enclose a series of nested cups and which may be used
as a cup dispenser.
During recent years it has become relatively common
practice to provide cartons which serve as an enclosure
for a plurality of nested cups and which may be hung up
to position the cups in superimposed relation so that they
may be easily dispensed. Some means must be provided
for retaining the cups within the carton, this means being
releasable so that the cups may be withdrawn one at a
time from the open bottom of the carton. The present
invention resides in a novel form of cup support which
functions automatically by the ‘folding of certain ?aps
into a predetermined position.
In order to support the cups within the carton, flaps
must be folded from the walls. of the carton to extend
into the body of the carton a distance sufficient to engage
and '35. The lower end of the front wall panel 12 is also
connected along the fold line 33 to a bottom closure panel
36. The bottom closure panel 36 is hingedly connected
along a fold line 37 to a tuck ?ap 39 which is designed
to extend between edges of the closing ?aps 34 and 35
and the rear wall panel 10‘.
Flaps 40 and 41 are foldably connected to the side
wall panels 11 and 13 respectively along fold lines 42
and 43 respectively. The ?aps 40‘ and 41 are divided into
inner ?ap sections 44 and outer ?ap sections 45. The
outer ?ap sections 45 are provided with projecting tongues
46 of reduced width as compared with the width of the
remainder of the flaps 40 and 41. The upper corners
25 of the projecting tongues 46 are made accessible to be
pulled outwardly by a pair of cut lines 47 which diverge
apart from the end corners of the projecting tongues 46.
These diverging cut lines 47 de?ne trapezoidal tabs 49
which may be pressed inwardly by the ?nger so that the
upper ends of the tongues 46 may be grasped between
‘ the ?nger and thumb and pulled outwardly.
The fold lines 42 and 43 which connect vthe ?aps 40' and
41 to the wall panels 11 and 13 are centrally interrupted
by U-shaped cut lines 50 which project below the fold
35 ‘lines and form tongues 51 which are integral with the
inner ?ap sections 44 and which fold in unison therewith.
Generally U-shaped cut lines 52 and 53 are provided in
the side walls 11 and 13 beneath the level of the tabs 40
and 41 and are of proper width to accommodate the pro
the upper ?anged edge of the lowermost cup. Difficulty
has been experienced in inserting the flaps so that they
extend into the carton just the right amount to accomplish
the desired result. In the present invention, a ?ap is 30
hingedly connected to each of a plurality of walls and con
nected to the wall along a horizontal line of fold.
This
?ap is designed to be folded outwardly into right angular
relation to the carton wall. The .?ap is provided with a
projecting tongue which extends beyond the fold line and
which folds inwardly into the carton as the remainder of
the flap is folded outwardly, This inwardly extending
portion is of just the proper length to engage the ?anged
upper edge of the lowermost cup. As a result, the dis
