Collapsible container
Afflerbach et al of Pacific Bin Corporation, Washington, developed a collapsible container for liquid and/or solid/liquid mixtures, to be assembled and disassembled manually without the use of tools.  The container includes upright panels coupled to a base.  Each panel of a first type is flanked along its opposing upright edges by a pair of adjacent panels of a second type. Each of the edges of each of the panels is coupled by an edge joining assembly to one of the edges of one of the flanking panels. The assembly comprises a first elongated edge joining member having a longitudinal channel with alternating partially enclosed portions and substantially unenclosed portions and a second elongated edge joining member having longitudinally extending spaced apart locking members. Each unenclosed portion is configured to receive a locking member, which are slid longitudinally within the channel into an adjacent partially enclosed portion. (RDC 7/5/2012)
