PRICE TAG
Alonzo K. Marsh, Summit, N. J., assignor to A.
Kimball Company, New York, N. Y., a corpora
tion of New York
Application March 19, 1937, Serial N0. 131,763
2 Claims. (Cl. 40-25)
This invention relates to price tags of the type paper along said weakened line, as illustrated in
intended to be secured to articles of merchandise
in such manner that they cannot be removed
therefrom without detection.
It is an object of the invention to provide a
tag of this type which shall have improved safe
guards against unauthorized removal, which may
be easily applied to the merchandise, and which
may be easily removed therefrom.
Other objects and advantages of the invention
will appear hereinafter.
A preferred embodiment of the invention se
lected for purposes of illustr-ation is shown in the
accompanying drawing, in which,
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the tag.
Figure 2 is a plan View showing the staples
clinched.
Figures 3 and 4' are plan views showing the
front and back faces of the tag.
Figure 5 is a longitudinal section on the line
20
5-5 of Figure 1.
Figure 6 is a simil-ar section showing the method
of removing the tag.
Referring to the drawing, the tag comprises a
25 body portion I of any convenient size, but usually
of considerable area and length in order to pro
vide adequate space for printing. At one end of
the body portion, the paper or cardboard of
which the tag is formed is folded along fold line 2
30 to provide a flap 3. It is then reversely folded
along fold line 4 to provide iiap 5. Finally it is
folded again in the same direction along fold line
6 to provide end flap 1 which lies between flaps
3 and 5.
End flap 1 is provided with the usual attach
35
ing staple 8 of any suitable construction, and
the ñap 3 is provided with suitable apertures 9
registering with the legs of the staple so that the
staple legs may be passed through the merchan
40 dise to be tagged, then through said apertures,
and clinched on the opposite face of flap 3, thus
securing the tag to the merchandise.
Secured to the body portion I and to the flap 3
in registering positions are two parts I0 and I I of
45 a lock seal device, such, for example, as illus
trated in Laencher Patent No. 1,916,003. As set
forth in said patent the interlocking parts may
be readily snapped together, but once together
cannot be separated without mutilating the seal.
If desired, the seal part I0 may be surrounded
50
by a. line of perforations I2 which weaken the
paper, so that when it is desired to remove the
tag, the body portion I may be lifted to tear the
Figure 6, thus exposing the staple legs for re
moval.
In use, the merchandise is inserted between the
fiaps 3, 5 and 1 as shown, and the staple legs are 5
passed through and clinched. The lock seal is
then snapped into place. It will be observed that
due to the provision of the end flap 1 the portion
of the staple which isattached to flap 1 is com
pletely covered by fiap 5 and no part of it is
available for tampering. The staple legs are
covered by the body portion I and cannot readily
be reached for tampering. 'I‘he tag also has ad
vantages over such forms of tags as are illus
trated in Patents No. 1,054,927 and No. 1,680,459
in which metal eyelets are used to secure the
iiaps together, because the merchandise can be
inserted the full depth of the flaps Without dan
ger of damage from the insertion of the eyelet.
It will be understood that the invention may 20
be variously modified and embodied within the
scope of the subjoined claims.
I claim as my invention:
l. A price tag comprising a body portion and
a Aseries of connected flaps at one end thereof,
the flap adjoining the body portionv being folded
in one direction, the second iiap being folded in
the opposite direction, and the third flap being
folded back to lie between the first and second
flaps, a staple secured to said third flap, said 30
first flap being provided with an aperture regis
tering with said staple so that the legs of said
staple may pass through said first flap and be
clinched on the other side, and means for securing
said body portion to said first flap to thereby
cover said staple legs.
2. A price tag comprising a body portion and
a series of connected flaps at» one end thereof,
the flap adjoining the body portion being folded
in one direction, the second flap being folded in 40
the opposite direction, and the third flap being
folded back to lie between the first and second
flaps, a staple secured to said third iiap, said
first flap being provided with an aperture regis
tering with said staple so that the legs of said
staple may pass through said first flap and be
clinched on the other side, and a lock' seal com
prising two parts, one of which is secured to said
body portion and the other secured to said first
fiap in registering position for securing said body 50
portion to said first flap to thereby cover said
staple legs.
