9 Claims. (Cl. 242-553) This invention relates to paper roll holders.

An object of the invention is to provide a paper roll holder in the form of a spindle which is constructed and arranged for receiving a large roll of paper mounted thereon and a small roll of paper contained therein.

Another object of the invention is to provide a paper roll holder in Which the spindle is composed of interlitted tubular parts adapted for receiving a large paper roll on the periphery of the interfitted parts and which parts may be readily separated for inserting a small paper roll` therein or removing the same therefrom so as to provide` an extra supply which is maintained in a sanitary condition and which may be used when the large paper roll is consumed.

Still another object of the' invention is to provide a holder in the form of a spindle in which one of the tubular parts is provided with a flange or rim at one end thereof which functions to limit the movement of the paper roll on the spindle and which retains the same between the flange or rim and a side wall of a receptacle in which the holder is mounted.

Still another object of the invention is to provide a spindle having a rim which is adapted to bear advertising matter so as to dispose the same in constant display during use and which rim may be conveniently engaged by a fingertip for facilitating the removal of the spindle from the receptacle.

Still another object of the invention is to provide a spindle of said character in which the tubular parts are telescopically associated and are tensioned by spring means to provide an outward thrust at the opposite ends of the tubular parts.

With the foregoing and other objects in View, reference is now made to the following specification and accompanying drawings in which the preferred embodiments of the invention are illustrated.

In the drawings:

Fig. l is a longitudinal sectional view of a holder in the form of a spindle consisting of telescopically associated parts constructed in accordance with the invention.

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

Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional view of a holder embodying a modified form of the invention and showing the same with a roll of paper mounted thereon.

Fig. 4 is a vertical sectional view taken approximately on line 4-4 of Fig. 3-.

Fig. 5 is a view in elevation of a holder in the form of a spindle embodying another modified form of the invention and shown with one end thereof in vertical section and the spindle mounted in a receptacle which is fragmentarily illustrated.

Referring to the drawings, and more particularly to the form of the invention illustrated in Figs. l and 2 thereof, a paper roll holder in the form of a spindle is provided which consists of intertted hollow cylindrical parts and 11. The cylindrical part 10 is formed with a wall 12 having a trunnion 13 formed integrally therewith, while the cylindrical part 11 is formed with an end wall 14 having a trunnion 15 formed integrally therewith. The cylindrical part 11 slidably ts within the cylindrical partV 10 and adjacent the end wall 14 the cylindrical part 11 is formed with an end portion 16 which is of relatively larger diameter forming a shoulder 17 between which and the end of the cylindrical part 10 a coil spring f ice 18 is located and disposed `in surrounding relation with the cylindrical part 11 inwardly of the shoulder 17 so as to tension said cylindrical parts to maintain an outward-axial thrust at the outer ends thereof. The inner end 23 of the cylindrical part 11 is open` and is cut on an angle to the longitudinal axis of said cylindrical part.

The end walls 12 and 14 are provided with peripheral recesses 19 and 20 adapted to snugly receive ring members 21 which extend outwardly from the cylindrical parts so as to form flanges at either end of the spindle. Asillustrated, the end wall 14 is provided with a ring `21 snugly fitting the recess 20 so as to form a flange on the outer end of the cylindrical part 11 which functions to limit the movement of a paper roll mounted on the spindle and to retain the roll between the flange and a side wall of a receptacle in which the holder is mounted. The trunnions 13 and 15 are also provided with sockets 22 whereby the spindle may be journaled in bearings in a receptacle or the receptacle may be provided with lugs adapted to engage in the sockets 22 for rotatably mounting the spindle. The ring 21 is adapted to bear advertising matter on the periphery thereof so as to dispose the same in constant display during use. The ring is also r adapted to be conveniently engaged for facilitating the removal of the spindle from the receptacle.

The spindle may be of any desired size for receiving a large roll of paper thereon such as a paper towel roll, facial tissue roll, toilet tissue roll and` the like, and a smaller roll thereof may be mounted within the cylindrical parts 10 and 11. For this purpose, the inner cylindrical part 11 has the inner end thereof terminating at an angle to the length thereof so as to readily grasp the inner roll which protrudes therefrom when the cylindrical parts 10 and 11 are disconnected.

In the form of the invention shown in Figs. 3 and 4 of the drawings,.the paper roll holder is similarly in the form of a spindle consisting of interlitted hollow cylindrical parts 25 and 26. The cylindrical part 25 is formed with an end wall 27 having a trunnion 23 formed integrally therewith while the cylindrical part 26 is formed with an end wall 29 having a trunnion 30 formed integrally therewith. The cylindrical part 26 slidably fits in the open end of the cylindrical part 25 in telescopic relation therein and located within the cylindrical parts is a coil spring 31 arranged with its ends extending into sockets 32 and 33 opening through the inner faces of the end walls 27 and 29. The spring 31 tensions the cylindrical parts to maintain an outward axial thrust at the outer ends thereof. The end walls 27 and 29 are provided with peripheral recesses 34 and 35 adapted to snugly receive a ring member such as the ring member 36 fitting the recess 35 in the end wall 29. The trunnions 28 and 30 are adapted to be journaled in bearings in a receptacle for mounting the spindle for turning movement and the trunnions are provided with sockets 37 and 38l for rotatably mounting the spindle in a receptacle having lugs adapted to engage said sockets. The spindle is adapted to receive a large roll of paper thereon and a smaller roll of paper such as the roll R mounted within the cylindrical parts with the spring 31 extending axially through the cardboard form on which the roll R is wound.

The invention may also be in the form shown in Fig. 5 of the drawings in which a paper roll holder `in the form of a spindle consists of hollow cylindrical parts 4U and 41 `and a hollow cylindrical part 42 slidably connecting and intertting in the confronting open ends of the cylindrical parts 40 and 41. The cylindrical parts 40 and 41 are provided with end walls 43 and 44 respectively having trunnions 45 and 46 for rotatably mounting the same in bearings in a receptacle suchas the receptacle F which isfragmentarily illustrated-in Fig. V5. The hollow cylindrical part 42 slidably its the cylindrical parts 40 and 41 and disposed between the confronting ends of the cylindrical parts 40 and 41 is a coil spring 47 arranged in surrounding relation with the cylindrical part for tensioning the cylindrical parts 40 and 41 to maintain an outwardaxial thrust at the outer ends thereof. In this form of the invention, the trunnions 45 and 46 are similarly provided with recesses 4S and the end walls are formed with peripheral recesses 49 for receiving rings such as the ring 50 mounted on the end wall 44. This form is also adapted for receiving a large paper roll on the outer cylindrical periphery of the cylindrical parts 4t) and 41 and with a smaller roll located within the cylindrical parts.

The spindles shown in the three forms may be made of any desired material such as transparent thermoplastic material as illustrated in the drawings, whereby the inner rolls are visible through the cylindrical parts when the larger rolls are removed. There is thus provided a paper roll holder adapted to receive a large roll of paper on the outer cylindrical periphery thereof and a smaller roll contained therein which is maintained in a sanitary condition and may be readily removed from the holder.

While the preferred embodiments of the invention are shown and described herein, it is to be understood that the same is not so limited but shall cover and include any and all modifications thereof which fall within the purview of the invention.
