A display turret for supporting four identical box-dispensing units on a counter. Each unit is constituted by a frame having a pair of side walls from which ledges project inwardly to divide the interior of the frame into compartments for accommodating the boxes to be stored, the side walls being bridged at the rear of the frame by upper and lower cross slats. The turret is formed by a center post extending between square top and bottom plates whose corners are chamfered, the sides of the plates being provided with upwardly-extending flanges to define brackets. Thus each side of the turret has an upper and lower bracket, these brackets being adapted to engage the upper and lower slats of a respective unit whereby the turret supports an array of four units.
A vertically-mountable dispenser unit for storing and individually dispensing a large number of small boxes. The unit is formed by a frame including a pair of side walls having corresponding-positioned, inwardly-directed ridges thereon that divide the unit into parallel channels for receiving the boxes. Each channel has a discharge opening at the lower end thereof which is terminated by a ledge whereby the boxes are retained in the channels by the ledges and may be laterally withdrawn therefrom. The unit is fabricated of clear thermoplastic material and is created from a flat injection-molded blank that is thermally folded to assume the desired configuration.
A clamping type bracket which is attachable without tools to a shelf or other board-like members to support a shelf extension or other objects. The bracket includes an upper arm adapted to rest on the top surface of the shelf and a lower arm which extends below the undersurface of the shelf to define a free space therebetween, the lower arm being in the form of a ramp whose sloping surface is treaded. Receivable within the free space is a removable locking piece whose horizontal upper edge engages the undersurface of the shelf and whose lower edge is sloped and treaded to complement the ramp, whereby when the piece is thrust into the free space, it wedges therein to secure the bracket to the shelf.
A blister-card package for housing cylindrical articles of merchandise, the package being convertible into an easel-supported display stand and a one-at-a-time dispenser. The package is constituted by a card covered by a transparent plastic dome to define a rectangular container for a stack of cylinders, the container having an opening in the lower end thereof from which the articles may be withdrawn.
A generally-rectangular box adapted to store candy pieces and other small objects, the upper side wall of the box having a double-humped wave formation, and the lower side wall thereof having a complementary single-humped wave formation, whereby when the boxes are stacked one above the other in a dispenser unit, the boxes intermesh with each other. When the boxes are withdrawn from the dispenser unit and the candy pieces removed therefrom, they are usable as play modules, in that a pair of boxes placed in end-to-end relation may be intercoupled by a third box seated on and straddling the adjacent humps of the pair below. Moreover, because the boxes have an abstract animal-like form, they may be decorated to assume the appearance of zebras, lions, and other four-legged animals, thereby enhancing their play value.
