SANITARY SHIELD FOR TOILET SEATS Filed NOV. 12, 1928 IN VEN TOR.

ATTORNEY.

Patented June 3, 1930 UNITED STATES CLARA F. HABITS, OF KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI SANITARY SHIELD FOR TOILET SEATS Application filed November 12, 1928. Serial No. 318,610.

This invention relates to sanitary shield for toilet seats and has for its main object the provision of a shield that effectually covers that portion of the seat which might naturally come in contact with the body of the user, thereby protecting the user from possible contagion and the discomfort of coming in direct contact with the seat.

A further object of the present invention is the provision of a sanitary seat shield made of a single sheet of material which will cover the front edge of the opening in the toilet seat and at the same time not materially interfere with the area of said opening.

Another object of this invention is the contemplation of a shield provided with flaps whereby the user will be able to position the cover on the toilet seat without having his hands come in contact therewith.

With these general objects in view as well as minor objects which will appear during the course of the detailed specification, reference will now be made to the accompanying drawing in which:

Figure 1, is a perspective view of a portion of a toilet on which is positioned a sanitary seat shield embodying this invention;

Fig. 2, is an enlarged sectional view taken on line 11-11 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 3, is a plan view. of the sanitary seat shield;

Fig. 4, is a plan view of a modified form of the seat shield; and

Fig. 5, is a plan view of another modified form of a seat shield.

Similar references characters designate like parts throughout the several views and 10 designates a body portion made of paper or any other suitable materialwhich may be treated with any sterilizing or antiseptic agent. This body-portion is made to conform substantially to the shape of the seat, and while an oval form of the blank has been shown yet it is apparent that any other shaped cover might be provided.

An opening 11 in the body portion 10 is provided which conforms to the opening in the toilet seat S. Body portion 10 is provided adjacent its front portion, with an inwardly extending flap 12 which is adaptedv to cover the front inner edge of the seat opening and to be folded underneath the seat.

It is the desire that a large portion of the inner edge of the seat covered in order to properly shield the user, and at the same time the cover must not materially interfere with or restrict the area of the seat "opening. The opening in the toilet seat is usually elliptical in shape and when a wide flap of the ordinary type is used the flap is bent on a straight line connecting the angles formed by the junctions of the outer edge of the seat opening with the outer edges of the flap, thereby causing a portion of the cover to extend horizontally over that section of the elliptical seat opening which is subtended by the straight line or cord on which the cover bends. This covering of a portion of the seat opening which is very objectional is reduced to a minimum in the present invention. To obviate the objection as stated above the outer portions of flap 12 are partially separated from body portion 10 by outwardly converging slits 13 which may be curved to conform to the contour of the opening 0 thus leaving a narrow neck 14: by means .of which flap 12 is secured to the body portion. With this narrow neck of attachment of the flap 12, it is very evident that the segment which overlaps the opening 0 is greatly reduced and the outer portions of the flap 12 will be free to conform to the curvature of the seat opening. Intermediate the slits 13 and the inner end of the flap 12 oppositely disposed slits 15 are formed in said flap thereby forming oppositely disposed tabs 16 carried by flap 12 and of a width substantially the thickness of the seat member, thus facilitating the proper covering of the front inner rim of the seatand at the same time permitting the easy folding of fiap 12 over said rim and underneath the seat without covering too much of the seat openin The body portion 10 is provided with in- O wardly extending tabs 17 which serve, when bent downwardly, to secure the cover in position against accidental transverse movezThese. tabs 20 which will normally extend outwardly from the seat at opposite sides thereof, serve as hand-Holds by means of which the shield may be removed from the seat. Tabs 20 are so positioned that it is practically impossible for the users hands, while removing the shield, to come in contact with any part of the seat or with any part of the, shield that has been in contact with the users body. Flaps 18 may be placedat an position on the body portion 10 but in or er that a minimum amount of material may be used in the manufacture of the shield these flaps are preferably so positioned that' the entire cover may be stamped from a rectangular piece of paper the sides of which are tangent to the elliptical blank 10.

Modified form as shown in Fig. 4, provides for the cutting .away of a portion of flap 12 thereby forming a narrowed end portion for folding beneath the toilet seat. The tabs 16 are similar to tabs 16 and cover a portion of the inner edge of the seat. The flaps 18' are positioned farther back than fia s 18 but serve the same purpose.

ig. 5, shows a modified form having a flap 12", tabs 16" and an outwardly projecting flap 18" which is positioned at the rear of the shield and serves as a hand-hold for removing the shield from the seat. The internal flaps 17 are positioned adjacent the flaps 12 and serve to secure the shield in Iproper operative position.

do not wish to limit this invention to the structure shown and described as many modifications may be made within the scope of the appended claims without departing from the spirit thereof.

What I claim is:

,1. A toilet seat shield comprisin a body portion having an opening adapte to substantially register with toilet seat opening, an inwardly extending flap adjacent the front portion of said body portion having a narrow neck by means of which it is connected with the body portion, oppositely disposed flaps formed 1n said inwardly extending flap, adapted to shield a portion of the edge of said seat opening, and outwardly extending flaps having tabs formed therein.

2. A toilet seat shield made of a single sheet of flexible material and comprising a body portion havin an opening adapted to substantially reglster with the opening in the toilet seat, an inwardly extending 'toilet seat, an inwardly extendin flap, adjacent the front of said body portion adapted to be folded beneath the toilet seat, oppositely disposed flaps carried by tabs integral with said bod portion adapt- I ed to be turned downward y to engage the inner edges of the toilet seat to prevent transverse movement of the shield.

3. A toilet seat shield comprising a body portion having an opening adapted to substantially register with the opening in the toilet seat, a flap integral with said body portion extending into the opening in said blank, a neck narrower than the body portion of said flap connecting said flap with said body portion and oppositely disposed slits formed in opposite edges of said flap intermediate its inner and outer ends.

4. A toilet seat shield comprising a body portion havin an opening adapted to substantially register with the openingl in tllle a a jacent the front portion of said body por tion having a narrow neck by means of which it is connected with the body portion of said shield, flaps formed on opposite sides of said inwardly extending flap adjacent said body portion of a width substantially equal to the thickness of saidctoilet seat.

In testimony whereof, I hereunto afiix my signature.

- CLARA F. HARRIS.
