Description  (OCR text may contain errors)


This invention relates to certain improvements in the use of deodorants for toilet bowls and has relation more particularly as an attachment therefor; and the object of the invention is to provide a device of this general character wherein is afiorded an effective means for maintaining a deodorant container under the fiushing rim of a toilet bowl without adjustment and in a manner of easy access for replenishing the'deodorant.

The invention consiste in the details of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts of my improved deodorant container for toilet bowls, wherein certain important advantages are attained and the device is rendered simpler,

less expensive and otherwise more convenient and advantageous for use.

I attain these objects by the formations illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which,

Figure 1 shows a vertical front view of the container; Figure 2 is a detailed view in perspective, of the container showing its position when attached to the flushing rim of a toilet bowl. Similar numerals refer to similar partsthroughout the two views.

Numeral 1 is a cros&section of a flushing rim of a toilet bowl; 2 is a. formation of spring wire, of which 33 areclamp members; 4 is a three-sided, one piece receptacle having loose fitting ends and perforations to receive eyelets 6; is a strap.

The assembled construction consists of the wire formation 2 fastened to the receptacle 4 by means of strap 5 and eyelets 6, or other suitable means, in such position that when the device is clamped to the fiushing rim of a toilet bowl, the receptacle Will be held under and against the bottom of the fiushing rim of the toilet bowl by the wire formation.

A novel feature of the invention is the manner in which the device is attached to the toilet bowl rim. This is accomplished b-y r compressing the clamps 3-3 toward each other, in which position, the distance between points 77 of the wire formation and the top of the receptacle 8-8, is at its maximum and permits points 77 of the wire formation to pass over the top of the toilet bowl rim and permits the top of the receptacle 88 topass under the toilet bowl rim, so that when the tension on clamps 3-3 is released, the lateral expansion of the clamps draws the receptacle up under the rim of the toilet bowl and holds the device in position by ressure on top and bottom of the rim of t1e toilet bowl.

taining a deodorizing compound compressed into a block t0 fit the receptacle, the deodorizing materitl, being so compounded as to form a gas heavier than air, the gas, so formed, remains in the toilet bowl until, dissipated 'by flushing, it becomes mixed With other odors and destroys or nutralizes them.

I claim:

A deodorant container for use in a toilet V bowl comprising a receptacle having a bottom and side walls for receiving a block of deodorant material, means for mounting said receptacle within the space formed by the inner overhang of the rim of a toilet bowl comprising a pair of spring wires secured to the receptacle, said wires extending upwardly along the outer side of the receptacle and then outwardly and upwardly in arcs converging in opposite directions, said wires 139- A WALTER s.
