To facilitate the removal of each of the cover
In the drawings the toilet seat cover members
are indicated generally by the reference numeral members 5 the front wall I!) is provided adjacent
the bottom thereof with an opening I9 through
5 and each consists of a sheet of destructible ma
terial such as for example, tissue paper or the
35 like. Each cover member 5 has an edge contour
corresponding substantially to the edge contour
of substantially one-half of a conventional toilet
seat. At one end thereof each cover member 5
is provided with an opening 6, while at the rela
40 tively opposite end thereof, which latter end will
terminate at the front end of one half section of
the toilet seat proper, there is provided a tongue
extension 1.
The cover members 5 are stored in a dispensing
45 receptacle 8 provided therefor.
The receptacle 8 in vertical cross section and
in end elevation is of av shape corresponding sub
stantially to the shape of each of the cover mem
50 bers 5, or in other-words is of a shape corre
sponding substantially to the shape of one half
of a conventional toilet seat.
which a finger may be passed to engage the ex
tension ‘I in a manner to exert a downward thrust
on a cover member 5 for forcing the lower end
of the latter through the slot l8 where it may
be grasped with the other hand of the user and
pulled through the slot l 8 to complete the removal
of the cover member from the dispensing cabinet
or casing.
As suggested in Figures 2 and 5, the material
from which the cover members 5 are formed may
be relatively stiff, or treaded with some material
as to render these cover members stiff so that
the side edges thereof may be bent downwardly
to provide side flanges 20 and to otherwise give
the cover member the cross-sectional shape sug
gested in Figure 2. When so shaped and con
structed it will be seen that each cover member 50
will, as it were, positively unite itself with its half
of the toilet seat so as not to'be easily displaced.
Further, the dispensing cabinet 8 includes an However, where the cover members are so con

It will be also understood that the dispensing
10 cabinet 8 is secured to the wall of the toilet-room
preferably at one side of‘ the flush tank 2|
through the medium of fastening screws or the
like 22. To accommodate these screws 22, the
rear wall H is suitably apertured and is also

It will also be noted, that in order to preclude
misplacement of the cover l4 there is provided
for the latter an anchoring chain or other ?exi
ble element 0 that is anchored at one end to the
wall l2 and at a relatively opposite end to the
lid or cover I4.
Also to close the upper end of the slot IT the
lid or cover I4 is provided with a tongue or ex
tension Ma as clearly shown in Figures 2 and 3.
Also in forming the openings 6 in cover mem
bers 5 struck-out tongues 6a are provided and
which are folded downwardly against the inner
faces‘ of the cover members to cooperate with
with internal grooves at the upper ends of the 20
end walls of the container, a suspension rod hav
ing its respective opposite ends arranged in said
grooves and from which the seat covers are sus
pended and said container being provided with
a slotted opening extending entirely across the 25
bottom adjacent its lowermost portion, said
slotted opening also extending upwardly from the
bottom of each of the side walls into the in
creased width of the upper portion of the con
tainer to facilitate removal of the wider end of 30
the seat cover through the opening.
