2 Claims.
My invention relates to containers, particularly
to containers made of paper, ñberboard or the

ners of the collar panels t, a space lll is left be
like and having six or more sides. The invention

contain a heavy shiftable lading. Other objects
The bottom of the container is covered by a
closure sheet it having triangular 'tabs i2 de
and advantages appear hereinafter.
'I‘he invention consists principally in a con-
íined by creases i3 or score lines. These ltri
angular tabs i2 extend into the spaces il) between
tainer having a collar member at the end of the
' 10 container body, a closure sheet covering the end
of the body and having ñaps projecting into the
the body panels 2 and the collar panels a. ‘The
bottom collar 'l has flaps Ml of segmental shape 10
defined by. creases i5 or score lines. These flaps

the container being particularly intended and
adapted for nails, bolts, nuts and other heavy
shiftable lading, the top closure sheet 22 is po
sitioned with its tabs 23 between the body panels 35
2 and the top collar panels 24, after which the
segmental flaps 2i of the collar are folded over
against the top closure sheet 22 >and adhesively
secured thereto, as shown at 26.
The arrangement of the grain or fibers in the 40
material from which the several parts are made is
selected so as to obtain the maximum strength,
bearing in mind the fact that score or crease
lines extending along the grain or fiber lines of
45 lng t0 DI‘Oducc longltlldinal ribs 4 alOng the
paper or the like weaken the material much more 45
meeting edges 0f the Outer faces 0f adjacent
panels ‘L’~ The body may be made from e nat
blank and the overlapping edges 5 of the material
secured together by staples 6 or otherwise.
The bottom closure member of Figs. 1 to 5 includes a collar 1 having panels 8 corresponding
to the panels 2 of the body and fitting over the
lower portion of the body I.` The collar 1 is pro-
than such score lines extending across the flow
of the grain or fiber. In the container body, the
grain or fiber iiow is circumferentially of the body
as indicated by the lines 30, so that the longitudi
nal scoring of the body flange extends crosswise 50
of the grain ñow. In the top collar 20 and the
bottom collar l, the important consideration is a
strong connection between the segmental flaps
vided with Wide creases 9 along the meeting edges
55 of adjacent panels 8. By reason of the outstand-
- and the panels. In the collars the grain flow is
longitudinally of the body I, as indicated by the 55
lines 3l, that is the grain ñow is at right angles to
the grain flow of the body member I. This mini
mizes the weaking effect of the score lines that
define the segmental flaps. In the top and bot
tom collars, the longitudinal creases 9 between
panels need not be so deep as in the case of the
body, so that there is no serious weakening of
the top and bottom collars by reason of the
longitudinal score lines;
The end closure sheets Il and 22 may be made
of corrugated paperboard instead of the plain
multi-ply paper construction of the other parts.
In only two of the triangular tabs of the closure
sheets II and 22 do the score lines extend along
15 fiber lines 32, all other scores extending across
ñber lines.
In the modification shown in Fig. 6, the collars
40 are mounted inside the body, the segmental
securing ñaps 4| being provided on the ends oi
20 the body panels 2a. The end closure members 42
are mounted in the ends of the body, with their
triangular tabs 43 disposed between the collar
panels and the body panels. The segmental flaps
4I are folded over against the end closure mem
25 bers 42 and adhesively secured thereto. The col
lars 40 may be secured inside the body in any suit
able way, as by an adhesive or by staples 44.
The above described‘container construction ob
tains the maximum strength from material of
30 the kind described. The parts of the container
are easily assembled and the filled container Will
withstand very severe handling, even though filled
with heavy shiftable lading.
Obviously the body may have fewer or more
sides than the eight shown in the drawing and
numerous changes in the details of construction
and proportions of parts may be made without
departing from the invention so that I do not 5
wish to be limited to the precise constructio
What I claim is:
1. A multi-sided container comprising a body
member having a multiplicity of longitudinal 10
creases dividing said body into panels, a collar
mounted on the end of said body, said collar hav
ing panels corresponding to said body panels, and
a polygonal closure sheet having tabs projecting
from the sides thereof and- inserted between 15
panels of said body memberand said collar, said
collar having flaps folded over against said clo
sure sheet and substantially covering it.
2. A multi-sided container comprising a body
member having a multiplicity of longitudinal 20
creases dividing said body into panels, a collar
mounted on the end of said body, said collar
having panels corresponding to said body panels,
and a polygonal closure sheet having tabs pro
jecting from the si es thereof and inserted be 25
tween panels of said body member and said collar,
said collar having flaps folded over against said
closure sheet and adhesively secured thereto said
flaps covering substantially all of said closure
