Abstract: Let $ \sigma $ denote the standard based-free action of a torus $ T$ on the Hilbert cube $ Q$. It will be shown that every simple fiber-preserving action of $ T$ on $ Q \times B$, where $ B$ is a finite-dimensional, compact metric absolute retract, is fiber-preserving equivalent to the diagonal action $ \sigma \times {\text{i}}{{\text{d}}_B}$.
