Preventing Toilet Paper Excess

At Boy Scout Camp, some young men get a little carried away dispensing the toilet paper. Perhaps it is their digestive system’s response to the change in diet at the mess hall, or perhaps it is just for fun. These excesses sometimes lead to clogs the plumbing, other times the toilet paper ends up wet on the floor.  One attempt to reduce these occurrences is a toilet paper dispenser that only makes one rotation at a time.  In the photo, the upper arrow shows a steel pin that hits the cam, identified by the lower arrow.  This prevents some of the “freewheeling” behavior some scouts may have on their first few occasions away from home.
