Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0348787A2] The invention relates to containers suitable for stacking and latching in the stacked position, which containers can be stacked and latched in vertical alignment or in vertically offset positions. Each container (2) has at least one bottom (3) and two side walls (4). The latching is effected via corresponding latching devices which are effective between two side walls (4) located one above the other. Provided on each side edge (8) of the bottoms (3) of the containers (2) is a groove (10) which extends in the direction of the side edges (8) and is open towards the outside. Each side wall (4) has an inwardly angled strip section (12) on its top edge (14) which strip section is displaceable in a sliding manner in the groove (10) of the container (2) above it. The relative position between the groove (10) and the strip section (12) can be fixed by the latching devices (7). <IMAGE>
