cally, as viewed in FIG. 1.

I 3,227,266 Patented Jan. 4, 1966 FIG. 9 is an enlarged fragmentary cross sectional view as seen from line 99 of FIG. 8.

- In detail the blank of FIG. 1 is a planar sheet generally designated 1, preferably die cut from double-faced corrugated fiberboard, having the corrugations extending verti- Said blank is formed with three parallel, horizontally extending, spaced folding creases 2, 3, 4 spaced below the upper edge 5 of the blank 1, and a pair of parallel, vertical, horizontally spaced vertical folding creases 6, 7 extend across the terminating ends-of creases 2, 3 from edge 4. These creases 2, 3,

7, 6 and edge 5 define the outlines of a pair of horizontally extending rectangular panels or walls 8, 9, the former being along edge 5.

At the opposite ends of the panel 8 outwardly of creases 6, 7 are outward, rectangular continuations or panels 10, 11 of panel 8, and rectangular continuations or panels 12, 13 are outwardly of the ends of panel 9. The latter are preferably slightly shorter than panels 10, 11, and each of these panels 10-13 terminate in outer free edges, while horizontal cuts 14 in opposite outward continuation of crease 2 separate the panels 10, 12 and 11, 13 at corresponding ends of walls 8, 9 from each other. The free outer end edge 15 of end panel 13 may be formed with a relatively shallow arcuate cut 16 at a point intermediate the ends of edge 15, and a corresponding arcuate out also designated 16 is along the free outer edge of panel 12. In the completed shipping carton or container, when folded to enclose the contents, the panel 9 will be the top wall, the panel 8 the front wall, and panels 10, 12 will fold one over the other to form end closure flaps at one end of the package, with the panel 12 outermost, while panels 11, 13 will similarly fold one over the other at the other end of the package to form end closure flaps with panel 13 outermost. I

The folding crease 3, on the other hand, also definesa line of slits to provide a line of weakness for severing the panels 8-13 as a unit from the remainder of the package when the package is opened to provide a display case or package. a

. Referring to the remainder of the blank below panel 8-13 (FIG. 1) a pair of vertical, parallel horizontally spaced foldingcreases 18, 19 are almost in alignment, downwardly, with folding creases 6, 7 but are slightly closer together, and are equally spaced inwardly, or toward each other relative to creases 6, 7, and these creases 18, 19 together with creases 3, 4 define the outline of a rectangular panel 20 that is substantially similar to panel 9, and will form the rear wall of the display package and shipping container when the blank is fully folded,

while the panel 8 will form the front wall of the shipping containeigin opposed relation to panel 20.

Adjoining creases 18, 19 and oppositely outwardly thereof are generally right angle triangular portions 21, 22, the crease 4 continuing outwardly past the creases 18, 19 as at 24 to define one side of each right angle, while thecreases 18, 19 respectively define the other side. The remaining outlines ofthe portions 21, 22 are defined by free end edges 25, 26 that extend from the ends of the folding crease 3-t0 points equally spaced from and above the outer ends of creases 24. A relatively short free end edge 27 parallel with crease'18 extends from the outer end of edge 25 to the outer end of the adjacent crease 24, while a folding crease 28 parallel with and of the same length as edge 27 extends between the outer end of edge 26 and the other end of the crease 24 that is adjacent to the latter.

Below the crease 4 and respectively below the portions 21, 20, 22 are portions 29, 30, 31, and when the shipping container and display package 'are set up these portions will form three of the four bottom closure flaps.

The outer free edges 32, 33, 34 of the portions 29-31 are parallel with crease 4 and are in alignment with each other and the portions 29, 31 are the end portions adjoining and extending the full length of creases 24 respectively, while portion is the intermediate portion and extends the length of crease 4.

