JOSEPH H. GARTSIDE, 0F PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA.

BOX-FASTENER.

rcssaii.

To @ZZ whom t may concern Be it known that I, JOSEPH H. GAR'rsIDE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Philadelphia, in the county of Philadelphia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented new and useful Improvements in BoxFas teners, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to new and useful improvements in box fasteners, and has for its object to provide an exceedingly simple and effective device of this character which is especially adapted for use with a draw box, so that the box sheath may be securely locked upon the box tray, yet permit said box tray to be readily removed for postal inspection.

A further object of the invention is to provide a box fastener which will be inexpensive in the cost of manufacture, exceedingly light in weight, although very durable.

A still further object of the invention is to provide a box fastener which is not a part of the box or permanently attached thereto, but one which may be readily placed in position between the tray and sheath, so that.

the two may be easily and quickly fastened together to prevent the draw from becoming accidentally displaced from either end of the sheath during transportation.

In the ordinary draw box after the tray is within its sheath, three sides of the box are of double thickness because of the relation of the side walls of the trav and the side walls of the sheath, but the fourth side of the. box is only of single thickness because of the open side or top of the tray, but by the use of my improved box fastener which may be placed upon the open side or top of the tray, the four sides of the box may be made double thickness, thus better protecting the contents of the box and overcome the possibility of the box collapsing because of other articles being placed thereon during transit in the mails.

1With these ends in view, this invention consists in the details of construction and combination of elements hereinafter set forth and then specifically designated by the claim.

In order that those skilled in the art to which this invention appertains may understand how to make and use the same, I will describe its construction in detail, referring by numeral to the accompanying drawing Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed August 1, 1913.

serial no. 782,433.

forming a part of this specification, in which- Figure l, is a perspective view of a draw box showing my improved box fastener applied thereto. Fig. 2, is a similar view of the tray carrying my box fastener ready to be inserted in the sheath; and Fig. 3, is a section at the line 3-3 of Fig. Q.

In carrying out my invention as here embodied, 2 represents the sheath of a draw box open at both ends as at 3, and in which is fitted to slide the tray 4 open at one side or the top 5.

6 denotes my improved box fastener formed from a single strip of relatively inexpensive thin light metal, each end of which is slit longitudinally for a relatively short distance as at 7, thereby forming four tongues 8, 9, l0, 11, which are adapted to be folded over against the ends of the tray and one of the side walls of the sheath as plainly shown in Fig. 1. There is no particular manner in which these tongues must be bent over, and although I have shown the diagonally oppositie tongues being bent over in the same direction, it will be readily understood that the directly opposite tongues may be bent over on the same number of boxes, and although the fastener is here shown as lying upon the top or open side of the tray for strengthening the box by making all sides double thickness. It is not necessary that the box fastener be placed in the position shown, as the same results will be accomplished if the fastener is placed on any one of the four sides.

In practice the contents of the box are placed in the tray Ll, after which the box fastener G is laid thereon and one of the tongues at each end. As 9 and l0 are bent down against the ends of the tray after the said tray and the box fastener are placed within the sheath 2, and when the proper position is obtained, the remaining tongues as 8 and l1 are bent over upon the sheath, thus securely locking the tray within its sheath and preventing the former from being accidentally displaced during transportation. Should the postmaster desire to examine the contents of the box, it is only necessary tov bend back one of the tongues 9 or 10, at which time the tray may be moved from its sheath and examined without displacing the box fastener, and after the examination has been completed, the tray may be readily inserted and the tongues 9 or 10 returned to strip of metal adapted to lie between the tray and sheath with the tongues projecting, 15 one of said tongues at each end adapted tol be bent against each end of the tray, and the other tongue at each end adapted to be benty over one side of the sheath.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto af- 20 ixed my signature in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
