Figs. 16 and 17 showfurther variations of the liner.

The invention relates to an easy packing. container. of large capacity such as illustrated in my prior Patent No; 2,635,802. The improved. container may have flaps of the usual type for end closures or it may have telescoping caps of the usual type for end. closures and again. the bottom may. have flaps for an end. closure and the top end of the container closed by a cap; As shown. in Figures 1 to 4 the container has flaps for. end closures. The container with its flaps may be made from a single black such as indicated at 1 in Figure l. The blank is scored along the lines2, 3 and 4 to form the side panels 7 and 8 of the container, the rear panel-9 and the front panel 10. The blank is also scored along the line 5 from one end thereof to the other so as to set oil flaps 11 and 12 whichsare integral with the side panels, a flap 13- which. is integral with the rear panel and 21 flap 14- which is integral. with the front panel 16. The blank is also scored along the line 6 extending from one end to the other to set off panels 15, and 16 which are formed integral with the side panels 7 and 8 respectively-and flap 17 which is integral Withthe rear panel 9 and a flap 18-which is integral with the panel. 10: These flaps are separated one from another by slits so that they may be independently folded into position for forming closure ends.

The panel. 10 is slit ordivided horizontally along the line 19. This divides the front panel into a lower subpanel ZG'and an upper sub-panel 21. The blank is scored along the line 22. soas to provide a. flap 23 which is integral with the lower sub-panel 21); The. blankis. also scored at 24 to provide a flap 25 which is integral with the sub-panel 21. This blank. may be cut-and scored whilein the flap. and then folded along the lines referred to in order to, provide the assembled container. I

In Figure 2 the. sidepanels'i and 8. are brought into an upright position and. in. substantially parallel relation; The rear panel 9 is also. brought into an upright position with the panels 7 and 8. The lower sub-panel is placed in a position parallel with the rear panel and with the flap 23 extending along the inner face of the side panel 7. It is secured thereto by stitching indicated-at 26 or any other suitable means. Instead of securing this flap to the inner face of the side panel 7 it may be secured to the outer face thereof.

The flaps and 16 are folded into a common plane and then the flaps 17 and 18 are folded down onto the flaps 15 and 16 and the flaps are secured together by stitching or any other suitable means so as to form a solid bottom closure for the container. The flaps 11 and 12 are also folded down into a common plane and the flap 13 is folded down onto these flaps 11 and 12 and secured thereto by any suitable means.

As shown in Figure 2 the upper sub-panel 21 with its flap 25 and also the flap 14 is in open position, thus providing an access opening in the front panel leading to the interior thereof.

The front panel 10 is divided horizontally on a line 19 which may be a line midway between the upper and lower ends of the container. It is essential, however, that the upper terminus 27 of the lower sub-panel 20 shall be so positioned as to provide a packing space beneath the same which has a depth not exceeding the normal reach of a packer. The container itself may be of a height considerably greater than the normal reach of a packer. The container is particularly adapted for packing and for shipment of merchandise. The packer through the access opening can reach all points within the packing space below the upper terminus 27 and thus arrange the material in proper packed relation. The packer can continue packing the merchandise in the container until it is filled to capacity after which the upper sub-panel 21 is moved into closed position with the flap 14 overlying the flaps 11 and 12 and abutting against the rear flap 13. .The flap will engage within the container side wall and lie directly over the flap 23 on the lower sub-panel. By having these flaps 25 and 23 in alignment one above the other it greatly strengthens the corner section of the container. When the flap 25 is :on the inner face of the side panel 7 it will lie between said panel and the merchandise within the container and be frictionally held in closed position. If the flap 23 is secured to the outer face of the side panel 7 then it is preferred to place the flap 25 on the outer side of the panel 7 and secure it in place by taping. After the container has been packed to capacity it is then taped as shown in Figure 3 wherein the tapes indicated at T are placed over the meeting edges of the flaps and the side panels. This completely seals the container and it is ready for storage or shipment. When it is desired to wholly or partially unpack the container the tapes may be removed so as to free the upper subpanel 21 and the flaps carried thereby and then this panel may be moved to the position shown in Figure 2 or ,to a further open position so as to give. free access to the container.

In Figures 5, 6, 7 and 8 the container body is of similar construction to that shown in Figures 1 to 4. The bottom closure is formed by flaps but the side, rear and front panels do not carry flaps for closing the upper end of the container. The upper end of the container is closed by means of a cap.

