Aug. 8, 1950 P. J. TARZIAN PAPER ROLL DEVICE Filed June 24, 1948 Patented Aug. 8, 1950 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE PAPER ROLL DEVICE Peter J. Tarzian, Brooklyn, N. Y.
Application June 24, 1948, Serial No. 34,933
1 Claim. 1
This invention relates to a holder or bracket for dispensable rolls of paper such as hand towels, toilet paper, wrapping paper and the like and has for its primary object, the provision of a device which greatly simplifies removing the core of an exhausted roll and the substitution of a new one therefor.
The difficulties associated with the replacement of paper rolls are a matter of common knowledge and everyday experience.
In accordance with the present invention, a device is provided associated with the bracket or support by virtue of which the replacement of an exhausted roll is accomplished by a simple manipulation.
An illustrative embodiment of the invention is shown in the appended drawings, wherein:
Fig. 1 is a plan view of my device.
Fig. 2 is a side elevation schematically showing the device manipulated for the replacement of an exhausted roll.
Fig. 3 is a view similar to Fig. 2 with the device swung into a vertical plane for the reception of a paper roll.
Fig. 4 illustrates a modified form of the invention.
Referring particularly to Figs. 1 to 3 of the drawings, bracket It having horizontally directed standards H and I2, is shown as being mounted on the side of a wall surface M and as having a transverse cylindrical roll support l5 for a paper roll l6 disposed between the ends of the standards H and 12.
As shown particularly in Fig. l, the left end of the roll support I5 is fixedly attached to the end of the standard II. The right end of the roll support I 5 is formed with a pin I], which normally seats within a transverse recess l8 formed near the end of the standard [2 on the upper side thereof. As shown more particularly in Fig. l, the standard I I is pivotally mounted on a screw I!) which extends through the bracket I from the rear side thereof.
It will be appreciated from the foregoing that in order to remove an exhausted roll from the device, the right end of the roll support 15 is merely raised into a vertical position causing the standard II to pivot on the screw I9 as shown more particularly in Figs. 2 and 3 of the drawings. It is obvious that the exhausted core may then be easily removed from the roll support and replaced by a fresh roll,
Fig. 4 shows a modified embodiment of the invention especially designed for use in a wall recess of the type used in tile baths, for example. In this case, the left end of the roll support 15 is mounted on a vertical pivot 20 disposed at the end of the standard ll so that the roll support can pivot outwardly in a horizontal plane as clearly indicated by the dotted lines in the drawing. In using the device of this embodiment, the roll support [5 is slightly raised so that the pin I 1 is clear of the recess l8 and the roll support moved outwardly for the replacement of the exhausted roll as is readily apparent.
Other changes and modifications may be made in the particular structure illustrated without departing from the scope of the invention set forth in the claim.
A holder for paper rolls and the like within a recessed wall comprising a pair of spaced supporting elements secured to a bracket device for attachment to the wall surface, a transverse roll supporting member disposed between the supporting elements, means pivotally mounting said member on a vertical axis on one of said elements, said element to which the transverse roll supporting member is pivotally attached having a screw for pivotally mounting the same on a horizontal axis for turning motion on the bracket, a slot formed on the top of the other supporting element and extending a short distance therein to form a recess and a pin on the end of the transverse roll supporting member adapted to fit in said recess whereby the transverse roll supporting member may be elevated from one end for the removal and replacement of the paper roll, said means pivotally mounting said element on a vertical axis and said screw mounting said roll supporting member on a horizontal axis being located at opposite ends of said one of said elements.
PETER J. TARZIAN.
