  • Patent number: 11407581
    Abstract: A dispensing system includes a container and an overcap. The container includes a central, longitudinal axis and a first outermost point. The first outermost point of the container is a first distance from the central, longitudinal axis along a first line perpendicular to the central, longitudinal axis. The overcap is coupled to the container and includes a pivotable trigger that is configured to pivot between an unactuated position and an actuated position. A second outermost point of the trigger is a second distance from the central, longitudinal axis along a second line perpendicular to the central, longitudinal axis when the trigger is in the unactuated position, the second distance less than the first distance. Further, the second outermost point of the trigger is to move toward the central, longitudinal axis when the trigger moves toward the actuated position.

  • Publication number: 20220234786
    Abstract: A reclosable pouch in combination with an elongate closure mechanism. The elongate closure mechanism includes a first base member disposed along a first sidewall. A pair of interlocking members extends from a first surface of the first base member, and are parallel to each other with a space therebetween. A plurality of partial indentations is disposed along a second surface of the first base member, extending longitudinally between the opposite ends of the elongate closure mechanism, and being visible between the opposite ends of the elongate closure mechanism. The pair of interlocking members extending from the first base member occlude and deocclude with a pair of interlocking members extending from the second base member, in order to resealably close the mouth. The plurality of partial indentations remains visible during the occluding and deoccluding.