The blank from which the container just referred to is formed is indicated at 28 in Figure 5. The blank is scored along the lines 29, 30 and 31 to set off side panels 32 and 33 and a rear panel 34. The score line 31 sets off a front panel 35 which is slit or divided along a horizontal line 36, thus forming an upper sub-panel 37 and a lower subpanel 38. The blank is further scored from one end to the other along a line 38 to set off flaps 39 and 40 which are integral with the panels 32 and 33 respectively. It also sets oif a flap 41 which is integral with the rear panel 34 and a flap 42 which is integral with the lower sub-panel 38. The blank is further scored along a line 43 to set off a flap 44 which is integral with the lower sub-panel 38 and a flap 45 which is integral with the upper sub-panel 37. This flap 45 is slit or divided horizontally along the line 46 for purpose hereinafter described.

In Figure 6 the blank has been folded along the fold lines just described and the complete container body assembled. This body includes the side panels 32 and 33 and the rear panel 34. The bottom closure is formed from the flaps 39 to 42. The flaps 39 and 40 are folded down into a common plane and the flaps 41 and 42 are folded down onto the flaps 39 and 40 and secured by stitching or any other suitable way. This forms a very rigid bottom construction. The sub-panel 38 is moved to a position parallel with the rear panel 34 and the flap 44 extends along the inner face of the side panel 32 and is secured thereto by stitching indicated at 47. The upper front sub-panel 35 is shown in closed position in Figure 6. The portion of the flap 45 beneath the horizontal slit 46 is shown as placed on the inner face of the side panel 32 and the portion 45 of this flap 45 is placed on the outer face of the side panel 32. This permits the upper portion of the front sub-panel 35 carrying the section 45 of the flap to abut against the edge of the side panel 32. This prevents the sub-panel from moving into the container when it is swung to closed position.

When it is desired to pack the container the upper subpanel 35 is swung to the broken line position and this provides an access opening leading to the interior of the container. The lower sub-panel 38 is so dimensioned and the upper terminus 48 thereof is so positioned that the packing space defined by the lower sub-panel, the side panels and rear panel is within the normal reach of a packer and access is easily had to all points therein, when the upper sub-panel is swung to open position thus forming an access opening leading to the interior of the container. The cap for closing the container shown in Figure 6 is of the usual construction. The cap is shown at 49 in Figure 7. The cap includes a top which completely covers the open end of the container and the top is provided with integral depending flanges.

The flange 50 has extensions 51, 51 at the ends thereof. The flange 52 likewise has extensions 53, 53 at the ends thereof. There is a side flap 54 formed integral with the top which folds down against the extensions 51 and 53 and is stitched thereto. There is a similar flange 55 formed integral with the top and this flange is folded down and stitched to the extensions 51 and 53 at the other side of the cap. After the container is packed and the panel 21 swung to closed position then the cap is telescoped down over the side, rear and front panels. The cap may be held in place in any suitable way. As shown in Figure 7 it is secured by a bail indicated at B. The meeting edges of the sub-front-panel sections are covered by means of a tape indicated at T.

The container shown in Figures 1 to 9 and described above may be used without any liner when packing certain types of merchandise. There are other times when a liner is desirable for certain portions at least of a container.

In Figures 9 to 11 there is shown a three-sided liner. The liner section 56 engages the side panel 33 and the liner section 58 engages the side panel 32. The rear side liner section 57 engages the rear panel 34 of the container. These liner sections 56 and 58 extend all the way to the front of the container. The lower sub-panel 38 abuts against the edge of the liner section 58 and the flap thereon engages between the liner and the side panel section 32. The swinging sub-panel 35 likewise abuts against the edge of the liner section 58 and the flap 45 extending between the liner section 58 and the side panel section 32 as shown in Figure 11. This provides a positive means for limiting the inward swinging movement of this upper sub-panel 35 and the flap carried thereby housed between the liner and the side panel form an eflicient '5 holding means for securing the upper sub-panel inclosed position.

