4 Claims. (Cl. 225-47)
This invention relates to roll tape dispensers and ‘con
tainers and, in particular, to a roll tape dispenser and 10
container manufactured of a mouldable material such as
plastic.
The tape dispenser and sealed ‘container in accord with
this invention is intended for dispensing tape and protect
ing tape from atmospheric conditions, moisture, dirt and 15
dust as distinct from‘a dispenser which affords little or
no protection for the tape. The need for the type of dis
penser disclosed herein has long been recognized but
could not previously be made at a competitive price due
to certain manufacturing difficulties‘. Every type of tape 20
dispenser provides some sort of axle means to hold a roll
of tape for rotation and some sort of severing means for
tearing off the tape as required. It was found, however,
that certain manufacturing di?iculties were encountered

of bottom member 10 and top member 14 is, in turn,
adapted to ?t over frame 11. It is the principle of mould
ing roll mounting unit 12 and severing mechanism 13
separately from the bottom member 10 which chie?y
characterizes this invention.
If roll mounting unit 12 and severing mechanism 13
were moulded integrally with the bottom member 10, it
would be impossible to extract the unit thus formed from
the mould. This is because the severing mechanism 13
would extend across the open top of bottom member 10,
and would thus prevent the withdrawal of the inner
mould. On the other hand, if the severing mechanism
were moulded along the upper edge of one end of bot
tom member 10, the severing mechanism would then in
terfere with the sealing engagement between bottom
member 10 and top member 14. In this regard, it will
be noted that if the sealing engagement between the top
and ‘bottom members is to be effected ‘by a press ?t of top
member 14 over the upper free edge of bottom member
10, the said upper free edge must have a smooth face
over its full length and the formation of a severing
mechanism as part of said edge would not achieve this
result.
Instead of moulding the severing mechanism 13 to
bottom member 10 with the ‘attendant disadvantages
when attempting to provide these two essential elements 25
