4 Claims.

This invention relates to shipping and display receptacles particularly useful for holding golf clubs. The receptacle is made of paper stock and with my invention a strong and durable receptacle or box may be provided made from relatively thin paper board so that it is light in weight and yet amply strong and durable to serve the purposes for which it is designed.

One feature of my invention resides in a means 7 for spacing and holding the golf clubs from each other intermediate the length of the shanks of said clubs, and for holding the end portions of the handles of the clubs against outward movement so that the clubs are held against undesired movement within the receptacle during shipment. A further feature of the invention is to provide a detachable handle holding and engaging unit at an end of the box, of a simple and novel construction, which is telescoped over such end of the box and in the telescoping movement will automatically bind or clamp itself in place. This provides a handle receiving and engaging portion and further greatly strengthens and reinforces the box or receptacle.

The invention may be understood from the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, in which,

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the box or receptacle of my invention showing it as it is used for display purposes.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged horizontal section taken transversely through the box a short distance above the lower end portion thereof.

Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the handle engaging and holding unit which is telescopically passed over the lower end portion of the box.

Fig. 4 is an enlarged longitudinal section therethrough showing the parts in the position that they are to occupy before passing over the lower end of the box.

Fig. 5 is a similar View illustrating the operation of connecting said handle engaging and holding unit when it is partially in place, and

Fig. 6 is a like view showing it when completely in place and as it is operatively positioned in use.

Like reference characters refer to like parts throughout the different figures of the drawings.

The box made from thin paper board has an elongated rectangular bottom I, sides 2, an upper I end 3 and a lower end 4. In practice the sides and ends have the paper board material turned back upon itself, as shown in Figs. 2 and 5, at the sides and ends so that each side and end is of a double thickness, and the outer edges at the bends made by thus turning the material inwardly are of a smooth rounded character.

Transversely across and between the sides 2 of the box a club spacing bar 5 is located having spaced slots 6 therein extending from its upper edge downwardly for a distance, into which the shanks l of the golf clubs may be inserted. The heads of the clubs will lie adjacent theupper end 3 while the handles 1a, at their lower ends, come substantially to or against the lower end 4 of the box, as indicated. This shank spacing bar 5, so far as the present invention is concerned, may be of any desired material or specific construction. In a companion application I have shown a specific and desired form thereof, but insofar as the present invention is concerned it may be of many other and various specific forms of construction.

Telescoping over the lower end portion of the box is a reinforcing and handle engaging unit which is made from a single piece of relatively thin paper board stock. It is formed with two spaced parallel sides 8 and 9 and two parallel ends l0 and H with a closure [2 at the bottom of the unit as shown. The end II is shown as made by two overlapping flaps and the bottom closure 12 is indicated as made by overlapping or interengaging flaps. However, the specific form of construction is not concerned with my invention, as it may be made in many difierent ways.

At the edge of the side 8 an integral extension is is provided of a width equal substantially to the depth of the box less the diameter of a handle la of a golf club. At each end thereof an extension IB is provided bent back upon and against the inner side of the section 13 providing smooth rounded bends at l5 as shown. From the edge of the section l3 opposite to that integrally connected to the side 8 a section 16 extends and at its outer edge a terminal section II. The paper stock may be scored or otherwise rendered easily bendable on lines at the edge portions of the sections 3, l6 and I! so that said sections may be positioned, for example, as shown in Fig. 4, which position they are to occupy at the beginning of telescoping such unit over the lower end of the box.

