  • Publication number: 20080142395
    Abstract: A package is provided having a tapered sleeve that has a greater width on a proximal end than a distal end of the sleeve, the sleeve having one or more foldable tabs and a first opening, and a tapered slidable insert having a greater width on a proximal end than a distal end of the slidable insert, the slidable insert having one or more indents, and the slidable insert being insertable into the sleeve through the first opening. The one or more foldable tabs align with the one or more corresponding indents, providing a locking mechanism. The foldable tab(s) can be located at the proximal end of the sleeve and the indent(s) can be located at the proximal end of the slidable insert, or the foldable tab(s) and the indent(s) can be located at a distal end of the sleeve and slidable insert, respectively.

  • Patent number: 4386926
    Abstract: A method, apparatus for forming, and article formed of folded, relatively rigid sheet plastic material (e.g. polyolefin is disclosed). A hinging membrane forming a flexible fold line provides stress-relief indentations in the sheet material so that the tensile and compressive strains normally produced when bending the sheet material at the folds are substantially relieved, thereby permitting efficient production of a variety of sheet plastic articles, such as folding containers and the like.Two embodiments of the invention are disclosed.In one embodiment, the stress-relief indentations are simultaneously formed on opposed surfaces of the sheet material at the desired fold line by an apparatus having an unheated die containing a scoring blade mounted for movement against the material to be scored, which is supported on a hard and polished platen, with the plastic sheet material arranged between the scoring blade and platen.
