  • Patent number: 5515971
    Abstract: An apparatus for transporting lamp bulbs such as a fluorescent tube includes a central housing assembly, a finger access port through which a finger can be inserted to partially push a retained fluorescent tube out of the apparatus is located on one end of the housing assembly and a first resilient or cushioning member located inside the housing adjacent the access port. A cap assembly is removably connected to a second opposed end of the central housing assembly. A compressible gripper assembly in the form of a resilient donut or ring is connected to an interior surface of the central housing assembly proximal to the first resilient member and has an uncompressed internal diameter which is less than an outer tube diameter of a fluorescent tube adapted to be retained in the apparatus by the gripper assembly. A filter member is provided coextensive with the access port between the first resilient member and the gripper assembly.
