' (Cl.-l3279) 1 Claim. i
The instant invention relates to a toilet kit and more particularly to a mens kit capable of holding tubes, cans and bottles containing toilet preparation as well as toilet accessories such as safety razor, blades, shaving and tooth brushes and comb.
One of the primary objects of the invention is the construction of a toilet kit of the character indicated having means for dispensing the various toilet creams, powder, liquid and the like contained in the tubes, cans and. bottles aforementioned.
Yet another aim is the manufacture of a kit in which each bottle, tube and can is equipped with a valve mechanism for selectively dispensing the. toilet preparations.
Still another purpose is the fabrication of a kit having the features set out above and which will be a compact portableunit capable of being readily secured to a support such as a wall or ledge; which will be easy to use and economical to manufacture.
The above and other aims and objects will be apparent from the detailed description hereinafter appearing when taken in conjunction with the appended drawing showing preferred embodiments of the invention, and in which:
2 holding a can of .talcum powder 3!, and compartment 2t similarly holding a tube of toothpaste 32. Each of the tubes, can and bottle has adispensing valve mechanism 33, it, 35 or 36. As shown in Fig. 2, in the closed position of lid Hi the operating knobs 37, 2,8, 39 and 40 of the respective valve mechanisms extend through one A of apertures ii, t2, 33 or i l, formed adjacent the lower hinged portion of lid M, said apertures said surface. For holding the lid portion is in.
horizontal position a two-part folding bracket 52 pivote at 53 to lid portion it is provided. Each of lid portions M and i6 is snapped closed and frictionally held thus by flanges 54 or the like on the upper edge of the lower lid and curved top Figure l is a perspective view of a toilet kit showin a front lid portion of the kit in open horizontal position 'to reveal the manner in which the tubes, bottle and can holding toilet preparations are operatively positioned within the kit and Fig. 2 is a fragmentary perspective view of the lower portion of the kitshowing the disposition of the various toilet articles or accessories on the inner surface of a. lower hinged lid portion or cover, the latter being shown in open position.
In Figs. 1 and 2, the reference character K designates the kit as a whole comprising a substantially rectangular receptacle or container l having side walls II and l2, 8, rear wall l3, and an upper lid portion I4 having a. curved overhanging extension l5 at its upper edg constituting the top of'the container. A lower lid portion l8 having a. curved extension I! at its lower edge constituting the bottom wall of the container,
is hinged to the rear wall at l8, while upper lid portion is hinged as indicated at I9.
I The upper part of the kit K is equipped with l a. plurality of spaced vertically extending par-' titions 20, 21, and 22, forming compartments 2!, 28, 21, and 28, the compartment preferably holding in a. downwardly directed or inverted dispensing position a tube of shaving cream 28, compartment 26 similarly holding a bottle of after-shave lotion 30, compartment 21 similarly it: on the upper lid portion.
Referring again to the drawing, it will be seen that the kit K is adapted to be attached to a wall or ledge, and when lid i5 carrying various toilet accessories is down. the toilet preparations may be selectively dispensed by operating knobs or push buttons 31, 38, 39 and 4B.
It will thus ,be appreciated that the various aims and objects of the invention have been attained. Various changes in the specific details will occur to those skilled in the. art and it is contemplated to cover all such and to be limited in this respect only as may be necessary by the scope of the claim hereto appended.
What I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is: a
.A toilet article unit comprising a container having an upper lid hinged to the walls thereof intermediate the top and bottom of the conupper lid and accessto a dispensed portion from a. receptacle solely by opening said lower lid, said lower lid having means for supporting a plurality of toilet accessories, and means for holding said lower lid in a, horizontal position when opened.
