Application February 17, 1944, Serial No. 522,778

1 Claim.

This invention relates to toilet paper roll holders of a generally similar nature to that constituting the subject matter of my United States Patent No. 2,327,816, issued August 24, 1943, upon which the present device constitutes an improvement.

An important object of the present invention is to provide a roll holder of the aforementioned character which embodies unique means for facilitating tearing off the paper in desired lengths.

Another very important object of the invention is to provide a holder of the character described which encloses and conceals the roll of paper and to which access may be readily had for loading the device.

Other objects of the invention are to provide a toilet paper roll holder which will be comparatively simple in construction, compact, durable, attractive in appearance and which may be manufactured at low cost.

The foregoing, and other objects and advantages of the invention, will become apparent from a study of the following specification, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, wherein like characters of reference designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, and wherein:

Figure 1 is a view in front elevation of a toilet paper roll holder constructed in accordance with the present invention.

Figure 2 is a view in rear elevation of the device.

Figure 3 is a bottom plan view with a portion of the device broken away.

Figure 4 is a vertical sectional view, taken substantially on the line 4-4 of Figure 1.

Figure 5 is a view in horizontal section, taken substantially on the line 55' of Figure 1.

Referring now to the drawings in detail, it will be seen that the embodiment of the present invention which has been illustrated comprises a substantially cylindrical container l of suitable material, preferably plastic. The cylindrical container I, which is open at its bottom, comprises a substantially dome-shaped integral top 2. Projecting from the rear of the container l are integral attaching brackets 3 for mounting the device on a wall or other support.

A removable bottom 4 is provided for the container I. The bottom 4, which is also preferably of plastic, has formed integrally thereon, adjacent its periphery, a plurality of hooks 5 which are engageable with inturned lugs or cars 6 in the open lower end of the container 1 for removably securing said bottom in position on said container. The bottom 4 further includes strengthening ribs 8. Finger-receiving openings 9 are provided in the bottom 4 to facilitate ascertaining approximately how much paper remains on the roll in the device without the necessity of removing said bottom.

Threadedly mounted in the bottom 4 and rising therefrom is a metalic spindle 10. A lock nut I l is provided for the spindle l0. A disc l2 on the lower portion of the spindle l0 rests on the lock nut II and supports a roll of paper l3 on said spindle. If desired, a core of wood or other material may be provided on the spindle ID for the roll of paper l3.

At an intermediate point, the container I has formed in its front a circular opening [4. A curved slot l5 extends from the opening I 4 to the open lower end of the container l. The Wall of the opening l4 includes a segmental toothed lip I6 for facilitating tearing off the paper.

It is thought that the manner in which the device is used will be readily apparent from a consideration of the foregoing. Briefly, to load the holder, the bottom 4 is removed. This is accomplished by simply rotating said bottom sufficiently to disengage the hooks 5 from the lugs or ears 6. The roll I3 is then mounted on the spindle ID. The roll I3 is then inserted upwardly in the container l as the bottom 4 is replaced and at the same time the free end portion of the paper is engaged in the opening l4 through the slot IS. The device is now ready for use. The exposed endportion of the paper, in substantially the form of a rope or strand, is pulled outwardly through the opening M to the desired length. The paper is then torn ofi by engaging same with the toothed portion l6 of the wall of the opening M. The toothed, projecting lip I6 causes the paper to be torn off or severed at a point in spaced relation to the container l Thus, enough of the paper on the roll will be left exposed to facilitate obtaining a grip thereon.

It is believed that the many advantages of a toilet paper roll holder constructed in accordance with the present invention will be readily understood, and although a preferred embodiment of the device is as illustrated and described, it

is to be understood that changes in the details of construction and in the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to which will fall within the scope of the invention as claimed.

What is claimed is:

A toilet paper roll holder comprising a container open at its bottom and closed at its top, means for mounting the container on a support, a bottom removably mounted on the container, a vertical spindle on the bottom engageable in a roll of paper, said container having a relatively small circular opening in one side thereof substantially midway between its top and bottom for the passage of the paper therethrough and further having a slot extending from the open bottom of said container to the opening for inserting the paper in said opening, and a substantially segmental, toothed tearing lip projecting from the container at the opening.