The adjacent edges 37 of the pair of end portions 29, 31 extend in continuation of creases 18, 19 to the outer edges 32, 34 thereof, while the outer edges 39, of the pair of portions 29, 31 that are opposite to edges 37 extend slantingly and convergently outwardly relative to each other from the end edge 27 of portion 21 and the crease 28. These slanted edges 39, 40 terminate at their outer ends slightly short of the end edges 32, 34 at points well spaced from the edges 37 and from said points the edges continue at right angles to edges 32, 34 and to said edges.

The opposite end edges 41 of the central portion 30 extend convergently outwardly relative to each other from the ends of crease 4, to points equally spaced from end edge 33 and then they continue at 42 outwardly to edge 33 thus defining the ends of a horizontally elongated tab 44, the outer edge of which is the edge 33 while its end edges are the short edges 42.

At this point it is seen that the only remaining portion of the blank is the portion at the right end thereof, as seen in FIG. 1, and said portion is connected with the previously described part of the blank along crease line 28 only. This remaining portion is in continuation of the right hand side of the blank of FIG. 1 and the creases 4, 24 continue across this remainder as at '45 to divide said remaining portion into a rectangular panel 46 that is of the same horizontal length as panel 20, and its lower free edge 47 is substantially in alignment with edges 32, 33, 34 of the bottom folding flaps 29-31.

Spaced above the folding crease is a folding crease 48 that is parallel with crease 45 and that extends from the upper end of the short folding crease 28, normal thereto, to define the upper edge of a narrow rectangular panel 49. This panel 49 projects outwardly of the blank at the end thereof opposite to the folding crease 28 to provide a rectangular tab 50.

Adjacent to and parallel with crease 48 but spaced thereabove approximately the thickness of the blank is a folding crease 52 and spaced from crease 52 a distance approximately equal to the distance between creases 45, 52 is another folding crease 53, also parallel with crease 48. These creases 52, 53 define two opposite edges of a narrow panel 56 similar in'width to panel 49.

The end free edges 54, '55 of'the'panel 46 are at right angles to edge 47 and a crease 57 corresponding to crease 28 extends across tab in alignment with the free edge of panel 46.

Above the folding creases 28 and 57 the free end edges 54, 55 continue as 54' and 55, the former terminating at about the corner of panel 13, and at the lower end of free edge 15 of said panel, and continuing to a point approximately opposite to the arcuate cut 16 in panel 13. The lower edges of the panels 12, 13 as seen in FIG. 1 are free and generally opposite to the diagonally extending edges 25, 26 of panels 21, 22, and they are also in longitudinal alignment with perforated crease 3. Also panel 13 extends slightly past the upper end of free edge 54' and slightly into a substantially rectangular panel 58 that adjoins the folding crease 53. The upper edge of this panel 58 is defined by a cut 59 that extends inwardly toward panel 13 from the upper end of edge 55 about half the horizontal length of panel '58, and a folding crease 60 continues parallel with cut 59 to the arcuate cut 16 in panel 13, but slightly offset toward crease 53. This panel 58 is about the same dimension as panel 9, since, in the folded container, it forms the bottom of the container in opposed relation to the panel 9.

Above the crease 60 and adjoining it is a rectangular panel 61-that extends away from panels 11, 13 across the panel 58 a distance substantially equal to one half the length of panel 20, or panels 8, 9 and a folding crease 62 extends from the juncture between crease 60 and edge 59 to the upper free edge 63, which edge 63 is in continuation of the upper free edge of panel 61. The edge of panel 61 opposite to folding crease 62 is preferably tacked to panel 11 by a small frangible connection 57 of the blank, which functions to hold the panels 11, 61 in a folding operation to be described, but which is readily broken. The edges 59, 63 and folding crease 62 define three of the edges of a rectangular panel 64 that is above panel 58 and to the right of panel 61. This panel 64 projects beyond the free edge 55 of panel 58 and terminates in a free edge 65 that has a jog in it to provide a slight shoulder 66 at a point intermediate the ends of said edge 65. The upper portion of the panel 64 above the shoulder is thus slightly wider than the portion therebelow.

