Application April s, 1949;- serial No. 86,300

` The invention relates to a size wrapper for ladies hose or stockings. Sometimes in the packing of ladies hosiery in boxes for shipment the packers do not carefully check the lengths of the stockings, and the wrong size sticker label is put on the stocking, and this leads to confusion in the subsequent sale of the stockings to a purchaser. Also the size sticker labels sometimes come off, and the retailer has to spend' time checking -the stockings for size. Sometimes also the customer insists on having the stocking measured, and this takes the clerks time. The object of the present invention is tol avoid the above named difiiculties by providing a size indicating device which is packed with each pair of stockings, so that the vlength of hose may be readily checked without any guesswork by the manufacturer or shipper, the retailer, and the customer, the device also forming a protective covering for the hose.

The invention further yconsists in the several features hereinafter set forth and more particularly denned by claims at the conclusion hereof.

In the drawings:

Fig. 1 is a front elevation view of a size indicator, embodying the invention, parts being broken away;

Fig. 2 is a side elevation view of the indicator and the hose;

Fig. 3 is a View similar to Fig. 1, showing certain modifications, parts being broken away;

Fig. 4 shows a plan View of a pair of stockings with the indicator embodying the invention packed for shipment;

Fig. 5 is a diagrammatic view of the folded stockings and indicator;

Fig. 6 is a perspective view similar to Fig. 4 showing the indicator of the form shown in Fig. 3 packed with the hose in a box for shipment;

Fig. 7 is an enlarged detailed elevation View of a portion of the indicator.

Fig. 8 is a view similar to Fig. 1 showing certain modifications, parts being broken away.

Referring to the drawings, the indicator device embodying the invention comprises a sheet of paper or other suitable flexible wrapping inaterial which is preferably cut out tothe same dimensions as a stocking usually furnished by the trade, for example, twenty-seven to thirty-six inches, and whose foot is cut to represent the longest length, for example, II Standard stocking lengths usually run from 2'? to 36, and the foot length from 81/2 to 11. The stocking-form cut sheet 8 at the outer end of its leg portion Q is provided with a series of spaced sets of size indicating 4 claims. (crece-7) indicator and notches I0, the notches ated with a printed size indication I I.` The outer end of its foot portion I2 is provided with spaced sets of size lines I3 associated with a size indication number I4. With the above arrangement the length of a standard length stocking and also its foot size can be readily ascertained by matching up the form cut sheet 8 with the stocking to be measured, starting with the heel l5 of the stock- 0 ing' and noting where the top I6 of the stocking ends with reference to the form 8 as, for example, wherel the form is cut to the dimensions of the longest stocking usually furnished by the trade, at the notches ID corresponding with a thirtyve inch length stocking, as shown in Fig. l, and,

the vfoot size of this stocking vmay also be readily' compared to the stocking sizes It indicated on the form. Instead of cutting the form to the longest length size there may be a series of forms cut to the leg lengths of 36 to 27, respectively, and where the leg length is over 27, the shorter lengths are also indicated by the notches l0 and indicia I I on these forms. This type of form would be used by manufacturers having a large production. The sheet 8 is intended to be packed with each pair of stockings as by folding it with the pair of stockings as indicated diagrammatically in Fig. 5 where the thin line Il indicates the indicator and wrapper sheet 8 and the heavy line i8 indicates the stockings. The stockings with the size indicating wrapper sheet 8 in their folded condition are placed in a box I 9 for shipment, the box usually being of a length that will permit showing the size length indications I l, as shown in Fig. 4. Instead of the wrapper sheet 8 being formed of one piece it may have a composite sheet structure 20 at the size indicating end of its leg portion, as shown in Fig. 3, which includes a transparent strip portion 2l of cellophane or other suitable transparent material associated with opaque side portions 22 with sets of notches 23 and indications 24 similar to the notches It and indications I I of the first described construction, and it is to be noted the indications I I', I3, and 24 are also preferably printed on both sides of the wrapper and indicator. Fig. 7 shows that the notches 23 are formed by cutting inclined cuts 25 in thesheet meeting at a point 26. Fig. 6 shows a wrapper of the type shown in Fig. 3 as packed in a box 21 with a pair of stockings, the transparent sheet 2l permitting the end of the stocking being ree dily seen and its position compared with one of the length indications 24. Instead of cutting the wrapper to the exact configuration of the leg, this wrapper may be a sheet of material of substantially uniof each set being associc 3 form width as indicated by the lines 28, 29, and 3u in Fig. 8 and have the heel and lower leg portion 3l of the stocking printed thereon for comparison of the leg length of the stocking with the form in the same Way as the cut form.

The indicator and wrapper above described does away with the stickers usually employed which are objectionable because sometimes they come off and other times in removing them the stocking, particularly the ne gauge variety, may. be snagged. Its use with a stocking provides an accurate gauge for checking the length of the stockf` ing at the factory before shipment, and also permits the sales clerk and the customer' to check the length, resulting in fewer returns or exchanges of this type of merchandise.

I desire it to be understood that thiseinventionz is not to be limited to any particular form or arl rangement of parts except in so far as such limitations are included in the claims.

What I claim as my invention is:v l. A hose'size indicator and wrapper for' hose of varying sizes comprising a sheet of flexiblel Wrapping material in the form of al stocking having a leg length corresponding to the length ofA the longest size hose to be wrapped, the upper part of the leg portion of said sheet being provided with spaced sets of notches associated with length indicatingindicia to permit measuring the lengthk of any hose wrapped with said sheet in' comparativesize juxtaposed relation thereto on said sheet.

2. A hose indicator and wrapper forA hose` of. varying sizes comprising a sheet of flexible Wrapping material in the form of 'a stocking juxtaposable uponthe hose to be wrappedand measured. and having a leg length corresponding, to the standard length of the hose, the upper part ofthe 4 leg portion of said sheet inwardly of its outer end being provided with spaced length indicating means and a transparent portion permitting measuring the length of the hose juxtaposed relative to said sheet and wrapped therewith and the viewing of the upper end of said hose through said transparent portion.

3. A hose size indicator as defined in claim 2 having a foot portion whose length corresponds to the lengthof the largest footsize and hasspaced size length indicia for juxtaposed comparative relation with the hose to be measured.

4. A hose size indicator and wrapper for hose of varying-sizes comprising a sheet of iieXible Wrapping material having an outline portion for direct alinement with the heel of the hose to be Wrapped and4 having a leg length corresponding toa standard'length of hose, the upperpart of therlegfportion of said sheet inwardly of its outer end being provided Wthlspaced length indicating means for visual -comparison withV the actual length of hosewrapped in juxtaposition therewith, said sheetacting as an alineable measuring' means having theheelportion as a definite starting point for measuring the length of vtheV hose wrapped with said sheet.
