INVENTOR MAX F 2// o5/ y ATTORNY Patented Sept. 17, 1940 UNITED STATES DEODORANT CONTAINER FOR TOILET BOWLS Max F. Reikosky, Trenton, N. J
Application December 30, 1938, Serial No. 248,498
This invention relates to deodorant containers for toilet bowls.
An object of this invention is to provide a container of the character described, to hold a charge 5 of a deodorant or disinfectant to be placed in any standard make of toilet bowl, the container being so constructed and attached to the bowl, as to allow flush water to enter and pass through the container to dissolve and wash out part of the deodorant or disinfectant charge.
Another object of this invention is to provide a container of the character described, so attached to the bowl that no parts project above the bowl, the container being so constructed that water must pass through the same when flushing the bowl, and no water can accumulate therein.
Yet another object of this invention is to provide a strong and durable deodorant or disinfectant holder of the character described, which shall be relatively inexpensive to manufacture, easy to attach to any standard toilet bowl, and which shall yet be practical and efficient to a high degree.
Other objects of this invention will in part be obvious and in part hereinafter pointed out.
lhe invention accordingly consists in the features of construction, combinations of elements, and arrangement of parts which will be exemplified in the construction hereinafter described, and of which the scope of application will be indicated in the following claim.
In the accompanying drawing, in which is shown one of the various possible illustrative embodiments of this invention,
Fig. 1 is a side elevational View of a stand and toilet bowl provided with a deodorant holder, embodying the invention, with part of the bowl in cross-section;
Fig. 2 is a top plan view of the structure shown in Fig. 1, with parts in cross-section;
Fig. 3 is a cross-sectional view taken on line 33 of Fig. 2; and
Fig. 4 is a cross-sectional view taken on line 44 of Fig. 3.
Referring now in detail to the drawing, II] designates a toilet flush bowl of standard construction having an annular, tubular portion I I at its upper end, extending inwardly from the outer wall I3 of the bowl.
The bottom wall I4 of the tubular portion I I is formed with usual spaced openings I5, through which water in the passage passes down to the bottom of the bowl.
Attached within the bowl, just beneath the tubular portion I I and against the inner surface of the outer wall I3 of the bowl, in the manner described hereinafter, is a container or holder 20 for deodorant or disinfectant 2I placed therein.
Said container comprises a tubular member 22, longitudinally curved, and having a top wall 23 contacting the underside of wall M, an outer vertical wall 2t contacting the inner surface of wall I 3, and a downwardly and outwardly inclined wall 25 interconnecting said top and outer walls.
The top wall 23 has a central opening 26 registering with one of the openings I5 of the tubular portion II. Member 22 is held against the underside of tubular portion II by a wire hanger 30, as shown in the drawing. Said hanger has a pair of parallel portions 3! extending vertically through the registering openings 26 and I5, a loop portion 32 interconnecting said portions 3| and bent against the underside of top wall 23 of the holder, and a pair of outwardly extending terminal portions 35 contacting the top surface of wall I4 of tubular portion l I.
It will now be understood that water passing through the tubular portion I I passes downwardly through the registering openings I5, 26 into the holder 20. The water must pass through tubular member 22 to dissolve and wash out some of the deodorant or disinfectant 2 i. The water and dissolving deodorant pass out through the open ends of tubular member 22.
It will thus be seen that there is provided a device in which the several objects of this invention are achieved, and which is well adapted to meet the conditions of practical use.
As various possible embodiments might be made of the above invention, and as various changes might be made in the embodiment above set forth, it is to be understood that all matter herein set forth or shown in the accompanying drawing is to be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
A deodorant container for use in a toilet bowl provided with an annular tubular portion apertured at the bottom thereof and mounted adjacent the top of the bowl, said container comprising a curved tubular member open at its opposite ends and having a centrally apertured top wall with the latter adapted to contact said tubular portion, means to mount said container with its top wall in contact with said apertured bottom, said means comprising a hanger formed from a single piece of wire and having a pair of parallel portions passing through the aperture in said top wall, a horizontal loop interconnecting said portions and in contact with the underside of said top wall, and a pair of outwardly extending terminal portions at the upper ends of said parallel portions, said terminal portions adapted to pass through the aperture in the bottom of said tubular member.
