  • Patent number: 10815029
    Abstract: A system is provided comprising a box with four bottom flaps, at least four durable pegs projecting from exterior surfaces of two opposing bottom flaps, the pegs positioned to function as a built-in pallet structure for the box, adhesive strips on interior surfaces of the two opposing bottom flaps to promote closure of the bottom flaps, four top flaps, interior surfaces of two opposing top flaps containing protected adhesive strips to promote closure of the top flaps, and wax paper covering the adhesive strips prior to use of the strips. The pegs are constructed from the same material as the box. Material comprising the pegs is denser than material comprising the box. The denser concentration of the peg material enables the pegs to sustain weight of the box and contained items. The pegs are positioned on the opposing bottom flaps.
