2 Claims. (Cl. 248-314) This invention relates to a wall holder for an electric shaver and, more particularly, a holder of the kind including a back plate or like member adapted to be secured to a wall and having forwardly projecting arm means defining the outer limits of a shaver receiving cavity.
The object of the invention is to provide a wall holder of that general character but adapted to receive and support shavers of a number of difierent sizes, that is, of differing girth or cross section.
The preferred form of the invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings of which Fig. 1 is a front elevation of the holder; Fig. 2 is a side elevation; Fig. 3 is a top plan view; Fig. 4 is a vertical section on the line 44 of Fig. 1; and Fig. 5 is a horizontal section on the line 55 of Fig. 1.
The holder includes a back plate 1 for attachment to a wall, as by screws, for which holes 2 are indicated. The entire unit is preferably designed so that it can be plastic molded in one piece.
Suitable arm means project forwardly from the back plate to define the outer limits of a cavity to receive an electric shaver. In this preferred form curved arms 3 serve this purpose, the free ends of the arms being directed toward one another but not meeting. In the vicinity of their free ends, these arms are skewed or sloped, as at 4, so that their upper edges are more remote from the back plate than their lower edges; in other Words, the cavity opening is more restricted at the bottom than at the top.
It has been found that shavers of differing girth or cross section can be supported in the holder by substituting for one of the major cavity walls (the back Wall in this instance) a plurality of horizontally spaced elements projecting different distances into the cavity.
In this instance, there are shown two pairs of spaced vertical ribs 5, 5 and 6, 6 projecting from the back plate on each side of its center and between the arms 3, 3. The forward edges of all of the ribs are sloped or of curved form so that, like the free ends of arms 3, their lower ends project farther into the cavity than their upper ends. Also, the remote ribs 6, 6 are of a greater depth, or project farther into the cavity, than the proximate ribs 5, 5.
In effect, these are thus defined a plurality of cavities of diflerent sizes, the arms and ribs serving to receive and 2,845,245 Patented July 29, 1958 support a number of different size shavers. For purposes of illustration, the cross section outlines 7, 8 of two such shavers are indicated in Fig. 5. In common with many shaver models currently in use, these outlines are generally rectangular but with their walls curved to soften the over-all configuration. The back of the shaver having the outline 7, it will be seen, bears only on the ribs 5, 5; and other shavers of a width less than the spacing of the ribs 6, 6 can be similarly supported. Differing thicknesses of such shavers, it will be understood, are accommodated by the taper or slope of the ribs and arms. Similarly, the back of the wider shaver having the oufline 8 bears only on the ribs 6, 6, the taper likewise accommodating other shavers of similar width but different thickness. In all, therefore, shavers of many different sizes can be received and safely supported.
It will be understood that the form which has been described, while preferred, is merely illustrative of the principle of the invention and that it may be embodied in numerous forms within the scope of the following claims.
1. A wall holder adapted to accommodate electric shaver bodies of difierent cross sectional dimensions comprising the combination with a vertical back plate and a pair of horizontally spaced curved arms projecting forwardly therefrom and, at their free ends, directed toward one another, of a pair of horizontally spaced, vertical ribs projecting from'the back plate on each side of the vertical center line thereof between the said arms, the forward edges of the ribs being of curved form and pro jecting a greater distance at their lower than at their upper ends, and the outer rib of each' pair being of greater depth than the inner rib of each pair, the said ribs and arms thereby defining a plurality of receiving and supporting cavities for shavers of difiering cross section.
2. A wall holder adapted to accommodate electric shaver bodies of different cross sectional dimensions comprising the combination with a vertical back plate and a pair of horizontally spaced, curved arms projecting forwardly therefrom and, at their free ends, directed toward one another, the free ends of the arms being sloped so that their upper edges are more remote from the back plate than their lower edges, of a pair of horizontally spaced, vertical ribs projecting from the back plate on each side of the vertical center line thereof between and toward the said arms, the outermost rib of each pair being of greater depth than the innermost rib of each pair.
