Pump Dispenser for a Flexible Press-on
US patent # 9,517,483 - issue date 12-13-2016
Many people prefer to repackage store-bought liquid products or neatly
package homemade liquid products within attractive containers, such as glass
or metal containers.
Some of these containers have a flexible lid or other form of flexible
closure, where at least the panel (the center area in the top of the cap) is
flexible, even if the threaded skirt area is more rigid.
A common form of flexible lid is the press-on or snap-on lid, where the lid
is flexible so that the lid can be deformed to engage the rim of a rigid or
For example, the container may be relatively rigid compared to the
flexible lid, such as a rigid paper or plastic container or the like, or a
glass, ceramic, porcelain, or metal container.
Once a liquid is repackaged in a container with a flexible lid, the user may
wish to dispense the liquid using a fluid pump, to eject the liquid in fluid
or foam form upon depression of the fluid pump.
If the user were to form a hole through the flexible lid for mounting the
fluid pump thereon, upon each depression of the fluid pump, the panel of the
lid would deflect down towards the interior of the container, absorbing much
or all of the energy intended to pump liquid from the container, resulting
in severely reduced liquid flow.
A device is needed that permits a user to us a fluid pump on a wide variety
of containers compatible with flexible lids.
Suggestion: Take supplied flexible lid to your local Walmart, Target, K-Mart, Kohl's,
Macy's, 99cent, Dollar Day or Goodwill and
do some fit testing.
Perfect Holiday gift for someone you love who washes their hands more than
once a day!
