Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0001] The present invention relates to a packing box, more particularly a packing box, which is provided for containing a lashing rope winch therein, and which allows the winch to be easily taken out from it for trial by consumers without causing damage to any part thereof.

[0002] Manufacturers usually accommodate lashing rope winches in packing boxes so that they are well protected from getting damaged. The packing boxes allow the products to be easily displayed. Referring to FIG. 1, a conventional packing box consists of a cardboard 10, and a transparent front holding member 30. The transparent holding member 30 is shaped to have a holding room for the product. The cardboard 10, and the transparent holding member 30 are firmly joined together by means of driving staples through the edges of both so that the product is well protected.

[0003] However, this conventional packing box has disadvantages as followings:

[0004] 1. Staples used for such boxes are usually relatively big in size, and cannot be easily removed therefore it is not convenient for customers to take out the winch product from the packing box for trial or inspection.

[0005] 2. It not feasible for the customers to take out the winch product for trial and inspection, and the customers only can try to know about the product from the appearance and brief written description. Consequently, the customers cannot easily make up their minds to buy. And, the product is more likely to turn out to be unsuitable after the customers buy it.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0006] Therefore, it is a main object of the present invention to a packing box for a lashing rope winch, which allows the winch to be easily taken out from it for trial and inspection by consumers without possibility of damage being caused to any part thereof.

[0007] The packing box includes a holding plate, securing belts, an upper cover and a lower cover. The holding plate has several containing rooms arranged side by side. The securing belts are passed through connecting holes of the holding plate, and passed over the winch, and are made to become loops for securing the winch to the plate. The upper cover is pivoted to the holding plate, while the lower cover is detachably connected to the holding plate so that the winch can be easily taken out from the packing box.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

[0018] Referring to FIGS. 2, 3 and 6, a packing box for a lashing rope winch according to present invention includes a holding plate 1, an upper cover 2, a lower cover 3, and several securing belts 4.

[0019] The holding plate 1 has walls 15 sticking out from edges and intermediate portions of a front side thereof to define several containing rooms 11, which are arranged side by side. The holding plate 1 has pivotal holes 14 on lateral surfaces 13 of upper portions of the outermost lateral ones of the walls 15, and connecting holes 16 on front sides of the lowermost ones of the walls 15 as well as lower portions of the outermost lateral walls 15. Furthermore, the holding plate 1 is formed with several pairs of opposite through holes 12, 12 near edges of each of the containing rooms 11 for the securing belts 4 to pass through.

[0020] The upper cover 2 has a main covering portion 21, and two opposite lateral portions 22 sticking out from edges of the main portion 21. Each of the lateral portions 22 has a through hole 23.

[0021] The lower cover 3 has a main covering portion (not numbered), a bottom (FIG. 6), and two opposite lateral portions 31 sticking out from edges of the main portion. The bottom, and each of the lateral portions 31 has several engaging hooks 32 on the rear ends.

[0022] To hold a lashing rope winch 5 in the packing box, ropes 51 of the winch 5 are folded according to the length of the containing rooms 11, and the winch 5 is positioned in one of the rooms 11. The securing belts 4 are passed over the winch 5, and through respective pairs of through holes 12 of the holding plate 1 from the insertion ends 42, which are then tightly passed through the corresponding fixing portions 41. Thus, the winch 5 is secured to the holding plate 1. Then, the upper cover 2 is pivoted to the to the outermost lateral walls 15 of the holding plate 1 by means of passing pivotal pins 6 through the through holes 23 and the pivotal holes 17 so that it can movably cover upper sections of the containing rooms 11. And, the lower cover 3 is detachably joined to the lower portion of the holding plate 1 with the engaging hooks 32 being inserted into the connecting holes 16 of the holding plate 1.

[0023] The upper cover 2 is opened, and the insertion ends 42 of the securing belts 4 separated from the fixing portions 41 so that the winch can be taken out from the packing box for use or inspection.

[0024] In addition, tags and written description of the winch 5 are fastened to the covers 2, and 3.

[0025] Referring to FIG. 7, the packing box can be formed with as many containing rooms as desired by the manufacturers according to a second embodiment of the present invention.

[0026] In a third embodiment of the invention, referring to FIGS. 8, and 9, the upper cover 2 of the first embodiment is formed with engaging hooks instead of the through holes 23 on the lateral portions 22 thereof, and the upper portions of the outermost lateral walls 15 are formed with connecting holes 16; thus, the upper cover 2 can be detachably joined to the holding plate 1 with the engaging hooks thereof being inserted into the upper through holes 16, similar to the lower cover 3.

[0027] From the above description, it can be easily understood that the packing box of the present invention has advantages as followings:

[0028] 1. The winch can be easily taken out from, and put back into, the packing box without possibility of damage being caused to the same.

[0029] 2. It is convenient for customers to take out the winch product from the packing box for trial or inspection. Therefore, the customers can know very well about the product, and understand its performance so that they can readily decide whether or not to buy the product.
