CHILDREN'S PORTABLE TOILET SEAT Filed Oct. 16; 1952 1N VEN TOR.

Sli

Thisvlinvention relates toimprovements in childrens portable toilet seats.

One. of the objects ofthis invention is to provide an improved childs portable toilet seat which may, be readily inflated and'deflatedand wheninflated may be readily secured to a conventional toilet seat for supporting .a young child.

Another, object of this invention is to provide an'inexpensive inflatable portable toilet seat and connecting back support which are simultaneously inflatable and when attached to a standard toilet seat provide a cushioned seat and cushioned back for the child and safely retains the child in the seat against accidental unseating.

Another object of this invention is to provide an improved inflatable portable toilet seat for use by children which may be readily attached to a conventional toilet seat which is formed of a flexible plastic material such as vinyl or the like, which when collapsed requires very little space and which may be readily cleaned and kept sanitary.

I am aware that various attempts have been made to provide portable toilet seats for use by children which are attached to standard toilet seats, however such prior constructions have been made of cloth or fabric which are positioned on the seat and secured thereto. However, they have been unsatisfactory for several reasons, namely they are not collapsible to the extent that they can be folded and packed into a small area such as a ladys handbag or coat pocket; they do not provide a cushioning surface either for the seat or back, and it is impossible to keep them clean and sanitary without considerable laundering.

It is therefore an object of this invention to provide a portable toilet seat which avoids all of the foregoing objectionable features and in turn provides an inflatable seat and back which forms a soft cushion for the child's seat and back, which may be collapsed and carried in a small space or placed in a packet which can fit into a ladys handbag, and which may be readiy cleaned by water or by a damp cloth in a minimum of time and with minimum effort.

Other objects become apparent as this description progresses.

In the drawings:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of portable collapsible toilet seat and back support attached and secured to a standard toilet seat.

Fig. 2 is a top plan view of my invention.

Fig. 3 is a view partly in cross-section taken on lines 3-3 of Fig. 2 and showing my improved seat and back support attached to a toilet seat.

Fig. 4 is a cross-sectional view taken on lines 4-4 of Fig. 3, showing the inflated ribs in the back support, and

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of a plastic container or packet containing my collapsible toilet seat and back support in deflated and collapsed position.

As shown in the drawings, my invention is positioned tes Patent on and attached to the conventional or standard toilet seat 10 of the usual toilet structure. The invention generally comprises an oval shaped inflatable seat 12 having a central opening 14 and an inflatable collapsible up right or back support 16. The term back support may include the sides of the support which extend forwardly of the back itself. The seat is formed of a plastic collapsible and airtight material such as vinyl or any similar material and has a wall-area 17 which is sealed as is well understood in the art to provide a continuous air pocket 18 into which air is introduced. In transverse cross section the top and bottom of theseat are substantially flat as best shown in Fig. 3.

The upright or back. support 16 is made of the same material as the seat and is connected thereto along the bottom rear and sides and communicates internally with the air pocket 18 of the seat so that same are inflated simultaneously. When inflated the upright or back. sup port extends upwardlyas shown. The upright or back extends forwardly. of the rear along the sides of. the seat to form .an inverted U shape in plan view. The opposite walls 19 and 20 of theupright orback support are sealed along the top and alsoalong rows of vertically spaced spots 22 which provide spaced air pockets 24, therebetween, each pocket assumes .an oval shape in cross section when inflated .and each row of air pockets in elfect form a plurality of spaced ribs along the back and sides of the upright support to increase the strength of the support. The air pockets 24 forming the vertical ribs communicate with the air pocket 18 of the seat. A conventional valve member 26 is secured to the upright support 16 and communicates with one of said air pockets 24 adjacent the top thereof, so that when air is introduced as by blowing into the valve, the air will simultaneously and rapidly inflate the upright support and seat.

Diagonally secured to the underside of the inflatable seat 12 are four straps or bands 28, 29, 3t and 31; the inner ends of each strap are adapted to be positioned around the conventional toilet seat It and are tied to the opposite end of the strap, as best shown in Fig. 3. The four straps when tied to the toilet seat are suflicient to securely fasten the inflatable seat to the standard toilet seat. A pair of straps 32 and 33 are secured to the upright support adjacent the front thereof, so that the straps may be tied as shown when the child is seated to prevent the child from falling off the seat.. It may be understood that other types of attaching means may be used in lieu of the foregoing.

After the device has been inflated, it may be kept in inflated condition ready for immediate use. However, in traveling the seat may be deflated by releasing the air through the valve 26 so that same may be collapsed to consume very little space. In its collapsible condition it may be folded to occupy very little space and carried in a ladys handbag or it may be readilyplaced into a small packet 34, such as shown in Fig. 5. The device may be readily and quickly cleaned merely by applying water to it or by wiping it with a damp cloth. I have thus provided a very simple, inexpensive portable inflating and deflatable toilet seat which may be readily at tached to a conventional toilet seat in a minimum of time and with minimum efiort and which may be readily and conveniently carried in a ladys handbag.

Also embraced within this invention is the provision of an inflatable and collapsible toilet seat without the back support.

It will be understood that various changes and modifications may be made from the foregoing without departing from the spirit and scope of the appended claims.
