REEL CLOSURE Filed March 26. 1968 2 Sheets-Sheet 1 THOMAS 5. KULK/J ATTORNEYS 1''. S. KULKA REEL CLOSURE Aug. 25, 1970 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Filed March 26, 1968 ATTORNEYS Stas Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE A reel closure comprising a one-piece hollow plastic band for closing the area between the flanges of a tape reel thereby protecting the tape or film wound on the reel. The band is a plastic extrusion having wall formations of relatively thin cross-section, with the inner wall of the closure disposed between the reel fianges accommodating the decrease in diameter of such inner wall upon the ap plication of the closure to the reel. A latching member is provided, one end of which is permanently attached to the band at one end thereof and the opposite end constructed for temporary latching with the free end of said band. A modified latching member is provided for use where tape diameters prohibit the use of a hollow reel closure.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION The present invention relates as indicated to a reel closure and more particularly to a protective reel band adapted to enclose the space between the side flanges of a reel thereby protecting the tape or film wound on the reel from dust, dirt and the like.

Reel closures of the type here concerned have been in use for a rather long period of time and for the purpose above indicated. However, the use of tapes in the audio, video and computer fields has increased substantially to the point where storage of such reels presents a problem. Inasmuch as it may be desired to store tapes for relatively long periods of time between use, it is desirable and occasionally necessary that the protective closure means be associated with the reel to prevent the entrance of dirt, dust and other deleterious material into direct contact with the tape or film to avoid damaging the same.

Although essentially any type closure that serves to fully occupy the space between the flanges outwardly of the tape or film will serve to accomplish the above-noted purpose, other factors enter in which make certain types of reel closures more practical to use than others. Perhaps the most important factor is economic, with the cost of the reel closures being relatively high where a large number of reels are required to be stored.

A further consideration is one of function, that is, the ease in which the reel closure can be applied to or removed from the reel flanges, and the degree to which the closure fulfills its intended objective of preventing entrance of deleterious material into the area inwardly of the closure.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION It is accordingly an object of the present invention to provide a protective reel closure than can be manufactured at relatively low cost.

A further object of the present invention is to provide a protective reel closure that can be simply and quickly applied to or removed from the reel flanges. More specifically, the present invention comprises a two-part assembly including an elongated, one-piece reel band and a locking or latching member. The latching member and one end of the band are constructed and arranged to form a substantially permanent connection, and the opposite end of the band and the latching member are designed to provide temporary latching of the band on the reel 3,525,427 Patented Aug. 25, 1970 flanges when the free end of the band is moved into predetermined aligned engagement with the opposite end of the latching member.

In accordance with a further aspect of the invention, an object of the invention is to provide a modified latching member adapted to be permanently connected to one end of the band and temporarily latched to the other, with such modified latching member finding advantageous use where the diameter of the tape prohibits use of the hollow reel band.

These and other objects of the invention will become apparent as the following description proceeds.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION Referring now in more detail to the drawing, wherein like parts are indicated by like reference numerals, and initially to the form of the invention illustrated in FIGS. 1-5, a reel band generally indicated at 10 and a latching member generally indicated at 12, both constructed in accordance with the invention, are cooperatively engaged in a manner to be presently described so as to enclose the area between the side flanges 14 and 16 of a reel generally indicated at 18. The reel 18 is per se conventional and forms no part of the present improvements, with the same having tape or film 20 wound thereon in the usual manner, with the outer periphery of the tape 20 terminating radially inwardly of the peripheral edges of the side flanges 14 and 1 6.

The cross section of the band 10 throughout the length thereof is best shown in FIGS. 2 and 3. The band thus comprises a ridge or outer wall 22 and an inner wall 24 spaced from wall 22 by continuous web flanges 26 and 28. The walls 22 and 24 and flanges 26 and 28 thus define a continuous inner opening 30 which traverses the length of the band.

The band 10 further comprises lateral flanges 32 and 34 which form lateral extensions of and are in the same plane as the outer wall 22. When the reel band 10 is applied to the side flanges 14 and 16 of the reel, the flanges 32 and 34 overlie the periphery of the reel flanges 14 and 16 as shown in FIGS. 2 and 3. In addition, the width of the inner wall 24 of the reel band, as defined by the web flanges 26 and 28, is such as to be snugly received between the inner faces of the side flanges 14 and 16 of the reel so as to guard against entry of dust, dirt and the like into the area between the inner wall 24 and the tape 20.

The reel band 10 is preferably extruded from a suitable plastic material, for example, polyethylene or polypropylene. In the extrusion process, the lateral flanges 32 and 34, which bear against the reel flanges, are made somewhat thicker than the walls 22 and 24. The inner wall 24 inherently accommodates contraction of such inner wall when the band is applied to the reel flanges 14 and 16.

The latching member 12 is preferably made of a harder and denser plastic material and is dimensioned so as to be received within the longitudinal opening 30 formed in the reel band. The latching member 12 includes opposite end sections 40 and 42, the cross sections of which are readily visible in FIGS. 2 and 3, respectively. Thus, the end 40 which is designed for permanent attachment to the reel band, comprises a continuous fiat top wall 44, side walls 46 and 48, and end wall 50. The end section 40 further includes a central longitudinally extending rib 52 to rigidify the end section in the area between the side walls.

