Nov. 25, 1952 F A SHARRER ROLL TOILET PAPER HOLDER Filed May 1, 1951 Patented Nov. 25, 1952 UNITED STATES PATENT. OFFICE" ROLL TOILET PAPER HOLDER Frank A. Sharrer, Bakerstown, Pa.

Application May 1, 1951, Serial No. 223,891

1 Claim. '1 This invention relates to a roll toilet paper holder, and important objects .and advantages thereof are to provide a holder of the character described, which is constructed to simultaneously support a dispensing roll and a supplemental reserve roll, which will hold the reserve .roll inaccessible to the user as long as any part of the dispensing roll is in the dispensing position, which will prevent the unauthorized removal of the rolls therefrom, and which will prevent the rotation of the rolls thereon to conserve the use of the paper.

Further objects of the invention are to provide a fixture of the class stated, which .is simple in .its construction and arrangement, durable and compact, attractive in appearance, and com paratively economical in its manufacture and use.

With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in. the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts herein specifically described, but it isto be understood that changes in the form, proportions and details of construction may be resorted to that come within the scope of the claim hereunto appended.

In the drawing wherein like numerals of reference designate corresponding parts throughout the several views:

Figure 1 is a top plan view of a roll toilet paper holder constructed in accordance with the invention.

Figure 2 is a front elevational view of the roll toilet paper holder with the dispensing roll and the reverse roll mounted thereon.

Figure 3 is a transverse cross sectional view taken on line 33, Figure 2.

Figure 4 is a gate end view of the holder.

Figure 5 is a fragmentary front view illustrating the attachment of the retaining band with the frame structure.

Referring in detail to the drawing, the improved roll toilet paper holder comprises an oblong, rectangularly-shaped frame I, which may be constructed of any suitable, comparatively wide, rigid strap material. When secured in position for use against a supporting surface, the frame is preferably disposed horizontally, with the strap material extending vertically edgewise.

The frame I consists of a back member 2, a parallel disposed front member 3, a fixed end member formed integral with respective adjacent ends of the back and front members 2, 3, and a gate end member 5 which has its rearward end attached to the free end of the back anember by means of an inwardly disposed hinge The free end of the front member 3 is formed with a projecting apertured lug .I for extension through a vertically extending slot '8 which .is provided therefor in the free end portion of :the gate end member 5. A look 9 is engaged in the apertured lug for securing the free end of the end gate member to the free end of the front member.

The back member 2 is provided with a pair of elongated, horizontally extending slots M, which are aligned in spaced relation to each other. The slots ID are provided for the reception .of screws I3 by which the holder device may be adjustably fixed in position against its supporting surface.

The improved holder is designed and intended tosupport a reserve roll M .of toilet .paper zand'a dispensing roll l5 of toilet paper at the same time. The rolls l4 and I5 are mounted side by side on the front member 3, with the .reserve roll being disposed against the fixed end wall member 4, and with the dispensing roll being disposed toward the gate end 5 of the holder structure. As the front member is constructed of flat strap material, it is, of course, necessary to compress the rolls into oval-shape in order to pass the passage cores of the rolls onto the front member 3.

It will be apparent that the ovately distorted rolls [4 and I5, when mounted on the fiat front member 3 of the frame I, cannot be rotated on said front member, and that to remove any of the paper from a roll it is necessary to manually unwrap the paper from a stationary roll to obtain the quantity desired. Such efiort will obviously conserve the use of the paper by discouraging the propensity to waste the paper as frequently occurs when the toilet paper may be readily unreeled from a freely rotating roll mounted on a holder of the conventional type.

A forwardly projecting retaining band H is supported by the frame I, and surrounds the front member 3 and also the mounted reserve roll M at a position centrally intermediate of the ends of the latter. The retaining band is open and the ends thereof are provided with elongated slots I2. The slotted ends of the retaining band overlap each other and are adjustably secured against the inner face of the back member 2 by the adjacent screw l3, as clearly illustrated in Figure 5. Such attachment of the retaining band allows the latter to be adjusted to conform to the size of the reserve roll [4 in a manner permitting said reserve roll to be shifted on the front member from the reserve position under the retaining band to the dispensing position against the gate end of the frame I.

It will be evident that no toilet paper can be removed from the reserve roll It so long as the latter is surrounded by the retaining band i l, and that the reserve roll l4 cannot be shifted on the front member 3 to clear said retaining band until the dispensing roll I5 has been completely depleted and all parts thereof removed from the front member 3. By this arrangement and operation, it is necessary to first use and remove all of the dispensing roll I5 from the front member 3 before the reserve roll [4 can be shifted to clear the retaining band by moving same to th dispensing position on the front member 3.

To mount the reserve roll I4 and the dispensing roll IS in their proper relative positions on the front member 3 of the frame I, it is necessary to release the gate end member 5 by removing the lock 9 from th apertured lug 1. After the rolls have been mounted on the front member, the gate end member is secured to the latter by replacing the lock on said apertured lug. As the improved holder is primarily intended for public use, such locking arrangement will prevent the removal of the rolls therefrom by unauthorized persons.

In the use of the improved holder, the paper may be unwrapped for use from the dispensing roll I5 which is in the dispensing position at the gate end of the front member 3, and only after said dispensing roll has been completely depleted can the reserve roll be shifted on the front member to position same in the dispensing position for use.

While the invention is herein illustrated and described as carrying but one reserve roll, it is to be understood that the holder may be constructed to hold two or more reserve rolls at the same time, by suitably lengthening the frame structure and providing the necessary retaining bands so spaced as to prevent any of the reserve rolls from clearing the retaining bands until the reserv roll has been shifted to the dispensing position on the front member of the frame.

The present invention provides a most efiicient device of its kind, which may be economically manufactured and employed, and successfully and conveniently used for the purposes and in the manner herein set forth.

What I claim is:

A holder for supporting a dispensing roll of toilet paper and a reserve roll of toilet paper, comprising a back member provided with a pair of horizontally aligned elongated slots for the reception of a pair of screws adjustably securing the device to a supporting surface, a front member disposed parallel to said back member and spaced from the latter, a fixed end member formed integral with one end of said back member and with the adjacent end of said front member, a gate end member hingedly connected with the free end of said back member and being provided with a slot, all of said members being constructed of flat strap material extending vertically edgewise, the dispensing roll and the reserve roll being slidably mounted on said front member by passing the latter through the core passages of the rolls after the latter have been compressed to ovalshape to prevent the rotation of th rolls on said front member, a forwardly projecting open retaining band surrounding the reserve roll centrally intermediate of the end of the latter to prevent the removal of paper from the reserve roll, the ends of said band overlapping each other and being respectively provided with elongated registering slots for the passage of one of said pair of screws for adjustably attaching said band against said back member to surround said front member and the reserve roll mounted on said front member, an apertured lug formed at the free end of said front member and projecting through the slot in said gate end member, and removable means engaged in said apertured lug for locking the latter in said end gate member.
