PAPER TOWEL DISPENSER
Edwin Jacobsen, Altadena, Calif.
Original application‘ December 28, 1936, Serial
No. 117,830. Divided and this application
March 17, 1937, Serial No. 131,442
. . 2‘ Claims. (Cl. 312-58)
This application ‘is a division of my original
application Serial No.'117,830, filed Dec. 28, 1936.
While my invention relates in particular to a
paper towel dispenser, it is equally useful and al
so adaptable to dispense tiolet paper and other
sheets of ?exible material that has need of being
dispensed economically and Without undue waste.
The primary object of my invention is to dis
10
pense paper toweling and the like'without undue
waste.
“
‘
'
‘

A further object‘ of my invention is to provide
dispenser so simple‘ mechanically that it will
be trouble free.
a
A still further object of my invention is to pro
vide a dispenser that is cheap to manufacture.
With these and incidental objects in view, the
invention consists in certain novel features of
construction and combination of parts, the essen
tial elements of which are set forth in the append
20 ed claims, and a preferred form of embodiment
of which is hereinafter shown with reference to
the drawing which accompanies and forms a
part of this speci?cation.
In the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a front elevation of my dispenser with
25
15
a portion broken away to show the paper on
the inside.
Fig. 2 is a longitudinal cross-sectional View tak
en on line 2-2 Fig. 1 looking in the direction
30 indicated.
Fig. 3 is a cross sectional view taken on line
3-—3 Fig. 1, looking in the direction indicated and
showing the bottom of the stack of paper.
Fig. 4 is plan view of a stack of paper showing
a rectangular sheet folded and ready to be placed
in the dispenser.
Fig. 5 is one of the sheets of paper shown in
Fig. 4 in an unfolded state, the dotted lines
designating where the folds occur.
40
Fig. 61s a plan view of a stack of paper showing
another type of fold.
Like reference characters refer to like parts
throughout the several views.
The cabinet consists of a box like structure
45 having a back I, sides 2, a top element 3, a front
piece 4, a bottom 5, and a door for loading 6.
The bottom 5, has a step 1 which supports the
back end of the stack of paper 8. The front end
of the paper stack is supported by the support
60 bracket 9 which is secured by welding or other
means to the front piece 4. The release lever l0,
interposes the support bracket 9 and the hinge
bracket H, which carries the hinge pin l2. The
hinge bracket is also welded to the front piece
55 4. The release lever [0 extends through the
slots l3 in the front piece 4, exposing‘ the oper
ating tabs l4 and I5. The paper consists of a
substantially square or rectangular sheet as
shown in Fig. 5. The dotted lines I'B‘and [1 show
where the sheet‘ is to be folded and when the
sheets are folded alternately and stacked they‘
take the form shown in Fig. 4, which may be con
sidered the bottom of the stack. "The dotted
lines i6 and I‘! in Fig. 4 become the angular ‘end
l6 and the back edge I‘! in Fig; 4. ‘The dotted
line I6 in Fig. 4 designates the second sheet‘ in
the ‘stack and is alternate‘or of the other hand
in respect to the diagonal line [6 of the ?rst
sheet. Referring again to Fig. 5, it is not neces
sary to‘ fold vthe sheet on the line l6 as the sheet 1"
may be cut to produce the desired angle. When
a number of sheets are folded alternately and
placed in a stack they will appear as shown in
Fig. 3. The paper is not limited to a single fold
as they may be folded several times so long as 20
one free end presents an angular end.
To operate the dispenser it must ?rst be load
ed, which is accomplished by opening the door
6 which swings on the hinge IS. The stack of
paper is placed in the cabinet with the diagonal
edges on the lower side and toward the front.
The stack rests on the step 1 and the support
bracket 9, and the release lever I0, supporting
the end of the paper having the angular end.
The door 6 is now closed and held in position by 30
the lock H]. To get a towel one of the tabs 14
or I 5 must be pressed. Referring for the moment
to Fig. 3, let us say that the tab [4 is pressed.
This will cause the lever in to swing on the pin
l2, hence slide off of the angular end N5 of the
sheet of paper 20. It is obvious that this portion
of the sheet being unsupported will drop and rest
on the bottom 5. The front piece 4, the bottom
5, and the sides 2 being cut away allows the paper
20 to appear as shown in Fig. 1. The towel 20
may now be pulled off of the step ‘I and the
bracket 9 through the opening 2|. If however.
the towel is not pulled out it is not possible to
release another sheet of paper as the supporting
bracket 9 and the step ‘I hold the straight edge 45
of the paper 22 and the back edge ll, thus pre
venting the diagonal edge of the next towel from
falling to ‘the bottom 5. From this it may be
seen that when a towel appears in the openings
24, it must be pulled out before another towel
can be dropped or made to appear. It is true
that should a tab be pressed a ‘towel appears as
shown at 20, Fig. 1. Should a tab be pressed
again before the ?rst towel is removed nothing
will seem to have happened. If, however, the 55
2,116,792
2
towel is now removed another will appear with
out further action on the release lever. Should
the tab be pressed twice after a towel has ap
peared then the second towel will not appear after
the towel in View has been removed. In other
words no matter how many times the tabs have
been pressed no more than two sheets can be
obtained. They must be removed from the dis
penser one at a time and this will obviate undue
10 waste.
The support bracket 9, is not essential except
when extreme loads are to be carried. Ordinari
ly the paper may rest directly on the release
lever I0, thus obviating the bracket 9. While I
show the door hinged at the bottom it may be
hinged from the side.
In Fig. 6 is shown a stack of paper folded so as
to drop a sheet each time the tabs of the con
trol lever is operated. This type of fold may
be desirable where the element of waste is held
in check by other means.
While the form of mechanism herein shown
and described is admirably adapted to ful?ll the
objects primarily stated, it is to be understood
that it is not intended to con?ne the invention
to the one form of embodiment herein shown
and described, as it is susceptible of embodiment
in various forms all coming within the scope of
the claims which follow.
What I claim is:
30
1. A paper dispensing cabinet, adapted to dis
pense a stack of paper sheets having alternately
arranged angular front edges, having back, side
and top elements formed into a boxlike struc
ture, a step extending inwardly from the back
of the cabinet for supporting the back edges of
the paper, said step having a free end inclined
downwardly and forwardly, a triangular bracket
extending inwardly from the front of the cabinet
for supporting the front edge of the paper, a
releasing lever presenting a substantially straight
inner edge hinged to said bracket for horizontal 10
movement for alternately releasing the angular
ends of paper that rest thereon, a front piece
secured to the side elements adjacent their lower
forward edges and extending toward the free end
of the step to form a restricted opening for the 15
paper to be drawn through.
2. A paper dispensing cabinet, adapted to dis
pense a stack of paper sheets having alternately
arranged angular front edges, having back, side
and top elements formed into a boxlike struc 20
ture, a step extending inwardly from the back
of the cabinet for supporting the back edges of
the paper, said step having a free end inclined
downwardly and forwardly, a triangular bracket
extending inwardly from the front of the cabinet 25
for supporting the front edge of the paper, a
releasing lever presenting a substantially straight
inner edge hinged to said bracket for horizontal
movement for alternately releasing the angular
ends of paper that rest thereon.
