Abstract: An apparatus for reducing or eliminating splattering of fluid at a urinal or toilet is disclosed. The apparatus includes a tray adjacent to the urinal or toilet, foot rests on either side of the tray, a splatter guard comprising an enclosure located on top of the tray, wherein an open end of the splatter guard faces the urinal or toilet, and a closed end of the splatter guard faces the individual, and wherein the splatter guard prevents splattering of liquid falling from the urinal or toilet, a disposable and absorbent pad configured for placement in the tray such that the pad absorbs liquid falling from the urinal or toilet and, a disposable and water repellant cover configured for placement over and on top of the splatter guard.
Abstract: A device discharges fragrance during the dispensing of toilet seat covers generally includes a retainer for holding the toilet seat covers and at least one scent reservoir. The scent reservoir is disposed in the inside of the retainer and in contact with the toilet seat covers. At least one opening is also disposed in the retainer and defines an opening for dispensing the seat covers and discharging fragrance. In the process of usage of the seat cover, a user removes the seat cover from the retainer by pulling the seat cover through the opening. The pulling of the seat cover creates friction on the scent reservoir and enables the fragrance particles to be released. The fragrance air flows out from the opening with the seat cover and disburses scented air into the ambient air.
Abstract: A toilet seat with an automatic turning cover includes a start device, a toilet seat cover, a toilet seat, an elevating arm, a turning arm and a belt. The toilet seat cover and elevating arm are coupled to the start device. A lower end of the turning arm is pivotally coupled to the middle of the elevating arm and fixed to the toilet seat cover, and an upper end is pivotally coupled to a pivotal base and passed through two fulcrums of the turning arm to couple the upper end with the pivotal base. The toilet seat controls the start device to drive the elevating and turning arms to lift the toilet seat independently. The belt is pulled to change the surface of the toilet seat to face towards the front of the toilet seat cover. The start device is controlled to lift both toilet seat cover and toilet seat.
Abstract: A cartridge has lower and upper plates, vertically oriented front, rear and side plates and a rotatable cylindrical core supported adjacent to its ends between the side plates. A roll of paper constitutes covers attached to the core. A free end extends through the opening and terminates at a forward end of a seat. The paper is comprised of consecutive lengths separated by transverse perforations with a tab centrally located and forwardly extending. Each length has a lower surface with an adhesive.
Abstract: A bobbin assembly is provided that is suitable for dispensing webbed material using a power driven coupling in a toilet seat assembly having a housing with wall portions. The bobbin assembly comprises an extruded thermoplastic hollow tube having a plurality of splines disposed longitudinally therein and an end cap assembly adapted for connection to the wall portion. The splines are constructed and arranged in mating inter-engagement with the power driven coupling. The end coupling is spring biased toward the hollow tube to mate with the hollow tube. The bobbin assembly allows for identical supply and take-up bobbins.
Abstract: A toilet seat assembly for mounting to the toilet bowl can be assembled and disassembled by aligning vanous components of the assembly at predetermined angles with respect to one another. The toilet seat assembly includes a housing defining a cavity for receiving a sleeve dispensing apparatus and a pair of mounting forks. The housing is rotatable between a predetermined assembly angle position where the housing can be installed or removed from the pair of mounting forks and positions beyond the assembly angle where the housing is securely seated within the pair of mounting forks.
Abstract: The present invention provides a toilet seat assembly that can be assembled and disassembled without the use of tools by aligning various components of the assembly at a predetermined angle with respect to one another. Another aspect of the invention includes a system composed of a plurality of toilet seat assemblies that communicate information onto and receive information from a computer network that can include the Internet in one embodiment. Another aspect of the invention includes a kit for serviceing the assembly of the invention that includes a plurality of rolls of plastic sleeves.
Abstract: An improved electromechanical assembly advances a tubular protective covering around a toilet seat. The covering is stored on a reel, and pulled off from the reel as it is replaced, and the used covering is taken up on a second reel. An activation button exposed through the top of the assembly is depressed to actuate a switch assembly which, in turn, actuates a drive mechanism. By actuating the drive mechanism, the cover is moved through a predetermined distance in such a manner that when it is in the mounted position, the toilet seat body is completely surrounded by the tubular cover. An upper housing portion has an integral pressure blade for exerting a constant downward force on the advancing protective covering. The pressure ensures adequate contact between the covering and a counter shaft assembly which communicates magnetically with internal electronic circuitry.
Abstract: A sanitary toilet seat is provided which has an integral toilet seat covering material dispenser and disposal device. The device moves a predetermined length of sanitary seat covering material from a dispensing port to a disposal port each time a motor is activated. A pressure sensor is provided for resetting the delay timer in response to high pressure and starting the delay timer in response to low pressure. Once the manually adjustable period of delay has expired, a relay activates a motor, which starts the motion of the covering material about the toilet seat. The motor continues until it is deactivated by a micro switch after one full cycle of operation in which a predetermined length of covering material has been dispensed. A deactivation switch is provided to prevent operation when the seat lid is down, preventing the covering material from being dispensed while the toilet is being used as a seat.
