Standard Test Method for Reverse-Ratchet Torque of Type IA Child-Resistant Closures
|Publication Date:||10 September 1997|
1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the torque developed when Type IA child-resistant closures are rotated in the counter-clockwise direction. Type IA closures are reclosable continuous threaded closures that use a random push down while turning; no orientation of the push down force is necessary.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
