    Significance and Use

    These test methods may be used in establishing and confirming quality control standards.

    These test methods may be used to establish performance standards for Type IIA child-resistant packages.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods measure the downward forces during the disengagement of lug-style caps from their respective containers.

    1.2 These test methods measure the maximum torque developed while the cap is further disengaged by turning of the container.

    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.
