  • Patent number: 6314591
    Abstract: The present invention 10 discloses a toilet for venting 30 malodorous odors by providing one or more air indraft members 32 connected to conduit 36 leading to an exhaust fan or air purification unit, the toilet 22 also preventing cascading water 12 over the rim 20 area caused by clogged passageways within the toilet by having a forwardly located depression 12 acting as a spill way to direct the overflow in one direction thereby reducing the scope of contamination to one area instead of over the toilet bowl exterior surface and surrounding walls.

  • Patent number: 6305035
    Abstract: A device for supporting a roll of toilet paper on a bedside commode includes a dowel pin maintained between opposite arm members. The dowel pin is specifically sized and configured for removable receipt through the hollow core tube of a conventional roll of toilet paper. The arm members extend from the dowel pin and removably attach to the frame structure of the bedside commode in a manner which supports the toilet paper roll in convenient reach of a person seated on the commode, thereby permitting sheets of paper to be pulled and separated from the roll as the roll rotates about the dowel pin.
