Oct. 21, 1930. J. A. HOEGGER HOLDER FOR ROLLED )'APER 'Filed Sept. 24, 1925 Patented Oct. 21, 1930 TED STS mass@ JSEPEA. vnoEeGfEa'o*E JERSEY CITY, NEW JERsEY Vn cmDER FOR lRorJiEn PAPER! Applicatpionmea septem'ter inventionVVK relates to limprovements in holders yfor paper whichcomes in rolls, such, for example, as toilet paper, paper toweling,
or wrapping paper. kThe invention is useful o 5 for holding any paper which comes'inrol-led roll," which locksv automatically, and more especially to'provide means. whereby thev paper roll can `be turnedto sa limited extent in either direction'. This is an important mat@ ter. Heretoforethepaper holders for'this purpose have lpermitted the paperto turnin one. direction only before the unrolling jhas been checked, and oftenthe vroll would be put on the wrong way,so that the use ofthe` paperv in my deviceatgmakes'nouiffereaeepwhich way the roll is applied ltothe holder element Y as the latter turns in either direction, is spring returned to 'normalpo'sition and-'has an abutment limiting the movement' either Lway.l
Further objects of my invention are to pro-Y vide a simple and"effectivermeansffor carrying the aboveidea into effect.

i features -oi'fimy invention can be supported in any convenient way, but as these holders are more or 'less conspicuous 1t 1s desirable to f yhave them" nicely arranged and of attractive ltherefore prefer to vuse supporting posts 10 and 11 Which'fcan be attached to-an.` adja spaced relation, and in any convenient way, but vpreferably by concealed Vfasteners, 'altliough'this'is nota feature of my present invention. f

The outer portion ofthe rod'19 is reduced as frame 2 2 which is usually afthin-openwork frame having taperedQ endsv v23 Aand 24,'tlie latterV being for thepurpose of facilitating.

swung into closed position the latch Will auspring and then outward into locking en- `and returned to such positionV gagement With the head'la.
The bushing 29 is projected Well'into the frame 22l and anenlargement 32 of the sliding latch 3GY abuts with the inner end of theV bushing and can be grasped and pushed to# Ward the hinge of the member 22,*that is,to
Ward the po-st l0 When the latch 30 is to be released,
but it Will be seen thatl the head 32 is so far Within the frame 22 that it cannot be reached when arroll of paper'is onthe frame and thus stealing of thepaper is obf viated. Ji
'The outerportion of thelatch 30 is chambered as shown at 83 and a spring 34 is arranged between the reduced endportion 21 of the rodf19 andthe end ofthe latch,v and thus the latch is pressed into'locking position. i The frame 22 is held in .normal position after being operated to release paper by 'a Vspring 35 which is made in tivo separated coils 35 and 35d encircling theirod 19fwithin the chamber V27, andthe separate coil portions of the e springar'e Vkept apart bya collar 85b on the rod 19.*- The outer end ofthe kspring is held an abutment pin 36 onthe inner end of the rod 19, andthe innerend ofthe spring isheld in abutment Witha pin 37 (see Figure 2) Whilethe middle portions are formedinto loops engaging the Ypin 39 on the frame 22 and the two coilfportions of the springl are disposed sotliat ivhen thefframe is turned one spring acts toreturn itif the movement is in oneldirection VWhilvethe` opposite coil isv Y of opposite tension.
Obviously 4the springsfmight be indepen dent With the same result and the invention contemplates any suitable in either direction.
Likewise various stopsv or i abutments for limiting the movementV ofthe frame 22'in g eitherpdirection can be used, but Iliave il,- lustrated .and Will 4describe a double-acting stop Whichivorlispwith n t pposite thel Wall28 of the chamber 27 1s a Y collar 40 Whichturns on the rod 19 and acts asgapavvl or abutment vfor'v the purpose de-' scribed. On the outer end of this collar is a tooth '41, both sides of which are adapted to, alternately engagev aV pin42 on the rod 19-v and the` pin serves halso to, `position .the collar and the` inner end of the frame K between itself 22. Y
` On the opposite end of thecollar is; a tooth 43 which is shown clearly by dotted lines in the Wa-llg28 of the fframe.- l
Y locks automatically when the Vspaced posts n outerends, the headof one y.post having a Y arod secured in the p arrangement Which Willbe doubleacting and vvilltend to i hinged to 'y the i rotatable entirey satisfaction. 3
