DISPENSER AND RECEPTACLE MOUNTING Filed Jan. 28, 1957 IN V EN TOR.
United States Patent DISPENSER AND RECEPTACLE MOUNTING Woodrow J. Hargraves, Ontario, Calif. Application January 28, 1957, Serial No. 636,681
3 Claims. (Cl. 206-195) This invention relates to a mounting for a tissue dispenser and for an associated receptacle into which soiled tissues and other litter may be placed. This invention finds particular usefulness when installed in the interior of a motor vehicle and is adapted to be supported on the pivoted door of the glove compartment customarily provided in passenger cars and in the cabs of trucks.
One of the important features of the present invention is to provide a convenient disposable receptacle which may readily be mounted in a motor vehicle which requires a minimum of efiort to install and replace, which avoids the use of unsightly brackets, mounting bars or other supports, which does not interfere with normal operation or control of the vehicle nor present an unsightly appearance. Another object is to provide a mounting for such disposable receptacle which mounting also conveniently supports a tissue dispenser. Other and related objects and advantages will appear hereinafter.
In the drawings:
Figure 1 is a perspective view showing a preferred embodiment of my invention.
Figure 2 is a front elevation thereof.
Figure 3 is a side view partly in section.
Figure 4 is a view similar to Figure 3 showing the position of the parts when the glove compartment door is open.
Figure 5 is a perspective detail partly broken away showing the releasable support mechanism for the tissue dispenser.
Referring to the drawings, the disposable receptacle generally designated may take the form of an open enveloperhaving a rear sheet 11 and a front sheet 12 connected along a bottom line 13. Tapered gussets 14 which are preferably pleated connect the sheets 11 and 12 to form an expansible pocket for the reception of the litter and refuse.
The rear sheet 11 is provided with spaced apertures 15 for reception of metal support clips 16. These support clips are preferably mounted on a loop 17 formed in one of a pair of parallel resilient support straps 18. These straps 18 preferably take the form of large flat rubber bands and are secured to a glove compartment door 19 by means of metallic fasteners 20. The fasteners 20 may be adjusted along the length of the bands 18 in order to accommodate glove compartment doors of various sizes. The door 19 is of conventional construction and as shown in flie drawings, is pivoted at 21 at the front lower edge of the glove compartment generally designated 22. The extent of opening movement of the glove compartment door 19 is limited by means of conventional arcuate hinges 23.
The length of the bands 18 is such as to receive and resiliently support a tissue dispenser 24 of conventional shape. The rear sheet 11 is longer than the front sheet 12 in order to provide clearance between the dispenser 24 and the front sheet 12 when the glove compartment door 19 is in open position as shown in Figure 4. The dispenser may be generally rectangular and provided with 2,887,216 Patented May 19, 1959 an opening 25 through which paper tissues may be withdrawn from the interior of the dispenser. The resilient support bands 18 grip the dispenser and hold it firmly against the flat front face of the glove compartment door 19. When the door is opened to the position shown in Figure 4, the full area of opening into the glove compartment 22 is present and hence the presence of the dispenser 24 and receptacle 10 does not interfere with normal use of the glove compartment.
The receptacle 10 may be disconnected from the support clips 16 simply by lifting the receptacle to disengage the clips from the apertures 15. The receptacle preferably is formed of paper for economical replacement. The position of the claps 16 may be adjusted as desired by changing the location of the loops 17. This adjustment is facilitated by means of C shaped retainers 26 which encircle portions of the resilient bands 18 to define the loops 17.
Replacement of the dispenser 24 may readily be accomplished by manually enlarging the resilient support bands 18 to permit the endwise movement of the dispenser relative to the bands. It will be noted that either the dispenser or the receptacle may be replaced without requiring replacement of the other.
Having fully described my invention, it is to be understood that I do not wish to be limited to the details herein set forth but my invention is of the full scope of the appended claims. 1
1. In a support device of the class described, the combination of: a plurality of resilient bands, a pair of fasteners for supporting each resilient band, each fastener being adapted to engage a horizontal edge of a pivoted door for a glove compartment of a motor vehicle, each of the resilient bands being adapted to encircle a portion of a tissue dispenser whereby the latter may be resiliently confined against the front face of the said pivoted door, each of the bands having a support clip mounted on a lower portion thereof, and a receptacle pendantly supported from said clips.
2. In a support device of the class described, the combination of: a pair of resilient bands, a pair of fasteners for supporting each resilient band, each fastener being adapted to engage a horizontal edge of a pivoted door for a glove compartment of a motor vehicle, each of the resilient bands being adapted to encircle a portion of a boxlike dispenser whereby the latter may be resiliently confined against the front face of the said pivoted door, each of the bands having a support clip mounted on a lower portion thereof, and a receptacle having a rear sheet provided with apertures near its upper edge releasably engageable with said support clips, the receptacle having a top-opening pocket spaced below the said. apertures to avoid interference with the dispenser when the pivoted door is opened.
3. In a support device of the class described, the combination of: a plurality of endless resilient bands, a pair of fasteners adjustably engaging each resilient band, each fastener being adapted to engage a horizontal edge of a pivoted door for a glove compartment of a motor vehicle, each of the resilient bands being adapted to encircle a portion of a tissue dispenser whereby the latter may be resiliently confined against the front face of the said pivoted door, each of the bands having a support clip adjustably mounted on a lower portion thereof, and a receptacle having a rear sheet provided with apertures near its upper edge releasably engageable with and pivotally mounted on said support clips, the receptacle having a top-opening pocket spaced below the said apertures to avoid interference with the dispenser when the pivoted door is opened.
