Title: TAMPER EVIDENT CLOSURE, CONTAINER WITH THE CLOSURE, AND METHOD FOR SCREWING THE CLOSURE ONTO A CONTAINER
Abstract:
A method for securing a tamper evident closure to a container includes providing a prethreaded closure that is defined by a top portion (12) and a skirt portion (14) that extends from the top portion. The skirt portion defines an inner closure thread surface (28) and an opposed outer closure thread surface (27) of at least one closure thread (26). The skirt portion also includes a tamper evident band (24). The prethreaded closure is rotated to engage the at least one closure thread with at least one container thread of a container. The inner closure thread surface contacts a surface of the at least one container thread. The tamper evident band of the prethreaded closure is rolled to secure the tamper evident band to the container.
