Rowell 00., of New York Application December 29, 1934, Serial No.
' The invention relates to containers and more specifically to containers or boxes in which face The devices of the prior art are unsatisfactory by reason of the fact that during transit the pro tecting drum housed within the base portion of ing an unsightly appearance when the closure cap or cover is removed.
The invention Batavia, N. Y., assignor to E. N. Inc., Batavia, N. Y
., a corporation section through the'container when assembled;
upper peripheral edge portions of the drum.
In accordance with-usual practice, a strip of paper I 6 is applied in any well-known manner to the side of the drum. In accordance with my invention, however, before such strip is so applied, a thread or cord I1 is applied to the strip l6 held in place thereon by means of the adhesive with which one side of such covering strip is provided prior to its application to the side of the urn.
As will be noted from Figs. 6 and 'I, when the strip l6 has been applied to the drum M, the thread or cord 11 forms a bead or projecting ridge the drum, the portion of the covering strip l6 overlying the cord being projected outwardly from the side surface of the drum. The bead or projection thus formed is fective to form a friction or pressure interlock between the drum l4 and the base portion ID of the container so as to prevent the upward movement of said drum within said base portion.
In the particular embodiment illustrated in Fig. '7, is the In of the container is providedwith a covering strip l8 glued thereto, the
' to surround the upper edge of the base portion and so as to have I9 depend from such upper edge along the inner surface of the base portion. In this particular embodiment of my invention, the drum H! with the thread l1 applied thereto is pushed all the way down into the base portion of the container so that the cord or thread on the drum, and therefore the bead or projection formed thereon by such cord, will beneath the overlapped and depending edge IQ of the paper strip at the upper inside portion of the container base, thereby forming an interlocking connection between such bead and depending edge of the cover strip.
As illustrated in the embodiment shown in Fig. 8, if there is no overlapping edge of the paper strip 18 depending into the upper inside edge of the container projection formed by the thread applied to the drum in accordance with my invention would still result in a pressure fit between the drum and the inner surface of the container base sufficient to retain the cord edged drum properly in place within said base and to prevent such drum from moving upwardly therein.
In carrying out my invention, it is not necessary to apply any glue or other adhesive to the thread or cord l1 directly, the cord being placed in correct position upon the drum covering strip by the use of suitable gauges so that the cord becomes a part of the covering strip on the glued face thereof. This operation of applying the thread to the paper strip is performed at a time immediately preceding the application of such paper strip to the drum so that the adhesive applied to the face of the strip and whereby the cord is retained in position upon said strip is still sufficiently liquid to cause firm adhesion of the paper strip around the drum when such strip is applied to such drum. Thus the thread becomes practically a part of the paper strip before the two together are applied as a unit, to the outside of the drum.
1. In a container for powdered material, the combination of a base portion and a drum member contained at therein and having a sealed upper surface, said drum having a cord applied to its outer peripheral surface forming a protuberance upon said drum for frictionally restraining the drum from movement upwardly within the container base. I
2. A container for powdered material comprising a base portion, a cover surmounting said base portion, and a protecting drum having a sealed upper surface, said drum having a cord applied to the outer peripheral surface thereof, forming a protuberance upon said drum for frictionally restraining the drum from movement upwardly within the container base.
3. The combination claimed in claim 1, in which the drum is provided with a facing strip, the cord being applied to the side of said facing strip which is to be applied to the drum so that when the facing strip with the cord applied thereto is applied as a unit to the outside of the drum, the protuberance formed by said cord and projecting portion of the strip will retain the drum in position within the container base.
4. The combination claimed in claim 1, in which the base portion vided with a facing strip overlapping the edge of the upper portion of the container base and depending from said edge at the upper inside portion of the container base, the cord on the drum being positioned beneath said overlapped depending portion of the facing strip, thereby forming an interlocking connection between the drum and container base.
5. A container for powdered material comprising a body portion, a cover surmounting said body portion. and a drum member contained at least partially within said body portion and having a cord applied to the outer peripheral surface thereof for frictionally retaining said drum member within said body portion.
6. A container comprising drum member, a facing strip on the outer surface of said drum member, and a cord applied member between its outer surface outer member, an inner member contained at least partially within said outer member, a on said inner member and a cord applied to the side of said facing strip contiguous the outer surface of said inner member so that the protuberance formed by said cord and projecting portion of the facing strip is effective to retain the inner member in position within said outer member.
8. The container claimed in claim 5 in which the body portion is provided with a facing strip overlapping the edge of said body portion and depending from said edge at the upper inside portion of the container body, the cord on the drum member being positioned beneath said overlapped depending portion of the facing strip, thereby forming an interlocking connection between the drum member and the body portion of the container.
9. A container comprising an outer member and an inner member movable telescopically with respect to each other so as to be nested when associated, and a cord applied to the outer peripheral surface of said inner member, the inner being spaced from said outer member of said cord, said cord being effective to restrain relative telescopically associated.
10. In combination, an outer member and an inner member adapted to be telescopically associated to form a container for powdered material, and a cord applied to the outer peripheral surface of said inner member, the two members being separated from each other by a space less than the thickness of said cord, said inner member being restrained from movement within said outer member by said cord.