Referring back to the narrow panel 56 that is between folding creases 48 and 53, midway between the ends of this panel 56 a tab 68 is cut out, one end of said tab being integral with the panel 49, and the folding crease .58 is interrupted by said tab, so that the latter will not fold over when the panel 56 is folded over along crease lines 48, 52 as will later be explained.

The end of tab 68 opposite to the end thereof that connects with panel 49 is substantially semicircular in outline, and a shortslot 69 extends from the arcuate outer end of said tab 68 to the crease 53.

In the display package that is formed, the panel 64 will form a partition and this slot 69 will receive one end of the partition to hold it in a position extending across the container.

In operation the first step in forming the container is to fold the blank of FIG. 1 on itself (FIG. 2) along folding crease 18 and folding crease 28 so that the narrow end portion of panel 21 overlies the tab 50, and the latter is glued or otherwise suitably secured to said narrow end portion of panel 21.

In this condition, the blanks may be stored or shipped flat, since from this point on the container may be set up.

The second step in forming the container is to swing the panels 46, 49, 56, 58, 61, 64 as a unit, away from the portion of the blank over which said panels are disposed, along crease 28 and connection 57, and creases 7 and 19, so that the panels 46, 49, 56, 58, 61, 64 will be in spaced opposed relation to panels 8, 9, 20 and 30. The panels 12, 13 will remain planar with panel 9, and the panels 21, 29 will be in spaced opposed relation to panels 22, 31 and at right angles to the panel 20.

When this is done the blank may be inverted so that the bottom folding flaps 29, 30, 31 and 46 will be uppermost (FIG. 6) and then, in succession, flaps 46, 29, 31 and 30 are folded horizontally to lapping relation and the tab 44 so sprung past the free outer edge of flap 46 into the container to lock the bottom flaps together (FIG. 7).

The bottom flaps having been locked in position, the container is again positioned upright and the tack 57 may be broken so that the panels 46, 49, 56, 58, 61 and 64 may be folded independently of the remaining panels. When this is done the panel 56 is folded into the container along creases 48, 52 so as to lie against the inner side of panel 49, and in this position the panel 58 will extend horizontally over and against the bottom flaps 29, 30, 31 and 46 and to the rear panel 20 to form the inner smooth bottom of the container.

At this point it is noted that the tab 68 will remain upright, but slot 69 will extend to the panel 58. The panel 64 is then swung over the bottom panel 58 to a position perpendicular to the wall 20 and the lower portion of the outer free edge of panel 64 will snap into slot 60, while the tab will extend to the shoulder 66 in panel 64 so the outer surface of tab 68 and the free edge of panel 64 above said tab will be generally in the same vertical plane (FIG. 5). It will be noted that panel 61 is fiat against panel 20 when the partition panel 64 is swung over the panel 58.

After the container istformed to this point, it may be filled with objects such, for example, as bottles 70, indicated in dotted line in FIG. 4, at the near side of partition 64; j v i t To close the container, the panel 9 isfolded over to form the upper wall of the container along the perforated crease 13, and panel 8 is then folded along crease 2 to form thetforwarcl or front .wallof the container. The end fiapsTO, 11 are then folded along creases 6, 7 to form innert end walls, and flaps 12, 13 are folded down over the innerend walls to form the outer end walls..,. This will bring the arcuate cuts 16 lowermost and'intermediate the .ends of the free end edges of the flaps 12, 13. Tape 71 ,.3) or any other suitable readily removable means tape secure the outerf'end flaps or walls 10, 11 i to the bottom of the container, which tape may extend across the lower foldingtflaps at the juncture between them, to securely hold the container sealed against undesirable since the container must protect the containres :70which are relatively fragile, and the display carton when handled at the stores must be strong and capable of being carried and handled with a minimum of flexing and distortion.
