This invention also provides an added utility feature with the insertion and removal of the product as well as reduces material costs. Currently, this invention is being applied to all current mice, but it is not beyond its scope to accomodate future mice. This invention displays leadership in package design because it is a new standard which is a one piece solution for all mice.
