Abstract

A carrier for a plurality of similar articles such as bottles is formed from a unitary blank of foldable paperboard to provide a carton sleeve having opposed side walls and opposed end walls, the side walls extending over the tops of the articles and being joined to define a top wall. The end walls have indented upper portions maintained in position by gusset elements flanking the inner sides of upper portions of the side walls. A line of weakness extends from each edge of the top panel in convergent directions to intersect at a pull tab in one of the side walls, there by defining a tear panel which when removed exposes the tops of the bottles for easy removal from the carrier.

DRAWINGS FIG. 1 is a plan view of a cut and scored blank for forming an article carrier according to the presentinvention;

FIG. 2 is a perspective view of a completed carton formed from the blank of FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is a bottom view thereof; and

FIG. 4 is a sectional view looking in the direction of the arrows 4-4 of FIG. 2.

Referring to FIG. 1 there is shown a blank for forming an article carrier 10A for enclosing a group of bottles B and having the opening feature according to the present invention. Blank 10 has a first lower enclosure flap 12 connected to a front panel 13 along a fold line 14. An opposing closure flap 16 is connected to a back panel 17 along a continuation of the fold line 14. Closure flap 12 has a glue patch GP thereon, so that closure flap 12 may be placed into overlapping relationship with respect to closure flap 16 to close the bottom of the carton 10A seen in FIG. 2.

The first end panel 18 of carrier 10A has gusset flap elements 19 and 21 extending from the lower end thereof, theseflap elements being capable of being folded upon themselves along an individual score line 20 in each. Gusset fiap elements 19 and 21 are also defined by a continuation of score lines 22 and 23 defining first end panel 18 and a continuation of the score line 14 of front panel 13. Likewise, an opposed end panel 24 has gusset flap elements 26 and 27 foldably upon themselves along an individual score line 28 in each. One pair of such gusset flap elements is defined by the continuation of a score line 29 and by a continuation of the score line 14, while the other pair of such gusset flap elements is defined by a continuation of a fold line 31 and a continuation of the fold line 14.

Carton blank 10 includes a pair of inclined end panels 32 foldable with respect to the first and second end panels 18 and 24 along a fold line 33. Inclined end panels 32 converge towards each other, and each is defined by converging gusset fold lines 34 and by triangular gusset panels 36 also defined by a continuation of the score lines 22, 23,29 and 31 as the case may be.

An underlapping top flap 37 extends from the front panel 13, and is foldable with respect thereto along a score line 35 An overlapping top flap 38 which extends from the back panel 17 is foldable with respect thereto along a continuation of the score line 35.

2 a The overlapping and underlapping top flaps 38 and 37 are glued together in a conventional gluing operation.

The two flaps 37 and 38 are each provided with folddown tabs 39 defined by an essentially semi-circular cut line 40 and a score line 41. When tabs 39 are folded down, they are in register and define a pair of spaced finger holes for the transport of the filled container 10A.

The top panels 37 and 38 may also be provided with converging lines of weakness 42, which extend from each free edge of the top wall as defined by top flap 38,

the line of weakness commencing at the ends of flap 38. 3

These extend into the top portion of panel 17 and terminate at their intersection in a teartab 43. The precise configuration of the line of weakness 42 or the tear tab 43 may be as chosen, but irrespective of the form thereof they define a tear panel 44, which when removed enables the contents of carrier 10A to be removed readily. v

It should be noted that the top panels 37 and 38 are free from attachment from the end panels 18 and 24 so that the contents of the carrier to be readily removed by the tearing at the lines of weakness 42. Moreover,

the top panels 37 and 38 rest upon the tops of the end walls 18 and 24 to thereby provide a carrier which is substantially light tight.
