Application time 27, 1935, Serial No. 28,634_
2 Claims.
This invention relates to improvements in lunch
kits, being particularly directed to the construc
tion thereof for properly supporting av thermos
bottle in the cover.
'
(Cl. 206-4)
scriptionwill be given of the constructional de
tails of the body and cover portionsof the device,
the same‘being well known.
7 7
The support member l4 comprises a flat strip
of metal having a slot I5 at one end, whereby 5
said support member may be mounted in the eye
I 6 of the-lug l1 fastened to one of the side walls
The. object of this
of the cover.

I8 is in its normal position; as shown in ‘Fig. 1 t
and in full lines in Fig. 2;-the support member“
being disposed in horizontal relationship directly
below the thermos bottle to ?rmly support the
same.
~.

. As shown in the dotted lines in Fig. 2 and the
" . full lines in’
.> port
Fig. 3, in order to unlatch the sup
‘
angular displacement thereof
about the horizontal axis, as shown in dotted
lines in Fig. 3, the long arm 19 of the ear I8 is 25
pressed towards the wall of the cover, as shown
in dotted lines in Fig. 2, whereupon the end 2|
ment of the latch element.
These and other advantages, capabilities and
of the support member passes out of the aper
ture 20 of the long arm I9 and moves in the di
rection of the arrow to the dotted line position 30
features of the invention will appear from the
subjoined detailed description of one speci?c em-v
bodiment thereof illustrated in the accompany
ing drawing, in which
’
Fig. 1 is a perspective view partly broken away
of a lunch kit mbodying the invention.
from the dotted line position thereof, shown in
Fig. 3, while the long arm l9 of the ear I8 is
pressed against the wall of the cover until the
end 2| of the support member
tie in section supported thereon.
Fig. 3 is a detailed perspective side elevation in
section of the latching mechanism.
Fig. 4 is a perspective view, partly broken
' away, embodying
a modi?ed form of latch.
Referring to- the reference characters in the
drawing, numeral It represents a lunch kit hav
ing a body portion 52, and a cover ll campanu
late in cross-section, in which cover there is
adapted to be disposed a cylindrical object 13,
such as a thermos bottle, as shown in Fig. 2 of the
drawing.
50
Since the essence of this invention is in the
support member I4 for maintaining the thermos
bottle or cylindrical object in position, no de

oi‘ the
2
ure, causing the free end thereof by contacting
of the long arm to press the long
I the surface
arm against the side wall until the free end of
the support member is opposite the slot 20 of
the long arm, at which point the free end of the
invention as set forth in the appended
claims.
I claim: 7
_
1. A lunch box comprising a body and a cover
support
member
long arm, being resilient, and the pressure there
hinged to the same, a plurality of ears formed
at the lower portion of the respective sides of said
cover; a support extending across the space be
tween the sides of the cover and pivotally mount
ed on one of said ears for displacement about
a horizontal axis, and said other ear being re
silient and mounted at one of its ends to the
Fig. 4, the latch ’ side wall, said ear having an aperture inter
10 member in proper position. '
In the modi?cation shown in
element is in the form of a resilient concavely mediate of its ends, into which the free end of
bowed strip 22 fastened at one end 23 as by said support may pass, such free end of said
riveting and having a slot 24 for receiving the support, upon movement, being adapted to con
reduced end 2| of the support member M. The tact with and displace said last named ear su?r
15 free end 25 of said strip 22 is ?at, so as to ciently to permit said free end of said support
on being released, moves to the full line posi
tion shown in Figs. 1 and 2 to lock the support
20
permit ready displacement of the reduced end
to enter into said aperture, thereby to interlock
2| of the support member into and out of the
slot 24, as shown in the‘full and dotted lines
with the support and ear.
2. A lunch box comprising a body and a cover
hinged to the same, a plurality of ears formed
at the lower portion of the respective sides or
said cover; a support extending across the space
position respectively of the bowed strip and sup
port in Fig. 4.
>
As shown in Figures 1 and '2, the front wall
l2’ of the base I2 is in the nature of the con
struction disposed inwardly of the wall II’ of the
25
cover ||; so that it serves as a stop for the free
end IQ of the rear 18, in the event that the same
should be displaced‘ accidentally to the dotted
line position shown in Figure 2 when the lunch
kit is closed; by virture of the function of wall
30 I2’ as the stop for the free end of the ear l8
the free end 20 of the support M cannot, when
the lunch kit is closed, be displaced from the
aperture 2| in which it is locked. Similarly, in
the construction shown in Figure 4, the free end
35 25 or the car 23 will be caused to abut stop
l2’ in the event of accidental displacement, there
by preventing release of free end 2| of the sup
port Hi from slot 24 of the ear.
It is obvious that various changes and modi
40 ?cations may be made to the details of construc
tion without departing from the general spirit
between the sides of the cover and pivotally
mounted on one of said ears for displacement
about a horizontal axis, and said other ear being
resilient and mounted at one of its ends to the
side wall, said ear having an aperture interme
diate of its ends, into which the free end of said
support may pass, such free end of said support, "
upon movement, being adapted to contact with
and displace said last named ear sufficiently to
permit said free end of said support to enter into
said aperture, thereby to interlock with the sup
port and ear, the wall of the body adjacent the
wall of the cover carrying said resilient ear serv
ing as a stop for the free end of said ear to pre
vent displacement thereof su?'lciently to permit
accidental release of the free end of said sup
port member from the aperture in the ear when
the lunch kit is closed.
