How does the consumer reset a closure once it has been opened?
Once a closure has been opened and the vacuum released, the consumer will place their thumb on the product side of the button and simply press the button to pop it back into place allowing the score to reset.
Will the Closure leak once it has been opened and it falls on its side?
Tests have been conducted pertaining to this issue. In the tests, a closure was opened and reset, then placed on a container filled with water and weighed. The containers were either laid on their side or turned upside down for seven days. In all tests conducted, the maximum amount of water that escaped was less than one-tenth of an ounce after seven days causing no degradation in product freshness.
Is there product degradation?
The Consumer opens the closure by pushing the button downward, releasing the vacuum and then the consumer resets the button. The degradation of the food product is no more at risk than when opening and closing the closure multiple times removing the product for consumption.
What improvements have been made to the design concerning safety issues?
With CCT’s 180-degree score design, there was a concern that consumers might injure or cut their finger while pushing the button downward. A new, smaller score design has been implemented so that the consumer's thumb will be less exposed to the score as in the previous design which drastically reduces the possibility of injuring or cutting oneself. The current design also gives the consumer an easier way of resetting the closure once opened for storage and future use.
