The valve element may be biased to the closed position by a spring such as an elastomeric diaphragm. The elastmeric diaphragm may seal the chamber and be exposed such that depressing the d...
The invention claimed is: 1. A spigot comprising: a rigid first conduit in fluid communication with a container; a valve body in fluid flow communication with the first conduit disposed at an oblique angle relative to the first conduit; a valve element for selectively moving between an open position and a closed position to control flow of liquid from the valve body, said valve element disposed in said valve body and at said oblique angle relative to the first conduit such that a diaphragm for actuating the valve element projects away from the container...
