OGorman, New York, N.Y., assiguor to Garrett Container Corporation, New York, N.Y., a corporation of New York Application November 1, 1957, Serial No. 693,839

10 Claims. (Cl. 229-11) This invention relates to small pocketable boxes, particularly for protectively housing and dispensing cigarettes.

The primary object of the present invention is to generally improve cigarette boxes. A more particular object is to provide a box adapted for easy one-hand operation. Still another object is to provide a slide box comprising an outer container and an inner slide carrying the cigarettes, with the slide including a rigid but flexibly hinged cap to close the open end of the outer container. In accordance with a further feature and object of the invention, the arrangement is such that the cap readily tips away from the upper ends of the cigarettes when the slide is raised, and on the other hand, the cap is automatically swung into position over the ends of the cig-' arettes when the slide is pulled down.

To accomplish the foregoing general objects, and other more specific objects which will hereinafter appear, my invention resides in the slide box, and the elements thereof, and their relation one to another, as are hereinafter more particularly described in the following specification. The specification is accompanied by drawings, in which:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view showing a box embodying features of my invention, with the box closed;

Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the box open to expose and to dispense cigarettes;

Fig. 3 shows the blank used to form the outer container of the box;

Fig. 4 shows the blank used to form the inner slide of the box;

Fig. 5 illustrates partial folding of the slide;

Fig. 6 shows the slide completely folded;

Fig. 7 shows partial folding of the outer container;

Fig. 8 illustrates a further step in the folding of the outer container;

Fig. 9 shows still another step in the folding of the outer container;

Fig. 10 shows the folded outer container;

Fig. 11 is a vertical section through an open box, drawn to enlarged scale;

Fig. 12 is a vertical section through a closed box, drawn to enlarged scale;

Fig. 13 is explanatory of a modification of the slide; and

Fig. 14 is explanatory of a modification of the outer container.

Referring to the drawing, and more particularly to Figs. 1 and 2, the slide box comprises an outer container 12, and an inner slide 14, the latter carrying cigarettes 16, or any like bunch of collateral, slender, elongated articles, for example, little cigars, candy cigarettes, etc. The outer container 12 is open at the top, its open peripheral edge being indicated at 18. v 1

The slide comprises a body portion (24 in Figs. 11 and 12) which is concealed within the container 12, and it further comprises a cap 20, and'a neck 22 between the cap 20 and the body 24. Referring to Fig. 11, the

nited States Patent 0 2,929,542 Patented Mar. 22, 1960 body 24 of the slide has a closed bottom 26, and is dimensioned to be frictionally slidable in the container 12. The body 24 is shorter than the container 12, as is best shown in Fig. 12. By moving the slide 14 upward, the cap 20 and neck 22 are exposed above the outer container 12. In Figs. 2 and 11 it will be seen that the neck 22 is flexible, so that the cap then readily tips rearward away from the upper ends of the cigarettes 16. Conversely, by comparison of Figs. 11 and 12 (or 1 and 2), it will be seen that when the slide 14 is pulled down into the outer container 12, the cap is automatically swung into position over the ends of the cigarettes, thereby closing the open top end of the box, as shown in Figs. 1 and 12.

The outer container has a closed rectangular bottom (28 in Figs. 11 and 12). The face walls, that is, the front and back walls, are rectangular, and similarly the edge walls are rectangular. One of the walls, preferably the front wall, has a finger slot 30 extending longitudinally therethrough.

Referring to Figs. 11 and 12, the cap 20 preferably has a top wall 32, a back wall 34, and short edge walls 36, but it has no front wall. The neck 22 is preferably formed integrally with the back wall 34 of the cap and the back wall 38 of the slide, but in such case is scored by a plurality of score lines, in this case three score lines indicated at 40, to make the same flexible even though the paper used for the carton is somewhat stiff.

The front wall of the slide body preferably has a finger hole 42 which is exposed in the finger slot 30, and which facilitates moving the slide up or down by means of ones thumb, as shown in Figs. 11 and 12, while holding the package in one hand. Preferably the front wall of the slide body is made of double thickness, with the inner layer imperforate, while the outer layer has the finger hole 42.

A preferred form of blank for the slide is shown in Fig. 4 of the drawing. This has areas making up a back wall 38, edge walls 44, 46, and overlapping front walls' 48 and 50. The walls have projections at the bottom forming tabs 5'2, 54 and flaps 56, 58.

Referring next to Fig. 5, the edge wall 46 has been folded upwardly, and the front wall 50 has been folded to the left. The tabs 52 and 54 are shown turned about ninety degrees. It will be evident that the edge wall 44 may next be turned upward, and the front wall 48 turned over to the right. as shown in Fig. 6. Moreover, with the tabs 52 and 54 turned in, it becomes an easy matter to bend the flap 58, upward, and the flap 56 downward, to close the bottom. Cement or adhesive is shown applied to fiap 56, and it will be understood that the adhesive mav be applied to flap 58 instead of flap 56, if flap 58 is folded outside flap 56.

In Figs. 4, 5 and 6, the front wall 48 has the finger hole 42. The front wall 48 is therefore folded outside the front wall 50. In Fig. 5, cement or adhesive is shown at 600m front wall 50, but the adhesive may be applied to the inner face of front wall 48, instead of the outer face of front wall 50.

Reverting to Fig. 4, the back 34 of the cap is a direct extension of the back 38, and these are integrally connected by the neck 22. The multiple score lines for the neck are shown at 40. The top of the cap is formed by the rectangle 32, and the sides of the cap are formed by the generally triangular parts 36. The latter have tabs 62 projecting upwardly therefrom, and the top 32 has a flan 64 projecting upwardly.

