 As such, both design choices would have been obvious.  See ACCO Brands Corp. v. Fellowes, Inc., 813 F.3d 1361, 1367 (Fed. Cir. 2016) (explaining that where combining elements of the prior art would present one of ordinary skill with two design choices, each of the two design choices is an obvious combination of the prior art; “even if one possible obvious combination falls outside of the claims, if fails to undercut the fact that the other possible obvious combination lies within their scope”)