In Fig. 4, section l3 extends outwardly and the connected section I6 is bent back upon it with the end extensions l4 lying between, as shown. The terminal section I! enters the open end of such element and comes against the inner side of the opposite side 9 of such covering unit as shown in Fig. 4. The lower end of the box is positioned with the end 4 against the section I 6 and the adjacent portion of the bottom I over the section II. On moving the box and such element relatively to each other to telescope the one within the other, when the movement is partially completed, as in Fig. 5, the upper edge of the end 4 will be seated at the bend between sections l6 and I! and the section I3 will have begun to pass downwardly between the opposed sides 2 of the box. A continuation of the move-' ment until it is completed, as in Fig. 6, clamps section I'I between the lower end 4 and the unit bottom closure at I2, and the section I3 will be drawn into the vertical position shown in Fig. 6 between the sides 2 of the box, the connecting section I6 between the parts I3 and I1 lying at an angle to the horizontal as shown. The length of the section I3 being slightly greater than the normal transverse distance between the sides 2 of the box, said sides are pressed outwardly into a clamping or binding engagement with the ends ID of the telescoping handle engaging unit. This makes a secure and tight engagement and one which will not he accidentally or otherwise easily changed. The rounded edges at I5 are capable of withstanding the pressure produced and provide a wider and more durable bearing than if merely the end edges of the section I3 came against the inner sides of the sides 2 of the box.

There is thus provided at the lower end of the box a space between the bottom I and the inner edges of the section I3 into which the handles Ta of the golf clubs may be received as indicated in Fig. 6. The handles of the clubs are held against outward movement and there may be a yielding pressure of the curved bend between the parts I3 and I6 against such handles. This provides a very practical and desirable structure for holding the clubs during shipment and when on display. When the clubs are in the box and are to be shipped it is apparent that a cover will be placed thereover which cover will be of a usual and conventional construction. The strengthening and reinforcing of the box at its lower end is also a desirable and advantageous feature.

The construction described is very practical and useful. The box itself and the lower end telescoping unit associated therewith, each made from a single piece of flat stock, can be shipped in the flat to the customer and then arranged or assembled into form for use. The clubs may be placed therein and shipped by the manufacturer to the seller of clubs who merely has to remove the cover from the box whereupon the clubs are in an advantageous position for show and display.

The invention is defined in the appended claims and is to be considered comprehensive of all forms of structure coming within their scope.

I claim:

1. In a construction of the class described, an elongated container having a rectangular bottom with sides and ends extending at right angles from the bottom, a member adapted to telescopically receive one end of said container located over said end thereof, said member having a closed bottom and an open top, means attached to one side of the open end of said member turned inwardly between the sides of the container and disposed substantially at right angles to the bottom thereof, spaced at its inner edge from the bottom of the container a distance to permit the passage of one end portion of articles to be held and displayed in said container, and means located between the sides and ends of the container for holding elongated articles in the container in spaced apart substantially parallel relation to each other.

2. In a construction of the class described, a container having a rectangular bottom and parallel sides extending substantially at right angles therefrom, a member having a closed bottom and an open top into which one end of the container is inserted, said member having parallel sides one of which extends over the open side of the container at an end thereof, a rectangular section hingedly connected to said side of said member at the open end thereof adapted to be turned downwardly between the sides of the container, a second section hingedly connected to the first section adapted to be engaged by the end of the container when inserted into said member, and a third terminal section hingedly connected to the second section adapted to be located between the bottom of said member and the adjacent end of the container when said container is inserted to its farthermost position within the member.

3. A construction containing the elements in combination defined in claim 2, said first section at each end having an integral extension bent back upon the inner side thereof providing rounded bends, such rounded bends engaging against the sides of the container and pressing them outwardly against the adjacent outer portions of said member into which the container is inserted, thereby frictionally holding said member against displacement from the container.

4. In combination, a box having a rectangular bottom and vertical sides and ends respectively in parallel spaced relation to each other, a member having sides, a closed bottom, and an open top, one end of the box being insertable at the open top of said member, whereby a side of said member covers the open side of the box at said end portion thereof, and means hingedly connected to said side of the member at the edge thereof at its open top adapted to be turned inwardly and extend across between opposite sides of the box and engage thereagainst to press the sides of the box outwardly against the adjacent outer covering portions of said member at said sides of the box.
