PACKAGE FOR PINS Filed May 20, 1927 anbemt o'c J .ZWQM $513 1 Gimme 15 Patented'Apr. 7, 1931 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE GEORGE BODEN, OF WATERBUR-Y, CONNECTICUT, ASSIGNOR TO SCOVILL IMANUFACTUR- IN G COMPANY, OF WATERBURY, CONNECTICUT, .A CQBIORATION OF CONNECTICUT PACKAGE FOR PINS Application filedMay 20, 1927. Serial No. 192,971.

This invention relates to packages for pins and like articles.

It is an object of this invention to provide a package simple in construction and in which a mass of pins or like articles may be arranged so that they occupy as small a space as possible; so that they may be easily withdrawn from the package when opened; so that they will remain in their proper relation during handling and present the same appearance upon being opened as they did when originally packaged.

With these and other objects in view the invention consists in the novel arrangements and construction of parts as will hereinafter be described and particularly pointed out in the claims hereunto annexed.

Referring to the drawings, which illustrate one construction for carrying the invention into effect,

Figure 1 is a nisometric view of one form of a package embracing the principle of this invention;

Figure 2 is a similar View of the retaining member for use with the package of Fig. 1;

Figure 3 is a cutaway view, taken on the line 33 of Fig. l, to show the interior construction of the receptacle; and

Figure 4 is an enlarged sectional View through the package, showing the retaining member and cover in place.

In accordance with the best constructions embodying the invention the pin package comprises a container or receptacle in which the pins may be arranged in one or more rows, a retainer or holder for maintaining the pins in place, and, in some cases, a pin support. In the specific embodiment shown in these drawings, a receptacle 1 of any suit able material, such as cardboard, is filled with two rows of pins 2, each row being disposed with the pins substantially in parallel relation. These pins may be arranged in the rows promiscuously, i. e. with their heads and points in no definite relation or they may be arranged with the heads and points lying respectively together. A neat arrangement and one that presents an attractive appearance is more desirable in pin packages and such an arrangement has been shown in the embodiment illustrated in which the pins are arranged in two rows with the heads in each row near the center of the package, the points extending outwardly.

In the particular package shown, in order that the upper surface of the mass of pins may be more or less fiat, a pin support is provided to elevate the pins toward their pointed ends to compensate for the slope due to the gradual decrease in their cross section. For this purpose, there is advantageously provided a false bottom 8 which is preferably formed of the same material as the receptacle. This bottom is bent so as to make the receptacle shallow at the outer sides with a gradual increase to its full depth in the center. In the case shown, the pin support is advantageously formed to divide the pins into two or more rows. For this purpose the bottom 3 is bent upwardly, preferably along its center line, to form a partition 4 along which the heads of the pins in the rows may be aligned. With this construction the pins are arranged in the receptacle with their heads 5 abutting partition 4 and their points 6 extending toward the sides 7 of the receptacle. The mass of pins will thus be thicker at the center of the receptacle than at the sides. This difference in thickness is taken care of by the slope of the portions 8 and 9 of the false bottom so that the upper surface of the mass is substantially fiat, or at most, has but a gradual slope from the center outwardly toward the sides.

The pins, when arranged in the package as above described, are so held in place that when the package is opened for use the pins will present the same appearance of orderliness as they do when originally packed. In the best construction there is provided a holder for the pins which may be of some resilient material and in the specific form herein shown the holder 10 is fashioned from a flat piece of cardboard, its ends or edges being bent or rolled over to form resilient wings or flaps 11, 12, which, when the holder is placed over the surface of the mass of pins, exert suflicient pressure (due to their tendency to unfold) to hold the pins in their original position.

When cover 13 is applied to the receptacle it 1 2 maintains the holder 10 in position and the pressure on the surface of the pins holds them in position. If desired, a locking means such as one or more pins 14: may be inserted 5 through the sides 7 of the receptacle and into the folds of the holder 10. The rows of pins are thus held in place regardless of whether the cover 13 is applied to the receptacle or not. Furthermore, the holder may be unfas 1Q, toned one side only and the pins of one row used without disturbing the pins of the other row. It has been found advisable, although not essential, to glue the folded sides 16 and 17 of the partition 4 together in order to give it added strength and to prevent the separation of the sides.

While the false bottom has been shown in one piece, it is evident that it may be made in two pieces, divided at the top of partition l.

20 It will be understood that the invention is not limited to the specific construction illustrated, but that modification may be made therein without departing from the spirit of the invention as defined in the appended #5 claims.

That is claimed is:

1. A package for pins including a receptacle, a mass of pins arranged substantially in parallel relation therein, a card disposed on the top surface of the mass, said card being folded inwardly to exert a pressure on the pins, and pins for fastening said card in place.

2. A package for pins including a receptacle, a mass of pins arranged substantially in parallel relation therein, a card disposed on the top surface of the mass, said card being folded inwardly to exert a pressure on the pins, and a plurality of pins for fastening said card to the sides of the receptacle, said pins extending through the sides of the receptacle and through the folded edges of the card.

3. A package for pins comprising a receptacle, an inclined bottom therein, the pins being arranged in substantial parallelism with their heads in the deeper portion of the receptacle, a covering member having an inwardly folded edge acting resiliently on the top of the contents and arranged in substantially perpendicular relation thereto, and means to retain the covering member in position.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand.

GEORGE BODEN.
