from time to time so that it will not be necessary to wind it back onto the spool.

Preferably the free ends of the tapes extend toward the end of the carrier strip so that they will be presented in accessible position as the strip isunwound.

In the embodiment of the invention shown in Fig. 4 of the drawing, a plurality of carrier leaves.

24 are shown clipped'together at 20 between backs and 26, the former of which has a slot 21 therein and the latter of which is formed with a tongue 28 adapted to enter said slot to close the packis bent over along the dotted line 29. The tape dressings l8 are attached to the leaves 24 in the same manner as to the carrier strip l9 except that they are not arrangedin overlapping relationship. Obviously they may be removed in the same manner. This form of package is much like a folding match box and is very convenient particularly for. packaging small quantities of adhesive tape dressings or other adhesive coated articles.

The foregoing detailed description has been given for clearness of understanding only, and no unnecessary limitations should be understood therefrom, but the appended claims should be construed as broadly as permissible in view of the prior art.

I claim: v
