Abstract

See full text

A unitary container for storing and dispensing chain includes a box-shaped chain holder portion having a continuous top edge adapted for interlocking receipt of a selectively removable lid, a bottom wall, and first and second pairs of opposed side walls which extend between and connect the open top edge and the bottom wall. The container also includes a lid adapted for selectively easily removable attachment to the continuous open top edge of the chain holder position. The lid has an integral chain dispensing and retaining portion to permit access to and removal from the chain holder portion through the lid of desired lengths of chain, and is formed so as to deter chain removed from the chain holder from unintentionally slipping thereinto.
