ATTORNEYS Patented Aug. 16, 1938 FOLD-ER FUR CONTAINERS Robert Rea Brown, Upper Montoiair, N. J. as-

signor to Outserts, Incorporated, .New York, N. Y., a corporation of New York Application August 25,

7 Claims.

This invention relates to a device that is to be attached to containers, such as cans, boxes, bottles, jars and the like, in such a way that the device will be retained in position on the cans,

bottles, etc. as long as is desired, but can be readily detached therefrom or opened without dismembering or rupturing the device or materially injuring it. The device is made of flexible material, such as paper for example, upon which recipes, pictures or printed matter, of any suitable or desirable sort, may be placed for lending attractiveness of .appearance to the device, as well as for the purpose of giving information to the purchasers concerning the contents of the containers.

The device may be made of a continuous strip of flexible material folded into the desired number of sheets or leaves which may, if desired, be of the same size and shape. After the flexible material is folded and attached to the container,

access may be gained to the interior of the folder without detaching it and the folder can be again folded and kept in folded position and this operation can be repeated indefinitely. This is especially advantageous where only a portion of the contents of the container is used at one time and it is desirable to keep the folder attached to the container to avoid the danger of the same becoming lost or misplaced.

one end of the strip which may be of any convenient length up tothe size of one of thesheets or leaves. This fiap may keep the sheets in folded position with the outer surface of this flap and a portion of the outer surface of one of the sheets constituting the surfaces that lie next to a surface of the container. Adhesive attaches to the container 2. portion of the sheet that lies next to it, and, in a modification of the invention, adhesive also attaches a portion of the flap to the container. The device can be removed from the container without rupturing the device. When the adhesive does not attach the flap to the container, the device may be opened and closed without removing it from the container.

The invention will be understood from the description in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which Fig. 1 is an illustrative embodiment of the invention with the folder par- 50 tially opened; Fig. 2 is a similar view with the folder closed and adhered to a container shown broken away; Fig. 3 is a view similar to Fig. 1 showing a slight modification; Fig. 4 is a View similar to Fig. 2 showing another modification; Fig. 5 is a back View of the folder shown in Fig. 4;

The device is provided with a flap or fold at 1936, Serial No. 97,735

be made of paper or other material that can be folded, and upon the surfaces of which printed matter may be placed. The strip I is folded into a number of sheets or leaves 2, 3, 4, that may be the same size or approximately the same size. The number of leaves or sheets 4 is varied in accordance with the need for extent of surface for the printed matter. A short fold or flap 5 isprovided at the free end of the sheet or leaf 2 and an adhesive 6, such as glue for example, is provided on the back of the sheet or. leaf 3,-so that it can be adhered or stuck to the outside surface of a bottle or other container 1, as shown broken away in Fig. 2. The adhesive 6 may be a spot at the middle of the sheet 3 or it may be a streak of adhesive extending partially or entirely across this sheet perpendicular to its edges.

The modification shown in Fig. 3 is similar to that just described and the parts are indicated by the same reference characters with primes, the number of sheets in Fig. 3 differing from those in Fig. l and also being shown in a different po sition preparatory to closing the folder. As is obvious from Figs. 2 and 3, the folder is closed by pushing the fiap or fold 5 or 5' under the back side of the right hand edge of sheet 3 or 3' whereupon the folder is held in place in folded position but can be opened and closed whenever desired, simply by pulling out the flap 5 or. 5 and then closing the same as already described.

The flap may be longer or extend farther along the back side of the second sheet and its edge may be glued to the container, as shown in Fig. 4, or it may be extended even farther and be as large as one of the sheets, as shown in Fig. 9, with a hole in it or a notch in its edge so that adhesive can attach one of the sheets to the container.

In the modification shown in Figs. 4, 5 and 6, the strip of paper or the like is folded, so that a half size sheet or flap I0 is at one end and is bent or folded at l2 to form the next sheet ll which lies on the outside of the folder and is bent or folded at 13 to form the next sheet 14 which is in turn bent at its other edge, and so on for the requisite number of sheets that are folded, as shown in Figs. 4 and 6. This folder does not harden, but remains permanently sticky,

the folder can be opened by pulling the portion 14 loose, as indicated in Fig. 6, and can be closed again when desired. However, when it is desired to remove the folder, this can be done by pulling the portion ID away also.

In the modification shown in Figs. '7, 8 and 9, the folder is made of a strip having the folds as indicated at IT. The strip is folded into a number of leaves IS in such a manner that the first leaf I8 is on one out side when the folder is folded, and the strip I8" is on the other out side when the folder is folded. 1

The leaf 18' may be regarded as the flap. It is provided with a small hole 19 at its middle or other location and a spot of adhesive 20 is placed upon the container 1 to which the folder is to be attached in such a position that when the folded folder is pressedagainst the container 1, some of the adhesive will pass through the hole Hi. When the folder is thus pressed against the container in its folded position the adhesive 20, which passes through the opening I9, will adhere to the third leaf and hold the folder in its folded position on the container. A small amount of the adhesive 20 is shown in Fig. 9 as adhering to the third leaf after the folder has been opened. The folder may be entirely removed without rupturing it, as very little, if any, of the adhesive reaches the flap l8. Or it may be made so that it can be opened and closed repeatedly without removing it or rupturing it by having the glue 20 contact only with the third leaf and providing a slot in the flap [8 from the hole l9 to the end of this fiap.

I claim:

In combination, a continuous strip folder and a support, said folder including a flap extending between the body of said folder and said support, and adhesive limited to a small area at the back of a sheet of said folder at a sub stantial distance from its edges attaching said folder to said support so that its back surface lies adjacent said support leaving the remainder of said sheet free from said support, said folder being adapted to be removed from said support as a whole without rupturing or dismembering it, said flap being adapted to hold said folder closed when in position on said support.
