Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

A wipe dispenser designed with a contour shape to provide comfort and convenience by attaching dispenser belt clip or belt loop to user trousers for mobility. Compartments hold wipes secure with snap closure to protect wipe pack and insert wipe refills while dispenser is on the waist. Wide shaft window allow a fraction of wipe sheets to be pulled and leave at rest. Small compartment open and close with the touch of a finger. During the instant demand of a wipe, the user can snap open small compartment and slide out a sheet(s), thereby providing the user with accessibility. Thus a considerably more versatile wipe dispenser is provided, that can be portable to provide more convenience whenever in need and more freedom of movement during work or recreation.

This invention relates to sanitizer wipes dispenser, specifically to miniaturize sanitizer wipes dispenser having means that allow users to become mobile. Sanitizer wipes dispenser are often bulky, which can deny there user comfort and accessibility. Sanitizer wipes dispensers accessibility, is largely a matter of being portable, providing the dispensers user within arms length of a sanitizer wipe and a matter of providing the user with adequate freedom to move. Most wipe dispensers provide portability in only a rather narrow range of different shapes. So, wipe dispenser manufacturers have long sought means of effectively adjusting the suitability of wipe dispensers to fit a wider range of handling. Some examples of sanitary dispensers/cases are seen in the following U.S. patents:

Huang, U.S. Pat. No. 7,028,840, illustrates a package and method for storing and dispensing wet wipes in a pop-up format. This product is big and bulky. Have to rely on pop-up format for dispensing which will cause inconvenience if springs for pop-up feature, malfunctions. Another problem is the product cannot be operated with one hand due to the size and the pop-up mechanism.

Yelton, U.S. Pat. No. 6,729,498, utilizes a unitary living hinge and a pop-up cover. This product uses springs to open wipe dispenser which can be an inconvenience if malfunction occurs.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The invention is an improved wipe dispenser that is small in size with belt loop or belt clip on the back of the dispenser. These clips and loops give stability to the case when attached to user. A small compartment opens to encase a pack of wipes. The wipe compartment is snapped tightly to ensure that the pack of wipes, do not fall out. Another compartment is use to retrieve the wipes, which is air tight when snapped closed. Invention will come in assortment of colors.

Accordingly, several objects and advantages of the invention are to provide and improved wipe dispenser, to provide means of easy access, convenience for sanitary wipes during the time of need, to provide a dispenser that gives comfort while on the move, to provide a more user friendly, yet economical wipe dispenser. Still, further objects and advantages will become apparent from a study of the following description and the accompanying drawings.

It is to be understood that the above detailed description of embodiments of the invention is provided by way of example only. Materials used to make product are rubber, plastic, nylon and leather. Various details of design and construction may be modified without departing from the true spirit and scope of the invention as set forth in the appended claims.

The embodiments of the invention in which an exclusive property or privilege is claimed are defined as follows:

In operation, the case is carried on person(s) hip. The user can, when desired, use belt clip claim 11 or belt loop 12 to secure the case to pants. When the case is attached to trousers, three compartments are able to open (FIGS. 6 and 7).
