FASTENING FOR BOXES, CASES, AND THE LIKE Filed Dec. 22, 1953 I I d2 55 f Kw A 0 Mg/lfZ/e United States Pa FASTENING FOR BOXES, CASES, AND THE LIKE Robert Seymour Cooke, Redditch, England Application December 22, 1953, Serial No. 399,749
2 Claims. (Cl. 292-250) The present invention has relation to fastenings for boxes, cases and the like and which may contain fish, meat, vegetables or other foodstuffs or materials and which may have detachable lids, the present invention having for its object to provide a fastening of a secure, simple and easily actuated character having means for sealing as, for instance, by a wire sealing member.
According to the present invention there is provided a fastening for boxes, cases and the like comprising in combination a bracket adapted for attachment to the lid, a pivotal catch carried thereby co-operative with a pivotal wire frame or member adapted to be secured to the bracket by a wire or like sealing member the cooperation being such that the catch cannot be raised from the fastening position when the pivotal wire frame or member is itself in the fastening postion and normally sealed.
The bracket is fixed by means of screws engaging an underplate which co-operates with the inner face of the front end of the box for location purposes and the lid which is separate from the box is engaged at its rear extremity with a fixed bail or loop on the box, a batten locating the lid and at its forepart the lid is engaged by a pivotal bail or loop which is engaged by the pivotal catch which also engages the outer face of the box for location purposes.
In order that the invention may be clearly understood and readily carried into practice reference may be had to the appended explanatory drawings in which:
Fig. l is a plan view of a fastener in accordance with the present invention.
Fig. 2 is an elevation.
Fig. 3 a longitudinal vertical sectional elevation.
Fig. 4 is a similar view with fastening opened and Fig. illustrates the wire frame.
In a convenient embodiment of the present invention the present fastening is applied to a box a, Fig. 3, having a detachable lid b a remote extremity of which is passed beneath a U-shaped bail or loop and located by a batten on the underside of the lid, the other extremity b of the lid b being located by a pivotal bail or loop 0, the said lid bb resting on the top edge of the box a and being secured by the present fastening member which engages the pivotal bail or loop 0 hinged to the box a and engaged with the lid b and b In this invention the fastening member comprises a bracket d advantageously pressed up from sheet metal having upturned ends d d and integral upturned lugs d at the sides. Pivotally mounted between these lugs is the catch member e which, for a part of its length is of inverted channel formation and is provided with a downwardly turned operative extremity e and two side ears e An extended part of this catch is of three pronged formation, the centre prong e being depressed. The side lugs d are turned upwardly from the base of the bracket d adjacent this position and these side lugs d together with under out parts d (Fig. 3) of the aforesaid integral upturned lugs d constitute bearing sockets for a rectangular wire loop sealing member 1 which has a cranked Patented May 8, 195 6 "ice part f which co-operates with the 'pronged extremity e of the catch e, the remote extremity f of the loop being adapted to co-operate with the upturned extremity d at the rear of the bracket d by virtue of an aperture d (Figs. 3 and 4) which provides for the passage of a wire seal- The front extremity of the bracket is also upturned at d to co-operate with the downwardly channelled formation of the pivotal catch e. This bracket d is secured to the top face of the lid b by virtue of an underplate g, Figs. 3 and 4, having a downwardly directed extremity g which co-operates with the inner face of the end a of the box and the said underplate g is bolted to the bracket d through the lid b at g The pivotal bail or loop 0 on the box may be channelled at its centre for co-operation with the extremity of the pivotal catch ee and in operation the lid b having the fastening def attached has its rear extremity (not shown) passed beneath the fixed bail or loop being located by a batten (not shown) and the lid b placed flatwise upon the top edge of the box a, the pivotal bail or loop 0 is then moved to embrace the front edge b of the lid b, see Fig. 3, and by displacement of the Wire sealing loop 1, the said catch e is caused not only to engage the pivotal bail 0 but also the front edge b of the lid b in its downward position by means of its downwardly turned extremity e and the wire loop f having been simultaneously displaced downwardly it is secured by a wire seal at d and in this manner the box cannot be opened without fracture of the wire seal. The pivotal catch e is actuated by the pivotal movement of the wire loop 1'' and when the latter is down and sealed the catch e cannot be raised by virtue of its forked connection 2 with the cranked part f of the wire, see Fig. 3. In this respect the cranked part f of the wire is set at slightly less than to the plane of the wire frame, so that whilst the wire frame can operate the catch, the catch cannot be raised when the wire frame is down. Upward movement of the loop 1'' raises the catch e.
The lid is particularly secure and safe for the transport of fish, meat, vegetables or other foodstuffs or material.
Further, it is advantageous to raise small protuberances d Figs. 3 and 4, on the outer faces of the side lugs d of the bracket over which the side limbs of the pivotal wire frame 1 are sprung, when the latter is raised to hold the catch in the inoperative position.
I claim:
1. A fastening for a box comprising, in combination, a bracket adapted to be fixed to a box lid, said bracket having upturned ends and upturned ears at its sides, a catch member having downturned sides pivoted to the ears of said bracket and having a downwardly turned operative extremity adapted to swing over the edge of the box lid, the opposite extremity of said catch member being forked, and a wire loop also pivoted to said bracket and having a cranked part extending at an angle of less than 90 to the plane of the loop, said cranked part being slidably cooperable with the forked extremity of said catch member to effectuate the pivoting movement of said catch member and to retain said catch member with its downwardly turned operative extremity extending over the edge of the box lid.
2. A fastening for a box comprising, in combination, a bracket adapted to be fixed to a box lid, said bracket having upturned ends and upturned ears at its sides, a catch member having downturned sides pivoted to the ears of said bracket and a downwardly turned operative extremity adapted to swing over the edge of the box lid, the opposite extremity of said catch member being forked, and a wire loop also pivoted to said bracket and having a cranked part, said cranked part being cooperable with the forked extremity of said catch member to eifectuate the pivoting movement of said catch member and to retain References Cited inthefile. of this patent UNITED STATES PATENTS Cannon etal.
