  • Patent number: 5848733
    Abstract: A child-resistant liquid dispenser such as a trigger sprayer. The dispenser comprises a dispenser body, a nozzle, and a locking mechanism. The dispenser body has a nozzle receiving end and a discharge passage configured for discharging liquid through the nozzle receiving end. The-nozzle has a nozzle opening therein and is connected to the nozzle receiving end of the dispenser body. The nozzle is rotatable relative to the dispenser body about a nozzle axis X between open and closed positions. The nozzle and dispenser body are configured such that the nozzle opening is in fluid communication with the discharge passage of the dispenser body when the nozzle is in its open position to permit fluid to flow from the discharge passage and through the nozzle opening. They are further configured such that fluid communication between the nozzle opening and discharge passage is blocked when the nozzle is in its closed position to prevent fluid flow from the discharge passage and through the nozzle opening.

  • Patent number: 5823395
    Abstract: A child-resistant liquid dispenser, such as a trigger sprayer, includes a dispenser body, a pump mechanism having a pump piston, and a trigger connected to the pump piston so that movement of the trigger effectuates movement of the pump piston. The pump mechanism is configured to draw liquid into an intake port of the dispenser body and discharge it through a discharge port upon reciprocating movement of the pump piston. The child-resistant liquid dispenser also includes a first locking mechanism which is engageable with the pump piston in a manner to prevent movement of the pump piston when in a locked position. The first locking mechanism is configured to permit normal movement of the pump piston when in an unlocked position. The child-resistant liquid dispenser further includes a second locking mechanism. The second locking mechanism is configured to releasably engage the first locking mechanism in a manner to releasably retain the first locking mechanism in its locked position.

  • Patent number: 5446940
    Abstract: A toothbrush whose tufts comprise three distinct groups of rows, with each row oriented transversely to the longitudinal axis of the head. The tufts of the first group are the shortest. The endmost tufts on each row of the second kind tilt laterally outwardly by about 12 degrees. The tufts of the third group are nearest the end of the head farthest from the handle and diverge from each other. In one embodiment, each tuft of the third kind tilts laterally at an angle of about 30 degrees and forwardly at about 14 degrees. In a first embodiment, each row of the first group comprises a single, wide tuft. In a second embodiment, each row of the first group has a plurality of laterally spaced round tufts. In a third embodiment, each row of the first group comprises a plurality of laterally spaced quadrangular tufts. All of the tufts may also be considered as defining four functional groups of tufts, with each of these four groups performing a specific function during brushing.

  • Patent number: 5398369
    Abstract: A toothbrush is described whose handle has a special arrangement. The handle includes an elongated handle arm formed of a plastic having a Shore Hardness value of at least 90. A pressure pad is attached to the arm and formed of an elastomer having a Shore Hardness value no higher than 80. Advantageously, the elongated handle arm has a recess in an area adjacent to connection with the brushhead. The pressure pad is arranged within that recess. At least one radial anti-slip structure, especially a semi-ring shape, protrudes from and circumscribes bottom and lateral surfaces of the arm.
