Abstract

See full text

An apparatus having the dual capability both as a transporting and storage apparatus and a dereeling apparatus for wire wound on a spool. The apparatus comprises a container having an annular rib on its lower inner surface which engages a groove disposed in the bottom flange of the spool received therein to secure the spool against radial and axial movement during normal use. The cover for the container is movable between a closed position and a dereeling position wherein the cover top surface is disposed above the spool upper flange a predetermined distance. The cover has upper and lower detents for removably securing it in its closed and dereeling positions, respectively, on the container. The container bottom has a hole therein and the cover has a locating boss disposed on its top surface in axial alignment with the bottom hole so that the locating boss is receivable within the arbor-receiving hole of a spool in a like apparatus stacked thereon. The locating boss serves to guide the arbor-receiving hole thereon and to maintain the apparatuses in stacked storage. A guide member is removably inserted within the locating boss and has an aperture therein through which the wire wound on the spool is dereeled. The guide member is preferably made of a plastic member to reduce any wear on the wire when it is dereeled. As described, the apparatus of the present invention is reusable for transporting, storing and dereeling other wire-wound spools.
