(01. 229-51) 1 This invention relates to packages of the kind comprising a carton, group of cigarettes or the like enclosed within a wrapper of paper, transparent cellulose material or the like which wrapper has folded and sealed flaps. The objector the present invention is to provide means by which the wrapper of such package may be removed easily.
According to the present invention a package of the above kind is provided with a strip or ribbon extending from side to side of the wrapper, secured thereto along its length and terminating at one end near the margin of an outer sealed flap of the wrapper. The invention is particularly applicable to packages ofthe kind wherein the wrapper is folded into U-shape about one end and two sides of the contents of the pack age, side flaps are folded in and sealed and finally end flaps are folded in and sealed and the strip or ribbon extends, in such a package, from the outer end flap around the package to the inner end flap.
The wrapper may be removed from a package in accordance with this invention by gripping the end of the strip or ribbon at the said outer sealed flap and pulling it so that it rips the wrapper and renders the wrapper easy to remove. To facilitate the tearing of the wrapper, the said outer sealed flap may be slit at each side of the strip or ribbon. For this purpose also the strip or ribbon may be secured to the inner surface of the wrapper.
One embodiment in accordance with this invention will now be described, by way of example only, with reference to the accompanying drawing, in which:
Figure 1 shows a package in accordance with this invention, v
Figure 2 shows the package-during the process of opening it, and
Figure 3 is a section on the line III-III of Figure l.
The package comprises a carton l0 (Figure 3) of the shell and slide type but the precise nature of the contents of the package is immaterial. The carton I0 is enclosed in a wrapper ll which may be of paper, cellulose or other suitable ma-. terial. The wrapper II is folded about the carton III, in the known manner, by first foldingit about the rear end and top and bottom sides (as seen in Figures 1 and '2) and then folding v in side flaps on the two-vertical sides of the carton. The side flapsare sealed with adhesive.
The wrapper then forms a pouch about the carton and is closed by folding in side tucks i2 and an inner end flap l8 and an outer end flap H. The flaps i3 and I4 are sealed by adhesive but the extrememargin 15 of the outer flap I4 is.
not sealed down and preferably extends as shown beyond the edge of the end of the package -so that it can be more readily grasped by the fingers of a person opening the package.
A strip or ribbon I6 is secured by a suitable adhesive to the inside of the wrapper and extends from the margin of the outer flap it across the front end face, top face, the rear end face and the bottom face of the package to the margin of the inner end flap II. This strip or ribbon may be formed of paper, thin cardboard, woven fabric, cellulose material orthe like. The outer end flap I4 is the striplfi. I To remove the wrapper, the outer end l8 of the strip I6 together with the portion of the outer flap M adjacent thereto is gripped by the person opening the package. pulls on the strip ripping the wrapper II as shown in Figure 2. The strip l6 together with a portion of the wrapper I l to which it is secured can be completelyripped from the package leaving the wrapper in the form of twohalves which can be' readily removed sideways from the package. The strip 16 re-enforces the wrapper and,
ensures that a complete circumferential strip of the wrapper is removed and that the two tear lines do not converge to a point before they have completely encircled the package.
