Abstract

Disclosed is a one piece molded plastic container for holding a fuser roll for shipment. As shown in Figure 1, container 10 consists of two halves 12 and 14 with a nesting configuration for fuser roll 16. The two halves 12 and 14 are connected by a molded hinge 18 and each of the two halves 12 and 14 have a "L" shaped edge 24. When container 10 closes, as shown in Figure 2, the "L" shaped edges 24 butt together forming a "T" shaped lip. A clip 22 crimps over the lip to secure container 10 in the closed configuration.
