This test method of applying force may be used as a standard test to compare the characteristics of a given design of container/child-resistant closure system with a standard or to compare the characteristics of container/child-resistant closure systems differing in construction.
It may be used to simulate certain manipulations that may be expected to occur in protocol testing (such as, prying with the teeth or objects in the room, biting, and pulling with the teeth).
This test method may be used to establish performance specifications.
1.1 This test method covers the measurement of theforce required to separate (or “shell”) thesnap-fitted outer cap from the inner cap of Type IA, IB, or ICchild-resistant closures.
1.2 This test method does not measure the forcerequired to separate parts of a child-resistant closure system thatwere originally “screwed-on” instead of “snapped-on” (forexample, pull a cap over or through continuous or multi-startthreads when the cap was originally screwed on).
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regardedas the standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are forinformation only.
1.4 This standard does notpurport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associatedwith its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standardto establish appropriate safety and health practices and determinethe applicability of regulatory limitations prior touse.
