WEATHER STBI? FOR CONTAINERS.

Application filed October 27, 1924. Serial No. 745,988.

tion between a trunk and its lid, the weather strip being firmly held whereby it cannot become accidentally displaced and whereby it will be more or less protected from the elements when sealing a lid relative to a trunk. Contributing towards the success of the weather strip is a strong and durable trunk having a lid hinged relative thereto and provision is made to compensate for expansion and contraction of the material entering into the construction of the trunk.

My invention will be hereinafter described in detail and then claimed and reference will now be had to the drawings, whFerein f i re 1 is a perspective view one fonn b f automobile trunk;

Fig. 2 is a. longitudinal sectional view of a portion of the trunk with the lid in an open position;

Fig. 3 is an enlarged cross, sectional view of a' ortion of the trunk with the lid in the closed position;

Fig. 4 is a similar view showing the lid in an openposition;

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of a portion of the trunk showing the hinge and a protecting shield for the hinge;

' Fig. 6 is a perspective view of a portion of a detached weather strip;

Fig. 7 is a detail sectional view illustratini a slight modification of my invention;

ig. 8 1s.a longitudinal sectional view of a portion of the trunk with the lid open, illustrating another form of weather strip;

Fig. 9 is a cross sectional view of a portion of the trunk with the lid losed', and

Fig. 10 is a perspective view of a portion of the weather strip shown in Fi 8 and 9.

Reference will first be had to igs. 1 to 6 inclusiveillustrating an automobile trunk as a sample of a container having a lid. The trunk is preferably made of strong and durable metal finished to present a neat and attractive appearance and the trunk comangle sloping downwardly prises a rear wall 1, a front wall 2, end

walls 3-and a bottom wall 4. The lower edges of the walls 1, 2 and 3 are inturned to form upstanding flanges 5 which cooperate with the walls in providing channels to receive the depending flanges 6 of the bottom wall 4, which is thereby inset relative to the lower edges of the trunk walls. The flanges 5 and 6 may be secured together and to the walls 1, 2 and 3 by brazing, spot welding or any other form of connection which will insure a rigid and strong bottom construction for the trunk. To prevent the bottom edges of the trunk from injuring any surface on which it is placed and also to prevent the bottom edges of the trunk from being injured when the trunk is rou hly handled there are'end cleats -7 riveted or otherwise connected to the bottom wall 4, as at 8, said cleats being referably two in number with the cleats tted against the flanges 5 at the end walls 3 of the trunk.

The rear wall 1 is preferably of a greater height than the front wall 2 and the end walls 3 have the upper edges thereof at an from the rear wall 1 to the front wall 2, such contributing to easy access to the bottom interior portion of the trunk. The upper edges of the walls 2 and 3 terminate in lateral inturned flanges 9 and upstanding flanges 10 so as to form somewhat of a ledge at the upper edges of the three walls.

Riveted or otherwise connected to the upper ed e of the wall 1 is a hinge 11, preferably o the piano tvpe and riveted or otherwise connected to the hinge 11 is a lid 12 having a front wall 13 and end walls 14. The corners of this lid and also the corners of the trunk may be protected by corner pieces 15, and one or more locks 16 of a conventional form may be used to secure the lid in a closed position.

The rear edge of the lid 12 has a semicylindrical overhanging shield or guard 17 fitting about the upper part of the piano hinge to prevent the elements from possibly injuring the hinge.

