First, the Examiner reasons that the proposed modification would have been an obvious change in shape with no change in function. Ans. 4 (citing In re Dailey, 357 F.2d 669 (CCPA 1966)).

A change of shape does not make a product nonobvious where the claimed shape is not of functional significance and accomplishes the same purpose as the prior art shape. In re Dailey 357 F.2d at 672-673. However, such is not the case here.

Dailey, In re, 357 F.2d 669, 149 USPQ 47 (CCPA 1966) 2144.04
...
Because the proposed modification results in a change in function, the modification is more than an obvious variation of shape. See In re Gal, 980 F.2d 717, 719 (Fed. Cir. 1992) (finding of obvious design choice precluded when claimed structure and the function it performs are different from the prior art).
