Title: HAND-HELD PRODUCT DISPENSERS HAVING PRESSURIZED DELIVERY
Abstract:
A hand-held pressurized product dispenser (10) that includes a container (12) with a hand-engageable body portion, a valve mechanism (14) at the top of the container that is movable with respect to the container to cause pressurized discharge of the product, and a valve actuation lever (20) that is connected to the valve mechanism (14) and extends along the container body such that a larger displacement of the end of the lever causes a controlled, relatively smaller displacement of the valve mechanism, permitting adjustable 'throttled' delivery of the product. Also disclosed are: a product delivery member (60) that is attached to the top of container and has a product holding structure (68) that is positioned with respect to the valve mechanism to receive product and to hold the product in position for application; cam members (102, 106,fig. 11) are oriented to cause the valve actuating lever (108, fig. 11) to move downward as it is moved toward the container body: and a movable stop member (114, 124 figs. 12 and 13) that is carried on the container and faces the hand-engageable portion (108) so as to limit travel of the hand-engageable portion toward the container.
