Patented Dec. '18, 1934 PATENT OFFICE HANDLE CARTON Josiah A. Weaver, Chicago, Ill., assignor to Con tainer Corporation of America, Chicago, 111., a

corporation of Delaware Application January 23,

, 1 Claim.

The present invention relates to handle boxes and more particularly to collapsible boxes or cartons of this type adapted to be constructed of paper or fibre board.

One object of the invention is to provide abox of this type which can be. readily set up from collapsed form and is adapted for shipment as an ordinarily sealed carton, and for carrying by hand.

Other objects'will become apparent as the description proceeds.

Referring to the drawing illustrating a preferred embodiment of the invention:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the box in set-up conditionwith the handle flaps in position for carrying the box in hand; I

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the box in set-up .condition with the tuck flap disposed above the handle flap in condition for ordinary shipment; and

Fig. 3 is a view of the blank from which the box is formed.

Similar reference numerals throughout the several views indicate the same parts.

The present invention findsparticularly advantageous use where it is desired to provide an inexpensive carton which will encourage thecarrying home of bottled or packaged goods in somewhat larger quantities than the retail purchaser usually buys and where it is desired at the same time to have a box that can be used for express or parcel post shipments.

Referring more particularly to the drawing,

cured in tubular form as is well known. The bottom flaps 7, 7 are formed as in the ordinary slotted carton. However, any desirable type of body construction may be employed without departing from the spirit of the invention.

The center section is, in the present instance, scored to provide two wide side walls 8, 8 and two narrow side walls 9 and 10;

1933, Serial No. 653,036

the bottom flaps inwardly and securing them in any desirable manner, as by means of adhesive or tape. The box may then be filled and is ready for closing. If it is desired to adapt the box for hand carrying the flap 15 is firstfolded inward and the flap 1'7 is tucked in against the wall 9. The handle flaps 11, 11 are next bent over into the position illustrated in Fig. 1,whereupon the box may be carried by hand. If it is desired to pack and store or ship the box so as to occupy a minimum'of space the handle flaps are folded inward first after which the flap 15 is bent down thereover and the flap l7 tucked in place, as shown in Fig. 2.

The box may be kept in this condition for any length of time and when the retail customer purchases the box and its contents it may be readily converted into a handle box adapted to be carried away by merely reversing the position of the flaps from the position indicated in Fig, 2 to that of Fig. 1.

It is thus apparent that a simple and convenient carry-home box is thus provided which is easy to set up and may be readily converted to a box of ordinary shipping case form. The flap 15 with its tuck flap 1'7 can be so proportioned as to frictionally hold the handle flaps in place without the necessity of resorting to tape or adhesive when such expedients are not otherwise necessary for shipping requirements.

While the present description sets forth a preferred embodiment of the invention, certain changes may be made in the specific construction without departing from the spirit of the invention, and it is therefore desired that the present Flap extensions 11, 11 are provided on the side embodiment-be considered in all respects as illuswalls 8, 8 and are separated therefrom by score lines 12, 12. Apertures 13, 13 are formed in each flap extension of such size as to readily accommodate a person's fingers. If desired, the flaps may be scored at 14, 14 to facilitate upward bending of the handles when in the position illus- ..,trated in Fig. l.

An additional flap extension 15 is formed on the end'wall 10 and isseparated therefrom by score line 16. The end of this flap extension is provided with a narrow tuck-in flap 17. The flap extension 15 is of a length and widthsufiitrative and not restrictive, reference being had to the appended claim rather than to the fore-. going description to indicate the scope of the invention.

I claim:

A carton of the character described formed from a blank of sheet material and cut and scored to provide two side walls, two end walls and a bottom, handle flaps on the upper edges of said side walls, said handle flaps being of a length substantially co-extensive with but no greater than the corresponding transverse di dimension of the carton, said handle flaps being formed with elongated apertures transversely thereof, a closure flap on the upper end of one of said end walls, said closure flap being of a length and width equal to that of the open end of said carton, and a-tuck-in flap on the end of said closure flap, said closure flap being adapted to underlie said handle flaps and completely close the top of the carton when the handle flaps are in handle-forming position and adapted to overlie said handle flaps to complete'said carton, said tuck-in flap being of suflicient width so that, in the latter position of the handle flaps, the tuck-in flap will frictionally fit within the carton and maintain the handle flaps flat beneath the closure flap.