Attached to the top wall 44 of the end section 40 is a disc or button 54 which is adapted to extend upwardly through an opening 56 formed therefor in the adjoining end section of the reel band 10, with FIG. 3 of the drawing showing the button 54 projecting through such opening to effectively permanently connect the latching member 12 to such end of the reel band.-

The opposite end 42 of the latching member is shown in cross-section in FIG. 4 and comprises side walls 60 and 62, end wall 64, FIG. 1, and a top wall 66. As can be seen in FIG. 5, the latter is formed with a longitudinally extending central opening 68, the purpose of which will be presently made apparent.

A resilient latching arm generally indicated at 70 is secured in cantilever fashion to the center section of the latching member 12, with the free end of such latching arm extending in the opening 68 toward the end wall 64 of the end section 42, with the side walls of the latching arm 70 being suitably spaced from the edges of the side walls 60 and 62 to permit actuation of the latching arm 70 without interference.

A button 72 similar to the button 54 is attached to the upper surface of the latching arm 70 generally intermediate the length thereof, with the free end 74 of the reel band being formed with a complemental opening 76 to receive the button 72 when the reel band is applied to the flanges of the reel 18.

In the form shown, the latching member 12 is provided with a hook 80 which permits the reel 18 to be conveniently suspended from a suitable support thereby providing convenient storage of the tape.

The latching member 12, including the buttons 54 and 72, and the hook 80, are preferably made from a relatively hard, suitable plastic material, for example, high density polyethylene or the like.

The latching member 12 is permanently attached to the end 82 of the reel band 10 by inserting the leading end of the end section 40 of the latching member into the opening 30, and moving the latching member 12 into such opening until the button 54 engages the end of the band. The outer wall 22 of the band, being of relatively thin cross-section, is then moved radially outwardly until the button reclears the wall to permit continued movement of the latching member into the opening 30. The inherent resilience of the plastic material will cause the outer wall 22 to move toward, and relatively snugly receive, the top wall 44 of the end section 40. When the button 54 reaches the opening 56, the button 54 will project upwardly through such opening, with the resiliency of the reel band material effectively retaining the button 54 in latched position in the opening 56 thereby substantially permanently connecting the end 40 of the latching member to the reel band. As shown, the button 54* and opening 56 are aligned when the end wall of the reel band engages the hook -80. However, it will be understood that other stop or abutment means could be provided to effect the desired alignment.

When it is desired to apply the reel band to the flanges 14 and 16 of the reel 18, the inner wall 24- of the band is positioned between the inner faces of the side flanges 14 and 16 of the reel 18 as above described, with the radially inner faces of the side flanges 32 and 34 tightly engaging the peripheral edges of the side flanges 14 and 16. As the reel 18 is thus enveloped by the reel band, the free end 74 of the reel band is telescoped over the free end 42 of the latching member 12. When the leading edge of the reel band engages button 72, which is resiliently biased upwardly above the plane of the top wall 66, as shown in FIG. 4, the button 72 is manually depressed until the top thereof is positioned below the outer wall 22 of the reel band. The reel band is then moved further on the section 42 of the latching member until the leading edge of the band engages the hook 80, which engagement is simultaneous with the alignment of the button 72 with the opening 76 formed in the outer wall 22 of the reel band. When the button 72 is released, the latching arm 70 inherently springs radially outwardly until the top face of the latching arm resiliently engages the under surface of the outer wall 22 of the band and the button 72 projects through the opening 76. The reel band 10 is thus temporarily latched or locked in place on the reel flanges and the reel 18 can be conveniently stored or otherwise handled until further use.

When it is desired to again use the tape or film wound on the reel 18, it is necessary only to manually depress the button 72 and withdraw the free end 74 of the reel band away from the end section 42 of the latching member 12. When these members have become disengaged, the band 10 can be simply removed from contact with the reel flanges, and the reel 18 is ready for further handling.

In certain circumstances the diameter of the tape on the reel may prevent application of the reel band illustrated in FIGS. 15 to the reel flanges. There is illustrated in FIGS. 6-8 a modified form of latching member adapted to be used with reel bands of a solid nature and of less transverse dimension than the hollow reel band above described.

Referring to FIGS. 68, the modified latching member generally indicated at is adapted to be operatively connected, in the manner presently described, to a reel band generally indicated at 102. The latter is of conventional construction and need not be described in detail.

The latching member 100 comprises upper arms 104 and 106 extending longitudinally from the central section 108. A pair of lower arms 110 and 112 are provided below and spaced from the upper arms 104 and 106, with the arms 104 and 110 thus defining therebetween an elongated opening 114 and the arms 106 and 112 defining an elongated opening 116.

