By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Politics & Government Week -- According to news reporting originating from Washington, D.C., by VerticalNews journalists, a patent application by the inventors TOH, Kiat-Cheong (Forest Hills, NY); Cummings, Bruce (New York, NY), filed on September 18, 2014, was made available online on September 7, 2017.

The assignee for this patent application is Colgate-palmolive Company.

Reporters obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Personal hygiene product dispensers, often referred to as bottles or 'tottles,' may be configured to hold and dispense products such as shampoo and/or conditioner. Such dispensers are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. Generally, the dispensers have a body with a reservoir in which the product is stored, and a sealable cap. One or both of the body and the cap define an orifice that communicates with the reservoir, to allow the product to be dispensed when the cap is open.

"The caps may be configured to open and close in different manners. For example, caps may be a single piece that is removable from the body, such as by relative rotation. In another example, the caps may have a base coupled with the body and a lid connected to the base via a hinge. The lid may pivot toward and away from the base, and thus the body, by action of the hinge. In the latter case, a lip is sometimes provided on the lid to facilitate a user applying the requisite pivoting force on the cap.

"The caps are generally formed from a molded plastic, and thus generally include a 'part line' where two dies were engaged together. Moreover, the part line in a pivoting cap is generally formed at the base of the lid, and generally extends along the lip. Thus, the user's finger may contact the part line while applying the pivoting force. Since the part line typically forms a relatively narrow ridge, contact therewith may be uncomfortable to a user when opening the cap and especially so when die wear and tear results in increased flash at the part line."

In addition to obtaining background information on this patent application, VerticalNews editors also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "Embodiments of the disclosure may provide a cap for a dispenser. The cap may include a base defining an orifice therethrough, and a lid pivotally coupled with the base. The lid may include a top surface, a bottom surface that is opposite to the top surface, a plug extending from the bottom surface for a first distance, and a brim extending from bottom surface for a second distance that is less than or equal to the first distance. The brim includes a first curve at least partially extending from the bottom surface away from the top surface, and a second curve at least partially extending from the top surface, away from the bottom surface. The brim defines at least a portion of an engagement surface that faces at least partially away from a centerline of the lid. The cap is operable between an open position and a closed position. When the cap is in the closed position, the plug is received into the orifice, and when the cap is in the open position, the orifice is exposed.

"Embodiments of the disclosure may also provide an apparatus for dispensing a product. The apparatus may include a hollow body to contain the product therein and comprising one or more corners. The apparatus may also include a cap. The cap may include a base forming an interference fit with the hollow body and defining an orifice. The base includes one or more corners positioned to mate with the one or more corners of the hollow body, and a lid pivotally coupled with the base and including a top surface, a bottom surface that is opposite to the top surface, and a brim including a first curve extending from the bottom surface, away from the top surface, and a second curve extending from the top surface, away from the bottom surface, wherein the brim defines at least a portion of an engagement surface that faces at least partially away from a centerline of the lid, the lid further comprising one or more corners positioned to mate with the one or more corners of the base. The cap is operable between an open position and a closed position. When the cap is in the closed position, the lid covers the orifice, and when the cap is in the open position, the lid is pivoted away from the orifice.

"Embodiments of the disclosure may also provide a method for manufacturing a cap. The method includes injecting a plastic into a mold to form the cap. The cap includes a base defining an orifice therethrough, and a lid pivotally coupled with the base and including a top surface, a bottom surface that is opposite to the top surface, a plug extending from the bottom surface by a first distance, and a brim. The brim includes a first curve extending from the bottom surface, away from the top surface, and a second curve extending from the top surface, away from the bottom surface, wherein the brim defines at least a portion of an engagement surface that faces at least partially away from a centerline of the lid. The brim extends from the bottom surface for a second distance that is less than or equal to the first distance. Further, the cap is operable between an open position and a closed position. When the cap is in the closed position, the plug is received into the orifice, and when the cap is in the open position, the orifice is exposed. The method may also include waiting for the plastic in the mold to at least partially solidify, and removing the cap from the mold.

"Further areas of applicability of the present invention will become apparent from the detailed description provided hereinafter. It should be understood that the detailed description and specific examples, while indicating the preferred embodiment of the invention, are intended for purposes of illustration only and are not intended to limit the scope of the invention."
