  • Patent number: 11383897
    Abstract: A pivotable disc closure actuator, a closure including the actuator and the closure combined with a bottle or other container. The actuator includes a closing surface which includes a product dispensing opening at a front thereof, at least two pivots on the closing surface, an extension panel extending from a peripheral wall of the closing surface and having a locking and an unlocking position, the pivots being intermediate the product opening and the extension panel, and the extension panel having a latch member extending inwardly toward the closing surface when the extension panel is in the locked position. The closure may include a closure base which may in turn include a cutout or opening in its outer wall. In its locked position the extension panel may rest on a surface of the cut out or outer wall to prevent the actuator from rotating from its closed position to an open position.

  • Publication number: 20220212841
    Abstract: A plug for use in a cap assembly of a refill capsule is disclosed. The plug (300) generally comprises a hollow tubular body (302) with an open proximal end that is surrounded by a first rim (304) that provides a proximal abutment surface for bearing against a frangible sealing component of a cap assembly. A tubular skirt wall (306) is arranged coaxially with respect to the tubular body, and extends around the skirt wall (306) to form a plug recess (308) between the skirt wall (306) and the tubular body (302). The skirt wall (306) extends from a skirt distal end at which the skirt wall (306) is connected to the tubular body (302), to a free proximal end. The free proximal end of the skirt comprises an outwardly extending flange (310) comprising a distal facing abutment surface (312) for abutting a rim (406) of a refillable vessel (400).