Referring now to Fig. 5, the sides 36 have been turned upward, and the tabs 62 have been turned at right angles. The top 32 may nextbe turned upward, following which the flap 64 may be reversely turned downward and inward, so that thetabs 62. are embraced between the top steam 32 and the flap 64. Cement or adhesive isapplied to the flap 64. as shown in Fig. 5, and the parts are thus held in final form when folded as shown in Fig. 6. At this time, the cap has substantially a triple thickness at the top 32, counting the tabs 62. The cap is rigid, because of the sides 36.

The blank for the outer container is shown in Fig. 3,

and it comprises a front wall 66, back wall68, edge walls 70 and 72, and an overlapping edge Wall 74. I The walls are extended at the bottom to provide tabs 76, 78 and flaps 80, 82. The walls are; also projected at the top to provide relatively narrow flanges 84, 86, 88 and 90. The finger slot 30 is punched throiigh the front wall 66 during--rnanufacture of the blank. i

The flanges at thetop may have a cement or adhesive applied thereto, and are then folded downward and secured in position, as shown by the change from Fig. 3 to Fig. 7. In simplest form, all four flanges are turned down simultaneously, but if desired, the flange Q may be left up at this time (Fig. 7) for a reason explained v later.

The blank is then rolled or folded on yertical and lines to form a rectangular tube. This is suggested in Fig. 8,

in which the front wall 66 has been turned up, and the edge wall 72 has been turned to the .left. 'It will be understood that the opposite edg'e wall 70 (Fig-p7) is not visible in Fig. 8,-it being concealed by the edge wall 72. Also, the tabs 76 and 78 (Fig. 7) have been turned in at right angles from the edge walls, and are not visible in Fig. 8. a

By continuing the rolling or folding operation, the rectangular tube or sleeve may be completed as shown in Fig. 9. Adhesive or cement applied to the edge wall 72 or 74 (Fig. 7) serves to hold the parts in assembled relation, it being understood that adhesive may be applied on the outer face of the inner Wall or on the inner face of the outer wall. The flaps 80 and 82 are turned inward around the tabs, andFig. 8 shows adhesive applied 7 to the flap 80. Here again, (as in Figs. 4, 5 and '6) it will be understood that either flap rnaybe the outer flap, and that adhesive may be applied to the inner face of the outer flap,or the-outer face; of the inner flap.

In Fig. 8 the flange 90 is still up, and it remains so in Fig. 9. However, it is finally turned down, and may be cemented in position. By turning it downlast, it maybe used to enclosethe upper edge of the wall 74,

that is, it encloses both 'thicknesses of the edge wall 7 made upof the parts 72 and 7 4. I If wall. 74 is to be outside, the flange 90r'nay be put at the top of wall 74.

However, it will be understood that it is not essential to so use flange'90, and in simpler form, all four flanges push theslide into the container. The cigarettes may be loaded into the slide laten 'but' in preferred form,

the cigarettes are loaded into the slide before the slide i is put into the container. Indeed, the container or outer blank may be folded about the load'edfslide whenmaking the container. 1

Referring now to Fig. 12 of the drawing, it will be seen that the inturned flange 88 forms a'ledge or stop at itsfbottom edge -92. This cooperates with the top edge 94 of the front wall 48 of the slide, to arrest upward motion of the slide, as "is indicated'by' the'change from Fig. 12 to Fig. -11 of-the 'drawing. .It'will also be observed that'the relative location ofth'e stop edges 92,

94 is such that the cap, 20 and the neck' 22 are moved fully out of the container 12 wh'e'n'the slide is stopped.

' I facilitates free rearward movement of the cap to 4 expose the ends of the cigarettes, as shown in Figs. 2 and 11.

The proportions of the box are such that the cap 20 (Fig. 12) comes a little below the top edge 18 of the container 12, when the slide is moved downward until it reaches the bottom of the container; This helps seal the top of the box during use. 7 During shelf-life the box is wrapped and sealed in the usual cellophane or like wrapper.

It will be understood that the finger hole need not be literally a single hole. It may be made of a number of slots or narrow holes, as shown at 96 in Fig. 13. It will also be understood that it is not essential that the front of the slide beof double thickness, although that is preferred so that the finger holes may be provided in the outer thickness alone. It will also be understood that ridges or corrugations may be formed instead of holes, for the purpose is merely to provide a surface which facilitates movement of the slide by means of ones thumb while holding the box in one hand. However, one large hole is preferred.

It is'convenient but not essential to provide the outer container with a bottom wall; This is so because the slide has its own bottom wall, and the outer container therefore could be open at the bottom, although it is preferred to close it at the bottom in order to strengthen the box and to provide a bottom stop. Fig. 14 shows a modified blank for the outer container. This blank has narrow flanges folded down at the top, and has similar narrow flanges folded up at the bottom. It will be evident that when the blank is folded into a rectangular tube, the tube will be open-ended; By making the outer container slightly longer than the slide, the bottom flange may be used as a bottom stop, analogous to the top front flange being used as a top stop. Itis not essential to have stops, because the movement of the slide in the container is frictional, and ones thumb inotion is limited by the length of the finger slot 30. I

It is believed that, the construction and method of use of my improved slide, as well as the advantages thereof, will be apparent from the foregoing detailed description. It will also beappa'rent thatwhile I have shown and described my invention in several preferred forms, changes may be made in the structures shown, without departing from the scope 'of the invention, as sought to be defined in the following claims. In the foregoing description and in the claims, I refer to the top and bottom of the box, and to fupward and downward move ment of the slide, but this is merely. for convenience, because the box need not be held upright. Indeed, in most cases it will be held at an angle, or even horizontal, with the finger slot upward, so that the cap readily drops downward to expose the ends of the cigarettes.
