However, the ordinary tooth brush holders such as'commonly Eff-l patron does notlike to support his tooth brush onaholder which may have been used by a large -"number of previous occupants of the room. Ho- -tels have thus not usually provided any holder 'for the tooth brush,- insipite of the fact that such 215a holder is quite desirable and a great con- Venience .;L:.
It is an object df -this' invention, therefore, to provide a holderfor atoothbrush or other im- 7320 ture and which will be entirely sanitary, so that the patron will have-no hesitancy in placing his tooth brush thereon during his stay at the hotel.
" It isa furtherobject-of the invention to provide a tooth brushholderhavin'g a removable and .135; replaceable-member thereonwhich may prefer- 3'ably, though not necessarily, be made of paper "the attendant of the room so that: a fresh memberca'n be used'. i
It'is more specifically an objectof the invention to provide a bracket having. a supporting portion which may be of plate-like formation, having an aperture ther'ethrough, a removable member carried 'bysaid portion whichxmay ex- =l Z tend over' or through said. aperture and which "itself is aperturedto receive a portion'of a tooth on said'member 'so that it will be kept ina clean and sanitary condition. The members are-made I so asto be easily'and cheaplyreplaced, and a new fresh member can thus be placed inthe holder "at i desired intervalsg' 1 description made in connection" with the: accompah'ying drawing-in which like reference characters refer to similar parts throughout the several views and in which:-
Fig. 1 is a perspective view showing one form of the invention with a tooth brush supported therein;
Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the replaceable member used, with a portion thereof broken away;
, 6 clai s. (Cl'.'24849) Fig. 3 is a top plan View of the member shown in Fig. 2;. Fig. 4. is a bottom plan view of the membe .shown in Fig. 2; It is desirable in hotellrooms, to have Fig. 5 is a perspective view of another form of 5 the invention; and
. Fig. 6 is a perspective view of the replaceable I i v member used in the form shown in Fig. 5. "used" inresidences, are objectionable, as the Referring to the drawing, in Fig. 1 a bracket 10 is shown, having a plate-like portion -1Qf65 adapted to be secured to the wall or other object,
/ v has formed therein a pair of openings 100 which plement, which is simple and 'efficient in strucare illustrated as elongated slots with rounded ends. A member 12 is provided, shown asin' the #15 form of a. flanged cup, the same having a body .portion 12a elliptical or oblong in horizontal cross tom portion 120 and the same has an opening andwhich can be easily and readily removed by 13 therethrough also shown as of elongated or oblong shape, with rounded ends.
In the use of the device shown in Figs. l to 4, the bracket .10 will be secured to the wallor lav- 5,35
atory fixture as desired, and will thus be permabe disposed in the openings 100 as. shown in the .left handend of Fig. 1. brush or implement'in such a positionthat the A; brush portion of the implement will be supported The tooth brush-14 could then have its handle portion passed into thecup 12 and through the opening 13 in the bottom thereof.
The bristle or brush portion 14a of the tooth brush will then project so as to rest on theflange 12b. The tooth brush is thus supported on the I member 12 and this member eanbe taken out by 3 These andotherobjects and advantages-of the Z1 45 inventionwill be fully set forthin the following the attendant looking after the rooms and anotherone readily placed'in position so that each 5100 day, or for each patron, therewill be a fresh and sanitary supporting member. It will thus not be necessary for the brush of the patron to come in contact with any member which has been engaged by the brush of a previous patron.:
In Figs. 5 and 6 a bracket 15 is shown having a plate-like portion 15a adapted to be secured to the wall or other support and having apertures therethrough for receiving the attaching screws 16. Said bracket has a projecting portion 15225110 may be made of paper such as stiff waterproof paper, is provided, and made or" a shape substantially the same as the portion 151). This member 17 has short intersecting slits 17a formedv therein shown as intersecting at right angles, and these slits are disposed over the openings 150.
In the use of the device shown in Figs. 5 and 6, the member 17 will be placed on the bracket and slipped under the tongues 15d so that it will be held in place against any lateral movement. The patron can take the tooth brush and push the handle portion down through members 17 at the intersection of the slits 17a. The brush will easily pass through the opening formed by the 1 slits and the brush will be pushed down until the bristle or brush portion rests on the member 1'7. The brush will thus be supported entirely by member'l'l and will not come in contact with any other part'of the support. The member 17 can be readily removed and replaced by a fresh member when desired. After a brush has been pushed through the slits 17a, portions of the member 17 adjacent the' slits will be depressed and bent so that the patron can readily tell if a fresh or entirely new member 17 is in place on the bracket 15.
From the above description it is seen that applicant has provided a very simple and efiicient holder for a tooth brush or similar article and one which has a high degree of utility for the purpose intended.
