7 Claims.

This invention relates to a shipping arrangement of combination display and container structures peculiarly adapted for the display cf replacement shoe soles, and accessories necessary for the mounting thereof, although the invention is not limited to this particular form of merchandise.

One chief object of the invention is to package a plurality of said combination displayr and container structures so that the formation necessary for subsequent display purposes will be mainm tained in shipment and the resulting package will be of minimum volume.

Another chief object of the invention is to provide a combination display and container' arrangement which will not only .contain certain articles such as accessories but will retain in display relationship other articles of merchandise which require the use of .such accessories.

A further chief object of .the invention is to The chief feature of the invention resides in the formation of ,the shipping arrangement including the combination display and container arrangements whereby the aforesaid objects are accomplished.

Another feature of the invention consists in the displayed container in closed positioning of the merchandise to be so that the same cooperates with the formation for retention of the latter container formation.

Other objects and features infill be more fully hereinafter.

The full nature of the invention will be understood from the accompanying drawings, the following description and claims:

In the drawings,

Fig. l is a longitudinal sectional View through the shipping arrangement form of the invention, two broadly similar but specifically combination display and container arrangements being included therein.

Fig. 2 is a perspective View of one. oi the con bination display and container' arrangements shown in Fig. 1 and the form requiring 'the least stock.

Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional View through the combination base and container forma ion shown in Fig. and is taken on line fiereof and in the direction of the arrows.

set forth Fig. 4 is a perspective View of the other Lcombination .display and container .arrangement shown in Fig. 1 and the form requiring more stock since it is of hinge panel :type as .distinguished from the single panel type illustrated in Fig. 2.

Fig. 5 ^is a developed .plan View .of the blank from which the .combination display and container arrangements shown in Fig. 4 is erected.

`ln Figs. 2 .and .3 .of the drawings, 20 indi- Cates ine `back panelsheei, u21| .a .forward .extension hingeuly connected .thereto by crease 2.3 a front `upwardly.directed,extension hlngedly connectedat Zllto the 'base portion 2 1. :Hingediy connected to .front portion as by `crease 26 is the ytop 25 directed rearwardly. From the same, .as .at 2, :rises .the =front .panel sheet .28. Adhesive strips .29 `and :secure thepanel .sheets together. Portions l`25,'23 and l2l with ithe lower end of portion 2U form a tubulantype container.

A pair v.of replacement rubber-like yhalf soles D are partially overlappedvand stitched -to the display panel by the wire member 3l which `exl tne two bases are at opposite` tends through both sheets and 28 and the free ends lie behind member 2U.

The top portion 2'5 is slotted at 32 adjacent crease and hinge 21 so that soles D may extend downwardly into the tubular container formation. The top is also centrally cut away as at 33 to expose the tube of rubber cement T in the container formation. The front portion 23 is apertured as at 34 to expose the scratcher S.

Slidably mounted in the tubular formation is the sleeve arrangement having front and rear sides 35 and ends 36. The front side 35 is apertured at 31 to register with theA aperture 34. As shown in Figs. 2 and 3, the merchandise D extends through slot 32 and into the tubular container and lies within the sleeve arrangement. Hence, sliding movement of the sleeve is limited by said merchandise and, accordingly, the tube and scratcher cannot accidentally become lost in transit. In other words, the sleeve must be destroyed to release the tube and scratcher or the soles D must be elevated from the slot 32, to effect such release.

Reference will now be had to Figs. 4 and 5. In said gures 40 indicates the main back panel and 4| and 43 two wing panels hingedly connected by creases 42 and 44, respectively, to the side edges of the main body portion 40. The lower edges 45 and 41 of these panels coincide with projections of the crease hinge 46 at the base of the body portion.

Portion 48 is an extension of portion 4|! and is connected thereto as at 46. Portion 49 is an extension of portion 48 and is hingedly connected thereto as at 50. Portion 5| is an extension of portion 49 and is hingedly connectedA thereto as at 52. Portion 53 is an extension of portion 5| and is hingedly connected thereto as at 54.

Flaps 55 extend from opposite sides of portion 5| and aps '56 extend from opposite sides of portion 48, same being hingedly connected thereto as at 51 and 58 respectively.

Portion 48 is the base while portion 49 is the front and portion 5| is the top of the combinaton base and container formation. Portion 53 is the free tongue and a closure for the container. The front is apertured as at 59 to expose the container c-ontents, to-Wit: tube T and scratcher S, see Fig. 4.

Portions 48, 49,'5I and 53 are thus sequentially connected, and when arranged as shown in Fig. 4, the flaps 55 and 56 are turned inwardly and overlap to form the ends of the tubular container.

Integral with each side edge of the body portion 40 near the bottom and hingedly connected thereto as at 60 are the end closure flaps 6| with tabs or tips 62. These parts are taken from the side panel stock as shownin Fig. 5.

When the sequentially connected portions are arranged inV tubular container formation, and with the tube and scratcher therein. The naps 55 and 56 are turned inwardly towards each other, and the flaps 6| with tabs 62 then can be associated therewith to close the container.

It will be noted that side wing 4| is provided with a pair of spaced slots 1| and side wing 43 is provided with similar slots 13. If desired, either panel may include a slit 12 for reception of a price tag addition or the like.

It will be noted that the stock of the wings between each pair of slots forms a band orstrip and the solesl G may be interposed between the wings and resulting bands and be. retagedagd.

supported thereby without stitching or the like, all as shown in Fig. 4.

Also, as shown in Fig. 4, the soles G extend downwardly below the plane of the top 5|. The forward sole has frictional engagement with closure portion 53 and serves to retain same in closed position.

While the invention has been illustrated and described in great detail in the foregoing descrip- 3 tion, the same is to be considered as illustrative and not restrictive in character.

The several modifications described herein, as well as others which will readily suggest themselves to persons skilled in this art, are all considered to be within the broad scope of the invention, reference being had to the appended claims.
