Segal Safety Razor Corporation, N. Y., a corporation of New York New York, N.'Y., assgnor to New York,

Application December 13, 1935, Serial No. 54,184

Claims.

This invention relates to a structurally and functionally improved receptacle for properly housing and displaying articles.

While the present invention may be employed in numerous different associations, it is primarily intended for the displaying and housing of articles such as razor blade holders and blades, it being an object of the invention to furnish an article of this character which will, in an ,.10 improved manner, house a razor or blade holder together with a suitable number of blades and in such manner that these units will not become injured in shipment or in handling of the receptacle.

A further object of the invention is that of furnishing a receptacle of this character in which the units contained within the same will be quite accessible when the receptacle is opened, the

present device, moreover, lending itself to a proper display of the housed units.

A still further object of the invention is that of furnishing a receptacle, the component parts of which may be readily manufactured by well known methods and, if desired, by automatic machinery, these parts being capable of ready assemblage to furnish a unitary device which will operate in a satisfactory manner over long periods of time, and which device may be produced for a nominal figure.

With these and other objects in mind, reference is had to the attached sheet of drawings illustrating practical embodiments of the invention, and in which:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of one form of receptacle embodying the present invention;

Fig. 2 is a plan view thereof;

Figs. 3 and 4 are sectional views taken along the lines 3-3 and 4 4, respectively, and in the direction of the arrows as indicated in Fig. 2;

40 Fig. 5 is a perspective view, showing a slightly different form of receptacle from that illustrated in the preceding figures;

Fig. 6 is a fragmentary perspective view of an alternative form of construction; and

Fig. 'l is a fragmentary plan View showing a still further form of structure which might be employed.

Referring to the drawing, the numeral I0 indicates a receptacle body, which may be formed of any desirable material such as wood, phenolic resin, ber, or otherwise, and which body may normally be closed by a cover -such as I I. As illustrated in Figs. l to 4, this cover is connected to the body by rigidly securing to the former an L- shaped plate I2 (of, for example, metal), and

(Cl. 20G-16) which plate is pivotally connected as at I3 to the body. The arm of the plate is secured to the cover and is of a length such that it equals substantially the depth of the receptacle body. Consequently, when the cover is in closed position, this arm of the plate will constitute, in effect, a rear wall for the receptacle. The plate, moreover, may conveniently be formed with a centrally disposed notch in the outer edge of its second arm, as has been indicated at I4. The purpose of this notch is that of providing a rest for the shank of a razor I5, the head of which may lie to the rear of the free edge of plate I2.

Now with a View to maintaining the cover in closed position and against the probability of accidental shifting with respect to the receptacle body, the latter may sup-port a resilient tongue I6 which tends to normally move outward and which lies adjacent the forward edge of the receptable body. The inner face of the adjacent cover portion may be notched to receive the end of this tongue, and consequently, as shown in Fig. 3, the tongue will enter this recess to prevent accidental movement of the parts with respect to each other. However, the degree of engagement of these parts will not be such as to prevent a user from overcoming this latching structure. In this connection, it is obvious that by simply grasping the cover with one hand and the receptacle with the other, these parts may be swung from the position shown in Fig. 3 to that illustrated in Fig. 1.

In order to provide compartments for blades as well as with a view to confining the razor or blade holder against undue movement within the receptacle, a spring strip may be employed which is bent to provide a double U-shaped configuration. The area of this strip is normally slightly in excess of the width of the receptacle. However, due to its inherent resiliency, it may be compressed so as to be confined within the receptacle. Thereafter, and upon being released, it will frictionally engage the inner faces of the receptacle body so that accidental dislodgment is precluded. In this connection, it will be 0bserved that the inner faces of the' receptacle may be recessed as indicated at Il, to prevent any possibility of a longitudinal shifting of the strip. This member, as illustrated in Figs. 1 to 4, may have relatively broad arm or leg portions I8, which continue in transversely extending base portions I9 and in arms or legs 20 connecting these portions with a central portion 2|. The tongue or catch I6 is integral with the strip, and, as illustrated, the depth or width of the outer ends or legs may be such that they extend materially above the edges of the receptacle body.

In this manner it will be obvious that three compartments are furnished. New and/or used blades 22 may be disposed within the side compartments and the shank of the razor or holder I5 may reciprocate Within and be confined by the central compartment. With the apparatus as shown in Fig. 1, the lid may be swung downwardly and the edge of plate I2 will initially cause the entire razor or holder to shift forwardly and thereupon to shift inwardly during the nal stages of lid seating. During these movements a sidewise movement of the member I5 will be precluded incident to the rest afforded by the notch I4. Likewise, due to the depth or width of arms I8 the blades will not be able to assume an inclined or tilted position such that the cover will contact the same.

In the form of apparatus shown in Fig. 5, the strip may have the upper edges of its outer legs or arms extend upwardly as indicated at 23, to furnish rests which prevent the blades from assuming too inclined a position. Likewise, in lieu of the plate I2, the cover may be directly and hingedly connected, as at 24, to the receptacle body, and the latter is furnished with an integral or xed rear wall portion. The cover in this instance supports a loop or stirrup 25 of a width such that the head of the razor or holder may be accommodated between the arms of the same. In this manner, the holder is guided so that no improper shifting of the same with respect to the receptacle may occur. However, under all normal circumstances, the lid may be swung so that this implement is either securely housed, or else is brought up to proper displayed position. Coincident with the shipment of the latter, it is obvious that the holder may readily be grasped and removed from the receptacle, or may be readily replaced within the same.

It will be apparent that the plate I2 might be formed integrally with the lid instead of constituting a separate element secured thereto. It will also be apparent that as a consequence of having relatively high walls I8 or extended portions 23, blades may readily be housed within the receptacle without there being any danger that the lid of the latter will strike against the upper edges of the blades and thus destroy their usefulness. The same effect may be achieved by employing the construction shown, for example, in Fig. 6, in which the receptacle body I0 is formed with an inwardly extending flange 26 adjacent its upper side edges. These flanges will serve to maintain any blades in sufficiently upright condition to assure against the lid striking them. In this form oi construction the compartmentproviding strip 2 may simply terminate in an inwardly extending portion 28. If it is not desired to adopt a structure such as that shown in Fig. 6, a strip of the type shown in Fig. 7 may be employed, in which the body 29 is preferably of the same height or width throughout. 'I'he end legs 3B of this body have outwardly extending portions 3| which serve to space the legs 30 from the inner faces of the receptacle body. Consequently, even if a blade assumes an inclined position, and despite the fact that the height of the strip is not great, such inclination cannot result in the upper edges of the blades extending into the path of movement of the lid.

In all forms of construction, it will be apparent that the razor or blade holder will serve to maintain the lid in elevated position after the latter has been shifted to such position. Additionally, a user will have no diiiculty in grasping the holder, for the obvious reason that it has been elevated to a convenient position. Thus, the space accommodating the stem of the holder may be relatively constricted, in that it may never be necessary for the operator to introduce his ngers into such space for the purpose of grasping the holder. This, of course, is also true of the space accommodating the head.

Obviously, numerous changes in construction and rearrangement of the parts might be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention as deiined by the claims.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed is:

1.