As best seen in FIGS. 7 and 8, the reel band 102 comprises continuous side flanges and 122 and annular ribs 124 and 126. The side flange 120 and rib 124 define an annular slot or groove 128 adapted to receive the reel flange 130, and the side flange 122 and rib 126 similarly define an annular groove 132 for receiving reel flange 134 all in WEllekIlOWIl manner. The reel band further comprises an outer solid wall 136 which functions when the band is applied to the reel flanges to fully close the space between the flanges and 134 and thus protect the tape or film 138.

The reel band 102 is formed with openings 140 and 142 relatively adjacent the ends of the band for receiving buttons or discs 144 and 146, respectively, carried by the latching member 100. Specifically, the button 144 is integrally formed with or attached to the inside of the upper arm 104 and is adapted to extend downwardly through the opening 140 for temporary latching the band, as will be presently described. Button 146 is formed integrally with or is attached to the lower arm 112 and is adapted to extend upwardly through opening 142 formed in the end 148 of the reel band. The upper arm 106, in the region thereof immediately above the button 146, is formed with the recess 150 for reception of the upper portion of the button 146 thereby more securely to lock the reel band to the latching member. As will be apparent, an opening could be formed in the upper arm i106 completely therethrough to receive the button 146 in lieu of the recess 150.

The reel band 102 can be formed of any suitable material, for example, polyethylene or polypropylene, and the latching member 100 can similarly be formed of a plastic material preferably harder and more dense, for example, high density plypropylene or the like. The specific material employed and the thickness thereof will in part be dictated by the desired flexibility in the upper and lower latching arms 104, 106, and 110, 112.

The upper latching arm 104 is formed at the end thereof with an upturned flange 1-52- to facilitate latching and unlatching of the band, and the lower arm 110 is similarly formed with a downturned flange 154 to facilitate entry of the leading free end 156 of the band when the same is latched in place.

The latching member 100 is substantially permanently connected to the end 148 of the reel band in the following manner. The upper and lower latching arms 106 and 112, respectively, are flexed slightly away from each other to receive the leading end 148 of the reel band with such flexing being sufiicient for such leading end to extend over and clear the button 146. Continued movement of the leading end 148 will bring the opening 142 of the reel band into alignment with the button 146 at which time the arms 106 and 112 are released, with the inherent resiliency of the material effecting a snug reception of the leading end 148 of the reel hand between the arms .106 and 112. To enhance the locking condition, the button 146 is shown enlarged and partially received in the recess 150 formed in the upper arm 106. When thus assembled, the end 148 of the reel band is firmly locked to the adjacent end of the latching member.

In the described condition wherein the end 148 is thus locked to the latching member 100, the band can be stored when not in use with a hook 160 being provided for suspending the band if desired.

When the reel band 102 is desired to be applied to the reel flanges 130 and 134, the reel band is applied to the reel flanges as above described until the free end 156 of the reel band is disposed relatively adjacent the free end of the latching member 100. At such time, the upper latching member 104 is flexed upwardly by grasping the flange 152 and the leading end 156 of the reel band inserted into the opening 114 between the arms 104 and 110. The end of the reel band is moved in such opening 114 toward the hook 160 until the opening 140 moves into alignment with the button 144, at which time the flange 152 is released and the button caused to project through the opening 140. The free end 156 is thereupon temporarily latched in place until such time as it is desired to remove the reel band from the reel flanges, which removal operation is initiated by raising the upper arm 104 through a manual grasping of the flange 152 to disalign the button 144 from the opening 140, thereby permitting the end 156 of the band to be withdrawn from the latching member.

Although in the FIG. 6 form the end of the lower arm 110 terminates forwardly of the latching button 144, it will be understood that the arm 110 could be extended as shown in the permanent locking arrangement at the right of FIG. 6 and formed with an opening or recess for partial reception of the button 144. This would serve better to secure the band to the latching member in the temporarily latched condition. It will also be understood that the buttons 144 and 146 could be carried by the arms opposite the same, the reversal of FIG. 6, or could both be carried by the upper or lower latching arms, with the only requirement being that means be provided at one end of the latching member for effecting the temporary latching of the reel band thereto. Likewise, an opening could be formed in the latching arm 106 in lieu of recess 150 for locking the button 146 in place.

It should also be understood that the free end of the reel band, in both the FIGS. l-S and FIGS. 6-8 forms thereof, could be formed with a second opening or groove to permit expansion of the band for removing the band from the reel flanges, without completely disengaging the latching member from the reel band. For example, referring to the FIGS. 68 form of the invention, the free end 156 of the band 102 could be formed with an opening relatively near the tip of such end, similar in size to opening 140, for receiving button 144 when the latter is withdrawn from opening 140 and the band expanded. Such expansion would permit the band to be removed from the reel flanges and 134, while maintaining the reel band and latching member engaged.

It will thus be seen that the objects of the invention have been accomplished. Either form of latching member can be simply and economically manufactured. The substantially permanent connection of one end of the latching member and an adjoining end of the reel band can be quickly effected. The application of the reel band to the side flanges of the reel is similarly effected with little effort, with the free end of the reel band being temporarily latched following manual actuation of the latching arm carried by the latching member.
