VAN WINGEN 2,111,376 BOX STRUCTURE Filed Sept. 20, 1937 5 Sheets-Sheet 3 Infl: 2 2,111,376 , stantialiy square ,fiaps`22 in alinement with which and between the same are relatively narrow flaps 23 outwardly beyond the scorings at I5. _ ` With this blank construction the reinforcing flaps `I,I maybe bent inwardly against the inner sides of the ends 5, one overlapping the other as shown in Fig. 4 and the hand hole flaps at 1 bent inwardly through the openings at I3 and stapled in place as previously described. The 10 end structure may be then bent upwardly about the scorings at 4 and the sides IB upwardly about the lower scorings 3, the flaps 20 turned inwardly -toward each other to overlap the ends 5, as shown in Fig. 2, whereupon said flaps 20 and the 15 ends 5 with the reinforcing section II are sta pled together. The flaps 22 are bent at right endsand permanently secured thereto, as speci fied. 2. A construction containing the elements inv combination defined in claim 1, said ends having flaps cut therefrom at three sides and said rein 5 forcing sections having openings' which are brought into conjunction when the reinforcing sections are folded into place,> said flaps extend 'ing through said openings and being bent around the upper edge portions thereof and against the 10 inner side of the innermost reinforcing section, and means connecting said flaps, reinforcing sec tions and end members. 3. A box of the class described made from a single piece of paperboard having a horizontal 15 bottom, vertical sides turned upwardly from the angles to the flaps 2I and then the flaps 2I` and side edges of said bottom, vertical ends- turned 23 turned at .right-angles to the plane of the top upwardly from the ends of said bottom, reinforc ing sections one at each side edge of each ver sections I9, the end flaps 22 coming inside of the 20 end portions of the flaps 23 and being stapled thereto. This provides two top sections hinged to the sides I8 of the box at the scorings I4 and adapted to be turned inwardly, the slots at 6 and I2 in the end sections 5 and the end reinforcing 25 members II receiving the inturned flaps 23 and the reinforcing corner portions 22 thereof, while the flaps 2| lie outside of the upper edge portions of the ends of the box (see Fig. 5). With this construction of box the ends are very strongly reinforced. The holes through which tical end and turned inwardly and overlapping 20 each other at the inner side of each end, flaps ex tending from each end of each vertical side and overlapping said ends, and staples extending through said flaps, ends and reinforcing sections, as specified. , 4. A construction containing the elements in combination defined in claim 3, said ends and reinforcing sections at their upper edges and in termediate their side edgeshaving vertical slots out downwardly therein for a short distance, said the hands of those handling the boxes are in slots coming into alining conjunction when the serted, at I3, are-strengthened and reinforced by the inturned and stapled flap sections "I, while the upper edges of said holes are rounded and reinforcing »sections are folded one againsty the 25 ab other and both at the inner sides of the ends. 5. A shipping case made from a blank of fiat 85 broadened so as to make a smoother and wider material, having a bottom, two sides,7 and two top 35 bearing surface to come against the palms of the ‘I sections in alinement in said blank, and having hand in lifting ,the box and its contents. The upper side of the box may be opened fully for placing bottled goods or the like within, and then the box closed by turning the top sections to closed position- as in Fig. 3, whereupon the box may then be sealed along the dividing line be tween the two top sections if desired. If for any reason it appears desirable to‘strengthen the box " bottom, this construction of box is one which is very easily reinforced by merely cutting a piece of paperboard stock to the right rectangular size and placing it within and against the upper side ’ of the bottom of the box, lconnecting it in place if wanted; andn of course, either end or side flaps or both could be provided to the reinforcing bot tom and stapled in place. However, such rein forcement is no part of the present invention and is mentioned only to show the adaptability of the box which I have invented to such reinforcement if it should be wanted. The box structure is` one of ‘an economical de sign, the blanks are cut with dies very rapidly, 60 large quantity production may be had, the blanks may be shipped in flat form and very quickly and ends one at each end of the bottom in alinement therewith and furtherA provided with reinforcing sections one at each edge of each end, said blank being scored transversely for its full width at each 40 side edge of the bottom and scored longitudinally for its full length at each end of the bottom, said blank being cut starting at each point where said longitudinal and transverse scorings cross each other, said cut extending outwardly at an angle to 45 the scorings for a short distance and then paral lel to said longitudinal scorings whereby the blank may be folded upon said scorings to pro vide a bottom, vertical sides, vertical ends, in wardly foldable reinforcing sections, one at each 50 vertical side edge of each-,end adapted to overlap each other and lie against theinner side of the end to which connected, and further providing an end flap one at each end of each vertical side adapted to be turned inwardly atthe outer side of each end of the box and extend vertically to the upper edges of the box, as specified. 6. A shipping case made from a blank of fiat material, having a bottom, two sides and two top sections in longitudinal alinement in said blank 60 and having ends, one at each end of the bottom and further provided with reinforcing sections easily shaped into the completed box requiring only the stapling of the flaps 1, 20, and 22 after - one at each edge of each end, said blank being the blank has been bent along the scored lines to 65 the proper positions. The invention is defined in the appended claims and is to be considered comprehensive of all forms cf structure coming within their scope. I claim: 70 1. A box comprising a bottom, vertical sides and ends, said ends having reinforcing members folded inwardly, one from each vertical edge thereof and overlapping each- other and perma nently connected to said en_ds, and each side hav 75 ing projecting flaps extending inwardly over the scored transversely at each side edge of the bot tom and scored longitudinally at each end of the bottom, said blank being cut starting at each point where said longitudinal and transversev scorings cross each other, said cuts extending outwardly at an angle to the scorings for a short distance and then parallel to said longitudinal 70 scorings whereby the blank may be folded upon said scorings to provide the bottom, vertical sides, vertical ends and two inwardly foldable reinforc ing sections for each end adapted to lie over each other against the inner side of the end fb 75 's 2,111,876 which connected, said blank being further trans versely scored between the upper edge of each vertical side and a top section, said scorings ex tending between the longitudinal scorings of the its associated end, andl means integral with each vertical side adapted to be' folded inwardlyl to- . ward each other at the outer sides of said ends whereby securing means may be passed through blank and there being a transverse slot at the y said means and through the ends and said rein end of each of said last mentioned transverse forcing members to permanently connect them , » scorings extending outwardly to the adjacent cut, _ together. 9. A box of the class described made from a and said blank being further transversely scored a short distance inwardly from êach end thereof . .single blank _of ñat material having a horizontal 10 and having slots in each end of the blank in alinement with said longitudinal scorings extend ing to said last-mentioned transverse scorings. substantially as and for the purposes described. 7. A construction containing the elements in. combination defined in claim 6, each of said ends and each of said end reinforcing sections having a slot in its outer edge substantially midway be tween its side edges, all of said slots in an end and two cooperating reinforcing sections coming 20 .into alining conjunction when said reinforcing sections are inwardly folded to overlap each other and lie against the inner side oi' the end to which attached. ß. A box made from a blank oi dat material 25 comprising, a bottom, vertical sides and ends, each end having reinforcing members integrally connected therewith and folded inwardly to over lap each other and lie against the >inner side of bottom, integrally connected vertical sides turned 10. upwardly from the side edgesof said bottom, in tegrally connected vertical ends turned upwardly from the end edges of said bottom, reinforcing sections integrally connected, one at each vertical . side edge of each end and turned inwardly and 15 overlapping each other at the inner side of each end and ñaps integrally connected with and lo cated one at each end of each of said sides, and turned inwardly toward each other over the outer sides of said ends, as and for the purposes speci 20 ded.
