Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention is related to a toilet cover and seat structure which can be easily disassembled/assembled for facilitating cleaning operation.
  • When cleaning a toilet bowl, a high-performance detergent is generally sprayed onto the toilet seat and toilet cover for cleaning the same. After cleaned, the toilet seat and toilet cover are washed with clean water.
  • The toilet seat, the toilet cover and the seat body of the toilet bowl contain many corners which are hard to clean. When washing the toilet bowl, these corners, a great amount of water is consumed for flushing these corners. Furthermore, when cleaning the toilet bowl, it is necessary to repeatedly turn the toilet cover and toilet seat. Such procedure is quite inconvenient.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • It is therefore a primary object of the present invention to provide a toilet cover and seat structure including a seat body mounted on a toilet bowl, a toilet cover and a toilet seat. A first connecting seat and a second connecting seat are pivotally connected with the seat body. The toilet cover is detachably connected with the first connecting seat. The toilet seat is also detachably connected with the second connecting seat, whereby the toilet cover and the toilet seat can be easily disassembled/assembled to facilitate cleaning of the toilet bowl.
  • It is a further object of the present invention to provide the above toilet cover and seat structure in which the toilet cover and toilet seat are replaceably and detachably connected with the seat body of the toilet bowl. When cleaning the toilet bowl, the toilet cover and the toilet seat can be easily disassembled and totally soaked into water and fully brushed. Therefore, the cleaning effect is enhanced. In addition, after washed, the toilet cover and the toilet seat can be sun-baked and disinfected outdoors. Accordingly, the consumption of detergent can be reduced.
  • According to the above objects, the toilet cover and seat structure of the present invention includes a seat body mounted on a toilet bowl, a toilet cover having at least one first connecting section and a toilet seat having at least one second connecting section. A first connecting seat and a second connecting seat are pivotally connected with the seat body. The first connecting section of the toilet cover is detachably connected with the first connecting seat. The second connecting section of the toilet seat is detachably connected with the second connecting seat.
  • The present invention can be best understood through the following description and accompanying drawings wherein:
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • FIG. 1 is a perspective exploded view of a first embodiment of the present invention;
  • FIG. 2 is a perspective assembled view of the first embodiment of the present invention;
  • FIG. 3 is a sectional view of the first embodiment of the present invention;
  • FIG. 4 is a perspective exploded view of the first embodiment of the present invention, showing that the toilet cover, toilet seat and seat body are disassembled from each other;
  • FIG. 5 is a sectional view of a second embodiment of the present invention; and
  • FIG. 6 is a sectional view of a third embodiment of the present invention.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • Please refer to FIGS. 1 to 3. The toilet cover and seat structure of the present invention includes a toilet cover 1 having at least one first connecting section 11. In this embodiment, the toilet cover 1 has two first connecting sections 11 which are two rod bodies.
  • The toilet cover and seat structure of the present invention further includes a toilet seat 2 having at least one second connecting section 21. In this embodiment, the toilet seat 2 has two second connecting sections 21 which are two rod bodies.
  • Each of the first and second connecting sections 11, 21 has a first end 111 and a second end 112 and a circumference 113 between the first and second ends 111, 112.
  • The toilet cover and seat structure of the present invention further includes a seat body 3 having two pivot seats 31. The two pivot seats 31 are symmetrically arranged on a connecting face 41 of one side of top face of the toilet bowl 4 and spaced by a predetermined distance.
  • A first connecting seat 32 and a second connecting seat 33 are pivotally disposed between the pivot seats 31 in parallel to each other. Two ends of the connecting seats 32, 33 are pivotally connected with the pivot seats 31 of the seat body 3. The distance between the first connecting seat 32 and the connecting face 41 of the toilet bowl 4 is larger than the distance between the second connecting seat 33 and the connecting face 41 of the toilet bowl 4.
  • The connecting seats 32, 33 are respectively formed with holes 321 corresponding to the first connecting sections 11 of the toilet cover 1 and the second connecting sections 21 of the toilet seat 2. The first and second connecting sections 11, 21 can be fitted into the holes 321 with the circumferences 113 of the first and second connecting sections 11, 21 tightly abutting against the walls of the holes 321.
  • When washing the toilet seat and cover structure of the present invention, the first connecting sections 11 of the toilet cover 1 are unplugged from the first connecting seat 32 of the seat body 3 and the second connecting sections 21 of the toilet seat 2 are unplugged from the second connecting seat 33 of the seat body 3.
  • Therefore, as shown in FIG. 4, the toilet seat 2 and toilet cover 1 as well as the seat body 3 can be fully cleaned to keep the toilet bowl 4 clean. In addition, a user can more conveniently and quickly wash the toilet cover 1 and toilet seat 2 to save water. After cleaned, the components can be reassembled.
  • FIG. 5 shows a second embodiment of the present invention, in which at least one protruding section 114 protrudes from the circumference 113 of each of the first and second connecting sections 11, 21. The first and second connecting seats 32, 33 are respectively formed with guide holes 322 corresponding to the first and second connecting sections 11, 21. Each guide hole 322 has a bottom 323, an opening 324 and a wall 325 between the bottom 323 and the opening 324. The guide hole 322 is further formed with a depression 326 adapted to the protruding section 114 of the connecting section 11, 21. The first connecting sections 11 of the toilet cover 1 are fitted into the guide holes 322 of the first connecting seat 32. The second connecting sections 32 of the toile seat 2 are fitted into the guide holes 322 of the second connecting seat 33. The protruding sections 114 of the connecting sections 11, 21 are engaged in the depressions 326 of the guide holes 322 of the connecting seats 32, 33.
  • FIG. 6 shows a third embodiment of the present invention, in which a pivot shaft 311 is passed through the symmetrical pivot seats 31 of the seat body 3 and positioned between the pivot seats 31. The first connecting seat 32 is pivoted on a middle section of the pivot shaft 311. The second connecting seat 33 has a first pivoted section 331 and a second pivoted section 332. The first and second pivoted sections 331, 332 are pivoted on the pivot shaft 311 with the first connecting seat 32 positioned between the first and second pivoted sections 331, 332.
  • The first connecting sections 11 of the toilet cover 1 are fitted in the holes 321 of the first connecting seat 32. The second connecting sections 21 of the toilet seat 2 are respectively fitted in the holes 321 of the two pivoted sections 331, 332 of the second connecting seat 33.
  • By means of the first and second connecting seats 32, 33 of the third embodiment of the present invention, the toilet cover 1 and the toilet seat 2 can be also disassembled for easy cleaning.
  • The above embodiments are only used to illustrate the present invention, not intended to limit the scope thereof. Many modifications of the above embodiments can be made without departing from the spirit of the present invention.
