Abstract: A plurality of magnets can be positioned around a container through the use of a plurality of holders that can be releaseably positioned around the container. Each holder has an area compatible in shape to the magnet to hold a magnet. The base of the holder which contracts the container is of a shape compatible to that of the container. There is at least one aperture on at least two sides of the holder. A strap is placed through the apertures and secured at each end. This secures the magnets to the container. The holder can have a flexible base portion or can itself be flexible. The holders can be at an angle of about 150° to about 210° to the axis of the container. The magnets can be positioned in various polar arrays around the container. The container will hold an aqueous liquid either in a static or flow condition. The container can be a bottle, pipe conduit and/or a filter within pipe conduit system.

Abstract: The carton can be used both as a shipper carton and a display carton. The carton comprises two or more channels for containing products. The channels can be opened to maintain the integrity of the carton for use as a display carton by maintaining the integrity of the base wall, but with the removal of substantially all of the top wall of each channel and a significant portion of the sidewalls of each channel. The remaining part of the sidewalls, a rear wall and the base provide the structure for the use of the carton as a display carton. If used as a shipper, a tear strip on the base wall is removed and the carton fully opened and emptied. The carton is made from a unique carton blank and a unique folding of the panels of the blank to make the carton. In particular the abutting walls of the channels are of a unique structure with each having a separate sidewall and these separate sidewalls not connected to the base wall.
