MENT OF THE FLOW OF THE CONTENTS
FROM CARTONS OR CONTAINERS
Albert L. Nelsen, Fargo, N. nu.
Application April 5,1937, Serial No. 135,117
6 Claims. (Cl. 221-98)
This invention relates to a measuring dispenser.
andv it is primarily an object of the invention to
provide a device or structure of this kind which.
as a result of conventional tipping or overturning
manipulations of the carton or container, permits
the discharge of the contents of the carton or
container in predetermined bulk or desiredquan
tity.
_
.
It is also an object of the invention to provide
closed together with the steps after discharge for
re?lling the measuring dispenser for a subse
quent delivery.
In the embodiment of my invention as illus
trated in Figures 1 and 2, the measuring dispenser 5
is a part of the carton or container and the
measuring dispenser proper is comprised in the >
one blank from which the container and measur
ing dispenser are produced as a unit.

when such carton or container is in a certain po
tween the walls or faces A and B and separated

a lesser quantity.
'
The invention'also has for an object to provide
a measuring dispenser wherein the salient features are housed within the carton or container
and wherein the structure is such as to eliminate
20 the use of any mechanically operated parts.
The invention consists in the details of con
struction and in the combination and arrange
V ment of the several parts of my improved meas

the ?ap F. The tab 8 is extended by the tab it 35
oi’ desired length but of a width substantially
equal to the width of the side wall 8. The longi
tudinal margins of the tab I l are separated by
the score lines I! from the ?aps l6. These ?aps
iii in plan are substantially V-shaped in form 40
with their apices outwardly disposed. These
?aps l6 also extend entirely along the ?ap I‘
with the inner inclined edges l1 terminating at
the junction of the score lines I 5 and the score
line it separating the tabs 9 and it. The outer 45
inclined edges I! of the flaps i6 terminate at
desired points outwardly and laterally from the
score lines l5 whereby the ?aps It at their outer
ends are provided with relatively short edges 20,
the length of which determining the width of, the 50
receiving opening for the dispensing structure as
will hereinafter appear.
,
The score lines 5 are also continued by the score
lines 2| which extend‘ across the side wall W and
separate the same ‘from the tabs 22 and 23. The ll.

2,127,417
outer portion of the tab 23 is. separated by the
transversely disposed score line 24 from an end
?ap 2!, and the extremities of the flap 2! are
separated by the transversely disposed score ‘lines
23 from the outstanding wings 21 aligned with
each other and with the ?ap 28.
The tabs 8 and 22 are of substantially the same
length and the combinedlengths of the tab, 23
and flap 2‘ are substantially equal to the com
bined lengthsof the tabs 3 and i4. '
In producing a container and measuring dis
. penser from the blank as illustrated in Figure 1,
the tab 3 is folded on the line 3 to overlie the
inner face of the wall S andthe tab I4 is folded
15 upwardly on the line It and the ?aps l6 folded
inwardly on the lines llin a direction toward
the wall 8. The ?aps it are adjusted with their
apices registering with the Junctions of the score
lines I and I and | and ‘I whereupon the walls
A and B are swung one toward the other along
the lines I. The ?aps l3 are then adhesively se
cured to the inner faces of the walls A and B. To
provide for this securement the proper faces of
the ?aps |l have disposed thereover a lamination
of glue or other adhesive material or, if preferred,
the desired adhesive or cementitious material may
be applied to the ?aps vl8 at the time of assembly.
The side wall W is then properly folded on the
line 2 so that the ?ap 3 may be adhesively or
30 otherwise secured to the opposed faces of the
walls S and W. The straight edges 20 of the ?aps
I8 provide'an entrance opening for the contents
of the completed container within the dispensing
device as is more particularly illustrated in Figure
35 2. The tab 23 is then folded inwardly between the
spaced walls S and W until this tab 23 assumes a
action will continue until the container C as
sumes a substantially vertical inverted position as
illustrated in Figure 9. At this time the content
of the container drops to the then bottom portion
of the container but will not continue to ?ow out
through the spout b. However, as the container
0 is again moved into substantially a horizontal
position as illustrated in Figure 10 and then re
turned to its vertical position as indicated in Fig
ure 11, the measuring pocket b will be re?lled. It
is believed to be obvious that Just so long as there
is any material within the container C a supply
can be delivered within the measuring pocket b.
It is to be stated, however, that with the con
tainer C in the horizontal position as illustrated 15
in both Figures 7 and 10, a small amount of the
contents may be discharged by slightly shaking
the carton.
In the embodiment of the invention as illus
trated in Figures 3 and 4, the measuring‘dis 20
penser is constructed as a separate unit but is
positioned within the carton to function in the
same manner as the measuring dispenser com
prised'in the ?rst embodiment of my invention.
In the structure as illustrated in Figures 3 and 4 25
the measuring dispenser comprises an elongated
narrow sheet of material having extending trans
versely thereacross at approximately its longi
tudinal center a score line 29 whereby is pro
vided two walls 33 and 3|. The wall 30 is sepa- 30
rated by the longitudinally disposed score lines 32
from the substantially V-shaped ?aps 33 of a
con?guration substantially the same as the form
of the ?aps I8 hereinbefore referred to.
The wall 3| at one side thereof is provided with 35
a flap 34 separated from the wall 3| by the score
position substantially ?ush with the adjacent
ends of the walls A and Has determined by the

opposite side thereof is provided with the rela
score lines 9 and ‘I. The flap 25 is then ?exed in
tively small ?ap 38 separated from the wall 3|
wardly on the line 24 substantially at right angles by the score line 31. This score line 31 extends 40
to the tab 23 and the wings 21 are folded on the to the outer end of the wall 3| and the outer por

Figures 5 to 11 inclusive illustrate the, various
successive steps in discharging the contents from
within the container C. These ?gures are dia
grammatic in character and the discharge‘ spout
65 is indicated at a and the measuring pocket at b.
In Figure 5 the container is in an upright posi
tion with a predetermined quantity of the con
tents of the container C in the pocket b. As the
container 0 is tipped over,‘ as shown in Figure 6,
70 to the horizontal position as illustrated in Figure
7, no discharge of the contents is obtained but as
the container is moved to an inverted inclined
position as illustrated in Figure 8 the contents of
the container within the measuring pocket will
76 discharge out through the spout a. This pouring
tially at right angles to the wall 3| and the spout
wall 39 is folded on the line 40 to extend trans 60
versely of the wall 3| and the ?ap 4| is folded on
the line 42 substantially at right angles to the
wall 39 and adhesively secured to the upper or
outer portion of the ?ap 34 whereby a desired
discharge spout is provided. It is, however, to 65
be understood that the flap 34 is suitably folded
on the line 35 and the ?ap 36 suitably folded on
the line 31 to permit such ?aps to be adhesively
secured to the side walls 41 of the carton or con
tainer in which the measuring dispenser is 70
placed.
