CONTAINER Filed April 24, 1962 FIG.I

INVENTOR.

Richard E. Loderhose ATTORNEY United States Patent 3,183,614 CONTAINER Richard E. Loderhose, 84-25 Radnor St., Jamaica Estates, N.Y. Filed Apr. 24, 1962, Ser. No. 189,810 2 Claims. (Cl. 40-312) This invention relates to containers and more particularly to novel cardboard containers .or boxes having on one or more walls or faces of the container, an easily detachable or removable portion of such wall without destroying the container.

Manufacturers and distributors of articles, such as breakfast foods, want to encourage the purchase of their products and, therefore, desire to offer an added incentive to the purchaser or user of the product in order to increase their sales, especially among younger persons. If the container of the product could offer the user pictures of athletes in different sports, motion picture stars, singers, ancient automobiles and other items of interest, without additional cost to the consumer, so that the user may collect such pictures by easy removal from the container without destroying the container, such manufacturer or distributor could substantially increase the sale of their goods.

In the past, before a child could remove the picture from the cereal box, he had to consume the contents so that he could remove the picture. If the goods is a food item, it is important that the container is not destroyed or materially mutilated since the goods may spoil by exposure if the contents have not been completely used.

I have, therefore, provided a container with a removable section or portion which may be easily disengaged and removed from a double or backing wall of the container so that the backing wall remains intact and retains the usefulness of the container or box.

For a fuller understanding of the nature and objects of the invention, reference is had to the following detailed description in connection with the accompanying drawings, in which:

FIG. 1 is a plan view showing the inside of a die-cut cardboard blank of a container or box showing fold and crease lines, flaps and a perforated removable portion or section which may be printed with a picture or design;

FIG. 2 is a perspective view of a container showing a removable portion being peeled off the Wide side of a container With a part of the side and backing wall broken away;

FIG. 3 is a cross-sectional view taken along line 3-3 of FIG. 2;

FIG. 4 is a perspective view of a modified container showing a removable portion being peeled oif the narrow side of the container.

Referring to FIGS. 1 to 4, inclusive, of the drawing, numeral represents a die-cut cardboard blank of a container for illustrative purposes, said blank comprising five panels 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15. For illustrative purposes, panels 12 and 14 are shown as narrow panels and panels 11, 13, and 15 as wider panels. Each of the panels 11 to 14, inclusive, has flaps at their opposite ends, designated as 17 to 24, inclusive. Panel 15 has an elongating flap 16 at its outer edge which is used for gluing to panel 12 when the box is formed. Panel 11 is designated as the outer front panel and is provided with a removable portion 25 defined by a perforated tear outline 26 on three sides, the fourth side being the edge 27. The panels 11 to 15, inclusive, are divided by five crease lines 28, 29, 30, 31 and 32. The blank may be printed, then stripped and cut and at the time the blank 10 is cut, the crease lines and tear lines are made simultaneously.

"ice

The blank 10 of FIG. 1 is shown in the drawing with the unfinished side up, the opposite side being of a finished surface and imprinted with any desirable lettering and pictures, either black and white, colored or both.

Glue is applied by well-known means simultaneously to the inside surfaces of flaps 17, 19, 21 and 23, as indicated by the speckled shading. The glue may be in spots or striped as shown sufficient to properly hold the box together. Glue is also applied to the elongated flap 16 on the side opposite that shown in FIG. 1, or a line of glue 34 is applied to panel 12 adjacent panel 11 to adhere flap 16 thereto. To insure that the outer edge of removable portion 25 remains in close contact with panel 15, it is advisable in many instances to place several spots of glue 33 adjacent the outer edge of removable portion 25, as shown, or glue may be applied to the back of panel 15 at gluing portions 33, 34 and 35.

A line of glue 35, 35 is preferably also applied to the inside of panel 11 adjacent and outside of each of the parallel perforated tear lines 26 for the purpose as hercinaf-ter described, although glue lines 36, 36 may be sufficient to hold the panels 11 and 15 together.

Wherever glue is specified or mentioned, it is to be understood that the width of the glue line may be varied or a line of spots may be used in place of an unbroken surface or line of glue.

The box or container is set up in a manner well-known in the box art, preferably by first adhering flap 16 along glue line 34 on panel 12. Then panel 11, with removable portion 25, is adhered to the reverse side of panel I 15 and which becomes a backing wall for the outer front panel along glue lines 35, 35, spots 33 and the glue lines 36, 36 at right angles to glue lines 35, 35 so that edge 27 is flush with side 14. The narrow flaps 18, 20, 22 and 24 are folded inwardly and then the longer flaps 17, 19, 21 and 23 are folded over one another and adhered to the narrow flaps 18, 20, 22, 24 and the underlying longer flaps 19, 23. The tongue 37 can interlock with slit 38 after the box has been opened and it is desired to keep the box closed by overlapping flap 21 upon flap 23. The panel 13 serves as the rear Wall of the container and the panels 12 and 14 serve as the first and second side walls of the container. The fiaps 19 and 23 serve as the end walls of the container, in cooperation with the other flaps along the long edges of the blank. In the manufacture of the blanks from a large web, there need be no waste material between the blanks occasioned by the existence of the tongues 37 since corresponding recesses such as 37" may be left in the adjoining flap 17.

Alternately, glue may be applied to the reverse or finished side of panel 15 as indicated in FIG. 1 by numerals 33, 34' and '35. The latter glue lines represented by the primed numerals may or may not be used depending on the type of boX, the amount of adhesion required and the customers specification.

Removable portion 25 may have printed on its outside surface, a picture of a baseball player, singer, actor, actress or other well-known popular person, or possibly a design, verse or anything that one may desire to collect. Portion 25 may be readily removed by inserting a knife blade between edge 27 and panel 15 and pry up edge 27 and tear along the perforated tear lines 26. Since there is positive and firm adhesion between panel 15 and the portions outside of tear lines 26, it is not difficult to pry up panel 25 since the tiny glue spots 33 offer little resistance. In fact, in many types of containers the glue spots 33 may be omitted and the panel 25 would still lie against panel 15 and be firmly held by glue lines 35, 35 so that it would not require a knife blade to pry up edge 27 and remove portion 25. The removal of portion 3 V 25 does not destroythebox since panel 15 behind panel 11 and portion 25 still provides a completewall for the container. 7

FIG. 4 shows a modified container which is very much like the container of FIGS. 1 to 3, inclusive, except-that the removable-panel 25 is on the narrow side instead of the wide side of the box.

. While the box or container shown is in-the form of a breakfast cereal box generally used, it is to be understood that any container proportions may be used in place of the ones shown and described.

What is claimed is:

1. A blank for a multi-walled container comprising an outer front panel, a first side wall, a rear wall, a second side wall, a backing wall, and an elongated flap all integrally connected in series along crease lines, the outer front panel, rear Walland backing wall being of the same width and height; flaps on each of the front panel, first side wall, rear wall, and second side wall and adhesive means on the flaps of the front panel, rear wall, and f s 4 7 said front panel being provided with parallel perforations across the full width thereof, a perforation connecting said parallel perforations toform a removable coupon, and a glue line adjacent to and surrounding'the perforations whereby on' assembly to form a container the backing wall and front panel are adheredalong the glue lines surrounding the perforations. 1

2. A blank as in claim 1 further comprisinga tongue on a flap of the front panel and a slit in the flap of the rear wall.
