Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0756038A1] The tap consists of a stationary housing (1) with a pivoted tubular guide (2) for a flexible hose (5). The guide is U-shaped, and its free end section (20) is directed into a basin/sink. The water outlet (3) has a stop section, which engages on the free end section, when it is installed. The tubular guide is removably guided in the housing via a journal, so that it can be removed by the user when required. Unintentional removal is prevented by a ring groove on the journal, which axially engages with a snap lock.
