msfftfli'; $3.25. an. Application June 8, 1934, Serial No. 729,581 6 Claim!- (Cl flit-55.2)

My invention relates to a paper roll holder ing is permitted to swing outwardly, as shown for toilet paper rolls and the like. by dotted lines.

The objects of my invention are: The housing is partially cylindrically shaped First, to provide a very compact holder of this to conform substantially to the paper roll class for enclosing the paper roll and one which placed therein, the cylindrical portion 2a Lying 6 is very simple and economical of construction; horizontally and the [back side 217 being open, Second, to provide a device of this class in with the upper portion and the side wallsic fltwhich the roll may be easily replaced, from which ting' against the outer sides of the flanges la. the paper may be easily withdrawn, and which The rear portion of the housing extends below 10 will not readily get out of order; the cylindrical portion, and the side walls of this 10 Third, to provide novel and simple means for portion plvotally support the housing on the rod. directing the free end of the paper downwardly The engaging portions of the upper flange in from the device; and and the housing are provided with interlocking Fourth, to provide novel means for mounting depressions lc and projections 2d, whereby the the holder so that it may be readily removed or housing may be snapped into and heldin a raised detached from the securing means for loading position. 4 V the holder with a new roll. On the inner sides of the side walls 2c are horiwith the above objects in view, I have devised zontal raised portions in which are horizontal v a paper roll holder having certain novel features slots 2e, at the forward, or inner ends thereof go of construction, as will be hereinafter described with respect to the housing. are notches or slight Q in detail and particularly set' forth in the'apdepressions 2/ which are positioned substantially pended claims, reference being had to the ac at the central portions of the side walls 20. The companying drawing which forms a part of this bottoms of the slots and depressions are prefapplication, and to like characters of reference erably flushwith the inner sides of the side walls 26 designating similar parts on the several views of 20. These depressions are oppositely positioned the drawing, in which: and are bearings for bearing pins la at the op- Fig. l is'a partial front elevation and partial posite ends of the roller 4' which supports the section of my paper roll holder in one form paper roll 5. when the housingis shifted about adapted for holding toilet paper, the sectional its pivotal axis to the position shown fragmen- 30 portion being taken on the line l-I ofFlg. 2; tarily by dotted lines, the roller may be readily Q,

At the lower ends of the lateral -7, th b k t or wall plate is omitted and the flanges are ears or journals lb through which housing 2 provided on the side walls 20, and adand the lower portions of the side walls of the iacent the rear edges, with laterally extending 55 housing extends a rod 1 about which the housears 0 having slots extending upwardly from u the lower edges for supporting the housing on screws, as shown by dotted lines.

In this modification, there is also provided at the lower end an additional rod I0, parallel to 5 the rod 3, and having thereon rollers H positioned preferably in engagement with the rollers 6, for feeding the paper downwardly.

Though I have shown and described a particular construction, and certain modifications thereof, I do not wish to be limited to this construction, nor to the modifications thereof,-but desire to include in the scope of my invention the construction, combination, and arrangement substantially as set forth in the appended claims.

I claim:

1. In a device of the class described, a housing open at its back, a bracket for pivotally support! ing the same with its open back against a wall, means for supporting a paper roll in the housm ing, and a feed roller rotatably mounted at the lower end of the housing, the bracket having a portion thereof forming an inclined wall resiliently directed toward the back of the roller for forcing paper from the roll against the roller. 3| 2. In a device of the class described, a bracket securable to a wall at its back, a housing, a rod pivotally connecting the lower side of the housing to said bracket adjacent said back, said housing being detachably securable at its upper end to the upper end of the bracket. the housing having side walls extending forwardly of the bracket and having bearing depressions'at the inner surfaces and substantially middle portion of the opposite side walls, and a paper roller nou tatably mounted at its ends in said depressions,

- said rod having paper feed rollers thereon and so positioned opposite the lower portion of the bracket as to receive therebetween the end of the paper supported on the first roller.

3. In a device of the class described, a bracket securable to a wall at its back, a housing, a rod pivotaliy connecting the lower side of the housing to said bracket adjacent said back, said housing being detachably securable at its upper end to the upper end of the bracket, the housing having side walls extending forwardly from the bracket and also horizontal slots in the inner surfaces of said side walls, said slots extending forwardly from the bracket and provided at the forward ends thereof within the housing with slight depressions, and a paper roller rotatably mounted at its ends in said depressions, said rod having paper feed rollers thereon and so positioned opposite the lower portion of the bracket as to receive therebetween the end of the paper supported on the first roller.

4. In a device of the class described. a bracket securable to a wall at its back, a housing, a rod pivotaliy connecting the lower side of the housing to said bracket adjacent said back, said housing being detachably securable at its upper end to the upper end of the bracket, the housing having side walls extending forwardly from the bracket and also having horizontal slots in the inner surfaces of said side walls. said slots extending forwardly from the bracket and provided at the forward ends thereof within the housing with slight depressions, a paper roller rotatably mounted at its ends in said depressions, said rod having paper feed rollers thereon and so positioned opposite the lower portion of the bracket as to receive therebetween the end of the paper supported on the first roller, and a knob on the rod for manually rotating th'e'rollers and feeding the paper.

5. In a\paper roll holder, a bracket mountable on a wall, an open-back housing pivotaliy hung at the bottom of said bracket and provided on its inner side surfaces with depressions, a paper roller seatable in said depressions, feed rollers on the pivot of the housing, and resilient means on said bracket bearing against said feed rollers when the housing is mounted on the bracket to guide paper from said paper roller out of the housing.

6. A paper roll holder comprising, a wall bracket, an open-back housing, means pivotaliy combining said bracket and housing at the bottom, the housing above its pivot extending outwardly cylindrically to hold a roll of paper and provided with pockets for receiving the bearing pins of g the paper roll, said pockets extending from the axial center of the housing to its open back in order to prevent dislodgment of the paper roll pins when the housing is closed, but being upwardly directed when the housing is swung outwardly on its pivot thereby to facilitate insertion of the paper roll bearing pins, a feed roller at the housing pivot, and a member projecting from the bracket for yielding contact with said feed roller.

7. In a device of the class described, a housing open at its back, a bracket for pivotally supporting the same with its open back against a wall, means for supporting a paper roll in the housing, and a feed roller coaxial with the pivotal axis of the housing and bracket, one of the latter having a portion resiliently directed toward the roller for forcing paper from the roll against the roller.
