ATTACHMENT FOR I BEER-CASES.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Sept. 13, 1910.
Application filed July 26. 1907. Serial No. 385,746.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, GUSTAV C. Kumxow, a
.u-itizen of the United States, residing at Frein light bottles,
merit, in the county of Dodge and State of." )ebraska, have invented certain new and ment intended as an inside hand-hold cover,
that is a cover for excluding light, cold and damp 'trom the openings in the heads or ends oflthe-case usually provided to afford a hold for the hands in liftin or handling the case. The chief purpose of such attachment ,1 is to protect bottled liquids more'especially bottled beer,
I from the deteriorating influence 'of light. As well known, all beer packaged when exposed to light, even {through the hand-holes in the heads or ends of; the case, will invariably deteriorate -in taste and flavor, become moreor less cloudy,
. reta and acquire a noxious odor known among brewers as isk'unky. Since light bottles have come 'into general use, much beer is spoiled in this manner,. in transportation or 's ipsing as well as-whllekepton hand by ers and consumers, To avoid this trouble, it has. been customary, when shipping beer in light bottles, to wrap the bottles ,1 in" colored tissue-paper or in paste board" ser wrappers, which, of course,- incurs extra trouble and expense for each and every shipment. Special constructions of ship'- I mg-casesihave also been devised with hand-' oles" jadeorarranged to excludethe light, but such constmctions, besides involving an objectionable departure from the stan ard 915 bee r-cases universally the trade have also been more expensive and heavier than the regular beer-cases. To 1n- I crease-the costof the cases is, wholly impracticable.
of course,
pers,,who pay about fifty or sixty cents for their beer-cases, charge the same-to the "re-' tailer or consignee, and credit or refund the v,cost' upon of the cases. I But where used and demanded'by Brewers and ship- B the lidor cover thereof,'and
beer is shipped to distant points, frequently the cases are not returned on account of freight or express charges; for which reason, among others, any increase in the cost of the cases would meet the opposition of the trade. It'is likewise impracticable to materially increase the weight of he cases, not
only because of theobjection to handling KERKOW ADMINISTRATRIX OF SAID heavier cases, but also on account of increased express charges which would amount to a considerable aggregate for a large cons1 mnent. Aside from special constructions of cases, which have not found favor and have not come lnto general use, the only mode of excluding lightfrom the handholes, so far as l am aware, has been by afiixing flat boards or plates on the insides of the cases over the hand-holes; but such contrivances are impracticable and almost uselessfor beer-cases, since they allow only the ti s ofthe fingers to beinserted in the handoles to lift a weight from 100 to 150 pounds, which is the weight of a full ship ping-case for beer.
In'view of the foregoing, the object of my invention is to provide a very simple, cheap and practicable attachment, which can be expense, and which can e readily applied as an inslde hand-hole cover to the standard or ordinary beer-cases now in umversal use,
in'such manner as to exclude the li ht while "yetafi'ording an ample'hold for t e hands to lift the heavy cases. I
In the accompanying drawings, which are tobe ,-.t:aken.as a part of this specification;
Figure 1 is a vertical section through the head or end'portion of an ordinary wooden vmadetand furnished in uantities at slight shipping-case for beer, showing my improved attachment or hand-hole cover applied thereto. Fig. 2 is an inside view of a fragment of the head of the shippingv case, with the attachment covering the hen hole thereof, a portion of said attachment beingbroken away to disclose the hand-hole I whic is also indicated in'part by dotted lines. Fig. 3 is a perspective viewfof the ,attachment.

of the :heads .or. ends of the shi D (leiiotesmy improved attachment or hand-hole cover, which as shown comprises a dish-like plate of concavo-convex .forni having a marginal flange d, saidattachinent being applied with its hollow or concave side facing the hand-hole, C,'W1thits marginal fianged affixed to the inner face 0 1 the head "A by any suitable means, as by tacking or nailing it thereto; for which purpose the 'said 'fiange (Z is shown provided with aperturestl to receive the fastening tacks or nails. t V
The attachment Iis'so applied as to pro- .vide a' hollow chambered cover behind and above the hand-hole, so as-to permit the hand 'to enter and'obtain the usual firm grip in the hand-hole, the same as it the cover were not attached,- as shown n Fig. 1; said cover-accommodating the knuckles and fillgers inside thecase. In other words, when the cover D is affixed on the inside of the v marginal flange d surrounds the bottom andcase, the bottom and side portions of its side edges of the handhole, while the upper portion, of the cover extends to or toward the top of the case and is aflixed at a distance above the hand-hole. The depth of the cover is sufficient to accommodate the knuckles and lingers when the hand is gripping thefhand-hold', and this without having to're'cess the inner face or otherwise destroy the integrity of the wall of the case.
- The cover is not, however, of a depth to inbott e cases, whichiare .latelycoming into use. When applied to" such steel or meta-l1 sheet-metal,
stamped or formed from papler-mach or 1 ter fere with the bottles, which are indicated 35 tion, of the hand-holes places the cover above the shoulders of the bottles, so that the cover-comes besides the bottle-necks.-
in Fig.1 by the letter E. The usual loca- This attachment is desirably made of metal, preferably stamped from sheet-metal,
as; jgalvanizedflsheetiron or other suitable It may also be pressed,
other suitable material. The device is also ada tedfor attachment to steel or metal vz'lses. the nnirginal fiaiiged may bd riveted to the heads or ends oi the case.
it will be seen that the attachment can .be manufactured cheaply, as by stamping Ltroin sheet-metal and easily atlixed to the cases, by tacking to ordinary wooden cases or riveting to steel or metal cases, so that neither the cost her the weight of the cases are increased by the attachment ex cept in an insignificant degree. The device is strongand durable, and will out-last the life of the ordinary wooden cases t-hein selves; so that when the cases become worn out or broken the attachment may be transferred to other cases if desired, though the cheapness oi the attaeiinjient would. obviate any need'ot considering its further use. In
addition he excluding: light, while yet allow-' in the usual facilitr for enterin the hand and lifting the case, the attachment also rectangulan concavoeonvex dishdike cover composed of sheet material and attached to the inner face of the case, said cover being disposed 'Wi'tll its concavity facing and wholly inclosing the hand-hole, and the upper edge of the cover being disposed .snfticie'ntly above the upper margin of the hand-hole to accommodate and protect the fingers of the hand when grasping the case.
while at the same iiiliie shielding the contents of the box from the exterior.
In testimony whereof I atlix ily-signature, in presence of two witnesses.
