For comparison, the above photo shows our two types of
lotion pumps side by side
Two bottles on left
shown with fine rib saddle head lock down style
lotion pumps. They have "open" and a
(clockwise) directional arrow
on the top of the head. To open a lock down style
lotion pump turn head to
unlock and unscrew head from the closure and pop up for
use. Head can be turned to the left or the right once
in the open position
Two bottles on right shown with smooth lock up
style lotion pumps; locked/closed and open.
They have an arrow with "stop" and
"open" on the top of the head.
To open a lock up style lotion pump turn head a
quarter turn from the stop to open position
(counter-clockwise). The way they work they offer an
extra check you've screwed them on all the way as they
won't open if not screwed on tight. Can be easily reclosed/locked.
To reclose turn head a quarter turn (clockwise)
back to the stop position
