Figure 11 is a transverse section taken through the same on the line 1111 of Figure 10, and Figure 12 is a horizontal section taken through the lower end of the container, showing a modified construction of ledge.
Referring now to the drawings, and first to the construction shown in Figures 1 to 4, the holder comprises a container body 10 which is fiat and has a back wall 11 adapted to lie fiat against a wall or other vertical support, the container body 10 being open at its upper end and the back wall 11 thereof extending below the bottom wall 12 for a considerable distance. The container body 10 is proportioned as to width, thickness and depth to receive a desired number of razor blades, and the body 10 may be divided into compartments by one or more partitions 13 extending at suitable points between the front and back walls of the container ing new blades, while the larger compartment 6 may receive therein the used blades. The upper open end of the container body may be closed by a cover 14, and this cover may comprise a flat narrow strip of material adapted to extend over the open end of the container body and which may have one or more slots 15 therein to register with one or both of the compartments. This strip or cover 14 is held to the container body 10 by arms 16 which may be turned down from the opposite ends of the strip and which lie fiat against the opposite narrow ends of the container body 10 and are pivotally held thereto by rivets 1'7 or the like. The rivets 1'7 are so placed on the container body 10 that the cover 14 may swing into and out of closed position as shown in Figures 2 and 3. If desired, the cover 14 may have a front stop or apron 18 which consists of an extension bent down from the front edge of the cover 14 and extending between the arms 16. This stop 18 engages at its inner side fiat against the front wall of the container body 10 when the cover 14 is raised into closed position to insure the proper register of the cover 14 with the open top of the container body and the lower edge of the stop 18 engages the front wall of the container body when the cover is swung outwardly and downwardly into open position to hold the cover in position for ready closing by pressure of the fingers upwardly against the outer edge of the cover 14. i
The back wall 11 of the container body may have a hook or projection 19 stamped. and pressed or offset therefrom for supporting the device against a wall as shown in Figures 2 and 3, and the wall 11 may remain slightly spaced from the wall as shown, or may swing inwardly at its lower end under its own weight and the weight of the articles in the holder.
The lower end of the back wall 11 is bent outwardly into substantially a horizontal position to provide a ledge 20 spaced below the container body a distance suitable to admit positioning and removal of articles relative to the ledge 20. This ledge 20 may be of any suitable cross sectional shape, such as curved or arched downwardly as shown in Figures 1 to 4, and is of a width substantially equal to the width of a safety razor head 21, so that the latter may rest on the ledge 20 with one edge against the back wall 11, and the ledge 20 has an upturned flange 22 at its outer edge which engages the outer edge of the razor head 21, as shown in Figures 1 and 2 to hold the safety razor from shifting and to protect the opposite edges of the razor. head and the blade which may be mounted therein.
The ledge 20 has an intermediate opening 23 for the depending shank 24 of. the safety razor, the handle 25 of the razor hanging beneath the holder or support in position of easy access and the ledge 20 also having an entrance slot 26 leading from the opening 23 through the front edge of the ledge, as shown in Figures 1 to 4. The ledge 20 may also have one or more openings or slots 2'7 therein for receiving shanks or intermediate portions of other articles to be 'hung on the ledge, such as a shaving brush 28 as shown.
In use, the holder is mounted against a wall, a door, or other suitable vertical support, by means of the hook 19 or other device on the back wall 11. Normally the cover 14 is closed or in raised position as shown in Figures 1 and 2. Used razor bladesv may be inserted through a slot 15 in the cover and thus deposited in the corresponding compartment in the container body 10. The larger compartment may be for used razor blades while the other compartment may accommodate new blades.
The shaving brush 28 may be suspended through the opening 27 of the ledge 20 so that the bunch of bristles of the brush may hang down and dry out without rusting the ledge and other parts of the holder. The safety razor is hung on the ledge 20 with the head 21 resting lengthwise on the ledge and with its opposite edges housed respectively against the back wall 11 and the front ledge flange 22. The shank 24 of the razor extends through the opening 23 and the handle 25 hangs in position of easy access when it is desired to use the razor.
