  • Publication number: 20190283944
    Abstract: A tamper evident closure comprises a cap having a plug, a skirt and a locking member. The cap and the skirt have seats in which a first portion and a second portion of the locking member are arranged. Upon first opening, as the cap moves longitudinally away from the skirt, the lower edge of the cap passes over the first portion longitudinally so that, upon reclosing the closure, the first portion positions in an obstructive manner between the lower edge of the cap and the upper edge of the skirt.
