The water dispenser for quilting of the present invention is a
hand tool for dispensing a precise amount of liquid in a line on
a seam of a quilt. The dispenser includes a dispensing wheel and
a hollow plastic squeezable bottle body having two ends. The first
end has two prongs and an aperture disposed between the prongs.
The second end has a fill aperture through which liquid is poured
into the body; the fill aperture is closed by a screw cap. The wheel
is removably attached between the two prongs of the body. The wheel
has a channeled center flanked by two ridged sides. The channeled
center of the wheel is aligned with the aperture of the body to
receive the liquid. The liquid is then dispersed to the ridges of
the wheel and dispensed on the seam of the quilt as the wheel rotates.
A outlet valve structure of a water dispenser includes a body member,
a first controller, a second controller and a control switch. The
outlet valve has the function of controlling dispense and switch
of hot water, cold water and warm water. Therefore, only one of
such outlet valve is required for one water dispenser; and consequently,
the front panel area of the water dispenser is reduced.
A water dispenser valve assembly with a tube connected to a water
supply providing a passageway for the fluid. The water dispenser
assembly has a spring assembly including a pivot member operably
connected to a leaf spring. A pinch member is connected to the leaf
spring for moving against the tube to close the passageway. The
spring assembly is biased to close the passageway in the tube. An
activation member activated by a user moves the pivot member to
apply a force on the leaf spring causing the leaf spring to invert
back away from the tube and disengage the pinch member from the
tube to allow fluid to flow through the passageway.
A safety switch for a water dispenser includes a sealing ring movably
received in the channel to alternatively block communication between
the inlet and the outlet, a guiding rod securely received in the
sealing ring and having a first spring compressibly mounted around
an outer periphery of the guiding rod, a handle adapted to be pivotal
relative to the water dispensing tube and having a first distal
end securely connected to a second distal end of the guiding rod,
a support engaged with an outer periphery defining the channel and
a sliding block movably sandwiched between the support and the handle
so that movement of the sliding block relative to the support allows
the pivotal movement of the handle, which initiates an upward movement
of the guiding rod as well as the sealing ring such that the communication
between the inlet and the outlet is resumed.
