BOX PROTECTOR.

Application filed July 18, 1925.

This invention aims to provide asimple means whereby frail boxes may be reinforced to withstand the severe treatment which containers receive in transportation.

Another object of the invention is so to construct the reinforcement that it may be detached from one container and used again. It is within the province of the disclosure to improve generally and to enhance the utility of devices of that type to which the invention appertains With the above and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed, may be made within the scope of what is claimed, without departing from the spirit of the invention.

In the accompanying drawings Figure 1 shows in perspective, a device constructed in accordance with the invention, mounted on a box; Figure 2 is a perspective of one of the corner pieces; Figure 3 is a perspective of one of the edge strips; Figure 4 is a section taken about on the line li of Figure 1.

The device embodies three-sided corner pieces 1, which may be made of metal, each corner piece embodying plates 2 so located with respect to each other that the member 1 will fit on the corner of a box 3, the corner pieces having reduced arms 4 provided with inturned flanges 5 which strengthen the arms. Edge strips 6, in the form of angle members, are supplied, and have inturned flanges 7 the arms 4 being received within the edge strips 6, and the flanges 7 and 5 being interengaged so that the edge strips will not be detached accidently, the flange 7 reinforcing the edge strips, and the edge stripsguarding the edges of the box 3 at the angles of the box. The edge strips 6 are long enough so that they cannot slide endwise out of engagement with the arms 4. Binders 8 are supplied and are connected, by twisting or otherwise, with projections 9 on the plates 2 of adjacent corner pieces 1. The projections 9 may be made in any desired way, but the drawings show them as hooks struck from the plates Serial No. 44,062.

2although this detail is not insisted upon. Strengthening plates 10 are provided and rest against the sides of the box 3. The plates 10 are not fastened to the sides of the box. They are of such area, compared with the area of the sides of the box, that they will have an appreciable effect in reinforcing the sides of the box. Opposite edges of the plates 10 are concaved, as at 11, and those edges have overhanging flanges 12, coextensivein length with the edges 11, the intermediate portions of the binders 8 being detachably engaged with the flanges 12. The binders 8 may be pieces of wire, and in any event, the device is so constructed that it will not only protect the corners and edges of a box, but, as well, be capable of ready removal and repeated use. Although a box has been mentioned, it will be obvious that the article may be used on any sort of a container.

From the foregoing it will be apparent that the removability of the binder framing is an important and advantageous feature of the invention, not only because it permits of the reuse of such binder framing, but also because it permits of the re-useof the material of which the box or container is made. That is to say, as will be observed from Fig. 4 of the drawings the box 3 may be made up of a series of panels or plates A and B which are held in their assembled relation by means of the reinforcing binder framing previously described. The present binder framing therefore not only provides and constitutes a detachable reinforcement for the container, but also holds the parts of the container in assembled form without the aid of nails, screws, or fastenings of any kind.

I claim 1. Box construction comprising loose panel pieces assembled to form a container, a skeleton binder framing including corner pieces and edge strips engaging and covering the corner and edge joints of the container, said corner pieces and edge strips having telescopic rigidly interfitting parts, and means for holding said interfitting parts against separation only in the direction reverse to that in which they were moved to interfit.

2. Box construction comprising loose panel pieces assembled to form a container,

a skeleton binder framing including corner pieces and edge strips for respectively engaging and covering the corner and edge oints of the container, said corner pieces and edge strips having telescopically rigidly interfitting parts and means independent oi said interlitting parts to hold and connect the corner pieces together.

3. Means for assembling and holding loose panels in box form comprising a binder framing including corner members, arms projecting from said corner members, reinforcing and edge joint projecting m embers for receiving said arms and holding the same against lateral and edgewise movement to provide a self-sustaining framing,

and means for holding said arms and the members in assembled relation.

l. Means for assembling and holding loose panels in box form comprising a binder fren'iing including corner members, arms projecting from said corner members, reinforcing and edge joint protecting members for receiving said arms and holding the same against lateral and edgewise moven'ient to provide a self-sustaining framing, and means for connecting the corner pieces only.

In testin'iony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto aflixed my signaturn.
