A tap dispenser for fluid containers has been granted a patent (Publication Number: US11919765B2). The tap dispenser includes a tap body with an attachment portion, channel portion, and dispensing portion. The attachment portion connects to the container's spout, while the channel portion connects the attachment and dispensing portions. The dispensing portion features a valve stem guide with guide supports and a spring button. The tap dispenser can be in a closed position, where the valve prevents fluid flow, or an open position, allowing fluid to flow out.

Furthermore, the tap dispenser includes various configurations such as a curved lower wall, flat upper wall, and flat side walls in the channel portion. The valve has a stem and body with different diameters, a domed portion, and a seal surface. The attachment portion has a sealing surface for a secure connection to the spout. The dispensing portion includes a valve sealing surface, tapered surface, and finger supports. Another embodiment of the tap dispenser features a valve stem guide above the lower wall, guide supports extending above the valve stem guide, and a protective shroud. The dispenser can be in a closed position with the valve sealing the dispensing portion or an open position allowing fluid flow. The attachment portion can be threadably connected to the spout, and the channel portion may have a curved lower wall and flat upper wall with flat side walls.
