  1. The ornamental design for a trip handle for a water closet, as shown and described.

FIG. 1 is a perspective view taken from the top, front and right side of a trip handle for a water closet embodying my new design;

FIG. 2 is a front elevational view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a top plan view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a left side elevational view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a right side elevational view thereof;

FIG. 6 is a bottom plan view thereof;

FIG. 7 is a rear elevational view thereof;

FIG. 8 is a front elevational view of a second embodiment thereof, which is identical to, but a mirror image of the first embodiment; and,

FIG. 9 is a perspective view taken from the top, front and right side of a third embodiment thereof, which is the same as the first embodiment except for the omission of the indentations in the top of the handle.

The fragmentary broken line representation of a shaft in FIG. 3 is for the purpose of illustration only, and forms no part of the claimed design.
