Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19835569A1] The present invention relates to a stowable spigot for beverage cans (3) that comprises an outer sleeve (4) with an arrester mechanism for insertion into the opening of the can. The outer sleeve (4) comprises a sliding inner sleeve (8) that supports a gripping member (9) located outside the can. A plug (10) formed at the inner end of the sleeve is sealed with a protection cap (11) located on the outer sleeve when the inner sleeve is fully introduced into the outer sleeve. Once the outer sleeve is removed, the protection cap uncovers a channel (12) formed therein. The inner sleeve further includes a push-valve (14) having a drain hole (29) associated therewith. The sleeves are interconnected through a cam (19) and through a curvilinear slot (20) for driving the inner sleeve towards the outside upon rotation of the gripping member. The outer sleeve comprises a draw hole which is located below and is closed by an insert. The draw hole is located adjacent to the abutment, while the insert can be ejected by the cam.
