Bennett, Overbrook Hills, Pa., miglior to Container Corporation of America, Chicago, Ill., a corporation of Delaware Application March 25, 1937, Serial No. 133,013 3 Claims. (Cl. 20d-»44) ‘l'ho preeent invention relates to containers and they constitute an additional wall of. the conmore particularly to a construction and arrange» thinex'. ment of ports whereby the contents of a. con» Flap Hl is preferably formed with an opening telnor may be conveniently indicated. I4 so positioned as to be overlapped with one of One object of the invention is to provide an the underlying naps, such es iiap i3. The opere» crrengement for indicating the contents of the ing I4 ls made of such size as to snugly retain a, container in which one of a plurality of articles flanged closure element l5, herein illustrated as to be packed in the container is secured with o, conventional bottle cap. with a top portion I6, respect to c. container wall so that the article bearing printed matter thereon, and a. hanged portion Il, one purpose of whichis to facilitate 10 10 Tony he readily viewed but will not become dis placed from its indîcotlng position. A. more specific object is to provide an ar rvr »ement in e container whereby a. flanged clo ture element such a. friction bottle cap may be retained withdts flange engaged between two overlapping container wall sections while its indicia bearing surface is exposed on the exte rior ci’ ‘the container. lin the drawing: 1 is o, perspective view' of a. portion of a Zii paperboard container, illustrating a flanged clo sure element held in place therein in an indicat ing position; Fig. 2 is o Irogmeutary sectional view illus trating the manner of retaining the ñanged cio sore element between two overlapping container removal of the closure from the bottle or other container to which lt is applied. In practice the container l will preferably be iilled with closure elements whereupon, just prior to sealing the container, an identical closure ele 15 ment is fitted into the opening in ilap I0. After the naps u and n have been folded 1n over the contents, flaps I0 and I2 will then be brought down thereover and will be sealed in this posi tion. By so doing, the flange I1 of the closure element is engaged between the lower surface of flap II) and the upper surface of the overlapped flap I3. This will retain the closure elementse 0 curelv in position with» its printed surfacefex posed to the exterior of the box, thus indicating the contents thereof. Fig. 3 is o. fragmentary plan View of the con~ miner bloeit. lin packaging flanged closizlre elements such as ‘bottle cops ,and jar covers which beer on their While the present description sets forth a pre ferred embodiment oi the invention, certain changes may be made in the construction with out departing from the spirit of the invention, 30 and 'it is therefore desired that the present em« upper surface certain indicating words and de bodiment be considered in all respects as illus woll sections; and . vices ouch as the ‘name and't1'ede~mark of the bottler or packer, it has been necessary to care 35 fully merk containers holding such flanged clo« _ sores so that alter the container has been sealed the contents will be properly indicated. While indication, of the contents may be provided by a trative and not restrictive, reference being had to the appended claims rather than to the lore» going description to indicate the scope of the invention. I claim: In order to 1. A container having side walls Aand overlap» ping juxtaposed closure naps, the outer of said overlapping flaps having formed therein an opening adapted to receive a 'reduced portion of avoid loss ci time and the other disadvantages a flanged element, the size of the opening being of the ‘use or marking implements, s. flanged closure identical with those contained in the container is preferably secured so that lts top portion is exposed on the exterior o1 the con telnor in such a. position that the wording there large enough to pass the reduced portion but too otencil, stamp or other marking implement this 40 matter of marking has certain drawbacks whichv .slow np the packing operations. on con be readily viewed. Referring to the drawing, the invention as 50 herein disclosed, is applied to a. conventional form of slotted carton, indicated at l, comprising side Wells t, 1, Il and 9 which bear respectively naps IIl, II, I2 and I3, defined from the walls by the score lines indicated. When the naps are folded 55 into overlapping position and secured in place small to pass the flange of the element, and the inner flap extending beneath said opening, where» 45 by the overlappins flaps are adapted to retain between them the ilnnge ot such element. 2. A paperboard container having side walls and overlapping juxtaposed cover flaps, the outer of said overlapping cover naps being formed 50 with an opening adapted to receive a reduced portion of a hanged element, the size of said opening being large enough to pass the reduced portion but too small to pass the nance of said element, and the inner flap extendingbeneath 55 2,111,888 nid opening, whereby upon inserting the reduced portion of said element therein and securing the naps together with the flange disposed between said naps. the tiene will retain the element per 5 manently in n. position visible from the exterior ot the container. 8. Indiceting means for containers comprising in combination n peperboerd contniner having side wells with overllpvlnl Juxtaposed cover 10 mpc thereon constituting additional weil sec tiœs.eiimgedelement,theouteroinidihps being formed with an opening through which the top portion only of the flanged element passes so ns to expose the same on the exterior of the container, and the inner ilap extending beneath said opening, the ñßnge of the closure element lying between said flaps and being oi' such size that it will not pass through said opening. and means for securing said flaps in overlapping re Intim.
