Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9916337A1] A false front cartridge for covering a container (12) to provide the container with an aesthetically pleasing appearance is disclosed. The false front cartridge includes a housing (28) configured to fully cover the front surface (26) of the container. The housing includes a cavity (30) into which product (14) can be placed and a transparent front wall permitting a consumer to view product stored within the housing. The false front cartridge also includes means for selectively securing the housing adjacent the container. In use, the false front cartridge allows consumers to view the real product stored within the container, without viewing the actual product and container from which the purchase will be made.
