Application June 11, 1949, Serial No. 98,566

1 Claim. 1

This invention relates to a toilet paper roll cover.

It is an object of the present invention to provide a cover for toilet paper rolls which are mounted in the wall surfaces and adapted to contain and retain the paper roll and with the paper roll being removable from the wall with the cover and whereby the paper roll will be closed and concealed by a decorative fixture.

It is a further object of the present invention to provide a cover for toilet paper rolls which can be mounted in the wall surfaces without the necessity of using objectionable mountings such as screws, brackets, etc.

It is still a. further object of the present invention to provide a cover for toilet paper rolls which can be mounted to the wall without protruding very much from said wall.

It is another object of the present invention to provide a toilet paper roll cover for toilet paper mounted upon the wall and within a pocket therein which has a serrated cutting edge so that the paper, as it is drawn through an opening in the bottom of the cover, can be easily torn or separated by drawing the paper over the serrated cutting edge.

Other objects of the present invention are to provide a toilet roll cover which is of simple construction, inexpensive to manufacture, easy to assemble upon the wall with the paper roll, of pleasing appearance, convenient to use and efiicient in operation.

For other objects and for a better understanding of the invention, reference may be had to the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the cover mounted upon a wall.

Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view taken on line 2-2 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional View taken on line 3-3 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a vertical sectional view of a modified form of the invention.

Fig. 5 is a transverse sectional View of a still further form of the invention.

Fig. 6 is a fragmentary elevational view of the portion of the cover which is extended into the Wall opening for connection with holes in the sides of the wall opening to fix the cover therewithin.

Fig. 7 is a longitudinal sectional view taken on line 'II of Fig. 6.

Referring now particularly to Figs. 1, 2, 3, 6 and '7, ID represents a wall having a recess I I therein.

Within the recess and at the opposite sides thereof are holes I2 and I3 for receiving projections I4 of a cover I5. These pin projections I4 are disposed upon sides I6 and H which are depressib'le in order to permit the cover to be extended into the recess I I and these projections will be sprung into the openings or holes I2 and. I3 when they have become registered therewith. These sides have inwardly extending pin projections I8 and 19 for receiving and retaining a cen tral tub 2| of a toilet paper roll 22. In order to make the sides more depressible, there is provided a U-shaped slot or slit 23 in the side portions.

In the bottom of the cover I5 is an opening 25 through which the paper is pulled and a cutting edge projection 26 having serrated cutting teeth 21 over which the paper can be pulled to sever a piece of the same from the roll.

In Fig. 4, there is shown a bottom extension 28 which rests on the bottom of the recess I I within the wall and which is curved toreceive and support the roll of paper 22. In this form of the invention the inwardly extending pins are dispensed with and the paper roll is merely held within the curved portions of the cover and within the extension 28 thereof. The paper itself is fed to the opening 26 and can be withdrawn downwardly therethrough.

In Fig. 5, there is shown a still further form of the invention wherein the usual spring spindle, as indicated at 3|, is used for the support of the paper and for the support of the cover within the recess I I. This spindle has projections 32 and 33 thereon which extend through holes 34 in the sides of cover 35 to fix the cover as well as the roll within the recess II. The pin 33 is urged outwardly by an internal spring 36 within the spindle 3d. The side of the cover 35 can be depressed in order to permit the retraction of the pin 33 by the lateral movement of the main spindle body 3I across the recess. The spindle 3I will accordingly be mounted in the recess in the same manner as it is mounted without the cover being used and when used with the ordinary toilet paper rolls.

While various changes may be made in the detail construction, it shall be understood that such changes shall be within the spirit and scope of the present invention as defined by the appended claim.

Having thus set forth and disclosed the nature of my invention, what is claimed is:

A toilet paper cover having side portions, slots in the side portions to provide a weakened part thereof, pins on the weakened parts of the side portions adapted to enter openings in the side of the wall recess whereby to hold the cover in place within the wall recess and means for supporting the toilet paper roll on the cover.
