How Tamper-Proof Bottles Work

Tamper-Proof BottlesYou want to consistently provide the best products possible for your customer base. That’s true whether you’re a small supplier or a major manufacturer. We can help at Packaging Concepts, Inc. by providing valuable information on how tamper-proof bottles work. You can use this knowledge to find a supplier for the containers you need to distribute your products in complete confidence. Your customers can choose them with the same level of trust.

The ubiquitous child-resistant bottles are the primary types of tamper-proof bottles with which we’re all familiar. They are obviously designed to prevent children from accessing the contents of a bottle. It’s easy to think of many products with such closures, with medicines being the most common. There are four different types of child tamper-proof bottles:

  • Line-Up the Triangles
  • Push the Tab Down and Turn
  • Squeeze Sides and Turn
  • Push Cap Down and Turn

The names are pretty self-explanatory for these closure systems. The key is that the opener needs to apply a combination of dexterity, strength, and reading skills that many young children do not have.

Tamper-evident caps can provide evidence that the product has already been opened and therefore should be treated with caution if just purchased from a retailer. It could mean the container has been damaged in shipping with the seal being broken, for instance.

These caps and closures are an intelligent way to add an extra level of security to all your products and peace of mind for your customers, too.
