signor to The Adhesive Products Co., San' Francisco, Calif., a corporation of California Application April 7, 1937, Serial No. 135,495

4 Claims.

The present invention relates to parcel handles, and particularly to parcel handles of the gummedpaper type designed for ready application to light parcels wrapped in paper or the like.

It is the object of this invention to provide a light yet durable and inexpensive handle which may be quickly attached to packages.

A further object of the invention is the provision of a package handle formed of gummed paper and so designed and reinforced as to give the handle in use strength greatly in excess of the strength 'of the paper itself.

A still further object of the invention is the provision of a handle formed principally of 5 gummed paper stock, the perforation and cutting of which is reduced to a minimum so that the strength of the stock is reduced as little as possible, and the neat appearance thereof is retained under all circumstances.

A preferred form of the invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, reference to which is made in the following specification wherein further objects and advantages are made apparent.

In the drawing Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a handle embodying my invention; 1

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the same handle viewed from the bottom;

Fig. 3 is a view similar to Fig. 2 with some parts of the handle removed and torn away to illustrate the manner in which the same is constructed;

Fig. 4 is an enlarged perspective view of a por- 35 tion of reinforced paper tape employed in the construction of the handle; and

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of a parcel showing a handle attached thereto.

Referring in detail to the drawing, the handle 40 is shown as comprising abody member iii of a conventional grade of gummed paper tape such as is commonly used for the sealing of paper parcels, the under side thereof only being gummed as illustrated in Fig. 2. A bail member I I formed 45 of folded reinforced paper tape is secured to the body member "I by being passed through spaced slots I! in said body member. The slots l2, as illustrated in Figs. 2 and 3, are formed with a U-shaped cut passing through the paper of the 50 body member l0 so that a small tab gives way toward the under side of the paper to permit of insertion of the ends of the bail member Ii. After being inserted in this manner, the ends I l of the bail member II are bent back into contact 66 with the bottom or gummer surface of the body (c1. sea-52) member ill, the gum having been moistened at this point so that the ends of the handle adhere firmly to this surface, occupying the position illustrated in Fig. 2.

The handle, as stated above, is designed for 5 application to light parcels, and is preferably applied over an edge of the parcel in the manner illustrated in Fig. 5 so that the force resulting from the weight of the parcel is exerted lengthwise of the handle ends l3. For some shapes and 1 sizes of parcels, however, it is necessary that the handle be applied flat as in the position illustrated in Fig. l, in which case it is desirable that the handle be reinforced at the point where the bail member passes through the slots I! to inu sure against the paper of the body member ID being torn adjacent these slots due to the upward pull on the bail member. A suitable reinforcement for this purpose is applied in the form of transversely extending paper strips I5 secured to 20 the bottom side of the base member I! adjacent the slots I2. These strips are preferably of heavier paper than that forming the body member of the handle, and are secured to the handle by being pressed against it after the gum of the 25 handle has been moistened over the areas to be occupied by the strips.

The reinforcing strips, as illustrated in Fig. 3, are.not gummed on their upper surface, as the gum of the body member ID serves to retain them 30 in place, but are gummed on their bottom surfaces so that when the gum of the finished handle is moistened for application to a parcel, the gum on the bottom'surface of the strips I5 is also moistened, and the strips themselves adhere to the parcel, thus adding-to the strength of the handle in use and further preventing the bail member from pulling away from the parcel and tearing the paper of body member III. A further advantage of the reinforcing strips I5 is their 40 tendency to distribute the load of the bail throughout the entire width of the body member l0. As the body member and ball and reinforcing strip are securely fastened together by gum, and as the body member and reinforcing strip 5 both adhere to the surface of the parcel, the stress at the end of the bail is distributed over a large area and is therefore unlikely to result in fracture of the paper either on the parcel or the handle. 5

The bail member II is flexible and is creased to a rectangular shape so that it will fold readily into a flat position against the upper-surface of the body member ll, thus making possible the I reeling or packaging of a large supply of handles in a relatively small space. In order that the bail member II, which is formed principally of paper, may not break even though it become damp or damaged in handling, and in order that it will retain a flat shape which is neat in appearance and comfortable though held in the hand for a long while, it is constructed in the form illustrated in Fig. 4. In this figure, the bail member H is illustrated as formed of gummed paper which is folded upon itself so that the outer edges thereof abut centrally of its underside, and the gummed surface is disposed inwardly. During the folding which takes place after the gummed surface of the paper has been thoroughly moistened, two pieces of twine, preferably of cotton or other inexpensive and durable material, are included between the gummed surfaces at the point of folding thereof. Owing to this construction of the member which forms the bail of the handle, a double thickness of paper is provided so that there is little tendency for it to bunch up or gather, even though it is tightly compressed in the hand. The edges of this member are not only reinforced due to the strength of the twine included in them, but ar maintained in a rounded form so that they do not tend to cut the hand and so that it is impossible for them to split or tear during ordi nary use.

The present application illustrates a single handle already cut to a desired length. In practice, the handles may be made on a continuous strip of gummed tape which may be scored or perforated for separation between handles or which may be cut apart during manufacture, the method chosen depending upon the manner in which it is desired to dispense the handles.

While I have shown a preferred form of my invention, and described the same in more or less specific terms, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited by this disclosure and may be modified within the scope of the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure.by Letters Patent is- 1. A parcel handle comprising a gummed paperbodymemberhavingapairofspaced perforations therein, an imperforate area between said perforations, and a bail member of flexible tape having ends extending through said perforations and secured to the gummed side of said body member.

2. A parcel handle comprising a body member of gummed paper, a bail member extending through the body member and having ends secured to the gummed surface thereof, and reinforcing members being secured to the gummed surface of the body member and having their exposed surfaces gummed.

3. A parcel handle comprising a bail member of folded paper tape including a twine reinforcing member within each of its edges, a body member of gummed paper having spaced U- shaped cuts formed therein, the ends of said ball member extending through said cuts and being secured to the gummed surface of the body member, and reinforcing members comprising gummed strips having their, ungummed surfaces secured to the gummed surface of the body member transversely thereof and crossing WOODFORD I".