The flange 22, as shown particularly in Figure 2, is of sufiicient height to cover and protect the adjacent edge of the razor head 21 and the edge of the blade when mounted in the head. Thus the user cannot strike his hand against an exposed edge when using the holder and when removing the razor therefrom. In removing the razor it is only necessary to grasp the handle 25 of the razor, lift the razor slightly to free it from the flange 22, and then to draw the raised razor outwardly from the ledge. In replacing the razor, the shank is brought into line with the slot 26 and moved backwardly therein until the rear edge of the razor head strikes the back wall 11. The razor is thus securely held from accidental displacement should the holder be jarred, and the hand and objects brought into proximity to the razor cannot be cut by or brought into contact with a substantial portion of the razor blade.
In the modification shown in Figures 5, 6 and '7, the cover 29 has no front apron as in the form of Figures 1 to 4, and the end arms 30 are forwardly directed at their pivot ends and are secured to the end walls of the container body 10 by rivets 31 which are disposed toward the front of the body to not only facilitate the opening of the cover 29, but to admitthe close fitting or seating of-the cover on the upper edge of the container body. This seating of the cover 29 limits the backward movement thereof during the closing operation. The covers 14 and 29 may be swung down into open position for gaining access to the compartments in the container body and for removing the blades therefrom, particularly when the holder is removed from the support and overturned.
As shown in Figures 6 and 7, the ledge 32 may be modified by providing a flat or straight bottom wall and an outer flange 33 which is opposed to the lower end of the back wall 11 for protecting the opposite edges of the razor head 21, and the flange 33 may not only be upturned, but also curved backwardly, as shown particularly in Figure 6, to embrace or overhang the outer edge of the razor head and hold it from rising out of its seat. The opening 34 for the shank 24 of the razor leads by a slot 35 through the adjacent end of the ledge 32. The razor is moved endwise onto the ledge 32 in this form of the holder and is removed by merely sliding the handle 25 with the head 21 in an edgewise direction out of the holder.
There are numerous ways in which the container may be suspended against a wall or support other than the hook 19. The wall may have an opening or depression therein to accommodate the hook 19 so that the device may lie flush against the wall, the present illustration merely being to show a means of suspension.
With reference to the modification shown in Figure 8, the container body 10 is provided with a rest at its upper edge portion to accommodate the depending flange or apron 36 carried on the front of the cover 3'7. The cover 37 and the apron 36 may be of one-piece angle construction, the strip 37 adapted to lie across the upper edge of the container and is held pivotally to the container by the end arms 38 connected by of the container and receiving therein outtumed flanges 41 disposed along the front and rear edges of an upwardly dished cap 42 providing a hood which extends lengthwise of the container and provides a continuation thereof. The upper part of the hood 42 may be grasped by the fingers and slid into and out of closed position over the container.
In Figure 10 is shown another slight modification wherein the container body l0 has its guides or tracks 40, as shown in Figure 9, but instead of the hooded enclosure 42, a slide or plate 43 is fitted in the guides 40 and lies flat across the upper edge of the container. The position of the slide 43 is shown in Figure 11 where it effectively closes the upper end of the container 10.
In Figure 12 is shown a modified form of ledge or flange 44 which is turned outwardly from the back wall of the container 10, as shown in Figures 1 and 7, and which is provided with an upturned front flange 33 and the endwise opening slot 35 shown in Figure '7. In addition, however, the opposite end of the ledge 44 is provided with a brush receiving slot 45 which opensv through the opposite end of the ledge so that the shaving brush 28 could be introduced into and out of its socket opening by movement toward and from the opposite end of the device.
With this construction of ledge the outer upwardly rolled flange 33 may be left uninterrupted throughout the width of the holder and any objections as to projecting corners or edges at the front of the holder is overcome.
It is obvious thatvarious changes and modiflcatlons may be made in the details of construction and design of the above specifically describedv embodiment of this invention without departing from the spirit thereof, such changes and modifications being restricted only by the scope of the following claims:--