In-Figures l2 and 13 there is shown a four-sided liner. Said four-sided liner is similar in construction to the three sided liner above described and like numerals have been applied thereto. The four-sided liner, however, has a fourth section which engages the front panel of the container. The side section 38has an integral liner section joined thereto. Inasmuch as this liner section is at the front of the container it is divided into an upper liner section 59 and a lower liner section 60. This upper liner section 59 has a flap 61 extending along its outer free edge. The swinging section 59 is so dimensioned that it will swing outwardly through the access opening as shown in Figure 12. When it is moved to closed position the flap 61 engages between the liner section 56 and the side panel 33 as best shown in Figure 13. When the upper sub-panel 35 is swung to closed position the flap 45 thereon will engage between the liner section 58 and the side panel 32. The four-sided liner not only greatly strengthens the side and rear panels of the container but it also greatly strengthens the front panel. The flap on the swinging liner section engaging between the liner side section and the side panel will greatly strengthen the corner at the hinge side of the panel 35 and the panel 45 on the hinge panel 35 will greatly strengthen the corner section as the hinge side of the liner section. These liners are, of course, made from separate blanks and after they are cut and scored they can be readily slipped into the assembled container shown in Figures 1 to 8. The liner extends all the way from the bottom to the top end of the body portion of the container and does not in any way interfere with the providing of an access opening in the front panel to facilitate the packing of the container.

In some instances a liner may be used only in connection with the front panel. Such a'liner is shown in Figures l4 and 15. The liner consists of a section 62 which extends the full height of theifront panel. This section 62 is scored alongthe'horizontal line 63 so as to provide an upper section 64 and a lower section 65; The upper section 64 is provided with flaps 66 and 67' at the sides thereof. The lower section 65 is provided with flaps 63 and 69. These flaps are separated from each other as indicated at 70 so that the upper section 62 may swing about the score line 63 as a hinge line. section will be inserted in the container and the flaps 6d and 65 stitched to the'side panels.

When it is desired to pack the container the upper subpanel 35 is swung to open position. Then the upper section of the liner 62 may be swung outwardly through the access opening provided when the panel 35 is swung to open position. In order that this may be accomplished the hinge line 63 of the liner is disposed adjacent but slightly above the upper edge of the lower sub-panel section 38. When the container is packed this hinged section of the liner is swung to closed position and the flaps will engage between the merchandise and the side panels of the container. The upper sub-panel 35 is then swung to closed position and the flap 45 inserted between the flap 66 and the side panel 32. This closes the front panel of the container and then the cap may be telescoped onto the upper ends of the panel sections for closing the container. A bail such as described above is then applied for holding the swinging members in closed position. For the sake of clearness the three types of liners as described above are shown as applied to the container wherein the upper end is closed by a cap. It is understood, however, that they may be likewise slipped into the containers which are closed at the upper end by flaps such as shown in Figures 1 to 4.

While the front liner section shown in Figure can be used alone with the container it may also be used with a three-sided liner and with a container having flaps for end closure or acap for an end closure. While the flaps along the edge of the upper swinging panel may be held This front liner view. The liner includes side members 71, 71 which, 1

as shown, extend from the bottom of the container to the top thereof. These side liners extend rearwardly so as to cover half of the side walls of the container proper.

'The liner has a front panel 72 which extends from the bottom of the container to the top thereof. Said front panel is provided with a score line offsetting an upper section of the panel from the lower section thereof. The liner blank is also cut alongthe sides thereof of the upper panel. This enables the'upper panel to be swung. outwardly and downwardly when the upper panel of the front wall of the container is swung to open position. The hinge line of the liner is slightly above the upper edge of the lower panelsection 38. When it is desired to pack the container the upper panel section 35 is swung to open position as shown in'Figure l6 and the upper section of. the liner is swung outwardly and downwardly to the position shown in Figure 16. The hinge line of the liner is so disposed that all parts of the lower packing. section are accessible to the normal packer. After the container is packed then the swinging section of the liner is turned to a vertical position and then the upper panel section of the container is swung to closed position after which a capis telescoped onto the container in the manner described above.

In Figure 17 there is shown a blank which may be cut and'scored to provide a four-section. liner. The blank is rectangular and is of a width so that the panel sections formed therefrom will extend from the bottom of the container to the top thereof. The blank is scored along the lines 73 and 74 to set off a rear panel section 75. It is also scored along the lines 76 and 77 to provide a lower liner section 78. The line 77 is a hinge line for the upper section 79 of the liner. The blank is cut at 80 so that the panel 79 may swing outwardly and downwardly on the hinge line 77 in the same manner that the liner section 72 swings outwardly to the access opening when the outer upper panel of the container 35 is moved to open position. It is not thought necessary to show the foursided liner as installed in the container such as shown in Figure 16 as all that is necessary is to bend the liner along the score lines into shape for insertion in the container and then it can he slipped into the container.

With this three-sided liner shown in Figure 16 and the four-sided liner shown in Figure 17, when the container is to be closed the flaps on the upper and lower front panel sections engage between a side liner and a side panel. The flap between the lower section 38 of the front panel is placed between the side panel and the liner panel and stitched.