The lower edges of the lid walls 13 and 14 are, as best shown in Figs. 3, 4 and 5 provided with inturned upstanding flanges 18 which in this instance constitute a holder for the flange 19 of an an lar weather strip 20 preferably made of 'ru her or, a compressible material. The flange 19 is somewhat of a head so that the flanges 18 may be clenched against the flange 19 to firmly hold the weather strip against the inner sides of the walls 12 and 14. In addition to the' flange 19 the weather strip has substantially parallel compressible flanges 21 which are adapted to ride against the upstanding flanges 10 of the trunk walls 2 and 3. The flanges 21 are preferably disposed at a right angle to the flange 19 and when the flanges 21 encounter the upper edges of the flanges 10, the flanges 21 are dragged downwardly over the upper edges of the flanges 10 against the outer Walls thereof and are adapted to exert a constant pressure against the flanges 10 to seal the connection or cap between the flanges 10 and the walls 13 and 14 of the lid 12. The lower edges of the lid walls may contact with the lateral inturned flanges or shoulders of the trunk walls and by reference to Fig. 3, it will be noted that when the lid is closed the weather strip is protected from the elements and provides a seal to exclude dust and other foreign matter from entering the trunk at the juncture of the lid with the trunk body.

Instead of the weather strip being carried by the lid, the weather stri may be carried by the flanges 10 of the trun body, as shown in Fig. 7. To hold the weather strip the flanges 10 are turned outwardly and downwardly, as at 22, and the lid walls have perfectly flat inturned flanges 23 providing rounded edges for the lid walls which may ride against the flanges 21 of the weather strip. The arrangement in Fig. 7, is practically a reversal of the elements pre iously described in connection with Figs. 1 o 6 inelusive.

There is still another weather strip that affords a positive seal and 'this strip is shown in Figs. 8 to 10 inclusive. The strip is designated 24 and has a holding flange/25 disposed substantially at a right angle to scaling flanges 26 and 27, the former being of greater depth than the latter and both flanges cooperating in forming a channel 28. The weather strip, as a continuous piece is mounted in three holders 29, each identical in construction, with each holder including an inturned lateral flange 30 for embracing the flange 25 of the weather strip. Another flange 31 of the holder 29 is adapted to be held by pressing the flanges 18 of the lid walls in engagement with the flange 31, and by reference to Fig. 8, it will be noted that the flange 26 of the weather strip bears against the lid flanges 18.

l/Vhen a lid equipped with the weather strip 24 is placed in a closed position the upstanding flanges 10 of the trunk body extend into the channel 28 of the weather strip and when the lid is secured in a closed position the weather strip is compressed at the bottom of the channel causing the flanges 26 and 27 to snugly engage the trunk flanges 10. In addition to this sealing engagement between the flanges 10 and the weather strip the flange 26 is crowded or compressed in its holder and between the flanges 10 and 18, there being somewhat of a double seal which will exclude dust and other elements and at the same time form a cushion for the lid relative to the trunk body.

It is thought that the utility of my weather strip will be apparent without further description, and while in the drawings there is illustrated the preferred embodiment of my invention, it is to be understood that the structural elements are susceptible to such variations and modifications as fall within the scope of the appended claims.

What I claim is 1. A weather strip for a container, having a lid, comprising a strip holder adapted to be held by the container lid, and a compressible flanged strip in said holder having inner and outer flanges afl'ording a channel to receive edges of the container, and a lateral flange adapted to be held by said holder.

2. A weather strip for a container having a lid, comprising a strip holder adapted to be held by the container lid, and a compressible flanged strip in said holder havin inner and outer flanges affording a channel to receive edges of the container, said holder being angular in cross section with an inturned edge portion holding said stri 3. A weather strip for a container aving a lid, said strip having three flanges, one flange by which said strip is held relative to said container lid and the other flanges adapted for engagement with the container.

4. A trunk having inset wall portions, a lid hinged to said trunk and adapted to close over the inset wall portions of said trunk, a holder in said lid and held by an inturned edge of said lid, and a compressible strip in said holder held by an inturned edge thereof, said strip having flanges forming a channel to receive the inset wall portions of said trunk.

5. A trunk as called for in claim 4 wherein one of the flanges of said strip is of greater depth than the other flange and adapted to be crowded between said holder and the inset wall portions of said trunk.

In testimony whereof I afflx my signature.

FREDERICK PAQUETTE.
