VENDING CARTON OB PACKAGE. I
Specification of Letters Patent.
Application'flled. January .17, 1-903. Serial-No. 189,419.
,To-all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, BENJAMIN O. TILLING- tons or packages designed for the purpose EAST, a citizen of the United States, residing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, have invented an Improved Vending Carton or Package, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to that class of carof holding a series of smaller packages, boxes, or vendible units of any character, in such a manner that they may be removed one at a time from the bottom of such inor packages in outside view; Figs. 3 ahd4,
are perspective views illustrating details of my lnvention, and Fig. 5, is a sectional view illustrating a further detailof my invention. The inclosing package or carton I, which is preferably made of pasteboard is arranged to carry a series of smaller boxes, packages or other vendible units 2, of uniform tl1ick-, ness which are piled one upon the other and which have a broad area suflicient to fill the space of the inclosing package. This package is provlded at its lower end with an opening 3 having finger notches 4 at the ends of the same, which notches are cut into the sides of the inclosing package.
The opening 3 is preferably the height of 4 one of the smaller boxes, packages or other inclosed units, and said boxes may be removed through said openlng by grasping the same by the thumb and finger through the said notches 4. To assist removal of the boxes, packages or other units, particularly if they are of other than square or rectangular shape, I provide an aperture 6 at the rear of the carton for theinsertionof the forefinger to push out the box, package or other article it is desired to remove.
' one of the inclosed boxes, either during ship-' mentor handling of the inclosing package This aperture '6 is shown in Figs. 1 and 2.
To prevent-accidental dislodgrnent of any inthe store, Iprovide the flap, piece or'apron 5'atthe frontwof the aperture} of the in band is then slipped around this pile.
ages, and the tension of this strap or band is suflicient to hold the pile down and insure the dropping of the same as soon as the lowermost box has been removed. In packing these smaller' boxes, packages, or other vendi-' ble units, in the inclosing case or package, this inclosing package is made up with the top flap or cover 7, as shown in Fig. 1,
slipped in place. The packages are then.
piled up until a sufiicient number has been laid to fill the inclosing case and the rubbIer n this position they are placed in the inclosing package and the bottom section 11 of the package is slipped under the band or strap as shown in Fig. 3; a small quantity of glue or other material is placed around the band and over this piece 11, and the side half sections or fia s 12 are pasted down, this end of the package forming the shape shown in Fig. 4. Under normal conditions,
this rubber band or strap will be sufiicient to pull down the pile of boxes and does not require any special positioning means. In Fig. 5, however, I have shown a follower piece 15 which may have a continuous groove 16 across the top, or simply short grooves at. the edge to position the rubber band or strap and insure that the tension of the same is directed at the center of the smaller boxes, packages or other vendible units.
In some instances, a paper seal may b placed across the opening 3.to insure against unlawful removal and change of the goods contained. within the'inclosipgbox or dase, and at the same time to prevent dislodg- -ment of any ofthe smaller boxes, packages orother vendible units during shipment.
- Although I have shown an inclosing carton or'casmg of square or rectangular shape,
,it will be understood that'I may employ such box or casing of any desired shape, and
that in some'instances I may pack in it he' square boxes, smaller packages of different shapes and sizes, having, however, uniform height.
Having thus described my invention, I
claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
ranged to be stretched over and band together vendible units contained within said carton and opening. i.
A multiple unit receptacleconsisting of an inclosing carton adapted to contain a plurality of vendible units and having at one side of an end thereof an exit opening through which said units are laterally removable, the wall of the carton opposite its exit opening being perforated for the insertion of a finger to assist in the removal of the lowermost unit, the ends of said carton being closed by a plurality of flaps, and elastic means secured to the flaps at one end press the same toward said exit of the carton and arranged to be stretched over and band together vendible units con tained within said carton and press them toward said exit opening.
v 3. A multiple unit receptacle consisting of an inclosing carton having at one side of an end thereof an exit opening, a flap carried by the wall in which said opening is formed partially covering the same, said carton adapted to contain a plurality of vendible units, the ends of said carton being closed by a plurality of flaps, and elastic means se- (Jilted to the flaps at one end of the carton B. o.
